These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

Twas the week before Christmas and all through the house a sigh could be heard from this very tired spouse. 

The house is decorated, the shopping’s done and the wrapping will get done on Friday.  Time to sit down to a quiet breakfast and enjoy the blessed stillness of early morning. 

It’s also time to reflect on the ghosts of Christmas past and share with you a few of my favorite things.

Can a Birkin Beat the Stock Market?

The day following the election of Donald Trump all eyes were on the stock market, which was predicted to plunge to near Great Depression era levels by most of the same people who predicted that Hillary Clinton would win. 


In fact, as of this writing, the stock market has hit record highs, to the relief of those of us who realized that with interest rates kept artificially low over the last ten years or so, the stock market was really the best, if not the only, game in town.
