My Sister

I appreciate the guest post, Jewel Rodgers

My sister has recently moved to our area from out of state. She has three small children. Her husband works long hours, so she is home a lot by herself with the kids. She told me that she has some concerns about feeling safe since she is not familiar with the area. She asked about my home security system and wanted some more information about home security. I told her just to go online and search Family Home Security. She said she was able to find a lot of information about the benefits of having a home security system. I think that it is a great idea for her to have a security system installed, especially since she has small children. Her husband thought it was a great idea too. He said that he would feel more comfortable when he is working late, knowing that they feel safer at home. I am glad that my sister asked about it because I think that the peace of mind we get from a security system is definitely worth the money.

I,for one,am already tired of all the political ads. We are now getting fliers in the mail that bad mouth each candidate. And this is coming from their own party. What is wrong with that picture? What if they just tear each other down and don't accomplish anything that they had set out to do? Maybe they should ban together, pick the best candidate and make a bid for the White House.

Pool Fence Las Vegas

Almost a year ago my husband and I traveled to Las Vegas. What a city! They have lights everywhere. They say that city has one of the most expensive electric bills. I can sure see why. Everything seems like it's above the top! There was even a pool fence las vegas. Lights and all. It's a fun place to see.

Gutter Lights

During the winter months we hang Christmas lights on the gutter of our house. I usually buy new boxes of lights when they go on sale and just throw the old ones away. Many times in the past we have had lights that don't work properly so it is just easier to buy new ones. I think they add something to our home. They are very pretty.


Our youngest son was in a Tech program his senior year. He learned all about welding and I'm sure had heard of the esab line of products. They offer a variety of welding supplies. It's sure nice to go to one site and find what you're looking for. We were introduced to a variety of tools while Jake was in school. Things we had never heard of.

Golf Season

I know my husband doesn't want to admit it but his golf season is over for the year. That is, unless he travels to a warm state to get in some play. It is a game that he really loves. He has been golfing since he was a little boy. Starting the game playing right handed he soon switched to lefty. I don't mind playing but he is extreme. The most he has played in one day is 81 holes. For a time that is all he talked about.


I have been collecting Christmas ideas for my children. Our daughter is looking at an ereader. She has always been our reader. She enjoys a good book. Now technology is such that it is easier then ever to carry that book with you. Finding a book is quick also. What a great way to take a variety of books along with you to read on the go. Technology is wonderful!

What a Blessing!

Oh what a blessing! Our 5th grandchild was born on Sunday. His name is Caysen Reed Gaskill! He weighed 7 lbs 1 oz and was 20 inches long. He looks somewhat like his brother Kaden. What a sweetie.... :) We are blessed.... We are both trying to do all we can to help them out at home with the older children. When you have a c-section, you have to be especially careful and cannot do many things. So it is a blessing to us to be able to help them out in any way we can.

New Baby Boy

This is our new baby grandson. This makes 5 grandchildren for us in the last 4 years. We love being grandparents. They are so much fun. This little one has a sister 4 years old and a brother who will be 2 tomorrow. They are so excited to have their little brother at home. I think he will probably get to come home tomorrow. That will be great to have them home before Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for.

Los Angeles furniture stores

A few years back I began watching HGTV. I love to get new ideas for our home. Whether its paint, flooring or decor, I found a lot of new things to try. With los angeles furniture stores, a person can find just about anything they are looking for. Furniture can make such a neat statement as well.

Nursing uniforms

For many years I have worked in the medical profession. We are required to wear nursing uniforms and white shoes. I really don't mind it because it makes it easy to get ready in the morning. I usually know what I'm to wear that day. My husband had to wear a uniform for many years, so we both knew what to expect each day.

Fall Fun!

Our grandson Emry was sure enjoying the leaves that had fallen. What a great time of year to play outdoors!

Pennoyer v. Neff

It will be so neat to have a new baby to cuddle again. We are so excited!!!

Bellaire Junk Removal

It is quite a problem when you build on to your home or make some major changes and you have so much construction materials left over. It is impossible to live in a home for very long without accumulating things such as old furniture, old mattresses, and even stools and vanities. Yes, the town garbage will pick up quite a bit of stuff but they do not pick up this type of junk. In our town they will pick up some large items once a year but it costs you for that too. So why not call the professionals at a place such as Bellaire junk removal to do the job for you. They will haul away anything that you have and if needed will come right in and clear out your home of everything you want to get rid of and dispose of it responsibly. They will give you an upfront cost so you will not be taken by surprise and set up a time that is most convenient for you. I know too that it is hard to get rid of old computers and monitors and they will take them too. Do you have lots of yard waste from the cleanup of leaves and trimming off bushes and flowers? They will haul that for you too. I think it would be hard to find something that they would not haul away because they do it all for you. Just call their 800 number and set it up.

Plus Size Clothing

My Mom is a plus size and she has all kinds of trouble trying to get clothes that fit her. They are either too big or too small so she has been shopping the Internet to find dresses that are fashionable and stylish and will show off her plus size figure to her advantage. It is tough when you go uptown and try on many clothes and find they are all ugly looking on you. That is why she was so happy to find beautiful plus size clothing at this website. She can shop in the privacy of her own home and there is free shipping all the time. Not only that but they will send her a 40% off coupon if she signs up for their emails. By doing this, she finds out the very latest fashions and not only that, but their prices are also the lowest she has found. She is able to save a great deal of money, not only on her purchases, but on gas running 30 miles to the nearest big town to fight the crowds and shop, only to be disappointed because she can't find anything that fits and looks good. It has been very exciting for her to find a place where she can get colorful, stylish and fashionable clothes to fit her all in one place.

