The weather is starting to warm and that brings to mind that it is nearly vacation time. Every year we like to get away in order to have some family time. This year will be no different and we already have a place in mind. I was online looking for a place to go when I ran across a site about Myrtle Beach. It highlighted the opportunities we would have when we visited Myrtle Beach.
There is something about the beaches that attracts every member of the family. The children love building sandcastles and jumping in the water when it gets too hot. Mom loves the fact that she can lie on the beach and read a book while getting a tan. I like the fact that I can get good deals at the golf courses I play on. There are a lot of Myrtle Beach specials to take advantage of.
The best part about the whole situation is that there are many Myrtle Beach vacation deals to choose from. They have packages that fit nearly everyone’s budgets. I am sure that our family will be glad to take advantage of them. We are looking forward to this summer and anticipate we will all have a great time. It would be nice to see you’ll there too.

Every now and then my wife and I like to talk about what we would do if we came into a log of money. We talk about whether we would even tell our extended family that we had won. I don’t know if any of them would be aware of the good fortune if we did not tell them about it, so we haven’t decided on a yes or no answer. We agreed that it would probably depend on the amount of money, and on the circumstances of receiving the money.
For example, a winning scratch ticket, if the amount was really large, might result in a news story in the media, and that might be difficult to keep quiet! But then again, I don’t think anyone in the family pays any attention to that kind of news, so maybe they’d never know if we told them! We talked about whether we would change our telephone number to a non-published number, and we agreed that would probably be a smart thing to do. Then we would probably set up a few trust funds for our kids, to make sure that they would be taken care of the rest of their lives.
Then we’d probably purchase an annuity where we would be able to get payments immediately every month to survive on. We’d definitely either pay off our house or sell it and move to one we like better. That would depend on where our kids were living at the time, as we’d like to stay close to them if possible! We’d make sure that all of of credit cards and bills were paid off, then we’d fly down to the islands and try to find a Island Properties Bahamas ocean view cottage to spend our winter months in the years to come.

Finally found some time to look online to research, as I promised at Easter dinner last night, and find the best cheap postcard printing options for my kid sister’s boyfriend. He is starting his own landscaping company and wants to try various marketing attempts in order to get the word out and get some business drummed up as soon as possible. There is a lot of money out there in this type of business, but a lot of competition to try and get over, around and/or above and I will help him (for my kid sisters sake) in any way that I can.
They have managed to stay together (without a lot of unnecessary drama) for over two years, so this just might be the one. He is a good enough guy to get along with when I see him on occassion. A step up from previous relationships, in the whole families opinion. With that said I guess I better sign off and get my butt in gear and send him the links that I have come up with and see what he says about that before proceeding. The weather is getting nicer with each day that arrives and there a tons of landscapers taking advantage of it.

One thing that is really neat about working in a large office is that I have a lot of friends. There always seems to be something going on and new things to hear about. My friend Bob was telling me about how he and his family had spent their summer vacation at an Oceanfront Myrtle Beach Hotel. He said they had a great time and told me more about it.
Bob has traveled to many places in his life. When it comes to finding the best places to go, I trust his judgment. When he said that Oceanfront Myrtle Beach Hotels were the place to be, I believed him. Bob liked the fact that the service was great and that the view of the ocean was so nice.
Bob also told me about the great time that the kids had. They went to play on the shores of the ocean and enjoyed the sunny weather. Bob was able to get in a round of golf at one of the local courses and his wife caught up on her shopping. Bob had a serious look on his face when he told me that a great vacation could be found at a Myrtle Beach Hotel. I believe everything he said was true and I am now thinking about taking my family on a trip to Myrtle Beach.
When we went to my Cousin Sarah’s wedding last summer, Aunt Sue told me that she and Uncle George are going to retire at the end of the year, put their family home up for sale, buy a RV and tour the country until they were too old to travel. I have to admit that I was quite surprised when she told me that, and to be perfectly honest, I thought she was joking. But sure enough, when we got their Christmas letter in the mail during the Holidays they had written on the card that their house was under contract and they were going to be checking out the different used motorhomes at their local RV dealers to see what kinds of bargains there are to be found on the sales lots.
They have not yet decided if they want to buy the kind that is a “fifth wheel” or the kind that contains the driving mechanism as part of the RV itself. There are a lot of pros and cons to both types, and to be honest I’m not sure that I’d be able to make a decision as to which type to buy if I was really going to be touring the countryside. Gas consumption is a huge issue in this day and age. I think that the price of gasoline would completely scare me away from even thinking about touring the country by motorhome, but if they have the money saved up, then I say go for it!
