Good afternoon!

I like things, and places.

1. Peanut butter cookies

Mmmmm. I made some the other day… didn’t have enough peanut butter, so I made up the difference with almond butter. Didn’t have any eggs so I used a little extra butter and a dash of cream. SO. GOOD.

2. Naf Naf Grill

I get the chicken shwarma bowl with everything on it, hot sauce on the side because it’s seriously spicy. I’ve heard the falafel is really good from my vegetarian friends. It’s fast, healthy-ish, and not too expensive. Yes!

3. Blackfish

I don’t even have words for the level of sadness I feel after watching this movie and thinking about it.

by John Allison, former CEO of BB&T Bank and current president of the Cato Institute.

FreeMarketCureBook

 

A pretty easy-read (in comparison to other books about economics) that explains what caused the financial crisis of 2008. BB&T survived the market crash without any losses.

I recommend the read. I’m about halfway through.

 

Good day to you!
