I am sure most people remember using VHS tapes. We still have some but what we have most of are DVDs. The old family movies we had taped on VHS have been converted to DVD. We have a DVD recorder hooked to the VCR just for that purpose. It is handy and easy to use. The price of DVD recorders has come down a lot too. I think we spent well over $200 on ours. You can now buy one for not much over $100. Technology moves on.

Honeymoon Vacation

We are approaching that time of year when so many young couples are on the verge of walking down the aisle. A wedding day is one of the most important and memorable days of ones life. Along with that comes the unforgettable honeymoon vacation! The Riviera Maya is a beautiful white-sand beach location. The Karisma Hotels are a wonderful choice of all-inclusive resorts. They offer excellent service and an amazing way to relax. Each resort is individual and unique. Some are for adults only and others are family friendly. What ever it is you are looking for, be sure to check out this awesome resort line and enjoy your time away.

Grocery Day

Bill and I got groceries yesterday which is really kind of a fun job. We have gotten it down to where we can be done in about an hour. We generally get our main load of groceries every other week and then of course pick up a few things in between. It is nice to have them all put away and now we can enjoy our day at home today. We usually like to set up our weekends so that we can have a day at home. It doesn't always work out that way, but when it does it sure is nice.


Josh is busy this week due to several interviews he is having. He is planning on moving back to the north country and we are excited! It will be great to have Josh, Di and Emry close to us again. It has been a few years since they moved to Texas, but soon they will say goodbye to the year round warmth and get used to the seasons again. He is in the midst of interviewing as I type. Thank the Lord it is all in His hands!

Nice Inside

I enjoy my days off at home. It gives me a chance to catch up on things that are falling behind. We are now considering starting some painting projects. I would also like to install some more new lighting fixtures. We will have to get moving on this because Spring will be here before we know it. Summers are short and we always have a lot to do outside.

Health Care

I feel that the Government already has enough control on us. A Universal Health Care System would only allow more of the same. I watch some of the Gov't and State run health care programs that are in place today and see the abuse that is taking place. You will only encourage more people to sit back and take take take. We are becoming a lazy society that wants the Gov't to do for us, as if we have a right to that. What happened to getting out and working hard and making a way for our families. Think back to 50 years ago and how different it was. People didn't feel that they needed the HUGE newly built homes that we are seeing today. What happened to the more simple life?

Like many other people I look forward to the weekend. I can catch up on some work at home and also relax a little bit. The weather has been getting better so the weekend is even better than normal. We took a trip a week or so ago to see Jake. We went for a nice lunch and then saw some condos Jake is looking into before we went back to his apartment. His cat, Mylie, was just hanging out and was glad to see us.

Warming Up

It has been nice to have warmer weather lately. Temps in the 30's seem like a heat wave after having below zero and high winds for such a long time. I look forward to spring and summer. Even if it means mowing and raking. I will enjoy the warm weather more then the cold.

Diet Pills

There are many ways to lose weight. We can eat less, exercise, count calories and read labels about fat content. There are also diet pills on the market that have helped many people lose weight. It is wise to check with your doctor to find out if one or more of these are right for you. If you are trying to lose weight, diet pills may be an option for you.

Terrible Twos

A friend told me today that their younger boy is in the terrible two stage. He said that the older son was pretty good at age two but then was a terror when he turned three. They attend a local daycare and apparently learn many things that are not pleasing to the mom and dad. One example is spitting and another is saying no to the parents. OOPS. That is quite the no-no I would say.

Online Degree

Many are finding it difficult today to progress and succeed with out a firm educational back ground. You no longer have to wonder how you could earn an online degree while trying to keep a full-time job at the same time. With Capella University you will find the answers.

Don't delay, start researching your future today.

In Prayer

Whether people like the new president and his ideas or not we all need to be in prayer that he and his staff will lead us in the right direction. We need to respect his position. It is not a job I would care to have. I am pretty sure the Bush family is happy to be out of the presidency. I wish them well in the life they will lead from here on. Unfortunately there are those that are making this presidency a total race issue. I personally don't care what color the president is. Can he do the job? That is the question. Over time we will find out the answer.

POS System

Working in the business world I find there are a lot of demands. You are wanting your business or practice to grow and at the same time giving excellent quality care. With a POS system it can be helpful in assisting a business in growth. You can now increase production and volume. I think the HP POS system is worth looking into further.
