Winterizing Week

This week has been what I like to call winterizing week. Last Saturday we put the jet skis away for the winter. Wednesday night I pulled the camper to storage after winterizing it. Yesterday the pool was closed. And hopefully the sprinklers will be blown out soon. These winters are starting to get complicated! As […]

Holly takes Rockstar competition

Congrats to Holly on winning the annual Bucks Rockstar singing contest last night. She has a great voice and I love listening to her sing. I wish I hadn’t forgotten my camera last night. Holly also got engaged recently. Congrats Holly! Technorati : Bucks, bar, music, singing, winner

Get yourself a router

Windows tip of the day: If you have a broadband internet connection (DSL, cable, etc), go down to your local Office Depot, Best Buy, or Staples and get yourself a wireless router. Even if you don’t need wireless. Why? Because those handy little wireless routers come with a firewall automatically configured. If you don’t need […]

Two supermarkets, that we know of, are offering delivery of your groceries for a nominal fee. The website where you order your groceries from is arranged like any other e-commerce web site. Some said this may take […]

8 Years of Google Mania

Recap of what they have accomplished: created a household name Google has been recognized as a verb (as in to google something) everyone involved in the beginning is now super rich their stock became a stock market […]

Free Checking?

I’m always amazed that I see financial institutions advertising free checking like it is an unheard of idea. Why would anyone pay for a checking account? I have 5 checking accounts (personal and business) at 4 different banks and they are all 100% free. A couple of them even earn a modest interest rate. No […]
