Rubik's Cube 360

Welcome back Mr. Rubik!!! The idea with this new twist on the original cube is to get the colored balls from the inner sphere into the matching slots on the outer sphere by twisting and shaking them through holes. Available at for $15.

Spa Pampering: Head & Toes

Two favorite... at home spa pampering treatments...


Head: Mix 1 teaspoon sea salt into an ounce of shampoo. Gently massage the mixture into your scalp for a few minutes, then rinse and condition as usual.

Toes: Fill a basin with warm water and add a squirt of body wash or a tablespoon of bath salts. Soak feet for 10 minutes, then gently pumice, pat dry with a soft towel, and rub in a rich lotion.

Cool Cones by Jokari

The fun way to eat and store ice cream without making a mess!!

Use Cool Cones to scoop up ice cream and then push up on the handle to eat. Convenient attached lid can be used to store ice cream right in the Cool Cone.

Can be purchased at for $6.99 for a set of four. I've read that they are also available at some grocery stores.

More Horrible License Plates

My teenage son and I were driving home from a girls softball game last season, and he saw a car that impressed him. He wanted me drive closer so he could get a better look.

I noticed a HILARIOUS license plate.

So I drive VERY fast (not as fast as the corvette, because I was in a Honda...) but fast enough that when the corvette braked to make a right turn, I almost 'owned' a piece of that pretty cool car.

But, I got the picture.

And, it was posted on the Horrible License Plates blog this morning.

Photo credit was given to Katie O. Not sure who she is... but maybe it's an inside joke. Like maybe she's the sister-in-law of the HLP writer, who gets just a little too mean every four weeks or so! Wouldn't that be funny if it was the new mother-in-law of the writer???

If you don't check the HLP blog every day... you MUST. It is always good for a laugh!!

Zazzle - Mugs

At Zazzle you can 'create' all sorts of things! T-shirts, bags, mugs...

You can add text, pictures, graphics...
I like the idea of using the mugs as gift holders. They would be perfect to hold treats, flowers, gift certificates, etc. It's all about presentation.
Each personalized mug is $13.
