Using the Best Search Engine

I know getting a small business going is tough. They say it takes at least 5 years to get a business really profitable. Although, in re-searching the Internet, I have found there are companies that help you with your online marketing. You have gone to a great deal of trouble, I am sure, to get a website that attracts customers to your business. However, it does not always seem to work out the way you thought it would. You expected many more people to checkout your website and that is not happening. That is where a good company with experienced SEO's comes in. But you say, it is too expensive. Well, perhaps it would be a good idea to check out the costs before you give up on the whole idea. You will no doubt be pleasantly surprised at how low the costs will be and no contracts either.

Bus Trip

I went on a senior bus trip with our local bank yesterday. We went to the Old Log Theater in Minneapolis. The play was just hillarious and everyone laughed and laughed. A good time was had by all. They fed us a wonderful meal before the play. There were so many buses there. There had to be 200 people at least and the waitresses just ran their legs off keeping everything moving. They did a great job and I bet they all went home very tired last night.

Mosaic and Glass Tiles

Are you seriously thinking of doing some changes to your home? How about putting in something new in your kitchen? It is a great time to buy because it is the end of the year clearance. We all want to save as much money as we can so we can do more changes to our home. They have many overstocked and clearance tiles available right now and if you are looking for glass mosaic tile or stainless steel, copper or wood tiles they have them too. With the many choices of color you can create beautiful backsplashes in your kitchen, as well as, your bathroom and so many other places in your home. It is easy to measure and then install yourself for a beautiful look. These glass mosaic tiles are affordable and you can order them by phone if you wish.

Mexican Lasagna for Supper

Have you ever had Mexican Lasagna? If you haven't, then you have missed out on a great hot dish. I made some last night. I like to make it in advance and let it sit overnight and let the juices soak into the tortillas. When it is baked, you would think it is lasagna noodles. You line a 9 x 13 pan with a layer of tortillas, then cover it with half a meat mixtures you cook. Then put a layer of shredded cheese over that. Then you add a second layer of tortillas and the rest of the meat mixture. Bake the next night for supper and just when it is hot, put a cup of shredded cheese over the top and leave it in the oven just long enough to melt the cheese. Serve it up to your family and enjoy. The house smells wonderful and it tastes even better than it smells.

I logged onto and upgraded our cable package first thing this morning. It had been on my to-do list for a while, and now I was feeling really motivated. After I got my errands done this morning, I stopped by the gym and went to spinning class. Before I went home, I stopped by the grocery store and got something to cook for dinner. By one o’clock I was out of the shower at home and relaxing, getting ready to cook dinner. It has been a while since I got up and got moving like that. The cold weather really makes me a homebody. I would rather just stay in and wear my pajamas on days that it is gray and snowing. I think that it must be the new Colombian coffee that I have been buying it really has a perk in the cup. Every time I have a couple of cups of it, I feel like I can conquer the world ( or at least conquer all of my household tasks)!

Support Walgreens

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

For over 100 years Walgreens has been providing prescription drug service to our Military families under the Tricare program.   They had a fine service going between  Walgreens and Express Scripts and then Express Scripts would not agree with them and the contract was cancelled.  Tricare is a part of Express Scripts and would not separate this from the other part of the contract. This means that thousands of Military personnel and their families could no longer get their prescriptions through Express Scripts at Walgreens. Not only that but a great many people not in the Military also may have to travel much farther to get their prescriptions.  It is going to cost the taxpayers more due to this, something that is certainly not needed at this time when the country is having so many problems.  People like you and me are going to perhaps find that we are going to have to go to another pharmacy and pay more for our prescriptions.  Not only that but we will not have the ability of obtaining a prescription 24 hours a day.  However, the Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens is certainly going to be a great help, and the membership is risk free.  Everyone who uses Walgreens should get hold of their local television or radio station and tell them how unhappy you are and get this out before the public.  Petitions have been circulating and you can also follow Walgreens on Twitter  and be sure to "Like"  Walgreens on Facebook too.   If we all get behind Walgreens, perhaps we can all make a difference.

Our youngest son had his birthday on Saturday. It was a beautiful sunny and warm day. I say warm because normally it would be snowy and below freezing in January. The night he was born, we had tons of snow, and it was way below zero. I nearly froze getting to the hospital. It was very early in the morning and still dark outside. It is hard to believe that was 55 years ago.

Engagement Pictures

All couples love to have some engagement pictures taken. This is my grandson and his fiance. He designed her engagement ring and it is beautiful. They are busily planning their wedding for this summer. It is going to be in a unique place. I am invited to go and am very excited about it.

Bundle of Joy

They call little babies bundles of joy. They definitely are little bundles of job. Pictured here is the latest addition to our extended family:

No. 12 great grandson. He is growing so fast. They talk about children growing like weeds, and I guess they say that because they do grow so fast. Before you know it they are cooing, crawling, talking, walking and the next thing you know, you are enrolling them in school.
