Here's one we forgot - from Martha
UN OPERATIONAL RATE changes 12-29 for 12/31. Well do you think this will finally show?
Here's another one. 12-29 money moves in the Arab world.
If this happens on the 29th, add 2 days which is 12/31 - the day sanctions are REALLY released on the Iran rial.
You know what? it doesn't really matter since China and the rest of the world could care less about those "sanctions". Iran is pumping oil and shipping.
I just saw an article on Reuters that states it will take 24 years for oil to reach 100.00 per barrel. They can't give it away! I noticed that gasoline at our pumps is down to 1.83 and dropping. Will we see under a dollar? Wait and see.
Well, what's left? NOTHING!! Everything is signed, sealed and delivered.
The only question I have is if "We the people" are ready, not just for the bank, but are we ready to face the challenges ahead of us? You have to answer that for yourselves.

In 2016, the Federal Reserve will pay at least $12.2 billion to U.S. and foreign banks to keep the money created via its quantitative easing programs out of the economy.
If the Fed raises rates as expected next year, the amount nearly doubles to $23.1 billion.

GoldenStar: Helping a stranger in the grocery store
This afternoon while checking out at the grocery store, I over heard behind me in another check out line, a couple apologizing that their bank card not didn't work. When I finish my transaction I looked at them I see the husband counting out change from his pocket.
I looked at the groceries they had and they try to buy just fruit and a loaf of bread. The bill was only $8.00. So I reached in my purse and the only cash I had was a $5.00 bill so I gave to the cashier. The couple was so surprised and appreciated the gesture.
Right before I got into my car they said thank you so much and next time they see me they will pay it back. I told them no, just pay it forward. The couple had tears in their eyes.
They went on to tell me their nephew had a rear brain condition that is incurable and only have a month to live. Then this morning they received a call that their aunt is not doing well and has a few days left to live. So guess who has tears in their eyes.
I just wanted to share this experience. Even though it was a small amount it made a couples day. So no matter how big or small a gesture can be, we can make a difference in a person's life.
