St. Patricks Day

    Well it’s getting close to Saint Patricks Day. Time to watch the parades, and put on that green shirt you have buried in the back of your closest, just for this day. An Irish Holiday, that whether if your Irish or not, you probably celebrate it in some way or another.

    Don’t you just love the guy or gal at the office that pinches you every year? You know, because you don’t have on your green. Not sure where the pinching comes from, but it has been placed in our memories to wear green. Probably cause we came home from school, with all the school kids that pinched us for not wearing green. Kids just love a reason to put some hurt on someone, and get away with it. Afterall, it’s ST. Patricks Day! You have to wear green!

     For all of those pinchers out there, this might not be a great holiday this year. Cause good ol St. Pattys Day is gonna be on a Saturday! For all of us that can’t remember to put on our green, we just have to deal with the immediate family at home for the green wearing. Which in some cases, the family members might be tougher than the people at the office. Just go ahead and play it safe. Throw a green shirt with your pajama outfit, and just wake up Saturday and waste the day away on the couch watching TV.


Top Garth Brooks Song of All Time

The day has arrived for me to reveal the top 5 song of all time by Garth Brooks. I have been going through the best Garth Brooks songs of all time over the last few weeks. I have finally reached the top spot on the countdown. You can go back and review what songs I listed as Garth’s best five ever!

Top Garth Brooks Song

Was there ever any doubt that this song wouldn’t be number 1?

I recently saw Garth Brooks here in Atlanta, at the NHL All Star game. He was here watching some good hockey while raising a lot of money for charity. Yes, the Dance is the song everyone will always know Garth Brooks from. In the video for the Dance you can see people that lost their lives early, who probably wouldn’t have changed a thing in their lives, so they wouldn’t have missed the dance they did in life. People like the NASA astronauts that lost their life when the space shuttle Challenger exploded over the Florida skies, Lane Frost the rodeo sensation and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., all were in the video by Garth Brooks song the Dance. You could even see the late John F. Kennedy featured in the video, who was another great American that lost his life way too early.

Garth mentions at the end of the video if anything was to ever happen to him; that he would like this song to be played for him. I’m sure Garth has many more decades on this planet, but when ever that time does come, I’m sure people all over the world will get a good dose of the Dance.

The Dance is a great song and its a song that will live through the ages. There will always be room for a song like this in our lives and this song will still be heard after everybody that heard it originally is long go. Let the Dance live in your hearts and if you have never heard this song before, go back and really listen close to the lyrics. The Dance is the top song on my Garth Broooks countdown and it would be number 1 on anybody else’s countdown too.

Be sure to check out the rest of the songs on my top 5 countdown for Garth Brooks. All songs can be found under “Favorite Singer” here on my blog! See if Garth’s latest song More Than A Memory made the top 5 countdown!

Denver, that is the home for the Denver Broncos, Colorado Avalanche, Colorado Rockies, and Denver Nuggets professional sports teams.

Using Traffic Exchanges

Have you tried using traffic exchanges to promote a product or service? If so, you might have found the results not so great. Depending on what you are trying to promote. It seems using referral links from other traffic exchanges does real well. Your marketing a product to a customer base that is wanting to advertise more. So you may have lots of luck using them to get referrals from other traffic exchanges.

However, lots of us are ultimately looking to promote something else. Now it’s really understanding what traffic exchange is perfect to help you the most. Let’s say you are selling teddy bears. Your really wasting your time with the auto surf sites. Auto surfs are great in getting people to buy a product or service directly from your page. However, the manual surf exchanges are. After all, they have to be there to click to see the next page. So you stand a great chance of having your teddy bears seen by an actual person, while in the auto surf exchanges you don’t.

Auto surf traffic exchanges are very useful for something. They are great in getting traffic to your web page. Which can help you in the search engines. So if your wanting to get your pages high on the major search engines. Auto surfs can help with that. It’s not the final and only answer. It is key to have good keywords on your meta tags, and links on your site that are relevant to what you are trying to promote. So be sure the next time you use a traffic exchange, you understand the difference in manual and auto surf exchanges. It can save you some valuable time, and give you the best chance of succeeding in your online adventures. Good Luck!

