So tired of Dr. Oz and Hollywood selling us stuff!

20130927_123513

Remember when Dr. Oz first started his show; he would not promote any third party product. I heard him many times say he did not believe in promoting health products for companies. Now over the past year, it least, maybe longer than that, all I get is e-mails, calls, and advertisements everywhere about what Dr. Oz is promoting.

Green coffee bean extract, Garcinia Cambogia and some wrinkle cream. This is just what I have heard about lately, I think there was also some Raspberry tablet a year or two back as well.

I am finding Facebook ads, Google ads, you name it and frankly I am tired of it!http://btrbb.com/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/wordpress/img/trans.gif Continue reading

Does sending in FASFA cost?

MS Word Clipart

I have been kicking around the idea of whether or not I want to go back to school. I am on the fence about it, but figured I might as well feel out my FASFA (student loan paperwork) just in case I decided to go.

I learned something today and I wanted to share before anyone else gets, or almost gets roped into PAYING to send in their FASFA!http://btrbb.com/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/wordpress/img/trans.gifI know for a fact that I have NEVER paid for FASFA in the past. I have a Master’s degree so I have probably filled out those forms about a dozen times. Heck…I filled them out before the Internet came to be.

I went to FASFA.com and filled it all out and BAM…they wanted around Continue reading

MS Word Clipart

I haven’t posted for a long time. I have been down with the nasty head cold, flu and then bronchitis, for just about a month now. Good lord it has been nasty. I have spent a lot of down time watching TV by myself and with the kiddos during my sickness and I have to say that I am NOT loving the cartoons these days.

I used to love cartoons when I was a kid but now I feel like I need to monitor the cartoon channel before I let my kids watch them. There are three different shows that come to question over the past month. Continue reading

Domain Registraton…Beware Before You Renew!

domain mailingIf you have any kind of website at all you have to renew the domain yearly. If you have a hosting service then you can do this right through the hosting service. I actually bought my domains for between $9.99-$13.99 per year through my hosting service.

The auto renew as well, if I choose them to do so for the same price I bought them for, so right now I pay about $13.99 per year for my domain and about $85 a year for my hosting service. I get unlimited domains with my hosting service and probably have 30-domains so it costs me about $5-$6 a year per domain to host.

What is the reason for this post…well, glad you asked…lol. It is about all the “Crap” “Spam” mailing I get and it makes me mad! So I got this letter in the mail last year. Continue reading

Having kids is great and I love it! However there is one thing that I don’t love, well actually fear a little bit…well actually more then one thing:

* Play dates

* Sleep overs

* Babysitting others parents kids

This may sound rather “crappy” of me and negative but there are good reasons for this fear. Continue reading

Had to beg for my refund…and still had to dispute.

SECOND & THIRD UPDATE BELOW TOO:

OK so my last post about blog giveaways being a bust sometimes got a lot of response and I am glad to announce that most of the time, people really do get their prizes. There are the odd times they don’t but I guess like anything in this world you win some, you lose some…literally in this case.

Here is what ignited my last post.

I won a giveaway back in February and I did not use the coupon code until months later, August to be exact. I was worried it might have expired but it hadn’t as I was able to shop and use the code and it gave me the 100% discount. I did get charged for shipping which I thought was ridiculous for a blog giveaway as that is usually not the etiquette but seeing that the business cards were a great savings and we started a new business so  I thought I would pay the $33 shipping on a lot of business cards. I checked out and approved a $33 payment for shipping and was excited to finally get my business cards. But… Continue reading

Blog Giveaways…do you always receive the prize?

I am throwing this out there to anyone who has won a blog giveaway and has had trouble or has never seen their product? I know that I have sponsored a couple giveaways and one time my shipping company did not ship it and as soon as I found out I reshipped. I get that happens sometimes. But what I want to collect is information on anyone that has not received or had to beg to receiver their prize. Here is why
