Prayers for the Utah Miners

I was discouraged to hear that on Saturday, the trapped Utah miners could not be heard when a microphone was lowered down where they are presumed to be located. I have not stopped hoping for some sort of miracle. I have been praying for their save recovery.

Which College Now??

Well I think it is official, my daughter is going to be a professional college student, majoring in staying in college until she is 40! She informed me the other day that she intends to continue on with her studies and become an Anesthesiologist. What??!!!! She works a 40 hour a week job and she has been taking classes since 2001, just trying to get that 4 year degree. She is only a couple classes away from that and now she informs that she isn't going to major in Business Management? She says all she needs are more biology, physics, chemistry and some other course and she will be able to start a residency. She has been doing college searches on line in an effort to find a college that is offering the courses she needs. In my idle time at work today, I managed to stumble across the website Anycollege.com. Their resources include search tools, scholarship drawings, college information request forms, information on featured colleges and universities, and other resources for students, parents, and counselors.
I am going to be sure to tell her to register for the Anycollege.com Scholorships that they give away to site vistors several times a year. Once she finds a university or two that may offer the education experience she is looking for, she can then use their college information request form to get more detailed information and guide her decision.
I never dreamed she would want anything to do with the medical field, so we shall see how long this vision of the future lasts.

Writers Block Question of the Day

If you won $100.00 today, what would you do with it?

Well, $100.00 is not gonna get me the things I really want, so... I think I would just save it for my next mini vacations to the beach or who knows where and spend it then. I should probably save it... but for what? When you get to be my age you realize that there isn't a whole heck of a lot of time left to squander away a measly $100.00 and wait for it to make you rich. I will be long gone before that! Might as well have some fun now!,

Pearl Jewelry

I have always like pearl jewelry. I own a few inexpensive pieces that I wear to church or other events. Pearls are traditionally classy items of jewelry but the classic white pearl can be worn for almost any occasion. I think they look great paired with jeans and a knit sweater. I've recently had my eye on an Akoya Pearl Necklace from nationalpearl.com. There is a beautiful floating pearl necklace that I want to purchase. It holds 15 classic white Akoya pearls on a 14-Karat yellow gold chain. When you purchase Akoya pearl necklaces you get AAA-quality Akoya pearls, measuring 7-7.5mm in diameter, high luster and a smooth surface quality consistent with AAA quality standards. The pearls with the rose overtones are my favorite and also their best seller. Nationalpearl.com has a great selection of these
Akoya pearl necklaces to choose from. They also have the famous black pearls too.
The best thing is that Akoya Pearls are guaranteed to appraise for at least 4 times the purchase price!

A Great Day at the Beach!

Saturday I packed up my cooler, sand chair, towels, beach bag, snacks, visor and umbrella and headed for the beach. It only takes me about 2 hours to get to Myrtle Beach from my home. I had nothing better to do, that didn't involve spending a lot of cash, so my cheapest bet was to head to the beach for a day of relaxation, basking in the summer sun. I stopped at the Local Dunkin Donuts on 17 and got a fresh cup of their coffee and their famous coffee roll, which is like a cinnamon bun. Since cinnamon is suppose to curb your appetite I chose this for my breakfast. The bun is huge and is delicious! Once I am ready to lay out, I have a favorite location I like to go to that is a secret. But let's just say I can park on the pavement and bask on the lawn of one of the nicest hotels on the strand and outside of enjoying their pools, I am privy to their bathrooms, tables and lawn chairs, umbrellas, and convenience shop located there all at no cost to me. What else could I possibly need for a comfortable day at the beach. Well a man maybe, but.... anyway, it turned out to be a beautiful day for sunning, catching up on some reading, man watching and just enjoying all the scenery. I would have loved to have stayed the night but money is kinda tight right now. I will definitely be going back! I have found another detour that gets me out of all the traffic and provides me with some great stores to pick up items I may need along the way too!

The Glass Tiles are back in Style!!

My parents house is about 48 years old. The house was brand new when they moved in it. The bathroom walls are tiled half way from the floor up with glass tiles. I guess if you never remodel you house then one day it will be in style again. This is the case with them. I have noticed that lots of people decorating their new homes or remodeling them, have started choosing the glass tiles that were so popular 48 years ago when my parents chose them for their wall decor. Of course, they come in more vibrant colors now and also more sizes to choose from.
The glasstilestore.com has a wide selection of glass tile in various sizes to chose from. So if you are planning to decorate or remodel your space, then check them out for great selections from decorating your kitchen and bathroom walls to placing in your new pool area! Most of these glass tiles come in a translucent finish, which means the color is painted on the back of the tile so it will not scratch or chip the color off. You save almost half off the regular price when you buy them on line from the glasstilestore.com.

Where there is a will, there is a way......

PATERSON, N.J. (AP) — Daisy Valdivia is annoyed that someone stole her backyard pool — and baffled at how they did it without leaving behind a splash, drip or trace of the 1,000 gallons of water it contained.

(Now that's pretty impressive!)

Valdivia awoke to find her family's hip-high, inflatable, 10-foot diameter swimming pool gone from her backyard Wednesday.

Valdivia told The Record of Bergen County the theft must have occurred between 1 a.m., when her husband went to bed, and 5 a.m., when she awoke.

She's amazed someone could steal the pool that quickly and just wanted to know "what the heck they did with the water," she said.

Writer's Block: Bump In The Night
