PGPhaseLogo

  Let's face it, the holiday season is a crazy time of the year. You have to fight for a parking spot at the mall, stand on long lines at the mall to purchase gifts, deal with in-laws, unexpected guests, tinsel all over the place, running out of tape when wrapping gifts, the onslaught of bills... the list goes on and on. Don't get me wrong - … [More...]

  It's officially the start of winter. Thankfully we've only had one snow storm thus far (and in a perfect world that will be the only one for the season).

GhostTunes - ghost only

  I'm a mom. It's probably the hardest, yet most rewarding, job anyone could ever have. Who knew that you could love someone with every fiber of your being as you do your children. You don't have to give birth to a child to be a mom. I know that from experience. When I was around 18 months old my biological mother abandoned me. She literally … [More...]

8 ways to protect the value of your car this winter (giveaway ends 12/31/14)

Winter Driving

  Many of us will be going "over the river and through the woods" as well as "dashing through the snow" to visit family and friends this holiday season. Our minds are on gift giving, shopping, good food and great times. The one thing I'm sure most people are not thinking about this time of the year is their car and car maintenance. The winter … [More...]

Protect your home and family with HealthySole

HealthySole

  I wouldn't consider myself a "germophobe," but I do worry about what germs are floating around my home and settling in on the places we touch most (door knob, light switches, toilet handle, faucet, fridge door...). My kids are teenagers and they know the importance of washing their hands and know not to put their hands near their faces. Even … [More...]

Take building to a whole new level with Brackitz

1

  Building toys are very popular with most children whether it's blocks or LEGO bricks. There is just something fundamentally fun about building things. When I was a young girl I LOVED to play with my Playskool plastic bricks. They were like LEGOS in a way. I would play with them for hours on end building houses and skyscrapers. I wish they … [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...]

For example, February 28, 2014 is National Pancake Day. This coming Saturday (January 4, 2014) is National Spaghetti Day. There are also weekly and monthly observances.
