My wife and I have gone from not having two pennies to rub together to making about $90,000 in the last few years. The problem is that I can’t get her interested in saving money.

Do you ever wonder why your water bill is so high?




DID YOU KNOW?: While serving as a decoder of Soviet Morse Code transmissions in the U. S. Air Force in 1951, Johnny Cash was the first American to learn that Josef Stalin had died.





It was recently reported that China will soon open the largest Bible production plant in the world on the outskirts of the city of Nanjing. The plant will be operated by government-sanctioned Amity Press and reportedly will print one-million Bibles each month.’
