Daily Drivel

I noticed that St Croix got their credit rating yesterday of BBB- for their new 30 Million bond issue. Not too bad considering the economy and their lack of bond history. How can you go wrong with rum backed bonds though?

Around here our local unemployment rate has topped 12% and rising. This is unheard of in these parts. I sure hope the "trickle up" federal stimulus approach will trickle up soon. There are a lot of people to fill the wind mill and power grid jobs at present but I don't see anything whirling except jaws flapping.

We are down to a very lean mixture of daylight at 9.9 hours and falling. What daylight we are getting is obscured by clouds or very low in the sky which is bright in the face and casts long shadows. Saturday calls for snow flurries and Sunday will be cold and windy at the game. I must build a Wreggie room where the lights are bright, the humidity is high, and the fake windows show summer or tropical views when you look at them.

I am always surprised and caught off guard when someone with an opposing position turns so quickly to anger when I unveil my opinion. Just because I don't "think right" doesn't mean you need to be so pissed off. How about a little civilized dialog? I don't get mad when I listen to your drivel.

I think you should find real windows that show summer or tropical views when you look at them.

It's funny how people are with opinions... Everyone loves theirs but can't stand to hear other peoples.

A Wreggie room is a fabulous idea! You could market this! Customize them. I want mine with flowing sheers on the windows that blow in the fake ocean breeze. You could set them up with sound systems. I want to hear the ocean waves through mine and maybe the sound of gulls cawing outside. And calypso music would be good too!

Terri that sounds great.

liberals seem to be that way with opinions. Disagree with them, and they immediately go for the jugular.

A wreggie room would be ideal. I would move there.

As far as the unemployment it's pretty crazy the differences from area to area. But ever since Sep 08 it seems to just be sliding. But a lot of the big manufcturing places in NC and elsewhere continue to outsource to penny pinch. And that's not cool. I see it all the time in my enormous financial institution I work for.
