My computer died on Monday. I am waiting for it to get fixed. I must have burnt it out by too much use. I am not sure that is a good thing. Right now I am sitting in my trusty library using their computer. If I can get on other computers you will see more posts. I am sorry. It won't be long. Thanks and Happy Tax Day.

Column April 15

I want to thank everyone who writes to me saying that they love my column. People tell me how I am making their life easier and more affordable. I have had comments from people that it is like Christmas everyday because they are receiving so many freebies in their mailbox. I can’t stress enough how my advice can save you hundreds of dollars. If you are a new reader please go to or to read past columns. Much of the information is timeless that can be used over again. It is very gratifying to be able to help people save money. Thank You again for all your wonderful comments and tips that you send to me.
