Money, money, money, money...

MON-EY. (you know, that song from The Apprentice).

You know how paychecks say they are void after 90 days? I guess I always thought that the money went back to the company -- but I found out that it has to go to the state, and that it stays there for a LONG time. If you're wondering whether you have any unclaimed checks out there, you can search the Missing Money site for unclaimed property across the states, or you can visit each state's site. Minnesota's is here.

And there's a LOT out there! As of 2004, there was over $184 million in unclaimed property, $50 million of it from 2004 alone. That's crazy! People!! Cash your checks!

Hi Kat, this is a complete change of subject from your post but I wanted to ask: may I introduce you to my novel? If you like any of C.S.Lewis, Tolkien, that general genre, you might like "Outcasts Of Skagaray" or at least think it worth telling others about. There are strong characters of both genders; action and suspense without violence. But judge for yourself. For a free preview, go to www.threeswans.com.au and see the sample chapters there.
I would love it if you read and enjoyed it, but in any event I wish you well. Reading your post, I was glad of your compliment to teachers. I used to be one. My blog is http://threeswans.blogspot.com if you want to drop by.
