    Well, it's an economic stimulus check, so I guess the "best" way to use it would be to spend it

    Mine is already spent -- doing a lot of "upgrades" to the house. My check won't even cover the fence we're installing

    Tell me about it. We're looking at installing a retaining wall and fencing in the back yard. Never knew just how expensive these things can be until the quotes started rolling in.

    Cool
    In case you have not seen this:

    As you may have heard, the Bush Administration said each of us would
    get a rebate check to stimulate the economy.


    If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China.

    If we spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs,

    if we purchase a computer it will go to India,

    if we purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico,Honduras, and

    Guatemala,

    if we purchase a good car it will go to Japan,

    if we purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan and none of it will
    help the American economy.

    We need to keep that money here in America.

    The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it at yard
    sales, since those are the only businesses still in the United States.
