Everyone is looking for movies, music and games to download. However, it is not always easy to find what you are looking for. You need a good search engine that can't only find music torrents but can find the DVD's and games as well. I checked out Looney Tunes and was so surprised to find so much listed by category and size. It is simple and easy to find what you are looking for. And because it is updated regularly, you can find the latest of whatever you want and download them for free and you don't have to worry you might get empty files either.

Well, our friends are off to their home in Arizona. This year they put their house up for sale but the way things are, it hasn't sold yet. They have asked me to keep an eye on it and the next door neighbor too. Make sure the furnace doesn't quit and pick up the junk mail. They have a permanent house in Phoenix now so took their furniture too. It will seem funny to be checking an empty house. The neighbor will keep the snow cleared and they have a neat setup where a light goes on if the temperature in the house drops below 40 degrees. Then they call us and we check it out and call the plumber if needed. It is a simple way to make some extra cash next Spring by housesitting this winter.

I didn't know there could be so many football games on a weekend. All day Saturday and Sunday, game after game. We found a site on the Internet that gives you all the NFL games for the weekend and you guess who is going to win. My husband has been having fun with that but it is getting harder to guess each week. It is FREE to play but they are giving cash to the people who can pick all the winners. Not much luck here though. :0)
There is quite a bit to setting up your own domain. If you are a novice like me, you don't know the first thing about it or where to start. That's where website hosting comes in. In checking through their website, I found that they not only furnish you with the top 10 web hosting providers, but they also show you the features and pricing. These are important items to everyone starting their own domain or adding a new domain. It is also very helpful to get the reviews of the web hosts. Find out what others think of them. I know when I set up my own website, I didn't know where to start and I had to ask others what they thought and get their advice. Friends and family are not always as knowledgeable about everything you need. I found that out the hard way. It would have been much better if I could have looked into the Internet and gotten the help I needed. There are even free domain names. I didn't know that and I am paying for it. It would have been very helpful if I could have looked up free domain names and saved myself some money. It is also interesting to read up on web hosting news and a great deal more.

Dentists are good when you need them. But it seems so many people are afraid to go to a dentist. I used to be afraid but I have had such wonderful pain free dentistry by great dentists that it doesn't bother me any more. My husband had to have two fillings this week and he said they used something new to numb the place where the fillings would go. It only took a couple minutes and he didn't feel a thing. He said it was great. I hate the sound of the drill though. I don't think that will ever change.
Everyone seems to be watching Wall Street and the stock market these days. It has taken some terrible hits and many have lost a lifetime of investments. That is why people from ancient times knew that gold coins would always be a good investment. Present civilization could take some lessons from the past Greeks and Romans when it comes to investing. They knew the value of gold and that it would not lose its value. Gold generally increases, rather than decreasing in value, making it a great investment. I know it seems like every day I see television ads advising us to buy gold for a safe investment. This company has been in business over 30 years and they are experts in their field.

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.

Yesterday was our 59th anniversary. We ran away and got married in another state at that time. It was a secret for 3 months as I was still in high school and we thought married students had to pay tuition. We found out later that was untrue so we made an announcement in the local paper and surprised everyone. My sister-in-law got married during the same senior year before she graduated too. And no one was pregnant either.

It was a great day of Sunday football for my husband as our oldest son and his 3 boys spent the afternoon with him watching football. Although they are fans of different teams, they still had a good time. They had Subway sandwiches and that was really good for them as we women were gone to a baby shower, eating all kinds of goodies too.
