Google Phone Looks Hot!

Watch out iPhone as here comes Google phones! Check out this snippet from an article I was reading earlier today:

First came the fervent and persistent rumours of a Google mobile phone.

Then, just six short weeks ago, the search supremo (and just-about-everything-else-online supremo) announced there would not be a ‘Google phone' per se, but rather dozens of them from a raft of mobile manufacturers, and all built on an open Linux-based mobile phone platform named Android.

Now things are picking up steam, with Gizmodo posting a snap of one of the rumoured score of prototype phones circulating around the Googleplex and in the r&d labs of the mobile makers.

Full Article Here

I am thinking they are looking pretty hot, and I am personally looking forward to their debut.

Credit Repair Road Map - A Review

The 2007 holiday season is just about over. The Christmas presents have all been wrapped, and unwrapped, stockings empty, and my digestion is just about returning to normal after Christmas dinner, and rounds of goodies, sweets, and other foodstuffs that are not so good for your health, but taste so wonderful.....sigh....

Now we are heading into that other season ... paying off the holiday bills season! And it is a great time of year for those who may be in or are finding themselves in a bit of credit troubles to read up on Credit Repair Tips such as those offered at Credit Repair Road, which is the site that I am reviewing for you dear readers today.

Credit Repair Road is a very young site, but from my findings is already offering some highly informative, and useful information for its users. Topics include Credit Basics, Money Management, Credit Companies, and more. They also include Credit Repair Sample Letters, which I thought would be a great communication tool for those looking to repair credit.

Overall I found the site easy to use, and not overly flashy, which is my own preference. I am interested in the content of the site, and appreciate that it is easy on the old eyes...B)

If you are looking for some solid info on credit repair you might just want to give Credit Repair Road a try. Just click on one of the linkys above to take you to their site.

Tis The Season For Winter Getaways

Can you tell by my last posting that I am starting to get a wee bit frazzled with the whole Christmas shopping thing?! ;) To be honest I would rather be spending the day planning a fun winter getaway. :D

Regular readers here already know (and if you don't start paying attention eh!) that I love to travel (who doesn't) and over the years I have learned a bit about travelling smart.

One way to insure that you get the most bang from your travel buck is to learn as much as you can about your destination. Here as an example is an awesome city travel guide to Nassau in the Bahamas. If you check out the page you will find listings on Cheap Hotels, and descriptions on what you can expect from them. There is also a handy list to Nassau attractions, and events, and even a page to click on for the weather forecast. Pretty cool eh! B)

The Nassau guide is only one example. If you are planning an upcoming winter getaway you might want to surf on over to the website, and check out their 500 plus city guides to all the top travel destinations. I have found their guides to be informative, and helpful.

Happy Travels!

My thanks to my sponsor.

Checking That List

It seems I have been checking that list, over, and over, and over again! Every time I think I have come to the end of my Christmas shopping lollipop I realise I have forgotten someone. Today I dashed out because I realised I had not picked up anything yet for my stepfather, and since the folks live quite a long-distance away I need to ship their gifts ...

Next year I am going to get an organiser just for gift buying! Guess that is a sensible thing to do when you have a big family.

Happy Shopping!

Payday Loans ABC - A Website Review

Everybody goes through rough financial patches at one time or another throughout their lives, unless you are a Hilton of course, and in that case do not worry about reading the rest of this blog entry. ;)

Now for all the rest of us billion plus in the working world lets discuss payday loans for a bit. Payday loans also known as cash advances have become quite popular and even controversial to a degree of late. Some people think that these types of loans are too easy to obtain online, and others see them as a means to get over a financial hump.

I am not too proud too admit that I have needed a cash advance a few times in the not too distant past. As long as you are fully aware of the terms, and are able to pay them back on time they are ok in my opinion for emergencies.

Payday Loans ABC is an online resource for payday loans. I have found that their website is both informative, and very easy to use. If you are interested in learning more about cash advances that do not require a fax or getting the latest news from the payday loan industry then this guide will benefit you in my opinion. Just click on the link above for further info directly from their website.

Wordless Wednesday - "Feeling Festive"

Feeling Festive

I am definitely in the festive mood!

