Jeff Carter ( was next talking about “inevitable inflation”. He explained why it was inevitable and what families could do to lessen the impact. Bottom Line: Prepare for much higher food prices (buy in bulk if you can) and, if your child is within a year or two of college, consider locking in tuition now.

Pastor Karl ( called in from Florida with a story that emerged from the one year anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti.

Bottom Line: It is only by turning toward God and others that you are able to discover your “new day”.
