Friends have been telling me about Five Guys Burgers and Fries for some time. I’ve thought about going but have never wanted to drive to Beaverton “just for a burger”. I mean, how good can their burgers really be, right? I can go to Burger King and get a burger for a buck – now […]

Free FUN Projects for Kids

A friend of ours told me about classes that they have at Lowe’s for kids. I didn’t give it too much thought. I’m not much of a “handy” person. I can craft up a storm, but hammer and nails… not so much. My brother and sister were granted that talent in our family. But the […]
