Dog Star Contest/Giveaway

Posted on December 23, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide Giveaways sweepstakes

In honor of the New Year dog lovers across the United States, best-selling author Jeff Lazarus of Dogtology is hosting a casting call for all dog and cat lovers to have a chance for their furry friend to be featured on nationally syndicated TV, Pet Pals TV, which can be seen in more than 6 million homes in the U.S.

Three pet parents will get to have their furry friend featured on an episode of Pet Pals TV, a nationally-syndicated television program to highlight how our furry friends make our lives a little extra special. All submissions will be shared on the Social Media Pages of Pet Pals TV and Dogtology and must be photos of the pets only.

To enter please submit a photo and/or video and tell us why your dog is the head of the household by visiting the website: http://www.dogtology.com/

Please note that the more outlandish and quirky the better!) Your pet could have the chance to be make a TV appearance and featured on Pet Pals TV and/or a Social Media Star having their photo shared on the following social media pages: https://www.facebook.com/Dogtology/ and https://www.facebook.com/PetPalsTV.

Chew on this. As humans, we have a deep need to believe . . . a need to relate to something greater and more ideal than ourselves. Perhaps that’s why so many millions believe in Dog. Man’s devotion to Dog has come to rival the great -isms and -ologies of the world. This thing has gone way beyond a hobby. We may not literally worship dogs, but we come pawfully
close. This rabid reverence for Rover has a name: Dogtology.

Dogtology is for the dog lover who has bailed on a date because they didn’t want Twinkles to be left home alone. It is for the human whose dog owns a more festive holiday wardrobe than they do, whose pups dine on free-range bison burgers while they live off ramen, or whose smartphones have more photos of their dog than of the humans in their family. In this sacred dogtrine, the case is made that Dogtology has become a bone-a-fide belief system on par with the world’s great philosophies and religions.

My Little Pony The Movie

I received the My Little Pony Movie last night.  And, though I have a 6 year old, boy, he sat down and watched it.  He loved it.  I can’t believe how cute it was.  Like the box says, “Discover a different breed of hero”.

Cave Tools Never Disappoint

Posted on December 17, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide Reviews

I received a burger press from Cave Tools, and it is fantastic.  My burgers are always the same size, so cook evenly.  We love Cave Tools, and shop with them often.

Cave Tools has so many great products, including the Burger Press.  You can even download a free Barbecue Recipe Book, and print it out.  Great recipes that will help make any cook out fun.  You even get 200 free burger papers.  You can make your burgers ahead, and freeze them, with the burger papers.  They won’t even stick.  I’ve tried this, and it works like a charm.  I love that the little grooves are in each burger, as well.

Make sure you check out the Burger Press, as well as all the other great products at Cave Tools.  It makes grilling a whole lot easier.

My husband really enjoys making burgers now, for the grill.  He says it’s a matter of seconds, and he’s gotten 5 or 6 burgers out.  He loves grilling, even though we live in Pennsylvania, and it’s cold right now.

Tangled: Queen For A Day

Posted on December 16, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide kids Reviews

Tangled:  Queen For A Day would be a great DVD for that special little girl, in your life.  Tangled is one of my favorite Disney movies, so when I found out about this DVD, I had to get it.  I watched it with my 6 year old, son, and he really enjoyed it as well.  There’s really nothing that says boys can’t watch too!  It really has a great story line, for the little ones.  And, it’s a series, so there is more to come.

 

Tangled: Queen For A Day will keep your child quiet, for a short period of time.  Not saying TV is a babysitter, but if you are going to watch too, be able to watch uninterrupted.

This would be a great added Christmas gift, this year.

 

When King Frederic and Queen Arianna go out of town to celebrate their anniversary, Rapunzel becomes QUEEN FOR A DAY! It may be her first turn as a leader, but Rapunzel is confident ’cause she’s got this! However, when a terrible blizzard threatens Corona and her parents, the Princess is faced with some gut-wrenching decisions! Can Rapunzel and her friends save the day? Bursting with action, music and fun, this thrilling adventure will blow you away!

HydraLight is an amazing Flashlight/Lantern

Posted on December 16, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide Reviews

I love HydraLight!  I couldn’t wait to try it out, so I immediately opened it, and started figuring out what to do.  It was easy.  You unwrap the power source, and dip it in water for 7 – 10 seconds  (that was easy!), then you take and vigorously shake the power source (to get the excess water off of it), and insert back into the Flashlight/Lantern.  Next step is easy, you Power On.  This Lantern will make so many things, in life, easier.

I showed the HydraLight to Joe, my husband, and he was amazed at how bright this light truly is.  He said “this flashlight, and Lantern, will be a lifesaver in the future.”  I agreed.  If we get a flat tire, at night, this Lantern will make it easy for him to change the tire.  Especially, if it’s when he is on his way to work at 5:30 in the morning!  He’ll be able to set the Lantern down, and work hands free, in the dark.

