That’s ONE way to pay for a haircut!

I am so happy I have kids that are up on the “must have” ,”in gadgets”! Because they know all about these things they pass it along to me. I am truly amazed at technology…how far it’s come in a short time. Take mobile phones for example, remember the very large, bulky, expensive bag phones? We had one for our van, we thought it was the very best thing. Now they are so small, so convenient, and it is illegal to use them when driving.

This week was the first that I heard about “the square”. Maybe I am little behind but this little gadget is the neatest thing.

Andrew stopped by for a haircut on Tuesday. James did it for him and so Andrew wanted to give him $5. You know the “family rate” for haircuts 😀

So James said you can pay with your card. He got his square, put it in his iPhone, swiped the card, Andrew signed and Voila! Transaction complete in seconds as I watched(and took pictures) in awe. I honestly didn’t realize that something like this was available for home personal use.

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
