Advantage Term Life for insurance information and quotes

Taking care of a family also involves Family Insurance .

Like other years we took the last day of november to go through all the insurances, and put the paymentsystems and coverages side to side with the new.

That way we found out I'd better ask the dentist to make a crown on one of my teeth, because next year it will be more expensive, and we'd better change another insurance, because the children are not as little anymore, so we probably won't use it.

Asking for Insurance Quotes can help you Save Money on Insurance .

I like to go to Advantage Term Life to find ways to Reduce Premiums.
The site provides a lot of information, like Insurance Plans Pros and Cons, Corporate Insurance Plans for Employers and also enables you to ask quotes online.
Insurance companies from all across the USA are covered, and Advantage Term Life offers those with the lowest prizes.
That makes it easy to Save Money on Insurance.

We had a good look at the Cash Back Life Insurance .
It pays back the money when the policy expires, which makes it a kind of saving account.
During the time the insurance runs the insurance company is able to invest the money, and by the time the policy expires they can return the money.
We thought it would be a great to have the policies expire by the time the children need the money to study to start a business.

I'm curious if you have any insurance advice.

Untill then I'll stick to Advantage Term Life.


Realising a dream with Blogsvertise

Isn't it great to make a bit of extra money?

Speaking for myself: I can do with a bit of extra cash.

My children are growing fast and because of their handicaps they need more than other children.

And I have a few dreams... Don't we all?
I want to realise them before I can't anymore.

Working outside the house is out of the question, but working at home can be done each and every day.
And it feels so good to have a goal.

So I've applied for a place between all bloggers that write for Blogsvertise each day.

You can do it too.

Blogsvertise offers opportunities. The guidelines and rules are clear, links will be provided, and all I have to do is give my honest opinion about a site, a product, a service.
After approval Blogsvertise sends what I've earned to my paypal account.

It's such a great way to realise my dreams a little bit each time.

What is your favorite carnival/amusement park ride?

We're never going to amusement parks. Can't. They're too far away and too expensive.
I like the observation wheel, though. The higher the better.

How do you react in uncomfortable social situations?

That depends.

When I'm in a meeting I feel myself becoming more businesslike and observant. Often even before the situation becomes uncomfortable at a conscious level.
I'm thinking more strategic then.

When people are trying to start a row with me, I back out. Unless I need to get things done for the children. Then I clearly state that I don't want a row, but that I need to get things arranged for the children, and then I state my wishes.

Competition is often for me uncomfortable too, regardless whether I'm the best or not.
Most of the time I don't play the game.
When someone wants to compete, OK, but not with me.

When people are unkind to me I withdraw from the situation, but go back at a later time and ask why.

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how much do you enjoy discussing deep, philosophical topics?

At 100.
We Dutch like to discuss..a lot!!
Foreigners often think that we're arguing, but were just duscussing matters and can drink a beer later without any problem.

Main Course
Did you get a flu shot this year? If not, do you plan to?

Yes, I did.
I'm a diabetic and I have asthma, so I got the advice to get the shot.

I've had a bad flu just a month before the shut and was very ill. So I was motivated this year.

Approximately how many hours per week do you spend watching television?

Let's see:

  • 250 min As The World Turns 50 min a day 5 days
  • 50 Casualty
  • 50 Holby
  • 50 House

So that's 400 min, add the news, occassionally some cabaret.

Say 8 hours.

thursday bug

thursday bug meme

Sometimes it helps to share with others what bugs your mind.
They may have a solution, a kind word, or a smile of encouragement.

My bug today is that I worry about the way schoolkids protest against the new plans from the government.
They protest with the belief they're doing something good, but most of them don't realise they don't even know what they're protesting against, and they also don't know that they attract the almost professional riotters.

I sure hope I have drilled my kids enough to have them stay at school, and go from school straight home.

TV Wall Bracket

I can't believe some people still have their TV's hidden in a corner.

A friend just bought a plasma screen and when I said it shouldn't be in a corner, she had the excuse that it's the safest place, because the children won't come as near to it as at any other place.

Without thinking if I was tactful I said: "Have you never heard of a TV Wall Bracket ?"


No, she never considered that a wall bracket might be the best solution.

DekoMount has nice models on their site. Some with huge discounts.
They have brackets for all plasma TV's and all LCD screens.
There's an 18 month guarantee included and a price match guarantee.

