Good News, Bad News, No News

Prostitutes, Feng Shui and Pink Pooches

1. This week, we all watched New York's governor resign after a prostitution bust. Did it seem like good news to you, bad news or no news?

2. Former vice presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro also resigned from Hillary Clinton's finance committee after she said Sen. Barack Obama "would not be in this position" if he were white or a woman of any color. Her comments, the reaction, her resignation -- was it good news, bad news or no news?

3. The owner of a McDonald's franchise in a growing Asian Los Angeles suburb has remodeled it using feng shui. Owner Mark Brownstein says he wanted to boost sales, so he hired a feng shui master to design waterfalls, wooden ceilings and doors that "confuse the evil spirits and keep the good spirits in." Does this strike you as good news, bad news or no news?

4. A Boulder, Colo., woman says she wanted to raise awareness of breast cancer, so she dyed her white poodle pink using beet juice and Kool-Aid. This violated a Boulder ordinance designed to stop people from dyeing rabbits and chicks for Easter, and so she faces a $1,000 fine. Is that good news, bad news or no news?

    Feng Shui can really be an option for people especially those in business fields for further advices on the lucky things, place or even people. Many may people may prefer a home office. Doing business in the confines of your home that poses a lot of advantages. A home office could mean just the desk where you keep your computer or the room in your home you dedicate to where you work at home. Home businesses are popular, with more and more people doing it, like lawyers, counselors, internet business people, etc. You could even Feng Shui your home office and furnish it with direct deposit payday loans. Since it’s a home business, you can deduct it from taxes. You want to make it comfortable, but not distracting, so leave the PlayStation in the other room. A decent home office might be worth direct deposit payday loans to spruce up
