It has been very rainy today. Last night we had lots of fog in the area. It is better than snow!! The grass is already getting green. It seems so much cleaner after the rain. Zoe has been scared during the rain storms. She isn't usually like that. I think she just needs to get used to the sound of thunder again.

It's late

Another day and I'm up to late. Been posting and had some problems with one. Finally figured it out and got it accepted. I'm learning. It's tough sometimes, but it's going pretty good. I got three opportunities completed tonight. That's pretty good for me. Will try again tomorrow. More money making opportunities in my future. :)

Hotel Reservations

I love to travel. Through the years I have planned our trips in many different ways. It use to be that I would have to call each motel/hotel line and ask them to send me their latest book, showing all of their motel/hotels in which ever state we were going to travel to or through. Not to mention trying to track down flights by calling many different airlines. To put together a package deal I would have to go through a travel agent. Well, those days are over! Now you can find so much information by just going to Hotel Reservations. This site is great! It has very competitive rates and awesome discount offers on world wide destinations. In searching for a hotel everything is available at your fingertips. You can do a search by address, amenities, zip codes or destination. Whether it's a hotel, motel, resort or vacation rental you're looking for, they have it all. The vacation rental is unlike a motel in that it doesn't have per person pricing, there is a set price for an entire vacation rental with a maximum number of persons allowed. If you have questions or just prefer to book over the phone rather then online, there is an 800 number displayed for you to use. Check out there flight information also. Just supply them with your departure and arrival dates, number of passengers, departure and arrival cities and type of flight you're wanting and they will do the rest. With in seconds you will be informed of a rate quote. Payment is made easy with their accepting Visa, MasterCard or American Express. There are discounts as well as rebates given for certain things. There's so much to see. When it comes to vacation packages they have it all. Do you need hotel and flight? Or maybe you will need a rental car, or just a flight and car rental. What ever the mix this site has it. I know where to go the next time I'm planning a trip. Check them out. It's worth your time. This is a paid post.


I am not sure how many YMCA's there are in the world but I know we are very fortunate to have one in our community. It celebrated its 20th year recently and our family has benefited from it from the start. As our children were growing up it was a great place for them to learn how to swim or just hang out with friends.

Auto Insurance

Have you ever been frustrated in your search for car insurance? Well, there's a great website for online auto insurance quotes, Most states now require vehicles to be insured. Some people have just the minimum coverage, but many would suggest that you have additional insurance. For those of you needing Connecticut or Maryland Auto Insurance, I think this site could be what you're looking for. It's now been made so easy to access online insurance quotes. Check them out today.

Zoe's Haircut

We have a great dog! She's a Bichon. The only problem is that she needs to have her hair cut about every 6 weeks. She looks so cute though when she comes home. She'll be all cleaned up and have bows in her hair. Her groomers name is Stephanie and Zoe knows it. She loves her. All you have to do is mention Stephanie's name and Zoe's ears perk up. Tomorrow's the big day.

Classified Ads

Have you been thinking about placing an ad? Maybe you thought it was a hard thing to do, but do I have great news for you! It has never been more simple to do. The must see website is, which started as a classified ad provider in the UK, but they offer much more. You can find local news, weather, community events and information. Have you ever heard of classifieds that are totally free? Well these are. You can place ads for many things including property, vehicles, jobs and almost anything else you might think of. Check them out today and save yourself some money.

What a gorgeous day! It's in the 70's! I love it. We went to church this morning and then Bill went to visit his mom in the nursing home. She has Alzheimer's and isn't doing very well. He said that he couldn't wake her up. She was so tired. It also gave him a chance to visit a little bit with his brother who was there visiting also. Alzheimer's is a terrible disease. It steels away everything you knew about that person. They know longer know you or understand the simple things in life. It just doesn't seem fair.

Big Screen

Here we sit after a long day of shopping. We started out this morning by going out of town and boy was it foggy!! There was a small chip and crack in the windshield of the pickup so we stopped by a windshield repair place and got it fixed. On the way back home we stopped by mom and dad's with a desktop computer from uncle Neal. We got it set up and now they can use the desktop and their laptop. So, now we are home and have things put away. We are just going to relax with our dog Zoe and watch a movie on the big screen. We got the TV recently from BestBuy online. We saved alot of money and shipping was free. You can't beat that. We shopped other places but they wanted about sixty dollars for delivery.

Computer Rentals

Have you ever found yourself wanting to find an inexpensive way to make a positive impression while putting on a meeting or during one of your business conventions? If a person had to go out and purchase an entire audio visual package such as a plasma display, floor stands, audio speakers and a DVD/VCR combo player, it would be at great expense.

Spring Has Sprung!

Does it feel like Spring to you? I know we have lost lots of snow and there is grass showing, but it is still pretty cool outside. It is supposed to warm up this week. I am looking forward to that. I have always said that 'I would rather mow than shovel'!! Speaking of shovels, I cleaned up the garage a bit this afternoon and put the big snow pusher away for the year. I hope I don't have to get it back out til next year.

