New chocolate treat!

We were shopping the other day and since we are both huge Sriracha fans (and my husband is a chocoholic) how could we pass this up?

His verdict: Good quality chocolate, with a 20% heat factor that lingered after eating, not unpleasantly so!

A fun out of the ordinary treat for your family!

It’s Tuesday, December 1st:

National Eat a Red Apple Day!

Red Apples

Not sure who designates these days, but it’s pretty fun stuff!

So I was curious about the old adage: “An apple a day keeps the Doctor away.” So I did a little research which led me nowhere; the majority of sources cannot confirm the accuracy of this statement. Oh well, it rhymes!

Benefits we can list:


  • Low in calories
  • High in Fiber & Water
  • A natural toothbrush
  • Great with Peanut Butter
  • Very portable

Enjoy and munch away—Finch!

Jackson’s Review of StikBot: The Social Media Sharing Toy!

Hi everyone! Jackson here.

I thought it would fit to post a toy review on Black Friday…even though this was written on Wednesday…and I also got him on that day…never mind that, I am here to review Zing’s StikBot, aka the Social Media Sharing Toy!

First off, he has great posing ability, as he can have his (or her) arms, legs and head turned and positioned to your liking!

StikBot comes in many colors, but the one I got was the azure/turquoise blue version.

Of course, StikBot is intended for stop-motion, and works very well for it! In fact, I already made a stop-mo with him and he can be used very well! However, he fell over a lot, but maybe it was just the surface I had him on.

Next up is the fact that his hands and feet are suction cups, meaning many possibilities for places you can put him on in your videos/pictures.

There are pretty much infinite possibilities for this little fella, including that you can get him for a good price. He is only about $5 and some tax at my local Wal-Mart, meaning you can buy several of them for a reasonable price, or get the StikBot Studio ($10), which I will be reviewing in the future.

Size-wise, they are very-well sized for their price, as I just measured him, and he is about 3” tall.

Overall, whoever came up with this idea deserves a big raise, because StikBot is very awesome for private or shared stop-motion videos or even maybe a StikBot Selfie!

Thanks for reading this review, everyone! Happy Black Friday!

God Bless!


Things we love…Red Nose Day!

We decided to do a company fundraiser last week for Red Nose Day; we were able to have 2000 noses donated and sold them to our associates for $1.00 each. Everyone was encouraged to take selfie’s with their noses on and we posted them on our social media site with a shout out to the vendor who donated!

We had a blast doing it and raised over 300.00 (all proceeds direct to charity). Here is one of my photos:

You can still donate!

More about the charity:
“Red Nose Day is a campaign dedicated to raising money for children and young people living in poverty by simply having fun and making people laugh. The inaugural Red Nose Day will be held in the US on May 21st, 2015”.


Things we love…National Sea Monkey Day!


National Sea Monkey Day is celebrated each year on May 16.  I think my sister had them and I remember countless ads on the back of comic books for them (imagine having to order by mail)!

Sea Monkeys are a type of  ”Artemia” (brine shrimp).  They got their name because of their monkey-tail like look.

trivia: Harold von Braunhut invented the “Sea Monkeys” and hatching kits in 1957.  He was quoted as saying “I think I bought something like 3.2 million pages of comic book advertising a year. It worked beautifully.

Sea Monkeys were taken into space with astronaut John Glenn on October 29, 1998 aboard Space Shuttle Discovery.  They returned to Earth after spending nine days in space and the eggs hatched eight weeks later, apparently unaffected by their travels.

(RED)-World AIDS Day 2014 Brings New Updates to 10+ Apps

Hi there!
It’s me, Jackson.

The organization (RED) is a special group that fights to stop AIDS in Africa. So now, (RED) has teamed with Apple and many world-famous apps and companies to save lives. And one of the games that recieved a special update was Angry Birds. That’s right, the original Angry Birds, along with many other games like Minion Rush, Clash of Clans and Cut the Rope 2 have received special updates with exclusive (RED) content, and while we’re on the subject of Angry Birds, let’s cover what it went through with the update, shall we?

Angry Birds: What’s New

  • GOLDEN EGG! A special new level has made its way into the already famous game. Press the play button and you should see it near the bottom of the screen. Tap it to unlock the level and go to the Golden Eggs section to play it.
  • NEW POWER-UP! Now, the all-new (RED)’s Mighty Feathers power-up can be purchased for $2.99 for use in any level. Tapping it puts a special slingshot in place of the normal one. The special slingshot can turn any normal Red Bird into the special one that we see in the section “Red’s Mighty Feathers”. Please note that it only puts one special Red Bird into the slingshot. Any other Red Birds that hop into the slingshot will stay normal. Three levels can be played in the shop for free use of it before purchase.

Now, with that said, all of the apps that (RED) has teamed with, including Angry Birds, can be downloaded to save lives. And just like in Angry Birds, some in-app purchases have come to the other apps too (like Minion Rush). In Minion Rush, the Lifeguard minion, Red Token pack and Red Prize Pod have been added.

Please note that these special purchases and app versions are only available until December 7th, 2014, so please download these apps if you want them!

Enjoy, and God Bless! -Jackson
