http://www.thisampersandthat.com, or This&That, is a personal blog. Any views or opinions expressed are my own, and not those of any person or organization I may or may not be affiliated with. If any affiliation exists, it will be stated explicitly. My thoughts and opinions may change over time as I learn more about what I blog about.

This blog includes links to other sites operated by third parties, with the intention of providing you easy access to information, products or other relevant information to what I’m blogging about. I am in no way responsible for the content, products or services found on other sites.

Your comments are not only welcome but encouraged! That said, insulting comments may be deleted, and any personal remarks and/ or attacks will be deleted. The same applies to off-topic comments; any comments found to link spam or act as marketing messages will be deleted.


My site uses affiliate links. If you choose to click an affiliate link in one of my posts and purchase the item, I do make a small profit. You should assume that if you click a link that takes you to an external site that I am being compensated, monetarily or non-monetarily. The decision to make a purchase, or not, is completely up to you.

I currently participate in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program intended to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. As an Amazon Associate participant, I earn a profit from qualifying purchases.

That said, again, any views or opinions expressed are my own. Any compensation will not influence content, topics or posts made in this blog.
