Had to laugh at tonight’s email from my mother of which she informs me to “send your parents this”  in which she provided me with a picture and the link to a website that sells the most amazing looking Berries and other edible goodies in gift baskets for all kinds of occasions. Since her birthday is right around the corner I am assuming that she is wanting this particular Cheesecake Trio and Full Dozen Giant Dipped Fancy Berries as one of her presents this year.

Doesn’t this look wonderful? I’ll have to order one for myself as well…..

  • 4 Berries Dipped in Milk with Chopped Almonds
  • 4 Berries Dipped in Dark with Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 4 Berries Dipped in White with Dark Swizzles
  • 3 Mini Chocolate Cheesecakes
  • Item #30005066
A delectable assortment of individual serving mini cheesecakes including a Classic New York cheesecake, a rich and smooth white chocolate cheesecake and a luscious chocolate Rocky Road cheesecake. With twelve Fancy Berries.

The news has featured a lot of big businesses that are closing due to this bad economy. I don’t think anyone expected the recession to last over 6 years and still no end in sight.

I was sad to see all the Hollywood Video and Blockbuster Video stores close. But now they are talking about the bookstores closing. The bookstores are blaming both Amazon and the new electronic readers, like Kindle.

I don’t know anyone who has a Kindle. I guess if the bookstores are all closing we will have no choice but to go buy a Kindle so we can still read.

Now is a good time to have someone come out and see just how energy efficient your home is. The hot weather is hitting us harder with each waking day and it will only get hotter and hotterer from here. The cost of cooling and heating our homes has sky rocketed and having an home energy audit is a great way to find out what you can do in order to make your home less costly to heat, as well as air conditioned come the hot weather months.

I had my home looked at last year and they were the ones that prompted me to purchase and have installed my energy efficient windows that I am so happy with. And I got a good tax break from getting them as well, so it was well worth the time and money that I spent on them, especially when I get my heating and a/c utility bill now. There are lots of companies that will come out and do this service for you. I used the Home Energy Team website and it worked quick and easy like for me so I feel comfortable passing this information along here today.

There is really only one thing that my wife wants for her birthday this year and that is a nice pearl necklace. Since I don’t know diddly squat about pearls I decided to look around online to see what is out there and where. I found that Reeds for honora pearls has some really nice pieces that I think she will like and that won’t put me in the poor house.

Check out this nice looking Honora Tahitian Pearl and Diamond Necklace 1/10ctw that I think will do just fine,

The scott kay engagement rings that my friend and coworker Shannon and I have been looking are simply drop dead gorgeous. I wish that the Internet was available back in the day of my engagement and wedding planning. These tasks are never easy but the Internet can certainly make these chores more fun as well as giving you more options. Shannon has it made in comparison, but it is still nerve racking at times.

I really don’t know how we managed to do anything without the use of our computers, at home as well as at work. I know that it wasn’t all that long ago when we used to communicate, shop and pay bills the good old fashioned way. But that was back in the eighties, when you do the math it has only been a few decades ago that are lives changed forever because of computers.
