New Year’s Eve is approaching fast and I just realized that I need to make plans. Of course Jennie and I have been getting a lot more serious and it is obvious that she is expecting that I should make a proposal rather soon. It seems as though this is the best time for it and I am thinking about how to make it special. I was afraid that I may have waited too long for calling the limo places, but after a few tries I went to www.limoservicemississauga.org and found a stretch limo I was looking for. Of course since it is just her and me, I did not see the sense in spending a huge sum of money on something ridiculously large. Continue Reading →
I’ve always enjoyed working as a painter in Bergen County NJ. There’s something special about being able to bring a slice of color into someone’s life. We take for granted how much color impacts us on a day to day level. Imagine a day where you were not submerged into the multitude of rainbows that is our daily comings and goings. From the traffic lights to the clothes we wear. From the blasting of advertising all around us to the natural colors of flowers, trees and sky. We live in a world of color and without it, we can quickly become depressed.
That’s something which baffles me whenever I think about the days of being in high school. If there is one place that I’ve found to be lacking in true color it would have to be the local high schools. Continue Reading →
For people who live in remote or rural locations, broadcast television is often limited. The VHF and UHF signals that broadcast television emits are picked up by antenna, however remote or rural locations often are not conducive to a strong signal. There’s the option of cable, however many of the remote or rural locations do not have access to cable television. Today, people who live in these areas have an option for quality viewing and that’s direct TV packages. Satellite TV is created through a communications satellite that is in fixed orbit above the earth. A viewer signs up with a satellite service. By paying for the satellite service they are then able to receive the satellite programming. Only those who pay for the service are able to receive the programming. Continue Reading →
After living most of my life in one of the largest cities in the country, I am very watchful when it comes to security and safety. Friends from small towns find it odd when they come to visit and I tell them to keep my home’s door locked at all times. I also tell them to be aware of their surroundings, too. When my hubby said we were moving to Delaware, he pointed out that we could get Delware ADT if I really wanted it. But he also pointed out that the state has a small population, and the city we would be living in there would not have the high crime that the large city we lived in for so long has had.
I pondered what my husband had told me. We were told we would need to pay all of our own moving costs, so we really needed to save money. Not only that, I was giving up my job and would need to find a new one once we settled in. That means that even less money would be coming in for awhile. Continue Reading →
Butterfield Books Inc. releases four audio books about pioneer Swedish immigrants, narrated by Ann M. Richardson. These books are from the Planting Dreams and Butter in the Well book series written by Linda K. Hubalek.
Lindsborg, Kansas (PRWEB) December 30, 2013
Butterfield Books Inc. has released four audio books about pioneer Swedish immigrants, narrated by Ann M. Richardson. These books, Planting Dreams, Cultivating Hope, and Harvesting Faith are from the Planting Dreams series, and Prairie Bloomin’ is from the Butter in the Well book series. These audio books were written by Linda K. Hubalek and are available at Amazon, Audible, and iTunes. These pioneer fiction books are based on the author’s ancestors journey from Sweden and their homesteading years on the Kansas prairie.
“Ms. Richardson has done an excellent job of narrating my books. It’s very rewarding to hear my ancestors come alive through these audio books. It’s like I’m getting to meet my great great grandparents in person. My ancestors homesteaded in Kansas in 1869, and now they are telling me their life story through Ann’s words,” said author Linda Hubalek.
Ann Marie (Arvdal) Richardson, discovered her love of narrating in 2008, while volunteering for Learning Ally (formerly known as Recording For the Blind and Dyslexic). Since then she has been narrating professionally, and all of her books are available online.
Growing up on a farm in Nebraska fostered in her a deep love of the prairie and the people who farm there. Her father immigrated to Nebraska from Sweden in the 1960’s; she visits her many relatives in Sweden every few years, and is conversant in Swedish.
Ann Marie is an active member of the VASA Order of America, District 17, Lindbergh Lodge #494. Her history of growing up in the rural Midwest with Swedish customs and work ethics, gives her a unique connection with Hubalek’s writing.
