Carlos O'Kellys

This is my most favorite Mexican food restaurant. My kids invited me to join them tonight and they bought supper. It was absolutely great as usual and brought home some delicious left overs. Went shopping in Wal-Mart inbetween going to my sister-in-laws retirement party. They had a very nice party for her, a beautiful cake and snacks. Gave her a lovely plaque she can hang on the wall. Got to see her office too.

Taco Johns

I took my brother to Taco Johns today. They have a special on tacos for 69 cents each. He loves them and always eats at least 3. We also get churros that are a delicious desert. I had a taco burger today for a change. I like to change off. I brought home 2 combination burritos for supper tonight and they were very good. We like to go every Tuesday as long as the weather is good. We always have a good visit that way too over good food.

Fast CD Duplication

Are you looking to have your business and/or professional CD's duplicated? It does not matter how big or small the job, you can get fast cd duplication. If you are really in a big hurry, you can even get same day or next day service. In checking the Internet, it is easy to find a company that will copy your discs for you and they offer three kinds of labels to choose from or no label if that is what you want. Music, audio files, data CD's can all be duplicated for you and they will be the same high quality as your original. The prices are low too and you can see them on the Internet.

Twas the Day After Christmas

Here it is and it won't be Christmas for another year. But that year will fly by just like the rest of them did. It sneaks up on you so fast and it is over in a flash. Next is New Year's Eve. I had so much fun playing a game with my kids and grandkids. It was so much fun watching the little ones open their presents. Kids make Christmas. They are so excited over every single thing about Christmas.

Home on my Own

Guest post written by Derick Burks

Having a home of my own has always been a dream of mine and I’m finally realizing it, if not a bit less dramatically than I thought. When I inherited this house I would have thought it wouldn’t take long for me to decide to sell it but something about this place stuck with me and I decided to keep it and work on it – restore it back to its previous glory. I am finally at a point now where I’m doing things like installing Massachusetts adt and putting in a doggie door but those first few months were more about making sure the electrical was up to code and that the bathtub wasn’t going to fall through the ceiling. I love being a homeowner, like I said, but I never imagined I’d have to learn how to be a contractor at the same time. That being said, it’s nice knowing exactly what’s inside of this house and that I made it what it is today – that’s something I feel like I can be proud of.

Sister's Visit

My sister came to visit today. Her birthday was the 15th so I took her out for a belated Birthday lunch. We went to the Pizza ranch. It was really crowded with people. I think some companies were having their Christmas party in there. They could hardly make pizzas fast enough for everyone. It is good to see a business doing so well in a small town. We had a great visit and a great lunch.

Christmas Shopping

I took my brother Christmas shopping yesterday. It was a great deal of fun to be able to get him some things that he would not ordinarily be able to afford himself. We had a very good time and we are very close and always have been close. So we always have a good time together talking over old times and such. We had a great Mexican lunch too and I got to see my niece that I had not seen in awhile. It was a fun day.

Yoga Mat Bag

Many people are attending Yoga classes now. However, what do you do with all your things when you go to class. What you really need is a good yoga mat bag. They are very convenient to carry and you can get them in several styles. You have a number of color choices as well. Perhaps you think they are too expensive, however, they are very reasonable and you can choose your own price range and style. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how low the cost of owning a yoga at bag can be and you will love the convenience.

I sure do miss my little Holly. She was the best little dog we ever had. It is too bad that dogs don't live longer. She was a Boston Terrier and she learned tricks so quick.
We really hated it when she got sick and we knew we would have to take her to the Vet and have her put to sleep. She was so much company and fun.

Switch Plate Covers

Every day in our homes, we use switch plate covers and never really think much about them. But actually they are a very important part of every home or business, anywhere there are switches. When redecorating our home, I checked out the Internet and was pleasantly surprised at how many different designs of switch plate covers there are. You can match them to your decor, choosing your favorite colors in some cases, or single or double switch plates. It is easy to pick out some that will catch visitors eyes and add good looks to your home.

Eclipse of the Moon

I got to watch a part of the lunar eclipse this morning. I could see it plainly out my west window. I saw about a good 1/3 of it and then when I came back, clouds had moved in and I missed the rest. My daughter said she got to see the moon under total eclipse. That is so neat. It won't happen again, they say, until 2014.

Tea and Cookies

There is nothing better than a good hot cup of tea and one or two fresh cookies. I decided last night I was going to bake some cookies. I had purchased a box of ready to bake frozen chocolate chunk cookies from the two Girl Scouts next door. I had the box in the freezer and decided it was time to bake some. They are already to put on your cookie sheet and nothing could be easier. You can bake a dozen or two. It makes it easy to have just a few around. Or if you have company coming, bake a couple dozen. I think there are about 4 dozen in the box so I have lots more I can bake and enjoy.

Step Throat

Saturday was to be one of our little great grandson's second birthday. However, he got sick and they found he had strep throat. Of course, the party had to be called off. That was sad for him and everyone. He is getting better and hope his brother doesn't get it also. This is the season when it sees like everyone is getting colds and more.

Christmas in Branson, Missouri

Branson is all aglow with so many beautiful Christmas lights this time of the year. They also have all Christmas shows and we saw the Miracle of Christmas, an outstanding production. At you can go in a see some exclusive videos and photos of the show. It will cause you to want to go there and see it. We were fortunate to be able to travel on a bus because of our local bank. They took us to all the best shows and best shopping malls. We also ate at great steakhouses with a variety of foods besides steak. One of the top shows is called SIX. It is six brothers that sing acapella but not only that they make all their instrumental sounds with their voices. You would swear there was a band behind them but it was the men making all the instrumental sounds. You have to see and hear it to believe it, especially the brother who did the drummer. Just amazing.

Family Thanksgiving

I joined the family of my daughter-in-law this year. It was so much fun. We laughed and laughed and visited with everyone. There were there grandmothers there including me and 4 of my many grandchildren. The women and a couple of the men joined in to paint a designed board that could be hung in your home. I have mine here in the office. We also played the most fun game that I have played in a very long time. There was much laughter and also thanksgiving for all the good things God has given us to enjoy.

Christmas Tree

I decided we have had our little fiber optic tree long enough. It is time for a new one. I just got a new one with 2000 lights on it. It is three feet tall. I like to put it on a little table. It turns all around all the time and changes about 4 different colors. It is easy to keep from year to year. Just put a cover over it and sit it in the spare room on a desk. It is ready to go so will plug it in after Thanksgiving.

Dining Room Furniture Los Angeles

Just how old is our dining room furniture? Frankly, it is so old, I do not even remember what year we got it. I see so many attractive dining room sets now that it makes me want to update ours. A good place to start would be at dining room furniture los angeles. I would love to have some of this more modern dining room furniture that makes you want to sit and enjoy your family and converse over the food and spend more time in the dining room. In comfortable stylish chairs at a beautiful table, you feel more relaxed and will spend more time enjoying your dining room rather than having it be a showplace for company. Their prices are marked way down too so you can fit it into your budget and save money here.

