Right now we are having a pretty good thunderstorm. It is really raining hard. Just a few minutes ago it flashed a very bright lightening and I knew a big boom from thunder was next and sure enough it made me jump. It looks like it's getting lighter now so maybe it will be coming to an end soon.


My little great nephew is so adorable. Recently his mommy sent me a picture of him in his new Halloween costume. He is going to be a lion and his sister Kaelyn is going to be Dorthy from the Wizard of Oz. They ought to look pretty cute and I can't wait to see pictures.

United States Gold Bureau

The United States Gold Bureau is an authorized dealer for the U.S. Mint. A person can get the news and information about the precious metals industry from them. They also provide clients with the resources necessary to make decisions about their precious metals portfolio. When you are ready to purchase gold you should consider doing that through the U.S. Gold Bureau. They sell gold, platinum and silver in coins and bars form. They also sell rare and certified coins and gold that can be included in individual retirement accounts. This is a great way to purchase any future gold or silver.

It makes me kind of sad because it probably won't be long and we will have to take our pool down. It has been a really hot summer this year and we have been able to get into it a lot. My husband and I both miss having the time and the weather to get into it. The weather is suppose to cool down and so then does the water in the pool. That's not good.

Day Off

I just got done working my weekend and Monday so today I have a day off. I then work tomorrow and Friday so I have one more day off this week. I have to pick and choose what I want to get done in those two days. Sometimes it's hard because I have to be somewhere or get busy posting so I don't get a lot done around the house. Oh well, the dirty house isn't going anywhere and will still be there when I get around to cleaning it up.

Buy Gold Bars

I have heard a lot about this topic and also read a lot. When you buy gold bars you are putting your money into a pretty safe place. Gold bars are made for convenience of storing and safe keeping. It is also great to be able to hold in your hands what your money has been invested in. Gold has been around for many years and can protect wealth and preserve one’s purchasing power. Gold is a fascinating thing to invest in. It shines and looks very appealing along with being worth something great. So if you are looking for a unique way to invest your money consider buying gold bars.

Fall Temperatures

It is sounding like we could be in for some thunderstorms this evening. They are saying some could be severe and I'm sure hoping that it doesn't get bad. Then the weather is going to change a lot and the temperatures are going to feel more like fall. I love fall weather but I think it is too early for that yet. We keep hearing about the bad winter we are in for and the sooner we have fall weather the sooner winter will be here. None of us here are ready for that.


I went to day to highlight my hair and came home with darker hair. I am so tired of dealing with darker roots so we decided not to highlight but to low light. I think I like it and it is fun for a change. I didn't think my husband would like it but he seemed ok with it so that's good.

Gold Bar

Gold is of interest to everyone. Both men and women love anything gold. The Romans and Greeks knew centuries ago already that gold was a valuable commodity and made sure they collected all the gold they could. A gold bar is an easy item to store conveniently and can be purchased directly and have it sent to a safe depository of your choice or directly to you. By purchasing gold, you are ensuring that your wealth is safe for the future. It keeps its value and most often increases in value. Gold has many uses in fine jewelry and every Bride looks forward to her gold engagement ring and wedding ring. Many fine gold watches catch everyone's eye. So buying gold is a very good idea it appears looking back at the history of gold.

Swimming Pools

We have a large swimming pool in our back yard. I love to float on the water in the summer and get a nice tan. We put a fence around it for privacy from the neighbors. My folks came down one year and we had a great time splashing around in it. Mom says she is done swimming now and threw away her swim suit so I guess we won't be doing that again :0) It was a lot of fun though at the time.


We have been doing a great deal of remodeling to our home. I have painted all the walls a new color and then we got new carpet in several rooms. In addition to that we added a great family room where we spend much of our time lounging in easy chairs at the end of a hard days work. We attached the house to the garage so no more carrying groceries into the house in the rain. We love that. And we also added a beautiful deck that goes right on down to our swimming pool.

Is there anything as exciting as gold? Everyone loves gold jewelry, watches and items for your home. But have you stopped to think about what a safe investment it is to protect your wealth for the future. You can buy gold bullion directly from the U.S. Gold Bureau and have it shipped right to you. Or is you wish, they can also assist you in deciding the best safe depository for you to keep your gold. I think that is what I would want to do as I would have no worries about thieves breaking in to steal. Gold keeps its value and generally increases and that is why people for centuries have purchased gold in all forms, coins, bullion in order to protect their wealth. It is a smart decision, it seems to me.