Just select the brand of your TV and the size of the screen and DekoMount offers you the total amount of brackets available.
Choose is you wants a fixed one, a tilted one or one that moves in some directions, and you'll have the brackets at home within days.

I like the fact that you can call for assistance. So when you're lost about what you need, you'll get professional advice.

DekoMount is developing an amount of same day collection places, to help you even faster.

Trade prices are available, for an amount of 10 or more.
Just call the service line.

With the offers on their site, buying brackets for schools, for instance is an option within reach.

works for me

This week something about hiding Sinterklaas and Christmas presents.

With a family of 8 hiding presents can be terribly stressful. When they find something the fun is taken away and buying something new is often out of the question.

So for the little presents I keep the washingpowderboxes. The empty ones are stored between the full ones and none ever has told me I don't need much detergent.
I wrap the presents in plastic, so they won't smell afterwards, and put them in a box with a little washingpowder. I cut a little hole in one or two corners, so when someone wants to take a box, it starts leaking powder. (Ha...that'll teach them!!)

For the large presents I have created room at the attick.
In the winter there's a large collection of boxes with summerclothes.
Behind the boxes there's space for real large items, if we have them, and otherwise the presents are stored in a box with "summerunderwear of the girls", right under the lovely T-shirts. So when they start looking in the boxes they'll start fitting the t-shirts. By the time they have seen them all I have found them there. LOL!

I've been doing this for ages and it works for me.

Save Buckets

Isn't this a great time for price comparisons.

You simply have to when you want to survive the rest of the year.
Everything is so expensive, and why be a thief in your own wallet?

A friend is teacher and she asked all the children in her groups what they wished for christmas.
She was surprised to find extremely expensive items on the lists.
MP3's were the main items.

For all those parents and grandparents I have the right site: Save Buckets.

It's a site where the prizes are compared of 1,723 MP3 Players and 799 Accessories.
All items are described and when available there is a link to buy the product even cheaper. For instance by buying more at the same shop so you get a discount when buying above a certain limit.

You can search in the shops you know, or in all shops.

This site enables you to find the best prize for the products on the wishlist.



Changing eating habits

Dear Laane,

After indulging myself at Thanksgiving and tasting in the shops at Black Friday I feel like a fully blown balloon that is chained to the ground.

Need I change my eatinghabits slowly or do you think it's better to be more drastic?


What a great question.

In the past I used to be kind and said that changing habits slowly would enable you to change them for a longer time.

Now I think you need a drastic change to unchain yourself.
Go to your neighbour and commit yourself to walking each evening. Maybe even with two or three other people, so when one can't go, there's always someone else.

Walk each evening a bit more and a bit faster, untill you feel you want to do more sports.
Clean your room from all unhealthy food and ingredients.
Take a salad with every meal.

Ofcourse you can inform yourself about healthy food on internet.

Don't forget to inform me about your progress.

Good luck!

lcd digital photo frames

My son lives in a house with a couple of other people.
They'll celebrate the birthday of one of the groupleaders soon.
A bit too soon to find out themselves what he wanted to have, so they phoned his wife.
She told them he loved to have an lcd digital photo frame.

Now they have a new baby they can't afford to buy one, but when the group at the home will be able to raise the money, she will provide the photos.

What a marvellous idea!

So the young people living there, and the other group leaders have put their money together and they were so happy to have reached the necessary amount.

When they arrived at Digital Framez, they saw there was a discount of 5% for ordering before december 1, so they have bought him not only a digital photo frame but a mug and a package of cocoa too.

I had a look at the site of Digital Framez.
They have lowered their prizes tremendously. Not only for the digital frames but also for the portable DVD players.

Worth a look when you haven't done all your christmasshopping.


Eurovision Song Contest

Laane, I heard there are mayor changes in the ranking at the Eurovision Songcontest.
Why? Can you tell something about it?

In the past neighbouring countries tended to vote on each other.
That wasn't a real problem, because the winner was from another country about each year and all participants could find themselves more or a bit less in the choice of the winner.

When the eastern european countries and former Balkan countries joined, there were more clusters formed, and the winner wasn't always the best participant.

Now the contest will de completely different.
There will be 6 pots to start with, thus preventing returning voting.
That way the best participant will have the chance to win, instead of the country with the most friends.

You can read all at the site of the Eurovision Song Contest.

Which personality trait has gotten you into the most trouble?

Pfff... Can I answer this one next year?

I think the most troubles are caused by ... hmmm...

