Wall Street Closes Erratic Week Mixed

Wall Street finished an erratic week narrowly mixed Friday after a government report of a steep decline in new home sales stirred concerns that weakness in housing will continue to dog the economy. The major indexes lost ground for the week. The Commerce Department report that new home sales fell 9 percent from October to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 647,000 triggered renewed nervousness that consumers could become uneasy and tamp down their spending. Stocks, which fell more than 1 percent Thursday following unwelcome economic readings and the assassination of Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto, fluctuated through the day Friday.

Boeing Reaches 790 Orders for the 787

Boeing said Thursday it finalized a deal with British Airways, increasing to 790, the orders for its long awaited 787 Dreamliner plane during the last three years. British Airways' order for 24 Dreamliners gives the plane one of the industry's most successful launches ever, even though the airliner has yet to fly. The 787, Boeing's first newly designed jet since airlines started flying the 777 in l995, will be the world's first large commercial airplane made mostly of light, durable, less-corrosive, carbon-filter composites. Boeing says its new plane will be cheaper to maintain and offers better fuel efficiency and more passenger comforts than planes flying today. A quarter of the systems on board the 787, by value, are made by Cedar Rapids, Iowa based Rockwell Collins.

An American girl was rescued from a Panama plane crash. She was the sole survivor of a plane crash and was reunited with her family after rescue workers trekked for five hours to carry the 12 year old American girl out of a remote mountain area. Then they airlifted her to a hospital. Francesca Lewis was wearing a neck brace and with one arm bandaged, met with her parents at a hospital in the town of David, capital of Chiriqui province.

The Panamanian pilot, Edwin Lasso, age 23, was also killed.

Ginger Rogers Musical

When I was young, I could hardly wait for the next Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire musical to come to our local theater. They danced so beautifully together. They were joy in motion and such enjoyment to watch. Now a new movie is coming out in February and April called "Ginger and Me". It is a World Premier of the new movie and we can hardly wait to get tickets to it. But we don't have to wait because they are available here at this website Ginger Rogers Musical and I think it is just wonderful that they have made this movie of Ginger for this generation to enjoy. Hurry before they are sold out.

I am being paid for this post.

Bhutto Assinated in Pakistan Today

Former Prime Minister Bhutto was killed today by a sniper, shot several times in the neck and died at the hospital. She was at a rally being held before the election on January 8. They do not know who is behind it but they do know the country is notorious for not wanting a woman in power of any kind. She was educated in the United States and wanted so much to bring democracy to her country. She knew the dangers but took the chance anyway and now she is dead. What a shame.

60 Year Old Man Sues Boy

A 60 year old man is taking an 8 year old boy and his dad to court, claiming the boy caused a ski-slope collision that left the older man with a shoulder injury. He is suing for $75,000 in federal court in Denver claiming the boy, who was then 7, was skiing fast and recklessly when they collided in January, the Vail Daily reported Thursday. The boy's father said that he saw the crash and that his son was skiing slowly and in control. It wasn't a violent collision or anything his father said and his son just kind of tapped his ski boots. The boy's mother says her son weighs 48 pounds and couldn't have been going more than 10 mph.

Breast Cancer Patients not Told Options

Did you know that most doctors don't talk about breast reconstruction with women before cancer surgery, depriving them of key information that can sway their decision about whether to have the whole breast or just a lump removed, new research suggests.Only 1/3 of the roughly 1200 women in the study said surgeons discussed cosmetic remedies with them in advance. When the topic did come up, women were four times more likely to choose the more drastic operation, mastectomy. The point is that all women should be advised of all their options, so they can make the right decision for them.

Cannabis Smoke Has More Toxins

Scientists have discovered that inhaled cannibis smoke has more harmful toxins than tobacco. The Canadian government research found 20 times as much ammonia, a chemical linked to cancer. The Health Canada team also found five times as much hydrogen cyanide and nitrogen oxides, which are linked to heart and lung damage respectively. But tobacco smoke contained more of a toxin linked to infertility. Users should be made aware of the risks, although I doubt it will make any difference to them. They will keep on smoking because they are hooked.

The grandkids made it home from the long drive from Texas. When they got here it was heavy fog but they said they could see in front of the car so that was good. Glad they got here safely and with the new baby. That is a very long trip and it is best to take two days to do it rather than wear yourself out trying to make it in one day. My brother, who was a trucker, could do it, but not us.

It has been several miserable weekends the past few weeks so for those who aren't done with their Christmas shopping and they will have a decent weekend to finish up. A lot of the snow and ice has melted because we haven't had wind for a number of days which is very unusual. It gives the sun a chance to melt the ice.

New York's Philharmonic Orchestra will make a historic trip to North Korea in February, it has announced. Orchestra president Zarin Mehta said it would play in the capital Pyongyang on February 26.

Mr. Mehta said he had spent six days in Pyongyang in October looking into concert venues and making other arrangements for the trip.

Vancouver's Vanished Women

The story of serial killer, Robert Pickton, will haunt Canada for decades to come. Found guilty by a Vancouver court of murdering six women, he is charged with the killing of a further 20. The women are among dozens who disappeared in the l980s and l990s from Downtown Eastside in Vancouver, a district famed as "Canada's poorest postcode". For years, police refused to open murder cases, labeling the women simply as missing. No charges were pressed against the 57 year old pig farmer until February 2002, when police stumbled across some of the women's possessions while searching his property for firearms. When they began examining outhouses and sifting deep through the soil on the 10 acre farm, they found blood stained clothes and pieces of human bone and teeth, amassing enough evidence to charge him with 26 murders. Some of the bodies had been fed to the pigs.

Caesareans May Harm Lung Growth

Babies born by elective Caesarean section are much more likely to develop breathing problems according to a Danish study examining 34,000 deliveries. Researchers found they were up to four times more likely to have respiratory problems than those born naturally, or by emergency Caesarean section. The babies may miss out on hormonal and physiological changes during labor which help mature the lungs, they say. In the UK, almost a quarter of the births are now estimated to be Caesarean sections, far above the 10% to 15% rate recommended by the World Health Organization.

