Enjoy New Crispy Crust Tony's Pizza

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Tony's Pizza. All opinions are 100% mine.

Through the years, we have bought many types of frozen pizzas with many different toppings. We have been sadly disappointed so many times because the crust tasted and looked like cardboard. So many seemed to lack a really good flavor and the only reason we kept buying them was because they were quick and easy to prepare when we were in a hurry to have something to be eat on our way to school activities or something like that. However, we purchased some Tony's Pizza with the new crispy crust and what a happy surprise! Not only did they have lots of topping, but good cheese and sauce and the best crispy crust we have ever had. They are just the right size for a quick snack or lunch and they fill the need for a tasty dinner for the whole family. In addition, when we get together for a ballgame or game of cards, out will come Tony's crispy crust pizza for all to enjoy. I shared the pizzas with my brother and son and they were in complete agreement with me that they were the best crispy crust pizzas they have enjoyed for a very long time. Their families love them. They come in many flavors. We enjoy them all and my son says his favorite is the pepperoni. All the younger kids seem to go for the cheese pizzas and Tony's have those too. If you haven't tried them yet, don't hesitate. They are a neat shape too, round with corners. It makes them so easy to cut up and eat. I like the size because you can afford to have lots more different topping pizzas at the same time without breaking the bank, so to speak.

Fun at Church

Today was Vision Sunday at church today and they went over what we have done in the past and what we plan for this year. They set up the church in tables with coffee and donuts and hardhats. It was a lot of fun. The pastor had a great message excentuated by skits telling about each part of his teaching. It was very different and a great deal of fun. We really enjoy our church experience every Sunday though, not just on special events.

Great Deals on Eyeglasses

I have been having a bit of trouble with my reading lately. It seemed like I had to blink a lot in order to read the print better. It was about time for my annual eye checkup so when I went the doctor told me I would need cataract surgery to correct my problem. After the surgery was completed and I had my checkup he told me I would need to have new eye wear. There is an optical company attached to the doctors offices, so I took my prescription over to them and asked them what it would cost to get new lenses and frames. I was shocked at what she told me and I knew right then that I could not afford their lenses and eyeglass frames. My budget just would not handle it as I am retired and live on a limited income. I knew that the best thing I could do was to go home and get on the computer and check out the Internet for eyeglasses. I needed to find some that I could afford and that was all there was to it. I had to have the glasses. There was no doubt about that but I just could not afford the optical company's glasses. I found on the Internet that I could get the bifocals I need for as little as $25 and my husband has the photochromic and I had been considering getting those too. Happily, I found that I could get those for just a few dollars more. I am so happy with my new glasses.

Global Warming

Are you keeping up on all the news about Global Warming? It seems there has been a lot of lying about it. The scientists are now coming forth with information that they lied about facts that would prove global warming. In reality, the earth is actually cooling and this winter is sure proof of that. All over the world, they have had snow in places they have never had snow before. It would appear that the earth has gone through many cooling and warming phases over the centuries and it is now coming to light. In my opinion, they should take back the Nobel Prize that was given on this subject as it is being completely proven wrong.

Pets and Health Problems

Our little Boston Terrier, Holly, started scratching at her face and ears. She scratched so much her eye was swollen and her face was bloody on one side. We couldn't figure out what was wrong. In checking into it, we found that she had become allergic to her dog food. We changed dog food to a very healthy brand about 2years ago so we were surprised to learn she had become allergic to it. We changed back to a brand she had eaten for many years and her itching stopped and her face cleared up. She had to wear one of those collars for several weeks so she couldn't reach her face until the new dog good got through her system and she quit itching. She is a happy little dog again and happy to be rid of that collar.

