Good morning,

Hope all the ailing gerbils are healing up.

Gas prices out here in SoCal continue to drop--down to about $3.30 a gallon. It’s a nice surprise being able to fill up the truck for less than $50. Food prices though seem to be climbing.

SpaceX has a terrible reputation out here as an employer. Long hours.

Mid-week salutations from soon-to-be-stormy Happy Larryville, GN!

Hai, Sven! I’ve seen gas here as low as $2.86 this week; I’ll be curious to see where prices go next Wednesday. (Cynicism? You’re soaking in it.)

Food prices have been very obviously rising for the past couple of years ’round here.

I’ve been very glad to see the successes of various private sector space operations and hope to see a metric carp-tonne more for a whole passel of reasons which go beyond my having been such a “space-happy” kid (and old bastid).

Read last night that the Israeli media’s been trying to come up with a Hebrew equivalent of “chickenshit” which properly captures the, um, nuances of that term. (My first approximation of a Yiddish equivalent would be “Barackscheiß”…but then, I’m known for cheap shots.)

Happy Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning Sven and Fatwa!

Yep, gas prices have been going down (but I doubt they’ll drop below $3/gal out here) and food prices have been going up. Beef, especially has seen a huge increase and I noticed yesterday that pork is following suit. 18 months ago I could get a pound of 80/20 ground beef at TJ’s for $2.49, now it’s $4.19. Bacon is now $7-$8/lb.
