    We have a trip planned to Florida soon. My Mister is extremely anxious and fearful of flying. In his words, "I HATE FLYING." He is now contemplating not going?!?! :( To be fair, I told him I looked at Amtrak and it's the same price if we don't get sleeping rooms but it's a 2-day trip, 44...
  2. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I have been watching this very closely (in the event that I need to return to the US within the next few years) and this article caught my eye. After a discussion with a friend of mine about how sour the economy has been for the last few years, I saw this: American Sauce: Maybe the economy’s...

    I was just reading a story on CNN about how a woman did not want to find out what she was having and her doctor's office receptionist blurted it out. This is not the first time I have heard this, but it totally upsets me to even think of not wanting to find out and some dummy telling you in...
  4. Question and Answer
    While there are obviously some very real problems in the economy, a lot of the market instability really is the old "fear itself" issue. And as companies get scared they lay off, and laid off people spend less money, and more businesses get more scared..etc. etc. No one wants this. But what...
  5. Preparedness and Survival
    Just a thought, I realize that times are harder than what we are used to. I get it. I too, am not immune to the economic spiraling of our times, but I think that the media thrives off of bad news and they help put more fear into the people than is necessary and sometimes it gets me angry that...

    I have mentioned before that my dh's work is feast or famine. Things have been good, steady, not really any extra. But this time of yr things always start to slow down. I noticed it's happening already, a little earlier then normal. He only got 30 hrs last week and didn't go in until 10am...

    It's a new show on NBC for the summer that tells a new scary story each week. It's okay...not great. I'm always looking for a good, scary show. I love Ghost Whisperer, even though it isn't really scary, so I figured this might be a nice substitute for the summer. This weeks episode just...
  8. Financial hardship
    Seems like the right forum for this... Just talked to my wife who is traveling for business today and the guys she is driving with spent 3 hours talking about the economy and how her company will be laying people off. Now my wife is upset and extremely worried about her job and I'm a little...

    So sad. I'm sure that none of us suffer from this (and if any of us do, the rest of us can certainly be shoulders for you to lean on) but the pictures are fascinating to look at, and certainly can be inspirational to get you cleaning and decluttering FAST. http://www.disposophobia.com/ :yikes:
  14. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    We've done this before, however we have so many new members it would be interesting to see what they fear. Mine has got to be being a burden to my kids as I grow older. There are such long waiting lists for nursing homes now that by the time we need them, I'm wondering how long the list will...

Petting your whining dog in an attempt to comfort may in fact be the wrong thing to do. In essence, you are reinforcing the whining behavior during the...

    Many of you know that about 3 years ago we left a spiritually abusive church that hurt many, many people. We also have been dealing with another pastor and his family for many years now that are dishonest and have caused many problems for our family and health problems for me. We also have a...
