Cold Rain

BRRRR We are having cold rain now and it will get colder as the day goes on. It is supposed to turn to snow later and into tomorrow. We are supposed to get some more high winds with it too. I know the rain will freeze again and I hate it when everything gets so slippery. I went to the store and got two bags of ice melt so we are ready for it. Just got the driveway cleaned off and now it is starting in again. It is so dark and dreary today you need a lamp on to enjoy yourself. You can't sit down to read anything without some light.

Two Thanksgivings

We have a lot to be thankful for and another one of those things is that we are invited to two Thanksgiving dinners this year. Tomorrow is the first one, of course and the other will be on Saturday. We will get to see lots of our grandchildren this way and that is pretty neat. Saturday we will be seeing four little great grandchildren and that is always special too. Looking forward to lots of good food and fellowship with our family.

Grammy Love

There is nothing like Grammy's love. It is fun having your own children but I think grandchildren are more fun. I know one of the reasons is that you don't have them 24/7 and have all the work and responsibility that goes along with your own children. That is what makes it so much fun to get together with your grandchildren. You always have a good time and they are so happy to see you.

First Snows

Well we had our first little snows this weekend. It really came down in huge snowflakes and actually looks pretty. However, as winter goes on and it comes in blizzards, it isn't so pretty anymore. The older you get, the more you hate to see winter come with its ice and snow. The kids just love it and will make snowballs out of any amount that falls. We had quite a little coming down yesterday but then the temperatures got warmer and melted it off of everything including the roof tops. That's enough snow for now. Hope we don't get anymore this month.

Tire Chain Dealer

Every good driver knows they need good tire chains when they get out into areas where they is extremely bad weather. I know driving through the northern States can be a real challenge at time if you don't have chains for your vehicle. . Just because a tire chain is very expensive does not necessarily mean they are good ones. You want those that are easy to install such as the EasyToGo that only takes minutes to put on. You want to get back on the road and on your way as quickly as you can so you better get the ones that will do that for you. The Grip is less than $100 and is a very popular and I bet you did not know that you could put tire chains on in less than 2 minutes. It pays to shop for the best and those that won't stress you out trying to get them on your vehicle so you can get going again.

Happy 3rd Birthday

Our little great granddaughter had a wonderful birthday. She is now 3 years old. It is so hard to believe they grow up so fast. She is having a great time here eating some of her birthday cake. Her Mom made the cutest cat birthday cake and cupcakes too. You can see she is having a great time here enjoying her cake.

Dedicated Hosting

You want full time trouble shooting so that if problems crop up, they are taken care of so quickly you may not even be aware of them. You want something live expert support and the absolute availability of engineers who are qualified to take care of your business to your liking. By checking out the Internet, it is quite easy to find just such a company that is ready and willing to take on this important job for you and do a great job for you.

Best Diet Pills Ever

Are you as confused about what diet pills are best? I sure am. I think I have tried over 50 different kinds and none of them lived up to my expectations and their advertisements. So how do you find the Best diet pills ever? What I decided to do was get on my computer and check out the Internet and see if there was anyone out there that could tell me which pills were best. Not only that but I wanted to know if they are safe and have safe ingredients. Did they have any customer reviews to back up the claims? I found that someone had already done all that for me and had checked them out for the best prices and results. That is a big help.

Great Grandson has Birthday

It is hard to believe but our little great grandson is going to be 3 years old already on Saturday. It is just amazing how time flies. His little brother will be a year old on the 23rd. His folks are having a big birthday party for him on Saturday at their new farm home. That will be a great deal of fun. His Mom really knows how to decorate and make food beautiful. She is quite a homemaker. It will be a fun day with all the grandparents, aunts and uncles.


Now that blu ray is out you want to get all your favorite movies. But you do not need to pay the big prices for them. If you check out the Internet, you can get great selections such as a special on Super Hero Movies for up to 70% off. And you do not need to wait for the newest releases, you can get all you want right now. It pays to shop around and you can save a great deal of money and check out their satisfaction guarantee.

Branson Vacations

I think the most fun I have ever had has been on our Branson vacations. There is just nothing like Branson. It is a wonderful family place with so much entertainment and fun things to do. They have so many great shows with entertainers that know how to make you laugh and have a good time. We have been there many times and plan to go again. Jim Stafford is one of our all time favorites and I checked out the Internet and they have great plans for vacation packages with some tickets included to shows. If you haven't been to Branson, you have really missed something. Silver Dollar City is one place you won't want to miss when you go there.

MBT Shoes

Do you like to get out and run, jog or walk for exercise? If so, you might want to check out the Internet for great footwear such as mbt shoes. There are a great many extras in purchasing online. Some of those extras besides getting the 100% authentic MBT shoes is that you get the lowest prices available. They also offer you free shipping, no tax and free returns if you aren't satisfied with your purchase or perhaps, like me, you ordered the wrong size. There is a big sale on both men's and women's shoes so it is a good time to shop. There are all styles and colors to choose from and even waterproof shoes if you wish. You can even call toll-free for faster service too.

Feeding Time

It is feeding time for the grandkids and Grandpa is very busy keeping up. They are hungry and he is doing a good job of feeding them. While their parents are moving into a new home, someone has to watch the little ones so they don't get under foot. When it comes time to eat, they want to eat and they want something to eat right now. So Grandpa got busy and set it up so he could feed both at the same time. Pretty handy, Grandpa!

