Super Smile Review

Tasty Brand Organic Snacks

Seriously.. These are the Yummiest I have ever come across as far as fruit snacks... they actually feel a little "juicy to me " when I eat them!

---- Made with Real Fruit Juice

NO high - fructose corn syrup

No - GMO , artificial flavors or preservatives

Gluten-free and Allergen free !

My family just loves these Honestly as stated above these were the most tasty fruit snacks I have ever had.. I usually don't like fruit snacks I think they taste like plastic.. but these taste DELISH!

Definitely a MUST for the kids school lunches and work snacks, for moms to slip in their purses when running around town. The cookies are great too. I thought they tasted like a short bread and since that is one of my fav cookies that definitely gave them a thumbs up!

Would you be so kind as to share this post on your facebook and twitter page and help get the word out about these great snack and about my blog. Our heart is to help families by teaching them great life skills :) 

Backyard Ocean... :)

Hi guys to add to the fun here I wanted to share about Backyard Ocean,  The other day our local radio station was talking about how everyone was getting pools for next year. This is the way to do it.. Order it now right from BackyardOcean.com and wrap it up for Christmas! I was always a little swimmy fish when I was a kid and always had a pool... although I don't have one right now as I recently moved.. this is the way to go! I know for me I am going to put my bid in to my husband to get me a pool for the yard this year from Backyard Ocean! The other thing I love is they have all the accessories too I am a extreme couponer and I like things delivered right to my door each time I jump in the car I figure gas and then the little extra fast food trips, etc.. so I try to keep home to save the money and do mail order as much as possible. Tweet with me at @R47R and tell me about your favorite swimming experiences :)

Luxury! Spoil yourself rotten with this one at a cost around 200.00 but you use such a tiny bit with BIG results that the value is here. Top of the Line skin care. LaPrairie's Cellular Pore Minimizer

Changing times... always changing now...
   So where is Social Media heading... with so many "INFLUENCERS" out there.. the game is now .. who is INFLUENCING the influencers to turn the tide of the masses.. With a free for all to a point online you never know what the next new Big site for socializing will be.. things can change in a day.. and you can do things online now that used to take 20 years in a matter of 6 months.  All said ... Stay true to  yourself.. and remember as long as you do .. your opinion counts! I love google plus, twitter the best.. but Facebook has so many friends on it, plurk is fun.. and I had a lot of fun on topix.com ...etc.. So where is the next big socializing going to be... Facebook...getting stronger.. or will people all pin pictures with comments on Pinterest?

The Landlines are pretty much gone and out, email is losing ground... even grandma is now online due to facebook. ... People don't care about ads anymore .. as most like me, will listen to honest bloggers faster than being sold because a smiley cheeky gorgeous face tells you to buy something . TV and cable are being replaced with Ruku and more and more Youtube shows. etc,,  Yes, our times are changing... the bible talks about in the last days knowledge will be increased, you can go to bed at night and wake up to volumes of change in the morning. God changes not. .. plant your life on the anchor of life.. The Lord Jesus Christ.

  Vintage Review... Mc Millian and Wife!. Here we see the lovely Susan St. James who played Mrs. McMillian. I adored this show the first time and it was fun to watch it the 2nd time on Netflix.com where you can get a free month. Personally I liked the beginning shows of McMillian and wife with her light hearted ways. Later the show was turned into McMillian with Rock Hudson only and Susan St. James and Nancy Walker the maid gone. At that point I switched off the review and figured it was just fazing out and It was a different show to me. The show had some zany scenes such as the time the house was covered by some kind of balloon to exterminate the McMillians. This is a fun little mystery show to enjoy while you are cleaning and folding laundry...(what I do) I am 50 so it was fun to see other vintage actors in the show too... such as David Cassidy's father, Stephanie Powers etc...
 WAX VAC! Here is a wonderful item that was sent to me by WAX VAC to review. Toss out your cotton swabs.. this is the safe way to clean your ears from dirt, particles and wax. 

It gently draws out all the moisture and particles from your ear. It diassembles for easy clean up, comes with a examing light and 8 silcone reusable tips for cleaning your ears. Gentle and effective 
I am excited about this as I have allergies and sometimes I deal with ear aches this will help keep my ears nice and dry. I went swimming on Saturday and still feel the moisture so I am going to just use the wax vac to take out all the extra moisture.

Gold Bond Pepsi Next

Have you tried Pepsi Next ? 

I pride myself as a couponer and the CEO of my household that I ONLY fill my home with precious things and only use the BEST of everything. Well, here goes... I am a straight "NORMAL" cola drinker... the diet stuff just puts that nasty yuck yuck taste in my mouth so I say if I am going to treat myself and drink a soda I want it to be the good stuff... well Pespsi Next is the answer to all of us hardcore non diet drinkers... it cuts back the sugar but still gives a good taste. You will be able to tell that it isn't Pepsi straight up.. but it definitely gives you a run for your money and if you are like me trying to lose some weight this is going to be a life saver. I am so glad that I tried it because otherwise I wouldn't have known. The next time you are in the store grab a bottle and see what you think talk to me on twitter @R47R and tell me your thoughts and if you agree. My taste team has had the same reaction and I will be purchasing some more of this to share with everyone I see to have them sample and share with you all that people are saying about this. Thank you to Pepsi for sending me soda. And so you all know if a company sends me stuff I always give a honest review as I do these for you to help you choose the right products. 

