This is just south of us on Hwy 75 south. A farmer does it with his tractor and not sure if he uses a plow or a disc. He uses GPS to get the letters readable. He has done this every fall for several years now. Here’s the view from the flight pattern into OFFUTT AIR FORCE BASE ( Bellevue , NE., just south of Omaha ).
It’s good to see that there are people out there that care and are finding ways to show it in a surprising variety of ways!
It seems like every time I turn around I am looking for inkjet cartridges to keep my printer printing, seeing as how dependent we have become on our computers at work and home these days. I’m having a hard time keeping my costs down lately, with price tags continuing to rise and my paycheck not getting a bit larger in the process I am really struggling with what used to be every day items that I would run and out buy when needed. Don’t get me wrong I have always looked for cheap ink, but now I’m digging even deeper and finding deals on the Internet for many items that I used to buy inside the many stores that we now have at our disposal in our ever growing town.
Instead of rummaging through all of the numerous sales ads that come in the local newspapers, I’ve been spending more time online looking for deals that I don’t have to go out and find on my own. And look what I found today at Inkgrabber.com while trying to find a deal on printer ink, this is right up my alley and right on time. I’ll take 10%off and free shipping any day, thank you very much!
Just check out this “green” VW Beatle that was on display in Germany recently. I have always loved the Volkswagen Beatle and the good lord knows that I’m doing all that I can in order to become as “green” as possible. So this really caught my eye, but I don’t think it is something that I would enjoy owning and driving around town in.
Green Punch Buggy, no tag backs! Long live the VW Bug!
If anyone deserves a break in their lives it is certainly our military personnel who have gone above and beyond and put their lives on the line for us all back home in the land of the free and the home of the brave, right? Most of us know or are related to someone who has or is serving our country, so we know how hard it is for them in so many ways, so any assistance that they are entitled to is a good thing. The Post 911 GI Bill is designed to help them in many ways, one of them being their education.
My brother-in-law is planning on taking advantage of this Post 911 GI Bill and is looking into taking some classes online with the well known Ashworth College that has a huge selection of online courses at very affordable prices. So along with their low prices combined with the benefits offered with the Post 911 GI Bill he should be go to go in a few years with a degree that will help him get a better job when his time is up in the military.
He is looking forward to taking classes online, which will be better than having to attend regular classes that would interfere with his very busy schedule on and off the base. I’m so proud of him and wish him all the luck in world in this challenge that will forever change his and my sister’s lives forever. I can’t wait for graduation, I’ll be the first one to be there to show my support and love for this man who my sister has placed so much trust in the last couple of years.
Some how I managed to sleep through some pretty hard core rains last night. I must have been really tired, normally all of that noise would have woken me up. This morning when I turned on my laptop the first thing that came up were several stories, along with numerous disturbing pictures, about all the storms and the damage that they caused all across the south. Of course I immediately called my sister that lives in Alabama to make sure that she and her family were OK and thankfully they were fine but she had some pretty crazy stories to tell about their experiences during last night’s weather in her area.
One of the pictures taken that is on Yahoo right now really got to me and so I cut and pasted the photo here to share with my readers in case they didn’t see it anywhere else.
As you can see only the stairs and flowers (with all the fragile flower tops left completely undamaged) remain Saturday, April 16, 2011 after mother nature’s severe winds tore a mobile home off it’s lot late Friday night in Boone’s Chapel, Ala. I truly think that I will remember this very interesting but devastating photo for the rest of my live.
