Movies in America

It is amazing that the top movies for the weekend and week just past are the following.

Toy Story 2
Knight and Day.

Knight and day was surprising that it came in third and with low numbers since this thing was all over the media the past week with promotions. Maybe the problem was Tom Cruise. Some people are sick of his antics off screen.

Know someone who saw Toy Story 2 - Imax 3d and said it was pretty awesome. Said 3d was not as good as some previous shows but was still pretty good.

My thoughts for now.

Find Good Information –

This is the summer of travel.  This is the summer that many people will take up their Life in America and travel or move to another city.  What do you do when you move or travel to a strange city and you need to find something there important.

Well, lets assume that we are taking a little trip across America.  Where do you want to travel first.  Well, first lets go closer to home for our first stop which might be Tulsa, OK where we might need to find a local shop to work on our car.  That is when we pull out the internet and go some place like  There we would choose the city and then choose what we are looking for.

But lets move on in the south.  I love the travel the south and I love to find the things that I might need as our fantasy trip takes us to Birmingham, AL where we need to find some great eating places.  We search the internet again.  Guess where we search?

Moving on in our mind trip lets go north.  I am always uncomfortable when I go north but my comfort level might increase in a big city such as Chicago, IL if I have the right information.  Where do I find the best local information about Chicago.  Well, I believe that is at the website of  This gets me all of the places that I need without a lot of street time but just a little internet time.

Makes sense doesn’t it. 

Eyeglasses – Your Best Interest at Heart?

Many people in America wear eyeglasses.  Many people in America have a favorite place that they go to have their eye exams and to find out what they need in the way of prescriptions for their eyeglasses.   This is where the rub comes in.  Let me tell you about the problem as I see it.

Many of these places that examine your eyes also sell the eyeglasses, frames, lens and everything else.   Many of these places make a lot of extra money off of the sale of the eyeglasses well above that of just the examines.  Why not?  They have you as a captive audience. 

Now, it has not happened to me yet, but my understanding that the place where you get the exam is now many times reluctant to give you what is called the PD.  This is the Pupillary Distance.  This is a measurement that is necessary if you want to take your prescription to someone else such as Zenni Optical on line to get similar or the same eye wear at a discounted price.   In short, my belief is that they do not want to give up the money.

My question is that in doing this do those folks have your best interest at heart.  I believe they only have their pocket book in mind and not what is best for you.

What are your thoughts.

Sports in America

When it comes to sports in America Willy does not really get two of them. Those are tennis on tv and World Cup Soccer.

I guess I would like to ask which is more exciting and which is longer -

Outdoor Gear - in America!

Do you need outdoor gear ?   Do you need some great hunting optics?

That is my thoughts for now and please know, compensation is forthcoming for this post.

NBA Finals

Ok so we know it is fixed but tonight is absolutely the last night of the NBA finals.  After tonight one of the teams will be crowned the Champion. 

My thoughts are that it is fixed and we all should have known that it was going to seven games because they were needing the money from the television.  How good would it have been if someone would have one it in 4 straight or in 5 games.

But again, I believe it is all about the money. 

Next thought is Lakers Win.

Any other thoughts out there?

Yea – basketball in nearly over.

Arkansas Football Predictions

Ok – it is about 80 days or so until Arkansas kicks off the football.  It is the desire of this site to get a good prediction on what everyone thinks will be the regular season record for the Hogs.

So over the next month or so anyone that drops by and leaves a comment can leave what they believe the season will hold.

So Go Hogs and leave your prediction here.  If you get it right it might be that there is something in it for the winner.

Tell us your thoughts.

Attractive Mailboxes – What America Needs

Mailboxes that look good and are highly visible set the tone for the curb appeal of your home or living area.  If you have neighbors or others that see your house you want them to admire your home and t_18301_01-01-01[1] how can that be if homes do not have attractive eye catching mail boxes.

There are websites out there that can help you with this situation whether it is home mailboxes that you are looking for or if you are in the need of putting in Commercial Mailboxes.

Disaster in Arkansas

Life in America is not always easy.  Yesterday morning people out enjoying the outdoors of wonderful America, Arkansas were swept away by a devastating rain.  As night fell the rains began and people camped on the Little Missouri River - enjoying life - went to bed in their cabins, campers and tents.

By about 2:30 a.m.  the waters began to rise and from that time until about 5 a.m. the water rose from about 3 feet to about 23 feet and a wall of water swept everything away. 

At least 16 are dead and many others missing.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people involved along with their families and friends.

If the answer to any of these is yes then you want to look at putting up an arbor in your yard or garden.  Yes,  great looking and well designed garden arbors  can be something that will make your area look great and be something that will make you feel great about your special area.

So regardless of whether you are interested in wooden arbors or arbors designed of other material, you just need to know that when you get the right design that you want for the right area, it will be a great asset to your property and something that you will enjoy for years to come.

This is something that I have wanted in my yard for ever and am giving great thought to getting as I write this entry.

Sports in America

There are basically three sports that are going on right now that are big time in America.  What are these three you ask.  Well I am talking about NBA Basketball which seems to last forever, NHL which seems to be something that I am not sure why anyone watch and College Baseball which I am not sure why it goes on so far past the time that college is out.  

The question is - which one is most popular.  Again, I do not watch NBA basketball or NHL and do not understand what people see in either of those sports.

On the other hand, I am not a baseball fan either, but I enjoy almost anything that has the Arkansas Razorbacks in it.  So I try to keep up with Arkansas Razorback Baseball.

Which one of the above do you watch.
