There is nothing quite like getting out in a good camping site with your family. Sitting around the campfire, telling stories, roasting marshmallows and just plain having a good time is something we look forward to every year. When you travel, if you can get a good RV and plenty of great camping gear you are all set for a good time. In checking out the Internet, I found some wonderful sales on everything you could possibly want or need for your travel and recreational trips in your RV. It is a good time to save money now on those things you have been wanting to buy for a long time, but thought you could not afford them. Now with sales going on, you can get so much more gear and great accessories that are going to make your trips more comfortable, handy and affordable. Save money now for those trips this Spring, Summer and Fall. You and your family will be able to have so much better travel when you have all the gear you need on your trips. There are some great RV sales going on too right now so perhaps you may want to trade in your old RV for an updated model. They have made so many terrific improvements in RV's over the past few years that they are like taking a piece of your home with you. You can still rough it but also leisurely relax in your RV too whenever you want to.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I am home and doing better every day. Trying now to walk with 2 canes as well as my walker. It works better here at home as don't always have enough room to get around with the walker. Every day my new knee is getting better and I am getting stronger. Right now we are having some bad weather and it is very slippery outside so I am staying in where it is warm and safe.

I love my cats. They are so much company for me. They have antics that make me laugh and laughter is good for you. I was in the hospital and then in physical therapy for at least 6 weeks and I wasn't sure if my cats would remember me. It took about 25 minutes to get re-acquainted with them. My old cat knew me right away but the younger one took awhile. I have a lot of fun with them and the younger one likes to get right on my computer keyboard making it kind of hard to type sometimes.
I sure do not have a lot of money to invest and because if that I have to look and look to find a good safe place to invest the money that I do have. I have been checking the Internet to see what I could find and I have been listening to television. They have been saying on television that now is the time to buy gold. I found that if you buy gold bullion you have just about the safest investment you can make. Gold has been around for centuries and people knew back then that gold was the best way they could preserve their wealth for the future. Gold keeps its value and generally gains in value, making it a very safe investment. I found out you can contact the U. S. Gold Bureau directly and they will help you with your purchase and also help you decide on a safe depository in which to keep your gold. I don't think I can go wrong with gold.
I had a lot of pain before I had my knee replaced. However, I am still having a lot of pain. My sister says every day it will get better and better, but so far it hasn't. I had physical therapy at home today so it feels even more sore. But I hope that will help take out the pain and it will soon feel a lot better. I think I slept wrong on my leg night before last and that sure didn't help any. Right now it feels like it is taking forever to get well but I sure am glad to be home again.
When you are in business advertising is a very large part of your budget. You want to get your business out in front of everyone so they will know you are there. You need a logo that stands out from all the rest and you want something that will express the type of business you are in. I know that it is important to have a letterhead logo and if you have delivery trucks or trucks that service people and homes, you need to have a logo on them that catches everyone's eye. It needs to be something they will remember when they need your service. Today with everyone on the phone, a great way to expand your business is by way of Mobile Wallpapers. Every time they go to call someone, your logo will pop up in front of them. You can get several kinds of logos for the iPhone and Blackberry and it is good to have a company that will work with you until you get your logo just exactly the way you want it. You can choose your colors and make it unique to your business. In checking the Internet, I found a company with 45,000 satisfied customers. They have to be doing something right in order to make that many people happy. For a reasonable price, you can update your logo and bring in new business.

When you get out in your vehicle in some of the snowy States in the winter time, you better be sure you have a good set of tire chains. In checking the Internet, I found the best site for buying tire chains that are easy to put on. That is what you want when you are stalled or about to be stalled in deep snow. I watched some YouTube videos to be sure I could put them on the right way. There is a EasyToGo tire chain that is like it says - it is easy to put on and get going. The top tire chain though is the Grip. It is a very reasonable price and you can put them on in 2 minutes. That's what I need out there on the road.
Here I am home again and it sure feels good to be home. I got home on Saturday and it took quite awhile to get re-acquainted with my cats. I had been gone for 6 weeks for physical therapy for a new knee replacement. My friends did many things here in my home to make it easier for me to get around. My sisters put up new curtains for me too. That old saying that "there's no place like home" is sure true. There's nothing like it.

