Nowadays companies are finding ways to save money. Delaware has this incentive program called Energy Efficiency Investment Fund (EEIF) which saves money on electric bill and maintenance and good for the environment. Sounds good to you?

To date, 95 buildings in Delaware met various LEED standards or are fully LEED certified.
Participants of this program are for non-residential entities that pay Public Utility Tax. To find out if you are eligible for this program, you must submit a copy of the electric or natural gas bill with the EEIF

Longwood Gardens

Visiting Delaware and looking for a day trip?  Longwood Gardens is a great destination not to be missed.  It is located just north of Delaware in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.

In addition to its amazing plants, gardens & fountains, Longwood Gardens offers on-site dining, and a variety of music and entertainment events.  They’ve even recently added a Beer Garden! 

My family has a tradition of visiting yearly in the summer.  We’ll eat at the café, spend some time strolling around to view the sights, and then enjoy the evening performance (Fiddler on the Roof this year) at the open air theater.

It’s really a beautiful place to spend the day!

College Students and Credit Cards

In a little over a month, schools will be back in session. For those students and parents who are preparing for that first year of college, they have to make a decision whether the student should have a credit card
Obviously, a credit card for a college student has its pros and cons. It can be an excellent way of building credit, but it can also be a means of building significant debt.
If the student does build up a larger than expected balance on the card, the parent could take the card away or enroll their student in a credit card debt assistance program. Enrollment in such a program could teach the student the value of good credit and also the problems caused by using a credit card foolishly.
As you can see, both the parents and the student must make a very important decision on having a credit card issued to a college student.

Summer vacation is half over.  Are your children complaining of boredom?  Is it too hot to play outdoors?

Why not take them to an air-conditioned museum.

There are several in Delaware that children will enjoy.  My favorite is the Delaware Museum of Natural History in Greenville, Delaware.  The dinosaur exhibits are excellent.  They also have a small child area where the children can touch and hold small live animals.  They have face painting too.

There is also the Delaware Children’s Museum in Wilmington, Delaware.  Check out their calendar on their website.  They have new activities every day.

Finally, if your children are interested in airplanes, visit the Air Mobility Command Museum in Dover, Delaware.    Children can learn about old war planes and are allowed to walk inside the planes.  They also have an exhibit that the children can sit in and pretend to fly.

So next time your children say “I’m bored”, hop in your car and drive to a local museum in Delaware.
