A Phone that can Dance?

I have never seen a phone that does as much as the VTech LS5145. It has the ability to sync with your cell phone using bluetooth connectivity! Now that's one sweet feature.
Another cool thing is that there is an intercom system built into the phone and this would be a feature that I would use all the time. We have a two story home and this would definitely come in handy. The more I read that this phone could do the more amazed I was. The best part is , over at "Mom Fuse" they are giving away this little wonder of a phone~!!!! So Go check out the site and while your there enter to win.

Snot Your Average Wipe~!

Ok first things first. I'm a subscriber to "Frugal Mommy of 2 Girls" and when I received an email about this giveaway for "Boogie Wipes " I just had to check out what she was blogging about. Well come to find out these are wipes for stuck on Boogies (mucus) caused by the common cold & allergies,With added saline, they offer quick, gentle, effective relief and can you believe it they smell like GRAPE! These are a must have as far as I'm concerned if you have little ones that hate to wipe their nose. It makes me wonder what took so long for someone to invent these things. If you have children or grand children then you should check it out and enter while your there.

Sick Sick Sick

Well I was lucky enough to escape being in bed during Christmas due to being sick but I'm making up for it now. I have been in bed on and off since Friday with bronchitis,sinus infection, ear infection and high fevers. I'm so glad I made it until the 26th without being sick but I am suppose to take the kids to their grand parents which is a tradition we do every year. All the grand kids go to gram and gramps the Sunday following Christmas for a big get together and to have a tree there and yet I am so sick I haven't been up more than 2hrs at a time and I think the worse is yet to come. I am burning up with fever but yet shivering from being cold not to mention my head feels like it's going to explode any minute. It's definitely no fun. I am so dreading tomorrow. I may have to take them over drop them off and go home to bed and have them call when they want to come home. I don't want to expose everyone so they end up sick to not to mention we have a brand new grand baby that was born Dec 24th that will be there. I don't want that poor baby exposed to this. Scott was in his glory holding his first born grand baby. He looked scared holding her on the video but proud as a peacock at the same time~!

Warm Little Mouse

I have R.A and with the cold weather here living in Maine is sure hard on my joints and I have no circulation in my hands and feet from R.A so I'm always cold. I have a heater under my PC desk to keep my feet warm but my hands are still always cold and they have a mouse that will keep your hand warm while surfing the web. This is the neatest idea and over at "Living Life One Day At A Time" they are having a giveaway for one of these hot little items~! Hop on over and check out her site and this giveaway by clicking the link below.

Giving Back~

I just came back from reading a terrific blog at Jessica Knows. It's all about Giving Back and Paying it forward. What is a little ironic is one of my all time favorite movies is "Paying It Forward" And I always thought if the whole world thought like that what a wonderful place this would be. In my opinion there are takers and their are givers in this world and I'm glad I am a giver.This is my chance to pay it forward with the help from Jessica Knows and Libby's. They are having a wonderful giveaway for $300 which you can keep $150 and you get to pick what charity you would like to give the other $150 to. This is a great way to give back to your community or or to help a struggling charity. I live in a small town and unfortunately the down is 400,000 in debt and the school system and local food banks are struggling to keep going. My parents volunteer to pick up the food and transport it back to the local food bank and help deliver food to needy families and I have in the past been the volunteer treasurer until they could find someone more permanent. I work away from home and I'm gone 10hrs a day and with school functions with the kids I just don't have the time to volunteer any longer on a regular basis but this would give me a way to still help them out. I would love to donate the $150 to the local Tri Town Food Cupboard. If you would like to Pay It Forward to a charity check out Jessica Knows wonderful site by clicking on the link below. Hope this holiday found you and your family a healthy and happy holiday season~!

