Did you know that prior to 1869, the periodic table didn't exist? Me either. I'm just enough of a science geek that I find how it was developed to be extremely interesting. Sixty years before the table was developed, scientists were aware of about 47 elements. By...

I’d Even Flip Burgers, If I Had To

It's been awhile since I've written anything on this blog. Primarily that's because I've been busting my tail, trying to get my feet back underneath me financially speaking. You see, I'm not always a good decision maker when it comes to money. And even though I have...

My oldest son is four months away from being seventeen. He reminded me of that this morning. This is madness to me. How did the last seventeen years pass by so quickly? I vividly remember the day he was born. I was induced at 7am, but by 7pm, my baby was still in my...
