A good article with frugal tips for eating out. We eat out (or get take-out) about 2-3 times a week, but when we do, we always just drink water for free since to me it is a waste of money buying sodas or ice tea. Plus, I usually never order an appetizer. Of course when we take family or friends out they can order anything they want, and I don't mind paying for it to share in their company!
The S&P ended the week about where it started after falling then rising as it bounced off the 200 SMA (see box in chart below). So far the 200 SMA (arrow at brown line) is holding as support. We are in a downward channel with lower lows and lower highs, so we'll have to see if we can move out of the top of it or go down to test the bottom trend line. My investment portfolio is -5.80% below its high, and I'm still in cash (Prime Money Market) with my bond fund allocation as their prices continue to drop.
“There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error and experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately work.”
A good article stating 50 ways that the world has gotten better.

“You’ll never see all the awesome things ahead of you, if you keep looking at all the bad things behind you. Sometimes you just have to turn around, give a little smile, throw the match and burn that bridge. Live, learn and don’t look back.”
