Years ago, Annette's dad, Syl Meola retired from a sales job in the electronics industry and took a job at his local church as the head of the maintenance department — that's right, he became a janitor. Syl is the consummate organizer and master of efficiency. He can fit more stuff in a small space than anyone we know. One thing he noticed was that whenever there was a reception or some sort of meeting where drinks were served from a coffee pot or cooler, inevitably some of the liquid ended up dripping on floor.
A subscriber turned us on to Restaurant.com to SAVE on Dining. We tried it for our anniversary last year and enjoyed a $35 meal for only $18 (this included the price of the gift certificate we purchased, tip, tax and the cost of the meal). The selection of restaurants is great.
We like T-Mobile Prepaid Plans (read more about them here) and just purchased a pre-paid phone for emergencies. T-Mobile's customer service is phenomenal. Their best deal is to buy 1000 minutes of air-time (1 year expiration) and then roll-over any unused minutes by purchasing any denomination of minutes before the end of the year.
