 Dogs come when they’re called, cats try and work you into their schedule.

When your parents ask, ‘Do you want a piece of advice?’ it is a mere formality. It doesn’t matter if you answer yes or no. You’re going to get it anyway.

I choked on a carrot this afternoon, and all I could think was “I bet a donut wouldn’t have done this to me”

Now The Market Report . . .

Minutes from the last Fed meeting affirm obvious coronavirus concerns and underscore the Fed’s recent actions to keep rates low. 
Stocks have continued to rally after hitting a pandemic low in March, with some indices reaching new highs. However, mortgage rates have not risen, as often happens when stocks rally.
Continuing unemployment claims fell last week, though initial jobless claims unexpectedly rose back above 1 million, perhaps signaling a setback for the struggling job market.
Builder confidence in the market for newly built, single-family homes jumped 6 points to 78 in August, a record high for the NAHB Housing Market Index.
Homebuilding picked up for a 3rd straight month in July, with residential starts jumping by 22.6%. Construction surged at the highest rate since 2016, beating expectations.
Permits for future construction increased 18.8%, the most since January 1990. The 1.5 million annual rate topped the median estimate and is now above the February pre-pandemic rate.

“Nobody ever drowned in his own sweat.”