I'm a bit shy. Not when it's about the children or others, but when it's about me.
Not really on internet, but in real life I am.
I can make the perfect impression that I'm open and outgoing, but people won't see how I really feel.

I haven't had real troubles with it. Unless you count not finding a loving husband real troubles.

If you had to gain 10 pounds what would you eat to gain the weight?

Applepie, schwarzwalderkirschtorte, icecream, fudge.

How is your private self different from your public self?

People see me as the woman who stands up for her children, who has an outspoken opinion, who's never lost of a kind word and who can turn into a stand up comedian in a waitingroom.

I'm rather quiet at home...

The Real Estate Book for fast choices

The Real Estate Book is a nationally and internationally recognized brand

One of my best friends is invited to move to America.
He's a scientist and so is his wife.
Both have longed for an opportunity like this after more of our university group went to Canada and America.

They were wellprepared, even before the offer was made.

They've saved enough to buy a house and already knew they would use the internationally recognised Real Estate Book to find their Real Estate.

The site the Real Estate Book has is easy to use and offers clear information.
One can search for homes or agents, country, city, amount of bed-and bathrooms and one can give the lower and upper limits of the online search.
Within moments one can see what's on offer.

So we sat down this morning, right after the papers were signed and started to make arrangements.

I know from experience things will move very fast.

And fast it was.
We had a look at the Atlanta Homes for Sale.
Within 5 minutes they had decided on a house.
A wonderful house in Winder. It's small, though luxurious.
Perfect for them both and they're really looking forward

The Real Estate Book displays good photos pf properties on internet, so you can see what you buy.
Available also a detailed map, so you can't drive wrong and information about the neighbourhood.
The prizes of the homes which are sold nearby gives a good indication of what to expect.
They're contacting the agent right now.

A second house they found on the page of the Charleston Real Estate.
So when the first doesn't work out, they have another option available.
It's driving a lot more, but they're used to it.

I'm so happy for them they've found a home so soon.
But I didn't doubt they would, seeing the used the Real Estate Book

Black friday

Hi Laane!

I see black friday everywhere on internet.
Can you tell me what it is?


Black friday is the day after Thanksgivingday.

Shops open before sunrise and people have the opportunity to grab great offers on products.
It's the start of the christmasseason in america.


friday's feast

As our chef is celebrating Thanksgiving and in his menu today is only turkey, for those who want to play anyway Gattina's put up a feast.
Here is the menu.

Imagine that you are deaf, dumb and insensitive to touch. What other image of happiness could you have?

Being deaf would be very difficult.
Music keeps me alive, so first I would try to find ways to restore a sense of hearing, even when that means feeling fibrations inside.

I've got a grotta. That's an instrument that is used for healing people.
I think I would use it far more than I do now.

Keeping my sight would be a real happiness.
I could travel all over the world, read and write.

Do you collect anything?

Oh yes: giraffes, little houses, fountain pens, teapots.
I love earrings and pendants, and musical instruments.
I stopped collecting children.

When do you start your Christmas?

Certainly not before Sinterklaas has gone. That's december 6.
Changing the home into a christmasfeel makes my autistic kid go nuts. He experiences it as a true change of the world and he has to find a new sense of home again.
So some years I decorate only minimal. Just depending how I feel about facing all the meltdowns.

Main Course
What would you do if you were in a corner and a snake was staring you down?

Stare back ...
Sheeshj...I don't know.
Maybe step towards it to make an end to the situation.

If you were in the library and had gas.

Who? Me? I never have gas???!!!


need money?

Some people have enjoyed the preparations for thanksgiving, knowing their whole family would come to visit.

Now the day had almost come to a close they're left with worries.

All the lovely food, the drinks and a gift here and there has cost far too much, and nothing is left over for Black friday.
Even worse...there''s still a week to go intill next payday.

Ofcourse one can ask family for a loan. But moneyproblems within families are among the worst problems.

There's an easy solution to bridge the gap between today and next payday: apply for one of the payday loans.

You can get up to $1500 when you fullfill the requirements.

You need to have a job longer than 3 months.
You need to have at least a monthly income of $1000.
You need to have a valid checking account open for at least 3 months.

Ot works very easy.
You have to fill in an application form with personal information, employment information, current banking and financial information, and references.

A lender will decide if you're approved and how much you can lend.
Some have additional requirements. They'll let you know.

When everything is allright you'll money will be send to your account overnight.

