School Supply


Guest post of the week by Moises Henderson
My mom retired from teaching after 35 years. She enjoyed her time off for a little while, but soon was trying to figure out what to do every day. After working full time for so long, she quickly became bored with all of her free time. She decided that she needed to find something to focus all of her new found energy on. She had the great idea of starting a school supply store that was creative and affordable for all of her friends who were still teaching. She set up t1 internet to allow her to reorder supplies for the store, and also teachers can create accounts and place orders for specific supplies that they need. Her store is really close to the cluster of schools where she used to teach. She has been getting a lot of business and most of her customers are teachers who she used to teach with. I am so glad that she has something fun to do with her time now and that she is able to keep up with so many of her friends.

Boundless Nutrition Perfect Fit Cookies and Protein Bars Review and Giveaway 3/10

Boundless Nutrition sent me seven or eight of their perfect fit cookies and their Oatmega 3 protein bars to try out. When I saw they had green tea in the protein bars, I was nervous about the taste. The protein bars and the perfect fit cookies are delicious and nutritious. This is incredible to me. The cookies have 150 calories, 10 grams of protein, 4 grams of protein and 3 cups of green tea. The protein bars have any where between 10 and 14 grams of protein, 2 cups of green tea, DHA and EPA Omega-3 and are low in calories. I can't believe these bars and cookies taste as delicious as they do. This is incredible to me.




Boundless Nutrition is a natural healthy food manufacturer and distributor based in Austin Texas.  We are proud to be a family owned and operated business.  We currently offer the Oatmega 3 Wellness bars and the Perfect FIT Protein Cookies.


Boundless Nutrition started as a small home grown business in Austin Texas. Trevor created the bars as part of a diet and exercise program for himself. As his diet plan started working well his friends and coworkers wanted to know his secret; aside from regular exercise, small frequent meals that contain high quality proteins, healthy fats and antioxidants were the key. Since it isn’t always easy to eat frequent meals, Trevor created a nutrition bar that had all of the essential aspects of a small healthy meal. He dubbed the bars the Oatmega 3 Wellness Bars after the omega 3 fatty acids and whole grain oats contained in the bars.


The Giveaway is for 12 bars or cookies, the winner's choice. You will love these delicious protein bars and perfect fit cookies from Boundless Nutrition.....

Gambling Advice From A Non-Gambler

I'm not a gambler. I mean I have dabbled a little bit at casinos for fun and once or twice I checked out an online casino, but I am not a gambler. I remember going to the local casino with my sister, but we had to leave because of the smoke. Every nook and cranny of the place had gamblers who smoked and blew the stuff in our faces.

At least with online gambling, you don't have to deal with rude people who believe they need to share their nasty habits with you. You can sit in your favorite chair at home and play the games that interest you the most. This way you don't have to deal with noise and rude people in your local casino.

One day I will take a trip to Las Vegas to have some fun. I heard that they have special non-smoking sections where people like me can enjoy our vacation and not have to breathe in smoke. For now, if I do gamble, I will do it online where it is more convenient and fun. Again, I am not a gambler, but if I do gamble, I want to do it in a place where I feel comfortable. If you do gamble, make sure you don't get too hooked because you may lose everything.

Peeled Snacks Review and Giveaway 3/9/12

The Peeled Snack company sent me a box of their natural fruit snacks. In the box, I received Banan-a-peel, apple-2-the-core, apricot-a-lot, cherry-go-round, and much-ado-about-mango. The packages are about 1.4 ounces or so and they are organic dried fruit, nothing added. The fruit tastes delicious and is a natural source of fiber and Iron.

If you are going to snack anyway, why not try something that is naturally good for you. I was impressed mostly with the banana dried snack because it tasted fresh. It wasn't crunchy like you usually get and there was plenty of flavor. The Peeled Snack dried fruit is organic and would be a terrific snack to drop into your children's lunch  bag.

