It looks like people are taking it seriously about having easily readable residential address plaques installed on their property so that our emergency personnel can locate them during their time of need, if the occasion should arise. We have had some close calls around here the past couple of years and the call went out and people are actually listening and taking action. I’m seeing more custom address plaques being put up, some of them are done very nicely and no I am thinking of looking at some personalized address plaques to place on my property as well.
I’ve been looking online at the varieties of address plaques, my goodness there are a lot of them to choose from. There are some good sales going on right now that I’d love to take advantage of, but I really want a second opinion. I’ll be seeing my sister over the weekend so I’ll take my laptop along and show her the ones that I have bookmarked.

I just got back from having a late lunch with an old friend of mine that found me on Facebook, only to find that we only live about 35 minutes away from each other. Facebook is becoming a great way to find people to re unite with, and so far I’ve been happy with all of my findings and today was one of the best.
Since it was in the high 60′s today, another unusually warm weather winter day, we had lunch in her backyard which she has turned into such a wonderful place to relax and entertain. I am so impressed with the bamboo panels, the small fish pond with the water falls that is filled with some very beautiful koi. I was surprised to learn that they made the fish pond themselves with the most real looking fake rocks that they found a great deal for on the Internet. There us even a wheelchair ramp for the people that need wheelchair ramps due to their handicap status to enter into this little wonderland in her back yard.
One day I would love to have a back or side yard that looks as wonderful as hers. It would take a good amount of work, time, effort and money, but it is definitely do able. Then I could entertain and feel good about it when the weather permits entertaining or just relaxing outside. I wish I had had a camera with me today, I would have loved to have taken her picture out back and put it on Facebook later.

It makes me feel bad to see how hard it has been on my sister and her husband these past couple of years since they sold their landscaping business and relocated from up north to back down here in the south to be closer to friends and family. It was a good plan that went sour just a few months after getting everything sold, packed and moved down here. He was rear ended by a woman with no insurance and hasn’t been able to work since that horrible day and has left him in pain all most 24/7.
Although he is no longer working with all the heavy equipment that had accumulated through out the years up north, he is still very much interested in heavy equipment and is always checking out the used dozers the used tractors for sale as well as the large amount of used trucks for sale that he sees here and there that people are trying to sell due to the economy still being in turmoil. There are some very sweet deals out there and I know that it breaks his heart not being able to take advantage of all of the used construction equipment for sale at rock bottom prices that are becoming so plentiful everywhere we seem to go.

I’ve got to tell you that this website that I was told to check out for some of my financial questions and concerns, looks like it could be the CPA that I’ve been hoping for. Carson Thorn’s website can be found at carsonthorncpa.com and if you are looking for an accounting firm in the Raleigh area in the beautiful state of North Carolina. I think it will be great to be able to communicate with this firm via the Internet. I’ll let you know how it all pans out!
With the tax work that is going to be required here real soon, come April 15th 1013 I need to have all this stuff taken care of.
Choosing The Right CPA

With the cost of food on the rise, with no end in sight, there is going to be a lot of people turning to planting gardens for the growing of their own food to feed their families with this spring. The number of people applying for Food Stamps is on the rise, but that can only take a family so far in a month, so a garden only makes sense.
The Internet is full of useful gardening tips, so I thought that I would also join the band wagon this year and start my own backyard fruit and vegetable garden. I do want to take on this project as organic as I possibly can, so I have a lot to learn in only a few months time, spring is right around the corner, the time for planting the seeds is very near.
I’ve located an organic tomato growing kit at Saferbrand.com that I am going to purchase and am looking into other organic products as well. I’ll need some organic bug control, to keep all the nasty little pests away, I’ll not have any chemicals in my future food, I can tell you that!
I’ve used an organic rose care kit from Safer Brand before, it really did wonders for my poor rose bushes last year, so I know that I will get quality results from their products that are being offered by them. I thought that I was going to lose my favorite yellow rose last year and it was very disturbing to watch it get so sickly, and then so very awesome to see it come back to life due to Safer Brand.
