By now, everyone has heard of the Credit Reform Victory, and the Consumer's Union is celebrating this victory. The union states that..."We're celebrating, and so should you! After a nearly two-year battle, last week, President Obama signed into law credit card reform -- and it's all because of you! Your donations, emails, phone calls and personal stories convinced Congress to pass the most significant credit card reforms on the banks in nearly 30 years. We took on the big banks -- and won! Learn what the credit card reforms mean to your wallet, and give yourself a giant pat on the back. (2 comments)

After dinner tonight, my husband, Claude, takes Zeke, our chocolate lab, out to play a bit in the yard. I was in my office, logging onto Active Rain to read some posts, when Claude comes in and hands me a small branch that fell from one of our Dogwood trees. He proceeds to tell me about the legend of the dogwood tree, which I didn't know. So, curious me, decides to look this up in the Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (BTW, I use it all the time). Well, needless to say, Claude was right. Here is a statement from Wikipedia on the (4 comments)
An Auction to Remember - Greenbrier Episcopal School 10th Annual Auction - 05/17/09 08:59 PM
Greenbrier Episcopal School (GES) had its Tenth Annual Auction held at the West Virginia Osteopathic Medical School, Lewisburg, West Virginia. The theme for the night was "A Black Tie Affair".

The $8,000 first time homebuyers TAX CREDIT - HUD has saved the day. Well, okay, it saved it for a day. It's gone now, recinded, at least for now.

Tom Burris had noticed this yesterday and I just got off the phone this morning with the HUD office. For reasons unknown, this letter, ML 09-15, has been taken off the self. (0 comments)

My mother was dying, she had pancreatic cancer and died September 2, 1967. Se was a remarkable woman and mother. But, her (5 comments)
