A LITTLE EXTRA…

Because It’s Fun!

volunteeringMy Schedule…and A Little Extra:   “Because it’s fun!” was the reason my daughter gave me for why we were at the San Diego Food Bank last night volunteering our time.  She was right, it was fun, but then I asked her if that’s the only reason we do it and she gave me the best answer, “because we need to help out those who can’t help themselves.”  Right on the money baby!  Last night I picked my daughter up from school and we hit In-N-Out Burger before going to the San Diego Food Bank.  They assigned us to the assembly line of filling a box of food for needy seniors.  Each box was filled with two boxes of cereal, 2 cans of fruit, 2 cans of veggies, a can of beef, a carton of milk, OJ, dry beans, rice, and a bag of dried milk…that was our assignment, put in the dried milk.  Some of the volunteers were kids getting credit for school, some were paying off community service, and some were like us, just doing our part as citizens.  The whole commitment lasted 2 hours and my daughter worked the whole time without a complaint.  Afterwards, we went to the donut shop.  I’m proud of her, and of me.

My Schedule:  I have a meeting in San Diego at 1p.

My Market Watch:  Pricing is worse today by a significant amount.  Traders are dumping money into the stock market and bonds are getting killed as a result.  It’s a locking environment until further notice.  My Disclaimer
