Who exactly is paying for this?

(AP)-WASHINGTON By MARTIN CRUTSINGER — The government ran up the largest monthly deficit in history in February, keeping the flood of red ink on track to top last year's record for the full year.

The Treasury Department said Wednesday that the February deficit totaled $220.9 billion, 14 percent higher than the previous record set in February of last year.

The deficit through the first five months of this budget year totals $651.6 billion, 10.5 percent higher than a year ago.

The Obama administration is projecting that the deficit for the 2010 budget year will hit an all-time high of $1.56 trillion, surpassing last year's $1.4 trillion total. The administration is forecasting that the deficit will remain above $1 trillion in 2011, giving the country three straight years of $1 trillion-plus deficits.

Just for reference 1 trillion is a million millions, its 1000 get a visual click here
(There are only 308 million people in our country.)
(There are about 6.8 billion people in the world)
Again who is going to pay for this?

Preping for the Big week

Next week is National Engineers Week. (its always the 3rd full week of February) its in conjunction with George Washington's birthday because President Washington is considered the nation's first engineer, notably for his survey work.

My suggestions on ways to celebrate:
  • Kissing your engineer, or an engineer.
  • Asking them interesting engineering questions, that they might know the answer to. (act amazed and interested)
  • Looking carefully at something that was engineered and marvel.
  • Buy your husband a New Car.
ta da... A quick and easy list for anyone to celebrate the next very important week.

Valentine's Day Card

I'm thinking about this card for Lauren for Valentines Day. It has a manly feel yet just enough love to please.

My Brother started this Card Company called Cardsink They have some awesome cards. You can submit your own design and if it gets enough votes it will get printed and you get cash for your design, and you can buy cards like the one pictured above.

The question is will Lauren check my blog before valentines? Or should I get a different Card...
