What do you get for someone who already has everything they could possibly want? Well, I don’t know if anyone truly has everything they could want, but I know quite a few people who really do not want for very much at all. My parents are two examples of this type of person, which makes it very hard to buy them anything when it comes to special holidays like Christmas, their birthdays or anniversary. I wanted to find some great info on different ways I could surprise them for their anniversary this past summer, and I found a terrific idea from an online forum that I visit.
Others were discussing the same issue around Mother’s Day, and someone suggested that people gift their mothers with a limo ride to a really nice restaurant. I thought this was a terrific idea, because luxury is always a nice gift. Read the rest of this entry »
I was ecstatic when my fiance proposed to me a few months ago. Out of all the people that I have dated, he is the one that feels like “home” to me. He treats me with respect and supports me in so many ways that other people haven’t. I originally planned on having a small wedding, but it has suddenly become a much bigger deal. My fiance was visiting http://www.starnightlimousine.ca last night and turned and asked me if I would like to have a limo pick us up. I wasn’t expect that and wasn’t sure if I should say yes or no at first!
We are both on a limited budget because we are saving for a home. A limo is a fabulous thing, but I wasn’t sure if we should do it. Read the rest of this entry »
My wife and I did not have a very fancy wedding. It was very minimalist. Not by our decision though, we just didn’t have any money to do anything more for the wedding. Kind of a shame, and so I want to do something to make it up to my wife. I want to go here on this website and see about renting a limo for the night of our anniversary. I think that would be pretty special, and I need to figure out some other things we can do to celebrate the anniversary. But I do believe that renting a limo is a good start.
Anyway, I need to figure out prices on an hourly basis and how long we would be able to rent it for. I really want to keep it for the whole night, because that seems like it would be most ideal. Read the rest of this entry »
Moving to Texas came with a very real surprise. Texas electricity rates are far better than they are in most of the country, a fact that would have had me moving down south had I been informed sooner! I’ve been doing everything that I can possibly do to save money as of late and moving to Texas is an attempt to do that. I found a new job that would pay far better than what I previously held while at the same time the cost of living here s cheaper than where I had grown up. Needless to say, things have been looking up for me.
Still, I was pleasantly surprised when I came across several different electric companies to choose from! Back in Louisville we only had a single company to supply us with all of our electrical needs. Unfortunately that meant you were beholden to whatever they were charge. Imagine being tight on monehy and suddenly having to start paying more for your electricity but not being able to afford it! You don’t have very many, if any, options in a situation like this in a city with only one provider for utilities. It’s a bummer that makes things incredibly difficult.
Texas is an entirely different ball game. When I began looking for a utility company I was completely expecting to just have a single provider that would service me. And yet I was shocked to discover that there were more than one! I didn’t even look over the entire list when I saw the cheapest that I could get was right here in the town with me. It goes to show what healthy competition can offer a state and now if I find myself once more tight on money I’ll be able to switch services if one of them is cheaper.
I have to say that it is real hot down here, and I am not just saying that. In fact that is not something you could mistake about. I got down to El Paso this morning and I had the air conditioning wide open on the pick up truck all morning. I guess that it was unseasonably warm, but I am not sure. I hate to think what summer is going to be like. If you click here you can see how I spent my morning. I was sort of mixed up about things down here and I thought I had got the power company to come turn on the lights at my place, but when I got there they had not done anything. It turned out that I messed up and called up the wrong place.
They have dozens of different power companies down in this state and not all of them serve every part of the state. The one I called would have come and did it if I had been down the road about ten miles or so, but they do not come to where I live. It is not a big deal, except like I told it is really hot. So I was unloading the stuff from the truck and the rented trailer that I brought out here and that place was about as hot as a dog gone sauna. I took my time and after a bit I took a break and rode down the street to this cantina. I shot a bit of nine ball with some old gentleman and tried out the local beers. They all drink Pearl and Lone Star beer around here. I guess they are okay beers and they were really good at that exact moment when I was burning up.
After thinking about it for years, I have finally decided to pamper myself, and my family a bit, and buy a vacation home located in Hawaii. It is not the most practical place that I could have bought a vacation house, but it is definitely where I wanted to have a vacation house. Ever since visiting Hawaii when I was 8, I have been in love with the area. I want to one day live there permanently. I don’t have television yet, and I want to look into direct tv in waipahu.
I have not had a satellite television provider before, but I think it would be interesting to give it a try. Read the rest of this entry »
The US Marines are the first to go in, but it is the US Navy that gets them there. History proves that naval fleets have decided who wins. Everyone speaks of the air power being a dominant factor in the outcome of conflict. However, those planes are brought in on ships. The taxi to the theater of operations for any conflict is going to be a ship or boat. This is why it is necessary to concentrate efforts on building up both the Coast Guard and the Navy.
We need the men and women trained to run the systems and we need the vessels. The problem is that in a time where there is not a major conflict in progress, Congress will not cough up the cash to keep the fleet strong. These huge vessels cannot be built overnight. The time it takes to ramp up to go to battle can cost many lives. It is better to keep pace with viable possibilities now rather than try to catch up later. Read the rest of this entry »
If I was honest I would say that I do not believe we need any more fleet aircraft carriers and that it would be better to reduce the number of big deck carriers in favor of a more flexible fleet. This especially applies to the Atlantic Fleet, which really does not seem to have any real opposition. In South America there are no real hostile forces that we should be overly concerned about. In truth we could not currently foresee any need for overt military action by large forces, either at sea or on land or even in the Air.
In Africa there are many problems, but not many problems which can be solved by a large carrier fleet. Amphibious assault ships and small deck helicopters are the resources that might be required in any likely events there. Read the rest of this entry »
