Thanks to Erasmo CortezI’ve got to rush out of here on my lunch break to go home and meet the guys from clear internet at my house. They said they would be there between 12 and 1 to install our new internet system. I am really excited to have internet at home now. I’ve always had to wait until I got in to work to use the internet to email, etc, but now I will be able to do it right from home. It seems like more and more these days, people are relying on email as the primary way of communicating and sending information. It was just becoming to stressful to have to wait to get that information until I got into the office. It was really tough on the weekends. The final straw was when my son’s teacher emailed everyone on Friday with some information regarding an assignment that was due on Monday. I left work before she had sent that email, and we didn’t have that bit of information that would have made the assignment much easier for us.

It has been a while that I haven't heard from my friends and previous students in Philippines and I was surprised when I saw their pictures. They were wearing togas or graduation robes. I was so proud of them. If I were there, I would love to give them a gift basket from www.gourmetgiftbaskets.com/. I bet they would love it! The website offers a variety of gift baskets perfect for any occasion. Check out their website if you are interested. How I wish I could give them all as a graduation gift!
Time indeed really flies fast. I hope to see you guys soon and as for now, congratulations on your graduation day! Aim high!

I was very lucky to have supportive parents who made sure I was able to go to college. Now that I have graduated and found a job, I’d love to do something special for them. Because they live in a rural area, they’ve never had internet access at their house. Boy was it hard on those long weekends home from school to be completely off line! I always felt so out of touch with my friends when I returned. Last week while online shopping I came across some wildbluedeals. I’m thinking about springing for internet service for their house. I’m not sure how much they would use it but I think if I could get them set up with an e-mail account and showed them how to search for things they were interested in, they might enjoy it! If nothing else it would give me another way to keep in touchh without having to call every day since they seem to think we need to talk daily. It actually might save me a little time!

I have been a huge fan of sitcoms for a very long time. Friends is probably
my all time favorite but How I Met Your Mother is probably a pretty close second
if I were to rank them all. How I Met Your Mother is similar to Friends in that
it is about a group of twenty somethings most of whom are not married and who
all like to gather together at a local restaurant. How I Met Your Mother is also
set in New York as is Friends. Ted Mosby is considered the main character in
this show because he is the one narrating each episode. The show is told like a
story where Ted is much older and is relating his life back to his children.
Each story is supposed to lead the children closer to how he me their mother
which is, of course, how they chose to name the show. This show has stayed on
the air for so many seasons because of the clever writing. You never really know
what to expect each time you watch a new episode. Check out directtv
chicago online to find out when to catch How I Met Your Mother.

Kraft Kitchens Tips
This great-tasting cake looks like a giant OREO Cookie.
If chocolate glaze becomes too thick, microwave on HIGH 20 to 30 sec. or until desired consistency.
Enjoy a serving of this indulgent cake on occasion, but keep portion size in mind. One cake makes enough for 16 servings.
