Harvest Time

We are about ready to start harvesting from the garden. OK, ALRIGHT so it is just two tomato plants in plastic pots sitting on my outdoor small size picnic table. But it is the best that we have done in years. We were given like 5 tomato plants and we planted them in two plastic flower pots and they started growing and growing and then they started blooming and blooming and then what to my wondering eyes did appear but actual tomatoes. They are a very small pear shaped tomato and I think one pot is yellow ones and the other pot is supposed to be red ones. But Randy is going to get his overalls, and work boots on and get a basket and go pic tomato's this afternoon for his supper enjoyment. OK so I admit it he is going to use a very small basket but hey it is something we have done and he will enjoy them I can tell you that.

I am a purest

OK anybody who knows me know that when it comes to food I am a total purest. I mean I am a meat and potatoes kind of girl. I don't do veggies of any sort so when I heard about the Great American Food Cook off I mentioned it to my husband and I could see that twinkle in his eye. This is a man who loves to cook and experiment with recipes. So I challenged him to come up with a good seafood recipe that he thought was a winner. I know when we lived in Florida they had major problems with the availability of Grouper so there were times when you could not obtain fresh Grouper at the market so I am a big fan of the positiveness of domestic seafood sustainability. I am here to tell you there is nothing better than a good fried Grouper sandwich. But I digress.... So as I type here, the husband is busy with his pen and paper comping up with his winning recipe. If anyone out there has a good recipe for seafood leave it for me in a comment and I guarantee you my husband will check it out and probably make it for himself. Here is the recipe from the Husband.

Cold Sweet Salmon Salad
2 pounds of Fresh salmon
4 Hard Boiled Eggs
1 pound of elbow macaroni
1 pound frozen Peas
1 cup Mayonnaise
1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/8 cup Honey
1 medium Sweet Onion diced

Broil Salmon and let cool. Flake Large pieces of salmo into a mixing bowl. Add the cooked elbow macaroni when it is cooled. Add sliced hard boiled eggs, 0nions and the frozen peas (after thawing do not cook peas).

Mix together the mayo, vinegar, and honey together (sweeten to taste by adding more honey if needed) salt and pepper to taste.

Take the Mayo dressing and mix with the salmon salad. Serve ice cold with crackers on the side.

Farm raised Salmon is ok to use but Fresh wild Salmon is much better!

It's a bird It's a plane no it's a monster

OK I pulled this stupid picture from the internet. This is one of the few things we have heard about on the TV for the last two day. They have had all sorts of experts try to look at the picture and determine what the stupid thing is. People have said it is a turtle out of it shell, it is a dog, it is a raccoon they have guessed a lot of things. I guess it is stupid and who really cares. Oh and by the way the supposed monster has now disappeared. No one knows where it went or who has it. Come on now give me a break. What is with all the animal junk lately on the news first the poor elephant who hurts herself and now the unexplainable monster.

There is an elephant in the room

OK, now I have heard it all. This morning on Fox news they were telling about an Elephant whose name I believe was Gina although I don't really care. But the gist of the story was that this elephant is being sent to Mexico to a zoo there to live for some reason. Well some organization is fighting this move because this elephant has serious problems. She is a self mutilating elephant..... Now how does an elephant self mutilate itself? Does it step on it's own foot. Or does it do a Tim Conway stunt and "Snorf" that would be putting it's own trunk into its own mouth and blowing. I am not sure what that would do to an elephant but other than that I can't think how a elephant would go about hurting itself. To me there are so many more important issues going on in the world and so many people that are going to die today for many reasons such as, starvation, lack of water, disease just to mention a few. Come on world lets get back to life and take care of each other. And furthermore Gina behave yourself!

I am not a wimp

You Are Not a Wimp

In fact, you are an incredibly tough person.
Your nerves do not get the better of you.

You don't back down from challenges or intimidating situations.

You love the thrill of conquer... so much so that it outweighs the fear of defeat.

Boy this is really right I am not a wimp. As a matter of fact I am a second generation Bitch (when I need to be) I also raised two daughters who when needed can be just as bitchy as I am and my daughter Joy is raising her daughter (my granddaughter) to be a mini bitch. She will be the 4th generation of proud bitches.

