    Greetings to all and I hope you have a warm and delicious Thanksgiving! It is time to gear up for the holiday season, when our friends an family come together to enjoy each other.  That will involve shopping, cooking, entertainment, travel and much more. 

    Thinking about the cost of all of that?  Perhaps that is where the "stressful" part of the holidays got their fame.  Not to worry, using today's Internet can assist you with keeping the costs down and save you time as a bonus.

    This month The On Ramp features a theme of Virtually Saving Money.  Included are tips for shopping, cooking, traveling, entertainment and more that will save you both time and money.  So relax, enjoy the holidays and let the Internet assist you!

    I hope you enjoy this edition of The On Ramp, and as always, I welcome your comments and additions to the newsletter! Please email me at