Dell Computers

I see a lot of deals comming from Dell Computer. Makes me wonder if something new is about to come on the market, and they are trying to get rid of what they have in stock. You know how you can buy a computer today, and then next week it is already outdated.

The $599 Dimension™ E521 Desktop from Dell, is a pretty good deal. It has the AMD Athlon 64 x 2 dual core in it. Which is great if you mulitask on the computer. The dual processor is a nice touch to have, that will keep your computer fast, as you try to have several windows open at the same time. It also has the 48X cd burner and dvd combo drive with it. 48 times is fast for a cd burner. You can now record them things on to cd in no time at all. Dual channel memory is also included in this computer from Dell Computer Company. So if your in the market for a new computer, you might want to check this one out. A nice computer for under $600.

Money For Nothing Any Chicks For Free

Does that title grab you? It was a line in a song by Dire Straight. I think we know that money doesn’t come to us for nothing and the chicks or ladies do cost us a little, right guys? Well I’m still waiting to get paid my big paycheck in life. I know most people will never make a million dollars in their lifetime and I guess I am looking to fall in that group of people, unless something happens soon!

How nice would it be to win a major lottery? I’m sure we have all thought about it and how we would spend our winnings. I’m learning that most people don’t stick to their dreams that win the lottery. The people that go into great detail about what they would do with winning the money often don’t do all those little things and learn of other things they can do with the money, once they have it in their possession. So don’t get too carried away with what you would do with your lottery winnings, because you’re not aware of some things that exist out there now. Once you become someone with money, then different avenues begin to open up for you and you see other things that you want to go for, instead of the dreams you had before the lottery.

Now I’m sure people that are already loaded with more money then they will ever spend, could help you with these hidden opportunities for poor people. You could take a look at Jr. Lindemann on Wiki or any of the other billionaires that exist out there for helpful advice. Now you might not have a lot of luck contacting these people directly, but you can read their stories. We all have stories and in our stories we are all the main character. See what happens to a story when the main character is a billionaire. It’s really fascinating to see how some of these guys got their money and what they are doing with it today. The lottery won’t award you billions, but you will find that the richest people in the world do things that a millionaire could afford. That might sound funny, but it’s true. If you continue down the scale, then you have millionaires doing what the next level of people under them could afford. It all trickles down to where we are at and if we really wanted to do some of the things the richest people in the world do, we can do it!

Now the richest people in the world might could do some of these things every weekend and we might be limited to only doing it for one weekend, because we would have to save up for a year to do it. The overall point I am trying to make, is that we can do a lot of things that the rich and famous do, if we really wanted to do some of those things. It would take effort, devotion, and the commitment of saving over a long period of time, but the opportunity exist for you or anybody else that is wanting to live like a millionaire or billionaire. It might be only for a short time, but you can still get the taste of it. Or maybe we will all just get lucky and our numbers will come out in the lottery one day!

Orlando, Florida

Orlando is such a beautiful city, located right in the heart of the Sunshine State. You probably think of the theme parks right away, when you think of Orlando, Florida. However, that is just the start. You are located so close to many other great destinations. Cape Caneraval and Daytona are just a short drive away, but with so much to do in Orlando, you might never have to leave.

The 2nd largest convention center in the world is located in Orlando. So you know there are many Orlando hotels. You will be able to find some that are cheap for the wallet, or if your looking for a real nice place to stay, then that can be handled too. You should also see the advantages and disadvantages of staying at a Disney World Hotel. Many of the hotels will offer free shuttles to the parks. Look toward Orlando when you start making your summer vacation plans this year.

Who Is Still Paying For Christmas?

