By contract, Sony expects to sell 10 million LCD TVs this fiscal year through March, up from 6.3 million the previous year.

Credit Card Applications

When it comes to getting a new credit card, there seem to be a million of them. Every week, the mail is full of pre-approved credit card offers and so far none of them have looked good to me. I found I could go to the Internet to this website Credit Card Applications and I could apply right online securely without worry of someone getting my private information. I could search through all kinds of credit cards and they even had those cards for those with bad credit. I was looking for low interest cards but also wanted to get some benefits like cash back would be good. They even have some with airline miles and of course you can pick the one that gives you the best deal on 0% on balance transfers. I didn't have any problem finding a card I needed at this site because they have so many to look through and find the one that fit me best. If you are in need of a new credit card or just a credit card because your credit isn't the best, check into their site. I know they will have one for you.

They were killed by Palestinian gunmen, but before they died, they managed to fire back at their assailants and kill one of them. A second Palestinian assailant was seriously wounded in the firefight according to the army. A woman who was with the two Israelis but escaped unharmed told Israel Radio they had been hiking in the hills outside the Palestinian town of Hebron and not far from the Jewish settlement of Kiryat Arba where all three lived. They were approached by a jeep carrying a group of Palestinian gunmen who fired at them, said the woman.

Iraqi Cabinet

Iraq's Cabinet approved the draft of a general amnesty bill for detainees being held in Iraqi prisons, a measure which could go a long way toward reconciling Iraq's warring sects and factions. But the measure will not be brought to parliament for debate until March at the earliest. Many key draft laws, including measures to share oil revenue and to allow some members of Saddam Hussein's Baath party to hold government jobs, have remained mired for months in Iraq's gridlocked parliament. There was no immediate reaction from Sunni lawmakers who have in the past called for such a bill.

U.S. Troops in Baghdad

U.S. forces said they waged successful battles against both Sunni and Shiite extremists and announced Thursday they had seized two men possibly linked to the capture of three American soldiers earlier this year.

Asteroid Could Collide with Red Planet

There is a newly discovered hunk of space rock that has a 1 in 75 chance of slamming into Mars on January 30, according to some scientists. These odds are extremely unusual. They frequently work with really long odds when they track threatening asteroids, said one of the astronomers with the Near Earth Object Program at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The asteroid, known as 2007 WD5, was discovered in late November and is similar in size to an object that hit remote central Siberia in l908, unleashing energy equivalent to a 15-megaton nuclear bomb and wiping out 60 million trees

Computers are a wonderful invention when they work properly. Mine isn't working just right at the present time and it is connected to my printer so I can't print anything either.

I am sure glad I have it for a backup as it has been very helpful for me.

Medieval Diets Far More Healthy

Medieval humans may have enjoyed healthier lifestyles than their decendants today because they managed to survive plagues and pestilences. Their low-fat, vegetable rich diet, washed down by weak ale, was far better for the heart than today's starchy, processed foods according to one General Practitioner. Even though they ate more, they burned off calories in a workout of 12 hours labor each day. Life was tough then.


Duke is playing Pittsburgh tonight and the last time I looked it was tied up twice. My husband is a great fan of all basketball and football games but he doesn't really care much for baseball.

It seems there are so many more sports today than there was some years ago.

We have a very thick bad fog outside tonight. It makes for very dangerous driving conditions and the drivers do not slow down around here. They just keep going just as if it was clear. It is just like out in California. We used to live there and you could see the fog coming and we tried to outrun it one night to get home and we didn't make it. And it was the worst thickest fog I ever saw. Well tonight here in the midwest it is competing with the California fog because it is really thick and besides that it is very cold outside. I hope everyone drives carefully.

"Bubble Boy" Develops Leukaemia

One of the boys with no immune system being treated with pioneering gene therapy at Great Ormond Street in London has developed leukaemia according to his doctors. They said they had been braced for this as cancer was an acknowledged risk of this treatment for X-SCID, commonly known as boy in the bubble syndrome. A trial in France of a similar therapy was halted in 2002 after four of eleven children developed leukaemia. So far ten children have been treated at the London hospital.

Have you notice the big rise in groceries? It seems like almost everything has gone up $1. Cereal is really getting high priced and now they are talking of using lots more of our corn for ethanol and that prices will rise more on groceries. The amount of gas they make is really a small percentage of all the gas Americans use so I am not sure it is such a good idea to use so much corn for that instead of food.

Americans Look To Jesus for Diet

Five loaves, two fish and a goblet of red wine could be on the menu for Americans if a new diet takes off.Don Colbert, a Florida doctor, believes asking yourself "What would Jesus eat?" is the best way to stay fit,slim and trim. In his book, which gets its title from this question, he explores some of the Old Testament dietary laws and looks at foods mentioned in the Bible.He says that if you truly want to follow Jesus in every area of your life, you cannot ignore your eating habits. The health of Americans, as we know, is going downhill and it is largely due to our bad food choices. There is an obesity epidemic.

Huge Hurricane Rages On Saturn

A hurricane-like storm, two-thirds the diameter of Earth, is raging on Saturn's south pole. New Images from Nasa's Cassini space probe reveal this. Measuring 5,000 miles across, the storm is the first hurricane ever detected on a planet other than Earth. Scientists say the storm has the eye and eye-wall clouds characteristic of a hurricane and its winds are swirling clockwise at 350 mph. It looks like a hurricane, but it doesn't behave like a hurricane. So whatever it is, they are going to focus on the eye of this storm and find out why it is there. Interesting, isn't it?

Obesity Fight - New thinking

There is a call to rethink the obesity fight. It cannot be tackled by just encouraging healthier eating and more exercise according to health experts. These experts, led by a London based academic, says governments should adopt more sophisticated approaches to obesity.

Latest statistics show that a quarter of adults are obese in the UK, but the percentage is predicted to rise to over 50% if current trends continue. They are epidemic in the United States, as well, and that includes children.

Our granddaughter turned 30 on the 13th and my little sister turned 63 on the 15th. It is hard to believe so many years have passed us by so fast. I had a very good visit with my brother on Saturday. I don't get to just sit down and visit very often and it was a great day to do it. Also went to my 89 year old friend, Rose's on Sunday afternoon and sat and had tea with her and we visited about the olden days. She remembers a lot about those days. She was sure glad to see me.

Christmas Coffee

I am going to our Pastors' house this morning for a Christmas coffee. We are each to bring a dozen Christmas cookies for a cookie exchange. That will be fun as we will each bring home a dozen different cookies. I don't bake a lot anymore because we just don't need to eat all those sweets and I am trying my best to stay away from them as much as possible. But it isn't always easy and once in a while you just have to have some goodies. This time of year doesn't last long and then it is another year before it happens again but it seems to come around faster and faster every year.

John Lennon's Hair

A lock of John Lennon's hair sold for $48,000 Wednesday in an auction of Beatles' memorabilia collected by the band's hairdresser. The hair - inside an autographed copy of Lennon's book "A Spaniard in the Works" - sold to an unnamed telephone bidder. Goringes auction house had estimated the hair would sell for $4,000 to $6,000. Lennon gave the book and the lock of hair to Betty Glasow, the Fab Four's hairdresser during their heyday. He wrote in the book, "To Betty, Lots of Love and Hair, John Lennon xxx" It is astonishing that there is still so much interest in the Beatles and the sale goes to prove that John Lennon is still an icon, said Francesca Collin, a spokeswoman for Gorringes. "To have some of Lennon's hair along with a signed note from him really does give it fantastic provenance and authenticity." Collin said. Glasow decided to sell the items because she wanted fans to have them.

Chicken and Fish Fry

We went to the fish fry tonight and the fish was extra good. Had a new coating on it and was crunchy and really good.

They had beets tonight which was different and also chicken and noodles instead of beef and noodles. It is a really good meal for a very good price and lots of people go there every Friday night. Tomorrow I go to our Pastors in the morning for Christmas coffee and Christmas cookies. Everyone is bringing a dozen to share. I think that will be fun. I am looking forward to it.

Ike Turner, US Soul Musician Dies

US soul legend, Ike Turner, the former husband of Tina Turner has died at the age of 76. He died at his home near San Diego, California. There was no immediate word on the cause of death. He rose to fame in the l960s, and is best remembered for his musical partnership and stormy marriage with Tina Turner. She said he abused her, but he somewhat rehabilitated his image in his later years, winning a Grammy in 2007. Scott Hanover, an official at the performer's management company made the announcement that "Ike Turner passed away this morning. He was at his home." Turner, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, is credited by many music historians with making the first rock 'n' roll record in l951. Turner was also known as a prolific session guitarist and piano player. After marrying Tina Turner in 1959, the pair produced a string of hits, including A Fool In Love, It's Gonna Work Out Fine. The song River Deep Mountain High, produced by Phil Spector, was one of their most successful singles. But Mr. Turner will be forever remembered for his turbulent relationship with Tina Turner, the BBC's Peter Bowes in Los Angeles says.

Arctic Summers Ice-free by 2013

Scientists in the US have presented one of the most dramatic forecasts yet for the disappearance of Arctic sea ice. Their latest modeling studies indicate northern polar waters could be ice-free in summers within just 5-6 years. Professor Wieslaw Maslowski told an American Geophysical Union meeting that previous projections had underestimated the processes now driving ice loss. Summer melting this year reduced the ice cover to 4.13 million square km, the smallest ever extent in modern times. Remarkably, this stunning low point was not even incorporated into the model runs of the Professor and his team, which used data sets from 1979 to 2004 to constrain their future projections.

Bond Fund Manager Wants Fed to Lower Rate

Bill Gross, manager of the world's biggest bond fund, said the Federal reserve should lower the rate it charges banks for direct loans by a greater amount than it cuts the overnight rate when policymakers meet next week. He says he is hopeful for a 50-basis-point cut of the discount rate. Lending between banks will be assisted by cutting the discount rate to a level where there is potential to make money by going to the discount window and lending money at the London Interbank Offered Rate for a three-month contract. At 5 percent, the discount rate is half a percentage point more than the Fed's target for overnight loans between banks. The central bank has lowered the discount rate three times since August as a contraction in credit markets drove up bank's funding costs.

Dell Computers Will Soon Be at Best Buy

Dell Inc. is venturing further from its direct-to-customer sales model and will start selling computers at Best Buy stores in January. Analysts say Dell must expand its presence in stores because consumers increasingly see computers as an extension of their personality and want to touch them before buying. Dell built its business on selling personal computers directly to customers over the phone or Internet, but it has been cutting deals with retailers as growth of PC sales slowed and Dell's U.S. consumer revenue declined.

Great Beasts Peppered From Space

Startling evidence has been found which shows mammoth and other great beasts from the last ice age were blasted with material that came from space. Eight tusks dating to some 35,000 years ago all show signs of having been peppered with meteorite fragments. The Ancient remains come from Alaska, but researchers also have a Siberian bison skull with the same pockmarks. The scientists released details of the discovery at a meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco, USA. They painted a picture of a calamitous event over North America that may have severely knocked back the populations of some species.

Striking Dinosaurs Found in Sahara

Two new dinosaur species have been discovered. The creatures are both sauropods, the group of giant plant eaters that includes the well known Diplodocus and Brachiosaurus. One of the newly discovered species, Jobaria tiguidensis, is a long necked, broad toothed creature that is strikingly primitive for a sauropod that appeared quite late about 130 to 140 million years ago, in dinosaur history. An adult Jobaria would have weighed about 20 tons and grown to the length of 65 feet. University of Chicago palaeontologist, Paul Sereno, whose team dug the creature out of the Sahara desert in the republic of Niger, said the fossilized bones represent a particularly fine dinosaur specimen.

Eczema - Bath Products Can Treat It

Bath products are an effective way of managing eczema in children, according to new NHS guidelines, despite a recent report saying such emollients may do little. But the NHS watchdog warns parents not to waste money on "high Street" allergy tests for the condition, and to avoid herbal remedies and food supplements. These are unproven and may cause side effects. This is the first time recommendations for treating eczema,which affects one in five children, have been compiled.

Robert Rosen said he was taking photos of the former Bond star on October 26 when he struck him in the chest. He claims he was left with severe physical and emotional pain and injuries, including bruised ribs. Last month prosecutors in Los Angeles said there was insufficient evidence to charge the 54 year old actor over the alleged incident.

Iraq Prison Hit by Mortar barrage

A number of mortars have hit a prison in Baghdad, killing at least seven inmates. About 20 others, including several policemen, were injured in the incident according to latest reports. The prison is close to the main buildings of the interior ministry and it is not known if it was specifically targeted for attack. Also on Monday, a serious fire broke out at a storage tank in the Doura oil refiner on the outskirts of Baghdad. The fire was a result of rocket or mortar fire.

We have a drug store in town that has built a new facility out on the edge of town. It isn't quite as handy but they have a drive through window that is quite nice. I ordered a refill this morning and took advantage of their free delivery service. It is really nice when it is about 10 degrees to have them bring the prescriptions to you instead of getting in the cold car and driving out to their new store. I really appreciate that service. It is great.

Asylum Seekers Could Face Longer Detentions

More people seeking asylum in the U.S. could be detained and then jailed longer under a new Homeland Security Department policy for people wanting safe harbor. The new policy applies to people placed in so-called expedited removal, a broad post-Sept 11 category for immigrants who arrive in the U.S. seeking asylum or whose immigration paperwork is incorrect, invalid or nonexistent. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a division of the Homeland Security Department, said it issued the new policy Nov. 6 to make detention rules for asylum seekers more consistent and clear. But refugee advocates say it sets tougher standards for asylum seekers to win parole from detention. The U.S. generally grants safe harbor to refugees fleeing persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion.

Patriots Survive Scare

The New England Patriots are still perfect, but looking mighty vulnerable. New England pulled off its greatest escape thus far to become the sixth team in NFL history to start a season with 12 victories. For the second straight week, it was a struggle against a losing team, but the incredibly resourceful Patriots got Tom Brady's 8 yard touchdown pass to Jabar Gaffney with 44 seconds left to beat the Baltimore Ravens 27-24 Monday night. The winning drive in the final minutes covered 73 yards and required two fourth down conversions, one on the defensive holding penalty 6 seconds before Gaffney beat Dawan Landry in the left corner of the end zone.

Sudan's President, British Delegation to Meet

Sudan's president will meet a British delegation to discuss a possible pardon for a teacher imprisoned in Sudan for allowing her students to name a teddy bear Muhammad, a presidential spokesman said. Two Muslim members of British parliament have been in Sudan for two days trying to set up a meeting with Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir. He is the only one who can pardon Gillian Gibbons, the 54 year old British teacher who has been imprisoned since Thursday. They will meet at 10:30 on Monday morning at the presidential palace. Gibbons was sentenced Thursday to 15 days in prison and deportation for insulting Islam because of allowing her students to give a teddy bear the same name as Islam's revered prophet - a violation under Sudan's Islamic Sharia law.

Martin Scorsese and Brian Wilson scored from "Good Vibrations" to "Goodfellas". Steve Martin strutted as one of the "wild and crazy guys". Diana Ross sang to Motown stardom. Pianist Leon Fleisher surmounted a debilitating injury. Their contributions to American culture won them a visit Sunday to the White House and recognition by President Bush, followed by an evening of celebration at the John F. Kenned Center for the Performing Arts. For their career achievements, the five were named in September as members of the 30th class of Kennedy Center honorees. The two hour event will air December 26 on CBS.

Plan to rescue Borrowers is no Solution for All

If lenders temporarily freeze low introductory interest rates on home loans made to risky borrowers before the soar, it would be a modest fix for the country's fractured housing market. The problems are so far reaching, according to analysts, that an emerging Bush administration backed plan, nicknamed "teaser freezer" by one economist, won't spare many borrowers, or bankers from the pain of escalating foreclosures and defaults. One economist says the plan is better than doing nothing but he added it is not necessarily going to make a big dent in the foreclosure problem that is facing us because thousands of borrowers still might not be able to make their monthly payments. As a result, the plan is unlikely to quell worries that the housing market's ongoing problems will drag the economy into a recession.

Study Makes Noises on Bird Song.

There is a study going on into what happens when people hear birdsong. Researchers at Aberdeen University will spend two years listening to birds to find out how their songs, calls and cries become a part of people's lives. "Listening to birds: an anthropological approach to bird sounds" has received funding from the Arts and Humanities research Council . The team is keen to hear from anyone interested in birds from across Britain and throughout the world. They say they are interested in understanding how people come to focus on particular sounds and how they develop the skill of identifying songs and calls and more.

Honda Radiator

One day we went out into the garage and there on the floor was a huge puddle of water and anti-freeze. That was the very last thing we wanted to see when we were ready to take off for a major shopping trip. We didn't know what to do but our neighbor had the same experience and he showed us where to go online to this website Honda Radiator and order a good, reliable radiator with a great guarantee. I found they have warehouses all over so they could get a radiator to me very quickly and at the lowest price. I was really happy about that as our budget has been very tight especially at this time of year with Christmas coming. They are a family owned business so they can really feel your pain and will quickly help you order the radiator you need and get it to you. Check out their other services too. And they have a toll-free number to talk to them on too.


Funerals are not fun to attend but they are sort of like family reunions. You see a lot of people and family that you haven't seen for a long time. We are going to a visitation tomorrow night and there will be quite a few people there we haven't seen in years and also some grandchildren we haven't seen either, for quite awhile. We had a snowstorm yesterday and I hope the roads are clear as we have about 30 miles to drive one way at night.

Flu May be Stopped by Simple Measures

A couple of the simple physical measures that you can take to prevent the flu are, of course, handwashing, but also wearing masks could play a key role in blocking the spread of a flu pandemic. In the UK, the government is doubling its stockpile of antiviral medicines in preparation for an future pandemic. Researchers believe, though, that simple, low cost measures such as handwashing and masks should be given a higher priority. I think they are probably correct as we spread a lot of germs with our hands and not covering our mouths when we cough.

Flu Could Wipe Out 62 Million People

A global flu pandemic could kill 62 million people warned the experts. In l918 a pandemic claimed 50 million lives and experts predict the toll today would be higher than this despite medical advances. The world's poorest nations would be hardest hit, fueled by factors such as HIV and malaria infections, the Harvard University researchers believe. Needless to say, yet developing countries can least afford to prepare for a pandemic. This needs to be addressed.

Broadway Walkout Ends

A deal has been reached to end a strike by stagehands at Broadway theaters in New York, which has shut down more than 20 shows for more than two weeks. This has been a great disappointment to visitors to New York who planned their vacation to take in a couple of Broadway shows.A spokeswoman for the theaters said performances would resume and did resume yesterday.

Snow and Ice

Well, we got a little bit of that snow they promised us but that is just the beginning. I heard cars were spinning off the road last night. It takes awhile to get used to winter driving again. The highways are clear now but I guess we are really in for a 6 inch snowfall tomorrow and freezing rain and it doesn't sound good at all. I went to the grocery store and stocked up as the cupboards were bare. I don't usually get that much, maybe once a month or even less. But like to have enough meat in the freezer to last a while so we should be set. Keep an extra loaf of bread and some frozen garlic bread and biscuits in there too as it seems like milk and bread are two of the things we run out of most quickly. Sun is shining and wind isn't blowing so it isn't too bad.

Wine of the Month

I have received two bottles of wonderful red and white wine from the Belvedere and Bradford Mountain Wineries. This delicious Chardonnay and impressive Zinfandel are a part of the wine of the month program that Sally and Bill Hambrecht began in l979.

Republican Debate - Sparks Fl

The Republican presidential candidates have had heated exchanges in another televised debate, their first to feature questions submitted via video-sharing website YouTube. Among other topics, they clashed over immigration and the troop timetable in Iraq. They stood there in matching dark suits and white shirts on the stage in St. Petersburg, Florida - eight candidates who were so reluctant to engage the youthful, online generation that they had turned down an earlier invitation from YouTube. But now they were here, apparently determined to make the most of it. They turned what could have been another dull stage show into the most animated and entertaining GOP debate so far.

Hackers Hijack Web Search Results

A huge campaign to poison web searches and trick people into visiting malicious websites has been thwarted. The booby-trapped websites came up in search results for search terms such as "Christmas gifts" and "hospice". Windows users falling for the trick risked having their machine hijacked and personal information plundered. The criminals poisoned search results using thousands of domains set up to convince search index software they were serious sources of information. It is sure a good thing they caught this before it was too late.

Iraq - Long Term Presence Framework Set

On Monday, President Bush signed a deal setting the foundation for a potential long term U.S. troop presence in Iraq. The details are to be negotiated over matters that have defined the war debate at home. That is how many U. S. forces will stay in the country and for how long. The agreement between Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki confirms that the United States and Iraq will hash out an "enduring" relationship in military, economic and political terms. This proposal underlines how the U.S. and Iraq are exploring what their relationship might look like once the U.S. significantly draws down its troop presence.

St. Judes's Hospital

Marlo Thomas wants holiday shoppers to set aside a little of the money they are spending on holiday shopping and donate it to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This hospital was founded b her father, Danny Thomas. There are so many children who are alive today that would be dead if it were not for St. Jude's Hospital. Most people couldn't afford the care on their own, so it is a very good place to send your donations.

Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer sneaks up on men. There are no symptoms. If you get really sick, then chances are it is in your bones already and there isn't much hope. It is very important that all men get a PSA blood test by age 50. I think age 45 would be even better. Men in there 50's usually have to have surgery if diagnosed with prostate cancer. An enlarged prostate can also give a high reading of PSA but they take biopsies to find the cancer for sure. Men over 70 aren't offered surgery usually, but rather radiation or hormone shots. It is a sneaky disease and worth a man's time to check into it.

Pakistans's President Frees Thousands of Opponents

President Musharraf freed thousands of opponents from jails Tuesday in a sign he is rolling back a wave of repression under emergency rule and flew to Saudi Arabia to talk about the future of an exiled rival, Nawaz Sharif. Saudi officials said there were efforts to arrange a meeting between Musharraf and Sharif, who was ousted as prime minister by the general's l999 coup. However, a Pakistani official said Musharraf's goal was to prevent Sharif from returning before parliamentary elections January 8.

Ian Smith, age 88, ruled the country now known as Zimbabwe. He was the last white prime minister whose attempt to resist black rule dragged the country now known as Zimbabwe into isolation and civil war. He has now died. He recently suffered a stroke and died at a clinic near Cape Town, South Africa, where he spent his final years with his family and long time friend, Sam Whaley, who was a senator in the former Rodesia.

Blames Bush and Cheney for Deceit

Former White House press secretary Scott McClellan blames President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for efforts to mislead the public about the role of White House aides in leaking the identity of a CIA operative. In an excerpt from his forthcoming book, McClellan recounts the 2003 news conference in which he told reporters that aides Karl Rove and I.Lewis "Scooter" Libby were "not involved" in the leaking involving operative Valerie Plame. I for one, am tired of hearing about this.

Samsung 46 inch LCD

My husband wants a new larger television so very bad. Our big one got hit by lightning so we got a smaller one and he just isn't happy. So we went to look into the internet and found samsung 46 inch LCD. This is the best search engine that provides product, location and pricing on all kinds of televisions, appliances, and most everything for the home that you are looking for and more.

Thanksgiving Dinner

We are going to our daughter's for belated Thanksgiving dinner today. There will be too much food as always and everyone will overeat. That's half the fun of it. There will be lots of pictures taken and the new baby girl will be there for us to see her in person instead of just pictures. Heard the kids are coming home from Texas for Christmas so will get to see the little baby boy then. Neat.

Cinnamon Rolls

Did you ever make little cinnamon rolls out of leftover pie crust? My Mom always used to do that and we just loved them so I make them too. Some people just roll out the crust, spread some butter on it and sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar and then bake it and break off pieces of it. I roll it out, spread butter on it, put cinnamon sugar mixture on it, then sprinkle just a bit of brown sugar on it, roll it up, cut it in little rolls and put it on non-stick foil on a baking sheet, bake at 350 degrees till just nicely set.

Taking it tomorrow for dinner.

Oil Prices Approach $100

Oil prices resumed their march toward $100 Tuesday, rising to records over $98 a barrel as futures drew strength from a declining dollar,and news of refinery problems. I don't know how many people in this country really realize how much trouble the dollar is in. It is lower than any currency anywhere in the world and this is a serious situation. There is also speculation that the Federal Reserve will again cut interest rates. Heating oil futures also rose to new records. Gasoline prices, meanwhile, extended their decline at the pumps they say, but not around here. It is going up.l We paid $3.10 a gallon this morning, while we know in the larger town about 25 miles away it is $3.00. That was the highest it has ever gone in this area as far as I can remember. Our light and gas company advised us awhile back, already, that our bills for heat and lights this winter would be at least 1/3 higher than last year and that is quite a bit.

Winter is Here

Winter is here and snow is knocking at our door from the west. A big snow storm is out west and we are getting alot of the cold off of it. It is 30 degrees but with the wind it feels like a wind chill of zero. We had to get gas this morning and I thought my hands would freeze. Walking into that Northwest wind is almost unbearable. So glad to get back into the nice warm house.

Thyroid and Holly, Our Little Boston Terrier

Holly has been having some problems with breaking out with staff. It comes at any time without warning and then she has to be put on antibiotics until it clear up. Well, it got so bad we went to another Vet and found out through a blood test that her thyroid is low. Her hair wasn't growing back where she had the breakouts and she was really beginning to look like she would go bald. She takes a tiny little pill every day and her hair has come back and she is beginning to look so nice again. It's funny how a dog can have a "people" health problem, isn't it?


The neighbor lady just got home from buying groceries and I have been watching her unload them. They have 4 children and I just saw her carry in a case of one kind of cereal. They are all in school except the one year old and I am sure they really go through alot of cereal. It seems like the sacks of groceries are almost endless. I remember when our five were all home yet, it took 2 grocery carts to fill it and I got so good at packing them, it took 3 or 4 for the grocery boy to carry them to the car.

There seems to be a lot of difference in men's razors. We bought an awfully nice one Wednesday for my husband's birthday. He got it home and tried it out and he didn't like the way it shaved or didn't shave parts of his face. So tonight we stood in a long line and returned it and bought another. He is going to try it out tomorrow after charging it up tonight. I hope this one works.

New Eye Glasses

My husband finally got his new eye glasses today after two cataract surgeries that were very successful. He has 20-20 vision now in both eyes and just has a little bifocal to read with. He said it sure makes a difference as he was straining to read and his eyes were getting very tired every day. They loaned him a little pair of reading glasses but they were so scratched he really didn't even like using them. He's a happy man now having gone about 2 months without new glasses.

Car Insurance Rates

When you get a new car, sometimes you decide to go looking for a new car insurance to see if you can lower your rates. Or perhaps your company has kept raising their rates and your brother is telling you to change to his company. So I decided to go onto the Internet and see what I could find there for good car insurance and I found this site that gave me a lot of information on just what I was looking for in auto insurance. I like to be able to get several car insurance quotes before I decide which company to go with.This online website car insurance rates has all the information you need to make an informative decision. They not only have everything you need to know about car insurance but they can tell you how accidents effect your rates and what the minimum liability amount of insurance that you need to carry. You can go into their "State by State" and find your state and key in on it and see all about the insurance requirements for your state. They will give you free quotes for multiples drivers of your vehicle too. For our state they gave me the 5 lowest rates and I could get quotes in 5 minutes.That is terrific.

Baby Pictures

We finally got the baby pictures of little baby Emry William on email. Email is sure a great thing when they are in another state and we can see the baby right here on the screen. He's not so little. He's 9 pounds and such a nice big baby. They are easier to handle than a 5 pound baby. Ours were all over 8#10 oz, 8# 14 oz and 9#2oz, so I know. He will be so much fun with his little cousin Kaelyn when they get bigger. It is so neat to have two great grandchildren so close together and we will get to see them more than we get to see the other three.

We got an email from a good friend of our kids that has become an auctioneer. Now they have bought their auctioneering business near Chicago. That is a goal she had in life was to become an auctioneer and she went to school and got her licensed about 3 years ago. She always has been a very fast talker, hardly coming up for air, so I can believe that she is doing very well. She is also working for the Pregnancy Center and is an Executive there. She is a great Christian and doing so much good work.

Telephone Marketers

Well the telephone marketers are back on the phone again and I had to call in again and get my phone on the "Do not call" registry. They say it runs out every 5 years after you register. That is a pain and there seems to be alot of other kinds of calls that get through no matter what. I get alot of surveys over the phone and alot of calls for money from various groups. Sometimes I just hate to hear the phone ring but it doesn't ring now quite as much since I signed up again.


I went to an auction last week and there was everything under the sun there. I never saw so many toys and many were in their original boxes. There was alot of yarn and goods for sewing too and furniture and just about everything. We had to have something to eat too, of course, so had some maidrites and rice krispie bars with thick chocolate on top. My daughter brought me home the cutest little stuffed kind of brown and white dog. He is sitting here watching me type. At least he doesn't bark and doesn't have to be fed and I can just look over at him once in a while and enjoy him. He's my little posting mascot.

Six Month Checkup

Tomorrow is my six month checkup. I had to take one of those fasting blood tests last week so I will get the results of that. Think I have lost a few pounds as I am exercising more and it makes a person feel good to exercise. Too much sitting puts on the pounds snacking too much. I am anxious to see how the test turned out as I am anemic and always glad to see good results there. I take liver and iron daily to keep it up.


I heard today from my brother that there was quite a bit of snow coming down about 20 miles or so north of us on Friday. We heard there were some flurries around but we didn't see any. The wind was very bad, about 40 mph and it was extremely cold and the wind chill was way down there but it didn't snow and I am glad of that. It seems to come soon enough and the winter seems like it is 6 months long. It helps if it waits till January and then it doesn't seem quite as bad.

Filing Cabinet

I think one of those big jobs I must do one of these days is to go through the filing cabinet again and throw out all the obsolete files in there. I have so many old medical forms but everything needs to be shredded too because they have information on them you don't just want to put out in the garbage. And now days they won't let you burn stuff like you used to be able to do. That was so simple then.

Plastic Piece for My Chair

I need to get to the store and get a piece of plastic to put under my chair here at the computer before I completely wear through the rug. I just noticed it is beginning to show signs of wear from rolling back and forth. I have two chairs that I use and both seem to be doing the same thing. I guess they are easy to find at Wal-Mart or Target so I will be going there the middle of the week and get one. It will be lots easier to move about too by the computer.

HD Professional Stock Videos

If you are looking for good High Definition stock footage, then you should look into HD Professional Stock Videos for what you need. They collect all the extra stock footage of cinematographers that they have left over after a "shoot". On the other side, there are people looking for just that High Definition stock footage because they aren't satisfied with the standard type. They buy up these extra clips and sell them royalty free so those buying them are able to use them all over the world. This is a great advantage to the cinematographers as they make 50% of the net revenue that is gained by the sale of their footage and gives them a regular monthly income at the same time. It is good for both buyers and sellers.

IBM Selectric Typewriter

I had them come and get my IBM Selectric Typewriter for repair. I think I need to give them a call and see what is going on with it. Although it is maybe 20 years old it is in excellent shape and a great electric correctible typewriter. I am beginning to wonder what it is going to cost too. I know the man who runs the business. He cleaned that typewriter on my job for many years and my employer let me buy it when I retired.

Drugs for ADHD is Not The Answer

Research shows that treating children with ADHD is not effective in the long term. A study says drugs such as Ritalin and Concerta work no better than therphy after three years of treatment. In fact, the findings of a US long time study show that it may even stunt the children's growth. That would really be bad. I hope they look into this much more.

Holly's Bedtime

It is time for Holly's bedtime. If I am working on the computer, she comes in and kind of talks to me in her little dog's language and tells me it is time to go to bed. She must have a little clock in her brain because she is always on time most of the time. I know she is waiting so I better get going and get her to bed on her comforter.

Nine Troops Dead in Afghan Ambush

It is a very sad day today as it was reported that nine troops were dead in an Afghan ambush. Six were US soldiers. Militants ambushed a patrol of Afghan soldiers and US troops from NATO's International Security Assistance Force. The ambush was one of the costliest for US forces this year and the deadliest for the US since it helped overthrow the Talaban in 2001.

Visit The New Grandchild

We would love to visit the new great grandchild, Kaelyn Sue, but I know we would get lost forever in the town where she lives. We were there some years ago to get a couple of beautiful western suits at a special store there and we got lost going and coming home. We see more country by accident than on purpose so guess we will have to wait till Thanksgiving and that's not too far off now.

Cherry Pepsi

Cherry Pepsi is my drink of choice and with granadine, it is even better. That is what I had last night with my Mexican food and it was soooo good. They give you an extra big straw now that know of takes you back at first because so much Pepsi comes up through the straw at once, you aren't quite prepared for it. But you get used to it quickly and it sure was good.
