President Obama

"For too many of us, it's become safer to retreat into our own bubbles, whether in our neighborhoods or on college campuses, or places of worship, or especially our social media feeds, surrounded by people who look like us and share the same political outlook and never challenge our assumptions.

Online Investment Advice

There are things we all do but shouldn't when it comes to seeking advice and/or information online. The two biggest areas that I think should be avoided or at least done with great care are medical issues and financial issues.

If this person would show me how to divide my dollar as (...)

2012 KZ Sportsmen 19SBT

After our Thor Wanderer was destroyed by a hail storm we had to find a replacement trailer and opted for another hybrid, this time we went much newer with a 2012 KZ Sportsmen 19SBT. It was hardly used when we bought it and have had nothing but good luck with it so far.

Origins of Sayings

Donut Hole - The hole-in-the-middle doughnut was invented in 1847 when a sea captain's mother deep-fried dough that often remained undercooked in the middle. To solve this problem she put hazelnuts or walnuts in the center (dough-NUT). The captain didn't like the nuts so he poked them out leaving a whole in the middle.

Birthday Parties - The tradition of birthday parties started in Europe a long time ago. It was feared that evil spirits were particularly attracted to people on their (...)

Selfies

“Hold everything, I want to take a selfie.” Good grief!

The selfie movement is a huge part of social media. It’s dinner time, hold everything? I need a picture! Bought some new shoes? Hold everything! I want to take a picture a them on! Your kids first report card? Show it to the world with you proudly holding it. Apparently anything you do at any given time deserves some variation of selfie. Reality check - nobody cares.

While this is touted as “new (...)