Military and Commercial Aircraft Sales Slower

Sales of military and commercial aircraft by U.S. manufacturers are forecast to grow at a slower rate next year, an industry group said on Thursday. The Aerospace Industries Association's annual report forecasts sales by Boeing Co., Lockheed Martin Corp. and others to rise, on average, by about 6 percent to more than $210.6 billion, with commercial planes, engines and other parts leading the way in 2008. The association estimates that 2007 sales climbed 8.5 percent to $198.8 billion. That figure includes $92.5 billion in sales to foreign customers, an increase of $7 billion, or 8.8 percent, from last year's $85 billion, driven by higher demand for commercial aircraft.

Atlantis Space Shuttle Has Problems

NASA called off Thursday's launch of space shuttle Atlantis after two fuel gauges in its big external tank failed to work properly, a recurring problem since the Columbia disaster. Shuttle managers said the next launch attempt would be no earlier than Saturday. Preliminary indications were that the problem might be with an open circuit rather than the gauges themselves, perhaps a spliced line or bad connector, which would be easier to fix. Mission managers decided to forgo a launch attempt today to give engineers more time to resolve the trouble. Because of poor sun angles and computer concerns NASA would have to wait until the beginning of January to launch Atlantis and the European Space Agency's space station lab, Columbus, if the mission isn't underway by next Thursday or Friday.

Jamaal Tinsley Happy To Be Alive

That was the Indiana Pacers guard's mindset 36 hours after being shot at with an assault weapon in front of a downtown Indianapolis hotel. He was not injured.

The newest member of Led Zeppelin was given the honor of kicking off the band's reunion Monday night, pounding out the beat before the surviving founders joined in on "Good Times Bad Times." After the lights went down at London's 02 Arena, newsreel footage of a 1973 performance in Tampa, Florida, was projected on stage. With thousands of fans worked into a frenzy, drummer Jason Bonham, son of the late John Bonham, began thumping the skittering beat, soon to be joined by guitarist, Jimmy Page,bassist-keyboardist John Paul Jones and singer Robert Plant.

The disgraced Atlanta quarterback might be out by summer of 2009. Michael Vick was sentenced to up to 23 months in prison Monday for running a dogfighting operation.

Although Vick said he accepted responsibility for his actions, U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson said he wasn't so sure.

It is a beautiful winter today. This is about the 5th day that we have not had wind. That is very very unusual. It is actually pleasant to be outside today.

We aren't supposed to get snow now for awhile so that will be really nice.

Four Generations

We took pictures on Thanksgiving of our four generations - me, my daughter, grandaughter and great grandaughter. Those pictures are very special. We also took pictures of my husband, son-in-law, his son-in-law and the baby. Plus they took several family pictures too and they all turned out really well. They are keepsakes. My husband never knew any of his grandparents because he was #11 in a family of 12 and the grandparents were all dead by the time he came along. That is really sad. Grandparents are a blessing and so are all the grandchildren and children.

MS is a terrible debilitating disease. My sister-in-law suffered in a wheel chair for 25 years with it. Now they have found that adding antibiotics to standard drug therapy may slow down the progress of multiple sclerosis according to the latest research. Patients showed fewer symptoms and fewer signs of tissue damage when they took the antibiotic doxycyline alongside the MS drug beta interferon. Louisiana State University researchers believe the antibiotic may block the action of enzyme that destroy certain cells in the nervous system. The stud involves 15 patients and can be checked at the website of Archives of Neurology.

Stocks Fall Despite US Rate Cut

European stock markets are down following US and Asian falls, which came despite yesterday's US rate cut. The Fed's cut from 4.5% to 4.25% had been expected by the markets but many of them were hoping for a bigger reduction to help them out. The Federal Reserve also warned about the intensification of the housing correction and some softening in business and consumer spending. I've heard people are more worried about money and doing more shopping for Christmas at discount stores rather than high end stores, so this makes a difference too.

Heart Attacks for Christmas?

Did you know that the holidays bring on heart attacks? December and January are the deadliest months for heart disease, and many of the things that make the season merry are the culprits. These are rich meals, more alcohol and all that extra stress. But what may make the Christmas heart attack more deadly than the same size heart attack during the summer or any other month, is the double dose of denial. It is not uncommon for people to initially shrug off chest pain as indigestion. Research suggests they are even more reluctant for a run to the ER when it means disrupting a holiday party or gathering, or if they have traveled to a strange city which means they arrived there sick.


Skateboarding has become quite the sport. Our grandson is very good at it and made movies of himself and a friend doing all kinds of tricks with their skateboards. I think it is really great that they have made parks for the young people to use their skateboards and become quite professionally talented at all the tricks they can do. I don't know how they keep from falling and breaking bones, but they don't and it is really good exercise and fun to watch.

Crockpot Cooking

Have a wonderful roast going in the crockpot today. First I salt it with onion salt and garlic salt all over. Then I brown it on all sides to seal in the juices. I put about 2 1/2 cups of water in the crockpot and put both salts in it to taste, stirring well. Add the roast on low about 9 am. Then at noon I turn it on high and about 2 pm I add carrots and one or two large onions. About 4 pm, I add potatoes and by 5 pm it is ready. Take out the roast and slice it thin with electric knife. Dish up the carrots, onions and potatoes and pour the juice into a large sauce pan. Thicken it to your liking with flour disolved in water and you have a feast fit for a king. Add some fruit, pickles and whatever to the table and you are all set with very little work. The leftovers make wonderful roast beef sandwiches if you have any left over.