The Mission of the Company:
At Peeled Snacks we know that food starts out delicious and nutritious, and it doesn't need some machine to improve it, or an engineer to perfect it. We strive to bring you natural, premium ingredients so you can feel good about snacking. We believe a healthy diet includes a balanced mixture of protein, fiber, and carbohydrates to help you stay fit and active. Eating well doesn't have to mean eating tasteless, bland foods. It does, however, mean eating a healthy, wide range of foods from every food group.


Peeled Snacks are now available in Starbucks throughout the US and Canada

Making Your Garage Neat With Storage Cabinets

My garage is a mess most of the time. I have a few Garage Cabinets, but I really need to get more. I need to get more of my stuff off the ground and into storage cabinets. I think if I had five or six Garage Storage Cabinets on my walls, I could get my garage looking like I want it to look. This is going to take a lot of work, but when I am done it will be worth it.

I found a company online that has everything I need to put my garage in shape. Arrow Spacemaker Storage Cabinets are great quality and have everything I need for my garage. I checked out the website and found the storage cabinets that fit me and what I need. I chose Steel Storage Cabinets because they last a long time and they will look great in my garage.

The storage cabinets showed up a few days later at my front door. I set them up in my garage and secured all my stuff in my new cabinets securely. Now my garage looks good and is cleaner than it has ever been. Now I have room in my garage for my car. It is so cool to have my garage looking neat for the first time in my life.


How To Become A Radical Christian Punk


Yes, I am one of those radical Christians. You might as well call me a Christian punk. I refuse to conform to the ways of the world. I will follow what Jesus told me to do in the Bible. He is my savior and He gave me life. Jesus is the reason I became a Christian. You can make funny of me and my ways. You can make rules and laws that affect my life. It does not matter because I will be a Christian punk until the day I die. What Is A Christian Punk?
A Christian punk does not conform to the ways of the world. I do not have any body piercings. I do not have any tattoos. This is my choice. Not all Christian people go without piercings and tattoos. This does not make them less of a Christian than I am. I am a Christian punk because I have my own style of clothing. I could care less what is in and what is out. My style is part of what makes me a Christian punk. I am a Christian punk because I listen to my kind of music. My music happens to be Christian. My favorite group is Skillet. I may be forty-six years old, but you can still see me bopping my head to the tunes coming out of my car stereo. I am a Christian punk and I am proud of it.
A Christian punk does not conform to the ways of the world. I do not believe in abortion. I believe it is wrong and I believe abortion is murder. Yes, I am radical. Yes, I am a Christian punk. I believe in the sanctity of marriage. I believe marriage is between one man and one woman. I believe homosexual marriage is wrong. I do not hate gay people, but I believe their lifestyle is wrong. I am a Christian punk. Call me it if you want to. I do not do drugs to help me through my day. I seldom gamble because I believe it is a waste of time and money. I hardly ever have an alcoholic beverage. I never get drunk. I am a radical Christian punk. This is my lifestyle. My lifestyle does not conform to the beliefs of the world.
A Christian punk does not conform to the ways of the world. I will greet you with "merry Christmas" during the Christmas season. You will not hear me say happy holidays because I am a Christian punk. I believe Christianity is the only religion that leads to heaven. I do not hate other religions. I do not want to remove Muslims off the face of the earth. I know Muslims want to remove Christian's off the face of the earth. I will not shove my Christianity down your throat. However, I will not conform to your ways. I am a radical Christian punk.
How Do You Become A Radical Christian Punk?
• Ask Jesus to forgive you for your sins-everybody had sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Jesus came down to earth as a man, he was perfect. Jesus died on the cross to forgive all of our sins and He rose from the grave (three days later) and defeated death.
• Become a baptized believer-different churches believe baptism is done in different ways. Some churches sprinkle or pour water over a person's head. The correct way to be baptized is by being completely immersed into water. Baptism is an act of obedience to God.
• Live your life as a Christian. People around you will call you one of those radical Christian people. Don't worry about it. You could go one step further and be like me. I am a radical Christian punk. I do not conform to the ways of the world. This is what Christianity is. Christian people are not without sin. We all sin and fall short of the glory of God. However, a Christian is covered by the blood of Jesus. Our sins are forgiven. Living the Christian life is hard, but living it as a radical Christian punk makes it a little bit easier. As a radical Christian punk you realize the world is not going to look at you as a Christian (Christ like) person. The world will make fun of your lifestyle as a Christian. They will persecute you because you are a Christian.
• Live knowing this life is not the end. All people will live into eternity. The Christian person will go to heaven. We do not go to heaven because we are better than anybody else. The Christian person goes to heaven because of the blood of Jesus Christ. Without Him we are nothing. The non-Christian's destiny is a different place. It is a place where there will be an eternity of suffering.
Yes, I am one of those radical Christians. You might as well call me a Christian punk. I refuse to conform to the ways of the world. I will follow what Jesus told me to do in the Bible. He is my savior and He gave me life. Jesus is the reason I became a Christian. You can make funny of me and my ways. You can make rules and laws that affect my life. It does not matter because I will be a Christian punk until the day I die.
Radical Christian punk-
Radical-because our country believes everything Christians do is radical
Christian-because Jesus died on the cross from the dead and arose after three days, defeating death. He is our savior. He made us Christians.
Punk-different in every way-not normal-weird-odd.......

