My Own iPhone App

Okay, this is just an ego thing but I now have my own iPhone app for my blog here and you can get it for free. I know, you're saying, "Um, we wouldn't pay for that anyway." but I just wanted to put that out there.

Just go to on Safari on your iPhone and click the + symbol. Now click add to my home page and you'll have a cute picture of Blitz as an icon and my RSS feed which is all clickable. You can see it on the picture; it's the first icon! :) Not sure if it works on other smart phones but you can try.

I'm so excited! LOL

Skate Shoes

If you’re looking for Skate Shoes then I know just the place. From Nike SB to Vans skate shoes and Osiris skate shoes; you can find them all. Not only are there great deals to be found in all kinds of styles, if you spend over $79 you get free shipping. They even ship the same day and you can have your new skate shoes within 5 days on average. You can get live help on their site and there are separate areas for shopping by brand, sick deals, an electronic gift certificate area and an outlet area.

Everyone who knows me knows I love shoes and not just any shoes either. I love sneakers and sandals and this is exactly what is sold at I really love the Vans Chukka Low selection. While those are men’s styles, I can appreciate how gorgeous they are. I especially love the true white colors since there’s nothing nicer than a pair of white shoes. I was also delighted to see that they have the original Vans in the classic slip-on Checkerboard style like Jeff Spiccoli wore in one of my favorite teen movies, Fast Times at Ridgemont High. You can get a pair of those for a retro look!

So You Think You Can Dance

I missed most of this last night due to my cable company having some issues. It recorded the first 47 minutes then nothing. I read this morning that Lauren was sent to the hospital for dehydration. They sure are dropping like crazy this year with injuries, etc. I went to try to watch last night's episode online but the last update is last week's so I suppose I'll have to watch the recaps tonight instead. I really hate when I miss a show I've been looking forward to and it's worse when I can't view it OnDemand or online the next day.

Explore Memphis

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Memphis Travel. All opinions are 100% mine.

I haven’t been to Tennessee in years but when I go back I can use the Memphis-savvy travel guide to plan my trip. I’d love to enjoy things like the American Dream Safari where I can explore Memphis from the back seat of a 1955 Cadillac or take a cruise with Memphis Riverboats. Heck, why not do both? The car tour sounds super exciting and I would love to get to see the Mississippi River again up close. Let’s not forget the barbecue goodness you find there as well. I’d also love to visit the Memphis Zoo and while I like Elvis I’m not a screaming fan like some but hey, why not visit Graceland while I’m there? I like his music and think it’d be a nice piece of Americana to experience. Last but not least, I’d definitely visit the Beale Street Entertainment District. Featuring live music and outdoor concerts; I’m already there!

Right now you can enter to win a trip package to Memphis. There are prizes given away weekly and you can even enter daily. You can never beat getting something for nothing and if you plan to visit Memphis anyway, why not try to win? I’d be there in a heartbeat if I won one of the many prizes.

Sticking Your Nose Where it Doesn't Belong

So a woman on the beach stuck her face into a K9 police dog's face and he bit it. Now while I feel bad about that or anyone getting bitten it was her and the police officer's fault. Supposedly she'd petted and fed the dog before so while I can't blame her somewhat for thinking he was friendly you never pet or feed a service animal. Then again, the officer who has control of the dog should known better.

I love dogs and we have two of the Belgian Malinois' like the one that bit her. However, in public I know not to pet or mess with any dog that's working without asking. Then again, she asked. This one is a hard one to decide on but no matter what, the service dog should not be taken off of the job. It was her fault and the police officer's fault 100%.

Pet Friendly Honda Element

I'm not keen on the Honda Element's shape but since they came out with the pet friendly truck I really think it's such a great idea that I can look over the shape a little bit. Now while I have no plans to trade in my own truck anytime soon, I love these options and being a pet owner, I'd definitely choose something that had such great ways to help with the dogs, etc.

The accessories are awesome! There's a package that includes a rear car kennel, leash, collar and dog tag, electric fan, kennel organizer, pet bed, a ramp you can stow, dog pattern seat covers (now that's thinking of everything!), floor mats with a dog bone theme, a spill resistant water bowl, tote bag, and 3 dog friendly emblems!

