    What is the one "just gotta have item" that you get every month for yourself??? Not needed, just want.. For me, it's my Paula Dean candles.. I pay $8 for a jar and usually buy 2 every month and no I don't really need it, but I love them and save/reuse the jars. I use cheaper candles elsewhere...
  2. Military Families
    Why does military disability give extra for a non custodial child but will not send money to DHS for child support? I could understand not sending child support if the solder didn't get extra for that child but why give them more for a child they don't support financially?

    do you think that the "immediate" technology we have (the web, 24 hour news, internet news, facebook, twitter, cell phones, texting etc) drives (or appears to drive) the economy in such a rapid free fall. Think about it, but when the Great Depression (as well as later recessions) happened there...

    My apologies if this has been posted elsewhere. I have been following a little bit of the US news (been laid up with flu) and heard this morning that the bail-out for the car industry has been denied. Also it was said that this would have disastrous consequences for the US economy with a...

    I've read a lot of places on here where some of you say you shop at Aldis for great deals. I don't have one anywhere near me but last time I was at my parents I asked my mom if she had ever been to the one in the next town from them. She said she had and didn't care for it. She said a lot of the...
