• Wellness: Your back will love this savings plan

When my purse feels like it is full of rocks, it is good reminder to empty my change purse. Today I decided to weigh the change just out of curiosity and was astonished to see how much it weighed.

The truth is spiders are one of the most beneficial creatures on the planet. Still, it pays to be cautious especially when poking around in the woodpile for a log for the fireplace.

Not so Jack Smith, Jeff French, and Mike Philbin. “We were looking for something to do,” Smith said with a smile, “instead of getting a real job. So, we decided to skateboard across the country.”
