Our Dog Holly

We just love our little dog Holly. She is a Boston Terrier and is over 12 years old now. We hate to see her aging and feel she will be our last dog. It is hard to get a dog sitter if you want to go away for longer than a few hours. However, we have a great neighbor that is willing to come over whenever we call her. Here she is enjoying some new dog food we got for her.
Holly enjoying her Nutrish

She really likes it and can't wait till we feed her.

Bake me a Cake

Here is the future baker of America. He has his baker's hat on and is ready to go. I hope he can make me a delicious chocolate cake. I have been hungry for one. He is ready and willing with his little kitchen to make all kinds of goodies to eat. He's having a lot of fun.

Leave Your Home Secure

Coffee in the morning.

Thanks for the guest post by Kristofer Bartlett

Nothing to me is better than going to the bookstore and having a great cup of coffee. I simply set the home alarm system (adt san francisco) at home and head out for the entire day, coming back later at night when I'm about to go to bed. Many people do not realize that when you read, study, or even play games or work online that coffee can help you a great deal. It speeds up your mind to incredible speeds and helps you to focus and think faster. I love cinnamon swirl coffee the best because it smells lovely, is not too sweet, and fills me with warmth on a cold day. I also love mocha coffee in either caramel or raspberry due to the ! massive amount of sweetness in it.

It gets very cold in Alaska and sometimes it is better to go out into the bookstores instead of being miserable at home. Even if I get sick I know that I can simply walk or take a bus, or even a cab, to the bookshop and stay up there as long as I want, even until they close. Most of the time I read and play games, but at other times I will study for exams and chat with my friends who work there. This is one of my favorite pastimes and I am frequently seen at many shops.

Jesus is Lord - Celebrate Easter

He was the Greatest man in history, named Jesus, had no servants, yet they called him Master. Had no degree, yet they called him Teacher. Had no medicines, yet they called him Healer. He had no Army, yet Kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet he conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him. He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today. He is risen and sitting at the right hand of God interceding for those who have repented and accepted him into their hearts. He fills the void in your heart that you tried to fill with all the world has to offer and you were still discontented. Everything we buy to make us happy fades after awhile and we start looking for something else. With Jesus in your heart, you aren't looking for more to fill that void, you have peace and contentment and a joy unspeakable and full of Glory.

Topamax Lawsuit

Have you heard about the Topamax lawsuit? It would appear that mothers using Topamax while pregnant may have delivered babies with cleft palate or cleft lip. In many cases studied, this seems to be a bad side effect of this drug. If you have suffered the shock of delivering your beautiful baby with such a congenital deformity, it may be to your advantage to contact O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers – 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701 – 512-494-9949. They are expert attorneys that may decide that your baby's deformity could have been caused from this drug and not from anything you may have done while pregnant. You will find them understanding and will give you a free consultation. They may also be able to obtain some compensation for you after investigating your case.

Frozen Bread and Rolls

Have you ever let frozen bread thaw and rise? It tastes just like homemade bread when it is baked. However, you do not have to do all the hard work of making the bread. Frozen cinnamon rolls are great too. I knew a lady who was known for her wonderful cinnamon rolls. I found out when she died that she always used frozen ones from the store. What a shock that was. I thought "I can do that". The next time I need some cinnamon rolls for something special, I will buy the frozen ones in the store :0)

Quick Easy Supper

Making a roast for supper is one of the easiest meals I can make. I brown a nice roast and put it in the crockpot. Set it on low and a few hours later, add onion, carrots and potatoes. The house always smells as wonderful as the food tastes. You can't beat the gravy you make from it. It is easy cleanup too after supper because you don't have lots of pots and pans to clean. I am planning to make one for Sunday night. Thinking about it makes me hungry :0)

Cosmetology School

Are you thinking about a career or perhaps a new career? Then perhaps you should consider cosmetology school. Regency was founded over 50 years ago and they are growing and expanding all the time. You can find their campuses in 19 states and they are really upscale schools. You are able to interact with the public while learning cosmetology which is invaluable training. They also have placement relationships so that you may choose to work on a cruise ship, for example. Or perhaps you would choose a salon or working with models on a runway. It sounds very exciting to me. My niece is a cosmetologist and she just loves it. If you are leaning toward cosmetology, there is no time like the present to look into these fine schools.

