    As far as rates in March, they're not that hot on my lane. I'm going to have to pick up the volume as well :cool:

    These are my first week of March numbers, pretty dang anemic. Nights in my own bed at home = 5.

    Received a notice of payment owed from the IRS yesterday. I filed the annual reconciliation report for FUTA 940 form for 2019 and was $12 short! They charged me 0.12 for failure to pay and 0.05 interest. Threatened to send collection agents over if I don't pay the $12.17 by the end of March!

    Keep America Great! LOL

    If you have $$$ in the market, best not look at your portfolio too closely this week.

    Looks like its gonna be a #### show on the stock market tomorrow. Oil dropped like crazy and I am reading it might drop down to $20 in May

    Yeah. Sometimes, I'd give a lot to be like your avatar boxer, completely oblivious to what's going on out there. Just sleep it off. LOL

    I thought it was a great week. I sold two thirds of my portfolio week before last on a hunch from my dad who has an uncanny knack for predicting downturns, and kept a few that did really well. Now that most of the ones I sold bottomed out, I'll be buying many of them back this week.

    That loud screeching sound that might have woke you up this morning was all the brakes being slammed on in the oil patch.

    Ehhh.... I thought I'd see S&P nose diving by at least 1000 points but it was a small slide, almost insignificant when you look at it from the last 4 years perspective.

    Nothing to be excited about.

    No doubt. Which sucks, because I do a fair amount of drilling supplies. We'll see what happens.
