    Good move because I think rates may come down a bit if the fed backs off their tightening due to the bank issues.

    You can also get that rate on brokered CDs through your investment account. I just got that same rate on a one-year Schwab bank CD. Convenient to buy and there's a secondary market if you need to sell early.

    yeah this is through Merrill Lynch and i have brokerage account w them already just wanted to see the local sleazeball banker get his commission since he brought it up
    looks like the consolidation of the banks has begun in earnest as well as the drive toward digital currency
    have to figure a real estate adjustment is inevitable in the short term but a year hedge is nothing
    when all those real estate hedge funds we saw form in the last few years can't get their 3-4% returns on investment that should signal the real deals coming
    inflation has to be flushing a lot of people out of their homes as well

    Bought a six and a three month T-Bill last week. 4.9% on the six month and 4.7% on the three. No state tax and liquid. Will be interesting to revisit these later in the year.

    We've been loving our snow in the nearby Sierras and the rain in the Valley. Not so much recently. Flood warnings all around. Luckily we're out of range of that.

    Thanks to the wisdom of the state and the feds we don't have adequate storage to keep some of that wet stuff for a dry year.

    we voted for reservoirs like 2 to 1 something like 6 years ago and newscum shut it down
    has to conservationists not wanting to give up the land or arrowhead likes things how they are
    probably both and as usual fuck the general public
    elitist no cals think its our fault for living here in socal
    meantime climate alarmists tripping on rain hitting the snow pack
    their moronic positioning is outrageous and then blame someone else

    His absence is noticeable and very discomforting.

    Or someone's paying it for him.
    And if he doesn't want to talk, then why pay at all?
    Unless it's us ?
    We are a horrible bunch, I guess.
