Hopeless Parents

This guest post from Lenny Mcknight

I love my parents. They are wonderful people and I am lucky to have them as parents. However, when it comes to anything regarding modern technology, they are hopeless. My mother called me once to tell me the computer was broken. She proceeded to tell me the screen was black and none of the buttons were working. When I asked if she had turned it on, her response was “you have to turn it on”. This at least gives you an idea of how clueless they are. Well, last week their satellite went out or so they thought. Now, I am not an expert satellite technician, but by listening to my mom describe the problem it was a simple fix. She told me the lights on the box were not working and the power button was not either. To be honest, I was impressed that she tried the power button. I asked her if it was plugged in and she told me yes immediately. When I finally talked her into checking, the problem was fixed. Apparently she unplugged it to vacuum and never plugged it back. Sometimes I wonder if she will ever learn and accept technology.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
