I used to have a Pottery Barn credit card. I closed it last summer because we never use it. I got it when we were furnishing a house to get 20% off of crap.
In December, I had a billing issue to the tune of about $300 with the company (non-PB credit card issue, it had to do with a merchandise cre...

The "Where did you turn the corner" thread from the other night made me reflect a little this weekend.
My dad retired making less than $35,000 household income. I still have 30 good working years, and our household income is three times that. When he dies, he'll leave a house worth about $75,000 ...

Mississippi has a bill in committee to raise the age of compulsory school attendance from 16 to 18.
I am of the belief that there should be no age, but it certainly should not be higher than it is. The thugs that are going to drop out cause a lot of problems in the schools - I say get rid of the...

I haven't been affected by many of Obama's stupid policies. My health insurance premiums did not increase, I'm covered through work so I didn't have to deal with the exchanges.
But this 529 thing will get me. I don't think it will pass, but anyone that doesn't see this as a slap in the face to th...

I haven't lived a thrilling life, I guess. You might call it "ordinary." I have a basic understanding from civics on how bonds work, but I have never been arrested, nor do I know anyone that has called me for bail money.
Here in the Jackson area, there is a lot of talk about low bonds in Hinds C...

Friend of mine stopped at a car dealership to check out a truck. Dealership was closed, so he just pulled in (right outside gate, but off the main road), left his car running and went and looked at the vehicle for about a minute.

For Mississippi State, it may very well turn out to be the hiring of Rick Ray as basketball coach. The No. 3 assistant on a mediocre Clemson team should have never been considered for a $1 MM/year job. He has absolutely killed what was becoming a decent basketball program for SEC standards (6 NCAA T...
