BB awareness tip
Pay attention to everyone when you're entering and leaving an ATM machine. Though some ATMs require a bank card to enter the teller machine, there are others that only require you to press a button. Check the teller machine before you enter; some criminals have been known to await persons entering to carry out their transactions. Once inside, always use the safety latches to lock yourself in and keep other persons out. Once you've received and counted the cash, place the debit/credit card into your bag, along with any other personal documents. Sometimes, it's best to enter a store just for idle time to deter persons who might be trailing you.
Let's BB save
Try calling plans that save you money or help you cut back on how much you spend on phone calls monthly, for example, the $2.99 plan with LIME; it helps you to save money especially if you use your LIME mobile to call other networks locally and internationally. The only disadvantage you'll have is missing on out free texts and free minutes, but if you don't spend time sending text messages this plan will help you save money on calls.

Pic of the week
Did you know Alligator Pond is not only a great fishing village area, but also great for recreation? There is no fee to take a swim or relax on the banks, and the grounds are well kept, as well as equipped with lifeguards. Anesha Banton shared this information and photograph for 'Pic of the week'; another place to add to your summer visits.
