yesterday, today, and tomorrow

March 20th, 2009 at 08:35 pm

Thursday

Spending log - $2 coffee

Friday
Saving log - $0 tip box
Spending log - $20 haircut

Yesterday I received my stock proxy vote for KO. Every year some shareholder puts in a motion to control executive compensation. With the furor over AIG, I wonder how many more shareholders will vote for it? I know I voted for it, with more than a bit of glee.

Yesterday at our all staff, the CEO noted that our health insurance had to be maintained as a top priority, while our 403B was competitive, and therefore strengthening it was not a priority. Fair enough. I wonder how that bodes for the match.

Today I got my haircut (once every three months), and noticed that credit unions aren't safe either - a couple of those got taken over also.

Tomorrow morning I'll go in and file/pay my taxes (ugh - 2008, revised 2007, and probably the first quarter of 2009). But tomorrow night, I'll be ghost hunting at the job. Tee hee.

    Wow I haven't heard anything about credit unions

    I have to chime in on credit unions...there are many that are very healthy inspite of the current economic crisis. Many or our legistators are grateful that CUS exist, because they are the beacons right now. Obviously everyone needs to do their homework on who they are putting their nest eggs with, because there is no guarantee on stability...but CUs have not taken TARP money and need their communities to keep them strong. (they are here for you, after all) Ok, off the soap box. PLEASE let us know how that ghost hunting goes!!!

    Yeah - well clearly some will have issues. I am happy to say our CU did not do any subprime lending and is doing very well. Phew. But certainly can't say the same about all of them...

    thrifty - the CUs that got taken over were corporate CUs, so they didn't have individual depositor accounts - however they fund CUs. CUs are safer than banks, CU money is more likely to stay in the local community, CU money is also insured, by, I believe the NCUA, but as always, cavaet emptor.
