Its that time of year again. That's right back to school time and a great time for cold and cough time. Why do you think it is that we have so many colds at back to school time? You could answer this question a 100 different ways and quite possibly you would be right on every try. The good news for you is that Boogie Wipes is here to help us make our little ones cold season the most comfortable it can be.
I introduced these little wipes to my daughter many years ago. It seems as if Princess follows the same path as several of my children and hay fever affects her as well. So when I shared these little Boogie Wipes both my daughter and granddaughter were super happy. Boogie Wipes are moist and not dry which allowed easier wiping and less fussing.
The reason the Boogie Wipes are so easy to use is because they are made with saline and actually helps to dissolve the boogies or mucus that are present when the child suffers from cold or allergies. Not to even speak of the times that the little noses get dry because of the winter is cold outside and the artificial heat on the inside. Boogie Wipes offer lots of choices different wipes that include extra soft, grape scent, fresh scent, and magic menthol. The extra menthol helps to open up those extra stuffy noses. Many pediatricians also recommend using Boogie Wipes to be used as an alternative to the dry, hard, scratchy make the nose red tissues.
So you are starting to see why the Boogie Wipes might be preferred over the tissue but your wondering why not just use a baby wipe? Well there are many reasons why you should choose Boogie Wipes over the regular diaper baby wipe. These reasons include:
•Moisturize with Vitamin E, Aloe and Chamomile
•Fun Scents Kids Love
•Gentle Enough for All Ages
•Phthalate & Paraben Free
- packed sons clothes to go to college
- taken youngest son to doctor
- kids have started school
I must still
- pack sons other belongings and finish laundry so that all will be done
- take son to specialist
- straighten house up

I want to tell you about a terrific sauce that I was lucky enough to find. The sauce I speak of is Chaka's mmm Sauce. Oh it is great. My father in law (who thinks he has seen the best) loved it. I used this sauce one night and invited company over. I wanted to see what all thought about it. Boy were they surprised. I had marinated the meat in a Ziploc baggie overnight and we grilled that and the party was on. In fact the sauce actually made the party come to life.
Chaka's MMM Sauce had meager beginnings starting out in a small California kitchen. The sauce had been one of those great family recipes that everyone loved. You know the kind the sort that you just can't get enough of. Well, that's not even the best part about the wonderful sauce. Let me share with you one of the best parts, the Chaka's MMM Sauce is fat free, sugar free, and dairy free. Nearly everyone who could not enjoy marinades before will and can enjoy Chaka's MMM Sauce. The great marinade is recommended to be used with meat, poultry, fish or veggies. Believe me you will love it from the very first bite.
Chaka himself is a hero of sorts. He resembles Mr. T and preaches about the dangers of drug abuse. In this modern day and time this is a speech that can not be spread out enough. To read all about Chaka's adventures you will have to visit the Chaka's MMM Sauce website.
Recipe lovers don't worry Chaka's MMM Sauce website has plenty of those. Here is one that I found on the website. I tried it and loved it.
- 1-1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
- 1 egg
- 1-4 oz. can mushrooms - drained
- 1-3/8 oz, can sliced olives - drained
- 1 slice of bread - cut into small pieces
- 1/2 cup of "CHAKAS" MMM SAUCE
Mix all the above together.
Put into a loaf pan.
Bake at 350 for approximately 50 minutes.

Sunday Stealing originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme. Let's go!
Today we ripped this meme off a blogger known as MelRoXx of the blog Life of a Mean Jean. She explains that she was tagged to do the meme by gaelikaa and she states that it's called The Blame Tara Meme. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go.