Brad Pitt - Eco-Friendly Homes

Brad Pitt expects the foundations to be built for at least 150 eco-friendly homes in New Orleans' Lower 9th Ward b the end of next summer. He says he is hoping they can expand here and expand over into the rest of New Orleans. The 43 year old actor gave an interview on NBC's "Today" show as he walked through the devastated neighborhood. The initiative, called Make It Right, is Pitt's latest effort to help the area recover from Hurricane Katrina. Pitt has also worked with the environmental organization Global Green USA to build five single family homes and an 18 unit apartment complex and community center; earlier this year. He and Angelina Jolie purchased a mansion in the city's French Quarter for $3.5 million. Pitt ha pledged $5 million of his own money toward the project and calling himself "not much of a salesman" was campaigning for more donations for the cause.

Rose Bowl Game

It will be a traditional matchup after all for the Rose Bowl. Southern California is going back to Pasadena for New Year's Day for the third straight year, and fourth time in the last five seasons. The Trojans will play Illinois, which made it back to the Rose Bowl for the first time since l983 after Ohio State earned a spot in the national championship game. Coach Ron Zook said if you are a competitor, you want to play the best and obviously, this is one of the best teams in the country, so we will have our hands full and indeed the Illini will.

Diabetes is a hormone disorder that can cause problems with the kidneys, legs and feet, eyes, heart, nerves and blood flow. If left untreated, these problems can lead to kidney failure, gangrene and amputation, blindness or stroke. Diabetes is on the increase, probably because people are living longer, getting fatter and leading increasingly inactive lifestyles. There are two types of diabetes, Type 1 and Type 2. If you are overweight and do little exercise, it is a good time to get your blood glucose checked. More children are now being found with Type 2 diabetes and it was once an "old" person's disease.

Credit Card Applications

Students heading off to school find they need to have at least one credit card. From what I have heard, they are bombarded by people on campus trying to sign them up to all kinds of high interest credit cards and many are taken in by them. Well now they can go onto the Internet before they leave for school and go to this website Credit Card Applications and search through many credit cards online. They have a huge variety with varying rewards, cash back offers and various interest rates. Even if they have bad credit, they will be able to find a credit card for them. This is the place to search and get the best credit card deal today.

Brain Wiring Link to Paedophilia

Scans have shown that paedophilia may be the result of faulty connections in the brain. researchers used sophisticated MRI scans to compare the brains of paedophiles and non-sexual criminals. Paedophiles had significantly less of a substance called "white matter", responsible for wiring the different parts of the brain together. The study, by the the Center for Addition and Mental Health in Toronto, appears in the Journal of Psychiatry Research. The study follows work by Yale University which uncovered the differences in the thought patterns of paedophiles.

1918 Killer Flu Came From Birds

I didn't know that but the Spanish flu virus that killed up to 50 million people in l918-19 was probably a strain that originated in birds. US scientists have found the 1918 virus shares genetic mutations with the bird flu virus now circulating in Asia. Writing in Nature, they say their work underlines the threat the current strain poses to humans worldwide. A second paper in Science reveals another US team has successfully recreated the 1918 virus in mice. The virus is contained at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention under stringent safety conditions. It is hoped to carry out experiments to further understand the biological properties that made the virus so virulent.

Honda Radiator

What a terrible feeling it is to see steam rising from the front of your car and realize your radiator is leaking. What do you do now? Do you call the nearest place for a radiator, not knowing whether it is going to be a good one or just a cheap one? Now you can go onto the Internet to Honda Radiator and be sure you are getting a high quality radiator with a great guarantee. They have warehouses all over, so they can tell you where their nearest distribution center is and you can have one in no time. It is very important that you get a good dependable radiator and this company is a family run business and they can get a radiator to you as fast as the same day sometimes. That takes a lot of stress and worry out of getting a new radiator. It doesn't matter if you are a customer or a business, they will get those radiators to you quickly.

Ice, Snow and Sleet

We got a bunch of what they call "corn snow" around this part of the country. Then it was sleet, then freezing rain, then snow, then sleet, etc. We got about 2-3" of the stuff and everything is like an ice rink. Roads are all iced over and driving is very hazardous. Cars are in the ditches. Our landlord came this morning with his skidloader and cleared our driveway. We tried with shovels and the snowblower but the snowblower just rolled up over the top of it. Sure glad we have such a good landlord.

Ehud Olmert Warns of the End of Israel

Israel's Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has said failure to negotiate a two-state solution with the Palestinians would spell the end of the State of Israel. He warned of a South African-style struggle which Israel would lose if a Palestinian state was not established. He was returning from the Annapolis conference in the US where he and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas pledged to launch formal peach talks.

Snow Storm

Sounds like a big snow storm is on the way. But I do not like it that they are talking about freezing rain first. If we get freezing rain and then snow on top of it, all the flowers will freeze out. Sometimes the grass even freezes out in place. That is not good. Last I heard they were talking 6 inches of snow as the worst case scenario. That does not sound good at all and on the weekend when everyone wants to go shopping after working all week. Sure hope it goes north and south of us. It has done that in years past.

Optics Planet

It is time to get going and get that Christmas list made out if you have not already done so. I have been on the Internet and I found this great website sunglasses that has something for everyone. My nephew is into stargazing and they have the best telescopes on the market, Meade and Celestron. And my brother, the hunter could really use a new scope for his rifle and they have the best rifle scopes available anywhere. I think some night vision goggles would be just the thing for my son and my daughter, the sun bather, would definitely love some great new sunglasses and they are having a great blowout sale on them. The have a great selection of name brands and since she needs prescription sunglasses, they have those too. I know my husband would love some new Bushnell binoculars too. All I need to do is get online and fill out my list at this one website. They have the best optics in their online store and they give you free UPS ground shipping for your order. No fighting the crowds and freezing in line at stores. Saves gas too.

