Cutting Down on Spam Posts
Friday, March 13, 2009

We are working on some changes to cut down on spam posts.  We hope to have them in place this afternoon.

Thanks for your patience in dealing with this problem!

Update: We now have some new anti-spam controls in place.  Hopefully we see a lot less of those annoying technology posts.  We also are testing a spellchecker.  Click the "abc" image in the text editor and it opens up a spellcheck.  Be sure to let us know what you think of this features, especially if you have any problems with it.

Suze Orman: Tips to pay off credit cards
Friday, January 09, 2009

In this article, Suze Orman offers some sound advice about creating an emergency savings fund instead of using credit cards for emergency.  She has more great advice as well, it's worth a read.

"The best way to insulate yourself is to get out of credit card debt once and for all. If you pay off your balance, you don’t have to worry about the interest rate on your card. If you pay off your bal­ance, you are less likely to have your credit card limit reduced; and even if it is reduced, it will not have a negative impact on your FICO score.

If you pay off your credit card balance, you can focus on building an emergency savings fund. That’s especially important in 2009. The days of using your credit card as a de facto emergency fund are over. If you tap too much of your credit card line, it is likely you will see the line reduced, your interest rate rise, and, yes, potentially have your card closed down — and there goes your FICO score. Unpaid balances in 2009 will put you in the middle of a vicious cycle. You must get out of card debt now. It is the number one action to take in 2009."

Recycling Being Thrown Away
Wednesday, November 12, 2008

This is a pretty annoying story about Seattle area ferry workers throwing away all the recyclables instead of recycling them.

It's always a fear of mine that our hard work of sorting, cleaning and breaking down may be going into the trash.  This article present the worst case scenario...  ferry workers are dumping all the recycling right into the garbage to save time.  This is why it's important to stay involved and make sure people are doing what they are supposed to with our waste.
