Drew Carey just not the same

The newest host of the Price is Right, Drew Carey, just doesn't cut it for me. I watched an episode today. It just wasn't the same. Maybe I am too used to the voice of Bob Barker, but it also seemed like Drew Carey was rushing himself and others to get through the show. I read somewhere that he does a little stand up between commercials, but obviously I didn't see that on the TV show.

Maybe it will just take a little getting used to, hopefully, the show used to be fun to watch.

Today I am going to start by writing a short review for www.511tacticaloutdoors.com. This web site has police gear and things of police nature. The web site is super clean and the layout will drive you right to the products you are looking for, like the 5.11 Tactical Pants. The navigation makes it so easy to find things, you are going to want to add things to your cart because it has never been so easy.

Not to mention, they offer a couple of freebies as well, you can see them by clicking here. Overall, I think the site is excellent. If you are looking for anything tactical or police related, this web site looks to have everything you need. Here is a small list of categories they have.

Prison Overcrowding Story by Ted Koppel

I just finished watching a story by Ted Koppel about prison overcrowding. I am not sure what channel it was on, but it was recorded by my DVR about 2 weeks ago, so I finally sat down to watch it. This country is really in some major trouble. The story was in California and they have the 3 strikes law in FULL affect. You do 3 crimes you are in prison for 25 to life, no questions asked. Since that law has gone into affect, the prison population has climbed almost 3x.

"Prison warehouses", as they are called, are just that warehouses with bunks for inmates. Now, don't get me wrong, they get what they deserve, but the one thing that bothered me the most was that when a inmate gets out of prison, he goes back to the SAME city or town where he was before he went in.

No big deal right? Wrong, why do you think there are so many inmates that have been in prison more than 1 or 2 times? The "demons" are waiting for them when they get back! Another thing that was sort of troubling was the fact that some inmates don't have any opportunity to better themselves, because the state is cutting back on everything they need to get an education in prison, if they choose to go that route.

I know they should have thought about the before they committed crimes, but the country is really in a tight spot. I will never say to let them out, it's overcrowded, but I think the 3 strikes law should have been more detailed. Not, you got caught stealing a pack of smokes 3 times? You get life. What sense does that make. And if you thought segregation was bad in the city you live in? Think about prison. That is the most segregated place on earth, any prison. The whites with the whites, blacks with the blacks and so forth. The prison officials do this "to keep it safer for everyone involved in the prison system".

Isn't that a farce? They promote segregation, so that when the African American or white American gets out after 10 years of segregation, that is all he is used to? Where does the most recent rise in racial tension come from? Prisons. Without a doubt.

Current Housing Market

We all that the current housing market is not going so well. Too many homes in a flooded market and the prices are dropping. Today I would like to mention Mortgage Brokers at www.earth.co.uk. The benefit of having a mortgage broker, instead of a salesman, is the broker will find you the best mortgage instead of selling you the one he makes the most money on.

With Money Magic Mortgages you will receive a free quote without obligation, no credit check and can get a loan for any purpose. The web site looks very professional and there is a lot of information regarding mortgages. There are also mortgage guides that you can read to help you find the mortgage that is best for you.

In my own opinion, having excellent customer service is a plus. You are dealing with a huge asset and don't want a shady customer service department getting in the way of you making on time payments or getting responses to important questions.

Winter is on the way.

And that is a bummer. In the midwest, the winter gets nuts. The nights are getting colder now, so we know that at anytime we can wake up with snow on the ground. When winter rolls in around here, it gets dark so early people start to get weird.

Plastic Surgery - Is it for you?

With so many places offering plastic surgery these days, you must wonder if you can trust the one you want to use. After looking at the web site for UK Plastic Surgery, I can tell they are presenting a most professional image. They have overviews of each procedure and details about each one, as well.

Obviously, if you are looking to have any type of plastic surgery done, having a company that is registered with the Healthcare Commission is a plus. The Healthcare Commission oversees every step of the plastic surgery process so that you can be assured you made the right choice. Still not sure, click here to read an article putting Mya over the competition.

BoSox WIN!

Its that time of the week again folks. We have football all day and some of the games look like they could be some good watchin'. On the other hand, there are a couple too many that look like they will not be very good watchin'. Take your pick, but I think the Monday Night game will be a watcher.

Plus, it's always fun to watch New England and Indianapolis beat up on their opponents. If you have money wagered, you are most likely already glued to the TV. If not, at least pick New England, geez!

Wildfires are out of control

Oh yeah, anybody and their moms already know this, but I thought it would be a nice little topic to use of some space on my blog. The wildfires in California are really amazing. I cannot even fathom the size of the actual "blaze". Million dollar homes and businesses are getting torched and there is really nothing anyone can do. You can help by donating to the Red Cross, but that's about it. You aren't going out there to help put the fires out, right?

Don't forget you can help, just think outside the box and you'll see.

Using Coupons Online? Is this new?

Well, no it is not new, but maybe the web site that you use at the moment is getting a bit stale? Take a look at couponchief.com for online coupons from your favorite online stores. I especially like to go there and look up coupons from Dell.com or the largest online shoe store, Zappos.com.

With the holiday season right around the corner, starting with Halloween, you will want to make sure that you are bookmarking your favorite online coupons from popular stores. I would take a look at clothing stores and pet stores, too for items I am going to buy for my family this Christmas.

I could use the online coupon from the food and wine area for my parents. And my brother and sisters would most likely get clothing, so a discount at Old Navy or the Gap works perfectly there.

Do you have Pet Insurance?

Some people laugh about pet insurance, but what would happen if you have to take Fido in for surgery and can't pay for it? Would you just put him down? No way!

Free LLC Forms

When you think about small businesses, you really don't realize the amount of paperwork that needs to be filed. Large companies have people employed just for making sure they have all the forms correctly filed.

Small companies also have their fair share of paperwork if they should decide if they are going the LLC route or not. Getting the right forms you need is a must. Free llc forms is even better. Incparadise can help you get blog. Companies can get all the forms they need to make everything legal with the state they are located in. Don't forget that when you are making money with a business and you pay income tax, you will want to have all the right forms in place to make sure everything goes smoothly.

Another reason that you might want to make sure that you have all the right forms in place, is that when the IRS wants to audit your company they will want to see all the forms. Having regular meetings with shareholders is another requirement for a small business. In these meetings the notes are called company minutes and they are important. This is another record the IRS will request. Check out the http://www.incparadise.com/ web site for more information.

Drew Carey to Host Price is Right

You heard it right folks, or if you hadn't heard it yet, Drew Carey is the new host of the Price is Right. Perfect. I think he is a good fit, we'll just have to watch and see. BUT, I must ask, is this how he wants to end his career? He could do the show for another 30 years, right? Let's just see if I can find the contract that was signed, hold on. *searching the internet* It looks like he has signed a 5-year contract, which isn't bad. That way if the show were to tank, he can get out without feeling bad about it.

I think he'll do just fine and I like him, so the show might even be a little more fun to watch.

Have you seen Ninja Warrior on G4?

Is it just me or are these guys (and girls) nuts? They either train forever or have insane muscle control to get through some of these obstacles. The show features 100 people and a 4 stage course. Each one testing balance, strength and of course speed. You have to be fast, but you want to watch your step. I think the show is on a couple of nights a week on G4, if you get that one. It's the gamer channel if that's how you remember it.

It's quite entertaining, but not as entertaining as MXC!!
