Travel Insurance

When traveling anywhere it is always smart to travel with some insurance. There are multiple ways of obtaining traveler insurance but I think perhaps the quickest and easiest way to obtain this is travel insurance online. There are various sites offer numerous arrays of packages with different options and for any type of traveler. The next time you plan a trip or are packing your bags maybe you should also check into getting some travelers insurance.

Lose weight, grow hair and inches

There are a bunch of commercials that fill up the time between shows that try to sell you weight loss pills. I know I have blogged about these commercials and the ridiculousness of them before but I saw a new one the other night that made me laugh out loud. They showed a picture of this overweight man, and then this skinny dude came waling out and stood next to it saying “that was me just 6 months ago.” The only problem was that the picture was not of the same guy, unless he also grew his hair back and grew a couple of inches taller besides losing that weight over those 6 months!

Reunited and it feels so good

What is better then winning a new car, or winning millions in the lottery? What is better then coming home to a hot gourmet meal or your girlfriend in sexy lingerie? Today anyway it is the fact that Phish will be taking the stage for the first time in nearly five years. The Hampton Coliseum known as the Mothership to Phish fans is going to lift off with all the energy that will be released once the lights go down and our four favorite musicians walk on stage and once again do what they do best, make us dance and have no worries!

New Fence

Aluminum Fence Installation, it does not sound too hard. Believe me, IT IS! Well it was a lot more work than I had planned on it to be. From the digging of holes to making sure it was all level turned out to be kind of a pain. But after a weekend of work my backyard is now fenced in and I am one step closer to being able to get a dog, so I guess it was worth the hard work!


Wow! Luxury Hotel Rooms do not have much in common with just a normal hotel room. As luck would have it the hotel that I had made reservations at overbooked and needed to upgrade me to a Luxury Hotel Room, and at no additional cost to me! The only downside to this is it spoiled me, the big beds, and countless soft, plush pillows and big flat screen television. I don’t know if a Super 8 is going to cut it anymore!


I’ve always said that when I die I would choose to come back to earth as a tree. I think it would be interesting to see how your surroundings change over the years while you stay stationary in one place. Now the question is what kind of a tree would I want to be, there are so many to choose from. Evergreens, walnut, oak trees, I guess it really would not matter as long as I lived a long life and grew to be a solid large tree that never got chopped down!

Discount Building Materials

When remodeling an entire home or even just a room it is important and sometimes tricky to stay within a budget. There are some great alternative ways of accomplishing this including websites and businesses that specialize in discounted products. When we redid the upstairs bathroom we found a wide range of places to search for discount sinks and ended up saving a lot of money.

Compact Flash

I have been pondering the idea of getting another compact flash card. They are such a convenient and reliable way of saving valuable information. Whether that information be important documents or a Saturday Nights worth of pictures a compact flash memory card will make sure it is safely saved. And the best part about compact flash cards is that they are so versatile and can work in a variety of different devices.
