thanking all my friends

“Is there aperson you should’ve thanked, but never had the chance? Is there someone who helped you along the way without even realizing it? Here’s your chance to express your belated gratitude.”

I cannot think of anyone that I haven’t thanked for helping me become the person that I am today. We should always thank people who help us. So, this short letter goes out to you all. Dear friends,
I must thank you for being apart of my life. If I ever had a problem, whether that be personal or professional, I know that you all would be their for me; because you were always there for me in the past. Because let us be honest I have shown again and again that I am here and there and everywhere for you.
We have a great dynamic my friends and I. I am proud to call you all my friends. Respectfully Yours,
Tyler Shepard

4 apps that will help you in saving money while shopping

I can thank Associated Press writer Joseph Pisani for writing a well done article that inspired me to write this post. If you want to download these you can from the links at the end of this post. ___
Retale (available for Apple and Android devices)
If you are looking for circulars that can be found in newspapers this is the app for you. All you need do is open the app and search for the store you are looking for.
The reporter found circulars for Macy’s, Target, Toys R Us, Best Buy and other national retailers.
If you are looking for a coupon using this app just look for a green icon with scissors.
In order to access the coupons tap on it once then the app will clip all of them for you. The app places them into a separate folder to use when you get to the store. ___

RetailMeNot (available for Apple and Android devices)

Once you download this app all you need do is tap the heart icon to pick your favorite shops. You can see the deals at those stores at a glance.
You can get both in-store coupons and codes for stores’ websites. So, if a coupon isn’t in store you can still save money with the app. Isn’t that awesome? ___

Amazon and RedLaser (available for Apple, Android and Windows devices) These two apps together are your best friends.
If you find something at another store online several brick stores will match it. You can use the Amazon app to scan barcodes and find the price on amazon. If you want to find prices at other stores you can use RedLaser.
The app, which is owned by Ebay, will pull up prices throughout the internet once one scans the barcode. Some stores don’t match prices so you need to check.

defining thanksgiving via the dictionary

I was sitting around listening to music when I found myself pondering How does Google define thanksgiving? Below is the answer. It is always fun to see how the dictionary defines something like a holiday.
“(in North America) an annual national holiday marked by religious observances and a traditional meal including turkey. The holiday commemorates a harvest festival celebrated by the Pilgrims in 1621, and is held in the US on the fourth Thursday in November. A similar holiday is held in Canada, usually on the second Monday in October.” (google, 2014)
