It's Never Too Cold To BBQ

That's right, it's time to barbeque, actually it always time to BBQ and why not. Just because it's heading for the middle of winter doesn't mean you can't, or shouldn't, barbeque. It's all the more reason TO barbeque! What lifts the spirits on a dark, cold, bleak, and snowy day better than some bbq'd ribs and maybe a nice grilled steak! Mmmmmmm, that's what I'm talking about! Of course I don't have those issues living in Central Florida and all, but I used to. It wouldn't be unusual for the neighbors to see me out at the grill in a snowstorm with my tongs and welding gloves(perfect for handling the hot coals and hot grates) on cooking a steak or some chicken or whatever. After a fashion they used to drop hints about how good it must taste when the weather was lousy and food choices were limited to indoor cooking - for them! A true BBQ person is not dissuaded by weather, unless it's lightning, but rather heartened by the smell of the smoke! Only in the winter in harsh weather is gas acceptable over charcoal(what true grillers use) because at least you have the internal strength to do what's right, to grill no matter what!

Guest post written by Derick Burks

Something that I really got into watching on DIRECTV was the Bachelorette. This season was all about a girl named Ally. Ally had been on a previous show called the Bachelor. She was one of the finalists but ended up getting kicked off when the guy on the bachelor picked someone else to propose to. I know this is such a crazy concept to think that someone might find the person of their dreams on a television show that has candidates to be your mate picked out by probably a team of people working for the show. Anyway, Ally was picked to be the next bachelorette after everyone felt so sorry for her when she was not chosen to be the one the bachelor loved. I forget how many candidates Ally started out with, but I think it was around twenty-five. So each week she would get to eliminate one or two candidates that she did not like to narrow down her choices to hopefully one person that she would want to marry. She finally picked this guy named Roberto. And, Ally and Roberto got engaged. Now someone just told me that Ally and Roberto just broke their engagement. I think that The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are both rigged and are just a way for some people to make money. I sincerely doubt that anyone could find the person that they should marry on a television show.

Enjoying Wicked the musical on Broaday, Finally!

Guest post written by Miriam Somerset

For years, I've been thinking about taking my granddaughter to New York so she can go and see Wicked on Broadway. Plus, she's never been before. We're very close because she's my own grandchild and I like to think that she loves to spend time with me. So I thought that I would take her to New York for a fun weekend with just the two of us.

When I was online looking up information on ticketing, I ran across some information on Miracle Ear hearing aids. After I looked through it some I decided to go and get fitted with some. I thought that they would help me experience New York even better!

I also preordered tickets for us to go and see Wicked because it was my understanding that it's impossible to buy tickets right before the show like you can for a whole lot of these Broadway shows. It was certainly worth buying them before because it was simply so good! I was so impressed by not only the sets, but also all of the songs, too. Plus, I think that my granddaughter was in heaven, finally seeing her play on Broadway!

Home Office

Guest written by our friend Mason Abbott

I love having my own home office but sometimes it makes it even harder to incentivize myself to actually go in to work. Working from home is so much easier and I can do it in my pajamas which makes it extra nice! I sure wish my job was at home all the time but I do have to go in for meetings and stuff every now and then…My kids love having me here when they get home and it definitely makes things like running errands and getting groceries ever than it ever used to be. I thought that as I got older I’d like to be in an office socializing more but it’s actually just the opposite. I like making improvements on the house and taking care of things like going to www.TEXASELECTRICITYPROVIDERS.com to look up electricity rates and stuff like that. I know I’m lucky being able to work from home at all but I can’t help wanting more from this awesome arrangement I’ve sorted out with my office!

A Trip South!

Guest post written by Guy Evans

After having checking out http://hearingaids.miracle-ear.com/hearing-locations/north-carolina/c/cary/ a number of days ago, my wife and I packed our bags and made our way to southern Florida. We don't have the stamina to drive and drive like when we were kids, so we made it a three day trip and enjoyed a lot of the areas along the way. We stopped in Georgia and northern Florida before making our way to our destination. We took a lot of pictures and spent a little money to stay in some nice hotels. We made an event out of the journey, and I always find that's the best way to do things.

Southern Florida was fantastic for us. It was great to go somewhere a little warmer this winter and just enjoy ourselves. We gave ourselves an extended trip and saw Orlando, Miami, and even made our way all the way down to the Keys for a few days. We really pampered ourselves and we didn't have any regrets. The ride home was tough, but we started thinking about all the things we do for adventures in the future. Next time we plan to head out west.

Deathly Hallows Part 2 Official Trailer

Saw it opening day, wished I hadn't! You better know the book by heart because they're going to throw a lot of the final story in the trash and rewrite it in a choppy, hard to understand format. Just when you're waiting for a known critical scene to happen to finish the scene they jump to another unexplained scene. Wait till it's out on video and let someone else rent it to watch. Too, too bad. They should have made the film longer to keep the continuity of the story understandable.

I give this one **1/2 out of *****.
