A word about our blog: 

We're conscientious, but we don't work 24/7. We're active, engaged in a community we love, we cook, play, read. All the usual suspects. And we thought you might like a glimpse of our non-financial side. This blog is meant to be a 180 degree departure from the rest of the content on this website. We usually post every few weeks.