Cuba to Have National Elections

Cuba announced that it has set January 20, for national elections that are part of the process of determining whether ailing leader, Fidel Castro, continues as president. The ruling, signed by interim leader, Raul Castro, and read on state television, set the date for elections to provincial and national assemblies, voting that is held every five years. There was no explicit mention of Fidel Castro, but the 81 year old leader of the Cuban Revolution must be re-elected to the national parliament before he could repeat as president of the Council of State to remain in full power.

These make great cars for students heading off to school, multi-car families with teenage children who don't want to rid a bus anymore, and they have well trained mechanics and great customer service.

Grotto Linked to Rome's Mythical Founder

Tuesday archaeologists unveiled an underground grotto believed to have been revered by ancient Romans as the place where a wolf nursed the city's legendary founder Romulus and his twin brother Remus. That sounds interesting. Do you think there could be anything to it? The vaulted sanctuary, decorated with seashells and colored marble, is buried 52 feet inside the Palatine hill, the palatial center of power in imperial Rome. This is like reading a myth from Greek mythology.

Identity Theft

A former police officer who stole his dead cousin's identity to get on the force will not go to prison but must leave the country, according to a judge in Milwaukee. This man, age 25 was charged in federal court with falsely representing himself as an American citizen after an anonymous tip led the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to him. He was arrested May 31 and agreed to a plea deal about two weeks later. He did not fight the deportation and says he plans to live with relatives in Mexico and study computer engineering.

Diet, Diabetes, Dietician

Today I went to the dietician. It was quite different than I expected. She gave me lots of information on Type 2 diabetes and carbohydrates. I have been busy checking labels and writing down every thing I eat now at each meal and counting the carbs. It is surprising what is free and what you least expect is quite high. I am glad most meat is good to eat as the doctor said I should eat as much red meat as possible to keep my anemia under control.

Trent Lot is Going to Resign From Congress

We heard yesterday that Trent Lot is planning to resign his Senate seat after 35 years in Congress. I believe he was a really good man and we hate to see him leave. He has chosen his successor to fill in until the next election. He is the 6th Senate Republican this year to announce retirement.

Veterans Memorial

They are working toward putting up a Veterans Memorial in my husband's hometown and his name will be on it. I put in the application a couple of months ago and it will be awhile yet before they are ready to start putting it together. His older brothers should be on it too but they are both dead and there is no one to apply to have their names put on it since you need a copy of your DD214 release from the service in order to qualify. That is really too bad.

Prostate Cancer and PSA Tests

Every man over 50 should have a PSA test. They are finding younger and younger men with prostate cancer. If you are under 70, they recommend surgery. If you are over 70, they recommend hormone shots or radiation or you can decide to just let it go and you will probably die of something totally different. My husband took 42 radiation treatments in 2000 and now his PSA is up higher than it was then and they are talking another blood test in 3 months and if it is still high, hormone shots. Don't take a chance with your life. See a urologist men.

Diabetes and Diet

I am going to see a someone at the hospital tomorrow to tell me about diabetes diets. They say my glucose is just a bit too high and I need to diet and exercise more for the next three months and then have another blood test. I have increased my exercise quite a lot and lost some weight already and cut out the sweets almost entirely so hoping the next blood test will be a good one.

It's Saturday

Today is Saturday. Thanksgiving is over. The major Black Friday sales are over and it's time to start planning for a late Thanksgiving tomorrow at our daughter's home. Our new little great granddaughter will be there and we will get to see her in person for the very first time. We are excited. It is hard to believe another generation has begun already. Time really flies.


We have purchased many cars in our lifetime and therefore, we have had a great many car loans to finance the purchase of the cars. We found that not all loans are equal. The interest rates on some of those the car dealer offers you are outrageous and will keep you in debt for a long long time. The size of the payments differs too. So we figured it was about time we looked into Loans at this site online loans. We found them to be very helpful and informative. It was interesting to find out about Unsecured loans as well as, Homeowner loans and we found a fund of information and news about credit cards and insurance too. Our mortgage is quite high so we sorted out information about a new mortgage and found them to be most helpful. No matter what your loan situation may be, I feel they will be able to help you get a wise and successful loan.

Polygamist Sect Leader Sentenced

A judge sentenced a polygamous sect leader Tuesday to five years to life in prison for his role in the arranged marriage of teenage cousins. Warren Jeffs, age 51, was convicted of two counts of rape as an accomplice for his role in the marriage of a 14 year old follower and her 19 year old cousin in 2001. The sentences are to be served consecutively. It will be up to the Utah parole boards to decide just how long he stays behind bars. The average sentence served for such a crime as this in Utah is 7 years.

Suspect in Slaying of Student Arrested

German police on Tuesday arrested a fugitive wanted in the sex slaying of a British college student in Italy. They arrested an African man whose fingerprints had been found at the bloody scene of the sordid crime that has gripped Italians. Hours later, another man was freed from jail, where he had been held after being accused of the stabbing by yet another suspect, the victim's 20 year old American roomate. I am glad they caught him.

Help Ease The Pain

This is my younger brother.He needs to check into this online website for Freeze It to find relief. For three years of his life, he delivered motorhomes all over the 48 states, bumping along all kinds of roads, both good and bad. Then he drove semis delivering all kinds of products all over the United States, bouncing on the seats, shaking every muscle and bone in his body. When it was snowing, he had to climb way down out of those big trucks and he isn't very tall and he would slip on the ice and snow and often fall and bang up his knees, shins and pull every muscle, or so it felt like. He also hauled corn in for farmers from the field during several Octobers and Novembers the past few years, walking over rough ground to roll the tarps back and forth on top of the semis and while walking, hurting his feet and knees with every step. Not to mention the strain on arms and muscles, rolling those tarps. Now he is pretty much retired but he has had to have his one knee replaced and eventually the other one. Every step is a painful one and he uses a cane for assistance.Winning a lot of Freese It gel would go a long ways to aleviating his continual pain. To revlieve his painful movements, he needs Freeze It Gel. It is a great help to those, like my brother, who have trouble sleeping because they ache all over. By using Freeze It, it would relieve his persistant pain and discomfort and he could get good nights of sleep. It is also wonderful for arthritis and he has plenty of that from his job as semi driver riding the rough roads in those rough cabs.I know if he had a generous supply of Freeze It, he could surely put it to very good use on all his aching joints,muscles and back. It may save him some trips to the chiropractor by giving him the relief he needs.

e-waste Still Ends up in China

The air smells acrid from the squat gas burners that sit outside homes, melting wires to recover copper and cooking computer motherboards to release gold. Migrant workers in filthy clothes smash picture tubes by hand to recover glass and electronic parts, releasing as much as 6.5 pounds of lead dust. For five years, environmentalists and the media have highlighted the danger to Chinese workers who dismantle much of the world's junked electronics. The problem isn't getting better, it is getting worse.

