Adobe Photoshop! @AdobeElements @BestBuy #BestLifeEver #PSE #ad

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free
I suck as a photographer. Frequently, when I try to take a picture of my son, it comes out blurry. Because of this, I tend to take lots of pictures, with the hope that one of them will come out good. I'll usually get at least one out of the set, but typically not the best shot as that ends up blurry. When offered the chance to try out Adobe PhotoShop Elements 14, I couldn't pass up on the opportunity as that product takes the casual/beginning photographer and offers the user the ability to remove camera shake from selfies and clear the haze from landscape shots with the touch of a button, among many other features. Something I can greatly use the help with. There saying of Capture the moment now. Perfect the photo or video later. It’s easy with Elements. is perfect for me.

Fueling Halloween with Hot Pockets Snack Bites

Are you a fan of Hot Pockets? As a quick bite before taking the kids out for a fun Halloween night, you can serve their latest product introduction: Hot Pockets Snack Bites. Okay, they were announced back in May, but I'm just now seeing them available in more stores. Apparently, first available in Walmart, they just weren't available in my primary Walmart. You can also find them at Market Basket, among several other stores. Be sure to check out their product finder before heading out to grab. I made the mistake of trying different stores without using the product finder, and never found it on my own.

The Hot Pockets Snack Bites are available in four different flavors:
  • Pepperoni Pizza
  • Four Cheese Pizza
  • Hickory Ham & Cheddar
  • Cheesy Beef Nacho

8 Multiplication Resources

If you are an educator or parent with a frustrated child who is attempting to memorize the multiplication tables? Read on. My eight-year old could certainly use the help. I'm tired of him drawing all the little squares and counting.
Times Tables Resources
Hundreds of kids have learned their times tables in an hour using a very fun & easy to understand animated video. The Times Tales DVD is a two-part video series that uses stories to teach multiplication to kids. The videos use cute, simple stories that provide students with a "memory peg," allowing them to quickly recall otherwise abstract multiplication facts. As students progress through the video, they'll learn multiplication without even knowing it! It's that easy!

Tani USA Thermal Underwear Review

So, I get an email from the PR folks at Tani USA asking if I'll review their underwear. I passed on the opportunity as there is no way I'm posting a picture of myself in briefs. However, after some discussion, they offer a pair of thermal underwear for me to review. Me being in Boston and having just lived through their snowiest season ever, I accept the challenge.

A day after their package arrives, the temperature hits 70° F. The temperatures have since come back in line with the norms, if not being a little colder as nights have been in the 20s lately.

Disney Junior DVDs Giveaway

Welcome Disney fans. Check out our giveaway for some DVDs for juniors. US residents have through 11/4 to enter. Good luck. Would be a great gift for the holidays.

Disney Junior has been releasing some incredible DVD series to inspire younger generation of children to dream and take active steps in building their character through actions. The latest addition to the Disney library collection could be these two DVDs: Doc McStuffins and Sheriff Callie's Wild West.
Bringing You Moments To Celebrate
Sponsored by Disney Organized by Celebrate Woman Today
What is happening in Doc McStuffins: Pet Vet? In this release about pets and docs, Doc McStuffins opens her own veterinary clinic in the back of her yard. To treat her beloved stuffed animals is something she adores to do! This video is so educational and enlightening in a sense of what each one of us can do to our pets while helping them to heal and to mend quickly. It is not only medicine that heals them, rather it is the attitude and compassion each human being can develop to help a pet in need. Sheriff Callie's Wild West: Howdy Partner is all about friendships and relationship they build during different situations. A group of friends with Sheriff Callie at the head learns about fairness and honesty and how it applies to real-life situations. Assisted by her best buddies woodpecker Peck and cactus Toby, Callie leads friends through labyrinth of situations where choices should be made. Your kids would enjoy both of these DVDs a lot! Enter to win them to add to your Holiday Stocking Stuffers!
Prize – Doc McStuffins: Pet Vet + Sheriff Callie's Wild West

Hurricane Professional Spin Mop w. Dolly System
  1 - Winner
  Holiday Contest and Sweeps is pleased to team up with Viatek Consumer Products to bring you the "Hurricane Professional Spin Mop with Dolly System" Giveaway for one lucky reader to win.
  The Professional System Hurricane Spin Mop, built to handle large office spaces, schools, restaurants, retail stores, hotels, and more.

To use the Hurricane Spin Mop Professional System, first submerge the mop in the bucket. Next, place the mop into the basket and pump the handle to spin the mop at over 1000 rotations per minute. Centrifugal force removes moisture, dirt and debris, cleaning the head and allowing you to control the level of moisture in the mop. Then simply lock the handle and begin mopping. The machine-washable Hurricane Spin Mop head has thousands of microfiber strands that trap dirt, grime, and liquids without drips or leaks. It is also effective as a dry mop, attracting dust, hair, and other debris.
