Missing Friends Search

In today's fast paced interactive website world filled with sites like Facebook, Twitter and more it is a fantastic way to find old friends and loved ones. We have become such a mobile society, I can count on 1 hand the amount of people from my Granduating Class that still live in my home town. So it's so easy to loose contact over a few years. There is a fantastic new service at the site that allows you to re-connect with people. I recently wanted to find a old friend Matt, I haven't seen in a while so by just doing a quick search My Life does all the searching for me, it checkes the profiles of all the most popular socializing sites to find matches for me. I really wanted to know what he has been up to and where life has taken him over the years. Although there was a number of results returned I was able to find a profile that matched and allowed me to find out where he was living, what his career now is along with his personal information and family. I was able to link up to his facebook and join his friend list. It was very excting and know I will be using this to search for all the other old friends I have lost touch with. It's so much easier to use as it searches quickly through all the sites. I can't recommend this site enough to people just star

Dance Fun

Another Dance Season has begun and as always there is so much to get ready for. New Shoes, 3 pairs for each of the kids, the registration fees and of course the costumes. One I know for sure that we need to find this year is a "Thing 2" from The Cat in the Hat. I have been searching online to try and find one and had some success on a few different sites and on EBay, so we'll see how my bid goes, wish me luck.

A man and his toys

Christmas is coming fast so what do you get for someone that has everything. My father has accumulated so much stuff over the years it's hard to get him something that he doesn't already have so for me it's easier to buy him accessories to go with something he already has. He loves his Yamaha motorcycle and is always tinkering and adding new accessories to in during the Winter to get ready for Spring. Now that I live away it's hard to get gifts to my family so shopping online and having them shipped direct to family is so much easier. It's great to buy online too because you can save up to 60% off your custom yamaha parts. Now I will just have to find a way to figure out what accessories to get him without him knowing.

Christmas Countdown

It's official,,, in only 3 months it will be Christmas Day, that scares the crap out of me. We live so budgeted we have to plan our Christmas purchases months ahead of time to make the math work out for us. This Christmas will be a bit different for us because we are planning on staying home for the Christmas Season and only be heading home to visit for New Years Eve. We are trying to finish up a few big projects in the house before we start to worry about decorating. Wish us luck on the journey.

Christmas Time is Coming Fast

It's the most wonderful time of the year, yes Christmas is just around the corner and it's time to start planning what to get each of my kids. My oldest son is the easiest as he only has one focus when it comes to hobbies. He is into anything "Army" or "Combat" and loves getting out doing war games with his buddies. He is looking some new paint ball gear and is really looking for an airsoft rifle but he still has some convincing to do on that one. I'm sure he will be shopping online for me and creating the big list of things he wants to have.

When a mouse beats Spiderman

I was very surprised when the news broke yesterday about the Disney buying up the Marvel Company. It will be interesting to see how the deal shakes down with so many commitments already out there for Marvel it will take a while before we see the Disney spin on our favorite Marvel Characters. I think Disney Executives will certainly respect the history of Marvel and take the Characters in a new and exciting direction. In the end I hope to see an even better product with more fun and adventure than ever. I heard the shares dropped on the news so it might be a good time to Buy one Share of Disney as it has a proven track record of surviving and in the long run with the addition of thousands of new characters to draw from should become an even more powerful enterprise. Good Luck Mickey, I can't wait to see you swinging through New York with Spidey.
