Great Granddaughter

This is one of my little great granddaughters. She rode along with me and her grandparents to Colorado for her Uncle's wedding. We were blessed with a day in which we spent in the Rocky Mountain National Park. It was just beautiful up there. Here you can see how little a 4 year old looks next to just one of the rocks up in the mountains. Although it was sunny, it was a little chilly but we all had a wonderful time.

Scion FR-S New Sports Car

What man or woman would not absolutely fall in love with the new Scion FR-S sports car from Toyota. They have combined the best of everything in order to turn out this dream car. Although it has a 4 cylinder engine it has 200 horsepower and is lightweight and affordable. It has just come out on the market and been introduced to the public in June 2012. It is available with both 6 speed automatic or 6 speed manual, pleasing all sports car lovers. And the colors - there is a large range of colors and of course, I am a little prejudiced toward red so I love the new Firestorm color. It grabbed me the minute I saw it. Sleek and shapely, this is the car that will catch your eye the minute you catch a glimpse of it. Toyota has taken all the best points of several of their cars and put them altogether in the Scion FR-S to turn out a sports car that will attract everyone. It comes equipped with 11 air bags so it has you covered from all directions for extra safety. Be sure and check out the specifications of this beautiful new sports car yourself.

Family Fun

It is so neat to see a whole family get together for some fun. Here you see some of this happy family gathered together for a good meal. They have gone to the Dells with all their children and grandchildren. Have you ever been to Wolf Lodge? It is a great family place with an indoor water park and everything else you would want. I would love to go if I was just 40 years younger :0)

Birthday Party

I was invited next door to their son's 16th birthday. I remember mine so well. I got my driver's license as soon as I turned 16 and have been driving ever since without receiving a ticket. He was quite excited to get cards with money for gas for the car he got when he turned 16. He gives his sisters a ride to school now and often back home too. I know they are happy not to have to ride the bus anymore. They are all growing up so fast. It was fun to go over and have good food and visit with old friends I hadn't seen in a while. I think that is the last birthday party now for this year.

Taco Tuesday

Another Taco Tuesday has rolled around. We have missed a couple of them. My brother spent a couple in the hospital or recuperating. So today we will be able to go and enjoy the great Mexican food of the Taco Johns in his hometown. I wish we had one here because everything they have is good. They have great breakfast dishes too but it is too far to run over there to get breakfast. I would rather go for lunch. They have a huge variety to choose from and often I take something home to have for supper or lunch tomorrow. Looking forward to it.

Stewart Esten Law Ofices

If you live in or near Barrie, Ontario and have been looking for a good law firm to do business with then you have found Stewart Esten Law Offices. This is a very experienced law firm with a very large range of law services. Are you considering a medical malpractice suit due to something that has happened to you that was not your fault but the doctor's fault? Perhaps you were in an accident and cannot seem to get any action or settlement in your case. You may have contacted another law firm that seems to be dragging their feet to help you and in the meantime you are suffering with your injury. That's what happened to my kids when they had a car accident. They were hit by a drunk driver and you would think they were at fault from the way the insurance companies treated them. They needed the best lawyer they could find. Someone from a firm such as Stewart Essen would have taken good care of them without all the hassel. Choose your law firm wisely.

The Weather is Changing - AGAIN!

They say in our State that if you do not like the weather, just wait a few hours or a day and it will change. It seems we have had a very extreme hot summer with a few cooler weeks in between. It has been quite warm and tonight we are going to break the record for a record low temperature. We go from closing the windows and turning on the air conditioning to opening the windows until it gets too chilly and close them again. I love a nice cool NW wind and by the looks of the western sky, we might even get something called rain. We hardly know what that is in this State and the crops are ruined this year. That is sad.

Houston Fence

Our daughter and her husband just bought a new house. It is still in the stages of completion and they have a lovely back yard. However, their yard and 3 neighbors are all connected. There is just no privacy there. In checking the Internet, they found a company that manufactures the finest of privacy fence houston. There are a number of various styles too and wood. They want a good looking fence that will last so they are looking for a company that does excellent work and does not cut corners. They have found there is a difference in some manufacturers if you check into it closely.

Mother's Little Helper

It is wash day today and Mother's Little Helper is checking it out. He is growing up so fast. Pulls himself up to everything now. He will be walking very soon. His Mom has her hands full taking care of three little ones. Their ages are 9 months, 2 years and 4 years. I remember when all 5 of ours were 5 and under. The last two were twins which made double the work but double the pleasure too. Now they are all married and a couple have grandchildren. How time flies.