Network me

Since we moved to PA I have been trying to set up my own wireless network. I tried calling the manufacturer of my router but they said I needed to purchase a new one before they would help me. What I need is a connection manager to help me set up my wireless connection and my internet connection. I believe that with Avanquest I just might have found what I have been looking for. All I have to do is to Download the free program and I believe I have found the help that I have been needing.

Avanquest Software, a leading developer and publisher of business and consumer software for the global PC market, has released its new and powerful Avanquest Connection Manager tool, worth $29.95, for FREE. This title will save laptop users time and effort as it simplifies the process of detecting, selecting and connecting to different networks, printers and other peripherals whenever they change their location.

Today, mobile computer users often access public and private networks from many places they visit, from coffee shops and offices to airports and hotels. This usually requires different types of internet connections with a variety of different settings to be able to work properly, requiring the system to be reconfigured every time you move from one network to another. Avanquest Connection Manager allows laptop users to save time and avoid frustration by automatically:

* Detecting and storing preferred settings for each location.
* Selecting and identifying the settings if they return to a previously visited location.
* Connecting to preferred settings and peripherals for that particular location

Avanquest Connection Manager enables laptop users to automatically disconnect and reconnect to different networks and peripherals every time they change location, making it much more than just a wireless connection manager. Preferred network connection settings for the internet, Virtual Private Networks (VPN), email clients, default printers and disk drives are all remembered for future use, allowing users to visit locations and not have to re-enter any configuration information.

Speedos are a no no

Got a call from Joy and she and the kids were at Cypress Gardens as I said in a previous post. Well they also have a water park there. I guess there were some men of shall we say advanced age wearing said speedo. My granddaughter proceeded to tell me that it was "disgusting" cause their tentacles were hanging out. Leave it to a 10 year old to explain things to you.

Always Remember

Several years ago my Father in Law was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. We found this out at the same time that we learned my Mother in Law was having a series of strokes. This to say the least was a very hard time on my husband. Being the oldest child he took the responsibility of taking care of his parents. My husbands parents have both since passed on. Fortunately my Father in Law never progressed to the point that he didn't know any of his family. Although he did have some pretty bad days during the course of his disease. I have since learned about the Alzheimer's Memory Walk which I really believe is a wonderful thing.

This Memory Walk is the largest event in the nation to raise the awareness and also funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. They need volunteers of all ages to help in the fight against this terrible disease. There are going to be walks in more than 600 communities. A typical Memory Walk would be a 2 - 3 mile walk and would be held on a weekend morning this coming fall. All you have to do is teak up with the Alzheimer's Association and you can walk with a purpose. We need to move closer to a world without this terrible disease of Alzheimer's. Together, we can move a nation and do away with the dread of Alzheimer's.

Belles Waterfall

Today Joy took the kids to Cypress Gardens in Florida for the day. The kids got tickets from their Dad and if they used them before the end of this month then they were good until the end of the year. The gardens have really had a rough time in the past few years. They shut down for quite a while then the park was purchased by a company and they closed down. Now the park is owned by yet another company and they are really trying to make a go of if. They have a water park and the gardens which in years past were so beautiful and peaceful to walk through. They have added 3 roller coasters but today Joy said that the 2 biggest of them were shut down. Now that is a bummer when you take kids there and the best of the rides are shut down for the day. But hopefully they all had a good day and I should be hearing from them just about anytime now.

It is time

Everybody in our family knows that when something goes wrong with a computer that I have anything to do with I tend to run around like chicken little proclaiming that the sky is falling. I really could use some good training. There are such growing career opportunities int he IT field and that career could vastly change your life for the good. I could really benefit from some Cisco certification in my life. I am in the process of looking for new employment and although my knowledge of computers in not on the rocket scientist level I am also not a computer dummy. It is something I just might give some thought to although on the other hand I am sort of what they call an "Old Dog" so maybe I could convince one of my daughters to get the training and then when I have problems I could just go to them to solve my problems. I might try to talk Joy into this since she has been talking to me lately about trying to start a new career. Then when Mom calls with a problem I have an in house as it were computer geek to do my work for me. I could wait for my grandchildren to grow up cause Nate really seems to understand the workings of a computer but since they are turning 9 next week I think that just might be a little long to wait for assistance. So that brings me back to Joy and I really think it would be a good deal for her she would not have to depend on her X husband when she has computer problems she could just do it for herself.

