  • Governor's Cup winner? Like picking Derby horse

    Governor’s Cup XXIII, Kentucky at Louisville.

    History tells us, as a season opener, picking a Gov’s Cup winner is like handicapping the Kentucky Derby – everybody’s an expert and nobody has a clue.

    More experience and two marquee stars belong to Kentucky – Derrick Locke and Randall Cobb. Louisville has all new people coaching, many new (and young) faces, and home field.

    Today, (keepin’ it simple, stupid) one man climbs out on one limb ...

    1. UK defensive line will be better than Louisville’s offensive one.

  • Writer learns from work at home scam

    Being a stay-at-home mom is a full time job.  However, for many different reasons moms may need to seek out other avenues that actually bring in some cash.  I am currently one of those moms.  Trying to find a job in this economy is tough.  Add to the fact that the hours I am available to work are after the kids have gone to school in the morning and only until they get out of school in the afternoon.  Oh, one more thing, I haven’t been employed outside the home in over twelve years.  Makes for a very interesting resume.
