I guess we have to pay the Chinese piper sometime for our extravagance of the late 2000s...all I know is my salary isnt rising at the cost of boating!
No kidding, got a whopping 3% raise last pay check. Then again, at least I am making something. spouse's biz has been losing for 5 yrs straight! Altho local the out of work % is now about 6.5% around the state 7.5, some some reasonable news I guess! Marina I am moored at raised rents some 4=5% IIRC a month or two ago.
