In an apparent effort to recoup some of the losses suffered under enactment of new financial reform laws, some banks are manipulating the order in which they process bank account transactions to maximize the number of overdraft fees they can charge customers.  Even banks who use to "play fair" have now adopted the "dirty pool" policy. Here's one of the scenarios reported by irate bank customers: Say you have $500 in your checking account on a day that your bank receives four debits against your account: $5 latte$220 groceries$80 veterinarian$565 auto insurance Your total debits for the day total $870 against a balance of $500, overdrawing your account by $370. If the bank debits the three small purchases totaling $305 (easily covered by your $500 balance) before it processes the larger ...

One year, a husband decided to buy his mother-in-law a cemetery plot as a Christmas gift. The next year, he didn't buy her a gift.  When she asked him why, he replied, "Well, you still haven't used the gift I bought you last year!" And that's how the fight started.....  ================ My wife and I are watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire while we were in bed. I turned to her and said, 'Do you want to have sex?' 'No,' she answered. I then said, 'Is that your final answer?' She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying 'Yes.' So I said, 'Then I'd like to phone a friend.' And that's when the fight started...  ================ I took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some reason, took my order first..'I'll have the strip steak, medium rare, please.' The waiter asked, 'Aren...

The Pain of Payday Loans Payday loans are short-term cash loans with very high interest rates. They're usually used by people who have little access to credit because they may have few assets and aren't able to secure other options with lower interest rates. Payday lending operations charge high interest rates, and do nothing to encourage savings or asset accumulation. Legislation of payday lenders varies widely from state to state, with several states declaring them illegal. Wikipedia tells us that some impose strict usury limits instead, limiting the nominal annual percentage rate (APR) that any lender can charge and others have very few restrictions on payday lenders. The key to understanding the true cost of payday loans is the concept of compound interest. The example given in The ...

Open Burning Changes Effective May 2010 Open burning is the burning of any matter, where smoke and other emissions are released directly into the ambient air without passing through an adequate stack or flue. The Department of Environmental Protection (D.E.P.) and your local fire department limit open burning for public health and safety reasons. Open burning pollutes the air and can make it difficult for people with respiratory problems to breathe. Open burning can also create smoke and odor nuisances as well as health risks to nearby residents, particularly in densely populated areas. The D.E.P. encourages the use of recycling and alternate methods for disposal of brush and other types of solid waste: • Recycle paper products whenever possible - General Recycling Information • Yard de...

If you are looking for a distinctive restaurant east of the river, you must go to Zest!  Located in a restored farmhouse that was most recently Monet's Table, Zest is conveniently located near the junction of Routes 30 and 74 near the Vernon/Tolland line. I met a friend for lunch last Friday, a glorious spring-like day--and just a bit too early to see what the gardens and outdoor eating area would look like in bloom. The restaurant has two main rooms that are charmingly decorated, two fireplaces, lots of natural light, and an exquisite menu that tells you that there is a real chef in the kitchen.           After much deliberation, my friend and I both chose the Winter Salad: Sauteed pears and figs in port wine sauce served over mixed greens with sugared walnuts and chevre.  The flavors ...
