october surprise

So, I read this a few minutes ago: “U.S. Added 114,000 Jobs in September; Unemployment Rate Fell to 7.8%”

Our stock portfolio and retirement accounts are doing well, as are the earnings of my spouse’s company and its parent corporation.

A friend of mine just bought a new car. The house up the street sold in late August for not too shabby a price–a price that signifies that when we need to sell ours, we won’t be hit as hard as we’ve been expecting (and saving for).

Yesterday, I learned that President Obama’s campaign fundraising total for September could exceed $150 million.

People have money to invest.

Here’s to many happy returns.