Now while they're not intended for dogs over 80lbs we're okay in that department and I'm sure if it's a huge hit as it should be, they'll eventually accommodate all sizes of dogs.

Merchant Processing

If you own a business and need to process credit cards with 24 hour support and the ability to take every card, BluePay Merchant Processing is for you. Heck, you don’t even have to have a brick and mortar store because you can use their services for an online store as well. I think that is awesome since so many people can benefit from being able to process credit cards right from home and allow their customers to purchase from them securely and safely. Check them out and see why they are top notch in the business. BluePay can be your single source for payment solutions.

Yep, I'm Up

I'm never up this early but the meds make me sleepy so I actually went to bed at 2 am last night. For most, that's super late but for me it's early so I woke up before 7 am. Not bad because I have a lot going on today. I have a customer meeting at 11 am, Comcast is rewiring the house sometime between 1-4, I need to clean up again. By the way, how is it that I cleaned up so well on Saturday yet the house needs it again? I mean it's just us and the dogs but you'd think the Duggars lived here or something. There are dishes, laundry, I need to vacuum and pick up some things. You'd think it'd be spotless around here since I work at home. I know my house is cleaner than most but I see some people's homes and it's like an open house where everything is spotless and doesn't even look lived in. I have know idea how they do it. J, I'm talking to you! I guess I'll get started on some blog posts and then clean up some. At least I have some coffee to start my day off.

A New Way to Cleanse Your Hair

I love straight hair but I have a few issues. First of all I live in Florida where it’s so humid that on most days I look like Annie, straight out of Broadway. If that’s not bad enough, I have wavy hair and it tends to get frizzy. Now there’s a Hair Care that is innovative and takes the place of many products. You can get rid of your shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler and leave-in conditioner; and I use all of those most of the time.

It turns out that a lot of shampoos use products that remove the essential oils from your hair; products like sulfates and detergents. This shampoo doesn’t use those chemicals that make your hair less manageable. I like that because I can’t stand frizzy hair and like I said, I usually get it in the Florida climate. It may even be my shampoo and products that I’m using that is causing this, not the naturalness of my hair. Who knew? I love the ingredients in the Hair Care products from Wen. Chamomile Extracts, Sweet Almond Oil, Cherry Bark and Rosemary Extract are just a few of the natural goodies in them. I bet it smells divine as well. I know I can’t wait to try this out!

Understanding Hosting, etc

I have customers that when I use examples, it helps them understand hosting, domains, etc. The best way I've tried to explain is this:

Hosting: Let's say you have a house but need land. The house is yours but I'm am letting you rent on my land. That is the hosting.

Domain transfers: You own the name but it's moving to where I host. So you are moving your house address to my land. It remains the same address but a new location. (that one doesn't make as much sense LOL)

Redoing sites that are already done: Let's say someone did a site for you but now you want me to take over. I understand you may have paid someone else but it's not as simple as just taking it over and pushing a button. Let's say you have a house filled with furniture. Once you move to my neighborhood, your house is empty. You have the furniture but it's all out in the yard. That's similar to moving your site. Someone still has to put that furniture (data, pics, etc) in your house (website).

As you can tell, I like using the house examples but it makes it easier sometimes. I once had an issue with a person who took over a business from the people I originally worked with. They didn't understand why they had to pay for hosting because what I had done to the site lately? I tried to explain that the hosting is like rent. Anyway, I hope that helps out.

Staycations in Europe

If you live in the United Kingdom and are looking for help with your “staycation” then you can find holiday homes at great prices with amenities that can’t be beat. Whether you and your family want to rent a cottage, lodge or even a boat; you can find it all. Imagine staying at a serene countryside lodge for a little romance or family fun. You can even secure a villa to stay at while you explore Europe. Take a venture to Ireland or visit one of the many parks in Europe.

What is great about renting a home on your holiday is that you get all the comforts you’ve grown accustomed to at home. Whether it’s a washer/dryer combination or a fully stocked kitchen, it’s all there for you to enjoy. Imagine you being able to watch a movie with the family and then being able to enjoy privacy with separate bedrooms and bathrooms. You can’t get that in a hotel or motel and you’ll never have the same peace and quiet like you’ll find with a home rental.

