This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Club House. All opinions are 100% mine.
It is Winter in our State and at this time of the year, we love to have the oven on or the crockpot cooking. A big juicy beef roast is my favorite with lots of carrots and onions. But best of all, we look forward to that big bowl of mashed potatoes with a wonderful gravy to top them. However, that isn't always the case, because sometimes there is not enough meat juice and the gravy needs some help to be really tasty.
Christmas is almost here and it is always a worry as to whether the gravy is going to turn out just right. So why not take the stress out of making the gravy by using Club House Gravy Mix? It is so easy and you are able to watch a gravy tips video and see just how to make great gravy every time.
Your family will love it when you bring this delicious gravy to the table every time, full of flavor for them to enjoy. You will not have all that unnecessary stress of worrying whether the gravy is going to come out right or not. In addition, here is your opportunity for a newsletter sign-up and contest entry to win a Club House Gravy Gift Pack. Be sure to get your entry in now and watch the video so your gravy will be one of the highlights of your Christmas dinner. You must live in Canada to sign up.

I wish we could do that too but I like being in my own home, own bed, own chair, etc. If it snows and blizzards, we are retired, so we can just watch it out the window and listen to the action on the police scanner.
We are thankful this Christmas that we have a new furnace and we are nice and warm. We will be meeting them and taking them out to our favorite restaurant for Mexican food. They look forward to this as it is their favorite too and there isn't a good Mexican restaurant where they live as yet.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Jones Soda. All opinions are 100% mine.If you are looking for a unique selections of sodas, then you should investigate Dungeons and Dragons Jones Soda. These are the sodas with rich flavors you won't find elsewhere. They would make great Christmas gifts in packs.
It is easy to order on line with fast delivery. Illithid Brain Drain is very interesting. I feel it may taste like a rich Blackberry soda. Bigby's Crushing Thirst Destroyer could be a Green Apple flavor and I'm guessing that Dwarven Draught may contain a strong rich pure mix of thirst quenching Berry? Then there is Sneak Attack. Could it be Rheindeer RootBeer? Or how about Potion of Healing, is it a Berry Lemonade mix?
Which flavor intrigues you? What do you think they would taste like? You know they will all be delicious and hard to set down once you have started drinking them. When it comes to quenching thirst in a flavorful and delightful way, they are the experts. These would make perfect Christmas gifts or gifts for all occasions for friends and members of your families. I know all my grandchildren would enjoy then immensely.

However, you can order various packs of a variety of flavors that are sure to please both you and those you are shopping for. Look into their website now on the Internet and place your order for delivery.

Our daughter is a twin. She has twins, a boy and a girl who are grown and married now. Two years ago, her twins made her a double grandmother within the short space of 13 days. Now they have done it again. She became a double grandmother for the second time and this time 12 days apart. How exciting to have 4 grandchildren in 2 years, 3 boys and one girl. Children are a blessing from God.
This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Eye-Fi. All opinions are 100% mine.
It is so much fun to take photos at all the birthdays and family gatherings. I also take so many photos with my camera on vacation. But then when it comes time to put them on my favorite website like Facebook, I can't find my USB cable. So what happens? The photos start building up and family and friends start asking me what happened on my vacation and where are the photos. Uncle Jim wants to see his birthday pictures and my face is red because I can't get them onto my computer to send to him. My brother is always asking me to upload some photos for him but where is that USB cable anyway? I have looked high and low for it.
Now an Eye-Fi card can change my life and yours if you have the same problems because it entirely wireless. Just watch this video and see what I mean. It is amazing.
Not only does it save time for you but it automatically organizes your photos by date and backs up your memories for you. It is so simple, with a wireless router and an SDHC capable camera you are in business. No more waiting to get your photos on your computer. No more people bugging you to see your photos. It is so simple.

Our little great granddaughter turned 2 on November 1. She had a neat Elmo cake. She got all kinds of presents. It looked like an early Christmas. It is so much fun to see the little ones enjoying their birthdays. Her little first cousin was able to join in the fun too. Being only a few days apart in age, they really have a good time together.

