Favorites and their wonders

To the parents... as you go out to the store to blindly pick out possible new movies for your children not knowing how good or how bad they'll be not to mention the twenty extra dollars that you waste on the purchase. Make a list of your childhood memories, think back at how fantastic the Walt Disney movies were and still are incredible. Not to mention the exquisite depth and eye for detail that Walter Disney's crew had. Some of today's movies are great for special effect but you still can't beat some of the old time favorites.

The wonders of warranties

Thank goodness for warranties. We bought a PC to end hopefully all needs of buying another PC in the near future. It is a gateway quad ram. There's two 500 GB hard drives that equal a thousand GB together. There's a multi DVD burner with label flash technology. We have surge protectors on all of our electronics in the house but the only thing that a surge protector doesn't protect is the ground side protection. You wouldn't think that you would need to do anything to protect the ground side. If you know about electricity the ground is usually very invulnerable. We had a wind storm two weeks ago. A tree came down pushing a hot power wire onto the ground side turning the ground side of our power into two hundred volts frying our TV, our computer oh the list just goes on and on. Thank goodness for warranties and home owner insurance. We're covered on everything.

I'm waiting for winter Dad

It was really funny this morning. Our little one apparently had a bad sleep. Yesterday we were reminiscing of last winter and of course our little one was a whole year younger. This year is going to be so much more fun in the snow with him. He loves snow mobile. The only problem with him is he loves the speed too. Even on his little six volt four wheeler you make sure you put a helmet on. He likes to come down hills standing up and turning diagonally just before the bottom to make the back wheels spin. He seems to be a natural on balance. Getting back to him waking up this morning he sat up talk for a minute laid his head back down on a pillow and said to Dad. "Just one more minute Daddy I'm waiting for winter".!!!

Family Travel

With our limited space in our small truck, I always thought it would be nice to have a car seat that would double as a stroller because the stroller took up so much room when we were travelling. I was ecstatic when we finally found one at the BabySafeTravel.com. While we were there my husband picked out some really cool baby sunglasses for our son. We found a pair there that he actually keeps on because he loves them.

Splitting cherry trees : saving more buck

With the high cost of energy, saving every dime is important specially in New York State's cold winters. We have a wood stove. We have over fourty cherry trees on the property. They're huge over a hundred foot tall. My husband bought a chain saw and some wood splitting equipment. He then went out on a task of cutting the tree down. I help him split the wood and stack it. I tell you what it's a tremendous amount of work to save three hundred dollars on our gas bill a month but it is money to be saved. I just worry about him splitting the wood it just about kills him the cherry is very hard.

Portable external hard drive

Our PC just sloooooowed down. So my husband comes over and try to fix it by re-arranging programs on the hard drive. Then defragging things on the hard drive and then he noticed one little thing. I just recently downloaded a hundred sixteen pictures and four short movies so unless I remove some of that it wouldn't work very well. But he said "don't touch it I'll buy something on the way home to fix it". He came home with a two hundred fifty GB portable external hard drive that plugs right in to the USB and removed all the movies and half the pictures to this portable drive. So awesome! So much more power now.

Today's tension

Do you ever have too much stress? In today's world there seems to be an abundance of it from job pressures high climbing electric and gas bills, money shortages. Every little thing adds up. First time in thirty years my husband was laid off three weeks ago. He hasn't slept a night sense then. He's tried sleeping pills in the past but they all make his muscles or nerves twitch. So we went back to the drug store just to see if there was anything different on the market. He came up with a neat little pill the brand is called "calms forte sleep aid". It seems to be all homeopathic it doesn't knock him out all night but it gives him a solid five hours of sleep. It seems to really relax you. You be the judge. And of course with any medicine please ask your doctor before trying this if you have any doubts.

Office furniture

It took us a few years to get our business established. One of the main things that we think greatly improve are clientele. Anyhow, we came in one morning to our office. We started thinking about how changing paint color would greatly improve the place. Five days later the paint job had taken on a life of its own. We ended up completely renovating the office from changing the windows and the doors and finding a nice berber carpet. Finally at the end of five days we got it all back together. Talk about intense renovations. Then we took and put our old furniture back where it went. And I think we got depressed right at the same time. We looked at our budget after all the renovations. And decided we had enough money left over for beautiful new set of office furniture..

Boating safety measures

We decided to go on a short trip on the boat yesterday. The motor was running a little rough so my husband bought some spark plugs for it. After he put them in started it up it was running quite a bit better. We bought the boat used and it had old gas in the tank. My husband siphoned the old gas out but it still had some bad gas jelling inside the tank. The only way to get rid of the jell is to keep on running tankfuls of gas through it and changing the plugs and the gas filter periodically. So we did. We got out on the river a little ways down.

My husband opened the throttle up to try to make sure the engine was running smooth. The speed limit on the river is 8mph. We were going about 25mph. Around the corner we went and how do you figure this. The coast guard boat was sitting right there. They pulled us over for going too fast. My husband explained that we were only doing the speed for less than a minute just to clear the motor out. He even showed them the old plugs. They didn't give us a ticket but they took us through the whole boat safety check. Counting life jackets, checking our fire extinguisher, flares, and asking about our non-existing horn. ( hehe ).

Anyhow, we found out that we need a horn and our flares are outdated. They let us go. They took my husband's name hopefully they don't send us a ticket in the mail. Wow! That made this Saturday a little more interesting.

Bedroom Sets

I've almost waited two years after moving in to our new house. I thought we were going to get new furniture when we moved in to the place but with my husband's layoff we had to wait awhile. We thought our taxes were included in our monthly mortgage payment. We were wrong. So that took another four hundred dollars out of our pockets each month to keep caught up with the tax men. Finally, he is back to work and I'm on my search for designer bedroom set along with a new dining room set and hutch. It makes me a little sad that my old bed is an extra large wood framed king sized bed but in the new house really only a queen size fits the room its because of the over sized closet but I'm not parting with my large walk in closet for nothing. I have a shoe rack that you would not believe I can put over 30 pairs of shoes on this rack and its almost filled. Anyhow, the bed we picked out is so extravagant that I'm gonna change the color of the room to a lighter color to give a more positive negative highlight effect of the new bed and the beautiful quilts I picked out down in PA dutch country.

What a start to a day!

Did you ever notice in the morning when you get up? The patterns, the repetitions that you set its pretty dreary if you think about it. The alarm goes off, the blankets fly off, you stumble into the kitchen, put the coffee in the coffee maker push the PC button to start then go to the TV. Waiting for that last little noise of that coffee maker to stop to indicate that delicious smelling nectar of your life source (coffee). Once you sip that first sip its down the hatch. Then your belly starts churning and opps its off for the bathroom. (lol!) Daddy is in there. Knock! knock! knock! gotta go...gotta really go! And he is in there reading the paper. What the heck! At least I know when he is done with the sports section he'll be out, he finds me sitting next to the door legs crossed and crawling in. What a start to a day!
