Researching Charities



Resources of the Week --------------------------------------By Shirl Kennedy, Deputy Editor Unless you're made of stone, you've been deeply touched by the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina. And we information professional tend to be a compassionate bunch by nature. Natually we want to help...and the most pragmatic thing to do, of couse, is give money. It's probably safe to say that we're all pretty much savvy enough not to open our wallets or whip out our credit cards without checking to make sure that the organization receiving our donations is legitimate. Unfortunately, in the wake of disasters ... (more)

Twins NotesI had an odd experience Monday. My mom...



Twins NotesI had an odd experience Monday. My mom had the day off from work for Labor Day and took the opportunity to sleep in. Meanwhile, I was up at 6:45, before the alarm even went off, and working by 7:05. It was like we had entered into some sort of bizarro world, where what I had experienced for the first 22 years of my life was flipped 180 degrees.Suddenly I was up bright and early, working. And suddenly my mom, who has gotten up at six in the morning every weekday for as long as I can remember, was nestled comfortably under the covers. Even my trusty Boston Terrier, Samantha, abandone ... (more)

Save $$ on Gasoline - 10% Rebate Offer



A continuous chain of increases in the Prime Rate by the Federal Reserve Board has been affecting a lot of consumers lately, as many credit card companies base their variable interest rate calculations on the prime rate plus some added margin. When the prime rate goes up, so do the interest rates on most variable rate credit cards. Now you can get something back. Alan Korn of Credit Card Information Services announced today that discounts in the form of a 10% rebate on gasoline purchases for the first 60 days, then 5% rebate thereafter on gasoline purchases, and 1% rebate on other purchases, ...

Bank of America and the 3 Dollar Check Charge



I admit I am not as fiscally sophisticated as a large number of folks on the planet, as my standard method of accounting goes like this: I have bills in one hand and money in the other. I throw the money at the bills, and one of two things happen, either I run out of bills, leaving me money, or I run out of money leaving bills. The former is the better state of affairs but shit happens. To ease the burden of the head lemur's accounting method for a lot of folks I buy stuff from, like the mortgage company, the utilities and the cable company, I write checks. I have a checking account, like mil ... (more)

ANOTHER MOBILE PHONE QUESTION (by: gromit)



A lot of the phone cards now have good rates on them. Have you also considered a prepaid account? We just top it up whenever we need to and just have to dial a 1800 number and put in a pin and it works anywhere! We get a really good rate on calls for this and the account is always there and credit is added almost immediately. We do take our tri band phone with us but have only used it for emergencies or for texting home.

Oversight, Anyone?



What do I have in commmon with Tom Tancredo, Jim Sensenbrenner, Paul Ryan, and Joe Barton? Well, nothing, really, but they were part of a contingent of twelve Republicans who voted against the $51.8 billion relief package for Katrina reconstruction, and I'm not?entirely?sure a 'nay' vote is a bad idea, although our motives almost certainly differ. Here's Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) on his vote against: "According to the Office of Management and Budget, we are spending money at a rate of $2 billion a day, and yet we in the Congress do not have many details at all on how that money is being s ...

Trading credit card debt for home equity debt (Bankrate.com)



I have about $12,000 in debt and $25,000 in home equity. The number of cards and load are hurting my credit. I learned my lesson regarding debt and now have been fighting to pay these off. Should I go for the home equity line of credit, or will the interest kill me?
