One of the neatest toys I have ever seen!
I saw some kids playing with this and it made me want to run out and buy one for my boys! Draw and trace with light. The GloDoodle is an innovative drawing pad that lets kids create sketches with colorful light, using only the touch of their finger. With the mess-free GloDoodle, kids just touch their finger or the included stylus to the screen, and colored light appears. The screen is completely transparent allowing you to trace anything, from photographs to faces. Featuring three different colors of light, the GloDoodle is an enjoyable, mess-free way for kids to experience art. Includes five bonus tracing stencils so you can doodle in three different colors. Requires 3AA batteries.

For the past 14 years, I have been going to the same hairdresser.

In Theatures this week!
A modern, 3D family comedy take on the classic tale, Jack Black (star of “Kung Fu Panda” and “School of Rock”) is Lemuel Gulliver, a lowly mailroom clerk at a New York newspaper. After Gulliver bluffs his way into an assignment writing about the Bermuda Triangle, he goes there only to be transported to an undiscovered land, Lilliput. In this fantastical new world, Gulliver is, at last, a bigger-than-life figure — in size and ego – especially after he starts telling tall tales, taking credit for his world’s greatest inventions, and placing himself at the center of its most historic events. Gulliver’s position is enhanced even further when he leads his new friends in a daring battle against their longtime enemies. But when Gulliver loses it all and puts the Lilliputians in peril, he must find a way to undo the damage. Ultimately, Gulliver becomes a true giant among men only when he learns that it’s how big you are on the inside that counts.
The next installment in the Meet The Parents franchise features an all-star comedy cast including Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Blythe Danner, Jessica Alba, Laura Dern, Harvey Keitel, Teri Polo, Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand.

AnJ plumbing
After seeing Jens List member refer them over and over, I called them last week to fix a leak outside. I have to say they were terrific! Even if you don’t need a plumber right now, SAVE THIS INFO…you never know when it will come in handy. Here are the other reviews I have rec’d in the past:
Referred by Jens List member ninasavelle@aol.com – after finding them on Jens List!
“They were AWESOME. They arrived on time, were thorough, explained everything and were reasonably priced. I really appreciate being able to call a new plumber with confidence.”
and also jiran.saevitzon@yahoo.com – after finding them on Jens List!
“After seeing their post on your list I called them up to fix my kitchen faucet which had a leak. I had also called another company who had just left my house and quoted me $570 to replace the inner tube of the faucet. A n J came out right away within 30 minutes of my call to them and replaced the tube for $85. I can’t thank them and you enough. I am now a huge fan and I hope everyone uses them in the future.”
And also knmaddy@pacbell.net
“I had them out yesterday. Jose and Miguel took care of all my plumbing needs. They even waited for my husband to run out and get a part needed with out charging for time. They were so reasonably priced. I’m so glad you referred them to me. Thank you sooo much. By the way, I called 5 different plumbers before I decided. So glad I went with AnJ.”
And also wendyzitzman@yahoo.com
“After working with at least 5 different plumbers, I finally found a referral for AnJ Plumbing through Jen’s List and decided to contact them, and I’m so glad I did. Since we’ve worked with AnJ, we truly realize what it’s like to work with HONEST, PROFESSIONAL & RELIABLE plumbers. Prices are more than fair and their work is outstanding. They’re true professionals in every sense of the word, and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking to for a great plumber. They are as good as it gets.”
