    Credit Reports

    Starting yesterday (March 1, 2005) those of us living in the Mitten State and other midwestern state were allowed to get a FREE copy of our credit report.

    Last night I downloaded mine and found that there was an error in one of my previous addresses .

    I thought this was a pretty important thing to check into given the recent increase in identity theft and all. So I am passing the info on to you.

    At the present time only those living in West and the Upper Midwest States are allowed to get these reports. For you folks in the south (Texas and east) and the Northeast (VA and north) you will have to wait.


    Go to this website annual credit report . com to get your free copy.

    I order copies of all 3 every July and its amazing what you can find wrong and how that causes you problems. I spent months trying to get stuff fixed this past year.

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    I tried yesterday, but my computer locked up. So I am going to try again this weekend once things slow down on the websites.

    Unfortunately the stuff that causes me problems is not wrong.
