Psychologists say ‘we’ all feel ‘happier’ when we spend our money on experiences rather than objects. -Ryan Howell, lead researcher from San Francisco State University
How much should I spend on that experience? You may be surprised…
One of the cool findings from a study through San Francisco State University is that you don’t have to spend lots of money to have a meaningful experience.
Examples: $5 going to a coffee shop. A couple of hours at a ballgame. A meal together. Or an hour at a spa. Also, spending MORE money doesn’t correlate to a more meaningful experience.

June 14: Today is ‘US Flag Day’

Flag Etiquette to consider when flying Old Glory…
The flag should never touch the ground or the floor; unless it is an all-weather flag, it should never be flown in bad weather; the flag should only be flown from sunrise to sunset unless it can be properly illuminated.
Don’t use the flag to carry, cover or store anything; never fly the flag upside down unless to signal an emergency; no writing should ever be put on the flag and the flag must always be allowed to fly free. www.usflag.org/flagetiquette.html

BTW: What did one flag say to the other flag?
A: Nothing. It just ‘waved’!
