Mission Giveaway: Captain and Amazon Gift Card

I love to read. Sadly, I married a man who doesn't, so I have not read as much as I used to over the last few years. That combined with kids...where does the time go? When I do read, I like to be taken away to the place I am reading about, to be lost in the book, don't you? So how do you find new books? After reading about cars and princesses all day, where do you find a grown up book to be lost in?
I recently began reading Captain, and I am happily lost in a book again.
Just reading the first chapter had me captivated!
Who wants to win it?


Grand Prize: 2 Prize Packs containing: A signed copy of Captain and a $25 Amazon Gift Card. One to win and one to give. 


Can't wait to read it? You can find the book on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and direct from the ThomasBlockNovels website. Here are two great reviews of Captain from Pittsburgh Frugal Mom and Living at the Whitehead's Zoo.

Drink Chia Prize Pack Giveaway


Thank you to SaraLee's Deals Steals & Giveaways for hosting this giveaway!
I am a firm believer in Omega 3 health benefits, and this is a great way to boost your daily intake. 

We are guided by the relentless focus to inspire people to be engaged in their health, try new things, seek adventure, and be active in their communities.
Everything begins with our “Shake it Baby” concept. It implies two things:
1. To shake the drink up, and
2. To get out and make things happen, to do something productive and meaningful, to make a difference.
We don’t want the seeds to settle in the bottle…settling implies going nowhere, being complacent. So…
Be active, be mindful of your health, your family, and the world around you!

I want to say my husband was very surprised over the Drink Chia. At fist my husband crinkled his nose up and was like oh boy this isn't going to taste good but as soon as he took a sip he smiled and was said "Wow this is really good." My husband drank the bottle before work and called me on his first break saying that he felt really good and liked the way the Chia drink made him feel. On the forth day of drinking Chia he was in a better mood at work and he felt a little more energized in the morning. Now this week he is grumpy and you can tell so I went and ordered more for him. I wish they sold this in health stores buy me.



Now for the giveaway: One lucky person will win a Drink Chia Prize Pack (1 of bottle of each flavor & a T-shirt). This is open World Wide and ends 8/09/12 @ 11:59 pm est. To enter, simply do the tasks on the Rafflecopter widget below and you're set to have a chance to win!

Silly Saturday


Sitting on the side of the highway waiting to catch speeding drivers, a Police Officer sees a car puttering along at 22 KPH. 
Says he to himself: "This driver is just as dangerous as a speeder!" 

So he turns on his lights and pulls the driver over.
 
Approaching the car, he notices that there are five old ladies, 
two in the front seat and three in the back...wide eyed and white as ghosts.

The driver, obviously confused, says to him "Officer, I don't understand, I was doing exactly the speed limit!
What seems to be the problem?"

"Ma'am," the officer replies, "you weren't speeding, but you should know that driving slower than
 the speed limit can also be a danger to other drivers."

"Slower than the speed limit? No sir, I was doing the speed limit exactly...Twenty-two kilometers an hour!"
  ..the old woman says a bit proudly. 

The Police officer, trying to contain a chuckle explains to her that 22 is the highway number, not the speed limit.

A bit embarrassed, the woman grins and thanks the officer for pointing out her error.

"But before I let you go, Ma'am, I have to ask...Is everyone in this car OK?
  These women seem awfully shaken, and they haven't made a peep this whole time," the officer asks.

"Oh, they'll be all right in a minute officer. We just got off Highway 189.."

Silly Saturday: The Customer is Not Always Right


Is the customer "always right?" 

Customer: “Can I have a glass of water?”
 Server: “Sure.”
 *gets him cup of water*
 Customer: “Are we in Woburn?”
 Server: “Yes.”
 Customer: “Oh, so is this, uh, Woburn water?”
 Server: *sigh* “Yes.”
 Customer: “Didn’t this stuff kill people?”
 Server: “That was years ago.”
Customer: “No, I think it was very recent.”
 Server: “No, the movie was just released very recently. The water’s fine now.”
 Customer: “I’d rather not take my chances. Can I get a bottle of water instead with a cup of ice?”
 Server: “You know where ice comes from, right?”
 Customer: “Huh?”
 Server: “Never mind. Enjoy.”
*hands them bottle of water and ice made from Woburn water*


 While passing through airport security, a passenger’s bag needs to be pulled because the x-ray operator sees an obvious big bottle of water when the limit is 3.4 oz.)

Security: “Whose bag is this?”
 Passenger: “Oh! Oh! Oohhh! It’s mine! Is there something wrong?”
 Security: “I just need to take a quick look inside, ma’am. This shouldn’t take more than a couple of minutes.”
 Passenger: “Well, hurry. I think they’re boarding my plane.”
 *Opens her bag and find the bottle almost immediately. She gasps as it is pulled out.*
 Security: “Ma’am, I’m afraid you cannot have this beyond this point.”
 Passenger: “Why not? I just bought it, and it’s unopened!”
 Security: “Ma’am, the rules clearly state that you cannot have any liquids over 3.4 oz in your carry on. If you’d like to, you could–”
 Passenger: “But that’s not a liquid!”
 Security: “Excuse me, ma’am?”
 Passenger: “It’s not a liquid! It’s water! W-A-T-E-R! You know, H-2-O? For the love of God, don’t they hire anyone with more than a grade school education for security?”

Tropic Mind Review and Giveaway Ends 07/20


Tropic Mind is an educational virtual world for kids, where learning becomes an adventure. As a home-schooling mom, I am always excited to check out educational sites. Unfortunately, most websites are more social based, and don't offer the educational content I am looking for. What good is a web site for kids if they can zip through it all in an hour, and come away not learning a thing?
Tropic Mind is different. The social aspect is there, but so are the educational aspects. Each island in the Tropic mind world offers a different subject for kids to learn about. The subjects vary from the circulation system,world history, physics, and even religion. Kids can watch an animation, teaching them about the subject, or play a game. The animations are cute, and keep the kids engaged. Even though Tropic Mind is geared for children 8 and up, my 3 and 5 year old enjoy watching the cartoons with their older brothers.




One thing my kids are enjoying is the pet they adopted. Children adopt a pet, who then lives on their island. They then have to feed, clean, and play with this pet. This is where my boys keep coming back to.
While playing the games, members earn coins that can be spent on items for their island. They can buy toys for their pets, clothing, or decorate to show their personality. My boys are asking every day to play more on Tropic Mind, and are proud of the coins they have earned. The greatest part is, they are remembering what they are learning! 


Membership at Tropic Mind offers your child tons of extra features: 
  • Each member has their own island they can design with as many items the want
  • Create and sell art work created in the workshop
  • VIP items available to members only
  • Tropic Lab offers animated instructions of science experiments they can do at home
  • Privet chat room
  • Contests for members only
I am very pleased with my families experience at Tropicmind.com.  My kids are asking to play on the site all day! Not a bad way to spend those summer days when it's too hot or rainy out side!

Tropic Mind focuses on safety for our children. The on-line world is a scary place for kids. Tropic Mind puts our children's safety first. All uploaded content is strictly check to be sure it is appropriate, and all comments and messages are put through a language filtering system before they can be published.
