Survey Opportunity Be Entered To Win 1 of 20 $25 Visa Cards

If you have 15 minutes to share your food buying and grocery shopping habits (with the bonus option of entering to win one of 20 VISA gift cards worth $25), please check out this survey from my friends at The Motherhood:

The results from the survey will be presented at a conference later this month, and your feedback will play a huge part in influencing executives at major food brands and companies as they make decisions regarding product development and prioritizing the issues that are important to moms.

There’s an option to submit your email address at the end of the survey – anyone who completes the survey and provides an email address will be entered to win one of 20 VISA gift cards worth $25. (The email address is just a way to notify the gift card winners and won’t be shared.)

Thanks in advance for your help! If you’d like, you are welcome to share the survey with other moms, too!!!

Which Portable Computer Suits Your Needs - Notebook, Netbook, Ultrabook, & Tablet

With back to school going on some schools require that students have a laptop. What does this mean for parents? This means you are about to invest in some sort of portable computer and should know the difference among classes of laptops. Some laptops are geared for just web surfing, fine tuned for hard core gaming, or touch screen capable and no thicker than a pad of paper. Among them all is the perfect one to fit your budget and your family's needs.

The term laptop has become some what of a generic term for simply meaning a "portable computer".  The word does not specifically mean a computer to set on your lap, as there have been cases that doing so has caused second degree burns to legs and laps due to the heat thrown from the bottom of one of these portable computers. There are many different classes of laptops and I'm going to break down each type for you to allow you to better understand what exactly each type was made to do. From there you'll be able to make a  more informed educated decision on which device is best suited for your family's needs and also which device fits into your family's budget.

5 Year Old Isabella Sara Tennant - Fundraising - Laid To Rest Today A Victim Of A Tragic Murder

It has been a somber week here in the Western New York Area as a community is in shock and mourns the loss of a precious little girl. On Monday a news alert came out around 9 am alerting viewers of a missing 5 year old little girl in Niagara Falls. Within a few hours the grim discovery was then announced that her body had been recovered in a garbage can a few blocks away from where she was spending the night at her Great Grandmother's house. This story and horrific incident hit home HARD. The little 5 yr old girl is Isabella Tennant. I've know Isabella's Dad, Mike, for what is 20 years now. My girlfriends and I hung out with him and his friends. Ohh the younger years! They were wonderful. I crossed Mike's path all the time out and about, whether it was at a bar or some local event. He was always Mr Smiley a smile to which was passed right onto his daughter. I even one time met "Bella" as she was so fondly called, I believe she was 3 or 4 at the time. Mike's birthday was Tuesday not to mention he is getting married soon. My friend my heart physically aches for you and I wish there was something more I could do. 

Bella's precious body was laid to rest today with over a thousand people showing up to pay their respect and condolences. People whom the family knew and also people who they didn't. The outpouring from the community just makes your heart heal just a little bit.