The above photo is of our Christmas tree this year. :D

The Bubblenator

The above image is of a wee elf ornament that I currently have hanging from my Christmas tree. He was a gift from my sister so the ornament does have a special place in my heart, however even I admit this wee elfkin is a rather disturbing looking creature. Or maybe it is just me....

Now you maybe wondering how I added the holiday message to the image. If so, it was EASY! To create the bubble text I used The Bubblenator, which is a fun, free, online service that anybody can use. Just click on the link that I have added into this blog entry, and follow the easy instructions on how to use the service.

Basically all you do is provide a link to the photo or image of your choice. Once that is done and you see your image you add in a bubble, and type up some text to go with it. The site will then give you the code to use, and you just copy, and paste that code into your blog or site. Like I said it was quite easy to do, and you are really only limited by your imagination. :D

I personally like to add images to my blogs in order to jazz them up a bit, and adding funny bubble quotes or captions will make them more interesting, and unique in my opinion.

Shopping Along Bloor Street Sunday Afternoon

Shopping on Bloor Street in Toronto

For those who are not familiar with it, Bloor Street in Toronto, Canada is normally very busy, and highly trafficked year round. Yesterday shopping along Bloor was very lonely indeed as we were hit with a major winter storm.

While it was very pretty, and a breeze for shopping (the stores were empty) I do admit I felt bad for many of the local shopkeepers who saw very little business with only 8 days to go until Christmas.

Happy Shopping!

Purchasing Space Heaters

Dang it's cold outside! Yesterday we went through the first major snowstorm of the season, and yes our thoughts turned to space heaters. Just like in the summer when it was too hot at hubby's office, now it is simply freezing!

One great online shop for all your space heating needs is the DESA Online Outlet. They have really beautiful gas fireplaces like the one in the photo above, and even gas space heaters that are suitable for the outdoors.

Currently DESA is offering free shipping on certain products right up until Christmas, so if you are looking for a home heating product now is a good time to check them out. :D

Happy Shopping!

Making That List & Checking It Twice

View Outside Toronto Snowstorm

A view from outside my window Sunday morning

On a blustery morning such as this it is a great time for Torontonians (or other urbanites depending on where you live) to be utilising the TTC (Toronto Transit Commission - our local public transport) to get in some Christmas shopping.

I do not advise driving in this weather, but the subway is running great! Also if you stay out of the shopping malls, and visit your local village type stores they should be empty making shopping a breeze. Plus the smaller merchants will be very happy to see ya! :D

Yesterday, I wrapped up my final major Christmas purchases in China Town, and Kensington Market, and I can tell you first hand that because of the snowy weather I pretty much had the run of both places, which is unheard of otherwise. Sweet!

Happy Shopping!

Do Not Drink And Drive

Do not drink and drive is the message being sent by the promotion pictured above. The man in the giant glass is a former drunk driver that is being used to spread this very important message throughout the United Kingdom. This particular display is located at Paddington Station in London, England, to promote this government anti-drinking campaign.

Hopefully it works at getting this message across....

Electronic Tombstones

Hubby forwarded me a CNN article earlier this morning in regards to electronic tombstones. Perhaps he figured that I would think it is a neat idea because I have gone on so much about wanting a digital picture frame for my desk. And if that is the case then he would be spot on because I certainly think they are a capital idea! Not only is the marker a simple recording of dates, and names with this you can include images, music, and even videos.

Some Thoughts On Credit Cards

So now that we are in the height of holiday shopping frenzy have you been giving those credit cards of yours a goodly work out? Well if you answered no you do realise you are probably in the minority, which is why so many of us (including me at one time) get into credit card debt.

If you must use credit cards, (most people see them as a necessary evil I think) then do yourself a favour and check out a good credit card comparison website such as the one I have linked to.

Not all credit cards are created equal, nor suitable for everyone's budgets. If you are a smart consumer you will shop around for one that offers the best rates, and 0% balance transfers in order to maximise your own savings, and reduce debt.

Cough & Cold Medicines Harmful To Children

A warning has been put out regarding cough medicine for children that is rather scary considering the amount of times I gave my own kids cold remedies bought at the pharmacy when they were small.

