with all the yakking about fundamentals on the board i feel out of place, so i thought i'd contribute a little info myself..................... TRENDS -- THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS The yearly Christmas Price Index, calculated by PNC Wealth Management in Pittsburgh, reflects the current costs of the gifts given by the True Love to the singer of the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas." According to the 22nd annual survey, the true cost (the cumulative cost of all the gifts with the repetitions listed in the song) is $75,122 for all 364 items, up from $72,608 in 2005. This is a 3.5 percent increase. The partridge's home saw the greatest increase of all the items in the index, as pear tree prices increased 44 percent from last year. Wages for skilled workers, including the song's dancers and musicians, have also increased, but Maids-a-Milking, who are paid the minimum wage, were the only service providers not to see an increase this year. it's an udder shame about those maids' wages. :P it's early, but Merry Christmas to all!

Outspeaks the Squire, "Give room, I pray,
And hie the terriers in;
The warriors of the fight are they,
And every fight they win".