Garage Door Opener

The neighbor lady is having trouble with her garage door. It will not always open and sometimes it will not close. I told her she should probably get a new battery put in it. They just built the garage not too long ago though and the garage door opener is fairly new. So that might not be the problem. However, just because a battery is new, doesn't mean it just might not be a good one and she may need another battery. Guess we will see. The landlord is going to check it for her.

Personalized Gifts for Sister

My sister's birthday is coming up soon and so is Christmas and I have been looking for unique gifts to give her. I know she would just love one of the many personalized gifts for sister that I found on the Internet. They have the cutest mugs and she is typically a cold person, always putting on extra clothes to keep warm. So I think a personalized sweatshirt would be just perfect for Christmas. But first I believe she would love one of the cute mugs for her birthday to drink her hot tea out of. There are so any things to choose from. I will just take my time and decide which will make her smile when she opens her gifts.

Pizza Buffet

Tuesday night I went out to the Pizza Ranch. They have a buffet now 7 days a week both at noon and at night. I had not been there for about 3 weeks so it was about time. I ran into some old friends I had not seen for a long time. They said they hadn't been there either for awhile so it was really neat running into them. I made a pig of myself and tried a piece of 5 different pizzas plus dessert pizza with vanilla pudding. It was all delicious.

Neighbors are Moving

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

Skid Steer

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

Trick or Treat

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

Funny t-shirts

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


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

Free Link Building Tools

When you have decided to setup your own website, there are so many questions you have about how to go about it. You need to get your website out where people will see it and that is where free link exchange comes in. Once you have created your website you need to build links in order to get the much needed traffic to your website. Not only that but perhaps you could use some help with the creation of your website. Or if it is already setup, you can find ways to improve. What better way than to get free help building tools? It is as easy as 1-2-3 to sign up and find out how to get free links to your website. It does not matter whether you are a beginner or an advanced webmaster, you are sure to find great inspiration here free to further promote your website.

Snow for Halloween?

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

Our Delayed Honeymoon

The Author of this post is Cheryl Martinez

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

Cooking for One

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

Alcohol Rehab Treatment Centers

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

Funeral Visitation

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

Youtube Downloader

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

Roadside Assistance Club

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

High School Graduate

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

Beautiful Fall Weather

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

Concierge Jobs

Perhaps you are looking for a new job. A job with some excitement and something different than you have been doing, perhaps for a few or many years. In checking the Internet I found there are quite a few Concierge Jobs available all over the country. Do you love senior people? Perhaps you would enjoy working with them, brightening up their life. Or is your love tennis or sports or just love to shop? There are so many varying types of concierge jobs available, you are sure to find one in a place you would love, doing what you love most. It is almost too easy to find just what you are looking for by checking out the Internet.

Rap Music

I don't know if you like rap music but I do. Our grandson composed the best song for his grandfather's funeral. Everyone just loves it. He has a real talent for this and I think he will go far one day in the music field. It comes so naturally for him so that makes it easy. It is clear and you can understand the words, which is more than you can say for a lot of rap music.

There is an old saying that a son is a son until he marries a wife, but a daughter is a daughter all of her life. I really believe that is very true. Now one of my daughter's is moving to our town this weekend. How great is that? It is so nice to have family close by now that I have lost my husband. He left a big hole in my life but the kids and grandkids and great grandkids are filling that hole. It is wonderful having a big family and having them all fairly close too.

No matter how many children you have they are all different. We have twins and they are alike in many ways but so different in other ways. We also have two sons that are as different as night and day. They have wonderful mates that we love dearly. My husband is very ill and will not recover so they are all coming to see him one last time. We'll all see him in Heaven one day.

Red Envelope

For every special occasion and often inbetween we look for something special like the red envelope. I love shopping the Internet because there is such a wonderful huge selection of unique gifts for everyone. You never have a problem deciding on a gift because you can always find something new and different. It solves the problem many of us have when we have someone that seems to have everything already. Then we ponder on what in the world are we going to get them. There isn't any problem such as that when you shop the Internet. I am always delighted at the wonderful gifts I find for friends and those I love.

Another Moving Day Coming Up

In about 3 weeks, our daughter and husband will be moving to our town. It will sure be nice to have family close by. We are at an age where we need more help. We can't mow the little lawn we have, anymore. There always seems to be some little chore that needs to be done and hard to fit into their schedule when living in another town. It will be neat to be able to go back and forth across town to visit and probably will eat out with them now and then too. It is all quite exciting.

Moving to Georgia

Posted by Gaylord Campbell

Moving to Georgia wasn’t really in the plans but when I got offered a job just outside of Athens it was really tough to turn down. It was the perfect position at a great freight company and I knew I could build the experience I needed to move forward in my career in a couple of years. I found a great little house out on a dirt road (no, seriously) and looked into internet with and a security alarm, too. I like being a bit off the grid to be honest with you guys and I know that it won’t be forever which is a really comforting thought. Athens is really cool, though, all on its own so I don’t really mind where I’m living now! I thought it would be a lot more country and a lot less cute college town, to be honest, so it’s been a much better experience than I ever would have imagined. I like my new home and I may even stay here even when I’m done with this job!

Fat Burners

Oh my, summer has been good to me. Picnics, family reunions, holidays and the wonderful food have put the pounds on me. What I really need is to find out which are the best fat burners and get some. I was really disappointed to learn that 95 percent of fat burners actually do not work at all. So I decided I would research on the Internet this time and first check out customer reviews of some of them. I also would like a guarantee that I will get my money back if it doesn't work. I am tired of paying out good money for bad results. I find it is to my advantage to check in with those who have done all the investigating for me and can tell which are the best and save me money at the same time.

The Farm

One of our grandsons and his wife and two boys now live on a beautiful acreage. They have apple and cherry trees and have added chickens and a rabbit to their livestock. The chickens are really laying eggs now so they are searching for more recipes that use fresh eggs. They found out one was slipping out and laying eggs in the bunny nest. I thought that was hilarious. Their youngest is only 1+ years and he was short enough to spot a nest of eggs. Good for him :0)

POS Hardware

Whether you have been in business a long time, or just starting out, you want the best POS Hardware you can buy and at the best cost to you. You can put your trust in a company that has dealt in POS hardware since l999. It does not matter what you need, they have it. Perhaps you are new in the business world and need the whole POS setup including both hardware and software. You can find it by checking out the Internet. Even if you only need a barcode scanner, they are ready with whatever you need. It is always good to deal with a company that others have put their trust in for so many years.

