  • Small change can turn into big benefits

    Treasure can be found in the most unlikely places and, according to the U.S. Treasury, Americans have about $15 billion dollars worth currently hiding in sock drawers, piggybanks, on automobile floorboards and under the sofa cushions. It is estimated that the average household accumulates $50 worth of change every month. It may seem like a bit of a stretch to think of pocket change as an investment opportunity, but in 20 years at 5 percent interest, that $50 in change would yield more than $20,000.

  • 'Vampire Hunter' a surprisingly good read

    On this day, 145 years ago, President Abraham Lincoln hoped for a relaxing evening at the theater. Four years of Civil War had taken a toll on him and he needed the diversion.

    He, his wife Mary and another couple decided to watch the comedy “Our American Cousin.”  They were laughing in all the right places, unaware that the sole bodyguard had abandoned his post.