An unspecified number were wounded in the blaze, which did not disrupt gas supplies. National oil company Saudi Aramco said the fire broke out just after midnight while contract workers were linking a new pipe to the line during mainenance work.

NASCAR Driver Jimmie Johnson

Jimmie Johnson, totally calm and cool, left the pre-race drivers' meeting Sunday afternoon flashing the peace sign at people wishing him luck. Two fingers - two straight championships. He became the first driver to win consecutive championships since Jeff Gordon in l997 and l998, wrapping up the title by finishing a trouble free seventh in the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Matt Kenseth won the race. When it was over Jimmie and crew chief, Chad Knaus were already thinking about a third.

Moving Relocation Services

Once the place of your move is settled and the packing has begun, you need a good reliable mover. Sometimes, sadly to say, some movers are in business one week and gone another so you don't want to take chances with your precious possessions with just anyone.

Well the last of the flowers bit the dust this week. The Mums always hold out the longest and look so beautiful when everything has frozen off. But now they are frozen too and we have to wait till late next year to enjoy them again. We had snow flurries yesterday so that is a warning of things to come. I heard there is a very big snow storm heading for Denver for Thanksgiving. They are predicting it may go south of us. I sure hope so.

Email Photos

The email photos are flying thru syberspace of the new grandbabies. It is so neat to be able to get newborn pictures of the new great grandbabies in 2 other states when you can't get there to see them in person. The grandparents were able to travel to both states to spend a week with both of them, hold and cuddle them. I think that is really great. They will hate to come home and leave them again but their little dog is waiting for them here. She will be very glad to see them and then they will be busy preparing for Thanksgiving.

Wall Fountains

I love water fountains. They are so soothing and peaceful to just sit and watch. This online website Wall Fountain has wall fountains you can just hang on the wall, add water, plug in and enjoy. They also have beautiful waterfalls to put outside your home in your yard or garden. In addition, they have water fountains you can put out in your garden also or anywhere you can see and enjoy them. They ship UPS and you see a great variety of styles on their site and discounted prices.

Korea to Launch Train Service

North and South Korea agreed to launch cross-border rail service for the first time in more than half a century. The latest sign of improving relations between the two sides has been this decision. The rail's Dec. 11 opening will also mark one of the first tangible results of a summit last month between South Korea and North Korea. The freight transport will have trains running along a 16 mile track across the heavily armed frontier.

It is always a good idea to have plenty of first aid and medical supplies at home just in case of accident. This online website home medical is the place to get all your medical supplies at a decent price. They have all the diabetic supplies and even baby supplies and exercise equipment.

Honey Roasted Peanuts

Do you like Honey Roasted Peanuts I really do. My husband won't eat them at all. He thinks they are too sweet. He likes the Planters regular salted peanuts and does not like the dry roasted nuts either. Says they are too hard, or not a good flavor or not enough salt. I don't eat many peanuts but I do like the Honey Roasted and of course, the double dipped chocolate peanuts can't be beat.

The Des Moines Register Newspaper

We really like the Des Moines Register, especially because they have a better sports section than our local newspaper. Our nephew is now delivering this paper and he gives us all his daily papers as we only take the Sunday Register. We trade off giving him the Hawkeye News which he really enjoys so we both get a lot of enjoyment out of reading the newspapers. Time for bed, Holly is already in bed. She lets me know.

Booking a Last Minute Hotel

There is nothing worse than planning out all the details of your vacation and then having everything spoiled because you couldn't get a hotel room. You plan your flights, car rentals, even tickets to events and just imagine that getting a hotel room will be no problem. But that is where we went wrong. We had the trip all planned and when it came time to get a room in a hotel, they were having a convention in town and every possible room was reserved and a few were waiting in line hoping for a cancellation. Well, I won't let that happen again now that I know about this online website Last Minute Hotel Rooms. They are a real life saver and they have a great many good deals on discounts on hotel rooms, depending on what month you plan to travel. I found out I could even get a room reserved as late as the day of departure and as much as 70 percent off the cost of the room. Now that is what I call a really good deal. And they are dependable. They do what they say. They get you the room you want, where you want it and you won't be in for any unpleasant surprises when you get there. They have a form right online so that you can fill out the date of your arrival, how many rooms you require, how many people and they will tell you right there what it will cost. I believe this is a wonderful site to arrange for a short break in London or the place of your choosing and save money making a reservation with them. They also have gift certificates and this time of the year would be a great time to get gift certificates for your family or close friends that they can go and stay in a hotel on a break of their own.

Buritos and Tacos

We went to Taco Tico today and had their Taco Burgers. They are so good and I took home 6 of their buritos because they make great quick lunches. Then we went out to supper in the next town for Mexican and I had a Taco Salad and my husband had three tacos. They have very good fresh food on Wednesday and Thursday nights. The wind is terrible tonight though and you had to be really careful passing farm groves and also on curves. It is about 40 mph and isn't letting up any.

Orlando Hotels

Orlando is a wonderful place to visit as it has so many theme parks, golfing, swimming in the ocean not too far away.

