Well, my weekend is over. I'll be working for the next 5 days. I did apply for that fixed schedule position. The hours would be 9:30 - 6, Monday thru Friday. I could live with that.
I also got a letter form the Social Security Administration explaining my increase. The whole thing stems from my early retirement when I was 62. Major back surgery had been planned and there was a question about how well I'd walk afterwards. Well, the surgery didn't happen because I retrained myself to walk (I have a bit of a shuffle now) and I went back to work... full time. If you're retired you are only allowed to work part-time without being penalized. My thought was, well, let them penalized me. I was making a lot more full time than I would have made working part-time and collecting benefits. They sent me letters: You're making too much money, we can't pay you benefits. For almost 4 years they didn't pay me benefits. Now, those benefits are being paid in the form of adjustments upwards and higher monthly checks. They also notified me that they may go up again. I'm all for that.
And, for those who didn't hear, there was a bit of an oopsy on Wall Street yesterday. A drop of over 800 points! And, of course, the Idiot Jerk blamed the Fed (Powell) for not dropping interest rates. You see, investors want companies to make lots of money, which means consumers need to buy, buy, buy. Investors want you to be in debt up to your eyeballs. Your financial pain is not their responsibility.
This morning John Hickenlooper is going to end his run for President. He is going to run for the Senate instead. This is what Republicans are afraid of... losing the Senate.
I also saw this bit about multi-tasking, evidently that bit about women being better than men is not quite right. Both men and women made the same number of mistakes when doing simultaneous tasks. While there may be some tasks where one gender might excel better than the other, in the end we are all equal. Republicans will never believe this, however, since in their minds women are always the weakest link. But then everybody knows Republicans are dumb as bricks.
