So.... is anyone actually doing this? It falls on a Thursday and since I work for "corporate America" just me being at work spends money and makes money. And me phoning in sick to try and stop that would end up causing the company to spend more money on my salary for a job that isn't getting done. Wow, quite the pickle!

wouldnt that require paying off all debts (interest doesnt stop), canceling our internet connections/phone/cable/satelite/mortgages/rent/electric/gas and so on???? although technically we pay for most of this stuff once a month we will end up spending money on that day. you can correct me if im wrong

My question would be how is not spending any money one one day going to effect our religious leaders?Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!
