From the South

Guest post of the week by Brittany Booker

Being from the south meant when the opportunity came to take over this goat farm I jumped on it. Sure I’d lived in Manhattan for years but I was really itching to do something good for the soul, to work with my hands and not look back. So anyway, here I am raising goats and looking up farmers markets to sell my meat and cheese on my satellitestarinternet.com internet connection – it’s a totally different life out here than the one I was living. I think it’s amazing being part of something bigger than just a company and I love that I get to do something tangible and that I’m tired at the end of the day. Not many of my friends from New York can relate to this side of me but that’s okay – they’re there for a different part of me, the city side, and I have farmer friends who I can talk to about this kind of stuff. The best part is that I’ve got fresh goat cheese around anytime I want it now!


Valentine's Day Freebie Just for Fun

Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Along with your more typical VDay gifts -- flowers, chocolate, perfume, fancy meals, diamond jewelry, and so on -- you can treat your sweetie to a modern-day fave such as the Kindle and Kindle books or accessories.

But you can also do something that won't cost you but a tiny bit of time. You can learn how to give her Valentine's greetings in a different language. If you have a Latin love, learn how to say Happy Valentine's Day in Spanish (you might want to learn Spanish anyway). Or if you just want to sound sexy, try Happy Valentine's Day in French. Ooh-la-la. Or just for fun, you can tell your sweetie Happy Valentine's Day in Japanese. (And it's the easiest of all!)

If this little exercise gives you the bug, language learning software is arguably the fastest, most convenient way to teach yourself a new language.

Red Carpet style watch

Contributed by Johnny Graves

January kicks off the awards season for all of television and movies. It is my second favorite time of the year for television with the first being sweeps week in September when all of the new shows come on and all of the awesome fall season shows begin. So this year we went tohttp://www.expertsatellite.com/ to get set up with a whole new satellite television connection and I am really glad we did it when we did because it is just in time for the awards show to start coming on. It is my favorite when they film and interview live from the red carpet. I love to see the celebrities stepping out of their limos with their elaborate evening gowns and sky high heels. The men are usually not too bad to look at either. All of them I’m sure will be dressed in their Tom Ford tuxedoes as usual. I love to watch my girl Guiliana Rancic talk to all of the stars as if they are best friends. Maybe they are best friends in real life.
