Montego Bay

I've never been to Montego Bay.

It's the first stop on our upcoming cruise itinerary. It looks beautiful!! The water looks a gorgeous blue and the beaches sound perfect. There are many things to choose from for our day long stop there. Plantations, hiking, water falls, water sports, snorkeling, zip line, or just relaxing on the beach.

That I'd like to see.

Olympics Opening Ceremonies

I've never been to an Olympics Opening Ceremonies.

I did stay up late watching the rebroadcast of this year's opening ceremony. Most of the show was fun to watch. I particularly liked the storybook characters and the olympic cauldron. I did not like the "digital age" part, though I did learn something from it! One thing I always find humorous is how all the athletes, even the professional ones, have their cell phones out taking photos and videos! I hope their cell batteries were fully charged so they didn't miss a thing! I bet those are photos and videos they will keep forever!

I've never been to the Olympics.

Well, at least not out of this country!! I have the privilege and honor of saying that I have actually attended some Olympic events right here in our own country. In 1984 our parents took us on a road trip to California to see the games in Los Angeles! It's pretty cool to say that I've been to the Olympics. We got to see women's basketball and men's handball. We had a nice trip leaving us with many memories and a great conversation topic. We were supposed to go to the Olympics again in 1996 in Atlanta but it did not work out that time. Maybe one day we will get to see another Olympic games!

wall safe

I've never been to purchase a wall safe.

I had never really even thought about it. But today I saw the "coolest home wall safe ever"! It is just like the movies. It is a safe mounted in the wall covered by artwork and even controlled remotely.  But it is not just for movie stars or the elite. A wall safe can protect whatever valuables you have right at home-guns, documents, jewelry- eliminating the need to rent a safe deposit box.

My Fitness Pal

I've never been to My Fitness Pal.

I just read about this site, which apparently also includes a free app for your smart phone. This site allows you to log in exercise and calories to see your daily balance and help reach your fitness and weight goals by letting you see where you are at and how to better balance the intake/output of calories.

Alaskan Cruise

I've never been on an Alaskan cruise.

It seems to be all the rage right now. There are lots of people I know who have gone, and all have loved it. The glaciers and icebergs are amazing. Seeing the whales is breathtaking. And the villages and towns visited are interesting. It seems Alasaka is becoming a hot spot. One that I hope to one day visit!

That I'd like to see.


I've never been to trial.

I had jury duty last week but I was thankful that I wasn't picked for any jury! I did wonder though if it would be an interesting experience. While I would hate to be on a jury for serious crimes against people, there are some that I might find interesting. For example, I did not even know about the suits involving errors and omissions. This mostly affects small technology business, but seems like it would be something interesting to learn about. And would not involve a lot of heart wrenching ideas to deal with. So if I ever am chosen for a jury, I hope it is for something interesting and not involving hurt people.

Q Cuts

I've never been to Q Cuts. I just learned today that this place gives $15 cuts and that their is a guy there who cuts some of my friends' hair regularly. When I heard this price and know that these girls' hair always looks good, I know that I will be giving this place a try soon! That I'd like to see.

Ancient Warrior Cigars

I've never been to Dominican Republic, Honduras, Nicaragua, or Brazil. But apparently with the ancient warrior gurkha cigars, one can get a taste of each of these places. The blend of tobaccos, binder and wrapper are said to give a spicy, toasty flavor. The finish is stated to be embellished by caramel and cedar. The description gives it a very exotic feel. That I'd like to see.


I've never been to Belize. It's one of the options on our list of places to visit this year; it's my husband's top choice! I hear it is gorgeous, with lots of beach activities including snorkeling and scuba diving. And with the Blue Hole, it is said to have lots of beauty to take in while diving. There are the Mayan temples to tour. There is said to be 500 different bird species, making this a birder's paradise. And the rainforest, music, and chocolate.... That I'd like to see.

hip hop clothes

I've never been to buy hip hop clothes. Although as I browsed today through a site, I found that most of these items called "hip hop" are pretty standard teen attire. Nothing too really crazy there. And this site has lots to choose from: back packs, belts, computer accessories, hats, shoes, skate decks as well as clothes. If you have a teen, it might be something you would see him/her wearing, and just not realized it was considered "hip hop". I guess I am ok with some of the styles considered "hip hop", as long as no one has their "pants on the ground"! That I'd like to see.
