I guess the new thing around here is not only going to the store and starting a gift registry if you’re getting married or having a baby but also sending out a list of gifts you might want for your up coming birthday.  Has anyone else run into something like this? I have a friend that is having a big birthday party and they sent out this list of things they want.

One of the things was a set of ultrasone headphones. Personally I had no idea what they were other than just headphones so I did a search for them.  Boy was I surprised at how expensive they were.  Luckily I found some that were more reasonable than on some other sites. One thing is for sure, I would never send out a list of items I wanted like they did. I mean, it’s okay for a kid to give you a list of things they want but an adult??? I just found it odd, or is it me that’s the odd one here?

I’d love to hear anyone else’s thoughts on this. Times are always changing, new traditions always being brought into the picture. But who ultimately decides on what is the right thing to do. Think about it, we don’t even have the real Dear Abby or the real Dear Ann to turn to  for “proper etiquette” to these days.

Today on the way home I was coming around a corner at 35 mph and hit a patch of Black Ice. I ended up with the rear end off the side of the road for just a bit before I managed to get it back under control right before the SUV, that was coming at me, hit me head on. The look on the guys face as we went by each other will stick in my mind for a very long time!

I have to tell you that after the 3rd grade I’m pretty useless as far as math goes. Thank God for calculators, I’d be lost with out mine, I can tell you that. I’ve always been the one to help the kids with there homework but sometimes it can be a bit over whelming and I just have to throw my hands up in the air and declare it an impossibility.

Now that the kids are getting older and are in middle and high school it has really turned ugly. I’m just no good with Statistics help with their Statistics problems that they seem to keep bringing home. Anything but math and we would be good to go.

I’ve been doing a bit of research online in finding a statistics tutor that can step up to the plate and lend a hand, when needed. Tutorvista.com has a complete line of tutoring assistance from the earliest of grades all the way up to the college years. You can try them for free, to see what they are all about and then sign up for further assistance if warranted.  They offer an unlimited monthly package for a really decent and affordable price, worth checking into.

Of course Reeds sells Citizen watches on their jewelry website. There are still plenty of watches out there even though so many people tend to use their various pieces of technology to tell them the time. There was a time that the sales of watches really started to decline but there was a major push in the watch making and selling industry to get people to start buying and uses watches once again. Watches aren’t just for telling time, they are able to make a fashion statement if you know what you are doing.

I know that I own several wristwatches and I have to be honest, I don’t wear any of them anymore. In fact the last time I tried one on the battery was dead so I tried all the others and not a one was working. It looks like I need to gather them all up and take them to get all new batteries and even start wearing one every now and then.

Well my week end plans are shot. The weather man warned us that we were in for some snow, but since when have I ever listened to him? It has been snowing since the early morning hours and it is still coming down hard and it is past dinner time. We must have at least 6 inches by now. I went out and brushed off the car and the truck earlier, but now it is in need of another, oh well – there is always tomorrow. Nothing much else to do in this type of weather, sigh………………..