This blog post was based on information provided by Blogitive. For more information, please visit or contact Regency Beauty Institute – 7100 Northland Circle, Suite 312 – Brooklyn Park, MN 55428

Tired Little Boy

This little guy started walking just awhile ago. He was one year old a few months ago. He has learned he can climb up on almost anything. That is enough to keep a Mom busy as though she didn't have enough to do already. He and his 3 year old brother play together so well. You can see he has been having a good time and is ready for his nap.

Supper Out

Just got back from the Pizza Ranch and boy was it good!!! I had two of the newer pizzas and salad bar. We had peach Cactus Bread for dessert. My husband always has broasted chicken legs, mashed potatoes and gravy. Tonight they had green beans for a change and they always have macaroni and cheese for the kids too. You always have plenty of tasty food to choose from there. It is close to home too.

Topamax Lawsuit

What could be more heartbreaking than delivering your newborn baby and finding out that he or she has a cleft palate or cleft lip? It is even worse to think that perhaps a medication you took may possibly have caused this congenital deformity. It means surgery for your child and added expense that is often very hard on you. By contacting O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers – 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701 – 512-494-9949 they will be happy to give you a free consultation in regard to a Topamax lawsuit. They may be able to assist you in obtaining some compensation, as well. They understand that it may not be your fault, but the fault of the Topamax you took before the birth of your child. It appears they have found serious side effects of this drug, although it has been helpful for several things such as seizures or migraines. It is a good idea to look into it.

Best Friends

These two little brothers are the best of friends. I hope they will always continue to be close as they grow up. They have such good times together. They are 2 years apart and that is just about right. The youngest is walking now and having a great time with his big brother. It is so much fun watching them growing up.

Cold Weather

It is no time to remove the sheet blankets from the bed yet. One night it is so warm, you have windows open and almost sleep on top of the covers. Then just like that, the temperatures drop and you pull the blankets up around your neck to stay warm. The furnace did get a rest for a few days but it was short lived. It is good weather to have something baking in the oven. It helps heat the whole house and smells good too.

Colonetix Reviews

There are so many things that we do to keep our bodies in the best healthy physical condition possible. We watch what we eat, we exercise, we often take vitamins and various supplements to keep ourselves healthy. However, have you ever thought about colon cleansing. By using a good colon cleanser and reading up on colonetix reviews you may be pleasantly surprised to learn what a good idea it is to cleanse your colon. It is amazing how much of a difference it may make in your body. Our colons collect all sorts of things and not all of it is expelled as it should be. That is why it is important to cleanse your colon with a good cleanser. We did this a couple of years ago and feel we should do it again as it was surprising how it improved your colon health. By reading others opinions, it certainly helps to learn more about it.

Anniversary Supper

We had our belated anniversary supper tonight. Good friends took us to a new Mexican restaurant about 20 miles from home. We had some really good food and fellowship. Tried a new stir fry type platter that was excellent and have enough for lunch tomorrow. Weather was perfect, 70 degrees and lots of sunshine. We love Mexican food and will be going again one of these days to another favorite Mexican restaurant we especially love above all the rest.

Humidifiers are wonderful. We would not be without a humidifier as the moist air holds the heat better and makes the house so much warmer in winter. There are many other good reasons to have humidifiers. There are many styles of humifiers, both warm and cool mist. They help with dry skin, asthma and even sinus headaches. I prefer the one with digital controls so that we can monitor the humidity in our home and keep it at a uniform level. It is also great to have one that is easy to clean and keep clean. In looking for a new humidifier, I checked out the Internet and found a number of them could be sent to us by free shipping.

Small Business Phone System

I know if you are a small business, a phone system is one of your biggest expenses. However, now there is a solution to save you all that stress of installation of a phone system and save you money, as well. In checking the Internet, I ran across the small business phone system which would indeed be the answer for any small business. The costs are exceptionally low and there are no contracts. Not only that but it is easy to use and you can invest more in your business with the savings. There is even a contest to Win A Free Phonebooth for a year if you purchase a phonebooth before April 30, 2011 and you will be automatically entered.

Doing Dishes

Mom and Dad can always use an extra helping hand around the house. You just can't start too young to teach them the various chores around the house. Here you see our grandson teaching his son how to do dishes. He can be a big help to his Mom as he grows up. And I have a feeling his little brother will get a chance to learn how to do dishes too. It looks like he is doing a fine job of it.

