We have not had a freeze in years. Tonight calls for 9 with snow. Wow. Scary. Shopped for rest of week. Wrapped pipes filled tub downstairs. Lots of drinking water. Made gumbo and chuck roast. Lots of veggies and chicken pieces for chicken soup. Baking our favorite cake and berries in freezer for quick cobbler.
Just want to note that while the Fed started collecting data on household savings, the EU only started in 1999.
Now the U.S. Senate is reluctant to distribute pandemic relief because household savings have grown to 20%.
Who runs Amy Barrett’s household? Her husband and his aunt. So she can go traipsing off to lecture and give speeches—just as if she were judging flower shows or quilting contests.
Republicans have only one interest. Status.
Learning during the pandemic.
An experiment in combining two images with some adjustment of the color. First try.
The financial class is convinced their woes are the result of rules that make their wheeling and dealing accountable to supervisors. They refuse to accept that the problem lies in the fact that they are dealing in worthless stuff and the effort to create artificial value by rationing the distribution of dollars is bound to fail.
Some economists describe industrial development as the work of men moving out of the house. (Never mind that in the U.S., initial industrial enterprise in the fabric mills of New England was carried out by women). On the other hand, an anthropologist describing the social organization of African societies in legislative bodies, referred to that as the important work of the men, while the women managed the household and traded in the market.
So, perhaps we have another inverse relationship here: the greater the power, the lower the performance. I say “another” because in the case of disutilities (goods and services the recipient do not positively want) the relationship between performance and profit is inverse. But, in that case, it is greater/better performance that results in lower profits.
Hello, Mr. S
It has been a while.
Your last email said I should let it go wild, but people go there quite often. There are children and their parents come to walk and play, college students settle down at the picnic table, and even during the winter children come there to ice skate or build a snow man. So, I am not going to let it grow wild. I will keep maintaining the playground as long as I am able, because I enjoy doing it. Maintaining the playground is like therapy for me and I like looking at our creation.
