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!
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.
I can’t ever remember a time that I didn’t want to be behind the wheel of a Jeep of my very own. I’ve been hoping that this year’s tax refund would be enough for me to put a good down payment and have the rest financed on a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport. I’ve been spending some good quality time looking around online at the Jeeps that are for sale at some of the local dealerships that aren’t too far away for me to take test drives for the Jeeps that I find.
Check out this sweet looking Jeep that I found at the same Chicago area Chrysler Jeep Dodge Dealer that my brother bought his last vehicle at.
Their website http://www.riveroakscjd.com is one of the better ones for dealerships that I’ve seen, making it so easy for you to maneuver around in and it has all the wonderful ways to take advantage of today’s technology that the good old Internet has to offer. You can schedule a test drive, make an offer, request more information, send a friend or relative an email with all the vehicle information and pictures of the vehicle that you are interested in. You can view the window sticker, find the Kelley Blue value, watch a video along with all the other pertinent information on the vehicle in question all online. I can’t find or think of a thing that is provided all ready for me, that will make this task a bit easier to tackle.
Gone are the days of having to bounce around from dealership to dealership all over town and sometimes out of town or even in a totally different state for that matter, in order to find the perfect mode of transportation that I plan on spending so much time in for many years to come. It can take so much work, time and gas doing it the old fashioned way so I’m ever so grateful, once again, for the Internet.
I plan on getting my taxes done this weekend. I know it’s last minute, but that’s me. I’m the kind that will be late for her own funeral! I have no idea what to expect when it will be over and done with, but I guess as long as I don’t end up having to pay anything I should be happy, right?
