Bluetooth Headset … Perfect!

Had the ultimate compliment on my Plantronics Bluetooth Headset today :  [in a whisper] ‘it looks like a piece of jewelry!’.  Well, I wouldn’t go that far but in white, it really does sit close to the ear and doesn’t have that annoying blinky light so many others do.  Not only that, it comes with both the ear lobe circle and a hook and 3 size tips plus recharges with a mini usb cord.

This puppy is so great, I can listen to music on my smartphone or podcasts and still answer/take phone calls without missing a beat + I hear little beeps when I have text notifications. It’s the cat’s meow!!

Mine is the M155 and the M165 is a newer version. I’ve never used the M165 so I don’t know anything about it — although I’m rarely disappointed with Plantronics.  [If any of you have the M165, won’t you please share your feedback on it? Thanks so much!]

Yummy fish oil … not an oxymoron!

I love, Love, LOVE coromega’s orange gel paks [taste like an old fashioned orange dreamsicle] providing high quality Omega 3s and my favorite one also adds Vitamin D3 … adds a pineapple twist.  Yummy!  Everyone knows that Omega 3 and Vitamin D3 deficiencies are taking their toll on our health.  My VeMMA premium liquid nutritional supplement is my plant-based ionic daily so all I add is my daily coromega to cover my oil-based nutrient needs. That’s how we roll in Little Mama’s house!

Humidity can be an all-year need

It took me years to realize that every time we turned on the furnace in the fall, I got a migraine headache the following morning.  I have a sensitivity to dry air and chemicals.  Then one year we didn’t put the humidifier in our bedroom away, we left it running and son-of-a-gun if that puppy didn’t keep pumping out vapor.  Now you do have to be vigilant to keep your filters replaced and we also put a cap full of chlorox in the tank every time we refill [learned that the hard way that mold can build up on the filter and that really causes congestion and mystery].  So here is my favorite bedroom humidifier [and you may need more for children’s bedrooms] :

Enjoy feeling better!

Stay Powered Up!

I am really excited about my new solar power charger!  I have a couple of other portable ‘power cubes, etc.’ but forget to charge them; plus they seems to discharge quickly even when idle.  Soooooo, this unit has a clip for you to put on your luggage, purse, or briefcase and sunlight recharges it!  I also enjoy the 4 tips I received : ipad, mini usb, eensy round one perfect for my BT earbuds and one maxi USB that I doubt I’ll ever use.   But, hey, 3 out of 4 is great and that little one for my earbuds is hard to find!  And did I say it’s only $29.99 right now at Amazon???  Enjoy!!!

Ipad / Smartphone Stand

My d-i-l had one of these for my grandson’s mini-ipad, and I was so impressed I ordered 2 for myself. Great balance, sturdy construction, wide enough ‘lip’ that most phones and ipads with covers fit easily, small compact for travel; all around a great product that I gladly recommend and will probably buy more of as gifts. Prompt delivery.

We’re about to embark on our OOMA home phone journey … it’s a little scary considering I have had Ma Bell for over 60 years.   Had this new fangled VoiP phone service recommended to by a friend who loves it.  And she only lives about 1 mile from my house — I’m quite the skeptic when it comes to phone and internet service!  After all of my research, I’ve purchased the OOMA Telo unit from Amazon and will keep you posted on how it works with my newly installed nulink digital cable internet service.   If I can save $50 / month on my Ma Bell home phone, then this unit will pay for itself in 3-4 months and then my cup runneth over!! Buckle up!

Bluetooth Portable Keyboard

If you really want to take some speed notes, text and email, capture your ideas while they’re hot and have trouble typing on the ipad keyboard [I’m talking to us oldie-but-goodie, speed typers who can’t look at a keyboard and type a darn thing!], I found this bluetooth portable keyboard that I just love!  Runs on 4 AAA batteries [so always carry some charged up spares for those long meetings], drop it in my bag, b/t connect, and type away.  This little puppy works on my iPad, and Samsung Galaxy III android and Blackberry so I’m ready to rock!

Lady Boss ~ Getting Started Tip 1

If you’re serious about starting your own home-base business, yet ‘Sales’ is not your forte, consider that there are some companies who thrive on doing the sales part for you. And I don’t mean ‘strong-armed selling’ or ‘pushy salespeople’ stuff. But finding a team leader who is a match for you and your friends, someone who knows the products and services better than you do starting out, who listens to what you need and who makes you and your friends comfortable with the promoting piece.
Make sense?

If you want to see if you and I are a great team match, please contact me.

ipad stand

I have used several cover/stand options for my ipad and they just didn’t suit my needs — so I went with a very basic cover/stand for everyday carry protection and then at my home office, I use this great adjustable stand that I really like [works with my cover plus it folds up, weighs next to nothing, and travels well!] :
