Easy PeasyGood morning.
Stocks jumped higher yesterday afternoon as the Federal Reserve kept interest rates at zero and kept in accommodating language in its statement.  Traders now expect the bank to refrain from raising interest rates into 2023.
While that’s what markets wanted to hear, it does run the risk of overstimulating the economy in the next few months as the pandemic lockdowns wind down.  While the Fed reported that inflation was running under 2 percent, a number of measures indicate higher prices in everything from food to homes.

Is the Fed right to hold off on raising interest rates until 2023, or should we brace for higher inflation?

Hit reply and share your thoughts.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

This image and message is circulating the globe … and with very good reason … but, I’m concerned with healthy peoples’ greater risk!

Being outdoors is 100% safe.

Please get outside and GET SOME SUN … whatever you do, please DON’T stay locked up inside your house … that’s the WORST thing you can do for your immune system right now.  You need to get outside and get some fresh air and sunshine (while still staying away from gatherings and practicing social distancing).  Now that we’re in late March, most areas in North America and Europe are getting warmer and sunnier, and getting sun on your skin is the biggest thing you can do to boost your immune system right now.  xan-griffin11
The aspect of vitamin D production in your skin from sun exposure is just one aspect of how sunshine boosts your immune system.  There are other reasons too, such as how the sun improves your mood, serotonin, balances hormones, etc.  It’s also important to note that getting vitamin D from sun exposure on your skin is thought to be significantly more beneficial for your immune system than a supplement.
So whatever you do, please make an effort to get outside for daily walks in the sun (without having your skin fully covered, since you need skin exposed to get the majority of the benefits), or get out-side and do some gardening or other yard work.  Or even just lay out in the sun if you have a deck (without getting burned of course).

brooklyn11Remember, getting outside doesn’t mean you have to be around a lot of people, or do anything risky at all.  You can still get outside and stay safe all while significantly boosting your immune system.  You will NOT catch coronavirus by breathing outdoor air.  That‘s basically impossible.  The virus only concentrates in indoor areas when you’re around people who are already infected and coughing.
It’s interesting to note that the coronavirus has been mostly clustered north of 30 degrees N latitude, but areas further south of that have been largely unaffected.  Many medical researchers believe, the reason for this is because the sun has been stronger south of 30 degrees N latitude, so most populations south of there have much stronger immune systems than people further north that haven’t seen any significant sun in the last 6 months.

There’s also a theory that this particular virus doesn’t like warmer temperatures, and while that may partially explain less infections further south, the aspect of sunshine and your immune strength is more likely the main reason for more infections further north and less further south.

I’ve been a follower of Mike Dillard and his “Self-Made-Man” podcasts for a great many years, gathering entrepreneur wisdom … to listen to … in either my “University on Wheels” or … while stocking the shelves of Calgary Co-op late at night.  Mike is revamping and doing a ‘life reboot of sorts’ — as a result — after watching the message below… head on over to Mike’s website to pick up a treasure-trove of $5_deals.

Hope you got value!  Until tomorrow… chow… 😉

Do You Have A Purpose? It’s true that in order to live our purpose in this world, we’ve got to have a vision and a plan for achieving our dreams.  We must be tenacious in working toward our goals, and we might occasionally have to sacrifice a little sleep for that dream.  However, our “hustle at any cost” culture has convinced us that this means choosing between success and quality of life (e.g. health, happiness and fulfillment).  This either/or mindset is not just inaccurate — it actually threatens our bottom lines and secretly sabotages success. The stress, exhaustion and decision

Good morning. Shortages or not, we’ve all seen rising prices on store shelves as a sign of inflation.  In some cases, prices have stayed the same, but the size of a package has shrunk.  This is a way to mask higher prices through a process known as shrinkflation.  But there are other ways to note the bite of higher price as well.  One such way?  The loss of amenities. For example, many hotels are now ditching their complimentary breakfasts.  While such food wasn’t necessarily good, it was a way to entice travelers to stay at a low additional cost.  With

Good morning. We’ve noted a few times over the past few months to get that holiday shopping done extra early this year thanks to supply chain disruptions.  But given some of the latest delays and reports from companies reporting earnings this year, the next thing on your holiday shopping list just might be groceries. While we’re not seeing the toilet paper shortage of last year, shortages in chicken, fish sticks, coffee among other food staples appear likely in the coming weeks.  And products such as diapers are seeing high demand right now as well.  Even if those shortages are resolved,

Good morning. The stock market has a number of seasonal patterns to it.  While it’s well-known that stocks tend to rally into the end of the year, in what’s known as the “Santa Claus” rally, that rally tends to start earlier than many expect.  This year, the start date is likely the first day of November, less than two weeks away. Why?  Because right now we’re in the midst of earnings season, when company insiders are locked out from buying or selling shares.  Companies are also in a lockout period for share buybacks.  And it’s those buybacks that have been

Good morning. Bull markets end on euphoria, but not until they’ve gone on far longer than many expect.  That seems to be the case in the commodity markets right now.  While traders are still considering that the price of a barrel of oil may hit $100, some are starting to bet that will just be a stop along the way to $200 per barrel, which would be a new all-time high for the commodity. And thanks to the recent uranium rally, a new fund that will hold physical uranium has been announced to take advantage of that move.  The announcement
