Home security

A couple of weeks ago my wife happened to be working near the shop that her mother owns, and they were getting off of work at the same time. It only made sense that they get together for dinner before heading home. They don’t get the chance to see each other very often as we live about 2 1/2 hours away from them. So it was good that they got the chance to get together and enjoy a nice meal together that neither one of them had to cook!

So during dinner her mother was telling her that right now she is the only one living in her neighborhood! She lives in a secluded area that tends to be used for seasonal vacation homes, and right now most of the homeowners have been having some kind of problem or another and no one has been around for months!

Naturally, that gave my wife cause for concern. She has heard of many break-ins of people’s homes that live in secluded areas when no one is around. Her mother is not the kind of person who want to own any pets at all, so having a “guard dog” is out of the question for her. My wife told her mother that she felt very strongly that she needs to install a Home Security system as soon as possible. With a home security system, the noise of the alarm going off might scare off the burglars that might break into her home. At the bare minimum, the system would alert the police, and alert her at work, or on her cell phone that there is something going on in the house so that she is prepared to deal with it before going home and perhaps walking in on a burglary in progress. That could be very harmful to her; walking in on a burglary in progress would NOT be a good thing! The alarm systems are affordable alarm systems, and reliable.

Are you looking for a web host?

If you are looking for a web host to put your web page on, it can be a daunting chore. There are so many different web hosting services out there on the Information Superhighway! It can get very confusing, and it is easy to feel overwhelmed. That’s why it is really a great service that the webhostinggeeks website performs for the consumer who is in the market for a web host service.

I’m especially enthusiastic about the web page that they have where they review green web host services. I like to throw my business to other businesses that are interested in (and making honest attempts to) participating in keeping the environment as clean as they can. 

When I first became involved in creating my first website, I didn’t know that there were web hosting services “out there” that provided free domain names as part of their service! I’m sure I spent more money than I needed to! Thanks to the webhostinggeeks website I have learned that I can get them as part of an economical package! So check them out for yourself if you are thinking about creating your own web page!

Television choices – do they include Internet?

Yesterday my wife was talking with a group of friends over breakfast at a local restaurant. One of her friends was having trouble with her computer and asking for advice on how to fix it. She was talking about how she was having trouble connecting to the Internet after she had downloaded the newest version of MSN. I think the general consensus was that it was a coincidence, that her motherboard had probably died on her. During the conversation she learned that her friend only had dial-up Internet access because she had Satellite TV which did not provide her with fast Internet connection.

My wife asked her if the TV company offered a package that included the fast Internet and her friend said no it did not! I was so surprised to hear that! I am used to hearing companies that provide services like satellite TV also had Internet! I wonder why they don’t offer that!

Bought My Prisoner Costume for Halloween

With Halloween quickly approaching, I was shocked when I realized that I hadn’t yet picked out my Halloween costume for this year. I always try to find a cute costume because I want to look my best at our annual office party. Afterwards, I always take the kids trick-or-treating while I wear my costume. So I called up my neighbor and asked if she wanted to go to the costume store with me and go shopping for a costume. She said that she’d be delighted. I quickly set the home security alarm on my home, and then I walked next door to my neighbor’s house. We went in her car in order to save on gas money.

At the costume store, I was having trouble deciding what I would like to dress up as this year. I decided that I wanted something that would make everyone’s jaw drop open when they saw me. Normally I am always a good person who follows all the laws, so I decided that it would be hilarious if I dressed up as a prisoner. I bought a striped shirt and a pair of handcuffs. All the way back home, my neighbor and I couldn’t stop laughing. She kept asking me: “What are you in for?”, and every time she asked I would burst out laughing because I know that I will never go to jail in my life.

Happy 60th Anniversary to the Squier® Classic Vibe ’50s Stratocaster

Joel was talking about buying a new squier this year. It is the 60th Anniversary of the Classic Vibe ’50s Stratocaster, and there is a new anniversary model being sold this year only to commemorate the anniversary. I think that he got excited over the idea of buying one when he was watching this YouTube video that I just copied and pasted at the top of this post. It’s a sweet sounding musical instrument, that’s for sure! Apparently they are only selling this new model this year only, which should make it more valuable as a collectible later on.
