Time for VGNO. Click the banner above to join too. Ann's question tonight is how did you meet the love of your life?

I met my husband actually through my sister. My sister lived across the street from my husband's brother. They knew each other for at least 20 years. When I met my husband, he actually had moved in with his brother (my husband actually had just gone through a divorce). My sister had a Memorial Day Party, and we met during that. Which was 1992. And our 15th Wedding Anniversary was June 10.

Have a nice weekend! I am off to my daughter's dance recital tomorrow!

Great Summer Read For Kids


I just found out about a book called Chin and the Magic Stones. This is a great summer read for kids 7-11 years old.

The book is a fun adventure and is a great book for kids just getting into fantasy books. In this book kids will find themselves engaged in the riddles and magic of the book. They will want to read it to the very end to see what the next adventure will be.

Chin and the Magic Stones has a very positive message for kids. It will teach them that if they trust themselves and keep a positive attitude then it can result in positive happenings for them. Kids will not get bored with the book's messages, though, because they are masked in fantasy and magic, that will keep kids interested.

Another interesting thing about this book is that the main character is a boy. Many other books for kids in the ages of 7-11 have girls in the leading role of the book. But this book actually is a little different and unique by having a boy in the leading role.

The book is also getting good reviews from readers. On the books website and Amazon, the book has gotten a lot of positive reviews. I'm sure you know how important reading is for kids, so this is a great book to check out. Especially now during the summer months when kids are looking for a good book that will keep their interest. Check out this book today!

My Girlfriend's Wedding

I found out recently a girlfriend of mine is getting married in October. I bet she is trying to find some diamonds for the rings.

I found a great website called Blue Nile. They have over 70,000 diamonds to choose from. They are the largest online retailer of diamonds.

If you order a diamond before 3 pm, they will ship the loose diamond to you next day FedEX for free. And if you want the diamond in a setting it will be shipped within 2-3 days.

Blue Nile has terrific service, prices and selection. I think I better let my friend know about this website soon!

Happy Father's Day

6-21-2009 4;50;56 PM

This is a picture of my Dad, or technically "step-dad." But my sister's and I actually always called him by his first name - Lenny.

This isn't a very good picture of him, but the best I could do at short notice. Lenny was the best dad in the world. My mom married him when I think I was in 5th grade.

He was a man who wore many hats. He was a Korean War Veteran, a Fire Fighter, a Plumber, an Electrician, a Mason, A Shriner and a Shriner's Clown! (someday I'll post some pictures of him dressed as a Shriner's Clown). And so much more!

Sadly Lenny, passed away almost 16 yrs. ago from ALS - better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. I miss him like crazy, I loved him so much.

So Father's Day is a little bitter-sweet for me. My husband had a good Father's day, and received gifts from the kids. But in the back of my mind I am always wishing my dad was here too.

Happy Father's day to all the Dad's out there!

Get Rid Of Those Annoying Mosquitoes!

It's raining again today. We have had a lot of rain this month. One thing I know is that this rainy weather is perfect for mosquitoes.

Last week while we were camping, we were having some major mosquito attacks. Even in my backyard while I'm gardening, or the kids are in the pool, we are getting bitten by mosquitoes. I really feel like it is going to be a bad year, and we are going to have a mosquito problem.

Not only are they annoying, but nowadays you really have to worry about diseases. There has been in the past some cases of West Nile disease around here and even EEE (Eastern Equine Encephalitis).

The solution may be mosquito traps. I found a website for the Mosquito Magnet. It traps mosquitoes and other biting insects that are breeding in your yard. Check out their website and their video for more information on how it works. This could really help to have a safe & fun summer without worrying about those pesky mosquitoes.

Camera Critters #10

Last week when we were camping, we saw a Mama Duck and her babies. They seemed to only come up to the beach a little later in the day, probably because there were less people around. I tried to snap a bunch of pictures. This is the best one that came out. Unfortunately I think the batteries were super low on my camera, and the rest came out either blurry or too dark.

BluFrog - The Healthy Energy Drink

A while back, around St. Patrick's Day to be exact, I wrote a post about receiving some "goodies" in the mail. Well one of the things in the package was some BluFrog Energy Drink.

Well I had taken a picture of the package and a t-shirt I had gotten. But unfortunately I didn't snap a picture of the BluFrog at the time. So I don't have that to share with you now. But I received two cans of BluFrog Energy Drink.

I tried one after it chilled in the fridge for awhile, and it tasted great! My husband actually brought the other can to work. He gave it to someone he works with, a man there that really loves energy drinks. He tried it, and said he really liked it. It gave him a boost of energy to keep working.

