Quicken was first released in 1983 and has been the most popular financial software package since, so it’s only fair that expectations for it are high. I’ve been using it since Windows 3.1, and have seen it grow and become easier to use over the years. I have to say that if it’s properly set-up … More Review: Quicken Mobile
Having been a long-time user of Quicken, I thought making the switch to Mint would be a breeze. Mint is free, Quicken isn’t. And not only that, they’re both made by Intuit. It seemed like a no-brainer. Well, it wasn’t. After setting up all my accounts to synch and display in Mint, it seemed like … More Mint or Quicken?

Linear Park will be available November 22, 2017. The cover was done by Brooke Albrecht and does a great job showing the place and the characters. Blurb: … More Linear Park

When my husband’s G5 got the assistant, he wasn’t going to turn it on, and I … More Is the Google Home Mini Necessary?
It’s been three weeks since I switched to Cricket Wireless and I’m happy with the service thus far. Having 4 gig of data was freeing, and I sucked it up willy-nilly. I refused to put my Play Music into download only mode, and streamed music in the car; Instagram posts were made on the fly … More Cricket Wireless, a Smart Choice

Since switching, my cell phone bill has been about $30.00/month (between $26 and $32). I’ve been able to keep my bill low by being careful about data usage, which is … More Cricket Wireless v.s.
