These are some of my favorite places to go online. If you like them, great. If you don't, too bad. I like them and if you're a raving-lunatic-liberal (yes, that should be all one word, shouldn't it?) you probably won't. Well, maybe you'll like the Trikke and the Fluidity pages. They're good stuff for both sides of the isle.
Remember: Just because the businesses are listed here that does NOT mean they endorse my politics. It does NOT mean they agree with anything at all I say, believe, want, or do. It means simply that I like the product/service. These businesses/services do NOT ENDORSE this website.

Breast Cancer and Women's Health Issues
Inflammatory Breast Cancer is a rare, but aggressive type of cancer that shows up as a bug bite, or swelling, hotness or itchiness (or a combination of these, as well as other symptoms) and it does not have any lumps associated with it. If you have this kind of breast cancer, doing a breast self-exam will do no good in finding it; an MRI or biopsy will be the only true tests. Please check out the website above and watch this video to see if you should be concerned.
Breast Cancer info on the "usual" breast cancers that come with the lump you can find with self-exams, mammograms, etc. Do not forget to check monthly and do not forget to be aware of the kinds of cancer above.
Pro-Animal and Anti-Animal
A rather inflammatory heading? It makes you think, does it not? Well, read the information below from the different animal organizations and see if you get the same reaction from their own statements on killing ("euthanizing") animals that I got by reading their various positions. It may make you rethink which animal organization you support.
Note: If you want more information on PETA (yeah, right: "Ethical") go to this website and read their revealing story.
Are these the kinds of animal groups you want to support? Groups that think that it's kinder to kill an animal -- even "humanely" -- than to allow it to live and make its own way? Personally, I think that's an ugly, cruel, hateful idea: the idea that killing an animal is better than letting it live. The only time killing an animal is better than letting the animal live is when the animal is too ill or too injured to save it. My dog, Buster, was about seventeen years old when we had to have him put down. He had cataracts in both eyes and was practically blind, he had very few teeth left and had difficulty eating, had digestive problems, and had some good days still. But he also had arthritis in his spine and joints but when it got to the point that I saw him limping on three of his four legs and I said that was enough. He couldn't go on to make us feel better. But when he was healthy, not in pain, to suggest that because he was a stray my mom found roaming the streets of her hometown and because of that, he should be put down, is hateful. I support only organizations I believe are "Low Kill" organizations. I was told by the clinic workers at the SPCA in Titusville (455 Cheney Hwy.: S.R. 50 at Sisson Rd) that they keep the animals until they can be adopted unless they are too sick to cure, in which case they will be put down. That's who I support: an organization I have been told was willing to keep the animal for as long as it takes. And the newsletter of the Titusville SPCA supports that idea.
Computer and Internet Help
A great place to find computer help and info: Kim Komando's site. You want to secure your internet connection with firewalls, virus protection, etc.? Go there. You'll find great recommendations and all kinds of programs; some you pay for, some are free. Whichever, she tests it and finds the best.
One of my favorite places to go find great software? Tucows.com! I found my HTMLKit from Chami there and I highly recommend it. Please be aware that Tucows tries to keep any software out of its listings that may have a detrimental effect on your computer and files are screened. But always consider the possibilities.
If you can't find it at Tucows.com, go to CNet and click on their "Download" tab. You can find system-specific downloads and they're a safe site to download from.
And speaking of Chami, I do highly recommend their HTMLKit. It is so easy to use that almost anyone can create a website and keep it updated and make it look how they want it to look with a little bit of knowledge. Goodness knows I had a book and HTMLKit to do the anti-incorporation pages when I first started. I haven't improved that much in my knowledge of web programming, but I think I have learned to apply my knowledge more efficiently. And, I still have books (I love books!).
We LOVE Duck Dynasty, too! It's the story of a Christian family whose business is making Duck Commander duck and deer calls. It's hysterical! It makes me laugh until I cry almost every episode. Don't watch more than a few episodes at a time if you don't want to have a side-ache and sore facial cheeks from laughing and smiling so much. I love this show!

You'll find children's books there, too! Amazing range and fun to see. You may have some books that are "seconds", but even on those that aren't the price is really good.
Celebrity Cruises, our favorite cruise line. They are spectacular! I've cruised on their ships five times now and each time I have more good things to say about the company. We have gone to most of the Caribbean and we have gone to Alaska on Celebrity's two week repositioning cruise. Talk about a spactacular vacation! If you ever get the chance, go on a cruise; and to make sure you enjoy it, get a room with a balcony. You'll only regret it if you suffer from seasickness.
HealthGrades.com: Get information on your physician, surgeon and/or hospital, including to which medical colleges your doctor went, how your hospital rates when it comes to costs, length of stay, complications, etc. It's a good site to get info.
If you ever go to St. Augustine get a cupcake at Luli's Cupcakes. Luli's does NOT endorse my website, my politics or anything else I stand for, but I endorse their cupcakes! I have tried many of their delicious combos, as of this date, most recently their Strawberry Chocolate cupcake with Blueberry Frosting. YUMMM! Try any of their cupcakes and you'll be going to St. Augustine more often! You can order from their website. Try them and you'll be ordering often. Budget for it.
Have foot problems? I highly recommend Dr. David Simonson of Brevard Foot and Ankle. He treated my foot and he's not just a nice guy, he's a great doctor and I only had to get two shots in my foot and he fixed it. Hurray! Like I said, if you have a foot problem -- besides it being in mouth -- go see Dr. Simonson. He'll get you walking!
The best dentist in Brevard? Go see Dr. Thomas Lunstrum of Cocoa Village Dentistry. He's an excellent dentist, a nice guy and he's got a great staff. He's also a Veteran who served in either Afghanistan or Iraq, oI don't remember which, so you'll be dealing with someone who has served you in another way already! He's been my dentist since he bought the practice. I highly recommend him!
We liked their service so much, we used them twice! Personal Touch Countertops did both our kitchen countertop last year, and our master bathroom countertop (both with matching windowsill) five years ago. They were so sweet when they did our master bathroom countertop that when we told them we had ordered the hall bathroom marble countertop and needed it cut a little to fit, they offered to take it with them cut it for free! They not only did that, but they also rounded the edges of the countertop for us without us asking them! They are a great company and seem to really care about the work they do. I highly recommend them!
Remember: Anyone who does not give you a wake-up call when they see you being stupid, self-destructive, or both, just plain doesn't care about you. It's those of us who do wake you up who care.