Saturday, March 17, 2007


Well the weekend is here and trying to catch up at home. Went and bought groceries and picked up somethings for the house. Visited our daughter and her husband and got our dog Zoe back. It was weird to be without her for so long. She seems to have adjusted well. She's a great dog!

Under the Cabinet TV/DVD

We recently found a great deal on a GE under the cabinet TV/DVD player. I had been looking for one of these for quite awhile. I had read up on many other brands but since we already had a GE cd player, I figured I would stay with a brand that had worked well for us in the past. It was easy to put in and it works great.

What a beautiful day again!! It was near 55 degrees this morning when we got up and the temperature should get to 80 this afternoon. We have some plans for the day but won't overdo either. Tomorrow we head back home after a great week at our son and daughter in laws place. We have enjoyed the trip and it is always nice to see the kids.

What a day

Had a nice day in Texas again. :0) Got up this morning to a little bit of rain and then it really warmed up for us. Went out to eat and did a little shopping. Then we headed downtown Dallas to the Medieval Times Dinner Show. That was a lot of fun. Reminded me of the Dixie Stampede we went to in Myrtle Beach.

American Idol

We are watching American Idol tonight and since I am not 'musical' I don't always understand the critical comments given by the three judges. I think all of the contestants are good but I do enjoy some more than others. I asked my daughter in law, Diana, why she didn't try out for American Idol when it came to San Antonio. I would rather listen to her.

Another day in Texas!

Well, we're having fun down here in Texas. Weather was just gorgeous this morning. Would love to have bottled it up to take home with us. We went to a Wax Museum. It was awesome! It had a full section on the life of Jesus, from his birth to his Resurrection. It was so cool.

Track internet activity with Keylogger!

I am amazed at all of the ways the internet has progressed and the capabilities it possesses. When my kids were at home, I was always worried about what kind of stuff they would find themselves into on the internet. I didn't know a lot about it and always hoped for a program that would help me monitor what they got into. Well, keylogger offers just that!

Before, I only knew of those programs that helped block certain sites. These programs were often times frustrating because they would end up blocking almost every site and became more of a pain than a help. Keylogger offers the internet site blocking but also many other things like recording screen snapshots, IM's, programs launched, and even chat logs! You do not have to be a parent to find Keylogger helpful!

If you're a parent, employer, or just internet enthusiast who wants to monitor your own computer usage, keylogger is for you! For me, the most appealing aspect of keylogger was that I could have used it for monitoring and keeping my children safe. I will be sharing this site with all of my friends and family who have children. As helpful as it is for parents like myself, this program is great for employers as well! There are so many large businesses, and even small businesses, who are worried about efficiency and want to make sure their employees are using their time wisely and getting their work done. Not to mention the millions of people who love to use the internet and just want to use it to track what they are doing from day to day.

Do not hesitate to checkout keylogger today! This program is helpful to all internet users and is a great investment!

Time in Dallas

We have been having a great time in Texas. Today we took the train to Dallas and visited the museum near where President Kennedy was shot back in 1963. We also had lunch downtown Dallas. It rained a little last night but was very nice weather today. It sounds like it will be pleasant tomorrow too. We talked to our daughter and it sounds like it was nice at home too. We hope that more of the snow is gone by the time we get home.

Projector Rental

A couple of years ago I was planning for my children's graduations. Then we also had two weddings within the same summer. I would love to have come upon this great website at the time. I was in need of something that could project some family pictures. An lcd projector rental would have been awesome.! But how would I have gotten it delivered, have it in time and then return it? Well, this website has it all! A person can rent a projector from anywhere in the United States and have it delivered and returned by FedEx in a timely manner. It's not only useful for graduations and weddings, but also for business meetings, trade show events and Super Bowl parties. It would be wonderful for any type of presentation you might want to project. Check them out today at

Well, we're here! Bill, Jake and I flew down to Texas to see our son Josh and his wife Diana. WOW is it nice here. Been in the 80's! We're heading to downtown Dallas tomorrow. Going to go see where Kennedy was shot. Also going to try and take in a Medieval Times Dinner Show. It sounds like it's kind of like the Dixie Stampede Show we went to in Myrtle Beach. Should be fun.

Grand Babies!!!

We are so excited!! A couple of weeks ago we found out that our daughter is having a baby, but was not to tell anyone about it yet. She is due Oct. 28th. Then our son called and they told us that they are also having a baby and are due Oct. 27th. Well, we all finally through three-way calling, each couple told the other and then called their younger brother and told him also. Boy, was everyone surprised! :) Can't wipe the smiles off of our faces. What an exciting year it will be!!

Trip to Texas

Spring break for the kids and time to get away. With our son home from college we are going to see our other son and daughter in law in Texas for a week. We are looking forward to going where it is warmer. I hope that a lot of the snow is gone by the time we get home.