BluFrog is different from other energy drinks too, because it is filled with loads of vitamins. Some of the vitamins in it, for example are, B1, B12, Folate, and many more. It also contains real fruit, and has lower carbs and calories, then a lot of other energy drinks do.

BluFrog is also having a really cool contest going on right now. Check their website for more information on how to enter. Do it now! Because the prizes include a trip for 2, there are 4 different locations for the trips. You could also win a game package that includes an XBox360 Elite Gaming system, with some other loot included too.

So check out BluFrog for more details on the contest, and how you can get a hold of some of this awesome energy drink.

VGNO - Uh Oh Better Call Maaco

VGNO (or virtual girls night out) time again. If you want to join or find out more info, head over to Ann's blog @ Ann Again ... and again.


I'm somewhat in a bad mood. While I was grocery shopping someone in the parking lot hit my car. They actually made some sort of announcement in the store, but I totally ignored it thinking it couldn't be me.

When I finally came out of the store, a young girl was in her car next to mine. She had hit the drivers side of my car. She said a kid had run out behind her car when she was pulling out, so to avert him she ended up hitting my car.

To make a long story short, they don't want to call their insurance, because, I think she was a teenager. And her mother showed up and wants us not to go through the insurance. Whatever! As long as they pay me what ever the damages are!

Anywho - Ann wanted to know if you were ever told you look like a celebrity. When I was in High School a guy I know always said I sounded like Stevie Nicks. And then a few yrs. ago a Dental Assistant that was cleaning my teeth told me I reminded her of someone from the movie "You've Got Mail." Not Meg Ryan she said, but the girl who played her friend in the movie. I had no idea. When I got home I looked who was in that movie. All I could find out was Paker Posey. Don't ask me!?

Reggie Needs Dinovite

This is my in laws dog Reggie. He is such a cutie. He is so gentle and really good with the kids. But as you can see he has a lot of fur.

With all this fur, he sheds a lot. This is evident, by the fact, that every time I leave their house I have dog hairs all over me. Well I just went to a website called Dinovite, and answered some questions in the solutions center about Reggie.

What I know about Reggie's diet, is that my in-laws mostly feed him table food. That is leftovers from their meals. They rarely feed him regular dog food. So according to the Dinovite website, what could be causing Reggie's shedding is he is suffering from a fairly common nutritional deficiency.

I also learned that dogs should not, no matter their breed, shed year round. They are only supposed to shed twice a year. So what is missing is nutrients in their diet that they need to be healthy. And Dinovite can fill this gap that Reggie(or your dog) is missing.

What they suggested was a Dinovite Canine Bundle, which will provide the digestive enzymes, Direct Fed Microbials and delicate nutrients to help Reggie be healthy. Dinovite will help Reggie nutritionally by aiding digestion and the absorption of delicate nutrients supporting his immune system.

Dinovite also has products to stop itching in dogs, dog with bad odors or smelling bad, along with shedding problems.

I'm going to recommend Dinovite as soon as possible to my in-laws. If you want to get a detailed report about solutions for your dog visit their website now!

Baby Formula And A Contest

When my kids where born, I was unable to breastfeed them. I did for my son, but only for 2 weeks, then I had to feed him formula. My daughter was only given formula from day one.

Since then baby formulas have improved even more. A great formula I found out about is called Comforts for Baby formula. And one thing I remember from my children's pediatrician is that it is important to feed your baby formula for their first year of life. And Comforts for Baby formula is fortified with vitamins and nutrients essential for baby's first year.

Comforts for Baby formula also contains lactose which occurs naturally in breast milk. And it is manufactured to FDA standards.

There is also a fun contest going on! Comforts for baby has a cute firefly as their product mascot. You can help name the firefly and if you win you will win a $10,000 scholarship! My choice for a name would be Flutter the Firefly! I think that would be a cute name. If you have a good name for the firefly then enter the contest. What do you have to lose? And you could win a $10,000 scholarship if your name is chosen.


WW #60 "Camping Pictures"

Here is a short slide show of some pictures I took on our camping trip. We went camping last Friday-Sunday. Friday and Saturday were beautiful. We were able to go swimming and have a lot of fun doing other stuff. Unfortunately, Sat. night it started raining around 8 pm, into most of the day Sunday. We usually like to hang around Sunday a little, but we had to cut it short due to the rain. We still had a really good time.

Mellow Yellow Monday #9

Here's some flowers that are growing along a fence in my yard. Once again I am at a loss for what they are called. But they come up every year, and I actually get a bigger patch of them every year too.

And every year my husband threatens to mow them down with the lawn mower. I guess because they are in his mowing path.

Find A Mesothelioma Lawyer

The risk of getting cancer from asbestos is great. If there is exposure to asbestos then you could form a type of cancer called mesothelioma. This is a very dangerous form of lung cancer.