Branson Vacation

My family and I have had the privilege of taking a Branson vacation a couple of times. There is so much to see and do there. If you enjoy great shows and attractions then you would enjoy a trip to Branson. They also have a lot of great lodging and it has a lot of activity going on all the time. It's a fun place to visit.

Log Furniture

My sister in law once lived in a log home that she and her husband had built and it was so fun and different from regular style homes. They had it decorated very nicely and I always could picture log furniture in their home. It would be have been perfect. I have seen at times log furniture in cabins and just regular homes too and it looks great anywhere. It is good solid furniture that won't break down.

Modern Dining Tables

As long as I have been married, which has been 28 years now, we have never owned a brand new dining room set. We have purchased new chairs but have a used table. I would love to someday own one of the beautiful modern dining tables that are available. I hope it happens, it would really add beauty to our dining room.

PO Financing

I'm sure it can be difficult at times for new businesses just getting started to have the money needed to keep up with all it takes to get a business started and going. It is great to know that their are places that provide po finance. This is great in helping provide the money needed to businesses for the purchase of specific goods that have been previously sold by the client to its credit worthy end customer. It is great to know there is help financially when need be.

Cooler Temps

The last few days have been such a relief from the heat. We have been able to open our window and let in some really nice cool air. It has made it so that we haven't had to run our air conditioner for several days now. Sounds like this weekend may change that though and that's ok because it's too early for fall like weather.

Online Military Degrees

A college education is very important today. Hardly anyone graduates and begins work these days. They know that it is important to have a degree in order to advance in the future and make a good living. However, many young people today decide to go into the Military instead of going on to college. Sadly, they miss out on getting their degree by doing this. But there is a great solution and that is online military degrees. There are many colleges that will help the Military get their degrees both online and on campus. It is just a matter of getting on the Internet and finding out where these colleges are. Many have programs that will help with tuition and also it pays to look into those who may offer discounts to both Veterans and active Military.

Fun Time

I just got back today from spending a couple of days with my sons. We had a great time and did a lot in the short time I was with them. We went out to eat a couple of times, saw a movie, and did plenty of shopping. It was really fun and like always the time went too fast.

Forex Training Webinars

Are you a new person into trading and could use some education and training in this area? Then you should check out Forex training webinars. They have daily training workshops and can be of great help. It is very much worth checking out.

Apidexin Reviews

When it comes to even thinking about using any kind of diet pills I definitely want to find out more information. Example would be to check out apidexin reviews because I would want to know if there are any side affects or even compare it to other diet pills. I think it is so wise to research these types of pills.

Insinkerator Disposals

It is really nice to have a garbage disposal in our kitchen. It's great to grind up left overs and just run it down the drain. A great style of a disposal that can grind up more food and remain pretty quiet is the Insinkerator disposals. Disposals can often be really noisy and these are more quiet. Sounds like a really good product to me.

Electric Fireplace

We recently added a small addition onto our house and have made a nice sitting room where we watch television and just chill out. We wanted to have a fireplace but wanted it to be something simple to do. So we found a very nice entertainment center with an electric fireplace right in it. We absolutely love it! The atmosphere of a fireplace in our new room is so wonderful.

Camera Reviews

On our last vacation my husband and I realized that we would like a better camera. We have been looking around the stores to see what brands we might be interested in. One thing I would really like to do is to read some camera reviews and compare the different styles and brands such as Sony, Cannon or Fuji. We definitely want one with a stronger zoom in our new digital camera.

Blue Cross Blue Shield North Carolina

A great health insurance is important to have and I'm sure most people are familiar with Blue Cross Blue Shield. It is a very well known insurance company and is used by many people I know. If you are someone who lives in the state of North Carolina and are in need of a good insurance then check into Blue Cross Blue Shield North Carolina.

RIFD Wallet

I hear a lot on the news these days about identity theft and how it happens too often. I recently heard about the rfid wallet that has sleeves in it to protect your personal information you carry in it like credit cards. What a great idea and hopefully by having a wallet like this will help at cutting down problems like identity theft.

Outdoor Cushions

My husband and I love sitting out on our back deck especially when it is cool enough to have a fire in our fire pit. We like having a comfortable place to sit and it is so nice to have chairs with soft outdoor cushions on them. It makes it that much more enjoyable sitting out there for a long period of time.

