Weekend Scoop: Independence Day Edition

Go to Kay Lynn Akers's Mirror.Me Reflection

What do you think of the graphic above?  It’s from Mirror.me and is a reflection of my twitter audience.  I think it’s interesting to see the interests of those I interact with in this social media venue. Try yours.

Today’s my grandson’s 2nd birthday and we’re taking him to Chuck E. Cheese for the first time.  His present from us is a laptop.  Don’t worry; it’s a toy but he has always been fascinated by what we’re doing on our computers so I thought he’d love to have his own!

I hope you have a great weekend whatever your plans.

Around the Web

Budget cutbacks went into effect in California on Friday.  It was the inspiration for my article at Couple Money on  4 Government Cutbacks that Directly Impact You.  An earlier article shared tips for garage sale shopping.

Thanks to the following publishers who shared a Bucksome Boomer article.
