Custom cases for phones and tablets

I get attached to my electronics. I'm the last person to run out and get a new phone, or tablet, just because it's new. Getting the newest version of tech isn't high on my priority list.

I don't carry a purse, just use pockets. I like a phone that can slip into my pocket, is that so wrong? Well, I … ...Read More...

Happy Thanksgiving from the Sunflowers

Thanksgiving. I remember when I was younger, everyone had to get all their Thanksgiving supplies before the holiday, because no stores were open on Thanksgiving. We all survived having stores closed, because we all headed out to be with loved ones. Now?  Stores are opening up earlier, and earlier on Thanksgiving Day. I'm not sure how you all feel about this turn of events, but for me, it's sad to see. There's just no reason for it. People can save money all through the year, and stores choose … ...Read More...
