Dangerous Heat

It is 92 degrees right now. That is way too hot for this area. The humidity is going up fast and the weekend looks to be really hot and humid. There is a big carnival and celebration going on in the next town but it is too hot to be outside. Good heat stroke weather. Staying in the air conditioning with the shades down until the sun goes down. Want to go see fireworks on the 4th if it gets down in the 80's and we can stand it. Also family reunion on Saturday but it is out on a farm and lots of room for breeze which makes quite a difference.

Moving on up!

Guest written by our friend Gladys Fuentes

When I moved to Carolina, I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted to do. I thought about going back to teaching and I also wait with the idea of getting into real estate, but when it came down to it, I knew it was time to finally start my store. I've been putting it off for a long time, but my heart has always been in retail and now was as good a time as any. After I found a space to rent in a couple of really good suppliers, I started working on the logistics. This included hiring two people to help me work with store, researching credit card processors at more and consulting with a tax attorney to make sure I had all my bases covered when it came to paying the bills. The store has officially been open for three weeks now and business is doing better than I expected. TheWho knew that taking this tiny leap of faith would be the best decision I ever made?

Pretty Bubbles

Doesn't this look like fun. It is a beautiful day to play outside. Mom is making lots of bubbles for these little ones to chase. They can spend a lot of time doing this. It gives them plenty of fresh air and sunshine and is a simple joy to do. It does not take a lot of expensive toys to always make the most fun. Everyone enjoys making bubbles for the children and it is fun to watch the try and catch them.

Mail Time

We live in a mobilehome court and all our mailboxes are in one place. It is just far enough so I take the car, pick up the mail and often get a few groceries while I am out. Sometimes I take Holly along for the ride if it isn't too hot. She loves to go for a ride. The clouds are rolling in so thought I better get going and get the mail before the rain starts. The lawn is all mowed and trimmed and looks so nice. The neighbors are letting theirs go to seed from the looks of it.

Scary Strong Winds

We had winds go through yesterday about noon. They lasted about 2 hours before they slowed down a little. The trees were almost bending over. I thought if there are any that are dead inside, they will surely blow down in that wind. I wonder just how much tree damage there was. I know it was so strong it blew over a big BBQ grill outside. Fortunately it didn't hurt it.

Shop West Palm Beach for a Hyundai

Living in Florida is just great and being able to visit several dealerships when you are in the market to buy a new or used Hyundai is a big advantage. When you are shopping around, often it saves a great deal of time to check out the Internet. At is a great place to start.

I know when we go out shopping for a new vehicle, my husband usually chooses Hyundai and it is up to me to choose the color. We find great buys on both new and used cars but a big part of buying at a dealership is the service. I want to know that I can count on them to take care of the oil changes and other maintenance that keeps our Hyundai running top notch.

Being a blogger myself, I thoroughly enjoy reading a blog about Hyundai and finding out all I can about the used cars. So often they are a great bargain and just about the same as a new one.

Fun in the Water

They have so many nice new things for kids to have fun with outdoors. On Memorial Day, the kids were able to try out this new water fountain that squirted water up into the air. It had 3 balls that you put inside it and then turned on the water and up went the balls into the air. The kids were delighted. It was so hot and it was so much fun for them to dash in and out of the cold water. It was fun for the adults to watch them at play. We were all laughing at their antics as they dashed in and out of the water spray.

Severe Storm Warnings

First we had 2 days of almost unbearable heat. Then last night it cooled way down. Today the breeze was down right cold. We wore jackets to go out to eat and they felt good. Now I see on the television that the county west of us is under a severe storm warning. That means it will be here soon too. We can always use some rain but we don't need any storms. I hope it passes us by.

Our little Boston Terrier, Holly, is feeling her age. She doesn't play much any more. She just wants to lay where it is cool and sleep. She eats good though and has a fat little belly. We sure hate to see her coming to the end of her life. She has been the best little dog we have ever had and we have had a lot of them.

Topamax Lawsuit

Topamax is a drug that was given many people for convulsions due to epilepsy and also it was given for migraines. However, they failed to list other possible side effects of this drug. Therefore, it was given to pregnant women and many of them had babies with terrible birth defects such as cleft lip and cleft palate. It was an expensive ordeal for the families to have this defect repaired so that their child could lead a normal life. However, this should not have happened in the first place and there was a Topamax lawsuit. If you were not included in this lawsuit, you may want to check with O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers – 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701 – 512-494-9949 to see if you have a case.

Summer Fun Outside

This has been perfect weather for all the kids and grandkids to play outside and have a good time. They can run and play until they are so tired they drop right off to sleep at night.

The little ones are so tired they should take a nap in the afternoon, but they won't give up playing. We adults wish we had that much energy. They never seem to run out. They have so much space on the farm to run and play and have a good time.
