Destin Florida

I was thinking about taking a vacation this winter in Florida. In checking the Internet I found that one of the best beaches is in destin florida. I had no idea there was so much to do in Destin. We love to fish and they have the best fishing. The white sand beaches are just calling to me too. And there are so many fine restaurants and nightlife there to enjoy. It is so easy to get on the Internet and fill out a form and book your vacation by car, plane and arrival and departure times. In my opinion, it couldn't be easier than that.

Home Lighting

Our lamps are very old. I would venture to guess that we bought them in the l970's. I really feel it is about time to get some new home lighting. It would really spruce up every room in our home to change the lighting. There are so many new different types and brands. It is exciting to check the Internet for the best buys and discounts. It is also important because once I get the lighting changed, it will probably be some time again before I make any more changes.

Weight Loss Pills

There has been a lot of advertising lately about weight loss pills. I am sure it is because there was considerable concern before the Holidays started about eating and putting on excess weight. Now we have just passed Christmas but the parties are on the horizon for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day with lots of tempting food. It pays to check out the Internet and see what is available and what really works to lose that excess weight you may have gained from all the good Holiday food.


In deciding how to dress up my home, I decided something that would do a great job of sprucing up the house would be new tiles. There is such a good selection of tile materials now and great colors. It is easy to choose the ones that will compliment your decor. It is good for your moral to make changes in your home that brighten up the rooms. It is always so nice to walk through your home and admire the changes you have made.

Insurance Quote

Insurance is a big part of our lives. My father was always very serious about having enough life insurance to protect his family. You never know when something can happen and take away the bread winner of the family unexpectedly. But it is always a good idea to get an insurance quote before you buy. Homeowners insurance or renters insurance are something you should not be without. Car insurance is the law in many states. But check out the Internet before you buy to get the best quote possible on whatever insurance you may need.

Pumpkin Pie

I remembered awhile ago that I didn't have a can of pumpkin in the house. What is Christmas without a pumpkin pie. So I made a quick trip to the store when I picked up the mail. I guess it is really in demand and a while back they said there was a shortage of pumpkin. I noticed when I went to the store that they were rationing it to 2 cans per customer. I don't ever remember them having to do that before. Anyway, we will have a pumpkin pie for Christmas at our house.

Sounds like More Snow is on the Way

It sounds like we could have more snow for Christmas. I think we are to get flurries later today or tonight and then more on Sunday. Next week sounds like it might be a snowy week too. We have huge piles of snow everywhere already. It makes it hard for the landlord to know where to put it all. Especially if we get a great deal of snow and it blows, then he has to push the piles way back into the yards. We end up patching the grass every Spring but it always comes back.

New Crockpot

My new crock pot came yesterday. I got it FREE with points from taking surveys with a company on the Internet. It is really a nice one and my old one had to be 30 years old at least. It just didn't seem to be heating right anymore. It didn't have a removable pot that you could take to the table and serve or put in the refrigerator with leftovers in it. That is a great advantage. It also has a "keep warm" feature which is really neat. I am so happy to have it.

Florida Vacations

One stop shopping is on everyone's minds these days. So if you are planning florida vacations then you also would want to go to a one stop shopping store to reserve your vacation, wouldn't you? Why not check the Internet for specials on stays at hotels? Also, you need to know what vacation packages are available. In this economy, you want to be wise with your money and get the best deals around. Do not forget to check out all the ticket specials to the Orlando theme parks too.

Wisconsin Family Visit

We are looking forward to having family come through here from Wisconsin this week. They plan on pulling their trailer to Arizona for the worst of the winter. They have had a great deal of snow already in Wisconsin and hopefully the roads won't be as icy as they were last year when it is time for them to head to Iowa. We always go out with them for a great Mexican meal as they don't have any good Mexican restaurants where they live.

Pizza Tonight

We have been home since Sunday with all the weather that went through here. I have cooked and cooked. But tonight it is my night to enjoy someone else's cooking. Tonight we took in the buffet at Pizza Ranch. They also have the best broasted chicken for miles around. Tomorrow it is back to the stove to make meals again but for tonight it was fun to get out.

Cancun Adults Only

We have always enjoyed taking a vacation or a long weekend away from the kids. That is why we looked up Cancun Adults Only to see what accommodations we could locate. The white sand beaches of Riviera Maya are just the place to enjoy a warm relaxing time. With luxury rooms with beautiful ocean views, you can totally relieve the stresses of every day life and work. Enjoy the beach, the swimming pools, a delicious menu sure to please everyone, spend some relaxing time at a spa or take in some nearby shopping. Check out the Internet for this place of indulgence that will completely pamper you.

Boy did we have a big bad blizzard in our part of the country. We had so much snow, it blew into huge snowdrifts so you couldn't really measure it. We think we got 6+ inches. I know just an hour from us they got 11 inches and other parts got even more. We stayed in the house for two days watching the snow blow by the windows. Driving wasn't allowed in our State at all. I am glad it is over but now we have sub zero temperatures and it is still dangerous to be outside for longer than a few minutes.

Implant Dentist Plano

Everyone wants to have a beautiful smile but not everyone has a perfect set of teeth. Some have a tooth missing that spoils their general appearance when they smile. My nieces are fortunate to live in Plano, Texas and when they needed a tooth replaced they went to see an implant dentist Plano. Replacing a missing tooth with an implant can make all the difference in your life. It can give you more self esteem and confidence.

Acne Treatment

Acne can be heartbreaking. Most people try so many things to help cure their acne. If you have it, I am sure you didn't know what to do about it. As time went on, you probably saw doctors and tried an acne treatment or perhaps several to clear up your acne. By checking into the Internet, you can locate a website that has done all the work for you. They have checked out the safety, efficiency and can provide you with other customer feedback on which works best.

Weight Loss Diet

Oh my, here it is that time again. It is the happy time of the year when all the parties begin. Everyone is baking their best goodies to enjoy. And, what do we do? We eat and eat and put on weight and then we need a good weight loss diet. But which one is the best? I know I feel I need to get on the Internet and find a website that has done the work for me and can tell me the best products to help me lose my Holiday weight.

Motorhome Insurance

A motorhome is a big investment. Many people sell their homes, and their motorhome is their home, especially in retirement. Of course, the next most important investment to make when you own a motorhome is motorhome insurance. If you do have an accident, it is possible to have your entire home and belongings go up in smoke. If you already have this insurance, often by checking the Internet, you find you can save a great deal of money by switching companies.

New Calendars

I went to the bank this morning and picked up two new calendars. I decided it was time to get ready for 2010. I like to copy my birthdays and other important events onto the new calendar. It takes some time, but it is worth it. It always takes me some time though to get up the ambition to tackle the job :0). However, this afternoon, I got it all done and it is ready to go and that's a good feeling.

