You may be asking yourself, why in the world would someone blog or even try to write about banking? The truth is, I feel like it needs to be done. I have over 15 years of banking experience and some of the questions or concerns never seem to go away.
Most people only think about their bank accounts when their is an emergency or they just need some extra cash. Other than that we really don't think about our bank accounts. However, this is something I think a lot of Americans need to think… Continue

In the 1860's, the Supreme Court ruled that the tomato is a vegetable, for tariff purposes...Botanically, the tomato is considered a fruit because the edible part contains the seeds, while the vegetable parts are the edible stems, leaves and plant roots...Amazingly, tomatoes can be grown in just about every type of climate/type of soil and if you have a green thumb, just one plant can produce on average 15… Continue

I recently changed my newsletter delivery system from icontact to Mailchimp. I was paying $10.00 per month for a service that seemed a little hard to navigate. I now have a FREE system that seems much easier to navigate and looks exactly how I want it. You can check out my latest newsletter… Continue

Watermelons are 92% water so when purchasing make sure it's heavy...To test for ripeness, snap your thumb and third finger against the melon...A "high" tone means the melon is not ripe...A "low" deep tone, the melon should be sweet and ready to eat...The exterior of the watermelon should be a smooth, waxy green, with or without stripes and free from dents, cuts and bruises...Lastly, look for a pale yellow (a… Continue

I was on my way to my favorite "Scratch and Dent" store. You'll never know what you might find there. Nearby, I saw a woman trimming some bushes on a 7-11 lot. It was about 10:00 a.m. and it was already hot. A sunny, very warm day was in store and this woman was hard at work.

Teaching kids the proper use of money is not an easy task but it is essential for us parents. We need to give our kids every opportunity to learn proper money management so they can transfer their learning into adulthood.
This post is one I am probably the most proud of. I asked my 13 year old daughter to speak to people about money from a teenager's perspective. If you could speak to other teenagers about what you know, what would you tell them? This is what she came up with....… Continue

Blueberries, called Star Berries by the Native Americans, should be firm and brightly colored from light to dark...When using blueberries in a recipe (muffins, pancakes, etc) make sure the batter is thick. Berries added to a thin batter will simply sink to the bottom...Blueberries are naturally blue in color, low in fat, sodium and calories and the pale powder like coating on the skin is called… Continue

You may have to burn the candles at both ends as you create work you love. When you are working hard it may take more time and energy than you usually expend. Mornings are marvelous when you awake feeling refreshed and alert. When you wake up feeling like something the cat dragged in----that's not so good.
Use these tips for a good… Continue

So now we know the strength in Family, and that we are powerful beyond measure. So next is, be happy! My sis-in-love wrote a great post on it in her blog, Everyday Experiments
. A short quote from it:
Happiness is power. Happiness is carbonated consciousness. It wants to spill out and radiate and be articulated. And every time we downplay our joy we confuse our synapses. Our brain… Continue

Choosing a ripe cantaloupe depends on individual preferences...The melon should be round, smooth and have a depressed scar at the stem end...Make sure that the entire melon is not soft, only the stem area...The netting of the cantaloupe should be an even, yellow color and have a strong, sweet aroma...The melon will ripen if left a room temperature but will not continue to ripen under refrigeration...Whole melons… Continue

For those of you reading my blog for the first time, I'll do a little bit of intro.
I got suspended from my job for sleeping on duty, a little about two months now and how I am on a cross road as to what I should do. So I posted a discussion titled: "Should I jump off the cliff?" (You can check it out to get a heads up on this blog).
As this drag goes on in the office, I tried to lean on the only lady in my life but she was no where to be found. Instead she… Continue

It is a wonderful sound to hear – The steady, confident voice that flows from the mouth of someone who’s spirit has been lifted; one who is learning to view herself through an un-cracked lens.

One of my friends is a clown. No, really, that's the work she loves. I've known her for a long time. She just landed a contract to "clown around" at one of the local home improvement stores on Saturday mornings! Wow, what a great way to meet families. I don't know if she wears a red nose, and floppy shoes, but she clowns none-the-less. …

Let's face it...the economy hasn't bounced completely back yet. Families are still struggling financially and need to do more with less. Your dollar needs to stretch a bit further than perhaps it had to before. Even if we are doing okay financially, it is still good to re look at our budget and see where… Continue

This one confuses me. Can't you tell if you leave your mouth open? Mine gets kind of dry and I just feel dumb doing it. Still, I see it all the time on job sites. Please, put a piece of gum in there if you need to. Anything is better than waiting for a bug to land on your…
