Our Neighbor's House

Authored by Rickey Combs

One of our neighbors recently lost their home to a fire, and our entire neighborhood banded together to help them in their time of need. I organized a clothing drive and some other neighbors organized food donations and temporary housing. I was so humbled to watch our entire neighborhood jump in to help out, and it made me more thankful than ever that we live in such a wonderful area. It was devastating to watch our poor friends go through this terrible experience—one in which everything in their home was lost, and it made more thankful than ever that my husband and I have an alarm monitoring service. It seems like such an improbable thing, but my neighbors are living proof that disaster strikes every day. The neighbors have since told us that they wish more than anything that they’d had home monitoring of their own—it’s likely the authorities would have been alerted sooner and less damage would have been done. If there’s one thing I can recommend, it’s to check out home security systems online and sign up with a company as soon as possible.

Time To Shop

I love shopping online. It's so much easier than running out to the store and dealing with crowds and lines. Plus, it allows you to easily price check different stores and prices.   Lately, I have been looking online for home products like the turquoise bedding artistic silk throw and a shower curtain with valance.  I want some more color to brighten up my place.  I'm sure I will keep the living room in black, white and red but the bedroom and bathroom could use some liveliness. 

I should really invest in a small air pump for our air mattress. We don't have overnight company too often but it would be a good idea to be prepared.

Ghost Hunters: Buyer Beware

Lost Girl: New Syfy Series


Lost Girl follows supernatural seductress Bo, a Succubus who feeds on the sexual energy (sometimes called "chi") of humans.

Now, she has hit the road alone and afraid. She discovers she is one of the Fae, creatures of legend and folklore, who pass as humans while feeding off them secretly and in different ways, as they have for millennia. Relieved to find out that she is not alone, yet horrified, Bo decides to take the middle path between the humans and the Fae while embarking on a personal mission to unlock the secrets of her origin.

With the help of her human sidekick, Kenzi, and Dyson, a sexy Fae working as a human police detective, Bo takes on a challenge every week helping a Fae or human client who comes to her to solve a mystery, or to right a wrong.

Online Shopping

This guest post from Werner Rogers

I really love to shop online. It is amazing that you can take care of so many things these days without even leaving your house. Of course I love to buy lots of clothes, shoes, and books online like everyone else does. It’s nice not to have to beat the crowds and deal with people at the mall. But I also like to use some other services online, like shop for the best utility prices and banking deals. I really love it that now I can do all my banking online and also electronically pay my bills. It’s great not having to go to the post office and buy stamps and waste my time writing checks. Another new thing I’ve been doing is going to http://www.shopelectricityratestexas.com to see if I can get a better deal on my home energy costs. It’s nice to finally have a choice in who I choose to provide my electricity. I think it’s good for the companies to have a little competition and not take my business for granted. Maybe now they’ll start treating people a little better and offer better deals.