Beautiful Women Wear Modest Dresses

My wife is a professional woman and she loves to dress up. She is an accountant in a very large company in Florida. Dressing like a lady is important for my wife because she is Catholic and she is a modest woman . It is important for her to look beautiful and conservative at the same time. This is why my wife is more likely to buy modest dresses than any sort of liberal clothing.

I am proud of my wife because she is successful, but she does not go against her beliefs. Dressing like a professional lady is very important to her. Being modest is even more important to her. It is great when she finds a place that has clothes which bring out her best qualities while still remaining conservative. In today's world, these clothing places seem to be fading away as our society leans towards the left.

I look forward to the day when women go back to acting and dressing like young ladies. Showing too much skin is not always the right way to go, but is becoming prevalent in our country. Woman are beautiful, but many of them are leaving less and less to our imaginations. Sometimes this makes some of us men wonder where all of the old fashioned women have gone. Lucky for me, I have a beautiful wife who sticks to what she believes and acts like a lady.

It is one of those pens everybody likes and they try to find a way to borrow it from you. You know the borrow where you never get it back. I like promotional items like this pen because they look good, are cool and make an interesting gift for your clients and your friends.

The Parent Trade-Off

Doug is a stay at home father who works while his children are in school. He is married with two small children and his wife is a school teacher here in Florida. He cleans fancy restaurants, tutors and helps students with their college work.

I am a stay at home father with three children. My wife is an accountant, my two small children are in Catholic School and my fifteen year old takes virtual school. I deliver pizza at night while my children are sleeping and I am an in the stands vendor for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars, Florida Marlins, Tampa Bay Rays and Orlando Magic. I work home during the day as a blogger and write when I get a chance (not very often).

The Trade-Off-Last night, I worked until two in the morning with Doug cleaning one of his restaurants. We spend an hour and a half waiting for everybody to leave because the owners were wrong about the time. This is part of what he deals with in this sort of business. We spent two hours cleaning the store and the dust under very expensive alcohol.

I received an expensive beer from Germany while I was waiting, fifty-cents I found on the floor and Doug will pick my children up from bowling next week and bring them home. I will be on my way to a vending event in Orlando. Doug received the pay for my two hours of work. This is one of those Parent Trade-Offs friends like us do to help our lives run smoothly. I'm sure there are other stay at home moms and dads out there who do the same things to keep the family running as smoothly as possibly.

Doug is working on his Masters degree and I have no degree yet. I have 118 hours of college and hope to finish in the future. Our wives have their degrees and both of them are from the Philippines.

The Importance of Continuing Your Education In Today's Society

I would love to go back to college and finish my degree. It is hard because I spent the past eight years of my life as a stay at home father who works full-time at night. If you are a parent, you realize this leaves little time for a college education. Our children are important and they take up much of our time. This is the life of a stay at home father.

