You would have to be living under a rock some where in the desert not to know that being “Green” is the buzz word these days. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for it. My parents were from the 70′s (the hippie days) and were very much in tune with environmental issues. So they raised us kids to be in tune with Mother Earth as much as possible. Recycling has always been a big issue then and it still is. I drive people crazy with my recycling issues, but that’s OK. I just want my kids, my grandchildren and their kids to have trees and clean water and clean air to breath well after I’m dead and gone.
So I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised to find that website hosting is doing what they can do in order to become as “Green” as possible. Web Hosting by FatCow is now powered by 100% wind energy. Isn’t that awesome? I understand that several other web site hostings are going green, so I wanted to put the word out to look for a website hosting that is participating in this type of change. Change really can be a good thing, sometimes.
Credit Card Offers need to be checked out thoroughly before signing on the dotted line in today’s world. A good place to find information on different credit card offers and companies is provided on line at CardHub.com. I have found it to be a valuable tool in my search for a credit card that I can use specifically for gasoline purchases. One that will provide me with some type of reward each time I use it, and with as many trips as we take to the gas stations these days, I should be able to rack up some nice cash back or rebates if I take my time and educate myself with the numerous credit card companies that are just begging for my business.Once I clicked on & selected each category option preference that was provided me on this site, it narrowed the search down to 18 different types of cards being offered for me to review. It certainly was a pretty easy process, for someone who knows what they are looking for, such as myself. Visa, Discover, Master Card, American Express, all have offers right now, and I finally decided on going with the Citi Professional Card with the Thank You Network, Master Card, that offers a variety of rewards, that will make me a satisfied consumer each time I use the card at gas stations, restaurants, rental cars, and office supply businesses.
So if you are interested in finding a good credit card offer, this really is a brilliantly set up web-site, and be sure you check out the Editor’s Picks while you are at it. Please note that CardHub.com has worked hard to put all this information together for your convenience, but they do not guarantee the accuracy of the information listed, and that they urge you to go to the credit card companies web-site and double check on the information before applying, good information to know before hand, wouldn’t you say!
Wow the metronome that I remember using back when I was a kid taking piano lessons for the lady who lived on the corner of our street, sure look a whole lot different from the one that I was so determined to keep up with. I hated those piano lessons, but my mother insisted and for three long years once a week I marched myself down to the corner and really tried my best to do my parents proud, but it just wasn’t in the cards for me at that time. I would love to take piano lessons now but I don’t think my mother would consent to paying for them the way she did back then.
The metronome guitar center that resembles the one that I used, looks much like this one:
winter wood metronome
While the ones that are available and being used today look like this:
used boss dr. beat
What a huge difference to get your tick tock on!
School Lockers aren’t something that many of us think about after leaving high school. But I went to see one of my younger cousins in a summer school play that was held at one of the local middle schools last night and noticed how the Lockers have changed since my days in school. I know that I got bigger so things like that should look smaller, but my goodness these Lockers where tiny. I can’t imagine how these kids cram all the things that they need into these small areas. I mean during the winter you have a coat, boots, scarfs, etc. not to mention the book bag and all of the books and supplies that are needed to be stored in there.
We used to have Wood Lockers as our Gym Locker, now they were small, but you didn’t have to keep much in those. Good thing because they didn’t smell very good, but they served their purpose. I don’t think that kids even use those Gym Lockers anymore, they don’t have to dress out like we did, nor do they require them to shower after gym. What’s up with that? I’ll bet these middle schools don’t smell very good, I feel sorry the teachers that have to smell those hormonal monsters each and every day. Especially right after gym.