Somethings are not meant to be

I had such great plans for this weekend but somethings are just not meant to be. I had planned on finishing my Christmas Shopping on Saturday and wrap all day during the winter storm on Sunday. When I drove 45min to the nearest shopping centers in Waterville ME and bought one item and discovered that my debit card froze do to a limit of access that is a security feature I was unaware of. That was the end of my shopping. Now if I had realized that this security feature existed I would of drove to the bank that morning and did a withdrawal but who knew (not me obviously). I was really disappointed because I really wanted to finish the shopping since I knew I couldn't on Sunday do to the storm.( I should of know this was just the beginning of what was to come because that is just my kind of luck) What a horrible weekend we have had. First of all Remember the freezer full of nice Deer Meat I was so excited about having in my freezer from Octobers post, well it no longer exist. Last night at around 11pm I discovered the freezer had some how ended up unplugged. $600 of meat gone to waste and what a mess. We only get in the freezer about once a month to restock the freezer over the frig and it had been about 2 weeks since we last opened the freezer. The freezer is located in my laundry room and when I was getting ready for bed I went into the laundry room to put the dirty cloths in the laundry and noticed a fowl smell and I immediately knew what that smell was. I whirled around to look at the light on the front of the freezer and it was not on!!!!
I couldn't believe it. With the price of meat today this was a huge loss for my family. I have a relative in the meat business and he gave me a heads up that the meat prices were about to go through the roof and told me if I could I better stock up so that is exactly what we did. We ordered a huge meat package and he vacuumed sealed it all so nice so there would be no freezer burn waste. Then we got a deer in October so the freezer was full to the top. We were all set for the winter. Now I did save about $200 on the meat since 10 days after I bought it even hamburger jumped a $1 a pound. But now that we have lost it all. I ended up not only loosing all that I had invested but now I have to pay top dollar for my meat all winter. The freezer smelled so bad we had to remove it from the house. We cleaned and cleaned it but I think it is going to take some time to completely get rid of the smell. We removed the top door of the freezer and dumped 3 box's of baking soda in it and put it in the garage until spring.(Did you notice I kept saying we removed the freezer and we cleaned and cleaned the freezer well actually it was Scott doing all that while I was spending most of the time gagging in the bathroom) I am not going to even try to use it this winter. One, I can't afford to replace the meat especially at the prices today and two, it was such a job to get it to the garage to start with since we are in the mist of a blizzard of the century here in maine. My floors are a mess from tracking back and forth with bucket of hot water and soap and tracking the snowy shoes in and out. Not to mention in order to get the freezer out we had to remove the continents of the laundry room. I live in a small apartment and the freezer has been there for many years and the only way to get it out is to remove everything else in the room. So my kitchen was a
wreck , my living room couch was now a holding place for all the cloths on hangers and the recliner for holding the clean laundry that had just been washed and needed to be sorted and taken care of. My whole house was just a disaster area. After 8hrs of cleaning the freezer and the mess the house is almost put back together. The key word is almost. I still need to do all the floors. It isn't happening today because i have had it!!! And just think since we were in the middle of having what the weather man calls "The Storm of the Century" the worse blizzard in 10yrs or more and I had planned to wrap all day today and be ready for the holidays for the first time in years. Needless to say no wrapping is done and I'm in no mood to do it( I can't imagine why) lol lol All I can say is I hope everyones weekend was a lot better than mine. HO HO HO Happy Holidays (ya right)

One project closer~!

One project closer is having an outrageous giveaway right now for a tool we could use desperately.I wish we had this 5yrs ago even because we are currently building a new home. We have been renting for the past 25yrs and it will be so nice to own our home. Scott is a carpenter by trade and I took 4yrs of industrial tech so we decided that a dream could come true with a lot of hard work and even more patience if we built it ourselves. We have been building for 5yrs buying materials each week with what ever we could afford out of our pay checks. We have the 2 1/2 story building shell completed and are now working on the inside. We just recently purchased a lift of V-Match which is expensive.We had to save for a few weeks in order to come up with the money for the lift but it will be worth it once we get it installed. Now the giveaway has a "Track Saw Combo Kit" they are giving away and the is a tool that takes the place of a table saw. It is the coolest little rig I have seen on the market for some time and it would of saved us a lot of time when we were constructing the shell of the house for sure. This Track Saw Combo Kit is put out by Dewalt and if you or a family member knows anything about tools you know that this is a great brand. This tool weights around 20lbs so this makes it easily portable compared to moving a table saw from one project to another. If you want to learn more about this tool go to this awesome site and check it out.

I have to lug soda through the woods and up a mountain every weekend and it's heavy. This would solve my lugging problem for sure.

Happy Holidays~

As of 4:30pm today I started my Thanksgiving Holiday. I took a Vacation day which would give my the day before Thanksgiving off so I can clean and cook all day. I have never had time to cook the day before due to working but after 17 years I requested the day off. It will seem nice not to have to rush home after a long hard day at work and start cooking at 6pm. Not to mention no work for 5 long days~! YEAH~! I can smell my kitchen already with all that aroma lol. Since I don't have to work I plan on making a few extra yummy pies and some peanut butter things which is my families favorite. Peanut Butter Things taste a lot like Reeses cups and are very easy to make. All this talk about food is already making me hungry so I guess I better stop now. Happy Holidays and may all your bellies be stuffed~!

