Set a Date

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

Setting an achievement date for reaching your goals is important. This allows you to map out a series of short-term goals (and dates) that serve as milestones on your journey toward achieving the larger long-term goals. Let’s look closer at the example of losing 30 pounds by the end of May. We could break this down into an initial short-term goal of losing six pounds by the end of January. (more…)

What can you Expect to See Post 2

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

This season, there seems to be even more studmuffins for the women to drool over. And I think this is a great thing, because the way I see it, if I’m with a babeness and she’s all flushed and excited, I really don’t care who she’s flushed and excited about as long as she’s with me because this’ll probably lead to me getting some action. It’s all good. That’s what I think. It is all good. (more…)

What might you expect to see with the new Survivor Africa? I discuss the babeness factor, the terrain, the wild animals, and much, much more! It’s all good.

Baseball was big when I was a kid. I played at Antonia Khoury League, which was a very large cornfield in Missouri converted into many ball diamonds. I remember all-day tournaments in the heat of the sun, no trees to provide shade – nothing but the sound of bats hitting balls, people cheering, and plumes of dust as the base runner slid into second. For those on the field, a welcome cool gust of air also meant breathing in the dirt and digging the dust out of their eyes. (more…)

Grammy’s Golden Girls

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Women rocked — and ruled — at the 41st annual Grammy awards. Some of its most riveting live performances came from a kimono-clad Madonna, who opened the show, a very buff Sheryl Crow, a relaxed Alanis Morissette, a barely-covered Shania Twain and Lauryn Hill, who took home five awards for her eponymous solo album, including best album and best new artist. Other winners: Madonna claimed three of the mini-gramophone trophies for “Ray of Light” (her first-ever musical wins), the adorable Dixie Chicks, Celine Dion, Brandy and Monica. (more…)

Making Drive Time Work for You

Saturday, July 2nd, 2011

As many suburban women do, I spend a lot of time in my car, running errands and dropping kids off and picking them up. That could become a lot of dead time with no net reward. But I’ve got some strategies that really make it time you can use.

Getting Rid of Complete Junkers

Say that the car is undrivable, and so beat up that you can’t even sell it. You call the charities, and they won’t touch it with a ten foot pole. The choices left: (more…)

This has been a big enough problem that most states now have exemptions for certain situations. With smog tests, many states now say that “The car must pass the emissions test, or the owner must spend a minimum of $200.00 in an attempt to bring it into compliance.” (more…)

Lowball Sale Prices. Many people will ask you to write a lower price than they actually paid you on the title and bill of sale, to save on sales tax at DMV. Ethical? Unethical? That depends on your point of view about government. However, we will definitely say that a buyer who wants you to write $4,000 on the bill of sale and then pay you with a check for $5,000, is completely loony. They’re asking you to aid in tax fraud – and then deposit a check that proves it! If they’re paying cash, your call. (more…)

We go for a test drive. If they’re from a non-industrial country, they find 24 things wrong. They will make the car creak, rattle, and groan like it never did before. They find a steep hill, turn on the air conditioning, and show how the car has no power. They say the compression is bad. They say it will cost $1,000 to fix these things. Because of these problems no one but them will buy the car. But they will pay you $1,000. You say: “No, thank you.” They discuss it among themselves. (more…)

Selling Your Used Car Post 4

If you’re selling your car for less than $4,000, life will be more interesting. You’ll get more phone calls. You’ll meet kids buying their first car; people who don’t have the credit to get financing at a dealer; eccentrics; cheapskates; people who like to work on cars; representatives from around the world — and with luck, grownups who just want a cheap car that will last a year or two.
