Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there.

“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.”

Attributed to Mark Twain (among others)

Factoid: When is the best time to buy airfare? Generally, the sweet spot is four to six weeks before you travel. Prices are highest eight to 10 weeks and two to three weeks in advance.

Now on to this week’s sites. This week, I’m sending out two ‘Site of the Week’ recommendations.

Redweek.com
http://www.redweek.com/

Summer is almost here! If your plans include going somewhere on vacation, but you haven’t made those plans yet, this site may be for you. Redweek.com is an exchange for timeshare owners and travelers to connect. The site features detailed resort information including ratings and reviews for thousands of timeshare rental and resale postings. Redweek.com is the largest online timeshare site with over 1.5 million registered users.

Social Security Timing

If you’re approaching retirement age, this site should be of interest. For married couples, there are nearly 100 combinations of benefit choices. This site features a free calculator that asks just a few questions and then recommends a few strategies that can maximize your benefits. Although the calculator is free, not surprisingly they encourage you to contact one of their advisors.

Ernie Orr sez “Check em out!”