Have you ever been nauseated and could not eat? The sight and smell of food made you physically ill? My husband has felt that way now for about 3 weeks. The hospital could not find anything that would help or a cause for the nausea. However, another Dr. suggested a patch that can be put on your shoulder that will take care of that. I am on my way now to the pharmacy to pick that up and I sure hope it works.

Rising Gas Prices

Wow! The price of gas started dropping. It was good to see. I was doing a lot of driving to the hospital in a nearby town. The gas tank was going down fast. Then the price of gas also started dropping. Last night I happily filled up the tank at quite a lower price. Tonight as I drove by that place gas had gone up 4 cents a gallon. Sure glad I filled up last night.

Blood in Urine

I knew there had to be something seriously wrong when my husband started passing blood clots in his urine. I have known people who had kidney cancer and this was the first sign. There can also be cancer of the bladder, as well. However, kidney stones may be the culprit as he had lower abdominal pain until he passed 2 clots this morning. If this continues we will go to ER. You can't get a doctor on Sunday any other way. Now the bleeding has stopped so we will wait a little while and see what happens.

Old Family Pictures

Time to sort through some old family pictures. There are quite a few prints of the same picture so sharing those with other members of the family. The cameras were certainly different in those days. They did not take the nice clear pictures we have today with digital cameras. It is neat with digital to take the pictures and then put them in your computer and send them on to others. Everything is changing so fast you can hardly keep up with it.

My husband had to see a neurologist this week because of severe nerve pain in his neck and down his back. He is now taking some pills and wearing a soft collar. He had to have an x-ray of his neck and an MRI. We'll find out Wednesday what will happen next. I think it will probably be surgery because it appears a vertebrae may be pinching a nerve in his spinal column. Not looking forward to that and he sure isn't either.

Hot Weather

We had about 2 days of decent summer weather. The wind finally came in from the NW and brought some drier air with it. It was quite pleasant yesterday. It was also nice this morning. However, now we have had to turn the air conditioning on again. I had the windows open for about 4 hours so got some fresh air into the house. Then the humidity started up again. It has been a really hot summer. I hope that doesn't mean a very cold snowy winter.

Actos Lawsuit

Are you diabetic? Do you depend on oral diabetes medicine such as Actos? Are you aware of the very serious side effects they have found in people taking this drug? I bet you did not know that there is an Actos lawsuit going on. Many people have suffered some of these serious side effects and have enlisted the aid of an excellent firm of experienced attorneys to go to bat for them. I just heard on the news that there is an alarming rise in bladder cancer and this is one of the serious side effects some people may have from this drug. Also heart attacks or heart failure have been found to have been caused by this drug, as well. It pays to check it out with an attorney and see if you have a case if you have suffered one or more of these serious side effects.

Sweet Corn

We had the best sweet corn yet for supper tonight. Our son called and said as he traveled from Springfield, Mo. to Iowa, he saw corn fields so dried up from lack of rain that they looked like they do in the fall when they are ready to pick. That is a real shame. Much corn is going into Ethanol and into gas tanks and I hope they never find that they are short of food all over using it this way. I think it is foolish. Drill baby, drill. We have enough oil in the USA if the NUTS would shutup that we could be selling our oil to other companies instead of letting them hold us up for oil. What happened to common sense. It seems to have flown the coop.


I love the television programs CSI Miami, CSI, CSI New York. I have started watching many of the Law and Order programs too because now the re-runs have started. NCIS is a big favorite of mine along with NCIS Los Angeles. And you can't leave out Rookie Blue either. As you can see I love crime shows. On Saturday night, we like to watch COPS and we are very disappointed that they took off America's Most Wanted. I don't know whose idea that was, but it was a bad idea. They caught a lot of criminals that were on the Most Wanted lists including No. 1 criminal just a couple weeks ago.

Avastin Lawsuit

Are you suffering from breast cancer? Have your doctor put you on Avastin and are you aware that there is an Avastin lawsuit? Although it seemed like a wonder drug, it was found that is has some terrible side effects. Even though it stopped the growth of new blood vessels, it was found to be quite unsafe. Instead of a cure, it may prolong life but then they decided it didn't even do that. People were suffering from high blood pressure, even heart attacks and heart failure. Therefore, it really wasn't doing much to prolong life, rather you could be in danger by taking this drug. In checking the Internet I found there are experienced attorneys who will give you a free consultation to see if you have a case against Avastin.

Cash Advance

Have you found yourself running short of money before the next payday? However, you have urgent bills that you just have to pay and pay them now? Perhaps you just have no idea of where to turn or what to do. But have you ever heard of getting a cash advance? I was checking out the Internet to see how I could get some fast cash. I found if I had a steady job, a checking account and either a Federal or a State ID, I would qualify for a quick cash advance. I could either go online and fill out a short application and if you are approved the money you need will be auto deposited in your checking acount within 24 hours. Or I could go to their nearest store, make out my personal check for the amount I need plus their fee and walk out with the cash. What a weight lifted off my shoulders.

Family Dog

Our family dog was a little Boston Terrier named Holly. We got her when she was a tiny pup. She was different in that she had an all white face and one blue and one brown eye. She trained very quickly and learned all kinds of little tricks. She would dance on her hind feet for a treat and several other tricks. She loved company and wanted to play with everyone. But then she got liver problems and she got listless and slept alot and finally got so she didn't want to eat her regular food anymore. We took her to the Vet yesterday and had her put to sleep out of kindness and love for her. We miss her.

Disability Insurance

When you are hurt and cannot work anymore, it is a good thing that there is disability insurance. However, sometimes it takes a great deal of both time and paperwork in order to get your claim through. In the meantime, you are hurting for money for the every day things needed to live, plus paying your mortgage if you have one and car payment for example too. I know my brother-in-law was in a terrible semi accident and hasn't been able to work again. Not only that but he has to have a number of body parts replaces such as hips and knees. He had a terrible time getting his Social Security Disability through and they went through some hard times. If only he had know there were companies who specialize in helping people with their Social Security disability so they can get it faster. It sure would have been a great help to them.

Family Pictures

Everyone has a camera today and they are so much different than the old film cameras. The new digital cameras can take so many nice clear pictures. Here is one of the pictures taken of us and our daughter. We had just eaten out at this little restaurant and this was a cute setting for the picture.
Don't you think it turned out really nice and clear. It was a beautiful evening to take pictures too.

Buy iPod Touch

It seems like everyone has an iPod now and I would like to buy ipod touch but I wasn't sure where to shop for one. As usual, I got on the Internet to see where I could purchase one and what I found was a huge selection of them at oustanding prices. I could get free shipping right to my home too. Now all I had to do was find out which has the best customer reviews and then decide which one I wished to purchase for myself. I love shopping and it was so much fun shopping where there was a good selection and good prices, as well. I found out I could have it shipped to me quite fast and I was delighted.

