Stopping bye my old Co-op workplace, a young fella came up to me to proclaim, “I am working overtime so I can make the payments on my car so that I can go to work. What about you?”

I chuckled, not saying what I was really thinking … that I was pleased he was working, paying taxes, and contributing to my gov’t pension.  I chuckled, yes!  Smiled, and said, “I had retired last year.”

Darren has an experiment for us … a test of sorts.

Remember: For those who are prone to motivation by fear … you cannot fight fear with hope … you can only fight fear with FEAR.  You must find the greater fear in NOT following your suggestion.  To up the fear ante in the alternate choice.  To accept a lesser pain than a promise of pleasure.  😉

Sunny Day
Taken just minutes ago out our front door…

Good Afternoon World!

Sunny afternoon in Calgary¹ today… as I look forward to learning all I can in the next 4_days about Social Media.  I am enrolled in an online course which contains 41 modules … set your own pace.  We’ll see… complete one… move on to the next!

My wife is a lot better at keyboard & computer stuff so [Caryl] promises to help organize (adding descriptions and pics) as we prepare to open our virtual garage in our back office.  My book reading is coming along well also!

“Success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally. It comes from what you do consistently.”

Yes!  Slept in this morning, although I did manage to make breakfast for Caryl before she went to work!

Check email … posted a few things on Facebook, and later, checked on my stocks.  I invest online, without a broker.  I do so with a fair amount of know-ledge as I subscribe to several money-magazines & online trading publications and services.  Nice to see the market move, in the right direction … I’ve done well today!

Off to the dentist now, to get my teeth checked, cleaned, and polished…

…back from the dentist, ouch.  Need to brush more frequently and floss better!  All is very well.  Started preparing supper for when Caryl gets home, then I’ll probably return to my home-office for awhile, back to bed early tonight, as I’ve an early start tomorrow!

“When trauma comes, we can learn from it, heal from it, and move through it.” –Dr. James Gordon Listen, Pause, Clarify and Validate Our ability to communicate effectively is one of the most precious skills we can develop.  Most of the time, when we think of communicating well, we think of effectively expressing ourselves.  This is certainly important, but listening is the single most important of all communication skills.  It’s what Stephen Covey calls “Seek first to understand and then to be understood.” Listen First and foremost, we must actively listen to what someone is saying.  Perhaps we were given

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation numbers came in at a 15 year high.  But beyond the headlines, core inflation numbers have started to show a slowdown, with a rise of 0.2 percent from August.  It’s not a reversal, but a still-hidden sign that inflation may be moderating.  The bond market picked up on the news, with yields ticking down slightly. If that’s the case, then many of the fears impacting the market right now may go away.  That could explain part of Thursday’s rally, on top of the debt ceiling delay to December.  While we’re not out of the woods yet

Good morning. Inflation may be the headline story, but it’s just one factor that could impact corporate profitability this earnings season.  Many companies are able to pass on rising costs to customers from run-of-the-mill inflation.  But higher energy prices, which have been running hotter than official inflation measures, represent a much larger bill for many companies.  We’re already starting to see warnings on that front, including form airline companies, as oil prices hit a seven-year high. But there’s one more threat out there.  Last week, 136 nations signed an agreement on a minimum corporate tax rate of at least 15

Good morning. Earnings season is kicking off in earnest this week.  Typically, companies are able to beat expectations most of the time as Wall Street analysts adjust their expectations ahead of the results.  This time around, with companies coming off one-year numbers that look good from the lockdown era, combined with rising labor and energy costs, it’s possible that earnings may have peaked for the time being. If that’s the case, it comes down to guidance and expectations as to where the market goes from here into the end of the year.  With a labor market that’s still somewhat sluggish,

Good morning. One sign of an overvalued market occurs when company CEOs step down from their role, often after many years.  It’s tough to bow out at the top, and those who can will try to do so, rather than stay too long and get forced out after a bad decision or market events destroy shareholder value.  We saw a large rush of company executives leave in early 2020, just into the pandemic selloff. Now, that trend has slowed down.  But it’s not over yet.  Henry Kravis and George Roberts, founders of private equity giant KKR, are stepping down as

Good morning. The term “unicorn” was created to describe startup companies that had a valuation of over $1 billion based on their latest round of funding.  The notion was that such a company should be rare, as at that size it would make sense to take a company public. Yet today there are hundreds of unicorns.  The rare species has become a herd.  And none is bigger than SpaceX, the space exploration company run by Elon Musk.  A recent funding round has led the company to become the first centi-billionaire firm, with a valuation of over $100 billion. By the
