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.

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.
