It’s easy to get caught up in this time of year.  For many Americans, Christmas has an undeniable magic.  It’s different than every other time, more special, more optimistic.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average surged 337 points today, rising almost 3%.  When you look around you can find no good reason for the move.

After a strong move upward on Thursday of last week, when the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose an impressive 490 points, momentum has virtually stopped, as the Dow inches towards a point in which it can’t hold – 12,200. When you look around it’s easy to see that nothing has changed.  Europe is still a mess and close...

It was only a couple of days ago that the stock market showed some real attitude, surging 400+ points ahead on nothing short of a pipedream.   That takes gumption.   It was followed by another stalemate yesterday.   And then there was today, which can be called nothing less than a gutless performance.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of
