Wonderful info that you've furnished people in this post. I am going to look forward to a person's subsequently publish.


Two old ladies were outside their nursing home, having a smoke when it started to rain. One of the ladies pulled out a condom, cut off the end, put it over her cigarette and continued smoking.

Lady 1: What's that?
Lady 2: A condom. This way my cigarette doesn't get wet.
Lady 1: Where did you get it?
Lady 2: You can get them at any drugstore.

The next day ... Lady 1 hobbles herself into the local drugstore and announces to the pharmacist that she wants a box of condoms. The guy looks at her kind of strangely (she is, after all, over 80 years of age), but politely asks what brand she prefers.

Lady 1: It doesn't matter as long as it fits a Camel.

Love your site... I was just worried about this exact topic. I have a little nest egg in my 401(k) that I need to roll over from my previous employer. A friend (should we ever listen to financial advice from friends) suggested taking it to someone else to manage a little better rather than just putting it into my company program.

Any thoughts on this?

Zopa originated in the UK and is now moving into the Bay Area where Prosper launched just a few months ago. Their models differ slightly, but the idea is best summed up as eBay for lenders and borrowers.

It's certainly more "myspace" than "Chuck", but a recent Online Banking Report study sees the potential there for a billion-dollar industry in the US within five years.
