Neighbors are Moving

Our neighbors took a vacation to North Carolina a couple of weeks ago. It seems he is originally from there and she is from here. Her parents are not a bit happy about it as they found a great house in North Carolina and are planning to move there in 2 months. He has had a very serious back surgery and he feels the warmer weather 11 months out of the year instead of about 6 will do him a lot of good as far as pain is concerned. I wish them all the best in their move and hope they will be very happy there. I know the weather will sure be a lot better during the year than it is here in the midwest with about 6 months of cold and winter and lots of snow.

Skid Steer

If you are in the market for a new skid steer loader, then you know just how expensive they can be. They are great for most any kind of moving and loading. However, if you know you can get a good used skid steer and be confident that it will do the job for you, then how much better can it get? You can save a great deal of money by going to the right place on the Internet and checking them out. They furnish big pictures of the parts of their skid steer loaders with prices to help you decide which one is right for you. Check out the videos too to make sure you are getting what you expect.

Trick or Treat

The kids next door are all dressed up in their Halloween costumes. The town is having a special Trick and Treat parade for all the kids who want to participate. The parents take their kids to a starting point and then they walk 2 blocks down one side of the street and 2 blocks up the other side of the street. They get treats at each store that is participating. They really bring home a lot of nice things. The nursing home is going to have an hour on Halloween night for the kids to come and get treats. I think it will be fun for the patients there to see all the little children all dressed up.

Funny t-shirts

Everyone loves a good t-shirt. Many people buy them on vacation to show where they have been. Some buy their t-shirt because it is their favorite singer, sports star or something like that. If you are one of those who like funny t-shirts that is okay too. However, I am particular about the t-shirts I buy so I search the Internet to be sure I get just what I want. I like a big selection of t-shirts.


October is almost over and November is just around the corner. Another week and we will be changing our time back again. I wish they could just leave it alone. We haven't even got Halloween over with yet and the Trick and Treaters and they have Christmas decorations out in all the stores. The next big holiday is Thanksgiving and it almost gets lost in the shuffle. I think we all ought to slow down and enjoy each day as it comes.

Snow for Halloween?

It seems like only a few days ago I was hearing about all the snow that had fallen in Denver. It seems a bit early for that. I know it snows in the mountains earlier but now they are talking as much as 10" out east. It sounds like New York and all the eastern states are going to get blasted with snow. They call it a Noreaster storm. I have heard they can get quite bad. With wet heavy snow, many trees will probably come down along with the electric lines. It is way too early for this to happen before Halloween but we have had light snows in the Midwest at this time before. But nothing like 10" of snow.

Our Delayed Honeymoon

The Author of this post is Cheryl Martinez

After several years of trying to decide where we should go on our next vacation, we’ve finally narrowed it down to two places: the Eiffel Tower or France to rent out a private villa. You see, my husband and I never took an ‘official’ honeymoon. We were moving for my husband’s job when we first got married, and needed all the extra dollars and pennies we could find! So, we decided to start saving for our dream honeymoon that we could take later instead of putting ourselves in debt. I realize this is not how most of America lives, but we are so glad that we made that decision! Now we have finally saved enough money and feel good about going! Our house is safe and secure (I checked out adt security systems), and our bags are packed! Now the only thing we have to decide is where to go! Maybe both- it IS our honeymoon!

Cooking for One

I thought cooking for two was hard when our last child left home. However, now I am cooking for myself only and that is much harder. It is very hard to make any quantity of anything or you have to eat leftovers forever it seems. It is nice when others give you something to take home and it tastes so good for a change. This week, I had a great casserole and biscuits at my daughter's and she sent home a bowl of chili. It is so nice to have something new and different for lunch and I don't have to think about what I am going to fix.

Alcohol Rehab Treatment Centers

I have heard that alcoholism is genetic. I am not sure I believe that but it is possible, I guess. I have also heard that it is a disease and it definitely can be a fatal disease if let go. Often families step in and take over for their loved one and look into good alcohol rehab treatment centers where they can admit their loved one for treatment. It is very important to check them out and make sure they have a very experienced staff. The best centers keep up-to-date on new treatments and ways of helping those who can't stop drinking and can't help themselves. The best quality program is one that assists the alcoholic with a one on one program. Be sure you thoroughly investigate a rehab center for the best treatment before going into one or admitting a friend or relative.

Funeral Visitation

i lost another brother-in-law last week and we went down to the visitation. I would rather go to visitations than funerals as you can visit with the family more, or so it seems. The whole family is growing quite old so it seems funerals are becoming more and more frequent. He was 88 so he had a long life but the last 10 years were spent in a nursing home so that isn't much quality of life. He went in his sleep and I guess that would have to be the most peaceful way to go.

Youtube Downloader

We all love watching YouTube videos don't we? But how about using a youtube downloader to quickly download all your favorite videos to your computer. It is really simple and extremely fast. The best part of it all is that you can do this while you are watching the video. Check it out on the Internet and see just how quick and easy it is. It is free to download and it is safe to install on your computer so you do not have to worry about that. Why not try it right now and see just how quick and easy it is to download all your favorite videos and have them right at your fingertips any time you wish to watch them.

Roadside Assistance Club

If you love to travel, it is always a good idea to be a part of a roadside assistance club. You never know when you might break down and need assistance. It can be very expensive if you are out on your own without the protection of an assistance club to come to your rescue. Traveling and camping is such great fun but it can really put a damper on your travels if you have motor problems, or tire problems, and have no one to turn to. Check out the Internet like I did, and you will find that the cost is minimal per year to have this protection. It well worth it. That's for sure. It can put your mind at ease while traveling far from home, knowing there is help available if you should need it.

High School Graduate

I was a high school graduate in l951. Can you imagine that/ we had a 60th class reunion Saturday night in my home town. It was a lot of fun and there was a very good turnout. I was surprised at how much everyone aged in 10 years since the 50th class reunion. It really made a difference in most people. Many I didn't recognize at all. I hope to get down to more of the class luncheons they have inbetween the years. Time is going way too fast.

Beautiful Fall Weather

We are having the most beautiful Fall weather right now. Last week we had some terrific winds that blew down many trees in some places. But not it has settled down and the trees are turning all kinds of colors. I think they are turning fast and earlier and I hope that doesn't mean an early winter. I see on my calender that I wrote down that we had a bit of snow on Oct 9 and 12th last year. The farmers are out in full force with their combines, bringing in the crops as quickly as they can. It has been so dry, they have no problem getting out into the fields. It is 74 degrees today and supposed to be nice all week. We are going to enjoy every bit of it as it can change overnight around here. We have had some frost already but so far most of the flowers have made it through.
