Blog Anniversary

It’s been one year since my first post on Thinker to Thinker. YEAH! 🙂
Thank you, Prodos, for the opportunity to blog here! I still get a kick out of the Thinker to Thinker theme song – “If I Only Had a Blog…”

In celebration, I am adding an image ofÂa lovely crape myrtle blossom from the little tree that my husband and I planted in February. It was approximately 4 ft. tall and a bunch of dead looking sticks.
And now…

Religious totalitarianism

I recommend watching a PBS series of interviews done by Bill Moyers on Faith and Reason. My husband and I were able to catch the interview with Salman Rushdie. He was captivating and I wonder who his major philosophical influences are.

Spending Smart

Today is Summer Solstice, the longest day of sunshine (or not, depending on where you live) of the year.
I always look forward to this day because I know that from today on the day light hours will be getting shorter and shorter till autumn and then… CHRISTMAS! (Said like a little kid looking out the window for Santa.)
Every year I swear that I will get shopping for the last half of the year birthdays and Christmas done early. So far my plans haveÂnot completelyÂcome to reality, but that doesn’t stop me!
So this morning I am looking at financial planning and making sureÂmyÂplans are in place for the rest of this year and beyond.
Below are a couple of useful links:
Clark Howard (who doesn’t love Clark?! I like his radio show and his site is full of good tips and information)
Tomorrow’s Money (budget planning)

And just for fun, here’s aÂquiz on figuring out whether you are a Financial Diva (for the ladies of course).
I am a Financial Diva in Training… eh hem

Financial Diva in Training!
Financial Diva in Training
You try your hardest to save money and get ahead in your expenses, but sometimes new trendy clothes or your daily Venti Frappuccino habit seems to get in the way of becoming that Ultimate Financial Diva. While you might not always
have extra spending money everyday, you splurge when you deserve it …and
who doesn’t deserve it every once in a while!

More news from Colorado

Joshua Sharf From View from a Height Blog hasÂpostedÂsomeÂinteresting thoughtsÂon the possibleÂforthcoming Atlas Shrugged the movie. I’m still reserved about getting too excited because it’s been “in the works” for what seems like ages.Â
I agree with Joshua that it’s going to be difficult to make a movie as good as the book. While it could be an exciting creative adventure, a result anything less than excellent is not good enough. I think it’ll be a stressful project.

Joshua hasÂalso postedÂmore pictures of my mountains! Makes me soooo homesick!
