Be Bold! Be Fearless! Taste Volvic Water: Hydration with a Side of Volcano!

Water is never “just water”. The proliferation of waters on the market is astounding. Look at the various segments and your eyes could cross trying to sort it all out. That’s one of the things that I like to do — sift things out for people to know the plus and minus sides of various products. Sometimes there are a few pluses, maybe a minus or two, but to be honest, the products are pretty similar and maybe no...

Thankfully there’s another way for you to score some guacamole and get it for FREE!! (YES, FREE!!)     Photo of cut avocados are courtesy of California Avocado Growers!

Staycation or Vacation? San Diego’s Marriott Marquis Makes You Feel Like You Are

Where are you going on vacation this year? Have you thought about it? I have! I have thought about it almost every day. I would love to go to Hawaii, but the budget isn’t quite ready for that.

California-Made GasLamp Popcorn Is a Great Snack! Mix Up Your Favorite Blends!

Looking for a really fun snack that tastes good too? I suggest these recipes from GasLamp Popcorn. I found out about this popcorn through my kid who said it was the best! So I bought a couple of bags– and have been impressed at the crunch of the popcorn and that it really has some flavor – even the plain has a taste profile to it that most don’t have. I do like their array of  flavors. Don’t know this brand?...
