I myself have never experienced the act of getting engaged, I’m a confirmed bachelor and I plan to keep it that way, thank you very much. I do seem to be one of a dying breed. On the other hand my best friend, Gary, has proposed several times and has always been turned down, but it appears that it doesn’t stop him from trying. They have been dating each other for over seven years now, living together for the last two years and he is more than ready to make an “honest woman” out of her and to make his and her parents happy to see them stand in front of God and say those two words that will commit themselves to each other for the rest of their lives.
I’ve known Gary since the second grade and we have been the best of buds since the fourth grade. I never thought that he of all people would ever want to settle down and get married. But Julie completes him and I’ve never seen him happier so I am happy for the both of them and I’ve even consented to be his best man on their wedding day when and if that day ever happens.
Last week he tried once again and to every one’s surprise she (Julie) said yes and gladly allowed him to place the engagement ring that he has used time and time again on her finger. Gary and I spent hours online a few years ago at various types of engagement rings to find the the most perfect of Diamond engagement rings for his use and I’m glad that Vicki is proud to wear it on her finger.
Whiteflash.com is a great online resource for georgia jewelry with the most unique engagement rings for men and women and wedding bands as well that we found anywhere online. If you take the time to give them a look see make sure you check their wonderful selection of asscher cut diamonds 0,40 carat diamonds.
They take PayPal and offer free over night shipping, we all like free, right? And if you find them on Facebook and “Like” them you can receive special promotions and announcements which is a plus. Who ever thought that Facebook would have become such a popular place for people to hook up and communicate with other folks as well as give businesses the opportunity to get to know their customers as they are now doing more and more. It’s all good.
Been checking out the kobo ereader reviews in an attempt to find the best ereader out there for my teenaged daughter to purchase with her birthday money that she received last week. She seems to think that if she owns one of these that she will read more over the summer months, now how is a parent going to argue with that? She has never been a fan of reading until this last year, but really hates going to the library and there are not any books stores open around here. You have to drive well over an hour to find any book store and that really bites.
My oldest sister has always looked after me, she has been more like a mother to me than my own mother. I remember telling (or yelling at) my real mother that back when I was 15 and it upset my mother so bad that she sent me up to my room and put me on restriction for two weeks. But a fact is a fact and nothing can change the truth. I still look towards my sister for just about everything, we text each other almost every day, use the Yahoo Instant Messenger, Facebook posts and chats as well as our cell phones help us keep in constant contact and communication with each other.
My sister has taught me the value of looking before you leap concept in so many areas in life. I remember her telling me in my teen years that if it sounds too good to be true that it usually is too good to be true, a saying that proves to be so true time after time after time. She is also the responsible for getting me into personal computers back in the 80′s when they were first being sold to the general public. Our first computers were Macintosh, I have always had a soft spot for Mac’s since then but had to move over to the IBM one and their clones because the majority of places that I worked at didn’t use Mac’s so it became such a challenge that I finally had to give up my Mac while she still buys from Apple exclusively.
Last Christmas we made a good team finding good gift ideas for everyone on our shopping lists and then hunting around finding the best deal possible, online of course and getting the best bang for our bucks. I had heard of a site that has great products for sale at nomorerack.com and before I turned my sister onto it I took a few minutes to find and read nomorerack reviews as well as Googled “nomorerack scam” to make sure that this was a reliable company to deal with. It really would have sucked to be swindled during the holiday season, something that I can’t even imagine happening but certainly hear stories each year confirming that it does indeed happen, all to frequently, sigh…..
Anyway – nomorerack.com turned out to be a great site that helped us find a good amount of our gifts at affordable prices and Christmas went off without a hitch. My sister and I bought computer web cams for each other so that now we can actually see each other when we want to. Since she moved to San Diego I don’t get to see her as often as I would like. Sisters were not meant to be separated by such long distances but at least today’s technology gives us a lot of options to keep in touch.
