Since it's all about where you went to High School around here I thought it would be fun to keep a list of upcoming area Class Reunions. If you have one coming up please e-mail info at email@example.com.
I've been talking about my recent visit to Dent Nation to find out how much it would cost me to get rid of the hail damage on my 2006 Chevy. I plan on keeping my car until it just stops running.....I don't want a car payment now plus and I have my new masters degree to pay for too. To my surprise I could actually afford to get the dents out.
As soon as I arrived they cleaned up my dirty "Jack" (that's what I named my car after Captain Jack Sparrow.) Bill Goehl, expert in colliision repair and paint-less dent removal, wanted to make sure he was able to see each and every dimple and dent in my car before he started. I could have just stayed in their lobby area and watched TV but I wanted to see just what went into dent removal.
I do believe my car felt and home with the other cars. It looked a lot like Christmas in the garage......
He got all his tools out, opened my trunk and was ready to say goodby to the hail damage. I wanted to share with you what I am calling my phase 1 dent removal. Check out how quickly Bill, with Dent Nation, was able to get rid of them......
I'm still in shock. So quick and harmeless on the pocketbook and car. Of course I was lucky I didn't have the kind of hail damage some of my friends got from that last storm. That would take a little longer. Time depends of course on the extent of the damage.
What a learning experience! I can't wait to see what they do with this car.....
My friend Nicole had several of the girls over for a holiday get together. It's as if she too brought Pinterest to life. Check out her Santa Hat Brownies. I know you too can pull this one off. So cute....
More great ideas for the holidays...let's follow each other on Pinterest here is my link....
Loved watching "Godzilla" as a kid and looks like May 2014 there will be a new "Godzilla" movie. Check out the trailer.....only thing is you don't get a good look at him or her. The fun of those old school movies was the cheezzzy factor so I'm wondering if "Godzilla" will be all high tech.....I'm pretty sure that will be the case.
'The 12 Days of Christmas' would really cost you even more this year. PNC Financial just released their annual study on what it would cost to buy everything from the song. And this year, you'd have to spend . . . $27,393.17. That's up 7.7% from last year, when it cost $25,431.18.
But that's only the price if you buy everything ONCE. Technically, if you want to go by the song, every day you have to RE-BUY everything from previous days.
Like, on day three, you'd give three French hens . . . but also two more turtle doves and another partridge in a pear tree.
So if you follow it that way, you'd spend $114,651.18.
The cost increase this year comes from a 10% rise in the price of hiring 10 lords-a-leaping . . . apparently men who can jump are at a premium in late 2013? Also, the price of four calling birds is up 15.4% and nine ladies dancing is up 20%.

Did you already shop to much for yourself?....LOL. Here are six cheap, easy Christmas present ideas, just in case . . .
1. Put some cookie mix in a jar. Take a mason jar, layer the ingredients inside to make cookies, put a ribbon on it, and attach the baking instructions.
2. Fold some $1 bills into origami shapes. Then, if you give someone $10, it looks way cooler than just a $10 bill or a check.
3. Make a big batch of homemade cookies. No one can be totally disappointed by a ton of cookies.
4. Buy a bunch of lottery scratchers.
5. Burn a CD mix. Older relatives and coworkers might still appreciate CD mixes, and it shows that you put some thought into it. For someone younger, you can put it in a thumb drive.
6. Make a photo collage from their Instagram photos, or other photos they like. You can do it online, and have them printed cheaply at a Walgreens. Photo printing costs have gone way down since there's no real demand anymore.
