If you’ve ever booked a room with Hotels.com, Flexo has some news… credit card numbers and names of 234,000 customers were stolen  from an Ernst & Young employee (they were on a password protected laptop) in February. I want to know why the E&Y employee even had credit card numbers on the PC in the first place, is it necessary? No.
MBH is the latest to talk about Prosper.com .
FMF discusses some energy saving tips  as well as how much the average person spends on what in terms of energy. I recently implemented his last tip – “Substitute compact fluorescent bulbs for incandescents” with positive results .
Nickel talks about the drop in fuel mileage  with the recent implementation of E85 ethanol blended gasoline. While a little is expected, 1-2%, some have experienced 20% drops!
JLP’s question of the day is “How Many Times Do You Eat Out Each Month? “
LAMoneyGuy reviews some stock market adages , I hadn’t heard some of these before.
JD starts an interesting discussion about organic produce  and how some people don’t have the option of choosing, based on their own belief system, what types of food they buy.
