Periodically, I’m going to post about some service I use and enjoy.  Usually with an affiliate link.  I assure you that if I’m posting about it here, then I like it and not just trying to foist some crappy service on you just to make $5. Love with Food is one such service.   I’ve been getting it for over a year now, and it has all the things I love about subscriptions.  It’s a bit random.  It’s something I’ll enjoy.  It’s something the rest of the family will enjoy or have fun with.  It actually helps others. Each month you get a box withRead More →

If you’ve spent any time following me or talking to me, you know I love a good deal.  Freebies.  Giveaways.  Samples.  Coupons.  All that stuff, and I’m going to be posting these things here for you to enjoy as well.  Which brings me to something I haven’t seen before.  Free Stocks!  I just got mine, from CUZ for Cousins Properties.  Valued at $8.40.   Free-ish.  You do have to sign up and give them some personal information, including your SOC, and hooking up a bank account. But there are no fees above that.  I still have yet to play the market by buying stock fromRead More →

I’m working on a new podcast.   And I’m going to take my on advice.  Talk about what you know, and what you are passionate about.  Well, That would be Podcasting.  I’ve been doing it for over 10 years now.  Good shows, bad shows.  Learned so much, the hard way.  I really feel as though I have a ton of information to share, and I want to share it.

Less than 2 years ago, my niece Julia who was 13 at the time, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at Children’s Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama.  And through all the hardships this brings, injections, preplanning EVERYTHING and having to grow up much faster than anyone should, she’s held her head high, managing this disease with grace, strength, and courage. On April 22nd, I’ll be walking with Julias’ Heroes in the JDRF – One Walk team.  Through JDRF we are hoping to help find a cure and other advances to make living with T1D easier to some degree.  If you are local to Huntsville, AL, IRead More →
