Interest rates climb, oil recovers, and the American economy itshays the bed.

If the sea was vodka, and I was a duck.
I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.

I am thinking of not going on a planned vacation in May with the current exchange, try to stay somewhere in Canada and maybe drive out to the coast.

I also don't plan on doing anything other than maintenance to either car for at least this year, but I got what I wanted already.
I don't name things I know I'm going to sell eventually. Hence why I'd never name any kids I had.

Yeah. We have to go to Lake Placid for a wedding in june and were thinking of hitting up NYC afterward for a few days. We've both been, but not in a few years. New York is an expensive place regardless, but the dollar makes it even more so...

Yep the price of our coin sucks.  I was going to order up a few parts for the truck but decided I don't want them that bad to pay an extra 25% over the American pricing. Hopefully things will happen by the summer.

What is going to happen by the end of the summer is the Americans will raise they interest rates raising the value of their currency while we simultaneously lower our interest rates again lowering our own currency.  If things stay on that path the dollar will settle into the low 70's or high 60's.  This is what Stephen Poloz ultimately wants anyway.
