Christmas trees

December 25th, 2011

Last night Santa came and when we woke up this morning the tree was packed with presents. The kids had a field day opening their gifts and there is wrapping paper everywhere. I think everyone got the gifts they wanted and all are happy.

I am looking forward to the Christmas meal that I know is coming. We are having turkey as usual and I can never get enough. We also have all the trimmings that go along with turkey and I am sure I will be full of food soon. I hope that all have had as good a Christmas as we did and have a happy new year.

One dollar woes

December 13th, 2011

The U.S. government has been producing one-dollar coins that are made from metal over the last several dozen years. The problem is that Americans don’t want them. Numerous studies show that Americans prefer the old paper dollar. The coins are just not catching on. This is perplexing to some people.

Many experts agree that the dollar coins made of metal would save the taxpayers millions of dollars. The only problem is that taxpayers simply reuse to use the coins. Since no-one is using the coins, legislators have decided to eliminate the coins altogether. I think this is a good move as I have no interest in carrying around metal coins that pass for dollar bills.

Be blessed with more

Well, it is that time of year again .Leaves are changing and temperatures are falling. People are beginning to get that holiday bug. Thinking about the family gatherings and turkey dinners with the ones they love.
It is this time of year when people start to think about the loved ones lost, and the loved ones they still have with them. To everyone out there, all around the world have a safe and happy holiday, and may you be blessed with many more.

Shopping

November 5th, 2011

Since Halloween is over and done with, I have been going to the stores and finding some bargains. Many stores are having after Halloween sales and prices are low. I have had a good time checking them out. I love to save money and this is a great time to do it.

I love to shop and there are many coupons in the local paper. I plan to take advantage of them all. Christmas will be coming on soon and so I think it is better to stock out on some of the items we need now rather than later.

Economy still stalled

October 21st, 2011

The nation’s economy is still stalled. This news comes out ofWashingtonwhere many are worried that this will lead to another recession. Unemployment remains at just over 9% and many other factors are making investors nervous. However, there may be some good news coming.

The Christmas season is coming on and there should be some opportunities for at least some temporary jobs. Any job is a good job nowadays and a little extra income never hurts. I think things will start getting better soon.
