Veteran's Day Tribute

I've always been patriotic; I guess it really started around 1990 when the first Gulf War started. I remember being 13, sitting in front of the TV with my family the night Baghdad was bombed and being scared to death. I had never lived through a war at the time; like many my age at the time, we were sure they were going to attack us right back. Over time, I discovered a love for the American Soldier; a respect for what they were doing to protect our country, our freedoms, our way of life. Even today, I'm still amazed at the fact there are men and women who are willing to face death, risk losing limbs, becoming disfigured, in an unknown country. I can honestly say, I don't have the guts to do that; but, I am so honored to know people who do. I'm fortunate to have met many veterans during my life; from WW2 to the present day wars. I get so emotional when I hear all the heroic tales, funny stories, and the many not so funny stories they wish they could forget.  I have

New Review : The Slice™ Safety Cutter - Great For Couponers!

If you have ever read any of my previous reviews, you  know that I give my honest opinions of those products; I either love them or hate them, and will tell you so. The Slice Safety Cutter is one of those products that I LOVE!!!  I'm not much of a couponer, but I do occasionally find a few that I will put to use. The Slice Safety Cutter may change that for me; this is by far one of the best slicers I have ever used. When I first opened the package I thought I had a faulty product, I couldn't find any semblance of a blade except a tiny microscopic blip at the tip. I thought, well maybe that is it; so I got a piece of paper and sure enough, it quickly cut right though. I feel in love; and began thinking of all the possibilities of use for this product. If you are a couponer, you will never want to use scissors again after trying out The Slice. It cuts out coupons in the fraction of a time that it takes using scissors; this is also great if you have kids and don't want scisso

The Great UGLee Pen! Review and Giveaway

The UGLee Pen is a revolutionary ergonomic pen that is designed, created and used by a real physician. This Doctor-inspired grip pen is redefining the way people view pens and writing. The UGLee Pen is good for everyone who writes (even just a grocery list), and is especially helpful to people who experience pain and discomfort when writing, for example those with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.,. It's also the best writing utensil  for children who are learning to write and are developing fine motor skills, as well as helpful for special-needs children who find holding a pen or pencil properly difficult. And for high-school and college students who have to take copious notes, this pen helps keep hands and fingers from cramping. I recieved 3 Uglee Pens for reviewing and giving my honest opinion about this product. They're certainly different in other pens in look and feel. The pens I recived were dark green and kind of resembled a grenade; I thought that was cute,

New Review and Giveaway-Prefense Non-Alcohol Hand Santizer lasts 24 hours!

    Congrats comment #33-Lisa, she is the winner of this giveaway ! Thanks for all who entered! More giveaways coming up, hope you will check them out.  I had the privilege of reviewing Prefense Non-Alcohol sanitizer recently and now I'm offering one lucky reader the chance to win this great product also.     I have 4 kids, as well as, work as a substitute teacher; needless to say, sanitizer has become a way of life for me. I usually keep a small bottle in my purse and in my bathroom at home as a way of keeping germs at bay; with kids it seems they catch everything going around, so one can never be to safe.        I'm sure most of you are familiar with the typical hand santizer....runny, stong smelling, and leaving your hands feeling dry. No matter what brand you purchase, its all the same; or at least that's what I thought. I recently received a bottle of Prefense Non-Alcohol Hand Sanitizer for reviewing and was pleasantly surprised to find that this product has broke
