I have never golfed but my husband just loves it. I have told him that someday I will try it. I think it would be fun to learn but I have been too busy with other things so far. I will keep telling him that I will learn to golf and maybe someday I will. I do have some old clubs in the garage.The game seems like it would take up so much time. There are times when he will actually be gone all day golfing. He did get the chance to golf on Monday with Scott but that is the first he has been so far this year. He has a couple other days he is planning on so he should be happy. Who knows, maybe I will surprise him and go golfing sometime.

Interest Free Credit Cards

With the fast pace of todays life and all there is to do, the last thing we want to worry about is our finances. I have found that using a credit card when doing a variety of shopping has made things easier for me. Everything is documented and sent to me in one handy monthly bill. If I make sure that money is set aside as I spend, then there isn't a problem. Now it has been made even easier for me with the interest free credit card that is out there. The site I came across has a great introductory offer. Along with that comes the 0% for balance transfers for a time and also special bonus offers. Look into Mint Credit Cards today.

Clean Up

How many times have you stumbled over stuff around the house and thought 'we need to get rid of some if this'? Well that is what went on at our house in the past week. We have a room in the basement that we call the office. Of course we can't use it as an office! There was too much stuff in the room to even walk through it let alone actually use it for something. To be honest we have been using it, for storage. Store it here and there and everywhere! We got a dumpster from the city and before the weekend was over we had it filled. Today I called the city to have it dumped so tonight we filled it again. From old toys to clothes and games we will never use again, it got dumpstered! There are some good used stuffed animals that we are going to give to a charity but two loads are out of our house. It is a great feeling to finally be able to walk into our office and see the things we have been looking for. Try it, you will be glad you did.

Drug Rehab

There are a lot of struggling women out there today that need help in gaining back their lives due to alcohol and drug abuse. Now there is a special drug treatment center for women. It is called "Orchid Recovery Center for Women". It is designed especially for them. They have done a detailed research and built a peaceful, quiet and caring environment. It has proven to be extremely successful for all ages. They offer personal and private consultations right over the phone. It is also set up to be very reasonable compared to other treatment centers. A new approach For Women, by Women. Look into this site, it may change your life.

Miss Universe

Are you a fan of the Miss Universe pageant? I really enjoy watching this each year when I have the chance. Actually it is on right now. My daughter and I like watching the pageant together but she is not here with me tonight. I know she is watching though. Did you happen to see Miss USA fall down? I am hoping that her little slip doesn't hurt her chances. She got up and appeared to give a little wink at the audience and judges which I thought was a very nice touch. Whoever wins I will be happy for them. They are all winners in my eyes. Well, they are about to announce the winner.

The Police

Have you heard the great news? The band, The Police, will be on a new worldwide tour! Wow, I am pumped and can't wait to see this great band in concert. I have been a fan for many years and would love to see The Police in person. I was so excited to hear that they would be on tour and that there will be a new police cd. They will appearing at so many different venues that I may just get the chance to go to one of many concerts. This is one group that has a very wide fan base. Whether you are a teenager or well past your twenties or even thirties you are the right age to be a fan of The Police. This group has been around for many years and are celebrating on this worldwide tour. I would encourage you to check out their website and see where you can get tickets and find out if they are coming to a location near you. Even if you must travel some to see The Police I know you will not be disappointed. I am already making plans to see them. And that is not all! I have a chance to win their new two disc CD. That would be so cool, having music I really enjoy available to me 24-7 on the new police cd.

A Day At The Lake

Today was Memorial Day and we spent it with Scott, Jenna, Jake and Renee. We stayed at Jenna's last night and this morning Bill and Scott went golfing. They had a great time and enjoyed the weather too. This afternoon we all went to the lake and had a nice time on the pontoon and jet skis. Jake gave a lesson or two to Bill on how to soak another person while on a jet ski.
It looked a bit like it was going to rain but it actually stayed quite nice and we all got some sun. Bill thought Zoe would have liked the pontoon ride but I think it was best that she did not go with us to the lake. Wish Josh and Di could have joined us. They are our oldest son and his wife that live in Texas. Then the day would have been complete. A good time was had by all.