There are great specials to be found as well as a price match guarantee and award winning customer service. When it comes to holiday rentals, you won’t find a better place to book your “staycation” home than with Hoseasons.

Just randomness

I don't even think randomness is a word but my spell check doesn't make it all red and stuff. However, I could have added it to the dictionary the last time I used it meaning I made it into a real word.

Let's see...sometimes my back feels great and other times it starts hurting again and I think, what if it never gets better. What if I have chronic pain forever? What if it's something serious? The only good thing is that when I had X Rays before they didn't show any cancerous masses or aliens so maybe it's all good. Still hoping for a kidney infection so it can go away. I had some bruises on my leg earlier and Rich asked about them and I said well it's either leukemia or the dogs jumped on me and I'm hoping for the latter.

We have tried to go see Inception twice this weekend and both days poor Rich got called into work all day. We'll see it eventually hopefully but we can't complain about the overtime. I mean we might, but it's not a good idea.

I was talking to someone the other day that said she thought 2007 would last forever. See, I'm not the only one who reflects on the glory days of never ending money and financial goodness. I know people get tired of the whole, "I wish it were 2008 again" comments I make and then she says that without any prompting from me and it gives me hope that I'm not the only person longing for the past.

Stainless Steel Sinks

We redid our kitchen a few years ago due to the unsightly 70’s theme that came with the house. One of the types of sinks we looked at was a Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink but had we known about Shop Sinks and Faucets we could have gotten warehouse prices and same day shipping. I love Stainless Steel Kitchen Sinks and they have some beautiful sinks to choose from including those awesome bowl sinks I love. I really like the triple bowl sinks and the next time we remodel I might just have to get one of those. With stainless steel you don’t have to worry about the paint chipping and they’re so easy to clean.

Need a Massage?

Seriously, who doesn't? I'd never had one up until I did Ann's site but boy was I hooked! Ann is a friend of ours who does a multitude of services dealing with massage therapy. My personal favorite is the hot stone massage although I think Rich likes the deep tissue better.

Her site is Serenity Pointe Therapeutic Massage and Nail Salon and it's right here in Panama City! You can call Ann and make an appointment and she'll do anything to accommodate you. Best of all, her prices are phenomenal. If you call, tell her Kim sent you! Prices are available on her site as well as gift certificates.

Bali Pure Natural Artesian Water

I was fortunate to receive some Bali Pure Natural Artesian Water the other day and it was downright good. I waited to do my review till I had actually had some of it and it was worth it. The bottles are adorable but best of all, it tastes great. You know how some bottled water tastes but this was delicious.

Bali Artesian Water is the purest from of still-water available. The water is collected from a purified, untouched water source in a confined underground aquifer then brought to Earth via stainless steel pipelines.

The water is then processed through Micro-filtration, Ozone, and Ultra-Violet lighting to provide you with the most genuine and authentic artesian water available.

Bali artesian water contains no chemicals or additives, and is considered to be in its best form fro human consumption. You can honestly taste the purity and goodness.

Right now they even have a contest where you can win a free case! Check them out and ask your local retailer if they carry Bali Pure Natural Artesian Water.

A Better Day

I had a decent day today. I got to meet with a client today and got the contract so I'll be working on a new site soon. My back felt a tiny bit better too. Although it still hurts, it's nothing like it was even a day ago so perhaps the meds are working. I sure hope so. Hopefully I don't have the weird dreams again. Last night I dreamed of multiple tornadoes but I've done that before and wasn't even taking meds. Was supposed to have a friend over to watch a movie but it was so late by the time everyone got home that we'll do it another night. Hopefully we can go see Inception tomorrow! :)

Two New Online Dating Sites

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of All opinions are 100% mine.

If you’re single and looking to meet someone online there are two sites that recently launched that are getting quite a bit of buzz. and were recently in the spotlight when both members of “Speidi” Twittered about going there to meet someone after their supposed breakup. Now, those two are boneheads but that doesn’t mean that you can’t benefit from what they found.

Online dating has become mainstream in the past few years with many people finding their perfect match. With and you can find some really awesome services. They have two types of membership levels; silver and gold. I visited the site for research’s sake and it’s pretty straightforward and very easy to view. There are updates on the left similar to Twitter with people from my area. To the right is a map showing pictures of members in Florida. What is nice is that there is a free trial membership where you can check things out before you join. The photos are verified too meaning that they had to send in an ID that matches the photo they submitted so you won’t get any unwelcome surprises if you did meet someone in person. Check them out and who knows, you might find your true love. At the very least you may make a few new friends in your area.

