Grilling Deals

Be on the lookout for deep discounts during the end of grilling season. At our house, grilling season never ends and this is an excellent time to stock up on sale items to get you through until next Memorial Day. Some of my previous items that I've bought? BBQ sauce, grill spatulas and scrub brushes, cedar planks, and charcoal. While I prefer propane, I've been known to use charcoal while car camping.

Why am I mentioning Labor Day a full week early? Get out there and check out the regular price of the items that you use during the grilling season, or related items that you've had your eye on. When they go on sale, you'll know exactly how much of a discount you are saving. Our Kroger has been known to drop the price on a case of water by a penny, and calling it a sale item.

It might be a great time to get some good prepping items!

Banking Creativity...

The slow collapse of our economy will bring about new fees and taxes so that the government and companies can maintain their cash flow. For example, my saving account at a local bank decided that all savings account that have been dormant for 6 months or more will be assessed a maintenance fee of $6.00/month. While $6.00 a month is a small amount, the total cost for one year is $72.00 for digitally maintaining an INACTIVE account.

I proceeded to head to the bank, and closed the account. When the teller asked why, I replied that "I can hold my own cash for $72 a year without paying any interest." (She had my permission to quote me.)

Keep a close eye on your finances as companies and the government will gradually try to pass along new schemes to part you from your cash.

It's Coming...Again

After the Virginia shooting, Monica Lewinski's ex-boyfriend's wife stated that, ""There's so much evidence that if guns were not so readily available..." 

The anti-gunners aren't going to give up on taking away your rights to bear arms [2nd Amendment]. I strongly urge my friends and family to purchase standard capacity magazines (30 and 40 round) for ANY gun that they HAVE or MAY want in the future. For your AR-15, I suggest about 10-30 magazines. For your other rifles and pistols, I suggest at least ten.

Keep fighting and pushing back against more gun control. Vote, but also prepare for the day when you won't be able to freely and cheaply purchase a magazine of your choice. I also strongly advocate purchasing firearms through private sales.

Feeding the Beast

I really hate some doctors. Especially those that write MRI orders so that they can get paid for the doctor's visit. For instance, this week I've scanned a cervical spine for a patient whose chief complaint was that her right index finger had been numb for a week. Medicare for those wanting to get enraged.

I also scanned another patient that came in for a brain scan for swelling around her mouth and a day long headache. Smelled like alcohol and Medicare again. Our tax dollars at work, and I'm mentally screaming inside my cranium the whole time I'm doing these unnecessary procedures.

I texted Revolver about the scans and included a picture that I found that summed up our attitudes while doing nearly any online discussion questions while we were in school...

Bad Blog Writer

I must admit that I've been a bad blog poster for a few weeks. No excuses, just busy with life and wanting to relax with my Ipad and lurk around on my favorite blogs.

The family made a beach trip to Myrtle Beach, SC and had a great time with another family, and both sets of parents. The beach and private pool was awesome, but the service in the restaurants was an "I don't care, because you'll never be back attitude." And they would be correct. The days of good service being the standard are behind us. Speaking of which, corporate came down from Georgia to visit and make an appearance at the clinic. We got a tip that one of the directors wanted to make sure that everyone had a name tag, so that she wouldn't have to remember anyone's name. As it usually goes, the name tags came two weeks after their visit, and mine was absent from the delivery. I got my name tag today in a seperate package, and par for the course, they misspelled my name.

 The house is still on the market, with about 15 buyers having looked at it for about two months. New pictures will be taken of the refinished floors, and they do look gorgeous.

On the way to Myrtle Beach, we stayed over  in Atlanta with the intent on a visit to Legoland for the boys, but we forgot about the time change and it was too late to purchase tickets by the time we got in the metor area. We did however still surprise them on the way back home with a 3 hour pit stop at Legoland. The boys had a blast!

I'm gonna try to write about 15 minutes per day to make it a habit. More later...
