The report found that 81% of the people said that pet considerations play a role when deciding on their next living situation. In 2016, 61% of U.S. households either have a pet or plan to get one in the future, so it is important to understand the unique needs and […]
Love is all around. Smile, wave, say Hi, return the grocery cart to the store, allow people in the roundabout, move over when someone is walking down the sidewalk, say “you first”, pay for someone’s coffee, shovel your neighbor’s […]

Point and Click We are so used to making decisions with the click of the mouse. Like me and click here are becoming synonymous with Yes. Click here leads us to a new page with new opportunities. There has become a trust level inherently built in. Unfortunately, our choices thru advertising don’t always lead us the best place.
