    Cut Them All Up Years Ago.

    It is almost unheard of in the company I keep. I am often looked at as if the cat dragged me in from outside when I tell people I do not have a credit card. "They often ask: How on earth do you manage to travel so extensively, maintain your lifestyle, or even conduct business...
