Lake Fred

Lake Fred is an actual lake located in the flat pinelands of southern New Jersey. It is also one of my knicknames acquired while I was at college. There is (or was) a Lake Fred Folk Festival in the springtime.

How to Avoid Poverty

I have heard that the way to avoid poverty is to do a small number of things in a specific order. First one should graduate from high school. Next one should get a steady job. At this point it is not important to worry about how much one is being paid. One must first establish a good work ethic. Monetary improvement will come naturally with a good work ethic. Next one should not have (or create) children before marriage. Married people are less likely to be in poverty, so the next step is to get married and stay married to the same person. If you do these things in the proper order you will most likely avoid poverty in your lifetime.
