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.

Used Cars Austin

If you are searching for a good used car, perhaps a second car to drive to work, or just a good car but you don't want to pay new prices, then check out Used Cars Austin. They are the largest pre-owned vehicle dealer in south Texas. It is easy to go to the Internet and check out their list of trucks and cars and see if you can find one that suits your needs. Chances are that you will find one of their locations near you and you can go down and look them over. They are anxious to get your trade-in too so make a deal with them and drive off in the car of your choice. 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.

Officials Rule Out Terrorism in Pipeline Blast

In Saudi Arabia,an accidental explosion and fire on a natural gas pipeline in the eastern part of the country killed 28 people and left 12 missing. 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. It is best to be sure you get a reputable mover to move your safely and securely to your new home. That is why it would be important to check into this online website Moving Relocation Services to be sure you get a good honest moving company. They have strict requirements for those applying to be listed with them so they make sure that you will have a stress-free move. They have also set up a system of taking care of any problems you might have with your move. They seldom happen but when they do, they will take care of it for you.


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.

Home Medical

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. The doctor told me to get more exercise so I am looking into their site for good exercise equipment. But I also had knee surgery and could use a shower chair and they have those too. They have over 55,000 products in 50 categories so you are sure to find whatever you need. Blood pressure monitors are very popular and great to have at home to keep track of your blood pressure. They have been around since l996 and have grown and added to their line of medical supplies. Check them out for nearly anything you could need.

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. There are so many hotels there and you want to be sure to get a good one so the best answer to that problem is to go to this online website orlando hotels and they will help you get the best hotel for the least money if you want to keep within your budget. They will get you close to Disney and all their theme parks and that isn't all they can do. They can help you set up a complete vacation package. They can also arrange your flights, all you need to do is tell them how many are in your party, ages, and when you want to go to Orlando and they will do the rest. 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.

Russian Oil Tanker Splits In Half

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.

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.

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.

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????
