A few things that have been on my mind lately……..
- I have been getting into the TV show The Event. If you haven’t been watching it – I could see it difficult to just jump in and start watching it. Here is a quick synopsis……
The Event is an emotional, high-octane conspiracy thriller that follows Sean Walker (Jason Ritter, “The Class”), an everyman who investigates the mysterious disappearance of his would-be fiancée Leila (Sarah Roemer, “Disturbia”), and unwittingly begins to expose the biggest cover-up in U.S. history.
Sean’s quest will send ripples through the lives of an eclectic band of strangers, including newly elected U.S. President Elias Martinez (Golden Globe nominee Blair Underwood, “In Treatment”); Sophia Maguire (Emmy Award nominee Laura Innes, “ER”), who is the leader of a mysterious group of detainees; and Leila’s shadowy father (Scott Patterson, “Gilmore Girls”). Their futures are on a collision course in a global conspiracy that could ultimately change the fate of mankind.
Here is something to consider about the show – there is a race of aliens that are set to take over the world.
- I am in need of a new pair of glasses and really do not want to spend the typical $200+ that is normal for me. I have written about Zenni Optical before – but I had never ordered from them.They sell very inexpensive prescription glasses through the mail. I decided to check them out and went through the selection process and ordered a pair. If they turn out to be fine – I will be getting a couple of extra pairs – just in case. I paid a total of $54.00 including shipping.
- Like many other people I am looking to reduce expenses – particularly due to rising fuel and food costs. Cable TV is one area – looking to switch to satellite. I am considering dropping cable all together and hooking up a powerful multimedia PC to my TV and get entertainment via the PC. Need to check into that – I know that people have done it.
- Several of my sponsors have recently renewed their contract with me. Please remember when considering purchases for survival & preparedness products that you look to them – as they help support my efforts here. Thanks!!
- A couple of new additions to the Survival Database based on reader JeSter suggestions:
- My Chevy Blazer just kicked the bucket – it was my bug out vehicle. So- I am in the market for something else. Currently I have my eye on a Ford Ranger 4×4 with an extended cab. Rangers are pretty good vehicles. I have an old 1991 model that I drive back and forth to work in and although it is a piece of crap – has done well for me (paid $700 for it). Well – the Blazer has been sold off – time for something else.
- Fellow blogger Badvoodoodaddy and I are going to be doing a 2-part article series soon. One part will be here and another part will be over at The Retreat. Should be pretty interesting.
Take care all –
