House


Hey everyone, this post was supposed to be on Friday, but I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things with posting again. Also, my wife recently celebrated her birthday so we went out for a nice dinner on Friday night. Long story short, this post is today instead of Friday. Baby steps. Mr. and Mrs. Fix-It?

They may even throw in this quote: “Buy land, they’re not making it anymore.” – Mark Twain They will extol the virtues of passive income and downplay any issues they may have […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today is going to be a short post about “Time to Refinance?” Time to Refinance? In case you guys don’t know, interest rates have continued to decrease the last few years. This has affected both student loan refinancing and home mortgage refinancing.

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. This is just going to be a short post about my adventures in “Gardening”. Gardening? Yea. So, if you know me, I’m not really into gardening. I can’t really tell the difference between plants and in general I don’t like maintaining my landscape. For this reason I have gardeners and landscapers to do my maintenance for me. However, we recently decided to pull out a planter from our front […]
