Family favourites on satellite TV

Thanks for the guest post by Neville Mcintyre

Total entertainment via www.Direc4U.com is the most amazing thing ever created and I can watch all my favourite programs and sitcoms through it. The amazing choices and quality allow perfect viewing opportunities at any time of the day or night. I work strange hours and the system allows me to catch up with programs I may of missed. I simply love watching the television and my all time favourite show Frasier is shown quite frequently. Frasier is about two pompous brothers Niles and Frasier whom are psychiatrist’s and Frasier has a radio show where he dispenses emotional treatment to his audience via the air waves.

Niles, who is he younger brother and has an excellent character is married to a psychotic woman whom his brother has slept with once. This caused a few rifts within the family but all in good fun. The woman is strangely demented with a passion for the macabre. I can relate to this because of my mother-in-law whom is also a bit strange and possibly uses a broom stick to get around. The whole show is based on the lives of these two brothers and they actually are possibly in more need of psychiatric treatment than their patients. It’s an hillarious show from the beginning to the end and has me in fits of laughter.

School Days

The article written by Landon Gilbert

The kids are excited to get new clothing, but never excited to get back to school. We leave early in the morning, it usually takes most of the day. I get them fed and we set theAdt Alarm, then shopping here we come. My kids are older, in high school, and they have to have everything their way. They have to pick out everything. It has to be cool. The supplies are pretty easy to shop for we usually get them at Wal-Mart.

Clothes and shoe shopping is next on our list. They spend hours in Brass Buckle choosing the right look. They have to have everything name brand and with the latest fashion styles. I end up getting them quite a few outfits. My daughter changes her mind so many times trying clothes on. We finally finish finding the right clothes, several hours later. Now it is time for the shoes. They usually get two or three pairs, and we get them at Payless Shoe Store. They always have some kind of Bogo deal that saves us some money. I am so relieved when they finally decide on everything they need. I do not have to worry about this for a while.

The Grammy Awards

This guest post from Lenny Mcknight

I enjoy watching The Grammy Awards on cable when it comes on every year. This show can be a lot of fun for me. You get to see different kinds of performances. Some of these artists I would never get the chance to see perform at all if it wasn’t for this show. This show is great to watch and see who wins all of the different awards. The various artists perform. They usually wear elaborate outfits and have a lot of dancers with them. It is always a great show. I don’t know who a few of the artists are on there, but always have a great time watching them. Then I get really excited when my favorites or someone that I know very well is up to perform. This is one awards show that I never miss out on watching. I always have a great time when this one is on and even watch it with my daughters. The kids will get up and dance around the room having a fun time. I can’t wait for it to be on again.

Taking a Day Trip

I appreciate the guest post, Lindsay Valdez

What better way to get the family together and enjoy a day of fun and bonding then the day trip. There are many exciting places to go right in your own backyard and each state has its own unique appeal. Whether it is a day at the beach, a day at the river, or a day in the mountains, the day trip is the perfect getaway.

It begins like any vacation or trip begins with planning where to go and what the family would enjoy. Next comes the preparation or logistics if you will and these include: taking water and food, the proper clothes, maybe a first-aid kit, cell phone, and a small toolkit in case of a breakdown. The final thing that must be done is to turn on your home security cameras before leaving the house. It might be a good idea to let someone know where you are going and when you plan to be back.

My family loves the mountains and the adventure and beauty they bring. We live in the state of Colorado in the Denver metropolitan area next to the Rocky Mountains. One of our favorite drives is the drive up to Mount Evans. Mount Evans is one of the fourteeners (mountains with peaks towering over 14,000 feet) and the road up to the top of the mountain is one of the more exciting scary drives in the state. The last several miles of the trip the road narrows to where you can look on either side and see nothing but sky. Finally when you get to the top, the view is breathtaking. You can see the entire state of Colorado and Kansas.

New address

In a few days I will have my new, self-hosted blog, my birthday gift from Rob, all set up and this blog will no longer be active. Until then, I’ve arranged for a few guest bloggers to write some blog posts about things pertaining to house/home. Once the new address is up and running I’ll be sure to post again and let you know! Until then, enjoy the guest bloggers. =)
