Two cups of coffee and I’m still yawning like I could swallow a skyscraper…. šŸ˜ Some days, it just ain’t kicking in…. We’ve been home a week now from the vacation, and I’m still adjusting to “normal” life. I must be getting older– it now takes one week to GO on vacation and an additional […]

When visiting Blue Mountain Lake, NY, last week, we visited the Adirondack Museum, one of the largest museums in Upstate New York. It took us two days to get through! There, we learned just about everything there is to know about the Adirondack Park region. The museum had a section dedicated to Lake Placid, a […]

My daughter got a call on her cell phone the other day. We are very cautious about answering calls because we get so many telemarketers and wrong numbers. If she does not recognize the number she does not answer the call. Usually, the callers have phone numbers like 769-0 (a true telemarketer number). The number […]

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. How much do you pay for cell phone service, if you don’t mind disclosing. I’m on one of the “big box” major cell phone carriers, and I pay about $85 a month, for two lines […]

It’s good to be back home, although I say that with mixed feelings. We spent a week in the Adirondack Mountains and IT WAS INCREDIBLE. If I could buy property up there, I SO would. I have never met anyone who visited the Adirondacks and didn’t gush and gush about how wonderful it is there. […]

Comments Off on Paycheck to Paycheck?

Boy, sometimes I read the news and I get the heebie jeebies. It’s getting scary out there! I try not to think about it, but the government and their hooligans are doing an awful great job wrecking the economy and the retirement savings of our older folks in this country.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of MyReviewsNow.net for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I do a ton of shopping online. As a matter of fact, if Amazon and other online vendors sold milk and gasoline online, I’d never go to a retail store again! šŸ˜€ For one, I just […]

Is it sacrilegious to poke the Pope on Facebook? Is it sacrilegious that the Pope is ON Facebook?! The Catholic Pope, Joseph Ratzinger, is on Facebook. Surprisingly, he only has 9,397 friends. I thought he’d have a lot more. ….and looking a little closer… is that REALLY the REAL Pope’s Facebook page? It says “public […]
