Samples of the day :-D

At Wal-Mart's eye center you can now get a 2oz RevitaLens OcuTec starter kit with a free lens case. I don't wear contacts but my soon to be daughter-in-law does. Check it out.

Prilosec OTC sample

Alien Ears is on a "save the hearing" mission to supply hearing protection in the form of ear plugs and monitors for musicians. Musicians should protect their hearing at all cost. The longer you can hear, the longer you can gig.

Lately there are so many things going on. The riots in Egypt, then Libya. War in Afghanistan. The May flood in Nashville. The flooding in Brisbane,Australia. The shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford, that also resulted in the death of others, including a nine year old. The collapsing of Beirut, Lebanon's government. The floods in Rio de Janeiro. The stampede that resulted in the deaths of 100 people in India. A major Earthquake hits Pakistan. The BP oil spill that not only killed lots of wildlife but interrupted a mass amount of peoples income. The Chile Mine disaster. I wonder what the future holds.

I am not a believer that the end of times are coming and that Christ will come to take all of his followers to Heaven. I don't believe that on December 21, 2012 the world will end. What I believe is that the world is full of Chaos. It is scientifically proven that the Earth is shifting. We have spent hundreds of years destroying the Earth for personal gain. Greed has completely taken over in a large number of people. Disasters are at an all time high. If the world ends, it will possibly be by our own doing. However, with the Earth shifting and the atmosphere changing, I believe that the landscape and make up of the Earth will change. The climates of many continents could drastically change. We rely on satellites for practically everything. What if the satellites are know longer sending signals. It is possible that there could be a huge magnetic hold on the Earth. Then what, we would lose all modern amenities. Without electricity, technology, would the average person be able to survive? These are all just What ifs but in the future it is possible.

Another day in the neighborhood.

Today is a beautiful day. Snow coats the ground and it is just pretty. Unless you are one of the people stuck driving in it. I have friends that have been on the interstate for 6 hours trying to make a 10 mile commute home. I am so glad that I am at home and that Scott only works a 1/4 of a mile from our house. School is canceled tomorrow so i plan on sleeping in. Lazy, I know.

I have been dealing with Walgreens trying to get my medicine and that has stressed me out beyond belief. Finally, today I was able to get my meds. Geez, Louise. Direct Insurance is also pushing me to the limit. I agreed to a settlement for my car. Way less than I would have liked but realistically my car was 10 years old. Only had 30,000 miles on it but..... you know how that goes. I have been waiting on my check, that they "supposedly" have already mailed but guess what? I haven't got it. We are still in the process of the other claim for Scott's missed wages and his hospital bills. I am at the point that they are going to make me snap. This man ran a red light going like 40 miles an hour totaled our car and had the nerve to act like he was being inconvenienced having to wait for the police. Well, his car was still able to drive. Ours, totaled. Scott was hurt. Thank goodness for airbags though. They bruised him up but probably saved his life. All I know is this wreck could have been worse and I am thankful that it wasn't but we had one car, with low mileage, dependable and paid off. Now, we have had to get another car and in order to get a dependable car we now have a car note. Our insurance went up due to having a newer car. Scott had to miss a bunch of work and still hasn't completely recovered. He is scared to death driving and I this jerk could care less. I would feel horrible if I did something like he did. He could care less. What a jerk.

Oh well. I am just glad that Scott is going to be ok. He can get under my skin sometimes but after 14 years, we have made it through a lot. I know he loves me and I love him and I can't imagine not having him in my life.

Well enough sappy talk. I am off to enjoy the snow :-)

List of things to do when Tonya comes to town. 2011

Yes I know, this is not necessarily "a blog" but.... it is a list of things that we plan to do when Mabel visits Nashville. With our memory, we need all the help we can get.

1. Take a spotter class
So Mabel can become a trained spotter and I can get a nifty certificate.

A new year.

Everyone always hopes that the new year will be better than the last. I hope that rings true for everyone this year. We had a quite the financial rough patch last year but were luckier than most. There were so many people that lost everything. Their jobs, their homes, their families even their lives. It is a sad but unfortunate fact that there have been parents that have felt like they had no other way out than to kill themselves. Rather than leave their children orphaned and alone with nothing they have often taken their child's life too. Sad, but I think that they must feel like there is no other way out.

Our society is so blinded by fancy clothes, fancy cars, nice jewelry, tanning beds and Jersey Shore. I am always trying to understand why people constantly are on a mission to impress everyone else. If the recession hasn't been a wake up call for people, I don't know what will. Don't get me wrong, I love my computer and my cable but at the end of the day I know these things are not necessities.

With that being said. My hopes for the new year are:

* That my family and friends stay healthy
* That everyone has what the need to survive
* That everyone can find happiness
* That I can get some home improvement done on the house
(I do it myself so it is a slooooooooooow process)
* Oh and I would like to read Decision Points by George W. Bush

Last night I was going to watch The People's Choice Awards but I there were other shows I wanted to watch so...... I didn't. I did, however, catch Neil Patrick Harris win an award for best comedic actor in a sitcom. I usually don't get "emotional" for lack of better words when celebrities make acceptance speeches but last night I was able to sit next to my daughter and explain why what he said in his speech was monumental. No it didn't appear as if he had prepared something to say but the fact they we, society, have finally progressed to the point that he can openly thank his partner and acknowledge their children is a beautiful thing. It is sad to think that it has taken so long. Ironically the people that have such a problem with same sex marriage and same sex relationships are not affected by it. I will never understand where people feel that they have the right to tell people who to love. After he accepted his award, I changed the channel. I decided to let it end on a good note. I didn't want it to turn all "Brett Farve."

The sky is a falling.

The sky is officially falling. Well, the birds are. Ironically, people seem not to care. If they were the ones that were dying in herds (or flocks) I think that their outlook would be different. Who knows what is causing it but it looks as if the number of locations are growing. Maybe we are all just characters in an Hitchcock film.
