Save Water with Dual Flush

Water is a very important commodity in our world. Many places have run out of water so it is imperative that we try save all the water we can. By conserving water, we are also able to save quite a bit of money on our water bill, thus helping our budget in these tough economic times.

However, by obtaining and using Dual Flush Toilets we have been able to also use an excellent way of going green. Conservation of what is available to us on Earth, will ensure the next generations will also be able to enjoy the benefits we have.

By using a Dual Flush Conversion Kit in the toilets in our homes, we are able to conserve water. We presently have two such toilets in our home and we notice quite a difference in our water bill. It makes us feel good knowing that we are contributing to keeping the Earth green for our grandchildren.

Go Vikings!

Do you think this little guy has a chance of growing up to be a Vikings Fan? He's living with Viking Fans, so there is a good chance. I am sure his Dad will have him rooting beside him when he gets old enough. They will have a great deal of fun today.

Cataract Surgery

Next week I am going to have cataract surgery on my left eye. I know it is a good thing to have done because it will help me see to read much better. It seems like I have to blink so much to make the print more clear when I read. They say it takes about 2 hours to get you ready for the surgery and about 2 minutes or less to do it. It isn't long and you are on your way home again.

Weather Delays

We tried to get out of town last Thursday to have a steak for a change. However, the snow was blowing and sticking to the highway making a real mess. It was downright dangerous. So we turned around after 3 miles and came back home and had Mexican in our home town. We had enchiladas and the meal was very good. Ate lots of chips and dip too and it was also good.

Mexican Food

I love Mexican Food. We stopped at Taco Tico this noon and had Taco Burgers. They are big and filling and we planned to go out to supper so didn't want to eat too much. They have great platters with rice and beans too. And I love their cherry empanadas and my husband likes the apple ones. We always get great food there and stop every chance we get.

Dungeons and Dragons Soda Flavors

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Jones Soda. All opinions are 100% mine.

With all the regular flavors of soda on the market it is exciting and intriguing to find a line of sodas such as Dungeons and Dragons Jones Soda. Doesn't the name alone just make you want to order a 6-pack or 12-pack of their exciting flavors?

Potion of Healing has got to be a smooth delightful drink of the best fruit juice you have ever tasted. I can imagine that Sneak Attack is a delicious black cherry soda with a hint of lime or lemonade. You can even ask them to concoct your favorite flavors into a specialized soda just for you. In these days of so much alcohol, it is heavenly to be able to purchase real fruit flavored soda that will truly quench your thirst like none other. I have tried a lot of sodas that were supposed to be really good but they fell flat on flavor. It takes experts to produce great flavors in soda that your whole family can enjoy. It is good for every get-together and family celebration. Children will love it.

Take a few minutes and check it out on the Internet and see which flavors you like best. Let me know which you choose, or is it all of them? I know this will make great gifts for all my grandchildren who are teenagers and it's opinion that their folks will love it too.

Driving in the Fog

Driving in the Fog is not my cup of tea. We started out to supper out of town tonight and the fog was just thick. We decided it wasn't worth the danger of driving back home at night in fog that was that thick in the daytime already. So we headed back home and picked up some hot sandwiches uptown and ate them at home and watched television. Maybe tomorrow night will be better. I hope so.

You Are Going To Want This

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of LG Chocolate Touch. All opinions are 100% mine.

Now at last, you can leave your Mp3 Player at home and indulge yourself with the new LG Chocolate Touch. The crystal clear sound of Dolby Mobile is the best you have ever heard. Do you love Facebook, MySpace and Twitter, then you are really going to love the One Touch Social Message Key that brings these to your fingertips in a flash. You can keep up with all your friends so quickly and easily. No problem connecting to the Internet either.

Want to make calls, but also want to make videos and take pictures? The 3.2MP camera/recorder even has imaging editor and gives you the best quality videos and pictures. It's all combined in one convenient phone. And how about visual voicemail and messaging along with the best text? Doesn't that just peak your interest and get you excited about a unit that does it all? It is truly an all in one unit that does it all for you and does it the best. It is my opinion that the Rhythmical Beat is fantastic when it vibrates to the beat of the music. I would just love all the Sweet Visual Effects including the beat. Maybe if I hint around enough my sweetheart will get me one for Valentines Day. It isn't far off you know.

Icy Roads

Last night we started out of town for supper at our favorite restaurant. We got three miles out of town and the snow was blowing across the highway. Not only that it was sticking to the highway. It was getting very slippery and you couldn't tell where the center line was. We decided quickly that the wisest thing to do was to head back home. So that is what we did. We went to the local Mexican restaurant and had enchiladas. They were good and we were satisfied and we saved ourselves a hazardous drive.