Everyone should have some good life insurance to protect their family in case something happens to you. Whether you are single or married, someone is going to have to pay the funeral bill when you die and it is never too soon to Buy Life Insurance. I was checking around the Internet the other night to see if there was any place I could get some life insurance without taking a medical examination. I hate that when they require you to go and have a complete physical before they will sell you insurance. I found a place where they sell term life insurance without a physical exam and I said that's the place for me to look into. They had a real easy form on their website to fill out and you could get free quotes. Not only that but there was a lot of good information on there about life insurance and companies and I could sign up for a newsletter and keep up with the latest information on life insurance. That is just what I needed. So I got busy and filled out the form to get the free quotes and it was very quick and easy and I also signed up for the free newsletter because I want to keep up on life insurance as I may want to buy some more to supplement what I already have.
What kind of wall clocks do you like? Now that most clocks are battery operated, I like having one in every room of the house. I do not always have my watch on so I sometimes am not sure just what time it is and I want a clock in the room so I can tell the time quickly. I have several of my clocks that are really old so I started searching the Internet and found a howard miller wall clock that I really like. I would love to have one in the living room that chimes out the hour and/or half hour. I have always enjoyed hearing such clocks in other people's homes and I would like to get one for myself. I did not know that they made outdoor clocks but I think I would really like one of those too because when I am working outside, I lose track of time. If I had the clock right outside on my house, I would always know what time it is and would never be late for my next job. With the atomic wall clock, the numbers are nice and big and I can see them without my glasses. That would be very handy.

Have you ever notice what a difference exterior shutters can make on a house? Well I have looked at many homes and see all different colors and also some are wood and others look like vinyl. I think I would like the vinyl better because they would probably stand up better to the harsh weather we have here. A good friend of mine just came over and painted my home for me. He did it in white with green trim. It looks really great but something seems to be missing. It dawned on me that it was probably because I did not have any shutters on my house whereas everyone around me do have shutters on their homes. I asked my friend and he said to check out the Internet and see what I could find and he would put them on for me. So I did just that and I found this company that would ship them directly to me and if I spent over $199 shipping was free. Some of the shutters even came with free shipping all the time. I found a huge array of colors and I could get some dark green ones that would look great on my home. I can hardly wait to get them as I know my home will be the envy of the neighborhood.
I have to admit when I first started blogging, I sure did not know one thing about web hosting. I soon found out that the best way to get the information I needed was to get on my computer and check out the internet for webhosting reviews. I needed to find out what the best web hosting providers were and one of the best ways I know is to find out what other people think. A company who has done all this work for me was just great. They had lists of the 10 best that would work for me. Not only that but my friend has a small business and they also had the 10 best web hosting providers for small businesses. They also have dedicated servers for enterprises, as well. I figured if they had gone through all the work to find the best ones, then this was the place for me to turn to in order to start a new website. I liked their guarantees also. It just doesn't pay to work with anyone that won't give you a guarantee. Several members of my family are looking at starting up their own websites too and I will be able to direct them to a good company for advice on which is best for them. I am sure glad I found them.

