I think that I would have a problem with wearing any type of uniform to work, but I do see some of the advantages of having to wear one. Yes you do have to purchase these clothing items, so there is that cost right up front that can prove to be a challenge. Not being able to pull anything out of your closet would hurt me big time. But they have come a long way with today’s medical uniforms that are out there for the huge number of folks that are all ready in the medical field and for the steadily increasing and ever growing amount of people that are entering into this very stable and ever needed profession.
I have found a few sites online that have some nice looking clearance nurses uniforms scrubs that I think would look cute on my kid sister. I’ve sent my findings over to my other sisters and have been waiting for a response to see if they want to go in on some of these clothes with me to give to her for her birthday in the first part of July.
I might have to just break down and call them and see what I can get out of them on the phone, but if I do that I have to know that I will have several hours that nothing will need my attention. You get me and any of my sisters on the phone and you can count on us talking for at least 45 minutes and many times much more than that. And I have 3 sisters that I have to call!!!

For years now I’ve been strolling down memory lane, looking at pictures of my old friends from school. I came across one picture in particular and it hit me. I used to be in a band my friends and I had put together while in school, and I instantly wanted to get the old band together again after all these years.
I had called around to see if everyone wanted to get together and try to play again like old times. Everyone was thrilled and excited to hear that I wanted to get the old band back together, and visit each other after all this time. I had asked everyone if they had their old instruments, knowing my old guitar was stuffed away in a storage unit my Mother has been renting for a few years.
I called my Mom and asked if she could come along with me to the storage unit to look for my old guitar and to my surprise she would meet me there in an hour. After ripping and tarring the unit apart, I had finally found my old guitar. My strings needed replacing for sure, so I went on home after putting everything back and sat down at my computer to look around on the net for classic electric guitar strings. In no time I found an awesome site that offered the best strings for an unbelievable price.
Needless to say when I got my guitar ready and everyone was here, we jammed out and had a great visit.

So while the guys where at my folks the other day taking care of all of the door and window replacement issues that they have been dealing with as of late, they recommended that my folks check into having a full fledged home energy audit in new jersey to see what else they can do to help keep the cost of energy down at the old home stead. It doesn’t look like any type of energy prices are going to be going down any time soon and now is better than later to get as green as possible in any way that you can, especially in your own home.
There really is a lot of assistance with home repairs businesses and programs all over the country now a days. And considering how hot this summer looks like it will become, I just can’t imagine my parents sweating it out trying to conserve their electricity costs or sweating it out trying to figure out how to pay for that high cost. So now it looks like I’ve got to start looking for a company that does this type of work and some insulation assistance in the state of NJ to get lined up over the weekend.

Funny how I am still trying to figure out all of the things that my new iPod can and will do for me. I’ve had the darn thing since Christmas, I really thought that I would have had it mastered by now. They say that today’s kids are way more tech savvy then we ever were and are, I have to say that I am finding out more and more how true that is.
I have had to rely on a couple of teenagers here and there for assistance with numerous, what I call “high tech” issues and my iPod is no different. I just spent over an hour with a neighbor who has been chatting up some of the cool things that iPods are capable of doing. He suggested that I get an iPod Movie Converter that will convert most files that are video formatted to my iPod, which will be cool. Guess I’ll start looking online and seeing what makes and models from what companies are best suited for my needs and wants. Something like this will have to wait until after I get my tax refund check, there are other things that I need to tend to first, but I’ll be doing some research in the mean time.

As it has been many, many years since I was in college, and I remember that student loans were the main reason I was able to go to college and I really appreciate the fact that student loans were there to help me. Now that my own children are getting ready to start their college experience I am so very glad there is still a great student loan program for them to use when they are ready to start school.
We have started looking for different student loan programs to get a feel for what is available and what we have found amazes me. Credit Loans has a great web site that has so very much information, it was almost overwhelming at first to see that much information on one site.
This fine web site was able to give me answers to all of my questions about student loans and to help my daughter decide which kind of student loan she would need this fall when she goes to college. The lowdown on student loans, was the most helpful section and encouraged me to go ahead and apply for a student loan for myself and to finish my degree that has been hanging for 26 years. I really want to thank this fine program for helping both of us get set up for our student loans and thanks for having such a great web site.
