Free Sample Kicks Off Philosophical Journey On Friday, my wife received a free sample of the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser in the mail. We’ve had them before and I have had a few impressive cleanings with them and didn’t contemplate things too deeply. That is until my 7-year-old woke up Saturday morning with his probing questions when I barely had a coffee in me. Alright, that’s pretty sharp. Why *is* this guy shining his earring until it sparkles with this magic cleaner? Why is he even wearing an earring? Is he a Genie? What does it all mean? Is...Read More

Please Do an Act of Kindness for Someone Lately, I’ve been seeing a bunch of my Facebook friends doing random acts of kindness for strangers using the hashtag BeccaToldMeTo.

The spirit of giving starts with one but quickly spreads to hundreds and thousands. Here is an inspiring story about a boy, his father and giving back to the community. 1.

Avoid Bank Fees Tangerine Bank is a Canadian bank with great service and no fees. I have been a happy Tangerine client since day 1.
