  1. Thanks for the link Money Reasons! I also chose your favorite post (financial crossroads) for my round up this week. We think so alike…

    Enjoy Hilton Head. It is hot as heck up north too!

  2. @Everyday Tips
    Yes, we do think alike… 🙂 We must have a common ancestry somewhere way back when.

    Actually, it seems like I always find something at your or Crystal’s site that makes me go hmmmm, that’s in my lineup! The times I don’t are usually the times I’m rushed because it’s too late.
