Winter Is Here

I live in South Dakota and luckily I live in the part of the state that didnt fare out too bad but there are parts of the state that have gotten major snow amounts.  My prayers especially go out to the families that got affected by tornadoes last night.

Every morning I check out my site Country Gourmet Home to see what the DEAL OF THE DAY is.  Today is meat loaf and that really sounds good on a cold snowy winter day.  You really should check out the Deal of the Day, even I, as a consultant, am not able to take a discount because I am already given such a great deal.  Now you may be asking why I would tell you about this when I don’t even get a commision as a consultant but I am all about getting a  good deal and want to make sure everyone is aware that this is out there.

Frustration Has Set In!

I will be the 1st to admit that I am not very smart when it comes to technology.  I feel like I have done pretty good by getting a business facebook page set up(even though I dont think I have done this completely right) and I have started this blog.  This is where you all come into play I am hoping.  I think in order for my business facebook page to work correctly I have to have so many people like it.  Can you be so kind and to like my facebook page.  I would really appreciate it.  Since I feel like I am a little mixed up today I think I will tell you about the dip mixes beings I feel like a dip when it comes to this computer stuff.
