The great ATM fee debate

kens_korner

It seems the federal New Democratic Party has found a way to make headlines that has everyone talking.
By pointing the finger at the big banks for charging fees at their Automated Teller Machines and saying they are gouging the public, Jack Layton and the NDP, have picked up on an issue that we all face every time we go and use an ATM.

Is it the March rush already?

Wow!
What an amazingly busy week!
Traditionally January is a very quiet month and the first two weeks were no exception to that rule.
However, last week I felt like I was in mid March when all the winter activities wind down and I am running from event to another.


Thinking warm thoughts

It never seems to fail. We talk about the weather in the paper and it goes to the complete opposite.
Last week we had a poll in the paper asking people if they thought the cause of the mild weather was pollution.
Bam! Within a day or so the mercury plunged to sub-arctic temperatures and it as stayed there ever since.
Brrrrrrrrr it is cold out there!
It was only day two of the deep freeze and I was already sick of it.
Funny all winter we have had mild temperatures and after one or two days I was already tired of the cold.
But not much we can do about it... bundle up, throw more blankets on the bed at night and think warm thoughts.
That is what my dad and I did on Thursday.
Just as the weather settled in, he received his KOA camping guide for 2007.
We have looked at it twice since then and planned several fantasy trips... one to the badlands and one to Chicago and Michigan.
We also started talking about our annual spring camping trip to Itasca State Park and possibly a few extra trips this year. Heck the more we think about the warm weather the faster it will come... right??

I tried to fly but gravity won!

Have you ever slipped and fallen?
Well with the lack of snow and all the rain we have had it is like a skating rink out there.

It is amazing how much one minute in time can affect so many people.

Well not quite what I had going on over the weekend but I did have a bit more zip than I wanted.


Have to spend some to make some

Have to spend money to make money.
I have heard that old adage a hundred times or more over the years. Sometimes people are good at following it and more often than not people are apprehensive about it.
