Brother can you spare . . .

The economy reminds me of an egg that has been cracked and poured out on the sidewalk to see if the day is hot enough to cook it. Bring your own knife and fork but be wary of those who carry their own utensils.

There is enough rue and guilt to season this giant omelet (or omelette if you prefer) really well. Dig in, this is a self-serve dining experience.

Antacid anyone?

Wonder if "Cash is King", will arrive back into our society.

Did you read about the condo on Brickell that required a down payment of nearly half of the total price before the couple could get a mortgage loan? $200,000 down on a total of $440,000. I would guess that the lending institution was insuring against the worth of the condo falling that much. Wow.

Or, maybe the owner owed that much on getting out from under his own debt and saw the buyers coming. I guess if you want something badly enough, you will arrange to pay the price demanded. We do well to keep paying the taxes on our paid off property. Count your blessings!

Paid in full. Not yet, on my way, and still have to pay taxes.
