The Secret World Of Og

A friend of ours posted the clip you see above on our message board, and it is so sweet that I wanted to share it here. If you were a child of the 80's you might recall this ABC Weekend Special adaption of Pierre Burton's classic children novel The Secret World Of Og. As a child I LOVED this book, and later as a Mom I enjoyed reading it to each one of my own children.

What a fun walk down memory lane. They just don't make cartoons like this any more.

Time To Start Saving

Lately when I read the newspapers or listen to my local radio shows I hear a lot about the poor economic times south of the border, and how even here we will definitely be affected in some way or another because of the slowing United States economy.

I consider myself to be a thrifty person, not exactly the penny pincher type, but definitely some that is normally more interested in saving money than I am in spending it. I believe in utilising a good Savings Account in order to save money, and take advantage of good rates.

I had the opportunity to visit the website for WaMu Savings Accounts, and read about some of the benefits, and features that are associated with these types of accounts. For instance did you know that they offer free online banking to their customers along with free electronic statements? I read that and thought that is very cool, and convenient!

Another very cool feature of the Wamu Savings Account is that if you maintain a minimum monthly balance of $300.00 the company will wave all monthly service fees. This is one way that they encourage customers to save, and hey how cool is it to be rewarded by a financial institution for a change! B)

Heads Or Tails Sit *OR* Stand

I could not make up my mind with this week's theme of sit OR stand so I came up with a compromise. :D

Sit, and stand is represented in this vintage photo that I purchased from an estate sale this past weekend.

I often pick up old photos at sales, and wonder about who or what may be behind the images, and for some reason this couple held a sad attraction for me.

When I inquired who they maybe I was told by the original owner's descendants that they believed the couple were in fact the owner's (who had just passed on at age 100) grandparents, but had no real idea as to who they were, their names, or even where the photo may have been taken. They speculated it may have been England.

The only clue I have to its origin is a stamp at the bottom of the photo. It reads Davis & Lloy (probably Lloyd) Photos, I also purchased a few items that were definitely hand-made in Ireland so this couple may in fact be Irish?

Any thoughts, or ideas on where they may have come from or a date would be much appreciated. I do think they may be Edwardian, and if they were the owner's grandparents this photo may date to the turn of the century.

Happy H.O.T. day and thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Remembering Boston

My Mom's birthday recently passed by, and whenever our family gets together for special events like this we always end up reminiscing about past good times. I guess most families are like that. :D

We were fortunate growing up in that we have close relatives living along the US eastern coastline, so as a family we often travelled throughout the states that border the American coast, such as New York, Connecticut, Florida, and Massachusetts where we have many extended family members, and friends.

Occasionally we would fly for vacation, but more often than not we would take road trips in my Dad's old LTD Ford station wagon with the wood panelling. If you were a child of the 70s like me you should definitely remember those lol!

My Dad is long passed away now, but those memories, and things to do in Boston, and other fun cities have never left me. One thing I would like to do with my own kids when the funds are available is visit the Boston Museum of Fine Arts which you can get a great deal on admissions in combination with other great Bostonian tourist sites via Trusted Tours & Attractions. If you are unfamiliar with this travel website, they provide online travel guides for all the major tourist destinations in the USA. These guides are highly informative, and can save you big bux $$$$ on your vacation plans. Check out their things to do in Los Angeles pages, and you'll see what I mean about combining great touring opportunities to see everything you want to, while saving big dough. The latter then being able to be spent on souvenirs. :p

Also if you sign-up for their free travel newsletter before the end of July 2008 you can win $150 bux worth of Itunes! How cool is that!
