    MEDICAL MARIJUANA -- An inside look at Maryland's budding medical marijuana industry

    There is nothing you can do about it at this stage but pray. This is not a blessing and I am now in Colorado and I see it first hand daily.

    Possible local card fraud .88 cent charge from Bismark ND.

    Check every account you have daily. Checking, savings, credit and medical. Yes medical accounts. I was told this 20 years ago by a friend who is one of the plankowners of the FBI's cyber fraud program. I questione him with "daily???" He responded, "yes daily. How big of a head start do you...

    Lockheed Martin anticipates job reductions @PAXRVR

    Best advice I ever received, and heeded. November 1983: "No matter who you work for and no matter what is promised always be prepared to lose your job tomorrow and never count on anyone else for your retirement."

    Need To Turn Tags In

    Can I get a refund of my registration fee if the license plates are not expired? You may be eligible for a refund if your license plate expiration date is more than 12 months away. Ask the MVA customer service agent about a refund when you return the license plates. Otherwise you will need...

    PSA - please read!!!

    For a con to work the mark must be greedy and/or desperate. What you and I may see as a scam right up front there will be many whose vision gets clouded by the stated greed and/or desperation. The adage of "if it sounds to good to be true" will always apply.

    Debt consolidation

    Moving day

    As a Kansas Native I see this making perfect sense and I have loaded a trailer such as this with household goods many times. And yes, they are cleaned out and not just for this type of event. The ranchers I know take very good care of their equipment.

    The economics of gambling

    Year 2008ish - Borgata - Gypsy Bar - Bud Light and a Vodka Tonic - $14 before tip - everything was high-priced. I like nice things at a fair price but felt everything about our stay was priced high. We ventured to the other places and we don't expect much but we do like clean. I remember...
