Shopping Spree Game

I had a roommate once who got his MBA in business. Poor guy couldn't balance his checkbook. Turns out Presidents and congressmen can't either. Some people think all you need is a bigger credit card or else just print more money.

So here's the deal - How would you spend $3 trillion

$3 trillion. That is what Nobel prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz estimates the war in Iraq will cost our country. It's crippling our economy and causing our Iraq recession.

To put this colossal amount of cash into perspective, we've partnered with Robert Greenwald and our friends at Brave New Films to bring you a game to help people really understand what $3 trillion dollars can buy. Get ready to go on a 3 Trillion Dollar Shopping Spree!

And guess what? With that kind of money you can be selfish and still do good!
Check it out!

Winter's Officially over in our yard

3 pictures showing the demise of our winter snowpile

This last picture was taken just before noon on Saturday April 13th ... the snow pile in its final gasp!

We take great pride in our snow pile. Unlike the mall parking lots, this is a handbuilt snow pile from the furthest reaches of our driveway. It's a sign we had a good snowfall when the pile lasts to April 13th in Amherst.
