Mailboxes Galore

My mother has convinced me to start looking for a new mailbox. According to her all residential mailboxes need to have the house number plainly visible so that any emergency personnel can quickly see and read in order to take care any type of emergency that comes up in people’s lives.

Actually I would like to buy a locking mailbox because so many identity thieves are preying on people’s mailboxes. The world has gone crazy with all of the identity theft issues going on these days. The things that we have to do in order to protect ourselves from one another, it’s just insane.

Anyway I’ve found a great website that has this huge selection of all types of mailboxes that I’m sure to find something that will fit the bill. I never new there was such a variety of mailboxes, it might take me a while to weed through them all but I’ve got patience and time on my side, at least until my mom starts in on me!

Dissapointing Halloween Turnout

The amount of trick-or-treaters that we get here has been dwindling in numbers each and every year, which is really depressing. I rather enjoy dressing up, decorating the house up and answering the door bell to hand out candy to all the neighborhood kids. This year we didn’t get a single trick-or-treater. We are being told that it was because of all of the extreme weather due to Hurricane Sandy. Guess we will find out for sure next year.

Dog Parks

When I lived in California we had two dog parks close to my house. One was a small fenced aread with a lot of things to climb and crawl through. The other park was a large field where the dogs could actually run and chase frisbees or tennis balls. We used to go to the dog park 3 – 4 times a week.

Ever since we moved away I have not been able to find any kind of dog park anywhere around here. There is no place where I can safely take my dogs off the leash and let them run. I really miss that.

Hate To Say Good-Bye To Summer

Today is the last day of the kids in this area’s summer vacation. I think we have everything that is on the Back To School Supply List and tonight we will be having an early dinner and hopefully the house will be nice and quiet so that we can all get to bed early to get a good night’s sleep before the big day that starts way too early for my taste.

 

 

 

Indoor Skydiving – How Cool Is That

Oh how I love YouTube.com. Check out this really cool  footage from the world indoor skydiving championship 2008 that was held somewhere over  in England. This is something that really looks like it could be some good clean fun, maybe something that I’d even attempt to do maybe with a little prompting.  Funny how if I did it indoors like what these good folks are going it would be O.K. but to jump out of a perfectly good airplane, no way! LOL!

I am getting a bit frustrated with YouTube.com lately, they keep changing the format and I am constantly trying to figure out how to find my way around it. My Playlist keeps shrinking all the time because so many of my videos have been removed for one reason or another and they don’t even tell you what video it was, you just get a total blank screen, man that gets on my last nerve. I’d just like the chance to replace it with another version, if possible.