Cryogenic Equipment

Cryogenics is certainly a very interesting subject. I remember first hearing about it a number of years ago. They were discussing the possibility of preserving humans until a cure could be found for the disease that killed them. I know it has not advanced that far, however, today sperm, embryos and cord blood are some of the things that have been stored. It is exceptionally important that the cryogenic equipment being used to store cells, for example, have perfect temperature control. Anything that is preserved in this fashion must be kept at the exact temperature and it is extremely important to have a backup alarm system to let those in charge know if there is a problem or any variation. A company who furnishes this type of equipment must be able to install, service and maintain it with unsurpassed expertise. With 20 years of experience and expertise, this company is the major choice of pharmaceutical labs, research universities and institutions. Cryogenics has come along ways in the last 20 years and it is imperative that all equipment be functioning at its highest levels and standards. There is no room for error when you are dealing with such delicate products and you need a company who can truly back you up with the finest service.

Plus Size Dress

I am definitely a plus size and it is very difficult for me to find attractive dresses that make me look great. I spend a lot of time in stores looking for a pretty and stylish plus size dress especially for special occasions. The Holiday season is upon us and there will be all kinds of dinners and parties to celebrate the Holidays. And, of course, I want something extra special for New Years Eve. In searching around the Internet, I found that there are many beautiful, stylish plus size dresses that I just love. I can choose colors to go with the season, such as a beautiful red suit or dress. There are many new styles now to choose from and you do not have to be a size 5 to be able to buy dresses that will make you look outstanding. I want my friend's heads to turn when I walk in the room. I hope to shine like a star in my new dress that I purchased on the Internet. And I didn't have to go out and fight the Holiday crowds to shop and shop to find that I could not find anything I liked. I can save a lot of gas and shop in the comfort of my own home and know that I am getting beautiful plus size clothes that will enable me to look my very best.

Turkey Trot

Posted by Heriberto Fuentes

Last year, I started somewhat of a Thanksgiving tradition; at least I would like for it to become one. Most cities host a Thanksgiving Day road race that varies in distance. My city’s is called the Turkey Trot and it is an 8k, which is about 5 miles. I found out about the race through an email I received while I was checking out This all started last year because it made me feel better about eating all of that good food if I woke up and ran first. Since it’s much easier to run with a group of people, this was the perfect solution. An added bonus is that it decreased the time I had to spend at my boyfriend’s mother’s house for Thanksgiving. I guess I started this tradition with my friend Erin, who ran it with me last year and is doing the same this year. She doesn’t have to travel for Thanksgiving, so it’s a no brainer for her. I wasn’t sure if my mom would go for me arriving midday, but surprisingly she did.

Spider Veins

I did know that I had varicose veins. However, I did not realize all the problems they can cause. Also I did not know that many of the very symptoms I have are probably caused by my varicose veins, even though they are not visible to the naked eye. I always thought varicose veins were the unsightly huge bumps I saw on many other women's legs. Having spider veins, I was surprised to learn they were one of the many causes from my varicose veins and that this was actually a vein disease. I have worn special stockings for years because of muscle cramps and aching legs and knew that my sedentary desk job helped the vein disease along. I knew people who had the veins stripped and some with bad results. I even asked my doctor why my legs felt tired and heavy, only to be given very little information about varicose veins as a cause. I have heard of the new methods they have now of closing these veins without removing them and that sounds very good to me. If I could have this done and improve the circulation and do away with many of my symptoms, I would be quite happy. I need to look into this further.

We're so excited! We are going to have another grand child very soon. My daughter is due in less then 3 weeks. She's ready too. It's always fun to throw a party. They have great baby shower brownie pops that would be fun to have. There are so many cute ideas a person can do for a shower. I've seen the diaper cakes. They are darling. I'm sure it will be fun!

We have been busy Christmas shopping already. There is so much to get done around this time of year. It sure is nice to have the internet now. It can ease the pain of time and money spent. A person can click in and do some shopping and grab sales at the same time, without ever leaving the comfort of home. What a life huh?
At a person can find a kayak lift system for the men in your life. Even a woman may find this handy if she is doing it on her own. What an awesome package!

Watching the Grandkids

Our daughter had a doctor's appointment so I went over and stayed with the grandchildren. They are so full of energy and a real challenge to keep up with. It is too difficult to take small children, ages 2 and 4 to the doctor's office for an OB checkup. Their Mom will be adding a 3rd child to the family in about 3 weeks so she has a checkup every week now. The kids love their Grammy and are always glad to have me stay with them or come to our house. And I love it too.

Online Mastering Studio

If you are in the music business and preparing songs professionally for sale on CD's or for MP3 playing, then you know how important it is to have your music mastered by a good professional online mastering studio. You want your music to be at its very best also when it is played on the radio or when it is downloaded. As a new client, how would you like a 100 percent free preview of your first song? They will work very closely with you to make sure that you get the exact sound you want.

It is a simple procedure once you set up an account with them. Check this out on their website.

In today's world, much emphasis is placed on anti-aging. A great deal of study and work has been put into stem cell research and it has been found that the placenta is indeed a most fertile place in which to retrieve stem cells. In reading about this on the Internet, I found that a company has produced MFIII of Switzerland which is an active substance that has been extracted and produced by a very delicate and specific method. This is available as a Stem Cell Therapy supplement which aims to wake up the old, dormant and malfunctioning cells and help rejuvenate the body. Sheep placenta work best because they are the most compatible with the body. As a nutritional supplement it is completely safe and you can even take your other vitamins along with it. You will gain pep and vigor as your body renews itself. They have 80 years of experience and knowledge behind them and you can rest assured their products are completely safe. Do not be fooled by others who may be trying to imitate their products because only MFIII of Switzerland methods have been tried, tested and proven to be the only true way to keep the cells in perfect condition to do the job for which they are intended.

