1800flowers is Perfect for Valentine's Day

1800flowers is the only place I go to get flowers for special occasions. And with Valentine's Day approaching, I will definitely be seeking out their services for flowers. 1800flowers has so many arrangements to choose from, and an array of flowers to pick from. They are always reliable, and their website is easy to use. And if I want to place an order over the phone, they have great customer service that is knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to helping me finalize my order.

I know what I am going to get my wife from 1800flowers for Valentine's Day. That's easy. One dozen red roses. That's what I get her every Valentine's Day because roses are her favorite. But this year, I wanted to add something else special to the order because we are having a baby in May and I thought it would be nice to recognize that in some form or fashion on Valentine's Day. My Mom and Dad used to give us Valentine's Day presents when we were kids, and I want to carry on that tradition too and maybe get something for our baby even though he isn't born yet. I bet 1800flowers has just what I'm looking for.

I Need Eyeglasses

I think that it is finally time that I get a pair of eyeglasses. I am having problems with my eyes, especially when I am driving. I feel like I am straining my eyes sometimes when I am in the car for long periods of time, and for my own safety, and for the safety of others on the road with me, I should get a pair of eyeglasses.

My father, who wears eyeglasses when he reads, told me that I should check out to get a pair of eyeglasses. He told me that they have an extensive selection of frames, and that their customer service is excellent. I check it out for myself last night, and he was right. They have so many different name brand frames to choose from, and lots of different styles. And they even have a fashion blog which highlights popular brands and styles, including what celebrities are wearing. So cool. They also have a database of optometrists in my local area so I can go get the proper prescription before placing my order. This is a very convenient way for me to purchase my eyeglasses and find the frames that I want for my first pair of eyeglasses.

Vivek Kundra

34 year old Vivek Kundra, the former chief technology officer for Washington D.C., is now the chief information officer, also known as the CIO, for the United States of America. Vivek Kundra was also a part of President Barack Obama's transition team and responsible for designing the website, which was created to provide information on how stimulus money is being spent.

Vivek Kundra is also known for launching the "Apps for Democracy" contest, which encouraged developers to create applications for the Web and cellular phones that would give Washington D.C. residents access to city data such as crime reports and pothole repair schedules. He expected to get about 10 entries, but instead got 47 apps in one month. Rather than hiring contract developers to create the applications, he spent $50,ooo on the contest and prize money. This saved him over 2.6 million dollars in spending costs for the project.
