Although it may seem like we have at least another month until the first snowfall, the dreaded ice storms and snowy days will be upon us sooner than you think—and we need to get prepared. You don’t want to be in the position where you need to go buy a new a snow shovel, but you can’t actually leave your house because you can't shovel your driveway.

BySusan Forray Oct. 26, 2018 My new “I’m the man,” he said. “I should be in charge of the money.” “Right,” I said, feeling a jolt of anxiety. As a partner at a financial consulting firm, I thought: “I’m in charge of the money every day.” But I reasoned that he and I weren’t going to be sharing a checking account anytime soon, so why end things prematurely? Besides, in the context of our conversation, he wasn’t even referring to me but to his ex-wife; they had been driven apart by financial disagreements. This put some distance between his words and me, or so I told myself. I didn’t normally … [Read more...] about How I Fell for an ‘I’m the Man’ Man

Apple recently released an upgrade of its high-end MacBook Pro, which I have been trying out, so it’s a good time for me to ask: Would I get a Macintosh laptop today? Should you? I wish I could provide a quick, definitive answer, but … it’s complicated. I say this as a decades-long Apple enthusiast who has been in the market for an Apple laptop since 2016. At that time, I gave the newly redesigned version of the MacBook Pro high marks. The laptop, with a strip-style mini-screen called the Touch Bar in place of physical function keys, impressed me. The new MacBook Pro seemed like a dandy addition to my Apple-centric home — alongside a MacBook Air notebook used (and loved) by my wife, and an earlier-model MacBook Pro used (and adored) by our college-age son.

Generous financial incentives like tax credits and rebates can further sweeten the deal on all kinds of energy-saving improvements, from insulation to heating and cooling equipment. There’s a lot of money out there. Most Massachusetts residents have access to free energy audits and dozens of discounts, funded by a surcharge on their … [Read more...] about Don’t miss out on this money for energy-efficient home improvements