Fall Fun

Our grandson Emry was having so much fun in all of the fallen leaves. Looks like they had a lot of them!


It has been a cold Fall and Winter is just around the corner. Now is the time to be thinking of warm clothing. It is also time to start Christmas shopping if you have not done so already. Every year one of the things I always like to get for my family is new underwear. Underwear seems to be the last thing that people think to buy for themselves. They will buy new jeans, slacks, shirts, jackets, gloves, boots, but underwear is the last thing they think of buying for themselves. To tell the truth, a great many people are running around in old worn out, tattered underwear but no one knows of course because it is not something that is seen from the outside. I think that is another reason people give it little thought. So I always feel a really good gift is to get everyone new underwear as a present and if you search the Internet, you can find really neat buys for both girls and guys. Not only that but you can use a coupon code and save quite a lot more on your purchase if you shop online before October 31, 2011. They have fabulous colors and styles for everyone and this is a gift every single person in your family will appreciate. I just find out their sizes and the styles they like and order from there. They are always pleased with the fine underwear I purchase for them.


Our son and his wife were going to be taking our grandsons out for halloween. We gave them a call to see if we could join them. They thought that would be a great idea. We went to their church for trunk or treat and supper. Then went into town for trick or treating. It was a lot of fun. Emry loved being a magician and Israel an astronaut!

Nursing Pins

When working in the profession of your choice, you have put a great deal of study into it in the past in order to obtain the position you chose. You studied hard and put in many long tedious hours so that you could finally reach your goal. Being a professional in the field of nursing is definitely a most challenging and rewarding position to be in. It is with great pride that you wear your uniform and you proudly were part of the graduating group who received their nursing pins. There are a great many types, colors and designs of pins for nurses. It all depends on the field in which they have chosen to work. By recognizing their efforts and positions in the nursing field, it gives them a good feeling and even more incentive to do the very best job they can. They can wear their pins with great pride and self assurance that they are recognized as special people in the world of medicine. We all know how important nurses are in our lives and I know that I, for one, always notice the pins that the nurse if wearing that is helping me at the clinic or hospital. You can tell that they take pride in displaying their nursing pins for all to see.

grow longer eyelashes

Have you seen the commercials about growing your eyelashes longer. A person can now have thicker longer lashes in no time it sounds like with grow longer eyelashes As we grow older sometimes we find our lashes are becoming thinner and more sparse. It's good to know there are products on the market to help with this issue.

Orthotist Jobs

With the economy in the shape that its in, many are unsure of their jobs and budgets. The internet has made it quicker and easier to find jobs such as Orthotist Jobs and others. With the click of the mouse you can see what types of jobs are available in your area. It can still be a challenge to get that position and with relocating possibly.

Court Reporting

Absolutely correct court reporting is essential in every case. It is always important when you are taking depositions, that you seek out an individual that is very experienced in court reporting and has the speed and accuracy needed to turn out the most perfect deposition possible. Therefore, employing a company that excels in providing this type of court reporter is of the utmost importance. I feel cases have been won and lost on the accuracy of the depositions taken by a court reporter. Therefore, in Texas, it is best to search out the best deposition services available. One that serves the major cities in Texas is important, as well. Court reporters have many licenses and nationally certified reporters will provide those legal transcription needs. If a court reporting firm has a solid reputation and is in good standing with a great many people in the legal field, that will enable you to be much more confident in choosing a court reporter recommended by their firm. This firm is ready to support your needs not only in Texas, but nationally and internationally. It is easy to schedule depositions by calling their 800 number or fill out their online deposition scheduling form. Their expert team is ready to help you at any time and also with litigation services too.

Best tablet

It can be difficult to keep up on all of the technology changes. There is something new coming out on the market everyday it seems! The men in my family absolutely love all of it! They are into all of the latest. I'm sure they have researched the Best tablet a person can purchase or even the newest phones. They usually talk me into a new cell phone at least once a year. :)

Medical step stool

I think I am getting shorter. It seems that I have a tough time reaching those higher cupboards, shelves and tops of appliances. A medical step stool sure does come in handy. A person wants to be careful to not slip and fall. There are so many occasions to have one. Even my grandchildren can use them.


I was off of work for several weeks. The time went so fast! Over the past 5 or so weeks we have been packing and moving after 28 years. My dad also passed away during this time. I wasn't really ready to go back to work, but it was time. You sure find out during difficult times who really cares about you and who only cares about themselves. That's ok because God never fails me. PTL!
There is still a lot to do. But, it will all get done.

Walden University

As children grow up and graduate from high school, they often are unsure of the path that they will take. Many head off to college and begin to experiment with what interests they may have. Often they find themselves changing career paths several times through out the following years.
Now a person can learn about Walden University and all of their online programs. Having a full time job no longer has to stop a person from pursuing a college degree. You can find with Walden University's online degree programs that there are many choices out there. This school offers degrees in Health, Management, Education and much more. can assist you in completing your dream! Many are receiving their degrees while continuing to work full time. It's great to know that a person can do that!

"I have been paid for this post. My opinion has not been swayed in anyway."


I'm finally able to start cooking again. We have been in the process of moving over the past month. Boy, what a lot of work. Now my kitchen is usable and I am enjoying home cooked meals. Eating out gets old!

Blue Sky Scrubs

I have been in the medical field for many years. When I first started out, we simply wore white. We even had the nurses cap. As long as we were in white, all was good. Then we went to wearing lab coats. It felt good to have something covering my other clothes. There are times that materials can splatter, so it was protective in a way.
Over the years things began to change and soon we found ourselves wearing scrubs. It sure makes getting ready in the mornings a much easier task. You always know what you'll be wearing. Thank goodness there are companies out there that can assist a person with what ever style or color they may be needing. Our office rotates colors during the week. We also add a new color every year or two. It's nice to have a change. Check out scrubs for yourself at .

