Leather Weather

With the arrival of spring I’m getting anxious to get on the back of a Harley Davidson. I have several friends that have some really nice scooters and are usually willing to take me out for a putt when I feel the need. This is perfect leather weather, so I guess I need to get on the phone, make some calls and see if I can get some riding in soon.


Today’s Trade Shows

Haven’t been to a trade show in many, many years. I used to try and attend several of them a year but I just haven’t had the opportunity as of late. A few days back a good lady friend of mine called and asked me to go to one with her next Saturday I have agreed to go and help her out and look forward to spending some time with her and hopefully finding this trade show of interest.

One good thing about trade shows is that they are normally held inside, so the weather is never much of an issue and the show goes on rain or shine, hot or cold. Trade shows are by far a great way to learn about different businesses and their services, products and opportunities. They have come a long way since the 90’s when they started coming around.

Safety in the Mountains

I love how Facebook has helped me reconnect with so many friends I used to have in the high school days. So many of us lost touch over the years, and I was not able to attend the last official reunion. But now I am finding several people who I liked a lot, and several of them have married or remarried so their last names are different now.

One of my best girlfriends from junior high school just popped up on Facebook and I’m trying to catch up with everything she has been doing. From her profile, it looks like she is married and has an adopted daughter. They’ve moved to Montana and she is working for the county’s agricultural department.

I have always been a little concerned about living in a remote area, but she assured me that an alarm system from home security gives her and Bobby the peace of mind at night while they sleep but also during the day while they are away working their jobs. The alarm system notifies police and her by phone if anything happens, and so far they have not had any issues at all. Funny, but I never realized that some people have to take steps to protect their homes from not only humans who might try to break in, but also from bears.

Of course, when you live that far out in a rural area, cable TV is not an option for hundreds of thousands of people. So to get TV programming, they found to a satellite package to subscribe to  and this works out for them great.

It was so very cool to find her on Facebook – with them in Montana, its not like I would ever run into either one of them in the local grocery store!

Feeling The Love With Allred Insurance

Having a good insurance agent can really pay off in so many ways. The allred insurance burlington nc has been such a good and positive experience throughout the years. There is no way I would ever even think about switching any of my insurance policies, although according to all of the commercial that we are bombarded with, there might be a cheaper rate out there with another company.

My father always says “If it ain’t broke, don’t try and fix it”

Another one of his favorite sayings is “If you can’t fix it with a hammer, get a bigger hammer”  LOL!

Elegant Waters

Last minute ordeals are not my cup of tea these days. I remember the days when I could just drop everything and go with the flow, but those days are long gone. I really miss the days of being so spontaneous, but it happens to the best of us, I fear.

Yesterday morning my sister called in a panic and made be promise to go with her that night to a big party that she could not miss and could not face going alone. Being as her phone call woke me up, I wasn’t 100% awake and didn’t quite realize the commitment that I had just made. It takes a lot of time and effort to get ready for a business party. Dressing up and stepping out isn’t something that I do that often so I have gotten out of the habit of preparing for an event like this. But I can truly say that it was worth all the hassle and a good time was had by all.

The house that this party was held at was one of the most elegant houses I’ve ever had the pleasure of being in. Too bad that the owners aren’t around most of the time to enjoy all of it’s benefits. I really loved the slate water fountains that they had in located at various strategist positions in the house. There is something about water that just soothes my mind, body and soul. I would give anything to have a master bath such as the one that these folks had in their master bedroom. If I had a jacuzzi in my bathroom, I swear you would never see me, I’d be in there the majority of my time. I can guarantee that!