Tuesday, July 5, 2011


Lunch time is always a fun time for these little kids. They have a wonderful porch to sit out in and enjoy their lunch. Their Mom always prepares a very nutritious meal for them. You can see they are really enjoying it. They have a neat picnic table to eat on too. I am sure eating out on the porch makes cleanup easier for Mom too.

Heat Wave

We're having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave. Sounds like a song we used to hear years ago. But the heat wave is definitely here. It is 92 degrees and the heat index is over 100. I do not like hot days like this. My best weather is 70 with a cool breeze. The humidity is terrible right now and sounds like tomorrow will be the same. We have a family reunion on Saturday and it is to be a bit cooler. I hope they are right.

Converter Digital

Today there are many needs for a converter digital. There are also many kinds of digital converters. For example, you may need one for your television set to convert over to HD. You may need one to convert the signal you are receiving, as well as, perhaps one for analog. We have several digital converters in our home. In the living room we have one for the HD television as we enjoy that so much. In the bedroom we have analog and it saves us money. They can also help with recording programs. And you can shop the Internet and save a lot of money.

Eureka a Science Fiction Show for Generation Next

Guest post by Toney Elliott

Eureka is my favorite science fiction show on Although Eureka will probably never be remembered as a cult classic of the genre as a television show. It should be remembered as one of the most offbeat attempts to blend the general American mythology of high brow science fiction, with the normal everyday world. It is the line in the sand where Mayberry and the local town Sheriff meet the X-files.

There is a genuine sense of humor and something many newer science fiction shows lack today - the genre is based in teaching the mythology of the technological age in a semi-prohetic point of view. True science fiction has always been just a few decades or a millennium ahead, but not so far off that we cannot see the changes coming. Science fiction is the prophecy text of the common man. Eureka truely speaks to this pure formula in the science fiction genre.

Coming from the quirky think tank community of scientist and other resident locals, Eureka is seen through the daily law enforcement duties and experiences of the newly appointed Sheriff Jack Carter and teenage daughter Zoe. Eureka is Northern Exposure for the Wii generation. It is a bit hard to classify and worth a second glance before dismissing it as comedic farce. Eureka is much more science than fiction at heart.

Catch It if You Can

Here you see two of our great grandchildren at play outdoors on a beautiful summer day. They are trying to catch the bubbles and having a great time doing it. It is a simple thing to do and keeps them busy for a long time chasing after the bubbles. It is an inexpensive entertainment for them as well. They are also getting lots of exercise, fresh air and sunshine.

Father's Day

Yesterday was Father's Day. We had a good day at church. Someone got married on Saturday and served the whole church several kinds of cheesecake and salty snack mix. Three of the 4 kids called and wished my husband Happy Fathers Day. He got a card each day for 4 days up and on Father's day. I made him one of his favorite suppers and he also got a couple of text messages wishing him Happy Father's Day. It was a good day.

Desktop Computers

Everyone uses desktop computers these days and they want to get a good one. So shop the Internet and find the store with the best deals on desktop computers. Find a store with a great big selection of all types, sizes of monitors and best of all the best prices. It is wonderful to find the computer you want and then find out you can save many dollars buying it at the right place. I always shop the Internet for the best buys. It is amazing the deals you find.

Surf Clothing

If you love to surf, then you love surf clothing. In shopping the Internet, I found a great selection of both men's and women's surf clothing. With decals of all kinds, you are in real style with Saltlife. You can get all the neat accessories to go with your t shirts and you can get both long and short sleeve t shirts. Everyone wants to look sharp out on the beach, hitting the waves. You can even get the best prices with a 20% discount on an order of $50 or more. Everyone loves a bargain. It is so much fun shopping.

Celebration of Anniversary

We will be going out to supper with our daughter and her husband to celebrate their anniversary. It doesn't seem possible that they have 3 children and 4 grandchildren already and another on the way. We are going to a place that serves some of the best BBQ ribs around. It is just a little place in a very small town but usually those are some of the best home cooked food you can get. We are looking forward to it.

Summer Fun Outdoors

What a good time these two little ones are having playing in their new sandbox. It is just right for the two of them. They love to spend time outdoors playing in the sand. It is good to get outside in the warm weather and get plenty of fresh air. Some kids spend way too much time indoors in front of a television or something like that. I am glad to see these two little ones having a good time outdoors.

TexMex for Supper Tonight

We went out for supper tonight. It was sprinkling a bit and we weren't sure if it was going to rain or not. However, it had already poured where we were going and had stopped. But you could see puddles alongside the road and the road was really wet so you knew the rain has passed by. We had a great Mexican supper and were back home before any rain. It looks quite dark in the west though and I heard the television say there is a severe thunderstorm warning west of us so we might get rain yet.

Bash on the Farm

This is a big weekend. It is Bash on the Farm weekend. Three miles out south of our town on a farm, these folks have some 40 bands coming for Friday afternoon and night and all day Saturday and Saturday night. There is music to suit everyone. There is plenty of food, games for the kids too. Expecting over 3000 or more this year. This is the 10th year for the Bash. Don't miss it.

Topamax Lawsuit

A great many people took Topamax for migraine headaches and also for seizures connected to epilepsy. They did not find out for awhile that it also had other side effects that were not advertised. Unfortunately there were birth defects in babies whose mothers took Topamax. Some were born with cleft lips or cleft plates. The drug was promoted for unapproved purposes and were not approved by the FDA. Therefore, Topamax paid huge fines due to this. However, many mothers of children with birth defects were not aware of this and now there is a Topamax lawsuit or liability claim that can be made. In order to find out if you have a case, it would be wise to visit with O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers – 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701 – 512-494-9949 as they are very experienced attorneys and are there to help you.

Learning to Spell

Children have so much more at their disposal to play with and learn at the same time. Here our little great granddaughter, who is three years old, is already learning to spell some words. She has spelled out MOM and DAD. I think by the time she starts school she will know a lot more than I did when I started school. Her Mom is a good teacher too.

Best Anti Aging Product

I got up the other morning and looked in the mirror. Guess who was looking back at me? It was my mother, wrinkles and all. I knew right then and there that I needed to find the best anti aging product available today. I got on the Internet right away and found a company who had done all the legwork for me. I wouldn't have to run to the store and go thru all the products on the shelf. I could find out the top 5 products right online. Not only that but they have been checked for safety, effectiveness and I could get the best price also. I can hardly wait to try out my new anti aging products and get rid of these wrinkles and look younger and save money at the same time.

The Black Hills of South Dakota

Our grandsons went to the Black Hills about 2 weeks ago. This is just one of the gorgeous pictures they took. I can see why they love to go there. It is very beautiful country.
I remember when we went to Mt. Rushmore. I just stared and stared because I could not believe I was seeing something out of the History books. It was really neat.