I am one of those people who quit college when I was nearly through. I collected 114 hours out of the 125 hours I needed for my bachelors degree when I quit. I quit because I had worked full-time and went to college full-time for five years. I was burned out, young and tired of school. This is one of those decisions I wish I could take back, but I cannot. Sometimes we make decisions we have to deal with for the rest of our lives, this is one of them.

Since then, I have taken three college classes, but have not finished off my degree. This is still my goal and I will accomplish it even if it takes the rest of my life. I live in Florida now and I have become interested in graphic design courses in miami or continuing my education here in Tampa. I haven't decided which, but the decision is still being weighed in my mind.

In today's economy education is very important. There aren't enough jobs to go around and a college education gives you a fighting chance to compete for the job you want. Educated people have a much better chance to get a good job in a tough economy than those who gave up on college. This is one of the reasons I will finish my college degree in the near future.

Healthy Smoothie Recipe: Peanut Butter, Strawberry, Pineapple, Apple, Granola and Banana


I will begin listing my healthy smoothie/protein shake recipes. If you want to give these smoothies to your children, just leave out the protein mix. I use a Blendtec blender to make my smoothies, but there are other compatible machines out there on the market that you can use. Check out the recipe

Take your blender and plug it in and add these ingredients;

2 tablespoons of protein mix-remember to delete this if giving this smoothie to your children

12 ounces of Horizon fat-free organic milk-you can replace this with other organic milk or regular milk

add six strawberries, some fresh pineapple, apple slices and three or four good size bananas. break up the bananas into smaller pieces. You can actually use frozen fruit is you do not have fresh fruit. We are lucky in Florida because we often have tons of fresh fruits

add a tablespoon of peanut butter and add two good size handfuls of almonds, also add a handful of granola

add three handfuls of ice cubes-don't forget to put the top on. push the smoothie button and let your blender do the work. Our Blendtec machine finishes the smoothie in about thirty minutes. If you are using this as a replacement meal. Take a large 32 ounce cup and fill it up with the smoothie.

This is also very tasty after a tough workout. Hope you enjoy. My children enjoy these smoothies (without the protein powder of course).


This smoothie/protein shake has more protein because of the almonds and peanut butter and also has the good cholesterol or HDL cholesterol we need. This smoothie also takes on the peanut-butter taste, so if you like peanut-butter, this smoothie is for you.

Buy The Best When You Buy A New Sink and Faucet

We wanted a new sink for our bathroom. We looked around and we found the one we liked. It is called a vessel sink. The best thing about the sink was we both liked it. My wife loved the sink and I think it is the best sink we ever bought. It looks perfect in our bathroom and it is well made.

We  bought a matching vessel faucet for the sink. It looks and works perfect. We have a friend who is an expert plumber and he installed the sink and faucet for us. It took him a couple of hours to remove the old sink and faucet and install the new one. It looks beautiful in our bathroom. The only problem is we might have to replace the toilet and bathtub to make the bathroom perfect. Such is life.

If you want to replace your sink faucet, you might want to check out vessel sink faucets. Their faucets are high quality faucets and good prices. Once you buy one, you will want to change all of your sinks and faucets in your house. The quality and looks of these sinks and faucets are incredible.

New Beginnings By Rebecca Emin Review and Giveaway 3/7/12


Eleven year old Sam has to go to a new school. She is nervous and she has every reason to be. When she goes to school, it is hard to make friends and one girl (Molly) has it out for her. It takes Sam awhile, but she finally finds friendship with Chloe who is one of her classmates in the new school. When on vacation with her parents, Sam meets a boy who is a computer nerd, but he can sing and act too. Both are very shy, but they begin a friendship between each other. This is the part of the story where the author brings in computer use. I like how the computer use is limited to email and educational activities.

The story continues with Sam learning how to deal with friendships while she is being hurt constantly by Molly in her school. The story shows how Sam is nervous each morning when she has to go to school because of the bullying situation. Sam meets a man who teaches her about self-defensive, she gets an opportunity to get the leading roll in a show opposite her friend Nathan whom she met on vacation with her parents. The story shows how bullying is horrible and how to deal with it. I remember dealing with bullying when I was a child and it is hard to tell your parents, friends and teachers what is happening to you.

