Hello Winter...
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and didn't eat to much!! We enjoyed the big games on Thanksgiving and my wife Donna and daughter Rachael did a little black Friday shopping, as I am sure many people did.
I in turn always wait until the last week before Christmas to do my shopping ...but I always get it done.
My wife and I had a great Christmas we had both of our children and daughter in-law home with us for Christmas, which is always nice. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
For the most part 2018 has started off very cold... I would like the shoveling of the snow to be done soon, I am looking forward to some warm weather and getting the Harley out of the garage.

Monthly Economic Update


January 2018

Financially speaking, the last month of 2017 was also the year's most newsworthy. Congress reformed federal tax law to a degree unseen since the 1980s, the Federal Reserve raised the benchmark interest rate, and bitcoin took its investors for a wild ride. Hiring, retail sales, and personal spending numbers were all impressive, as were consumer confidence index readings. The residential real estate market showed more momentum. Oil closed above $60 again. Emerging stock markets rallied; European equity benchmarks struggled. As all this transpired, the S&P 500 gained nearly 1%. 1
Recipe of the quarter : Creamy (Crock Pot) Potato Soup

This is a little healthier than the version made with heavy cream and whole milk. It reminds me of restaurant-style loaded baked potato soup.


How Millennials Can Get a Good Start on Retirement Planning

Some simple steps may make a major financial difference over time.

If you are younger than 35, saving for retirement may not feel like a priority. After all, retirement may be 30 years away; if your employer does not sponsor a retirement plan, there may be less incentive for you to start.

Do bad money habits constrain your financial progress?
Many people fall into the same financial behavior patterns year after year. If you sometimes succumb to these financial tendencies, the New Year is as good an occasion as any to alter your behavior.

Are the days of itemizing over?
 Not quite, but now that H.R. 1 (popularly called the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act) is the law, all kinds of itemized federal tax deductions have vanished.
