I love Tuesday nights. Do you know why? If you watch the same show that I do, then you might. I’m referring to The Hills. At first, I thought I would hate it. The only reason I watched it was because my wife talked me into it. She had watched the other reality show when they were all in high school. This is another reason I felt I wouldn’t like it – I wasn’t familiar with the characters. But, I will say that it is very entertaining. And what people underestimate is the quality of the music during the show. It’s very trendy and fitting for the mood of the upcoming scene. If we add all the beautiful women, then that’s another plus. And if you are a woman, then I suppose you would find the men beautiful.
I think the reason people love The Hills so much is because as they’re watching it, they’re dreaming of having that lifestyle. But, some of the people on the show are more likeable than others. For instance, Spencer is not the most likeable person in the world. Justin is a distant second. Come to think of it, the only person I really like on the show is Audrina. I guess I only watch it for the drama between all of them. I love drama, as long as I’m not a part of it. The season is winding down and I’m looking forward to Tuesday so I can sit down, relax, and watch The Hills on my satellite tv. Now I just need to learn how to record satellite tv.

Guest blog post from Janet Monrad
We are a house full of internet junkies and the one thing I tell my kids is that when we are going away, do not post anything about it online. With all of my children on Facebook and all of their 400 friends, I do not want them telling the world that we are leaving to go on vacation and how long we will be there. Of course, they do not like this and all of their 400 friends are trustworthy (yeah, right!). So, I tell them they can post pictures and talk about their vacation when we get back.
Of course, we also have an ADT Security alarm we set before leaving and we do other things to make it look like someone is at the house. We have timers set to turn lights and a radio on. We also use a timer to turn the back porch lights on. This, we feel, may deter an intruder if they feel they might be seen by others.
We make sure all windows and doors are locked, even basement windows and doors. We make sure to put away any ladders that may help an intruder reach upper windows and any tools that may enable a break-in.
