Bracket Buster

Well, no baby yet but Kendall did make it to Spring Break. She can now relax and wait, hopefully not too long though. We have watched a lot of basketball in the past few days. Indiana is out, they lost to UCLA. For a while I didn't know if they were going to get to 30 points, what an ugly game. I guess now I will go for Butler, whoever is planing Kansas, and my pick to win it all Texas A&M. I was a little disappointed with Xavier, and how stupid they were not to foul at the end of the game and then let Ohio St. hit a 3-pointer to tie it. It was a great day for basketball yesterday.

On another topic we were able to pay off my student loans this month. Its been a long time coming and what a relief it is. We were able to pay it off a little sooner than we expected because on our 2005 tax return I made a mistake. I caught the mistake while doing this years taxes. I transferred a wrong number off a W-2 and it was off by $1,000. We just got that money back plus a little bit from this year and this helped us pay off my loan. It couldn't come at a better time with the baby coming and they bills it will bring.

Happy March Madness to everyone and enjoy the games and hopefully we will bring news soon.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin to get real income.
It gets down to select a correct companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