Luckily I didn’t go into debt too bad this year and I don’t think I am paying for anything that I got for Christmas now. I did use money I was wanting to spend on other things and now I am having to wait to get more money, but I have no credit card debts or things like that. I know some people will go into debt so bad on Christmas, they are still paying for it when the next Christmas rolls around.

I think a lot of people fear the economy that we are in right now and took it easy this Christmas. Others just didn’t have the money to spend on Christmas, due to the fact we have to pay so much more for gas at the pumps. I know my buddy Jim Cramer from CNBC says that we are headed for a recession. He’s the smartest man on Wall Street and he’s probably right.

I hope that too many of you didn’t go into a large hole this past Christmas. If you’re in debt right now from Christmas, get out now and earn the money to finish paying it off. The summer of 2008 could be a bad one for our country economically. I think a lot will hinge on the gas prices this summer at the pumps.

The Kids Bedrooms

If you’re looking to fix up the kids bedrooms, then you will be happy to know of a large selection of kids bedding to choose from. I didn’t realize there was so many cool themes to fix up their beds. For the girls you have Surfs Up Lani that is a pretty pink. For the boys you have a nice green look with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I think one of the best looking kids bedding that Lauren’s Linens offers is the Pirates of the Caribbean. What kid wouldn’t want their bed decorated up in the Pirates of the Caribbean? So many other themes to choose from too, and they even have something for the kid that loves sports.

Getting Revenge In Movies

Anytime someone does us wrong or we feel that we have been mistreated, we like to pay them back in our own way. You also have to be careful and make sure you treat everyone right, so someone isn’t looking to get you back for something they think you did. Sometimes we might not even be aware that someone is paying us back and when we learn about it; it comes as a shock. You can call it “paying someone back” or you can refer to it as revenge. Revenge can be sweet if we are the ones revenging, but what if you’re caught on the wrong side?

You might recall a movie that was released in 1962 and done again in 1992 called Cape Fear. Nick Nolte plays Sam Bowden in the 1992 remake and his character is unaware of what’s going on. It seems he convicted an innocent man years ago and now that man has served his time and is looking for revenge. Robert De Niro’s character Max Cady is portrayed as the victim, when he had to serve time for a crime that he apparently didn’t commit. Now that Max Cady is free from jail, he feels like he has lost his life and the only thing left to do, is to get revenge on the man that took away his life. So you get to really see the extreme measures that someone will go through, just to get revenge on someone they think has did them wrong in the past.

Coming to theaters this Christmas is another movie that deals with revenge and it’s called Sweeney Todd. For more information you can visit the official Sweeney Todd movie site. This is another good example of revenge in movies. Sweeney Todd who is played by Johnny Depp is in the same boat as Max Cady was in Cape Fear. He feels that he’s been given a punishment that was too harsh for him as well and he decides to take things in his own hands. This movie really looks like a good one for the upcoming Christmas season and you can learn more about this movie if you visit Todd Sweeney on MySpace. Let’s see if Todd Sweeney is like Max Cady or if he’s worse?

Vick Guilty/NFL and Arthur Blank More Guilty

The breaking news that is out there now, is that Michael Vick of the Atlanta Falcons will plead guilty to dogfighting charges, according to his attorney. So now that Vick’s end of the deal is close to a resolution, just where does the NFL and Arthur Blank stand?

I find it funny how Arthur Blank of the Atlanta Falcons has reacted to the whole situation. Back when Vick was at the Miami airport trying to get marijuana on a airplane via a waterbottle, it was Blank and the Falcon’s Brass that quickly prosecuted him. Then they was left with the task to reel back from their emotions, after the charges was dropped. As far as Arthur Blank was concerned this was something he could sweep under the carpet. Just like he has swept the middle finger incident, where Vick flipped off his own home fans. Also you have the Ron Mexico incident that was overlooked and settled out of court when Vick gave a lady herpes. You look at his brother Marcus and see the problems that existed there, it was clear that Michael Vick was a bad seed.

