An Ounce of Prevention

They say, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," but I must admit that I usually wait until something goes wrong before I do anything about it! I do try to take care of my health by eating right, taking nutritional supplements, and I occasionally exercise! I try to rationalize the fact that I don't spend more time in the gym by telling myself that I get enough exercise trying to keep up with the kids.

If I would spend as much time keeping up on things with our vehicles and home repairs, I would be all set! I usually don't think about taking care of my car until I start hearing a strange new noise that doesn't sound good. I love to spend money on fun things, and unfortunately, I still haven't learned that if I spend a little money on maintenance, I might have more money for the fun things I want!

My husband and I own a construction/remodeling business, and we see many people who wait until there's a big problem before they call someone to help. We get a lot of work from customers who's homes have rot damage that could have been prevented if the homeowner would have used a gutter protection system.

Many people don't realize how important gutter protection is until they have a major problem. If you have stagnant water sitting in your gutters, not only will you be creating a home for mosquitoes, you will eventually rot out the fascia boards behind the gutters, and that can be a very costly repair.

It's just not worth trying to save a few dollars by putting off simple home maintenence projects. Spend a little time clearing debris and leaves from your gutter, and use a gutter protection system to ensure that water is able to flow through your downspout. If you're still not convinced about the importance of maintaining your gutters and you wait until it's too husband would be happy to come out and give you an estimate on the damage!!

A Sign of Things to Come

The old saying is still true, "You never get a second chance to make a first impression." Several years ago when we were looking for a new home, we were so excited to read about an underground house for sale, which is what my husband always wanted, but it was over an hour away. The description sounded like exactly what we were looking for, so we decided to check it out even though it was a long drive. As we drove out to what seemed like the middle of nowhere (at least that's what my mom calls it), we couldn't wait to see the house. As we drove closer, the first thing I noticed was a rusty old mailbox with a worn out address, and I thought to myself, "Please don't let this be the house!"

Thankfully, the house turned out to be exactly what we were looking for, and we've lived here for almost nine years now. There are many little things that still need fixing, but one of the first things I did was get rid of that old mailbox, and now I want to put up a beautiful address plaque at the edge of our property. Our house is hidden by a hill, and it would be nice if the first thing people notice is a nice address plaque. There are so many beautiful lawn markers that we can choose from to help people find our house. It's also a safety feature for us because I had to call the fire department once, and I needed them to be able to find our house. I caught the yard on fire a couple of years ago when I was trying to burn the trash, and I had to describe our house because you couldn't see the address from the road.

Another great place to use address plaques is mounted on a wall or gate at the end of your driveway. You can put your name on the plaque, so people coming for the first time can easily tell that they're at the right place. It's so embarrassing to drive past the house your looking for because you can't remember the address, but if you can read their name, it's much easier to find. I've done that a few times, and as I'm driving by, they're waving out the door to let us know we've gone too far! I wish more people would use these plaques!

Trivita Co Enzyme Q-10

Co Enzyme Q-10

•Strengthens your heart and circulatory system
•Supports balanced glucose levels
•Boost immune system response
•Improves energy levels
•Soft gel caps absorb easily

This essential nutrient helps build heart health and cellular strength

You may not realize that CoEnzyme Q-10 is in every cell in your body. It helps regulate the absorption and transmission of oxygen in cells. Studies show that after the age of 50 CoEnzyme levels drop by about 50%, which puts your body at risk for damage. This supplement will help protect your body’s heart, circulatory system, and cellular integrity.

Supporting Information

•Scientists have found evidence that CoQ-10 supplements may provide significant assistance in the prevention of a number of health disorders, especially cardiovascular disease.

•Research conducted at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, and funded by the National Heart Foundation of Australia, has shown that CoQ-10 may be very valuable to those who undergo heart surgery. Investigators found that elderly heart bypass patients given 300 milligrams of CoQ-10 (considered a high dose) recovered better and more quickly than those on placebo. The CoQ-10 helped the heart muscle to pump more efficiently and to better tolerate stress.

