In Other News

I know Bernanke spoke today.  Frankly, I don’t care at the moment.  He said what he said, the market reacted the way it reacted to that message.  I’ll get back to that soon enough.

But for now, the biggest going on here in Kure Beach?  We arrived at our favorite cottage (i.e. home away from home)…

We went to a ribbon cutting since our friends took over management of a new property.  A place that has been there since the 1930s…

And the one and only Gyro stand with a walk-up window is now a burger shack.  Beach House Burgers to be exact…

And we met the mayors of both Kure and Carolina Beach, the two towns on the island.

Amazing what a 4 hour drive can do to your perspective.  I enjoy coming here precisely for that purpose.

Well, it’s getting late on the island.  I’m going to do something I haven’t done in ages.  Sack out early.

Good night, folks…

Going Coastal

I just wanted to take a brief moment and inform all three of my readers (myself included) I am going to be taking a break from the normal financial and macro-related fare you find on this piece of blog.  I’ll be at the beach with my family for the rest of the month, taking a well-deserved and long overdue reprieve.

I’ll still have some posts, but they’ll be a different kind.  Perhaps a bit more personal, maybe even a bit more poignant.  There’s bound to be more photos.  Maybe even a video or two.  I haven’t thought that far ahead.

But it’s good to get away.  The ongoing nightmare known as European interbank lending isn’t going anywhere.  Neither is the debate on FinReg.  Nor the bigger macro backdrop complete with de-leveraging and debates about fiscal stimulus and whether or not central banks drove the macroeconomic bus off the proverbial cliff.  If all of that changed on a dime simply because I wasn’t blogging it, well, I guess I’ll shut up and let everything turn for the better.

But I know it won’t and you know it won’t.  These issues and the debate about how we respond to them will rage on, regardless of what any one of us might think or feel.

So in the meantime I’m going to take the opportunity to listen more attentively to my wife when she asks me to do something (an area I’m sure I have constant room to improve on), to play a bit more with my son and in general, let some of this stuff fade into the background…

And find something else to talk about for a little while…