90 Degrees

It went from cold to hot in 24 hours. We had a little thunder this morning and just a bit of rain and then the thermometer started climbing. It is now 90 and very humid. The air conditioning is running all the time just to keep it down to 74. Our neighbors had problems with their brand new air conditioner and I really feel sorry for them. They had to wait 2 weeks for a part. I bet they are glad they got it running this morning.

Topamax Birth Defects Lawyer

If you took Topamax while you were pregnant, you may have already found out that it can cause harmful defects. Often people have taken it for migraine headaches or epilepsy and then when their baby was born, the child was born with a cleft lip or cleft palate. If this has happened to you, you may want to contact a Topamax Birth Defects Lawyer to see if you have a case due to this drug. They have a simple form to fill out and you can find much information on the Internet about Topamax. The FDA has announced a stronger warning in regard to this drug since scientific data has shown it to lead to such defects in newborns. A cleft palate can cause the child all kinds of problems and must be surgically repaired.

Holiday Weekend

We had a wonderful time out at our grandson's acreage. They invited us for BBQ and there was plenty of great food to eat. The little great grandkids have all kinds of room to run and play on their acreage and they were having so much fun together playing on the big swing set. They also played in the new water shower as it was nice and warm yesterday and with a warm wind. They made homemade ice cream later in the afternoon with great rhubarb crisp and chocolate brownies. Everything was soooo good. We passed an exotic animal farm on our way there and home again and saw 3 of the 2 hump backed camels. Seems so funny to see camels in Iowa.
Zoe went along too and had a good time with everyone.

It is so much fun to see kids at play. These two little brothers have a great time together. They play well inside and outside the house. It makes it much easier for Mom to get work done when the kids are busy at play. You know they are safe and having a good time.

Austin Personal Injury Attorney

Topamax has been a very beneficial medication for people suffering from terrible migraines. I believe my daughter has taken Topamax in the past. Now, however, some bad side effects are coming to light such as eye problems. A few people have even had suicidal thoughts after taking this medication. Others have given birth to babies with cleft palates and cleft lip, believed to have been caused by the mother taking Topamax while carrying her child. If you are one of these people who believe they have suffered personal injury from this drug, it is suggested you contact an Austin personal injury attorney to find out if you have a liability case. A fine law firm with a well trained staff is located at O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers – 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701 – 512-494-9949 and they will give you a free consultation. You can give them a call also or fill out the form on their website and they will determine if you have a case.

Best Creatine Supplement

When building up your muscles, you probably have looked into creatine supplements. There are a number of them on the market and some of them may cause problems such as bloating. It is always best to check with someone who has looked into which is the best creatine supplement on the market. You want one that will replenish key electrolytes without causing common bloating and other unpleasant side effects. In searching the Internet it is easy to find companies who have done the research for you and can recommend the top creatine supplements.

Gernerac Generators

We live in a mobile home court and when the lights go out, especially in winter, you always worry about your pipes freezing up. Our neighbors have a home generator so all they have to do is flip a switch and they have electricity again. We are seriously considering getting such a generator and I was looking into the Internet and found generac generators. They seem to be just what we would need. The prices are good and there is free shipping over $199 and no tax outside of Illinois. That ads to our interest in getting one as it helps with the budget also.

Future Computer Operator

It looks to me like we may have another computer operator in the family. He is hard at work on his little computer. They start them young now. I heard our school is sending home laptops with all the kids now in certain grades. They know so much more about technology than we do. It is fun to watch them at play. They can get so serious about what they are doing :0) It looks like he will be repairing them before you know it.

Visa Reward Card

We all use credit cards at one time or another. But do you get any rewards with the present credit cards you have? I would rather have a Visa reward card and get rewards for charging the items I charge regularly. Not only that but there are many extra benefits with this particular card. Included is no annual fee and fraud protection. These are quite important to me. You get reward points that add up quickly and you can use in so many ways. It is quite surprising at how valuable this card can be to you.

Ready for Church

Don't they look sharp? They are all dressed up and ready for church. They go to church every Sunday and really enjoy it. They are growing up so fast. It seems like yesterday that they were born and now they are walking and talking.

Easter Fun

Kids really have a good time with their Easter baskets at Easter time. It is so much fun seeing what they got. It is almost a miniature Christmas.
You can really tell they are having a good time discovering all the things in their baskets. They are all dressed up for church too. It is so much fun being a kid.

Veggie Tales

Veggie Tales are really popular with both the young and old. Here two little brothers are highly entertained watching them.

It is good for them, rather than some of the horrible cartoons they have on television these days. I wish they would have had Veggie Tales when our kids were little. But then, they had the Roadrunner and Popeye and a lot of other cute cartoons at that time.

Our Dog Holly

We just love our little dog Holly. She is a Boston Terrier and is over 12 years old now. We hate to see her aging and feel she will be our last dog. It is hard to get a dog sitter if you want to go away for longer than a few hours. However, we have a great neighbor that is willing to come over whenever we call her. Here she is enjoying some new dog food we got for her.
Holly enjoying her Nutrish

She really likes it and can't wait till we feed her.

Bake me a Cake

Here is the future baker of America. He has his baker's hat on and is ready to go. I hope he can make me a delicious chocolate cake. I have been hungry for one. He is ready and willing with his little kitchen to make all kinds of goodies to eat. He's having a lot of fun.

Leave Your Home Secure

Coffee in the morning.

Thanks for the guest post by Kristofer Bartlett

Nothing to me is better than going to the bookstore and having a great cup of coffee. I simply set the home alarm system (adt san francisco) at home and head out for the entire day, coming back later at night when I'm about to go to bed. Many people do not realize that when you read, study, or even play games or work online that coffee can help you a great deal. It speeds up your mind to incredible speeds and helps you to focus and think faster. I love cinnamon swirl coffee the best because it smells lovely, is not too sweet, and fills me with warmth on a cold day. I also love mocha coffee in either caramel or raspberry due to the ! massive amount of sweetness in it.

It gets very cold in Alaska and sometimes it is better to go out into the bookstores instead of being miserable at home. Even if I get sick I know that I can simply walk or take a bus, or even a cab, to the bookshop and stay up there as long as I want, even until they close. Most of the time I read and play games, but at other times I will study for exams and chat with my friends who work there. This is one of my favorite pastimes and I am frequently seen at many shops.

Jesus is Lord - Celebrate Easter

He was the Greatest man in history, named Jesus, had no servants, yet they called him Master. Had no degree, yet they called him Teacher. Had no medicines, yet they called him Healer. He had no Army, yet Kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet he conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him. He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today. He is risen and sitting at the right hand of God interceding for those who have repented and accepted him into their hearts. He fills the void in your heart that you tried to fill with all the world has to offer and you were still discontented. Everything we buy to make us happy fades after awhile and we start looking for something else. With Jesus in your heart, you aren't looking for more to fill that void, you have peace and contentment and a joy unspeakable and full of Glory.

