I love the Internet

Good morning.
We are getting a tiny taste of spring. Our daytime temps have been near 50. We still have quite a bit of snow on the ground since it was so deep and the nights have been in the 20's. But the milder days are giving us hope.
I spent a lot of yesterday online. Don't you just love having the Internet?
First, I was checking bank interest rates in the area. We have a CD maturing next week. It looks like we'll put it in money market account. Cd rates are miserable. From a low 3.5% for a 5 year, to a measly 1.75% for a 1 year. I can get 2% in a money market so I'll set it there until (if ever) rates start to rise. I feel for people who are trying to live on their CD's interest.
Then I placed an online order for Salon supplies.
Next, we were looking for things to do on our first trip, which will be down near Detroit. We decided if the weather isn't accommodating for outside biking/hiking, we'll do the Ikea store in Canton, about 15 minutes south of the campground. Craig also wants to go to the Camping World store which is about 10 miles south of Ikea. And as our first trip tradition, we'll eat KFC for dinner the first night so I had to plot that on the map also. I would have preferred Popeye's, but there isn't one nearby.
So hopefully in the next few weeks, once the snow is finally gone, we can back the mo-ho out of it's winter parking spot, and start getting it ready for the season. Can't wait! About 6 weeks till our first trip!
I've also been busy downloading and installing new games on my laptop, so I'll have something to do in the morning on our trips, since lazy bones likes to sleep in.
And for dinner, Craig made a delicious stuffed meat loaf!

This was all that was left. He stuffed it with shredded Cheddar cheese and spinach. For the rest of the pics and recipe, it's here.

And we watched the movie 2012. Don't bother, it's really a lame film. Barely watchable.

And that's all I got for now!
