After looking at the cigar magazine ipad that my sister had me look at we have decided to purchase our father some nice cigars and give him a subscription to this particular cigar magazine for Father’s Day. We stopped buying him cigars as presents a few years ago, but it looks like he has made up his mind to continue smoking his precious cigars, so we might as well buy him some nice ones once in a while to enjoy.

Back in the day when I was a little girl my mother would buy cans of Reddi Whip whipped cream. We would have a dessert after almost every dinner because my dad loved dessert. We always saved room for dessert! We used Reddi Whip on a lot of the desserts.Sometimes dessert was as simple as a little cup of Breyer’s ice cream. Mom would squirt some Reddi Whip on top and put a maraschino cherry or little sugar sprinkles on it. At least once a week we would have some kind of pie and once a week we would have some kind of cake. In between those we might have Jello with Reddi Whip squirted on top.
My favorite these days is warm ginger bread topped off with good old Reddi Whip!

It really shocked me when my mother turned down my invitation to go to the movies because she is very paranoid about catching bed bugs. No matter what I said or did she firmly kept refusing and my daughter twisted the whole thing around to where she thinks her grandmother doesn’t want to go to the movies with us because of her. This has been a constant battle between the three generations of females that just can’t seem to communicate with one another without someone taking it the wrong way and/or getting their feelings hurt on some type of level, sigh…..
It is a well known fact that bed bugs are becoming a huge issue with tons of people everywhere, as well as head lice. The pest control companies are being kept crazy busy and people are flocking to find new ways to prevent the spread of these unwanted critters, but this can’t make us so paranoid that it interferes with your daily life and relationships that we cherish and are hard to come by these days.
Funny thing is that my mother and step-father are currently on their way to Florida for a couple of weeks visiting friends and relatives and enjoying all that the “Land of Sunshine” has to offer. They plan on staying at various motels/hotels on their way down and back up again, which are more likely to infect someone with numerous unwanted critters. Go figure!

I’m so glad to hear that my first cousin has decided to further her education and get her personal trainer certification very soon. Her life has been in turmoil for so long, she deserves so much more than what life has handed to her. We were so very close while growing up and then after high school she decided to marry the first jerk that gave her a second look. Now she is divorced with 3 kids, all being extremely active and all boys.
She is living in a trailer park some where close to Atlanta Georgia, working as a waitress day and night trying to make ends meet, so it’s good news to hear that she has found something that interests her enough to get off of her duff and try and make a go of it. Her ex isn’t helping her and the kids out one bit, so she has her hands full.
She has put on a few pounds in the last decade or so, so she is interested in becoming as active as her young sons are and becoming a personal trainer would benefit every one all the way around. At Naturalhealers.com she has found The National Personal Training Institute that has a location close to where she lives down south and promises her the career that she is all excited about these days, with State of The Art Fitness Facilities for her use in the whole process.
I wish her all the luck in the world with this important decision that she has finally made her mind up to do.

My best friend is looking for ways to make some extra money. She has came up with the idea of making and selling jewelry at the local flea market, which is right outside of the city limits and is lately always jammed packed full of vendors and buying customers each Saturday and Sunday. She has been dabbling in beads for a few years and has gotten quite good at it, so it only makes sense that she can put her new found talent on the market and make a few bucks to help out during these horrible economic stressful times.
She has turned to the Internet and has found some good quality wholesale beads, chains, supplies, findings, tools, videos, DVDs and everything under the sun that she would need to get her up and running. They frequently have 99 cent sales which she could take advantage of with many of their items at 90% off retail prices. That is a nice chunk of change to be saved.
I took a look at the site myself and was happy to see all the beautiful gemstone beads that they have listed, with Jade being my personal favorite. These semi precious gemstone beads give jewelry a lasting value that can last a life time and are nice looking and very affordable for what she has in mind.
