A kitten that climbed up a tree in a Pastor's backyard and then was afraid to come down. The pastor coaxed, offered warm milk, etc.
The kitty would not come down. The tree was not sturdy enough to climb, so the pastor decided that if he tied a rope to his car and pulled it until the tree bent down, he could then reach up and get the kitten.
That's what he did, all the while checking his progress in the car. He then figured if he went just a little bit further, the tree would be bent sufficiently for him to reach the kitten. But as he moved the car a little further forward, the rope broke.
The tree went 'boing!' and the kitten instantly sailed through the air - out of sight.
The pastor felt terrible. He walked all over the neighborhood asking people if they'd seen a little kitten. No. Nobody had seen a stray kitten. So he prayed, 'Lord, I just commit this kitten to your keeping,' and went on about his business.
A few days later he was at the grocery store, and met one of his church members. He happened to look into her shopping cart and was amazed to see cat food. This woman was a cat hater and everyone knew it, so he asked her, 'Why are you buying cat food when you hate cats so much?'
She replied, 'You won't believe this,' and then told him how her little girl had been begging her for a cat, but she kept refusing. Then a few days before, the child had begged again, so the Mom finally told her little girl, 'Well, if God gives you a cat, I'll let you keep it.' She told the pastor, 'I watched my child go out in the yard, get on her knees, and ask God for a cat. And really, Pastor, you won't believe this, but I saw it with my own eyes. A kitten suddenly came flying out of the blue sky, with its paws outspread, and landed right in front of her.'
Never underestimate the Power of God and His unique sense of humor.
It's summer time. Time to find ways to keep the kids happy and active outside. This will be a great addition to any family!

Are you looking for something to entertain your kids for hours? PlasmaCar is it! My munchkins loved it. It's so easy to ride and it's powered by them. All they do is steer back and forth and they propel forward. Here's a video of Lily in action on it:
Not only is this car a best selling toy, it's unique in that it requires no batteries or pedals. It causes children to use natural forces of inertia, centrifugal force, and friction. And I love that the munchkins want to play outside instead of watching tv and/or play video games.
As you can see they all had a blast! Even my husband and I rode it! It can hold up to 220 lbs!
One lucky reader will win their very own Plasma Car! All you have to do is enter the rafflecopter below! Good luck!

