Paralympic Problems
I've heard a lot of people express their disappointment regarding the conclusion of the Olympics. I totally understand, but let's get real, football is starting so that will ease the pain. For those who aren't football fans, the closing ceremonies can trigg...

Frugal Father
I get accused of being cheap quite regularly, but it isn't my fault. Really. I was raised by the penny-pinching master.  (Here is proof. Too cheap to buy goggles? No worries, just use a Ziploc bag.) My dad's distaste for spending money on unnecessary things...

How To Shake Hands In Texas

Emergency Exit Rejects
The past couple of weeks have been special. Two Sunday’s
ago, we were on our way to a baby blessing. Porter was driving and I was in the
passenger’s seat. I was looking up the address of the church building we needed

At It Again
Jack and Sally went out on the town this Halloween. Aside from scaring our niece, Mary, I would say it was a success. And now that Halloween is over, we can get to the good stuff. A