"I have been paid for this post. My opinion has not been swayed in any way."


WOW! What a month we have had! After 28 years we have recently moved from our home. It was God lead that is for sure. We would have never guessed that we would move and especially away from the town we have been in since 1982. It feels good and it feels right. We're excited to see what the future holds!

Adirondack chairs

Summer is quickly fading and the joys of those months ht do too. We enjoy the great Adirondack chairs when relaxing outdoors on the deck or in the yard. They are a comfortable chair that is made of cedar, teak, mahogany and recycled plastic. These chairs add to a great look. What a great way to use recycled materials.
Picnic tables are also a must in those nice summer months. They can be used for many occasions. Whether in the park, at a playground or a campground, you will want to have a picnic table available. A person can find them in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit your need. They can be portable or you may want to mount them to the ground. It's wonderful to spend time outdoors with family and friends.
A park bench is also a nice added touch to any out door and even indoor areas in some situations. Have you ever been in the Mall and needed to take a rest? Those benches sure come in handy. Outdoors they are always a pleasant site. You can find these benches in many colors, shapes and sizes. Take your pick and dress up your area. Again they can be portable or mounted to the ground.
If you're looking for quality, then look no more. You can find it here!

Pack Pack Pack!

It has been a crazy month! We have sold our home after 28yrs and have purchased a new home being built, in a town nearby. It's exciting and somewhat over-whelming at the same time. We have filled four dumpsters in the process. Soon we'll be settled in!

Speaking dictionary and thesaurus

I love the computer world. Once in a while I have to do something on the type writer. WOW, talk about an antique. I am so much faster on the computer. You can even find a speaking dictionary and thesaurus. You can't beat that. There is no excuse for poor grammar any longer.

Victoria’s Secret coupons

When I am out shopping I love having coupons to use with a purchase. I often find outdated ones in my purse also. With the victoria’s secret coupons I am able to save money. That is always a welcomed site. They have so much to choose from.

New House

Some friends of ours plan on buying a new house. We have seen it inside and out even though it hasn't been completed yet. I am sure it will make a very nice home for them. It isn't a huge house but they really don't need it to be. I look forward to our friends getting in to the new house and having us over for a meal.

Introducing my boyfriend to Boardwalk Empire before the new season

Guest post written by Jennifer Cox

I can guarantee that if my boyfriend dislikes something, he'll be a terror to sit through it with. For example, he really hates some of the reality shoes that I love to watch and will refuse to hush while they're on. It's really annoying and I try to persuade him from doing that. But when it comes to my favorite scripted TV shows, I threaten to break up with him if he interferes with those.
I told him though that there was no way he was going to like that when it came to watching the new season of Boardwalk Empire. It was my new favorite show of last year and you simply don't mess with that. While I was online looking up some info on rewatching the first season, I ran across some info on mobile broadband internet providers. After I looked through it a little bit I decided to change over our home internet access to one of them.

I think that I actually have him looking forward to the Boardwalk Empire new season. I've made him watch a few episodes from the first season and he's definitely enticed.

You Never Know

In today's world, you never know what is going to happen. There are strange weather events and of course always the risk of some terrorist attack. We definitely can't live our lives in fear but we should be smart. Living in the mid-west, there are always the chances for strange weather! Thankfully we have basements on most homes in Iowa but underground shelters are always another thought. I remember when my kids were young and I was home alone with them, there was a tornado. I had to get into a shelter that was not connected to our home. I still remember that day like it was yesterday!

Sweet Corn

We have had some of the best sweet corn ever this year. It has come from different sources too. Hopefully we have enough to freeze for the months to come. The flavor has been great and the corn is very juicy. My family loves good corn and we have had it this year. When we freeze corn we expect it to last throughout several months but it usually doesn't. We tend to grab some from the freezer many times a week and before we know it, the corn is gone.

Our daughter and family have been trying to sell their home for almost two years now. Recently prayers were answered! A buyer came in and in one showing she bought their home!

xbox 360 hdmi cable

Throughout the years my son's have enjoyed different game units. The one son loves the xbox. He shops and buys the latest games and equipment. I guess a person needs the xbox 360 hdmi cable to make things run the way you want them too. I don't understand all of this modern technology. If I have questions I ask one of the kids. :)


Don't you just want life to slow down sometimes? Relax and smell the roses. Or maybe the apple blossoms. :) This is a peaceful place found on my son's farm. I love to lay out there when we go to visit.

Kitchen Curtains

We are considering a move. It's exciting to think about, but can be a cause for a lot of work. I think we may be up for the challenge. My daughter is going through the process right now. There are so many changes.

Anyone that knows me very well, knows that I have a problem with wasps! They are my enemy in the summer time. They are the first thing I think about when I walk outdoors. How sad is that. Now there seems to be a new breed of them around this summer. They are much bigger and faster. Very ugly! Yikes!

Flower Delivery

Celebrating special occasions can be so much fun. What ever the occasion it may call for a flower delivery. Nothing sets off a party like flower decor. Generally the gift of flowers can make a woman feel special and loved. It is a a gift that is beautiful and leaves a lovely fragrance in the air. What can a person say of flowers except something positive. It can set the atmosphere for a wedding or play a part in a marriage proposal. Perhaps they are sent to brighten ones day as they sit in a hospital bed. They could be sent as a memorial for that friend or family member that has recently passed. There are many occasions for a flower delivery in a person's life.