By the time eleven year old Sam turns twelve, she has a group of close friends, she has dealt with the bullying problem and she becomes successful in her young acting and singing career. The best part of this story is that it gives hope to young pre-teens and teens at a most difficult time in their lives. It shows them how to deal with bullying, how to and not use the internet and the importance of real friendships. The book is clean and should easily be read by children ten and above.

There are companies who have affordable seo services. There are other companies that will guarantee you results. There are few companies that offer both. Those are the companies you want working for you when you need their services. These are the companies who are in it for the long haul. They want your business now and in the future.

I love being a blogger. I love watching my rankings getting better. I think it is a numbers thing for me. There are many SEO companies out there who are willing to work for you. If you need SEO services, you would be wise to pick the best. Save some money and have one of the better ranking websites on the internet.

Horizon Dairy Review and Giveaway 2/29/2012


Horizon Dairy sent me a prize pack to review and giveaway. The prize pack includes three coupons for their products, a pen, a book to write in and a nice Horizon bag (which my wife already stole from me and took to work). It took us a few days, but we finally made it to the store to buy their products. We went to Publix, they had whole milk, 2 percent milk, fat free milk and cheese slices. We love chocolate milk, so we picked up two half gallons of chocolate milk and one half gallon of fat free milk.



Horizon milk is produced without using antibiotics, added hormones, pesticides, cloning, synthetic colors or artificial flavors. This means, they produce organic milk. This makes for a healthy environment that supports healthy cows, healthy family farms, healthy communities and a healthier planet. It also makes for one delicious tasting organic milk.

My fifteen year old daughter said their 1 percent chocolate milk best. Horizon chocolate milk tastes like you are drinking a chocolate bar in liquid form. The Horizon chocolate milk only has 90 calories, 2.5 grams of fat and 1.5 grams of saturated fat, no trans fat. It has 10 mg of cholesterol, 140 mg of sodium and 410 mg of potassium, 26 grams of sugar and 8 grams of protein. This organic milk is also filled with healthy vitamins that are good for you and your family. The fat free milk is perfect for smoothies. It has only 90 calories, no fat, 12 grams of sugar and 9 grams of protein. This is a great way to start out an organic protein shake.


Here's what you get in every delicious serving
Excellent source of hard to get, plant-based DHA
Excellent source of calcium and vitamin D to support healthy bones
8 essential nutrients for growing bodies

This giveaway is for the same prize pack I received. Three coupons for Horizon products, a pen, a writing tablet and a nice reusable Horizon bag. Another cool part of this giveaway is their Find Happy Contest which is listed below-when you like their Facebook, find Happy the Cow



“Find Happy Contest”:
·         What it is: A tab on the Horizon Facebook page through which fans have a chance to win a trip to Jamaica by helping to locate Happy, the Horizon cow gracing all Horizon packaging.
·         Through the app, consumers are asked to answer daily questions about Horizon to help unlock a series of maps that will eventually zero in on Happy’s location. The first 50 people who correctly identify Happy’s location will be entered to win a trip to Jamaica – and there are opportunities for other prizes along the way too.
·         As you will see when you visit the page, the map has already zoomed in several levels – making now a great time for your readers to get in on the action.

What's Better Than A Trellis Filled With Beautiful Roses

Florida is a great place to build a garden. I love roses because they look great and smell beautiful. The aroma of roses reminds me of my late mother because they were her favorite flowers. She would love to go out to the garden and watch the rose bushes as they grew up the trellis. She would pick some of the roses and bring them into the house. I still remember the smell.

I love to go outside and look at our garden trellis when it is filled with beautiful roses. To me they are the most beautiful flowers in the world. I remember one time as a little boy I went into the neighbors garden and picked all of their roses so I could give them to my mother. She smiled, but told me it was wrong to steal roses from the neighbors. I broke one of their trellises and we had to pay for it. I guess it is the thought that counts.

