The Christmas/New Year’s break is full of excitement for the kids, and for us as well, but we also have to figure out where they will go, and what they will do, when we have to go back to work and they’re still out of school.

Carter, Bill.jpg

As a rite of passage for growing older, I have deemed anything concerning change as totally unnecessary in my life.
I never have been a fan of change. Change is dirty and germ ridden. It’s like ground clutter on my dresser or in the console of my truck.
Can you imagine how many pockets this 1981 nickel has been in? Here’s a 1996 dime that has been handled so many times, the edges are worn off.
If we could convince Americans to round up or round down, we would not need change. There are very few items that consumers can purchase for 50 cents or less anymore.
