Internet in your neck of the woods!

Willy knows about cooking and Willy knows that he gets lots of information from the internet. What Willy did not know was that there were companies out there like wildblue internet who is an internet provider for people who live in rural/remote locations. They believe that just because you live out in the country doesn't mean you should have to have a slow dial-up internet connection!

That is what Willy is talking about. Willy likes to download videos of cooking and politics and lots of good stuff along with recipes and ideas that might show up as interesting. Willy knows what it is like to have slow dial up internet. Willy had it one time. Willy was not a happy camper.

Willy wishes that there had been wildblue internet in his life at that time. Willy was trying to build a website with lots of pictures and Willy could set some pictures to upload and go cook supper, because that is what Willy does, and then come back and the pictures would just be finishing.

The best thing that Willy can say to any of you good country rednecks out there is Lose the Dialup – Satellite High Speed Internet from Wild Blue is Here!

This company gets a big 10-4 From Willy - Now back to Cooking!

Did you ever want to buy gold? Did you ever want to sell gold? Did you ever want to do something and you were not sure what or how to do it? Willy ain't talking about Idaho Gold Potatoes here. Willy is talking about real gold.

Well, Willy has bought and sold gold and Willy has cooked Idaho Gold potatoes. Willy finds that he is better under his own expertise to cook the gold potatoes. Willy did not do as good buying and selling gold on his own. That is why Willy wishes he had known about

Willy has visited there site and they appear to know what they are doing and could probably help someone like Willy buy and sell gold and other coins in a way that could be very productive.

Willy has decided when he cooks Idaho Gold potatoes he is the expertise. However, if Willy decides to buy gold again the expertise might get a call.

2010 Homebuyer Tax Credits - Willy needs this!

Willy needs to know if you are familiar with the newest version of the housing stimulus ? If you are not Willy believes you need to know as much about it as you can. Yes, you may have heard about it last year but did you know it has been extended and amplified.

What do you mean amplified. Well, now even more people are eligible making a great deal in real estate get even better. Some of the facts are as follows:

  • First-time homebuyers, or those who have not owned in the last three years, can receive up to an $8,000 tax credit
  • Homeowners who have lived in a current home consecutively for 5 of the past 8 years can receive up to a $6,500 tax credit
  • There may be no future extensions, so all qualified homebuyers are urged to act and have a written, binding contract by April 30, 2010 (close by June 30, 2010)
  • Income limits are now $125,000 for singles, $225,000 for married couples with a $20,000 phase-out of the credit for both.
So Willy is cooking up the idea that everyone that is thinking about buying a house can't afford to pass this up. Now is the time and now is the place to get after finding that right home and getting the government to give you back a chunk of change when you buy. That can't be beat.

To get more information you might even want to watch the video giving great information about it below.

Willy says that everyone needs to say a big 10-4 To this one.

Eco Mattress Store - and Good Cooking!

Nothing like Willy wanting to put in a good day of cooking or grilling and being to tired to get the job done. Willy has decided that being too tired is something that Willy does not want especially if it can be helped by something as simple as a better mattress.

Yes, you heard Willy right. Willy is not talking about organic food today but Willy is talking about Organic Mattresses and where can Willy get something like that at? Willy can get Eco Friendly Mattresses at the Eco Mattress Store.

How cool is that? Willy could get him one of those mattresses and would probably sleep like the guy in the picture is sleeping? Willy would jump up the next morning ready to cook like only Willy can cook.

All Willy can say to all of that is 10-4.

Willy loves Home Made Tortillas

Local Mexican "Mom & Pop" restaurant makes their own tortillas. The only one that Willy knows of in the local town. Willy likes to eat fajitas or anything they make in the home made tortillas.

Fabys is the name of the restaurant.

Willy likes to pick some up on Friday evening, heat them in microwave for about 20 seconds on Saturday morning and put eggs and sausage in the home made tortillas.

Willy's mouth is watering.

Willy Needs to See Clearly to Cook

Willy sometimes struggles with his eyesight. Some days it is really good and others it is really bad. Willy has glasses but Willy lost them. Willy knows that he needs to get his eyeglasses fixed but Willy just does not want to take the time to get the eye test and all that goes with it along with spending so much time trying on all of those eyeglasses.

Well Willy has found out through an article about how to find inexpensive eyeglasses at Zenni Optical that Willy can get his eyes tested and then go online to Zenni Optical and give them his prescription and get his eyeglasses at a much cheaper cost.

Can you believe that! Pay less and get the same glasses that you would other places and with a great selection to boot. Willy is really feeling good about this because Willy has to go to the eye doctor at the end of the month. As soon as willy gets the old eyes checked, Willy may just ask for the prescription and go right home and go online and look at all of those glasses. Willy will get some real nice glasses for less than the optical store.

That is a good thing and Willy knows it.
