No, no - you can't enter to win this one because my mail lady delivered it to me today! Woohoo! I won the DVD from Flickhead!
My first thought was " wow, I haven't listened to any Dylan in quite awhile". My second thought was " probably about 25 years!"
As a child of the 50's and raising hell in the early 70's, Dylan was a staple in the old cassette player. But alas, The Times They Are A-Changing! Now if I Lay, Lady,Lay I'm most likely in the recliner. And if anyone is "firing one up" It Ain'T Me Babe, mine will likely be the heating pad! All that past has gone Blowing In The Wind. But before I go Knockin On Heavens Door I'm going to hit the recliner and relive the days one more time! So, Don't Think Twice, Its Alright.I'll have all the fun I can stand!!
While surfing some blogs for new giveaways I came across Playsational. If you have kids and/or grandkids be sure to check this one out. There are several giveaways listed for DVD's and childrens educational books. There are also printable coloring pages, crafts, games and kids recipes. Theres a LOT of info here, so take the time to look around!

Wow! Now this has to be a great product!The mop is lightweight and has a swivel head which allows you to get into hard-to-reach corners where microbes love to hang out. You can use the mop on any type of floor and it comes with an attachment for carpet cleaning. The microfiber pads are hand and machine–washable. I recommend several since you’ll definitely use them. I love that I can mop the floor, wait for it to cool and dry, and not worry that I am exposing my son to harmful chemicals. I also appreciate the fact that I the product cleans without harming the environment.I know we all love to have one of these. You can enter to win here:

In the last few months my doctor had started harping on me about fiber. You know how those doctors get - like a dog with a bone once they get started! Everytime she brings it up I get thinking about cardboard, twigs and bran, then I forget about it by the time I exit her office! I'm surprised she didn't write me a costly perscription by now!
Anyway, I was contacted recently and asked if I was interested in doing a review for Fiber One Chewy Bars...and my first thought was that my doctor had set me up! But no, it was from the wonderful folks at General Mills! Well, General Mills has had great products for years, so count me in!
I received a wonderful basket with not only a box of Fiber One Chocolate Mocha Bars, but also all kinds of chocolate spa goodies! There is chocolate scented soap, candle, bath salts, lotion and a bath pillow! How fun is that?
My spa basket sat over the weekend since I had grandkids here and I wanted to actually try these myself! So this morning I got the basket out to check it all out.Setting all the spa goodies aside I noticed right off that the box says "35% of your daily value of fiber", which my doctor will love but I was still sceptical! When I've tried these bar type snacks in the past they were always hard so I grabbed a cup of hot chocolate, just in case! Surprise! I was wrong! Very wrong! These bars are soft and chewy and taste SO good! They have chocolate chips, rolled oats and a honey taste with just a hint of coffee flavor!
I'm thinking maybe these could be a good breakfast for people on the run!Easy to drop in a purse or backpack or maybe hubbys briefcase or lunchbox! By the way...I didn't need the hot chocolate, but it sure went nicely with the bar! I'm planning on another tomorrow morning!
