Because I am old, I purchased a new Subaru Forester with the new safety devices mentioned in this article. The Forester is also easy for an older person to get in and out of. And your view out of the vehicle is unobstructed. In fact, Consumer Reports recommends the car for elderly people.
The loyal dog has appeared in paintings as far back as 4500 BC when canines were portrayed on cave walls... As the dog's relationship with the human evolved, so did the way he is represented in art. In the early Middle Ages, dogs were valued for their aggressiveness and appeared in paintings in packs on hunting expeditions. In the Renaissance, as dogs begin to be viewed more as domestic companions, they appear in paintings on the laps of ladies as objects of affection. In the 18th century, dog portraits became popular among the wealthy British.--Petcentric

One of the best views from the U.S.Capitol in Washington D.C. is from is from the Balcony of House Speaker Paul Ryan, just off the Speaker's Lounge. Ryan, of course, is from Janesville. WI. Last year Pope Francis waved to America from the historic Balcony while visiting the Capitol. As a guest at the Capitol Last week, I took a photograph from the Balcony which you will see at the end of this video.
But my video is really about some of the birds I saw in Washington.

This is an interesting article on awkward money moments at work. Trouble is the writer has no advice. After experiencing some of these moments,
- I try to stay away from drinking with coworkers after work. My family is waiting for me.
- I have my own charities and won't be forced by social pressure to donate to charities suggested by coworkers and bosses. (When I was in the U.S Army, a payroll officer with a gun at his side forced me and my fellow troopers to donate to the Red Cross.)
- If a coworker asks me to loan them more than a dollar, I can't do it because because I buy everything with a credit card and don't carry cash.

Money on Twitter
Many rip-offs are set up to make us greedy. Greed is an emotion the overrules common sense.
For example, an excited telephone caller says we have just won the $500,000 lottery. The caller congratulates us over and over again and asks what we might do with the money, planting the seeds of greed. Once greed is fully ignited, we are told about the $5,000 lottery tax we need to wire before getting our winnings. Over the years as a consumer reporter, I have talked with many deceived, but still-greedy victims who continued to feel there was a chance of getting the $500,000. A number of them were irritated with me when I told them they were out $5,000.
