10 Random Things

In no particular order...

  1. Happy (Belated) Mother's Day to all of you ladies (and in some cases dads!) out there.  I meant to post this yesterday then promptly forgot about it.  I hope you all had a nice Sunday!
  2. I wandered around downtown Las Vegas yesterday and took lots of picture of all of the murals and graffiti art on the sides of buildings (see above).  It was a nice way to spend the afternoon.
  3. We have been looking at different cell phone plans (our current plan provides way more data and minutes than we need) and so far Ting and this Mint promotion look like something we may check out.
  4. It's EDC weekend in Las Vegas!  And we will stay far from the action.  Last year nearly 400,000 people attended this three day music festival!  eeekkk
  5. Interesting article #1--Man buys Tesla with his Alexa-aided side gig.
  6. Interesting article #2--How Social Media Harms Your Mental Health
  7. Useful article #1--7 Crucial Money Lessons
  8. Useful article #2--May Free Food and Deals List
  9. We are  on the hunt for new living room furniture.  While we didn't put much thought into furniture when we first moved here (we were looking for the best deal so hit up a furniture store clearance warehouse and got nice enough furniture) this time we are looking at all of the stores and comparing features and prices and have come to the conclusion that buying new furniture is a mind-boggling task.
  10. Gas prices in our area are moving ever higher.  Not sure how it is around the rest of the country but I miss the days of $2.50 a gallon gas!


  1. I wouldn’t want to be near that kind of crowd either! Buying furniture is a time consuming task, we always want quality for the best price don’t we. Gas in Canada is sold by the litres but it works out to about 6 dollars a gallon here in Northern Ontario, does nothing to encourage road trips lol,

    1. $6 a gallon! Yikes! A friend is visiting from Canada and she is shopping like mad, apparently the prices for many things in the US are less than in Canada so she is planning to take a carload of stuff home.
