Just in Time for Helping Clean Up ~ Mean Green Multi-Purpose Cleaner
2017 Holiday Gift Guide , Reviews / November 30, 2017

Mean Green is amazing, and just in time for Christmas, I’ve discovered it.  Mean Green is a fabulous Multi Purpose Cleaner, that is helping me clean up, after my baking, and cooking for the Holidays.  My husband loves it, more than the leading brands.  He says, “Man, it really cuts the grease on the grill.”  My 20 year old, daughter, loves Mean Green, too.  She said that it really helped to clean up the stains on her work clothes.  “Just a couple of sprays, and in the wash, with a little Biz added, and pow, clean,” she said. Mean Green is a great degreaser, and multi purpose cleaner.  Why would you buy anything else, once discovering Mean Green.  I gave a bottle to my Mother In Law, and her husband.  They used it on their car windows, and she said “streak free”.  My husband used it in the basement, where he’s remodeling, right now, and he said it really cleaned up the messes he’s made. My mom, on the other hand, is using the Mean Green Wipes.  She loves them.  Says she did her windows, in the picture window.  She said that the windows came sparkling clean, and the Christmas Tree just…

Great Stocking Stuffers Listed Below
2017 Holiday Gift Guide , Reviews / November 28, 2017

We could always use ideas for Stocking Stuffers, so where better to get them, than here.  These are all great ideas.  I always liked when my mom would put a drink in our stocking, and a treat.  That way, when we were opening presents, we had something at our fingertips.  It was the perfect idea, that I carried on for my children.  And, I do stockings for 13 children/adults, so these will all be in our stockings! I’m going to start with the great Sparkling Ice.  If you’ve never had Sparkling Ice, you are missing out.  There is a huge variety of flavors, and they are so inexpensive.  You can even buy them in a family pack, at Walmart.  This would make a great stocking treat, for any aged child/adult. The Welch’s Fruit Rolls, oh my goodness.  These are delicious, and taste just like the leading brand.  They are fabulous.  You could open the box, and put one in each stocking, or two, depending on the size of your family.  My husband ate the entire box, the last time I bought them.  Yeah, he loves them, and so will your family. The Carrington Farms Chia Seeds, go to my sister. …

The Glass Castle is a Fantastic Movie
2017 Holiday Gift Guide , clip , Movies / November 26, 2017

We watched The Glass Castle the other day, and it was fantastic.  I really like Woody Harrelson, and adore Naomi Watts, so this was a no brainer, for me, to watch.  And Brie Larson played an exceptional role.  Even my 20 year old, daughter, got into watching it.  She said she will have to read the book next.  She always loves to compare the book to the movie.   An all-star cast shines in this inspiring film based on THE NEW YORK TIMES best-selling memoir. Jeannette (Oscar® winner Brie Larson) had a poor but wildly adventurous childhood, raised by her free-spirited father (Oscar® nominee Woody Harrelson) and her mother (Oscar® nominee Naomi Watts), an eccentric artist. But when her father’s behavior become erratic, Jeannette must find the courage to live on her own terms in this uplifting story of unconditional love. The story line is super.  You will really enjoy this movie.  And, it’s a Real Life Drama. BLU-RAY / DVD / DIGITAL HD SPECIAL FEATURES * 9 Deleted Scenes * The Glass Castle: Memoir to Movie * A Conversation with Jeannette Walls * Making of “Summer Storm” by Joel P West * Scoring The Glass Castle Connect with The Glass Castle:…

I Live For Canvas On Demand!
2017 Holiday Gift Guide , Reviews / November 26, 2017

Canvas On Demand is a great company to order your Custom Canvas Prints from.  I received mine the other day, and I must say I am most pleased.  My 20 year old, daughter, and 6 year old, son, look fabulous.  The picture turned out better than I had hoped, on the enlarged Canvas. You can even get Canvas to color.  I forgot to order mine, but I’m sure it would’ve been great.  I love Canvas On Demand, and know how well our Canvas Picture turned out.  I’ve never been more pleased with a canvas photo.  The pixels are perfect, the backing is wonderful, and the canvas is superb!  I want to keep it, but I actually had it made for my mom, whose birthday is Christmas Eve. Whether you need one picture, or multiples, I would definitely suggest Canvas On Demand.  The photo is so clear, and the colors are so bold.  I love it.  My kids both wore red, that’s why I say the colors are bold.  They turned out just as I had hoped.
