    I got my first check of 2011 today. $15.00 less in my check than the last check of 2010. I called my payroll and they said a new federal tax went into effect. I thought middle class taxes were not going to increase. I feel like I am getting hit from all directions. 3 kids in college and gas...

    Apparently his manager had a screaming fit and threw a chair across the room at the morning meeting. Two other people in the office have also given notice. Fortunately we have a fat EF and the job market here is looking up.

    A gripe I have with my daughters school system is that they send home fund raising stuff that requires them to turn money in within a few days. I usually throw this stuff away. My daughter joined karate after school. I had a week to come up with money for it. I don't mind paying for it cause my...

    They're going to let him go at the end of the month. At least they let him know, so we could prepare for it. I'm not worried about food, heck we have enough in the freezer to see us through 4 months easily with no meat purchases. But after having to get the car fixed in August AND September...

    saying they will be increasing the water rates by 43%. Crazy. It will start on the next bill. We get billed quarterly so the next bill will be in October. Gees, how are people gonna handle this with the price of everything else these days?
