Hat tip to Mish at Global Economics for pointing to “Geography Of A Recession.” It’s an interactive chart, which displays the changes in unemployment rates by month and county from January 2007 to September 2009. Fascinating and depressing at the same time…
Thanksgiving in our family will be on the quiet side this year, which I don’t mind at all. I’ll get in a couple hours of work early in the morning and, since I could not get a tennis game set up, will go through my alternative exercise routine.
Since the weather forecast in Southern California calls for a balmy day in the mid 70s, my wife and I will head for the beach for a lunch picnic and a lot of reading. With our 13-year old son joining us (if he can interrupt his surfing), it promises to be a nice relaxing day.
We will have turkey dinner in the early evening at a restaurant overlooking the ocean at the Huntington Beach pier to close out a day of stress free R&R.;
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
