The TRICARE benefits walk-in service center at Robins Air Force Base is closing Tuesday, the base says.

TRICARE is the Defense Department health care program. According to its website,Tricare covers about 9.6 million active- duty service members, National Guard and Reserve members, retirees, their families and survivors.

The Department of Defense is closing all of its service centers nationwide to save an estimated $250 million over the next five years.

There's An App for That: Evernote

There's An App for That: Evernote

Evernote has become one of my favorite apps. I use it to store all kinds of information that I will want to retrieve later, things such as a great recipe from a friend, screenshots of other websites I am inspired by as I revamp my own website, and quotes that I want to remember. Basically Evernote is now my go-to spot to save anything I am going to need later.
