Hubby and I returned from a long weekend away to find a wounded bird on our deck. It’s feathers were disheveled and it cowered when I came near instead of flying away. Hubby called animal control, which was closed for the night. So the cops came. http://www.bargainbabe.com
This is an excerpt of a blog post I wrote about my future as a journalist in the Internet age. It was published today on the new media website Journalism 2.0. Four months ago I gave up my job as a reporter, blogger and columnist at a mid-size newspaper to launch my own personal finance blog. I knew in my gut that this career path, though uncertain, held more promise. http://www.bargainbabe.com
Later this afternoon my producer Erin and I are setting out to find – and film – a Lincoln Lunch in Los Angeles. What’s a Lincoln Lunch? A $5 meal named after the dead President that graces the fiver. I strongly believe that it is possible to find a tasty Lincoln Lunch in any city and someday I hope to test this claim!
A few weeks ago my friend started a recession garden to calm her fears about the recession. If she got laid off and couldn’t find a job, at least she had food. Now “sprouties” are appearing in her tiny patch of dirt and she is ecstatic. If you are interested in gardening and/or coping with economic stress, I highly recommend reading her story, which you can find a link to at http://www.bargainbabe.com