Cicada Killer Wasps

I was reading in the paper this morning about Cicada Killer Wasps. They burrow into the ground. This hot dry weather we have been having has been perfect for them. They are called Killer Wasps but they actually never sting anyone. They have not found anyone who has been stung by one. They mind their own business and don't have hives so they have nothing to protect. Often a person gets bitten by a wasp because you have disturbed their nest. The ordinary wasp likes to build a hive along the soffit of your home. The usual wasp spray does not kill them either.

Rocky Mountains National Park

I just can't seem to quit writing about the beautiful mountains we saw on our trip in June. One of the stopping off points in the Rocky Mountain National Park was here where there was a bridge crossing the base of a waterfall. It was just beautiful, clear water pouring down from the side of the mountain. The elevation was quite high and left you breathless so it was a slow walk to this point. It was, however, worth the walk and a beautiful site to see. My daughter says she is ready to go back there for another vacation.

Small Business Accounting Tools

It does not matter what size business you have, there is always plenty of accounting and bookkeeping to do. When you have to do it manually, that is doing it the hard way. It takes a great deal of time to keep up with business bookkeeping. Small businesses have quite a time keeping up with all the paperwork and inventory. In addition to that, keeping track of their customers and their customer's accounts, those that owe money and those payments that come in from the customers can become an all consuming job. However, there is help. By obtaining the best software for your accounting and bookkeeping essentials, you can cut way down on the hours you spend reconciling accounts. I remember when I was keeping the inventory manually, it was quite a job to stay on top of it and order the right amount of items at the right time so we never ran out. In addition, there was the keeping of records to be sure everything got paid on time. The first time I got acquainted with accounting software, I just loved it. It was so much easier and less time consuming. It left me more time to assist customers with their purchases and no staying late to finish the books. By checking the Internet you can find that it only takes a simple form to fill out and you are on your way to getting the right software for your small business. It is quite easy to get started and your data is safe and secure. Over 200,000 people are using this software and are very happy with it.

I wear my hair quite short and curly. Every three months, I go and get a curly permanent. Then every month, I go back and get a haircut. It is so easy to care for. I just brush my hair and go. It is great for summer and this has been a hot summer. They say as you age your hair should get shorter and shorter for the best look. I do not like to see women 65 and up with long hair. It does not look good on them. If they are trying to look young, it isn't working :0)

Naturopath Clinics

Every day people go to their doctors for various health problems. Generally, they get a small physical and the doctor asks a few questions and prescribes a prescription medicine he feel will cure your condition or at least help it. I find many of my friends are turning to naturopath clinics in order to treat their health conditions naturally without prescription medicines. If you live in Canada or perhaps even close to the Canadian border, you may want to search out naturopathic doctors in Toronto. It is easy to get an appointment by calling their phone numbers of two clinics that are available. They will give you a very good examination and blood work and advise you whether they can help you or not with your health problems. Not only that but on your first visit if you take along a copy of their form, available on the Internet, you will receive $30 worth of natural nutritional supplements if you make your appointment before August 31st.

We are really hurting for rain. In looking at the map it looks like there is a lot headed right at us. I hope it turns into a good all day soaking rain. We have only had about 1/2" twice in two months. The crops are dead in many parts of the State. Farmers are cutting it for silage. What a shame. At least some good will be gotten out of it but it will make a real shortage of corn and beans this year. Grocery prices will continue to rise. It's a bad situation.

Brother's Surgery

My brother had a colonoscopy about 2 weeks ago and Monday he started passing blood like crazy. I took him to ER and they did a scan and found his stomach was bleeding. He was losing blood faster than they could give it to him. They had to go in and cauterize several veins and in 3 months they will have to go in again and cauterize maybe that many more. If it stops, that will be it but if it doesn't, they will have to go in again in another 3 months and cauterize some more. The whole one side of his stomach was raw and a vessel had burst causing the bleed. I hope he will get to go home tomorrow and will be ok now for the next 3 months at least or more.

Colonoscopy Tests

This is a great test to determine if you have or could possibly have colon cancer in the near future. My husband had the test and they found a huge tumor. They were able to remove it completely and in time. He did not have too have any follow up treatments such as radiation or chemotherapy. Colon Cancer kills many people each year. If you haven't had yours, please do so. It could save your life.
