Mom…..I just heard of a new bartering system called a “Time Bank” or “Hour Bank”.  (You may know all about this already). One has started in my area and there are many more around the country (in at least 42 states). Below is a link to West Sound Time Bank’s web page.  At the very bottom of the page be sure to click on the youtube piece about the  “Hour Bank” in Portland, ME.  It’s an excerpt from a nightly network news profile and explains it very well.  Intriguing!
