At What Cost?

At What Cost? New or Used… Or even Free… Everything has a cost. I woke early this morning, spent a few minutes into my morning routine, and this thought crept in as I read the article about a billionaire who makes more money in 5 days than most of us make in a lifetime. Yep. I…

Why? Why not….

Part of what I hoped the blogging would accomplish is presenting an insight that is needed by some, and wished for by others. Maybe it’s like a local news team that spoke of the presidential debates before the election, “We listen so you don’t have to.”
