Diet Pills

Over the years diet pills have become quite popular! Everywhere I turn, it seems I'm hearing about how great they are. And, although I've never tried them...I do believe that they probably do work for certain people. I'm not sure if they always work for everyone, but it does help to have so many choices. For instance, did you know they have an african mango diet pill? I think it sounds really neat. I'm sure it makes it easier for people to find the right one for them.

Outdoor Updates

Over the years we've been doing a lot to the inside and the outside of our home. It's fun to update with paint colors, light fixtures, etc. I never thought I'd enjoy the outdoor part as much as I have...but we've enjoyed planting new flowers and plants as well as adding the decor with outdoor lighting and other things. It's amazing how just a little change can make such a difference. It really doesn't take a lot of money to slowly transform a home. I'm loving it!

Our Granddaughter

From the time our granddaughter was just a year old, she's been little miss social. She loves to talk and play, which is why she has especially been enjoying her Awana cubbies every week during the school year. She likes to interact with kids her age and has made many friends. It's fun to hear her sing the songs and also about all the fun games and activities they do to encourage these little ones' love for God.

With the school year coming to an end, Awana must end too. This week they had an awards banquet and she was so excited to receive her 'diploma'. I wish we could have been there to celebrate with her!

Farmers insurance review

With the economy wavering over the past few years, many have searched for ways to save money. We found that checking into a farmers insurance review and other insurance companies helped our budget. We have saved over $500 a year and would do it again. It's worth a look.

5th wheel insurance

We have friends that enjoy traveling with a 5th wheel. I often wonder about costs such as 5th wheel insurance. Would it be easy to care for and would it have the space we would want for vacationing. It would definitely be a change from moteling. We just may have to check into it.

Food Talk

There are times at work when we start talking about food. When that happens it is easy to get hungry. It seems like the food talk comes up close to lunch time. It may be a recipe mentioned or a suggestion of where to eat. It might be in reference to where someone had gone out to eat. It doesn't really matter. Even now as I write, I am ready for a yummy meal. It is actually a night when my husband is preparing supper and it is smelling good.

Topamax lawsuit

Over the years I have dealt with migraines. I have doctored and tried different drugs to see if they would help me. Topamax was one of them. It is suppose to try to help prevent migraines. It is also used to treat epileptic patients, to assist in preventing seizures.
Now they are wondering if one of the side effects of this drug could be a certain kind of birth defect. Topamax can result in cleft lip or cleft palate. This defect causes the lip or palate to fail to completely fuse together causing a small notched lip or can also leave an open groove from the roof of the mouth to the nose.

Buying On ebay

I have never sold anything on ebay but have bought several items. Some I have wished that I would not have bothered with but most have been good deals. I really like when I can get free shipping. We recently ordered a leather cover for an ipad. It is very nice. Many of the supposed leather covers weren't actually leather, but a simulated leather. You do have to watch and check in to the items to make sure they are what you want. Oh, by the way, we don't have an ipad. I just figured it was a great deal and I do plan on getting one.


Have you noticed that some on social networking sites, such as facebook, have more friends than anyone could really have? I imagine there are some that have hundreds of friends, or thousands. I know on my site it shows a much lower number. Maybe I need more, do you think? Or maybe some people try to accumulate more friends than they need. That isn't really a good way of putting it. I mean to say that some may try to become 'friends' with others just so they have high numbers even though they aren't really friends. Does that make sense?

Topamax lawsuit

I've been hearing about the Topamax lawsuit. I take interest in this because I was once a user of this drug. Topamax can be taken to help prevent migraines. That is why I used it. It is also given for epileptic patients. Now they are thinking that this drug may have caused cases of cleft lip or cleft palate in some births. The defect is the lip or palate failing to completely fuse together causing a groove that extends from the roof of the mouth to the nose in some cases.
O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath are a law firm. They and their experienced and highly trained staff can assist you at looking into this possible claim. They handle complex product liability claims.

New Tires

When we bought our SUV it was in need of new tires. We checked around for the best price like most people would do. We got the best deal at our local Ford dealer. I was surprised at that but pleased too. It isn't fun to pay that much for tires but if they are in need it is one of those things that must be done.

The Top Five Ingredients of a Successful Super Bowl Party

Guest post from: Mohamed Simon

There are five ingredients that make up a great Super Bowl party. This year, I'll be incorporating all of them so that we can have the best party any of our friends have seen. Here are my top five essentials to throwing a fantastic Super Bowl Party.

1. A Great Television

It's important to have a great television for people to watch the game on. This year, we'll be watching the game on a big screen with satellite TV from, for the optimal viewing experience.

2. Lots of Snack Food

A Super Bowl party just can't be successful without lots of snacks and great food. We'll be serving all the usual favorites like chips, guacamole an! d wings. We also might make chili for everyone.

3. The Right Mix of People

Many people forget this important element, but you want to make sure you have the right mix of people at a Super Bowl party. We'll be inviting friends and some family members, but leaving out co-workers and neighbors who don't always get along.

4. Games to Play

We like to have games for people to play before the game starts at our party, as this gives people something to do beforehand.

5. Plenty of Space

It's also important to have lots of seating space for the game, so that everyone has room and can sit comfortably.

Recently we made tacos for supper. They were so tasty. My husband ate three of them that night and took some to work the next day. They are one of our favorites. We watched the Man vs Food and saw the episode where he ate a huge plate of pancakes. So guess what we had for supper earlier this week? You got it, we had pancakes.


We have friends that looked into colon cleansing products such as thermotox. They actually spent a couple of days at home in order to do this. They felt it helped them physically. It was a cleansing and reviving of their system. I have known others that have done less invasive types of cleansing. There is quite a bit of research one can read about today. So you can be informed before taking on such a thing personally.

Best Testosterone Cream

My nephews are into body building. It's important to them that they take care of their bodies. They watch what they eat and are often found at the gym. They research some of the best testosterone cream and other products on the market. Their goal is to build muscle and strength.

Eagle Watching

We have been seeing more eagles this year than in the past. They are so fun to watch. I don't know if there are more all over or just in our area. They are so magnificent. We have gotten many great pictures too. I hope we continue to see these great birds.

Puriteam Water

Times have sure changed. Years ago we didn't find there to be so much concern for our drinking water. Now we find a Puriteam CT-12 countertop water filter in many homes. Bottled water is a fast growing market as well. It can be a money saver to purchase a tap water filter of some sort or even a drinking water filter. The results are most likely the same.
In using a house water filter it can be a great savings on all of the plastics that are being produced and keeping us planet conscious as well. This Puriteam drinking water filter is priced to sell. At the low cost of $99 you can secure your drinking water right at home.

iPod Touch

My husband got an iPod Touch for Christmas. He had the first version but wanted the newest model. The new one has two cameras where the other one had none. He is happy with it so far. They are a pretty cool device. I haven't had much time to mess with it but from what I have seen, I really like it. In fact, I may even get one for myself.

Tech jobs

Since my youngest son was quite little, he has always taken an interest in technology. He began with taking apart anything electrical and trying to figure out how it worked. Then by middle school he was quite the wiz on a computer. Now he is going for his masters in Software Engineering while working as an engineer for a big company. He loves the tech jobs and all that goes with it!
