It has been the most volatile year that I can remember. The first eight months of the year were all about rising commodity prices. People were scrambling for stable supply in the face of rapidly rising prices. Everyone was talking about the price of oil and gas. It seemed as if it would never end. Then....the crash came.

Prices started falling off the cliff. Suddenly there was supply everywhere. Our leaders were telling us about the end of the world as we know it. Banks were failing, people were losing their homes & jobs and there is no end to the corporate bailouts.

What to do now? Give thanks. As bad as things might seem at times, we still have the highest standard of living in the world. If you have a roof over your head and food to eat on Thanksgiving then you are better off than most of the people on the planet....and if no one is trying to kill you then you are better off than 80% of the people; as many people around the world go to sleep each night in fear.

Last but not least, if you and your family are in good health then you really have a lot to be grateful for.

So, take a break from the stress and say thanks.
