They speak […]

Easy Feeding with Baby Dipper

Samsung Propel from AT&T

When we moved in July to (what I call Mayberry. LOL!) a smaller populated town, our cell phone service would not work. Well, it would, and then it wouldn’t. Come find out, our service was bouncing from tower to tower, from one service company to another. We had to switch and I still am not […]

Christmas For Payatas

I have never really considered us ‘lucky’ in our life, up until I read about Christmas For Payatas.

Hence, entire […]

Norton Tune Up

I love my computer. Love it. Love them. I mostly use my laptop, so when I have an opportunity to get it back ‘to new’, my ears are fully open. I am pretty computer savvy and usually run check ups, clean and restore what needs to be done, but when there is a bit of […]

Barbie Care ‘N Cure

Kambry isn’t quite old enough to understand some toys just yet, but watching her big brother, I do believe this is showing her and helping her learn. I had to try out the Barbie™ “Care N’ Cure” Snow Leopard just for this reason. Tucker loves to show his little sister how to care and love […]

POS systems

Who doesn’t like a bargain? When I am about to buy a product, I always look around online and get as much information about that product that I can. With POS systems, I found that they have so many mobile printers, barcode scanners and so much more and for a fraction of the cost that […]
