I, for one, am glad I am a human and NOT a Guinea Pig.That being said, being human can certainly be too busy at times. That time building up to Christmas, the decluttering after Christmas, the realization that now that it's the New Year we need to get our tax materials in order. Go, Go, Go!!!I th...

Now most of the shopping in our home is done on line when just as recent as ten years ago I personally purchased everything locally and usually from Main Street Mom and Pop store fronts.Unlike Ti...
