Tax Refund Cycle Chart

If you typically file your taxes early, you cannot file them next year until January 31st. However, if you are someone that has to file early for whatever reason, there is a handy tax refund cycle chart that you can check to find out when you might receive your refund. Not only does this help give you an idea of when it might come, it saves you time of having to call the IRS and waste your time with a cycle of phone transfers or having to look it up online; now you have it in one easy to use place.

Make sure you have all of your paperwork ready such as your W2's and 1099's, if applicable and you'll need any receipts that are applicable, your bank statements, brokerage statements, and 2439 forms if applicable to your situation. Once the IRS starts accepting tax filings after January, you can then check when your refund may come.

Richer Than You

Have you ever wanted to say to something that you are richer than them? Well, what if you could prove it? Sure, not everyone has the means to even consider putting themselves on a site proving wealth but for that that can afford to do so, sometimes it's nice to be able to flaunt your wealth and don't think for a minute that some rich people don't do that. It's only natural to some to want to show off what they have achieved through hard work and success.

Richer Than You is a social network site where people can do just that - show their worth by creating a profile where the only people who can see it are those that have paid the minimum set. Of course, the more you pay, the higher you are ranked. It's like a competition for rich people.

Many of you that read this may think that it's a ridiculous idea but in all honesty, for those that are very wealthy, it's an idea they may embrace. Check it out and see if you want to showcase your riches too!

The Big Wide Calm

Paige has dreams – dreams of being a rock star. John is a former singer and songwriter who was somewhat famous in his time. Now put the two together and you get the formula for a novel that is as interesting as it is realistic. The two butt heads and before dreams can be realized, they have to work together as a team and that may just be harder to do than it seems.

The Big Wide Calm is an experience. The story was engaging and the characters were not only realistic but interesting, which is as important as the writing style, which by the way, was excellent as well.

The story starts with Paige meeting John as his recording studio and him inviting her to stay there so he can record her album at no charge. Of course, Paige is no ordinary pop star wannabe; she's complex, multi-layered and far beyond her years, as you'll find out when reading more about her. John is complex too but its his mysterious demeanor and sadness that leads her to discover more about him. I won't give anything away but this is a story that draws you in and allows you to feel as if you are a part of the book, not just reading it.

No matter what kind of writing style you enjoy or what genre you usually read, this book is an excellent choice. The story makes you want to read more and when you've finished, you've read a novel that will stick with you and make you glad that you had the opportunity to experience it.

This is my first novel from Rich Marcello but I enjoyed every minute and will be checking out more of his work. I highly recommend The Big Wide Calm and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Time for a Vacation

No, we're not going on a vacation again yet but I sure want to. While we plan on visiting New Orleans again on our next trip, I miss the Caribbean. I've been doing quite a few articles on areas in the Caribbean lately and it makes me miss it. Whether it's the Bahamas, Grand Cayman, or Mexico, all of those areas are places we've visited and want to return to.

I do believe we'll go in a couple of years and hopefully money isn't an issue. In the past, we were able to save up and go but this year it's been harder to try to save. However, at least you can pay for your cruise in advance and make payments if you need to. Then, all you need is your spending money and money to get to the port.

Now we are lucky enough to live in Florida and can drive to the ports at least but if you're looking at going, check out where you can save on a variety of things, including airfare.
