Flyer About Insurance in the Mail

It seems that no matter what I do, I get inundated with a large number of flyers.  Now, most people would be angry or frustrated about it, but I don’t mind at all.  It gives me something exciting to look at, though I don’t necessarily like the impact these flyers have on the environment…

There was one flyer that caught my eye today and it was about how you could get free insurance quotes on line.  Though I had looked into it before, I hadn’t realized how easy it was to do it yourself, and I think that the next time I need to get new quotes, I’ll save the gas (since it is bad for the environment) and do my shopping online instead.

New Hotel Experience

I would like to say that I am a “man of the world” when it comes to staying in hotels, but the experience I had over the last month put all my other hotel stays to shame.

You see, I was away on business for the last five weeks as we were setting up a new branch of our company.  Being one of the senior staff, I was sent to oversee the launch of our new branch and it ended up being a success.

But for me, the real reward came from my first experience with extended stay hotels.  Not only was the service and accommodations great, but I learned that the pricing was excellent as well.

Strangely, I am looking forward to my next business trip – I just hope my next hotel stay will be as good as my last.

Finding the Right Weight Loss Pill

My wife has been doing a lot of research when it comes to picking the right diet pill.  You see, she has allergies to many different things and she doesn’t want to suffer any kind of ill-effects due to her choice of losing weight.

So, she has been doing research online to find the best weight loss pills for her.  This has involved many hours so far, sitting in front of the computer, but she is determined to figure it out.

Hopefully, she will be able to find one that she can use – she just doesn’t have the time for any kind of traditional exercise regimen.

Coming Home

It has been a really interesting experience watching the proceedings of trying to get my wife’s family to come live over here with us in North America.  You see, my wife is Croatian and it took us some work to get her to be able to immigrate over here.

Now, she has been trying to get her family to come over from Croatia to a better life than what they have in their home country.  She has been using the services of an immigration attorney to make sure that there are no problems with respect to the immigration proceedings.

She is supposed to hear whether or not they will be allowed to immigrate within the next couple of weeks – I hope the results are positive.

Weight Loss in Pill Form

When I look down at my waist, I have to sigh.  For years, I had prided myself on having a six-pack (okay, maybe it was only a four pack), but I never found myself with any kind of weight problems.

But since taking a desk job two years ago, my weight has increased to the point where I am starting to only have a one-pack (getting a bigger gut).

So, I have decided to try Hydroxycut hardcore to see if I can shed my excess weight.  I don’t have time to workout at this point in my life, so I hope that they will workout.  I’ll try and report back later on my results.
