Rolling Transaction? What on earth is that?
Rolling Transaction? What on earth is that?
I hear that question frequently. “Rolling Transaction?” “I don’t think I could do that.”
Most people already do rolling transactions, but aren’t realizing they are doing it. It’s a multiple transactions on your purchases at one time, but using the rewards you get from each transaction on the next one to help you save the most money on your trip.
I’ll be honest. The first time I saw my friend and coupon shopping buddy do a rolling transaction, it ...
Try it FREE for a month! Adult and kid classes! The ONLY karate school we will endorse!
A couple of months ago I started taking an adult karate class at Imperial Dragon Tang Soo Do. Mostly because I am turning 40 and decided it would be a great time to pick up a highly physical sport with my less than highly physically fit body. Why didn't I see the break in the logic on that one?
I know you are on the edge of your seats wondering how it's been going!
I am here to tell you that I LOVE IT!!!!!
I still can't ...

THREE RIVERS PAINTBALL & AIRSOFT
IS WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA'S LARGEST PAINTBALL FACILITY OWNED AND OPERATED SINCE 1984!
Airsoft is a recreational activity in which participants launch spherical plastic projectiles at each other via spring, electric, or compressed-gas powered replica/toy firearms.
Airsoft is a sport in the same way that paintball is, however it is generally a little more diverse. Airsoft revolves around firing a projectile at an opponent in order to eliminate them from game-play in some fashion. Unlike paintball, where hits are clearly visible, airsoft bbs are non-marking. Due ...
The Comfort Zone
I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I couldn’t fail;
The same four walls of busy work were really more like a jail.
I longed so much to ...

Cinco de Mayo is Spanish for the fifth of May and remembers the day in 1862 when Mexico's army had an unlikely victory over the French. Ironically, the holiday is not widely celebrated in Mexico...but we sure enjoy it here! This cookie is a tasty and easy way to celebrate. Olé.
What you need:
Refrigerated Sugar Cookie dough (we use the kind in a tube...but you could use your own dough and cut them into circles)
Bake cookies as directed ...
I love when my office mate comes into work and says these magical words, “I have something you have got to try”. This means she is about to tell me the recipe for some kind of Mexican goodness that her family dines on at home. She must know me pretty well, because the ones that she shares with me are always simple. I have requested that neither of us ever have to change offices for this reason alone!
Fried bananas are possibly one of the best 2-ingredient snacks that I ...
Want to get a little more life out of those most-loved yet way-too-small shirts? Make 'em into reusable tote bags! Trust me when I tell you this is E.A.S.Y.

You will need:

2-2 liter plastic bottles
