What Other Bloggers Are Saying #14

Did you know that a Canadian goose can break your leg with their wing?  After walking around the nearby park I found out that geese can get pretty sensitive if you don’t feed them the bread that you brought for the ducks.  For readers that are wondering what a goose will do when they are about to attack…  They will hiss and raise their wings, kind of like the picture to the left.  Imagine seeing that coming at you during your walk!

It’s the end of August and I can’t believe that the summer months are past us and autumn is about to begin.  With that, we are getting close to our 6 month anniversary here at My University Money!

We wish to remind everyone about our First Annual Scholarship Contest and to get their entries submitted so we don’t have to stay up all night judging articles before the deadline!
