Wedding Anniversary; The Fed Testifies

My Schedule…and A Little Extra:  On Saturday I celebrated my 11th wedding anniversary.  Every other year we take turns on who plans the anniversary and this year it was my turn so I had to plan it (I mean I got to plan it).  As you may or may not know my wife is a travel writer and planner-extraordinaire.  She is kind and thoughtful and thoughtful (yes, I said it twice).  When she plans the night there is usually a theme involved.  This is a very intimidating standard for any typical man to live up to.  Well, I think I pulled it off (I definitely pulled it off).  We started out the day like normal with swim lessons for the kids and then dropped them at a neighbor’s house just after lunch – the babysitter would take over from there later.  I had planned to take the family to a play that morning but my wife gave me a pass that it was overkill (whew!).  So, my wife and I went to La Jolla for a quick bite and then couples massages complete with flower petals, chocolates and champagne.  Although it was a little corny for us, the service was great, the massages were excellent, and the overall experience was memorable.  After our facials (yes, we got facials too and yes, I got one) we went to dinner at Eddie V’s with a view overlooking La Jolla cove.  Not shabby, eh?

My Market Watch:  Rates are better today and as low as I’ve seen them if memory serves.  Ben Bernanke, the Federal Reserve Chairman, testifies to the House and Senate this week.  We know he has to address the issues our economy faces but it’s scary to think what action they might take…the government’s involvement in our business has not exactly been stellar…at least that’s this AE’s opinion….  Disclaimer
