On Vacation

Thanks to Wm Rowe

When I was a kid my whole family would pile in the car to head to the beach for a week of family togetherness and vacation. I always will remember that my dad would go around checking the doors and windows to make sure they are sealed tight and locked so that no one could get in while we were gone. He would also turn off the hot water heater and shut off the breakers to the house. I always thought this was a bit overkill until I went on a vacation myself to come home and find a pipe had burst in my house and flooded my entire basement and the backyard while I was gone. Unfortunately the neighbors were also out of town so there was no one there to notice and shut the water off at the street. After that lovely little incident I found out that it could have been prevented with a motion detector attached to my home security systems. The motion of the water would have set off the alarm and someone would have come to the house to turn off the water.

My hopes for the new seaosn of Boardwalk Empire

Guest post written by Tina Burgens
When it comes to the second seasons of shows, a lot of the time they just aren't nearly as good as the first seasons. But I really hate when you see that happen. Then other times the second seasons of shows are so much better than the first season. Well I hope that the second one is what happens when it comes to the second season of Boardwalk Empire coming on this fall. I have some really high hopes for it and I'm pretty sure the show can reach and surpass those expectations by far!
I've been doing a lot of looking around online to see if I can read anything written by someone who's seen a new episodes form the second season or something. While I was online looking that up the other day, I ran across some clear reviews. I showed them to my husband and after that we decided to change over our home internet service to one of the packages that we found on there.
I'm really looking forward to this new season adn I have a feeling that this season is just going to be downright amazing. They have the talent and the budget backing it up to where it's definitely possible.
