When I was in high school, I asked my parents if they had started a college fund for me when I was born. I had heard of these from my (well-off) friends. My parents laughed. Hard. Now that I’m a parent, I know why they were laughing – finding money to [...]
Some of us are lucky enough to have a certified technician and IT person living in house. (ahem)
For other folks, there are a few options. You can call in a bunch of favors to friends, or you can find a company that offers on-site service for homes and residences.

I found myself in need of a new web hosting suddenly in late November. The person who had been hosting my sites until that point went AWOL, and I have yet to hear from him. I needed to get my sites up and running quickly, and I needed to find a good web [...]
I love taking part in NoBloShoeMo, or November Blogging Shoe month. However, by the time November is done, I am deep in shoe lust. I spend far too much time longing for wonderfully warm books like my daughters… However, the holidays are over and my birthday is coming up (in 2 [...]

I get easily intimidated, though, by the many different reservation and “cheap rate” websites out there – I find them [...]
My family has been enjoying the TV shows available on iTunes for a long time now, and so we were intrigued to hear about Amazon Unbox and the new option of watching movies online from Netflix.com.
However, when I looked at the system requirements for both, they both require a Windows PC. I use a [...]
I did a PayPerPost entry about Pingo calling cards at one point, and as a result I ended up with one for free. This post is NOT sponsored, though I would receive a bit of income if people click the links. After trying out Pingo, there is very little I dislike. In [...]
If you are one of the few people who haven’t signed up for Netflix yet, let me tell you a story…