Iphone Warranty

It can be very nice when certain items we purchase come with a good warranty. You hope that nothing will happen to that item but you can't know that for sure. That goes for the purchase of cell phones and iphones. We handle them and they can so easily be dropped, sat on, or even get wet by something. Having an iphone warranty would come in real handy in cases like these.

I have a coworker that loves Halloween. She and her family go all out trying to find the perfect costumes each year. Many years they have come to our work party all dressed in the same category. It's been fun to see what they come up with. They are moving to another state soon so she decided to share with us their costumes for this year. They are all going to dress up like a character from the Wizard of Oz.

Lee Greenwood

We had the best time at the fair yesterday. Even if it was terribly hot, we managed to find cool places to cool down. We were able to see free concerts like Lee Greenwood and Davy Jones. We also sat in on the 5 o'clock news which is always fun to do. We got home really late and are feeling it today but it was worth it.

Get the Best Deals Shopping For School Clothing Online!

Get the Best Deals Shopping For School CLothing Online!

Written by my friend Roosevelt Spence

Back in the day, families would wait for the back to school sales and then get up early to go to their local department store to find their clothes and their backpacks and their school supplies. Now that I got huges sattelite internet, all of that changed.

Retailers online begin doing back to school sales almost as soon as school gets out. To find the best deals you need to be on the lookout. I personally use a website called www.slickdeals.net to find out the best deals. Just recently, I was able to obtain a free Jansport backpack from Staples with a mail in rebate. I heard about the deal on Slickdeals and was able to get on it quickly. That is a savings of $60 dollars. You can't find that in a store.

Shopping for school supplies like paper and pencils can be frustrating. Amazon has a new program called Subscribe and Save, which allows you to sign up to receive paper once every interval you set. That could be once a month, once every other month, or every six months. Because you are "subscribing" to the item, they give you a pretty hefty discount. Then when the school year is over, you can just cancel your subscription. I was able to save lot of money and time this way.

The internet has made all of this shopping possible thanks to the great satellite internet prices I got.

Garden Green Beans

We love fresh garden green beans and a co worker of mine brought in several bags of them today. So, I grabbed one of the bags and I'm thinking about making some for supper tonight. I'm not too sure what else we will have but I know we will enjoy those beans.

Buy Gold Bullion

Do you have some extra money sitting around that you would like to invest but you are unsure where to invest it and what might be the safest. It can be kind of scary when you think about investments these days but when you buy gold bullion you can protect your savings or extra money when doing so. You can take control of your money and protect it from inflation. Buying gold is known to be one of the best ways to preserve one’s wealth and purchasing power. It is an investment that you can actually hold in your hand and also know that it most likely will gain in value. It is a pretty solid investment.

Twin Sister

The other night we got together and celebrated my mom's birthday. We all had such a great time and my sister in law started taking pictures. I really enjoyed the pictures she took and it was fun to get one with my twin sister because we don't get to many of those taken together. I will share one with this post.

U Shaped Desks

I have a u shaped kitchen and I find that it is so handy when I am cooking or working in my kitchen. Everything is close at hand at a single turn. The same goes for U shaped desks. When you are working hard and are very busy wouldn't it be nice to have everything around you with in reach? How handy and it's so nice not to have to get up to go over to another desk or area to get what you need.

On Friday night we met up with other family members and celebrated my mom's 77th birthday. We had a very delicious meal and my sister brought a cake for dessert. It was so much fun and my mom seemed to really enjoy herself. We are blessed to have a mom like her.

Our sons are on there way home to our place tonight. It has been a few weeks since they have been here and I am very excited to have them with us through the weekend. Our youngest son is going to be in a wedding on Saturday and that's what is bringing them home. I don't care what it takes as long as they come home for a few days.

With having a blog of my own I have an easy access to many types of blogs. One I ran across was the carinsurancelist blog. This blog has all kinds of interesting information on things dealing with insurance, traffic situations, and other interesting topics. It is very informative and worth checking out.

Next week our state fair begins. My family and I are planning to go on the first day. We have tickets to the concert that evening and I am very excited about that. I'm hoping the humidity levels get better and so does the heat. I'm not a big fan of the fair especially when it's so hot and humid.
