If you’re anything like my wife I’m sure that the littlest thing can mess up what you perceive your outfit should be. She is a little bit obsessive in my opinion, but she even wants her eyeglasses to be festive! Unfortunately for her we never had the money to get Holiday themed eyeglasses for her, much less for both of us! Well this year she approached me a few days before Christmas with a package that she said I was required to open there… I was a little shocked when a designer quality pair of holiday themed eyeglasses were within. I began to say “Honey we don’t have the money for these” when she butt in to let me know that they were very cheap eyeglasses, well not in quality, but the price left nothing to be wanting. You see she picked up our Holiday themed eyeglasses from Zenni Optical online. Zenni doesn’t carry any designer frames, in fact they don’t carry any off brand frames either. They only carry their own line of eyeglass frames, designer quality at direct from the manufacturer prices! I have a feeling that I’m getting a new pair of Holiday glasses for every Holiday this year!
I think TV’s in the back seats of cars will be the end of our society… And I’m only half joking when I say that. My generation grew up with walkmans and gameboys that parents would throw in the back seat to shut their kids up while driving. This has created a nation addicted to texting while driving, and all of them believe it’s perfectly acceptable, because they grew up with it (I was fortunate enough to be too poor for any of those things). Now we’ve got kids watching movies while they drive, and playing their PSP’s at the same time… How are kids going to learn to drive if they NEVER see their parents drive? I’m serious, A) good driving habits start early and B) ask any great race driver (Tanner Foust says it all the time, though his “greatness” might be in question, he’s also a rally car driver which is arguably the toughest form of racing because of the variance in locations and weather conditions) they will say that their passion for driving started as a toddler in the back seat of their moms mini-van (or whatever you drive).
This comes from the fact that Connor has been asking lately to watch Veggie Tales every time we get in the car to take mommy to work… Rose and I were seriously considering getting him a DVD player so he could watch ‘em to keep entertained… when I thought about it I thought back to an interview with Tanner Foust where a mom was asking how early should she get her child into racing and he said that it starts as a toddler in the back seat watching your parents drive. Then I thought about that big grin I see in the rear view mirror when I hit the round abouts by Zona Rosa at 45mph, tires squalling, and the giggle that comes when we straighten the car out.
1and1 has just got a new load of servers online, and they finally broke away from AMD as their only supplier of servers (Bulldozer was such a letdown, and that’s coming from me, a hardcore AMD fanboy who really wants AMD to be competitive with Intel). Anyways, they’ve got their old AMD quad core servers for $80 a month right now… I’m really tempted to upgrade my server… If I knew for sure that Google was getting that gigabit fiber line here by 2013 I wouldn’t bother… I’d just use my quad core server here. With 23 sites all running heavy DB accesses my server is starting to slow down… With a little more RAM I could get some of my busier sites to run their sessions off of the RAM and ease up on the HDD’s. Of course when Google gets here my server here has 8 GB of RAM and a 16 GB flash drive for SWAP space and it’s running 4 hdd’s in RAID 5… so… there is really no comparison once I get set up at my house there won’t be an issue. Still need a GOOD UPS before I move to the house though.
Have you been looking at your bathroom wondering what you could do to spruce things up? You’ve cleaned until your hands were raw, you’ve tried decorations… but nothing seems to bring the place to life. It’s old, and worn out only further aging in looks every day. Well how about a new bathroom vanity to spruce up your bathroom? You don’t have the money for a bathroom vanity you say? Well obviously you have not checked out BathroomVanitiesOnly.com because they have bathroom vanities and fixtures at amazing prices!
Even today in our world where equality and fairness are closely inspected and thought out with every major decision, it can still be much more stressful for working women. Even more women are taking up the mantle and going after high paying careers… However, when a man has a career that is understood to be his job and little more is expected of him. A working lady is often still expected to take care of the kids, and clean the house! Being such it can be difficult to find decent ladies work wear to keep a professional look at work. Or rather it can be difficult to find the time to do some shopping for ladies work wear. Luckily Pinstripe and Pearls has a professional womens work clothes line. Pinstripe and Pearls is an online clothing retailer that can save you time, energy, and the hassle of shopping at a brick and mortar store. Whether you’re looking for ladies work wear for the daily grind, or in need of something nice to look your best for an interview Pinstripe and Pearls has the most fashionable clothing at great prices, without the headache of a storefront.
I just launched mah new site HealthyBudgetCooking.com the idea is (as you may have guessed) to teach people how to live healthier, on a budget! I’ve got my first article up detailing the savings you can have if you cut out to eat dining out of your daily ritual… especially fast food. In the coming weeks I’ve got the plans to put out some recipe’s for Guacomole, Chicken Noodle Soup, and some Chicken Tacos! Feeling pretty good about a lot of things. I think I can keep up with weekly posts on here and still get my stuff for TheBibleAnimated done… which I’m actually doing quite well on, I’m at the point where I need to get some thoughts organized though, and that is what today is dedicated to.
