  • Sandy - Great story.I know most of Elizabeth Smart's story but to read it in her own words was very compelling. I felt very bad that she had to go through such horror but her faith is amazing and she has been blessed with a wonderful family. Even if someone doesn't have the same type of wonderful family, we all have access to God in the same way and can live through much with faith.
  • katerina - Just do it! Your health - in your hands.I had UC for 9 years untill recently. Following this diet from Aug 2002. Simptoms free, thanks to Elaine that she shared her wisdom in this book.
    Doctors only think medications or surgery, we (patients) are like lab mice for them; At least they can diagnose successfuly sometimes.
    If you not sure, get this book from library.
  • G. Cox "Shanghaied" - Excellent home financial accounting softwareI have been a Quicken user for at least 20 years and I use it daily to enter each and every expense or bank transaction. I would feel lost without Quicken. I use it mainly to know how much money I have in the bank, how much my charges are on my credit cards and to know when upcoming bills are arriving. I have used the budget feature, but I prefer to use it as a tool to control elective expenses and for historical purposes. I like to know where the money went. And the money does get spent ever so quickly. And without some means of knowing and understanding where the money gets spent, you will not be able to feel like you know where your life's savings went - or lack of savings.

    I have used Quicken extensively for stock and investment transactions including brokerage fees and other expenses. And this has been one area where I have not been confident Quicken does an accurate job. I have found that you cannot trust Quicken for stock transaction accuracy. Always trust your brokerage company first and not Quicken.

    I have been using different versions of Quicken for years and I have to say that the new versions have little new to offer. The upgrades and new annual editions are mainly cosmetic or may have some new tax features. But I use Turbo Tax for that purpose. I have been using the 2010 version of Quicken since it first became available. And I can see very little difference between the 2012 version and the 2010 version - cosmetic at most. I'm sure there are some new features, but I doubt that I will ever use them. So far I haven't discovered anything new worth mentioning.

    But if you don't have Quicken already, I am a strong believer in home financial management to build your future retirement account and to determine if you are on track. I am currently technically recently retired, but now that I don't have an income, I think Quicken is more essential than ever. I must make my savings last the rest of my life, however long that may be. And even though I am alone now, it seems the monthy expenses are still high - much too high to sustain. So now that yet another year has passed, I need to analyze where the money went and what to do to dramatically lower expenses next year. And without disciplined daily financial recording into specific categories, there is no way to know where to start unless you are able to review history - accurate history.

    So I strongly recommend Quicken as a household financial management tool.
