Have you ever been to Maine in the summer with no air conditioning? - 08/18/08 10:21 PM
My father in law and his wife go to Maine every year in August. They want us to go but we won't go. They stay at this place that has no air conditioners. My F-I-L tries to tell us that it is cool and they don't need AC. I think his idea of cool and our idea of cool are definately different. We keep our home around 66-68 while we are home. People have joked that we could hang meat in our house. We like it cool during the summer and I really don't care what it costs. If I am (1 comments)
When is it time to move on? - 08/17/08 06:21 PM
In life we are often faced with decisions that we would rather not make. I have seen people in relationships that weren't working stay there because they thought it was easier than moving on. I have seen people stay in jobs that weren't fulfilling, or that they hated because they were afraid of what might be on the other side of the fence. We could talk about all sorts of things. There are a few ways to determine if and when you should move on. How you feel about the situation, what are the pros versus the cons. Are you in (4 comments)
IORG & DeMolay growing in NJ - 08/10/08 11:36 AM
Well we had a great weekend. Karen was like a kid again having fun and pulling pranks. Laughing with the girls. My brother-in-law Jimmy got appointed to the Grand Executive Committee. Both my neices received floor stations.. Renee Grand Hope plus a Grand Rep to MA. Michele got Grand Lecturer and Grand Rep to Kentucky. We are so proud of them. The State Master Counselor for NJ DeMolay was there as well and mentioned that they are also growing and are already ahead of last years total new memberships. These two youth organizations are affliated with the F&A Masons, Eastern Star, (0 comments)
mini weekend getaway with family at IORG convention - 08/08/08 02:51 PM
Here it is the middle of Aug and the NJ Order of Rainbow for Girls are having their convention. My wife is a former rainbow girl and our 2 neices are still active. So the whole family gets involved. It is a great organization for girls. Teaches leadership, public speaking( by doing not classes), moral issues. Like all organizations you get out of it what you put into it. Almost the same as real estate. We left the office early so that Karen could get her nails done, pack and get down there before the rush hour traffic. Like all best (0 comments)
working out~starts hard but gets easier - 08/07/08 10:32 PM
We have been going to the gym a few days a week after work. In the beginning it was rough, didn't feel like it but we did it anyway. Now we look forward to it. One of the things that most people that just start out seem to complain about is they don't see results(after 1-2 weeks). I try to explain to them that you didn't get out of shape in 1-2 weeks what makes you think you can get back into shape that quick. The challenge is we live in a microwave society. Everyone wants everything yesterday without having to (0 comments)
gas prices dropping how low will they go - 08/06/08 10:30 PM
Have you noticed that the price of gas has been dropping. I can't remember what it was last year at this time because it went up so fast and furious. Let's hope that it drops just as fast and furious and gets back under 2.00 a gallon. Wishfull thinking... ok... when was that do you remember. I don't feel like looking it up on Ask or Google. How low does it have to go before it makes a difference in your budget? A few weeks left to summer so maybe people will go away for weekends. Keep the tires rolling. Sincerely, (2 comments)
dogs out the window- what makes them want to do that - 08/06/08 11:42 AM
I was stopped at a light and a car went by and there he is hanging out the window, ears flapping in the breeze, with a smile on his face from ear to ear. I remembered when we had our little Maltese, Tyler, he could barely get on the door handle let alone hang out the window. We would have to hold him out the window just so that he could be like the other dogs. It got me wondering this morning when I saw that as I remembered about Tyler,(how I miss him), what makes them want to do that. (3 comments)
The Bucket List- What does yours look like - 08/05/08 12:02 AM
My wife and I saw this movie over the weekend. (yea we are slow, what can I tell you). If you haven't seen the movie and plan on seeing it do not read this blog as I do not want to give away what happens in the movie to you. Yea sure it would be nice to have the money to do whatever you want the last few months of your life. My question is why wait until the end to enjoy the ride. What if you don't have the money to do everything you would do if money were no (4 comments)
