Milk

There are so many types of milk on the grocery shelves these days. Regular, 2%, 1%, skim. Then there is the lactose free and now we are seeing more and more soy milk, which just cracks me up because there really isn’t such a thing as soy milk, it is soy juice. But I guess no one would be attracted to a product called soy juice. What a joke!

The Slurpee

I was speaking the other day about the amount of 7-11 stores that are seeming to take over. I remember a song back in the 70’s that came out about the Slurpee. I thought that I might be able to find it on YouTube.com, but to no avail I couldn’t find it. This is the first time that I have not been able to find a song on YouTube.com, bummer. But I did find a funny video that I wanted to share here.

High School Reunion

I just got an email informing me that we are scheduled for yet another high school reunion come October. I have been to several of these functions and really don’t look forward to attending another. If it wasn’t for a very good friend that I went to school with, who just pesters the hell out of me to go with him so that he doesn’t have to sit by himself all night long, I wouldn’t have attended any of them at all. Some things should just remain in the past and let go of………

The Grande Shores Resort in Myrtle Beach S.C.

So I went online earlier today and found some real decent Myrtle Beach vacation deals on the website of http://www.grandeshores.com/default-en.html. South Carolina sounds real nice right now, a great beach, awesome golf courses and the best night life that any beach has to offer on the east coast. And since BP has messed up most of the other beaches that people have flocked to each and every summer Myrtle Beach is really swinging right no. I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to find a decent Myrtle Beach hotel at this point in the game, but taking a few minutes online did the trick right nicely for my needs and wants this summer.

I used to go to Myrtle Beach with my family, back in the day. We all enjoyed the golf courses in that area and all the other things that Myrtle Beach has to offer. It has been a few years since I’ve been there and I can’t wait to see how much is still the same, yet I’m sure that there has been a good amount of change as well. Hopefully it’s all good. The Grande Shores Resort advertises Southern hospitality and that sounds good to me!

Stormy Weather

We were warned that we could expect a few thunder showers yesterday afternoon, but my god what a storm that turned out to be. I had taken a stroll down to the city flea market, it was an extremely hot and humid day, the vendors were all anxious to leave and get out of the heat. All of a sudden the winds kicked up, big time, the sounds of all of the merchandise being blown over and crashing was as loud as the thunder, with papers & posters flying through the air and numerous canvas tents that most of the vendors use for shade were flying about like balloons.

I made it to my car right as the rains came. I felt bad leaving so many of the vendors in such a state, but I asked a few of them if they needed by help, but they all seemed good to go. I’m sure thousands of dollars were lost yesterday in merchandise, props and equipment, not a profitable one for most of them in the end.
