More Hours in a Day

I would like to find a way to somehow get more hours into a day. If you have found an acceptable solution that doesn’t involve vast amounts of speed or other illegal drugs and does not induce sleep deprivation, please contact me immediately. On a more serious note, you can probably guess I’m as busy […]

12 Ways of Life I’m Declaring Bankruptcy On

Landline Telephone: I’ve actually turned this one off in my life a long time ago. Right now I think we actually have landline service bundled with our cable and internet but we don’t have a single phone plugged in anywhere in the house. Why would I want to use a (gasp!) phone book to find […]

Tax Stimulus Rebate Schedule

Nickel over at fivecentnickel.com has posted the time lines which show favorable to those that have direct deposit. Here is when they will start sending […]

Tagged by the 4X4 Meme…

Birthday and Working

Today marks the day that I turn another year older. You can find me tonight in Driscoll, DJing for the annual St Patty’s Day party.

Gold Prices Through the Roof

Gold crossed 1,000 dollars an ounce today. That blows my mind. I remember just what seems like a few years ago that it was under $400 an ounce. I guess that just shows the sad shape our economy is in. By the way, how do you assign a value to gold, using something (money) which […]

Ever Have One of Those Weeks?

It’s only Wednesday and things just keep stacking up. I have every night until next Wednesday booked with something or another and then on the way back to work from lunch today, the tranny decided to go south in my Monte Carlo. Great, just when gas hits record highs, I’m back to driving my old […]

Finally some weather I can get used to…

Today it was in the 60s for the first time this year here. As you can imagine, it was pretty hard to stay in the office all day. And believe me, I wasn’t the only one that had a hard time today!

Americans Aren’t Saving Anymore

We just don’t save like we used to. After reading this article, it got me thinking, “Why don’t we save like we did twenty years ago?”. Well I think when you dig a little deeper, the answer is obvious. Back in the 1980s, it was very common to receive 8-10% return on savings in a […]

If anyone is planning a move…

I highly DON’T recommend it! My shoulder is still hurting from our move last Wednesday. It also seems that you can never get fully unpacked for a few months…