They will also have a rental car waiting for you and if you are a golfer, there are many beautiful golf courses jusst a few minutes drive from the hotel. You can also go for a swim in the ocean by driving only about 40 miles from Orlando. Check out this site. They will set you up with dining and theater tickets too. It is an all around website for the finest reservations for your vacation.


We went shopping at Wal-Mart today. I love to shop there as their prices are so good and I believe the quality of their clothing and most everything is very good. I bought a bunch of cereal a lot cheaper than in our little town. My husband got 3 new long sleeve dress shirts for church and the winter wear. Also two turtleneck sweaters too. We got a good big piece of plastic to put under my computer chair so it doesn't wear out the carpet. It was beginning to look that way.

Our Car

Our car is so dirty, I really need to run it through the car wash but now they say we are going to have spotty showers all day today so might as well forget that. They have a new car/truck wash in town that is so easy to drive in and out and it does a terrific job of cleaning any vehicle. The big doors are for semis and motorhomes. I see alot of people using it and using the vacuums too to vacuum out their vehicle. It is a great addition to the town and I love to go there to wash the car.

Up to 2,000 metric tons of oil have leaked into the Black Sea after a Russian oil tanker split in half. It came apart after it was smashed by 67 mph winds and high waves. Four other ships sank in the storm and some of them were carrying dangerous cargos. The tanker's 13 crew members were rescued after several hours.

Broadway Stagehands Go On Strike

Broadway stagehands have gone on strike in New York City. They have shut down more than 20 shows including The Lion King and Mamma Mia. These folks are responsible for moving all the scenery around and the equipment and they have set up picket lines at the theaters. No new talks are scheduled and it is unclear how long this strike will last. What a disappointment to the people who have perhaps traveled on their vacation just to see some broadway shows.

Texas - Here They Come

Next week our daughter and her husband will be taking off for Texas to see their 2nd new grandbaby in 2 weeks. Their twins got married a week apart 2 years ago and now they are both having babies and little Emry is late in arriving. But by the time they get to Texas he will be here and I bet we will be seeing his picture on the computer in the email. I am anxious to see him.

Cars, Pickups, SUV

They have a rule where we live that you can only have 2 vehicles. The guy next door has two cars and two pickups. The people next to them have 2 trucks and a car. We are the only one with a garage and I am sure glad of that because they seemd to have all those vehicles moving all the time. I don't know how they afford the gasoline for all of them.

HD Professional Stock Videos

There are a great many professionals looking for High Definition stock footage. This company has made it its business to become the place where they can come to get this footage here HD Professional Stock Videos. Production companies, advertising agencies and documentary filmmakers are only a few of those professionals looking for High Definition stock footage. They buy all the clips royalty free so those buying them can use them anywhere in the world. It is no wonder that those looking for such footage come to them for it. Cinematographers while filming out in the field, have lots more footage left over after they have chosen what they are going to use. This makes for a good market for them and extra income.

Worship Music and Dance

The seminar at our church also covered waving of various colors of flags during morning song worship. It is really neat to see people waving these flags and walking down the aisles or standing in one place waving them in different patterns. It is really quite a beautiful sight to see and another form of worship.

Art and Dance in Church

We had a seminar at church a couple of weeks about art and dance in church and I have to admit I was pretty sceptical but it turned out to be a very good thing. The Holy Spirit gives people ideas of something to draw and it has a meaning behind it. The colors they use each have a meaning and when the pictures are done, they tell what they meant to that person who drew it. And often there is someone in the church audience that the picture just speaks to and it is meant for them. Kind of hard to explain but it is really great.

Options Trading Software

If you are lucky enough to have stock options from your employer, then you also know that you need to know something about them or you could lose some money with them. I would advise you to go to options trading software for advice as they have the software that you can use. You can analyze, find and compare over 270,000 options all in one place. They have the information to find the best trades. They have a terrific guarantee. If you don't make money, then you pay them. They will also give you a free 14 day trial. What more could you ask for?

Time Change

How do you like the time change? I wish they would leave it alone. I messed up my alarm clock and got the time set for PM when it should have been AM hours and my alarm didn't go off this morning but my little dog, Holly, woke me up at the right time because she needed to go outside. I have the clock set right now, believe me.


Pass the aspirin, Tylenol, or whatever you use when you are trying to get your computer to do what you want it to. They can be a curse or a blessing, depending on how well the work for you. This little old laptop is doing really great for me. I finally got the lid set so the color is great. For awhile there I could hardly read the print.

Online Payday Advance

You know how hard it can be sometimes inbetween paychecks. You pay all the bills and there is nothing left over for groceries sometimes or gasoline. You need help, but what do you do? You can go to online payday advance and get the money quickly and easily. In just 3 steps, online, you can have the money you need. They have proven themselves to be very trustworthy and consumers are very happy to deal with them. When they have a no hassle signup, it really helps and their customer service is excellent. It is fast and the money is deposited right into your checking or savings account and payments are taken out the same way on payday or right after payday or you can choose to pay it off in full.


Computers can be a real headache. My tower quit working, froze up and then stopped altogether so now I am working with a laptop for the time being. My brother came over today with his friend and they brought another tower, 3 keyboards, and 2 monitors. He plugged in everything every which way and oh, yes, 2 extra mouse. Nothing worked so here I am on the laptop.

My Brother's Birthday

My brother's birthday was yesterday and we sent him a couple of cards a day apart for the fun of it. The second one contained 4 scratch off lottery tickets. He won $2 on one of them so he took it to the store and played pull tabs with it and won $20.50. So that turned into quite a nice birthday present, didn't it? He sure had fun.


We just went to a wedding a few weeks ago and there is so much detail to planning a beautiful wedding. It takes a lot at first to choose the dress and then the bridesmaids dresses and then the tuxedos for the guys. Now wedding planning can be made a great deal easier by going to wedding where they have everything from dresses to a guest registry where they can register for what they would like as gifts. They have all the local vendors and there is alot to choosing the menu so they can be a great deal of help. They also have a place online to find bands, florist, photographers and also they have an abundance of ideas for you. They also can help you with gifts for the people in your wedding. Look them up. It is a great website.


