GetUpside is an app that pays cash back on your fuel purchases. With the price of gas going back up again, everyone is trying to find ways to save money. In my city of Palm Coast, Florida there are quite a few participating gas stations, and the cash back per gallon ranges from 12 to 25 cents. There are also bonuses and special offers much higher than this. I filled up my Jeep on my first use and got back more than $10, not bad at all. Of course, it also makes sense to use an app like GasBuddy to…

I was a bit confused but pleasantly surprised when setting up my new 4K TV to see a built-in app called Samsung TV Plus. After clicking on the app I was amazed to see a scrolling menu with over 150 channels (many broadcasting in 4K). Not a free trial — these channels are included and free forever (Samsung TV or device required). Many channels have commercials, but those of you paying for cable TV also have ads on top of shelling out $75 or more per month, right?

If you don’t have a Samsung TV, there is a growing list…


This article was originally published prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, but with many Asian countries relaxing restrictions, teaching opportunities will widely reopen soon in Korea and Japan.

It was an 8:30 am rendezvous at exit 10 of a major subway stop. No, I am not in New York City, I am in Seoul, South Korea. I am meeting two North American English teachers to find out what it is like teaching here. We end up at an American style diner in the Gangnam District. After traveling 7,500 miles, a hearty American breakfast sounds like just the ticket to help me…


One place you may not have been in a while is your local library, as many have been closed due to the pandemic. Libraries are making big changes these days, and it is all about transitioning to online content. If your local library has taken the leap into the digital world, you could save hundreds and maybe even thousands of dollars each year.

Your Library Card Is Worth Thousands Of Dollars

I live in a small town and our library is a little outdated. I made frequent trips to the library when my children were younger and needed access to…


Another great article. I am an Evangelical Christian and I have never heard of Mark Gungor. I just shared this article to my entire following. From what you have posted here (which is all I know about Mark Gungor) his approach is not biblical. We are to love our wives as Christ loved the church, not turn them into sex objects. The way he childishly interacted with Sheila showed his true colors. I have just asked my producer to book Sheila to come on my show to discuss this. 50 Claps!


I have worked in the real estate industry on and off for many years, at one time I even was a partner in a real estate brokerage here in Florida. Despite my years of experience in real estate, I had never heard of ‘home title fraud’ until recently. The most shocking aspect of this crime is how easy it is to pull off and how most victims don’t find out until it is too late.

Home title fraud occurs when a property deed is altered and the owner listed is changed to the name of the criminal. In many cases…

My friends, Tom and Mary (names changed to protect identities), are headed for divorce after thirty years of marriage, and it is because of Covid! I know this sounds crazy, so let me explain. The tension began with the lock-down, and like many couples stuck at home for several weeks, it was not easy. They are both strong personalities and need their space. Things got worse, however, when Mary announced to Tom that she received a mask exemption from her doctor. Due to a traumatic event in her childhood, Mary can not wear a mask without it evoking this memory…


Americans have too much stuff! Who can argue with that? Self storage is a $40 billion dollar per year business. If you have ever rented space at one of these facilities, you know it is not cheap. Even a small 10 x 10 unit can cost $100 or more per month. The price skyrockets when you consider storing larger items such as RVs, boats, or automobiles.

The New Opportunity In Peer To Peer Storage Space Rental

Cutting out the big box rental facilities, so called peer-to-peer storage apps are connecting people with available space in their home with those needing…

My wife and I have become increasingly frustrated at the rising cost of our auto insurance. We live in Florida, and all forms of insurance here are becoming more expensive because of the explosion in population.

I stumbled across an article that listed Florida Farm Bureau as the best value for auto insurance in my state. I had honestly never heard of the company, but I hit the computer and found the phone number for the local office. I got a quick price quote over the phone, which offered a savings of over 30% from my current rate!

The agent…

With the arrest this week of Ghislaine Maxwell, the secrets Jeffrey Epstein took to his grave may finally be revealed. An international man of mystery, a math genius, he was associated with both MIT scientists and the likes of Bill Gates and Stephen Hawking. My personal question: Did he own Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency? I think it would be more than reasonable to expect cryptocurrency to have been within his wheelhouse. Heck, with his math background and science connections I have even considered the prospect that he was involved with the creation of Bitcoin.

Other than Epstein saying ‘Bitcoin is…
