Flooding in Roanoke Rapids, NC

9th Street







  We were fine out in the country where we live but the city was not so lucky with large area flooded and one street with a huge section washed away.  Also the interstate between exit 171 where the big theater is and the 173 main Roanoke Rapids exit was closed to north and southbound traffic causing massive rerouting of traffic down highway 301 and highway 903 which is the road I live on so we saw never ending traffic go by our house.  Haven't seen anything like this since the enormous flood in Rocky Mount back in 1999.

Free Movies

   How many of you like the word "FREE"? I sure do and I also like a good movie. Now you are just a click away from seeing a full length movie right there on your computer and there is a long list of movies available.  Hurry on over to this address and start having fun.

  A side note, thanks to good old Fedex I will be getting a late start to work on monday since my delivery of materials needed for the program did not arrive as planned on Friday. Hope you all have a fabulous Sunday and a great week ahead.

Too Good Not To Blog About

  Believe it or not, I'm back!!!  Ran into some good stuff this week and shared it on facebook but had to make sure all my friends had the benefit of knowing as well

  Let's start with readers.  If you happen to own a Kindle like I do there is a web site where you can go and select books from every category I know of, click on the book and it will take you to Amazon and the price for the download to your Kindle is ($.00). That's right free. Just go to this address and have fun like I did ordering 4 book that were into my Kindle in less than 2 minutes. 

  OK, on to the next neat site. I have done videos in the past and I would take them on my camera and take an hour or more uploading them which was a pain. All you have to do is go to this web site and you can if you have a web cam with a mic do an instant video with sound and sent it an email address for free. OK, it is only for 14 days free and then you have to spend some money but at least I had some fun and hope you will too.

  There was a couple more that I have not tried but you may want to when you get a chance.  Go here to send free faxes over your computer.  And you can go here to share albums of pictures easily.

  I am still doing great and will be starting a new part time job on Monday.  I'll be working for a company that does retail assignments for Walgreen Drug Stores in 3 local cities. So I will be getting out of the house and that will feel good but I am sure it will not make Rocky and Soffie happy at all. Have a great weekend everyone.
