SHOWER or BATH

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

Personally, I prefer a bath in lots of very warm, almost hot water.  Some have said that I am not clean because I am bathing in dirty water.  I may not be clean but feel much cleaner than I do when I shower.  The choice of shower heads is unlimited today.

I have heard many times over that showering uses less water than bathing so to reduce the water bill, I may need to start showering instead of bathing.  I may need to switch my shower head to the Fire Hydrant Presidential as I understand it is one of the best on the market.

Before making a final decision on the shower head, I will have to visit takeashower.com and do a lot of comparative shopping.  There are so many choices and so many options.

I really hate the thought of giving up my bath.


PRISSY

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

Prissy is my 6 year old granddaughter.  She is a little shy but very loving.

Prissy called me last evening asking if she could spend the night.  I said yes and she started crying.  I asked why she was crying and she said I thought you may say no.  I do not say no very often.

All during the night she would reach over and rub my arm or back.  Is she afraid that I am going to voluntarily walk out of her life and she must check to make sure I am there?

I wish I could answer her unasked questions, but even if she asked them I am not sure I would know the answer.  I have asked myself for a truthful answer to “why” and I do not have one.

LOCAL

Friday, August 27th, 2010

Where does one look when they want to go to a nice dinner?  Some may search the local yellowpages or ask friends.  That is better than what I usually do, just go.  Most of the time that is ok, but a few times it has backfired and that 1 time was more than enough.

Some folks may use the computer and list their city in local search for steak restaurant or seafood restaurant.  Others may be looking for a wider variety of foods from which to choose and they could easily search local restaurants.

Sorry, I got a little carried away trying to tell you about local.com, a search engine that has it all.  Visiting this one site will allow you to choose where and what type of entertainment that interest you, find driving directions, hours of operation, and even read reviews, and much, much more.

THE LAKE

Friday, August 27th, 2010

I really enjoyed my visit with friends at the lake yesterday.  They are such good people and true friends.

After lunch her husband, Monroe, had a few errands to run so he left Diane and myself to catch up on the children and local town folk.  She and I sat on the deck and watched the boaters and enjoyed the cool breeze and fellowship.  I can not remember this lady ever saying anything bad about another individual.

She then drove me around the lake showing me the lake houses of different folks from Clarkton.  When my rich uncle dies and leaves me his fortune, I am going to buy the house next door to her or the one 2 doors down.  Right!!all of my uncles are dead and neither of them had enough to even make a will.

We then went back to her house and sat on the deck some more, Monroe came home shortly after we got there.  I stayed maybe another 45 minutes and then I came home.

Monroe invited me back anytime and so did she.  One said and the other agreed, “You have a key, use it, you do not have to wait for us to be here to come.”  I have done that in the past but it is more fun if they are there.

HOSTING

Friday, August 27th, 2010

There are several different types of host or hosting.  One could host a housewarming, baby shower, birthday party, farewell party, or welcome home party to name just a few.  There is a different type of hosting known as web hosting.

It is almost time for me to renew my web hosting.  I am not very computer literate so I definitely want managed hosting.  I want to tell my host in the beginning what I need or want and not have to worry every time I use the web if I am forgetting something I need to do for that particular time.

Attention small or medium business:  Colocation may be the very thing you need.  This will give all your locations immediate access without the need of correspondence by email or chat–similar to a conference call, also providing security and even faster speed.

BACK YARD

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

The back yard was really hard to mow and I did not get all of it done.  The grass is thicker in the back than in the front.  It would be nice if I had some type of industrial products to help me with that chore.

I need to get the blades on the mower sharpened.  I guess I will have to try to take them off myself and take them to “Honest Injun” and have someone sharpen them for me.  Before I take them off, tho an artist I am not, I will have to draw how they are on so that I can put them back on correctly.

My goal is to one day be independent and not have to call neighbors or friends to help me do what needs to be done.

CHANGING

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

I measured the bed and the space where I want to put it today.  It will fit, but I am still not sure that is where I really want it.

It fits the room the best the way it is now, but I do want to change it.  I need to decide for sure before I start moving any of the furniture.  I have measured space and the other furniture in there and all will fit nicely where I have in mind to put it.  I think I may change it this weekend.

or

I may go back to Emerald Isle.  With no one to care what I do or where I go, as long as I will not displease Jesus in what I do, it really doesn’t matter.

Decisions! Decisions!

COMPUTERS

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

I have been asked to do netbook reviews.  This is hard for me as I am computer illiterate, but I know what I like as far as service and looks are concerned.  I am now using a desktop, the only drawback is that I cannot take it with me when I travel.

I would like to have a laptop for travel, but would need a very large screen as my eyesight is very poor.  That would be rather extravagant, wasting money on a computer just to use when I travel.

FRIENDSHIP DAY

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

I have a very special friend that has a house right on the water at Lake Waccamaw.   I have mentioned before that she and her husband have invited me to go anytime I want and have even given me a key.

They will be there tomorrow and I am going for a visit with them, especially her (no offense to the husband).  Was hoping another classmate could join us but she is going out of town tomorrow.

HOT or COLD

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

It is summer and I am hot even inside with the A/C going. I have the thermostat set so that it is about 82 in the house. Can’t afford to have it any cooler, so I will just have to suffer.

This winter I may invest in heated mattress pads so that I will be warm enough to sleep.  I will have the thermostat on about 60 when I am in bed.  During my waking hours, maybe on 65 or 66 and wear a sweater or 2 to stay warm.  I may even have to invest in some female long Johns or would that be long Janes?
