Accept a Gift Graciously

With Father’s Day coming up, you probably count on getting at least one or more “clunkers” from well-meaning gift-givers.  After all, tastes change and the way we view ourselves may be at least somewhat at odds with the way others envision us.  But no matter how awful or useless a gift is, it still represents

Time to Get a “You” Phone?

We know more than a few people who are still using their StarTAC or other no-frills cell phones.  Just for perspective, the StarTAC was introduced in 1996!  And while you have to admire their brand loyalty, their phones are really obsolete by almost any measure.
