As the "subprime slime" mortgage situation continues the S&P 500 index has slipped another 0.08% since my last update. My bottom line was still up a bit, although that number was buoyed by an additional 2007 SEP IRA contribution:

Other than the 5 year E-Loan CD @5.55% APY I opened three weeks ago, I haven't made any significant money moves over the past month. However, the rumblings of a
September 18th FOMC rate cut are making me strongly consider throwing some more cash into a 3 month E-Loan CD @5.55% APY before the FOMC meets next week.
