Tying Up Loose Ends – An Update


I’ve mentioned before on how I have quite a few article sets that I have yet to finish. I’ve been known to come back to articles at random times, in some cases months between entries. As it stands now, though, I’m thinking I should try before the year is out to get the remainder of …

Last Minute Shoppers

It never ceases to amaze me how many people decide the days right before an event are the optimum time to purcahse gifts and other items for that event. These same people are then amazed when the stores are out of stock of items, and quickly complain about lines being backed up and everything taking …