Glove Weather

My brother says he used to go out in winter without gloves. But as he has gotten older, it bothers his hands. Now he wears gloves all the time. I always wear gloves when it gets cold. The steering wheel is just too cold to drive without gloves. Mine are looking kind of shabby but I have a couple new pair of leather ones to wear. Have been wearing them for church, but may start using them all the time.

Weight Loss Products

Here we are again in the season of Holidays and eating goodies and expanding our waistlines. Everyone I talk to is talking about weight loss products. They feel if they can just lose a few pounds quickly now, then when they enjoy all the good foods of Christmas and the Holidays, they will kind of be ahead of the game. Instead of coming out of Christmas 7 pounds heavier, they may turn out to be their normal weight instead. It think it is a good plan but you need to check out the Internet to be sure you are using the top products that will help you lose that weight.

Unique Gifts for Her

It is getting close to Christmas and my husband has a problem. We have been married for so many years that he has bought me just about everything I have ever wanted. Now he is saying to himself, "how can I get unique gifts for her"? I sort of accidently let him see me looking at this unique website on the Internet. He couldn't help but get a number of ideas for gifts this year. Since I love jewelry, scarves, candles and things for our home, he should have no problem at all.

Belly Fat

My husband has been so concerned about the amount of belly fat he has. He would so like to get rid of it in the worst way. But when I checked the internet for belly fat you would not believe the pages and pages of products offered. Where do you start? You need a company who has done all that work for you and sorted them down to 7 percent of all those millions listed. These are the ones they found that really do what they say.

Health Insurance Leads

Along with everything else, the economy is affecting the insurance business in a big way. No longer is it profitable for a person to go visiting the local insurance companies to get quotes for insurance or renewing their insurance. Most of us are on our computers a great deal so why not use them to get quotes?

With the government working on a new health care plan, I feel all insurance companies need all the health insurance leads possible. But not only that, they need to be good honest leads. So it is very important that insurance companies obtain their leads from a reputable source that has sorted out all the honest, truly interested people who are seeing such insurance on the Internet.

Good Doctor's Report

My husband spit up a little blood two mornings in a row. We thought we better have it checked out. So he went to the doctor and she took a chest x-ray. We just got the report and everything in his lungs is fine and clear. It turned out he had a tiny blood vessel bleed during the night and that was what caused the bit of blood. What a good report!!

Sunday, November 29, 2009


We had a great church service today. The church is collecting good used winter coats for those who do not have one or need one. We found 4 that we hadn't been wearing and hope that someone will get them that really need them. We had some wonderful Praise and Worship music and song and a good teaching by the Pastor too.

Best Hair Loss Products

It is too late for my husband, but maybe it isn't too late for you. He didn't have access to information about the best hair loss products. If we had just checked into the Internet, perhaps we could have found out which products really work and which don't. Someone else has done the research instead of us buying this and that and having nothing work. It is good news for others that they have found products that actually do what they say they will do.

Get in Touch

This is the easy way to get in touch with your website visitors. A live chat with your customers can really enhance your business. You will find that you can decrease costs and increase sales. By checking the Internet, you will find there are three packages available to you for live chat. Find out which suits your business best. Even if you are just a small business, you will find one to suit you.

29 More Days Till Christmas

Do you have your Christmas list made out? Are you going out early for Black Friday and freeze various parts of your body waiting for the stores to open? Not me. I will be snuggled in my nice warm bed in my nice warm house thinking of you. There isn't anything out there that is worth doing that. Standing in mile long lines for hours and then having the last one sold right under your nose. Happy Shopping everyone.

Degree Online

I know you have been thinking for a long time about finishing your degree. Whether it is for a Bachelor or Masters degree or perhaps a specialization in Education, you can find your degree online on the Internet. Take a few minutes and check it out, it will be well worth your time. Why spend time after work driving to a local college when you are tired out from the daily stresses of your job? Why not study in the comfort and peace and quiet of your own home, save gas, and study at your own speed. Doesn't that sound so much better than sitting for hours in a class away from home and then having to drive home afterwards? You can take a lot of stress out of your life and get that degree you have always desired.

Suspected IRA Dissidents Charged With Attack

News out of Belfast, Northern Ireland said that two suspected Irish Republican Army dissidents have been charged with attempting to kill an off-duty police officer near the province's border and the Republic of Ireland last week. They were 26 and 32 years of age and were among three suspects arrested after gunmen tried to ambush the officer in Garrison, a lakeside border village in the westernmost corner of Northern Ireland on Saturday.

Mexico and Astronauts

A NASA astronaut said he wants to help Mexican officials start the country's first space agency. That sounds like a good idea, doesn't it? He said he has no plans to leave his job at NASA, but hopes to help Mexico's program get off the ground. He is the U.S. born son of a Mexican migrant farm worker who spent much of his childhood moving between Mexico and the U.S. He has lobbied for a space program in meetings with Mexican lawmakers on Tuesday.

Hair Stylist Jobs

I do not know what I would do without my beauty operator. I look so forward to getting my haircuts and permanents done by her. I am sure when she was younger, she looked into hair stylist jobs and decided that was just what she wanted to do. Today it is much easier to find jobs, as well as, schools. All you need to do is get on the Internet and check it out. You can fill in a zip code and get the information you are looking for. Employers can do the same thing. It is so easy. Perhaps you are looking for a career in hair styling. You may want to look into this.

Mashed Potatoes

Is there anyone out there who doesn't like mashed potatoes? Especially mashed potatoes that have a wonderful gravy on them? Served along with some good meat and vegetables and a salad and fruit. What more could you ask for? That is what we are having for supper tonight. Yum!

Facebook Photos

Facebook is really neat. Within a day of our new great grandson, we see pictures of him and his sister on Facebook. Technology is really great. I think we are beginning to take it so much for granted, I do not know if we really appreciate it enough. It is fun to keep up with family and friends on Facebook and they enjoy it too.

Oakley Gas Can Sunglasses

Sometimes you need specialty sunglasses. You may be in need of sunglasses that are stress resistant, yet lightweight. By checking into the Internet for Oakley Gas Can Sunglasses you will find they have just the sunglasses that meet these needs. You can get them in several colors of lenses and can read up on all the statistics in regard to these specialty sunglasses. Be sure to talk to them about their breakage protection plan. They have a toll-free number if you have other questions you need answered also. These glasses are tough and can take the abuse and their lenses meet and exceed the ANSI standards.

