Reading the Blogosphere in the Gloom



Tax refund money from 2007 waiting to be claimed, but time is running out – Don’t Mess with Taxes

If you’re reading my blog, I trust you don’t need Kay’s reminder to pick up your tax refund from three years ago, right?

Gasoline Costs Putting a Crimp on Life – Funny About Money

Funny’s on a $100/month gasoline budget. My parents are spending about that much on average, and our prices in the Bay Area are rising just as rapidly as Funny’s.  Are you experiencing similiar gas pains? (Heh.) 

The bite clearly did not cause a fatal wound. Shame. – The Namby-Pamby

Just too funny. As long as you don’t realize that these are people around us….

SEP IRA Funded! – Well-Heeled Blog

Well Heeled has figured her maximum contributions from the 2010 freelance income to an SEP IRA. Well done!

Roasted Chicken with Dijon Mustard – Smitten Kitchen

We made this recipe late last night and I forgot the heavy cream. It was still fantastic.

Jambalaya – Our Best Bites

This recipe is next up on deck. We’re eating well this weekend.

My Credit Card Got Hacked – Surviving and Thriving

What a massive pain.  Donna has to deal with credit card fraud while traveling in the UK.

Reading the NYTimes on a Rainy Day

Talk Doesn’t Pay, So Psychiatry Turns to Drug Therapy

Yet another sad way that health care buckles under financial pressures. I wouldn’t presume to say that psychiatrists provide better talk therapy than psychologists but if someone is prescribing drugs to treat a medical condition that is related to stress and mental issues, I would much prefer that the talk therapy was provided by the same health care provider. Continuity of care is important.

Death Row Organ Donations

Christian Longo writes an Op-Ed piece in defense of his desire to donate his organs after his execution.  His petition was denied without elaboration. I could understand there have to be concerns about the morality of accepting donations from prisoners on several points, as well as viability concerns but I would still be interested to know more of what went into the decision to deny the claim.

Bahia Bustamante, Argentine’s answer to the Galapagos

This sounds like the ideal honeymooning destination to me – penguins, petrified forests, and majestic seascapes as far as the eye can see.  210,000 acres of peace and nature, and 3 meals a day.

    @stackingpennies: That made me laugh.

    Doesn’t it sound like the most fantastic??

    @Donna: You’re welcome! I hope the nonsense stops there …

    @Funny: You’re welcome! To be honest, I always feel guilty when our weather systems move your way, like we’re doing it to you. 🙂
