When the cable company switched the packages around and my wife’s favorite TV show was no longer in the tier we subscribed to ,she called them. The price for the next tier to get her channel back was a steep one. It aggravated her and she called direct tv for garland instead. Now her channel was still in a higher channel package, but it was a cheaper package than what our cable company offered. Plus, it had more channels we were actually interested in watching. That is why we switched.
When I found out we could record more than two shows at once, I was thrilled. Continue reading Dealer for Direct TV Garland Got Me to Switch Easily
I really wanted to do something special for my parents. They were getting ready to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary, plus my dad was going to retire within a few weeks. To have two milestones like that happen so closely together meant a celebration was in order. I decided to rent a private room at a local restaurant, and I invited 30 of their closest friends along with 20 relatives. I wanted to learn more about limos and how much they cost, because I thought it would be perfect to have them arrive there in style like that.
I had never rented a limo for any occasion. My husband and I were too poor when we got married, and my son and daughter both had destination weddings, so there was no need for one. I wasn’t sure that it would be in my budget, so I just went to the website to find out whether I could afford one or not. The first thing that surprised me were how many different limos there were.

The hair extensions I usually get come from India, but on my most recent trip to the hair salon, I used my natural hair extensions that I purchased online from a special store. The reason that I bought this hair instead of the usual hair that I buy is because one of my friends recommended it to me. They had bought the hair for themselves to wear at a wedding of one of their relatives and the hair was a big hit among the wedding guests. Even the bride and groom commented on how nice her hair looked.
The testimonial of my friend and the people at her wedding was good enough for me to give the hair a try. Continue reading New Hair is a Man Magnet
I am sort of living a bit of a bachelor’s paradise at the moment. I am living for free in this huge beach house, it belongs to the family of a guy I went to college with and he is letting me stay here for the moment. In fact this is the sort of place that you would rent out with a whole family, including the aunts and uncles and a half dozen cousins. It is not like usual Texas energy options are not available, but the place sits all alone on a piece of headland just South of the Corpus Cristi bay and the guy who built it put in a small wind turbine and some solar electric panels. Those seem to be like insurance against power outages from big storms. The place is built like a fortress as well, although this is because the guy who designed it was thinking about hurricanes.
Obviously you are in the Tropical part of Texas and it is not like you can put a house up here and not think about that sort of thing. Continue reading Just Got Down to Corpus Cristi

All around the world, billions of people still suffer in poverty, despite all of the amazing technological advances of the 21st century. In many countries, people still do not have reliable access to such necessities as food, shelter, fresh water or health care. It is in places such as these that private charities form an important part of the social welfare system, often providing services that the government cannot or will not provide. For example, in the Dominican Republic, many people are still struggling to provide themselves with the basics of survival. The Dominican Republic is not a particularly wealthy country, and its government is not able to meet the needs of its citizens. Therefore, a Catholic organization has stepped in to help out.
This organization does a great deal to help provide the people of the Dominican Republic with vital assistance, such as distributing food, ensuring a supply of clean drinking water and providing basic health care. In many cases, a relatively small investment of effort can yield great results. Many children in the Dominican Republic are able to look forward to a brighter future because of the assistance of this organization. Instead of being doomed to a life of poverty, they can hope to improve their lot in the future.
Education is another vital service that this organization can provide. Giving a child a good education is one of the most rewarding efforts a charity can make. Once young people have the skills and the confidence they need to succeed, their chances of escaping the trap of poverty improve dramatically. This not only gives them a brighter future individually, but helps the whole nation become more prosperous. By investing in the youngest people in the Dominican Republic, the nation can begin to lift itself out of the cycle of poverty.
