U.S. Presidential Politics

Hurricane Ike

I received an email a little while back with some horrific pictures of devastation that Hurricane Ike caused. I felt so bad for the people in that area because of all the mess they have to deal with. It blows my mind to see what a force of nature such as a hurricane can do to a city. I live in a state that has it's share of tornadoes and they are pretty devastating too so I can really understand in some ways what these people are going through.

New Suit

A couple of weeks ago when my grandma passed away my dad and mom took my brother and I shopping to buy a new suit. I haven't had a suit since I was a little boy. It is nice now to have one for special times and it was very nice to have one to wear at my grandma's funeral. My brother and I were pallbearers so it was nice to be more dressed up. Family and friends said we looked like a couple of gangstas.

Well, it is that time when my parents have to take down their pool.
I wonder if it will be down by the time we get home this weekend. I'm sure my mom hasn't been in it lately cause the nights have been pretty chilly and that makes for very cold water. I'm sure she misses it already. Oh well, there's always next summer.


When I was younger we use to go camping. My parents bought a cool camper trailer that had a separate bedroom for them and my brother and I would have the rest of it for us so that we could stay up late. We use to bring movies along and watch them till we fell asleep. Many times in the evenings my family would go inside the camper and we would play UNO and if we didn't do that we would sit out by the campfire and make smores and sit around and relax. During the day we would go swimming if there was a lake or do some hiking or biking. We loved camping and my family made lots of fun memories together.

VoIP Phone Systems

Do you own your own business or help run a business? You may be interested in knowing about the VoIP phone systems by Xpander. These phone systems & virtual web-based voice services are like nothing your business has ever experienced. You will find that these phone systems are the most flexible and user friendly systems that are available today. Xpander IP phone and virtual phone systems protect businesses from ever suffering a phone outage. They can even withstand a hurricane. May businesses in Florida have truly tested this. The benefits of having a VoIP phone system are great for big and small businesses.

Classic Television Shows

I really enjoy watching classic television shows. I Love Lucy is probably one of the greatest shows ever made. She was one talented lady. TV Land plays a lot of good ole shows like Leave it to Beaver, The Munsters, The Beverly Hillbillies and The Andy Griffith Show. Even if they are older they are still pretty funny.


Blogging for me is a great way to express myself and also to make some extra money. I like giving my opinion on certain topics and I also like to share things that interest me like music, movies and daily activities. I am glad that I got started doing this with the help of my cousin.

Online Degree

There are many people who are holding down a job and trying to support a family but still want to go to college and get a degree. Having a full time job may not allow these people to attend a college so the best thing for them to do is to get a degree online.
Capella University makes that possible for people who want to continue their education and still hold down a job or be a stay at home mom. Even people that don't fit in those situations want to do online college courses, I know because my brother does it. Now you can get your degree or masters without leaving your home. How convenient is that.

Fall Leaves

I've been noticing that last couple of weeks that the leaves are starting to turn colors and the crops are drying up in the fields. I guess it is that time after all I think the first day of fall is on Monday. It just doesn't seem possible. It hardly felt like we had a summer. Oh well, time marches on.


My brother's birthday is next Wednesday. He will be 23. We are going home this weekend to celebrate. It has been a few weeks since we have been home so we are both really looking forward to it.
My mom always fixes our favorite foods so we eat really well and we will get to see some of our friends that we haven't seen for awhile.
It should be a good time and it sounds like the weather is going to be perfect.

Presidential Dollars

The Cable Shopping Network or CSN is a television show that has many collectible items on it. I have ran across it later in the evening with I am surfing the channels. Many times I will notice that they are advertising the presidential dollars. They have a cool selection of different ones that a person can purchase for their collection or just because. The price range varies and no matter what your budget there is something for everyone. If these coins are not something you are interested in then you should check out more products by accessing CSN at their website.

Cold Stone

Have you ever had Cold Stone ice cream? It is the greatest. It is kind of expensive but the experience is worth it. This summer my brother and I were with my mom in Minneapolis and she had never been to one. So, we decided to go and it was fun to watch her watch them mix up her ice cream. She loved it and said she definitely wants to do that again and so do I.


