The Room Mate


 I sometimes wonder where I went wrong with my kids. The other morning Airborne woke up with a bad case of allergies. Coughing , sore throat, runny nose, the works. So I started the hot water for his Cream of Wheat. I got out the Delsym, for his cough. I got out cough drops for his sore throat. I got out one of those little packets of tissues for his runny nose. Then I stepped back and said " WOW, I really take good care of you don't I?"

Airborne replied "Yes mommy you are an awesome mom." This kid could charm birds out of the trees.

"What are you going to do when you grow up and move away. Who will take care of you then?" Silly me I was hoping that he would say something like "I will know how to take good care of myself because you taught me so well mommy." But no. That was not his answer.

Airborne answered "I will get a Room Mate."

I looked at him and replied "Sweetie Room Mates do not take care of you when you are sick and stuff they just share the apartment with you."

" Oh," He says..." Well I still want a Room Mate."

Vendange Carmel Inn and Suites has partnered with 14 local Monterey County wineries to create a unique guest experience celebrating the bounty of Monterey County’s vineyards. Each winery sponsors one room or suite, providing its own creative touches. From the McIntyre Vineyards room with its impressive 100-year-old section of grapevine to J. Lohr’s plush bathrobes, every winery’s room offers a signature luxury experience.  For 2014, Vendange has announced the release of its first new wine themed for 2014 with Blair Estate Winery.

Its Prom Time Again

 I am a mom of boys so you would think that I would not be all that interested in Prom fashion for girls. Well you would be wrong. Because I am a mom of boys I am very interested in what the girls are wearing ...or not wearing, when they are out with my sons.

I believe that you can be beautiful and classy on Prom night. Call me old fashioned but I do not want my son going to prom with a girl who looks like she is ready to go on the stroll. Please keep your daughters WHO HAS covered and their boobs inside their dress.

With this in mind I thought I would reccomend some elegant Prom Wear. the dresses are all from eShakti.com, an online retailer offering the unique benefit of customization, allowing teens of all sizes to customize their dress to their exact measurements at an affordable cost These dresses can all be customized by adding sleeves, a scalloped neckline, extending or shortening  the length and more. With eShakti’s customization options, prom go-ers can be sure that their dress will be one of a kind on this special night.

The Jewelry, and what is Prom with out FABULOUS Jewelry, is all by SuperJeweler, the premier online retail destination for jewelry at discount prices.

So moms save a buck and cover up.

Canadian Citizen Groups Join USA Private Sector Funding Movement to Strengthen Opportunity for Canada’s Youth



I am always looking for smart innovative ways for schools and youth programs ot raise money to keep going. I came across this idea a little while back and have blogged about it before but look what they are doing in Canada.



Canadian Citizen Groups Join USA Private Sector Funding Movement to Strengthen Opportunity for Canada's Youth



Youth in Canada will now have more opportunity thanks to a new private sector alliance between a group of independent Canadian business owners and Pomeroy Equitable Solutions LLC (PES), a US based company that created the youth funding movement Swipe4TheKids

The goal of this International alliance is to redistribute credit and debit card bank processing fees to help fund Canadian youth initiatives, which is a high priority in all Canadian Provinces. Coralee Oakes, Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, recognizes the importance of investing in our youth: “Through BC Creative Futures strategy, we are annually investing $6.25 million in programs that foster a creative workforce by providing arts opportunities to young British Columbians. I encourage you to continue working in partnership with British Columbia’s business community to further develop Swipe4TheKids in the province,” encouraged Oakes.
