Welcome to my blog. Thanks for coming! One day I hope my little piece of internet real estate will be home to lots of family photos, pictures of my scrapbook and card art, with some random thoughts and memories posted on a somewhat regular basis. Mostly my world is very predictable, but occasionally some excitement will find me, so visit often. Who knows what useful (or useless) information you may find here.

This Is Why I Hate Numbers. (Follow Up To Previous Post)

Okay, I TOLD you people I don’t do numbers. As my smart-alecky daughter so gleefully points out, the math is all wrong in Mr. B’s formula. It’s not $425,000.00 to everyone, it is $425.00. I’m so sad. It looks like he’s about as good in arithmetic as I am. He divided 85 billion by 200 thousand, not billion. So, I guess I will have to contact my senators and tell them “Never Mind”. I’ll go rip up my deposit slip now.


  1. Talk about a stimulus package. I'd love to get a few hundred grand as a "rebate."

  2. The funny thing is, I went to the govt web site to send an e-mail to the senators and reps, and there are forums there where folks can write stuff... and I saw that *plan* quoted several times. And another person had changed the numbers to 700B, saying to give 300M Americans 1M each, and it would only cost 1B. Nope- that would cost like 300Trillion dollars. So I don't feel so mathematically challenged now!! HA!
