She also mentioned other signs that are usually present 48 to 72 hours before death occurs and my niece has reported this, too, is occurring. My big sister & me. The Hospice nurse reported that my sister is now in the active stage of dying which means 1 to 2 weeks at the most. So if I am all of a sudden not posting you will know why.

Grandparenthood Can Be Expensive!

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

I’ve seen the nieces and my own kids ask for and get babysitting services time after time from a busy working boomer. If you are a parent, some day you will most likely become a grandparent. Being a grandparent is tons more fun than parenting. You get to enjoy all the cute moments and hand back the kid when they stink or act out! You aren’t responsible for teaching them to behave like human beings. Yet you can enjoy loving them and being loved by them.

Do the Rich Use Debt Differently?

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

One of my nieces did this when borrowing for college. When I was a mainframe computer programmer and project manager, we used a relational database product from IBM called DB2. Programmers would code a call to DB2 and the software it had would figure out the best way to go get the data and present it back to the program.

Christmas Shopping the Smart Way

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

If you have a niece you want to buy a gift for but don’t know what she likes, ask her parents. We’re just a few short weeks from the Christmas panic. You know the time 5 days or less before Christmas when even more people hit the shopping mall in droves frantically scrambling for presents? People who wait this long usually aren’t shopping for the perfect gift; instead, they’re just looking to give ANY gift so the people in their lives will know that they care.
