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.

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.

Anyone who knows anything about the game of golf and lives near or on the east coast knows that there are many Myrtle Beach Resorts that have some awesome golf packages to offer. I prefer the North Myrtle Beach area and have been going there for as long as I can remember. My whole family is into golfing and it is a sport that anyone can play along with being a great way for a family to spend good times together doing. Now that the winter weather is going to be breaking I’m itching to get out on the greens and I hope that I can squeeze a game into this weekend’s plans.

My folks have indicated that they would like to be able to have as many of the family, that can manage it, to take a long weekend some time this summer at one of the Oceanfront Myrtle Beach Resorts and get some golfing in together. I’m sure that we could go online and find some good deals with plenty advance notice. I just Googled “Oceanfront Myrtle Beach Resort” and came up with nice ideas and options that I’d like to discuss over this Sunday’s Super Bowl’s game and family dinner.

With most of us getting some money back from our taxes I would think many of us should be able to pull it off.  It sounds like a wonderful idea that I hope we can put together. The Avista Resort is one of the Myrtle Beach Resort links that popped up that has gotten my vote so far. And it’s in the North part of Myrtle Beach, now how about that!

We are finding out that most of our diets are not allowing our bodies to receive all the vitamins and minerals that we so desperately need in order to maintain a healthy life. B17 is just one of the many nutrients our body needs and we now know that one of the best way to get that B17 is to eat organic apricot kernels. You can eat them like alone, but they are on the bitter side. You can also prepare and eat them dipped in honey;  ground and sprinkled on a sandwich or salad; in a blended drink; inside a dried apricot; or add them to your favorite trail mix.

Since I have a sweet tooth and don’t enjoy most things that taste bitter, I have tried them dipped in honey and I can’t tell you how yummy they are prepared that way. I am trying so hard to eat healthier. I want to be around when my daughter graduates, gets married and makes me a grandmother. Most of my friends are all ready grandparents and they are always talking how great it is, I want to find out for myself and if I don’t start eating right, exercising and taking care of myself all the way around, I just might not be around to see for myself.
