Computers - what an invention. They are just great when they work, but when they don't then that is quite another story. I have really been having a huge problem with mine. Spyware has gotten into it and I was unable to do anything at all until I got it out. They say a computer is only as good as the one who puts the information into it but these guys that put virus in computers are really bad guys and I know they don't care how much trouble they cause people but they sure have caused me a lot of trouble.

You can work at your own speed, in the comfort of your own home, and not have to hit the road to the nearest college at night to take courses during the work week to get your degree. You know you are too tired to do the classes justice when you get off work and then have to drive to classes. Wouldn't it be much better to take the classes on line at your own pace? Check them out.

Cruce Oil Prices Continue to Increase

So what else is new? I just went to the gas station and as went up another 3 cents a gallon. It is about $3 now and by tomorrow I suppose it will be higher yet.I thought I heard they are talking $4 and $5 gasoline by summer. I bet that still won't keep a lot of people home but it will make you stop and think before you drive around without a destination and just sight seeing. This month oil per barrel went over the $100 mark and set a new record but has come down some since then. Who knows what's next?

Starbucks Tries out $2.50 Cup of Coffee

Starbucks Corp is experimenting with a $2.50 cup of coffee that would add a new, premium product to help fight the first drop in U.S. customer visits in its 37 year history. In its hometown of Seattle, Starbucks is testing a 12-ounce cup of what they call fresh pressed coffee at $2.50 each. The price is $2.25 in a Boston trial. Starbucks charges $1.55 for a regular brew. McDonald's Corp has been stealing customers with $1.39 coffee and is challenging Starbucks by adding expresso counters. I don't really care what they do because I make my own coffee in all kinds of flavors and it doesn't cost and arm and a leg to get it. They can keep their fancy coffee. It is too expensive for me anyway.

Moving Companies

I have driven a lot of semis in my day but never a moving van. One thing I do hate and that is moving. It is not a fun thing and when you are done you are aching all over. If you don't have the money to hire someone, you have to round up all the relatives with their pickups to come help you. But fortunately, if your company will pay to move you, or you can afford a moving company yourself, then you can get on the Internet and go to this website moving companies and find a good honest reputable company to move you. That is because they are really strict with their applications for their companies to make sure they are getting good ones for you. They even have negotiated with them in advance for up to 65% discount on your move. Sounds good to me, how about you?

Ice and Snow

Well it dumped on us again last week and we had a real blizzard going. A lot of people ended up in the ditch and I heard there were 23 cars in the ditches on the freeway just by the new casino alone. My nephew works there and he counted them when he went to work. He is flying to New Orleans or I should say he flew here on Sunday and will be back in 3 days. He will get to see some of Katrina's damage. That should be interesting although it is very sad for those who live there.


How about a nice bunch of kittens for that farm of yours to help get rid of the mice and rats that seem to keep popping up everywhere. I have a great bunch here that I put out food for every day and they could all use a good warm home in someone's barn. If you could use some cats or kittens, this is the place to come and get them. They keep multiplying all the time it seems. I really enjoy them though. They are fun to watch at play.

Financial Jobs Blog

Are you working in the field of finances, but you know you are not getting the money you deserve for salary? Is it getting harder and harder to support your family and the kids are starting college soon and you just plain need more money? I know it is hard searching for a new position but you have to get out that old resume first and get it updated. Then where do you go from there? Well I found this company on the Internet at this website financial jobs blog that is just the right one for you to start checking in with.

Night Stalker

Sitting here at the computer I just noticed a shadow sliding into the room so slowyou can bearly detect movement. It's my big striped cat stalking it's prey. the prey being me of course. She is moving at one pace every 30 to 45 seconds and doing a great job of it. When she clears about half the distance then she brakes stride and walks right up to me. It's really a blast to watch her move so gracefully.

