The new year is here. It is time to go back to work, take down the tree, and put away all the Christmas presents. Well…maybe not all of the Christmas presents. Did Aunt Frieda give you a pair of Uncle Freddie’s unused golf ball-shaped gold cufflinks? Did Cousin Sarah knit you a pair of socks better suited to a toddler than your grown-up-sized tootsies? Did you receive a gift card to a restaurant that’s closest location is 200 miles away? What do you do with all of these unusable or undesirable gifts? You don’t want to “look a gift horse the mouth,” but you certainly want to make the best of this sad situation. Here are some tips on how to deal with those gifts you’d rather not keep.
That is the basic definition. The algorithm gets a bit more complicated. Let’s say your website has a link pointing to it from the NY Times. We have all heard of the NY Times. It is the most read newspaper in the country, and their website receives literally millions of page hits a day. In the Google algorithm not all links are created equal. Each link is given a weight value or the value of the page that it sits on. So for instance in our example above, the NY Times website has a Google page rank of 9. The highest your site can be is a 10 and the lowest is a 0. So as you can see with a Google page rank of 9, Google looks very favorable upon the NY Times.
When doing a Classic restoration at home or in the garage there is a world of information and choices that one can choose from. The very first choice should be what type of car to restore.

Cut out a small cloud from white construction paper and glue it on an empty space on the St. Patrick’s Day card. Write a St. Patrick’s Day greeting on the front of the card and inscribe a personal message on the inside.
Busby: To be quite frank, it makes no sense to have only one Western team in the WPS. It’s not only difficult for us, but also the East Coast teams wouldn’t want that to occur. It’s about exploring the opportunities for growing the Western Conference again and not just Vancouver per se, but also other teams that might be interested. It’s an ongoing discussion in terms of what everyone can do to grow the game and for those who are interested in playing at the highest level, which we are.
Busby: Right now we have a U-18 full-time program comprised mostly of grade 11 and 12 with the occasional grade 10. The program is fully-funded by the club, so they don’t pay any fees except for traveling to showcase tournaments. The four-five times a week that they train is all subsidized by the club.
Now let me simplify for you. In the bond funds vs. stock funds debate do not assume that the former are the best mutual funds, or your safer or best investment for 2013, 2014, and beyond. Frankly, I’m not alone in my viewpoint: America and much of the world is anemic and drowning in debt. We can’t artificially keep interest rates at ridiculously low levels forever. When the lid comes off and interest rates blast off: bond funds will not be the best mutual funds and will not be your best investment. Take a look at specialty equity funds that specialize in areas like gold, real estate and natural resources like oil. If IT hits the fan, these could be the best mutual funds.
