Last night, my daughter and I went back to Yankee Candle and we bought some of the 2013 Boney Bunch collection, candle accessories for my wife. Some of her birthday presents for her birthday next week. The store owner told me that she is already selling out and have already sold out some of the item in the 2013 collection already.

She also tipped me off that the main part of the Christmas stuff should be arriving by the beginning of October with some misc items trickling in before that.

It sort of becomes a win/ win situation between the two parties.

Also, the are alot of incentives out there and rebates that utility companies will give if the owners consturct a Green building or say one that is a LEED certified building. But the downfall to that is that there usually is an increase of the construction budget of almost 50% for going with a green building, but the owner should recoup that in eneergy savings over the next 10-50 years depending on the system and building.

Just thought I would share....
That's part of our negotiations now. Bellville doesn't have city sewers, so nearby Claxton will bring theirs if the retirement village uses Claxton gas. I think we all have an agreement.

There you go, and once that happens Bellville will then have natural gas avialable in the future.....

I have to laugh at my own posting here, (the typing in previous posts). You know something, it's funny how your just typing along, just blabbing, and you make a post/ post it here, and then you read it. It's amazing how some of the words you spell just don't look right and the ones you think that do, are just as wrong...

I'm telling you, I just had to break out webster's again just to back check myself after the fact. I have made it a practice to keep an edition at work and at home just in case~

I came across a recipe online for individual miniature pumpkin pies baked in a muffin tin. I posted it here.

I'm not a big pumpkin pie/pumpkin spice fan myself, but I know a lot of you are!

Hope you are all well. I am fine expect for my knee, it decided to go for a walk without me and is still sore as a result. It does not like stairs, so I have not been in the staff lunch room all week since it is up a very long set of stairs. Walking around is OK, but not bending. Anyway, that is my whine for the day, have to go. Working 8:30 to 4 today.
Have a great day.
Hoping you're knee feels better soon!
