The most fun and excitement you can have online. I am talking about online, real time horse races that you can legally bet on. Yes, online horse racing is legal!

Derby Jackpot is so easy. You do not need to know anything about horse racing. It has inspired me to start reading up on horses and how the betting works.

I told my doctor it is my new cardio training. Sitting at the computer and jumping up and down to cheer and assist the horse you bet on to move on down the track is very exciting.

My new goal in life.................
win enough to buy my own race horse. Why not? Try it, I think you will love it as much as I do.

A Great Holiday Gift For The Men In Your Family

The holidays are just around the corner and we want our men to look nice at all the parties. And of course it is essential they dress sharp for work. I haven't found any better deals than the ones at Paul Fredrick.

They have dress shirts, ties, suits, trousers, and sport shirts that fit your man, his lifestyle, and budget. This is good because I have a big man and a small budget.

Paul Fredrick offers an entire collection of polished, relevant wardrobe options to men. A perfect fit is guaranteed. If not, exchange it for Free. How many companies do you know that do that? Try them, I think you will be glad you did.

Tusco Products RR30SS Rolled Rim Garden Pot

I bought three of these Tusco Products RR30SS Rolled Rim Garden Pots, 30-Inches in the color Sandstone.

First of all I want to state that these are very well made and sturdy pots. They are made of a good heavy plastic. But I ended up replacing them with a different product. I knew that they had no drainage holes and that the color was not my first choice but I ordered because the color Sandstone was cheaper.

But I just wasn’t happy with the color or size so I moved them around to unseen part of my yard and planted my tomatoes in them.

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye

I purchased  Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye in the hopes that it might lift my lids a little and lighten the darkness under my eyes. I have only been using it for two weeks now but I believe that when I look in the mirror in the morning I look more refreshed than usual. The whole eye area just seems not as dark and tired.

I experienced no rashes or reactions at all to the cream. I believe that I will up my usage to twice a day to help speed up the transformation. I really believe if I can notice a difference after only using it once a day for two weeks, things can only improve more by the time I have used up the whole tube of cream.

I don’t feel I have used this product long enough to give it a . But will be back to amend my rating after I used it all up.

Nature's Way Magnesium Complex

My mother’s doctor recommend that she take magnesium for leg cramps. So when I started getting really bad leg cramps at night while sleeping, I started taking the Nature's Way Magnesium Complex, 100 Capsules. Just a day and as long as I remember to take it, I don’t have cramps. Well worth it to me since the cramps really, really hurt. I have a hard time swallowing pills so am happy that they are in capsule form. I tell everyone I know that complains of leg cramps to try Magnesium, it works!

Carhartt Women's Rockford Windbreaker

I broke the zipper on my old trusty windbreaker/raincoat that I won in a poker tournament years ago. I am not a fashion diva. I like clothes that are functional and comfortable. The shopping in my area is very limited so I went online to search for a new jacket.

I fully expected that I would have to try several items and return them before I found an acceptable one. But the first one i picked turned out to be the perfect choice.
The Carhartt Women's Rockford Windbreaker that I purchased is nice and lightweight with a mesh like lining. I got it in black because I don’t like bright colors. I can adjust the sleeve tightness with snaps. There is a handy extra pocket on the inside.

I am short but busty and like my clothes on the loose side. I ordered the x-large and for me it fits perfect with enough room to wear sweaters and etc under it.The one thing I don’t really care for is the sort of rubber label sewn on the front of the jacket. And I may try to remove it some time. But on the whole I am very happy with my purchase.

Bloem MP2428-52 Milano Planter

I purchased four of these planters to replace some rotten half barrels I had in my yard. I was not happy with the plants that were growing in them and by the time I had managed to get the plants out of the barrels, I realized the whole bottoms had rotted out.

So off I went to the few places we have to shop at to get some big pots. There none to be found but I did find these Bloem MP2428-52 Milano Planter, 28-Inch in a green color which is my favorite color.

I am extremely happy with my purchase. The planters are of good quality and had the drainage holes in them. So all I had to do was fill them up, sit back and enjoy.

