Things have been hectic as of late and I’ve fallen behind in a few things, like choosing a book winner for Free at 45.  Better late than never right?  I used a random number generator to choose between all the entries and comment 63 came out as a winner!  Congrats Jungle!

As an aside, for those of you who have emailed me questions over the last little while and haven’t gotten a response, my apologies, I’m slowly digging through my inbox and will get back to you when possible.

    The advice at Young and Thrifty to save money by grabbing free condoms at the local health center made me laugh.

    Good idea to start a separate stock thread at the CM forums.

    @Michael James :) Sorry sometimes I can be a little silly sometimes when I write… Why? have you hit up your health centre for condoms? ;)

    Thanks for the link, MDJ!

    @Young and Thrifty: No need to apologize. It was funny and probably good advice for certain people. There was a time in my life when I didn’t always have enough money for lunch when I definitely would have scooped some free condoms.