Update on My Back

I finally broke down and saw the doctor today about my back pain. He thinks it's not the scoliosis because why would it just flare up years after I was diagnosed (as a child). Anyway, I have a plethora of medicines in case it may be a kidney infection. I also got some pain pills that help out a little with the pain. I am hoping that this medication works and this pain goes away. It did this about a year ago then cleared up to where it only hurt once in a while and never this bad. I'm just ready for it to feel better.

Charter On Demand

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Charter. All opinions are 100% mine.

Charter’s On Demand home page shows you all of the movies, television shows and music that you can get with their service. With On Demand, you don’t have to rush home to make sure you can watch your favorite show and if you forget to record it, just pull it up on the On Demand feature and watch it there. It’s so convenient that you’ll find yourself using it all the time to catch up on things you might have missed.

For movie night it’s an excellent option. One of my favorite choices on there is The Book of Eli. I recently watched this but knowing the ending now has me wanting to go back and watch it again to check out the things I missed the first time. No spoilers here but it’s worth a second look, that’s for sure. With Charter’s On Demand service there’s also no more rushing out to the video store, not that there are many of those left! What about rentals through the mail or kiosks? Well, with On Demand, the movie is always available any time you want to watch it and that’s a real convenience!

Check them out and I bet You will ‘Like’ their Facebook page as well.

Yay, I fixed it!

Okay, I didn't get Blogger's widget to work but I found one on my own that is similar to the retweet button so I used it and it works fine. Now people can share my stuff on Facebook if they like. Not sure if anyone will but I have been retweeted a few times so maybe....(crosses fingers and toes)

Just a Test

Now we have a widget on here that adds the share buttons automatically. I never noticed till now that the HTML I have already with share buttons neglected to use Facebook as an option. Supposedly this will show up now so we'll see with this post. If not, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong unless the HTML I have is taking precedence over the widget.

I have a few "why" questions.

-Why do people hate Nickleback? I kind of like their music and yeah I know, now everyone will despise me for saying that.

-Why do guys say goodbye super fast when it takes girls 30 minutes? I was talking on Facebook with two friends that were guys. Both wrote the usual "I better head for bed" kind of statement and before I could type, "Goodnight. Glad you said hello." they were gone. Poof! Now if I'd been talking to my friend Donna we would have said goodbye for 30 more minutes. Kind of like, "Okay I should go. OMG wait did you hear what happened to such and such?" See the difference? Same goes with the phone. A guy will say bye and hang up. A girl will discuss it for another hour.

-Why is my back flaring up and how come if I had a prescription for pain meds in the US it'd cost me $11 for 30 pills but if I want them from Canada without a prescription it's $75? I guess the whole convenience of no prescription explains the cost difference but wow. So if anyone wants to sponsor my pain meds, feel free. LOL

-Why do I get overwhelmed with my to-do list when I'm the one who made the list? Most of the things will take 10 minutes tops but I see all of those words on paper and think, "Boy do I have a lot to do!" I should not make such a long list but ask Rich, I'm all about the lists.

Chupacabra Found?

Supposedly a Chupacabra was found in Texas but now they are saying it's probably some poor animal with a skin disease. Now how sad is that? They plan to do DNA tests on it to be sure. I guess they'll see if it's a coyote or dog because surely they don't have a Chupacabra's DNA. (just a joke there) Here's a video on the mysterious and probably mythical chupacabras. By the way, a Chupacabra, or the goat sucker, is a legendary vampire like dog. The Chupacabra is known to suck the blood of cattle animals like cows and goats; kind of like a vampire.

Warning: Adult Review - Power Wand

If Showgirls taught us nothing else it's that you can really have some fun in the pool. I love going in the pool at night and having a little fun, which is where the power wand comes in. Not only is it a 3-speed vibrating fun toy but it's waterproof as well.

