Online Personal Ads for Everyone

Prime Dating Sites is the little black book that provides online personal ads for everyone. Seriously, what is a “little black book”? It is a book in which someone keeps a list of his previous dates and ranks them according to some kind of personal review system.

Prime Dating Sites does the same thing, not with dates, but with online dating sites. After thoroughly testing each of the online dating and matching services, they review them for those who are considering entering into a relationship with them. Most clients of dating services make their selection based upon advertising. It makes so much more sense to objectively look at the various options and choose the service that best matches your own interests and intents.

Perfect Match,, Yahoo Personals,,, Lavalife,,, Friend Finder, American Singles — they all are good in their own way, so how do you choose between them? Let Prime Dating Sites help you discover how they differ and how they each fill their own unique niche. You have specific criteria that you desire in an online dating. Prime Dating Sites can help you work through the selection process and find the one that best suits you.

Isn’t it time to trade in that little black book for a ginormous database of interesting people, one of whom may be your perfect match?

Tim Russert Dead

Tim Russert - Video

As everyone knows by now, Tim Russert died at work earlier this afternoon. His death was sudden and unexpected. He apparently collapsed, probably from sudden heart failure, and was unable to be revived. He was 58-years-old.

Aside from the obvious sadness at any death, it is always something that takes me aback that someone can be here one minute and gone the next. I know that obviously, but we don't think of it very often. When something like this happens, its a reminder that nothing is guaranteed. I take it as a reminder to be thankful for the blessings we have today as opposed to looking for something tomorrow.

Timesheet Software

Timesheet Software is incredibly sophisticated these days with the capability to handle everything from a staff of just a few employees through complicated huge corporations and everything in between.

However, when you get right down to it there’s a timesheet at the core of it all and without that information being correctly completed, none of the sophistication is of any use at all. Of course, that's why its important that there is a simple and trustworthy method of inputing the information required to accurately complete time sheets. It needs to be as simple as possible with clear and precise instructions and in terms that are easily understood by whoever is filling out the original data. Otherwise, you end up with a mess on your hands and don't get a true reflection of time management issues.

The software helps you identify areas that need attention and areas that are producing efficiently. Its not a matter of estimating anymore, you can have precise data that reflects time management issues throughout your business. You can also use the data gathered to get better estimates on any future projects you have planned.

This is just the tip of the iceberg of what time management software can do to help you build your business. Check out their website for a good overview of everything that the software can do. You might just find that its exactly what you need for a more smoothly run business.

Have Fun Shopping Online!

I’m a bargain shopper. I like nice things and I like to pay as little as possible for those nice things. I don’t mean cheap, I mean inexpensive - there’s a difference ) is a website that offers online coupons with coupon codes and fantastic deals from over 1,000 merchants! When I visited the site I was amazed at how user friendly it was and at the huge number of name brand merchants that offer significant savings through the use of coupons online.

The site stays up to date with daily updates providing the very latest coupons and product deals. It is easy to navigate making it very simple to find the latest bargains on the web.

I checked out several product categories and found myself in the Health & Beauty section. I went to The Body Shop coupons and found a range of types of coupons, from a dollar amount off with the purchase of a specific product, to free shipping with a purchase to getting an additional product with the purchase of products and more.

On each page the coupons are listed along with their expiration dates, redemption instructions and a list of related merchants you can check out.

I liked that I could browse through Boden USA clothing catalog online sales! How cool is that! I love and Banana Republic! There are so many stores with great deals on coupons that its hard to pick just a few. Check it out for yourself and find what you are looking for!

Happy online shopping!

Queen Tells Kate Middleton to Get a Job

Kate Middleton

The Queen of England is telling Prince William that Kate Middleton has to get a job and actually work before they take any steps towards marriage. The subject of Kate Middleton's lack of employment since she graduated college three years ago. She's piddled with this and that, but she's not actually been employed. She seems to be focusing more on a career as Princess in Waiting as opposed to seeking out any other career paths.

At 82-years-old, the Queen maintains a full work schedule and is said to feel strongly that people should work. She also is said to feel strongly that the Royals should set an example of hard work. She doesn't quite know what Kate Middleton does with her time and doesn't want a public relations problem that might be caused by having a Royal WAG on William's arm.

So she's laid down the law to William. Kate gets a job. Period. Oh, and she has to actually work the job for more than a month or two (which has been her pattern).

I guess time will tell if the Queen will be able to influence Kate to do more than wait for Prince William to ask her to marry him.

Grandfather Clocks are Great!

grandfather clockI have never had a grandfather clock anywhere I've lived. I don't know why. I love them. I think they add personality and charm to any home, but we've moved around a lot and for whatever reason I've never gotten one. I guess I was afraid to move it. Plus, I kind of had the idea in my head that they were all pretty much alike. That's just not true, there are a ton of grandfather clock options. The variety in styles, chines and tunes is almost staggering.

Most of the one's I've seen in other people's houses are the traditional ones that we all think of when we think of grandfather clocks. Who says that grandfather clocks are all the same? I have found a website with the most beautiful grandfather clocks of all shapes and sizes. They don't just have grandfather clocks, they have Grandfather Clocks, Wall Clocks, Mantel Clocks and more.

I love the one featured to the right. It is part of the Howard Miller Triple Chime Grandfather Clock line at If you click on the image to the right you can go to the larger image and see the beautiful Tuscany Cherry wood grain and delicate carvings in the wood. If (WHEN!) I buy one, I think that will be the one I get. I already have a place for it. It'll go right inside my front door in the front foyer so it'll be seen as soon as someone comes into the house.

This is just one grandfather clock in a huge selection of beautiful clocks of all kinds. You can shop by brand or type of clock. Their inventory includes wall clocks, mantle clocks. It also includes Howard Miller, Bulova, Ridgeway, Kieninger, Seth Thomas and more. Whether your style is classic, traditional or ultra modern, you can find it at Also, check out their blog at

Not all of Hollywood thinks its cool to redefine patriotism as undermining the military and bad mouthing the administration at every turn.

Gene Simmons is unapologetically patriotic and supportive of the military.