Burning Bed

Well we got a bed...... If you can call it a bed. I call it the bed from..... well you can guess where it is from. Our friends got us the mattress and the guy told them it was a "queen"size mattress. We found the box springs and the girl told us it was a "queen" size. Well guess what they were both WRONG! They are both only full size and the mattress is about 8 inches shorter than the box springs. So last night we had it on our frame and the frame is about 12 inches longer than the box spring. So our legs were hanging off the end big time. Randy wound up sleeping in his recliner from 2:00 AM on and I finally got up about 6:30 AM with a back that felt like King Kong had been jumping up and down on my back all night. So tonight we are going to try something different. We put the mattress and box springs on the floor. It is a little low but hopefully it might be just a little more comfortable for us. If this doesn't work then....... Well checkout the picture and you will be able to figure it out for yourself.

Hang on Snoopy

Just thought I would show you a picture of our new dog. His name is Snoopy. We did not name him the people who gave him to us named him and since he is 5 years old I did not want to change his name on him. But to be honest sometimes I don't think it would really matter what I called him. Sometimes when I call him he just stands there and looks at me like "you talkin to me" So I just ignore him and go on about my business. He is a pretty loving dog though when he wants to come into the living room and lay beside me on the couch. So guess it is not all bad.

Lazy Boy

Today we got a lazy boy recliner for Randy. Since he has so much trouble with his knees it really helps him to be able to put his legs up. So I have been trying to find him a good recliner for the very good price of free. It doesn't look exactly like the one in the picture but I think it is an older model and I couldn't find one exactly like it. But, all that aside let me tell you that he is a happy camper. I can bet you that later this evening I will find him sleeping in his new recliner. This is a man who can sleep standing up I really believe but he can sleep much better in a recliner and he will do that tonight.

Driving a Log Truck

I would love to give the person who invented power steering a big kiss on the cheek. Have you ever tried to drive a vehicle with no power steering. Well, I have and let me tell you it is no picnic, have you heard of something driving like a log wagon? Well that is a car with broken power steering. We had a car that the power steering went out I don't know what the problem was it could have been the power steering rack or the steering box my husband told me but all I cared was it was broke and I wanted it fixed. I wish at that time we had known about we could have gone to their site and simply put in our car make and year and poof there is just what you need for your car. Just remember that unless you are working on your upper body strength power steering is very important on your car.

How to land that Job

Well, I have another stupid job interview this afternoon. I absolutely hate job interviews. The last big one I went on I came out saying WOW I aced that I really think I am going to get the job. Well two days after she was supposed to call me she finally called and said she needed the names then of some personal references. So I gave them to her and waited for another day. I called her and she said she had not been able to reach any of them. I asked about my good friend in Florida and she said she didn't want to call Florida. So I got on the phone and call all of the references and they agreed to call her. So they all called her and gave her my reference she requested. Well I called her back when she didn't call me again and she said yes she had talked to my references and they had said all of the things that she would have expected them to say. She said they said I was outgoing, friendly, punctual etc etc etc. She said she could tell all of those things from the interview. Well what did the bimbo want? Did she want me to give her names of my enemies? I am sure I could come up with at least 3 people who would tell her I was a bum. Well to make a long story short I don't work there. So I am still looking for gainful employment.

Healthy Choices

Back when I was in school (which was not quite the dark ages but pretty close to it) healthy eating was not really given much consideration. We had pizza, soft drinks, cake and pie and all kinds of things that did not promote good nutrition. But, thankfully things are changing in the schools. YoNaturals - Healthy Student Vending is becoming more and more popular. Unhealthy snacks are being replaced with snacks that are natural and now even organic. Kids are not really even noticing the difference because the snacks are so delicious. My granddaughter and grandsons are going to be going to a brand new school this year so I hope that they willb e give a more healthy diet. They really tend to be hooked on junk foods so some natural and organic foods would be great for them.

No where to lay my head

Do to circumstances beyond my control we find ourselves in a situation that we have never been in during our entire marriage. (which has been a long time) We as this week will have no bed to sleep in. I won't go into all of the details but we are now searching high and low for a bed to sleep in. I am very upset about this situation as you can imagine but just need to make the best of the situation and try to find a solution for the situation we find ourselves in at this time. So everyone out there think good thoughts for us that we can find a new bed to sleep on before the weekend.

