Putting my honesty up for review

I’m pretty chipper after my morning walk today. I was using my new wireless Bluetooth earbuds. They add to my chipper spirit because they are free.

There was a time I used to enjoy shopping. Particularly holiday shopping. This was long before I became a hermit. Even before the burgeoning online shopping phenomenon.

My closest imagining is that I’ll… Read more »

Why so negative?

I’ve been going on about all my purchases online, particularly through my Amazon Prime membership (in fact, I have some Weber grill grates arriving later today). One of the more beneficial aspects of the internet and online shopping is that people weigh in with their opinions on the products and services they purchase. The vast… Read more »
