Veggie Tales Celery Night Fever DVD Review


Recently I had the opportunity to review Veggie Tales Celery Night Fever. It's always a pleasure for me to share my opinions and great finds with my readers, and this review is no different. 

Once we popped the DVD in the television, it was like a family reunion coming to the big screen. The kids were excited to see all of their favorite Veggie Tales characters, and I was excited to see them watching a wholesome movie that promoted family values. Before long, the familiar Veggie Tales music began to play and it was history from there!

In Veggie Tales Celery Night Fever we learned that it is never too late to forgive.  The Groovy Brothers band broke up 38 years ago when one of the members decided to go solo, and there were still hurt feelings as the former members entered their golden years. Now their grandchildren are coming together in an attempt to save Celery Park from land developer Bruce the Onion. As the Groovy Brothers try to put on a benefit to help save Celery Park, unresolved hurt feeling come to the surface and puts the concert in jeopardy. Laura and Junior had a falling out that ended badly as well and forgiveness was not in the plans. 

As the Groovy Brothers were trying to get the benefit concert together, I couldn't help but the reflect back to my childhood movie days when the Blues Brothers were "getting the band back together".  I really like the way that multiple generations were featured in this movie. I am a firm believer that children learn by example, and when the Groovy Brothers forgave each other they set the perfect example for Laura and Junior to follow. With all of the love in the air, even Bruce the Onion gave in and forgave the Groovy Brothers for a disagreement he had with them 38 years ago.

As Veggie Tales Celery Night Fever showed us tonight, it is never to late to forgive and make up. I recommend this movie to families young and not so young.  The music was fun, the characters were awesome and the message was timeless.

Ready.gov How To Prepare For A Hurricane Guide Download




Each year hurricanes cause billions of dollars worth of damage here in the United States. Entire towns have been wiped off the map and lives have been ripped apart as a result of these violent winds and rains. Since hurricanes are considered to be an act of God, there is really nothing we can do to avoid them. That  being said, there are things that we can do to prepare for them before they come so that we can minimize the impact of these treacherous storms on our lives and our property.

Ready.gov has put together a number of resources to help prepare you for hurricanes.  I found the How to Prepare For A Hurricane Guide very insightful and I believe it can be an effective tool for families to help minimize the impact of a hurricane on them and their immediate surroundings.  My grandmother used to tell me as a child to stay ready so that I would not have to get ready. I urge you to visit Ready.gov today and download the Prepare For a Hurricane Guide so that your family can be prepared if and when a hurricane comes to your city. Remember, being prepared in advance can save lives.

Ben's Garden Desk Set Review

Sponsored Ben's Garden Review and Giveaway

The Story of Ben's Garden

It all started back in 1992, when Ben Busko was just 8 years old, selling d├ęcoupage inspired by his garden. Armed with a paint brush, Ben developed his design sensibility and technique piece by piece; using imagery, a colorful palette and, words in entirely new ways; and BEN’S GARDEN was born. Ben’s charming designs are individually handcrafted using traditional artisan techniques honored for centuries, exclusively & entirely by hand in New York City. His decoupage pieces are all signed by Ben. What began as Ben’s passion for sharing his colorful and thoughtful world transformed into opportunities for his customers. To share a bit about themselves, Surround themselves with things they love, share a bit wit and an appreciation for fashion. Each piece tells a story. His special handmade pieces mean something to the person who buys them and it tells their own story. It all wonderfully results in turning a house into a home! Today you can discover Ben’s refreshing & Captivating collection of unique home, garden, gift and charm in our celebrated Ben’s Garden shops in New York. A very select group of exclusive and well curated boutiques across the United States, Internationally in every time zone and every continent. Ben Busko has demonstrated his decoupage technique to Martha Stewart on her Television show.

Searching for a Graduation Present?

It's that time of year for youth to take a step into adulthood when they graduate High School and move off to College. Ben's Garden offers a wide selection of graduation gifts for the student. And if your child is graduating from Kindergarten, Grade School, etc., Ben's Garden also carries gifts for their teacher too! Ben's Garden Desk Set Giveaway


I recently had the pleasure of reviewing a desk set from Ben's Garden. Soon as I opened the box I knew that I was in for a treat.  As I pushed back the packing peanuts a gorgeous ribbon wrapped package awaited me.

The package was beautifully wrapped in a unique butterfly gift wrap with the signature Ben's Garden green ribbon. To tell you the truth, I tried my hardest to preserve the gift wrap because it was just that pretty. It will certainly be used on a future craft project or gift from yours truly.
 

Once I opened the package there were 2 packages of note pads and a lovely decopaged paperweight.  The high quality notepads had funny sayings that made me chuckle as I jotted down my grocery list and daily errands on them.  I have plenty of paperweights laying around my house, but I have to say that the decopaged Ben's Garden one is by far the most exquisite. You can see the details in the craftsmanship of the paper weight and it became more of an accessory to my office rather than another heavy object to hold my papers in place. 

If you are looking for a gift for a special person in your life or just want to indulge in something nice for yourself I would certainly recommend browsing the selection of products at Ben's Garden. Not only will it be a handcrafted gift made by century old artisan techniques, but it will be a gift to remember for you the recipient.