Ready Aim Fire

I tell you I am just about ready to take my frustrations out on somebody, anybody. I think I will take up paintball. It isn't anything that I have any actual experience with but I figure if you get all the right equipment such as BT Paintball that has to make it a lot easier. I want to get some paintball gear like maybe something from the Tippmann or Empire brand taht you can find on they have the greatest equipment on their site. They have many guns to choose from and some of their top sellera are the Tippmann 98 Custom, Smart Parts Ion and Spyder Pilot ACS. I love the sounds of those. I can just imagine taking aim on one of my friends and taking all my frustrations out and then we all walk away friends. Maybe we have a few paint spots on us but other than that we are no worse for the wear. Ultimate Paintball offers the best prices and they have free shipping. Things are always much better when you get free shipping don't you think so?

Bales of Hay

We went out yesterday into the country and everywhere you go they are bailing hay and straw. I just love to see it all staked up and the different ways that they actually bale it. Some of the bails are round like these and some of them are sort of rectangular in shape. As a kid my grandfather used to have a farm and his hay bales were always in the rectangular shape. But I guess different strokes for different folks. It is just something that brings back memories and sometimes those memories are good ones. Getting up the hay as a child was something I never had to do thank heavens. My middle sister took care of that for me when she fell from the top of the hay wagon in the field and broke her collar bone, shoulder and her arm in 3 places. After that my Dad told my grandfather that we were girls and that he needed to hire men to do that job. So for that I tell my sister a heartfelt Thanks!

I am melting

We just got back from going to our storage warehouse cause I wanted more of my stuff here in our house. Boy it is so hot out there and right now our A/C in our car is not working. The place where we got the car from have really been working hard on trying to repair it but I am about ready to just try to take care of it ourselves. I am very thankful that we have a Buick and that I don't need to purchase a Mercedes AC Compressor for the car. I would imagine that it would be more expensive. But with summer hitting us in the face you really have a need for the A/C to work in your car unless you want to arrive someplace sitting in a puddle of sweat and trust me I do not ever want to arrive anyplace that way. Discount AC has a very complete line of AC compressors for all models of cars and all of them come with a full warranty and free shipping. You have to love the free shipping. I really hope that our car does not need a new air conditioning compressor but you just never know. If you are having the same problem as us you need to visit Discount AC for your auto ac needs.

My kingdom for a crown

The other evening I was talking to my granddaughter on the phone and when I got ready to hand up. She said "can I talk to Poppy"? I said sure and passed the phone over to Randy. Well I could tell from his end of the conversation that she was having problems with her twin brothers not treating her nice. We have told the boys that they need to treat their sister and mother like queens. Well she was t" were not doing that. So he said what is the problem and she proceeded to tell him all of the bad way that they were treating her especially and then an occasional oh yeah and they aren't being nice to Mom either. So he told her that before he hung up he would indeed have yet another talk with "the brothers" but before hanging up with her he had a question for her. She said ok what? He asked her if she was treating "the brothers" like kings. She paused for a second or two and said you mean both of them? Randy said yeah both of them and she repeated I got to treat both of them like kinds. But, they only have one of me to treat like a queen. He said yeah that was the bummer to having twin brothers and only having one of you. But she needed to realize that while she was treating each brother like a king each brother should be treating her like a queen so that was two queens for her and only one king per brother. I think she began to understand the odds and decided that being a double queen was better than bring a single king. So she got off the phone and said she would try it out to see if it works. We haven't had any reports lately but if they fail in their honoring of the queen I am sure we will be notified ASAP.

Caught it on Fox

Anyone who knows my husband Randy and the family definitely does will know that he is a Fox news fanatic this man would watch Fox News from the minute he gets up until the minute he goes to bed. Actually I am hearing Fox News as I type this post. He is desperately needing new glasses he is one of those people who still can't see when he puts on the glasses that he has so the other day while watching Fox he saw Zenni on Fox. Now this has to be the absolutely best opportunity to get new glasses that I have ever heard of. You simply go to and check out their site. Here you can get prescription glasses for as little as $8.00. They have a huge selection of frames. No more going to the eye Doctor and having 10 frames to choose from. They are even able to give you the progressive lenses which is what I have and absolutely love. Their secret which is no longer a secret since I am telling everybody in the world, is that they sell only their own manufactured frames direct to the customer, with no middlemen and virtually no advertising budget.

