Once you've finished your training it's time to head out and find the job you want. Sometimes it's all about knowing where to look and how to market yourself to find the job you would like.

Companies like "Great Clips", "Regis", "JC Penny Salons" and "Life Spa" to name a few use this resource to find their next great stylist.

You lookin' at me?

All this and brains too? I'm not so sure sometimes you can get some interesting shots when no one is looking. I got this picture of Trinity when she was least expecting it. She is always beautiful and has spent the summer at dance camp having a lot of fun. She is going to spend the next couple of weeks getting rested up and getting ready to go back to dance lessons.

Nascar Controversy

I was surprised by the announcement today that Nascar would be placing Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch on Probation for the next 6 weeks. Every time some of the drivers show some emotion and inject some excitement into a race the Nascar Brass come down on them and basically sends the message to everyone not to do anything to bring interest to the sport. What we saw basically was them venting a little frustration in the end what harm was caused accept to the guys back at the shop whom had to fix the cars?

A buggy Experience

When camping last weekend we found many different kinds of experiences at our new camp ground. We were able to swim in a lake which the kids loved because there was no jelly fish around. The camp ground had a movie screen so we could watch movies with the kids each night. When we were packing up the boys were entertained by the caterpillars that were found on our tent and trees. They got a collection of them built up and carried them around on their arms and hands

Lingerie Dreams


After a busy day of work I got home and found a nice supper all ready for me, my wife has her mother visiting with us for a couple of days and they decided they wanted to go out shopping on a girls night for "underwear". Now I was thinking they may actually be going shopping for some Lingerie, you may ask why I went there first, well they have both been losing a lot of weight and are feeling great about themselves. Tighter tops and even a bikini(wife) have started to pop up in their wardrobes . As they were going out the door I told my wife to get some sexy underwear thinking maybe she would surprise me with some Designer Lingerie, not for me to wear, for her and for me to enjoy. Some of the favorite designers we have seen include the Freya brand. Freya is full of fun designs for everyone and comes in a variety of fashion colors and have a fantastic fit. There are so many fantastic choices in the boutique ofFreya Lingerie it's hard to pick a favorite but I like the "LOLA PLUNGE". Lingerie can be beautiful for everyone Fayreform is designed specifically for larger-cup ladies who want to express themselves with vibrant colors with fashionable designs that are designed for romance. Fayreform Lingerie is brought to Boudiche from New Zealand is is one of their boutique's best selling brands. Now back to the shopping night, I'm not sure how it went but they brought home bags of socks and underwear but there was some giggling going on as they were showing me all their purchases so as normal I'm not sure what was going on....go with the flow and see what surprises await me I suppose.

New Tires

Well this is a month I dread, we have a lot of things that all hit in the same month and from a budget point of view it makes it hard. The kids are going back to school so we need to get the supplies, clothes and of course the fees. The oil bill is due, we have payments every month but have to pay off the balance for the year this month. The van's inspection is up this month which means I have to get new tires for sure and there could be some other things too. Next month we will get focused on the upcoming Christmas season....less than 5 months away.

Hard Penalty for Gibbs Team

I was disturbed by the recent developments in Nascar where the Gibbs nationwide teams for Joey Logano and Tony Stewart where caught decieving the Nascar folks by placing magnets under there accelerator peddle to deceive the dyno tests post race. There is a couple of issues I have with this first being why is Nascar limiting the Engines in the Gibbs camp to begin with if those teams can build a better engine than everyone else within the limits and rules set by Nascar than they should be allowed to do it, if they dominate the races than you know what the other teams need to work harder to catch up. It is a shame that they felt they had to deceive the tests, it is aweful to be the best in Nascar isn't it, we should penalize and hamper the teams that can do the most within the rule book. If you can build a better car you should be able to run it. Why do you thing Petty or Earnhardt were so good for so long, yes good drivers but they also had the best of the best equipment that was out there.

Game Night

When I was a youngster going through school I can remember the great times we had playing games like bingo, 7up etc on Friday afternoons. We would all gather around after lunch and play the games the lucky winners would get prizes to take home it was a lot of fun. We decided that we should have a tradition like that in our home and we now spend Friday nights home playing games with our kids. We set up for the evening having a fun supper with all the kids favorite meals, usually taco's or nacho chips when we are done we move onto game choice and usually during our game we will have some snacks to add to the fun. The kids are getting into the DVD games like the scene it titles and Disney Bingo, the kids enjoy the disney themed games because they recognize the characters from their favorite movies. Which generally moves us to the final stage of the night which is movie time, this usually ends the night as our younger kids fall asleep as they are cuddling with us on the couch. The Bingo game is new and we found it on and at a great price.

Christmas Shopping Early

We made a decision to start shopping for Christmas presents early this year, we began by getting gifts for all the neices and nephews first and than began working on our own kids. It is great to have a head start on the shopping because it can get stressful if we leave it all to the last minute both time wise and money wise.

Vehicle shopping

I have been considering getting a second vehical so we don't have to try and juggle all our activities with one van. With Back to school coming up soon it also means all the kids sports and dance will be starting soon too. My wife is planning on going back to work in the fall also which will make it more interesting than usual around here. I was looking into Ford Mustang Faqs, what better vehical to have than the Mustang one of the most storied vehicals in the automotive industry. The limited edition Mustang BlackJack really caught my eye but after I saw the price tag and discussed with my wife she brought me back to reality so I may have to re-think my shopping plans.

