For God and Country, a Creations by You Photostory

Creations by You PhotoStory is a digital photo book making product. Its online tools (paintable backgrounds, stickers, even free-hand drawing tools) to help create  the finished literary work.  The budding author gets to supply the words on the pages of this one of a kind hardcover. As a keepsake, I consider it perhaps the best available on the market. Pricing begins at $21.95 and, in my opinion, is worth every penny and more.  Photostory is not just for kids and teens. A while ago I featured it on a Holiday Gift Guide and committed myself towriting “For God and Country”.  It is about my son’s time […]

Disney Vacation Club AKA DVC Works With Me

We traveled along the Pacific Coast Highway, Great Lakes Shores,  St. Lawrence Seaway, Atlantic Coastal US  1A and A1A, the Gulf Coast, Alaska and Hawaii.  Big Sur,  Thousand Islands, Niagara Falls, Wildwood, Florida Keys, Lake Charles, Homer, Diamond Head…its vistas cannot be forgotten. Oh, to be a millionaire!  Fact is I have spent a lifetime dreaming of a home on the water.  Problem is hubby wants rural; me, urban.  Accordingly, the wisdom of Solomon keeps us in suburgatory EXCEPT on vacation.  Thank goodness […]

This review has not been monetarily compensated and is based on the views and opinions of my family and/or self. Please note that the opinions reflected in this post have not been influenced by the sponsor in any way. It is a pity that so many well-advertised coffeehouses are over-rated.  Their pricey brews are most often poorly brewed, stale and burnt, bitter, and certainly not gourmet. No sale, thank you. Joffrey’s spoiled me. Tampa, Florida Joffrey’s is Disney’s official provider. […]
