Ok, here’s the rant that’s been brewing over the last couple of days….

I woke up to a nightmare that a polite but firm thief was in my house, taking whatever he wanted while we just sat back and didn’t call 9-11. Now that I’m awake, I find it’s absolutely true, only it’s not my house or my laptop that’s been broken into. Yes, as far as I Read More …

Gimme an M! Gimme an E! Gimme an H! What’s it spell? My opinion of the current presidential race. I know I need to go and read the stuff people are saying and writing about the front runners. Sooner or later I need to make a decision. (Primary is in just a few weeks. Better Read More …

Well, isn’t that nice???

Ok. I’m usually relatively paranoid about my financial stuff, because if I don’t watch it like a hawk, checks start to bounce.
