Winner of the Italian Days Publix Gift Card.

Sorry to be posting this a day later then I had hoped to, but I took our daughter to Cape Canaveral to see the launch. I lost count of how many shuttle launches I have seen over the years, but this was her first one that was up close and personal at the Cape. We usually watch the launch from our backyard.

I want to congratulate Shirley Walker, who typed “I like Progresso Soups” on 2/21, for winning our Italian Days at Publix $25.00 Gift Card giveaway. MyBlogSpark will be sending her the gift card which was provided by General Mills.

FREE LEGO Police Boat W/$35.00 Purchase at

LEGO Brand Retail

Our family pretty much keeps LEGO in the black bricks,
so I am being honest when I tell you the above deal is a
good one.

Even if you already have the Police Boat in your
house, if you take advantage of this deal, you now will have
a very inexpensive gift for a neighbor child on their birthday
or during the holidays.

The above banner pretty much says it all.

Spend $35.00 at and get a FREE LEGO City Police Boat.

Travel Alaska
I know, some of you are asking, “Mark, seriously, Alaska?” My reply is that because this is one of the states that I have wanted to visit for such a long time, that maybe, just maybe, you my faithful readers would be interested in traveling there also. The form to fill out is one page, and pretty much basic mailing info. So click on either the banner above, or HERE, and sign up.
