Hopes for 2010

Can it really be 2010 already? Seems like only a week ago that we welcomed in 1965.

My hopes and wishes for this new year and decade are simple ones. I'm not asking for World Peace or to win the 100 million dollar lottery. Such things rest with God. And yes, even my few hopes are probably beyond my control but here they are anyway:
  • I hope my family, friends, and acquaintances -- everyone I know -- stays healthy and safe;
  • I hope the interest on my home loan goes as low as the interest on my savings account. Barring that miracle, I hope the interest on my savings account increases to that of my home loan. See, I'm flexible.
  • I hope the satellite and cable TV services allow us to cherry pick what channels we want and adjust their pricing accordingly. No more taking away one great channel we watch and replacing it with 15 or 20 junk channels we've never heard of. What good are 150 channels if we don't watch 125 of them? Let me keep all the good channels and cut my bill in half.
  • I hope the political games played and special favors granted behind closed doors in Washington DC become a millstone around the necks of those guilty of same.

For all of you reading this, I wish you a happy, healthy, safe, prosperous new year.

AMEN TO EVERYTHING!! I agree completely. (Can I steal your list??) Hope you have a wonderful 2010!

Definitely agree with your list!

I personally think they've lowered the interest rates so far so that no one will bother saving their money. I've often pondered the amounts I save, and realize how little I'm getting for them. Granted, I try to turn around and use it to pay down debt (because I might as well save on that higher interest than make almost nothing), which likely isn't what the government is hoping for. :-\

I would love to have cable services offered up as a buffet-style, where I get to pick 10 channels to watch for a set price, but just like cell phone services, they're in it to make you pay as much as possible. :-\

Hope 2010 is a good one for all of us!

Well, it’s amazing. The miracle has been done. Hat’s off. Well done, as we know that “hard work always pays off”, after a long struggle with sincere effort it’s done.
