Websites Reviewing Colleges

websites reviewing colleges

Our kids are growing up so fast. I can’t even believe that we’re already going to have a freshman in High School next year. That doesn’t seem possible. Our kids are already talking about what they want to do for College, which College they want to attend, if they want to go online or attend […]

A ‘Cooler’ Basketball Halftime

Guest Post by John Giusti Jon, Joe, and I played our routine game of “21” on Joe’s lowered basketball hoop, perfectly designed to allow us to easily make superior dunks on one another. It seemed like every day of every summer from sixth to tenth grade went just about the same way, though we were […]

Virtual Christmas Shopping

Virtual Christmas Shopping Guest post by John Giusti I didn’t really want to make trips out to the stores this year, at least not as many as I had in previous years around the holiday season. Stores are always crammed with customers, there is a lack of employees available to assist me, and the promise […]

It’s been awhile since I have been in college so when I took a college course a few years back it was like digging through the cobwebs trying to come up with enough knowledge to figure things out. Plus I feel like things change and if you don’t keep current, you’re lost. Especially in writing […]

Storage Solutions

Is Your Eyesite Failing? Need Eyeglasses or Contacts?

It seems, every year I go to my routine eye appointment and wait for the doctor to tell me that it’s time. The time that I finally hit that age where I need glasses. I’ve been lucky so far. My doctor says that I’m still on the border line but I should be good for […]

Do you have a Savings Account?

My savings account balance has never been very large. It seems like I always need the money for something. So instead of saving and pulling it out when we need it, we just spend it as we need it. Probably not a very smart thing to do. I think having a savings account that you […]
