bolingbrook: What to pack in an emergency kit - 02/15/10 09:46 PM
A second wave of swine flu could hit this fall, and health experts recommend creating an emergency kit if the outbreak is severe. Of course, it's a good idea to keep a kit for any emergency.
What you need for emergencies:
Food
At least three days' worth of nonperishable, ready-to-eat foods, such as canned goods, dry cereal, and peanut butter.
Water
At least one gallon per person per day for three days. Bottled water is best because it can be stored indefinitely at room temperature, if it remains properly sealed and is kept dry and away from direct sunlight.
First-aid kit

bolingbrook: Somerfields/Fields of Bradford 9th Annual Halloween Parade - 10/30/08 01:08 AM
Hello All,
Though the weather didnt cooperate with the Parade as it was soooo windy and cold that I was not able to set up the carnival games but the children enjoyed collecting their candy and meeting with the Fire Department (too bad the Police Department didnt show up) the children also had a great time sitting in the Fire Truck and seeing all thier equipment.
See you all next year for the 4th Annual Easter Egg Hunt in either March or April and of course for next years Halloween Parade.

Topic 409 - Capital Gains and LossesAlmost everything you own and use for personal or investment purposes is a capital asset. Examples are your home, household furnishings, and stocks or bonds held in your personal account. When you sell a capital asset, the difference between the amount you sell it for and your basis, which is usually what you paid for it, is a capital gain or a capital loss. If you received the asset as a gift or inheritance, refer to Topic 703 for information about your basis. You have a capital gain if you sell the asset for more … (1 comments)

bolingbrook: Ignore the Headlines! Except this one. - 03/07/08 05:46 AM
Sure housings in a hole. But there's a potent case for buying now, weather it's real estate or stocks.
While today's market plays to your advantage as a buyer, with reduced housing costs and favorable interest rates, are you sitting by waiting?
When the market turns, today's bargains will be yesterday's missed opportunities.
While it is conceivable that home prices may drop further, it is likely that the decreased prices will be accompanied by increased financing costs due to rate cuts by the Fed. This means that any money saved on paying less for a house in a few months time will be … (0 comments)