Isn't summer wonderful for food? It's a great time for awesome salads, grilling and fruit. I got some freshly picked sweet corn yesterday. My husband and I agreed that it had to be the best corn we've ever eaten! It was amazing!! So sweet and perfectly aged. We'll take some to the kids this weekend. :)

Actos lawsuit

It seems the danger that many of these drug companies have is that while their research leads to some breakthroughs in cures for serious diseases, they also carry a high risk for causing other serious illnesses. Unfortunately, these side effects aren't typically known until the drug has already been in production and effected many people. Recently, the oral diabetes drug, Actos, was found to have done just this. It is also called ActoplusMet, Competact and Duetact and is linked to heart attacks, heart failure and increased risk of bladder cancer. Not things to be taken lightly. These could result in Actos lawsuits. The chemical name of Actos is Pioglitazone, so take note and inform others.

Pool Time!

With it being so hot and humid lately, Grammy and the grand kids decided to cool off! We had fun out in the pool in our back yard. The kids were jumping and screaming. They all loved it!


We went with our family to a local parade recently. Boy, was it ever hot and humid. While trying to take some photos we found it difficult to keep the lens from fogging up. I did get some with out the moisture.

Multaq lawsuit

Did anyone else run across the information that the Food & Drug Administration recently released, in reference to the medicine Multaq? I know they release a lot of information and it is unlikely, unless you were one of the healthcare professionals that received the information on January 4, 2011, that anyone saw the information. But, man is it important. The drug Multaq has been connected with rare cases of liver damage. If you don't know what symptoms of liver damage are, take note. They can include stomach pain, weakness, shortness of breath, redness, difficulty breathing, rashes, diarrhea, rapid weight gain, and slowed heartbeat. This information could likely lead to many Multaq lawsuits. If you or anyone you know has taken this drug, it would be a good idea to keep them informed on the findings.

The grand kids were all over recently. They have so much fun together! Israel loved this mailbox. He would sort the mail, put them in the correct openings and sometimes not. hehehe... He was having a great time!

There are those people that love to golf, those that enjoy the game but are not fanatic about it and those that don't understand why anyone would want to play the game. That is just my opinion of course. My husband is on the side of loving golf. He would go play every day if he could.
He has only had three sets of clubs in his life. He claims that his current set is better because they are a name brand. His other clubs had actually been made by a friend. He calls them knock off clubs because they resemble name brand but have a different name on them. I really don't know if it makes his golfing any better by using a club with a certain name on them. Does the ball really care what is hitting it? There are a lot of neat accessories out there on the market also.
I am sure you can tell which group I am in. You are right if you said the one that enjoys golf but isn't a fanatic. For those that are enthusiastic about golf, good for you. I am sure there are worse things to occupy ones time than golf.

Hawaii Real Estate

Now that we are growing older we are beginning to think about our retirement years. Where will we live and what will we do? There are many who decide much younger that they want to make an investment in a dream home.

A face of joy!

We began our weekend meeting our son's and family at Whiskey Creek. Yum! Then on Sat. morning we headed out to the Puckerbrush parade! The grand kids loved it, but it was very warm out. Heading up town we found something to eat and watched Josh and Diana painting faces and making balloon animals. Kaelyn had a face of joy showing off her newly painted face by Aunt Di! To cool off we headed home to play in the pool and sprinklers. This is Emry's face of joy! So sweet to see how happy they were.... The cousins had so much fun together. We grilled out and decided that the mosquitoes were so bad that we would skip the fireworks. Off to church in the morning and caught a nap in the afternoon. Then enjoyed a supper with ham roast, cheesy potatoes and corn on the cob! We also had birthday cake. It was Bill's birthday also! What an awesome weekend and great to have everyone home!

Summer with water sprinklers

Guest post written by Ricky Douglas

Summer has been my favorite season of the year for all of my life. I've always been someone who's loved being outdoors and doing active things. It's just much easier to do most of my favorite activities during the summer that way. I've tried to raise my family too. When my grandkids come and visit us during the summer, they know for sure that grandpa is up for taking them on just about any kind of outdoor adventure that they'd like to try.

One thing though that I wanted to do was come up with some fun outdoor things that we could do just at the house. While I was looking that up, I saw the site Once I read through it some I thought that maybe it was about time to actually get hearing aids like I've been thinking about doing for a while now, so I set up a hearing aid test to see if I need them.

I got the idea to buy a summer water sprinkler and have a little fun in it with the grandkids. Sometimes the most fun are the simplest things.

Do you own an iPod? We are on our second one. The first one was not the newest model so we upgraded. There are a few features that the newer iPod has that weren't included in the old one. One that is really fun to use is the facetime feature. It allows you to make calls to an iPhone or another iPod for free using video. How cool is that? We are totally enjoying it.

LCD tvs

I spent the weekend with my twin sister! We always have the best time! We talk and catch up on all that's been going on. We went shopping all day on Saturday in the big city. My oldest brother has moved down there so we surprised them and stopped in. They have moved into a beautiful new home. As we walked through they had purchased new LCD tvs for many of the rooms. They really looked nice.

Jake and Nee

My son and his girlfriend enjoyed the farm. We all went out for the weekend to our oldest son's acreage. We had a great time together!

Blue Sky Scrubs

After working in a dental office for many years, I have seen a lot of changes. Technology has progressed as well as our uniforms. We started out wearing strictly white. Then we wore a white or blue lab coat with white slacks.
It has been in discussion lately as to what new and discounted scrubs we might find. We have continued wearing some of the same colors for a few years now. Some are wanting to change to brighter colors and some feel we are in need of prints. What ever is chosen, it's great to have websites like to shop at. We'll have to see what we come up with.

Casey Anthony Trial

Many people have been watching the Casey Anthony criminal trial on television. Do you really think it is necessary to have the trial televised like it has been? Depending on who you talk to you will get different responses. Whatever happened to little Caylee could remain a mystery. It is a sad situation.