I definitely had to try out this toy since you can't take anything in the pool that has power usually. Not to mention that some toys will say they're safe for water fun but they aren't at all. Well, this one is. It came with extra batteries (already a plus) and has three speeds. It packs a nice little buzz and has a silicone sleeve on it. I got the purple one just because it's pretty. I like the little hook part that is on the end. Sometimes you accidentally press the speed button though. All in all I really liked it and would recommend it. You won't get a major buzz off of it but for waterproof sex toys I think it's just perfect.

Covert Affairs

We finally got to watch Covert Affairs tonight and I loved it. I've already bonded to the cast so that's a plus and it was fun to see some of the inner workings of the CIA whether they were accurate or not. I also adore Piper Perabo. The first episode was very fun and reminded me just a tiny bit of one of my favorite movies, Point of No Return. Anyway, Piper is very accessible. I don't know how to explain that other than she seems nice and that makes her fun to watch. I also enjoyed Christopher Gorham in it. I didn't like his character in Ugly Betty but I do like him in this. We're definitely keeping it on our DVR schedule!

Save Money Moving

If you’re getting ready to move you should check out U-Pack Moving Company because you save money. You do the packing, they do the driving and everyone wins. They even supply the items you’ll need such as a moving blanket, moving boxes and accessories. Everything you’ll need for your move is available.

Why pay an arm and a leg for a traditional mover? The best part is that you can load your own truck but leave the driving to them. It’s faster, safer and like I stated, you save more money and in today’s economy who couldn’t use a little savings?

Big Brother Saboteur

Any idea who it might be? I already know who I feel more bonded to and who I don't care for so far but as far as the Big Brother Saboteur, I'm thinking maybe it's either Kristen or Brendon. Maybe even Andrew but not so sure on that one. The other two either acted odd to me or I just think it's them. So far I like Andrew, Kathy, Ragan and Matt but that is subject to change. Does anyone else think Rachel reminds them of Maria Kanellis from Celebrity Apprentice just not quite as pretty? That's not being mean to Rachel it's just that Maria is super gorgeous and Rachel has that God-awful laugh that is annoying as hell. I admit it, I love Big Brother and can't wait to see who this saboteur is. Should be interesting.

Price Spider

PriceSpider is a site that searches the web for the lowest prices on everything you could want. You can search for just about anything. In fact, I found the Neat Receipts Scanner, something I’d love to have. It takes your receipts and scans them into software in your computer. This is handy because we keep receipts for stuff and the ink disappears. Never mind if we actually wanted to return something because some stores have ink that is very weak. I think they do it on purpose. Anyway, I found this item as low as $91 on there; much cheaper than looking for it other places. Check out their price on the Sony Nxcam Professional Camcorder hxr-nx5u.

Upgraded to 3.1.2 on iPhone

I took the plunge and did the new jailbreak myself tonight. I could have gotten someone to do it for me and even upgrade to 4.0 but they are all in Destin, etc. I sure wish I could do this for everyone because obviously there's no one advertising in Panama City.

Anyway, it was a beast but I did it. I had to install a firmware file, add that via iTunes, download Blackra1n, that had an error so had to fix that but first I had already down the firmware upload and got scared to death when my phone was now locked. Yikes! So I fixed Blackra1n and let it rain. Whew, my iPhone was now upgraded.

But wait! Then I had to call T-Mobile to have them fix my settings back so I had data (Internet). Okay did that. Now YouTube doesn't hook up. Okay so now I have to install Push Fix. I did it and ran it and that works.

After all that, I can now use apps that require the 3.1.2 firmware. This means stuff like bar code scanners (super cool where you scan anything in a store and it gives you lowest prices in your location), the police scanner I wanted, the MySpace app, etc and while I was there I re-downloaded Winterboard and found this nifty theme below. Now my phone looks like a vending machine! That's not a picture of my phone by the way; I left all of my icons in there that looked like vending machine stuff. :)

Gift Cards from Favorite Places

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of FriendGiftr. All opinions are 100% mine.

FriendGiftr is a site I have mentioned before but it is worth mentioning to you all again. I know how hard it is to find the right gift for people. With FriendGiftr you no longer have to wonder if they’ll like what you got them and best of all, you don’t even have to worry about whether they’ll like the gift card you got them because they are allowed to exchange gift cards without the sender ever knowing and at no cost.

