Video Captioning Corporation

I've never been to Video Captioning Corporation.

This is the place that does video and dvd subtitle. It seems to be a very interesting job. You have to not only know the native language spoken, you have to be fluent in the language, including local idioms, into which you are translating. At VCC, the translators take every effort to not give only a literal word for word translation, but to make it easily understood by making it fit the culture into which language the film is being translated. To ensure the proper translations, the film is reviewed by at least two translators. With VCC you can have your English or Spanish film subtitled into over forty languages.

The Business of Being Born

I've never been to see The Business of Being Born.

I have heard for years the question being asked "Should most births be viewed as a natural life process or should each delivery be treated as a potential medical emergency?" This is something that many families deal with and deliberate over. Why is having a baby so expensive? Is going to the hospital necessary? Is homebirth for us? The producers Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein address this question in their film.

On December 11, 2007, at 7pm, Star Cinema Grill in Webster, TX will host a sneak preview of this film. Tickets are $25 and include an entree and beverage. There will be a panel discussion after the viewing.

Lycos Cinema

I had never been to Lycos Cinema.

I got an email saying that they are showcasing all the old favorite Saturday morning cartoons. The ones from the "good old days" like Rocky & Bullwinkle, Mr. Magoo and Felix the Cat. To enter the cinema, you need to download Adobe Flash Player 9 (you will get the prompt if you need to do this.) After watching, you can download the cartoon to post onto your blog to share with others.

Whistler Ski Resort

I've never been to Whistler Ski Resort in Whistler, BC.

This resort has many properties to rent. My husband just asked me if I want to go skiing next year. I will certainly have to mention the lovely look and wide variety of the Whistler accommodation . Many of the Whistler lodging offer ski up/ski out so you can start skiing the moment you are ready. The private hot tubs and wood burning fireplaces will be a welcome sight at the end of a beautiful day.

I will have to show all these condos to my husband and let him see which one he likes. I love the look of the Rainbow Suites 1. This cabin is located in the prime center of the village. The handmade doors and lofty ceilings are incredible. And I love the look of the cozy 14 foot high stone fireplace. This hand built luxury condo may be the highlight of a skiing vacation.

Dickens On The Strand

I've never been to Dickens On The Strand .

Each year in Galveston, TX, the first weekend after the end of hurricane season marks a special tradition, now in its 34th year. The historical district known as The Strand is turned into a replica of Victorian England, as one might read about in one of Charles Dickens' novels.

The area comes alive with carolers, entertainment, shows, choirs and machine-generated snow. Festival goers can revel in the coolness of the air (mildly cool) and celebrate another season of holidays.

Dickens on the Strand has become a favorite of locals and visitors from all over the world. The festival has been called one of the "100 Most Fun Places to Be In The World". It has also been noted as one of the "Top 100 Festivals in North America" and one of the "Top Ten Festivals in the State."

I've never been to Coupon Chief.

This just may be the place to go to finish up all my holiday shopping. This site offers coupons and codes for saving money while fulfilling my holiday list. I know my husband would love to have some new golf equipment. I can get it for him and save money shopping at GigAGolf . For my son, it would definitely be some great team paraphernalia from TeamStore . And my daughter would get the mp3 player she wants. I can save money on that with coupon codes for Best Buy . Shopping online is the way to go this Christmas. Saving money while shopping is always great! And I can do both at!

Sanderilla Thomas Bungalow

I've never been to Sanderilla Thomas Bungalow.

This bungalow is named for Sanderilla Thomas. She was a respected market woman in St. Thomas, V.I. For fifty years she sold local produce in the Market Square in downtown Charlotte Amalie. The market was closed four years ago after being destroyed by a truck. It has re-opened after a $1 million rebuilding project. Passengers on several cruise lines can visit this famous square when docking at Havensight.

Savannah City Tour

I've never been on a Savannah city tour.

