I have told you about my great aunt before up in Canada. Well she is apparently having problems with her house again. I really wish we could get her to sell that old monstrosity and move to the states where we can help her. she is very stubborn though and still wants to live in her family home. In any case, the roof is leaking. I need to search out a Montreal roofing company to come and see about fixing the problem. I should probably call more than one to have them give estimates on the job, but I know my Aunt will just take the first one and not even bother with the rest.
It shouldn’t take long to locate a couvreur de toit montréal to help her. She has a couple of neighbors who help look after her and they might know of a reputable one that can take care of it. Honre’ next door will see to the guys when the show up, so they don’t try to take advantage of a little old lady. You have to be careful you know. I will call him in an hour or so since I know his schedule and he is not at home in the mornings. Anyway, gotta run. Later !

I am usually up with the sun, but this morning I didn’t get up until nine am. I had the most difficult time falling asleep last night and it was telling this morning. I haven’t gotten anything done except to make coffee and have a shower. Now it is time to get to work and accomplish a few things today. I have work on here to do plus a ton of laundry. I have had a couple of house guests while the kids are away they have been monopolizing my washer and dryer for eight days now. Thankfully they are leaving tomorrow. I love em, but I will be glad to see them go. So now…time to get to work. Later Gators !

Checking accounts have become more of a curse than a blessing. Customers were once able to store their liquid money into a free checking account without a second thought to having to spend anything more than the cost of writing a check. Now banks are attaching usage and storage fees to checking accounts, as well as charges for minimum balances that must be maintained or exceeded. Prepaid cards like those offered on Kaiku.com have been gaining in popularity because they are virtually without fees or the fees that do exist are much lower than those required by many banks today for checking accounts. The ease of use, in addition to being easily bought at many retailers, has also made them even more popular. The Visa logo that is displayed on many cards makes them accepted at most establishments that accept credit and debit cards. Customers also feel safer using them to purchase products online since they can limit the amount of money to one card without worrying if there is an error or fraudulent action taken against the card that can wipe out their checking account. Many customers who keep their checking accounts for purposes that require checks still opt to use prepaid cards for their ease of use, protection, and direct deposit options. Those that benefit the most are those customers who can’t or don’t have checking account access.

While the kids are on vacation, I decided to redo the boys bedroom. I have even got them a new set of bunk beds. The littlest guy is going to flip when he gets home and I am not sure it will be in a good way. He was very attached to his VW shaped car bed, but is getting too old for it. I wanted to make for more space in their room for them, and I can’t wait to see what they think. I did save the plastic part of the little guys bed though and out it outside for him to play in. He should be okay with that.
Their new beds

We had to buy a couple of new cam levers to lock down the seats on the jet ski’s. When you open the cam levers, the seat goes up and you can access the engines. However, the ones on our jet ski’s were getting loose from being used as well as the vibration of the motor and jarring of the machine when riding over waves. This should effectively stop the seats from coming loose or rattling.