New Great Grandson

Every baby is special. However, when they are part of your family, they are extra special. At least we think so. Little sister just received a little baby brother Monday. We gained a great grandson and are so happy for his parents. He's going to be a charmer, that's for sure. Congratulations to the happy parents.

Flirty Lingerie

The holidays are quickly creeping up on us and before we know it, it will be Christmas. Have you been thinking about your Christmas list of gifts for those you love? I am sure that lingerie will be high on your list of the gifts so many women would love to receive.

There are nothing like sexy garter belts to set a fire under any man. And they make a woman feel so sexy, she is just going to love it.

If you haven't ever considered getting lingerie as a gift, then perhaps now is the time to do just that. In checking the Internet, you will see how lovely and exciting it can be. They have beautiful garter belt sets, as well.

Exciting Day

This is a big day. We are patiently waiting now for the arrival of our No. 7 great grandchild. He or she should be here in another hour and a half approximately. It is very exciting. No one knows if this one will be a boy or girl. The parents want it to be a surprise so it will be and a happy one either way.

Pleasanton Motorcycle Accident

If you live in California and have had a bad motorcycle accident than you need a Pleasanton motorcycle accident attorney. You need someone who knows the ins and outs of motorcycles themselves. One who rides one and knows all about them. One who can reconstruct the scene of an accident. Were you hit by a car and you feel like you are getting a raw deal? You need the best attorney you can get with the most experience possible. It is easy to call the 800 phone number and get started on your claim.

Jobs in Sales

You may believe that Jobs in Sales are hard to find today. However, if you will check into the Internet, you will be very surprised to learn that there are thousands of jobs out there just waiting for the right person to apply. That person could be you. By filling out an easy form, you can connect with many other sales professionals and connect up with employers. It is easy to check out job postings also. Get your resume posted and get a move on the way up to a better job and higher pay. What are you waiting for?

Life Insurance Rate

My dad was always big on buying lots of life insurance to protect his family. It is a very good idea for everyone to have some good life insurance. But where do you find a life insurance rate that is affordable? By checking into the Internet, of course. It really is not that hard to find low cost life insurance. And a quick form to fill out will get you a quick quote so you can decide which is best for you. It really is important so don't put it off.

Orlando Vacations

It is getting colder every day and freezing at night. It won't be long until the snow is flying and we are socked in for the winter. That makes me start thinking about orlando vacations. And getting on the Internet, I found all kinds of specials that will save me a great deal of money. Not only that but packages often contain tickets to Disney and that sure is a plus too.

Pet Beds

I have the sweetest little Boston Terrier named Holly. I have been thinking about pet beds because it gets so cold here in the winter. She has been sleeping on an old pillow on the floor up until now. That is okay for summertime but we turn down the heat at night and wouldn't a bed with a warmer be just perfect for her? Also, a folding one would be great for when we go on trips or it can just be moved from room to room at home. The prices are reasonable too.

xbox 360

It is getting close to Christmastime and I am sure you are starting to make out your lists for the gifts you will be shopping for. No doubt, someone on your list wants an xbox 360. I got on the Internet and it didn't take me long to find this place. It has all the accessories too and you can choose your price range and go right to it. Saves a lot of wear and tear and stress on you to have things delivered right to your door rather than fight all the other shoppers.

Household Chores/911 call

This was one of those days. I washed all the bedding on two beds. Then washed the dogs comforter that she sleeps on. Had to run to the store for cough syrup and sudafed for my husband who has a cold and terrible cough. Got home and made a big batch of homemade rice soup. Next was the kitchen floor. Since my knee revision, it has been sadly neglected. I got it swept and mopped and it looks great. Also the bathrooms got cleaned again. Then it was time to get the mail, so went to the Post Office and got stamps. Decided to wash the car before it gets any colder and freezes the doors shut. Got into the car wash. Door shuts on both ends. Put my money in and it wouldn't take it. Used the cell phone and called 911 and told her my problem and we both laughed and she called the owner of the car wash. He took my money and got it going. I told him I drove to the front thinking it would let me out since I hadn't paid, but the door didn't open. He said it should have. I am just glad I had the cell phone with me.

More Birthdays

My brother had another birthday November 10. Seems there are quite a few birthdays in November. One of our sons is having a birthday November 23 and for his birthday, he is probably going to get a new little niece or nephew. They don't know which yet but it isn't long now. Just a few more days. Happy Birthday Little Bro. Keep on posting and posting on Facebook.

Thoughts on Life and Death

No matter how old you live to be, life is short. The Bible says life is like a vapor. That is certainly true. As you get older, you look back and wonder where all those years went so quickly. Also, there is joy in Heaven when a Christian who has accepted Jesus as Savior, passes from this life into Heaven. Today, a family member passed from this life to Heaven and she is no longer burdened with the illness of this world. For her it is a happy day, but for her immediate family it is also a sad day of loss of a loved one.

The Babies are on the Way

We will soon have two more great grandchildren. What is your guess? Are they going to be boys or girls? We know that one is going to be a boy for sure. But the other one is anyone's guess. I am guessing a boy there too. So I won't be surprised if we have two new great grandsons before Christmas. What fun having new babies for Christmas.

Christmas Party Invitations

It is time to start thinking about that Christmas party or parties that you want to have this year. Have you thought about different themes? There are so many varying kinds of parties and it would be great to have one that is unique and different from everyone else. Along with that you need Christmas party invitations that go along with your theme. And it would be great also to be able to have a large selection to choose from. Time to start thinking about it and make out that guest list too.

Diet Pills

Here it is almost time for the Holidays. And you know what that means? Lots of good food and goodies. Almost everyone has their favorite recipes out and have even started baking cookies and making candies. What is a person to do when they want to lose some weight before all that eating starts? Well, I want to get some diet pills and get a jump start on it. If I can lose a few pounds early, then I won't have to be so careful watching my weight over Thanksgiving and Christmas. I'll be able to enjoy those big meals and parties without feeling guilty. But I know I need to do a little research to be sure what I am taking is safe and will work to lose those pounds before I spend a lot of money on those pills.

Appetite Suppressant

I am tired of eating like a rabbit. If I have another salad, I think I will start hopping around the room. What I could use is a really good appetite suppressant. Something that would take away my appetite so I could lose this awful excess weight I have been carrying around for a long time now. Diets and exercise don't seems to do it so I think it is time to take another step and get something to suppress my appetite. I would love to lose 12 pounds in 2 weeks so I need to look into it.

Business Plan Writer

You have all the right ideas and plans for starting a new business. But when you go to start trying to raise funds for that business, you get no where. In my opinion, what you need is an experienced business plan writer who knows how to write the correct plan that will reach your goals. It takes experience to be a good plan writer and I would check out the Internet and get testimonials from a company before I employed them to write a plan for me. Doesn't that sound simple and reasonable?

