Online shopping

If you haven't discovered online shopping yet, well, I am here to tell you that you're missing the greatest thing since white bread.

Instead of trying to beat the crowds, the traffic jams, and the picked over merchandise in stores, you can surf the net, find just what you want right in the comfort of your home and have it shipped to you or even to your family member.

One of the biggest pluses of shopping online is that you can find gifts that you wouldn't necessarily find in stores. Many stores carry a wider variety of merchandise on their websites than they do in their stores. If you live in a smaller community as we do, it's great to have access to stores that I wouldn't be able to get to unless I was willing to go to the city. That would involve traveling two plus hours each way.

Nope, give me online shopping any day. Especially at Christmas time. It's the only way to get that big job done. On Dancer, on Prancer, .........

A buzzworthy product review site

My kids have told me that they are tired of hearing me say, "do your research before you buy". I must admit, I do say that a lot. I'm a firm believer in finding out ahead of time all that I can. I feel that information is our strongest weapon. It can save us time, money, and our health in some cases.

This is why I feel that is a buzzworthy site. They have taken Phentermine diet pills and done the work for us. Their article on this product explains how it works when we use it, and what can be expected by way of side effects. Now that is just what we need when we are considering a product.

When it comes to anything that we are considering as a diet aid or diet supplement, as always, ask your doctor about it first. That's just being smart and safe.

George Bush welcomes Barack Obama

I was glued to my TV as I watched President and Mrs Bush welcoming the Obamas to their soon to be new home.

I didn't vote for president elect Obama, but soon he is going to be president. He won't just be the president of the Democrats, but he is the president of us all. As Americans we owe it to our country to get behind our new president and support him. We are the "United States" and I truly believe in that union and am committed to it all the way. I hope you are too.

What an awesome experience it must be to become the most powerful family in our country, live in the white house etc. But then, that's a subject for another blog, I think.

Help finding a job

There are so many people out of work right now. These are difficult times for us all and nobody is left unscathed.

There is a site online where you can post your resume and do a search for jobs in your area of interest and area where you live. If you're looking for employment, may be just what you need.

When you are searching for a job during times like these, I would suggest that you stretch yourself a bit and see what other employee categories you can submit your resumes to. Don't be afraid to stretch yourself a bit and think out of the box.

Good luck.

Gas is affordable again. YEA!!!!

As I have shared in the past, we bought a motorhome and plan to do a lot of traveling in it in the future. With gas way down again, thank God, it's affordable once again too.

Because of such high gas prices and the other issues of the economy these days, it appears that the bright spot in all of this is that many places including theme parks are running specials. I searched and found that Orlando vacations has some amazing price savings going for anyone who has yet to visit that amazing entertainment park.

My husband and I are planning a trip there to take advantage of the savings. After the holidays would be just perfect timing. The weather in Florida is great that time of year. It's going to be a wonderful trip.

Have you discovered "Big Lots!" yet?

Big Lots is one of my favorite places to browse and shop. Have you discovered them yet? They have the greatest selection of fun things that you might not find anywhere else. The biggest treat is the prices, though. Things are cheap, cheap, cheap. It's the best place to buy plastic containers. We all know how expensive they can be elsewhere. At Big Lots they're not expensive at all, so you can buy a bunch.

They carry everything from household items to some food stuffs. I don't buy eatables, though, as I worry about how long they've been on the shelf. However, sheets, pillows, yard ornaments, even furniture. I could go on and on and I do when I shop there. I go in to save money and because so many things are so cheap I over buy and end up spending a ton of money. Isn't that the way it goes? It takes restraint to shop at this store.

I think I'll go get changed and take a trip to Big Lots. See ya there. =)
