This has been the most difficult blog to write. I started thinking what can I write about... no one cares about technology or business related matters right now. So with that being said, I decided to express my sympathy for our community. First off my prayers go out to the families of our fallen heroes, our brave police officers, and our sheriff. This past week has been an emotional one for our community as a whole. This tragic event has bonded our already close nit community even closer. On Friday, I watched as many people flooded in to donate anything they had...

These days there's a charge for everything. The cable and cellphone companies are monopolizing the industry! Do we even know what services we are paying for on a monthly basis and is it worth it?

It’s natural to seek cool shelter indoors, but keeping your home cooler during the summer months can wreak havoc on your electricity bill. The elderly, small children and pets need cooler temperatures to be comfortable. It is noted that at least ½ of your electricity bill is for cooling during the hot months.

Hurricane season is already here, along with the sweltering heat. News outlets are always telling us to be prepared and to get ready for a busy hurricane season. But, how many of us are truly prepared the way we are supposed to be prepared? I know in my household we are not properly prepared. We have some essentials but will that last if we have no power for over a week? Do we really have the necessary items that will benefit our needs? I remember one time I was packing to evacuate and my dad asked me if I was ready...
