Waiting

I'm waiting.  Just waiting.  Waiting for a warm Nashville spring day.  So far, not much.  I'm waiting to walk/jog at 6:30am without sweats and a heavy coat.  I want to get out in the yard and kick the ground around a little.  Getting new mulch is a dream at this point.  What's up this year?  Tom Petty was right.  "The waiting is the hardest part". 

How Much Is This Going To Cost Me?

Another right of passage is happening in my family.  My daughter, Ellie, is in the college selection process.  We have been taking campus tours.  I even made it through one tour without checking out the campus radio station.  Personally, I think it's never a bad day when you're on a college campus.  To me it's exhilarating, gives me hope for the future.  I always learn something when I'm on campus, usually from people much younger than me.  Ellie is just coming to grips with all the things to consider.  Might be Hotty To

The weirdest commercial on TV

Is it me or is the freecreditreport.com commercial really weird?  Have you seen it?  Credit scores are treated as animals, complete with fur.  You'll see a woman petting a high credit score like a dog or cat.  Then, you'll see a "credit report control officer"(?) tracking down a low credit score, trying to herd it into the back of a truck!  Well, it creates talk if nothing else.  And, it made me remember the product, which is the mark of an effective ad campaign.  Still, it's very strange.    &nbs