Omron 7 Series Wireless Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor (Model BP654)

I have high blood pressure that I have finally gotten under control with the proper medications. My doctor likes me to take my blood pressure every day, record it and bring it in when I see him.
I am a retired bookkeeper and have had my fill of keeping daily records. So I decided to upgrade my original Omron blood pressure wrist cuff with this one, the Omron 7 Series Wireless Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor (Model BP654). Now I don't put off checking my pressure. It makes everything so simple, just take pressure, go to my cell phone app and push transfer. I then retrieves my pressure reading from the cuff to the phone and my onronwellness account online within seconds.
When it's time to go to the doctor, all I do is go to my account, print up my pressure report and off I go.
Very easy and fun to use. I had no problems connecting the bluetooth to my somewhat older android cell phone. I am very pleased with my purchase and highly recommend it to others.

I received this product for free for the purpose of my review from Smily360. The opinions below are 100% my own.

I dislike swallowing large pills and thought the Caltrate Gummy Bites would just the thing for me.

Unfortunately, I cannot say that this is a product that I can recommend to others.

It is suggested that you take a total of four of these Gummy Bites per day.

The list of ingredients is more than double what is in my regular calcium supplements. Included in the extra ingredients are, corn syrup, sucrose, triglycerides, invert sugar and a other things that I don't think I want to ingest four times a day.

And although is a mention of calcium and Vitamin 3D, it does not say how much or if it even meets the daily suggested requirements.

I don't eat candy four times a day and I don't want to take four Caltrate Gummy Bites per day. And I would also suggest to the manufacturer, that these are packaged in child proof containers as children may mistake them for candy.

It Worked !

I have not yet had an occasion to use the free sample of the Orajel Single Dose Cold Sore Treatment that I received from Smiley360. But over the Thanksgiving holiday, my granddaughter thought she was starting to get a cold sore so I gave her one of the two sample doses to try. She thought it definitely helped because it numbed the area which in turn led to her not feeling the need to touch it. I have since spoken to her and she was happy to report that she thought the Orajel "scared away" the cold sore.

Schwarzkopf got2b POWER'ful Volumizing Styling Powder

For many years I got my hair permed for body and volume. But I eventually developed an allergy to the permanent solution and had to stop. And that is when the search began for a product that would give my fine, limp hair some height and volume.

When I received my got2b POWER'ful volumizing styling powder made by Schwarzkopf from BzzAgent, I was anxious to see the results. On the package it states, shake a small amount of the powder in your palm, rub your hands together, distribute on the roots of your hair. I followed directions and did indeed have more volume in 10 seconds. But not dramatically more. To be fair, I am probably not a good person to conduct this test because I have quite short hair.

The second time I tried got2b Power'ful volumizing styling powder, I followed the tip for an extra volume boost and sprinkled some of the powder directly on the roots of my hair.

First of all, I would like to state that I regularly use the Schwarzkopf Thicker Fuller Hair Shampoo and Conditioner and it is my favorite shampoo and conditioner.

I would perhaps use the got2b POWER'ful volumizing styling powder occasionally for a fast lift when I was in a hurry. But I did not care for the feeling of the product on my hair. I felt it dulled the shine and made my scalp itch somewhat. It also made it impossible to run my fingers or even a brush through my hair.

For my personal choice, I will continue to use a mousse type product for volume.

This product was received from BzzAgent for my testing and review.

Rite Aid

It seems that Rite Aid has a new message "With Us, It's Personal". Well, when it concerns me and my money, "With Me, It's Personal".

Watch your receipts carefully people, and don't trust the clerk when you ask if you received your buy one, get one free deals. They will say yes and then when you get home, which is some distance away, you see that you didn't.

You will also find that they often say buy one, get one free, but then there is ONLY one of the item on the shelf.

Rite Aid, this is my warning to you..............start stocking your shelves with the advertised sale items.  And beware, cheat me out of my money again and you will lose me as a customer forever.

Incompetent Company Called Safeway

Well, I must begin this blog with my weekly complaint about Safeway grocery stores. In particular the one that I am stuck having to use is the community that I currently live in.

Every week I drive into town to do my weekly shopping. I have been drinking Pepsi Cola for basically most of my life excluding an occasional drink of water.

Every single week, I must find a clerk and send them back into the storeroom to look for Diet Pepsi. Why is it so hard for them to keep their shelves stocked? The empty space is there waiting for the Diet Pepsi....but no one in Safeway feels that they should make it convenient for me me to purchase them.

I could rant on and on about how much I dislike Safeway but I would consider saying a kind word about them if I ever once can find Diet Pepsi on the shelves.
