Re: Another Yahoo Finance Article

Why is that Disney's fault??

I feel bad for the people. I really do. I don't know why Orlando doesn't have a homeless shelter, but the article is very accusatory toward Disney and the tourists who go to Orlando for vacation.

The problem with people like this is when something bad actually happens, they've got nowhere to go.

Re: Spring is here. Why doesn't my heart ...

Peppermint oil is a great deterrent. Put a few drops on a cotton ball and wipe it around window sills and door thresholds once a week. It smells good and won't hurt animals or kids. Be careful on wood floors though. It might hurt the finish. I don't [more]

Re: car buying

When I bought my new Accord, I was looking at used cars, but they really did want more for the used cars, and they were less willing to negotiate price.

My new Accord (last 2010 on a lot full of 2011's) was $3k less than the used 2007 [more]

Re: Signs of splitting up

I read a motivation quote once that read:

"It isn't a lack of romance that kills a marriage, it's a lack of friendship"

I think that's pretty accurate.

Mom and Brother update

Mom is doing very well. She is dressing better than I've seen her do in years, having her hair cut at a salon instead of cutting it herself. (Cost Cutters, but still, I've never known her to spend money on a haircut)
