wsjfear101129A glance at the headlines of the Wall Street Journal this morning leaves me even more sour than does the gloomy and rainy day … although the at least the rain we need. It seems no matter where one looks around the world we humans have a knack for fear, worry, bailouts, declines and financial chaos and that doesn’t even address the two wars, nations vying to get their hands on nuclear weapons and the Korean peninsula on high alert.

On a personal note, business is still slow and it’s a struggle to even call on customers. In my area today there was an announcement that 222 jobs are disappearing as Fedx closes the West Chester Township office. In a conversation with a long friend and loyal customer yesterday he wondered aloud how long his polymer testing company can hold out without an influx of work. It’s no wonder I find myself considering chucking it all and sailing to the Caribbean or the south seas … or at least dreaming about doing it …  stay tuned.
