Have you signed up for Dosh yet?

Don’t miss out on this hot app that earns easy cash I’ve been working with Dosh for nearly a year now. At first, it was a new application that had some glitches and not many stores.  Now, they’ve given away millions of dollars in cash rebates and referral fees. They have also built up quite a list of participating stores, restaurants, and hotels. Have you signed up and gotten your share? This app is very simple to use. You can download it from the Apple, Android, or Google Play application store.  You enter in your credit card in the secure system. Nothing gets charged, but you’ll get $5 cash just for entering your first card (and $1 for each additional card you put in). Then, when you use that credit card at a participating store, you’ll automatically get the cash in your Dosh wallet – no coupons, no scanning receipts, not codes. I just got $2.88 for shoes I bought at Tom's for my daughter.  Dosh cash is money, plain and simple. You don’t have

A Deliciously Fun Day in Chicago

It’s always fun when I get to spend a day exploring with a good friend. Angela and I managed to eat our way around Chicago for this trip! I had no idea what to expect when was invited to check out and sample the foods at the  Chicago French Market . I actually thought it was outside, so I was surprised to find it inside a building. The market is actually conveniently located to the train station from the suburbs.  (it’s also only a 10-minute walk from Union Station). They’ve also got something you will be hard pressed to find anywhere else in the windy city – free parking (you do need to spend $20 at the market). I had set up a meeting with a rep from the market to take me around and provide us with some samples.  Before she met us, I walked around and took a quick look at the variety of shops. It seemed they covered everything among the 30 vendors. In some cases, it was the only location in the city. I saw all types of fruits at City Fresh Market; meats

Lodge Kohler Spa and Titletown Tour in Greenbay

My first trip to Titletown in Green Bay, Wisconsin , was winding down, but we still had a few things left to check out on the final day. Rich and I had enjoyed breakfast at  Lodge Kohler's  Leaps & Bounds CafĂ© the day before and decided to go down and see what else we could try on the menu. The thing I like most about Leaps & Bounds was that there were quite a few things that you rarely find on menus, certainly not on the menu of a hotel coffee shop. For our Sunday morning, I chose the West Coast Wrap, with egg whites, avocado, spinach, tomato, inside a whole-grain wrap spread with a light herb cream cheese. It was delicious. Rich had the Breakfast Sandwich. It has scrambled eggs, cheddar and arugula, with a bratwurst patty on a toasted English muffin, a combination he enjoyed. We shared an order of the Classic Beignets, which had an unusual twist: they were served with a spiced chocolate sauce and an apricot-ginger jam.  I thought both went

Home of the Legendary Green Bay Packers

My introduction to Titletown was a good one (especially the spa treatment at Lodge Kohler ) and I was ready to enjoy day two with my friend, Rich. We started with breakfast at the hotel’s Leaps and Bounds cafe. It’s far from a hotel coffee shop and has a very unique menu. Everything sounded great, but I had to go for the eggs with popovers. It reminded me of a restaurant I worked at while in high school, called 1890 Dining Car. They were known for their popovers and I haven’t had very many since. They were as eggy, light, and scrumptious as I remembered. Rich shared them and also had a frittata with sausage and mushrooms. After breakfast, we took advantage of the free, local car service Lodge Kohler offers to go to the other side of Lambeau Field, where our tour of the stadium was to begin. The Green Bay Packers offer many levels of the Lambeau Field Tours . If you have the time (2-3 hours), take the Legendary Tour we did. It includes some extras, and en
