Thanks for the great reply gurumamma. It's a lot of stress for not much money, but so clever! I would be terrified of missing the dates for withdrawal and payment. Of course my $500 limit card wouldn't work for it

I've been browsing on the credit matters blog someone listed here, and I just saw something entioned that has to have a catch. They said that if you get a 0% for one year credit card you could then put the money in a CD (for less than a year), making the interest pure profit. What's the catch? [I've never heard of a card that didn't charge interest and/or a fee on cash advances, I assume they exist]
To amuse the three year old while I'm putting the baby to sleep I use TV or a computer game (Poisson Rouge on a locked account). That's what TV and computers are for, to get you through the very toughest times.
But if you miss a payment on a credit card don't they all increase their rates the next month?
Oooh, good, multiple joints and it's just tendons, I like this (well, I'm sorry for your pain, but at least it's not arthritis).
I use yesterday's roast lamb, roughly chopped in the blender. Saute a chopped onion, when it's translucent add a tablespoon of butter and a tablespoon of flour, stir as it cooks and thickens, then gradually add a cup of the lamb drippings and/or stock of some kind. This is your gravy. Mix the chopped lamb, and about 3/4 tablespoons of tomato sauce (ketchup). Layer with the mashed spuds and cook. : ETA: BEEF? In a shepherd's pie?????