I can hear barking as I write this. The big black lab next door probably saw our neighbor walking her little dog. Our little dog is scared of him as he is so much bigger but the lab is so lovable. I go next door and pet him and play with him every chance I get. We used to have 2 black labs like that and they were the best dogs and so good with kids.

US to Help Turkey Combat Rebels

President George W. Bush has promised extra help to tackle Kurdish rebels in northern Iraq, following talks with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Mr. Bush offered to share intelligence with Turkey and declared the PKK rebel organization an enemy of Turkey, a free Iraq and the United States. Turkey has threatened to hit bases used by the PKK (Kurdistan Worker's Party) unless the US and Iraq do more to help.


Sounds funny doesn't it? Headhunters - the first time I heard that word I couldn't figure out what they were talking about. I was new in Personnel and it was a new word for me. I found out that they use headhunters and that they are recruiters who recruit suitable people for the company because the Human Resource Manager is often so very busy with other Personnel problems and matters of importance. By using headhunters they are able to have this company find them the suitable employee and match them to the company and the job. Their recruiters have a great deal of experience themselves in a number of different fields so they are well able to recruit for other companies. This company has a very good reputation for making good matches of new employees to the job openings.

There are at least 2,000 people in the UK who pose a threat to national security because of their support for terrorism. Jonathan Evans, said there had been a rise of 400 since November 2006. He said children as young as 15 were being recruited for terrorist-related activity by al-Qaeda.Resources that could be devoted to counter-terrorism, were instead being used to protect the UK against spying by Russia, China, and others, he said.

If you are carrying two genes linked to epilepsy, it may actually make you less likely to have a seizure. This is according to some US researchers. Those who have more than one gene defect might be expected to be more prone to illness, but experts found the reverse to be true. Baylor College of Medicine team reported its findings in the Nature Neuroscience journal, after carrying out its research on mice.

Gas Prices

Gas Prices are rising fast here. It is up to $2.999 here but then I haven't been uptown since Wednesday and wouldn't be surprised if it is over $3.00 now. I have alot of errands to run today so I grouped them altogether for the last few days and will go from place to place in such a way to save the most gasoline. American has plenty of oil but the environmentalists won't let them drill for it. I heard the other day that Cuba is drilling at an angle into our oil reserves off shore. We should be using that oil, not them.

New Tires

We got 4 new tires so we are all set for winter. They had over 70,000 miles on them so they were good tires to begin with. They were Firestone and no matter what all the troubles were that Firestone had with their tires, the ones we had on our car were excellent. This time we got some Cooper tires as they are a name brand around here with 80,000 guaranteed mileage for them so they will last a very long time as we don't drive as much as we used to. It's good to have a good tread on your tires in slippery, snowy weather like we have in this area, so we are all prepared.

The Mom's are just now arriving to pick up their little ones. My neighbor is really great with kids so I know they are in good hands.

Goldfinch are Back!

The Goldfinch are back in big flocks. They are covering all 3 of our feeders and it looks like it is the young ones. They have lost most of their beautiful yellow color now and they say that happens in the fall. They all get to look like the females, kind of plain. It mustbe natures way of protecting them in the fall when they go south. It is sure fun to see them all again. The Monarch butterflies are all gone and the hummingbirds and the Goldfinch will leave soon too. Snow flurries have been showing up here and there.

Libyan Islamists Join al-qaeda

A group of Libyan Islamists have joined al-Qaeda according to an audio message on the internet that was attributed to the radical network's second in command. Ayman al-Zawahri supposedly said the Fighting Islamic Group in Libya was becoming part of al-Qaeda. A recorded message called on Islamists to topple North African, as well as, Palestinian leaders. This is a bad group folks, and we are not immune in this country either. We better stay alert. It is scary.

Writers Strike Has Started

The US screenwriters' union has begun its strike which will seriously affect the late night television talk shows. The Writers Guild of America as asked its 12,000 members to stop working and set up picket lines as of yesterday. They intereviwed some of them on television and they want more cash for work which goes on new media such as DVD's or online. Late night shows are expected to be re-runs till this is settled. Last time it lasted 22 weeks I think it was.

Frigidaire Refrigerators

There are so many new styles of ranges out now and mine is getting so old, I would like to replace it. I love Frigidaire Ranges but I wasn't sure where there was a dealer who carried them. My neighbor suggested I go online to Frigidaire Ranges. This is a great search engine that has generated over 275 million pages of relevant local search results. Now that was just what I needed. They have it broken down by category and all I had to look up was "ranges" and I found just what I was looking for. I got the information on the closest store in our area and it wasn't far so we took off right away and went and looked over their stock. We chose the one that best fitted our home and our family and had it delivered to our home and installed. I am so glad my neighbor had experience with this website because it sure saved us a lot of time and money and gasoline.

Condoleeza Rice Urges Middle East Peace Deal

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has said that a two state solution between Israel and the Palestinians is now needed more urgently than ever. She urged Arab states to accept a peaceful and permanent home for Israel. Israel has said there can be no deal for a Palestinian state unless its own security is guaranteed. Ms Rice is in the region to prepare the ground for a planned peace conference in the US later this month, but she is not ready to set a date yet for the conference.


Cataracts can steal your sight but it is wonderful today that they have doctors who can perform surgery to remove them and restore your sight again by putting a new little lense in your eyes. My husband has had both eyes operated on now and today he goes for his last checkup. Then he will be able to order new glasses. Mainly the glasses will be for reading but he has very light sensitive eyes so he will have photogray put in them so that they change color inside and out to protect his eyes from bright sunlight. It is quite bright today too but very cold and the wind makes it feel even colder.


