Fitness Alliance

I have decided to do what ever it takes to come up with a nice sleek and trim Beach Body for this summer. Last summer we didn’t get a chance to go anywhere for fun in the sun and in any body of water for a variety of reasons, so it is important to me and the kids that next summer we make up for lost time. It is important for all of us to spend good times like that when we can and I really missed that this last summer.

With all of the warm/hot weather holidays coming up that we all know can be devastating on anyone who is watching their weight I have started an Extreme Body Workout and will continue with it all the way through until I find myself laying on a beach somewhere, soaking up the sun and drinking a nice cold drink with one of those cute little umbrellas in it. I found this workout online and they have a wonderful program that I have checked into, they also have a 90 Day Review that I would urge anyone interested in taking control back of their body to check out as well at

N.C. Health Insurance Quotes

Going online to the website, I think, was a very smart move that Darlene made late last month. I’m glad that I was able to point her into the right direction to get the answers to all of her questions about health insurance options, in her new hometown. This whole Affordable Health Care Act is a complicated mess. Hopefully it will actually end up helping so many people who couldn’t afford insurance before.

Even though she is only 7 1/2 hours away, I fear that we will only be able to see each other when she and her son come back up this way for holidays and/or vacations when her son’s school is out. I’ve known Darlene for most of my life. We went to Junior and High School at the same time and even dated a pair of twin brother’s in the 11th grade! I’m going to miss her and Jason, her little man. I wish them the best of luck down in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina.


How many adults have a box of crayons in their homes?

I do – I have a small box of 8 of the fat crayons for preschoolers and a big box of the regular crayons in 64 different colors. We break them out of the crafts box when kids come over for a visit. I can teach young ones how to draw several different flowers with stems and leaves, a duck and a rabbit. My grandmother taught me how to draw a pansy – they were her favorite flowers- when I was just a little kid.

We keep an assortment of coloring books on hand, but to me the biggest challenge about coloring is facing a blank sheet of paper and thinking up something to draw. I hope some day in the future a grown kid will think of me and the flowers and animals I taught him or her how to draw.

Today’s Beauty Salons

Today’s beauty salon equipment for sale is a whole other world then when I was growing up. I remember my mother taking me to her beauty salon in June each year to have my hair done in order for me to participate in the year end dance recitals that I was involved with for eight years of my childhood. It was a big deal to go get my hair done. I would come in looking like pretty average looking skinny/puny kid and walk in looking like a movie star.

The beauty salon basically did your hair back then, not like today’s salons that offer so much more, like getting your nails done, fingers and toes. There is tanning and skin care, Microdermabrasion and numerous types of massages and other things that we rely on to make ourselves, what we think makes us more beautiful.

Carlton Professional Beauty Supplies has a great selection of products that would make any beauty salon proud to own. I haven’t been in a beauty salon in a couple of decades. I wonder if the lady that always did my hair each June is still doing hair. I’ll have to ask my mother next time I talk to her. She should know, or at least I hope she would.

Terrific Digidesign Online

Since I seem to come from such a musical family (I was left out of that whole loop) I seem to be spending a good amount of time this holiday season online looking at various musical equipment, instruments and all the wonderful accessories that are available these days.  Not only have I been looking at all these goodies but I’ve place several orders and am anxious for them all to arrive safe, and sound..

One of the better sites that I’ve spent a good amount of time and money at has some pretty terrific digidesign equipment that I know my kid brother would just love to get his hands on. I’ve all ready purchased a birthday gift for him, several months back actually, so I have sent him the link to the site on Facebook.

Funny how we really don’t talk face to face much these past couple of years, it’s come down to using texts, Instant Messaging, email or Face Book. The only time I really see him is the few times a year that the family tries to gather for Thanksgiving and Christmas. He just isn’t the type of person that is comfortable around family, he’s pretty much a loner, but we still love him and won’t stop trying to reel him in any time soon.
