Recently I wrote about my teeth whitening ordeal at the Dentist's office. Trust me, it wasn't pretty. In fact, it was downright painful. Using the Crest 3D Whitestrips, on the other hand, was easy peasy and painless. In the before (top picture) and after photos, shown below, I tested out one 2 hour treatment. The package [...]


In my previous post about the HP Pavilion dv6 I asked readers to let me know what they thought was important in a laptop. I received a few comments with the same responses, I've noted them below in no particular order.      Battery life Start Up/Speed Durability Screen Size/Brightness Memory/RAM Size/Weight Seeing how so many readers [...]


  Two of my biggest household expenses are food and laundry. I've been able to cut back on my food shopping by using coupons; however, short of not washing clothes, I haven't been able to cut my laundry bill.  It's an expense I learned to deal with and don't mind paying , especially when I consider the alternative:  tween and [...]

I brought my 1st car in 2003.  A few months later, I crashed in a very weird chicken accident that caused a four car pile up. Thankfully, we survived. It's never let me down. It may not be the sexiest car, but I don't think I could have handled sexy at that point. Times have changed. [...]


Recently I was given the opportunity to review the Sprint LG Optimus S.   When the box arrived, Karl, my teen,  brought it upstairs. Wait, let me rephrase that. He practically tripped over himself running up the stairs in his haste to have me open the box. (I have a rule in my place. As the [...]

I have to admit I expected it to be much bigger, especially after I was that told that [...]


A few years ago I hired a trainer. He was not only a great trainer, he was also guapisimo/gorgeous! I trained harder because he trained me. I ran, lifted, squatted, and jumped on command. Yet the one thing I dreaded doing was sit-ups and not for the reason you may think. Exercising, when done with vigor, [...]

However, after I gave it more thought I decided to allow a friend of mine to review it. She agreed and told her [...]

Below is my review. Be forewarned, it may contain spoilers! ******************** The main character, Gru, lives for his job. He is a "villain" intent on [...]

Have you seen my youngest and most active son, Andrew,  pictured below? If I had to rate his activity level it would definitely be "HIGH". He's a sports fanatic, on and off the field!  On any given day, you can find Andrew roughing it up with his friends playing football, softball, soccer and basketball. Not surprisingly, his [...]