Cardboard Display

When you walk through stores, what catches your eye first? Generally, I would say it is the cardboard display. Many such displays contain special items that are on sale. Often they direct you to the area you are looking for. Such displays are very important to all businesses and they want them to look right. It is rather important that they are creative and not all generic so that they catch the customer's attention. It also depends on what type of display is needed, whether it is a corrugated, counter, or cardboard one.

Modern Furniture

My home dates back to the 1950's and I think it is about time that I get some modern furniture. In looking around the Internet I found quite a selection of wonderful pieces that will transform my home into a new place. That will do wonders for my moral. I found a Curvet 3 Seat Sofa in the most wonderful tomato color. That color may sound a little funny to you. However, you just have to see it. I want to check out a great many other pieces to go with it.

Buy Memory

I have been having computer problems and it seems my memory is getting full. I a told that what I need to do is buy memory. So I began searching through the Internet to see what is available and how much it costs. I found a site where I can get just what I need and save money at the same time. I know you, too, are shopping for the lowest prices for great quality.

70th Birthday Open House

We went to an Open House yesterday. It was an invitation to help a lady in our church celebrate her 70th birthday. I felt it was a bit young for an Open House. It seems most people wait until they are 80. But then again, a lot of people don't reach 80. Therefore, maybe it is a good idea. We had lots of good food to eat and it was like a family reunion for her with many of her family coming and also friends she went to school with.

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

Business Alarms

It is just as important to have a good security system in a small business as a large business. It is equally important to have business alarms in businesses in small towns, as well as, big cities. I once worked for a computer business that had their business broken into. Computers, parts and cash were stolen and being in a small town, the Police had no leads and were unable to catch the culprits. If they had been prepared with an alarm, no doubt they would not have been robbed and the Police would have been alerted quickly. We all need to be prepared for break-ins and robberies, especially in this economy. We see a great many happening in our small town area as well as the larger cities close by. All businesses and homes, as well, should be prepared with a secure system to prevent such happenings and to also keep employees safe.

Pond Supplies

Keeping a pond clean and free from algae is very important. A good pump is a necessity. There are a number of pond supplies that you need to keep your pond fresh and clean. Not only that, but it is a good idea to put a light out there so it can be seen at night. Special prices can be found on the Internet for these. Do you have fish in your pond? If so, you want to keep the water clean of waste and keep your fish healthy. They are such a joy to watch. Pond filters are needed to get rid of excess debris and fish food. Aerators are most important as well.

Sony Vaio

Are you just about fed up with your old laptop? Have you been thinking about buying a new one? A Sony Vaio is quite functional. You can get them new at a discounted price and even get used ones at discounted prices. Free shipping is also a plus. I have been looking around and have found bargains on the Internet. I think I would like a silver one instead of black for a change and a colorful mouse would be fun too.

Office Furniture

What type of office do you desire? Do you wish for a more modern look or a more comfortable look? Most businesses require a conference room or training room, as well. In selecting the proper office furniture you can give totally different impressions of your business. It is good to have a one stop shop for your furniture and fast delivery is very important, as well.

Plasma Mounts

The television set is the centerpiece of every living room or family room in America or anywhere else in the world. You want to be sure you have the correct plasma mounts for your screen. It is important to be sure you have the right mounting brackets and installation hardware to do a proper job. The new plasma televisions take special mounts. I know ours does.

Rain Again

It is raining again. We had about 3 decent days and the farmers were trying very hard to get into wet fields and get the crops out. We saw many semis and tractors with double wagons sitting at the elevator. It will be a long night for the elevator from now on in every town. However, now it is supposed to rain again for several days. That is bad. We are just hoping it doesn't snow early again or a lot of it.

Doctor Exams

It is that time again when we have lots of doctor appointments. Fasting blood tests are on the list with follow up appointments. Then now they require a doctor's breast exam before you can have a mammogram. My knee surgery checkup is due in 2 weeks too. When I had it done in August, I never thought we would have snow before my last checkup but we have had a little snow about 3 times. That is way too early.

Weight Loss Product

I wonder just how many weight loss product there are actually on the market today. It seems like we are bombarded with them through the mail, in magazines, television and even in the local newspaper. Each one will work wonders for you or will they? We all need to research and find out what the top products are and if they are really safe? Are you throwing your money away or will you get results at last. And by all means, I want to know what ingredients are in them and what they can do to me.

Mail Time

It is time to go get the mail. We have about a quarter of a block to walk to our mailboxes. They are all locked and secured so you need your key. The weather has been rotten so it isn't the most fun walking to get the mail. And then to find out it is all ads and catalogs. Now is the season for catalogs by the dozen. A letter would be most welcome instead of all the junk mail.

Snow in October

It just keeps snowing overnight. We are about 30 degrees below normal around here. We should not have any snow until at least November sometime. Now there is all kinds of rain and snow on the corn and beans. The farmers are going to have to spend a lot of money to dry the corn, if they can just get it out of the fields. The weather is not cooperating. They say we could see more flakes tonight.

Gold Coin

I think a great many people are looking for a safe and secure place to put their money. They want investments that will last and not disappear as so much of their money has disappeared on the stock market on Wall Street lately. Precious metals have always been a good investment. Even civilizations of old knew that and it has carried on up to today. That is why gold coin has always been a good investment. They have a monetary value and grow in value. This company has much experience and a dedicated experienced staff to help people invest in various forms of gold, along with other precious metals. They also provide places for you to keep your investments safe.

It is always fun to go to a baby shower. They have so many new things these days. I am way behind on the latest gifts for babies. Toys have changed so much too. It is always fun to enjoy the various types of finger foods too. This cake was made by a grandaughter-in-law. She is very talented and it added so much to the party.

The Coffee Pot Died

It was the morning the coffee pot died. It would heat up the plate under the pot but would not pump any water through. We tried everything we could think of. Then poured hot water through the coffee in the filter and that was ok but not perfect. So we got in the car and went to the store. They had a lot of coffee pots to choose from and got a good Proctor Silex. It has different settings for milder or stronger coffee and makes quite strong coffee on mild but it works good and looks good too.

Sight Reading Music

I love to play the piano. Also, I enjoy so much listening to someone else play. I envy their ability to just sit down and seemingly effortlessly play music without hesitation. For myself, it is different.

I took piano lessons for two years and I could never quite get the hang of counting the timing while trying to read the music and play at the same time. How wonderful it would be to be able to just sit down and look at the music and play.