Article Alley

I love to read and I also love to post on my blog. Sometimes your mind just goes blank and you can't think of a thing to write. I love to go through magazines and newspapers and see what interesting articles I can write about. What I need to find on the Internet besides news articles, is a place where many articles are gathered together, perhaps something like an Article Alley where there are many articles and many subjects. Then I could just pick my subject, read up on them and write good posts for everyones information, as well as mine.
Health is a huge subject for almost everyone day. Everyone wants to gain or lose weight and find out what are the best ways to go about it. I search the Internet regularly for information on diet drugs and which are the best ones to work for you. I also have researched exercise machines and found the one that suits me best. Another big interest of everyone is aging. No one wants to age, especially prematurely so if they are like me, they are searching for products to reduce wrinkles, bags under your eyes and make you look younger. I need to research many articles to find many more up-to-date articles on today's interests of everyone so they will check my blog to see what the latest trend is. I do want to keep up with the latest news, as well, so I will keep up with my search of interesting articles.

The Snow is Melting!

Hurray! The snow is melting a little. There is actually slush on the roads and the roads are wet and may dry off by tonight. But the off roads look pretty bad yet. The landlord got out his backhoe yesterday and worked very hard to take some of the HUGE snow piles across the road and into a corn field that is there. We have just had so much snow that there is no where to put it. It has been lifted and pushed as high as the machinery will go. We had another 1/2" last night and they say another big snowstorm is headed right at us starting tomorrow and Monday. I think we have had a Monday snow or snowstorm or blizzard every Monday for a month or more.snow

Dining Room Tables

I believe for most people, their home is their castle. It is the place where they can relax and be themselves. Therefore, they do everything they can to make their home as comfortable as possible. However, they also want to be able to invite people over and have a home that is attractive to them too. When it comes to Dining Room Tables it is important to choose just the right one that fits into your home's decor.
Our table has been in the family for a long time and has gone through many children and grandchildren. I think it is time for us to replace it with something stylish and up-to-date. I have been checking out the Internet to see what is available and I am quite surprised at how the styles have changed. Indeed, there are so many different types, shapes, wood and glass tables available now that it is going to be hard to choose. But I want one that will fit into our dining room best, as well. I have been to homes that had very uncomfortable tables and chairs so I want to make sure to choose one that we will enjoy. A glass table top is quite different and unique and definitely beautiful to see. I found some extendable tables that would be great for extra company and would not take up that much room all the time.


We had the opportunity last Saturday to travel a couple of hours one way to see our grandsons. One has bought a new condo and it is just beautiful the way he has it decorated. He has a beautiful red kitchen with a hanging silver light over the table that is just outstanding. We had a wonderful lunch with another grandson and his wife and their 2 little boys, our great grandsons. It was so much fun and hard to believe a week has passed so quickly since we were there.

Construction Business Cards

One of the easiest ways to get the word out about your business is through business cards. There is a great deal of home improvement going on these days. People are unable to sell their homes as fast as they would like so they build on or make home improvements. I notice everywhere we go to find the materials for our home improvements that they give out construction business cards. I think it is a very good idea because sometimes you get home and you cannot remember where you saw a particular item that you want in your home. All businesses need a good business card with their name, address and phone number on it. Often you can shop at those very same stores using the Internet. This can save you a great deal of time, money and even gas running from store to store. All construction businesses would do well to have a good business card available at all times to pass out to prospective customers.

I know most of our children have done some kind of home improvement to their homes, either building on a family room or adding a deck. Some have re-sided their homes and I know they all shopped around for the best deals. But like I said, so often you go to so many places, you can't remember where you found the best deals. It is easy to write it on the back of their business card and when you get home you are all set. You can sit down and plan out what you want to do and then plan where to buy what you need for your projects.

Family Trip

We went on a family trip this weekend. We went with our children to see our grandchildren living about 2 hours away. We had a really good time and were able to visit one grandson's new condo. It is beautiful. Had a ride in his beautiful red BMW also on the way to a great restaurant. We met another grandson, wife and two great grandchildren there for lunch. Then we went to visit their home and his office. It was a great day and we sure had a lot of fun with you little 2 year old great grandson.

Buy Gold Bullion

Now is the time to buy gold bullion. It is a very safe investment. Overseas investing is quite common and buying gold in Thailand is possible. The Stock Exchange of Thailand is very cooperative in helping investors. Several rules have come forth regarding gold purchases. It is a very good idea in order to regulate the purity standards. I know I would want to be sure I was investing in the purest of gold, wouldn't you? The Capital Market Supervisory Board has agreed to two types of overseas gold exchange traded funds. This is something that is quite important to everyone looking to invest in Thailand.

