Around the Web...

According to CNN.com, the economy is about to go to hell in a hand basket! (They are SO negative!)

So I decided to see what else was happening around the web...

And Carol Denbow was kind enough to feature ME on her website today! Thank you so much, Carol. And glad you solved your computer problem...

I wish the media would try to put a more positive spin on things and help the economy, instead of scaring everyone so much and making conditions worse.

Yup, the media is a beast that devours everything in its sight. So glad you came up with some bright spots! (BTW, loved the NY Times article.)

Thanks for the link to Helen Ginger's post. That's news I've been trying to follow for sometime, and any additional info on it is great.

Thank you,

Oh, the economy. The thing is, even in bad economies, there are upsides. A man on CNN (yep!) last night said he plans to turn off the TV, save electricity and have a family reading night once a week. Now that's positive!

And than you for mentioning my interview with Paul Bruno, Diane. He's one positive guy if I ever talked to one! And renweing yourself is definitely a positive topic. (-:

Best,
