It seems that not too long ago the summertime used to be called "summer vacation."
Now it's nothing like a vacation but rather the "summer work season."

How fast will this lawnmower go? One thing that we never want to do is to take shortcuts with safety.

We live in a fast-paced society. And in the age of the “soccer mom,” it can be all too easy to make a habit of grabbing food to go.
Remember that your children are watching the everyday choices you make. If mom or dad frequents the drive-thru, then it must be okay for the children, too.
Americans live hurried lives in an overweight and unhealthy society that is financially strained. Save your family money and calories and lead with a healthy and financially disciplined example.
