  • Yo Gabba Gabba In A City Near You!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Sharon! So I really disliked You Gabba Gabba at first. I mean seriously try describing them to someone else. Freaky right?

    Tweet Contest Closed! Congratulations Carol Y. So you know I got the new iPhone and until then text messages were just messages (and actually whined about receiving since my payment plan charged an arm and a leg for each one) I received and barely sent out.

  • Win The iGo Anywhere Charger!

  • The Touchscreen Handheld From VTech – MobiGo (Giveaway)
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED!! Congratulations Christi! I had not been a huge VTech fan. I mean I liked it ok but there was stuff about the design that never made it my favorite brand.

  • Cisco Launches “What if your tv could talk?” Contest!
    Tweet Cisco  has a new “What If Your TV Could…?” contest. Being an software engineer for 12 years and having a husband who has worked in the same field meant that Cisco as a company has come across our paths once too often.  It is certainly one of those companies that you totally respect.  I normally never post about company contests (I figure that is what advertising...

  • Win Senseo Single-Serve Gourmet Coffee Machine!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Lynn! So we got the Senseo. We are somewhat decent coffee drinkers, more of tea drinkers. So when we occasionally want a good cuppa we sometimes reach for the (sigh) instant coffee. Yes, we have a filter machine (albeit not a good one) but since we don’t drink a lot we don’t believe it is worth the effort for just one...

  • African Dwarf Frog Eco-Aquarium From Wild Creations! (Giveaway)
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED!! Congratulations Laura There’s nothing like learning about nature than to see it in front of you. Problem with most “pets” is that the bulk of the feeding and cleaning falls on the shoulders of parents. Shoulders, I might add, that are so overloaded with responsibility that parents opt not to get a pet as they feel it too much....

  • Snow White Hits Wilbur Theater In Boston! (Giveaway)
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Anandhi! No one needs to tell you the story of Snow White, right.

    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Jennifer! I review many products, some I like, some I don’t, and some are in-between. There are few that I can safely declare that I use in my home. Barilla pasta is one of them.  Don’t call me a food snob, I have dabbled in other (cheaper) brands but have decided to sticky with Barilla as most of them lack firmness...

  • Win The Sothys Face Care with Helianthus and Rosemary Comfort Mask!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Shellie. I don’t spend much (read any) money on makeup but skincare on the other hand is another matter. Of course recent economy stabilities have had an impact on my spending so I have had to make do with less than flattering results. Here is my theory – this is the one skin that we have. How we take care of it...
