Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there! I hope all the mothers out there have a wonderful, relaxing day today!

It is fairly gloomy here today, so I think we are going to stick to the inside of the house today.

Have a good one!

Web Hosting Woes

If you have ever thought about having your own web site for your business or just for your personal entertainment, you need to think about web hosting. Web hosting can be very complicated, and I am certainly not the expert in this area! There are so many aspects to take into consideration when you are looking to choose the right web hosting company.

Some of the aspects to take into consideration are:

Do you get a free domain name? How is the technical support? How much traffic are you allowed? How much space do you receive? What about databases, what kind do you get? And definitely think about what kind of web builder you receive with it, or is it compatible to what you usually use?

I found a wonderful site that can help you with all of these questions on web hosting. It is called Web Hosting Geeks. They review almost any web hosting site you could possibly find.

If you are looking for the best blog hosting sites, they can help you with this. If you are just concerned about the cheapest web hosting, they have this also! Like I said before, there are so many aspects to think about when you want to choose a web hosting company, Web Hosting Geeks can help you sort out all of these issues!

Anyone Like Lobster?

Anyone out there like or love lobster? I do, and always have. I had a very good family friend when I was growing up that used to bring me back a live lobster every year when he went to Maine. I thought this was the greatest gift ever!

Well, my husband is on his way back from Maine right at this moment, and he has a cooler full of lobster for me!!! I am just so excited, I can't keep my self contained! I just had to tell someone about it. I'm sure you guys think I am crazy, but there is nothing like a fresh lobster straight from the Maine coast.

The rock lobster that you get in restaurants just don't compare to fresh Maine lobster. Even if the restaurant has a live "Maine Lobster" in their tank, it still doesn't taste the same...It has been sitting in their tank full of their local water for god knows how long!!!

Enough of my ramblings on lobster, I need to get going and get ready to greet my lobster, I mean my husband!

New Charter Cable Contest

Charter Cable has done it again! They have come up with another awesome contest for everyone to participate in! No purchase is necessary to enter this contest. They are giving away a grand prize of $5000. worth of gift cards, and weekly prizes of $1000. worth of gift cards.

If you are a current customer or a new customer to Charter Cable, anything ordered online on will automatically be entered into the contest also! Charter's Free Gift Card Sweepstakes is running throughout the month of May.

Last month I wrote about Charter’s HDTV a day give away. Charter Cable is becoming quite popular since they have done all of these contests! In the past they have given away Xbox 360 game systems, laptops, and even a 2009 Honda Civic Hybrid.

In this new contest winners can mix and match their gift cards in $500.00 increments to their favorite stores, such as Sears, Home Depot, Bass Pro Shops, and more!

With so much going on at Charter Cable, it may be difficult to keep up with them, unless you FollowCharter on Twitter. I wish I had been following them a little while ago… We just switched our cable service, since we had a problem with the customer service of a certain company! Nothing lost though, since I can still enter their contest without buying anything!

Murphy's New Home

Murphy has definitely found a new home. The couple ended up being the right fit, and they took Murphy home the other night. They have been staying in close contact with us, letting us know how Murphy has done. She seemed sad the first day, and didn't seem to want to do too much, but then once they brought her outside with them, she ran around the house all day.

That sounds like the Murphy I know! I am so glad it is working out for her, she really is a sweet dog, she is just meant to be an only dog!

We let the couple know, if there are any problems with Murphy to let us know and we will take her back. They totally agreed to this.

I will keep you guys posted if anything else arises!
