Rebecca – You said it. ;-)

Cynthia Blue – Made me giggle, too!

Mrs Pop – Haha! Too true.

katelin – I thought it was great, too. It’s funny in both a ‘haha’ way and sad sorta way.

The stimulus package is complete crap. It’s like giving an advance on our own money that we are already paying to the government. Hopefully our government will wake up and just spend less money instead of continuing to raise our taxes and pretend to give us a break.
