Breakfast for Supper

Do you ever have a breakfast meal for supper? We do. We had eggs, toast and bacon Saturday night for supper and it was very good. Later on we had bowls of buttered popcorn. Tonight we had pancakes and sausage and that was also very good. I made a chocolate graham cracker pie and we had some for lunch and will probably have more again soon tonight.

Rain, Rain, Go Away

It is raining again. I guess we can just be thankful it isn't snow. I heard once that 10 or 12 inches of snow is equal to one inch of rain. So from the sounds of the drops on the roof, we are being spared many inches of snow. I think there is a little freezing mix north of us and that is dangerous. Icy roads are worse than snowy ones, I think.

Stock Market Closes Down 17 Points

There doesn't seem to be many rosy days for the stock market. People's 401k's have evaporated. Stocks have been just terrible. They keep talking a brighter economic forecast, however, today thousands more people applied for unemployment. Health care companies seem to be the only ones gaining or holding their own. The Fed raised its expectations for economic growth during the second half of this year, but said unemployment will remain high. Millions are on unemployment, without jobs and no prospects of getting a job.

Deal fo GM to sell Saab Collapses

I had heard that GM wanted to sell Saab to a specialty carmaker. But that company pulled out of the deal. This is the third time this year that one of their deals to get rid of one of its brands has fallen apart. It is trying to recover from a stay in bankruptcy protection. It may decide just to let the brand die. The jobs of 4500 Saab employees, most of them in Sweden, are in jeopardy. It seems every day we hear of another company letting go of huge numbers of employees.

Cosmotology Schools

A girl at church was telling me how much she loves to fix hair. She is planning to go to beauty school to perfect her talent. In looking through the Internet for cosmotology schools she found that it was quite easy. All she had to do was fill in the zip code where she lives or the State she wished to attend school. In moments, she found just what she was looking for. Not only that but she found a great deal of information on the latest trends. Did you know that cruise ships are a great way to find a job you would love? Imagine being on a beautiful cruise ship and having your job there? Wouldn't that be outstanding?

Community Thanksgiving Dinner

Every year in our little town, a different church is chose to hold the Community Thanksgiving Dinner. I think that is great. You can go there and eat. Or if you would rather eat at home and watch a game, you can pick up your dinner. In addition, they will deliver to your home. That is really nice. Lots of ladies get together and prepare the turkey and all the fixings and you give a free will offering for your dinner. We are going to have ours delivered this years. We did that 2 years ago and it was just delicious.

Thanksgiving Day Traveling

I was just listening to the news. They say a lot less people are going to fly home this year for Thanksgiving. However, lots more are going to drive. So they are alerting people to be sure and be alert with many more cars on the road. Gas prices are also supposed to be dropping. So far one of our gas stations dropped their price one cent. That's no big deal, is it?

Oakley Sunglasses

Everyone needs a good pair of sunglasses. But not only that, you want a style that is up-to-date and you can be proud of. You want a pair that fits you well and makes you look good. That is why Oakley Sunglasses are a best buy. They give you a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee. Not many will do that. But they also give you a one year guarantee against breakage. When you get on the Internet and order from them, you can be assured that your glasses are in stock right now and will be shipped the same day if you order them in a timely manner. You also can be assured of the lowest prices, but check them out for yourself.

Tex Mex Night Out

It was Tex Mex night out for us tonight. Everything we had was delicious. We go to our favorite place and know the waitress quite well. She is a sweet gal with a little 4 year old girl. She always knows what we want to drink and has it on the table almost before we sit down. One of the owners is usually there too and she visits with us as well. We saw lots of trucks on the road hauling corn to the elevators. It is kind of a dangerous time to be on the road so you must be alert.

Because your feet bear the weight of your entire body, they are a very important part of your body. When your feet hurt, you hurt all over. I know I have suffered for many years with arthritis in both feet. When it got to the point where I could hardly walk, I knew I had to do something about it. In addition to the arthritis, it seemed like I was having problems with my toenails as well. I searched the internet for information and found that toe nail fungus treatment is a very important part of foot care. If you are suffering from any kind of foot pain, be sure to look up the best doctor you can find in podiatry.

Real Property Management Midwest

If you have property in Ohio, but you live elsewhere, what you need is Real Property Management. You need a dependable, experienced company that you can count on to manage your property. They are able to handle all the facets of managing for you. If you are looking for reliable tenants, I know it is hard to do it from a distance. Sometimes, it is necessary to evict tenants for various reasons and they can do this for you too. One of the great things is that they will inspect your property at least 3 times a year to be sure everything is alright. Having a reliable company take care of your property investments is a great stress reliever. Check into the Internet and see how such a company can help you.

I am being paid for my opinion on this post.

Birthdays are Fun

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.

Pizza Night

Went out for Pizza tonight. I really enjoy having various kinds of pizza as my husband does not like it. He goes for the broasted chicken every time. They have a new apple/walnut/lettuce salad now with raisins in it that is just delicious. I could eat a whole plate of that and skip the rest. But it is mashed potatoes, gravy and chicken for my husband and he is happy. I had "Sweet Swine" tonight and there was a time that I thought pineapple sounded funny for a pizza but it is delicious. I also like the Cheeseburger pizza that has dill pickles on it. Yum Yum

Headstart Bus

The little Headstart bus comes by here every morning. They pick up the little girl next door. I used to ride on the bus and buckle the kids into their seat belts. I did that for about 5 years after I retired. Now those same kids are in High School. It is really something to see some of them after 9 or 10 years and see how they have grown and changed.
