7 Reasons the 21st Century is Making You Miserable

Published by under Happiness

I was going to bitch about all the diamond and jewelry commercials that happen this year until I stumbled upon this little gem. I don’t agree with everything said here, but I do think the outcome is worth reading the whole article. You’ll have to look past the seemingly overwhelming nefative tone of the article to catch the good stuff. Essentially it says that we aren’t happy because technology is enabling us, perhaps even forcing us, to be unhappy. I’m going to be re-reading this one for awhile to catch what I missed by skimming over it the first time.

Truly Free Credit Report

Published by under Money

One thing you’ll discover about me is that there is little I dislike more than false advertising. A few years back, I got suckered into the TV offers that were touting a free credit report with an actual credit score. All I got were lighter pockets and useless pages of data that didn’t include an actual credit score as offered. The good thing is, the party responsible for those ads was sued. The bad news is, it didn’t put them out of business.

Let me get to the point. There’s a place where you can actually get a truly free credit report from each of the three major credit reporting agencies once per year. Stretch it out and every four months you can have a report filled with useful data. There still isn’t an actual credit score, but it’s a step in the right direction. Someone should award them with the domain name another company has but doesn’t back up. Get all the info at:
