Casey's General Store and Station

Our Casey's store and station has closed up after 15 years. I had read in the paper that the last day would be Oct 29th but wondered if it was really true. I guess their lease ran out and business wasn't as good as it was when they first started. Since then 2 more stations have been added to town, a Kum & Go and a Townmart and I guess there wasn't enough business for all of them. I am really going to miss them as I got gas there a lot and they had great fresh donuts and pizzas too.


I needed to do some banking earl this morning. They have a drive through window that opens early so I always go there to cash checks and make deposits. This morning they had the cutest little stuffed Halloween elf in the window and it had this saying on the front of it "I want candy and I want alot of it now". I thought it was really cute and gave both me and the teller a good laugh.

Hot Tea and Me

Here I sit with a good hot cup of tea. I like to have a cup every afternoon almost. I like black tea best even though they say green tea is so good for you, I don't like it.
I'm sitting here with the utility bill and phone bills and other stuff and doing the first of the month books a little early. It's been a slow day and good day to get things like that done. I enjoy a slow day now and then and a good nap with Holly after lunch.

U.S. Mortgage Company Sees Loss

There have been so many mortgage foreclosures in the U.S. that it is no wonder that U.S. mortgage giant Countrywide Financial has reported a $1.2 billion in losses during the third quarter.

Cervical Cancer Is A Killer

Because cervical cancer is a killer, schoolgirls in Britain will be vaccinated against the virus that causes it. They are going to go further than is recommended by experts with all aged 12-13 eligible and a catch-up campaign up to 18. It is thought that vaccinating from human papilloma virus (HPV) could save hundreds of lives in the UK each year. I know I have heard a lot of news about vaccinating your girls in the United States as well but I don't know that it is settled yet. I believe they need the parents permission to vaccinate even younger.

Crockpot Cooking

I am making a delicious roast in the crockpot today. I use onion salt, garlic salt and Greek seasoning on the meat and brown it on every side in a big frying pan in oil.Then I put it into the crockpot. This is about 9 am. Then at noon I turn it on high. I put onion and garlic salt in the water to taste before adding the browned roast. About 2:30 I will add some whole onions, carrots, and then about 4 add potatoes. At 5 pm it will be ready to eat. Make some gravy out of the juice in the crockpot and everything is delicious and easy. Little cleanup too.

Colds and Flu

My husband is getting over his flu he got from his flu shot, but he is pretty weak yet. He walks on our Gazelle for 15 minutes, twice a day, but he found he couldn't make it very long this morning. And now he's got a cold. I don't know where that came from but he is coughing and runny nose and the works. I need to get to the store later and get more tylenol too. It helps with the aches and pains. I put sheet blankets on the bed this morning. That should make it warmer but he uses the electric blanket all the time now too. I think we are about due to get another new electric blanket.

Labor Pains

Well it looks like the labor pains are finally beginning to start. Last night my grandaughter was have quite a few labor pains and that little baby may be on the way today. It is really exciting. One day your daughter is having your grandaughter and the next day the grandaughter is having her baby. It seems to go that fast. I was a grandmother at 40 so my daughter is making up for lost time by having two grandchildren due at the same time. Maybe by tonight or tomorrow I can write about the new addition to our family.

It is all pretty exciting.

Pneumonia Shots

We got pneumonia shots yesterday afternoon and my husband got his flu shot in the morning also. I had gotten my flu shot the week before but he had to wait due to his cataract surgery. But now he is running a fever and chills and I think perhaps he shouldn't have gotten both shots the same day, one in the morning in one arm and one in the afternoon in the other arm. I think he is having a light case of the flu. They sa that is good but he doesn't feel so good. My arm where they gave me the pneumonia shot has turned bright red and swollen and now I have another big red spot like hives just below it. I hope I don't get any other hives. It had been 10 years since we had the pneumonia shots. We get flu shots every year and I think everyone should if they can, and aren't allergic to eggs and anything else on their list.

Headache Treatment

If you suffer from migraines or any other kind of headache, then you are miserable. There is nothing like trying to work with a bad headache.

They have neurologists on staff that know their business. They can help you when no one else can. Being without headaches feels so good and gives you a new lease on life. Don't wait. Look them up today and see what they can do for you.

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is amazing. It takes longer to get the patient ready for the surgery that it takes to do the surgery. The surgery is about 10 minutes and you go from being almost legally blind to 20-20 vision. My husband has had both eyes operated on now and he has 20-20 and 20-30 vision and the doctor says in 2 weeks he will have 20-20 vision in the latest eye surgery. He will only need photogray lenses because his eyes have always been very sensitive to light and a bifocal just for reading, although he can read without glasses, but it is a bit harder. In 3 weeks he will have his new glasses and the world already looks so much different without the cataracts clouding the lenses in his eyes. It is just great.

Baby Stores

New parents have so many questions and so few answers. It seems we all just did what came naturally, hoping the babies would turn out alright. Now there is help for all new parents. They can go online to baby stores and find thousands of parents who are eager to share their advice and experience on everything from baby products to services. This site has launched with 32,000 listings in 5,000 neighborhoods in the United States. It's so easy, one click and they have 24 hour access to more than they could ever learn from friends and family in a short time. I raised five myself and could have used a site like this to answer so many questions that new parents have, especially that first baby. Two of my grandchildren are having babies this weekend and I can tell them about this great informational site.

Iran is Defiant at New US Sanctions

Iran has responded defiantly to new sanctions imposed by the US targeting Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps and three state owned banks. The Iranian foreign ministry said the sanctions were doomed to failure. But US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says the measures are to confront the threatening behavior of the Iranians. Something had to be done since the insisted on continuing with their nuclear plans. I guess we will see in the future how it works out.

Apple is ready to Set Leopard Free

The latest update of the Apple Mac operating system OS X, Leopard, goes on sale on Friday. Do you have a Mac? In the last three months, Apple sold 2.2 million of them, which was up 400,000 on its previous best quarter.Mac fans have been waiting for months for the release of Leopard. Apple had pushed back the launch to finish development of its much hyped iPhone. The early reviews for Leopard have been positive and evolutionary. Apple is hoping to build on recent strong sales of its Mac. Apple thinks it will be a Vista beater due to new features not found in Vista. I'm anxious to see how it turns out. My brother has Vista and he isn't all that happy with it.

Russian President Putin

Russian President Putin gave a stark missile warning to the United States. He says the plans for a missile shield could precipitate a situation similar to the Cuban missile crisis of the l950's. He was speaking after a summit with EU leaders in Portugal aimed at deepening ties despite disagreements over human rights and foreign policy. Russia has long opposed US plan to build missile bases in European states once in the Soviet sphere of influence. The Cuban crisis saw the Soviet Union and the US go to the brink of nuclear war. We sure don't that to happen again.

Car Repair

We took our car in for repair this morning. It had a loose tie rod and we had to be there early at 7:30 a.m. There were sure a lot of people coming in to have work done. This is a very busy garage and they are very reasonable priced. It would have cost us about $40 more if we had gone to the dealership where we bought the car. That makes a lot of difference in your budget when you are retired.

Flu Shots

We both went up and got our flu shots so now we are all set. They say it takes a couple of weeks to be effective and the flu really does not start I guess until the first of the year. But we are glad to be protected. In past years, we had really bad cases of the flu that put us right down in bed for several days and once I lost my voice for a whole week along with it. It isn't fun. So if you haven't gotten your shot yet, please do because you won't be sorry.

Twin Grandchildren

We have twin grandchildren, a boy and a girl. Two years ago they got married a week apart in June. Now they are both going to be parents at the same time within a day of each other. The girls are both due tomorrow or Sunday. Wouldn't it be something if both babies are born on the same day. One is in Texas and they know they are having a little boy who will be named Emry. His sister doesn't want to know what their baby is because they say there are so few surprises in life, that this can be one of them. I think I agree with that. We can hardly wait for the girls to go into labor and have those great grandbabies.

Mexican Oil Rig Accident Kills 18

At least 18 workers have died after huge waves knocked a drilling platform and an oil rig together in the gulf of Mexico, setting off gas and oil leaks. Mexico's state oil company, Pemex, says 61 people were rescued from life rafts but several are still missing at sea. Pemex said it would take several days to control the leaks but they were not as bad as originally feared. The bad weather forced the Mexican authorities to close the main oil exporting ports in the Gulf of Mexico.

Kenmore Refrigerators

When you set up housekeeping you usually have a good set of appliances. But somewhere along the way they begin to wear out or circumstances such as a long hot summer takes it toll on your refrigerator, for example. That is what happened to my neighbor's refrigerator and he had to find the quickest way to get another because everyone knows how quickly everything spoils without refrigeration.

Weather forecasts have raised hopes of some respite from the wildfires raging out of control across southern California for the last four days. Forecasters say the Santa Ana winds, which fueled the spread of the flames and had reached hurricane strength, are just starting to die out. We have a niece in Escondido and so far her house hasn't burned but she was packed and staying with relatives 80 miles away and they hadn't let her go home yet as of yesterday. When we lived in California, we learned the called them the Santana winds because they believed they came from Satan. Interesting, isn't it?

EU Blue Card to Target Skilled

The European Commission has unveiled a Blue Card for skilled immigrants, based on the US Green Card. The plan would allow suitably qualified people and their families to live and work within the European Union. The EU says it needs 20m skilled workers over the next two decades and is very short of expertise in engineering and computer technology. The scheme, which is more restrictive than the US Green Card, would need the approval of all 27 Eu member states.

Killer of US Nun is Jailed

A Brazilian judge has sentenced a gunman to 27 years in prison after his retrial for the murder of US born nun and environmentalist Dorothy Stang. The killer was again found guilty of killing Sister Dorothy on the orders of two rangers in 2005. He had been granted an automatic retrial under Brazilian law because his first sentence was more than 20 years. She campaigned for poor farmers' rights and to preserve the rainforest from loggers and developers.

The killer said at his first trial that he mistook the bible she was taking out of her bag for a gun.

The Congolese arm has threatened an all out offensive against both Tutsi and Hutu militias in the region. Refugees have been streaming across the border into Uganda by the thousands.

Missile Shield is Urgent

President Bush has said there is a real and urgent need for a missile defense system in Europe.

He warned that Iran could have a ballistic missile capable of reaching Europe or the US by 2015. Earlier, US Defense Secretary Robert Gates said the shield could be delayed while Russian concerns were tackled.

Arctic Muds Reveal Sea Ice Record

A new technique to track changes in the extent of Arctic sea ice over the past 1,000 years is being developed by a UK team of the University of Plymouth. The scientists are stying sediments from the sea bed in the fabled Northwest Passage. These muds may cast valuable historical light on why some famous expeditions to the region were successful while others were doomed to failure. The research could also guide computer forecasts of future climate. The reasoning is that, as with tree rings and coral growth, the thin layers of sediment which build up on the ocean floor act as a storehouse of information about the patterns of past conditions. The Plymouth work is being conducted from the Canadian Coast Guard ship, the Amundsen.
