Kissimmee Vacation Time

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Kissimmee Tourism. All opinions are 100% mine.

We are excited that it is officially changed to summer and we are thinking Florida, this year we are going to visit Kissimmee the Heart of Florida. The reason is simple it is close to Orlando, so we can go to Disney but still hit the beaches. We have never stayed in Kissimmee before but we have heard that it is a great place to let you enjoy all of Florida vacation. It will be nice to have a normal setting to explore quaint downtowns in Kissimmee, St. Cloud, and Celebration. We are looking forward to Boutiques, the eclectic shops, and the restaurants. We want to make sure we take sometime to enjoy the lakes as our trips to Florida are always jammed packed tourist centers, Disney, Universal, SeaWorld, and Busch Gardens. It will be nice to be able to take a couple of days and just hang out and enjoy all that Kissimmee has to offer. We are also thinking we would like to stay in a vacation home as opposed to chain hotel. The ability to cook our own meals and sleep in separate bedroom from the kids is a big seller. If you are thinking about a hotel there are great last minute deals if you want to go that route. We had seen deals for as low as $49 a night. We made sure to get our 2010 Kissimmee Visitor’s Guide and are so ready to go.

Elections are Fun Again

Another Wednesday morning after primary elections and it is all still good. In South Carolina Republicans nominated a tea party-backed state Rep. Nikki Haley for a run for governor as another incumbent went down hard as the state’s old-boy network watched Rep. Gresham Barrett, a four-term congressional representative fall way short. The final vote was 65-35 in the landslide for the tea party and Haley. South Carolina Republicans also nominated Tim Scott who beat Paul Thurmond, the son of the late U.S. senator Strom Thurmond. The final vote here was even larger at 68-32 with all precincts counted. Six-term Republican Rep. Bob Inglis fell to prosecutor Trey Gowdy, this is the fifth House or Senate incumbent to fall. In North Carolina, Elaine Marshall won the Democratic nomination beating former Army prosecutor Cal Cunningham. This must sting the Democratic Party leaders in Washington that recruited Cunningham at they also spent more than $100,000 on his campaign. Utah Republicans chose attorney Mike Lee as a successor to loser Senator Bob Bennett. In Mississippi, voters chose Republican Bill Marcy to challenge Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson. The song continues and it does not matter Democrat or Republican incumbency and Washington insiders are going down and it feels good.

McChrystal, Media Bias, Outrage

Before we start we think McChrystal should resign or be fired. The Commander and Chief cannot have insubordination in the field from his highest-ranking general in the theatre. We also think this was more a suicide then a revolt. General McChrystal knows he did not get enough troops, he knows the cut of date approaches, and the administration was going to blame him for why Afghanistan is no better today than nine years ago. The media is so over the top on this one when General Wesley Clark jumped on President Bush over Iraq policy he was a media darling, truth to power they said. When it is their messiah getting the shaft, they call for swift punishment and immediate removal. Clark was not in the field but the comments are the same. We think this is a suicide because what General even talks to Rolling Stone magazine. Speaking of that, when was the last time anyone mentioned Rolling Stone and being relevant? The truth is the General and his staff did not say anything every military person in the filed or stateside will tell you. The rules of engagement in Afghanistan are murky and it is a no win.

Who are you thinking about?

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of 1-800-Flowers. All opinions are 100% mine.Is there a better way to surprise someone you love then sending them flowers? If you find yourself thinking about a certain someone several times a day, then they are a perfect candidate for flower delivery. We are not even talking about a spouse or significant other. This person could be a past love or friend that slipped out of your life. You could surprise a best friend or even a secret crush. If you want to score major points with your spouse or significant other there is no better way then sending flowers to them at their work place or somewhere when they are outside the home. But is does not matter whomever it is just a nice gesture to let them know that you are thinking of them. A bouquet from 1-800-Flowers is just the thing to do the trick! We love to send flowers to our spouse at work because all her friends and coworkers see them. She then posts it up to Facebook with a photo it is a huge score. The best thing is we like to send flowers for non reason days just to get that reaction. Anyone can give flowers on Valentine Day, Birthday or an Anniversary. We love the reason to give flowers is because you just wanted to do something nice and unexpected. We think it is a great chance for you to take advantage of the great deals at 1800flowers and surprise someone yourself today.

