This last week brought about a lot of change, but not just for myself but for a little girl who was removed from a Puppy mill.
Hope has come into our home to bring love, smiles and much needed exercise. Hope is 8 years old and tooth-less with her first major grooming coming up in a week. We believe she is a Maltese who is the best lap dog, yet when you set her down she takes off like a coiled spring.

We look forward to the distraction, love and are prepared for the regular medical and grooming needs. Planning ahead definitely eases the burden a bit.


Q:If you refuse to show your ID at the store when giving a credit card, can the store refuse to the sale?

A: According to MasterCard and according to card issuer rules, if it's signed, the retailer must accept the card on its face. Report them to your card issuer immediately if the store owner doesn't agree.

▓ If you go to thrift stores, garage sales or buy online postal stamps of older denominations you may save yourself some money and if you pick up some stamps that don't have a denomination of them you can check all of the non-denominated (unmarked) U.S. stamps at Alphabetilately

▓ Did you miss the special on tv called Unbroke: What You Need To Know About Money?
I missed it and was glad to find that two PF bloggers who give different perspectives on the show. Free from Broke talks about Unbroke, with videos and Lazy Man and Money broke down the show minute by minute

    It just saddens my heart to think such a sweet little girl was mistreated a puppy mill. I'm glad you rescued her and I'm sure she'll have a fantastic second half to her life. Thanks for looking out for the furry friends.
