Digital Deals vs. Clipping Coupons...

For the past 33 years, I've watched my dear wife, Kathy, diligently clip coupons out of the Sunday newspaper, in a valiant struggle to save a few bucks on groceries that would inevitably be re-directed to some other pressing family need. A noble cause to be sure, but I just never took the time in those early years of our marriage to see the method behind her madness. I just chalked it up as something she was compelled to do because of her frugal Catholic upbringing and unction to keep idle…

Who's in Control of Your Health?

I saw my friend Gerry for the first time in years and was impressed by how healthy and young he now looks. For years he has had a problem with his weight, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

Not only does he feel great, but also his cholesterol is now within normal range and his doctor is ready to take him off… Continue
