Dear Gattina ~~ Those quotes about money are very good, and too true. I have been cooking some of those things in my fridge. I like to have some cooked meals in the freezer.
Take care, Love, Merle.

That Mark Twain! HE was a smart one!!!

The second one, I remember Mr. Hope standing on stage saying this...it's stuck to me over the years, and that's why still today I don't buy 'on time' through banks. It's more or less demeaning to go in and apply for a loan. I so agree with this one.

Love your money talk!!!
