My son-in-law (John) on the left is probably the best thing that ever happened to our daughter. He's an awesome guy and we love him like a son! His biggest fault is he's NOT a McCain follower - in his opinion he doesn't want more of the same as the last eight years. We've had many discussions over this and I will continue to try to sway him....but for now I've got him good with this one. John is in marketing and the other day someone from McCain Potatoes was in his office, so he managed to get his (20 comments)
What's Wrong Here? - 08/24/08 06:40 PM
So, I'm getting ready to go out and went to put my make-up on and there's NONE left! My husband being the awesome guy he is, volunteered to go to the local, nearby 'better' department store and pick me up some. This makeup is not the cheapest in the world .... it's about $40 a bottle (regular price)....I'm all out, I have a gift certificate so it's worth the price and not driving to the outlet mall to pick it up....or so I thought. He goes to the cosmetic counter and tells the clerk 'I want one just like this'....same brand, (12 comments)
The Bias of Medical Care Providers Towards Aging - 08/17/08 10:15 PM
Several years ago I earned a National Association of REALTORS® designation which better qualified me for working with a growing age group in this world - 55+. The Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) classes taught us about the special needs of the senior citizen. Although I'm in this age group it is still good to be taught and know all of the special needs. There's age restricted communities to think about (the pro's and cons of living in one of these communities), proximity to hospitals and doctors offices; when selling do you want to buy something smaller or move into an (6 comments)
NV, Las Vegas: Spring Mountain Ranch State Park - 08/08/08 10:05 AM
Just outside of the city of Las Vegas is a little known, but becoming more popular, state park. Spring Mountain Ranch is located in the Red Rock Canyon, between west Summerlin and Blue Diamond (off of highway 160). Originally inhabited by the Paiute Indians who were drawn there by the many springs....it touts 520 acres of hiking trails, a visitor center, a group use area, and an outdoor theater The park is open from 9am to dusk, the visitor center from 10am to 4pm offers tours at noon, 1pm and 2pm, with a 3pm one added on weekends. Entrance costs are (8 comments)
This afternoon as I left the office around 3pm and sauntered out into the 104°, I was not surprised by the overcast skies, the distant roar of thunder, and an occasional streak of lightening to the southeast.. It's not uncommon for Las Vegas to have monsoon storms during the months of July and August. The temperature dropped quickly as the storm rolled in (down to 85°). As I drove towards home the rain started to fall, and it came down fast and furiously. The roads flood quickly here in these kinds of rains. 2" of rain in 45 minutes is (11 comments)
THIS IS HAPPENING RIGHT HERE IN OUR OWN COUNTRY! - 08/07/08 01:16 AM
We Must Stop This Immediately! Have you noticed that stairs are getting steeper . Groceries are heavier . And, everything is farther away. Yesterday I walked to the corner and I was dumbfounded to discover how long our street had become!
And, you know, people are less considerate now, especially the young ones. They speak in whispers all the time! If you ask them to speak up they just keep repeating themselves, endlessly mouthing the same silent message until they're red in the face! What do they think I am, a lip reader?
Las Vegas has always been noted for it's HIGH temps during the months of June, July, and August. Normally in July Las Vegas has 115º temps at least twice. The picture to the left was taken during the summer of 2007 in the middle of July. The time is 5:30 p.m. Now THAT IS HOT! But it seems July 2008 was unusual cool....the highest 'official' temperature (normally taken at McCarran Airport) for July 2008 was ONLY 111º. Will the cooling trend continue for the month of August? We'll see....today, the first day of August, the 'official' high was 108º. (12 comments)