Happy Easter Store

It is almost Easter time. It is just around the corner and time to start thinking about buying those Easter baskets for all the grandkids. You want something unique and you are sure to find it at the Happy Easter store. In checking the Internet I found a wonder selection of Easter gifts sure to please any child and their parents too. You may even decide to purchase several of these wonderful gifts for yourself. Don't forget to check out the personalized Easter gifts and the Easter candies, as well.

Cupcake Gift Basket

Mother's Day is getting close. Why not surprise your mother with a delicious cupcake gift basket? There are a number of delicious cupcakes to choose from. The red velvet cupcakes are so beautiful. However, there are a number of choices and sizes to choose from containing chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, as well. I think the sampler of all the cupcakes, red, chocolate and vanilla would be just superior. You can also indulge yourself with these delectable cupcakes, shipped right to your door.

Mrs. Fields Cookies

I feel like most everyone has heard of mrs fields cookies and how delicious they are. There are so many varieties that are so good and did you know that you can have them delivered right to your door. If you check out the Internet, you will find many kinds and many ways they can be given as gifts, sent right to your friends and/or family. And of course, you will want to order plenty for yourself. No one can resist these wonderful tasty cookies, at least I can't.

Little Farmer

This little guy and his brother live on an acreage now. He is practicing for when he grows up and is able to mow the lawn with his Mom and Dad. He just loves the farm and now that it is nice weather, he and his brother can get outside and enjoy all the room they have to play in. A farm is a great place to raise kids.

Contemporary Furniture

Spring is here and are you looking around your home and thinking you need a big change inside as well as the world changing outside? How old is your furniture? If it is like mine, it has been around for quite awhile. I think it is time to start looking for some good looking contemporary furniture to brighten up my home and my moral as well. It has been a long hard winter and looking at all the gorgeous new furniture available has really gotten me excited. I found there is an online catalog and they also have in-home consultation to help me with my decisions. There are so many new and exciting colors for Spring.

Czech Glass Beads

Much beautiful jewelry is made out of czech glass beads. They come in so many fabulous colors and shapes. Perhaps you are a crafty person and love to make your own necklaces and earrings out of beads. There is no limit to what you can do with these beautiful beads and I am sure you are the envy of many of your friends. Or, if you are thinking of making beading a hobby, then you would love these beads and not only that but the tools and much more to begin beading projects.

School Backpack

All students carry backpacks these days. Additionally, many adults hiking, in sports, and many other occasions, want a good backpack. As a student, their school backpack is a very important part of their lives. They carry everything from books to extra clothes to food in them. Everyone wants a good functional backpack and a good looking one, as well. In checking the Internet, I found a great selection of many designs and also many good prices for the backpacks. You can choose from a large number of different colors and designs as well.

Gas Prices Rising

The gas prices are sure going up. No matter how you try, it is really hard to keep your gas usage down. I need to run and get the mail so will probably go to the station and see if it went up again today. It was 16 cents less in the larger town about 20 miles from us. I do not know why there has to be such a difference in the gas prices. If all the environmental nuts would let the USA drill, we could be having cheap gas and selling oil to other countries and our country wouldn't be in such debt.

Hair Loss Products

My husband has been losing his hair over the years, much to his dismay. We have seen a number of hair loss products advertised but how do you know if they will work or not. It costs a lot of money to try a product, only to find out that it does not live up to its claims. It is really heartbreaking when you get your hopes up and think that something is really going to stop your hair loss. We found it was best to check out the Internet and find someone who had checked out the many products to find out if they really work. Then they recommend the top ones that they have studied over the years to find out which are really best. That is certainly a great help when you are shopping for a hair loss product.

Creatine Supplements

We all want to work out and build up our muscles so the gals will take a second look when they see us Therefore, we lift weights and often take creatine supplements to help us with endurance and energy in our muscles. But do they all work? It is best to check out companies who have evaluated these supplements to see if they are even really safe to use. Are there any side effects? What are the long term results? Do they really contain the best quality ingredients to do the job. Reading Customer reviews is always a great way to find out how others feel about a product before you use it yourself.

