  •  On Oct. 26, a woman named Terri married the man of her dreams, and on Nov. 12, her new husband, Mike, went in for surgery for a lump on his jaw and had 9/10 of his tongue removed.

    Mike is dying from oral cancer, slowly and painfully.

    I’ve been following their saga on Facebook. It is both incredibly sad and filled with sweetness and an ultimate happily-ever-after ending.

    Here are some of Terri’s most recent Facebook posts:

  •  Many households experienced a 2 percent decline in take-home pay in January as the employee portion of Social Security taxes returned to 2010 levels. Combined with fluctuating prices for different goods and services, this reduction in take-home pay might have you feeling more stretched at the end of the month than usual. Spending plans are a key tool to help families balance their income and expenses on a monthly basis.
