Happy #NationalCheeseburgerDay!

Happy National Cheeseburger Day friends!

This made me think of an old cartoon character J. Wellington Wimpy,  aka Wimpy the Moocher, from the old Popeye cartoons. Here is a clip to freshen your memory:

“I would gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.” – J. Wellington Wimpy

If you think about it those of us that carry the heavy burden of debt are a Wimpy the Moocher. We want the hamburger, new car, or new shiny Apple gadget now but we want to pay for it Tuesday. In other words we accumulate debt with credit cards, financing, and loans for things we cannot afford.

Don’t pay for that cheeseburger today on credit like Wimpy!

How Technology Helped Beat a Hurricane

The weather this month of September 2017 is brutal. We have record floods in Southeast Texas. The US Southeastern coast is currently battling the strongest hurricane on record with Irma. The West is battling rampant destructive fires. Now I received a notification on my phone there is another category 4 hurricane named Jose. These natural disasters cause widespread destruction and hardships and affect so many people. Yet, out of destruction shines hope. Thousands of volunteers rushed to Texas to rescue Flood victims and provide aid to those in need. After Irma passes I know the same will take place in Florida and the Southeastern US. Below are three amazing examples of how technology helped beat a hurricane.
