Just Because...

...I could.

Jeff, over at WormTown Taxi, had a good suggestion. Many taxpayers here in the U.S. will be receiving an “economic stimulus payment” in the coming weeks. Because of the troubled economy, I imagine most folks will be using their check to pay monthly bills or applying it to credit card balances. But if you are planning on pushing the money back into the economy, make it your local economy. Instead of shopping in the big chain stores or dining in the national chain restaurants, make it a point to patronize local businesses. It’s always a good idea to “buy local”, but especially nowadays.

Funny isn't it, over on this side of the world the Government is madly trying to get us to STOP spending money, the economy is overstimulated apparently.

Absolutely. I love the small little shops and the folk that have a good idea and do something with it. I always look for the "small man". I think the world in general is in for a hard time. We all spend far too much money. I bet you we could eat out of cupboards and fridges for a week without having to spend a cent. We have had a few days leave so have been catching up with all the blogs. Fiona

Hi DMM -
I had no idea that was the case. I guess they want you folks to save more. Funny, they want us to save more and spend more!!!

Hi Fiona -
You're right about folks having a good idea and making that leap of faith to realize a dream. They deserve to be given a fair shake.
And I hope we all get these problems sorted out very soon.
Thanks for stopping by again!
