I kid you not...we went to Chuck E. Cheese for my 7 Year Old's Birthday.  As we walked in the first of the two sets of double doors, we went to the next double doors.  And on the wall....was this sign.  We live in a great area that is really a super nice area.  Not a high end area, but in any eve...
I've been obsessed all year!!!! Really.....I've been obsessed with change.  Change in 2012.  The problem with success....and the problem with New Year's Resolutions is that it takes change.  The real issue is the problem with change is that you actually have to change the things you're used to do...
One of my favorite bands of all time....Del Amitri...out of England. A great band. Here is a great, but really mellow song that is entitled "Be My Downfall." It's Friday Night and I keep on thinking that I usually just jack it up. But tonight...I'm OK with just a little bit of mellow music. Hope ...
It's so hard to put your name behind anything it seems.  I am a snob about putting my name on anything because I expect the best of the best when it comes to things attached and associated to my name.  Given that, I want to share with you a local treasure.... OnPath Financial based out of Saint C...
So...just recently, I wrote a post about being shut down about 3 weeks ago from a lightning strike.  I bitched.... I whined.... I moaned, but finally Comcast came out and got me restored.....and my internet back up.  Or so I thought. Things don't go perfect for us all when it comes to the interne...
I can't even begin to tell you how frustrating my life has been.  Over the last 3 weeks we were struck by lightning, and even with a surge protector my modem and router were blown.  I had to have Comcast come out to get things back in order as well.  As a result, I was able to just one post over ...
Can someone help me here.  I have some folks saying that they're done with Facebook and that Pinterest is it.  I just joined this week and am following a ton of peeps, but have a few peeps following me.  I like "pinning" things on all my boards...but so what?  For me it's like a rolodex maybe? Is...
I haven't been blogging much over the last 2 weeks.  I have 103 referrals from the Rain and it's a part of my business plan to be Active in the Rain.  But no...I haven't blogged much for two weeks.  What's scary is that it takes 3 weeks to form a habit...yikes!!! Two weeks ago we had major storms...
I know that this can get kinda old, but with 5 kids....it's hard to find one on one time every day with each kid.  I haven't been on Active Rain for about a week b/c our house was hit by lightning and our internet went down.  I'll be back LIVE by end of the day tomorrow and then....it's game on!!...
I have been contacted by, what seems like, 1.2 million people wanting to take advantage of HARP 2.  What is HARP 2? Do you want the technical version or the easy to understand version?  The easy to understand version is this.  It's a government program that allows homeowners to refinance their cu...

 1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
(John 14:1-4, New King James Version) I review for BookSneeze