Business Postcards

Most businesses like to keep in contact with their present and also former customers. By sending business postcards they can easily do this. It is a simple way to let people know of appointments. For instance, our dentist sends out cute postcards whenever we have a dental appointment. We always take notice of it in the mail immediately and keep it in front of us as a reminder. By checking the Internet, it is easy to find companies that will print your business postcards in all colors and styles of your choosing. You may find that you will want to do more of this type of mailing once you check out their printing, colors and prices. It is a great way to keep in touch with your customers.


I can't think of any other part of any vehicle that is as important as the brakes. No matter whether you drive a car, truck or SUV, you must have good brakes. Brakes are something that are in constant use, especially in heavy traffic or hilly travel. They really get a workout all the time and you want to depend on them at all times. You can always tell when your brakes don't seem to take hold as well as you need them to, so naturally, you head to the repair shop to see what is wrong. I found a brake expert on the Internet that will provide 2-way shipping on orders over $50. If you are a distributor, it would, no doubt, pay you to check into places such as this to get your brakes as they have a huge inventory and are able to provide brakes for all kinds of vehicles.

Bathroom Fans

Bathroom fans are a very good item to have in your bathroom to rid the air of the humidity caused from all the showers and baths. When your fan starts acting up it is time to start shopping around for new bathroom fans. They are quite important in order to keep mold from forming around your tub or shower. They certainly help to keep your bathroom air dry and that discourages the growth of mold. Mold can be quite a health risk so it is important that your fan is working property. I checked out the Internet and they have so many beautiful fans that you have a large choice of fans and you can get one that suits the decor of your bathroom and home.

Another Wild and Windy Day

We are in for another wild and windy day today. Winds were sustained yesterday at about 26 mph but today they could be even stronger. They can do a lot of damage when they get that strong. We hear of cases where people's cars and semi's were blown off the road or blown over. It pays to be very careful when driving in these winds. We have to go out today and hope it isn't blowing so hard yet this morning.

Fun at the Fair

Our grandchildren took their little ones to the Fair and they had a great time. There was a petting zoo which they enjoyed. The little one was a little skeptical about a puppy, not having up that close to one yet. A good time was had by the whole family. The weather was just right too. It is neat to see a family having fun together.

Gold Bullion

I feel sure that it is about time that many families got serious about saving for the future and retirement. They want to retire in the way they are accustomed to at the present time. That can be hard to do. However, a very safe investment for the future and to preserve your private wealth is to buy gold bullion. You can contact the U. S. Gold Bureau and they will assist you with your purchases. They can also help educate you about gold purchases if you so desire. Perhaps, you like me, do not know all that much about purchasing gold. I do know that it has always been a safe investment and one that generally grows in value, which is certainly a good thing. They can also assist you in choosing a safe depository for your gold which would also be very important.

Holly's Visit to the Vet

Our little dog, Holly, loves to come in here and sleep by me and my computer. She is getting older now and can she snore! She gets so loud in the living room, she will almost drown out the TV. My husband will holler at her to wake her up. It's kind of funny. She can go to sleep anywhere and she owns the house so she has several chairs she sleeps in and a pillow on the floor. Her favorite place seems to be behind our rocking chair.

Homemade Pea Soup

When I got home from town this morning, I made a big batch of homemade whole pea soup. I had soaked the dried peas overnight so they were ready to cook. I just needed to put them in a big pan and start them boiling. After a bit, I added half a teaspoon of soda and it causes the peas to break out of their skins but you have to watch so it doesn't boil over. Then when they have cooked a bit, I added a diced potato and a spoonful of beef bullion to the pot. When the peas were well cooked, I added diced carrots and the broth and container of stir fry beef I had cooked the day before. I cook the beef in my pressure cooker so it is very tender. That is going to be our supper tonight along with salad and crescent rolls. Yum!


Why are men so facinated by gold? It is not only its rare beauty but they know it will preserve their wealth. It is one commodity that keeps its value and generally increases in value. That is a whole lot more than you can say for a lot of things. I heard just the other day that it was a very good safe investment to buy gold bullion. They said in order to preserve your wealth safely that you should invest in gold. There are several forms of gold - gold coins and bullion. Actually gold coins are considered ingots of pure bullion and the bullion is made into the various forms such as gold coins and gold bars. It makes them very easy to handle and store. The U. S. Gold Bureau is able to educate a person about gold and help them with their decisions of which to purchase.

Favorite TV Shows

Everyone has favorite TV shows. Mine are the cops shows. I love all the CSI shows and Law and Order. But I found a new one on TNT called Fazzoli and Isles and I just love it. It comes on at 1:00 am so I set the VCR and record it. I know VCR's are old fashioned but I love mine. I hope it never wears out because I tape a great many shows on it. I like NCIS and the Good Wife too. Criminal Minds and the Mentalist are great favorites too.


Well the elections are finally over. We have a new Governor in our State. Actually he was Governor once before so we know him quite well. When he was Governor there was a surplus in the coffers of the State and it didn't take the next Governor long to spend that and much much more putting the State in debt. We even had to cut back on Highway Patrolmen which we thought was one of the worst things they could do. We don't have enough of the now. I hope the change will be a good change. I guess we will have to wait and see.

Gold Coin

I do not know what age you are. However, there is no time like the present, no matter what age you are to start thinking of retirement. When you think of retirement, you think of enjoying yourself, living in the same manner or better than you do now. So how do you go about achieving that goal? You achieve it by making wise investments in order to preserve your wealth for the future. One way to do that is to invest in gold coin. Gold has always been a very safe investment for centuries. Everyone loves gold. They love to see it and the feel of it. It has always remained valuable and generally continues to grow in value. You can purchase gold directly from the U. S. Gold Bureau. They have an excellent staff waiting to service your needs.