Oxelite Pro Side Effects

We are bombarded almost daily with new weight loss drugs. They all make these wonderful claims that make you want to run out and buy them quick and get started burning fat. However, oxyelite pro side effects make you sit up and take notice. I am so glad there are companies who thoroughly research these new products for ingredients and safety because this one sees to have to real value as far as losing weight. It does contain caffeine which should kick up your metabolism and get that fat burning, however, it doesn't contain enough to even do that. Besides that, there are no other ingredients that will really help you lose weight. Check out the Customer reviews before you buy this diet drug.

Let's Go Fishing

It is never too young to teach your children the joys of fishing. Here a Mom is having a good time with her little boy playing in a play boat, pretending to fish. Fishing has always been a fond habit of my husband and he has taken several of the grandsons fishing when they were younger. They always had a good time. It is always exciting when you catch that first fish. Then I think you are hooked for life on fishing :0)


When you are suffering from acne, you wish to do everything you possibly can to improve the health of your skin. That means using a product that will eliminate bacteria and use natural ingredients to improve the condition of your skin. A product such as therapores may be just what you need to accomplish this. It is always good to read reviews to see what others think of the various products available on the market today and you can also read the reviews on this product too. we have learned so much about using natural ingredients vs all the chemicals to help make our skin smooth and beautiful. It is good to investigate the pros and cons of therapores and see if it is the product for you.

It is definitely that time of the year to start thinking of losing that excess winter fat you put on over the Holidays. There was a lot of good meals and being inside, people tend to cook more good comfort food and the pounds just seem to add up. Of course, the next step is to get a good diet drug and I have heard so much about Hydroxycut that I thought I should check out and see if what they claim is all true. I didn't realize they make several products and some may not be suited to you in particular. It is always a good idea to do your investigating before you just go out and buy the first thing off the shelf.

Cell Booster Home

Sometimes you cannot always get the best reception on your cell phone. But I found that if I had a cell booster home unit, I could boost the cellular signal of my cell phone and it works much better. In searching the Internet, I found that you can buy them at quite a reasonable price and they are well worth it. I could also save a great deal of money which really helps me out on my budget. I always love saving money and shopping the Internet is a great way to do it.

Black Ink Cartridges

My printer is important to me. I like to print off a great many articles and also emails. Because I do a lot of printing I use mostly black ink cartridges. I always search the Internet to find the best prices to help with my budget. While I am looking for the best ink cartridges, I also read any customer reviews that are available. That way I know I am getting the best for the money. There is a considerable difference in price of cartridges so I do quite a lot of shopping around on the Internet to find the best cartridges and the best buys on them.

Eating Lunch

Here is one of our little great grandsons enjoying his lunch. They don't care how much they get on their face just so some of it makes it into their mouth :0) He is a real good eater with a good appetite, as you can see. He is growing up so fast now. He walks all over and has had a chance to walk in the grass for the first time now that the weather has gotten warmer. He's so much fun.

E Cig

There has been much debate over people smoking in various places. Non smokers are up in arms all the time it seems to take away more and more choices for a smoker to smoke. Now you can smoke ane cig. Yes, electronic cigarettes are becoming very popular. You can smoke with the taste of your cigarette but you will not be causing any offensive smoke for others around you. Unbelievable you say? No, with these cigarettes, you can return to smoking in some places that have banned smoking. Isn't that great? They omit a vapor that is clean and harmless. No more cigarette butts to throw away and no messy ash either.

Grandma Reads a Book

Here is Grandma reading a good book to her two little grandsons. They are delighted to spend some time with their grandma and she is just as happy to be spending time with them. These are the moments they will remember as they grow up. The happy times they spent with their grandma will always be remembered as they get older. This is time well spent for any grandma for she is making memories with the boys.

Disability Appeal

Ae you disabled and frustrated by the paperwork trying to make out your disability appeal? Is it taking you a long time to get your paperwork through and in the meantime you are suffering financially? You need a company with 25 years of experience working for you. You will find that your applications will go through much more quickly with their assistance. They have excellent results and that is what you need. If you do not receive your Social Security disability insurance benefits, then there will be no fee charged by them. But more likely, it will go through and much more quickly and you will be able to relax and stop the stress of trying so hard to get your approval through the system.

Tech Jobs

Many people are seeking new careers these days. Perhaps you are tired of your same old same old job. Going to work has become a drudgery instead of a delight.

You are also able to do a search for a particular tech job. You can gather all the information you need right in the privacy of your own home.