Now after all those things, he was going to be able to play football in Hotlanta this year. Until the latest charges of dogfighthing surfaced. Blank and crew learned from the waterbottle incident to let the law runs it’s course before making any statements. Until they felt pressure from the media and other protest groups, then they caved in and pointed the finger at Vick too.

This shows you the man that is behind Arthur Blank. When the going gets tough, just quit. That is the attitude and perception that the owner of the Atlanta Falcons has given off. He took the high road and didn’t want superstars like Randy Moss and Terrell Owens when they wanted to come to Atlanta. Now Blank is left alone with his choir boys to compete in one of the toughest sports in the world and with no marketable player on the roster. Don’t expect the Falcons to have any Thanksgiving or Monday Night games next year. No one wants to see this team play football and that includes the fans in Atlanta.

Now the part that is most sickening about all of this ties in with the Virginia Tech Shootings where Vick went to college at. After these things were brought up, the NFL and Arthur Blank allowed Vick to take part in a tribute to the Virginia Tech Shootings at the NFL Draft. This was a mistake and I wondered why either party allowed him to be at the draft. Now that the world is against Vick, they jump on the bandwagon party too.

The lack of Arthur Blank and the NFL to stand behind Vick until things were more clearly out in the open, showed their weakness to public pressure. Blank will never be the owner of a Super Bowl team with his method of taking care of players, showing favortism, and then not willing to support his own players. Vick obviously needs a friend and the people that should have been there for him, was some of the first ones to turn their back and run from him.

I hope these people can live with their self if this takes a turn for the worse and we hear about Michael Vick commiting suicide or something like that. How will Peta, the NFL, and Arthur Blank feel when they hear a story like that? He did something bad and needs punishment. There are no doubts there, but people have to realize when punishment has been served, and Michael Vick has been punished for his crime.

So now you can officially toss the Atlanta Falcons in the same hat as the Bengals, Raiders, and Vikings for having players on their team that caused so much disruption off the field, it hurt their team’s success on the field. Blank might be a whiz at building a home, but he is one of the worse owners ever for building a football team. It’s unthinkable to believe how good this team could have been if they would have brought in the Superstars when they wanted to play in Atlanta and didn’t concern their self so much on locker room disruptions.

Christmas Sweets

What is your favorite Christmas Sweets that you like to snack on for the holidays? I know a lot of people like to send fruit cakes as gifts for Christmas. I guess most people don’t like fruit cakes, because it seems those people always tried to send it to someone else for Christmas. I like the chocolate covered cherries around Christmas time. I think that would have to be my favorite holiday treat. Something as simple as a candy cane or sugar stick can be a tasty little treat too.

I also think you have to include all the yummy pies you can get around Thanksgiving or Christmas, as some of the best sweets to eat during the holidays. Pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and sweet potato pie are just some of the pies that won’t last long around my household. I know pies are loaded with calories and many people try to stay away from them during the Christmas season. Are there anymore great pies for the holidays that you can think of?

Is the egg nog considered a Christmas sweet? Or is this just a Christmas treat with it’s own food group? I’m not a fan of egg nog and I guess it gets talked about a lot, because so many people use alcohol in their recipe. I think brandy and rum are some of the more popular things to add to your egg nog. I don’t have any good recipes to pass along, but I’m sure you can do a search on Google, MSN or Yahoo and find dozens of ways to make egg nog.

White chocolate is something popular around Christmas and you can decorate your goodies in this for a festive look. I prefer the brown or dark chocolates myself, but sometimes white chocolate can be a break from the norm. I guess white chocolate is popular around Christmas, because you can create a snow-scene or something relating to snow with the white color. If you have any great Christmas recipes for sweets, then be sure to leave me a reply with them. I’m always looking to try something new and if it’s not too hard to prepare, I might just give it a try. I would love a good peanut butter balls covered in chocolate recipe. If you have never tried chocolate covered peanut butter bars or balls, then you’re really missing out. Also be sure to let me know of other Christams sweet treats that I might have left off.
