Most people I know are getting excited about getting money back here real soon from having done the yearly chore of filing our tax returns. From what I hear is that a good amount of this money is going straight to credit card companies that must really rake it in and totally love this time of year when so many people are using their tax money to keep them all in business and in the red.
My brother-in-law just got his check and went immediately online to order the products that he has been anxious to get going so that he can start bringing in some more money through his “fix it shop” that he has built out back. It takes money to make money, there is no doubt about that. It will be great when he gets the auto lift that he ordered from best buy auto equipment. He has been on their mailing list for the last couple of years and has done a good amount of business with them and keeps coming back for more, so they must be doing something right. He isn’t known for being quiet and easy-going, actually he can be a real pain in the neck at times, but a good guy with a good heart that keeps my sister and their kids happy.

Once he gets this car lift delivered, installed and ready to go, I believe that he will start doing more side jobs that he has turned down until he gets this much-anticipated auto lift. I know that I’ll be turning to him for some work that he has been promising me from all the help I have provided for him during this whole process of getting his shop built and ready for business.
My first experience at a Dicks Last Resort was a rip-roaring, rowdy time with good food, plenty of cold beer, and a wait staff that instigated all kinds of fun and mischief throughout the crowd. It was so much fun I couldn’t wait to go back.
Alas, the first Dick’s Last Resort was in San Antonio and I haven’t been back to that one. But I have been to others and they have all been just as much fun. I’ve been to the Dicks in Chicago, which is up at Navy Pier. I’ve also been in the one in Myrtle Beach, and that one had a rascal for a waiter and even the manager was in on the pranks and jokes.
If you ever have the chance and want to have so much fun you can hardly stand to leave, go to a Dick’s Last Resort. There are some people who take their kids to this place, but I promise you will have a better time if you keep the group to adults only. The jokes and the banter is above the heads of the little people and you don’t want to be distracted or inhibited now, do you?
I’ve never checked their website before now, even their website is colorful, entertaining, and interactive check it out at http://www.dickslastresort.com/. See what their joke of the day is and take a look to see if there is a Dicks Last Resort anywhere near you are, it looks like they have even more locations than I thought.
A couple of times a month I make sure to take the time and visit some of the websites and blogs that are dedicated to photography. I have always enjoyed taking pictures, but I am rarely happy with they way they come out. I really wish that I had taken a course in photography. I know that it isn’t too late to do just that. It’s just there are so many things that keep me from being able to take any type of class, but it is always in the back of my mind, especially when I look at some of the wonderful photographs like this wedding photographer raleigh nc, at azulphotography.com. It brings me such joy to see such great pictures that I would never have the opportunity to view and enjoy if not for the good ol’ World Wide Web.
I never had the “dream wedding” so I don’t have any pictures of my wedding day. Maybe that was an omen right from the start that the relationship/wedding was not supposed to happen and/or last. Of course there is still plenty of time for me to get married again. I’m in no hurry, especially since I have a child and really don’t want to mess with her head until she is older anyway. I would love to have a nice big wedding, not a huge one, pulling off a wedding is a lot of hard work and they don’t come cheap.
Interesting how many different types of sleep disorders that are now being treated for these days. Sleep, or the lack of it, is a hot topic of discussion and concern for many people, so many studies are being done, media attention is rampant and sleeping disorder centers are popping up all over all in an effort to make us all sleep better at night in today’s crazy and hectic fast paced world that we are now living in.
The economy and all its issues has taken its toll on so many people, stress is overwhelming and sleeping issues are a major concern and the need for treatment is growing by the bounds. Stress is something that affects your health, mind, body and soul, and we have more than enough of it to go around at this point.
The Internet offers an avenue to take in order to research the issue and find the right doctor and treatment center for any sleeping disorders that are invading our sleeping patterns. Snoring, sleep apnea, insomnia, bed wetting, restless leg syndrome, narcolepsy, sleep walking, night sweats and even jet leg, are all examples of sleeping concerns that treatment is now readily available, affordable and accessible to more people each year.
As my father ages it is becoming harder and harder to find and purchase gifts for him for all the numerous gift giving occasions that pop up all year-long. A gift card for one of his favorite restaurants is always a welcomed gift, since my mother really enjoys getting out of the house and having a nice meal that she didn’t have to shop for, prepare, serve and ultimately clean up after. But I think my mother enjoys it more than he does since he swears that his bride of over 45 years is still the best cook ever, one of the reasons that he decided to marry her. That along with the fact that when he met her mother he saw that she wasn’t over weight and as most people know you can get a pretty good idea of what a woman will look like in the future by looking at her mother.
Anyway, back to the subject of finding a good gift for my Dad. His birthday is in the middle of March, which is right around the corner and I don’t want to wait until the last minute. I do know that he has been looking at various diamond blades, but I’m just not sure exactly which type he needs and wants. Believe me, there is a huge variety of diamond blades that I have run across while looking online at some off the sites that I have run across. I am starting to think that a gift card would be in order, presented to him with the understanding that we will sit down together in front of the computer and find the best deal for the one(s) that he wants and needs and place the order together. Not that I don’t trust him to use the gift card in the way I want him to, heck he could use it for anything after it leaves my hands, that is totally up to him. But I would like to spend some good “quality time” with him looking around online, and I’m sure that I would learn a few things along the way. A win/win situation as far as I’m concerned.
