Eagles fans (new and old) are still celebrating…

Philadelphia winning its first Super Bowl last night in Minneapolis.

More than 15 records were broken last night.

*Starting (back-up) quarterback Nick Foles (like TOLLs) earning MVP honors.

Not too long ago, the 29 year old was considering retirement.

Last night, Foles became Super Bowl MVP.

Nick takes seminary classes (through Liberty University) and eventually wants to be a youth pastor… https://goo.gl/qE7DYq

“You never really know what it’s going to be like when you go into a Super Bowl.

It doesn’t get any bigger than this. I think the big thing that helped me  –  was knowing I didn’t have to be Superman.”

-Nick Foles, Philadelphia Eagles QB, MVP of Super Bowl 52    https://goo.gl/qE7DYq

Common tax return mistakes that can delay your refund

The IRS says that getting Social Security numbers wrong on tax returns is one of the most common errors it sees. Along with Wrong Social Security numbers, other simple mistakes that could delay your refund form the IRS include: Wrong filing status, Misspelled names and Math errors.

NOTE: If you decide to prepare your own return, the best way to avoid mistakes is to do the work in two separate sessions. Fill out your tax return, then set the documents aside for at least 24 hours. After that time has elapsed, come back to the return and double check all the names, numbers and calculations on the return. By coming back to it with a fresh mind, you’re more likely to spot errors and get them fixed – before the IRS can call them to your attention.  The Motley Fool   https://goo.gl/1FHjoW

“Wouldn’t you like to Be a Pepper too?”

He’s a Pepper

She’s a Pepper

We’re a Pepper

The Dr Pepper story: On December 1, 1885, a pharmacist in Waco, Texas, served the first DrPepper. That makes the soda a year older than Coca Cola.   The Dr Pepper Museum is located in downtown Waco, Texas.   https://goo.gl/CLZbQV
