I like pretty things

Speaking of panic: It is officially Recession time.;_ylt=AlLkYpJW_ooAoDhQgKH_9ky7YWsA

"The U.S. has finally slid into recession, according to the majority of economists in the latest Wall Street Journal economic-forecasting survey, a view that was reinforced by new data showing a sharp drop in retail sales last month"

- Retail sales are down
- High gasoline prices and credit crunch
- Payrolls are either growing slowly or shrinking
- Expecting unemployment rate rising

I know on my own part, I've reduced spending somewhat. I'm noticing food prices are increasing.
I'm watching my credit card debt too.
