Wise debt management


I've heard my fair share of people say they are going to go debt free from now on. I at first thought that sounded good. But I have since changed my opinion of that, while too much debt is a bad thing, carrying a little debt is not. People with no payment history towards debt do not get as good interest rates as people who have proven they can wisely handle debt.

Since when did prom become such an expensive affair?
Why do teenagers need a limo to go to prom? The average American household spent $807 on prom this year? That is crazy, I think I spent maybe $200 to go to my prom 12 years ago.  Has inflation gotten that bad or has today's youth gotten an over inflated sense of entitlement?

Thank goodness I'm not the only one


I'm glad I'm not the only person who thinks that Ke$ha's music is bad. I've listened, and watched her on SNL. Not impressed. Then I started listening to the lyrics of her music that my 8 yr old step-daughter was singing. Dirty free for all?!?! WTH.

I have since banned that particular radio station from our house, but there really is no way that I can keep her from listening to this crap. I realize that I will have to sit down and talk with her about how this music represents a rather irresponsible "adult" lifestyle. And why "we" may like her music, this is NOT the right way to approach life.

Really looking forward to that talk.....
