We are getting some more rain tonight. I think it should be fine to get even 1/2 to 1 inch. It seems pretty dry out and with the rain it means I don't need to water my plants as often. We have had a very nice spring so far and I hope it continues. The farmers have been working hard in the fields and I don't think they would mind a little rain either.

Investing In Gold

We have watched our economy struggle over the past year and a half. For many this meant that some of there investments have been depleted. Looking out into one's future, it can look depressing. Some are saying to buy gold coins. Do some investing in gold. When looking at the gold market we can see that it has been a fairly stable commodity. It can be stability in ones financial future. Usually Gold is considered to be a safe investment. It would be great to see it grow over the years for our future retirement. It sounds like something worth looking into.

Picture Downloads

After we take pictures we try to get them downloaded to our computer as soon as possible. Take today for example. We took close to 80 pictures at our grandson Israel's baby dedication. When we had the time last evening we hooked the camera up to the computer and got the pictures downloaded. I just feel better having it done. Every so often we copy the pictures from the computer to Cd's. We are getting quite a collection.

Memorial Day

Many people don't have to work on Memorial Day. I am happy for those that don't but I appreciate all those that do have to work too. It is a great time to stop and think of those brave men and women that have kept our country safe. Whether in the states or out of the country we have thousands of people protecting us. Thank you very much.

Louisiana Beauty School

As our children grow up they find themselves with important decisions. What will they become? If you are out there today and contemplating a Cosmetology career, then you may want to research the Regency Beauty Institute. It was founded over fifty years ago in Minneapolis Minnesota. With it's continual growth they have spread to nine states with nearly thirty campuses. The Louisiana Beauty School to mention one. Their aim is for a unique and exceptional education for each student. These campuses are built with upscale salons that provide a service to the public under their faculty supervision. You will also find that they have a placement service in place. Click in and see for yourself.

Hungry Pooch

Ever since our dog Zoe had her digestive issue we have only been feeding her a canned diet type food. It is softer, although the company makes a dry food too, and she loves it. She has never eaten so well. Supposedly the food is better for dogs with certain problems such as digestion and mobility. For now we are going to continue giving it to her. Because of this food, and not feeding her table food, she has lost 3 or 4 pounds and she's a smaller dog. So that's a lot of weight for her.

Treat Acne

As we were raising three children we found that there was always some kind of challenge facing us. Each one is an individual and has his or her own interests, desires, goals and struggles. During the teenage years we found that we were searching for what was the best way to treat acne. All three dealt with this issue on different levels. So what may have worked for one, didn't necessarily work for the others. But, we did come through that stage pretty well.

Fat Burning Products

Summer time has sprung. Now out come the light weight, smaller and sometimes tighter clothes. I like, the next guy, enjoy summer weather, picnics, swimming, lake time, parks and food. I want to be comfortable and be able to enjoy those great activities that this season brings. Once again we're on the hunt for fat burning products or the quickest thing that might assist us in meeting our goal. Hopefully we will succeed!

You know, there is very little today that can't in some way be enhanced with the use of pills. Be it a sexual issue and the use of extenze or dieting with the intake of an appetite suppressant. Many are turning to medication to assist in what they consider to be a healthier well being. I guess each individual needs to find what feels right for them personally.

Full Gutters

Wow, it rained very hard for awhile. The gutters couldn't hold all the rain. I think it has pretty much stopped now. The ground was beginning to get pretty hard so I guess the rain was welcome. Our dog Zoe usually freaks out in stormy weather but she seemed to enjoy the rain.

Migraine Headache Relief

Through out my 20's and even parts of my 30's, I found that I had a lot of headaches. Then by my mid 30's they began to intensify, growing increasing worse and with frequency. My 40's seemed to be my worse years as I found myself with migraines many days of each month. With doctoring I learned what some of my triggers were and have found some migraine headache relief. However, I still struggle at times.

Age Spot Removal

As we grow older our bodies begin to change. I'm sure there are many of you out there that are fully aware of this fact already. I have come to accept the changes that continue to appear. There are so many products on the market to slow down or help control some of the affects of aging. Now there is even an age spot removal system. We really don't have to put up with much, do we?

Term Life Insurance Rates

I think that one of the most amazing ways to save money is to check your budget and see what you are spending on. We went through our bills and found that insurance was possibly one way to cut back. Checking on term life insurance rates and other types of insurance quotes, we found that we could save ourselves hundreds of dollars a year. WOW! That is amazing!

We are going to paint the last bedroom this weekend. Bill has moved things out of the way and has taped the trim boards so we should be able to make very quick work of the job tomorrow. Two weeks ago we painted the downstairs family room and it made such a difference that we decided to do the bedroom too. I am sure we will be glad we did.

Mesothelioma Cancer

It is so sad to watch so many people dealing with sickness and cancer type diseases. My dad fought colon cancer last year and recently went through his one year check. We were so thankful for a great report. Many are not so lucky. Mesothelioma Cancer is a
rare form of cancer that affects the mesothelial cells surrounding the lungs, heart and stomach. They are finding now that exposure to asbestos is the main factor in this disease. That is just one of the many types of cancers attacking individuals today. Reading and being informed I feel is an important step towards ones health and well being.

Our grandson Emry is such a character! He is so much fun to be around. In this picture he looks like he's out to catch a speeder. Or maybe he already has? I love my grandchildren!

Safe Weight Loss Pills

Why do I have to have food on my mind what seems like all of the time? I am now into baking and cooking more then ever. I have always enjoyed working in the kitchen, but now it's becoming more of a passion for me. That does not always agree with the scale. As I get older it has become more difficult to keep off those extra pounds. Food tastes so good! In researching safe weight loss pills and other weight loss products, I find myself wondering what is the best route to take??

Diet Pill Reviews

I know that I've talked about weight issues on my blog before, but it seems to be a constant thorn in the side for me and my husband these days. I was reading about different diet pill reviews and methods of weight loss. Some feel that exercise and diet is the route to go. It is just amazing to me how much better food seems to taste as I get older. It is the first subject that seems to come up if we are traveling away from home. I'm not sure why that is, but it always comes around to the topic of food.
