Puppy Love

As we were growing up, we had a number of puppies. They of course, grew up into dogs and we taught them tricks. We had one that pulled us down the long drive on our sled in the winter. We loved each one of them. Here is one of our little great grandsons with the dog he loves.

Ice Skating Without Skates

That is about what we feel like we are doing here in the frozen Midwest. We feel like we are ice skating without skates. We had a couple days of freezing rain on top of snow. That really made it slippery. Now we have had about 3 more days of rain but we have so much snow it doesn't seem to be going down any. I think it is going to be a long time till Spring and we see green grass again.

Secrets of Piano Accompaniment

When all your friends are gathered together and someone asks you to play the piano how do you feel? Are you embarrassed because you do not feel you are doing a good job of it? That is how I feel.

One of my friends will always ask me to play along with them while they sing and I do not feel that I am accomplished enough to do that. I want them to sound good and I want to do a good job of playing the piano along with their song but I am kind of at a loss as what to do.

I feel I need to check out the Internet to see if I can find a website that can show me hints on how to play along with the singer or with myself as I sing. I would just love to be able to throw in a few extra chords and spice up the music but I am not sure how to go about it.

They have the best pizza and salad bar and all the trimmings to go with broasted chicken besides. They will make us the pizza of our choice and also dessert cactus bread in apple or peach. Can't wait.

Best Sleep Aids

Have you ever gone to the store and checked out sleeping pills? There are so many to choose from and which are the best? Is it better to go to your doctor and get a prescription so that you can get the best sleep aids, or should you just take a chance and try one off the shelf of the store? It is my opinion that you can research the Internet for a great deal of information on safe aids for sleeping. You can find out how they research them for ingredients, safety and often customer evaluations. I feel this is a great idea to find the best ones.

Quick Weight Loss Diet

If you are like me, you want to lose your excess weight that you gained over the Holidays. You want to lose it and lose it fast, right? Just give me a good strong diet pill and turn me loose. Well, actually that is not the right quick weight loss diet plan. You need to exercise, eat a sensible diet and take the right product to do the job for you. That is why I checked out the Internet to see what the proper way is to lose my unwanted weight. I am glad I did.

Sleeping Pills

Do you toss and turn at night, unable to get a good night's sleep? Have you tried sleeping pills that were not effective. I had a family member that walked in his sleep and it was because of the pills he was taking. He injured himself in his sleep and that was not good. I decided right then to look up his pills on the Internet and see the safety factors. I found I could find just what pills had been researched and were recommended by experts. If you need pills to sleep, it is my opinion that you should do the research before taking any.

Human Growth Hormone Facts

I have heard that one way to counteract the effects of aging are to take certain hormones. I thought it best to look up the human growth hormone facts on the Internet . I feel it is always a good idea to research anything that you put into your body to be sure it is safe as well as effective. On the Internet, you are able to find those that have been thoroughly studied for safety and effectiveness. If you are interested in hormone therapy, it is my opinion that you research it first, as well.

Best Acne Products

I saw a girl the other day that apparently had a bad case of acne when she was young. I felt bad for her and wondered if she had used the best acne products available to her. I decided to check out the Internet and see what companies had to say about such products. I found that companies do check out everything from effectiveness to side effects. I wish she had done this and perhaps she would have had much better results from her acne treatment.

Veterans Administration

We have an early morning appointment today at the V.A. My husband is a Veteran. He goes to the doctor for his prescriptions and checkups. He had a PSA blood test last week and will get the results today. Then he will see the nurse and doctor. They also have live TV from the pharmacy out of town so he can talk with the pharmacist. It is interesting.

Cheap Automobile Insurance

My son has three sons. They are all driving cars and are teenagers. He has found that due to their young ages, that his automobile insurance bill is really high. This makes quite a bite out of his budget every month.

He is quite experienced in shopping the Internet so he gets online to see where he can get the best deals. With three students driving, he really needs to do his best to find good auto insurance but also cheap auto insurance. He finds it easy to fill out a form on the Internet and get quick quotes and that is what he needs.

Every car they own has to have at least liability insurance and that alone is costly. He also has to shop for cheap collision insurance, as well, for his vehicle and his wife's van.
