Vote for Mommy Mandy!

Okay, this is a plea for votes! One blog that I will never stop following, Mommy Mandy, is a finalist to win a brand new Electrolux Washer and Dryer. First of all, I’m jealous. Second of all we need to help her win it!

Please go to:

Leave a comment saying Mommy Mandy must win! Or something nice like that. You will need to register. But do it for a fellow blogger and mom who could really use this. Thanks everyone. That is my “cause” for this week!


MMM – Magellan 4350 GPS Giveaway

There are many different GPS brands to choose from now. My heart, though, will stay with Magellan from here on out. Magellan makes a quality product that I feel beats all of the competition. I was lucky enough to try the Magellan Maestro 4350 GPS.

When I received this navigation device, I immediately plugged it in using the included wall charger and turned it on. After about five minutes of use I had it mastered! The Magellan line does take some getting used to, but only a few minutes and you are good to go (literally!).

The Magellan Maestro series has come out with a really cool One Touch feature.  This feature allows you to program up to nine Points of Interest (POI) into a drop down screen. This allows you to just touch, touch, and the location you are going to is all ready to go.


Some of the key features of this GPS are:

  • Magellan One Touch Feature
  • A large 4.3 inch color touch screen
  • The maps are not only for the US, they are also Canada and Puerto Rico
  • The GPS will notify you which lane you should be in
  • On the side of the navigation system you can plug the GPS into your car adapter and have it play sound through your car radio
  • Built in bluetooth – this is one of my favorite features as a mom – it allows you to answer and make calls through the device!
  • Location for memory card, such as the ones SanDisk makes, that put MP3’s right into the GPS. We were able to play music, get directions and have a great family trip!

Weekend Diversions: Are You A Likaholix? Can you KenKen? Make NetDisasters!

I kind of feel like pulling up the covers and hiding today – but I get the impression that my absence would be noticed, so instead I’m going to share with you some of my current favorite distractions – sure to brighten up your weekend or at least provide you with new things to attempt to call “work” when your kid asks what you’re doing – will they be fooled? Or will they beg to “work” with you?

Have you heard of Likaholix? It’s basically a website devoted to stuff you like – search for products, places, blogs & websites – and tell people why you like them – it can connect to Facebook for easy connection to all your other diversions (and friends). The more people you connect to on Likaholix the funner it is. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself. (Let me know if that invite link doesn’t work for you – and I’ll see what I can do ::winks::)

Speaking of nothing related to that, can you KenKen? Do you know what a KenKen is? Apparently it’s the new big in math puzzles, similar to Sudoku but like on crack. Jen @ Stuff Jen Says wrote a post about it recently and I’m all sorts of intrigued and petrified by this new craze.

According to Wikipedia, KenKen “is a style of arithmetic and logical puzzle sharing several characteristics with sudoku. The name comes from Japanese and is translated as “the square of wisdom” or “cleverness squared.”

“The objective is to fill the grid in with the digits 1 through 6 such that:

  • Each row contains exactly one of each digit
  • Each column contains exactly one of each digit
  • Each bold-outlined group of cells is a cage containing digits which achieve the specified result using the specified mathematical operation: addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (×), and division (÷). (Unlike in Killer Sudoku, digits may repeat within a group.)”

Think you can KenKen? Try it out online here, here or here.

Okay, last diversion, and I promise this one doesn’t involve nearly as much thinking – no, this diversion focuses more on destruction – mayhem – breaking things – but without the messy clean up. Go to NetDisaster, type in the web address of your favorite website, choose your poison and then watch the magic happen. It’s severely addicting and easy. I spent far too much time than was probably necessary flooding my blog & making protesters picket up and down it (but not at the same time, which could have been awesome… hmmm….)

That’s all for this week – have a great, diverted weekend guys!
