Some times I like shopping and some times it is a real challenge. I have found that there are plenty of good deals on so many products online that it is usually the first place to look for a good amount of items. I found some great custom mattress deals earlier this morning. I have been trying to find the perfect mattress for my bed for a while now and I fear that if I don’t buy one soon that I will need to see my primary care doctor to get a good night’s sleep.
There are many varieties of mattresses on the market that it only makes sense to spend some time online finding out all the information needed to make an educated decision before handing out any of my hard earned money. These memory foam mattresses have had my attention for the last couple of years. I hear that they have new and improved ones out that I think I will go ahead and place my order for, come next payday. I really need a good nights sleep for a change.
I’m seeing more and more commercials for Online Schools on the TV, some nights it seems as if those are the only commercials playing. Man that drives me crazy when you see the same commercial over and over during one show and if you stay on that same channel long one could actually get a bit turned off of the product or service that is being advertised way too much for one’s own good.
I know that people are flocking to attend colleges and universities in an attempt to further their education in hopes of securing a good paying job, although it certainly isn’t guaranteed to, never has and never will I’m afraid. But in these trying and very uncertain economic times it is the best option for most. I’ve been giving thought to going back to school, and am leaning towards online degree programs in nursing since the need for people in the medical profession will always be there, no matter what or so I am told.
My brother just sent me the link to http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ which is the link to a Free application For Federal Student Aid for me to check out to see if I can get some financial assistance since there is no way I could afford anything like this on my own and I’m sure my brother doesn’t want to have to loan me the money and this is his way of telling me so. Ha!
According to one of the blogs that I try and keep up with that is about what is going on down in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the obx short sales are on the increase, which is good news for people that are possibly in the position of purchasing land and/or property in that part of North Carolina that I fell in love with from the first time I set eyes on the place back when I was 8 years old. My Great Aunt Pearl had a beach house down there that we were invited once a year to come down and stay at for a nice long week of fun in the sun and on the beach doing all the things that kids and families do when they have this type of opportunity come around.
I have always loved the water and have always dreamed of one day living on the water. I want to be able to walk out my door (front or back, that doesn’t much matter) and be able to feel the nice warm sand between my toes and walk right out into the water. I still have time to full fill that dream even if it ends up being the retirement home that I end up staying at later on in life. I just hope I still have my senses enough to enjoy it all.
While standing in line to pay for my gas purchase I am seeing more and more companies that are utilizing the id checkers that are becoming a valuable tool for many businesses that determining a customers age is extremely important. The are now stickers being plastered all over that if you even look under the age of 30 that you will need to have a valid ID to purchase beer, wine, liquor and cigarettes along with other tobacco products that are finding their way into the hands of kids that are way under age and have no business using any of these products.
Having an id scanner takes a ton of responsibility off of the cashier which will help all the way around. It’s a win-win situation if you ask me. I’m all for that!
Here I thought the conversation was about researching information about the new cell phones that are out on the market these days, when I walked into the break room yesterday for lunch. I just plopped myself down in an empty chair and barged right on in chattering on about my new cell phone that came with a two year contract with AT&T and how much I wish I had never up graded and kept my old phone. I’ve had this piece of useless technology for nine months now and I’m still clueless on most of what it is supposed to be doing for me. The worse part is that if any part of my face touches any where on that big screen all kinds of wacky things start happening and I’m just done with talking with my phone literally up side down to keep it away from my face.
Little did I know that my fellow co workers were not talking about cell phones but were actually discussing atcc cell line authentication which is something that one of our managers is in the process of researching for some of the health issues that she is dealing with of her husband. Now didn’t I feel like an idiot when everyone just sat there looking at me when I stopped talking about my cell phone, when they had been talking about DNA and other cell related technologies. LOL!
