I guess Ben Bernanke is an everyday reader - thanks for the 50 basis point cut to the discount rate, Ben! Gained back 3.5% today on my portfolio.
Back to baseball... the Netanya Tigers lost today to the Bet Shemesh Blue Sox, sending Bet Shemesh to the championship game to face Modi'in. With our season now over, I find myself with three full days to spend with absolutely zero obligations here in Israel - a prospect that is both exciting and a bit challenging. I have been trying to save as much money here as possible, but having this much time to kill will certainly present me with plenty of money-spending opportunities. Hopefully my discipline will allow me to return home at least in the green for the summer.
