Hi Everyone! We had an enjoyable weekend with our company. I did manage to get the house, deck, barn and garage power washed on Saturday, it looks so nice. I am hoping to get all the windows washed this week. I hate going into the gloom of winter with dirty windows. (LOL) Sweetie and I are going to French Lick Springs Resort tomorrow, just for one night. We have a gift certificate that we need to use and wanted to do it while the weather was still nice enough to enjoy their beautiful gardens. I think our weather will be dry and cool, I am really looking forward to this.
Well today is the day they are supposed to vote on the “Band-Aid” for our economy. Sweetie took his paycheck to our little hometown bank on Saturday and was turned away….they have no money! They said maybe on Monday or Tuesday. It sounds like they had a run on this bank to me. Sweetie was able to drive to another town, to a bank branch and they had money so all is well for another week. Now banks failing in Europe, it sure makes you wonder if your money is safe doesn’t it? We don’t want to get hysterical and withdraw everything…but gee that means we will have to trust the federal government…hmmmmmm. It almost sounds like a lose, lose situation. I don’t know how they figure this Band-Aid will work. I think they are just buying themselves some time to get their own money out safely. I am sick to death of corporate greed and corrupt polititians!
Well here we are, I started writing this about 5 am. Since then my life kinda just took over, with a Dr. appt. and my day to be on Grandma Duty. The house has just voted against the $700 Billion Band-Aid. I am wondering what is next. I don’t think the people wanted it to pass. The stock market will be crashing soon. I think we are all just sick of it. The fear of the unknown is much less than our fear of the known, THE GREED and CORRUPTION. Tomorrow will be a new day for sure. We are in the midst of our own “paper” TEA PARTY. It has all just gotten dumped in the harbour! I will be glued to the news for the rest of the week.
