Happy Thanksfgiving Day!

My favorite holiday of the year has come around once again and I'm thankful for so many things.

The first would be my family. Mom and Dad are supportive of every decision we make and are always there for us if we need them. I love them both very much and am incredibly thankful for the both of them. My brothers (and even Charity) are a blessing to me every day. I thank God for the close and loving relationships we've had together over the years.

Secondly, my job. I'm blessed at doing something I enjoy and I know there's many folks out there who can't say the same. I love my boss and the work I do. I'm completely happy at Chase.\

Finally, I'm thankful for every single friend I've made. They give me joy when I speak to them, fond memories and good times to come.

Folks, have a wonderful Thanksgiving and God bless you all!

A beautiful thing

Look what I snagged me on Amazon! After months of waiting I finally got to order a case of their newer shipment.

These babies sell out fat on Amazon so I was lucky to grab a case at regular price when I did!

If THIS isn't something to be thankful for, I don't know what is!

Good bye Saturday Morning Cartoons

Did you know the major networks stopped playing cartoons on Saturday?! When did this happen?! Such a sad day!

Back when I was a kid that was what Saturday mornings were all about! (that in a boat load of sugary cereal) I have so many great memories of waking up with my brothers at 6am just to watch the Rocky and Bullwinkle show, then on to every exciting cartoon after that!

We'd even switch back and forth to the channel playing the best cartoons. I remember when the fall line up came out and you'd be torn between watching "The Karate Kid" or "Chipmunks"

Those were the days....

But now with channels dedicated to children's programming 24/7 I guess this was inevitable. Either way, I'm sad it's gone now.

Selfishness

One of the things I hate most about people is when they're so selfish that they don't care about anyone else but themselves. This month is about giving thanks and all they can think about is what's in it for them.

It's a sad way to live your life and I never understood why they act the way they do.

I grew up in a family that was thankful for everything they got. We were poor growing up and I never realized it until years later I was poking fun at my mom at how she doesn't cook nasty things like liver and pigs feet anymore only to find out, she did that because they didn't have enough money to feed us more.

Dang. I never knew before that day. Mom and Dad never sat around the house complaining about how bad life was or the things they wanted to make their lives easier. They were happy. Happy for everything God had given them and I feel the same way too.

You hear people complain about money, their job, their house or some trifle thing they don't have but if they thought about all of the millions of blessings they did have, they wouldn't complain so much. That's why I always try and remind them of the "haves" over the "have nots"

It's just a better way to live your life!

The truth about DSL

So I've had DSL for a month now and I can safely say there's no difference between it and cable.

They say cable's faster, but I can't tell the difference. It seems just as fast if not better! Cable slows down when everyone around you is using it. So far I've had no bad experience with DSL like that.

Cable goes out more frequently. True I've only had it for a month but when the tornado came through Monroe last month everyone was without Cable for a week. DSL? It was working the moment I got power restored.

The ONLY bad thing I can say about DSL is that it's not for people uploading videos to YouTube. The upload speeds for DSL are EMBARRASSING compared to Cable. What took me 10 minutes take 10 HOURS to upload now.

I don't mind. I turn it on at night before I go to bed and the next morning it's almost done. Sometimes I go over to my parents and just upload them there since it only takes a few minutes each time. But that's not enough to convince me to go back to Comcast. No way.

When U-Verse gets here it'll be faster than cable on all counts and I can't wait to see Comcast go out of business here when it does!

If you hate cable but were afraid of DSL, go ahead and make the switch for a much lower monthly bill. Trust me, you won't regret it!

Fun Facts about November

Just thought I'd give you a few fun facts to share with friends, family and co-workers this week:

- The first College Football game was on Nov 6th 1869 between Rutgers and Princeton.
- Canada celebrates Thanksgiving Day in October.
- Before Thanksgiving Day was declared a National Holiday the only 2 that existed were Independence Day and Washington's Birthday!
- 91% of American eat Turkey on Thanksgiving Day

Ok that last stat was lame, but the rest I found interesting. Hope you did too!