Grocery Shopping

I decided today that I better get to the store and get some groceries. We are expecting more snow again this weekend and probably next week too. I don't like to get too low on groceries. We always have a need for milk, bread and butter but sometimes, it is time to fill up the freezer with some meats. The snow has been especially bad this year so it pays to be prepared for anything.

Vitamins and Minerals

Ae you getting all the vitamins and minerals that you need for good health? We all think that we get all we need through our food. However, how many times have you just grabbed a burger instead of a healthy meal? We have all done it. Vitamins and minerals are very important as well as calcium for your bones. But you need to be sure you take Vitamin D to get the most out of your calcium.

Family Vacation

This winter has gotten very long. We have more snow than we have had in many years. They do not know where to pile it anymore. Yet, they say we could have another 40 inches before Spring. What we need is a family vacation. We need to go somewhere warm and lie on white sandy beaches. I know that there are hotels on the Riviera Maya calling to me. They have all the facilities to make an entire family have a delightful time. Not only do they have all the amenities adults expect but they have entertainment for the children. What more could you ask for? I have got to get planning now.

40 More Inches of Snow Before Spring???

We have been hearing that we are going to have 40 more inches of snow before Spring. That is nuts! I sure hope not. Only the city has a big field to put the town snow. Everyone else is knocking themselves out trying to push it back further and higher. Corners are dangerous almost everywhere because you don't know if there are any more cars coming your way. I really feel sorry for everyone driving to work in this stuff. Freezing drizzle tonight and then turning to snow. YUCK!

Here Comes The Storm

Here we go again. It is starting now to freezing drizzle out. They promised us that first and then snow and they never miss the bad stuff. That is always what my husband says and he seems to be right every time. It is going to change over to snow and the last I heard we will get 2 - 4 inches of the white stuff again. We don't know what to do with all the snow we have now. There is sure to be a lot of flooding next Spring when this all melts.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of VitaDigest. All opinions are 100% mine.

At our age, my husband and I realize that we may not eat quite enough of the right things or quantity of food to get all the vitamins and supplements we need for good health. It is more important for almost everyone to make sure they get enough vitamins so that their body will keep replacing dying cells with new cells, promoting long and lasting health. Because I have fought anemia, I take Vitamin B complex with liver and iron along with a complete vitamin for seniors. My husband also takes these vitamins, and we both take calcium and vitamin D. Vitamin C is also very important.
I feel it is a good idea to keep checking the Internet along with local stores for the best vitamins and supplements available as I know they keep improving them. I discovered VitaDigest in my searches on the computer. I am very interested in Alive! Whole Food Energizer Multi-Vitamin Vegetarian Capsules as we never seem to get enough vegetables and their Bone Up for bone density and colon health serve a very important purpose in our lives. We all need strong bones.
I was surprised to learn that they carry over 13,000 vitamins and products of all kinds. They even won an award in 2009 as Top 5000 Fastest growing company That is quite an achievement. Right now you can get in on a great special deal. You cannot only receive a 10% off coupon but also receive Free Shipping on your order over $100. All you have to do to receive the coupon is mention the coupon code "izb10jan" and it will be good until the end of February. It doesn't get much better than that.

Doctor Appointment

I had an eye doctor appointment today. It was a follow up on the cataract surgery I had yesterday. My eye is doing fine. It is still a little foggy but he said it would clear up in 2 or 3 days. I am starting to see more all the time. Colors are beautiful. Can see everything in color, just can't read anything yet. Will be really nice when it clears up.

I went to the store this morning to get some Club Crackers. Sometimes you just want something salty and not always chips or something like that. I was surprised to see all the new kinds of crackers on the shelves. I got a box of Town House Flipside Pretzel Crackers and they sure look good. I hope they are as good as they look on the package. I got the garlic flavored ones for something different.
