Gas and Food Prices

I took a trip to my hometown today.  The weather was gorgeous.  The trees are all turning beautifully.  On the way home I stopped at a town near home where the gas price was lower than at home.  It pays to fill up every chance you get to save some money.  Then I went to the grocery store there and saved a great deal on a few things I needed.  It was a good trip all around.

New Mexican Restaurant

Yesterday I traveled to see my son and his family 2 hours away.  We went to the Zoo and afterwards went for a late lunch at his favorite Mexican restaurant.  It was a new one to me.  We had a great lunch and everyone was really full.  Then we took a drive thru the city and saw where they all work and visited a bit with a grandson at their apartment.  It was a great fun day.  It was a bit chilly but that was better than the 90's we have been having in the past month.

Briefcase for Men

In today's world, a  briefcase for men is a necessity.  A great many men travel long distances to visit their clients and need one that can carry everything they need, plus having a handle so they can pull it like a small suitcase.  Others may prefer a different style,  one that will hold the necessary papers and laptop required for their job.  Either way, they want a good looking, long wearing briefcase.  In checking the Internet, there is a huge selection of briefcases made of several materials other than leather.  This may be what you are looking for.  And all the name brands are available at great prices.  You may have a preference, as well, for black or brown and you can have many choices of styles in the color you want.

Roller Bearings

An integral part of a great number of machines and machinery is roller bearings. It is important that they be working properly and have not worn out. There are a great number of varying types of roller bearings for every kind of machines or machinery. It is amazing how many types and sizes there are. Also metric and standard bearings are available. No matter what the need, you can find exactly what you need just by knowing the size and type.

First Day of School

My little great granddaughter started to pre-school this year. She was really excited to go. I think she would have gone last year if she could have. She goes 4 days a week but would happily go all 5 days if they had it for 5 days. She goes a half day and her little brothers now play more together at home while she is gone. She is growing up so fast.

Bathroom Accessories

Your bathrooms are a very important part of your home. It is important to me that my bathrooms look attractive and have the proper lighting. A bathroom is where the whole family spends time every day of their lives, showering, putting on their makeup, combing their hair, doing those last minute looks in the mirror to be sure they look the way they want to before going out to dine or to visit company and friends. It is easy to update and provide a pleasant environment in your bathrooms by providing the most attractive and useful bathroom accessories. Good lighting is essential and choosing the best lighting can make such a difference in your bathroom. Perhaps you have not considered the knobs on your cabinets in the bathroom. However, changing those knobs can make such a difference. Of course having a set of toothbrush holders, soap dispensers, hand lotion dispenser and even kleenex box can greatly improve the looks of your bathroom. Baskets to hold pretty soaps are always nice to have too.

Great Wolf Lodge

The Great Wolf Lodge in the Dells in Wisconsin is a wonderful place for families to get together and have so much fun. Our daughter and husband went to the Lodge with all their family and grandchildren and you can see they were having a wonderful time. They love the good food too and playing in the water park indoors is such fun. They didn't have places like this when our kids were growing up and we probably couldn't have afforded it if they had. So I think it is wonderful to see our families going places together and enjoying everything together.

Bike Rack For Cars

In the Spring, Summer and Fall, bike riding is great fun and exercise also. Many people like to take their bikes along on vacation so that they can venture out once they have gotten situated in their Motel or camping spot. And if they are wishing to take their bikes on their car, then they start looking into a bike rack for cars. There are a number of various types. They may wish to put them on the back of their car or on top of the car. Prices vary too for different types. By checking the Internet, you can find just what you are looking for at the price you wish to pay. Often shipping is free too depending on how much you spend. I have put many miles on bikes over the years and love the sport and exercise of it.