Whenever we got together for family gatherings, I was embarrassed. Someone would always point me out and say I could play. Please play some music for us. It just was not that easy. But now by checking into this website, I have found out how I can do that. I am sure many of you feel the same way and will want to look into this and take advantage of learning sight reading music.

Grandchildren are Fun

Grandchildren are a great deal of fun. Our children have two grandchildren already. Here is a picture of grandpa (our son-in-law) having a good time with his granddaughter. My, how time flies. It seems like only yesterday that we were taking care of their little children and now they have a child of their own. They are truly a gift from God.

Baby Shower

We are having a baby shower for a new great grandchild next Sunday. It is a different kind of shower since it is a second baby in the same family. It is a book and/or diaper shower. It will be fun to get together with other great grandchildren too and some relatives we haven't seen for a while. I think it will be fun. The new baby will be a brother or sister to Kaelyn, pictured above.

School Sales of Products

We have a number of children in our neighborhood who are in school. Now is the time they all seem to come around selling everything from pizza to chocolate. I bought two frozen cherry pies this time. Last time I got 2 apple pies.

In addition to that, they are selling cookie dough. The cookie dough factory is right here in our town and they make the dough in little buckets for freezing. They only sell it to people for fund raisers. Last time I got Heath bar cookie dough and chocolate chip cookie dough. The chips are more like small chunks and are they ever good!

The dough keeps in the refrigerator for 3 months after it is thawed or almost indefinitely in the freezer. It is really neat to have a tub sitting in the refrigerator so that you can bake as many or as few cookies as you want. I like to bake 9 on a cookie sheet and put them in a tupperware container where they keep very well. They are nice and soft, however, if you like a crisp cookie, you can bake the a minute or two longer and you have nice crisp cookies. It is really convenient.

Safety Products

In manufacturing or any type of work environment, I feel the most important part of the job are the safety products . It is very important that the workers in all fields have the proper gear such as safety glasses, protective clothing and hearing protection are just a few of the items needed.

Many jobs require hard hats and special gloves and if they are working with certain materials, it is important to have the correct respirators to protect their health. Check out this Texas company that specializes in all types of proper gear for working people.

Space Station

We heard on the news last night that we could see the Space Station in the night sky last night. You can also see it tonight followed by Endeavor. They will soon be returning to earth. It is really a shame that they had to worry about dodging space junk out in space that would do some real damage. We worry about keeping the earth clean and mess up space with our junk.

Man parts of the country are experiencing long periods of drought. Our family in Wisconsin lives in kind of a pocket where it rains all around them but no rain for them. It has been quite dry here now for a couple of weeks but the 10 day outlook looks wet after we get past Labor Day. The crops just have not had enough heat either to mature so they are behind. The farmers are praying we won't have an early frost. That could be devastating to the yields.

It seems that almost every day you hear of a new diet pill. Well, this is the first time I have heard of testoripped. I thought I better check it out on this website and see if it is good or not. One thing about this company, they completely analyze all diet pills and list the ingredients and what they will do or not do for you. In reading about this particular one, I have not decided if it is good or bad. Why don't you read up on it too and see what you think before you try it?

Plasma TVs

Now is the time to be looking into plasma tvs if you haven't already bought one. They are so clear you feel like you are right there.

Now you can go to this website and find a huge selection of HD TVs, just what you are looking for. And check out the prices. They are great too.

Carpal Tunnel

The neighbor lady had carpal tunnel surgery yesterday. They told her she could go back to work if she wanted to the next day. I told her she better wait a couple days. I know the surgery is much simpler with laser these days but it still takes awhile to heal. She has up to 8 weeks off work and she uses her hands and arms a lot. I see she stayed home today and I am glad she decided to do that. It is hard to work left handed when you are right handed.

Headstart Bus

The little yellow Headstart Bus is driving up now every morning to pick up the little 3 year old next door. She has cried for the last two mornings but I am sure once she gets to school she has a very good time. I used to be a bus aide for Headstart and watched the kids that were on my bus grow up. Many of them don't remember me anymore but I remember them and it is fun to see the little 4 yr old boy, now 6' tall and working in the local Pizza Ranch. It is always fun to run into one of my "little" kids as now they are practically grown.

Mexican Food

Tonight we are going out for Mexican food. We haven't been out there for nearly a month due to my surgery. Today our favorite waitress dropped in to visit us. She said she would but we never really thought she would. We have a great visit and she brought me a neat get well card. She said she almost came tomorrow and brought Tex Mex but she thought it wouldn't keep very well overnight. She was happy to hear we would be there to eat and see her tonight. She has a cute little 4 year old daughter.

First Day of School

The little neighbor girl is only 3 years old and she started in Headstart this morning. The little yellow bus drove up and she got on and cried and cried. They had quite a time getting her settled before the driver could take them all to school. I bet when she got there she loved it. They serve them 2 good meals, breakfast and lunch and they have so much to play with including a computer and they teach them a great deal. It will be interesting to see if she is excited about going again tomorrow.


You know we just take shopping for granted. It is an easy task really but when you are using a walker or crutches, it is a whole new ball game. My husband doesn't want to take me along as I am too slow. However, he can never find anything and I am afraid he is going to come home with the wrong foods. He does pretty good on the basics but since our grocery store expanded, there are so many kinds of breads, it is hard to find the one you are used to. I told him to ask the clerks and they are very helpful. I am glad he can do some of the shopping by himself.

WHG 7 20

It hasn't been that long ago that I decided to set up my own domain. I like to post on all kinds of subjects and had the idea of what I wanted it to be called. Also I decided on what I wanted to name my new domain of my very own.

But that is were it came to an abrupt stop. I didn't know the first thing about webhosting and didn't know where to look. My grandson helped me find what I needed but I could not have done it without him. However, in finding dedicated server hosting at this website, I discovered I could have done it myself and not bothered him. This website gives you all the places where you can set up your own domain and lets you know how much each costs such as space. I would not have thought of that but they tell you the cost up front of the space you need.

Not only can you find out the most highly rated webhosting providers, but you are able to see right online what their host rating is. And of course, you want the best one for your money. You need to be sure they are trustworthy and competent and this website gives you all that information. Being pretty green at this, it sure is a great deal of help to find this website with all the information you need to get started. The information is invaluable.

Most of us are on a tight budget so it really helps that they list the best budget hosts for you, saving you a great deal of time.

Funeral Visitations

We went very early to a visitation of a young man, age 53, who grew up near us on the farm. The family is very dear to us and his parents are taking his death extremely hard. He had a motorcycle accident and had ridden them for years. We just don't know how to explain the way these things happen. But one thing we can rest assured that he is in Heaven with Jesus. That is a great comfort.

