More Money In Your Paycheck Soon

Many Americans will be seeing more money in their paychecks in the coming weeks. The credit is available to those with earned income. It's worth up to $400 a year for single filers and $800 for joint filers.President Obama has asked that all employers adjust their payroll systems by Wednesday so eligible workers can start receiving the new Making Work Pay tax credit through their paychecks. The credit, available for 2009 and 2010, was a part of the economic recovery package lawmakers passed in February.

Now do not look at your check expecting this great big windfall because it is not coming. divide the 400 or 800 by 52 weeks and you will see it is not a great amount, but in a time of recession every little dollar can sure help us. I guess this is a start, but we still have a long way to go before we are out of this recession, but more money in our pockets cannot hurt.

Twilight Movie Better Then I Thought!

Now I will start this post out by first saying that I am no Twilight fan at all or have ever read the books from this movie. I have a 17 year old daughter named Chelsie who loves the books and movie and recently she got the movie also. Of course she also went to the theaters as well when the movie first came out. I had been avoiding watching it even though she has asked me numerous times to watch it with her. Well, I opened my big mouth and promised this past weekend I would watch it which I did.

My first impressions when I seen the previews on television was I would hate this movie and it would be a big bore, but it was for my daughter so I thought I would keep an open mind. After about two hours of watching the film I must admit it was a very good movie and one that people should see. Now I am not into the vampire or werewolf thing, but it was well written and well acted and I found myself very interested in the storyline. I will never go out and read the book series, but it is a good movie and one that people should check out.

Eyeglasses Getting The Right Ones

It seems one of the things that we need to take better care of is our eyes. Many times we forget that we have only one set and improper care can really hurt us down the road. When people first hear the word glasses many crazy thoughts pop in our minds.

One company that I have found that gives superior customer service and makes sure you have what you need is With a very vast selection and the ability to get you the right set of glasses that you need makes this company your first choice in eye wear.

Over the years glasses have really changed for the better. No longer are they big and bulky as designers have made them lightweight and designed in a way the people love. Getting the perfect set of glasses is not hard if you just take your time and ask plenty of questions and get the pair that is just right. My favorite place to shop for them is at as the selection and service they give you is second to none.