Topamax Lawsuit

Have you heard about the Topamax lawsuit? It would appear that mothers using Topamax while pregnant may have delivered babies with cleft palate or cleft lip. In many cases studied, this seems to be a bad side effect of this drug. If you have suffered the shock of delivering your beautiful baby with such a congenital deformity, it may be to your advantage to contact O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers – 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701 – 512-494-9949. They are expert attorneys that may decide that your baby's deformity could have been caused from this drug and not from anything you may have done while pregnant. You will find them understanding and will give you a free consultation. They may also be able to obtain some compensation for you after investigating your case.

Frozen Bread and Rolls

Have you ever let frozen bread thaw and rise? It tastes just like homemade bread when it is baked. However, you do not have to do all the hard work of making the bread. Frozen cinnamon rolls are great too. I knew a lady who was known for her wonderful cinnamon rolls. I found out when she died that she always used frozen ones from the store. What a shock that was. I thought "I can do that". The next time I need some cinnamon rolls for something special, I will buy the frozen ones in the store :0)

Quick Easy Supper

Making a roast for supper is one of the easiest meals I can make. I brown a nice roast and put it in the crockpot. Set it on low and a few hours later, add onion, carrots and potatoes. The house always smells as wonderful as the food tastes. You can't beat the gravy you make from it. It is easy cleanup too after supper because you don't have lots of pots and pans to clean. I am planning to make one for Sunday night. Thinking about it makes me hungry :0)

Cosmetology School

Are you thinking about a career or perhaps a new career? Then perhaps you should consider cosmetology school. Regency was founded over 50 years ago and they are growing and expanding all the time. You can find their campuses in 19 states and they are really upscale schools. You are able to interact with the public while learning cosmetology which is invaluable training. They also have placement relationships so that you may choose to work on a cruise ship, for example. Or perhaps you would choose a salon or working with models on a runway. It sounds very exciting to me. My niece is a cosmetologist and she just loves it. If you are leaning toward cosmetology, there is no time like the present to look into these fine schools.

Tired Little Boy

This little guy started walking just awhile ago. He was one year old a few months ago. He has learned he can climb up on almost anything. That is enough to keep a Mom busy as though she didn't have enough to do already. He and his 3 year old brother play together so well. You can see he has been having a good time and is ready for his nap.

Supper Out

Just got back from the Pizza Ranch and boy was it good!!! I had two of the newer pizzas and salad bar. We had peach Cactus Bread for dessert. My husband always has broasted chicken legs, mashed potatoes and gravy. Tonight they had green beans for a change and they always have macaroni and cheese for the kids too. You always have plenty of tasty food to choose from there. It is close to home too.

Topamax Lawsuit

What could be more heartbreaking than delivering your newborn baby and finding out that he or she has a cleft palate or cleft lip? It is even worse to think that perhaps a medication you took may possibly have caused this congenital deformity. It means surgery for your child and added expense that is often very hard on you. By contacting O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers – 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701 – 512-494-9949 they will be happy to give you a free consultation in regard to a Topamax lawsuit. They may be able to assist you in obtaining some compensation, as well. They understand that it may not be your fault, but the fault of the Topamax you took before the birth of your child. It appears they have found serious side effects of this drug, although it has been helpful for several things such as seizures or migraines. It is a good idea to look into it.

Best Friends

These two little brothers are the best of friends. I hope they will always continue to be close as they grow up. They have such good times together. They are 2 years apart and that is just about right. The youngest is walking now and having a great time with his big brother. It is so much fun watching them growing up.

Cold Weather

It is no time to remove the sheet blankets from the bed yet. One night it is so warm, you have windows open and almost sleep on top of the covers. Then just like that, the temperatures drop and you pull the blankets up around your neck to stay warm. The furnace did get a rest for a few days but it was short lived. It is good weather to have something baking in the oven. It helps heat the whole house and smells good too.

Colonetix Reviews

There are so many things that we do to keep our bodies in the best healthy physical condition possible. We watch what we eat, we exercise, we often take vitamins and various supplements to keep ourselves healthy. However, have you ever thought about colon cleansing. By using a good colon cleanser and reading up on colonetix reviews you may be pleasantly surprised to learn what a good idea it is to cleanse your colon. It is amazing how much of a difference it may make in your body. Our colons collect all sorts of things and not all of it is expelled as it should be. That is why it is important to cleanse your colon with a good cleanser. We did this a couple of years ago and feel we should do it again as it was surprising how it improved your colon health. By reading others opinions, it certainly helps to learn more about it.

Anniversary Supper

We had our belated anniversary supper tonight. Good friends took us to a new Mexican restaurant about 20 miles from home. We had some really good food and fellowship. Tried a new stir fry type platter that was excellent and have enough for lunch tomorrow. Weather was perfect, 70 degrees and lots of sunshine. We love Mexican food and will be going again one of these days to another favorite Mexican restaurant we especially love above all the rest.

Humidifiers are wonderful. We would not be without a humidifier as the moist air holds the heat better and makes the house so much warmer in winter. There are many other good reasons to have humidifiers. There are many styles of humifiers, both warm and cool mist. They help with dry skin, asthma and even sinus headaches. I prefer the one with digital controls so that we can monitor the humidity in our home and keep it at a uniform level. It is also great to have one that is easy to clean and keep clean. In looking for a new humidifier, I checked out the Internet and found a number of them could be sent to us by free shipping.

Small Business Phone System

I know if you are a small business, a phone system is one of your biggest expenses. However, now there is a solution to save you all that stress of installation of a phone system and save you money, as well. In checking the Internet, I ran across the small business phone system which would indeed be the answer for any small business. The costs are exceptionally low and there are no contracts. Not only that but it is easy to use and you can invest more in your business with the savings. There is even a contest to Win A Free Phonebooth for a year if you purchase a phonebooth before April 30, 2011 and you will be automatically entered.

Doing Dishes

Mom and Dad can always use an extra helping hand around the house. You just can't start too young to teach them the various chores around the house. Here you see our grandson teaching his son how to do dishes. He can be a big help to his Mom as he grows up. And I have a feeling his little brother will get a chance to learn how to do dishes too. It looks like he is doing a fine job of it.

You may even decide to purchase several of these wonderful gifts for yourself. Don't forget to check out the personalized Easter gifts and the Easter candies, as well.

