Go Vote!


I don’t usually take a very political stance on my blog, because no one would listen anyway.  Everyone makes up their own minds based on various media outlets, personal beliefs, facts, and fiction.  I just wanted to drop a quick note to remind everyone that today is Election Day, and that they should go vote!

Polling places are open from 6AM to 9PM in many areas.  Keep in mind that you may experience a wait.  You’ll need your voter registration card, as well as photo ID.  Get out and do your part!

Just a little note to everyone.  I’m in the process of moving, so updates will be slow during the next week or so.  I’m waiting for Verizon to come out and install FiOS service, so until then I am bouncing from access point to access point.  I’ll be back soon enough!

Losing A Wallet (or Purse!)


If you follow my Twitter at all, you will have noticed that I lost my wallet yesterday.  I didn’t discover this loss until today, when I went to work and realized it wasn’t in the pocket it belonged in.  After getting angry with myself for misplacing it (which I’m about 90% certain I did at this point), and tearing the house apart looking for it (multiple times), I realized that this isn’t the end of the world, and that everything in there can be replaced.  Take the time to read this article and prepare youself for the inevitable loss of your wallet or purse!

Good Luck, Pat!


On October 9, my room mate and business associate Patrick Doty entered the United States Army to serve his country and grow personally.  I understand that everyone has their position on the war, and I really don’t want to get into a political debate on my own blog.  This post is just to say good luck to Patrick as he goes through basic training and Advanced Infantry Training.

The $700 Billion Bailout


This is a topic that I’ve been struggling to try and write about, because it is simply over my head.  Actually, it’s probably over many people’s heads.  However, I FINALLY found an article over at Blueprint for Financial Prosperity that will help explain everything.  You can take a look at that article [here].  In addition, they are keeping the article up to date as things progress.

One item that I did note is that the bill has now passed.  Included in the bill was an increase of the FDIC’s deposit insurance from $100,000 to $250,000, which I had mentioned the proposal for in a previous article.
