*Sob* Google Hates Me!

Looks like Google decided to celebrate their tenth birthday by updating PR…a month early!  Although I have never really given up hope for my three main blogs that I do paid posting for…I wasn’t surprised that they all remained at 0.

Our Little Town Grows

Our little town is slowly growing. When we first moved here 15 years ago there were a few “mom & pop” restaurants, a bowling alley, and one grocery store. Slowly but surely over the years one franchise after another has opened here in town.
We now have a McDonalds, a Subway, a Dollar General, […]
