YMT Vacations - Your Man Tours To Alaska

YMT Vacations knows Alaska. 

I know it seems crazy, but I miss Winter. We're only just getting into Spring, but already I miss snuggling up to a cozy fire and watching the snowflakes fall outside my window. It makes me think of Alaska.

I was there once. Funny enough, it was in the Summer. But I still had to wear a coat. So I'm thinking of going back. A friend of mine recommended YMT Vacations because he said he had a smooth ride all the way through. And he went in Winter! From the minute he picked up the phone until the day he got back home, his vacation to a very cold Alaska left him with some very warm memories. 

So I plan to give YMT Vacations a call before it turns to Summer. My friend tells me one of his warmest memories was how little it cost. Ah, beautiful, wondrous Alaska. 

Where it's Winter all year round.

Glasses? Me? Never...

I've always harbored a secret pride about my eyesight. 

In the Coast Guard I was even nicknamed "Eagle Eye" because of spotting objects in the ocean well before the radar picked them up. Of course, that meant I pulled a lot of Bow Watch, even when it was not my turn. Lesson learned. I kept my secret to myself after that.

That's why when I recently learned I need glasses I was a little surprised. Squinting at my computer screen caused me to go in for a check up and the Doctor suggested I wear glasses for my developing short-sightedness. Here I thought that was a personality flaw. But now my body is catching up.

I was a little suspicious of the glasses my Doctor was pushing, so of course I went online to do some comparison shopping. Naturally enough, the first website I found was - the first link on the engine. Even in my weakened ocular state, I could tell I was in the right place. stocks all the brands you'd expect, from reasonably priced glasses all the way up to Designer styles. And the pricing, variety, inventory and convenience were pleasant surprises. Who ever heard of shopping for eyeglasses online? 

Uh-oh. Is my hearing next?

For Last Minute Mother's Day Gifts Call 1 800 Flowers

Sure, Mothers Day is still a few weeks away. But if you're like me, you'll wait until the last possible minute anyway. But, no worries - we all have a friend who understands procrastinating sons and daughters: 1800flowers!

What's so smart about that you ask? Somehow Mom always knows when you've been scrambling around the neighborhood for a quickie bouquet. She might even think you picked your flowers out of a neighbor's garden! But here's the kicker...

Did you know that 1800Flowers offers same day delivery on select items? Not even my favorite flower shop can guarantee that on Mother's Day!

So, if your life gets busier than usual come Mother's Day, give 1800Flowers a call and put a smile on Mama's face. She'll marvel at what a perfect child she raised. 

At least until next year.