To fully appreciate this you have to be old enough to remember the famous Abbott and Costello routine "Who's on first?" and too old to really understand computers. For anyone who sometimes gets flustered by their computer, please read on...
Costello Calls to Buy a Computer From Abbott
ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?
COSTELLO: Thanks. I'm setting up an office in my den and I'm thinking about buying a computer.
COSTELLO: No, the name's Lou.
ABBOTT: Your computer?
COSTELLO: I don't own a computer. I want to buy one.
COSTELLO: I told you, my name's Lou.
ABBOTT: What about Windows?
COSTELLO: Why? Will it get stuffy in here?
ABBOTT: Do you want a computer with Windows?
COSTELLO: I don't know. What will I see when I look at the windows?
COSTELLO: Never mind the windows. I need a computer and software.
ABBOTT: Software for Windows?
COSTELLO: No. On the computer! I need something I can use to write proposals, track expenses and run my business. What do you have?
COSTELLO: Yeah, for my office. Can you recommend anything?
ABBOTT: I just did.
COSTELLO: You just did what?
ABBOTT: Recommend something.
COSTELLO: You recommended something?
COSTELLO: For my office?
COSTELLO: OK, what did you recommend for my office?
COSTELLO: Yes, for my office!
ABBOTT: I recommend Office with Windows.
COSTELLO: I already have an office with windows! OK, let's just say I'm sitting at my computer and I want to type a proposal. What do I need?
COSTELLO: What word?
ABBOTT: Word in Office.
COSTELLO: The only word in office is office.
ABBOTT: The Word in Office for Windows.
COSTELLO: Which word in office for windows?
ABBOTT: The Word you get when you click the blue "W".
COSTELLO: I'm going to click your blue "W" if you don't start with some straight answers. OK, forget that. Can I watch movies on the Internet?
ABBOTT: Yes, you want Real One.
COSTELLO: Maybe a real one, maybe a cartoon. What I watch is none of your business. Just tell me what I need!
ABBOTT: Real One.
COSTELLO: If it's a long movie, I also want to watch reels 2, 3 and 4. Can I watch them?
ABBOTT: Of course.
COSTELLO: Great! With what?
ABBOTT: Real One.
COSTELLO: OK, I'm at my computer and I want to watch a movie. What do I do?
ABBOTT: You click the blue "1".
COSTELLO: I click the blue one what?
ABBOTT: The blue "1".
COSTELLO: Is that different from the blue W?
ABBOTT: The blue "1" is Real One and the blue "W" is Word.
COSTELLO: What word?
ABBOTT: The Word in Office for Windows.
COSTELLO: But there are three words in "office for windows"!
ABBOTT: No, just one. But it's the most popular Word in the world.
COSTELLO: It is?
ABBOTT: Yes, but to be fair, there aren't many other Words left. It pretty much wiped out all the other Words out there.
COSTELLO: And that word is real one?
ABBOTT: Real One has nothing to do with Word. Real One isn't even part of Office.
COSTELLO: STOP! Don't start that again. What about financial bookkeeping? You have anything I can track my money with?
COSTELLO: That's right. What do you have?
COSTELLO: I need money to track my money?
ABBOTT: It comes bundled with your computer.
COSTELLO: What's bundled with my computer?
COSTELLO: Money comes with my computer?
ABBOTT: Yes. No extra charge.
COSTELLO: I get a bundle of money with my computer? How much?
ABBOTT: One copy.
COSTELLO: Isn't it illegal to copy money?
ABBOTT: Microsoft gave us a license to copy Money.
COSTELLO: They can give you a license to copy money?
ABBOTT: Why not? THEY OWN IT!
(A few days later)
ABBOTT: Super Duper computer! store. Can I help you?
Do you like to play with your photos and make them into collages? Oh I love it. I love having several pictures into one. I love giving these as gifts to family and friends. However, finding a collage program that works and is simple is really hard to find.
But, I think I found one. I recently was able to review CollageIt. It starts out as a free edition and then you can pay to get Pro addition. There are a few reasons to go pro but you need to find what is best for you.
Extra benefits you will get
Remove watermark on the collage and say goodbye to the annoying splash screen! Crop photo. Remove size limit. FREE lifetime support. 30-day Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee.
Starting out the program only takes a few minutes to download. Once it is download and you open the program up it isn't confusing. You pick your collage and add your pictures and it does all the work for you. However, it does enable you to be able to change and manipulate the pictures to fit the way you want.
I am still learning the program and find more and more ways to use it. I spent $65 one time to have a company make a collage and print it out in the form of a poster. Now I can do it myself and just have the collage printed out.
There is an option that enables you to send your collages straight to Facebook or email and not just saving it onto the computer.
I gave a photographer friend of mine a copy of the program to use to see how she liked it. Photographers love using collages in their photography. She used and liked it. I even made a collage out of a photography session I had with her. The collage came out amazing!
Collage I made from photos from Heather Puett Photography

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
Pain is a part of my daily life. I have pelvis issues, Fybromyalgia, and foot pain. I resolved a long time ago to deal with out pain killers. Those things are nasty for you! So many side effects of long term use, dependency, and your body can get so used to them that they stop working after a while. I know some people need them for day today life, and to the people whole legitimately need them, I understand. I personally believe that most people on heavy pain killers don't "need" them, and can find alternative pain relief.
So, when the opportunity cam to review a topical cream for pain, I jumped on it!
Noxicare is available in tablets for all-over pain, or in a topical cream for localized pain. I was sent the topical cream to review.
What is in Noxicare?
Willow Bark: treats pain and inflammation
helps alleviate muscle strains, arthritis and rheumatism, and is a catalyst for improving the effectiveness of other herbs
Holy Basil: anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial and antiviral properties
Rosemary Extract: topical use for joint or musculoskeletal pain
Alpha Lipoic Acids: antioxidants used to treating diabetic neuropathy and increasing blood flow to the nerves
Boswellia Extract: anti-inflammatory used to treat arthritis and joint pain
The cream came at the best possible time. My husband had just thrown his back out at work. Time to put Noxicare to the test! My husband does concrete repair. He managed to mess his back up pretty good. Bad enough that he missed a day of work for it. Even though Noxicare clams to be odourless, I have seen so many "odourless" products that need a nose plug to use. I was pleasantly surprised! There really is NO ODOUR! Even my skeptic husband had to admit relief from me massaging him with the cream. After a few applications, he was moving and sleeping better. I noticed relief after 1 application as well. It wasn't an immediate thing, but soon after applied, I realized the pain had subsided.

The first way I tried my Hemp Hearts was on my morning yogurt. They added a pleasant crunch, and I noticed I was less hungry at lunch! I have tried to include Hemp Hearts into my daily diet for 2 weeks now, and have noticed a raise in my energy levels. My husband and children have even requested to have them added to their salads too.
