T-Fal Iron Review


My mom loves her new T-Fal Iron.  She’s been using it since it arrived last week.  She said her last iron, the steam was burning her.  With the T-Fal Iron, she hasn’t gotten burnt once.  She is 67 years old, so making her life easy, that’s what we’re about.  With the T-Fal Iron, her life is super simple.

Our clothes look so good when using this Iron.  It takes no time to iron with all those steam holes.

Even my father noticed the difference in the ironing.  He said “absolutely no wrinkles now, cool!”

Thermal Aid Zoo Animals


Thermal Aid®  Zoo and Thermal Aid®  Zoo Minis animals are so cute and huggable, and most importantly they really work.  Even my Sarah, at age 17 still wanted to use the full-sized Koala one, and Jacob, age 3, has the mini ones. 

Whenever they aren’t feeling well, we heat them up for 30 seconds, and give them to whoever is sick, and they fall asleep so quickly.  I am going on a Press Trip in May, and I’ve never been away from Jacob, so my mother in law is going to use his animal (in the microwave for 30 seconds) to help him sleep.


Jacob’s favorite is the Mini Baxter Bunny.  We also keep one in the freezer, in case someone gets a boo boo.
The animals are filled with 100% organic specially milled de-germinated corn segments.  And using Thermal Aid is so easy.  You just heat, or use straight from the freezer, give to your little one, and the rest is all natural.  They know what to do.  Every child gets boo boos, minor fevers, aches and sprains so why not have a couple of these cuties on hand so they have a soothing little buddy to treat their discomfort and parents can avoiding struggling with their kids’ resistance to traditional methods when they need to treat whatever ailment is bothering them?

If you buy one now, you get one free.  That’s an amazing offer.

There are also Thermal Aids for Headaches too. I just tried mine last night.  It worked like a dream.  My headache was so bad that the pain reliever did not take the pain away.  However, 20 minutes of lying down with the Adult Headache Relief Pack on my forehead, and I was feeling much better.


In fact, the product was originally created for adults by inventor and founder of Pacific Shore Holdings, Inc., Matthew Mills. As the Company’s CEO, Mills, who is also the father of two very active sons, had a vision for filling the gap he perceived in the youth hot and cold-based relief market. So he redesigned the adult version of his patented Thermal-Aid Therapy Packs for children by encasing the packs inside the seven kid-friendly animal characters featured here.
Mills believed that kids would naturally gravitate towards the cuddly, cute zoo animals and hug them providing a holistic, therapeutic approach that offers some relief to them and creates a less painful physical environment. AND IT WORKS! You might be wondering what makes this product different than others on the market today.


HERE’S HOW IT WORKS? Thermal-Aid® is made from specially milled de-germinated corn which removes virtually all the moisture, thereby preventing mold and fungus. This process hardens the corn segments, which allows the de-germinated corn segments to hold, even temperatures in both cold via a freezer and heat via a microwave for long periods of time.

Plus, you have to admit that these little guys are pretty adorable.  And since they really work, you need to own a few.  The price is right; you just pay separate shipping on the second one.

Coming from little Jacob’s mouth, “My little guys help me feel better when I have a boo boo.”  Sarah said her koala helps her sleep too.  She heats it for about 30 seconds in the microwave, and sleeps with him for comfort – even teens need a little help sleeping sometimes.
Some other uses for Thermal Aid Zoo products include:

  • Reducing Fever
  • Relieving Pain
  • Sunburn Relief
  • Earaches
  • Flu Symptoms
  • Minor Sporting Injuries like Sprains/Strains
  • Bee Stings/Bug Bites
  • Sore Muscles
  • Growing Pains
  • Insomnia
  • And Much More

With Wednesday being Earth Day, they thought they would do something special and give away Little Bites on our site.  You will get 4 coupons for Little Bites, and a up cycled Tote bag, which is really cute.

So I got to try Little Bites, just this morning.  I had the Chocolate Chip ones, and they were delicious.  Even my 4 year old loves them.

