Coming Along Nicely

There was an email in my email inbox confirming that order for the Agogo Bells was indeed processed and ready to head out my way this morning. I am not the most patient person in the world so I do appreciate all that the Internet brings to us almost instantly. I can’t image ordering anything that I couldn’t check up and/or track online. We are the generation of instant gratification indeed!

I’ll feel a lot better once it is here and I know that it has arrived in time for the party next week! There are going to be a good amount of friends and family there that I haven’t seen since last Christmas. I sure hope everyone is on their best behavior and that no drama starts up between anyone, but that hasn’t always been the case these past couple of years. But that is a whole other can of worms that I don’t want to open up right now.

Seattle’s Best Decaf Coffee Used In Our Break Room

Drinking coffee is relatively new to me. I have always been a tea drinker. But I kept being handed different types of coffee drinks at work that people would buy for everyone and eventually I started getting used to the taste, since I just couldn’t throw it away and they kept insisting to at least give it a try. I still enjoy my hot cup of tea first thing in the morning and the one that I have right after dinner. But throughout the day I do enjoy a cup of coffee now and then and co-workers are still coming in with new coffee based drinks that are on sale or are some type of holiday special, which is fun!

The coffee that is always available in the break room is this best decaf coffee that I’ve tried so far. It is Seattle’s Best Blend Decaf Coffee that they order online.

I do try and drink as much decaf coffee and my tea as well, so it doesn’t make me too wired up and we all know that caffeine is not good for you in the long run. I don’t think caffeine affects me like it does so many other people. I really can live with or with out it.

Hard Lessons

In this life, we all have to learn some lessons the hard way. One of the lessons I learned was about car insurance. It always pays to have it. I remember when I got my first car and I had set up an appointment for the next day to buy insurance. The problem was that I wanted to drive it home immediately. As soon as I got off the lot I was hit from behind by a truck.

Needless to say, the incident cost me a fortune. To this day, I will never get in a car without insurance! I highly recommend that anyone buying a vehicle should look for car insurance quotes before you drive the car anywhere! I hope you can profit my hard earned lesson!

Power Down

I was reading an article about how much power is wasted by leaving your computer on overnight. The total amount is staggering. Each year, up to $2.8 billion dollars are spent to power unused computers in the USA. That is estimated to be the equivalent of 4 million cars on the road.

I think Americans are still just getting started looking into the amount of energy we use. Not only do we leave on computers, I see porch lights on in the day time. We need to become more aware of how we use the energy we have. If we all do a little, we could do a lot!

I won the office pool!

It’s finally happened! I won the office pool for the monster truck tickets for the show next week. That’s right, four tickets to the show. I plan to treat my family to the event, but it seems I’ll have to buy one more ticket so we all can go. Anyway, playing the office pool has finally paid off. I’ve been playing for years with no results, so it’s nice to finally have something to show for it!
