Every thing today seems topsy turvy. The stock market is a mess. People are losing their life savings for retirement so quickly it is hard to imagine. Stocks dropped like rocks. Homes are being foreclosed because the people cannot pay their mortgages. Now if they had been thinking ahead, they would have invested some of their money in gold because it gains in value and keeps its value. It is not too late to start now, if you haven't already done so. Get on the Internet and contact this company where you can purchase and store safely also. They will be happy to assist you in every possible way. They are very experienced, having been in business since 1990.

Rain and Night Driving

I used to have an Aunt that traveled alot by car and she loved to drive. She said her favorite time to drive was at night in the rain. I would say that is my least favorite time to drive. It is hard to see the dividing lines between lanes when it is raining hard and the lights of the cars reflect funny on the wet windshield. I had to drive home in the rain last night about 25 miles and I do not like it. The rain has finally stopped this morning and I don't think it is supposed to rain until Monday. I am sure glad of that.


We are going to have 2 more grandchildren this year for Christmas. The girls are due almost the same day near Dec. 1. Our granddaughter and her husband have a little 17 month old daughter now. Our grandson and his wife have a little l7 month old son. And now they are both going to do it again. This will make our son-in-law and daughter double grandparents for the second time in 4 years. It is one for the books I think. Not only that but the grandson and granddaughter are twins and were married a week apart so they continue to do everything together it would appear. Such excitement.

Online Colleges

One thing is for sure. When you take courses to get your degrees or certifications or PHD's at online colleges it takes a great deal of stress out of your life. Over 24,000 students have enrolled and found that to be true last year. They enrolled from 45 other countries and 50 states because they knew this college is a fully accredited online university. Founded in 1993, it has continued to grow and so many have gotten their degrees and become excellent employees for their employers. Jeannie McGuire is a perfect example of such a student that obtained her Master's Degree here and went on to bigger and better things. She was just awarded the 2008 Sunny Andrews Award for her outstanding commitment to social work.

Taliban Militants Tighten Grip in Pakistan

Pushing out from a valley where the government has agreed to impose Islamic law and patrolling villages as close as 60 miles from the capital, Taliban militants have extended their grip in northwestern Pakistan.

Castro and Obama

Fidel Castro says President Barack Obama "misinterpreted" his brother Raul's remarks regarding the United States. He bristled at the suggestion that Cuba should free political prisoners or cut taxes on dollars people send to the island.

Raul Castro touched of a whirlwind of speculation last week that the U.S. and Cuba could be headed toward a thaw after nearly a half century of chilly relations. The speculation began when the Cuban president said leaders would be willing to sit down with their U.S. counterparts and discuss everything including human rights, freedom of the press and expression and political prisoners.

I have a great deal of arthritis in my feet and have to wear orthotics and New Balance 854 shoes all the time. I went today and got my yearly new pair. They are the latest 855 and the blue on them is very light blue instead of navy blue so they look so much more dressy. I like that as I have to wear them everywhere including church. They feel really good and don't even have to break them in. They have a rollbar in them which is important when your feet are in the shape mine are in. It always feels good to get a new pair of shoes and I use the old pair for mowing the lawn and yard work so if they get green from the fresh grass or muddy from the flower bed, I can leave them out in the garage and keep them for that purpose.

Spring Weather

It was just a beautiful Spring day today. The tulips are really coming up fast now with some warmer weather. We got the rain gauge put out so you know it is Spring. Have to fill up the finch feeders and get the hummingbird feeder set out. The orioles are around and we should see some soon. I saw a Bluejay yesterday and it was the first one I had seen here since we moved here nearly 9 years ago. Beautiful birds but ornery. Lots of little wrens picking around in the grass. My husband got the wire off around the lilac bush. It saves its life as the rabbits would chew off all the bark every winter.

Making Money

There are 10,000 ways to make money advertised on the Internet but it is very hard to decipher which are legitimate and which are not. People are taken in every day by various schemes that sound wonderful only to find they take your money and they are the ones making the money. Blogging is an easy way to make money. Find good legitimate companies and post for their advertisers. Several I have found pay regularly and it is fun to write about all the various products. I have learned a great deal since I started blogging.

Happy Birthday

We went out with my good friend last week to celebrate her birthday. I got her one of those 1950 Betty Crocker cookbooks because she has a large family and they really have big get togethers and make lots of food. She will get a lot of use out of it. You ought to see mine. It looks like it has been through a war. Pages all torn, cocoa on the favorite chocolate cake and I can't find all the index pages anymore. I have it held together by a huge rubber band, but I wouldn't trade that cookbook for all the new ones in the world. My grandmother gave me the cookbook when we got married and it got a workout the first week. I made my first pie and pie crust from that book because it had pictures showing you just how to roll it out and everything.

Search Engines

There is quite a bit of difference in search engines and the way they work. I am going to my brother's today and put a couple of new programs on his computer that will help him. At least I hope so. He has a new computer but has a great deal to learn yet.

He probably can teach me a few things too though, I bet. It is going to be a sunny day today with very little wind so it is a good day to go. He lives by a big lake and it is always windy there as it comes off the lake.
