The Affordable Care Act also known as Obama Care

September 26th, 2013 Posted in Educational Forum

flag003The Affordable Care Act also known as Obama Care is supposed to be available starting Oct. 1 2013. Right now you can go to the website healthcare.gov and sign up for information by e-mail as it becomes available. Not having total faith in the government I used a secondary e-mail address rather then my primary e-mail. From reading articles and talking to people who have no health insurance I have heard that in Volusia county we will have a choice of six companies with three or four plans in each. All plans are supposed to include prescription coverage, and doctors visits. From the healthcare.gov website you will be directed to set up your market place account. I have done the market place account again using my secondary e-mail. To do the market place account you will have to create an account name and a pass word plus answer 3 security questions. So give yourself enough time for all of it. By doing your market place account now you will be ready for Oct. 1 so that if all goes well with our government you could have health insurance on Jan. 1, 2014

Orange City Council Meeting…. Please come and support

September 24th, 2013 Posted in Crafts

Here is a post about the Colin’s Anderson Orange City Skate Park…Please take a minute and if you can, also attend the meeting tomorrow night. I am!!
Tomorrow night I will be attending another City Council meeting… The Mayor called me the other day to inform me that our local chapter of VIA (Village Improvement Agency) wanted to choose CDP as their local organization to help this next year I will be letting the Council know about this wonderful news as well as ask them to give us a more concrete promise of Coleman Park as a final destination of Colin’s Dream Park I NEED AS MANY PEOPLE THERE WITH THEIR CDP SHIRTS AS POSSIBLE TO SHOW UP AND SHOW THEIR SUPPORT!! So far we have not had a showing of support at the council meetings, and I understand how busy we all are… But this one is important, this is where the council will decide if they want to promise us that land we very desperately need. Thanks for all you do!!

Market is up!

September 18th, 2013 Posted in Business, Finance Tips

stock-market-apps-for-ipad-iphoneWell the market is up again. Do not become complacent. Remember what goes up also goes down. Be very aware of the price you buy at and remember the price you buy at dictates your profit.

Easy & Fun Embellished Serving Plates

September 12th, 2013 Posted in Crafts, Recipes

lugn-plate__0089822_PE222882_S4A great trick for any holiday serving table is to take your basic, plain dinner or serving plate and using stiff icing glue candy to the rim of the plate.  Just select the candy and colors based on the holiday.  Candy corn works great for Halloween!

Learn from the past…

September 11th, 2013 Posted in Crafts

Remember it is not how much you earn, but what you do with what you have earned. Learn from your past to improve your future. One of my most useful investing tools is a small spiral notebook, I write down what I doing in the market and why. This helps to make me think before I act.