With life the way it is today. Everything you do and deal with seems to be expensive. If you have any kind of project going on at your house, it can seem to financially add up to the point where sometimes a person needs some extra cash flow. Years ago it wasn't quite as easy to just take out a loan, but today there are so many choices out there that you will not usually see a problem in getting some help. Even if you're looking at buying a home. There's a website that covers many different areas of finance. www.nationsfinance.co.uk. You can submit a detailed application form and let them do the wide range mortgage search for you. They will give you a mortgage quote that will closely meet your personal needs. They even accept first time buyers and poor credit applicants. There are different types of loans such as interest only mortgages. This is where you are paying on the interest only and the original borrowed sum is still owed in full. They have information on a variety of different companies and interest rates. So next time you're looking to borrow for that important purchase, check into this site! Here are a couple of recent articles found on this website.

Memorial Day

So what are you going to do on Memorial Day? Many people will be getting together with friends and family to grill out or maybe do something at a lake. It is a great time to do things like that but it is important to remember why we should be celebrating this particular day. We need to remember all those who are serving and have served our country to help keep peace for our families and friends. If they had not done that for us we might not have been able to spend relaxing times enjoying a day set apart. Enjoy, but remember those who have done their best to keep us free.

Black Diamond Jewelry

I don't know about you, but I love jewelry. All kinds of jewelry. My husband is so good about getting me new pieces for different occasions. When we were looking for wedding rings, so many years ago, they didn't have what they call Black Diamond Jewelry. Now they do! They are just beautiful! I came across this site that shows you just how awesome these stones really are. Black Diamond Jewelry is very popular now. You can often even see the celebrities wearing them. This jewelry should be a part of everyone's daily wardrobe. The website, MySolitaire, carries everything from Diamond Pendants, Diamond Studs, Black Diamond Rings to even Black Diamond rose cut jewelry.
The stones are placed in all different metals. 14K gold, 18K gold and platinum. There is a large price range also. They can range from $50 and under, $50-$250,$250-$500 and $500 and above. With MySolitaire there is always free shipping. Another great reason to check them out. They offer interest free payment plans for this fine quality jewelry. You may even want to do some shopping for someone else. They have free gift packaging available. There is a wide selection to choose from. Go on this site today. You'll be glad you did.

Sunny Day

Well, it turned out to be another nice day. After all the rain we had yesterday, it was sure good to see the sun shining. We've been gone all day. Had to take Zoe for her hair cut and then of course Bill and I had to do the same. Stopped and bought groceries and picked up a part for our stove. Bill got it all put back together and in working order. Thank goodness for that. :)


Florida has a huge $87 billion industry providing food across the world. It generates a great income for Floridians. They are hard working people, helping to provide for all of us. It's a quiet industry, but definitely makes it's mark around the globe. There's a video out called, Rev it up with " Fresh From Florida". It shows just a small segment about this beautiful industry in their state.

Haircut for Zoe

Tomorrow is the big day for Zoe. She gets her hair cut and her 6-8 week grooming. We should really probably take her more often. She is looking pretty scraggly right now. She enjoys going to see Stephanie, her groomer. We give her a bath when she needs one and she has gotten better about that. She still is not big on getting her face wet at bath time though. We try to do her face first and use a very gentle shampoo, then do the rest of her. She will be six years old next month so hopefully she will look nice on her birthday.

PPP Direct

Have you ever wondered if it would be possible for advertisers to approach you directly about writing special posts for them? I have seen that other PayPerPost competitors do this, and wondered when or if PayPerPost would ever do the same. Well, for those who have ever asked themselves this question as I have...know that PayPerPost has now made this possible with PPP Direct. Not only that, but it's even better than what I ever could have imagined.

Not only is PayPerPost allowing bloggers to put a PPP Direct widget on their blog inviting advertisers to connect with them about writing special posts to make money blogging...they are also doing so while looking out for the best interest of the Posties. Now this didn't surprise me, as PayPerPost has always tried to help Posties out in many different ways. They're looking out for us bloggers by making sure that we get the bulk of the money that we are making through these opportunities. Unlike some other companies out there who take up to 50% sometimes, PayPerPost is only taking 10%, 5% of that being used for fees used to make payments via PayPal. Now this was something that I loved to hear!!

