Rain, Snow or Shine a 56-year-old Detroit Man Walks 21 miles to Work

Every now and then I see a news story that really catches my attention and impresses me. This story is one of them.

James Robertson is a 56-year-old Detroit man who walks 21 miles to work every weekday as part of his commute to and from the factory where he earns $10.50 an hour. That is dedication!

He appreciates and knows the value of earning a living and supporting himself even if it means walking in the rain and snow since his old car quit working. He has a perfect attendance record at work. That’s impressive! That kind of work ethic is hard to find anymore.

College student Evan Leedy was so moved by his story that he set up a fund in hopes of getting enough donations to buy James Robertson a car. People were so impressed and moved by his story that online donations are now over $300,000!

Help James Robertson Get a Car by Evan Leedy

It’s inspiring to see this kind of mentality in the world today and it really struck a cord with a lot of people. You have to respect his determination and commitment.

Beautiful Wedding On A $7,500 Budget

My daughter was married on November 8th, 2014 and it was a beautiful outdoor fall wedding. The weather was perfect and thankfully everything fell into place.

We spent all summer planning for her wedding and our budget was $7,000. We went over that by $500. But we were happy with the choices we made and the vendors we chose so we did not stress about the extra $500.

This was a small wedding for about 75 people but I was amazed at how quickly the costs added up. We did all the decorating with the help of friends and family. Her colors were orange and charcoal grey. Perfect fall colors.

wedding on a budget

We held the wedding at the Historic Lowry House and it was a beautiful place for a wedding. This was one of our biggest expenses costing $1,125.00 but that included the tables and chairs and the rehearsal on Friday with a couple of extra hours for us to start decorating and all day Saturday.

Jump Start Your New Years Resolution with Jabra Headphones from Best Buy

If getting healthier by exercising more are part of your New Year’s resolution then Best Buy has the perfect accessory to get you started. Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless earbuds are the all-in-one training solution with integrated heart rate monitor.

My goal this year is to eat better and exercise more. I currently walk about two miles every other day. I hope to increase that to at least three miles or more, five or six days a week. I enjoy walking outside but in the winter I tend to walk less because I dislike walking on the treadmill. Maybe getting the Jabra Pulse earbuds from Best Buy will be the motivation I need to stick to my goal!

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.
