Dad, My Handy Man

At some point I will take the time and look for some new exterior shutters for the place. Each time my parents come over my father points out what a difference a pair of exterior shutters would make for the front of the house. He has even offered to look around for and with me when I’m ready to commit, so that would be cool.

My father has always been handy around the house and the yard, so any time he wants to give me a hand around the place, I’m all for it!

Mr. Fix It

If you can’t fix it with a hammer, get a bigger hammer!

Monitors A Plenty

Big Brother has become a major reality these days. I heard somewhere that the average person is video taped between 8 to 12 times each day. What’s really weird is that in Britain the norm is 300 times a day, now isn’t that just crazy?  Makes me wonder why and how there is just a drastic change in the numbers between the two countries. That would be an interesting subject to research and do a paper on for school. But since I don’t attend school and don’t have any reason to believe that I’ll be attending any type of school it looks like I’ll just have to look around a bit online to do some research for my own curiosity.

I do know that I see more and more video cameras every where I look. Some places even have multiple monitor stands that are full of all of the monitors necessary to keep an eye on everyone, like at the mall or big office buildings. You know the type that they hire someone to sit there and keep a look out for shop lifters, out of control teenagers and now we have to worry about people going wacky and shooting up the place and as many people as they can before either turning the gun on themselves or trying to run and hide. I really think that if more people carried weapons/guns that there wouldn’t be so many of these random shootings. It isn’t that there is too many guns on the streets, it’s that there aren’t enough so that people can protect themselves when stuff like this happens.

 

Web Hostings

I was doing some looking around online this afternoon at work. Most of us had a few minutes to spare before heading out into the rush hour traffic so it’s time like this that we take advantage of having Internet access at our desks. The topic of conversation lately has been web hosting. I had no idea that there were so many web hosting companies offering so many varieties of options. One of the girls at work discovered that there are several webhosting sites that are going green, which we all thought was pretty cool, so we checked them out real quick like.

There is a great web site that has ratings and reviews of various webhostings at webhostingrating dot com. It really has a lot of good information that we have all enjoyed and learned from. When we get our teeth into something we really chew on it for a good long while until we spit it out to be done with it and we have just about worn this subject out at this point. But I am going to look at a few more options and I want to read some more of the reviews and then we can move on to another subject for next week. Lord knows what that will be!

IED Up Close

It is truly amazing that more of our soldiers weren’t getting hit and hurt by these things. My best friends son is serving in the Army and sent her this video and she sent it to me. Amazing, truly. God Bless each and every one of them that are serving their country for you and me.

My Mother’s Buying List

I have always wanted a nice set of Hartmann Luggage or the ever popular Vera Bradley Luggage that looks so good on the luggage carousel at the airports at the end of the trip. Or at least if you are lucky enough to have your luggage arrive along with your arrival. I’ve never had my luggage lost before but I’ve heard some horror stories from folks that have had to deal with all the hassles and inconvenience of an airline losing your precious belongings that were being stored in your Luggage.

As I stated before I’ve always wanted to own a nice set of luggage and my mother is trying to make that happen for me for my birthday that is fast approaching this winter. My mother is expecting a nice sized tax refund from Uncle Sam next year and wants to purchase a few things that she has had her heart on for the past year. I’m just lucky enough to be on her buying list this year!

Of course I’m sure that if she finds herself in need of some nice luggage she can always count on being able to borrow mine any time she needs it. That is a plus!

Anyone remember this commercial. It took less than 3 minutes to find it on YouTube! It still makes me laugh even after all these years of not seeing it at all.
