Kingston Derby Girls Event AUG 18th at the Memorial Centre

Hello Kingston and area,
  I'm posting this because I thought maybe some of you might be interested in seeing this exciting event.  
  I am going to be taking my four children and husband to this event tomorrow night.  A friend of ours skates in this and she has a blast.  So we thought it would be fun to go out and support her and watch all the fun. 
  I just thought I would help to spread the word about this event because I don't think a lot of people know this happens in our little city, maybe you all do, until my friend started doing this I had no idea it happened here.
  Well, I have to get going but I hope you can all go to this.  To buy tickets follow this link.  
 If you would like more information on the Kingston Derby Girls head over to their website.

Have a great day everyone.  And good luck to all the skaters tomorrow, I can't wait to watch, I'm super excited.

NOT A REVIEW: Fun event to see for those living in Kingston On, Canada

Hey everyone, I'm posting this because I think it would be very exciting to see.  I am going to be going with my family.  A friend of mine skates in this, she has a blast so we thought it would be fun to watch.  I thought I'd spread the word because a lot of people don't know this happens in our little city.

Have a great day everyone.

Petcetera Sizzling Summer savings! Aug 14- 19th

What a great weekend to live in a big city.  The Petcetera that was in my town closed down and I still receive their emails telling what fantastic deals they have going on at the time.  Some times I get the urge to drive the 2 hours (one way) to grab something but then I sit back and think, saving $20 on something isn't really worth the $40 gas I would have to spend to get there.  I mean, if I was smart I would just delete my name off the list but I have a brother who lives in the next major "big" city in the province and I know if I really wanted something he would get it for me and bring it down the next time he visited.

So, I thought I would share this sale with you because it looks fantastic, if you live in the area.  Great cat items and the crates for dogs are only half price.  Seriously, who isn't trying to save money nowadays?

  My children absolutely love this!!  And of course that makes me love it!  My children have always enjoyed brushing their teeth, we have nightly "toothbrush party" parties, and let me tell you, when a 2 year old is telling you to get up to the bathroom for a toothbrush party, you go!  My husband uses Listerine mouthwash, always has always will, my teeth and mouth cannot handle the intensity of the mouthwash so I never did, that of course was until I discovered Listerine Total Care (my review) and now we have this for kids.  My little ones love the flavor it leaves in your mouth, my son is always "here smell this" and a big 'huff' it's super cute.  I am really thrilled that Listerine has given my children a reason to enjoy rinsing their mouths out.  They have always wanted to use daddy's and I always say NO, I know, I'm mean because the bottle says not under 12 and I don't let them, not even my oldest daughter who will be twelve in less than 3 months.  Maybe it's overkill, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.  I have always tried to read things and let the kids do them when the instructions/warnings say it's okay.
  Well, I would like to leave this with one recommendation (or two), if you use mouthwash and your child drives you nuts wanting to use it too and you won't let them, go buy this stuff, it's great, they will get mouthwash and you will rest assured knowing that it's not likely to hurt them.  I would love everyone to try this product with their children, maybe it will take some of the struggle out of teeth brushing, if you have that issue.

I give this product 6 out of 6 thumbs up!

New Kellogg's Special K Chocolate Crisps

Kellogg's says that we've been so good, they have decided to give us a special treat.  Introducing their new Special K® Pastry Crisps: Chocolate flavour Crisps.  Irresistible chocolate flavor inside their light and airy Pastry Crisps they say will delight your taste buds as well as your waistline. 

Two Special K® Pastry Crisps are only 100 calories.  Yep, that's two Crispy bars for 100 calories.  Now you've got permission to lose yourself in chocolately sweetness.

MMM, wow, these taste great.  My children loved them, my husband likes them (he has a sensitivity to sweets and a lot of chocolate is too "rich" for him).  I absolutely loved them, there was just one thing missing.... quantity.  I only gave each of the kids one of the bars out of the pack, it was a before dinner snack just to tide them over.  But I, on the other hand, ate two and I found them lacking in quantity.  They are only 100 calories, luckily not lacking in flavor, but unfortunately they just don't seem to have enough to them to satisfy my hunger I guess.  I felt that I would honestly need to eat a few more to feel satisfied, maybe I was just too hungry.  I have another box to test (different flavor) so I'll do that when I'm not so hungry.  All in all I really did enjoy the product, I just wish it was bigger.  I think the flavor is fantastic, maybe that is my issue, it just tastes too good I need more, either way, if you want a nice light snack I would recommend getting this for yourself, or your kids.

