    Considering going solo in the workforce? You should! (sponsored)

    This article sponsored by




    If you’re like most Americans over 50, you plan to work after retirement in some capacity. You may even be considering changing the way you work and going into business for yourself. Where once that would have been considered a dream job and beyond the realm of reality, thanks to advances in technological innovation, it’s not so remote an idea to work "remotely." Here are a few reasons why the solo workforce isn’t a fad...

    Whole lotta yum in Taco Bueno's Wholotta Box (review and giveaway)

    Updated on Wednesday, May 24, 2017 by Registered CommenterLisa Carpenter

    I took advantage of the sunshine and warm temps on Wednesday — just before spring snow returned on Thursday — and spent several hours working in my yard. The weed pulling and thinning of non-weed sorts of things left me a whole lotta hungry... and so nada wanting to make dinner.

    Fortunately I recently received a gift card from Taco Bueno so I could try out the Tex-Mex fast food chain's newest offering: the Wholotta Box.

    With my youngest daughter planning to join my husband and me for dinner, the Wholotta Box seemed the perfect solution for a satisfying meal without me having to...

    Ting Mobile is Grandma’s answer to reliable, affordable cell phone service (sponsored)

    This post sponsored by Ting Mobile

    ting mobileToday, it’s easy to feel like you’re being relentlessly bombarded with expensive changes and necessary technologies with elaborate features that you may not use much. Web access and cable are pricey, and the cost of mainstream mobile service is always on the rise.

    With so many major cellular carriers switching to “everything” plans that include unlimited data, texts and minutes, cell phones are becoming an overpriced luxury to people who don’t use their phones much but still need them. If you identify with that group, Ting Mobile feels your pain and has the perfect solution. Imagine paying less for only what you use instead of shelling out more for the luxury of unlimited cellular features.

    The main difference with Ting is that they offer rates instead of plans. Your monthly bill won’t be...

    The most important thing we can do for our grandchildren (Sponsored post)

    This post sponsored by Sandvik Media in collaboration with The GRANDparent Network.

    grandparents and grandchildren love books

    The most important thing we can do for our grandchildren is much simpler than you might expect. Parents these days know all about the dangers of “screen time” and the technology overload that kids now face. It's hard being a parent today, but there's something us grandparents can do to help. Our strategy is to surround the grandkids with the best books for their age, read to them every chance we get, and nurture their natural curiosity.

    The research validates the obvious; that reading skills are essential to...

    Safe and warm: The HeatGenius Ceramic Heater from Honeywell

    As I write this, it's snowy and 7 degrees with a "feels like" of -8 degrees. Outside.

    Inside, here in my study where I write, it's a warm and cozy 73 degrees thanks in large part to the HeatGenius Ceramic Heater from Honeywell I received free for review.

    Honeywell HeatGenius Ceramic Heater

    The "in my study" part is important as it's not 73 degrees in the rest of my house. Doesn't need to be 73 degrees in the rest of my house because I'll be spending most of today right here, writing in my study. And the HeatGenius efficiently warms this space without me wasting energy...
