Co-ed Softball

Thanks for the post from Stan Atkins

During the fall I love playing co-ed softball. I have played co-ed softball over the past 6 years. For me, meeting up with friends, having a couple drinks, and then playing softball is about as good as life can get. Not only is playing softball fun for me but it is also healthy. I always feel like my mind and body feel better during fall because I tend to stay more active. 

Now do not get me wrong, I still love to watch our satellite tv from www.tvbydirect.com when I am not playing but for the most part I try to stay busy with softball. When I get out on the field it seems like the rest of the world just kind of disappears.I focus in on the game and concentrate on winning. 

My team I play for does not always win but that is fine with me because I believe it takes losing to become better at playing softball. I do not believe that I will ever quit playing softball. I have played some sort of ball, whether it was t-ball or women's league ball, since I was about four years old. While women's ball is one of my favorite things to do, those games are only played during the summer, not the fall. 

Plus, playing co-ed ball allows me and my boyfriend to spend time together because he loves playing ball too.

Real Estate Intervention TV To The Rescue

Authored by Oswaldo Blackburn

I have been contemplating putting my home on the market, but do not want it to sit in a sluggish economy. Seems there is no way out until I was flipping through channels on my satellite TV from www.tvbydirect.com/directv-deal/OHIO-OH-direct-tv.htmlThe HGTV network has a fantastic show called Real Estate Intervention.

The idea behind the show is to take real estate owners on a tour of other homes that are comparable to theirs and take notice of the little differences in the property that can add up to a hefty price increase. Particulars such as installing sumptuous bathrooms and granite kitchens can add value to an older house and significantly increase the asking price.

The Real Estate Intervention TV techniques also work the opposite direction to steer the potential home seller away from unnecessary upgrades that can not be recovered in the sale of the home. For instance, adding a swimming pool is not an automatic upgrade and can cancel out all your potential buyers that do not want a pool.

Live and learn the hard way or check out the Real Estate Intervention TV series for the questions and answers every home seller needs to know. Before you invest one thin dime into your house for sale, have a peek at how the experts evaluate and market an average sized home. If your home is not priced properly, you can kiss the sale goodbye.

Watching the Steelers in Action

Guest Blogger Post by J. Suarez

Since we live just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, my husband and I are huge Pittsburgh Steelers fans. Even though it can be hard to get tickets to Steelers games, my husband and I try to go to as many home games as possible. Not only do we the Steelers as a whole, but we also really like the individual players on the team. On game days, we pack up our tailgating equipment and head to Hines Field.

Once we get to Hines Field, we usually meet some friends in the parking lot for some fun tailgating before the game. Tailgating before the game is almost as much fun as watching the Pittsburgh Steelers in action. The guys in our group of friends usually barbeque chicken and hamburgers, while the girls in our group set up all the deserts, that we made ahead of time, on a card table.

If my husband and I can't get tickets to the game, we always watch the game on our satellite TV from www.expertsatellite.com. Since we enjoy tailgating at the games, when we can't go to the games we always have a cookout before we watch the game. All of our friends hang out on our back deck as we grill food. When it's time to watch the game we just take all the food into our family room and finish eating while the game is on.
