Have you been working long hours day in and day out for your employer and you have finally had enough and need a much needed break? Do you want to travel to a faraway land where you are disconnected from the real world, technology and every other stress that affects your life? If so, then you need to head to the Expedia Inc website to plan and book your vacation quickly and easily. Now is the time to take your dream vacation with your partner so you can finally relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Choose a Place Where You Can Relax and Unwind
If you want to truly relax on your vacation, you should find a place where there aren’t thousands of tourists crammed into an all-inclusive resort for their spring break. You won’t find any rest and relaxation there, so make sure you find an upper scale hotel or resort that you can stay at. You will want to be able to lay out on the white sandy beaches without people literally on top of you. If you are set on an all-inclusive resort, you should consider going when college students aren’t on break.
Planning Your Vacation Online
It’s easy to plan your much needed vacation online. All you have to do is go to the travel deal and reservation website and start booking your flight, hotel room, rental car, or cruise. They also offer vacation packages in case you want to receive a deeper discount by booking everything at once. The website is easy to navigate through and you will be able to plan your vacation all with a click of a mouse. So start planning your vacation today so you can finally make some time for yourself.
Most people enjoy shopping, but many don’t enjoy going out to the brick and mortar stores to do it. According to the DealDash Review that I was reading on the huffingtonpost website DealDash makes shopping much more fun to those who want to enjoy the shopping experience without leaving the comforts of our own home. Of course the concept of shopping online isn’t a new one, many of us are doing more and more of our every day shopping via the Internet, but Deal Dash has made online shopping more like a game.
Deal Dash is a penny auction site, so I thought that maybe I would let people know about it here on my blog. I checked Deal Dash out for a few minutes and it does look pretty interesting, but I couldn’t bid on anything today because all of my money from my last paycheck was spent on Christmas items. But after Christmas is all over and done with I plan on going back and finding stuff that floats my boat and start placing some bids on things that I need for after the holidays. You can be sure I’ll be telling you all about it come the year 2013.
It feels pretty weird to get someone that you love and care about a Christmas present that you don’t even have a clue as to what it is. I have talked about my geeky younger brother who has turned out to be the family computer whiz that we all turn to with our computer problems these past couple of years. I swear I don’t know why he has decided not to make this his full time job instead of just piddling around with it and assisting the friends and families that utilize his skills and knowledge for free. I understand that he loves his full time job, but he certainly isn’t getting rich by running the local gas station that he has been managing for the past 10 years or so.
All he wants for Christmas is computer related products and I have agreed to purchase the eoncode web 2 print software for him since it was the last thing on his Christmas wish list that he emailed everyone, which is what our family has been doing these past couple of years. That way we all know who wants what and we can communicate so easily with emails. Who would have thought, ten years ago that we would be relying so heavily on the Internet to keep in touch with each other?
I just hope I got him the right one.
After all of the Christmas holiday shopping is done and over with, in a few weeks, a lot of people are continuing to do their every day shopping online after seeing how much money they can save by staying at home and finding deals on just about everything that you would ever need to buy. I have never enjoyed shopping. I don’t like anything involved in the whole process. With the price of gas sky rocketing and the economy still in turmoil, I’m just like everyone else in the fact that I have to watch every penny these days. So spending money on gas to go out just doesn’t make any sense. Then there is the parking issue, and having the long walk to and from the car, which can be a real pain especially in bad weather. That in it’s self is enough to keep me from venturing out to any store, any time of the year.
The crowds, the screaming babies, the unruly teenagers, the rude sales associates are no walk in the park either. So I’d just assume stay home, turn on my laptop, bring up offers.com to find what deals are out there and let my fingers do the walking on my keyboard to get my shopping done. We even have a grocery store that takes online orders and will deliver your groceries right to your door, now how easy is that. Isn’t the Internet awesome?
The start of boycotting started with me when Exxon had the huge oil spill in Alaska back in the mid 1980s. They were (and still are) very irresponsible with the actions that they took and with the lack of taking responsibility for the damage that occurred as well as the repercussions from their company and the “Exxon Valdez” that caused the whole mess. To this day Exxon is still not being held accountable to the fullest extent and it just irks me. So I have made it a habit not to purchase any gas from Exxon, nor Mobile gas, since they merged together a decade or so ago. I don’t mind using their restrooms, but that is the extent of my relationship with any Exxon or Mobile gas station, to this very day, some 25 years or so later.
Now BP has come into place now with their oil leak issues and we don’t even have to go any further than that since the news is still full of horror stories about that mess and won’t be going away any time soon. Since the leak first started and BP wasn’t there fixing it and doing what needed to be done I have made it a practice not to purchase or visit any of the BP stations that I’ve seen and I don’t plan on it any time soon.
I just heard that BP has settled the criminal charges for $4 billion in the spill and that a handful of supervisors have been indicted on manslaughter. That has just made by day, heck made my year! As you can tell by my boycotting of these huge oils companies how strongly I feel about these accountability issues, so this is a great victory, but unfortunately this doesn’t make things go away, there is still a long and hard road ahead of both area sue to this nonsense but at least it is a start that I’m grateful for hearing about.
