Gathering with friends and family, because they may not be there in the future. These are the memories that get you through tough times and give you a smile when you think back.


Next week's question:

With the downturn in the economy, most people have had to economize in some way. What have you decided to do without to save money?

o Restaurant meals.

o Sightseeing and road trips.

o Fitness club memberships.

o Clothes shopping.

o Expensive groceries.

o Nothing. What's the use of working if you can't spend some of the money you make on frivolous items?
