PatientSaver had a really great post about an article in AARP called The Leap to Cheap.
I enjoyed it alot and found several quotes that are excellent
"they've found ways to be wealthy that don't depend on earning more cash or buying more things."
"thrift is more about knowing what you cherish, then skipping the rest"
"Someone drops a million dollars on you—how would it change your life? More than 9 out of 10 replies said, in so many words, that money cannot alter their lives."
Last night I finally got the movie Julie and Julia from the library. I've had it on hold for about 6 months and at one time there was more than 400 people waiting for it. It was pretty good. I really enjoyed the portrayel of the relationship between Julia Child and her husband. I gave it to my mom to watch before I have to return it.
Being inspired by the movie, this morning I made Julia Child's 6 minute boiled eggs, which she calls a substitute for poached eggs. They were so good. The yolk was creamy and rich and yummy. Eggs seem like such a simple food, but I love them for flavor and variety - you can do so much with an egg.
I finished reading the library book The Good, The Bad and the Uncanny by Simon R Green. Sci/Fi - very good.