I love this time of year. The stores are filling up with fall decorations, Halloween costumes and candy. As a Christian, I probably shouldn't like Halloween but I do because I like to make our place look cool and spooky. We don't do anything with devils and demons because that is just stupid. My brother and I like walking through the Halloween sections and stores to check out the cool costumes.

Rare Coins

I really don't have any kind of special collection of anything. My brother collects Starwars stuff and has quite a collection. My dad has some pretty cool old coins that I enjoy looking at but he doesn't have a big collection of them. I think if I could I would be interested in collecting rare coins. I would check out the website www.zoomcoin.com because on this website there is information on there how to get started. It is also interesting to see the rare coins they have on this site. You will find if you check out zoomcoin.com that it is full of interesting information. Monaco Rare Coin offers you the finest rare coin values in the world.

Math Class

I was pretty freaked out when I first started classes this fall. I heard that I was going to have to take another math class and math is not one of my strong points. Surprisingly enough, my instructor is awesome. He is in the habit of asking several times during class if everyone understands. I am doing remarkable well and that is a huge relief to me.

Ghost Hunting

My friends and I have done a lot of ghost hunting this summer so far. We like to go hang out in cemeteries and we've checked out an abandoned school. It gets freaky sometimes but we have a lot of fun doing it. We know that we have seen some things that have been pretty scary. The last ghost hunt we did was we stayed at a house that belongs to a woman who works with my mom. She said some of her family have heard and seen things in this house. No one lives in it right now.

Beauty Jobs

I know of some people I went to high school with that chose cosmetology for their career choice. They are still going through the school process but will soon be looking for a beauty job. The Internet is a great tool for job hunting. The website www.beautyjobs.com is a great help for friends like mine who will be soon looking for a job. If they are interested in relocating, this site lists beauty jobs from coast to coast. They can apply online and seek out businesses that are hiring. If I were in their shoes I would definitely look into this.

The Courts

In past summers the major hang out place is the courts. Many high school and some college kids from around the area gather there and either just hang out or play a lot of basketball. It's been a good time and we have stayed there till early in the morning. When my brother and I go home to visit we usually go to the courts and hang out with people we haven't seen for awhile.

Happiness is Pets

Happiness is Pets, don't you think? Pets are so loyal and loving. They are there for you in good times and bad. They fill a lonely place in our life when no one else is around. My grandma recently passed away and my Uncle lives alone. He said he would be fine to go home alone because he really isn't alone, he lives with his dog, Sam. Sam is his best buddy and he wouldn't want to be without him.
Pets are wonderful for elderly people, also. They are there to help them feel love and if they are lonely they know they have their pet with them to fill that void.


When I started school I thought I had a job in place at the school I am attending. I have been trying and trying to reach my boss and he does not return my emails or calls. It is quite frustrating because I could use this job and a paycheck. I guess I will continue to look for another job and we'll see what happens to this one.

Minnesota Vikings

I am a huge fan of the Minnesota Vikings and my dad is too. They played yesterday and the game was so close. My dad couldn't get it on his tv so I kept calling him with updates on how the game was going. It came down to the wire and I thought it was going to go into overtime. The other team, the Colts, kicked a field goal and won the game by 3 points. That was not cool. I was pretty disappointed.

Iowa Hawkeyes

The big game between the Hawks and the Cyclones was today. I'm a fan of the Hawks and was so glad to see they had won the game. Everyone gets so excited about this game each year and there is so much about it on television. I'm just glad the Hawks finally beat the Cyclones. This is a good day in football.

I have an uncle that has not been feeling well for months now. He has gone through many tests and has seen a few doctors about this problem. He has had to miss a lot of work because he is too wore out and hurting all the time. He has been told that they can't find anything wrong with him but he is continuing to seek out medical advice. My mom and other family members have been online searching out some different ailments to see if my uncles symptoms relate to a certain illness or disease. The perfect website to research an ailment like Fibromyalgia, Vaginitis or migraines is at https://online.epocrates.com. This website has some great and helpful information and if you are like people in my family you will appreciate the information they offer.

Labor Day Weekend

It was nice to be home for Labor Day weekend but when a person has no income it can get long and boring. I basically just sat in my room and was on my computer a lot.
I can't wait till I start getting a paycheck for working at my new job. That should help so I can go see a movie or something.
