Desperate for some Feedback

31 03 2011

Ok, for the most part I’ve been blogging everyday (with the exception of a funeral & a weekend workshop/travel time).  I have this publicized to Yahoo!, Twitter, Facebook, and the like.  How often do you WANT to hear from me?  Is everyday good?  Is there content you want to see covered that I haven’t hit yet?  Do you want me to recycle the older stuff on occasion so you can see it if you missed it during the first round?  Would you prefer a few times a week instead?

Come on…help a girl out.  What do YOU want?  See the comment box below?  Please use it for me and give me some constructive feedback.

This is so ridiculous, I couldn’t help but share.  Be prepared, you’ll probably laugh out loud at some point.  Make sure your boss is out of earshot.

MID | WTH?

28 03 2011

MID?  What on earth does that stand for?

It’s Mortgage Interest Deduction.  Right now the Government rewards us for being homeowners by allowing us to deduct the interest we pay each year on our mortgages from what our taxable income is.  Pretty darn cool (even if you didn’t know, but own a home).  Just one of the many benefits of being a homeowner.  🙂  There is no deduction for your monthly rent if you don’t own a home, but a HUGE portion of your monthly payment in the first half of your mortgage (think at least 15 years) is ONLY interest….seriously – I haven’t run the numbers to give you the example, but assume it’s about 90%+.

If you’d like to see this continue, please contact your congress representative and tell them how you feel.  This is one of the many cuts being discussed in Washington right now.
