My Back!

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

You don’t realize how much you use your back until you hurt it. Yesterday I was playing around with my daughter and somehow, some way, I pulled something in my lower back. It didn’t hurt that much at first but this morning in the shower, I moved the wrong way and REALLY hurt it. Now […]

A Bit of a Vacation This Week

Friday, May 25th, 2007

I haven’t had time to blog this week. This is the last week of school and the kids have had a lot of programs, field trips, and picnics at school this week. My wife has been off most of the week. All this means that my blogging time has been very limited. I have a […]

Jonathan Clements on Mortgages

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

That’s just the impression I got from reading the article. In fact, the cover of this particular issue of Fortune has a […]

I’m Not the Only One Who Thinks Robert Kiyosaki is a Joke!

Monday, May 21st, 2007

There’s a pattern here, folks. Robert Kiyosaki is proving over and over again that he’s not worthy of writing for Yahoo! Finance. Not too long ago, I profiled one of his silly articles in a post titled Let’s Read Some of Robert Kiyosaki’s Drivel. This time it’s Samerwriter’s turn. Check out Kiyosaki – What a […]

More on the Price of Gas

Monday, May 21st, 2007

Here’s an interesting comment from last week’s post How Much Does it Cost to Drive ONE Mile? Kevin says: The emotion of Gas pricing is funny. Lets compare it to other liquids. $1.50 plus deposit for one liter of soda. Or a $1.25 for 16oz. of you buy out of a vending machine. Thats roughly […]
