Fast Fix For The Economy

Posted by idawrites on April 24, 2009 in Discussions, economy, Taxes |

I received this in my Inbox this morning.  It’s brought up some interesting discussions elsewhere. I’d love to hear your thoughts: This is from an article in the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper on Sunday. The Business Section asked readers for ideas on “How Would You Fix the Economy?” I think this guy nailed it! Dear […]


We Didn’t Win The Lottery

Posted by idawrites on December 13, 2008 in Discussions, Money, Windfalls |

Yes, I know.. this isn’t much of a surprise. The MegaMillions jackpot was estimated at $207 Million this week. Whenever the jackpot goes above $100 Million, we consider buying a ticket.

I tried to have a budget meeting with Mark last night. This did not end well. Thus begins my campaign to learn to effectively communicate with Mark about the budget. In his eyes, we’re doing all we can with the planning and cutting expenses. He says he agrees with my perspective, thus there is nothing […]
