Traveling with men-a must have

Can I just say that I wish I had invented this product? It’s Fresh Drop Bathroom Odor Preventor. OMG! A lifesaver when you are traveling. I just got back from vacation, and the bathroom didn’t have a fan (which is unusual).  I put this little gem next to the toilet and reminded both my husband and son to use it before going number two.

When you are sharing a hotel room, a little stink can go a long way.  This wondamus product will prevent the most vile emptying of the bowels not to kill you or your traveling companions.  Really, there have been times before I found Fresh Drop that I would literally gag after the hubby or son took a big one.

Actually it’s not a bad idea to carry a bottle with you.  You never know when that awkward moment might hit, and you don’t want to die of embarrassment.  Stacy’s travel tip for the day. You are welcome world.

For those whose travel frequently- please read.

Hey WordPress friends, for those of you who travel frequently, I have a request.

You know the toiletries that your hotel provides? Why not save and donate them to a battered women’s shelter. I asked the front desk at our hotel in Baltimore and they gave me five sets of all of the bathroom goodies they provide.

It would mean a great deal to a frightened woman and her children fleeing for their lives, usually with only the clothes on their backs to get some basic toiletries to call their own. I also will be donating http://www.Ipsy.com cosmetic bags, as that is a requested item.Shampoo 8-31-15

Reach out to your local shelter, they have wish lists on their websites as to what they need. I had some toiletries from our last vacation, so I have a nice bag full to donate today.

Thank you and Happy Monday.

A Love Letter to Hostess Ho Ho’s and Twinkies – NOT

But they taste so good!

One Regular Guy Writing about Food, Exercise and Living Past 100

Full disclosure: I ate Ho Ho’s and Twinkies as a kid and loved them just like the other kids. But, I was a child and didn’t know any better. I’m not a kid any more and wouldn’t think of eating them now. We didn’t know better back in the 40’s and 50’s. My mom used to give us Wonder Bread slices slathered with butter and topped with sugar as a treat. My dentist safaried in Africa on that treat years later.

Let’s look closely at a package of Ho Ho’s. There are three cupcakes inside. I was amazed to see that the serving size is all three, the whole package. Usually, they break it down to a smaller number to reduce the caloric count. One serving of the Ho Ho’s yields 370 calories, according to Calorie Count.

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

A reader was confused.
