“The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 88 points, or 0.8% to 10964 in early trading.”
A 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.
