Btw on an unrelated matter I got a printout of expenditures at BJs in past 14 months.


102 bottles of Argentine Malbec split about evenly between Alamos and Trapiche

I wasnít too surprised

Whew. Did you have to pay points to get it to 2.5%
no points

The funny thing is something happened 6 months before that and we got the Heisman from the loan company
so once that was straightened out, we submitted our application/lock on pretty much the best day


I donít find the inflation data very relevant in my life.
you are not wrong...kinda meaningless (especially without historical data, back of the envelope suggests 25% cumulative inflation in the last bunch of years)
but it does look good and like something got done
just windowdressing and I'm a purevor

GDP report shows real GDP grew at an annual rate of 4.9% in Q3

Edit:
The impact of inflation still hurts the common person
I feel this this is good data that the economy is going in the right direction

Now itís even less intelligible!

Are you saying GDP growth hurts people?

GDP growth and inflation are two entirely different concepts. GDP growth does not necessarily mean more or less inflation. Just means the value of the goods and services a country produces has gone up which means the country is wealthier.

Gold over 2k

Time to look up how much gold I bought and still have from when I was a little kid and my parents paid me a pittance for working on the family farm that managed to add up because I had nothing to spend it on and I bought gold because my mom was a weird Christian who told me that one day the economy would crater and gold would be the only thing worth anything and I totally believe my uneducated mom on economic matters because she was my mom and parents are always right at that age.

This is definitely a contender for the best run-on sentence in the history of the forum.