Windows and Siding

Yeah, our new windows are in and the siding will be done by the end of the week. What a project!!! It was one of those jobs that needed to be done. We thought about doing this big job ourselves but now we are having a construction company do it. We are very glad we hired out the job. It may have taken us until summer to get done. Maybe even longer!!

Computer Power Cables

Do you ever get tired of the mess behind your computer? I do. It seems like the cable cords are much too long for what I need. Wouldn't it be nice to find a place that offers custom lengths and different gauge wires for equipment with a need for higher amp/volt ratings? Well, I've found the site! They have much more. In their USB Adapter link you can find a variety of connectors. There's also a kit that includes interchangeable connectors making it a "12 in 1" digital camera cable. They have computer power cords to fit your needs whether it's for home or a lab. Check them out today. This is a paid post.

Sunny day

What a beautiful sunny day!! It looked so nice from the living room window. Outside however,it was cold and the roads were icy. We drove to see our daughter and son in law.

Snow snow go away!!

I am so ready for the snow to be gone. My son and daughter in law are in a warm state and I have been hearing how hot it is there! I would personally prefer mowing over shoveling. So much snow it is now hard to throw it over the already heaping piles. I hope tomorrow brings sun and warmth.

Book Review

As I read an excerpt from the collection, Hunger and Other Stories by Ian Randall Wilson called ‘A Wire Man’, I found myself kind of caught up within the story. I am not typically a reader but found this story to be one that was hard to stop reading. I felt that within the story one could see what some relationships between fathers and sons are like. In ‘ A Wire Man’ it spoke of a man who had a business and had no time for anything else. The man had a son who worked in the business but wanted more, including a better relationship with his son than he had with his father. Although he tried to do things differently, he pretty much ended up like his father. Whether you are a reader or not you may want to check out this book and others by Ian Randall Wilson. I think it would be worth your time. This is a paid post.

Thursday, March 1, 2007


Although it really isn't that cold outside, it sure is nice to be in the house after shoveling. Sometimes it is easy to take for granted all the simple pleasures we have. I feel bad for all those people in areas that have had even worse weather than we have. From tornadoes to flooding to blizzards, all can be terrible things. Stay safe.

American Idol

Well, tonight's the night. On American Idol they will decide which two girls and which two guys are going to go. It's been fun watching from the beginning. I really enjoy when they are traveling from city to city. So many funny people. Bill and I just crack-up. Laughter is a good thing. :)


I never knew what a widget was. It's a flash player that streams podcasts, music, photos, videos, and any other type of file you might have. It sounds so great! Check it out online at Widget. They are offering unlimited bandwidth with this widget and will also host up to 1 gb of files for free. You can put the widget on your Myspace, Blogs and more. Then you can share your files with others. Sounds like a great opportunity! Check out this site.

This is a paid post.


Sure is quiet around here. I enjoy being home. I think I may make some homemade soup. That always sounds good on a cold winter day. Bill just finished scooping the deck off. He said he doesn't think he's ever moved that much snow off of there. Sure do miss our dog Zoe. She's still staying with Jenna our daughter. We figured she wouldn't do so good here at home while they are working on the house.

Online Coupon Codes

More and more I find myself shopping for items online. It's just so much quicker and easier without having to leave home. I don't have to take the time or expense to travel from place to place. One of my favorite stores is Target. While browsing the web I found this great site for online coupon codes! I can get great coupons that can save me even more money than if I were to travel out to the store. They have offers for free shipping on select items which can also come in handy. There are weekly specials that are fun to check out. So remember when shopping on line, be sure and look into this site! This is a paid post.


Woke up feeling a migraine today. Still kinda hanging on, but think I need to just go take a nap. That usually helps some. Thought the windows/siding guy would have been here today, but can understand why he can't make it. He comes from 40 miles away. I wouldn't have come either.

Jeff Childress

Boy, do I enjoy Christian music! When I was younger there weren't as many choices out there like there is today. Now it seems there is music to please just about anyone. I came across this christian singer, Jeff Childress, and listened to some of his music online. WOW! I was impressed! He seems to sing from the heart. He covers areas that touch many of our lives. He has a song titled "Little Things". It's a very catchy tune. It speaks of being thankful for the things that God gives us including the beauty that surrounds us each day. He sings of the beauty of God's masterpiece. What makes our lives complete? As he sings, it's not the amount of money we have or the earthly belongings that dictate our success, but the blessings of God which include our family and friends. I would encourage you to check this artist out and see for yourselves what you might be missing. Thank you Jeff for using your talents for God's praise. This is a paid post.


What a day. Not nice out there at all. My husband and I both went to work and thank goodness are back home early. It's like a blizzard out there. Wasn't fun driving home. We're probably getting about 2 or 3 inches of snow an hour. It's crazy how people are out and about when they don't need to be. They're closing roads around us already. Think we're in to stay.