Cupcake Gift Basket

Mother's Day is getting close. Why not surprise your mother with a delicious cupcake gift basket? There are a number of delicious cupcakes to choose from. The red velvet cupcakes are so beautiful. However, there are a number of choices and sizes to choose from containing chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, as well. I think the sampler of all the cupcakes, red, chocolate and vanilla would be just superior. You can also indulge yourself with these delectable cupcakes, shipped right to your door.

Mrs. Fields Cookies

I feel like most everyone has heard of mrs fields cookies and how delicious they are. There are so many varieties that are so good and did you know that you can have them delivered right to your door. If you check out the Internet, you will find many kinds and many ways they can be given as gifts, sent right to your friends and/or family. And of course, you will want to order plenty for yourself. No one can resist these wonderful tasty cookies, at least I can't.

Little Farmer

This little guy and his brother live on an acreage now. He is practicing for when he grows up and is able to mow the lawn with his Mom and Dad. He just loves the farm and now that it is nice weather, he and his brother can get outside and enjoy all the room they have to play in. A farm is a great place to raise kids.

Contemporary Furniture

Spring is here and are you looking around your home and thinking you need a big change inside as well as the world changing outside? How old is your furniture? If it is like mine, it has been around for quite awhile. I think it is time to start looking for some good looking contemporary furniture to brighten up my home and my moral as well. It has been a long hard winter and looking at all the gorgeous new furniture available has really gotten me excited. I found there is an online catalog and they also have in-home consultation to help me with my decisions. There are so many new and exciting colors for Spring.

Czech Glass Beads

Much beautiful jewelry is made out of czech glass beads. They come in so many fabulous colors and shapes. Perhaps you are a crafty person and love to make your own necklaces and earrings out of beads. There is no limit to what you can do with these beautiful beads and I am sure you are the envy of many of your friends. Or, if you are thinking of making beading a hobby, then you would love these beads and not only that but the tools and much more to begin beading projects.

School Backpack

All students carry backpacks these days. Additionally, many adults hiking, in sports, and many other occasions, want a good backpack. As a student, their school backpack is a very important part of their lives. They carry everything from books to extra clothes to food in them. Everyone wants a good functional backpack and a good looking one, as well. In checking the Internet, I found a great selection of many designs and also many good prices for the backpacks. You can choose from a large number of different colors and designs as well.

Gas Prices Rising

The gas prices are sure going up. No matter how you try, it is really hard to keep your gas usage down. I need to run and get the mail so will probably go to the station and see if it went up again today. It was 16 cents less in the larger town about 20 miles from us. I do not know why there has to be such a difference in the gas prices. If all the environmental nuts would let the USA drill, we could be having cheap gas and selling oil to other countries and our country wouldn't be in such debt.

Hair Loss Products

My husband has been losing his hair over the years, much to his dismay. We have seen a number of hair loss products advertised but how do you know if they will work or not. It costs a lot of money to try a product, only to find out that it does not live up to its claims. It is really heartbreaking when you get your hopes up and think that something is really going to stop your hair loss. We found it was best to check out the Internet and find someone who had checked out the many products to find out if they really work. Then they recommend the top ones that they have studied over the years to find out which are really best. That is certainly a great help when you are shopping for a hair loss product.

Creatine Supplements

We all want to work out and build up our muscles so the gals will take a second look when they see us Therefore, we lift weights and often take creatine supplements to help us with endurance and energy in our muscles. But do they all work? It is best to check out companies who have evaluated these supplements to see if they are even really safe to use. Are there any side effects? What are the long term results? Do they really contain the best quality ingredients to do the job. Reading Customer reviews is always a great way to find out how others feel about a product before you use it yourself.

Oxelite Pro Side Effects

We are bombarded almost daily with new weight loss drugs. They all make these wonderful claims that make you want to run out and buy them quick and get started burning fat. However, oxyelite pro side effects make you sit up and take notice. I am so glad there are companies who thoroughly research these new products for ingredients and safety because this one sees to have to real value as far as losing weight. It does contain caffeine which should kick up your metabolism and get that fat burning, however, it doesn't contain enough to even do that. Besides that, there are no other ingredients that will really help you lose weight. Check out the Customer reviews before you buy this diet drug.

Let's Go Fishing

It is never too young to teach your children the joys of fishing. Here a Mom is having a good time with her little boy playing in a play boat, pretending to fish. Fishing has always been a fond habit of my husband and he has taken several of the grandsons fishing when they were younger. They always had a good time. It is always exciting when you catch that first fish. Then I think you are hooked for life on fishing :0)


When you are suffering from acne, you wish to do everything you possibly can to improve the health of your skin. That means using a product that will eliminate bacteria and use natural ingredients to improve the condition of your skin. A product such as therapores may be just what you need to accomplish this. It is always good to read reviews to see what others think of the various products available on the market today and you can also read the reviews on this product too. we have learned so much about using natural ingredients vs all the chemicals to help make our skin smooth and beautiful. It is good to investigate the pros and cons of therapores and see if it is the product for you.

It is definitely that time of the year to start thinking of losing that excess winter fat you put on over the Holidays. There was a lot of good meals and being inside, people tend to cook more good comfort food and the pounds just seem to add up. Of course, the next step is to get a good diet drug and I have heard so much about Hydroxycut that I thought I should check out and see if what they claim is all true. I didn't realize they make several products and some may not be suited to you in particular. It is always a good idea to do your investigating before you just go out and buy the first thing off the shelf.

Cell Booster Home

Sometimes you cannot always get the best reception on your cell phone. But I found that if I had a cell booster home unit, I could boost the cellular signal of my cell phone and it works much better. In searching the Internet, I found that you can buy them at quite a reasonable price and they are well worth it. I could also save a great deal of money which really helps me out on my budget. I always love saving money and shopping the Internet is a great way to do it.

Black Ink Cartridges

My printer is important to me. I like to print off a great many articles and also emails. Because I do a lot of printing I use mostly black ink cartridges. I always search the Internet to find the best prices to help with my budget. While I am looking for the best ink cartridges, I also read any customer reviews that are available. That way I know I am getting the best for the money. There is a considerable difference in price of cartridges so I do quite a lot of shopping around on the Internet to find the best cartridges and the best buys on them.

Eating Lunch

Here is one of our little great grandsons enjoying his lunch. They don't care how much they get on their face just so some of it makes it into their mouth :0) He is a real good eater with a good appetite, as you can see. He is growing up so fast now. He walks all over and has had a chance to walk in the grass for the first time now that the weather has gotten warmer. He's so much fun.

E Cig

There has been much debate over people smoking in various places. Non smokers are up in arms all the time it seems to take away more and more choices for a smoker to smoke. Now you can smoke ane cig. Yes, electronic cigarettes are becoming very popular. You can smoke with the taste of your cigarette but you will not be causing any offensive smoke for others around you. Unbelievable you say? No, with these cigarettes, you can return to smoking in some places that have banned smoking. Isn't that great? They omit a vapor that is clean and harmless. No more cigarette butts to throw away and no messy ash either.