If there's a will there's a way

This actually all started yesterday at work when we were looking at the sign up list to bring in for food for our holiday dinner. It had Potato's,Stuffing,Cranberry Sauce,Rolls,Veggie platters,Chips&Dip and a spread of deserts everything but the meat. The day before, I had bought 2 turkeys since they were on sale at Hannaford's during my lunch hour and took them back to the office and put them in the freezer. Well while we were discussing the lack of meat on the menu my supervisor said "Rhonda I saw you put 2 turkeys in the freezer cook one of them up for our dinner tomorrow". Well she was just kidding of course since they were frozen solid and it was going to be almost 6pm before I got home. But as I was driving home I got to thinking about it and thought I can do this no problem. (Well not exactly no problem lol) Anyhow I rush to the freezer as soon as I got home and pulled out one of the turkeys and figured since we have microwaves now a days this should be no problem. I'll just stick it in the Mic and nuke it on defrost for an hour. So I cut open the turkey bag and low and behold there was a metal holder in it and of course I had to get that out of the turkey first before nuking it. Now you would think this would be easy right,,,,wrong. I co mensed to soaking it in cold water ,,1 hour,,,2 hours ,,,3 hours of flipping and soaking it, still I couldn't get it out and since at this point it was 10:30pm and 5am comes early I put it in the fridge on a platter and went to bed and figured maybe by morning I could get it out and nuke it for an hour while getting ready for work which I did exactly that and finally I had it defrosted enough to get the giblets and the neck out. I then rinsed it with warm water, put it in the big roaster and smeared it in butter. Now since I commute 45 minutes to work and we wanted this bird cooked by noon I figured why not cook it on the way. So I got my car adapter for AC and plugged it into my lighter and then put the huge roaster in the from seat, plugged it into the adapter and off I went. By the time I got to work it had been cooking at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. When I called my supervisor and explained I would be 10 min late for work but I had a turkey cooking on the way she said "what?" How are you cooking it in your car?" I explained , she laughed and I told her if there is a will there is a way. Sure enough it was ready not only by noon but by 11:30am. It was falling off the bone. So we enjoyed a great "HOT" Turkey along with all the fixing. Oh we did have an incident however. about mid morning the smoke alarm in the board room went off which is where the turkey was cooking unattended of course while we worked so the next thing I know I get a call saying I think your Turkey is calling you lol . I went running to the other end of the building to find the Turkey just fine but the detectors were sensitive so I opened the door and added a little water so the grease from the turkey wouldn't cause any more problems but since I opened the door you could smell turkey all through the building and it was making everyone hungry so they were all glad it was done a little sooner than we thought.

One of Those Days!

Have you ever had "One of Those Days" where nothing seemed to go right? Well yesterday was one of those days for sure. We had 3 days of nothing but rain and I mean down pours. But late yesterday afternoon the wind picked up and after 3 days at camp we headed home however about 10 miles later we came to an abrupt stop because there was a fire truck parked across the road and after sitting still for 20 minutes we decided to find out why. Well come to find out the wind had brought down a huge fur tree and snapped the electric lines. So we waited and waited for the local electric company to show up and shut off the power and remove the line. One man had been there an hour when we showed up and we sat waiting for about an hour ourselves. The poor guy was trying to get home after a long day at work and the kicker was he only had less than 5 miles and he would of been home. Anyhow we finally get to go.Then we drove another 10 miles or so and noticed that all the lights were out in town and since it was the next town over from ours we knew we probably didn't have electricity either and sure enough we didn't. Once we got home we ran around finding as many candles as possible and one kerosene lantern to try and light the house up. Since the power hadn't been out long I figured we better get showers while we knew the holding tank was full of hot water (while the getting was good) just in case the power stayed off for a long period of time at least we all would be clean. So by candle light(and not much of it) I jumped in the shower then while my youngest was taking his shower I commenced to cooking supper in the dim dark kitchen.( thank goodness for gas stoves) No more had we all finished taking our showers and eaten in the dark but on pops the power. Go figure right. Well anyhow at least it wasn't worse since it gets mighty cold here in the winter months with no heat and with no power we had no heat so even though it was one of those days it could of been a lot worse.

Savy Soda~!

I'm trying to win this fantastic soda machine. It's the next best invention since toilet paper. lol You see since I live on the mountain and I have to walk the trail up the mountain lugging all the groceries which is a big pain. Lately our old beat up 1985 4-wheeler just doesn't seem to want to stay running so we end up lugging most of the time. This week all week which is a lot of lugging when you have to lug a weeks worth of groceries. The thought of not having to lug soda would be a nice blessing. I have been thinking of buying a cow so I won't have to lug the milk as well. lol Just kidding I think the grain and hay would be a little more than I could handle. Any how I stubbled upon this cool site that is giving one of these fantastic machines away check it out at Mom Most Traveled.

PoP Goes The Soda~!

