  My girls are having a blast playing Go Vacation on the Wii.  In the beginning they didn’t seem to be too interested in this new game, so I started my own Wii adventure while they went on about their business.  Let me just say it didn’t take long until I heard the word, “Can

Do You Know Your Score?

With all of our drama about cars breaking down, the not-worth-the-cost-of-repair-case and ‘What to do next?’ thoughts, I had a very specific resolution to this car situation in mind, ‘We need a new car.  What can we afford?’  I knew that credit would come into play so I wondered what our credit score was.
