I don't think a sign would work.

Sometimes it takes more than a sign.

A state senator in Arizona (Sylvia Allen R-Snowflake) believes that America needs a moral rebirth (so that things could be more like the fifties, when everything was great) and suggested a bill that would [more]

Re: What has happened to LBYM popularity?

Bookgrrl stopped posting years ago because people gave her a hard time about everything.

Actually, bookgrrl stopped posting because one of her posts was pulled. I emailed her when she disappeared, and that's what she told [more]

Re: Dilemma

I think my first question would be, whose money are they using? During the Bush years the government allowed religious groups to apply for funds to use for social works of various kinds, with the proviso that they could not mention religion while [more]

Hiding things from the family

One of my nieces has written a book with her husband. It arrived today, and I already finished it.

It's a story of addiction and codependency. It's written in alternating voices, as he tells his story, and she tells hers.

Re: The Undebtors

My husband and I were discussing this the other day. Our kids are 18 and have checking accounts but have never written a single check. We wondered if, in their lifetime, they ever would write a check! It's all debit card transactions for [more]

A sign!

This one is almost beyond belief.

A Domino's delivery guy was making a delivery, and someone hopped in his car and stole it. The police found it an hour later. It was easily spotted because the thief left the Domino's logo on the [more]

Re: Dilemma

It's a public school, and I am paying for it. If I want her to have bible lessons, I'll give them myself or take her to church. NOT school.

Re: Other People's Money...

They said that he is making payments on three cars. I can't even imagine that.

Years and years ago (2006 to be exact) over on the Credit Card board we had someone making three car payments a month. Now, this person had a huge income. [more]

I also noticed that he was thinking of converting his 401(k) to a Roth IRA in order to avoid the mandatory withdrawal, but apparently didn't realize the tax hole he would have fallen into. I wonder if he has made other poorly-planned financial moves [more]
