I recently took advantage of the 'cash for clunkers' program offered by the US Government. I got $4500 trade in on our old Mercedes that was gathering dust, and sitting in the driveway taking up room. Now I am reading about a new program..that is more local or statewide throughout some of the nation...Trade in Your Old Refrigerator or appliance for a new one. But when I researched further....Is $50-200.00 trade in for your old refrigerator enough ( that is what some in the Northeast US are talking of)? Okay..the fridge may not work..so that is one thing. But for those of us that have older refrigerators..Is it worth an investement of upwards of $500 for a $30 trade in? Not in my kitchen. Unless like this story notes - its a Beer Refrigerator???
What price would it take you to trade in your old refrigerator for a newer model?
I found this interesting article on what to do if you drop your cellphone in water...I wish I had access to it, when my wife dropped hers in the toilet a few months back. What a fiasco. a new phone, but she didn't know it came with an additional contract.
The use of friend's names by Hollywood producers is frequent in Hollywood, in a Kids Show, my daughters name was used, and was even part of a McDonalds Happy Days meal. But in some cases, peoples names are used in series in allegedly revengeful ways, and that is what may be the case for Sarah Goldfinger, who was involved in a real estate deal with Scott and Melinda Tamkin that didn't happen. Fast foward to a CSI episode that included real estate agents Scott and Melinda who were involved in some bad bad things...as one would expect from CSI. The fact the original characters name was Tamkin, and allegedly changed at the last minute, adds to the case. This should be an interesting case...Hollywood, Revenge, Money, Property, Prestige....The Tamkins are suing for 6 million dollars.

On May 5, a super secret meeting took place in NYC, organized by Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and David Rockefeller Jr. Among the attendees were Ted Turner, Eli Broad, and others. Each was given 15 minutes to discuss how they saw the worldwide recession, and plan for the future. I could go on....but it was such a secret meeting, that the only article posted so far has been in the Irish Central
