Being a Diet Coke junkie who's trying to kick the habit, I found this post to be very helpful and motivating.  Made me get up and refill my water bottle for the 3rd time today.  Getting the water thing under control and betting that it helps my budget as well!  

Truthful Thursday ~ Water or Coke?

the computer screen or on a printed page.

#3.    To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the

with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.

#2.   To carry Coca-Cola syrup! (the concentrate) the 
                commercial trucks must use a

Important Information: Reverse Mortgages are neither "endorsed" nor "approved" by the Federal Government. The FHA (Federal Housing Administration) provides certain insurance benefits for lenders and borrowers in connection with the lender’s HECM loans; the FHA does not make or originate loans. The owner(s) retain title to the property that is the subject of the reverse mortgage until the person sells or transfers the property and is therefore responsible for paying property taxes, insurance, maintenance and related taxes. Failing to pay these amounts or failure to maintain the condition of your property may cause the reverse mortgage loan to become due immediately. A reverse mortgage is a complex loan secured by your home. Whether such mortgage makes sense for you depends on your financial situation and needs. For these reasons, we strongly recommend that you consult with a qualified independent housing counselor, family members and other trusted advisers before making this decision.
