Mashed potatoes and gravy.  Peanut butter and Jelly.  Computers and Anti-virus software.  There are some things that are better when combined with another thing.  You wouldn’t eat a peanut butter sandwich without jelly would you?  You certainly wouldn’t eat mashed potatoes with gravy.  So why would you have a computer without anti-virus software installed?

I can’t count how many times my Norton Anti-virus software saved my computer from viruses that I downloaded when I got my first computer.  Not only did it stop the threat, but it wiped it before it destroyed my computer or emailed my personal information to a hacker.

You couldn’t run a business without anti-virus software, and why would you want to?  You need Norton Small Business by Symantec to keep all of your companies computers safe, especially when you cannot control the websites your employees go to or what files they download.

Norton 360 v5.0 has many more features than Norton Antivirus 2012 and Norton Internet Security 2012 and it’s only $20 more.  You can also get 30% off Norton Small Business Products now so you can save even more money.  You cannot afford to pass that up, can you?  No, I dare say you cannot.

How has Norton helped you with your security issues?  Please let me know by leaving a comment telling me which version of the software would most benefit you and why.  I would love to hear your feedback.

A Good Breakfast for Energy

When I make breakfast for myself in the morning, it’s usually a bowl of cereal.  If we don’t have any milk for whatever reason I usually moan and stomp my feet like a child before nuking myself some oatmeal.  Or I might begrudgingly put my clothes on and go to the grocery store. This morning was different because I wanted to actually make a real breakfast.

Last night I decided that I wanted to make some hash browns for myself this morning so I bought a bag of potatoes from the grocery store with our dinner ingredients and got the food processor out to shred them.  Of course I peeled them first before shredding them and they were small enough that I could just stick them in the food processor.  Normally I have to cut things up but those bags of potatoes are always tiny so that was perfect.

After I shredded about 6 I put them into these containers that I also bought at the store to store them in all night.  A friend told me to put water in them to remove the starch to keep them from turning brown and sure enough when I went to do that they were all brown.  Before bedtime I went in there and drained them all and rinsed them all off and put them back in their containers with more water and I’m glad I did because they were still brown so changing the water was a good thing I think.

This morning I got up, grabbed my Big City Slider Station and filled each compartment with sausage so I could have some sausage patties, put 3 slices of bacon in the skillet to cook and when those were all finished I put 2 slices of bacon on the plate, 2 sausage sliders and then I put all the rest in a container for another time.

I took the hash browns out of the fridge and put them in the salad spinner to get the moisture out then put them in the bacon grease.  Ok I know now that I should have used margarine or oil.  Coulda shoulda woulda.  When that was finished I scrambled 2 eggs and put cheese on top of the eggs.

I was going to take a picture but it was very sloppy and too embarrassing but I will tell you that it was very good.  It was a very rare occasion that I would ever make that kind of breakfast and I can’t say I will ever do it again but you never know.

What am I going to do with the remainder of the hash browns though?  I’m thinking that maybe I can put some butter in the big city slider station then roll up some of the hash browns and stuff them in there and see how that works out.  Then I can put them in the container with the sausages and have some hash brown sliders whenever I want.  I could also freeze them for later.

The reason I did all of this is because I really needed the energy for today because I have 61 posts to restore today from March 2009 and I’m getting so burnt out on the whole thing.  Coffee just isn’t cutting it anymore, I figured I needed a real breakfast to get me through this day.

That kind of breakfast is good but so bad but it was so worth it.

Slim Fast Optima

I was very happy when I found out that Slim Fast Optima had an appetite suppressant that lasted 4 hours because I needed an appetite suppressant. I’m usually so hungry all the time and I needed something that would keep me from eating all the time so I can lose some weight. However, I was most unhappy to find that I was unable to go to sleep at night.

I would take a sleeping pill and it wouldn’t even take effect at all. I would end up taking another one and still nothing. I would take 4 sleeping pills and still no effect and it would keep me up until 3 or 4am and I would be laying in bed wishing I could go to sleep but I had so much energy even at 4am. This stuff is like speed lol.

However I didn’t put 2 and 2 together right away, I had no idea it was the slim fast until I stopped using the slim fast all day yesterday and I was able to go to sleep last night with no problems. And today around 6pm I got sleepy so I took a nap and was asleep until 9pm. Which is good because I missed dinner.

Well, I wanted to because we ate Hometown Buffet for lunch and I ate more than I should have. I had a salad and then my 2nd plate I had roast beef, turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy and corn. Then I had a little bowl of non fat ice cream with a little piece of mousse which I couldn’t eat all of because I was so full. I guess I will try to lay off the Slim Fast for a while or maybe take it early in the morning for breakfast and then again for lunch then that’s it for the rest of the day, see if that helps.