We had a wedding in the family. Some of our grandchildren have been living out-of-state but they are now back here. They were able to attend the wedding supper along with our little great grandson. He had so much fun playing with his little cousin. He has the biggest eyes like his Mom and gets so excited over everything. He is so much fun to watch.

I know I have been at many a family gathering and of course, the first thing they would say is that I could play the piano. They always wanted me to play something for them. However, without my music, I was unable to remember the piano chords so I was always embarrassed.
If I had only known about this website that gives you wonderful tips on playing the piano, I could have learned to play by improvising without music. It is so easy to find out how to play piano chords and much more just by filling in your email address and get your free piano playing tips from here. Be sure to watch the videos if you don't believe it is possible. I feel it is very exciting at the prospect of playing piano without your music with you everywhere you go.

They have thought of everything from the registration of the gifts you would like to the reception and wedding itself, of course. In addition to all the wedding details, they also have prepared for those who would like to go scuba diving for instance. Or perhaps you would enjoy just soaking in a milk bath and then an aromatic massage. Sounds wonderful doesn't it?

I don't know how they expect you to bend your knee to a normal position when it is the size of a large cantelope. It is hard enough to get up and walk after sitting for just a short while. Friday they will work me over again. I've got weeks of this to look forward to.

A Rolex stands out as not only a useful piece of jewelry, but a sign of elegance and beauty. Now you can save as much as $1000 on the watch of your dreams. Which is your favorite, gold or silver. Do you want Roman Numerals or numbers on your watch? How about diamonds or a beautiful deep red or blue watch. You have so many choices here that you may have a hard time deciding and may want to purchase several at these savings offered today.
I guess I have often thought of a Rolex as a man's watch but they have a delightful inventory of the most gorgeous ladies watches, as well. It is hard for me to decide between silver or gold. They are all so beautiful and I would like lots of diamonds sparkling on the watch of my choice as well. Check into their website and see if you do not agree with me that they have a great inventory of beautiful watches. You can give them a call on their toll-free number too.
As an independent dealer, they are able to sell you their watches at discounted prices. Everyone loves to save money while buying the watch of their dreams. How can you resist?
Tonight it is to get down to 49 degrees and that is not growing weather for the corn and beans. They need lots of sunshine and heat. If you stand in the sun, you get hot and sunburned but if you are in a breeze and in the shade, you nearly need a jacket and often do need a jacket. We have taken jackets at night whenever we go out. I wonder if we will have a cold, wet fall too. Time will tell.

It is sweet corn season at last. There is just nothing like a big platter of fresh sweet corn. The farmers pick it fresh out of the field and then park their pickups all over town or take a bunch to the local grocery store. I just stopped at Kum&Go and there was a pickup load waiting there so I didn't even have to get out of the car. So you know what we will have for supper tonight, dripping with butter, salt and pepper.
There is just nothing like a fresh grilled hamburger to go along with it too. I can hardly wait. We have to take advantage of the season as it is short but one of the best parts of summer.

It has always been my desire to be able to sit down and play a new sheet of music. However, if I haven't heard it before, I was never able to do it. Also, I have trouble reading the notes and figuring out the sharps and flats.
By signing in with them, they will help you with so many facets of playing the piano. It will amaze you, as it did me. It is fun to just sit down and play along with people but I couldn't do it. I feel with this website, I can learn to play along without all the difficulty of trying to read the music and play at the same time, stumbling over many parts of it. That is embarrassing. Just fill in your email and sign up for free piano lessons too.

We all love the homemade pea soup so really happy to be able to get more of them again.
The store is only about 10 miles away so not difficult to go get them. We really appreciate the manager helping us find the peas.

We got to visit with nephews and nieces from Indiana and Michigan and a good time was had by all. We sat out in lawn chairs under the shady trees and a nice breeze was blowing. The men all got together later in the afternoon and played their own game of football. There were at least a dozen so had good teams and several of the younger ones play football in school so it was fun. Many pictures were taken and cameras were snapping all over the place. We look forward to doing this again next July 5, 2010.