Non Addictive Nasal spray

If you have children the most important thing in their life is you. When they're sick you have to know what to do to help comfort them. Recently the FDA recalled cough and cold medicines from the stores and today their looking at nasal sprays. This website Oasis Nasal Spray can fill you in on what is safe and what isn't. Some nasal sprays can only be used 2days or 3 days maximum before you'll start becomming addicted to them. Osasis nasal spray doesn't have that problem becauseit uses salty waters from the dead sea which is the saltiest sea on earth. Most of the nasal sprays are based in saltwater solution but then they're blended with other ingredients that could be addictive to a child and that you don't need. Osasis nasal spray loosens the congestion so it can safely be blown and wiped away freeing the nasal passages so ypur child can breathe freely again. Everyone knows about the healing powers of the dead sea and of the extreme saltwater it contain. If your child or anyone in your family has recurrant sinus infectionsor sneezing,nasal drip.chronic sinus problems then you have just discovered hope for them. Osasis nasal spray was developed by an ear, nose and throat specialist Scott Cordray of Master Solutions.

An Oasis of Relief for Parents

As a parent, deciding on what medicine to give your children is one of the most fearful responsibilities you have. You hear bad reports on how addictive or how harmful some remedies are in newspapers and on the TV almost every week. It can become absolutely stressful when your child is sick and you then must make the hard decision on what to pick up at your local pharmacy.

This grave concern was not helped when the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) made a recent recall for over-the-counter cough and cold medicines for children. They are now contemplating whether nasal sprays and nose drops are safe for children younger than 12. The FDA is worried that these easy to use congestion reducers have dangerous side effects such as addictive tendencies. But there is hope for parents out there. There is now a safe and effective solution you can buy.

Oasis Nasal Spray and Wash is proud to announce that it is not on the recall list and has a strict non addictive standing. Oasis has released Children's Oasis Nasal Spray and Wash. Oasis’ solution is all natural and produced entirely of purified Dead Sea Minerals. Many nasal sprays contain a saltwater base, which helps release congestion in the nose and is easily wiped away. Oasis nasal spray takes it another step by not simply being saltwater from any ocean mixed with other chemicals like the leading nasal spray, but is all natural and made from the most salty sea in the world.

Oasis Nasal Spray provides the healing powers of the Dead Sea in their products for problems faced everyday; nasal allergies, runny nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, postnasal drip, itchy nose, recurrent sinus infections, and chronic sinusitis. Oasis Nasal Spray was created by Scott Cordray; Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist. His company Master Solutions has helped to create Oasis Nasal Wash and Oasis Nasal Spray by utilizing the healing salts of the Dead Sea.

Lunar Eclipse

Last night there was a lunar eclipse and guess what I missed it. I watched the weatherman talk about it andturned around and didn't think about it until it was over. I chalk it up to old age but really I've seen a couple of them and one is pretty much like another. I'm not knocking it because the younger renerations should be able to see at least one in their lifetime. I guess it should be manditory.

Schoolbus Wrecks

Boy there seems to be a lot of schoolbus accidents this past week. I'm a retired semi truck driver with 40 years over the road driving experience. I've seen schoolbus drivers go past me at stop signs or just going the other way. There are some out there I wouldn't ride with let alone let my kid ride. I don't care what they say 25 hours of training doesn't make a good driver. Years of the old seat of the pants experience can. Right now with the weather we've had around here the best training may not be enough. Until they come up with a better plan just hang in there.

Office Space

I'm slowly converting a small bedroon in the front of my mobile home into a small office. It has an L shaped desktop and at the far end lays a blanket with a 10 pound black and white cat sleeping on it. I put a corner shelf for a TV guess where, right in the corner. I laid a lap board on top of it. That's a flat surface with a beanbag back for your knees but now is upside down and the cat is laying on it. It's about 10 inches higher than the desktop and she thinks she is the queen of all she surveys.

Tomorrow? FREEDOM

Tomorrow a plane will land at our local airport and deposit my friend. Now this is the friend whose dogs I've been tending to for the last 11 days and they will be so glad to see their mommie. Probably about 1/2 as much as I will because I will be able to sleep in again. You don't know how much you miss something until it's gone but now I'm getting it back.I guess all I can think of is WELCOME HOME WOMAN glad you're back.

