Over the last many years I have managed a computer network. It gets fun sometimes when they call say there computer will not come on, the key piece of information they do not tell you is the power of the building is turned off. Not joking, this actually has happened in a tech support call. Some of the better times is when you can fix customers issues and they are happy. The speed of the network connection has helped allot. You can use access software to get into their remote computer over the computer network or internet network and solve their computer issue or software problems. The speed today is maybe twenty times what it was ten years ago with the new super fast internet and the newer remote access software. The new remote access software is more secure with up to 256-bit encryption allows you access computer servers anywhere in the world along with being able to access a Mac or Linux Computer, all with the same piece of software. I do remember the days where we had a different kind of software for each kind of computer. With the increased speed and improved software has made very easy to support more with less techs. Just what new tech innovations will improve in remote computer access in the new future.

The big day is getting closer when we do things for the ones we love just to show them they are on our short list of important people! I had always given my wife a box of candy for Valentines Day. We would enjoy it together and of course I would give her a card. I read every card before deciding on the right card for her. For a while I would give her a silly card with something like frogs on it. She always bragged about how much she liked it. Then one year I gave her a serious card because we had a year of personal triumps and I could not find a frog or a kitten card that reflected that. She said she loved the serious card so much and how much it meant to her. I could tell the difference on how this card really touched her. Needless to say no more froggie cards. Then I was at her office one Valentine’s Day when I noticed there were flowers on everyone’s desk but hers. They were all different but they were beautiful. When I asked her about the flowers she said they get them every year for Valentine’s Day from their husbands and some even get them from their Dad’s! I had not thought of flowers and I do not know why! After we went to lunch I dropped her back off and went right to the flower store. The flowers were an enormous hit. Needless to say 1800Flowers is permanently written on my roladex! I can call them and they can deliver them to her office so she will also have flowers. Now that I send her flowers each Valentine’s Day she rushes home to thank me even though she called me several times before she got home. It touches her that much. I now give her flowers every year and I have also found surprising her with flowers for no reason is a great idea as well. Anything we can do for the ones that are most special in our lives we should because it means so much to them and it makes you happy to see their joy. I know understand when people say to say it with flowers because they do speak volumes.

One thing that people have to have to function if you are an eyeglass wearer is a good pair of prescription glasses. When we went to pick up our eyeglasses from our eye doctor we were hit with an enormous bill for eyeglasses for our daughters. I did not know how people were able to afford eyeglasses at the over inflated prices taht we were hit with. Because our daughters are young we were going to be needing glasses even more then we normally would because their eyes are changing and so are the shapes of their faces. We would have them adjusted but they would look a little small which lead us to buying new glasses each time. We knew there had to be a better way and there is. We found a website that offers prescription eyewear for $6.95 a pair! That is not a miss type either. It use to be $8.00 but they went down on their prices! You do not hear that every day. With prices this low we can afford to get our girls more then one pair at a time in case they damage one. As my girls have pointed out we can get one to match some of their favorite outfits! I am so glad that there is a company that realizes the family needs to have a way to get the things we need without the large costs attached. They actually have a cool website so you can try on your eyeglasses to see how they look on your face before you buy them. It does not get any better then that.
If you are interested in a product you can usually tell how dependable it is and how well it is made by it’s track record. If you are needing to purchase Combat Boots or Jungle Boots and you want to know where the best boots are that you can depend on you need look no further then our military. They put the boots that they wear through so much more then we can during a days activities. The Wellco company has been making boots for the military since 1965. You would think if they were not dependable the military would have found another supplier but they have not for 45 years. We have a farm that we run and even though it is just a small family farm we have to have dependable footwear. You will find us standing in snow just as fast as running water to fix fence posts. We are often standing in stuff that we later have to wash off our boots and our boots have to be able to take it everyday. From jumping on a tractor to riding on a hay truck we are done at the end of the day and that is when we and our boots get to take a short rest and start again the next day.
Working with a lot of animals we see a wide range of cats. My family and I decided several years back that we would make it our mission to help cats and dogs that were in bad situations to find better homes. This mission has been heartbreaking and rewarding. Several of our furry friends have become a part of our family giving us a large family unit. Naturally cat health is a very important part of our everyday lives. We want to make certain that our family and visitors have the best care possible and that means giving them nutritionally balanced foods as well as lots of play time. We have found that cats get all of their socializing through their play. When we have a new cat come into our home it has usually been through a very difficult situation. Our family cats begin what they need to do to make the nervous new member feel welcome. They almost know what their jobs are and they take them serious. From washing the new ones to walking them through our home and showing them everything they all have a job. I am so proud of our family both four legged and two legged for the difference that we make everyday for the animals.

Everyone has a new year’s resolution. Many people want to loose those few extra pounds and some people want to change any habits they have that may not be good ones. Which ever category that you fall into there is a solution. If you want to shed those pounds then you might consider exercising more and if you want to change the habit of being habitually late then you might want to look into the many casio watches that are available. My sister is always 15 minutes late no matter where she is going. Most people that invite her know this fact and invite her at a time of 30 minutes early so she will be on time. Her birthday is at the end of January and we are thinking that a good watch might be the perfect gift to help her with her resolution. We found one that looks just like something that she would pick out for herself and more then likely that one will be our choice even though we are still looking. I have had no problem finding one for me but I have to remind myself that this is for her. My birthday I will shop for one for me!
