Simply The Worst Timing

I hate moving just as much as the next guy, but what I despise the most is having to move during a critical or turbulent time in the market. Worse yet, the older you get the more crap you end up accumulating, 99% of which you probably don’t even need.

It’s Gonna Be A Cold Winter

With both Nord Stream 1 and 2 blown to smithereens Europe is frantically preparing for a winter without enough food or heat and the real prospect of a full scale economic depression.

After nine months at our current location in the Spanish Pyrenees it is moving time again. The house we had rented was sold in spring, but lucky for us (and not so much for the owner) we had already extended our short term contract until the end of September, giving us more time to find a place we liked.

Happy Merge Day!

I Am Not Amused

Summer is finally (almost) over and I’m proud to say that I spent the better part of it in hyper productivity mode, putting the finishing touches on a new crypto swing trading system I started putting together back in April. We’ll get to all that in a moment but first I’d like to set the stage and prepare you all for what’s to come in the near and more distant future plus how it will most likely affect every single one among us.
