About Me

I got the nickname Ron Obvious because -- in addition to being a huge Python fan -- my name really is Ron and I used to start sentences with \"Obviously\" a lot. Obviously, that\'s no longer a problem.

I Dare You To Tell Me The Economy Is "Booming" After Reading This List Of 19 Facts...

I was forwarded this article, but I don't recognise or know anything about this blog so I don't know how credible it is. It's true that I find it difficult to square stories about the economic boom times we're supposedly living in with the reality of the world around me.

#2 The number of mortgage applications has fallen for four weeks in a row.

#3 We just witnessed the largest crash in luxury home sales in about 9 years.