I am really anxious to get this PPP Direct badge on my site and begin this new process. It's a great way for bloggers to continue to get their name out there with advertisers, while making some descent money too!

Well, Bill is back from three days of training in Des Moines for work. It is nice to have him home. He had started supper by the time I got home from work today. He noticed that the oven wasn't getting warm like it should and then I remembered that I had seen a big spark in the oven last night. It looks like the lower heating element isn't working sooooo we are going to try to cook supper using the broiler setting. I am not sure how it will work, but we will find out. Bill will check into getting a new heating element. If that doesn't work I guess we will be buying a new stove.

The Thrifty Scot

Who doesn't want to save themselves some money? Most if not all of us do. Some people find that their finances are out of control and need some assistance in getting that control back. There's this website that is there for just that purpose. It's a no nonsense, plain speaking-money saving advice site. The Thrifty Scot can help you out. They have information on a Credit Card, showing different types and interest rates for example. Also the way credit card accounts are set up to gain a person some nice rewards. I find that a person needs to just make sure you can pay the bill when it comes at the end of the month and you won't fall into a huge debt snag. Here are a couple of the articles from their site. Look into them.

Great Day!

My sister-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had surgery a couple of weeks ago and they thought she may need both chemo and radiation. Today when she went back to the Doctors, they told her they had caught the cancer at a stage 1 and that she wouldn't need chemo after all. Only the radiation. Thank the Lord for a good report!

Need A Loan?

Seems these days it becomes necessary to have to take out loans for different reasons in our lives. It's so nice to be able to use the ease of the internet to research different avenues. I came across this Insurance Company, Co-operative Loans. They are bound by an ethical policy, which caught my eye. Money that they lend has not come from the profits of unnecessary pollution or human rights abuses. I think that's great! They have personal, flexible and Career Development Loans. There is a Loan Payment Protection Plan also. For more information about this great company go into their website.

American Idol!

I'm so excited to watch American Idol this week. Can you believe that Melinda Dolittle was let go last week? I was sure she would win it all. She's not necessarily my first choice, but she is very good and has been consistent throughout. I hope she goes far. So..... Blake or Jordin??? Who will it be? At this stage of the game they are all awesome. So who knows. I personally enjoy listening to Blake. He's unique and will take risks. It will be fun to see where he goes from here. Either one of them will be deserving of the American Idol Title. Tune in on Wed. for the Season Finale.

What a busy weekend. We went down to watch our daughter's Pre Kindergarten class graduate and move on to the next stage in life, Kindergarten. It was so cute. The kids just love our daughter. It was great to watch. Then we went to a Graduation Open House. Laura's, our daughter in-law's sister. It was a good time and we got to see Diana (our daughter in-law). She was home from Texas. She is expecting in Oct. and looks so cute with her baby tummy. Then back home to more graduation celebrations. It's a busy month for most.

Weather Change

Wow, the weather has really changed in the past couple days!! It was very windy and quite hot on Sunday and it started to cool off by Monday. Today it was only in the 60's after the nice rain we had last night. It seemed like the rain was one of those gentle rains. We had some thunder but no big storms in the area. Tomorrow it is supposed to be another cooler day. We went from having the air conditioner on at home yesterday to being too cold with just the windows open today. It is like Bill always says, 'I'd rather mow than shovel'.

American Greetings

I sure enjoy making some of my own greeting cards. I saw where there is this great three-day "Free-View" promotion celebrating the redesign of the americangreetings.com website.

We have been enjoying blogging. It seems to be the norm that we get home and immediately check for opps and get busy writing a post. So far it has not been hard to think of something to write about. Whether it is about what has happened during the day or not we just start writing. It is also fun to read blogs of other people like family. Sometimes it is a good way to catch up on what is going on with those people.

