Over And Over

We were blessed with a little warm weather for a few days. When we just started getting used to it they predicted snow again. Looking for 1-3 inches today and another 1-3 tomorrow. They talk 5-7 inches by the end of it. The people in the New England states have way more than us but we have sub-zero temps to go with it. The older you get the more you hate this stuff and I'm at the point I really hate it. Oh well that's what life's all about, you can't win them all.

The last month we've had below zero weather with highs inthe single digits. Guess what, today the temps got up to 30 with a mild wind. I guess I forgot how warm the sun feels when there isn't any wind. Our wind chill the last few days has been 25 to 30 below zero. You just can't stay outside in that kind of weather very long. Hopefully in another month or two the warm will come back and stay.

Push Snow

You know there has to be more to do than just push snow. I guess it would be easier if it would quit snowing so you could concintrate of other things in life. I got to town and finally got my hearing aid fixed. The only thing wrong with the snow plowing is when there isn't any to move you have to figure out what else to do. There is always so much then you wonder where to start because there's so many things that need doing. Another couple months the snow will be gone and there will be grass to mow. At least it will be a lot warmer out.

Good Credit Mortgages

If you are a person that has good or excellent credit, then the various types of mortgages are available to you. There are a number of home mortgages for various types of reasons. You may want to take advantage of the drop in interest rates on mortgages that are being offered now. If that is the case, you may save yourself considerable money and pay off your home loan much sooner than before. You may want to avail yourself of a second mortgage to build on, remodel, or add on a garage for example. You may even want buy all new furniture and update your kitchen by taking advantage of an equity loan on your home. I know my neighbor has built on a new entry way to his home as it faces North and in this country, so much snow and cold would come in the entry door each year so now he has solved that problem.

Low Car Insurance

Boy, my budget is really hurting in the New Year 2011. We did not get a raise in our Social Security and it was hard enough last year. So I am looking at my budget and I know that I must find cheap car insurance. One of the places to get the best car insurance rates is on the Internet. So I got on my computer and started searching to see how much money I could save to help my budget. I found with filling out an easy form I could get a free auto insurance quote from and I found out I could save quite a bit of money on my car insurance. That will sure make life lots easier for me.

How Does It Happen

Hospitals have a reputation for being clean and germ free. The operating rooms are supposed to be sterilized clean and safe. I want to know with all the money they charge just for a doctors visit they should be spotless clean. Why is it then that a lot of surgery patients are catching infections before they leave the operating room or in their rooms. Since the surgery is wrapped in bandages how do they get the infection. I had knee surgery 3 months ago and was transfered to a nursing home for rehabilitation. The nurse at the home saw infection in my knee the day I got there. I was transported back to the hospital for a IV antibiotic trearment. Well it's been 3 monts now and my knee still isn't healed enough than I don't need a walker or a cane to even walk.

New Years Start

This is the start of another new year and it's cold outside. Last week it was in the 30's and now it's single digits and below zero at night. The wind has been blowing pretty hard the last few days and has slowed down today. If you go out be sure you dress warm or you'll wind up catching the virus going around,
