The article written by Alonso Kramer
When we were growing up, my sister was always so good at any kind of art. She could draw really well, painted well, and she was always so creative. When she got to college, she became an art major. My parents were not exactly thrilled about her choice for a major because they thought she would not be able to make any money with an art degree. Despite their concerns, my sister graduated with a degree in art last year and has been working as an art teacher.
Her real dream was to open an art gallery. She has been working with some other artists to open an art gallery. They have found a space to use and they are working on setting up all of the utilities. She told me that she went to t1.xo to set up phone and internet for her new art gallery. She said they just have to put a few finishing touches on some of the pieces that they have all contributed and that the gallery should be opening next week. She invited my parents to the opening and I think they are actually pleasantly surprised that she has been successful in achieving her dream.
I am so proud of her and I hope that she can continue to turn her passion into a career.

The minute my bags hit the bed in my hotel room, I reached for the remote and flipped on direct tv corpus christine. The flight into Texas had been smooth but baggage claim had led to me the point of breaking out into sweats. There is nothing quiet as fearful as being left standing at the carousel and wondering why in the world your bags are the LAST ones on the belt.
To my relief, they showed up just before I started toward customer service. All I wanted to do was enjoy a hot shower & get lost in some TV before preparing for tomorrows presentation. I had already decided room service was in order tonight and an old movie. After that, I would be all geared up to work on the laptop and prepare the final touches for tomorrows big meeting with corporate. Anytime I travel out of town, I have a mini-me vacation. It always consists of a hot shower, room service, and a movie. It is good for the traveling soul.

My grandmother was really big on getting out and recharging but there was something I never knew about her. I had no idea she was growing lilies at a farm upstate until she died and left the whole place to me! I didn’t know much about gardening and it took me forever to learn but here I am now a few years later really knee deep in this whole lily farmer thing. I love living off the land and being kind of far from civilization and I had no idea how good for me all the peace and quiet would be! I got wildbluedeals.com internet and made sure cable worked out here, too, since I don’t like to be out of touch just because I’m holed up here. The house she had was also really big so I’m able to have lots of friends up at any given time which is a lot of fun. I wish I had known about grandma’s passion while she was still alive so I could have come up here and shared it!

I have long been one who my friends thought of as a “tree hugger.” As long as twenty years ago I started looking into solar power and renewable energy. I never really thought it was a cost effective thing for me to do, though, as I am a grade school teacher on a limited budget.
Recently, I once again looked into green technologies to see how they had advanced in the last twenty years. It turns out they are much more efficient and cost effective. Plus, the federal government is offering great tax incentives for those who install these things.
I decided that before I went to solar and renewable, my house should be more efficient. So I had new, green, double-paned windows installed in my house. I now expect to see up to 20% home energy savings through green technology, just from installing new windows, and I get a huge tax break!
If you are scared to look into green technologies because of price, the time could not be better to check these solutions out. You can save on http://www.newyorkenergyrates.com/ and feel good about saving the environment at the same time.

The best show on TV today is Hell’s Kitchen with the famous mean chef Gordon Ramsey. He is so awful to people, but I have to admit it’s a lot of fun to watch. I can’t imagine ever trying out for a show where you would suffer from such verbal abuse.
I haven’t decided if he improves their cooking, because they don’t really show him teaching the aspiring chefs new techniques or tricks. Maybe this is something they do behind the scenes. The contestant that wins receives the head chef position over one of Gordon’s restaurants, so maybe that is worth the abuse that Gordon heaps on.
He does have nice moments, and I enjoy the part of the show when he talks to people and shows them respect. I think that eating at his restaurant would be nice, because he always makes sure that the food that leaves the kitchen is well made and presentable. I also think that some of the dishes look appetizing and would like to try them.
I watch this show on my satellite T from EXPERTSATELITE.com when I record it on my DVR system. I watch a lot of TV and the DVR allows me to watch what I want when I want to watch it. I can record things that are on at the same time and watch them later.
