Can you believe it? Two posts in one day! As I was ironing this morning, I was listening to Matt (and Meredith and Al and....) and they were talking about the Presidents plan to help people facing foreclosure. Since the dropping dollar was on my mind and Matt had already told me that if I was planning a trip to Europe to put the brakes on it, well, I decided to write the President a letter, cause, you know I am sure he reads my blog.....

Dear Mr. President Bush,

After hearing about your plans to help people facing foreclosure due to the economy, I decided that maybe you could help us out. You see, we make our monthly mortgage payment every month. That is not the problem. I heard this morning that the dollar has dropped in value even more and our upcoming trip to Italy will cost us even more because of this drop. We would very much appreciate you making our March mortgage payment to free up that money for us to make up for the drop in the U. S. dollar. You wouldn't mind doing that for us, would you?

Next time you are in Maine, give us a call.

Dear Ms. Cakes,

Yes, I do read your blog and am at wits end when you miss a day.

In regard to my having the government pay you March mortgage payment to help free up the money(Euros) you need to enjoy your trip to Italy, I will take this up with the Vice President and Condi and see if we can free up the money in our budget.

As you can imagine we have quite a few requests from good people like yourselves who really deserve the money to enjoy a trip abroad. Tell Matt to mind his own business and encourage you to get out and see the world. You only live once.

Ms Cakes, I will get back to you as soon as possible if I am able to fit your March mortgage payment into our budget. Until then bon voyage.


PS. I don't get to Maine too often,but I will tell Mom and Dad to stop by the next time they are in Kittybunkport.

This reminds me of a short article I read in yesturday's USA TODAY - "Weak Dollar Draws More European Visitors in 2007 -

Yep, I'm reading it! Thank you.

And perhaps, Mr. Bush, you could help us out in May when we head to the Netherlands?

So you should be back home from your Italian adventure, but you haven't posted yet. Is it jet-lag, piles of dirty laundry or day dreaming about all the wonderful things you saw?

Please hurry up and tell us all about it. You know we live vicariously through you.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