Little Bites have been around for a while, and my husband was excited to be able to take them in his lunch last week, as well as, this week.  I actually found Value Sized Little Bites at Walmart for only $4.98, so I was able to use my coupons on the Value Sized, and got 40 bites per box.  That’s 10 packs of 4.

Master Lock Shares Advice for Senior Safety

masterlock logo

We received a Master Lock key safe, and it is so nice.  My husband takes it to work for his personal belongings.  His cell phone, keys and money fit in it with ease.  He says this is so nice to have.  He really likes the Key Safe.  He puts it in his lunchbox, and it’s nice and safe.  The lock is so easy to open, when you know the combination.  This is really an awesome item to own.

portable safe



  1. Be Alert When Out and About: Property crimes represent the highest share of crimes against those 65 and older – nearly nine out of 10 – according to the National Elder Law Network. Master Lock recommends that seniors be alert and aware of their surroundings when out of the house and to keep valuables protected. For example, always lock cars, even if they’ll only be unattended for a few minutes. Keep packages and valuables out of sight, and always check the area around your car before entering or exiting. When out in public, women should wear their purses close to their body and men should carry their wallet in an inside coat or front pant pocket.


  1. Lock Up Home Safety: Typically a place of comfort and refuge, seniors should never have to worry about safety in their own home. For added protection beyond traditional door and window locks, safeguard sliding glass and patio doors with the added strength of a Master Lock 265DCCSEN Door Security Bar and consider a home alarm system to alert against intruders. Keep doors locked both when you’re home and away, but allow access to a friend or family member in case of emergency by storing a spare key in a trusted key safe, such as the Master Lock 5422D Key Safe.


  1. Secure Personal Items in a Group Home Environment: Misplaced or stolen belongings are a frequent complaint of nursing home residents. Keep valuables safe by storing them in an easy-to-use, locked safe that only you and a trusted companion know the combination to. Small items, such as credit cards, jewelry or cash, fit in the portable Master Lock 5900D SafeSpace, while larger items, like documents or memorabilia, can be stored in a fire-resistant safe from Sentry Safe.


  1. Protect Against Identity Theft: Mature consumers (ages 50 and over) represent the largest demographic of identity theft victims, according to the Federal Trade Commission. Why? Consumers in this age group typically have more assets than younger consumers, making them ideal targets.


Reduce your risk by never carrying your social security card; shredding documents that contain any identifying information; keeping personal information such as bank statements, Medicare statements and social security numbers in a locked safe; and storing credit card numbers in a safe location for easy retrieval if they’re lost or stolen. The Master Lock Vault – a free, digital safe deposit box – is a secure, reliable location for storing credit card numbers and digital copies of important documents for easy access from any smart phone or computer.


  1. Think Twice Before Divulging Personal Information: Seniors are also major targets of fraud, such as telemarketing scams, according to the American Association of Retired Persons. Follow the general rule of thumb that if an offer seems too good to be true, it probably is. Never rush into signing anything, and never give your credit card, Social Security, Medicare or bank account details to anyone over the phone. When in doubt, check with the Better Business Bureau or police.

23 Blast

23 blast

23 Blast was an amazing movie.  My family and I got to sit down and watch over the weekend.  My mother said it was a “great” film.  It’s an aspiring story that my husband and I enjoyed as well.  Even 17 year old, Sarah, sat down to watch it.  And 3 year old, Jacob, watched it as well.  My family doesn’t do a lot together, because of the major age difference in my kids.  This movie brought us all together, and let us see what life was all about.

“As a typical teenager, Travis Freeman is a local hero both on and off the high school football field in his small Kentucky town, but in 1997, Travis contracts an infection that destroys his optic nerve and renders him blind overnight.  With the lving help and concern of his parents, physical therapist, coach and best friend, Travis demonstrates what true bravery is:  He continues to compete on the gridiron and helps his team advance to the state finals.”

This really is a sensational movie, that shows we can do anything we want to do.  Make sure you get your copy today.
