I really need a vacation to somewhere tropical. Between the weather, work and family issues, I am so past due for some serious R & R. I would love to go to the Virgin islands and just bask on the beach in the sun. This would actually be the perfect time to go as it is not hurricane season and the weather is mild this time of year. I know that my wife would love to enjoy some good weather and get herself a tan. I have been there once before when I was younger and in college. It was a spring break kind of thing, but without the wildness. My friends and I weren’t the wild party type.
We are all just a bunch of computer geeks, but that didn’t mean we had no fun at all. We drank like everyone else, but it wasn’t the out of control stuff you hear about on the news and such. There were certainly no “Girls gone wild” on our spring break, much to our disappointment. I have always wanted to take my wife there though, and I think it is about time. I am going to check out reservations and such to see just what the damage will be.

I learn something new everyday. Today I learned that there are home remedies for fleas, ticks and mosquitoes that will keep them off of your dogs. Go figure. Of course if I mention this to my wife, she will tell me that she already knew it and I will laugh because she probably did. However, I like that I learned it on my own. Did you know that if you put garlic in a dogs food every day, it will keep fleas away from the dog? Black walnut hulls given in pill form from the nutrition store will keep all three away from your pet as well.
I think that is so cool. We have a ceder filled bed for our little dog already, and now I know why my wife bought it. Herbal shampoos can also help with killing and keeping fleas off of your pets as well, without having to pay top dollar for expensive pet shampoos. That is really amazing. You never know what you are going to learn each day and each day never ceases to surprise me. I think it is time to go look up more herbal remedies and see what else I can find that will not only save us money, but keep chemicals out of our house.

Oh boy it is here again. This is one holiday that can be totally distressing for men. We rarely know what women actually want and the usual flowers and chocolate seems trite and inconsequential.My wife loves me, but I think this year I had better step it up a notch. Her reaction last year while polite and appreciative, was just a little less enthusiastic then it usually is. She always goes all out for me and this year I am going to have to do the same for her. I am wondering if I should get her a piece of jewelry.
I have seen all of the ads for the usual jewelry sales and such, but I want to get her something that she will treasure. There is also this used car that she has had her eye on. We have a car payment for our new vehicle that I drive back and forth to work, but she insisted that a new vehicle for her when she doesn’t work is too much. Maybe I should get her the used one. I think she would be very very happy if I gave her that car for Valentines day. Yes I do believe that I have found the perfect gift.

There has been such crazy weather across the country this year. For many parts of the country they had a mild winter with no freezing or snow, just a lot of rain. There are parts that have had more snow dumped on them then they have had in years and yet others who never get snow but had flurries in spite of their southern clime. I can imagine the weather people are going nuts about now, unsure of what to report next. That doesn’t count the tornadoes that are getting stronger and stronger.
I am not a scientist, but I am starting to believe the reports of Global warming, never mind what the government says. The obvious changes planet wide are becoming a real concern for anyone smart enough to pay attention. Between the polar caps melting and the extreme weather, I don’t see how people can say that Global Warming isn’t happening. I suppose that when it is too late, they will finally admit that something isn’t right. Of course we may be going into an ice age at that point but hey, at least they will finally get it. Kinda makes me want to smack people in the back of the head and ask them if they are just plain stupid.
