still haven’t migrated

I know I was going to get my blog migrated to wordpress … but as you can see I haven’t – I’m still over at blogspot. So if you could check me out there I would be most appreciative …

Is it Better to Give than to Receive? Find Out with this Verizon Wireless Raffle.

I really like reading what Marci writes, but when you throw in a giveaway, and that giveaway has some really seriously great products … well lets just say – it is PERFECT

The Midlife Second Wife ™

Tickets in a basketOne of my favorite books when I was just learning to read was Joan Walsh Anglund’s beautifully illustrated Christmas is a Time of Giving. I also loved O. Henry’s short story The Gift of the Magi. I’m sure that the sentiments expressed in those pages set me up for a lifetime of loving to give presents. This holiday season, I’m honored to have a little help from Verizon Wireless as I put on my Santa suit.

My time as a member of the Verizon Boomer Voices program is drawing to a close. To celebrate a collegial and successful partnership, and to thank you for following my adventures in technology, I’m giving you a special holiday present: the chance to win one of three phenomenal mobile devices, courtesy of Verizon Wireless.

Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Boomer Voices program and will be provided with a wireless device and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.

I know I was going to migrate everything over here but well I still haven’t and I keep posting under the link above.

Thanks for understanding – hope you will hop on over there and check me out

Have you seen these candles in action?   I haven’t seen them “up close and personal” YET.   I just ordered a few to “try out” at

If you haven’t already seen them, they are Soy Candles that have a “surprise inside” – sort of like those Cracker Jacks Boxes.   Do you remember asking for those as a kid? Well now you can ask for Diamond Candles just like you did with those Cracker Jacks Boxes as a kid.

They have been super popular.   A few years ago, everyone gave those lottery scratch off tickets (or the pick a number ones) with the hope of giving someone a really big pay day.   Now you can give these candles with the hope of giving an expensive ring along with a really awesome candle.

As their website says, “we have real rings worth $10, $100, $1,000, or $5,000 in every single earth friendly, all natural soy candle that we make.”

Christmas Sample Pack

Now who wouldn’t want to hear that their gift was even bigger than they originally thought?   Could you just imagine giving, or receiving a candle that holds a $5,000 ring inside?   Can you just hear the squeals of delight?  They have some really interesting candle scents that you can use separately or combine to make some personal fragrances.   How about Cinnamon Roll and White Chocolate?  Or Vanilla Cream and Gingerbread Latte?  I can’t wait for mine to arrive.

And I love the story behind Diamond Candles that all began because David wanted to be creative when he gave Brenda an Engagement Ring.  Don’t you just love “creative” people?

As I said, they are super popular right now – they even sold out for a bit. But one of the great things is if something you want is “out of stock” you can request they advise you when it is back in stock. They will send you an email when it is available again. That’s what I did and as soon as I got my email, I jumped on over to their site and placed my order.

They have Sample Packs as well as Individual Candles.  And some great sounding scents that fit all occasions and seasons.  They will eventually be coming to a shop near you, but until then, you can order your candle at

Did I say, I can’t wait to see and smell these very interesting candles?

About Shopped out, Tired and No not done

Have you finished your Holiday Shopping?

I still have things to get but this pretty well says it all for me ….

Every year I think I’m going to be done by Thanksgiving and every year we roll into the middle of December and I’m still looking for things, waiting for things, hoping things arrive, or still debating what to get.

It really is maddening.

Some days I just feel like this by the time I get to sit down and have something to eat.

And they say that THIS is fun

Christmas Shopping ...... maybe I can admit defeat and just sleep

And on top of all this …. I’m trying to set up my blog here on WordPress. Yes I really must be a glutton for punishment.