A series of studies conducted in Japan demonstrated CoQ-10’s ability to help reduce complications and further heart problems after a patient has experienced a first heart attack.

•CoQ10 may also help to improve the symptoms of periodontal disease and immune deficiency. Some people use CoQ-10 as a performance-enhancer.

Stay Warm With Bamboo Fabric

I love the cozy feeling of bundling up in a warm sweater on a cool day, and I found a fabric that you may not have heard about that might help you stay warm. Recently I've been reading about the benefits of bamboo fabric. Many people who experience allergic reactions to other natural fibers, such as wool, do not have a reaction to bamboo.

Bamboo is being promoted as an environmentally friendly, or 'green' fabric. Companies producing organic bamboo fabric leave the bamboo fiber unbleached. Bamboo is a sturdy plant which requires no pesticides to grow, but does require chemicals to produce the fibers which are spun and dyed for weaving into cloth.

The superior wicking properties of bamboo make it an excellent choice for staying cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Bamboo is a naturally antibacterial, antifungal and odor resistant fiber, through multiple washings.

While there continues to be much debate over the environmental benefits of bamboo, the noticable difference it makes while wearing it, compared to cotton and linen, definitely makes this fabric worth looking into as a 'greener' option.

Everyone Qualifies for a Prepaid MasterCard from AchieveCard

If you've ever wanted to order online, or pay your bills online, but don't qualify for a credit card, here is your solution. Everyone qualifies for this prepaid MasterCard from AchieveCard. I love paying my bills online; it's so much easier, and I get a conformation e-mail which is much less stressful than mailing them and hoping they get there on time.

You can go to any one of their retail locations such as CVS pharmacy, Walgreens, Radio Shack and Walmart, and add your desired amount.

This also means that you need to keep track of your balance to make sure you have the money in your account before making a purchase! If you try to use this card and don't have enough money in your account, your payment will be declined.

This prepaid card is like having a prepaid debit card from the bank, but you don't need a bank account. Everyone qualifies, there are no credit checks, and you can use it as often as you like! Be sure to read all of the details from AchieveCard, so you are aware of any fees that may apply. Many of their features are free, but there is a monthly maintenance fee, and a small fee for online purchases after three months.

With a prepaid credit card, you no longer need to worry about carrying cash. This is great for someone like me who can be unorganized with cash! You can find the answers to all of your questions about this prepaid card by calling the customer support number found on the AchieveCard website.

Where is Your Charitable Donation Really Going?

Monday, September 14, 2009

Every time you turn around, it seems like there is another charity asking for donations. Many of them sound like worthy causes, but how do you know where your money is really going? Many people give their hard-earned money to charity, and assume that it's being put to good use. In order to make sure that the money you donate is really getting to the people who need it, try using this checklist, provided by the FTC, to make sure that it is a reputable organization that uses it's money wisely.

Charity Checklist

Be wary of charities that spring up overnight in connection with current events or natural disasters. They may make a compelling case for your money, but as a practical matter, they probably don’t have the infrastructure to get the donations to the affected areas or people.

Ask for written information about the charity, including the name, address, and telephone number. A legitimate charity or fundraiser will send you information about the charity’s mission, how your donation will be used, and proof that your contribution is tax deductible.

Contact the office that regulates charitable organizations and charitable solicitations in your state to see if the charity or fundraiser must be registered. If so, check to make sure that the company you’re talking to is registered. For a list of state offices, visit the National Association of State Charity Officials at Your state office also can verify how much of your donation goes to the charity, and how much goes to fundraising and management expenses.

Don’t be shy about asking who wants your money. Some charities hire professional fundraisers for large-scale mailings, telephone drives, and other solicitations rather than use their own staff or volunteers, and then use a portion of the donations to pay the fundraiser’s fees. If you’re solicited for a donation, ask if the caller is a paid fundraiser, who they work for, and the percentage of your donation that will go to the charity and to the fundraiser. If you don’t get a clear answer — or if you don’t like the answer you get — consider donating to a different organization.

