When shopping with young children please use the seat belts and child seats in buggies. I have seen children almost fall out or climb out themselves. You know it only "takes a second" for something awful to happen.

Walgreen Drug Stores offer a monthly easy saver rebate where you can usually get 1 -3 items free of charge after rebate. This offer is so good they usually are out of the "freebies" the first week of the month. It's best to buy during the middle of the month after they restock. They will have a small easy-saver flyer as you enter the store that features the monthly specials.

Ice cream is the perfect dessert for a barbecue, and easy to serve if you scoop it ahead of time and put the scoops in cupcake liners, then freeze. Pop a scoop or two of ice cream into a bowl and add some sliced strawberries or peaches!

If you want juicy sliced berries, add a little sugar or corn syrup to them and let them chill in the fridge until you are ready to eat them. The sugar brings out the sweetness and the juice.

We love to visit the beach in the summer and inevitably everyone gets covered in sand. My toddler hates the feeling of having the sand rubbed/brushed off his skin (especially if the sand is really wet and hard to get off).

Leave a few grocery bags by your door. If you are working outside or forget something you can just slip them over your shoes so you don't have to take them off before walking across the floors and carpets.
Keep Grocery Bags By Your Door
Penny is a black and tan dachshund. She was the runt of her mother's second litter in August '95. We had both her mother and father and since we had to bottle feed her puppy milk we had to keep her! She enjoys walks in the local park!

Not sure if this qualifies for a pet, but I feed and water them just as I do my other pets. Only problem is the squirrels get up before I do. This is what I saw out my kitchen window this morning as I was pouring my first cup of coffee. The jar has popcorn in it and I usually spread it out on the blocks, but guess he was hungry and the blocks were bare. <p align="left">Once I fed them, the other 10 or 12 showed up for breakfast buffet.

I have heard about emails from far away countries asking for help. They say if i would help them then they will give me lots of money. I have not given into the scam BUT I know there is a place to forward these scams to or something. In fact there was an expose on TV a few nights ago but I dont know the station it was on. Please be cautious when reading these emails.
Where Can I Forward Scam Emails?

This will be the 3rd summer since I have planted English ivy (hedera helix) outside to climb up a 6-foot stockade fence. So far, it has only reached about halfway up this fence, and it seems to me that it should be taller at this point.

I live in a small neighborhood in Southeastern Louisiana not far from the Mississippi river. This morning I was going to take my bath and I discovered (or at least my cat did) a black snake curled up by the tub. I didn't touch it!