Rewards Program

We all have needs and spend a lot of time shopping for all kinds of things in our lives. On line it has been made easy to search for what ever that may be. A person no longer has to spend time traveling to find what they need. Especially with gas prices as high as they are today. Who wouldn't want to save travel time and earn rewards at the same time as shopping. Now you can earn up to $1 Million Cash for retirement by simply making everyday purchases through this great new website I found, uTANGO rewards program. This is a program set up for singles, engaged and recently married couples. Once you are married you are qualified to select either the $250,000, $500,000 or $1 Million Life-Stage Rewards Plan. Then the married couple must stay married and accumulate enough Tango Bucks each year to stay qualified for their Life-Stage Reward Plan payouts at 10 years , 20 years and 30 years. What a wonderful way to earn money for your retirement just by making your regular purchases on a daily basis. First you need to sign up as a member. It's absolutely free. Can't beat that. Then for example if I were to go onto this great uTANGO rewards program site and shop at Target and purchase a gift for someone, it would apply towards a cash reward. Or maybe I'm thinking about taking a trip and go to Southwest Airlines, which is also on this great site and purchase a vacation package. This too would go towards my rewards for the future. Purchases at nearly 300 popular online stores earn members TANGO Bucks (points) towards cash rewards. No other rewards program pays more for membership loyalty and it is so user friendly. Check it out today. This is a paid post.

It has been awhile since we have had rain. But today the weather station said we should expect some rain and maybe storms. As you know we have some new plants in front of our house. It started to thunder about an hour ago and it did actually rain a little bit. I hope it continues but without any harsh storms. Zoe doesn't usually like stormy weather but she has been very good tonight. The air is still and the sky looks pretty cool. It sounds like the thunder is getting farther away as I write this.

Navigational Systems

We went on a road trip to Myrtle Beach last fall and decided we would take along a navigational tool. Boy do they come in handy. You just can't get lost with one of those on board. You can turn off and it will re-calculate the direction you will need to go next. When stopping for the evening, we would be hungry and not sure where to go and it could give us the locations of different types of restaurants and guide us there. We were also looking for the nearest Walmart at one point and it helped us to find the location. It was great!

Tom Tom

Gas Prices

Can you believe how high gas prices have gotten to be again? I just don't understand what guides the increase and decrease of cost. It seems kind of strange to me that just as soon as the weather turns nice the prices seem to take a hike. Is there something to that and can our Government do something to control all of this? With summer here and vacations near someone help us out with these prices!

Hotel Reservations

Times have sure changed. Thank goodness for that. I remember trying to plan our family trips. Every year I would spend hours upon hours searching for just the right location to travel to and also just the perfect motels to stay at along the way. I would make many phone calls and wait to receive information in the mail that might aid me in my planning. Eventually, I would pull things together and we would travel. Now it has improved so much. I can just go to Hotel Reservations website and find everything I need. One step compared to many. My time is valuable and I appreciate this site. They have headings such as Hotels, Flights, Cars, Vacation Rentals and Vacation Packages. They even have Bed and Breakfast and Condo Rentals. There is a link that you can first search out your destination of interest. Is it a beach or a bed and breakfast you're looking for? Maybe a resort or something more family oriented or just an unforgettable golf destinations. I know that would be the one my husband would choose. They even have a city guide for the area you may be looking into. Once you've decided where your location of choice would be, then the site can assist you in finding the ideal place to stay. There are many Hotels, Motels and Resorts to choose from, at special internet rates. There are also great rates and discounts on world wide destinations. You can also look into motels by the name of a chain. For example the Embassy Suites, if you have your favorite motels to stay at when traveling. Then there's the vacation packages to choose from. They include Air, Hotel and Car Rental. This can be a time saver to have everything you need brought up before you. So the next time you are looking into a vacation. Be sure to check out "Hotel Reservations".


Here it is Friday already. It's so nice to have a day to be home and catch up on somethings. I have some work to complete on the computer, bills, laundry, grocery list and some cleaning. Still trying to get more stuff together to take down to Jake, our youngest son, next weekend. Always things to do. Wouldn't it be great to have a day off and have absolutely nothing to do? I would really like that sometime.

Time Management Software

Life just gets so busy. I seem to have post-it notes everywhere. I can feel so unorganized sometimes. Now I've found a website that can help me out in this arena with their time management software. It is www.effexis.com. It can aid me in organizing my time, project planning and at the same time make my life more productive. I can now master my time. They also have a support system in place where you can request features, provide feedback and share your own ideas with others. They even have a free trial if you want to see what it's really like. It also feels good to know that there is somewhere that the details of my life can be documented and not forgotten. Check this site out today. You'll be glad you did.