The Road Trip of your Life

The Road Trip of Your Life

You see life as precious and special. Heritage and family are very important to you.

Your life is quite hectic. You try to slow down when you can, but it's not easy!

You are all about risk and randomness in your life. You travel off the beaten path... in fact, you're often the one carving the way!

Eh, work is not really for you. You're all about playtime! You'll work if you have to, but you really don't like it.

In another life, you could have been a great artist. You trust your creative instincts enough to let them lead you.

The Road Trip Test
I do see family as very special and I guess that is what is so hard for me right now. We as some of you know have just recently moved from Florida to Pennsylvania leaving our daughter Joy and our 3 grandchildren in Florida and then Jill moved shortly after to Holland. So for the first time in probably most of our family existence we are all living very much apart. It is really taking some adjusting and getting used to and to be honest I am not every sure I will get used to it completely. I miss my family dearly.

The smell of rain

I am so excited I just got a Renuzit TriScents air freshener and I absolutely love, love, love it. We just recently got a dog and I don't want to ever have a house that smells like dog. So I put my new TriScents in my kitchen which is basically in the center of my house and is also pretty near where the dog sleeps a lot of the time. The Triscents that I got is called the Morning Meadow collection. Which includes Waterfall Mist, After The Rain and Pure Breeze. What these TriScents do is that every 45 minutes it changes the scent automatically. This is just what I have needed for a while something that I don't have to worry about spraying myself it is an automatic system. Also, this is a very long lasting system it will last for 60 days. If you are not into the Morning Meadow collection they also have a collection called Seaside Breezes which included the following scents Relaxing Waves, Beach Breezes and Ocean Oasis scents. I will probably switch back and forth and next time take myself away to the beach. You have to go to the web site which is and print yourself a coupon and try it for yourself. You will love it just like me.

Tired Tired Tired

My grandmother used to have a saying and I guess it is not to bad for me to put on my blog. When she was tired she used to say "I am so turd tired that I could fart faint". Well, that is the way I feel this evening. I worked today on a merchandising crew helping to reset merchandise in a grocery store and I guess I am not used to it cause I am exhausted to say the least. I am doing it again tomorrow so it is now 4:13 PM in the afternoon. So I am thinking that if I am in bed by oh say 4:30 PM maybe I will be rested up for tomorrow. Who knows?

Time to get away

I am ready for a vacation and would love to find a great place to go and we are not too far from North Carolina and our friends here in Pennsylvania have a couple of time shares. So I have been giving some thought to what we could do to guarantee that every year we could have our own special get a way. I think that the way to go is a fractional ownership . But then when I think about it a little more I say why just stay with in the United States. We could travel anywhere in the world so I think the idea of investing in a fractional ownership solution for purchasing overseas properties just might be the best idea I have had yet.

Oceânico Group Steps Up to Success in Homes Overseas Awards
Oceânico’s Stepping Stones Fractional Ownership Purchasing Solution Wins Gold

18 December 2007 – Oceânico Group, the leading developer of quality beach, leisure and golf resorts in Portugal, has won a Gold award in the Best Fractional Ownership Scheme category at the 2007 Homes Overseas Awards for its Stepping Stones solution.

The Gold award recognises the best fractional ownership purchasing solution worldwide, with this year’s award seeing over 100 companies shortlisted, representing more than 20 overseas property destinations. Stepping Stones won a Gold award for the choice of quality developments at which it is available, together with its ease of use, clarity and investment potential.

Oceânico launched Stepping Stones as a quarter share ownership solution in 2006, with 12th share ownership launched in 2007 providing prices from just €25,000. Stepping Stones is available at the four-star Vila Baia resort in Praia da Luz and the five-star Amendoeira Golf Resort near Silves, which features two championship golf courses designed by Nick Faldo and Christy O’Connor Jnr.

Simon Burgess, director of Oceânico Group, said: “Everyone at Oceânico is extremely proud to win the Homes Overseas Award for Stepping Stones. We are committed to providing all of our customers with a high quality property investment, and have spent a lot of time ensuring that Stepping Stones offers the best possible solution to fractional ownership.”

