In a post in early April, Nick the Appraiser  offered to create a graphic signature for anyone who requested it.  He asked for a nominal fee of $20, which is really a donation for charity.  Many of us took Nick up on his generous offer and I love mine. Thanks  Nick for creating my fun graphic sig...
Since I'm on a savings and investment kick tonight, let's talk coffee. I like coffee as well as the next person, but I'm always amazed at the constant lines I see at every corner expresso stand in town.