Call the charity. Find out if the organization is aware of the solicitation and has authorized the use of its name. If not, you may be dealing with a scam artist.

Check with local recipients. If giving to local organizations is important to you, make sure they will benefit from your generosity. If a charity tells you that your dollars will support a local organization, like a fire department, police department, or hospital, call the organization to verify the claim.

Watch out for similar sounding names. Some phony charities use names that closely resemble those of respected, legitimate organizations. If you notice a small difference from the name of the charity you intend to deal with, call the organization you know to check it out.

Trust your gut — and check your records if you have any doubt about whether you’ve made a pledge or a contribution. Callers may try to trick you by thanking you for a pledge you didn’t make. If you don’t remember making the donation or don’t have a record of your pledge, resist the pressure to give.

Refuse high pressure appeals. Legitimate fundraisers generally don’t push you to give on the spot.

Be wary of charities offering to send a courier or overnight delivery service to collect your donation immediately.

Be cautious of promises of guaranteed sweepstakes winnings in exchange for a contribution. According to U.S. law, you never have to give a donation to be eligible to win a sweepstakes.

To view the complete checklist, please visit the FTC website. Shows You How Much It Should Really Cost For Auto Repairs

"It's going to cost how much to fix my car?!" Does this sound familiar? You need your car right away, and it has to be fixed, so you're obligated to pay whatever the mechanic charges, right? Wrong! Don't take the first quote as your only option. If you live in one of the major cities listed on, you can find the estimated cost of your auto repairs without leaving home (which is perfect when your car needs repair)!

For example, if you're looking for Chicago auto repair shops or mechanics, you simply click on that city, and you can browse through a list of shops, and read reviews from other customers.

If you're still trying to decide which vehicle to choose for your next car, you can enter the make and model, such as Toyota Camry, and read what others have to say about their experience with this model. These are unbiased reviews from others who are simply sharing their experiences, not people who are trying to sell their vehicle.

Sometimes, mechanics tell you what what the problem is, and then tell you that you need additional parts in order to fix the problem. With, you can read about all related repairs. For instance, if you need to replace your water pump, you can read about other parts that may be required, the function of the water pump, and how to determine if this truly is the problem. makes it easy to keep track of your maintenance and services records by securely storing information and updating you on service reminders, recalls, and safety alerts. Regular maintenance can help prevent repairs from becoming costly, so take care of your car!

Earn Cash Back When You Shop With

I want to tell everyone about a great site I found that lets you earn cash back when you order online. It's so simple to use, and you earn cash back rebates by purchasing the items that you were already looking for, and you can even do some comparison shopping to make sure you're getting the best deal.

All you have to do is log on to, and then click on the store that you want to order from, and it will show you the cash back percentage. It's free to register, so you have nothing to lose! They have over 800 popular stores that you can shop with, and you can search for available stores by categories including, most popular, new stores, and stores that you have saved as favorites in your account.

They have a wide range of stores including department stores, pet supplies, computer software, and hardware stores, just to name a few. You can also search the coupon section of the website to find exclusive coupons, deals, and discount codes available from a selection of stores. Now that I know that I can find the best online shopping deals from, I'm going to look for all of my favorite stores there, so I can use my cash rebates to buy a few extra things just for fun!

Let The Sun Shine In!

I found a way to keep the neighbor's dog, and the insects, from destroying my garden. I'm going to put up a Flowerhouse Greenhouse. I wish I would have found these sooner. It would have saved me a lot of frustration and wasted time. Here in the country, there are always stray dogs and wild animals that run through our yard at night. My fruits and vegetables didn't stand a chance of surviving long enough for us to enjoy them.

With the Flowerhouse Greenhouses, you can easily set up your greenhouse in less than 30 minutes, and your on your way to enjoying your fruits, vegetables, herbs, or flowers. You don't need any tools to set up the greenhouse, and they'll last for a long time since they're made with a fibreglass frame and have rip stop protection.

