    Cool Site for Patron Saints

    Did you ever wonder WHO the patron saints are?

    What are they the patron saints of?

    When I grew up, I always prayed to St Anthony when something was misplaced/ lost.

    St Anthony was very good at helping “find” the lost item.

    Check out this site for all the Patron Saints.

    Going to Myrtle Beach?? A few “musts”

    After traveling to Myrtle Beach for the first time, these are what I’d recommend the MB visitor check out.

    1.) Must do the Deep Sea Fishing Experience;it will create a lifetime memory. Great value for the money(like $45-55 for about 5 hours).It’s something anyone can do, as the company helps out with EVERYTHING. Little River Fishing Company.

    2. Check out the Midieval show in the colliseum. A different, yet back in time experience.
    3. Eat at Duffy’s Shack in north Myrtle Beach. Tasss tt eeeee.
    4. Be sure to visit the KITE shop at Barefoot Landing. BL is a cool setup of a “Mall on Water.” The Kite shop is fun for anyone from 2 -102 years old.

    Enjoy.

    A Different type of Musical Website

    Great website for music.

    You tell the site a song/ artist you like and it finds you other artists and songs with similar sounds.

    It tries to match up your musical taste.

    Good way to find new artists that you may never have heard of.

    Attn:: Disney Travelers.. A MUST restaurant to visit !

    When in Disney.. its worrth your time to visit “Mom’s Diner” at the MGM.

    What a riot.
    The wait staff are all your Aunt’s and Uncle’s. They make sure the kids finish their vegggies. They make sure the adults keep their elbows off the table. If you don’t excuse yourself when getting up from the table, they reseat you. They check the kids to see if they washed their hands after using the bathroom.

    Moms Diner, bringing manners and old times back.

    Oh, by the way.. the food is delicious as well.

    Easy Open DVD

    The plastic wrap around DVD’s is tough to remove. Sometimes it’s sealed tight and you can’t get fingernails in to remove the plastic.

    To remove the plastic slide the DVD on the edge of a kitchen counter. The plastic will slide off and give you better access to removing the rest.

    Save on Luggage Travel Fees

    My mother visits once a year during hurricane season. This year she arrived with just a carry-on bag containing her medicine and two days’ worth of clothing. The next day, the rest of her things arrived via U.S. mail, delivered right to our door! By sending her things through the mail, she spent only $8. If she had packed them into a suitcase and checked it through the airline, she would have been charged $50! We did spend $10 on shipping her things back in October, but we feel that we got away cheaply. We saved $82 in luggage fees!

    Traveling Discounts.. TIP

    Before You Go

    Any time you’re planning a trip to a museum, science center, zoo, etc. always check the Internet for discount tickets. Sometimes I also find discount tickets by entering the city and state name and “visitor bureau” in a web search site.
