Stimulus Package Needed, But Won’t End It~ Blogger Giveaways

Good Afternoon Friends,
Well i took a load of stuff up to julie and darrell's,afterwards i went to the Dr. with Rita to carry Kolby.They seem to think he has add.He is 3 and 1/2 now.He is very loud and sometimes a littl out of control.He almost demands your attention and he is real bad at it with his mom.There is more but that is another story.lol
Br. Bhang put him on a light med just to see if it helps,said it would help him sleep better too..so we shall see.Neither of us like the idea of medding him up and we won't but maybe it will help a little before he gets older and it is worse.Keep Kolby in your prayers if you would.i do thank you.

have a great night,giveaway listings on bottom!Thanks for the comments and emails..thanks to you followers as well...;)

Today Ben Bernanke talked about the stimulus package currently being discussed by President-elect Obama and his incoming administration. He believes it will help, but that it won’t be enough to bring a lasting recovery. From the International Herald Tribune:

The chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke, said Tuesday that the fiscal stimulus package currently being discussed by the incoming U.S. administration would help revive the economy but would not be enough to bring a lasting recovery.
“Fiscal actions are unlikely to promote a lasting recovery unless they are accompanied by strong measures to further stabilize and strengthen the financial system,” Bernanke said in a speech at the London School of Economics. “A modern economy cannot grow if its financial system is not operating effectively.”

Bernanke said the Federal Reserve still has “powerful tools” at its disposal to stem the financial crisis even after lowering its benchmark interest rate virtually to zero in December.
The economic outlook has continued to worsen even after the Treasury’s injection of about $250 billion into the banking sector, and Bernanke said that more capital injections and guarantees might become necessary.
He also outlined several options to help financial institutions with their troubled and hard-to-value assets, which continue to be a barrier to improving private investment flows.

Among the options, he mentioned the public purchase of troubled assets, providing asset guarantees and the creation of a so-called bad bank.
Bernanke reiterated the need for “stronger supervisory and regulatory systems,” while being careful not to introduce rules that would “forfeit economic benefits of financial innovation and market discipline.”
Is it just me or do these guys all sound like they’re really not sure what to do to turn things around? Are they just trying a bit of this, and a bit of that - hoping that something will stick? That’s the feeling I’m getting.
On Monday, In his final news conference before leaving office, President Bush defended the stimulus package as necessary:
President Bush stood by his decision to support the U.S. Treasury Department’s injection of billions of dollars into the economy to unfreeze the financial markets.

Our final winner of the 12 Days of Christmas giveaway series will receive a copy of Ralphina, the Roly-Poly(value $24.95). No, not Rolie Polie Olie, this is a story about another kind of Roly Poly my kids love -- the real kind.

Did you know that roly-poly bugs are part of the crustacean family? Or that they breathe through gills? These are just some of the fun roly-poly facts I learned when I read Ralphina, The Roly-Poly, a charmingly illustrated book by artist and former teacher Claudia Chandler.ends jan 18th

As a parent of a toddler who is in the beginning phases of potty training, I know that the day I throw away that last diaper will be a celebration in our household. I’m going to throw a party for my husband and I when we make it through to the other side. Someone once told me that everybody they’ve ever known is potty trained, which means that our chances of being successful with our son are pretty much guaranteed. In February, I’ll be starting a new series on potty training. Some of you may look with anticipation, while others may dread this developmental stage. Come back starting February 2 for articles, tips, interviews, product picks and giveaways.
Spread the word and gain up to 2 extra entries for each giveaway. You can place the cute little button hubby made on your blog through February 6 and/or tweet about the event. Be sure to place the permalink of your blog (or blog post) and/or tweet in the Mister Linky below. If you have any questions, feel free to email me