This is a must have for me. It's a soda machine~! I am currently building a house in the woods on top of a mountain. We have not had the money to build a road to the house yet since it will cost around $5,000 and we have to lug all our food and drinks to stay there while we build. We have the electricity installed now and are working on getting the well drilled then on to the road.We figure it will be another year or two before we will be able to afford to put in the road. We have a nice foot path but it's a hike up the mountain for now so when I saw this awesome machine I fell in love with it. Since I have to lug soda every weekend up the mountain this would save a lot of lugging for me. The kids would be in their glory with this. It's an awesome invention for sure. You can make soda in less than 30 seconds and it has reusable carbonating bottles to eliminate the lugging and it cost around .57 cents per liter.They have 20 soda flavors to choose from not to mention the flavored water. It even gets better this cool site is giving one of these machines away check it out by clicking on their button below.

On my way to work this morning someone had hit a doe and left it. They didn't bother to stop and Since we love Deer Meat in this house I stopped and called the Game Warden to see if I could claim it. They told me I could take it, hang it , gut it but not to skin it and when they came to look at it hanging if all is well we could then get a tag number for it. I was thinking well I hope after we do all the work he doesn't decide he is going to take it. But he showed up and said it was ok and gave us a tag. So Deer stew will be on the menu soon~! I couldn't see wasting all that meat letting it rot on the ground. We have already cut up 2 roast and 8 packages of tenderloin and 6 packages of steaks and that's just the start of it so that will sure help the grocery bill for meat this winter.

Cake any one?

No you can't eat it. It's a baby shower cake made out of disposable diapers and it is so adorable and not only that it's useful after the shower. It's made out of things the mother to be can use once the new baby arrives. It is a wonderful idea. The best part is they are also giving one away at the site below. Check it out~

We have so many Mosquito's here it is hard to go outside and enjoy ourselves and with the West Nile Virus it also worries me when the kids get bit. I use bug spray but it never works 100%. But the best part is the fact that it can also kill fleas.My cat is allergic to fleas and they cause her hair to fall out so this would be great for keeping them out of the yard and the house. The best part is they are giving one away. Check out this site to find out how to win it.

Mow Go Green

I have suffered from a torn right shoulder rotor cuff injury for the past 3 years and since then there are a lot of things I just can't do any longer and one of them is to pull on the lawn mower to get it started and mow the lawn. But now there is a new electric mower that would solve this problem for me and at the same time would save the environment. My son is always to busy with one thing or another so my lawn always is in need of mowing long before it gets done and I hate it. It is discouraging having to wait for someone else to do the things I have always done myself. With this mower there is no more gas smell or mess. Just think of how much this mower would help the environment if we all had an electric mower!!! Well to make a long story short there is a giveaway for one of these awesome machines. Go to the link below and check out the site. It's a real cool site. I love the way the site is designed and I bet you will too. Ecorazzi is the place you want to go.

And the best part is that they had tiger slides which is what I collect so I was thrilled.Check out Something Snappy's giveaway and enjoy yourself.


As some of you may or may not know this is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I'm trying to help spread the word. For all of you Male and Females do them breast exams they are so important and if your over 40 you should schedule a mammogram. I did say Males as well because I have a friend that is a Male who also was diagnosed with breast cancer. Matter of fact He had it twice. He was a small frame person and noticed a lump and that something wrong and had it checked. This is usually referred to as a female cancer but it is not and I wanted to just mention this in case any Men happened to stop by and read this. If you don't have insurance ask your Dr. if they have a program in your area that offers free mammograms. I know where we live in Maine they had a program for free mammograms and pap smears. If never to late or to early to do this. If you feel a lump or anything that seems abnormal do not ignore it. If you questions about breast cancer this site may help
This is a wonderful site that has lots of information. Not only that after you have checked out that site hop on over to

Winter around the corner.

Since I live in Maine we have long cold winters and since this year our summer has been cold and rainy I am really regretting the approaching Winter. I don't care for Snow or Cold so why I stayed in Maine is beyond me. Every year I can't wait for spring. This year was a big let down. We had a rainy cold summer so It's going to be a long winter this year! I'm an outdoors person but I hibernate in the winter. Having a bad summer is a big thing to me since that is what I look forward to. The kids are already in school which means the cold weather will be setting in soon. I guess I'll then have more time for blogging and posting. Summer time I am just to busy trying to enjoy the few weeks of warm weather we have. Now if I just didn't have to work I could enjoy more of our summer day~! lol

