Have you noticed lately the ridiculous amount of people who are going back to school to get their masters degrees? It’s unprecedented as far as I’m concerned. I’ve had my good job for over a decade now, and I’m not about to move out of it. God forbid I’d have to go looking for [...]
My hubby and I are going through one of those difficult financial periods where it seems like the odds are stacked against us and our financial karma. We had a whopper tax bill (actually two since our last years last bill and this year’s first bill were due the same day), had a major [...]
I’ve been listening a lot to this CD I bought for a really good price about two years ago that is basically a conversation with the founder of Whole Foods John Mackey. As you know, Whole Foods is a huge franchise now.
