I met a lady today who was a retired teacher from the Detroit Public School district. She was talking about her bills and how she had to stay ahead of them because as a retiree her money was limited. That's understandable, once you retire, you become a little more frugal with money considering that... Sign in to see full entry.


The country is in an obvious recession. Jobs are hard to come by and even the ones that are available are not guaranteed. Such is the case with the Big 3. The automakers are financially strapped, due in part to the ridiculously high gas rates that had Americans traveling less as well as purchasing... Sign in to see full entry.

FLIPSIDE - Thanksgiving

You know, today is a day to be thankful. In today's world economic issues, terrorism issues, education issues and any other issues you can come up with, may interfere with your ability to be thankful at all.

Father’s Day has come and gone this past weekend with not much fanfare at all.

Deja Vu

I was watching that Denzel Washington movie, Déjà Vu today and of course like any other writer, it made me think about some things.
