C1

      Have you seen the Cortana commercial where the people are sitting around in group therapy? Just in case you haven't I have posted it (above).

CCM Scape 1

  My family and I live in a teeny, tiny condo. I think it's karma for something bad I did in another life or something. I NEED more space. Not just because we are tripping over each other in our home, but because I love to entertain and decorate for the holidays and seasons. It's hard to do when you live in a "shoebox" and don't have a yard. Oh … [More...]

Our dog Espn at Banfield Animal Hospital for a check up and vaccinations including ProHeart 6 heartworm injection.

Unlikely Heroes

  I am a huge animal lover. I love all kids of animals. I would own a zoo and a farm if at all possible. For now I'm happy with our "mini-zoo" which consists of five cats, a dog and two fish. We also feed a wild bunny that lives in our condo complex. I have always had animals in my life - both big and small. I grew up with several dogs, cats, … [More...]

Be the most popular house on the block this Halloween with Justin’s White Chocolate confections

Justins White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup

  I have a weakness for chocolate, especially when it's combined with peanut butter. I could literally eat chocolate and peanut butter all day long - every day! I don't think I would ever get sick of it. I haven't yet. :-) When my kids were still into trick-or-treating I would lay claim to every chocolate and peanut butter candy they received … [More...]

Movie Review: Don’t Blink

037117034789;canvasHeight=500

  Now available on DVD is the psychological thriller Don't Blink. I'm a fan of horror movies. Some might consider Don't Blink to fit in the horror genre, but if you ask me this is more of a psychological thriller and suspense film. Don't Blink stars Mena Suvari, Brian Austin Green, Joanne Kelly, David de Lautour, Leif Gantvoort, Emelie … [More...]

Celebrity Spokespeople vs. REAL People

Cherry red summer apple isolated on white

  Do you ever watch television and see a celebrity pushing a product or service and wonder "Why him/her?" For example, Tommy Lee Jones promoting Ameriprise Financial and Catherine Zeta-Jones trying to get you to sign up for T-Mobile. I wouldn't associate these people with the things they are trying to sell you. In fact, I am never swayed by celebrity … [More...]
