    It’s sad when 3% is the highest rate one could find. I believe the real inflation is higher then that number. And this means that people’s savings are diminishing. Not good.

    Just opened an account at SFGI Direct. 1.41% no balance limit….very efficient. Anyone else have an account there. This is one of five high yield savings accounts I have, and right now the best.