Lawn Sprayer

How many of you spray your yard for weeds? I usually put on some kind of dry chemical on the grass to help keep the crabgrass away and I have a hand held sprayer that I can mix liquid weed killer. I had also purchased one of those hose end sprayers and was ready to apply the stuff tonight. I had already done much of the front yard and noticed that the container still had the same amount in it as when I started. Bummer!! I then tried to see why the sprayer was not working correctly. No such luck. I then got out the old hand held unit. I was glad I had it in the garage. I am now thinking about buying a new hose end model.

The Movie "Bug"

WOW! Have you seen these posters that are out to advertise the new and upcoming bug movie by Lionsgate Films? I'm always looking at posters of movies to get a feel of what they might be about. These give you a sense of an intense scary movie. It looks mystifying and sinister. For those of you out there that love a horror film, I think this is just the one for you. By the posters it seems that there will be bugs like we've never seen before. Will they kill people or just take over them? It leaves you wanting to know the mystery of this thriller. Ashely Judd is the main character in the movie and is displayed on both posters. She looks very serious and troubled. Will she make it or not. The posters are clear-cut, showing the stars and their involvement with these creatures/bugs. I enjoy a good action filled, nail-biting movie. This seems to be one that could get your heart racing a bit. The bug movie looks like it could be that type of motion picture. The posters draw you in and cause you to wonder what will really happen. Is Ashley Judd their queen? Well, soon you can find out. This film will be released at the end of the month. Check it out.

Beautiful Day

What a gorgeous day it was today. Can't believe how the week has flown by again. Seems like yesterday we were packing up to move things down to my son's new apartment and now it's been a whole week already. Have plans to go and get some groceries this weekend. Also, want to spend sometime with our mothers on Mother's Day. We have a graduation open house to attend that day also. This weekend will fly by too.


Do you ever think about making some extra money on the side? I've looked into different ways on the internet and many of them will cost you money in some way.

Well, we're starting on our yard now. We pulled out all of the trees and bushes in front of the house last summer, so now we need to replant. I've picked out all of the plants and they were delivered to our home over the weekend. I'm going to pay the Greenhouse to come and plant them. Want to protect our investment. :) Sounds like they should get it all planted by the end of the week. That will be good.

Male Enhancement

There are so many different companies that sell male enhancement drugs and supplements.
If you are looking for one to try you might want to consider Mega-V which can be purchased from an online store at www.strandarcadepharmacy.co.nz. MEGA V is an all herbal supplement, which means no prescription is needed. The website explains that it is designed for adult males and comes in three different size packs, 2,5 or 10 capsules per pack. One MEGA V capsule taken with a glass of water forty five minutes before intercourse may be just what you need. MEGA V naturally supports stamina and energy and normal male sexual function. The idea that there is a product that can do this naturally is very appealing. Mega-V contains herbs from China which are listed in the website. The next time you are wondering which male enhancement product to use, try the natural alternative MEGA V. You may just find what you have been looking for.

A Day Home

With all that was going on this weekend, I decided to take the day off from work. It's nice just to be home and catch up on somethings. My son would like to use our desk downstairs, so I need to clean that out and get it ready to haul down to him in a couple of weeks. Also have laundry to do and want to make a meal for a friend of ours that just got home from the hospital. My sister-in-law had surgery today also. They thought she may have breast cancer. They found a small Centinal node and it was benign! PTL! We're very thankful for that. She will have a good recovery and prognoses. :)


Shopping and finding the best deal can be quite time consuming. I came across this website CouponChief.com, which offers online coupons, coupon codes and online shopping discounts. There are over 1000 stores to chose from, so you can find almost anything you may be looking for. I enjoy checking out the deals for BestBuy coupons. They have free online coupons delivered straight to your inbox. How much quicker and easier is that. Recently while shopping for a MP3 Player, my husband spent hours searching the web for the best deal. Now we could have found a great deal, saved time and money by just going to this website. They have also recently made some changes with easy to use scanning coupons. Check them out for a variety of your needs. This is a paid post.