They come in different sizes, so you can find one to fit the purpose of your garden. My favorite Flowerhouse Greenhouse is the Conservatory Greenhouse. It's designed to look like an old Victorian glass conservatory. It would give our yard that peaceful look of walking through a beautiful old-fashioned garden. It has a zippered window and screen door to allow air flow and ventilation. They also have high-wind tie-downs, which is perfect for us since we have high winds fairly often.

If you prefer natural, organic, fruits and vegetables, free of harmful pesticides, than a greenhouse is the perfect solution. You can enjoy home-grown food all year round, and not have to spray them with chemicals to keep the bugs off.

I would also like to use a smaller greenhouse to grow a few flowers. I have to keep them away from the house, due to my husband's allergies, but I want my girls to be able to watch their flowers grow from seeds into beautiful flowers. This will give us the opportunity we've been waiting for to enjoy the plants that we've always wanted to grow!

And it Burns, Burns, Burns. The Ring of Fire.

Thursday, September 10, 2009

One of my favorite songs has always been "Ring of Fire" by Johnny Cash, so whenever I'm around a fire pit, I think of this song. If you've never had the opportunity to spend an evening sitting around an outdoor fire pit, you're missing out on a great experience of enjoying the warmth of a fire on a beautiful evening. It's one of my favorite things about autumn. We're getting ready to go camping, and I'm bringing our Backyard Fire Ring and Grill. I love listening to a crackling fire while sitting under the stars, and I also want to make sure my children are safe, so we always use the Fire Ring so that no one accidentally trips into a fire hole in the ground. The Fire Ring that I have is so easy to take with you, because it only weighs 18 pounds, and the sides fold up so it can easily be packed for our trip.

I've been trying to decide how I want to decorate our patio, and I found the perfect outdoor fire pit to match the look of our home. It's a beautiful outdoor heater called a Chiminea, and it's also used as a grill. There's a cast iron Chimenea with a gorgeous leaf design that I would love to have! It would give our yard that old-world charm that's so cozy to be around. I'm always thinking of safety, so I noticed that it has a spark screen in the front!

There are so many outdoor fire pits to choose from, that you can find one to match any decor. For those who are looking for a resort-style atmosphere, there is an absolutely gorgeous Fire Pit Table. You and your guests can sit around the table and eat or drink. They have beautiful granite or slate tops, and are definitely the top-of-the-line! I would love to have one of these Fire Pit Tables for my yard, but for now, I'll just have to hope that someone I know will get one of these and invite me to their home. I'll bring the drinks!

Amazing Sand Sculptures

Monday, September 7, 2009

You're never too old to play in the sand! Sand sculpting has become a popular art form in recent years. Hundreds of annual competitions are held throughout the world. Some artists prefer not to use additional materials such as coloring, formwork or adhesive, while others use pieces of wood to reinforce structures. In competitions, the rules often require that the finished sculpture be sprayed with a stabilizing coating that preserves it and allows the work to be properly judged.

In recent years, many artists have formed companies specifically geared towards creating sand sculptures. These companies have found a market with corporate and private clients looking to promote a business or product or simply for the enjoyment of their guests at a special event. While most of these companies operate part time, there a few that operate as full time businesses.

Auto Insurance to Suit Your Needs

Sometimes we don't realize how important it is to have the right insurance coverage until we need to use it. Choosing the right car insurance is important, but many of us don't have the time to call all of the different companies to find out which one is the best. With American Car Quotes, you don't have to. They use the information you provide on their website to find the companies that match your needs, and the companies come to you!

Every state requires drivers to carry liability to ensure that drivers are covered in case of an accident. If you're vehicle is worth a lot of money, than you may want to have additional coverage such as collision. You can also add towing or comprehensive coverage which would cover your vehicle if it's slolen. You need to decide if it's worth the cost, because it may cost you more per month for coverage than it would if you needed to use these services.

