    I was reading the latest issue of Bacwoods Home and they have several articles on cheap eating. Their idea of cheap was $6.50 a plate and $200.00 per person! Thought about writing their editor and calling them a bunch of pansies but.......... I'll be nice. Thought you folks who've been doing...

    Ergh. SO very glad that's over. There will be cleanup for ages and we still don't have any power where we are, but hopefully soon. My office has power, so they forced us to come in to work, even though there's nothing to do yet, as the Port of Houston is still closed. I guess they don't...

    Private nurses for common folks You may think of private nurses as a luxury for the ultra-rich, like a butler or personal chauffeur. But hiring in-house medical care has become an increasingly viable option for regular folks too.

    I found a mini van advertised locally and decided to take a look at it. It was a '98 Dodge Caravan. It was in pretty good shape, needed about a $150 detail clean performed, but otherwise in good condition. The girl selling it wanted only $2,198 for it, she said that was the pay off on it. We...
