It's Really Spring!!!

We have finally welcomed spring in Anchorage. On my other blog in WordPress, I was a bit discouraged over the delay of the arrival of spring, but on the front page of today's paper -- above the fold -- I see the snow geese have arrived, too.

The cruise ships are coming soon, and the tourist season promises to be bigger than ever. I'm not involved personally with this, altho' I am a relocation consultant for those planning their move to Anchorage. I understand that apartment rentals are saturated, which tempts me to rent my two bedroom condo. But that won't happen, as there's no place more beautiful in the summer than right here. The golf courses are even showing green again, and the bike trails are upgraded, fishing looks to be the best year, and the price of gas has even dropped at least a dime! Don't forget we do have a six-week baseball season, and the Anchorage Bucs look forward to winning the Alaska Baseball Title. The Bucs are now sharing the office building with the other local team, The Glacier Pilots. To explain that, both teams are leasing for Muni owned Building on the park strip, but of course, there is a partition between the offices.

The performing arts and visual arts are thriving, as the Concert Association welcomes Mary Poppins and Tony Bennett, among others. The Opera season was wonderful, as was the Symphony, but now we look forward to outdoor activies. I would also remind you potential visitors that we have NO sales tax in Anchorage, nor does the State of Alaska have an income tax. Yep . . . life is good here . . .

There are a great amount of channels to choose from including CNN,
Amazon Instant Video, HBO GO, Crackle, MLS Game Day, music from Pandora, play games and more.
ANTENNA: I get the same number of channels over the air as I did when I had a
7 year old generic HD TV. Thus, Roku has been the favorite name when it comes to
streaming players.

You see people passing time by checking on friends, catching
up on texts or e-mail or playing a video game oblivious to
what is happening around. I make a copy of every tune
I've ever liked on my iphone. Though it cannot offer you emailing, application downloading, etc.

You want to relive the memories of your wedding day for the rest of your life and the
right equipment is a prerequisite to turn this into a reality.
Third, it allows users to interact with another user through comments and likes.

Third, let's say you are not satisfied with the camera that you purchased and you decide to change. Red lights can be tricky but can be made to look good if you're careful.
On the other hand, the Nano worked fine, but after a couple of hours of
steadicam work, my arms were getting tired.

mod files to acceptable videos by most media player
including i - Phone, i - Pod, Apple TV, PSP,
Zune, Blackberry, Creative Zen, etc with no quality loss.
This is another Wi-Fi solution to sending music over to
speakers for Android users. We've already delivered our verdict as to what can be expected from the i - TV (or whatever it is called) and the Cupertino-based company will also need to navigate carefully because studios already have Hulu.

Camping first aid kits are different from the first aid kits you may have at home, as they will be stocked with supplies to treat outdoor injuries, such as snakebite, burns, sprains as well as animal and insect bites.
S'mores Stuff (chocolate, graham crackers, marshmallow) & Skewers for roasting the marshmallows (toddlers should always be supervised when around flames or sharp instruments). Find more information, about Deer Hunting in Alabama here.

Yard - check for ant hills or evidence of moles and other insects
that can damage your lawn. Sometimes, the bargains can
be found at different stores, so shop around in your neighborhood stores for the best deal.
This keeps your unit from having to work so hard to heat the water.

Not sure if you need more insulation on your water
heater. On the website or through the smartphone
apps, you can view your energy usage and compare your usage
to people in your geographic region or across
the globe. Look for bargains, when buying expensive things that you need.

We may give the writer his creative license, but there is a
certain tension in urban areas that never completely lets up.

Also, bigger animals may flock to the campsites: foxes, badgers and in some areas even bears may come
uninvited, attracted by the smell of food and leftovers.

There was no swimming at Buttermilk Falls during the week but the staff suggested we
drive two miles to Treman State Park - and WOW what a swimming hole they have.

I understand that those are the products designed by manufacturers to make them money and if they are endorsed by winning popular professionals,
sales will be high. All spaceship game leveling systems are
designed slightly differently, but there are
some general concepts that apply to all games in this genre.
The most unique thing about Ouya is that it is said to be "open" -- although what this means is up for interpretation.

Break your 3 normal main meals into 5 smaller portion
sizes - morning, snack, lunch, snack, dinner. Cucumber contains sterols which
can help to lower cholesterol and prevent carbohydrates from converting to body fat.
Then leave it a while until your tummy lets you know
that you're hungry again before opting for a healthy snack.

While these parks aren't the same, you might need to carefully analyze the price of them. I also learned that fresh air does not cause any sort of adverse reaction in my children. Find more information, about Deer Hunting in Alabama here.

I hope it was informative and helped you along your own culinary journey.

Depending on the type of event you’re hosting, you can design your own homemade
ice cream cake that will be tastier, more fun, and less expensive than anything you can
pick out of a retail freezer. You may even love them more than this classic cake recipe.