A New Van

My brother got a 2007 Freestar Ford van and it is the most beautiful shade of maroon red. He sent some pictures on the Internet and I am anxious to have a ride in it. It will be awhile though before I can crawl into it. I am so short. He said he would bring a little stool to step on to get into it. When he comes, he is going to bring some homemade pie too and he makes very good pie.

Walkers and Crutches

Well, I have been dusting off my walker. I got my crutches out and dusted them off too. Going to have knee surgery so thought I better get them ready. Packing the little suitcase too. Summer time is a good time to get something like this done before it gets icy and snowy. It looks kind of cloudy today and think it is supposed to rain for the next couple of days. The crops need it.

Today, an AED is being used by all kinds of EMT's on Ambulances everywhere. They are being used more and more in places where many people gather as they are very much a life saving device. The Red Cross will give training in their use. Check out this website for a great deal of information on their use.

I have heard of them being put in schools as it isn't so uncommon anymore for a student in sports having a heart problem. Many lives have been saved because of them. Many pacemakers and being made up with AED's in them also. I think it is a good idea for for professionals and the public to be made aware of their use and life saving benefits.


Yesterday, one of my daughters came and brought me everything to re-do the bed in the bedroom. Got a new bedspread with pillow shams and throw pillow and bed skirt. Makes the whole room look different. May be changing the curtains too.

Then she went to work on the bathroom. Then she changed the shower curtain. Put up a new picture and added many extras to the counter. New soap dispenser, tooth brush holder, paper cup holder, kleenex holder and more. I got the old cup dispenser down off the wall and threw it away. It looks like a new bathroom. It is amazing how much a few things can make a huge difference. Beautiful new towels too for everyone to see.

Global Warming or Global Cooling?

It is almost the end of July and it is about 60 degrees today. Brrrr, it is cold. I have all the windows open a little and the Northwest wind is downright cold. It is supposed to get down to 49 tonight. It is great sleeping weather and sure saves on the air conditioning but it should be in the 80's. I saw on the news that Seattle and Washington and Oregon are suffering under abnormal heat. They don't have air conditioning there because normally they don't need it. Strange summer, this one.

Porcelain Tile

A very easy way to dress up your home and give it a fresh look is to add some porcelain tile in various rooms. The mosaic tiles such as the Aurora would really brighten up any bathroom. There are so many types that will fit any room and they are having a great sale right now. It is 10 percent off all tiles so what a great way to fix up your home and save money at the same time. Check out their website for lots of ideas and all the various types and colors of tile.

Stormy Weather

Sounds like we could be in for some stormy weather. It is sure hot. I just turned the fan on the furnace to circulate some air. We have had the a/c off for several days now and it was good to get fresh air into the house. It was a beautiful sunny day today and not too hot. There was a good breeze but it quit. My husband got the lawn mowed and it looks very nice. Having a small problem with the mower though.

Looking for a safe investment? Sometimes it really seems hard to do. However, in checking out this website I found that silver is a very real commodity for investments. I didn't realize that of all the silver that has been mined, 95 percent of it has already been used up by industries. Not only that but with the problems of fighting bacteria in this day and age, the health industry has found uses for it also because of its microbicidal qualities. Burn units use it for burn victims to prevent infections. I thought this was very interesting. If silver is being used up so fast, it isn't hard to figure that was is left is becoming more valuable all the time. Check this out and perhaps you will find this is the investment for you.

Taco Salads

Our brother and sister-in-law came to visit from Wisconsin this long weekend. We went many places and at one of the restaurants, they ordered taco salads. I had never seen them served in boat shaped-like dishes. They had broken up the taco shell the taco usually is in, and put it into the ingredients in the salad and mixed it in with the lettuce, olives, cheese,meat and all the fixings for taco salad. They were easily able to eat them with a fork and I am going to have to try that at home because it was so simple and so easy to eat and just looked delicious.

The Demise of the CD

Just about the time we got used to 8-tracks, they came out with cassettes. We no sooner got a big supply of our favorite cassettes when they came out with CD's and a cassette player became obsolete. Now I guess the CD is on it's way out and everything is DVD. Our record player is an antique but it really works good and the radio will tape records onto cassettes. However, that doesn't help much. We have an old radio that will play the cassettes and you can fill it with batteries and take it along but it's too much trouble anymore. Oh yes, and the good old VCR bit the dust too so I am hanging onto the ones I have until they quit. When does this all end?


The medical profession uses so many kinds of electrodes but this online website has them all, I believe. In checking their website, I found many kinds and you could save quite a bit of money buying from them. They are also giving free shipping until midnight Thursday so if you hurry you can save even more. They also have a complete inventory of all other medical supplies and even exercise equipment. Look up their website for all your medical needs. They have been in business since 1996 but in 1998, they expanded to include many retail products and Maternity/Baby Supplies and nutritional diet supplements. Before you shop elsewhere check with them to see if they have what you need.


There are sure a lot of different kinds of mattresses these days. We have one regular standard mattress on one bed and a pillow top mattress on another. It seems today that the adjustable beds are making a lot of headway in the market. But I have also heard that the Sleep Number bed is the one to get as you can really adjust it to suit you. It is a real puzzle as to which is best. Our son and his wife have tried quite a few and taken them back and have ended up with the Sleep Number bed so it must be pretty comfortable.

Old Theater Restoration

Ou little town had a going theater back in the 40's. For many years after it shut down it was a pharmacy. Several pharmacists came and went and the last one built a new building on the edge of town, leaving the building empty. A committee in town got together and decided to strip the building down and see what was there. They found old paintings on the walls from the original theater. They gave tours during the last summer town celebration and it was quite interesting to see it. There is a lot of work to be done yet, but I think it will be real addition to the town for us to have a theater here again. The young people have little to do but sports and the bowling alley closed, so it will give them some entertainment, along with the older generation as well.

Degree Online

What better way to get your degree online than at this fine accredited online college? They have just recently put out their latest podcast "Inside Online Education" and it focuses on earning an online degree. They regular interview students, faculty and staff and make podcasts that they make available to you for a small cost.

Local Fairs

This is the time of year when all the local fairs are going on. We used to go to a lot of them but time changes things. It gets harder and harder to walk what seems like miles and miles around a fair. Our local fair is this week and we may get down there one night. Will see how it goes. I think the weather is supposed to be good all weekend. I really hope so. All the 4H kids are having their County Fairs too and showing off their animals. We have friends who have kids attending those. Hope they win some Blue Ribbons.

