Redbox: The Time Traveler’s Wife Movie Review

Darren Kincaid - Monday, July 12, 2010

I finally had an opportunity to relax this weekend and have some “Me-Time.”  We all need some me-time that’s not being selfish, actually if you are always giving of yourself and puring out you’ll dry out if you don’t get a re-fill and that’s being selfish.  Sometimes you never really know how tired you are until you finally get some rest.  This weekend I got my “chill-on.” I got a massage, went to the pool, did some shopping, I even rented a movie from redbox.  Have you ever heard of The Time Traveler’s Wife?  The film is based on an acclaimed best selling navel by Audrey Niffenegger.  Starring Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana it was time well spent.

The Time Traveler’s Wife is not what I expected.  This movie is kind of hard to explain with out give away all of the good parts.  Henry, the main character of the film, is a time traveler which always sounds like something that is so cool to be able to do.  But what if you can’t control when you leave and when you come?  That could create some issues.   This film is about love, family being there for on another.

The Time Traveler’s Wife makes you look at time from a totally different perspective.  I went to the redbox to rent this movie and I would definitely watch it again.  In fact, I might just buy it.  The Time Traver’s Wife is an inspiring film, the concept was provocative and you’ll find yourself thinking about this film well after the movie is over.

I’ll give this film four stars.  This movie is well worth the redbox $1.

Before Buying Consider This…

Darren Kincaid - Wednesday, June 23, 2010

Have you ever heard the expression “People hear what they want to hear?” For some reason, most people seem to immediately believe their friends and family when they are told that they should “stop throwing their money away on rent and buy a home”.

First of all, the majority of money that you pay towards a mortgage is mortgage interest (especially in the first few years of a mortgage) and all of this money goes directly to the bank (not to the principal). On most 30 year mortgage loans, it is not until year 19 or 20 that you are paying more towards the principal than to mortgage interest. I am a home owner and have yet to hear anyone tell me that I “should stop throwing all of my money away to the bank”.

Secondly, there is a lot more money “thrown away” on closing costs, maintenance costs, insurance, property taxes, landscaping, and decorating. For those that are continuing to choose to rent an apartment home at Abberly Place Garner Apartment Homes don’t be so quick to believe those well-meaning friends who tell you to stop throwing your money away. Most of you are throwing away much less money than those home owners and have a maintenance-free life!

But don’t take our word for it, do your own research. We’ll be right here with open arms. Facebookand Twitterare also great ways of connecting with us.

A Movie With Dad (Free)

Darren Kincaid - Friday, June 18, 2010

I have a great idea for you and your Dad this weekend.  How about watching a movie. Not to be on the cheap side, though it can save you a buck or two.  But I have found that by having a nice sit down, relaxing and just being with each other the time can really become special.

Do you have two dollars?  Redbox has a great deal going on where if you get two movies at once they will give you a free movie rental.  I like movies.  I’m kind of like a semi movie buff so I wanted to share this information with you.  You won’t get the free movie night until about three days later when Redbox sends the promotional code to your email address.  The process is simple.  Just provide a valid email at checkout once you’ve rented at least two movies, but you have to get the movies both at the same time but that’s it, you’ll get a free movie in about three days.
If you haven’t seen Avatar the movie, it’s pretty  good.  The closest Redbox is about two miles at Lowes Food, you can see what they’ve got.  Check out the trailer of Avatar here.

Who Wants To Be a Billionaire?

Darren Kincaid - Wednesday, June 16, 2010

If we were in a class room the whole class would raise there hands. But what does it take to become a millionaire? Have you ever tried to count up to a billion? That might take a couple months if you’re consistent enough. For all of you that don’t know 1 billion read like this 1,000,000,000 is one thousand millions 1,000,000 x 1,000 = 1,000,000,000.

