Halloween and Diversification

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. Yes I enjoyed dressing up in various costumes as a kid, but really…it was all about the candy. Everyone in my house loved candy, and this was the one day that you hit payday. All you needed was some stamina, a pillowcase and a group of friends. […]

WAZE...an app that saves you time and maybe tickets!

WAZE…an app that saves you time and maybe tickets!

Before I discuss the benefits of the wonderful free app called Waze, I would like to make a disclaimer that I am a bit technologically challenged. I do not have many apps on my phone and find the concept to be a bit overwhelming. However, Waze is a wonderful tool to use when driving, especially […]
