OK here’s my thought, I’m tired of the down turn, Yup had enough. Want more down turn? No, I’m good thanks. Sigh What are your feelings, on the subject? I know what the TV says, and I know what is going on in our lives just wondering what your thoughts are. I know what I would like, I would like it to be gracefully on an upswing, hell don’t make it graceful just make it turn up, the economy that is. My feelings, sadly is that we will have more hunkering down to do. I’m tired of hunkering, but as I look around I don’t see huge marked improvements, which tells me to keep cutting expenses shorten the outflow, increase the income and hold tight. A couple of years ago our town was booming with strip malls going in and new business galore especially anything that had to do with construction. Now when we go to town it is not uncommon to see another closed sign more for rent signs and lots of for sale signs. Not to be negative, OK maybe I am in a sour mood, but I figure the average blogger has more of a clue to what is really going on right now than the folks on the TV News. So what’s your take? Where are we? what do you think is going on? Where do you think we are going long term?