Right now, as Forbes tells it we have just over 700 Billionaires on the planet. I can understand how many billionaires would wish to stay out of the lime light at least for their family sakes rather than just staying at the fore front to be pulled on all of the time. How would you like to hang around some billionaires, you know, just to hear what they have to say? Or see how the day in the life of some one with no money worries at all can play this game of life?

You can go outside and try to make friends with a billionaire but in the mean time why not visit Forbes and watch some of these extremely wealthy individuals in video’s and interviews to get into their mind. If you want to be a billionaire you can start by seeing what they do.

How do you like the video’s? Let us know.


Beat The American Diet

Darren Kincaid - Friday, June 11, 2010

In America, it can be difficult to know what a portion size looks like, with the constant super sizing and humongous restaurant portions. Over time, plates have multiplied in size, and, seemingly, so have our appetites. Over time, you get used to eating more when it is readily available, I guess.

With that in mind, here are some visual aids to help you tell when enough is enough:

  1. Cooked meat: A 3-ounce serving will be about the size of a deck of cards.
  2. Fish: 3 ounces is the size of a checkbook.
  3. Cheese: One ounce is the size of four dice.
  4. Sliced cheese: One slice is the diameter of a CD.
  5. Pasta/rice: A half cup is the size of a baseball cut in half.

For more tips on how to tell if your portions are an appropriate size, visit Reader’s Digest online.

Plastic: I Can Shrink Wrap Texas With My Bedroom

Darren Kincaid - Wednesday, June 02, 2010
How far has plastic come and can we get it out of our life?  Americans alone throw away enough plastic in one year to shrink wrap the state of Texas! The top story on today (June 2, 2010) Was about one woman’s fight against plastic. In the 1960’s plastic began to take off and helped to boost our economy tremendously.  From the powerful whisper of one actor in 1967 from the movie The Gratitude.

Now if you look around plastic is there.  To the left, right, top and bottom of your area even our food; the computer you bought, the phone you communicate with, our life is surrounded by plastic.

It really makes you think about the impact plastic has in our daily lives, it’s outrageous. Alexander Parkes who publicly demonstrated it at the 1862 Great International Exhibition in London was noted as being the first man to make plastic.
We have been growing deeply within our love-hate relationship with plastic.  You may find this video clip on interesting.   I hope that this guide has been informational but even more I would like for this information to help to better your like.

The Golden Egg of Early Retirement

Darren Kincaid - Friday, May 21, 2010

I was surfing around the Internet and I cam across this great website.  I don’t know if you are familiar with Success

Magazine but they have a very dominate online presence.  I found a great video by Dave Ramsey on Retiring Wealthy.  He began to talk about IRA’s and tax free money.  With 401k’s and compound interest investments can grow  really fast.  I’m interested in seeing what else he has to say.  Go over to the website now and see for your self.  You will enjoy the wealth of other video’s as well.  Happy Wealth Friday.

Darren Kincaid - Tuesday, May 18, 2010

So let me guess… It’s been a couple of weeks now since you’ve started beekeeping and you realized that you didn’t know as much about keeping bees as you thought you did? Well the good news is that Kim Flottum, Editor of Bee Culture Magazine, and Shane Gebauer, from Brushy Mountain Bee Supply in North Carolina will help you. On Tuesday June 1st, 2010 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm there will be a free webinar entitled 6 weeks as a beekeeper…Now What?

Join Kim and Shane as they discuss what’s going on in your hives, now that you’ve had them up and running for a few weeks. This information will be real sweet, pun intended, Lol. You will learn things about your queen that you may not have known. Is your queen doing what you expect for her to do and what is best for the colony? If not, then find out what you need to do now and next.

What pests to look out for and when you shouldn’t even worry about pests. In this webinar Kim and Shane will go over things such as what varroa mites are and how to deal with them. Also, when is the perfect time of the year to start beekeeping.

It’s always good to see pictures people doing what you want to do or are currently doing. These are a few inspiring beekeeping pictures, a little more encouraging than the man covered in bee’s in this picture. Here also is the link to sign up for the free beekeeping webinar.
