Apple festival

We went to the apple festival last weekend it used to be so nice  to go and walk around and take the kids on the rides. This year everything seems to be so commercialized. They even put up signs blocking the side of the road so they could detour you to pay for parking. When we got to the rides for just three rides the two kids cost us 21 dollars. After that we went to get some fried pizza dough and even all the sodas were flat. We got our money back and went and bought some lemonade. I think the best part about the whole thing was the kids had fun.

Industrial supply

A friend of mine got tired of the everyday grind of going to work and just making your basic everyday income. It had been a while since I've seen him and when I did he started telling me about industrial supply that he was buying whole sale and selling it retail with a discount online from the site that he had built by himself. He says he wasn't getting rich but he was making about four hundred dollars more a week including his gas savings from not driving to his regular job.

The truth about your enerygy

So many things run on batteries these days and the cost is ridiculous. We figured out over years time we use about sixty dollars in batteries. Whether its in your remote control or in your kids toys. It does pay to go with rechargeable batteries as long as they are of a good brand name that we could trust. So buying rechargeable batteries and the battery charger are seemingly worth it but the batteries cost more and the price of the charger then it takes your electricity to charge the batteries which raises your electrical bill. So they're really isn't any savings. So buy a solar powered battery charger and that might help but there's still the initial cost and set up. It's a no win situation.

Dimarzio musicians friend

One thing leads to the other with our son. We've now transformed our garage into a miniature recording studio. With the help of dimarzio musicians friend. It took my husband and myself and my son two days to finally agree on what kind of different lighting we would have in the garage. After getting everything set up my husband had to call his electrician buddy that also plays in the band to add more power outlets and also track down and label all the cables in there.

Years go fast

I can't believe how fast the years have gone by since I've been in New York State. It seems like yesterday that I was getting married in the Philippines. Our son is now six and in the first grade. My birthday coming up I won't tell you my age but forty is only a few years away. I can't wait for the day with our family to return to the Philippines for our grand reunion of everyone.

Holiday decor clearance

Its been many many years since we bought new holiday decorations and this years the year to change. everything. I'm tired of looking at all the old stuff and the old colors. I was so surprised last Christmas when we went to my mother in law's in Florida I expected to see all her old decorations that I love so much but she had changed everything.  She kept all of her old things to give away to us kids. I brought the old Christmas bulbs. I found a place online it has holiday decor clearance. There are a few things that I'll be buying this week.

Catching the cool air

Its so hot during the day, I tried to open the windows in the morning to catch the cool air and then closed them at around noon. You would think that the cooler nights would also be better but it seems like by the time you turned on the fan it takes four hours to cool it down at night. Hopefully next year we can get our new whole house AC installed to be more comfortable.

Briefcases

It's so stressful for my husband updating his schooling for a week to go to work at a nuclear power plant for a shutdown. We tried our best to prepare ahead of time to make sure that he had all the proper tools of the job. Usually we're pretty used to it but this time we decided to pick up a briefcase for all his paperwork. Keeping his paperwork in order in the briefcase is a big help. Finding one at www.gotbriefcases.com was very easy.

Nuclear power plant schooling

My husband is going back to work at the nuclear power plant but before he does he has to update his schooling through the plant. It is very stressful everyday reading and reading and then taking test. You have two tries at the test if you don't pass you don't go to work there. Altogether in seven days he will have eleven tests and thousands of pages of computer reading to conquer.
