I Can't Believe I Haven't Gotten Rid Of My Landline Yet

I Can't Believe I Haven't Gotten Rid Of My Landline Yet
For someone who has run a website business for 15 years I’m pretty slow to adapt to technology.  I’m not personally on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram or anything else.  I like my privacy.  I still have a land line and only half the calls I make on it are to find my missing cell... Read more »

"Free" Trip On American Airlines Cost Me $1,366.52
  My wife and I just booked a trip to London for my in-laws because they are awesome, have never been and I have a ton of American Airlines miles. Any time I’ve booked a flight using miles or points I have expected to pay some taxes and a security fee.  I know that when... Read more »

These Presidential Candidates Are The Breakfast Club (And That's Not A Compliment)

These Presidential Candidates Are The Breakfast Club (And That's Not A Compliment)
Having decided a few years ago to remove as much negative energy as I can from my life, I don’t follow the Presidential election too closely.  I’m not going to campaign for anyone and my vote means nothing so it’s not worth getting all riled up over.
