So yesterday I went to the gas station to fill up my bike with my last $20 and found a $20 in the ATM. I don't like taking anything that is not mine, so I turned it in to the cashier. I was a little skeptical that she wouldn't just keep it, but after a very good interaction with her I was yeah she won't take I live about 30 min from said gas station so I told her that I probably...

It wasn't long after the "For Sale" sign went up on our front yard that they started arriving in our mailbox; postcards. Each one asked to provide service for our impending move. As I sorted through the array of cards, I selected three and called the first number. A man answered the phone and stated that he would be happy to come out and give me a free estimate. He explained that he was planning...

I see lots of comments about the intelligence of dolphins. I'll share a personal story of how amazingly smart these creatures are. I was on vacation in Cuba a few years back and during an afternoon my family and I went to a dolphin cove where you could have lunch and swim with dolphins. Now my expectations were quite mid level/low for this, I've never been a fan of captive animals so I...

As soon as we walked through the door Sweetie grabbed my daughter’s new tennis shoe in her mouth and started prancing proudly down the hall with her new chew toy. I took a moment to laugh before snatching the shoe back and putting Sweetie in her crate with the four chew toys we had already bought...

When I was a boy growing up I can not once ever remember either my Mom or my Nana wasting food. Anything we didn’t eat at one meal was saved, stored, and served as leftovers later on. I can remember my Nana making a huge pot of brown beans with a large cake of cornbread. We would all eat until we were stuffed but there was always about half of the beans left over. A few days later Nana would take those...

After watching my son Todd run in a race, I made my usual comment, "Todd, I could walk faster than those women run." Todd laughed as he knew I wasn't a runner. "Listen, Mom, I want you to put your money where your mouth is. How about you run with me next year at this race?" Without thinking, I quickly agreed to this challenge.