Busy Weekend

So how was your weekend? We started ours by helping our son move into his new apartment. Actually he and his girlfriend, Renee, had moved a lot of his stuff already. We went to eat pretty late at Olive Garden, one of my wife's favorite places to eat. We were very tired after a long day and night. Jake graduated from college on Saturday and we were again quite busy. After graduation we had to eat again. We decided to eat big again, this time at Texas Roadhouse. Yum! We came home today and hope to get a good nights sleep. Not that we didn't sleep well while we were away, we did. But it is always nice to sleep in your own bed.

Bookkeeping for Small Businesses

In starting a business you may find it difficult to manage all of the paper work that can be involved. Then there is the search for bookkeeping pricing. With payroll and finances in running the business it can become quite costly to hire someone, let alone find the right people to take care of it all. I came across this website , www. accountingparadise.com, for precise bookkeeping services at a very small cost. Over the last three years they have worked with thousands of companies. Their main objective is to work proficiently at achieving the lowest price for their customers. They can also assist you in the area of payroll. It can be set-up by number of employees. You can even purchase QuickBooks products at a discount value if ordered from their website. Check them out today.

Free Music Downloads

Can you legally download music from the internet for your computer or MP3 player? I have heard different thoughts on this. Some websites claim they provide free downloads but when you check into them there are costs involved. I think it works to copy a CD onto the computer and then transfer it to an MP3 player. Isn't it? I have lots of music but there is so much on the net that would be nice to have too. But I want to have it legally.


For all of you history buffs out there, you may or may not know, but The The Americas were once Atlantis. The Americas use to be divided into 10 kingdoms. One of them was Atlantis, known as the lost continent, which is now Tampa, Florida. In researching this further I came across a useful website. I found the part about one of the Atlantis outposts, the treasure of Atlantis to be the most interesting, as it is still buried under Oak Island in Canada. I especially liked the story of the Oak Island Money Pit because it's mysterious and "captured imaginations of treasure hunters for over 200 years searching for a pirate's lost treasure buried in a money pit." If you would like to learn more and experience the story of Atlantis for yourself, check out this site. This is a paid post.

Bird Seed

I am hoping that someone reading this can give some advice as to what kind of bird seed to use to attract the smaller, non-messy birds, if there is such a thing. My mom and dad gave me a mesh hanging type feeder and said to get some thistle seed. Well, we bought some of the seed but have not seen any birds around the feeder at all in the past couple weeks that it has been hanging. Does it just take some time for the birds to check it out? Is there something else I am not doing correctly? Help me if you can.

Lawn Care

It's that time of year again. The grass just keeps growing. Can't complain though. It's good to have things greening up around here instead of that white stuff. Winter was long and we're ready for the nice weather. My husband is going to put some weed killer on the grass and then mow it. Or maybe it's the other way around. I don't know.... Anyway, it always looks so nice freshly cut. I like that smell also.


Have you ever heard of the site bid4prizes.com? I hadn't either until recently. I went to the site and watched a short video to see how a person can have the opportunity to win amazing prizes. You can use your cell phone to place a unique bid on a prize you would like to win. A unique bid means that you are the only one to have that particular bid. For example, if you were the only one to bid three cents on a new car and you were the one with the low bid, you would win the car! How cool is that? The site explains how you bid and any charges that may apply. It sounds fun to me. There is a BMW car up for bid. I would really like to win that! But, I personally wouldn't keep it. I would sell it or maybe trade it in on more than one vehicle that would suit me better. So, go to their site today and maybe win a fabulous prize.

Rain Rain Go Away

Well, it looks cloudy and rainy today. I don't think it's suppose to rain until late tonight. My daughter is coming today and is going to stay and go with us this weekend down to see my youngest son. We're moving him into his first apartment. He will graduate on Sat. from college. Yippee! That's always a wonderful thing for parents to experience. :) He's already gotten a great job and will start on Monday. Can't beat that. Lots to do in the next few days, but it should be a great time!