Mesothelioma is most common among workers in certain jobs. Some of these jobs include shipbuilding industry, construction, auto mechanics, contractors, and demolition. Workers who are diagnosed with this can really have devastating consequences for both them and their families.

People who have mesothelioma may be entitled to compensation. And the best way to get that is with an aggressive Mesothelioma Lawyer. Having a good lawyer can make a difference. This because many manufactures of asbestos have gone bankrupt over the years. And only an experienced lawyer can get victims of this type of cancer get the compensation they deserve.

It has also been found that, like many other dangerous products over the years, that the manufactures of asbestos knew about it's dangers before they revealed it to the public. As a result of this thousands of people were needlessly exposed to asbestos.

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with mesothelioma then please consider contacting a lawyer. You may be entitled to compensation that you deserve. Don't hesitate, look into it today!

Tired Of Computer Slow Downs?

As many of you may know, from reading my blog, about 6 months ago I had some serious computer problems. Unfortunately the only solution was to buy a new computer.

My computer is running great. And I'm pretty happy with it so far. The only regret I have is not buying more memory with it. Computer techs will charge $50 or more to check your computer and sell you more memory.

But a program, I found out about called speed for windows doesn't charge for technical support. They also don't have to service your computer, so they don't have to come to you and you don't have to bring your computer anywhere.

All you have to do follow some simple instructions and in 30 seconds your computers productivity will increase by 500%! For a one time fee of $12.95 you will receive a powerful program for your work or home computer.

One of the benefits of this program is you will be able to open as many programs you want at the same time. I don't know about you, but I could really use that. Another thing it will help with is attachments. You will be able to upload and download them 20 times faster with this program.

It will also make your Internet experience more fun. You will be able to browse the Internet 10 times faster. Sometimes my computer freezes up. This could put an end to that!

VGNO - Fishing!


Tomorrow is "Free Fishing" day in NH. I love fishing but it would cost me $70.00 to get my husband and I a license. We used to get licences but now with kids we don't really go enough to make it worth it. And kids 16 and under fish free anyway. But tomorrow I'm going fishing cause it's free! Whoo-hoo! I'm excited anyway.

The only drink for fishing is beer! Probably will get some Coors light for later!

Here's a cool song I found called Beer, Bait & Ammo! Cool!

wanted to know what your favorite flower is. I love all flowers so that's hard to say. It made me think of this crazy tree I saw when I went to the bank though. It had white fuzzy things all over it, they were blowing all over the place. It looked like it was snowing. The fuzzy stuff was covering the grass - big time! It looked like snow! I have no idea what kind of tree it was. I'll have to Google it.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Thursday Thirteen #26 "Clothes Line"

I decided almost a month ago, that I wanted to start drying the clothes outside. I used to do it when I lived in the country, which was almost 10 years ago. But haven't done it since living where I do now.

Here are 13 things I have discovered since drying the clothes on a clothes line. Some pros and some cons.

1. Drying clothes on a line will help the environment. No greenhouse gas emissions from the dryer.

2. Save money. I read online that: the average clothes dryer will cost approximately $1,530 to operate over its lifespan, which lasts, on average, about 18 years.

3. The clothes smell great! I noticed the clothes smell fresh and clean off the line, more then when you use the dryer.

4. The clothes come out like they were starched & with less wrinkles.

5. Eliminates static cling that the dryer can cause.

6. The clothes dry a lot faster then I thought they would.

7. It gets you outside and you can enjoy being outdoors.

8. I also read online that line drying is easier on your clothes. It will help reduce wear and tear on the seams.

9. I also found out that the sun can help kill bacteria on the clothing.

A few cons are:

10. It is a little more time consuming then just throwing stuff in the dryer.

11. You are dependent on the weather ~ You have to obviously know if it's going to rain or not.

12. Can only do one maybe two loads a day (hey that could maybe be a pro)

13. Have to remember to take them off the line. Sometimes I forget about it and have to go out there late to get them, when I may be too lazy or tired - lol!

Check HERE and HERE for more info on Line Drying.

Cute Maternity Clothes

I just found a great maternity clothes website. It's called Kiki's Fashions. And there is really a lot of cute maternity clothes on their website.

I remember when I was pregnant, how hard it was to find cute maternity clothes. I wish I could have purchased some things back then from Kiki's Fashions. Their maternity clothes are really unique. And the great thing is that they are at really good prices too.

They really differ from other maternity clothes. They are so stylish and trendy, unlike the typical boxy maternity clothes you find elsewhere. Kiki's Fashions also rotates their selection often so there is always something new to choose from.

And right now you can get a discount at Kiki's on your purchase. Just use the coupon code "blogfriends" at checkout and you will receive 20% off!

And here she is an official Junior Girl Scout.