I just heard about a new wonderful hobby I can't wait to try it out. It's called geocaching. I just borrowed a hand held GPS from a friend and can't wait to get started. Sunday will be our first try at this fun new hobby and I will up date you on our progress. If you have never heard of this before then I will try to give you some idea what this is all about. If you like going on treasure hunts this is for you. People from all over the world have treasures buried and they leave the coordinates of where the treasure is and they even leave hints that you need to decode. Now your first question may be "Where do I find these clues and coordinates to be able to go look for the treasure?" Well that's easy just log onto this webb site create an account which is free and type in a zip code and you will find lots of them there. This is the site where you can log the treasures you have found and post a treasure you have hiding for others to find. Keep in mind I myself am a newbie to this so I have much to learn and this site will help you more than I will. All you need to be a treasure hunter is a hand held GPS and your good to go. Once you have made an account at you can then upload all treasures to you GPS from that site. Every time you find one you can delete it from your GPS and move onto the next one. Are you confused yet? lol Sorry if you are. Any how this is something the whole family can do together and it gets everyone out of the house for the day. I do realize gas prices are crazy and that is an added cost but just so you know when I pulled up my zip code there was 2 geocaches within 5 miles of my house~! I was so amazed~! So if gas prices is a concern try looking close to home. Ok now that you have the general idea on to the next step. Once you have found the geocaches treasure you take what you find and replace it with something else so that the treasure always remains for the next person to find. Some people don't even bother to take the items at all they just find it check out what is inside and go on to the next one because the thrill is finding it to start with and the places this new found hobby can take you. Most of the time the treasure is small and does not have much cash value so if your looking to get rich this isn't going to work for you. This is just a fun hobby. A lot of the time it's not the treasure inside the geocaches it's the scenery that is actually the treasure because people pick there favorite spots with amazing views and wonderful places such as water falls and caves ect... So be prepared and take a camera you made want one in case you stumble across a beautiful place you have never been before. You can also hide your own geocaches and track who has found it and when they found it on the site and if that's not enough you can put an item in your hiding geocaches and attach what they call a travel bug. A travel bug is a tag with a chain on it that you attach to an item and ask who ever finds it to help it get to a particular place. The treasure hunters will take it to the next geocach they find and place it there then the next person takes it to another geocach and so on . I know some one that put a sleigh ornament in a geocach and a note asking them to help get their item to Alaska. The item is now currently in Oregon. It started in Maine. You can track your travel bug online to see where it goes and how close it is to where you wanted it to end up. So there is a lot of different things going on in the geocaching. When you are at the webb site click on "trackable items" and then click on"shop for gear" this will explain things better plus show you other exciting things you can collect or track. That's about all I know for now. Wish me luck on our first "find" and leave me a comment of how many "finds" you have done and what you have found on your ventures. P.S The pictures on this post are from a geocaches site and not anyone in my family I just wanted to show the kids having fun hunting too.

"Disney" Need I say more~!

I just went to a real great site that is giving away a GC to Disney and she also is a travel agent who sounds like she would set anyone up for a trip of a life time to Disney. I'm going to subscribe to her news letter because if we ever get a chance to go to Disney financially I think I may keep her in mind to set it up for me because she cares about the trip experience you have. So before you enter her giveaway take the time to read about what she has to say ,,,now go have some fun~!

I am new to blogging and have found some wonderful sites to read and have learned a lot. I had no idea I was so sheltered lol . I have found tips on saving money to what's new in technology. I have found some great reading and giveaways that I have entered. I really like reading other peoples blogs. If you happen to stumble on my site please leave a post if only to say Hi. I read more than I write which reminds me I found a new item which is also a great new electronic device which is called a "Sony Reader". This device allows you to download any book at any time any place to this little hand held machine. You then own the book forever and it is stored on this hand held machine. At a flip of a button the pages turn. It's like really reading a book and this thing holds thousands of books. You have a library at the tip of your fingers. This would be great for any college student~! I also found out that they have another brand called "Kindle". Now to tell ya which one is the best out of the two I have no idea but if you would like to see what a "Kindle looks like you can go to and find it there. I have put this one my wish list not that I will ever be lucky enough to ever purchase one but itsn't that why they call it a "Wish" list? lol I did a blog earlier about a Soda Machine and I just added that to my wish list too. See my earlier post for a link to check out this cool item. I'm just having too much fun finding all the new hot items out there. Like I told ya I guess I'm out of touch with what's new out there but I'm learning.

Unbelievable Machine

I just saw the most amazing new invention. Or at least it was new to me. I have never seen one before today. It is a soda machine. You can actually buy one for your home and it small and convenient, requires no batteries or electricity and has tons of flavors.I could go on and on about this product but you have to check it out for your self. But's what's even better is They are giving one away at "what's on Mommy's Mind"
