I loved this story by Robin Bal over at the FortuneWatch blog: A man walked into a bank in New York City one day and asked for the loan officer.He told the loan officer that he was going to Philippines on business for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000. The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form of security for the loan.Then the man handed over the keys to a new Ferrari parked on the street in front of the bank. He produced the title and everything checked out The loan officer agreed to accept the car as collateral for the loan.The bank’s president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh at the guy for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral against a $5,000 loan.An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank’s underground garage and parked it there.Two weeks later, the guy returned, repaid the $5,000 and the interest, which came to $15.41.The loan officer said, “Sir, we are very happy to have had and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled…. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow “$5,000?.The millionaire replied: “Where else in New York City can I park my car for $15.41 and expect it to be there when I return”Well thats how the rich stay rich, they know a lot more about Money Management…. Look after your cents and the Dollars will look after themselves.

Key Largo, FL – An Underwater SCUBA Adventure

This fish also has a beautiful orange pattern on the back of its pectoral fins that announces to potential predators that they are poisonous.

2) Minnow Ball – This huge school of tiny fish was so dense you couldn’t see what was in front of you…. These fish travel in such huge numbers to protect themselves from predators, and all around this huge ball of fish were tons of large fish like groupers, snappers, and jacks.

3) Crustaceans – Shrimp, crabs and lobsters were plentiful and lobster season started while we were in Key Largo. I saw several barber pole shrimp, loads of lobsters, a few crabs, and a tiny blue shrimp that was living in an anemone.

1) I finally made it over 100 readers in feedburner. That has been a huge goal of mine for a while. Now I need to make it to 1000. 2) If you don’t get it right the first time pull out and try over, parallel parking that is. There never seems to be enough space […]