I like a company that rewards me for buying from them. This is a company webloyalty that does that. They generate new revenues for their clients because they give the client's customers a great range of valuable benefits packages. A happy customer will buy more and their clients will make more money at the same time. They have a great Reservation Rewards service that gives us money saving discounts on shopping and dining - two big things in my life. Not only that but I can print off coupons and save even more. I can save up to 50% at retailers and they have as many as 44,000 discount offers to go through. I love the Shoppers Discounts too as I can save money on top online retailers for just about anything I could wish for so I know I am getting great merchandise and not junk. This company is dedicated to marketing responsibly, and over 2 million subscribers enjoy savings from their services. In 2005, they made a deal with General Atlantic LLC who has about $10 billion in capital and has invested in over 150 companies in approximately 50 companies. They can help your business grow substantially.

After a suspicious device was found in the lorry of a worker, the largest nuclear power plant in the US has been put in "lockdown". This incident happened at the Palo Verde site in Wintersburg, about 30 miles west of Phoenix, Arizona. The contract worker has been detained and is being questioned.

US Economy Sees Surprise Growth

I heard today that the Feds dropped the interest rate a quarter of a percent in hopes of stopping the foreclosures of homes. People will be able to get home loans for less and hopefully, more of them will go out and get home loans. The economy grew, however, at its fastest rate in 1 1/2 years this summer. The US economy grew at an annualized rate of 3.9% between July and September in spite of the housing market downturn and the global credit squeeze. This is good news.

Baby is Coming

We got an email that our grandaughter went to the hospital early this morning about 3 am and she was in labor. She was supposed to be started today if she didn't have the baby on her own. So now we are waiting anxiously for the call that the baby is here. Unlike most people today, they don't know what they are having so it will be a happy surprise also to learn if it is a little girl or boy. We haven't heard anything yet on our grandaughter-in-law but she is overdue too so who knows, maybe today too????

Blog of The Day

My daughter's blog made Blog of the Day today and that is exciting. The pictures is of their little dog, Zoe. She is such a cute and lovable dog. Every time we go there, we kind of have a routine where I pet her and she rolls all over and I rub her stomach and we do that until she is satisfied and then off she goes to see everyone else. She is potty trained by ringing a little bell at the door to go out. It's amazing.

Bedsheets and Blankets

Bedsheets and blankets and witches and goblins - is that the way the song goes? I don't think so but it is something like that. Today is Halloween and all the little kids in the neighborhood will be dressed up and will come to the door with their little pumpkin holders, bags and whatever to hold the candy. It's so much fun to see their costumes and our little dog won't know what to do. She will be excited I bet.

Prostate Cancer Diagnosed- Israel's Prime Minister

Israel's Prime Minister has prostate cancer. Ehud Olmert said he will have surgery for prostate cancer but he added it had been caught early and he would remain in office. He is 62 years of age, and has led Israel since 2006 when Ariel Sharon had a massive stroke that left him in a coma.

Evergreen Trees

The neighbor wrote some place and they sent him 8 little evergreen trees free.. The can't be more than 6" tall and he planted them all in a little row and put a high fence around them. They are supposed to be planted 12 feet apart so I would think he is going to have to transplant them all again next year and that could be quite a job to be sure you get the roots. He's not very well and it is quite a job for him to do anything out in the yard. I hope for his sake that they take hold and grow but it seems like it is the wrong time of year to plant them with snow on the way in the next month or so.

Oil Price Settles at Record High

We have all seen it at the gas pump and it sounds like the gas is going to keep rising. Not only that but our lights and heat are rising too. Yesterday oil prices rose to fresh highs due to a combination of the weak dollar, supply concerns in Mexico and continued tensions in northern Iraq. It hit $93.53 a barrel, a record price and it could go up even more. Some are talking $100 a barrel. This is not good with winter coming on too. People won't be traveling as much but they have to heat and light their homes in the winter.

Tylenol and Cough Syrup

Now my husband has not only had the flu from his flu shot, but now he has a cold on top of it. So I just got back from running to the local discount store for a huge bottle of generic tylenol and a couple bottles of cough syrup. I got the non-drowsy kind as it seems like everything you take makes you sleepy. Got the sheet blankets on the bed and he said they sure felt good when he took a nap. Fall has set in and winter is on the way.

Whether you are an individual looking for personalized doormats for yourself or for a house warming gift, then this is the website for you. You can purchase their personalized doormats in a variety of designs, shapes and materials. Personalized gifts do take more time to make but they are well worth it.You can be sure your satisfaction is guaranteed. Their vulcanized rubber mats and aluminum doormats are quite beautiful in design. But they also have a rubber water trapper doormat that would be great in bad weather. The cedar doormat is quite beautiful too and with your name on it would look really great by your entrance door. In fact you would probably want one for each door opening into your home.

A custom address plaque would be a wonderful addition to our home. You can express yourself through a design on your address signs, such as your favorite dog, cat, horse or many other choices. I would love to have a picture of our little dog, Holly, a Boston Terrier, on ours. They come in all shapes and sizes, even stone posts. A lighted plaque, or reflective one would work best where we live because people have trouble finding our home at night.

In addition, they have beautiful house signs that are not only ornamental but they are very important in identifying your home in case of emergency. Everyone should have a well designed address sign or house sign so that you can easily be located. Look into their site and you will find much more too.

Time Change

I thought it was the day for the time change. Spring forward, Fall back. I was wrong. I set all the clocks and then got ready for church. My husband was sick with the flu and wasn't going along. He said what if you are wrong? I haven't heard anything on the news about time change. It was right on the calendar though. Guess what? He was right. I was an hour late for church. Time changes end of November.


My brother told me about Bloggerwave and he told me I need to get online and sign up with them if I want to make money with my blog. That is surely what I want to do. It is fun writing on the blog but it would be nice to make money at the same time. So I signed up. This company is very good to blog for. I enjoy the jobs that they offer. If you want to make some money, get online and sign up with them too.