So let’s say that I got my friend a gift card to Starbucks and they didn’t like it. I mean really, who doesn’t like Starbucks? I guess it’s a remote possibility though. So they could change that gift card to Outback Steakhouse (another awesome choice) and I’d never even know.

You can choose from $10, $20, $25, $35, $50, $75, and $100 gift cards and even purchase them from all of the popular social networks such as Facebook, Ning and MySpace; among others. You all know how much I love my iPhone and I can even shop from there as well. (Blackberry and Android is also an option if you have one of those instead of the awesome iPhone)

I am Officially a Nerd

Or what is the non-old version of nerd? Geek? Dork? Okay so anyway, tonight I'm installing some new apps on my iPhone and found a police scanner app that scans around the world. Before I share my joy, I'm annoyed that in order to get our local scanner I have to have the 3.1.2 firmware and I only have 3.0. I'm not sure if I can get the new one because it's jailbroken and looking online gives me a plethora of information that would take me 3 years to digest. I already spent 2 hours doing this stuff although I did upgrade to 3.0. Anyway, I digress.

I found this police scanner that scans all over the world. I actually got to listen to a police scanner in Australia. I actually squealed with joy. Or maybe I should say, "squee" since that's in the Urban Dictionary and all. Anyway, that just rocks. I got to hear the accents and everything. Never mind that I had no clue what they were sending the police out on because I need that other download. I wrote a few hacktivation folks to see if I can upgrade. I have a 3G iphone with Ultrasn0w (that's how I bought it) that is unlocked and jailbroken. My network is T-mobile, 3.0 version, and the modem firmware is 04.05.04 just in case any of you readers know for sure.

I'm also annoyed that podunk Bay County, Florida does not have an online police scanner feed.

Online Slots

If you love gambling but don’t have a casino near you then you might want to try Online Slots. With online slots not only can you play online but you can win real money. It’s easy to get started and there are tons of different games to try. Each one lists the jackpot you can win and there are many specials such as free spins and 100% match bonus. I liked looking at the winner’s section that updates in real time showing you who have just won a jackpot and how much they won. It’s definitely inspiring to see all of the winners that just got a little richer.

I Forgot a Depressing Movie!

Back when I made my post on the really great depressing movies I forgot one that I remembered tonight. It's the wonderfully depressing Last House on the Left. Now I don't mean the most recent one because while it's semi-depressing at least it does have a little bit of a different ending. I mean the one in 1972. It's totally cheesy now but it's one of those movies I only have seen twice because it's that darn sad.

Now just in case you've never seen it and plan to, I am posting spoilers about it so you've been warned. I figure if you haven't seen it by now you really don't care to and hey, it's not the kind of movie for everyone.

So anyway, to me it's so depressing because although the parents get their form of retribution, the girls still died. I mean all they wanted was some pot and for that they get raped and murdered in the most horrendous ways. I mean come on, the one girl had her guts played with by that freaky chic. How sick is that? And yeah, I have a high threshold for gore but this is one of those that grossed me out because I'm emotionally invested in these two girls. I have a very low threshold for emotions. Come on, I cry at those Sarah McLachlan ASPCA ads! And honestly, I have a hard time with some of the Asian and French horror since they are so gory but give me extreme gore and emotions? This one has both.

I loved the remake and it wasn't quite as gory. Seems to me that the 70's movies are even more gory contrary to what you may think. Just an observation and all but some of them are and this is a prime example. Now the rape scene was pretty intense and when we saw it at the theater this one family walked out but come on, did you not know what the movie was about when you bought tickets? Perhaps not. Anyway, this goes on that list that I made a while back which can be accessed from the link above.

Gift Baskets

Anyone who really knows me knows how much I freaking love gift baskets. I love sending them and I love getting them. Who wouldn’t? I mean, instead of one present you get to open tons of gifts all in one neat little basket. In fact, Christmas before last we gave both moms gift baskets filled with things like gift cards all over town and some other present goodness. You should check out because they have awesome gifts. From Starbucks baskets (and you all know how much I’m addicted to Starbucks) to the Sonoma Vineyards Wine Country gift basket; they have it all. Do you see a pattern here? I’m hinting on the ones I like. Y’all know I collect wine! Just don’t say you never had any ideas of what to get me.