Renovation Project 2

I have taken on an extra job so to speak helping a friend of mine from work renovate a giant old turn of the century home. We have been spending our free time the last couple of months working on gutting this old place. Only now do I think we are making any progress, there is a lot of work yet to be done but we are almost past the demolition mode and that will be a huge feeling of accomplishment.

Puppy Days

We have our new puppy and she has done well with us during our vacation, we are looking forward to getting her home and working on here house training. She is doing well on the road and has only had a couple of accidents while we have been on vacation. It will be nice to have this behind us so we can get our house back in order as we have had to close off areas to ensure she doesn't have too much space to wonder around.

Paint Ballin'

My son recently began playing the game paintball with his friends at a local paint ball facility. He has basically become hooked on this game and is really beginning to out grow the equipment he has been borrowing from his friends. He has begun shopping for new equipment to get up to the level of his buddies. We have started looking for equipment from many great manufactures like tippmann, he's currently looking for a new paintball gun and of course lot's of ammo. Shopping online has become a great alternative for us as provides great shipping rates and an easy to use website.

Olympic Games

Are you interested in the Olympic Games that started this morning? The opening ceremony was an exciting show and I will find myself watching some of the events as they come up. I usually watch the pool, swimming type events and the sprints but other than that I probably won't watch any more of the events.

Wedding Planner

It is one of the most exciting and significant events in your life, with any luck it is a once in a lifetime event but that takes work for sure. Once the question has been popped and the proposal accepted it is on to the next phase, the planning of the big day. So many people are time starved today and need to find assistance in planning their weddings, more and more people are turning online to get the assistance they need. You can plan the perfect wedding of your dreams right down to the Wedding Gifts and mints on the tables for the added touch.

To text or not to text

What is this new fee on texting for bell and telus, I can't believe they would do this to customers. It isn't fair to be charged for incoming text messages, as you can't control how many you get on a regular basis. I can understand being charged for sending a message as this is a choice you make. It appears as the government isn't going to step in and stop this program from coming into effect.

2X concentrated

Have you noticed a differance in the laundry aisle of your local store lately, all the laundry products are now marketed as being 2X more concentrated. It is said this was done to reduce the enviromental impact and produce less waste. Let's be realistic if companies were really interested in the environment they would have done this package change many years ago. The real route to this raising oil costs, which is a major ingrediant in the process of making plastic bottles so it is in the bottom line best interest for the companies to use less plastic with the raising cost of oil.

My sleeping beauties

Here's a shot I caught of my two sleeping beauties one morning in the tent while they were catching a few extra winks of sleep, this was a typical morning thing after the puppy would wake up around 6am we would let here crawl into bed with us so she wouldn't wine and wake up the kids. She would usually roam around the bed for a couple of minutes and then drown us with sloober and finally find a comfy spot to go back to sleep.

The songbirds

We had a treat at the campground on a campfire night we had a concert from my sister in law on guitar and daughter on vocals, they gave us a few songs they had worked on through the day. Tear drops on my guitar was the biggest hit of the night and they did a good job, there was sore fingers and a hoarse throat the next morning but it was a great show.

The Honeymoon

The one big regret my wife and I had from our wedding is that we didn't take a proper honeymoon. We always said that we would at some time catch up on this and make up for it. Having just celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary many things have gotten in the way but we are starting to plan for the next couple of years to take a trip to somewhere hot and are looking at cancun hotels with all the finest accomadation features and activities to keep us entertained. We are looking forward to some fine dining and romantic adventures. We have many years to make up for and now with the kids getting older it is easier for us now to leave them with someone else for a week or two.

The tickle monster attacks

Blake is a funny little fella, he and I have a monster thing between us, he will tell me what type of monster he will want me to be and it's up to me to figure out how to make it work, he might want the giant monster which means I need to pick him up, and growl or the piggy monster which means I have to pretend to eat him, his chicken wings, pork ribs whatever we can think of. I was lucky this day he only wanted the tickle monster and I got him good.

The Vacation Home

Here is our vacation home tent, it's big which is good for us when our main vacation trip is a week long trip to the beach with the 6 of us, you need room to move, sleep and hang out if it rains. I enjoy the over-all height it's not just tall in the middle but all around so you can stand up anywhere.

A Trip to Disney

We have been deliberating a trip for the family, other than my wife none of us have made a trip down to Disney world yet, we have been talking about it for a few months and have decided that we are going to be saving our pennies to get Disney tickets for the family to travel down, we are working on a goal of 2 years from now. I can only imagine the pure size of Disney, we are planning on a 2 week trip just to get in all the attractions. The kids love water parks, rides and I think we will enjoy the theatre attractions. The kids are just about the right ages for the big trip. Look out Donald, Mickey and company the kids are getting excited and ready to attack

Rain Tires for Nascar

AT this past weekends Nascar event at Montreal something I didn't think I would see actually happened, it rained and they pulled the cars onto pit lane and outfitted them with rain tires, wipers and brake lights. It was great to get the race in without the lenghty rain delays that normally occur when they have to wait out the rain and dry the track. Will this program transfer to the Sprint Cup events in the near future?

Anniversary Wish

Once upon a time

Came a realization so clear

Almost like a light switching on

You were for me and I for you

From that day on,

Never for a moment

Have I questioned that decision

Through good days, through bad days

Every day of every Season of every Year

Through many moves we have traveled

You’ve been with me every step of the way

Again a realization of happiness

After avoiding what was right before our eyes

Every challenge makes us stronger,

Thank you for all the days.
