Sports betting

by on Thursday, October 30th, 2008

With football season in full swing the college football season winding down it is prime time for sports betting. I use my time to study the betting lines and which team to bet on and I try to use this information wisely. I use Addict Sports to get the most information possible and I use it just as wisely. This year so far I up quite a bit and I put all the glory on Addict Sports.

Ski season

by on Thursday, October 30th, 2008

With fall arriving my thoughts turn to the ski season, we are members of the local ski club and go on the trips even though neither of us ski anymore, I enjoy riding the snow mobiles and just being with a fun group for a week. I am not sure which trips we will want to go on this year but the trip to Jackson Hole Wyoming seems to be the one that keeps popping up in our conversations. I have never been there and it is some where I would really like to go, so I am thinking that it will win the Nazas family lottery and be our ski club destination this year.

Aquatic Therapy

Everyone who has ever been in a hot tub can tell you how soothing and therapeutic the warm, jetted water feels on your body. There are hot tubs and soaking tubs in a lot of homes, but the ultimate luxury for someone who needs or loves aquatic therapy is a swim spa from HydroWorx.

A swim spa is a specially designed and built pool, which is much more versatile than a tub. The deeper water of a swim spa allows full body immersion while standing or walking. Some of the pools on the HydroWorx web site even feature underwater treadmills and underwater video monitors.

Hydrotherapy pools are used for rehabilitation from hip replacement surgery and can help lessen arthritic pain and other pain associated with joints or post surgery recovery. The natural buoyancy of the water helps relieve stress on joints and also reduces the fear of falling while exercising. Aquatic therapy is also used as a treatment for fibromyalgia and even weight loss.

But you don’t have to be injured or sick to enjoy the benefits of hydrotherapy pools. Professional athletes use the swim spas for the massage after a game or practice and use it to train. The water resistance from the underwater jets and the underwater treadmill give you a cardiovascular workout that cannot be matched on land. This is good for swimmers and runners to train, and anyone who is health conscious will appreciate the improved stamina and weight loss from session in a HydoWorx pool.

The HydroWorx pools can be installed outdoors as a partial inground pool or indoors as an inground pool. They work great in a sunroom addition or an addition to your home specifically for the swim spa and exercise.

Grand Old Opry

by on Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

Here in Nashville the Grand Old Opry is a grand place to take family and friends when they visit, and it is a fantastic place for locals to go see the stars of country music all in one grand night of music and comedy. We have only been a couple of times but it has been a nice time had every time we go. I had always wanted to see Charlie Daniels and I got the chance to see him on that famous stage and he brought down the house with his performance. One thing I will never forget was watching Porter Waggoner just before he got sick and died last year it was a pleasure to see him preform for the last time.

Condo rentals

by on Monday, October 27th, 2008

Every year when we go on our vacation we spend at least a week on the beach in either North Carolina at Kitty Hawk or Panama City Florida, and every year we get a great deal on our vacation condo rentals, the company that we normally rent our condo from is Home Away. They have a great web site with so very much information about rentals at all of the great vacation sites and specials on condo rentals that blow the competition away.

Besides condo rentals they have cabin rentals, vacation home rentals and house rentals to create a home away from home while you are on vacation. Feeling at home when you stay some times up to two weeks in a vacation rental is very important to me and my family. What I really like about these vacation rentals is that you can stay at lovely vacation rentals for a fraction of what you would pay for a hotel for the same amount of time.

We always take our wonderful pets with us on our vacation every year and we would be hard pressed to find a hotel anywhere that would allow us to bring our pets for a week and the vacation rentals that we stay in that we get from Home Away let us bring our pets who to us are as special as our children. As well as having wonderful vacation homes all over America, Home Away has wonderful vacation locations in over 100 countries as well.
