Taxing Day

Some Saturdays are entertaining and filled with fun. Today (for me) wasn’t one of those Saturdays. Attempting to get a head-start on my usual April 15th scramble, I carved out today to get the annual torment completed. And, much as I expected, the tedious exercise took the best part of my day. (Can anyone say […]

The Boon of Free College

Life just keeps getting better and better, doesn’t it? First, we were graced with “free” (or at least “affordable“) health care. The nuts and bolts of that plan have yet to fully fall into place, but when you file your income tax return (by April 15th, presumably), you’ll be queried (in depth) about what you’ve paid […]

Along with other nudges back in 2010 (see my initial post of explanation here), Abby urged me to take […]

Fifteen Minutes A Day

Who among us wouldn’t be happy about shedding a few pounds? I don’t even have a scale, but I’m aware when my clothing feels more snug than normal. So, having partaken of many holiday goodies over the last couple months, I’ve been working the elliptical with added intensity and motivation. Now comes a joint study […]
