Early Morning Roundup: $500 in Coins

by Luke Landes

Yesterday, I overheard a co-worker talk about her coin jar. She and her husband throw all their change at the end of the day into a job. Once a year, before taking a vacation, they open the coin jar and find about $500. The small change certainly adds up. My girlfriend and I throw our […]

Weekly Blog Roundup I, Blogging From the Airport Edition

I arrived early to the airport for my flight to California today. When checking into my full flight, I was able to switch seats and select the exit row. I’ll have a few more inches of leg room than I would have had, had I not been able to switch. There is WiFi here at […]
