What would you do if you were living alone and afraid of the dark? I know what I did. I had wireless burglar alarms installed and I’m glad I did. Now I am no longer afraid to go to sleep at night. I can even leave my home without fear that someone might come in and violate my possessions.
A couple of years ago I got a dog thinking that would make me feel better. Well it did and Sam is a great dog, but sometimes he sleeps really soundly and there have even been times when he slept right through the mailman coming to the door. I guess I shouldn’t blame him for needing to get some rest because it might have been my fault he was so tired since I take him out for a run and he gets all droopy when we get back home and his bed is way back in the other room and I do close the door so he can sleep. My fault, I guess.
Anyway I do feel better now and I don’t have to put so much pressure on my Sam. Well I really don’t guess Sam would do much good anyway if he did happen to catch an intruder. After all he is just a little schnauzer and even though he sounds ferocious he is a pussy cat.

Before the World Cup started I made sure to look at cable tv offers and find out the best way to watch as many games as possible. Christiano Ronaldo is one of the starts to watch during the world cup. The fleet footed Portuguese winger is a one of a kind talent. He played beautifully and eloquently at the 2006 world cup where Portugal finished fourth place.
What can Ronaldo do this year, in South Africa? God knows what kind of moves, tricks or goals he can score. This is why I am so pumped up to for this year's world cup which has already kicked off. The flamboyant winger has scored twenty-six goals with his first season at Real Madrid in Spain and assisted on many goals as well. He is a threat for opposing teams who must shut him out of the game if they have any hopes of getting at least a draw against Portugal.
Ronaldo is up there with the likes of Lionel Messi, fellow Real Madrid Teammate Kaka, and Wayne Rooney. These are some of the best and most famous soccer players in the world. They bring a spark to teams, and are a joy to watch. Ronaldo's flashy dribbling moves, tricks, cuts amaze the crowd both at the Stadium and watching as faraway as Australia. I'll be watching Cristiano Ronaldo and the rest of his teammates live on Satellite TV. I'll be rooting and sometimes be rooting agianst Ronaldo as this years much anticipated world cup matches is being played. Let's go!
The Shield was a show based on an experimental division in the Los Angeles Police Department nicknamed “the Farm”. Using a converted church as their station, the “Strike Team” )featured group of rogue detectives) brought their particular brand of justice to the streets of the fictionalized Farmington district.
Michael Chiklis played the part of Strike Team leader Vic Mackey. He, along with Walton Gogginsb (Shane Vendrell), Kenneth Johnson (Curtis Lemansky), and David Rees Snell )Ronnie Gardocki) made up the infamous anti-gang unit. Though the show had an involved ensemble cast, the main focus was on the 4-man team’s variety of illegal and unethical methods used to maintain peace on the streets and their numerous ways of making profits through illegal drug protection schemes and outright robberies.
By season 5, the Strike Team was under a lot of heat by IAD. Lem was forced into wearing a wire in hopes of incriminating his team members but he finds a way of letting Vic know and a clever plan was devised to full IAD. In the last episode, Shane, never truly trusting Lem to not fold under the pressure, kills him with a stolen hand grenade.
It was 1 of the most well-constructed scenes I’ve ever watched and so well-performed that I actually shed a few hot tears. I was so thankful of my satellite tv providers in Atlanta that night.

Something didn’t feel right about our new home…”old” home, actually. This place has to be over a century old. Don’t get me wrong—it’s a lovely Victorian house. But something felt off. I finally figured it out. It wasn’t safe.
Wow…was it ever not safe. The staircase railing was loose…a major accident waiting to happen. The bedroom door was one hinge away from falling. The wheelchair ramp installed over the back porch steps had a crack in the center support that promised future collapse.
You probably wonder why we bought such a dangerous home. Any proper inspector would’ve pointed out these issues. Well, we didn’t buy—we inherited. Who turns down a free Victorian house? But we had a lot of work to do to make it safe. And I don’t just mean installing a home security alarm system, although that was on the list once I saw the condition of the back door lock.
Thank goodness for cell phones and phone books because a handyman my hubby is not. The first call was to a locksmith. While he was on his way, my husband found a carpenter to fix the stair rail and I gave him a call. Next we found out where to get adt Security around Boston and installed an alarm system. This makes us feel much safer. My teenage son dismantled the wheelchair ramp, revealing a great set of concrete steps while I replaced the hinge on the bedroom door. Done and done!

Technology offers us so much nowadays, if you are not up-to-date on the latest technology, then you're really not up to date on what is happening in today's world. Technology has brought us computers and I even signed up for Wireless Internet service, because this is a basic necessity when you are working with the computer. My computer does everything. I am able to design my own Christmas cards at Christmas time because I have extensive art program loaded onto the computer and whenever I fill the need to send the cards I just sign onto the program. I am also able to play a game of spades against the computer. That is my addiction because I love to try and beat the computer’s high score. My computer is so high-tech that I am able to burn CDs onto a disc because I have a burner on the computer. I can even watch the latest DVD movies because there is a DVD player that is installed. I cannot understand how anyone could live anywhere and not have a computer located within their home. I am so dependent on my computer and every day it seems like I find more and more cool features that I'm able to use on it. I even typed this post by just talking to the computer; my computer was able to turn speech into text. I would highly recommend anyone who does not have a computer of their very own in their home to purchase one. I also signed up for Satellite TV, and I think I could stay entertained without ever leaving my home!

It’s spring time and a young man’s fancy turns to…GOLF. The grass is turning green, the spring flowers are blooming, and the afternoon sun is telling me it’s time to get out the clubs and play a few rounds. When I can’t play a round of golf, the next best thing is watching golf. Luckily, I can do this whenever I want now because I went on www.BestChoiceTV.com and got the golf channel. This year watching golf on TV will be especially enjoyable because:
1) The golf channel has golf 24 hours a day. With coverage of tournaments, how to segments, and new product information, I will be in golf heaven.
2) My new high definition TV will make it much easier to see the ball and watch how the pros execute every swing. .
3) With Tiger Woods’ dominance of the game no longer a certainty, every match will have much more interest and excitement, making every tournament much more enjoyable to watch.
Yup, its springtime in the Rockies and it’s time to play golf. Nuts!!! It’s springtime in the Rockies and it’s snowing like crazy. Time to get comfortable in front of the TV and watch the pros play golf. Oh well, maybe I can play tomorrow.
