    Finding employees willing to work is a real problem for companies right now because of the unemployment benefits being made available. My daughter and her husband live near Medford and are remodeling their kitchen right now. Home Depot in Phoenix is where they're getting everything and they said it's a nightmare because the store is so understaffed they can't find anything there or get people to help them.

    I think you offered fair. There's mi to il loads on the board posted for $1400-$1500 and ia is longer distance.

    That broker is cheap.

    Last week during one of their earnings calls, BOA is predicting "Transitory Hyperinflation Ahead.”

    Apparently the term "Transitory" is the new buzz phrase.


    I wish I had purchased a whole truckload of plywood last year and off loaded it at my house.

    Buckle yer seat belts...

    Yeah I’ve been saying that for a while. Somehow the “experts” are just starting to catch on or still haven’t at all. It’s crazy no matter what sector of the economy you talk about.

    About an hour ago I was passed by 5 empty bull racks with Washington plates here in NorCal heading south. I got on my radio and said, #####, the cattle business must be kicking butt right now. One of them replied, we have more work than we know what to do with. I never really thought about it, but I wonder if pulling cows is high paying work? Not that I'd ever want to do it.
     
    PPDCT Thanks this.
