Well it's holiday time and we're in our first (purchased) home. One thing I was taught (or learned) is to recognize (and reward) your service people around this time of year. By service people I mean, your mail person, your garbage-person, etc. Anyone who does a constant service for you. For me, it's going to be a small cash "tip" ($10) and some home-made cookies. My wife has never heard of such a thing. Am I really out there with this?