There's no need to go somewhere. You can arrange everything from your home.

Always keep a close look on the rules how to pay back this cash advance.

Tinysurfer.com offers free vacation rental advertisements

I love surfing. I mean surfing the internet.

I've found an interesting site with Free vacation rental listings, a place where people can advertise their vacation rentals and condos for free. They can even put complete vacations at the site.
What a great way to advertise!

Full use of the site means a large collection of opportunities for the traveller.

Not all destinations are described yet, but I'm sure people will find this site and use it to advertise their own condo.

You can find interesting offers under: Telluride vacation rental.
I found myself dreaming about the Telluride vacation rental.
What an amazing Hawaiian vacation home!
It has all the luxury you only dream about at other places: large private backyard with a barbeque, a television and dvd player, high speed wireless internet onsite, and the house is only 5 minutes driving from the marvellous beach!

The abundance of photos enables to make a good choice.

What an innovative way to attract visitors.

This site certainly has a lot more to offer than other vacationsites.


House Plans and More

Had a good talk with the neighbour again about the new house.

She was very happy I told her to make a list with everything she absolutely couldn't do without in a house, everything she needed in a house and everything she wanted in a house.

It made it far more easy to make choices between houses she liked.

House Plans and More offers help with making floor plans (home plans, home designs), so you'll get the most functional architecture for your new house, wether it still needs to be built or whether you're looking for an already excisting house.

House Plans and More uses a home plan cost estimator, HDA residential estimating software, other recourses and ofcourse their expertise.

The site offers interesting information.
When browing through the Log Home Plans, keep in mind that you have a choice between a natural look (made of peeled wood) and milled wood (wood that has been through a selectionprocess and has been worked on.)

Going through the list of for instance luxury home Plans, will generate many ideas.
As does browsing for instance the Ranch House Plans.

Ofcourse there are many more architectural styles. They're all catagorised and it makes the site very easy to use.

You have different options to sort the plans: by best sellers, total square feet, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, or estimated cost.

In case you're new at the site you'd best use the main search feature, which includes dimensions, 3 important features and some other information.

I'm sure you'll find at this site what you need.
You can enter your postal code to get the estimaled build costs.

3. Much to your surprise you find __________?:

A new set of bagpipes and one of my favorite bandmembers waiting for me.

We put the bagppipes together and test the reed.
After making it a bit more souple, we have a try and the sound is magnificent.

He gets his bagpies and both walk through the empty building, enjoying the enormous full sounds of the songs we play.

When we're tired he puts on a fire in the open hearth, and we both sit down.
In his bagpipecarrier he had a bottle of whiskey, and we enjoy the warmth from the fire and the taste of the whisky.

Slowly the sun sets and casts long shadows through the windows.

The evening is long, the carpet soft, and the rest I'll leave to your dirty minds.

4. Upon leaving and driving off, you know you will never forget this adventure and think to yourself __________?:

That I have to drive back because that new set of bagpipes is still there.

DonCapone Voice Over for almost every budget

The voice with which products are presented influences the customers to buying more than the actual wording of the message does.
Movies and documentaries are better absorbed with the proper voices.

The way we perceive the world is not only by seeing, but also by hearing.

That's why VoiceOver is so important.

Done Capone is a voice over talent that lends his voice to a multitude of mediaproducts: Documentaries, Radio spots, Television programs, business presentations and characters in movies.

The right voice complements every message and Don Capone has that right voice.
For over 27 years he worked at CBS Broadcasting and Clear Channel Communications, providing identity and easy listening.

having the right voice is not the only important characteristic required for good voice overs.
The language needs to be spoken without accent. People need to be able to focus in a relaxed way to hear the most of a message.
The person needs to have an insight in how texts are constructed. That way natural speaking is facilitated. People can hear when someone only reads the grammer, follows the interpunction. Insight and understanding are important for changes of the height of the voice and other natural changes.
A person also needs to be able to follow the instructions of a director, or to follow the movements of a movie character.
He needs to be able to put emotion in his voice when that's required.
And he needs to be able to edit texts so they can be adjusted to the abilities of the voice or to the circumstances.

There's Voice Over at Don Capone available for every budget.

You can hear samples on the site and get an idea for what kind of jobs voice over can be used.

works for me

For the first time I didn't experience discomfort when the dentist wanted to make an impression of my teeth.

Ofcourse that was a relief.

What happened?

