Exercise, Even If You Do Not Want To

UNITED STATES—Oh, exercise, I am certain it is something so many of us hate doing, but let’s face it, in order to stay healthy, we have to do it. For me, it is indeed a big chore. It is not because I don’t want to do it; it is because my day is so busy, that I get exhausted....

Saving Money By Cooking Instead Of Dining Out

UNITED STATES—I told myself for 2024 my goal was to cook more at home and less dining out. Why? It makes a significant difference in the wallet and the bank account. Yes, inflation has caused all sorts of chaos for Americans when it comes to spending money ESPECIALLY when it comes to food and groceries. Truth be told a...

Winter Blues

UNITED STATES—Winter is here people, and the blues are starting to set in. So many people call this time of year somewhat depressing, and I can understand why. In some parts of the country, it is brutally cold, and I mean brutally cold, so much to the point that if you’re outside more than 30 minutes, frostbite will set...

The Legacy Of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

UNITED STATES—For so many people, Monday, January 15, 2024, was another day off for people who work for the federal, state or local governments, in addition to those kiddos who didn’t have to go to school. However, the reality of the situation is that the federal holiday honors the late great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This man is...

Tax Season Is About To Begin America

UNITED STATES—Are you ready? Yes, tax season officially kicks off January 29, but you can perhaps submit your return earlier via federal e-filing even though the IRS won’t accept them until the 29th of the month. However, this is the time to start gathering up those documents and ensure you have all your paperwork in order so that when...

Hopeful For 2024

UNITED STATES—I don’t know what it is about this upcoming New Year that has delivered a ton of hope and positivity to my orbit. With most New Year’s, they seem to come and go for me, however, I feel quite different about 2024. There is a level of hope and positivity that I just have for the year that...

The Solace Of Gift Wrapping

UNITED STATES—It was a debate that I have been having with family members for the past few weeks. Is it better to wrap a gift or place it into a bag? For years, I would take any gifts I purchased for the holiday season, group them up and on Christmas Eve evening after work, I would wrap everything and...

Christmas Is About Giving Not Receiving

UNITED STATES—We are in that time of year, where the spending is at its peak. The thing people should be aware of that Christmas is about giving not receiving. It is something I think so many people forget more than they should. I recall as a kid when I got my obligatory funding from my parents for Christmas that...

Do You Wrap Or Bag Presents?

UNITED STATES—It was no argument 10 to 15 years ago, I would easily wrap all my Christmas gifts, but within the past 2-3 years, I have swapped wrapping gifts for bagging them. Why? Bagging a gift is just so much easier. To be honest, time seriously got the best of me in recent years, and I was put into...

The Black Friday Experience

UNITED STATES—It has been tradition for my family that we shop the day after Thanksgiving for as long as I can recall. The past few years have been slightly different because I’ve had to work my day job. This year the family went out on Saturday instead of Friday, and I must say the older I get the more...
