Will be fully disclosed……Here’s a threat I received from someone on my Martha Stewart post. All typos and formatting left intact. Address and name left intact also. Considering his last paragraph to me, I guess it’s time to “teach” him a lesson. Ms DeCoster.There has been a class warfare waged in this country by the [...]

It’s interesting to see the Martha Stewart verdict play out. Watching the TV news today, I saw some of the jurors speaking to the press.

He argues the case for email stamps. Concerning spam, there is the ideal program out there, and it’s called Spam Inspector. I received it as a birthday gift, and it’s exactly the program to have.

The last paragraph is worth the price of admission alone: Out-of-this-world vacations moved a step closer to reality Thursday with House passage of legislation setting guidelines for the future space tourism industry.