I give this 11 out of 12 thumbs up!

Hello everyone, Hope you are all doing well, as always.  I just wanted to let you know that this is out in iTunes.  I personally do not have it, yet, but it's $3.99 and I will be getting it.  I do however have a couple other products from this developer that my children love so I will be purchasing this and I know it will satisfy my children.  We had issues with one of the apps, it was supposed to read-aloud and only did for the last few pages, not really a bid deal but it is still worth mentioning.  Well, like I said, I just wanted to let everyone with little ones know that this was available.

Get The Gringo

Car chases, bloody bodies and a hard-core prison... all in a day's work. Mel Gibson's vacation plans take a turn for the worse in the raw, explosive and action-packed GET THE GRINGO, arriving on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download July 17 courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Icon Productions.

Gibson stars as Driver, an American criminal who violently crashes his car through the border wall as he tries to outrun the U.S. Border Patrol and coming to a screeching halt in Mexico. A Having survived the crash only to land inside a hard-core Mexican prison, Driver enters the strange and dangerous world of "El Pueblito." A In the middle of this ruthless penal colony, Driver must do whatever it takes to survive, even if he must turn to the unlikely guidance from a 10-year-old kid who shows him the ropes.

   What can I say about Get The Gringo?  Well, I for one have always been a fan of Mel Gibson's work, I find the roles he plays to be very convincing, I think he is a fantastic actor.  And once again, he did not disappoint me.  I liked this movie, despite the fact that it's not really something I would normally watch, and I found it to be like another movie he's done in the past.  There were some parts that I found boring, simply because there wasn't enough going on, I really don't like the 'lull' in movies, you know the in between part where one super awesome thing just happened but the next isn't going to happen for 15 minutes.
   Personally, this wasn't "the best movie ever" for me, but I think there is enough action for the average person, very well played by the actors and well, it's Mel Gibson, he has proven time and time again he can play a wide array of roles, and do so very nicely.  I know my dad would love this movie, it's definitely his kind of action packed, bloody, adventure kind of movie.

  If you like action movies I think you might enjoy watching this movie.  Who knows you may even watch it twice.

I give this movie 1 out of 2 thumbs up!

Alien Spidy coming this fall

Alien Spidy Combines Modern-Day Production Values and Classic Arcade Gaming This Fall

Leicester, UK—August 10, 2012—Kalypso Media today announced it’s bringing charm, humor, and skill back to games with Alien Spidy, a digital action-adventure game starring a swinging alien spider, slated for Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®Network, Mac, and Windows PC slated in North America this fall.

Alien Spidy engages players to step into the web of an intelligent alien spider whose space ship has crash landed on Earth. In order to escape, Spidy must rescue his female companion, Virgi, and collect the lost parts of his craft.  Alien Spidy’s unique web-swinging mechanics and beautifully illustrated environments make the game accessible to gamers of all ages, but it’s the game’s increasingly tough levels that are likely to engage hardcore players.

“We believe Alien Spidy is a gem of a game,” said Jonathan Hales, Managing Director, Kalypso Media Digital Ltd. “With its quirky lead character and broad accessibility, this title is extremely fun to play for any age. As players get deeper into the later levels, however, they’ll find it gets tougher. We really want to challenge the hardcore gamers.”

Spanning more than 60 levels and three distinct landscapes, Alien Spidy takes gamers deep into the treacherous world of insects, zooming down into the cover growth of forests, the tricky Lilli pads of ponds, and the echoing darkness of caves. Each level is crawling with a variety of enemies large and small, landscapes filled with tricks and traps, and surprises to boot.

Alien Spidy will be playable at 2012 Gamescom in Cologne, Germany (August 15-19, 2012), and PAX Prime in Seattle, WA. (August 31-September 2, 2012).
Alien Spidy for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC is not yet rated by the ESRB and is set to arrive in North America this fall.
