I like millions of other like me here in the U.S. have the weight loss resolution. I have been working on getting healthier for a while now and I have had my ups and downs. Tell me if I'm crazy but doesn't seem like there are three times as many food commercials now then any other time of the year? It's like all the fast food companies and producers of junk food have all gotten together and said "Hey we have a dieting crisis here people ...we can't let these millions of consumers out from under our junk food grip! What can we do to stop the exodus from our tasty fattening goodies to the healthy fruits and veggies they are starting to buy? I know massive advertising. We will bombard the with images of all the things they are giving up .... every crunchy, cheesy, chewy, sweet and salty goodie on every channel all the time! We will have them dumping those resolutions in no time at all mwahahahahahaha!!!"
Is it just me or what?

|With these windows you could feel the cold just rushing in!|
|They had a weird second frame to put in Plexiglas covers in using magnets to hold it in place.|
They didn't even have all of the covers so we couldn't cover up these energy wasters.
|All the wood cross pieces blocked the light and cut down on the view.|
|The rail on the old door was bent in places it probably wouldn't have take much to break in through it.|
|Isn't my new door beautiful?|
|New windows let in so much more light and its much easier to see out!|

I've been having some fun with this site for the past couple weeks. Its called Listia and its like a combination of E-Bay and Freecycle. It's an auction site that uses credits to bid for things other people are looking to get rid of.
There are plenty of things to do to get free credits from watching videos, doing surveys and of course posting auctions of things that have been cluttering up your home but are in good shape and would be a shame to throw away. Then you turn around and bid for things you want Everything from gardening supplies and video games to clothes and sporting goods. So far I've won three times
