Celebrate October!

Posted by Andy L. on

October is the month when Americans celebrate Christopher Columbus (October 12th) and Halloween (October 31st). In line with tradition, this month Americans will find themselves bombarded with political ads and debates as both Republicans and Democrats spend billions of dollars in the nation's Presidential election next month. This happens in the midst of many uncertainties that include the near-daily street riots, the duopoly of both the COVID-19 pandemic and influenza, and businesses closing leading to a high unemployment rate. If your level of worry hasn't peaked as autumn comes into full swing, make this month the most important month to...

Posted by Andy L. on

In 1861, the United States Postal Service printed the 1 cent  Ben Franklin stamp that would pay for nearly all the letters that were mailed. The 1 cent Ben would pay for a 2 oz letter, circular, and even books that weighed less than 4 pounds! If you think that's outrageous, it's true! Fast forward to today... it will cost you 55 cents to mail your letter and another 15 cents for each additional ounce. So, if you're writing a 9-10 page letter plus a standard-sized envelope, prepare to fork over your hard-earned pennies. Just imagine for a second if...
