Sarah Palin's wardrobe hubbub

I'm wondering how many of you feel the way I do about all of the hubbub about Sarah Palin's wardrobe. I was watching the news today and the broadcaster was going on and on about how much it cost the Republican party to make over Sarah Palin and her family for the campaign. I don't remember the numbers, but it was a lot of money.

How do I feel about this issue? Really!! Seriously!!! Our economy is reeling out of control, there is a war going on, most of our states need better schools and on and on. With all of these issues that are really important, I personally don't give a hoot how much Sarah Palin spends on her clothes or anything else.

What I do care about is will my fellow Americans get out and vote for their candidate this November in the record numbers that are expected and that should be! I am praying for this election unlike any before. With all that is going on in our world, we need the best leadership we can get.

That said, let's forget about whose wearing what glasses, how much they cost and let's just get out and vote!! Urge your friends and family to do the same. It's our American freedom at it's best. VOTE!!

Our 50th wedding anniversary

We will be celebrating our 50Th wedding anniversary in 2009. Is it possible? It's certainly hard for us to believe. We are planning on a taking a special trip to a place we have never been before, to Antigua.

I plan to spend a lot of time in the sun and bring back an awesome tan so have been looking for a new swimsuit. I also need a cover-up. I found a great site for all that I need. It's They have all of the brands that I would be looking for and the prices are great too.

I'm taking my time deciding what I want to order, however, when it's time to go on our trip, I'll be ready to go.

Buzzworthy idea, for yard swings

Any men who are reading this blog may want to move onto another blog for now. This is pretty much a woman's topic.

Several years ago we bought one of those wonderful yard swings with a canopy for our yard. We have enjoyed it so much. Over time the outdoor elements have really taken their toll. The canopy had to be taken off as it was in shreds, and the cushions were really a site as well. I have looked and looked for replacement cushions and canopy to not avail. I was ready to just give up and get rid of the swing.

BUT WAIT!!! Inspiration struck. I said to myself, "I can sew, that doesn't look like such a hard job! I can do this!! " So, I tackled it.

I didn't want to invest a lot of money right away in case this turned out to be harder than it looked. So, I went to my local bargain store and bought three vinyl table cloths. Using the fiber fill of the old cushions, I laid the table cloths on them and cut the cloths to size. Next, putting right sided together, I sewed up three of the sides, then turned the new cover right side out. I then slipped the fiberfill cushions into their new covers. Voila' !!

I have to make the canopy yet and my husband has some rust stains to chase off of the patio cement, but at least you get an idea of what an easy fix this is. Give it a try. Even if you don't sew, hot glue would work too. I must add that this fix cost me $12.00!!

I'd love to see any pictures of your handiwork. Share any other ideas you have with us too. This is a problem to many. Maybe I should go into the business of making replacement cushions and canopies for those wonderful swings.

Maybe in my next life. =)

It's already Christmastime in local stores

I couldn't believe my eyes when I went shopping the other day. It's not even Halloween yet and all of the stores have their Christmas decorations out. I understand why, but I certainly don't like it.

Now that I have voiced my grievance, I must say that I'm starting to think about what I'm going to buy for everyone for Christmas. I have three grown children and when I can find a gift that they all would like, I get excited about that. It's easier for me, and I know they'll enjoy what I get them.

This year, my three are getting espresso machines. I know that they'll be thrilled with them. As an added plus, they'll be able to save money by not having to stop at those expensive coffee shops to buy their morning coffee treat.

Now THIS is a buzzworthy idea for the holidays!

The bane of teenagers

Acne!! How well I remember how frustrating it was when I was a teenager to have a face covered with acne. The only thing I knew to do for it was to put alcohol on my face. I know now how drying and bad for our skin alcohol is.

Today teens who are looking for an acne treatment have a vast array of products available to them. looks at the latest products, rates them as to quality, price and safety and lists them accordingly.

It's is great to be able to find all the information you need about the most popular products on one site. Don't you think?

A buzzworthy site has become one of my favorite sites. If I'm looking for something I need, it's the first website I check out because they offer such a great selection as well as very competitive prices. Whatever it is you're looking for, you'll find it there.

We live in the South. Even though the calendar says it's Fall, our temperatures are still often in the mid 80's. I needed a fan for our office now that we aren't using the air conditioner. I went to my favorite site,, and found a great selection of portable fans
and found just the one I was looking for.

Whatever it is you're shopping for, do take a look at this site. I think you'll be glad you did.

Obama and McCain, The final debate tonight

I'm looking forward to watching the debate tonight between our presidential candidates. I would love it if McCain would knock one out of the park for a change. I'd like to hear something new as well, something we haven't heard for a long time.

After watching the Democratic convention, I was ready, for this election at least, to change my alliance from the Republican party to the other camp. However, the more I listened to what McCain has to say the many times he's spoken since then, I am back where I belong, on the right rather than the left side of the street. Pun intended.

The debates should be interesting. Watch it with me.

Palin's debate score

Did you watch the vice presidential debates last night? We did. We were actually glued to the TV and after a while weren't even annoyed that we were missing out on "Grey's Anatomy".

How do you feel that Palin did? I felt that she did a good job handling herself. She came off confident and knowledgeable.

Do I feel that she gained any ground? I don't think so. I like her, I really do. She's loaded with personality. Do I have confidence in her as a potential president if the unthinkable should occur? No, I don't. Would I rather have Biden in that case? Yes, I would. So, will I vote for Obama? No, I will vote for McCain. See my dilemma? I need a McCain/Biden ticket. Better yet, I need a McCain/Condoleza Rice ticket. Now THAT is a ticket that I think would be a hands down winner. What do you think?

It's just plain good sense

Yearly my husband and I shop for car insurance. We used to just stay with our tried and true company, but have learned that we can save a lot of money on insurance if we take the time to get quotes. So, that's just what we do.

I have found that there are many reliable companies online that will give you quotes from all of the well known insurance companies. All you have to do is answer a few questions about your vehicles, your life style, where you live and they will give you a quote.

Now that is easy, convenient and just good sense. Shop around and see if you can't save yourself some money. These days, every penny counts. Don't you agree?

A new answer to an old problem? Here's the buzz!

There is a fairly new site on the virtual horizon, As the name of the site implies, it deals with those annoying eyefloaters. My sister has complained a lot over the years about having eyefloaters, but until I experienced this first hand I didn't realize how annoying and frustrating it can be. explains just what floaters are and what makes them occur. I found that to be very interesting, as I had never been given a straight answer before when I asked my doctor about them.

Besides the usual specks of floating substance in our eye, there are other floaters as well. Some people suffer from spider web type substances, as well as strings or streaks, and even fog or cloud like substances that can blur your vision.

We need to be able to see clearly. That is for sure. When there is a product available to clear eye floaters up for us, I for one feel that it's worth a few dollars to get the help I need. guarantees their product and wants their customers to be totally happy or will give them their money back.

That inspires a lot of confidence in me knowing that they stand behind their product to that extent. I also appreciate that they take PayPal for payment. That makes buying online a lot simpler for me and safer as well.

When you receive your eyefloater cure in the mail, as always I recommend that you show it to your doctor and get an okay to use it. That's just good sense. Always err on the side of caution when it comes to your health. That's my motto.

I'd be very interested in hearing about your experience with this new product, so do write and let me know how much better you are able to see without having to look through floaters. My email address is I look forward to hearing from you on this.

By the way, I will let you know how it works for me as well after I order my own eye floater cure.