Crops in Iowa

The corn and bean crops in north central Iowa look beautiful right now. They are at their peak. The corn is tasseling and we will be seeing the ears forming very soon. Looking out across the beautiful green bean fields is a real treat. The corn was about waist to shoulder high by the 4th of July. They always say it should be knee high by the 4th but it was way taller than that again this year. Now the farmers hope and pray there won't be any hail storms or bad wind storms to knock the corn down and make it hard to combine. Summer is going way too fast and it hasn't really been hot as it usually is. In fact, it has been downright cold many days. That doesn't help the crops grow.

Family Vacation

It is summer and vacation is on everyone's mind. Where do you want to go this year? How about a family vacation on the white sand beaches of the Riviera Maya? There are five of the loveliest Karisma Hotels there, each one a bit different from the rest.

If you feel all tied up in knots from stress, you may want to reserve a beautiful room at the Azul Blue where they don't know the meaning of stress. You own personal butler will unpack your suitcases and draw you an aromatic bath. Then you can put on your beach robe and go out on the white sand beach and relax in one of the four poster cabana beds. Why not go to the spa and let them pamper you with all kinds of soothing treatments. You will feel like a new person. Visit their website and see the four other fabulous Hotels available. I know there are more than one you will just love.

Swing Sets and Slides

Our neighbors have a really nice swing set for their 4 kids and a slide. It is fun to watch the 3 year old climb up the slide backwards. Why is it kids like to climb up the slide as well as slide down it? I can remember doing the very same thing. I was keeping an eye on her though as she would climb up the slide and then stand on the top and I was hoping she wouldn't lose her balance and fall off. She didn't, fortunately. They all ride their bikes a lot and she has training wheels yet but she's out there with the older kids riding every day.

The Neighbor's Cats

The neighbors have two cats named Ely and LC. Funny names aren't they? They got them both from a shelter and they both needed good homes. They have an excellent loving family taking care of them now. LC is older and sleeps a lot but Ely is full of it. You have to watch him because when the weather isn't too hot or cold, he will make a dash for the outside. I am going to feed them and make sure their litter box is ok while the neighbors go on vacation. Ely spills his water sometimes but they make very little mess and are really good cats.

Cookie Dough

In our little town, we have a cookie dough factory. They make it in buckets that will keep a very long time in the freezer. It will also keep a long time in the refrigerator when you thaw it out. I love it because you can bake 6 cookies or 3 dozen at a time. You can bake just as many as you need or want.

It comes in all kinds of wonderful flavors, from chocolate chunk, sugar, peanut butter, chocolate chocolate chunk, etc. Our church is having a fund raiser and lots of people in the church are selling it. It is only $10 a bucket and I am going to have to get a couple buckets. With just the two of us, I like to bake 6-12 at a time so I always have a few fresh cookies. White chocolate macadamia nut is also a great favorite. Doesn't it just make you hungry for a warm yummy cookie?

Colon Cancer Surgery

My husband had colon cancer surgery on April 29. It was a huge success. The tumor was very large and beginning to grow into the side of the colon. He had a colonoscopy 5 years ago and there was nothing there so you can see how fast they can grow. They took 19 lymph glands and all 19 were perfectly cancer free. How blessed we are. The Lord took care of everything.

Then he had to have another lesser surgery in early June and that was a great success too. It is great to have such a good God and he provides us with the best surgeons available.

Ugg Womens Shoes

Before we know it, winter will be back upon us. You know trudging through the snow that your feet are the first thing to get cold. Travel with me to Australia by way of the Internet and visit the website Ugg womens shoes. This is the place to get delightfully soft, warm, sheepskin lined shoes, boots and slippers too. There is a very good chance that once you try their footwear, you won't want any other. I can almost feel the softness on my feet now, just sitting here imagining myself in a pair of those marvelous boots.

Poison Darts and World War II

Back in 1941, England looked into dropping poison darts from planes on German troops. This was when Britain was facing a possible Nazi invasion after the fall of France. The National Archives made public formerly top secret documents. They show that plans called for packing more than 30,000 darts into a single cluster bomb that could saturate a zone where enemy forces were exposed. They had already tested the poisoned darts against sheep and goats at a biological weapons station in Canada. However, they were never used again humans for military purposes. Wouldn't that have been horrendous?

4th of July

The 4th of July is almost upon us. That means the year is all down hill from here. The corn is blowing in the wind and the beans are really growing too. We are enjoying temperatures in the 70's instead of 90-100 and the humidity is way down. It is so nice to have the windows open and no clouds or rain in the forecast for several days now. Hope everyone has a fun day on the 4th. Have a family picnic or go see fireworks or something fun.

Fashion Jewelry Designers

Having been in business since l971, this company is expert in designing the most lovely fashion jewelry. You can find them on the internet while checking for fashion jewelry designers like I did. I have always wanted a beautiful diamond ring and I was able to find a great selection here that look just like the real thing but are not. However, they are even more beautiful, I think, than many real diamond rings I have seen. Not only that but they have the most gorgeous bracelets and if you have been thinking of replacing your old watch, check out their watches. They design excellence into each piece and you won't find them in any retail store either. That makes them even more special.

Double Grandparents Again!

One of our twin daughter and her husband are going to be double grandparents again around the first of December. They have twins themselves and 4 years ago both twins got married a week apart. Then 2 years later they both had their first child, one a boy and the other a girl. Now those twins and their mates are expecting their second child and you guessed it, both girls are due about the same time again. So in a very short time, their folks will have 4 grandchildren and we will have a total of 8 great grandchildren. Isn't that neat?

Uncles and Aunts

Uncles and Aunts are a very important part of all families. Some are special and more of a favorite than others but they are all important just the same. Uncle Neal is special to all my kids because he kind of grew up with them. I got married young and he was 3 years younger yet so he grew up with our family too. Our oldest boy has so many actions, faces, and mannerisms of his Uncle Neal that sometimes I call him Neal. Relatives are such an important part of every family.

Master's Degree

Our grandson, Josh, got his Master's Degree last week. He is the first in the family to get such a degree. Here is a picture of him and his family. They all had a good time touring New York City, Washington and Philadelphia while they were there with more of the family.

It is quite a sight to see the Statue of Liberty in person. My husband remembers it when his ship went by it leaving New York for Germany way back in l951. I think it something you would never ever forget.

We are very proud of Josh and all of our family and their families. Our family has really grown in nearly 59 years.

Insurance Quote

If you are like me, you have heard half a dozen ads on television lately talking about the high cost of car insurance. They are advising you to get quotes and compare an insurance quote with your present insurance and see if you can save as much as hundreds of dollars per year. That sounds like a good idea to me.

It doesn't take you long to go online to this website. There you can find the type of insurance you are looking for. You can fill in your zip code fill out a quick form and find any type of quote you need. You will not only find car insurance, but home, life,health, you name it, they will have several quotes for you to choose from quickly. Try it and see if you can save some money in these tough times.

