In need of a new scene

It's snowing here. I watch a morning show called the Daily Buzz that's based out of Florida while I'm getting dressed in the morning. The guy from that show told me this morning that it was going to snow here, but the weatherman from here (when they give the local weather) said it wasn't going to snow, it was going to be 'partly sunny.' Tell me why the man from FLORIDA could tell it was going to snow in the NORTHEAST and NOT THE MAN IN THE NORTHEAST???
So I came across some free desktop wallpapers from American Greetings...they have some awesome scenes to choose from that are easy to download, you don't have to go through a process to get to them. They have a bunch of categories for the wallpapers, like Holiday and abstract designs. You can choose from different calendars or cartoon characters. I have chosen to download the Rocky Beach wallpaper, based on a photo from Hawaii. It's beautiful, and it's taking me away from the snow!

I almost chose to download a thunderstorm where the photos of the lightning are amazing, but I don't want to jinx the weather here and make it rain, so I'm sticking to a vacation photo from Hawaii.
They have nice screensavers, too, including some animated screensavers that are too cute for words, but my computer is never idle so I might as well not get any of those.
If you get any wallpapers, let me know what you chose and why!

Awesome. Thanks for watching the show and for being a fan and for listening to what I say!!! I never get credit when I am right, only when I get it wrong, so it was nice to see someone notices. Thanks again!

SPB- isn't he hilarious? I love watching that show instead of Good Morning or Today. I'm glad I wasn't talking shit about him the way I did our weatherman up here...lol!

I know, he's so funny. I used to watch the show when I was out of work last year. Since I have to leave my house extra early, I've no time to turn on the TV (sadly).

I turn my t.v on mostly for backround noise. It makes Daddy and Little Man know they need to get up or I start pulling covers. I just make sure to catch at least one weather report.

Maybe that wasn't a Care Bear, I think that was my grandfather.

Hello and thanks for the opportunity to post on your blog. I am the webmaster of a website dedicated to cruise ships, and I am working on improving my content constantly. Hopefully I will find some more interesting info on your blog as I will check back soon. Till then, here are a few tips on selecting a cruise that I hope you and your readers will find interesting:
How long do you plan to cruise? (from three to fourteen nights, to world cruises which are the longest, lasting up to three months);
Where and how to search? You have two alternatives: a cruise travel agent or agency or the websites of cruise lines;
Facilities offered during the cruise (for instance, if you like to gamble you may want to choose a cruise line that has casinos on board; maybe facilities for your children which are offered by all major cruise lines);
Port of departure. You can choose it by the proximity to your home, if you want to save money and avoid expensive airfare;
Land and shore excursions (they are offered by all cruise lines, and last from two to three days, before, after or even during the cruise vacation). This kind of excursion gives you the opportunity to explore new cultures, destinations, visit new places, practice water sports, do some shopping etc.
If you’d like to read more about discount cruises or finding last minute cruises you are more than welcome to visit my website, Cruise-heaven.com
Have an excellent day!
