I read yet another article today about homeowners wanting to just walk away from their homes and their mortgages... even if they had the money to continue making the payments.  They just want to get away from the negative equity.  The story said that when the value of the home drops below 75% of ...

So, it's been months since I've blogged.  Now I can give you all the standard excuses - not enough time, couldn't think of anything to write about, etc.  But the true reason is that I have been suffering from a serious case of self doubt.  Now I know those of you who know me are probably saying "...

Why is "bad" news so popular?  And are you guilty of perpetuating it? I was watching the news this morning and there was a short sound bite about how gas prices are going up again.  Regular is now up to $1.48/gal.  GASP!!  Horrors!  According to the reporter, who was trying to sound properly conc...

I have a challenge for you.  Every New Year people make "resolutions".  And every year, most people fail to keep their resolutions.  Admittedly the top few resolutions are very difficult to keep - lose weight, stop smoking, get out of debt.  But what makes it so difficult to achieve these lofty g...

I had forgotten the meaning of Christmas.  I don't mean the religious version or the commercial version, but the true spirit of the holidays.  As I rushed through my days trying to accomplish everything on my "to do" list, I get caught up in the hectic pace and worrying about all the things I did...