Valentine's Flowers

I bet with all the Holiday rush and New Years celebrations, you haven't calmed down long enough to realize that Valentines day is right around the corner. What are you going to get your one and only this year? Have you been thinking of some sort of jewelry? Perhaps the first thing that comes to your mind is chocolates. But believe it or not everyone does not like chocolate. And perhaps jewelry is too personal at the stage of your romance. So what do you do? Of course, flowers are the one item everyone loves to receive. And whether it is roses or a beautiful bouquet of mixed flowers, you just can't go wrong with flowers. Now the next thing I thought of was the expense. I know a dozen roses can be very expensive but with a Telefora coupon I could save myself some money and get a really nice gift of flowers for my significant other. My sweetheart will love both me and the flowers when I deliver them to her. And she will be so surprised because she knows how tight my budget has been lately. How about you? Have you considered flowers but thought also that you could not possibly afford a dozen roses? Think about it. Perhaps you can.

The Fog Comes on Little Cat Feet

Remember that poem you learned in school? Well, it is true. The fog has been rolling in for several days now and tonight it was very bad. We started out of town for a good steak supper only to turn around in town and head for the nearest Subway. It has really got us socked in good. I feel sorry for anyone who has to drive in this fog at night. It was bad enough in daylight. Maybe tomorrow will be better. With warmer temperatures and melting snow, the air is heavy with moisture and thus the fog.

Use Your Camera Wirelessly

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Eye-Fi. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have been blessed with three new great grandsons within three weeks. Because of that I have taken so very many pictures on my camera and everyone in the family wants to see them. I always get my USB cable out and get them onto my computer. That way I can send them out to everyone. But I think I have lost or badly misplaced my USB cable and everyone is driving me crazy to see the pictures. I recently found out I could get an Eye-Fi card that will not only save me time but I will be able to quickly get my pictures out wirelessly. Isn't that great? It will automatically date them too and organize them for me and I won't have to let them sit in my camera and grow old before I get them sent out. Take a few minutes and watch this video and see just how amazing this is.

I found that all I would need to get is a wireless router and an SDHC capable camera. What could be easier? I would be happier and everyone in the family would get their photos and they would be happy with me. No more getting 2 or 3 month old pictures. Now I could get them out in plenty of time and quickly.

January Brings More Snow

Just when you think you have enough snow, it starts again. Got up this morning and went out to get the newspaper. It was fine then but now it is starting to snow. We wouldn't mind so much if we were staying home but we have to travel 30 miles to a doctor appointment. You never know how much black ice there will be on the roads. It pays to leave early and be cautious.

Free Virtual Sheet Music

Everyone who is interested in playing the piano is very interested in obtaining new piano sheet music. I know it has always been a favorite of mine to play new songs on the piano ever since my grandmother paid to have me take piano lessons in eighth grade.

There could be nothing better than obtaining free sheet music could there? In my opinion, checking out the Internet for free is a great way to add to your collection of sheet music. Then when you are asked to play a favorite for someone, you will have a large selection of sheet music to choose from.

One of the easiest ways I have found to increase my inventory of sheet music is through sheet music download. I have found that I can obtain sheet music for all skill levels. This is perfect for me as I am not an accomplished pianist but play more for my own enjoyment.

Grandpa and Grandson

This is a picture of one of our sons and his newest grandson. He is also our newest great grandson. We have three of them now within a couple weeks of each other. It is so much fun to hold the new babies. The best part is you don't have all the work connected to taking care of them and raising them. You can just enjoy them :0)

Hot Supper Tonight

I made a crockpot roast tonight in my new crockpot and it is so tender. I like to use onion salt and garlic salt in the water. I also brown the roast first, salting it with both salts on all sides and browning on all sides. Then into the crockpot and later add carrots, onions and potatoes. Yum Yum. It makes the best gravy and last time I saved enough for hot beef sandwiches. May do that again or just eat the leftover slices on buns. It is soooo good. Serve peaches for dessert and cold milk and you are all set for a delicious meal.

Cubic Zirconia Earrings

It is getting close to Valentines Day and men will be shopping for their girlfriends, significant other, fiancee, wife or even their Mom or another relative. They can't go wrong with cubic zirconia earrings as they are just gorgeous and looks so much like diamonds that you cannot tell them apart unless you are an expert. There are beautiful necklace and earring sets that will make their eyes light up and they will be so excited when they open their gift of lovely jewelry. I am going to check out the Internet for great buys. There are many of the latest styles of earrings to choose from.

Pizza Ranch Tonight

With all this sub zero weather, we have been staying home a lot. I have been really brushing up on my cooking skills :0). But after a while it is nice to get out of the house. It doesn't matter how cold it is, it is good to eat out for a change. Tonight we are going to the Pizza Ranch where we will be treated to a large salad bar, many kinds of pizza, chicken noodle soup, broasted chicken with all the trimmings and a dessert pizza. Can't beat that.
