Online Marketing

Today every company that really wants to get out and contact the public will have a website setup for them. However, online marketing sometimes is not so easy. But if you hire the right company that is experienced and knows how to draw the public to your website and grow your business this way, you will be very happy with the results. You may be pleasantly surprised at how inexpensive it is for local search engine placement services can be, especially for your small business. Experienced CEO's, customized services and no contracts is a big plus. You can even go online and check out this company's customers. There is nothing quite as good as the listing of happy customers to convince you that you are working with the right company.

Better Weather

I spent quite a few hours moving snow this week. I have great equipment to do it with. I work for this friend and he calls me whenever he needs me. Now it is sunny and a lot of the snow has been melting. I heard we might get more in the next couple of days. That will mean more work for me. I can always use the money :0)

Live alone? Hungry for cake? Try This

3, 2, 1 CAKE
These individual little cakes are amazing and ready to eat in one minute! They are perfect
for whenever you feel like a treat without all the fat and calories that cake can have. Genius idea!

1 box Angel Food Cake Mix
1 box Cake Mix - Any Flavor
2 Tbsp Water
Makes 1 serving.

In a ziploc bag, combine the two cake mixes together and mix well. For each individual cake serving, take out 3 Tablespoons of the cake mix combination and mix it with 2 Tablespoons of water in a small microwave-safe container. Microwave on high for 1 minute, and you have
your own instant individual little cake!

KEEP remaining cake mixture stored in the ziploc bag and use whenever you feel like a treat! You can top each cake with a dollop of fat free whipped topping and/or some fresh fruit.

Helpful Tips:
This recipe is called 3, 2, 1 Cake because all you need to remember is
"3 tablespoons mix, 2 tablespoons water, 1 minute in the microwave!"

TRY various flavors of cake mix like carrot, red velvet, pineapple, lemon, orange, etc. Just remember that one of the mixes has to be the angel food mix; the other is your choice.
The flavor possibilities are endless!

The best thing is, you open both cake mixes into a gallon storage bag, one that 'zip locks' or 'self-seals', or a container that seals tightly, shake the two cake mixes to blend and then make the recipe. Storage of mix is simple, put it on a shelf. No need to refrigerate, since the mix is dry. Always remember, that one of the cake mixes MUST be Angel Food. The other can be any flavor. The Angel Food is the cake mix that has the egg whites in it. So, if, anyone is allergic to egg whites, DO NOT serve this recipe.

Snowing and Blowing

Looks like winter might just be sneaking up on us. It has been a great year up till now. I don't remember a winter like this without snow. But the weatherman says we can look for a bunch maybe on Friday. They are also watching what could be a real big snowstorm on Monday and Tuesday. I hope not, or there goes Taco Tuesday again. It was snowing and blowing so hard all morning my sister decided she better stay home. First time in months that she has had to stay home due to weather. I wish it could stay nice till Spring and as they say, then warm up.

One More Time

The local Taco Johns has taco Tuesday every Tuesday. The weather has been so great for January that my sister and I have tacos and churros every Tuesday. She has to drive 12 miles to where I live so if the roads are bad it means no tacos that day. Thursday we're going to drive down to Iowa Falls for lunch and a visit with one of our younger sisters. The last sister lives 300 miles from here so having lunch with her is out. Who knows maybe next summer it will come together and we'll all four get together for a good long visit. Right now we'll see what next Tuesday looks like.

Christmas Pictures

Here is a picture of my sister and some of her family. Her family has really grown in the last few years. She has 14 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. But not only that but No. 13 is on the way for February and she just found out No. 14 is due close to her birthday in August. It would be neat if the baby was born on her birthday. It is possible.

Making Plans for Wedding

Pictured here is my sister and her grandson talking over his plans for his wedding next summer. It will be a neat wedding out in Colorado so will make a great trip for her to go to the wedding. She hasn't been out in the mountains for years and loves them. We have some friends and relatives living in Colorado but we never get out there. It is just too far to drive and I don't want to fly either so it is nice to for her to have her kids take her along with them. That way she doesn't have to either drive or fly.
