1. Rybcezynski's "Weekend" explains how over time, the meaning of weekend has changed. Before it used to spelled as (week-end) and now has lost the hyphen. He mentions how the perspective of others about the beginning of the week. We learn that it's Sunday, but when you're asked, you respond that Monday is the first day. It all depends when you have work and school. An extra day off adds to your weekend which could make the first day of the week possibly Tuesday. Also, the activities that are done on these "weekends" have changed. Sundays were supposed to be a religious and relaxing day. A day where families meet and spend time together. Now it has all changed. Many work and do other things such as shopping.

2. In recents times, the weekend is no weekend. There is always work to be done. There really isn't a lot of time to catch up on lost hours of sleep and to be with your family. You may think of the weekend to have free time and leisure, however, many still have to work. For example, I'm unable to attend church on every Sunday because I work. I don't really see my family a lot and I'm loaded with homework. The only free time that I truly have is when I'm asleep. I get to relax and just chill. I'm not saying that I don't have fun and do things on the weekend, because I really do. Unfortunately though, it's not all about fun and "partying."

3. A perfect weekend in my eyes is hardly realistic. Saturdays would be the day that you spend time with your friends. You get to do all the things that you don't usually have time for. For example, go mini golfing or bowling. Right now due to the Halloween season, I really want to go to haunted houses. Then when Sunday comes around, I would like to go to church with my mom (if I'm actually up in time) and then get some food afterwards. I would just like to chill at home and maybe watch a movie and just lounge around my house. Ha....then I wake up. Too bad that I'm always scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays at work. I rarely go to church and I never get breakfast. I still go out with my friends but it's just not the same. If could plan my weekend, I wouldnt have to work on Sundays and I wouldn't work on Saturday nights. That's not the only thing that stops me though. Family events, such as weddings and birthday parties also puts a stop to my perfect weekend.

    Is this an undiscovered gem priced to go higher!!
    Please read the following Announcement in its Entirety and Consider the Possibilities�
    Watch this One to Trade!

    IFLH announces Senator David Cain has joined its Board of Directors!!

    IFLH volume trading is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement. The value of this
    stock appears poised for growth! This one should not remain on the ground floor for long.

    InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH - News) announced that they have added
    David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
    board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
    eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
    Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

    During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain�s
    efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
    Monthly Magazine�s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
    the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
    awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
    the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

    Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a
    widely recognized Senator join our board and oversee out automotive lending division. His
    affiliations and connections to the automotive industry will be invaluable to our company.
    Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
    Finance License.

    Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
    with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
    to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
    This dramatically helps a finance company�s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

    With the new GPS tracking systems being installed on every car to dramatically improve
    repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
    is ready to take their business to the next level.


    The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little known Companies
    That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens. This stock will not be a Secret for long.
    Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
