And The Award Goes To.... - 02/23/09 08:38 AM
I didn't watch the awards show last evening. However, I did pause there for a few moments to see 2 awards given for best costume and best art design. The show seemed a bit boring and trivial to me, no offense to you if you are a die hard awards show fan. I believe that people should be free to create movies, and have entire evenings dedicated to awarding the participants for their achievements. I also believe that if an entertainer/actor earns millions of dollars in their pursuits, it is theirs to do as they please. I love to hear stories of (2 comments)

Do you feel confused about tax credits? Did it seem to you that every day of the week last week produced a different description of the facts? It's time to clear up the confusion!

The proposal would allow a tax credit of 10 percent of the value of new or existing residences, up to a $15,000 limit. (Current law provides for a $7,500 tax break for the purchase of new homes only) Of course (0 comments)
Motivational Monday- Priorities - 02/02/09 09:42 AM
This is my first day back after a wicked 'bout with the flu. It hit me suddenly and without warning. Once I finally relented to the fact that I was sick, the only thing I could think about was that TV commercial where the doctor tells the woman she has the flu and she's sorting through her day-planner looking for somewhere to schedule it. She finally replies to the doctor that she doesn't have any room in her schedule for the flu. Life is like that isn't it? You're going along all wrapped up in your day to day business and then, (3 comments)
