Saving energy while cleaning

How are you conserving energy these days? Are you unplugging all the appliances and only using in extreme emergencies? Well, if you are like most MOMS I know then you have kids running in and out of the door with either dirt or something on their shoes. A MOM CAN NOT CONSERVE much energy with this going on. We must use the vaccum and we probably have to use it a couple times per day, right? Well, I have something for you to try. It's the new Dirt Devil AccuCharge hand held vaccum that uses A LOT less energy. A hand vaccum that uses 70% less energy? Are you serious? Why, YES I am very serious! Dirt Devil's newest hand held vaccum is the first of it's kind to earn the Energy Star approval. This new vaccum is amazing! It uses less energy and still performs right at the top like all Dirt Devil vaccums. The AccuCharge Stick Vac and Hand Vac are also cordless so that means you can quit worrying about how long the cord will reach. With rising costs on just about everything at least you can rest knowing that something (The Dirt Devil AccuCharge) is saving energy which means saving MONEY for you! Aren't you ready to give it a try? I am!!

How does he do it?

I love watching Criss Angel and I try to never miss a show that he is on. Are you often asking yourself...."How on EARTH does he do that?" I just sit there in awe half the time.
We have been watching magic tricks for a long time now and nothing compares to Criss Angel in my opinion. Sure Houdini and Copperfield were great but no one blows my mind quiet like Criss. He is a master in today's world. You can catch Criss Angel and all the great mysteries surrounding him at the Luxor hotel in Las Vegas where he is now performing. I would love to see him perform live! He also has a new performance in Circe De Soleil called CRISS ANGEL Believe and it should also be a KNOCK-OUT!
How would you like to visit these shows? Well, you now have a chance to win 2 tickets! All you have to do is text 22122 and you could just be sitting in the audience when Criss Angel performs. How cool is that??? Enter the text message contest as soon as possible and be sure to tell all your friends to enter as well.
I am off to enter!

Sites and Sounds

Do you like to listen to music while you blog? I do! I often crank up the tunes on my ipod however I can't do this when my little ones are around because of the ear phones. You see, my kids often get into TROUBLE and I would like to have all ears on them. BUT WAIT, now there is a blog where you can read cool articles and listen to F-R-E-E music!! The Blog is Sites and Sounds and they have a pretty nice selection of articles about various music groups. It's pretty interesting to learn about new artists and get a little sampling of their sounds. I just read a piece about a band named Megaphone. They are from Orlando, FL (Not too far from me) and I totally dig their style. I will be on the look-out for this group for sure.
Discover New and Free music at Sites and Sounds and put away those ear phones!

Struggling with your weight?

Do you struggle with your weight? Have you tried every diet in the book and nothing seems to work just right? You should look into the lap band surgery. It is adjustable and completely reversable. It is an IN and OUT procedure. You have the surgery and then within hours you will be able to go home. *Nothing major* It works fairly simple, a band is securely placed around the upper portion of the stomach, creating a small pouch and a narrow passage into the larger stomach. This could just be the answer you have searching for regarding weight loss.

What's your manga name? I do believe that if I had to choose my own I would probably choose YUMI. I just like how it rolls of my tongue. I am not real sure what it means but it sure sounds cool. If you are looking for a great anime be sure to check out Bleach the Movie. It will hit select theaters on June 11th. Check your local theater for ticket information.

Well, many of you may have noticed the lack of posts already. I just wanted to pop in and let everyone else know that we are taking a little vacation right now. There will be posts but not as often as we usually post them.
Hopefully we can soak up the sun and enjoy a few bubbly drinks!
Have a great weekend everyone.
