    4 Great Tips for Parents Who Kids Are Apartment Hunting

    It’s been almost 25 years since I graduated high school. One of the first things I wanted to do is get my own place. We all are in a hurry to become adults until we get responsibilities and that change drastically. You go from living at home with no bills to having to pay everything on your own.

My plans went out the window and ended up staying home 3 more years after high school. My future wife…

    Atlanta Hawks 2020 Free Agency Spending Spree Thoughts

    The Atlanta Hawks were arguably the most aggressive team when it came to free agency. With Trae Young being one of the up-and-coming stars in the league, Atlanta needed to make some moves. If you follow Trae on any of his social media pages, you know he wants to win. Next year, the Hawks can offer Young his max deal, but they must decide what to do with John Collins. Collins has stated he wants a max deal, but it seems like the Hawks aren’t thinking about it. Atlanta spent a lot of money and one has to wonder if the Hawks are looking to trade John Collins?

    Try Roadie When Sending Game Day Items to Friends or Family

College football and NFL are in the midst of their season with some players here and there testing positive for Covid-19. Despite all of that, I’m just happy to have football back even though there are limited to no fans allowed. During these times, we miss hanging out with friends watching the…

So, let’s see today how to choose the right lawyer for your personal injury case in Georgia. 1. Make the Difference between Dabblers and…