Think Spring!.... I am sharing these great products as part of my Think Spring PR tour.. with Spring here we have our baby chicks, meat birds, green house material to build that this year.. as city (me and country .. my husband ) are one and building the life God gave us to lead together. It's the modern farm.. We have our backyard farm yet we are very internet savy and very involved in social media yadda from my background in business etc... We have been married a little over a year... and what a beautiful life it is living in the country.. so spring is everywhere when you move to the country --.. and your mind is on not just on  flowers but baby animals, planting, preparing for the fall harvest , what you will need to can .. etc.. like most families today we have our extreme couponing and other activities as well... so spring is very busy... Now here is a product that I kind of thought was something my grandmother used.. but hold it right there... I'm sold. My favorite was the Mary Kay lotion and loved the satin hands.. well not anymore. ONE TRY and I was sold.. love the smell... and unlike anything I have used .. from me being in the beauty biz for 20 years this stuff lasts. Put it on and the next day your hands are still looking soft and young, etc.. Hands down this stuff rules. Gold bond also has stuff for the feet.. I was going to give this to my husband after the review as he works hard and the rough work can get to the hands.. but now he has to share and when all the other lotion around this house is gone.. this is going to be the only one I use as I am not going to buy another brand as this is the best so I am going to stock up on this.. coupon or no coupon. I figure I save enough as I am traveling through life looking for the best products so once I find them why would I buy something inferior.. I turned 50 this year and I want my family to have the best. So this is the goal. I coupon to find the best not to live like a pauper and my family is dressed in rags and using junk that really only costs you either in extra use.. more product.. or in your self - esteem as you start to feel "CHEAP" all over if you are using things you don't LOVE. I can hardly wait to try the feet stuff. Thank you Gold Bond for sending me your products to try I am sold! Score some for youself and tell me your thoughts chat with me on twitter about the great products from Gold Bond. Just a note.. when a company sends me a product I will tell you what I HONESTLY  think as I do these for YOU, and so you will hear exactly what I think as well as my testing team. .. My testing team did like this.. and I will be squirting everyone I see with this fine product so they can try too! 

Why did God allow this? .. It's all about YOU!

Yesterday I heard a great sermon by Andrew Wommack regarding why did God create the earth and allow sin to continue and all the bad things to happen... a question many of us Christians have pondered through the years ... the answer is simple... God LOVED you sooooo much He didn't want to scrap everything so to speak and lose you. Andrew worded it differently but this was pretty much the jest of it. I am sure there are many other things that come into place but at the end of the day that is the answer to all the world's suffering in God's eyes... He didn't want to lose you, me, etc.. so blame yourself for the world 's suffering because just as you would rush into a area to save your child so goes the scope of life .. it is all about you!

How to get stickers off glass

This morning I woke up to my chicks and washing off my fresh eggs from my chickens. My real live peeps are in the house with me in a great big pen as I like to watch them for a few days before we put them in the outside pen to make sure that everyone is doing great.  The chicks we bought are MEAT BIRDS cornish rock that grow really fast and when we are ready to harvest them we will put them in our chicken plucker which my husband built that only takes 15 seconds to pluck a complete chicken this will keep us fed for a bit.


     If you have a sticker on some glass that you want to remove here is the fastest and best way... Use a blow dryer to remove the sticker and follow that with wiping it down with vinegar to get off any residue you can use vinegar alone but the blow dryer is faster.


Magnum PI review

I loved reviewing Magnum with his carefree ways and Higgins always picking on him. In the end Higgins admits to Magnum that he is Robin Master's but then tries to leave a doubt in his mind later as to if he was telling the truth. Magnum grows up and we see him in the end re-enlisting in the military and taking responsiblity for his daughter. I loved the beginning but even though the fans wanted the last season the last few magnums weren't my favorite ... the show to me took a turn and changed the character of Magnum a little bit, I would have liked to have seen him stay a little bit more carefree and not so responsible. You can watch Magnum on Netflix.com well worth the watch and brings back those old memories for those of us who were there for the first season.

We laugh but as we grow as women.. The best advice is be true to yourself and don't go with the flow. I got a chuckle at this picture how foolish some women are... be a mature woman of faith and always deal in truth.

*****Special note if you own a business, are a artist, etc.. and would like me to review a product for you all over the internet blasting out about your product... please email me at RuthieNewsToday@gmail.com

Try some Vintage TV... I am continuing my review on Magnum PI here we see Higgins in his usual snooty role..  Laughter does good like medicine... and saying NICE things to ourselves in our brain so to speak... If you want to have a healthy life learn to "march " to your own beat.. as the Bible says train up a child (aren't you God's child?) in the way that he should go. For me listening to gossip, griping, ugly news stories all day is downright depression. I refuse to do it! I take control of my thoughts I don't let every tv network etc.. tell me what to think ... we love netflix.com because we can choose what we watch.. We don't keep our heads in the sand ... but we don't have to go over the stories a million times.. and honestly as a mom I have to "INFLUENCE" and help those in my circles and if I am all upset ...how can I help others? Learn to work in the sphere of life God set out for you... okay.. now for Magnum...  I am in season 7 and just loving all the 70's styles and watching Magnum interact with TC and Rick and Higgins. Watching the adventures and the fun in the midst of the life of a PI living in Hawaii... paradise. Also it is fun to listen to Higgins and all his proper ways... it is so funny sometime I just have to laugh... I imagine that when these guys were off set they had to be rolling.  watch with me .. and stay tuned for more!
