I am awaiting the return of Nurse Jackie and the Big C to Showtimes unstoppable tv series line up. After the confusing end to The Big C last season I am waiting to see if Cathy's husband is actually dead or alive. The cliff hangers in series always get me! I did not think I would be able to get into a show about the horrible disease called cancer but the characters are so real and just make you have the ability to see how lucky you really are. Direct tv brings me the series in reliable, high definition broadcasting keeping my cravings satisfied. I have found that The Big C was my most surprising tv series find. You would think a series on the subject would be depressing and slow dragging but the writers have found a way to bring the topic to light while making you feel a connection to Cathy's life and friends.
Nurse Jackie is on the other end of the spectrum of tv shows. The lead character Nurse Jackie being someone you might find it hard to emphasize with but you just want to see how it ends so you keep your self glued to your dx3 direct tv. I find it hard to emphasize with the character as the entire topic of leading a double life is something i can not grasp. I have a hard enough time keeping up with one life. Nurse Jackie does allow me to see life through someone on the opposite end of realities eyes. The series start in May so we do not have a lot more time to wait to find out what this next installment will bring. Until then I will check www.dx3.net for schedules, update and all the nest ino on Direct TV.

Buying a car is always a difficult choice. We all hate spending days on days searching lots while shady car dealer sales people chase us down bothering us every step of the way. Twenty years ago you had no other option but to be harassed and bothered during this experience. Or the fake sticker prices that are always marked up thousands of dollars to trick you into thinking you are getting a good deal. I am not always a fan of the internet but I have found it makes car buying a lot easier. It has introduced many new sources to help the average person find the right car at the best price. From car reviews to the ability to look up facts on a specific car using the VIN to make sure it has not been in an accident or totaled out the net helps to protect us from potentially devastating purchases that we will regret for years.
There are some awesome websites out there that assist you in finding used cars. Shop4usedcars.com is an amazing resource. It allowed me to see what vehicles were available without leaving my home. It also has listings for different makes of cards saving your gas from driving to the different dealerships before you know they have what you want. Buying a used car just got less frustrating! I saw an amazing Durango on Steve Hansen Hyandia that was for sale. It really peaked my interest with having four dogs the space is really an issue for me! Or perhaps a Pacifica a little more modern stylings but with the same room inside for the furry friends from Dewey Chrysler dealer. No matter what you are looking for find it from the comfort from your home and then go to deal with the process of test driving and haggling. One less stepo in the annoyance of buying a used car!
It is clearly time for me to get a website for my company that potential customers can browse to see examples of my work, check out prices and specials, and learn about me. I can’t even tell you how many potential customers have asked me over the last few years “do you have a website?” or “what is your web address?” I always wanted to come across as a mom and pop type shop, but in this day and age, to not have a website is putting me drastically behind my competition. I recently searched my competition on the internet, and each one of them have not only a website, but a good website. I am searching www.smallbusiness.xo.com to look for some guidance in this area. I am really not all that tech savvy, and I have previously been a little intimidated by the whole idea of getting a website and managing costumers that way. I am going to have to take the leap, though, if I want my business to thrive and last.
