Welcome!  Today's post is about retirement living in Ensenada, Mexico.  I recently returned from a 3 day family vacation in Ensenada.  Earlier this summer, my wife and I had entertained the idea of going to Rosarito, Mexico for a short vacation with our kids.  We applied for Passport Cards (ID's that serve like passports when crossing the Mexican and Canadian border by vehicle) and even booked a place using Airbnb.com. ...

Just how proud are you of your heritage?  If you're like most Americans, probably very proud, especially if you're able to cite with some degree of certainty where in the world your ethnicity is rooted.  The United States is less than 300 years-old, a mere speck in time, and unless you are 100% Native American, you most likely have ethnic roots outside of the two American continents.  Knowing that your ...

Investing in cryptocurrency used to be a whole lot less complicated.  That's because in its infancy, there were just a few cryptocurrency to buy.  There was the original crypto, Bitcoin, of course, and Namecoin and Litecoin, emerging afterward in 2011.  Someone looking to get in on the ground floor of a new altcoin only needed to do research on a handful of non-Bitcoin options.  As of April 2018, there are ...

So our 2009 Nissan Rogue SL was in need of several repairs.  The lights on the dash in night view mode weren't turning on.  There was oil leaking from the engine block.  I had placed two plywood squares on the driveway to keep the oil from staining it.  There was a sound coming from the engine, the type you hear when a belt is going to rupture.  I didn't want ...

Hello everyone!  Today I have an excellent guest post about an issue that is seldom talked about when considering a home sale.  As homeowners, we worry about staging the inside of the house just right, making it immaculate in its appearance for all would-be buyers.  But what about the backyard?  Aside from landscaping it prior to an Open House, how else can you improve it, and increase your odds of ...

What's up everybody!  You know that everyone has turned to online shopping for the best deals, not even bothering to check their local brick and mortar stores sometimes.  Amazon and Ebay are my favorite "stores" to shop at virtually.  When it comes to needing automotive parts, however, I think many people still would rather visit their local Autozone, O'Reilly's, etc.  Unfortunately, these stores only sell brand new items you may ...