Features & Benefits

  • THE FLASHLIGHT THAT RUNS ON WATER
  • NO BATTERIES* NEEDED
  • BREAK-THROUGH HYDRA-CELL TECHNOLOGY
  • 100 CONTINUOUS HOURS ON A SINGLE WATER DIP
  • BECOMES A FLASHLIGHT AND A LANTERN
  • RUBBERIZED ARMOR COATING
  • RUGGED, DURABLE AND MADE TO LAST

I know the Power Source hasn’t died on us yet, and Jacob, age 6, has been playing with it.  Which, is okay, because it’s built tough!  It can tolerate anything my 6 year old can do, and I wanted to prove that.  So far, it’s withstood a lot.  He’s dropped it, and it still works fine.  Not even has it dulled yet.

Buy for someone you love today!  Also, the more you buy, the more you save!

Ducktales Woo-oo on DVD

Posted on December 15, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide Disney

Ducktales was a favorite of mine, growing up.  Now, I can share the first season, of the series, with my 6 year old, son.  He loves it.  We watched last night, for the first time, but not the last.  He’s already asked to watch again, this morning.  If it wasn’t for getting him ready to go to school, I’d have already turned it back on.  Jacob says Huey, Dewey, and Louie are his favorite cartoon characters.  Ducktales Woo-oo is great for any age.

Vibes Audio for Someone You Love

Posted on December 13, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide Reviews

Vibes Audio is super amazing.   My mother in law loves the new case she has, and the super fast charger that hooks onto the back.  There’s also a speaker, for her to listen to her music, a little louder.  She’s hard of hearing, so this is perfect for her.  My father in law has a second case, but she’s not letting him use the accessories.  Just kidding, they share them.  And, both love them.

 

The cases work for all iPhones starting at 6, or Samsung Galaxy starting at 7.  These products are top quality.  The video explains it all.  You can even guarantee that Vibes Audio is waterproof.  It’s so great to have this new system, for an older couple.  They couldn’t hear their music through the phone speaker, and they love their music.  Now, with this system, they are all set.  They’ve really enjoyed having this system.

You can imagine how easy it is to connect this system.  It took my mother in law about 2 minutes, and it usually takes her longer to do things.

You can order easily, by clicking on the link above, or below, and pick your phone.

You can read about the company here.

Despicable Me 3 is on Bluray and DVD

Posted on December 12, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide Movies Reviews sweepstakes

I love the Despicable Me movies, and Despicable Me 3 did not disappoint.  It’s so cute.  The story line is perfect.

My 6 year old sat through the entire movie, and he just loves those Minions.  You will love this movie too.  It cracks me up, and is just so worth the time.  I don’t watch movies often, so when I can sit through an entire movie, it’s a good thing.  I sat through Despicable Me 3, and laughed my butt off, with my son.

I want to take a moment to tell you about a promotion:

Hilton Hotels is promoting the release of Despicable Me 3 with a national sweepstakes offer with a Grand Prize trip to Los Angeles, hotel stay and tickets for four to Universal Studios Hollywood!  Contest ends 11:59 PM PST on December 31, 2017. Open to legal residents of 50 U.S. & D.C., 21+. One prize available to be won. Blackout dates apply.  To enter, go here.  Also, there are certain locations of Hilton Hotels that  are offering Minions products when you stay.  The locations include:   Southern California, New York, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Washington D.C. and Houston.  Only while supplies last.

My son loves the placemats that were sent.  He writes on them over and over, with a dry erase marker.  The ornaments are nicely placed on our tree, as well.  The stickers were an added bonus as well.  And as for the hat, I can’t get Jacob to take it off.

Clean up before, and after, the Holidays with Mean Green

Posted on December 12, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide Reviews

My mother in law is preparing for the Holidays, and company, with Mean Green.  She loves Means Green.  She has been wiping down her white cabinets, to make them shine, like they are new.   She was using a leading brand, but when I gave her Mean Green, she started using it.

The picture doesn’t even show how shiny they are, but I wanted you to see the difference in the dingy door, from the clean door.  You can see how clean it came, and it only took a little bit of elbow, and a little bit of Mean Green.  The lighting wasn’t that great, but you can surely tell which one is clean.

Mean Green is our new go to for all of our messes.  We even use it in the washer.  To degrease my husband’s work clothes, I use a little, sprayed on, and wash them.  They come clean every time.  You wouldn’t believe all the things my husband gets on his clothes, but with Mean Green every stain comes out.

After the Holidays, don’t forget to use Mean Green to clean up your mess, as well.  You will be definitely delighted by how well it works.

PERFORMANCE STUDIES SHOW: MEAN GREEN OUT CLEANS OTHER PRODUCTS!

Mean Green Super Strength was put to the test versus other brands. It consistently beats the other national brands on tough grease, grime, soils and motor oil and does it for a lower price.

One  more sample of how well Mean Green works:  I never clean my stove, and just did Mean Green.  Look at the incredible job it did.  Just so you know, there was days old bacon grease.

Mean Green is the #1 Heavy Duty Cleaner in America. That’s because people know and trust that Mean Green will get their toughest messes clean the first time. In fact, independent tests prove that Mean Green out cleans other brands on nearly every stain. It works better because it contains more cleaning ingredients than other brands.
