A few days ago, my mom, dad and I had a solid chat regarding how wasteful our society is. Hence the emphasis placed on consumerism; without it, we wouldn’t be nearly as wasteful as we are, in my opinion. Consider cell phones, as a prime example.

Typically, terms such as poisonous and life-saving don’t coincide with one another.

My parents opted to have central air conditioning installed in our home a few years ago now, and prior to having central air in our house, we relied on window units. They worked okay, but nothing … More Move over, AC; cooling roofs are here
Ahhhh, hangovers. As miserable as they are, they’re often an indication of a fun-filled evening that occurred prior to us waking up with a pounding head, which, in a way, is kind of a positive.