Really Cold Weather

It's been down below zero again the last couple days. The local authorities say you can leave your ice house on the lake another 2 weeks. It's been 4 to 12 below at night and wind chill brings it down to -25 to -40 and that's cold. Over the years I've spent much unwanted time out in it and now I'm older I don't have to. That's one of the only things about getting old is if you don't have to then don't. I'm getting to like that idea more and more every year that passes me by.

The Lunch Box Diet

If you read the celebrity magazines then you may know about the lunch box diet. OK magazine and Elle have both covered it quite well. Cammeron Diaz and mny other leading stars swear by it. According to Elle it doesn't matter so much on what or how much you eat at mealtimes. The weight control comes with what you eat between meal. This site The Lunch Box Diet can give you all the details about the diet. The basic idea of the diet is to get a large lunch box. Then you fill it with all your favorite veggies, lean protien and healthy fats. Then simply you feel a craving you just snack on these things. Cameron says she snacks 8 to 10 times between meals and it controls her hunger so at meal time she can control what she eats. You get the same answer regardless of who you ask. The best diet in the world lets you eat what you want and the weight loss will be natural. When you think about it there isn't a better way because you're not hungry so you're not over eating just because you like the meal. When you have a lunch box you always have a weight loss friendly snack to ease those cravings. By simply doing that you lose weight and become the person you really want to be a new and healthier you and you can't beat that.

Dog Sitting

When you first get to the house the dogs are so happy to see you and get outside. Then they come in and are fed so they can now rest but no they want back out. Not both of them but just one the other waits until the first one comes in then she goes. This is a little game they like to play so you can't watch TV because you're up and down with the dogs. I always stay at least 2 hours so they have company. When I reach for my coat they both want out and inspect every inch of the yard so you can't leave. When you do leave the neighbors probably think you beat them the way they scream.


Talk about being blessed with good friends, relatives you love and reasonable good health. I away thought that's the way to go until last week and I came down with pneumonia. The pills the doctor gave me have counteracted the bad stuff and I feel pretty good. But when I go out I have to really bundle up because one shot of cold air and you cough until your lungs feel like they will blow out. So anyway I taking care to be warm when I go out and stay warm when I indoors. That's about it, tomorrow's another day.

Ski's, Snowmobiles, and Dog Sleds

If we get to much more snow we will all have to borrow money to buy these things just to get groceries or the mail. The drifts that the snowplow leaves along the streets is as high as the door handles on your car. Many of the intersections in town you can't see if anything is coming until your out in traffic and sometimes that's to late. They have plow trucks with a swing arm blade mounted on them so they can shave off the tops of these drifts but haven't done it yet. I'm inclined to agree with Larry The Cable Guy and say Get-R-Done.

That's Life

I say that's life because you don't know how many people who live around you are paying attention to everything. There are 2 or 3 who talk to me on a regular basis but since I've been sick it seems like they have all noticed I'm not around as much. They are either calling or asking other neighbors how I've been because they haven't seen much of me.I'm certainly not a member of the oldest generation but I guess I fall into the next one which is still getting up there.

I just heard the weatherman and it sounds like it could miss us so guess there is hope yet. For now, I am staying in all I can, staying warm and trying to get my strength back again. I had the flu shot but they say there is a flu around that the shot doesn't work on, and I think I got it.

I get a flu shot every year and that helps keep me free from everything even little sniffles.

It's A Great day

The weatherman threatened us with several inches of snow last night and everyone was so happy. NOT!!! I watched the late night news and they had changed their minds and said that most of it would miss again. We got some freezing rain and then about an inch of snow on top last time. This time all we got was about 1/4th of an inch of snow dusting. That worked for me and my friends.

Little Bit

I have a very special friend that lives with me. Her name is Little Bit but I call her Bitty Kitty. She is black, brown and orange striped and weighs around 12 pounds. When I go to bed at night she sleeps behind my legs or on top of them. I'm telling you trying to roll over with a 12 pound cat laying on your legs is a great chore. She doesn't want to move if she doesn't have to because she's afraid my other cat will take her place. The other one lays on the oposite side of my legs. About the only thing good about it besides the extra heat is you don't toss and turn in your sleep.
