Pornography has had an extremely detrimental effect on society. It’s also disgusting. I’ve raised my kids to reject it, so we don’t have it on our computers. But I’m always afraid they will accidentally come across it on the web, so I have a filter installed. It’s a pretty good filter (and a free one!).

I don’t know about you, but I am one of those rare women who HATE shopping. The driving, the traffic, the pushy people, the heavy carts, and then– worst of all– the big bill at the checkout. I prefer to do as much as I can online. Shopping for school supplies has always been a […]