Have you ever been to Branson? It is a family place to go to. We love the shows there and we have gone with our bank a couple years ago. I don't know yet if they are going this year, but I would dearly love to go. I am working hard at making money on the Internet and hopefully can save up enough to go. My husband had major surgery and it is questionable as to whether he could ride there but he should be in good shape by late fall or early winter. We went once year near the Christmas season and it was just beautiful. It would sure be fun.

Hospital Bed

When you have an ill family member, it is really good if you can get a hospital bed for your home. They do much better at home and get more needed attention from loved ones in their own home.

Just check out their website and order everything you need for home care.

Acid Attack in Hong Kong

In a busy Hong Kong shopping district, an assailant hurled acid, injuring 24 pedestrians, according to Police there. What a horrifying event!! It was the third in a series of acid attacks that have hurt about 100 people. Isn't that terrible?

Police said a bottle of corrosive liquid was thrown on a crowd in the Mong Kok district on Monday. None of the victims, ages 4 to 49, was seriously burned. That is a miracle.

Hong Kong leader, Donald Tsang, condemned the attack, saying it was "cold blooded and evil" and the assailant was "scum of the society." Investigators have posted a reward for information leading to an arrest. I hope they get him.

Terror Cell Suspects

Four men accused of belonging to an Islamic terror cell that plotted to attack U.S. targets in Germany announced during their trial on Tuesday that they are prepared to confess.

It could be two weeks before such confessions are given. The trial is not set to resume until june 23.

Blogging for Cash

I have been blogging for cash now for several years. Things have slowed down quite a bit but we are keeping up with it. It is a good way to make extra money when you are retired and it takes quite a bit of your time, so it is good that I am retired. It does get boring if you don't have any hobbies though and I have never been good at knitting or any crafting or anything like that. But I love to type so this is great for me. I am always looking for extra ways to make money with my computer and our family is very helpful.

Kitchen Sinks

Women and also some men too, spend a great deal of time in the kitchen. There are always meals to prepare and snacks as well. It is always nice to have great kitchen sinks to work with. This website has wonderful sinks that are not just the usual style sink but more contemporary sinks that really set off your kitchen. I especially like the American Standard "culinaire" sink as it is so attractive. But no matter what type you like, I think you will find it here.

I have fallen behind in my posting as my husband spent 11 days in the hospital. Did you know that the hospital is the worst place there is to get any rest? If you have never been in one, you would not know that, but it is true. They give you something to help you sleep at night and once you get to sleep, a nurse comes in with a flashlight, wakes you up to check your blood pressure, etc. So what happens to your sleep? There you lie awake like an owl and can't get back to sleep. Then people coming to visit you wonder why you look so tired and run down.

My husband has been in the hospital a week now after colon cancer surgery. He has a stomach ache all the time and hasn't been able to eat anything. They had to hook up an IV again this morning and finding a vein is very difficult for the nurses. Then they keep giving him pills for antibiotics which upset the stomach so you can't seem to win. I know hospitals are the place to be when you are sick but sometimes you seem to get sicker before you get better

Isn't the traffic getting terrific everywhere. I think every person in every family now has a car and is out on the road. It has gotten so much more congested just in the last couple of years. The other night I had to drive home in the rain and it was tough meeting all the cars headlights in the rain with the windshield wipers going. And the windshield tended to fog over all the time so you had to keep the defroster going all the time too.


There is such a difference in the arrangements various greenhouses provide. Some we have found make up the most spectacular arrangements to send to your friends and relatives in times of sorrow, illness or a special celebration. Today my husband received the most spectacular flower arrangement I have ever seen. It had beautiful deep red and orange bird of paradise flowers in it along with much more. I have never seen anything quite like it but it is gorgeous. He also received a beautiful African Violet and I have never seen one this color either. So pretty.

Every thing today seems topsy turvy. The stock market is a mess. People are losing their life savings for retirement so quickly it is hard to imagine. Stocks dropped like rocks. Homes are being foreclosed because the people cannot pay their mortgages. Now if they had been thinking ahead, they would have invested some of their money in gold because it gains in value and keeps its value. It is not too late to start now, if you haven't already done so. Get on the Internet and contact this company where you can purchase and store safely also. They will be happy to assist you in every possible way. They are very experienced, having been in business since 1990.

Rain and Night Driving

I used to have an Aunt that traveled alot by car and she loved to drive. She said her favorite time to drive was at night in the rain. I would say that is my least favorite time to drive. It is hard to see the dividing lines between lanes when it is raining hard and the lights of the cars reflect funny on the wet windshield. I had to drive home in the rain last night about 25 miles and I do not like it. The rain has finally stopped this morning and I don't think it is supposed to rain until Monday. I am sure glad of that.


We are going to have 2 more grandchildren this year for Christmas. The girls are due almost the same day near Dec. 1. Our granddaughter and her husband have a little 17 month old daughter now. Our grandson and his wife have a little l7 month old son. And now they are both going to do it again. This will make our son-in-law and daughter double grandparents for the second time in 4 years. It is one for the books I think. Not only that but the grandson and granddaughter are twins and were married a week apart so they continue to do everything together it would appear. Such excitement.

Online Colleges

One thing is for sure. When you take courses to get your degrees or certifications or PHD's at online colleges it takes a great deal of stress out of your life. Over 24,000 students have enrolled and found that to be true last year. They enrolled from 45 other countries and 50 states because they knew this college is a fully accredited online university. Founded in 1993, it has continued to grow and so many have gotten their degrees and become excellent employees for their employers. Jeannie McGuire is a perfect example of such a student that obtained her Master's Degree here and went on to bigger and better things. She was just awarded the 2008 Sunny Andrews Award for her outstanding commitment to social work.

Taliban Militants Tighten Grip in Pakistan

Pushing out from a valley where the government has agreed to impose Islamic law and patrolling villages as close as 60 miles from the capital, Taliban militants have extended their grip in northwestern Pakistan.

Castro and Obama

Fidel Castro says President Barack Obama "misinterpreted" his brother Raul's remarks regarding the United States. He bristled at the suggestion that Cuba should free political prisoners or cut taxes on dollars people send to the island.

Raul Castro touched of a whirlwind of speculation last week that the U.S. and Cuba could be headed toward a thaw after nearly a half century of chilly relations. The speculation began when the Cuban president said leaders would be willing to sit down with their U.S. counterparts and discuss everything including human rights, freedom of the press and expression and political prisoners.

I never realized how many cancer websites there are. The gal at the hospital gave me a list of websites that you could count on to give you the truth about all kinds of cancer.