I have just learned about Trusted Tours and Attractions and the great Savannah tours they offer. These city tours are perfect for any tourist or local wanting to see specific parts of the city. These tours are affordable and include docent-led tours as well as self-guided tours. Many of these tours would make an excellent way to share the city with your out of town holiday guests. By signing up for their e-newsletter, you are eligible to win four tickets for a city tour of your choice.

There is a wide variety of tours from which to choose. I think I would love to go on the Civil War tour. The Civil War is a fascinating era in American History. To be able to see some of the actual places where brother fought brother would really bring it to life. This walking tour has been a favorite for ten years. Here you can visit houses of the South's prominent generals. Discover Savannah's place in the war between the states. Learn about military strategies employed in the war.

This tour is nearly two hours in duration and will depart in light rain. Costs are $13 for adults, $7 for children ages 6-14 with kids five and under being free.

Eat As You Wish On Holland America Cruise Ships

I've never been on a cruise with Holland America.

Beginning December 18, a few Holland America cruise ships will begin the "Eat As You Wish" dining program. This means that you can choose a traditional seating at dinner or you can choose a more flexible dining option. You can make daily dinner reservations until 4pm or you can walk up anytime during dining hours. Daily dining service will be available from 5:15-9:00 pm. You must make your choice which dining plan you will implement at the time you book your cruise. In 2008, the rest of Holland America's cruise ships will begin to employ the Eat As You Wish program.

I had never been to justice (for girls) before today.

This is a great little boutique just for girls. My daughter and I went in today just to look, as we had already been through two other stores and were disgusted with the styles we found. But justice was just for girls. There were many stylish outfits, but most were not the overdone too mature look. My daughter came away with several new things, as today was buy one get one half price.

drug rehab

I've never been to drug rehab.

Because this is such an intensely personal need, it is imperative to find the right center for you or your loved one. There are many drug rehabs from which to choose, but Cliffside prides itself on individualized treatment in the highest quality facility. Because drug rehab is inherently uncomfortable, Cliffside strives to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

I've never been to Starbucks to buy anything for myself.

Yes, I have been in one before to buy gift cards for others, but never purchased anything for myself. My husband told me recently that they serve tea. I was glad to learn this as I do not drink coffee. So, when my sister recently wanted us to go to Starbucks, she told me to try the Chai Latte.

WOW!! That was some good stuff! It has a "spicy" flavor to it. It is almost like drinking gingerbread or pumpkin pie. I loved it! Too bad I only ordered the "tall", unsure if I would like the flavor or not. I will head back to order some again soon!

Stargate Cinema

Real Travel Trip Planner

I've never used the Real Travel trip planner .

This looks like an excellent site for planning my next trip. There are pages of valuable information and resources to help me choose the perfect destination, activities and find the best travel deals.

This site has a free trip planner to allow me to completely customize my next trip. I can look at what others have to say about their travels to particular locations, as well as browse through photographs others have placed on the site. I can join the free forum to chat with others who have already been to these destinations, getting the best and most accurate first hand information.

A Sample a Day

I had never been to Sample a Day before.

I was pleasantly surprised to visit this site the other night. It is a fun site filled with, yes, links to many free samples! I took the time to peruse some of these sites and even signed up for a few of the free samples. It is a great little site to check out. It looks like you can even get a free flash drive from one of the sites.

Tax Debt Relief Advice

I've never been to get tax relief debt advice.

But you know that as soon as the holidays are over, the time for tax crunching is upon us. It is sometimes very difficult to know how to scrutinize our tax returns. Searching for advice can often be stressful and expensive. But now there is an easy way to find tax advice based on the state where you live. Whether you need advice about California tax debt, debt relief advice for Texas tax debt , or New York tax relief advice, you can find all kinds of information to help you get started on organizing taxes for the upcoming season...

Pod Hotels

I've never been to a pod hotel .

These mini-sized rooms have long been a favorite of Japanese businessmen, and are now become chic with travelers in Europe and starting to gain attraction in the U.S. These smaller sized rooms are reminiscent of a cruise ship cabin, and many of them are double occupancy. Some even have suite sized bathrooms inside. These modular hotels are very sleek and stylish and offer a very affordable option to their larger sized counterparts.

