My very sincere intention is to do a new post to my blog every Sunday morning. Of course, 'sincere intention' doesn't always translate to reality. :redface: http://samanthagentry.blogspot.com

I'll add a note on this thread when I have a new blog posted.

"They" say the only two unavoidable things are death and taxes. Well, it's tax time again. And it isn't just the IRS that's expecting income tax money from us. Most states also have state income tax and many of those states have some pretty peculiar ways of getting those tax dollars. Check out my blog this week for a look at 10 Strangest Ways That States Tax You.

Cinco de Mayo--it literally translates to the fifth of May. An official holiday in Mexico and one celebrated in the U.S. by large Mexican-American populations in most states. And, like St. Patrick's Day, a holiday where people from all ethnic backgrounds participate in the festivities. Check out my blog this week for a look at the history of the Cinco de Mayo holiday. http://samanthagentry.blogspot.com (http://samanthagentry.blogspot.com/)

WEEK OF MAY 17, 2015
The spy seems to be one of the staples of war, whether it's countries engaged in physical battle or the cold war. Over the decades, movies and television have often glamorized the image of the spy by showing him (and her) as the elegant sophisticated and handsome (or beautiful) persona who can kick butt while holding a martini glass without spilling a drop. In reality, spies are usually the nameless faceless men and women who daily risk their lives in service of their country. Check out my blog this week for a look at 10 Spies You've Probably Never Heard Of.

Spies are certainly not limited to the dashing, mysterious man stereotyped as James Bond. During the U.S. Civil War the very notion of a genteel Southern lady actually being a spy was simply an unthinkable concept. Wars over the decades...even centuries...have successfully used female spies. Check out my blog this week for for a look at 11 Famous Female Spies from History. http://samanthagentry.blogspot.com (http://samanthagentry.blogspot.com/)

There have been single events and at other times the actions of one person at a specific time that have literally changed the course of history.

Frivolous lawsuits...it seems that every time we turn around we're seeing another ridiculous lawsuit someone has filed, usually against a company (with deep pockets) rather than an individual. And they seem to be getting more and more ludicrous. Check out my blog this week for a look at some frivolous lawsuits too ludicrous for words. http://samanthagentry.blogspot.com (http://samanthagentry.blogspot.com/)

I think of doing a resume when job hunting to be similar to writing a synopsis of your story before writing the manuscript...a dreaded task that no one wants to do but it's necessary. Your resume needs to sell a prospective employer on you as a potentially valuable employee. Check out my blog this week for a list of 5 Things You Should Never Put On Your Resume. http://samanthagentry.blogspot.com (http://samanthagentry.blogspot.com/)