The assistant was not of the talkative kind and she didn't announce she was coming with that large thing with fluid rubber.
She just asked me to open my mouth and pushed the thing in it.

It happened that I had my tongue upwards in the back of my mouth, instead of well out of the way.
The coloured stuff pressed against my tongue, but didn´t cause me to gag.

So, that´s my little bit of advice for you this week.

It works for me and hopefully it will work for you too.

What family traditions or customs would you most like to see preserved?

I want Sinterklaas to be preserved.
We don't do presents at christmas here in The Netherlands. Santa doesn't come here.
Sinterklaas arrived at november about the 18th, and when he is in the country the children are allowed to put their shoes ready with something in it for Sinterklaas his horse.
In exchange they'll get a little present.

Sinterklaas leaves in the night of 5 to 6 december and leaves presents.

I love the tradition and I hope it'll be Sinterklaas here again.

(Last year we had no money for presents and that felt soooooo bad.)

What do you feel is the least sexy part of the body?

Hmm.. don't know. I really don't know.
And who cares?

What keeps you awake at night? Why? (This could be worries, recurring thoughts, pain or any other distraction. Read into this any way you wish.)

So many things that keep me awake.
Worries about the children, about money, missing a caring partner, pain...
So I go to bed only when I'm tired.

Hi Jen

Just copy and put on your computer.


manic monday

Describe yourself in one word:


What is your favorite kitchen utensil and why?

ttt...don't know the translation.
It's a wooden flat spoon.
It can be used to stir, lift pancakes, keep the bottom of the pan clean.
I love it!

What is the one thing that frightens you the most about growing old?

There are a couple of things I don't like:
That I can do less. I've been a balletdancer and I miss the freedom of dancing.
That I get ugly. Gravity is pulling at my eyelids and that makes me feel tired and look old.
That I don't have the chance to find the right partner anymore. It's the loneliness of never been seen as the person I am. Never to experience to be number 1 in the life of someone else, and forgetting myself because the other is the real number 1.

Loosing my dreams.... giving them up, one by one.

Spock is new

I was asked to tell more about a searchengine that delivers information in a well organised way.
Ofcourse all searchengines have a way of organising their content, but when you want to find information about persons I know the right thing for you.

I'm talking about Spock.

This is a searchengine that provide basic information about persons, information that can be added and adjusted by members.
That way you can, for instance, put your CV, a photo and other information about you on internet at a place where it can be found within a click.

Spock isn't intended to be a communication group, but it has many features that enable communication, like messaging.

I tried by typing in Nobel prize winner and found a long list of all the winners.

because I'd just read something about Toni Morrison I looked her up and found this:

Isn't it marvellous?

Now you can add your information, like haircolour and musicpreferences too, and even add your knowledge about others.
You can vote, and participate in the system in other ways.

Right now I'm sure I will use the system often.
Looking up detailed information can come in very handing when preparing for a meeting.
I'm very bad with names and looking at the photo of a person and seeing information ads identity to an otherwise unknown fase.

I don't know how much control there is on how relevant the information is that can be added by the members.
Right now the searchengine works very efficient and comes up with what I request.

When I search for British logician I get a perfect list.
But what happens when people add fake information? I know there are people that sick.
And how about the copyright of the photos?

I'm sure these matters will be solved in time.

Right now Spock is really an additon to the world of internet.
It deserves to carry the name of this wonderful icon of my past.

You won't forget to use this searengine!

friday's feast

How much money do you plan to spend this upcoming holiday season?

Well, it depends on the bills we get up until then, and upon how much the health insurance is going to cost next year.
Right now I don't have much insight in expneses, because the prices of groceries have gone up very much. With a family of 8 that's a huge difference.
I'm a bit afraid we won't have much this year...like last year. And I felt so very bad...

What was the last television show you watched, and was it good?

As The World Turns.. well, it's a soap.
Yes, it was great.

The last show?? Can't remember...

If you had to paint the walls of your living room tomorrow, what color would you choose?

Haha!! I'm in the middle of it.
It's a light blue/purple. Very light.

Main Course
Name something clever or practical you have thought of that should be invented, but hasn’t yet.

Nooooo, I won't tell you.
I need to get rich, you don't.

List 3 things you would like to receive as gifts this upcoming holiday season.

  • smallpipes, something for my uniform or something else that's scottish
  • a place to stay for free during so I can go on vacation
  • just something really for me
