But if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have $214 cash.
Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle. It's called the 401-Keg.

Should we warn her? Nah! as you can see by the backpack we sent her to school that way. My theory is that smart is the new cool.

I'm not sure if it is because I used to swim competitively and still enjoy swimming - or because I get to see first hand how much my kids give to become strong swimmers, but I love, love, love seeing them in the pool. Samantha has made tremendous personal gains as part of the Eugene Swim Club they have joined vastly improving her stroke and cutting time. Plus she is just a fish. One of her frustrations with the pictures of her swimming is that she looks "too happy" in all them. She wants to appear more fierce or focused or something. Don't fight it kid. One of life's true blessings is finding something you love to do and doing it well.

Charlie must have decided that he was too old this year to trick or
treat. Instead, at his request, we took a glue gun, some carhart
overalls, an old flannel shirt, and some raffia and a glue gun to put
together a a scarecrow costume. When trick or treaters came to our
door, Charlie would wait until they reached into the bowl for candy
and grab their arm. (only the big kids...). He had tons of fun and
got lots of laughs.
I'm especially pleased at how well the dead herb plants added to the ambiance of our front porch on Halloween evening!
