Well I just checked my page and noticed 3k subs. It has been a pleasure to talk to many of you and the serotonin hits from the rest keep me going. I have been busy in the garden and around the house for the last while so there hasn't been much in the way of original material, but I have a few economics ideas floating around in my head and I am getting close to sorting them out, just waiting for a bit more data. But I digress, Thanks to you my friends, you know who you are, thanks perhaps even more to those that are willing to have a go and "discuss" some of the more difficult subjects that plague our world.
