Cafe Rio Grand Opening in Short Pump Virginia TOMORROW!

cafe rio 4

One thing I love about living in Richmond, VA is the amazing selection of restaurants. There is just about anything you can think of here to eat. One of my favorite cuisines, though, has always been Mexican food. Needless to say, I was excited to hear a new place opening near me to check out. I had never heard of Cafe Rio before, but I kept hearing about it coming in 2015 and how great their food is. Being a skeptic, I honestly thought to myself “could it be THAT much better than any other Mexican style restaurant here already?” Well, I had the opportunity to attend a VIP dinner there last night and lets just say fresh ingredients truly make this place stand out! As I browsed the menu, it seemed slightly small. Not a ton of choices.. but this is actually a plus because it helps them move … read more

Saving Money By Bringing Down Computer Virus Expenses

Saving Money By Bringing Down Computer Virus Expenses Bringing down computer-related expenses can be challenging. For example, the cost of getting a new operating system installed or reinstalled can easily go up to a few 100 dollars, particularly if the reason for the OS crash was a sophisticated malware or virus. Planning ahead of time to bring down computer expenses can help you avoid wasting dollars on unnecessary repairs, new patches, and compatibility issues. If you are new to computers, educating yourself on the possible damages, their financial consequences, and mitigation strategies can save you time and money. Computer-virus damage and financial costs FBI released a report that computer viruses cost more than $24,000 per computer. To companies, the total cost of these viruses are $67.2 billion per year.

Are times really so bad that funeral homes have to be so uncaring?!

jess urn

No one ever wants to think of death. many of us have life insurance or prepaid plots etc. to make it easier on our loved ones, But what about those who don’t? Those who are too young to really have thought about that? And what about those who are low income with families who are also on limited budgets? What happens when an unexpected death occurs and you aren’t prepared? You’d like to think that you will call a funeral home and they will be so kind and caring to hold your hand and walk you along the way. They will help you in every way possible, work out payments you and your family can afford, and take a little stress off of you as you walk through likely the most difficult time in your entire existence. At least that’s  kind of what I had always thought… and boy I … read more


The Saddest Post I Will Ever Write (and a thanks for everything from you all!)

on January 4th 1988, I was blessed with a little sister. I was barely two at the time, but she quickly became my best friend. I mean, that’s what sisters are for right? We have had our ups and downs but that’s all families. As we got older we grew apart with our separate lives. We were close as teens and young adults when we went through a bad life phase. I finally got out of that life and she continued. Fast forward a few years and I found out I was pregnant. I think she was just as happy as I was. She was always there and told me my son saved her life. She called him every single night that she could to tell him good night. She thought being an aunt was the next best thing to having a kid of her own, which she wasn’t blessed … read more
