Economy

It looks like the world's stock markets are in trouble. I am incredibly happy we cashed out our RRSPs (retirement savings plans) and sold our house. Apparently, we waited until the eleventh hour to sell that house. I'm just really glad we did.

I guess it is time to bring back the 1980s joke:  Dow Jones = DOW joNes

Wow! Your timing was really good! I hadn't come across that 1980s joke before, but I was still kinda young the last time the stock markets took a serious dive.
I was kinda young then too. And, I can't take credit for the joke. It came from Mad Magazine way back then.
*applauds you on your timing*
Splendid timing indeed!

I hope I'll have sold my house before it hits over here.
*crosses fingers*

Was your timing deliberate?
(When I got to know you you were already in the middle of selling the house. i never figured out what caused you to think that was a good action)
Yes, our timing was deliberate. In fact, we thought we might be a little late. We had planned to sell earlier in the year; but a bunch of circumstances conspired against us. Hubby pays a lot of attention to the economy, demographics and trends. I read some of the same stuff he does; but rely a lot on his interpretations because he has been right pretty much all the time. Once in a while he'll get the timing off just a bit; but I don't recall him being completely wrong. Ever! It is kinda scary; but at least we are prepared.

Good luck with selling your house before the crash hits over there. Sell quickly.