Grandma Reads a Book

Here is Grandma reading a good book to her two little grandsons. They are delighted to spend some time with their grandma and she is just as happy to be spending time with them. These are the moments they will remember as they grow up. The happy times they spent with their grandma will always be remembered as they get older. This is time well spent for any grandma for she is making memories with the boys.

Disability Appeal

Ae you disabled and frustrated by the paperwork trying to make out your disability appeal? Is it taking you a long time to get your paperwork through and in the meantime you are suffering financially? You need a company with 25 years of experience working for you. You will find that your applications will go through much more quickly with their assistance. They have excellent results and that is what you need. If you do not receive your Social Security disability insurance benefits, then there will be no fee charged by them. But more likely, it will go through and much more quickly and you will be able to relax and stop the stress of trying so hard to get your approval through the system.

Tech Jobs

Many people are seeking new careers these days. Perhaps you are tired of your same old same old job. Going to work has become a drudgery instead of a delight.

You are also able to do a search for a particular tech job. You can gather all the information you need right in the privacy of your own home.

Need an Account Processing Service?

Everyone uses a credit card today. They used to ask you at the register if you were going to pay cash or credit. They do not do that anymore because very few people carry much cash around. I did not realize for a long time that every time the merchant swiped my card, he had to pay the processing company a fee. Some cards carry a higher processing fee than others also. And you are really in trouble if you have a business that might be considered high risk and no one wants to give you access to processing credit cards. You may be making plenty of money and be able to pay the fees but unable to get access to the credit card processor. If that is the case, you need to check out the Internet and find a company that will accommodate you. They can access your business and go through their database and find you a company that will provide you with a credit card processor. From there, it is up to you whether you wish to do business with them. It is really a must today to be able to accept your customer's credit cards if you wish to build your business or stay in business.

M&M Gifts for Kids

I have lots of little great grandchildren and so there are many birthday parties and special occasions to come up with a unique gift for them. Kids just love M&M's and when I checked out the Internet and found m&m gifts for kids I was very surprised and happy. Surprised because of all the unique gifts available with the M&M design. Rompers, t-shirts, mugs and plates and much more can be personalized with their name. That way they know it is truly their own. I know they would be very excited to receive such novel gifts for any occasion. Truly a way to put a big smile on their faces no matter if they are toddlers or school age kids.

Growing an Avacado

Have you ever tried growing avacado?
Well I never have either. But here you see our great grandson who is planning to watch this root and grow avacado. I do not know that much about them. His Mom knows lots of things and so this must be the way to start it. It will be interesting to see how and if it grows, don't you think?

Wonderful Mashed Potatoes

My sister-in-law told me about Idahoan buttery Golden Selects, flavored mashed potatoes. There is enough in a package for 4 servings or 2 if you are big eaters. They are so quick and absolutely delicious and so buttery. You don't want to spoil these mashed potatoes by putting gravy on them as they are so good just as they are. It is so handy to have them in the cupboard too when you are busy. It only takes 5 minutes to make them. I am going to make them tonight with BBQ baby back ribs. Yum! The ribs are making the whole house smell absolutely wonderful.


I love the aromatic smell of a good cigar. That is one of the reasons macanudo cigars are the most popular cigars in the USA. A real cigar lover, wants a cigar that is easy to draw. He wants one that is mild as well. And women can also enjoy a fine Macanudo cigar. They have a good selection of petites and miniatures that would please anyone. You can also choose to purchase one, five, or a box of the variety you choose. Be sure and check out their sales on cigars and you may find just what you want on sale. Check out the reviews by happy customers too.

Shoulder Brace

If you have ever had shoulder surgery or hurt your shoulder or know someone who has done this, then you know how important it is to have a good shoulder brace. It is good to find a company that gives you an unconditional money back guarantee on their braces. And they are well made and perfect for your type of injury. You are also able to shop by type of brace that you need. Free standard shipping on any order is a money saving for you also. If you have questions, you can call or email and an expert will consult with you, as well.

Thunder and Lightning

Here it is March and we had all kinds of thunder and lightning last night. When we got up it was still pouring rain and had about a minute of tiny little hail too. Someone from a town 20 miles from us said they had a bit of snow, hail and the rain too. We are finally getting rid of our snow except for the huge piles. I know they are all ice on the bottom so that will take some really warm days to melt down. We have been seeing Robins now and the tulips are coming up so Spring is finally here.

Check out the Hyundai Genesis

It is Spring and after a hard winter, we want to get out and go shopping. Specifically, we want to shop for a new car. There seem to be a number of them on the market now with 2011 cars. I checked the Internet and found a Florida Hyundai Dealer that has a nice inventory of both the new 2011 Hyundai and also some used Hyundais. I was excited. They have a good payment plan and I feel sure I could handle the payents. If I bought a used Hyundai Genesis Sedan, I would have no problems getting Hyundai Genesis parts for it, if needed, and at the best prices available. They stock everything for their vehicles and provide good service. I certainly am having a good time going through the inventory of used Hyundai Genesis Sedans, as well as checking out the new 2011 model.

Taking our little Boston Terrier, Holly to the Vet this morning. She has been drinking way too much water. She has also been losing weight. That isn't good. She plays just fine and eats good though. However, I just can hardly keep her water dish full. So we know we need to get some professional advice.

We don't want to lose her. She has been the best dog we have ever had.

I was shopping around the Internet and found that I could get free shipping and some beautiful free samples, as well. It is so much fun going through all the delightful designs and magnificent colors that it really makes me excited to choose several.

Heavy Wet Snow

We got another couple inches of heavy wet snow last night. We have a little windmill in the yard and it had so much snow on it that it couldn't turn. By noon though it had melted off and was really spinning northwest. My husband blew the snow off the driveway and it is all dry now. It is good to be closer to Spring as the snow doesn't last as long now. But it sure is a wet, slushy mess everywhere.

It seems like when one thing happens another will happen too. Our bathroom faucet is leaking some water and now the kitchen faucet is also leaking some water. It is a nuisance putting up with this and I have decided it is definitely time to get some new faucets. I have been checking out the Internet and found some great sales on name brands. Not only that but I can get free shipping on my order over $99. I am having a hard time deciding between all the great brands but I think we will replace the second bathroom faucet at the same time before it starts leaking. They say my satisfaction is guaranteed so I can't go wrong with a deal like that. Time to get shopping.

How Cold Is It?

It is very cold. Was zero again this morning. Then with the wind chill, it was way below zero. You can tell it in the garage that it is very cold. We let our little dog Holly out into the garage to do her business on newspaper. It doesn't take her long to run back into the house. My husband, who is retired, just doesn't want to go anywhere on days like this.