Valentine's Day is one of the most popular days to give roses to your wife or girlfriend. I love roses each and every day because they remind me of the times when my mother would smile the most. I will always remember how roses made my mother happy.

Corn Souffle Recipe

Ingredients:
1 green bell pepper, chopped up
1/2 cup of chopped onion
(I skip the bell pepper and onion because i'd rather have it plain and hate cooked peppers and onions)
1/2 cup of margarine
1 16 ounce of whole kernel corned, drained
1 16 ounce can of creamed corn
3 eggs lightly beaten
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1 6 ounce package of corned bread mix

Saute the green pepper and onion in the margarine in a skillet until the onion is tender. Again, I pass by this step because of my taste. Remove from heat. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Stir in the whole kernel corn and the cream-styled corn. Add the corn bread mix and eggs and mix well. Spoon into a greased 9x13 baking dish. I use Pam, but you can use vegetable oil or olive oil. Sprinkle the cheese on top and bake in the 325 degree oven for 45 minutes. Let stand for at least five minutes to cool and serve. Serves 8-12 people....


Check Out The Cool Promotional Items At Branders

Are you looking for that perfect promotional company to promote your logo. Branders is not only the biggest promotional company they have all kinds of promotional items that will fit any company. The right promotional products can show people what your company is really about. If you decide on a promotional company, you should decide on a company that has put more logos on more items than any other online promotional company.

After you decide you want your logo on a promotional item, you need to decide what promotional product is best for your business. I believe promotional sunglasses could fit nearly any company because nearly everybody wears sunglasses in today's world. You could also hook your people up with promotional keychains. This way they can have their car keys on a keychain that has your company logo on it.

I love promotional companies like Branders because they have so many cool promotional products to choose from. I love sunglasses, keychains and basketballs as promotional items. You may choose something different like Branders clothing line or their promotional pens. Whatever you decide, you will know you picked the right company when you pick Branders

My Children love animals and one day a family of young ducklings decided to show up for a visit.



My children had fun with the ducklings until their mother made them go into the lake behind our house and take a bath. This is another fun memory my children have from nature......

Valentines Card From My Five Year Old Daughter

Khloe and Daddy

The Importance of Medical Training Courses

Medical training is a growing field because people involved in medicine are required to keep up with their field. This means the people who teach doctors and their staffs need to be qualified in this specialized training. They need to have the knowledge and ability to teach the latest education theories in the field of medicine. These are the people who teach the consultant medical interview course that helps teach the doctor how to interview and hire excellent employees.

Many doctors are deciding to enroll themselves and their staff into courses like the teach the teacher course and other medical teaching courses to keep their people aware of the latest education theories. This way they can better serve their patients into the future. These courses and the qualified teachers are important part of our society. Better trained doctors ultimately means better doctors.

These same doctors also enroll themselves in a medical management course so they can get the training they need to help them become better leaders. It is always nice to know your doctor has taken the required courses that give him/her the management and leadership qualifications to serve you and your community.

A Different Kind of Valentines Day

My wife decided to make dental appointments for my children on Valentines Day. My son is seven and he had to have a bunch of dental work done. We are busy and didn't realize how much they had to do. He had one tooth pulled, three crowns, three fillings and two baby root canals. He did well through the whole affair, but it put a damper on his Valentines Day. He could not eat any candy or hard food the entire day.

My daughter is five and she had to have a filling on Valentines Day. She couldn't stop talking about it. She wanted to bite into some Valentines candy and eat her Valentines cookie, but she couldn't. My wife had to get her teeth cleaned. Who would have thought the whole family going to the dentist on Valentines day.

I didn't get much rest the night before, so the day is a blur. My wife got flowers and a bunch of gifts I got for her on Listia. My two girls also got flowers from me because they are my girls. My son got a giant Valentines cookie and candy from his mother which we already discussed he could not eat. I actually received a card and Valentines candy from my wife.

I don't recommend going to the dentist on Valentines Day, but our family survived and our teeth are better for it. I guess the best present my children received was knowing they only have to go back to the dentist this year to get their teeth cleaned......
