60 minutes

The other night I was watching the television show 60 minutes, which is one of my favorite news magazine show.  I was especially interested in the story about how a mixture of peanut butter, powdered milk, sugar and vitamins was created and named Plumpynut was created and is being used with great success to feed malnourished children in third world countries.

This was definitely a “feel good” story about how progress is being made to help the needy.  I’m glad I stayed up to watch it.  I hope that the use of Plumpynut spreads to other third world countries to help feed their starving children too.

The Local Diner Sounds Mighty Fine

I have decided that on Sunday evening I will go into town and have dinner at the local diner for a nice change. I have grown weary of cooking for myself each night. Most nights I only have the strength for a quick sandwich and a glass of milk. I’m way over due.

It’s nice to know that they participate with the Farm to Table practice that is getting larger and larger across the whole nation. Being a local farmer, it’s to my best interest to spend my money there.

Farm To Table

Safety, Common Sense is Involved

I have several friends that ride their Harleys and they all come from different kinds of backgrounds and a few have careers that you wouldn’t imagine them to have, while sporting the tattoos and all that black leather that is essential for any rider. Several times a year, I will hear the sound of Harleys coming down our road and then continue on coming up all the way into the driveway. I end up having quite a good old time with some very interesting folks who have come by for a entertaining visit.

We have heard so many stories of fallen brothers that have been killed or severally injured while riding their bikes, and all of my “Biker” friends seem very adamant about safety issues that are mostly just common sense if you ask me. There are many places no that anyone can go to and purchase all types of motorcycle safety clothing and helmets at great discount offerings along with all types of accessories that play an important part of motorcycle riding.

Organizing and Event Management

Advertising has always been and always will be an issue, you need to get the word out about what you have to offer in order for people to know to come to you for your goods or services. We all know how the Internet has made this issue a much easier task to take on in so many ways. And it’s only getting better and better these days.

I’ve found an interesting site at Eventish dot com that I wanted to spread the word around about here. This is a unique site that assists in the marketing of various events. This is where companies, organizations and individuals go to to make their fundraising, workshops, meetings, classes or even birthdays, anniversaries, and reunions known to others and where you can go to get tickets and other pertinent info as well.

With the population ever growing and so much going on around us we can all use something like Eventish to make things like this an easier process. If you are interested and have a moment to check this site out to see all that they have to offer I would urge you to take a bit of time and see if it is something that you can use for yourself for some type of event that you are trying to promote or if you are trying to find out information about an event that is all ready scheduled. I think that you will find it a most useful and handy tool to have bookmarked.

Recycled Bottleneck Guitar Slides

This bottleneck guitar slide is really made from an actual wine bottle. Whenever I discover a product and/or service that is offering something that is recycled or any of the other various ways to help keep our earth as safe as possible, I get a bit excited and try to spend my hard earned money that I earn on this piece of dirt that God has allowed me to utilize to survive.

Looks like I’ll be buying one of these babies here real soon. The farm is going to get real busy here real soon. Spring is my favorite of the four seasons, but it is a lot of work to get everything around here done and ready for the hot summer months.
