Investing in Gold

Due to economy and also the stock market falling, we have been hearing a great deal about investing in gold and I think it is a very good idea. For centuries, people have known that the way to protect their wealth is by buying gold. So many people have seen their investments dwindle quickly during these times. It has been suggested by many to buy gold coins and I am sure that is a very good idea. Gold holds it value over the years. You can invest in some gold for your retirement and know it will still be there when you retire. Protect your wealth and look into gold as a safe way to do that.

New Shed

The last bad wind took the roof right off the neighbors shed. It was getting pretty old, so he tore it apart and got a new one. Then he built an extention on it just about as long as the original shed and roofed them both the same and painted them both gray. It really looks nice with new doors and he has a lot of space now to put his mower and other stuff. He fenced off the yard by it for his dog to run. It really looks nice now.


We have a pretty good bunch of neighbors. When we both had surgeries almost back to back, they helped us out with all the lawn mowing for most of the summer. What a blessing. I try to help them out too when I can. I cat sit for one neighbor when they are gone, feeding their cats and making sure they have water. When I bake more than we can eat, I take them each some cake, cookies, or whatever I have made. It is great to have good neighbors.

Louisiana Cosmetology School

Cosmetology is a wonderful career to get into. Everyone is particular about their hair and we all want to go to a salon where the operators are well trained. Regency has been in business for a good many years and has 75 locations including the Louisiana Cosmetology School. If you are looking for a good school this is one of them. Regency has salons all over our area and we know their salon operators have attended a good school and had the best training available. I think anyone looking for a career or new career would do well to looking into the cosmetology schools in Louisiana and around the country, where ever you live.

Boston Terriers

I think Boston Terriers must be one of the nicest dogs to own. They are so clean and quiet. They don't bark hardly at all unless they see a stranger out of the window. Our other little dog barked all the time so it was such a relief to get Holly and find that she seldom barks. At first we wondered if she could bark at all. She is all stretched out in one of her chairs (she owns the house) sound asleep.

Car Wash

We went for a ride today on dusty country roads. When we got home our red car was full of heavy dust. I took it down to our new car wash. It does a wonderful job of cleaning the car both underneath and on top. Then it has big dryers that dry the car as you drive out. It is the best car was we have ever been to and I am sure glad they built it here. You can even wash a motorhome or semi in it.

Buy Gold Bullion

The market has really been up and down. Stocks are dangerous to be invested in unless you are an expert and really know what you are doing. However, you do not have to be a genius to know that when you buy gold bullion you are preserving your wealth and making a safe investment for many years to come. People through the ages have bought gold to protect their wealth and we can take advice from them and do the same. You can buy gold through the United States Gold Bureau and have it delivered to a safe depository of your choice or if you wish you may have it shipped directly to your home and then you can decide where you would like to store it. Either way, you know you have invested smartly when you buy gold as it has always been a great investment.

Rib Crib

Tonight we are going to try out a new restaurant in a nearby town called the Rib Crib. We hear they have a huge menu so you can have just about anything you want at any price. If you don't want to spend a lot, you don't need to and vice versa. I think it is kind of exciting to go to new places as we have our favorites and usually keep going to the same ones. We know what we like and know it will always be the same and very good. But it will be fun to try something new. Maybe it will be on our favorites list from now on. Who knows?

Cancer Free!!!!

My husband had colon cancer surgery in April last year. He had a very large tumor that was just about to break through the colon wall. They took 19 lymph nodes and there was no trace of cancer so he didn't have to have any further treatment - no chemo or radiation. Last week he had his annual follow-up colonoscopy to be sure there was no more cancer. He got a great report. He is cancer free. Praise the Lord, God is Good, all the time.

Farmer's Market

Our granddaughter-in-law has a blog called They Call Me Old Fashioned. On it she shows all the wonderful things she makes for the local Farmer's Market. They had great weather this weekend. Even though it rained last week, they sold out. It is because she has such a talent for decorating foods. People keep returning to get more of her delicious baked goods.

OXIS International, Inc.

If you check out the Internet at I know you will find this company most interesting. They have just re-listed their stocks and are now trading on the bulletin board. Advanced Oxidative Stress Techology is the only one who has developed ergothioneine and has the patents and more pending. It is a wonderful product that works against the effects of free radical and has a protective effect on important parts of the body. It helps the body's defenses against stress and helps to improve health and well-being. This is done in part by conserving and maintaining antioxidant levels in the body. It has also produced gluthathione which is a excellent help with bowel diseases. Cognitive decline is a major factor in Alzheimers and if ergothioneine assists with the progression of this disease and other diseases, it is a wonderful development.

Outdoor Barbeque

The neighbors are barbequing steaks outdoors. He is quite a hunter and I am sure they are deer steaks. It always smells so good. We had a big lunch at church at noon and neither of us is even hungry for supper tonight. Maybe we will have some popcorn or something like that later tonight. I baked a coffee cake for workers for the church for yesterday and they saved us a couple pieces. Boy it is good!!!

Stem Cells May Benefit Stroke Patients

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

Stem cells recovered from menstrual blood have been thoroughly covered in a 'Stem Cells and Development' article. I found to be it most enlightening in C'elle in 'Medical News Today'. Because the uterus is replenishing itself every month, it is an almost unlimited supply of stem cells which are a match to the donor. This is certainly a consideration to save those cells for possible future use. Many laboratory tests have been made on rats with good results for recuperation from stroke. Many of us know how important it is to get to the hospital at the first sign of a stroke in order to be treated as quickly as possible for the best recovery. My sister-in-law waited too long and suffered paralysis of her entire right side. Because these stem cells from menstrual blood have distinct properties that have been shown to do the job, it would be a good idea to have your stem cells saved for possible future use because stroke is the 3rd leading cause of death and disability among adults. For a limited time, C'elle has a special offer of $100 off the usual cost of $499 for the first year for them to process,test and collect your stem cells. All you need to do is use the Code CLSTR in order to take advantage of this special limited offer.

Lunchtime with Family

Uncle Jake has joined his brother and family for lunch. They always have a good time together. It is nice that they live in the same town so they can see each other more. Family is important and it is fun to visit and enjoy a meal with them. The little ones are growing up so fast we can hardly believe it. I am glad at our age, that we are still around to enjoy them too.
