Take five minutes out of your busy day and read Mike’s short story about his visit to Santa. It’s a good read! One of the great things about working on WordPress.com is that I come across brilliant posts like this one. Granted, his blog is in the top 10 most popular, but there are plenty […]
Hope you had a nice Christmas and you’re enjoying the holiday! I just took a look at my credit card statement and I’m glad the new credit card PIN numbers were brought in. I forgot mine several months ago and now I rarely use my card because a lot of shops won’t accept a chipped […]
