Newspaper Map

Newspaper Map is an awesome site for reading newspapers from all over the world.
You peruse the map by country, language, etc.  Find a newspaper you want to read and go from there.
There are countless papers listed on the map, color coded by language.
This is a news junkies dream.
Also for those who use Chrome it comes as an app as well.
I was surprised when I set it to show only English newspapers just how many are out there is parts of the world where I would not have expected.
Also some listing give options to have to newspaper pages translated so you are not stuck with only the ones that are in English or whatever.

A little help from my friends.

Ever since i started rehab the first of the year, it has been an expensive process.  This has caused me to get behind on regular expenses.  Being on a fixed income it can be hard to "catch up" when something unexpected happens.  Now I am behind a full utility payment.  A dear friend found out I was having some financial trouble and decided to create a couple fund raising auctions to help me out.  If you have the time feel free to take a look and see if these would interest you.

I appreciate your time and thank you for your attention.

useful site TeuxDeux

Couldn't sleep so I was sitting around surfing for anythiing interesting on the net and found this site.   TEUXDEUX

TeuxDeux (pronounced To Do) is the simplest most bare bones easy to use to do list calendar ever.
All you get is 5 days at a time.  Type what you want to do and enter.  It's that simple.  Tasks are drag and drop and you can even drag them back into the enter field to edit them.
Below the calendar is a Someday section where you can list thing that are not date specific.
When a task is done click it to mark through it or delete it.

I've tried similar sites but they are so feature heavy they become bogged down.
This one was almost idiot proof.
Hope it is useful.

A great site that can help change your life and habits.

Daily Feats provides encouragement as you do daily activities that are good for you, your family, your neighborhood and even beyond.  Stop and take a deep breath, get a point.  Workout, get 10 points.  Go to church and get points, say thank you and get points.  Laugh and get points.
I've already earned 18 points and I just joined yesterday.
The cool thing is that as you gain points you can trade them in for rewards such as coupons of for bigger points gift cards to big name stores.
There are lots of options for feats to do, and none are that hard.
And there are bonuses for turning a feat into a habit.

So join me and give it a try.  Get rewarded for doing good things.

Gonna be busy for awhile

Hey friends,
Just wanted you to know I won't be around much for the next three months.  Tomorrow I go to sign up for Cardiac Rehab.  The first trip is orientation, but starting Monday I go full force.  Twelve weeks of classes three times a week   So each Monday, Wednesday and Thursday I go to Athens Regional Cardiac Rehab Center for an hour of exercize and then a short class in living with heart issues and avoiding any more of them.  The hardest part for me is the nearest class is a one hour drive each way.  So it will be about 3 1/2 hours a day.  My last class will be March 31. Non Emergency Medical Transport is taking me so it will be a free ride.  However, it means riding in a van, bus, suv, or whatever for an hour there and back.  And I get car sick easily.  (I can't take anything for it as all the usual remedies knock me out)

So if I an very quiet, you know why.