Brigitte Urbano, Fractional Sales Manager at Oceânico added: “With luxury properties, a stable Portuguese property market and a range of mortgage options now available, Stepping Stones offers a strong investment opportunity for anyone looking to get a foot on the overseas property ladder, or for those who want to spread their investments. This award highlights the quality that now exists in fractional ownership, and we are very pleased to be recognised internationally for our service.”

To support purchasers Oceânico offers mortgages for UK homeowners on the Stepping Stones quarter share scheme, with either a 60% mortgage secured on the membership certificate or a 95% mortgage secured on a UK property. Subject to terms and conditions.

The Homes Overseas Awards were established in 2004 to recognise and award quality in the overseas property market. Since its launch the awards have been expanded to cover a broad range of countries and products that are now attracting interest from British consumers. The 2007 awards were held at the Royal Garden Hotel in London on 3 December.

I have been replaced

I got a telephone call yesterday from my granddaughter. She said "Nannie can I tell you something" I said of course Baby Girl you can tell me something. She then proceeded to tell me that they are getting a Nanny. They are going to have a lady come and stay with them while their Mother is at work so hence the Nanny. Well I started carrying on saying on no you have replaced me I move to Pennsylvania and now you are getting a new Nanny. She kept trying to say Nannie stop Nannie wait Nannie just a second. Well, I finally took a breath and she said it is not a "Nannie" it is a "Nanny" and she spelled each one out for me. I just love getting her going like I did cause she really falls into it when I do something like that to her.

O say Jill can you see

I just talked to Jill in Holland online and she is really needing to get herself some new glasses. She bought a pair of those over the counter ones before she left but that is like well I just don't know what it is like to tell you the truth. But now she needs some real glasses. So I suggested that she check out They have great frames on their site and the prices are very reasonable. They sell very stylish glasses online from as little as $8.00, and they have a huge selection of frames to choose from. The reason they have such low prices is that they sell only their own manufactured frames direct to the customer, with no middlemen and virtually no advertising budget. So I told her to check it out you just never know.
These are the ones she likes I think.

I should play what?

You Should Play the Saxophone

You are charismatic, friendly, and very uninhibited.

You have a lot of personal expression to bring your music.

Improvisational and informal, you can't deal with an instrument that has too many rules or complexities.

You are much more interested in creating unique solos than immersing yourself in music theory.

You have a lot of style, and you definitely are one smooth operator.

And while you may not play perfectly, no one's going to accuse you of being boring.

Your dominant personality characteristic: being very outgoing

Your secondary personality characteristic: your flair for the unique and dramatic

What Musical Instrument Should You

I really don't see me playing a sax. Although in school that used to be what I wanted to play but due to the fact that my older sister had played the clarinet that is what I had to play. I have a very frugal father and why spend money with it wasn't necessary.

Jill's walk in the woods

This is a video that Jill took with her new Flip video camera on a walk in Holland with Alia. I used mine the other night at the fireworks. But, there was this stupid tree between me and the fireworks. Other than that it worked fine.

Blind as a bat

I need to go to the eye doctor and get my eyes checked but I really dread that whole process. Usually when you get ready to pick out your glasses that is where you have the big problem. I can't believe the prices that they want for a pair of frames. But I have found a terrific place online where I can get frames for a fraction and I do mean a fraction of the cost. You need to check out to get your frames. That is what I am going to be doing I can tell you that. They have lots of beautiful frames on their site. Their secret is that they sell only their own manufactured fames direct to the customer so with no middleman and virtually no advertising budget that is how they can do it.

Fourth of July Fireworks

Tomorrow is the 4th of July and it is a big time for celebration. I think we might be with our friends to see some fireworks. But to tell you the truth I would just rather sit home and spend a quiet evening at home to tell you the truth. Don't get me wrong I do enjoy fireworks but to deal with the crows and the heat and I guess the fact that I am getting older I just really don't enjoy all of the hassle. Call me a fuddy duddy but I don't care that is what I am. You know the saying I am what I am and that is what I am. But I do say to you Happy 4th of July.

Love that Gear

Do you have a police man in your life? If you do then you need to get him some tactical pants to wear. They have these pants for hot weather and they have them for if you are working in the rain. They really seem to be pretty reasonably priced and right now they also have free shipping which in this day and age is a major plus to me. Anything that I don't have to leave home and spend gas driving all over God's creation I would much rather stay at home these days with the price of gas and do my shopping online. Plus when they add the free shipping well, you just can't really pass it up.
