...give credit where credit is due

At this time of year, many people feel the stress brought on by many demands. Social gatherings, extra errands and lots of retail pressures telling you to buy, buy, buy. Don't fall for it tho', if it isn't in your means. Homemade gifts, baked goods and a simple greeting card should be more than enough to show your love and/or appreciation at this thoughtful time of year. Just because you have a credit card or two doesn't mean that you have to max it out. That statement will arrive in late January, after the pretty wrappings and lights have all but disappeared. Speaking of credit, on this day in 1932 German-born Swiss physicist Albert Einstein was granted an American Visa. No doubt American Express, Discover and MasterCard followed in suit. Ironically, today's photo is available on my website. I accept every major credit card and PayPal. Happy Holidays! You don't have to be a Grinch, but please watch your bottom line. That also includes overindulging in sweets. Happy Hanukkah.
