Income inequality and how it impacts life in the USA.

I have got to admit, I envy those of you living outside the US sometimes. Today I am just not loving our consumer driven corporate America. There are just too many greedy people out there looking to use one another to get ahead in life, this leaves the rest of us going without and struggling. Do any of you ever stop to think of the massive divide between incomes these days? Many are making millions annually and I even read that "the United States has one of the highest levels of income inequality". I don't doubt it for one second! (want to see it on a graph?) I was just wondering how many Americans earn at least a 6 figure income and how that would compare to the rest of the population....

Clever Holiday Gifts I found- November 2007

I have gotten the majority of my big holiday shopping out of the way prior to thanksgiving this year. Yay for me! I try to do this every year and am not always successful, this year I pulled it off though! Oh, by the way of you still need to do holiday shopping consider doing it from the comfort of your own home! I did all my shopping online and will only be visiting a store or two between now and Christmas. You can even start your "black friday" shopping from home now! Visit your favorite stores on 12am on black friday and get the deals without having to wait in line outside those stores in the wee hours of the morning- unless you really love the chaos of black friday...

A holiday wish and a tattoo.

I am addicted to digital photography! I take way to many photos and even had to buy an external hard drive to store all my photos! I am hoping for a new digital camera or camcorder this holiday season. I specifically need a digital camera that allows me to change the lens for different types of photos. I really want to be able to shoot macro shots and other close ups on things. I already have a digital camera and I take many photos of the pets and of the garden. It's nice to be able to capture those special moments! Like this one where my brother is wearing my mom's sweater (because he is cold) while he is watching me get my first tattoo that my other brother was giving...

Comfy and professional womens shoes

I hate shoe shopping! I am too picky I guess and I can never seem to find shoes that are exactly what I need. I like them to look nice and feel nice in addition to serving their purpose for whatever occasion. I am on my feet for long hours and often times I need a presentable pair of shoes that comfortable, warm, supportive and so on. I found these clogs I really like over at Dansko they are the black Corinne womens clog. They are slip on (which I love) because they are clogs and they seem pretty sturdy and solid but supportive. This is a hint for all my family members who need gift ideas ;-p I also managed to find some holiday gift ideas at the site that...
