Allergy season is upon us

The past few couple of weeks I have been hearing a lot of sneezing going on, here at home, at the mall, at the grocery store and of course at the hospital, where we spent so much time at last week.  Every single person was complaining that their allergies were kicking in, tis the season.

My youngest has had allergies for several years and gets an allergy shot once a month and takes a small little pill once a day and it seems to be working rather well.  I took her off of the pill for a few months during the winter, but I think we need to start her back up again so that she doesn’t start up like everyone else around is.

Yesterday was a beautiful day, it made it to the 70’s and today is supposed be the just as nice.  I hope we are done with the snow and freezing temperatures once and for all.  I am itching to get outside and start working on the yard and the gardens, and boy do they need work – it was a hard winter on our yard this year – lots of strong winds made it worse.

Coast To Coast Event Internet

The most important decision that you’ll need to make as an event organizer is the location of your event. This will naturally affect both your attendance and the experience that your participants have. Of little less importance will be the internet connection that you’ve arranged. While it might be fairly easy to arrange for a connection, it is more difficult to get a reliable connection.

Trade Show Internet offers services from coast to coast, so for internet services from San Francisco to New York, contact them on their website.

Bandwidth is also very important, and Trade Show Internet offers both internet and bandwidth solutions. Bandwidth is ultimately the capacity of your network, and it can often be overlooked in favor of the internet delivery technology. Internet technology is often front and center while the bandwidth solutions are often in the background. Nonetheless, no network will be effective without the bandwidth capacity that it needs.

This is especially important if you are using presentation materials that are graphics intensive. My sister just returned from a big convention in Florida. Her PowerPoint presentation was a big hit, and a lot of the success was due to the great internet connection provided by the hotel.

Transportation in New York

I remember the last trip that I made to New York, we took the kids to see the Big City during the Christmas holidays.  My parents took us there as kids a few times and it was such a wonderful and magical time, something that I always wanted our kids to experience also.

Transportation was an major issue then and is even worse now a days, if we go I would like to fly into New York and use the Newark airport car service and pick up a nice Town Car or something close to it that is nice, comfortable and reliable so that we could ride in style.

Trying to hail a taxi can be such a drag in bad weather or if you are running late or if your kids are tired and getting on your nerves, ha ha.

We could drive in safely at our own leisure into Manhattan, Brooklyn or even into the New Jersey country side if we wanted and when it is time to leave the city for home we can just leave the vehicle at the airport, hassle free.

My Crock Pot Is My Best Friend

I don’t know what I would do with out my slow cooking Crock Pot, now that I know so many ways to use it, I find myself pulling it out from under the counter more and more as time goes by. Today is a perfect day to put it to use, they way it spills the aroma all through out the house in wonderful and keeps everyone from wondering too far from the house come dinner time, puts a smile on my face.

Today I am cooking four nice pork chops (boneless & lean) along with 2 cans of candid yams and a couple sliced apples with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a bit of brown sugar. I’m browning the pork chops right now in the oven before putting them in the crock pot, I like that texture much better and I’m always concerned that I’m going to serve some one an under cooked piece of chicken or pork, so I tend to over cook them both, but the family still enjoys them all, along with me.


This morning I had gone to the little gas station down the street from my house, and purchased a drink called Monster thinking it was just to boost you up a little bit for the day ahead.

Well after about 5 hours after drinking it, I had experienced jittery bursts out of no where, and I couldn’t stop thinking about everything at the quick speed it was going. I got so ahead of myself that I dropped hot coffee all over my white blouse that I had on.

Now I’m worn out and I feel like I ran 8 miles with no break, about to pass out. Be aware of these drinks – they cant be too healthy for you.

I’ve never had any problem with caffeine before, but now that I am more aware of how it can affect me, I’ll read the labels of all those energy drinks and maybe only drink half of it at a time.

How To Buy A Guitar

There are so many types of guitars out there these days, thank goodness for the Internet to help guide people on how to buy a guitar. Now that all of the Christmas hub bub is over and done with, I think I will start considering getting a guitar. Of course I am going to have to find a place that gives guitar lessons in town. I don’t think I have the patience to learn how to play one on my own.

There are a couple of places that I have in mind to check out, but first I have to find the perfect Gibson Electric Guitar, which just might be an autograph model that I found on Musician’s Friends website. It has to be a Gibson or else my grandfather would turn over in his grave. He was a hard core Paul Gibson guitar player and wouldn’t consider any other type of guitar for him or anyone else that he could influence with his obsession.

I really like the look of this Royal Crimson Gibson. I’m getting so excited but am having a hard time making a decision, as usual. It’s the Libra in me that makes it hard to decide on just about anything. And for this amount of money I really need to make a good educated choice.

Researching Web Hosts

Hubby has been increasingly interested in getting up and creating his own web-site and has been doing a bunch of asking around folks and doing a good amount of researching on the Internet about which web hosting company to go with. Word of mouth is the best advertising, as always, but the Internet is a great way to go these days.

I’ve even started checking out a few things myself so that I will be able to talk with him about this issue and hopefully it will help me sound like I know what I am talking about and we can learn together, this will be an adventure, I’m sure.

Cheer Goodies

Dance Clothes and Cheer clothes seem to go hand in hand. Our youngest daughter has been a cheerleader for several years now and we are always looking for the newest fashions that come up for cheer leading.

This is a sport that is getting very popular, just 5 years ago you couldn’t find much of anything, but since every year it gets more popular so there are more and more merchants producing products to sell for the participates that love new fashions and all of the goodies too.

She has her room all decorated in cheer leading style which really looks cool her friends really like it (she does also) and we are always looking for new stuff to help decorate it with so I found a new web-site the other day and it has some neat stuff for us to check out together, cool.

I hate laundry

One of things that I really wanted in a house, when we were house hunting nine years ago and found the house that we are now in, I didn’t get and it makes my life so hard that it drives me crazy.  I mean I got the fireplace, the two car garage, red brick, basement, decent yard, and all of that good stuff, but I didn’t get a laundry shoot.  The house that I grew up in had one and I never appreciated it for what it was really worth.

The washer and dryer are both down in the basement and that really sucks also.  I hate walking up and down the steps all the time with my hands always so full of dirty laundry, detergents, softners and everything else that I end up having to carry down there.  Oh yeah, and the deep freezer is down there also, I hate it, not the freezer – I love that, I just hate the awful stairs that I must use to get to it all the time.

We have an upstairs also, when we first moved in, Hubby and I claimed the bedroom and bathroom up on the 2nd level, but after two years of running up and down those blasted stairs about killed me.  The oldest daughter now has run of the upper level and I try not to have to go up, I guess I end up going up there about once a week or so and that is it.

Hot Flashes Suck

I have been dealing with menopausal symptoms for years now and the hot flashes and the night sweats are driving right up the wall. My sleep has been greatly disturbed by this horrible condition and the doctors have tried so many types of sleeping pills, but none so far have done the job. A few have really knocked me out, but the next day is Hell and I can’t deal with that very often – that is for sure.
