That's what I have.  At least I am blaming it on this.  I just don't feel like doing anything except watching television and being lazy.  Any one else in this mood?  I hope I don't stay like this for the rest of the year.  Of course the way home sales are going I could.  I do have one commercial ...
I am aware everyone is posting the same thing.  But I mean this to everyone who takes the time to read this blog.  I am thankful for my family, my health and for living in the greatest country in the world bar none.  Even in this economy our standard of living is second to none.  Don't eat to muc...

 From a friend of mine. Heads up if you tend to give gift cards around the holidays, you need to be careful that the cards will be honored after the holidays. Stores that are planning to close after Christmas are still selling the cards through the holidays even though the cards will be worthless...

I was in Pensacola, Florida this weekend watching my daughters soccer team compete in the NCAA Tournament.  After their win Friday the coach was nice enough to let her go eat dinner with us.  We decided to eat seafood at a local restaurant in town.  This placed was packed, so i figured it was goo...
