Did You Know My Favorite Sport to Watch on TV?

Did you know my favorite sport to watch on tv?

I think I decided tonight what my favorite sport to watch on tv is. I was raised watching baseball and playing softball, and I've always enjoyed watching it on tv and in the stadium. But tonight, when the World Series, a local pro basketball team and college football were all on at the same time, I realized why baseball is my favorite to cheerleaders!

Did You Know That It's Almost Winter?

Did you know that it's almost winter?

Winter's coming up quickly! I love winter, but it can be a bad thing sometimes. The chilly weather always turns the water in your hot tub cold. What's the point of having a hot tub if it's full of cold water? But there's a solution! You can use hot tub covers and the cold weather won't affect the water in your hot tub. You will still be able to relax in peace in nice warm water. Thank goodness!

Did You Know Why People Use HGH Supplements?

Did you know why people use HGH supplements?

According to, people are using HGH supplements for two main reasons. One is to enhance athletic performance and the other is to stay young looking. While Human Growth Hormone is a substance naturally made in the body, it slows down production by around age 30. So many people feel the need to supplement the hormone by injecting or taking supplements. This is a very touchy subject, one that needs to be considered from many angles before ever starting such a program.

Did You Know One of the Best Gifts You Can Give Your Busy Wife?

Did you know one of the best gifts you can give your busy wife?

I helped in my son's co-op all day today and my husband came home early. When I got home, I found he had vacuumed the house and cleaned most of our bathroom! That was a wonderful gift!

Now if he can just learn to cook dinner too! ;)

Did You Know About HGH?

Did you know about HGH?

It seems that people are turning to HGH (human growth hormone) to reverse the signs of aging.  After the age of thirty, the production of HGH slows and the first signs of aging begin to show. Even though people have used both HGH injections and hgh supplements, there are risks concerned with its usage. Be sure to talk to your doctor and do your homework before embarking on anti-aging treatments associated with hgh.

Did You Know You Can Paste and Match Font Styles?

Did you know you can paste and match font styles?

Sometimes when I am inserting paid links, the anchor text does not match my blog style. I did find that if I click on the "edit" button there is a choice that says "paste and match style". Using that allows my pasted text to match the default text in my blog posts.

Did you know there are some people who have to go on diets to gain weight?

Did you know there are some people who have to go on diets to gain weight?

For example, my friend was told by her doctor that she needs to gain weight. The doctor gave her certain weight gain supplements to try. My friend has been very skinny her whole life and it can cause some serious problems, like injuring her ankles and wrists and getting sick easily. That is why weight gaining supplements can be very useful to some people.

Did You Know Target Will Only Accept Sixty Dollars Worth of Returns Without Receipts?

Did you know Target will only accept $60 worth of returns without receipts?

I was not aware of that before. But I was told yesterday by a friend who just had a baby. She got triplicates of three different items (and no she didn't have triplets!) which were things that she only needed one of. So she returned the items only to find she had reached her limit of $60. I know now why it is so important to include those gift receipts on shower gifts!

Did You Know It Hasn't Rained in a Month?

Did you know it hasn't rained in a month?

At least some of the guys on the radio said there had been no traceable amount of rain over the last month. I can't remember if that is exactly true, but it has been a while. I guess when the time comes for wearing women's rain bootsas the old saying goes, "when it rains, it pours", I'd like to be ready!

Did You Know It's Harder to Jog Pushing a Stroller?

Did you know it's harder to jog pushing a stroller?

It's been a while since I've pushed a stroller. Since I've started babysitting this week, I decided to work in a walk or two with the baby in the stroller. I am also trying to up my jog intervals this week, up to a minute and a half at a time. And I can certainly feel the difference when pushing the stroller. It can only surely help to make me stronger. And I like taking the baby for a walk so I think it works out well.

Did You Know I Finished Day One of the Bike Around the Bay?

Did you know I finished day one of the Bike Around the Bay?

As seen in my previous post, I was able to do the first day of this fun cycling event. It was lovely weather and a great day all around. I was glad to have a friend to do it with, it would be much tougher to do alone. We took our time, stopped at every break point for bathrooms, snacks and stretching. I think my favorite part of the ride was the strip along Bolivar Peninsula. I did not realize how long it was! I had a lot of fun and have a feeling of accomplishment in riding the 78 miles of the first days' course!

Did You Know About Bike Around the Bay?

Did you know about Bike Around the Bay?

I had been thinking of doing this long distance cycling event ever since I heard about it. But knowing that I could only do one day of it, I decided against it. I found out earlier this week that a friend of mine who had already registered had decided to drop the second day and only ride the first day of the event. So I decided to take another look at the event. I found out today that they are accepting riders on the day of the event. So I sent an email asking if there would be a prorated price for one day riders. He told me that he would give me the original early registration fee. So...I am in! Tomorrow I am going to do the first day of the Bike Around the Bay Tour-77.8 miles!

Did You Know Beans Can Ferment If Soaked Too Long?

Did you know beans can ferment if soaked too long?

I had a bag of beans that I split in half for different recipes. I cooked one but did not have time to get to the other that same day, so I just changed the water and let the beans soak another night. They smelled "funny" when I rinsed them and got ready to cook them. As they cooked my son stated that "whatever is in the kitchen smells bad!" I agreed. After a short search online, I learned that beans can ferment if left to soak too long. I think these sure did.

Did You Know About 365 Days of gratefulness?

Did you know about 365 days of gratefulness?

Last week at church there was a challenge put forth to come up with a list of things we are thankful for over the next 365 days. That is one year of finding one thing a day for which to be grateful. Shouldn't be too hard right? Well, I do wish I still had the mind of a three year old ("thank you for the flowers, and the pretty colors, and the windows, and the mailbox, and the sky, and the dog, and the marbles, and the...) Just one a day....why can that be so hard sometimes...?

Did You Know I Had to Get an Insurance Quote?

Did you know I had to get an insurance quote?

Or at least I thought I did. After a minor incident involving someone in the neighborhood (well, it was their relative anyway) I called to find an insurance quote, wondering if my rate would go up. Thankfully, the rate won't go up. I just hate it when stuff like this happens.

Did You Know I Got Four Pair of Shoes for Ten Dollars?

Did you know I got four pair of shoes for ten dollars?

Well, they are all for my daughter. We hit Payless today, and they had their sandals on clearance for $3 each and it was the last day of the buy-one-get-one-half-off-sale! She went to the register with three pair, but at that rate, I told her to get the fourth (I can be so generous like that!) They are cute shoes and I was happy for her to get something "decent" looking. Not a bad deal for either one of us!

Did You Know About Field Trips for Teens?

Did you know about field trips for teens?

My son's marine biology class went to the beach today. Even though it was windy and the water temp was about 80 degrees, it turned out to be a nice afternoon. A local naturalist came to meet us and help the kids identify organisms that they found. There was lots of digging, seining, shell collecting, and even shivering! While my son said this was not as good as the physics field trip (Schlitterbahn water park!) he said it was still pretty good.

Did You Know What I Do When I Can't Sleep?

Did you know what I do when I can't sleep?

I couldn't sleep again last night. So after laying awake for awhile, and to get my mind to shut off and quit thinking, I turned the tv on. Of course there is not much to watch late at night/early in the morning. There are tons of make up, hair care, fat burner reviews, weight loss plans, and money making paid programming on. That's really about all there is to watch. At least it does help with the falling asleep!
