“Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill.”– Buddha

No secret, I LOVE to try new things. Mostly I find things on my own that I want to share with you because I think they’re neat, and sometimes companies send me things to test – in which case, I’ll always let you know that’s what’s up, (trust me when I say that I decline more than I will accept), but in either instance, be assured that when I give you my opinion on something, it is heartfelt.

Silvercar by Audi Review – Luxury car rental experience

What is Silvercar by Audi? I always check my American Express for offers when I’m renting cars, looking for a discount on one of the big three (Hertz, Avis, Budget). The only car rental offer I found was for something I’d never heard of, “Silvercar by Audi.” Hmmm. I...

A Round-up of North Texas Farmers Markets

A Round-up of North Texas Farmers Markets

One of the best things about summer is the Saturday morning tradition of shopping the local farmers market. If you've never been, a farmers market is (typically) an outdoor, temporary event where local growers come and set up a booth to sell directly to shoppers....