Crowd Control

Have you ever been at a sporting event, concert or even a Fair where they have had to control the crowd in some fashion? Well, recently my daughter-in-law, my grandsons and I were at a County Fair. They have what they call a Scramble, where the little kids run and scramble to grab a bunny. If they get one then they can keep it. The crowd was great and the people were shoving to get towards the front. Some sort of Stanchions was needed in this case.
Crowd control is very important so that people are not falling and possibly being hurt in the process. At concerts and sporting events you can find the same sort of problem arise. With barricades in place, they can shuffle the crowd in a certain direction, causing order and an even flow of traffic.
Airports also use some of these technique when forming lines throughout check-in. A velvet rope or barricades are often used there. It's important to have order for the well-being of everyone.

New Phone

Recently my husband got a new cell phone. It is a Blackberry Bold. It has so many features that his old one didn't have that it is taking time to figure the thing out. I looked at it and wasn't real keen on the little keys. I am sure when you get used to them they aren't too bad. I hope he likes it.


We all want to feel secure. Our homes are our safe haven. Many years ago most people didn't even bother to lock their door. Up until just a few years ago I didn't think to lock my car doors when leaving it set. Then one day I walked out of work, in broad daylight, only to find that someone had broken into my vehicle. Needless to say, I now lock up my car when leaving it.
When looking into home security barling, AZ, it is important to know what your needs may be. Are you thinking about an alarm system or maybe it's a carbon monoxide detection unit. What ever it may be, they can assist you with your concerns.
We will often leave our TV on when leaving our home. Not only for our dog's entertainment, but also a security measure. With Direct TV it is always working. Check this out for yourself.

Barcode scanners

It's that time of year when we often enjoy shopping for new summer items. Whether it's for our home or something new to wear, we always have a good time. I like how they now have the barcode scanners so you can check the price on an item. It's convenient and easy to check out sale prices.

Rifle scope

For many years now my husband has been in Law Enforcement. He has had a lot of gear. Along with his rifle, rifle scope, pistol, ammunition,handcuffs, uniform etc... he has a lot of gear in his vehicle also. It has been a great career for him and soon he will be considering retirement. That will sure be different.

RV Loans

We have lived in a community that has a motorhome plant. It is large and employees many. I'm not sure if you can go directly through them for rv loans. Or if you have to go through a bank. They seem to do a thriving business and have held their own through the wavering economy.

Grand daughters!

I have so much fun with my grand daughter. We loved sitting out in the flower garden eating our homemade ice cream. I spent a day with her at the public pool also. She said " You're the best grammy".... Awwww..... Melt my heart..........

Barking Dogs

Our neighbor has a dog that barks what seems to be all of the time. They keep it in a kennel. I have never seen it out of the kennel which I don't understand. I think they should let the dog out and take it for walks. It appears to be a friendly dog but I am not sure. Our dog doesn't get the walks she needs all of the time but she does get out some times.

Cohiba cigars

When I was younger, my dad enjoyed smoking. He would roll his own cigarettes. He also enjoyed good cohiba cigars or a pipe now and again. He started out smoking as a child. He is now 82 years old and still enjoys smoking. We had unique ashtrays around our home. I can remember a standing one that always set by his chair.

My husband has an iPod and an iPad. I don't know much about either device but I know that he has purchased some music from iTunes for them. It seems to work pretty nicely. I bought him some iTunes cards to make some purchases. He had used a credit card to buy songs but now only uses the iTunes cards. They are a wonderful idea for gifts too.

Rechargeable Cigarette

For many years my dad has smoked. Growing up I can recall him smoking cigarettes, cigars and even a pipe. He liked to try different things. That type of smoking can leave somewhat of a mess. Now with Blu Cigs it has been made convenient and easier. They have come out with new flavors. They have a cartridge and battery. You can purchase them with a 1 year warranty and 30 day money- back guarantee as well. So if not completed satisfied, you are covered. Some have said Blu Cigs look, feel and taste like a real cigarette. For those who enjoy smoking, you may want to check this out.

New Gun Law

It sounds like many states have changed their gun laws to allow people to carry either open or concealed. In Iowa the law has changed to allow the carry of even shotguns, rifles and switchblades. I don't know if I am a big fan of the changes made, or at least some of them. Like some say, the criminals will always carry even though it may be illegal for them to do it.

Springfield beauty school

Change In Weather

We have gone from cold to hot then back to the colder side as of late. I know that summer weather can be unpredictable and I realize there will be changes day by day but some of the changes have been huge. I always say that I prefer warm weather over winter. The cold and snow just don't appeal to me like when I was a child.

Construction Jobs

Well, it's that time of year. Seems more people are interested in remodeling and working on their homes. It's a great thing for people in the construction jobs. It keeps them all pretty busy which is a plus. Homes seem to be selling and the economy is on the upswing. We want to see progress.

Ability To Sing

Some have it and some don't. Singing ability is what I am talking about. I can sing fairly well in a group. My husband says he can too, if the group is big enough. I am so impressed with those that can sing, seemingly with no effort at all. There are those that aren't old enough to have had serious singing lessons and I am really in awe of them. Recently, Scotty McCreery was named as the American Idol. He is only 17 years old. Wow.

Topamax lawsuit

For many years I have struggled with migraines. I began to doctor for them and was put on a medication called Topamax. At the time I didn't realize there were concerns with this drug. I began to lose my hair and was soon taken off of the drug. Now there is a Topamax lawsuit in the works. They are claiming that Topamax a anti-convulsant drug may cause birth defects such as cleft palate and cleft lip. This condition causes the palate to fail to completely fuse together. The O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath attorney firm understands this case and can assist in the process.

