Friday Financial Follies
Yep, it’s here again. My how time flies when you’re have’n fun! Wouldn’t you know, the news hasn’t changed much since the last follies-the big news that is. Apple and Amazon are killin’ it, aren’t they?
All that little stuff -news, stories and tidbits that we enjoy so much, we bring it to you, no charge!
Cool huh! (the answer is ‘way cool, Dean!’ )
Once again, we’ve found fun or enlightenment or both to share. At the MN household, we’ve been on an ‘improve our brain’ binge, and you’ll see evidence of that below.
Come along and enjoy our take on the week:

Heart failure is often due to a build up of scar tissue in heart muscles. At Duke University, scientists changed scar tissue into heart muscle without the use of stem cells. Early, but hopeful.
