I'm unplugging myself from the avalanche of crisis news

This morning was great - until I listened to the BBC's Business Daily.

It's not the BBC's fault - it's just the news they're bringing every day. Fear, anxiety and depression can be contagious sometimes, and in these unprecedented times doubly so.

So I'm unplugging. I'm going to stop gawping at the protracted car crash that is the financial world, and get on with what I need to do.

It's not like I'm being an ostrich - I'm certainly still open to critical analysis and historical comparisons, big picture stuff that helps me understand what this means long term. But as for the daily lurches up and down - I don't need to ride that roller coaster.

ay carumba!

Amen to that. It's like watching the ultimate soap opera.