Having the right type of safety equipment installed in your vehicle can also help you save money on your monthy premium. Make sure you find out how much, if any, you will save by adding extra safety features to your car to ensure that the cost of installing these features is worth the savings you will receive. Some companies offer discounts to drivers who have a less than perfect record once they complete a driver safety course.

"Cold Hands, Warm Heart", or " Warm Hands, Fun Vacation"

You've probably heard the expression, "warm hands, cold heart", well, I'd like to think I have a warm heart, but I'd also like to have the warm hands! As I pack for our fall vacation, I'm trying to make sure I have everything I need. I have all the usual things such as clothes, blankets, and my own pillow, but this year I'm going to bring our outdoor heater. My mom loves to sit on her patio in the evening, so this year, I'm coming prepared!

I like to use the table top outdoor heaters because they're safe to use around the kids. They shut off if they're tilted or knocked over, which is a real possibility when they're playing on the patio. Plus, it's cute, and it looks good on her patio!

Another heater that would be safe to use is a ceiling or wall mounted heater. If you're looking for an eco-friendly outdoor heater, you could use the Solaira Cosy Quartz heater. It's odorless and the infrared heaters won't be blown away in the breeze, and they keep the heat right where you need it.

I also found a suspended natural gas heater that I would love to get for my patio at home. I love the look of the wrought iron frame. It has an aerated burner that helps to minimize noise and a safety shutoff. It's turned off with a manual control knob, but you can also use the optional on/off heating control system when the heater is out of reach.

These heaters make the difference between sitting outside in the cold wishing you were warm inside, and enjoying a beautiful evening under the stars while staying warm with a heater that is safe to have around. Enjoy the outdoors this fall, and stay warm!

A Secret Garden

Friday, September 4, 2009

A Secret Garden

If there were a secret garden,
What would it comprise?
Fragrant flowers, a babbling brook, butterflies?
Dragonflies, birds, and bees, there would be all of these.

But most of all, within ‘that place’,
Tranquil peace and serenity await;
Ever there for me and you to relax and renew.
So every morning before you start,
Visit the ‘secret garden’ of your heart.

My children enjoy the after school program in our community, and we almost lost this opportunity due to a lack of school funding for anything that is not considered mandatory. The after school program has so many unique opportunities, and we were all sad to think that this program may end. If you talk to someone in your district about using the dual flush toilets, you can show them how you can raise money for programs such as Scouts, charities, sports programs, and other school programs.

This is a great opportunity to 'go green' and raise money for a worthy cause all at the same time! So often, we would like to make a difference, but many changes require a lot of money which most of us don't have. With this opportunity, you don't have to replace any existing equipment, and it doesn't require a lot of time or money. You can purchase a dual flush kit for $29.95. Finally, a realistic way for people everywhere to make a difference!

I Found the Perfect Garden Fountain!

Wednesday, September 2, 2009

We've been living in the country for awhile, and every year I say that I'm going to set up a garden. Well, I finally decided that this will be the year, and I'm going to plan my garden around a beautiful terracotta garden fountain that I found online.

It's so pretty, I just had to put up a picture. I love everything natural, so I was looking for a solar powered fountain, and this one is perfect. I had no idea when I started looking around that there would be so many garden fountains to choose from. I thought a fountain was a fountain, and I would just choose my personal favorite, but I didn't realize there would be so many styles, or that you could choose from wall fountains or free standing garden fountains.

Some fountains are so elaborate. There are gorgeous three and four tier garden fountains that look so peaceful. I'm a beginning gardener, so I think I better stick with something I can handle! I need an easy to use, no assembly tools, and no installation required fountain, and I love the idea of solar power!

One thing I would love to do when I really get going with my garden is to add some small fish to a large fountain. I need to learn more about using the oxygenator pump and other accessories I'll need to keep my fish healthy and safe. I can't wait to get started!
