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.
Today my sister is celebrating her 40th birthday. I wish she could spend the day doing everything fun and nice for herself to pamper her body and relax the mind. Wouldn’t that be a nice way to start the next year of your life?
But she doesn’t have that luxury, what with the economic times we are all in plus the fact that her hubby was hurt in a car wreck and can’t work until he recovers. So it was off to work she goes, and her dinner plans include Chinese take out that she picks up on her way home from work. So at least she doesn’t have to cook.
Sis – I love you and hope you manage to have a happy day on your 40th birthday!
There have been plenty of websites that I have found and suggested to my readers throughout the years. And most of you know that I dearly love the smell of a good cigar, but have no desire to start smoking one myself at any time soon. We used to always buy my great grandfather cigars for Christmas and then my Grandfather started smoking them as well as pipe once in a while and I feel in love even more with the nice aroma that you get once in a while of a good cigar or pipe being smoked.
I don’t do many auction sites and I really don’t like eBay, although I make a few purchases now and then through Amazon as long as I can use my PayPal account I feel pretty safe. See I ran across a cigar auction online the other day, you know how you start pushing random buttons and you find yourself all over the place in just a matter of minutes. It reminded me of my grandfather and his father before him that meant so much to me as a girl and realize just how lucky people are that still have any of their grandparents still around.
How come this year is the first time that I’ve heard that there are numerous stories and/or versions about the origin of tomorrows holiday, St. Valentine’s Day. I was listening to one of the several talk radio stations today and they were talking about the various versions about this holiday that is celebrated each year on February 14th. I just couldn’t wrap my brain around the fact that I had really had no idea that there was any confusion on why we spend so much money on cards, balloons, candy, stuffed animals and all the other merchandise that flies off the shelves at all the stores all across the country.
So last night I went online for a bit and decided to look around and see what all the hoopla was about. I don’t know what to believe at this point, but I thought that this video that I found on YouTube.com was really interesting and thought I’d place it here on my blog. Of course you certainly can’t believe all that you read and/or hear in real life, much less the Internet, so it would be great to get some feedback on this subject and this video from some of my readers.
I can’t imagine not being able to eat popcorn. I have a dear friend that I just found out is suffering from some type of bowel issues, I think it is called Diverticulitis and she is no longer able to eat many things, popcorn being on the top of the list. What a drag I’m sure that will be for her.
Me, on the other hand, can eat all the popcorn I want. I love popcorn and enjoy all the different types that have been coming out on the market these past several years. I have found two favorite places to buy popcorn online, where they always have a great selection of popcorn, you can mix and match and create your own samplers, even have gift baskets that are yummy. I’ve told many a people about this website and have never heard a bad word about any of their orders. I have even provided the link for both of them as a hint for many gift giving suggestions for myself and others! I mean lets face it Christmas isn’t the only time of the year that gift giving is in order, so this is a perfect gift for any of the numerous other gift giving occasions that go on all year long.