Because the Dodge Charger is one of the easiest customizable cars on the market, Wood Dash makes a point to keep updated with all the latest accessories.

A Teenage Christian's Diary

I've never been to see the inside of a modern day Christian teenager's diary .

I recently found a website where Christian teens can meet to find out about living a Christian life as a teenager today. It is a hard life these teens are living. And sometimes they feel overwhelmed with no one they feel they can share their thoughts with. I learned about this online diary where teens can have an anonymous outlet to share their struggles and ideas and gain encouragement. As of yet, there are no comments, but hopefully soon this will become a safe haven for teens.

My husband loves to golf. He would love to have the time to hit the green more often. I did not know there was golf equipment put out by Mizuno, but I just found out about it. I will have to look into it for him, as he loves Mizuno running gear, I am sure he would be happy to receive Mizuno golf equipment under the tree Christmas morning.

The Sistine Chapel

I've never been to the Sistine Chapel .

Today we read about how Michelangelo spent four years laying on his back with paint dripping into his face to complete the entire 10,000 square foot area. The paintings are still absolutely amazing to look at. You can see that Michelangelo was indeed working very hard to render a perfect painting of the human body; his attention to detail is astounding. We read how he became obsessed with doing this job and even locked his help out out complete it alone. The painting of The Last Judgment took four years to restore-the same amount of time it took to paint the whole ceiling!

But with the new year fast approaching, exercising is often top of the resolution list. Now it is even easier to keep that resolution.

Chartres Cathedral

I've never been to Chartres Cathedral .

I was reading about medieval cathedrals, gargoyles and stained glass windows this week. I would love to see these at Chartres Cathedral. This cathedral stands proud still today. It is situated about fifty miles from Paris. The structures and portals are all still intact. The stained glass windows are the originals. Because of this, Chartres is virtually the only cathedral where you can get a perfect reminder of how it looked in medieval times.

New York City CityPass

I've never been on a New York City Excursion.

Right now, this may be one of the most unique ways to see the city and take in all the wonderful attractions at a fraction of the cost.

The New York CityPass offers a great way to get to see not-to-be-missed attractions. With the CityPass you get admission to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, including the new Greek and Roman galleries. You will gain entrance to the Museum of Modern Art as well as the Guggenheim Museum. You will also be able to visit the American Museum of Natural History.

In addition to these excellent museums, you can get a trip to the observatory atop the Empire State Building to see the breathtaking view of the city. Also included is a tour of the Manhattan skyline as seen from the water on a Circle Line Sightseeing Tour.

With your CityPass you also receive a map, transportation information, as well as insider tips to the best times to visit these attractions. This CityPass makes a great holiday gift, or a way to entertain out of town guests. Or maybe you are like locals in many towns who have never visited attractions in their own town. The CityPass is offered at a discounted rate saving over 50% off the price of buying each admission separately. The pass is good from December 15, 2007 through March 15, 2008.

Using the CityPass, I think I would have to overcome my fear of heights and make sure to go to the top of the Empire State Building for that view!

Civil War Re-Enactment Liendo Plantation

I've never been to the Civil War Re-enactment at Liendo Plantation.

Every year in November at the Liendo Plantation, a Civil War Re-enactment is held. I have never been able to make it on the dates it is performed, but I am sure that our whole family would enjoy it. Liendo Plantation is located in Hempstead,TX, just north of Houston. There will also be a school day with discounted rates (these are my favorites!) But we just are not going to have the time again this year...

Liendo Plantation was utilized as a Cavalry and Infantry training camp, an internment camp as well as a hospital during the War Between the States. After the war it briefly functioned as headquarters for General George Armstrong Custer.

Buying Police Gear

But my husband almost did. He was wanting a bullet proof vest for one of his youth group activities. The police gear store in our area had them, but they were too expensive for a one time use. However, if he had known about ordering Galco police gear online he might have decided to do it. There are a couple of affordable vests and all orders over $50 receive free shipping.
