    I have it from reliable sources that Christmas has been scheduled for December 25, 2010. I thought everybody might like to know, so it doesn't sneak up on you... wouldn't want you to have to dip into your emergency fund for it or... GASP... break out the PLASTIC. We don't do that around here!

    Just an FYI... In the past week I have gotten 3 emails, supposedly from Bank of America but it turns out they are just phishing emails. BofA does NOT ask for any information via email. Be careful.