I finally got the van I have always wanted. I got a really good deal on it too. My friend is driving it while I am in physical therapy. She took it home and did a good cleaning on the inside. I know it really needed it. With my knee being so sore, I didn't feel much like doing anything. I had enough trouble just walking without falling down. It will be great to drive around in a nice clean van again.
Now is the time to buy silver bullion. There has never been a better time because production is not keeping up with the demand. There is only just so much silver that can be mined and that which has already been mined is almost depleted. The United States used to have quite a supply but they dumped it on the market. Now they are buying it too making it a great investment for everyone. You can contact the U. S. Gold Bureau to make your purchases of silver and they have a great staff there to help you. They will assist you in choosing a safe depository for your silver also.
I never thought for a minute when I decided to have my knee replaced that I would be in physical therapy this long. I want to go home so bad but they say it will be all next week too yet. I have one set of physical therapists from the hospital come 3 times a week and the care center therapists give me therapy 6 days a week. My leg is finally just about straight at last. I got to take off my brace except at night. That is a big relief. I can get around better and do many exercises in my room by myself. That should help me get out of here quicker.
Here it is the first of the month again and it is time to pay bills. You can count on them rolling in. That seems to be most of the mail that I get at this time of the month. The rest of the month, it is a lot of advertising and junk mail. You really have to get right on the ball and get your bills paid so they do not charge you late charges on top of everything else. That really hurts when you are on a limited income.
If you have had an unusual amount of pain and swelling since you got your hip replacement, then you may have one of the parts that have been recalled. Johnson & Johnson have recalled over 93,000 of them and that is almost unbelievable. I know if I was suffering like that since my hip replacement, I would look into a DePuy Hip Replacement lawsuit. I would get hold of a good law firm that is experienced and could help me find out if I have a lawsuit or not. I sure hope I would not have to go through another surgery and have this replacement taken out and another put in.
I had my doctor appointment on Monday. He said I could have my leg brace off during the day now because my leg is almost straight, but I should wear it at night to be sure and keep it straight. Now I will have physical therapy for another 2 weeks to get the knee bending and the muscle behind the knee strengthened enough to hold my weight. I will sure be glad when this is all over with. I know I needed to have it done, but I didn't think it would take this long to get over this knee replacement.
I live alone and my home is definitely a man's home. Since I am a widower, I probably do things differently than when my wife was alive and took care of everything. Now I kind of rough it, so to speak. I was sitting at my computer and looking around the Internet when I ran into rustic bedroom furniture. I thought it was the greatest furniture I had ever seen for a man such as me. It is good and sturdy and I really like the rustic look. It would just fit into my bedroom perfectly. There are plenty of styles to choose from and I need a new chest of drawers really bad. Not only that but a good night stand to hold my lamp is just what I need as I don't have one right now. The red oak hickory barnwood dresser with 4 drawers is what I would need. And a new Armoire would do nicely in place of the old one I have. This is great furniture and would turn my bedroom into a real man's bedroom. I know it may not be to a woman's liking as much as to a man but I'm not too sure about that either. I think everyone would like this well built rustic style of bedroom furniture. I would like it all through my house.

I miss my cats. I have been in a care center taking physical therapy for a month now. My good friend has been taking care of my cats for me. They are a lot of company to me and I really miss them. I miss being at home. I can hardly wait to get out of here and get home again and back out into the world. It is a bummer being stuck in here with nothing much to look forward to but meals, maybe some mail and physical therapy which is quite painful. I sure will be glad when I can walk on both legs again and get going.
Have you ever held a gold coin? It gives you a feeling of richness and security. It would be wonderful to have many gold coins in my possession. I found out that I can purchase gold directly from the U. S. Gold Bureau and have it sent right to my home. They also would be happy to help advise me of a safe place to store them and that seems like the best idea. Gold is a wonderful investment because it keeps it value and often grows in value. When you invest in gold you feel your wealth is safe for the future. They have a great staff there to help you with your purchases too.
My birthday is coming up November 10 and I was very disappointed to learn that I would have to spend it in the physical therapy ward of the care center. I have been here since October 1 and I am more than ready to go home. However, my knee surgery isn't ready yet so it kind of looks like I could have to stay here at least another month. That's because the doctor said he would see me in a month. I hope I can work on my leg so that I get out of here sooner than that. Guess we will see.
I had my doctor appointment this morning. There was some good that came out of it. I do not have to wear my leg brace all the time now. I do have to wear it at night when I sleep to make sure my leg stays straight. I can live with that. However, the muscle behind my knee is still weak so I have to work at it until I can kick my leg up. I will have to be trying to do that day and night and having more physical therapy for weeks yet.
I know that I need to save for retirement. I have had a great deal of advice from many of my friends as to what to invest in to save up for the future. When you are retired you want to have fun. You do not want to be so short of money you can't go anywhere or do anything you want to. In listening to all the advice, I have decided that the best investment of all is bullion. Why is that, you may ask? Well, I have discovered that it is a commodity that keeps its value. That is what you want when you are saving for retirement. By buying gold bullion, you can rest assured you have a safe investment for the future.
