My wife and I recently moved and decided we need some new furniture. First, we built our home and that created jobs for everyone. But, while buying furniture, I was shocked at the busy sales clip I saw. Usually people shop for durables when they are optimistic about the future. In a small town like Muscatine, just about every business is a monopoly. I saw people eagerly buying new furniture which I interpret as a sign that we are turning the corner to recovery.
I've lost my Internet connect for the next week, so my posts will be irregular at best.
