Some Products Still Stand the Test of Time

I can easily remember a lot of the different products that were popular when I was in high schoool. Nike shoes were a big deal back then, and they still are. I had a pair that were navy blue with the white swoosh on the side. I was looking at a site that has a lot of female Nike tenis shoes on it recently, and saw that they have brought back the same exact pair of shoes! They do not look like they are for kids at all. They are feminine and really classy, so I ordered a pair. This got me curious what other companies are still making some things that were popular many decades ago, too.

I was telling my husband about the shoes that I purchased, and he started looking online with me to see if some of his favorite things from the past are still around. Some things we found and some seem to no longer be around. We had a lot of fun looking, though. I started thinking about some of the old toys that I had as a child. For fun, I began looking some of those up on the Internet. Most companies are not making a lot of old toys, but a lot of the things I played with can be found on auction sites.

I still have my old teddy bear from when I was a kid. The tag on my bear is now missing, but I was curious which company made him so many years ago. I found that info easily enough, and then I saw that the photos of the bear online look a little different than mine does now! I had forgotten that my bear originally had a fluffy nose. As a child, I wore his nose off because I used to touch the nose often because the nose was so soft! I forgot about that until I found the pictures on the Internet. It was a lot of fun to look through things that I used to cherish.

Building a Powerful Gaming Computer with a Super High-End Graphics Card

I was taking the plunge to build my own gaming PC. I bought the parts a little at a time. My first purchase was the case and motherboard. Then I got RAM and a high-end graphics card. I got a special motherboard that could take large cooling fans and a powerful CPU. I actually found a lot of info on building it at a foreign language site with an article telling me how to monte seu PC. That means “mount your PC” or build it out. Translating browsers are great! I already had a dual hard drive array to use and a heavy duty power supply. The cooling system set me back a pretty penny, but it was necessary for this screaming gaming machine.

In gaming, it is your graphics card that can make or break you. Mine cost more than some used cars, but the rendering on a giant screen is particularly awesome. We have a small home theater room where my gaming PC is set up. It has some theater seating, and I sit front and center when playing games online. Continue reading

My Mom Wanted to Do Something Very Special for Her Parents

I am really proud of my grandparents because they came here as immigrants from Poland. My grandmother and grandfather had only two suitcases and $200 between them when they arrived here. They passed away within weeks of one another last month, and my mom was fretting about finding the best Jewish monuments in NJ so that she could find to honor them both. They are both buried outside of the temple that they attended for 45 years. One day, my parents and I will also be buried there, too.

When I look around at some of the people that I know today, I see that they don’t have much motivation and really don’t care much about all the advantages that this country has to offer. Continue reading

Going to the Chiropractor with My Sister

For my sister’s birthday, I decided to take her to the chiropractor. We love to give each other nontraditional gifts, and this year was no exception. When she opened the card, and read that I was gifting her a trip to the chiropractor, she got really excited. I don’t think that she’s ever been before, but she doesn’t know what she’s missing. We made an appointment for a Sacramento chiropractor who was located near her home. I thought that if I found a chiropractor that was convenient for her to visit, she might continue going there in the future. This would be a good habit for her to continue in the future. Continue reading

I Like My New Apartment Better

I looked at the website for an apartment complex not far from where my new job is. I thought I would just stay where I was, but the drive every day was getting to be too much of a chore for me. I figured I could either keep doing it and grow even more frustrated, or I could find a place that is closer to where I work. Logic won, so I started looking for a closer apartment. I didn’t need anything bigger than a one bedroom unit, but I did not want a small apartment.

My former one was a studio apartment. While it did work for me, I also knew that I would never get another studio apartment for the rest of my life. I wanted something bigger, much bigger. Continue reading

I Cannot Stop Smiling Now

I was embarrassed over my smile, so I just never did. Even if something was really funny, I would not open my mouth to laugh. If I did, I would immediately cover my mouth with my hand. Yes, it was awkward, but it was better than having people stare at my teeth. I decided last year that I was tired of living that way. I enjoy life way too much, and I was tired of looking like I was grumpy all the time. I did a search for cosmetic dentistry for Aurora on my computer to see which dentist I could see.

I had not been to a dentist in a long time. When I had gone in the past, it was always to one of those commercial ones where you are treated like a number. I knew that I did not want to go there to have any work done. Instead, I went to a dental office not far from where I work. Continue reading

We Started to Hunt for a House

We have been wondering whether or not we need the help from a realtor or a real estate agent. Obviously that is not going to be free, but they claim that they are going to save you money and it is obvious enough that they are going to know many things that I do not know. I have been talking to one of them, his website is here and that is how he wants to present himself I guess. We are not really looking at it as a really immediate thing though, because we are going to need some more money before we are going to be ready to make a move. Continue reading

I Am Getting Ready for Football Season

I am looking at how to get a little bigger and still stay as quick as I will need to be. The coach is telling me about how they are going to need me to step up, because we had a whole lot of guys graduate last year. In fact we had four guys on our defense go on to play football in college. Right now I am looking at this place that does youth speed and agility training in Denver. Of course my mom and dad are not so keen to pay for this sort of thing and so I am looking at how much of it can be done on your own. Continue reading

My Girl Wants to Model

In fact she has been doing some work in this field for longer than I have known her. When she was in her early teens her mother met this photographer who got her some modeling work in catalogs and later on in web pages that sold stuff. Right now she is getting more serious about it and she has started looking for the top dentists in Denver for cosmetic dentistry. If you think about all of the ads you see in magazines, in web pages and on TV, then you realize that all of the models have a perfect smile. It is like a qualification for the job now. In fact it does not really matter if you are a man or a woman. You have to have the perfect smile or you are not going to see anything in the way of work. She is actually looking at work as a fitness model.

There is actually a lot of work in this sort of thing and she claims that I should be trying to get some of it. Continue reading

I Don’t Ever Want to Move Again

I live by myself, but I still like having a large apartment no matter where I am at. I used to move around a lot, but I stayed in my last apartment for nearly two years. I had to move again not long ago, and I think that I am going to be staying in this apartment the longest because of how nice it is. I had seen an advert online that said to click here to find gorgeous apartments. I nearly didn’t because I just don’t have that kind of luck, but it turns out that I do after all.

When I clicked on the link and saw all of the pictures and details of Bloom, I couldn’t believe that I had found something this nice. I have lived in a total of six apartments in the last seven years. I kept moving after the lease was up because there was always something wrong. I knew that it was my fault for not researching more about the places I was going to move into, and I vowed to make sure I didn’t make that error again. Continue reading