Zoe Had A Bath

Our dog is a Bichon and her name is Zoe. She has never been a real fan of her bath time, although she has gotten better. Two nights ago it was time for her bath and she came right into the bathroom and walked towards the tub! Once in the tub I try to get her head and face done first. I think it is her face that she is not thrilled with getting wet. She stands quietly, until she shakes water all over. When I am done washing and rinsing her she puts her front feet up on the tub edge and I dry her face first. It is fun to watch her run around the house trying to dry off.

Have Your Cake

A couple nights ago I was really craving chocolate cake. But we figured we didn't need it. I still am not saying that we NEED it, but last night my husband made the cake for me. It is just a nice snack. We won't overdo and eat it all in a night. It should last for about the next week, just a little eaten at a time. I would think many of you are like me and enjoy something you can just grab off the counter and fill the void a bit. So we are going to have our cake and eat it too.

Car Trouble

Not that anyone does, but I really don't like car trouble! My work car had an oil change a couple weeks ago. From there things have gone downhill. It then had a coolant line leaking. Right after that, the air conditioning compressor went out. Wait, I am not finished! The main pulley was not turning as it should, apparently it was wobbling. To top it off, the car seems to want to die every once in awhile. It is still at the garage with some kind of computer hooked up to it so that the mechanic can track what is going on with the car. The good thing is that I don't need the car the next couple days.

So now that our new siding and window job is finished, we can go on to our next project. Last fall we removed the old trees and shrubs from in front of the house. Now we plan on replacing them with new ones that I am getting from the local green house. I think we will have them plant too. The new plants cost plenty and I want someone with experience to do the job. I am sure we could do it, but when would we? Sometimes it is just easier to have the job done, don't you think? We already have plans for next year too, taking down the apple tree. That will be kind of tough since it has been a great tree. It produces very nice apples most years but it is in the way. By that I mean that it is in the spot that our garage will hopefully be! My husband has been talking about a garage for over twenty years and maybe within the next few years he will have it, right where he wants.

Digital Frames

American Idol

Well, what do you think about the American Idol show? I have never really watched it regularly until this year. I enjoyed the auditions and now I hate to miss any of the shows! I wonder who will be voted off tomorrow. I would not want to be the one to decide to get rid of any of them. They are all very good. I guess I do have my favorites. Time will tell. I think whoever gets voted off will still have a great career in their future. I plan on watching tomorrow and the rest of the season. Will you be watching too?

Web Directory

Have you ever noticed that often listings are placed on a search engine by PR, popularity or alphabetically? Wouldn't it be nice if you were to put a new listing on that had a low PR and still end up on the first page instead of the 15th where it has slight link value? Well, now there's a place you need to check out. It's the Big Web Links Directory. It is user friendly and offers a new and different technique for directory listings. It is one of the first to use this method, which is now becoming more popular. It sorts listings by a dollar figure, bid for placement, which gives absolute control over your position. The top 10 listings are displayed on the homepage and the top 20 on the top links page, which is a considerable advantage for those listings. The Web Directory is very sturdy with a Google PageRank of 7. Look into this today!

New Air Conditioner

Our old air conditioner was probably about thirty five years old. It still worked ok but apparently there are some new regulations concerning appliances. The newest versions require all new lines, I was told. Fortunately my plumber had a couple holdover units that would work without a lot of changes. Since we just got new windows and put new siding on the house, it was the right time to have the new air conditioner installed too. It is very nice looking besides working well. I think it is a larger one than I had before.

Gorgeous Weather

The weather has just been gorgeous these past couple of days! I was outside with Bill last night putting up one of our new plants, and I could have just sat on our deck swing for hours! The temperature was just perfect out...not too cold, and not too hot! Zoe has even been enjoying this weather...as she spends much time outside whenever she can. I hope the weather continues on like this, especially since we have a big weekend ahead of us!

This Weekend

I've been quite busy the past couple of weeks getting things ready so that we can go down and help our youngest son move out of his dorm and get settled into his new apartment. I've been boxing up some of the things and trying to make sure that we don't forget anything when we go down. It should be a fun weekend...his place sounds really nice! It's also the weekend that he graduates from college which is going to be so great to be a part of as well! We're all so proud of him and all he's accomplished!
