I grew up in a house that always had cable. When I first moved away from my parent’s home I moved in with a friend who all ready had the house hold basically set up and we had cable once again. Since cable was all that I knew, when I finally moved out on my own I hooked up automatically with the local cable company and have been with them ever since.
There has been much ado about comparing plans and prices with your TV provider, cell and home phone provider, insurance providers and the like since most of us have found ourselves struggling with our finances since our government got us all involved with this economy that is in crisis. I have checked into some things, I’ve switched over on some, negotiated better deals with others, but never really looked into switching over to Satellite TV until lately.
I had several friends and co workers that subscribe to Satellite TV and I have been approached by one of my good friends at work who wants me to switch over and that way we would both be eligable for a $50 gift card for the referral. We all could use some extra cash these days, so I promised that I would go home and check out my options on the Internet, which I did last night. I have decided to go ahead and make the switch over to Direct TV. I’m up for a change and I’ll tell my friend at work at Monday. That will be a nice way to start the week for the both of us.
I have never been much of a breakfast person. It can take a couple of hours before I really want to put anything of substance into my mouth. A nice cup of hot tea with sugar and milk will keep me for an hour or two. If I really need to put something into my stomach I have gotten into the habit of eating yogart and Yoplait is the best that I have found anywhere, particulary the Strawberry and Banana flavor. Yoplait has a lot of flavors and it depends on what store I go to as to what flavors they have, but they generally have the Strawberry and Banana ones, that is if they are not sold out. Hard to believe that I have found something that I link that is good for me! Will wonders ever cease?
It amazes me that there is such a teen cocaine addiction problem these days. What with the economy in such a mess, with people losing their jobs, their vehicles, their homes with many losing their families because of financial issues and failures in their family life, every time you turn around. Cocaine is a very expensive drug, not something that most kids are able to afford on a regular basis, which is what an addict requires, regularity and often. The only way these kids can afford that much cocaine is if they come from a family that has and hands out a lot of cash or if they are dealing the drug that feeds their addiction, and in this case it is cocaine. That is a lot of money changing hands in school, malls, school yards, back yards, basements and all the other places that these transactions take place in. It appears that their math skills are just fine when it concerns drugs and alcohol abuse!
The Internet is full of testimonials and facts that bring us some insight of the youth trends that we are always trying to figure out how to alter in order to save families and save lives. There are treatment centers popping up left and right that are available to help with drug and alcohol abuse in all age brackets. So many people are turning to ways that make things seem all right, if only for a few minutes, hours and possibly days. I think we are all guilty of that at some level in some way, but hopefully we don’t hurt ourselves or anyone else along the way, right?
Anything you are giving your attention to is an invitation to the essence of it.
For example, believing “I want to feel peaceful, but it will not come,” is the same as saying, “Come to me, absence of peacefulness, which I do not want.”
When you are thinking of peacefulness in the way that will make it come to you, you will feel good. When you are thinking of peacefulness in the way that keeps it from coming to you, you will always feel badly.
That is how you can recognize anticipation and hope. Re-frame your inner dialogue and invite in what it is you want.
Step out of your way; be open.
I know that I am not alone when I say that one of the pains of owning a printer, copier and or a fax machine is not only the constant paper jams that we have to deal with but having to dish out so much money, and on a such a frequent and regular basis mind you, to keep them supplied with printer ink. I seem to always be scoring the Sunday paper fliers for sales and bargains to be found on all of the inkjet cartridges that we have in just this one house hold! Then after matching which cartridge is needed for which machine, and if it needs color or just black, or both, to see if those are the ones being offered in the sales ad that you found. So many rules, restrictions, limits, exceptions and the rest of the real fine print that we all need to read, I just get so darned frustrated with it all.
There have been a few times that I went through all of the hassle of getting all of the correct information needed for my purchases and drove into town specifically for the purpose of bringing home a bag full of cheap ink for one and all, only to find out that they were sold out of the one for my printer and one other time the it was the victim of a miss print, a local newspaper’s typo that they were having a hard time with living up to with the limited stock that they had of this particular cartridge that was in such demand at such a low price that was in print for the whole community and surrounding area to read and jump in their car to race down there for the deal of the month. What a mess, that store manager had a long, hard shift that day. He didn’t look happy one bit!