Alexis Dziena blazing the big screen

Alexis Dziena10

This week we are highlighting another newcomer to the list. Alexis Gabbriel Dziena who was born July 8, 1984 in New York City. During her high school years she attended classes at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. We picked her because we saw her over the weekend in When in Rome. We have been a fan of her work in the sixth season of Entourage as Ashley and as Tris in Nick and Norah. Alexis made her acting debut on television in the show Witchblade. She has always played a hottie with a passion for sex. Her first major role was in the She’s Too Young, as sexually active teenager. As a 21 year old she appeared fully nude in the movie Broken Flowers. She was part of a couple swap as Heather, in the film Sex and Breakfast. We here she is also a pretty good drummer. She makes the list because she just melts the screen when she is on it. She is a ball of sexual energy and every time you see her on camera she is enticing. She is turning 26 in a couple of weeks and the next four years should see her star shine as her roles will become more mature and we are confident in the prediction she will climb the charts as the years go by.

It is making jobs, Mr President, not paying for not working

The President who told a graduating class not to blame others and take responsibility, proves again do what I say not what I do. President Barack Obama on Saturday blamed the Republicans for making life harder for the unemployed by the rejection of a bill in the Senate that would have provided more money for the long-term unemployed, aid for strapped state governments and the renewal of popular tax breaks for businesses and individuals. The proble3m is the answer is not giving out more government money it to create new jobs. This of course stops and starts right at the President’s desk. This president loves to blame others and has never taken account that he has been President now for 516 days and at some point everything is his problem. President Truman understood this because he said the buck stops here. Going back to the failed bill for a moment there are only 41 Republican senators the bill failed in a 56-40 vote, the math alone says he cannot even democrats on board. That does not stop the President Obama blame machine from deflecting the fact that his party was not on board. We do not care about this bill the problem is not paying out more out of work benefits, it is creating jobs. There is only one person to blame for unemployment staying around 10% the president does not have a plan to get American back to work, paying taxes into the system, to help government have more money, workers paying into social security, less people needing unemployment benefits, and making American self supportive.

Government cannot fix things

We sat and watched for over a week as partisan bickering in the Senate on what to do for the poor doctors and Medicare. They finally gave out enough deals and passed the legislation to spare doctors a 21 percent cut in Medicare payments which we have been hearing about for months. Government is broken because no sooner was the bill passed Medicare announced it would begin processing claims it has already received for June at the lower rate. This means doctors that bill under Medicare’s physician fee schedule will now have to resubmit their claims if they want to be paid, let us just double the effort for both for the providers and for the taxpayers to pay. Medicare is a giant health care program for 46 million elderly and disabled people. The bill to hold of the Medicare billings of a 21 percent cut in payments expired May 31. Medicare had been holding off on processing claims in the hopes lawmakers would act. The bill passed by the Senate only delays the cuts until the end of November, you know after congressional elections. The AMA says continuing financial uncertainty may lead some doctors to stop taking new Medicare patients, and others may drop out of the program altogether. So the question for these last couple days of summer after the winter of Healthcare Reform, how can any sane person think this government can run any program efficiently and better then the private for profit business? Medicare is a government program and congress is part of the government and if this is a demonstration of how our new Healthcare will be working together, we are screwed.

Disney PhotoPass

The Disney PhotoPass is another item that costs a lot up front and you have no idea if you will use it. You will kick yourself if you do not buy it. The Photopass is a card you swipe anytime a photographer is at the park. They take character photos (pictures with Mickey Mouse), as well as scenic photos (in front of Magic Kingdom Castle). Disney will send you an email making you an offer of $99 before you leave. We did not accept because we already spent a small fortune to go on the vacation. When we started using the card you realize they have all the best spots staked out, we used the card 150 times. You view the pictures online and they document your time there better than your own photos. When new returned the pictures stay on the website for 30 days. If we wanted to buy the DVD of the Photos after the trip, it cost us $159.00. The choice to buy the DVD or not was one we tossed around but in the end it was a moment in time and we decided to spend the money. Next time we will pay the money up front as the choice to watch those photos disappear into the vapor seemed too much to take.
