I know this is the time of year when I’m supposed to watch less TV, not more. It’s barely dark out at 10 pm for goodness’ sake!

When the time comes, and you can bet that it will, you have got to have a good lawyer, accountant, doctor, and a guy-who-can-fix-stuff-around-the-house at your disposal. And of course, a BFF has to be part of that team too.— Read More —
