State of the (micro) Economy

I paid $1.84 for a gallon of gas yesterday.

My annual bonus is about the same as last year. Do not confuse the annual bonus with the Christmas bonus nor with the profit sharing.

Thanks to the attic insulation that we installed a couple of months ago, I expect we're going to save a bundle on heating this winter. We did turn the heat on - on November 6th - and the thermostat is set at 65 degrees because the upstairs (where we spend 90% of our time) is a comfortable 70-something that way.

I haven't looked at my 401k, because there's no need to. I won't be touching it for years and years yet.

Despite what some people want me to believe, life is (still) good.

For a second there I thought you were going to say that your bonus was the same as what you paid for that gallon of gas.
