A really good idea to make the holidays more affordable and enjoyable

You know how hard it is to get everyone together for the Christmas holidays. Sometimes it's hard to find someone in your family that wants to have a big crowd of people at their home, and sometimes there is just not enough room for everyone. I found a solution today that is really neat. Why not take your holiday breaks just like you would take a vacation? You could rent a nice holiday cottage, villa, or even a chateau somewhere, share the cost with everyone attending, and voila, Christmas is fun with no fuss and no muss! The rental could be in your own country, or even oversea in some agreed upon location that would please everyone.

I was thinking about what a nice holiday vacation our family would have if we had our get-together somewhere in the Caribbean. All stress would be gone, the weather would be perfect; no snow or ice, no cold to contend with. We could have a true vacation and go from Christmas, right through New Year's.

Actually there is no end to places that a group of people could go for their holidays. Sharing the cost would open up many more possibilities. It would be a good idea to take a look at some travel guides right now and get a head start on planning. There are so many options, depending upon how much money your group has; everything from low budget to no budget. I am glad I discovered this idea. It can make Christmas and New Year's so much more fun!

My Birthday and remembering my life

Today is my birthday and it is a day of thanks for me. I am blessed to have been on this earth for 53 years. I have spent some of the day reminiscing and remembering. Not all of my years have been good, in fact some have been downright miserable, but I have learned from all of them.

I believe that in our lives we have to experience many things. I believe that we need to feel all of the different emotions that life can bring us. In my life I have felt love, hate, trust, betrayal, peace, rage, hope, despair, and sometimes even total emptiness; I have both given advice and comfort, and received them. I have sometimes wanted to give up, but never could figure out how. I have had aspirations to greatness, and I have felt lower than the lowest; I have walked away, and been walked away from; I have shamed and been shamed. I have doubted, and been doubted. I have encouraged, and I have been an encouragement to others; I have believed in what was not real, and I have refused to see what was real; I have been a step for others, going both up and down; I have helped and I have hurt; Most of all, I have loved and been loved.

Today is special to me, partly because of all the things I listed above, for all were things that have made me what I am, but also my day is special because the one I love most is here with me, my wife. My life has been just that: a life; a life that has been through most of the spectrum of emotions, both good and bad. I liken life to a road going cross country; sometimes it’s smooth, sometimes it’s downhill, but sometimes it’s bumpy, rough, and steep. Sometimes so steep and rough that we can’t seen any way to continue on our course. There is however always hope as long as we breathe, so we can never give up. If we keep on going, our road will sooner or later once again be smooth and easy to travel. My road is like that now, and life is good here with my wife.

Happy Birthday to me!

Post cycle therapy is part of the key to body building

I don't take care of myself as much as I should, but I have stopped some of my bad habits, such as smoking and drinking alcohol. I am not fat but I am a few pounds overweight and really not in good physical shape. I did some weight lifting in years past and enjoyed it very much. I would love to go back to it and hopefully I will have more time soon to devote to it.

Lifting weights and excercising are just a couple of the criteria needed to get your physique back in shape and keep it there. Vitamin supplements and hormone replacement are also very important. I have learned that our body tries to keep itself in balance, but the balance it strives for is what it is most accustomed too. For example if you take substances that will cause an increase over what your body considers normal, your body will respond by temporarily cutting back on it's own production of that substance.

This circumstance makes it necessary for people interested in body building to use something called pct post cycle therapy. In a nutshell, when body builders use anabolic or pro hormones for a period of time, then stop, their body may temporarily not produce enough hormones. Body builders quickly learn that if they don't use post cycle therapy, they may lose all that they have gained, during the time when their body is lagging below normal hormone production. This is where post cycle therapy comes in. It will replace those important hormones until the body once again reaches its normal balance.

A new target rifle for my birthday!

My birthday is coming soon, and my brother bought me a new gun. It’s being shipped here to me and is on it’s way as I speak. I can’t wait to get it. It is a target 22 magnum.


Hopefully it will arrive tomorrow and I can do some target shooting. This is the same gun that the Olympic contestants use so I bet it is super accurate. I gave my brother a gun many years ago and now he has returned the favor. I told him that when he gets home we will get together and do some target shooting. We both enjoy that a lot. He has a 22 long rifle just like the magnum he bought for me. I have already bought a couple of boxes of shells for the gun and I’m ready to rumble. Come on UPS, don’t fail me now!
