Re: Dave Ramsey's voice is in my head...

Assuming your student loan rate is fairly low...I would attack your lowest loan, which is the 10K car loan. Pay as much as your can toward knowcking that off of your list. Then, Do the same with the next lowest loan.

How do you filter your water?

I recently had a water guy over at the house extolling the virtues of a reverse osmosis water system. $5000 later....I currently use a Pur pitcher. Have an under-the-counter unit, Don't like the taste and hate changing it. Read about Berkey filters, not sure if they are much better. Just wondering.

Re: [Eating] Fish

You should be very careful with fish. Farm raised fish is the latest craze. Salmon, Catfish, and Tilapia are raised in cages, fed corn, which they do not eat in the wild, and live in their own excrement. I would try to opt for wild seafood.