Let It Rain

I am hoping we will get a little rain soon. It was pretty hot and windy this week so some rain would be nice. Areas around us have actually received too much rain so I guess we have it pretty good. My husband is good at keeping the yard in great shape. I remember mowing the yard but that was years ago. Thankfully!

Sand/Water Table

We were out on my son's farm for Memorial Day. It was so much fun. The grandkids loved the sand/water table that they had out there. Kaden just kept playing in the water. Between that, the chickens, kitties, sprinklers, hammock, rides in a wagon on the John Deere and more, the kids were quite entertained.

Topamax Birth Defects Lawyer

For many years now I have suffered with migraines. After doctoring for them, I was put on a drug called Topamax. It was to help stop the migraine from coming. Well, soon I found that I was losing my hair due to using this drug. Now I am reading more about some of the very serious side effects this drug may cause. A Topamax Birth Defects Lawyer can better inform you of the details. It may cause birth defects such as cleft palate or cleft lip. With this you may find problems with eating and communicating. If you have taken this medication you may want to research it further.

All Of A Sudden

It seems like all of a sudden the grass is green and trees have little buds. The past couple months have gone by very quickly. This is a great time of year. We see the little birds and rabbits in the yard. We have had welcome rains that make things clean. We enjoy sitting out on the deck when the weather allows, and it has been a great spring for that.

Free Online Dating

Boy, the times have sure changed. With technology advancing as it has, it has really changed the way we do and look at things. Now a days it isn't unusual to hear that someone has met their spouse or significant other on line. With all of the free online dating sites now, it seems to be a great way to meet people. Our oldest son met a gal on line and she is now a long life friend of the family. :)


Having grandkids is a wonderful thing. We currently have four but will have a fifth grandbaby by the end of the year. I love snuggling with a baby. They smell so nice and are just a joy to hold. They depend on you for almost everything and put their trust in you. God totally knows what He is doing!

Austin personal injury attorney

Iwent through a time when I was doctoring for migraines. They are a horrible condition to deal with. My doctor then started me on the drug, Topamax. I felt at the time that it may be a fairly serious drug. I had to slowly go on it and slowly ween off of them. After losing much of my hair, it was decided that I should go off of the drug.
Topamax is an anti-convulsant medicine used many time for treatment of epileptic seizures. They are now finding that it may also lead to birth defects and other conditions. How sad to think that something that was made to hopefully help someone can also hurt someone.

Still My Sweetheart!

After 34 years he's still my sweetheart... It's great to be married to your best friend! I'm very blessed.

My daughter changes her mind

I appreciate the guest post, Lindsay Valdez

Last year my daughter decided she was really into running. We went out and bought all the latest running equipment and spent hundreds of dollars on shoes, tech gear, water bottles, you name it. She was really good for a while, and then she lost all interest. This year, she’s just as into soccer as she was running. I can’t say I’m not skeptical that her devotion to the sport will last but I suppose only time will tell. This time around I’ve got clear so I order most of her soccer supplies from clearance sales online. She complains that her stuff’! s not the same as everyone else's but I can’t be footing the bill for her just to change her mind again! She’s actually really good at soccer thanks to all her practice running, so maybe this one will stick. It’s a sport her school is really big on so maybe once she sees how much fun it is to be a varsity athlete she’ll stick it out till the end of school?

Fun in the sun!!

We had such a great time on vacation! This is us in St Maarten at Great Bay Beach. The water was so beautiful!

Wooden Swing Sets

My oldest son and his family recently bought and moved onto an acreage. They are loving it. Now they are busy putting up a wooden swing set that they were given. It looks like it will be solid and nice for the kids. My daughter is now shopping for wooden swing sets. She thinks her children might enjoy that also.


We recently went on a cruise. It was a great vacation. I would highly recommend a cruise to anyone. There was so much food on the ship. Fortunately we did a lot of walking on board to work the food off!! We saw several shows while on the ship and there were great beaches at each port. If you have never been on a cruise, I would suggest that you consider it.
This is us in St Thomas. We were looking down at Megan's Bay!

Have you heard of Facetime? It is very cool. The program or application (or whatever it is) comes on the new iphone. It is also on my husband's new ipod. It allows you to video chat. We haven't used it much yet but the times we have it has worked great. There is so much new technology that it is hard to keep up with.

Grand kids

For those of you who don't have grand kids, they are wonderful. For those of you who do have grand kids, you know they are wonderful. We love ours very much. They are such a joy to be around. They are so innocent and sweet. It makes me feel so good when they come up and give hugs and tell me how much they love me. They are awesome.

Swarovski Crystal beads

WOW! Do you remember when making bead bracelets and necklaces where the rave? When my daughter was young she loved to do that. The beads were colorful and simple. Now there are many choices out there. The Swarovski Crystal beads, toho beads, pearls, stones cut into shapes and much more. It's fun to create your own masterpiece!


Over the past three years we have been trying to redo and update our home. Room by room we have changed out lighting,hardware,flooring,painted and furnishings. It's been fun! We have looked into modern furniture such as Zuo and other companies. The choices out there are amazing!


I have wondered what I'd do without my DVR. It is so handy to have. I love being able to zip through commercials and focus on my shows. There have been a few times when the DVR wasn't working properly and I about freaked out. I have grown accustomed to having it and don't want to be without. If you don't have one, get one. I don't think you will regret it.

Personalized baseball bats

My oldest son is so into sports. He has been since he was quite young. I recently saw personalized baseball bats. He would have loved a gift like that! How great! You could have the team put on there or even a year and championship. Forever you can have this keepsake to remind you of wonderful times.

