The safe bet is to close down and guard every penny, wait out the down turn so you're ready to enjoy life when the sun starts shinning again. But what is life if not enjoyed. So rather than taking pennies to the bank, why not just spend those dime more wisely.

Old curmudgeons like Andy Rooney have been doing that for years. Recently he shared his advice and for the most part his money saving ideas aren't half bad. The one thing I'd add is when dinning out, amp-up the enjoyment with a bottle of wine. Just be smart, bring the bottle, pay the corking fee. For the price you pay for a crappy bottle at a restaurant, you could buy the entire case on-line.

Like the sweet buzz from the holy water we would soon be drinking, the delight of that answer would stay with us all day. That inspiring answer to our simple question will cure this nation and delay my celebratory hangover. So as the cork popped we yelled the answer...

Waiting for? - No Ready for Change

Tonight I plan to stay home. Just relax, drink some wine and watch the game... but tomorrow things will change. Tomorrow, I'm going to wake-up and make change happen. Tomorrow, like many other great Americans I will do my patriotic duty. Tomorrow I will vote,... vote for change. So What'sssss Uuuuup!!!
