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.

In this ever-growing world of technology, people are going to need to learn more than your basic math skills. The business world is getting more complicated, and the employers are expecting their employees to come to them with a good solid education. It’s getting so that it is hard to get even a basic job with only a high school diploma. Largely, I think, because the public schools are not doing their jobs in preparing the children for employment nor to further their education, it’s more like bring them in and get them out as soon as possible for new ones to fill their spots.
Having said that, I think that many schools are trying. My friends have been telling me that their kids have been coming home from school in fourth grade asking them for algebra help on their math homework. Many of my friends have forgotten how to do it, or never learned it in the first place! So there seems to be a growing need for algebra tutoring services. Not every parent is able to help their kids with these kinds of problems! So I think that it’s great that people can access an online algebra tutor and get both algebra 1 and algebra 2 help for free.

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.

Today is my step-mother Mary’s birthday. I tried to call her at home, but just got her voice mail, so I sang “Happy Birthday” into her answering machine, tried her cell phone and sang the song again, man I hate singing that song. Then I turned to the Internet and sent her an email birthday card from my favorite free animated birthday card web site, and I posted on her Facebook wall. That’s all I can do from here, since she moved to Florida, it’s not like I can drive over to her house with a present anymore. So, Mary, here’s one more shot at letting you know that I’m thinking about you and want you to have a really Happy Birthday today!
Happy Birthday Candles

The family is making plans to celebrate my father’s 65th birthday come May. It promises to be a shindig and I look forward to being there, seeing all the family that are invited and that darn well better show up along with numerous family friends that we have gotten to know and love throughout the years.
People will be coming from all over the country, even a few that are overseas are expected to make an appearance, it should be a fabulous time for all that attend. The only problem that I see is finding the perfect gift to give to my Dad on his special day. The only thing that I can come up with is finding something boat/fishing related.
Dad has always loved boats, fishing is his passion, but he has all the fishing equipment that he could ever need or want to keep him happy with all that. My sister has suggested that we kids all go in together and get him some of the new HID Go lights for his favorite fishing boat. He has been really talking it up about these Go lights all year and she has found a good deal on them online. If I can’t come up with any other idea’s in the next month or so I guess I’ll go ahead to commit to them, I know he will enjoy them and all, it’s just that I really wanted to do something on my own this year for some wacky reason.
