Smart Dogs

There are some products and programs that go way beyond good economic choices. The Ornish Diet program and vegetarian Smart Dogs have improved my life more than anything in a while. I was on the phone with my youngest college age son yesterday, and told him about the Ornish program. I said, Bill Clinton and […]

Time Will Tell

Is there ever a Better Economic Choice? Maybe the real thing is don’t spend a dime on anything but the essentials. Forget trying to look cool, forget trying to look successful, forget trying to comfort yourself with stuff. In my experience it just doesn’t work. Have I really learned my economic reality lesson or will […]

Please Fix It

Yesterday, there was a news story about the Bryan Whitfield hospital in Demopolis, Alabama. The hospital has had to stop delivering babies after 50 years. They could not survive in the current medical environment. They story said that they could not keep enough labor and delivery nurses in order to keep their malpractice coverage. The […]

21% Interest

My favorite President was Jimmy Carter. He was elected when I was a student at Auburn and we were all so excited. We had at least 100 students watching the presidential election and some of the kids drove over to Ga for the party after the election. I still like Jimmy. He is the only […]

Saving Money on Food

Just Go Buy A Card

A few years back my husband signed up for MSN American Greetings online. He canceled the service years ago and it renewed itself again this year. Last night he worked on it for a couple of hours and could not get into the account. He called this morning and finally spoke to a customer service […]

Allergens

It is never a good economic choice to buy some food item that has an undeclared allergen. I get FDA alerts when products have been recalled and I am always amazed at how many things can go wrong with production. We have been buying Kettle baked Sea Salt potato chips over the past few years […]

Pepperidge Farms

By March the first, I plan to launch my new online business. My plan is to provide care packages to senior adults in rest-homes or at home. The purpose of the care package is to help seniors maintain their weight. When people get to be over 85 if they drop 10% of their body weight […]

It is Spring is Tuscaloosa

Today, my husband and I drove over to Tuscaloosa to take our son some valentine junk food. As we drove along you could still see the evidence of of our snow disasters of the last couple of weeks. A bumper here a tail light there. But it was a beautiful day and once we got […]

Never Assume

Do people use prejudice to sell their wares, to get a better deal, to isolate a competitor? Sure they do! But as people try to sort individuals into certain categories in order to profit, it creates a false society. According to the information I have heard on television, over the past year I am suppose […]
