Have another round? No, I mean drinks!

Blog Guy, I need some of your great advice on home entertaining.

Blog Guy, I  need some advice on personal finances.

Like many people these days, money is tight.

Lonnie! Where you goin' with my good table?

Nowhere, Ma!

Lonnie, I'm not stupid! You're strappin' my good table to yer car!