Little Emry is going to have a new little brother or sister around Dec. 3 and his cousin Kaelyn is also going to have a new little brother or sister around Nov. 30. This is the second time the father of Emry and the mother of Kaelyn, who are twins, are going to make their folks double grandparents for the second time. This is really something isn't it? Kaelyn looks pretty happy in this picture doesn't she?
Our little great grandson broke his foot at the swimming pool. It sounded like kind of a freak happening but feel sorry for the little guy. He is always so smiley and I guess it wasn't long and he was running around on the foot. That's kids for you. It hurt awful at first but he overcame it and kids heal fast too.

One of our youngest daughters and her husband are celebrating their 30th anniversary today. Congratulations to them. They have a wonderful family of three children and two grandchildren and two grandchildren on the way this winter. We are so proud of all our children as they all have passed the 25th anniversary mark and are on their way to their 50th now. God has blessed them all and us too.
My husband is having his hair cut there too now as his barber is taking radiation treatments for cancer. I see lots more men in the beauty shop getting haircuts than ever before. I know they really miss their regular barber as he was a laugh a minutes, always telling jokes.

He hooked the missile about 50 miles off the Panhandle town of Panama City and kept it on his boat for 10 days. He had hoped to keep it as a souvenir, but took precautions because he didn't know if it was live. He kept it cool, he said by packing it in ice.
Later he found out it was a telemetry missile that carried no explosives which was a good thing. However, the MacDill Air Force Base Bomb Squad inspected and dismantled the missile after the fisherman returned to port on Monday.
Search boats recovered 15 more bodies on Sunday from the plane that crashed May 31. Four of the bodies were men and four were women. They didn't have the information on the other bodies recovered as yet by French authorities. There are a lot of heartbroken families due to this huge loss of life in the ocean near Brazil. Two Americans were on board, the last I heard.

My husband had this laser surgery Thursday and they found a birth defect in his bladder. I wonder how many men are having the same problems he was having and have this defect also? The doctor said he sees a great many of them. It is too bad my husband couldn't have had it fixed 20 years ago. Just in our little town of about 3000, our doctor says she sees about 100 men a year who have this surgery. It is called TURP for short. What a blessing.

We used to live just a few short miles from the Airport with the jets flying so low over our home that when you were outside, you felt like you could almost reach up and touch them. Needless to say, while watching television, you could not hear a thing as they passed over. We felt some of those minor quakes while we were living there, but I am glad we moved to the Midwest before the bigger ones have struck there since l970. I guess this one was just an aftershock because two days before, they had a 4.7 earthquake which was also centered near the Airport. It is a very strange feeling to have the ground shake under you and you can hear the ground make a cracking noise also.

The rule took effect January ll,2009. It allowed visitors to carry a loaded gun into a park or wildlife refuge as long as the person had a permit for a concealed weapon. Also the state where the park or refuge was located must allow concealed firearms. Previously, guns in parks had been severely restricted.

It can be quite miserable because it bothers him to sit in a hard chair for any length of time at all. It also starts bothering him about 5 miles down the road whenever we go anywhere. Many have suggested seeing a chiropractor but he hasn't decided yet if he wants to do that. Some people have great results from them, while others don't. Guess we will just have to wait and see if the exercises work for him.

Astronomer, Timothy Spahr of the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics said that was pretty darn close. However, it was not as close as a tiny meteroid 2004 FU162, which came within 4,000 miles in 2004.
The space rock measured between 69 feet and 154 feet in diameter. The Planetary Society said that made it about the same size as the asteroid that exploded over Siberian in l908 and leveled more than 800 square miles of forest. They started tracking it in late February and Spahr knew within an hour of that discovery that it would pose no threat to Earth.
Last year, the asteroid 2008 TC3 harmlessly burned up in Earth's atmosphere over Africa 19 hours after it was discovered. The next time an object will get closer to Eath will be in 2029 when an 885 foot asteroid called 9942 Apophis comes within 20,000 miles.

The sun is shining and the wind is from the southwest and blowing in some warm air for a change. It may even get rid of the snow on the north side of the garage. It is always shaded there part of the time and gets quite slick. I guess I better get going and get the mail.
