Good Afternoon

My current project involves finding dates relative to a "certain" date itself.  Can you all suggest if there is a method to help me produce the desired
result.  Here is what I am looking for:

FirstOfMonth - Date of the first day of current month
LastOfMonth - Date of the last day of current month
FirstOfLastMonth - Date of the first day of previous month
LastOfLastMonth - Date of the last day of previous month
FirstOfYear - Date of first day of the year
LastOfYear - Date of last day of the year
CurrentWeekMonday - Date of Monday of the current week(If it is Sunday then tommorrow, else today or last Monday.)
CurrentWeekFriday - Date of Friday of the current week(Future Friday unless today is Fri or Sat)
LastWeekMonday - Date of Monday of previous week(If it is Sunday then 6 days ago, else the last week's Monday at least 7 days ago)
LatWeekFriday - Date of Friday of previous week(Previous Friday 2 to 8 days ago)

Thanks for the help,
Ed

   Function FirstOfMonth() As DateTime
        Return New DateTime(Now().Year, Now.Month, 1)
    End Function

    Function LastOfMonth() As DateTime
        Return New DateTime(Now().AddMonths(1).Year, Now().AddMonths(1).Month, 1).AddDays(-1)
    End Function

    Function FirstOfLastMonth() As DateTime
        Return New DateTime(Now().AddMonths(-1).Year, Now().AddMonths(-1).Month, 1)
    End Function

    Function LastOfLastMonth() As DateTime
        Return FirstOfLastMonth().AddDays(-1)
    End Function

I hope you can continue this.
