I like the absence of city noise. When we go to Rehoboth beach, and all I can hear is the ocean, it's stunning.

My youngest asked for an ocean noises CD for her 9th birthday - my little zen child. I love to listen too. Beats the hell out of the pomeranians next door.

"Exploring Fiscal Moderation..." I like that concept. So what's the first step? First you have to find and example of same so you can see what it looks like, right? And what if there ARE no role models out there (myself definitely excluded from that category). Certainly you could then check out a book from the library on it (the epitome itself of fiscal mod). But how eggzactly does one put it into play. Or take oneself out of the non-moderation play? Please, oh Please, do give updates when you find out the mysteries of this important subject.
