I try not to let the state of the economy get me down, but its hard to ignore. Hard times is right. We need some good news, and I need a J-O-B. If some news station wants to up their ratings, finding a niche of bringing to light the positives of the economic downturn could be just the thing. God knows we need it.
On a side note: I try to leave issues of personal relationships out of my blog, to have a semblence of a private life reserved from the web. But I just have to thank D. and her family for a wonderful birthday, and to say that I couldn't be happier with someone than I am with her. That's all.