The New England Journal of Medicine (the medical world's bible) is calling for the immediate removal of all paediatric cough and cold remedies from the marketplace.

Apparently studies have shown that these medicines do no good for children under that age of six, and in fact have the potential of causing great harm.

Perhaps we should start looking to folk remedies of old like chicken soup, which I personally find quite comforting, and helpful, and forget about these over-the-counter medicines that have become highly questionable anyway.

Cheers To Good Health!

Are You Looking For A Car Loan?

If you are looking to obtain a car loan you might just want to have a look at this online Auto Loans Financing resource I was having a look at this morning. Auto Loans Mania is not only informative, but it provides a means to apply for car financing directly online. Their speciality is applicants who have no credit history or a problematic one so if you fall into either category no worries...just surf on over via that link I have added into this entry and check them out. :D

I have personally found that the Auto Loans Mania website is easy to navigate, well designed, and simple to use.

Black & Decker Recalls Toasters

If you have recently purchased a Black & Decker toaster here is a heads up. The company is recalling 23,000 two-slice black infra-wave toasters that come with a digital display. The model number, which is printed on the rating plate on the bottom of the toaster should be checked. If it is a ST2000 model then stop using it immediately as it is a potential fire hazard.

Complete details on this recall are located here.

Unique Gift Idea

I like to gift personal gifts. I want the people that I am giving a gift to in short order to be:

1. happy with it, and

2. know that I have put some real thought into the gift I have given them

I have found their website to be well designed, and very easy to use. Each of their products comes with their own customer satisfaction guarantee, which is outlined on their site.

Rent A Garage In The UK

Good morning my peeps! Are you in the market for a garage? Specifically are you in need of a garage rental or place to park in the United Kingdom? If so, do read on as I am taking a look at a Rent a Garage website, and online resource today that I believe will be helpful to you.

The website I am reviewing (click on the link above at any time to access the site for yourself) belongs to Park Let Ltd. Park Let was formed by a group of people just like you, and I. These folks spent years wrestling with the frustrations caused by commuting in London every day, and they decided to do something about it hence the Park Let website!

I surfed on over to the website this morning, and was immediately impressed with the lay out, and ease of design. This site is meant to be no nonsense, and very user friendly. I like that! B)

Searches of the site are made very easy with the use of search boxes, they also allow for more than one search term meaning you can do look-ups by postal code, city or even a large navigational map.

If you have a space that is suitable for rental or for sale you can either contact Park Let through their website or give them a call via their telephone line: +448701624977 and speak with one of their experienced staffers.

Over all I found the website easy to use, and quite informative. I would recommend to anyone looking for parking space in the U.K.

Huggable Urns

Hot on the heels of the Muslim teddy bear scandal is this rather disturbing product -> the huggable urn! "These bears are intended as a cuddly repository for a loved one's ashes," according to the BBC. I'm sorry, and I'm certain that some people may see this as a wonderful idea, but I honestly find it creepy! What do you all think? Do you think it will perhaps help people with the grieving process? Or like me are you creeped out by this?

World AIDS Day

Here are some statistics for you:

People living with HIV:

* 33.2 million people living with HIV worldwide
* 30.8 million adults
* 15.4 million women
* 2.5 million children under 15

New HIV cases in 2007:

* 2.5 million total new cases
* 2.1 million adults
* 420,000 children under 15

HIV-related deaths in 2007:

* 2.1 million total deaths
* 1.7 million adult deaths
* 330,000 deaths among children under 15

Now let us ponder the fact that these are not merely stats. These numbers represent very real people! Since this is a topic that is dear to my heart I do donate to AIDS charities every year at this time. Please click on the link above to find out what you can do to help.

All figures above are obtained from UNAIDS AIDS Epidemic Update 2007.

I also want to take this opportunity to vent my disgust with the art student who rigged a fake bomb, and planted it outside of the Royal Ontario Museum disrupting the AIDS fundraiser this past week. It is sickening to me that anyone would ruin something that was designed to help suffering people in order to gain their 15 minutes of fame.