HTC accessories

My youngest son and son-in-law are very much into technology. They both worked for cell phone companies at one time. They love to look into the latest HTC accessories and anything else that may come along with a cell phone. They are usually trying to talk me into purchasing something new and different.

I recently bought a Blackberry phone. It took a little while to get used to it but I now enjoy it. There are times when I miss my old phone but all in all I like my Blackberry. The keys are a bit small but even those I have gotten used to. There are so many more functions with cell phones today. Our first one was a flip type phone and we had 30 minutes for the month. It cost $19.95 per month. Can you believe it? Needless to say, we only used it when necessary.

Topamax lawsuit

Have you heard of the drug Topamax? It is commonly used as an Anti-convulsant drug to treat epileptic seizures in children and adults. It can also be used in helping prevent migraines for some.

Yard Work

I know it is early in the year but we want to get out and do some yard work. You know, raking and putting down some weed killer. Not that I enjoy raking but it is something that should be done. When finished the yard looks great. I love the fresh cut lawn look. It won't be long and the snow will be gone and we can get out in the yard.

Book Reading

I know there are many people that enjoy reading books. More and more are reading online or ebooks. The ebooks are nice because they don't take up much room. They are very handy little things. We have lots of paperback and hard bound books at home but having the ebooks is great.

Topamax lawsuit

I was interested in reading about the Topamax lawsuit. For years I have been a migraine sufferer. It is not much fun to deal with this condition. Doctors had put me on Topamax to help prevent the migraines. It didn't seem to work for me so was taken off of this medication. It is also used as an anti-convulsant in treatment of epileptic seizures in children and adults. They now feel it may result in cleft lip or cleft palate. This birth defect can occur when the lip or palate fail to completely fuse together. The result is then a small notched lip or can also leave an open groove that extends from the roof of the mouth to the nose.
The law firm of O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath can assist you with a liability claim. They and their highly trained staff understand that there are dangerous side effects with Topamax and that your child's injuries may be the result of that drug.

New Ipad

Are the new iPads much different from the first version? I heard they are faster and the do have two cameras but are they worth buying if you already have the previous model? That is what my husband is wondering. He has the original iPad and likes it a lot but wouldn't mind having the new one. I know that it is very difficult to keep up with the latest technology because you can be sure that another version will come out fairly soon.

I have worked in the medical field for most of my adult life. My husband and I both have enjoyed having careers where we can wear a uniform to work. It sure makes it easier in the mornings when getting ready.
Our office has a system where we have so many different choices and wear them on certain days. So we all have the same uniform on and it's not so confusing. Blueskyscrubs has quite the variety of scrubs to chose from. We're always looking for discount medical scrubs. Who doesn't want to save some money?
They not only have them for women but also have scrubs for men. Our Doctors can shop there also if they so chose too. It's so nice to have a vast variety. When we are shopping for hospital scrubs, there are many of us and we all have different ideas of what we should purchase. I'm thankful for places like BlueSkyScrubs!

Easter Came Early

Easter came early for our grandchildren. They didn't mind. :)


With living where we do and having a basement, we have found that humidifiers are a must. They help to keep our downstairs dry. There is no longer a musty smell or a feeling of moisture in the air. They are a lifesaver. We have only ever had to purchase two throughout our thirty years in this home. They tend to last and last. What a wise investment.

A couple of years ago we decided to look into our home and auto insurance. We were trying to pinch pennies like so many others. It's a smart move as we soon found out. In looking into sites such as and others we found that we may have been over paying each year. We ended up saving ourselves over $500 a year in insurance premiums. Boy, you can't beat that!

New Car

It may seem weird but we have never owned a brand new car. We have had several great used vehicles but not one new one. The warranty with a new car would be nice but the fact remains that we have gotten by all these years without buying one. Maybe some day we will get one. I guess we will have to see. For those that enjoy buying new cars, good for you.

Modern Furniture

Over the past few years we have been redoing our home. With that has come many changes from modern furniture to wall color. It has been fun to watch the transformation. We are pleased with the outcome. It feels warm and homey. I love the earth tones. The tans, sage green and brick red all compliment each other. The newer styles of light fixtures are fun too!

School Backpack

Well, the school year is soon coming to an end once again. Boy, do they speed by. In the fall comes new clothes, supplies and a school backpack of course. By now most of those items are looking pretty shot. I remember my children loving the beginning of the school year. It was always great to get new things.

Small Business Phone System

Whether you are starting up a new business or presently are running a business, you know the details involved in keeping it going. When our office first opened we had many decisions to make. What kind of small business phone system should we purchase? That was only one of our concerns. It would have to accommodate many different areas. Also, would have to talk on one line while not interrupting another. There we several concerns. A person doesn't really think about it until you are in the midst of those decisions.

American Idol

Many people are watching the American Idol show. We have been too but last night our DVR didn't record it. We happened to turn on the television just as the show was ending. It was kind of a bummer. We have our favorites just like others do. It does seem like this year there are more great singers than in past years. You just never know who will take the gold!!

Brownie Pops

Have you seen the new cake pops and Brownie Pops? They are so cute and what a unique idea. I have seen them in many different looks. A person can use them for a party or maybe a family get-together. I've heard that they are quite tasty as well. They would be fun at a party.

Split heart keychain

Do you have a special occasion coming and you're not sure what to buy? I am always looking for great new ideas. I saw a neat split heart keychain. Something a person can share with a loved one. What a neat idea. It was reasonable and attractive. I'll have to keep that in mind.

Chocolate gift basket

When you have that special occasion or reason for a neat gift, sweets are always a great thing. I think there are such neat gift ideas out there these days. A person can purchase a beautiful chocolate gift basket and surprise that someone special. It's a unique and wonderful creation. Mother's Day is just around the corner.
