This is my REAL Nerium story…


This is my REAL Nerium story...

3 weeks of using Nerium AD

We have all tried products to help with the signs of aging. Come on I was using 7 products and a deep cleansing face mask weekly. Those products I will not mention but I can tell you the cost involved…

Daily Regime $323.00

Lift product to help with sagging jowls $ 46.00

Anti Aging Neck Creme $82.00

Mask $65.00

TOTAL $516.00 plus tax and shipping. (Dear lord I hope my husband doesn’t read this!)

Anyway… my point is that my friend was using Nerium AD which would cost me $110 plus tax and shipping or $80.00 plus if I wanted a monthly delivery.

I figured I would at least give it a try and save myself a few bucks… I will be brutally honest as I always am. I was not hopeful.

I took a picture before I started and another after three weeks.

I was very impressed with my three week results and decided to spread my love of Nerium to all.

The business side is amazing too and I hope it will help with some of our medical bills that come with having a daughter with Arthritis.

That picture is me… not BS here. Just me!

and please never tell my hubby what I was spending ­čÖé


Life in the Garden Pond…

Yesterday I added a few fish and a tadpole to our little garden pond.

I purchase 12c feeder fish to eat the mosquito larvae… My first batch lasted a while, in fact one still lives 7 years on. Hurricane Sandy turned our garden in to a river and the pond over flowed terribly and the river arose around it.

Up until this morning we had two old fish of different ages, 10 new baby fish and one frog, seemed to be last years tadpole.

I was sad I had not seen the bigger frog at all and we feared that he had been lost in sandy.

This morning I take a stroll to the pond and there he was waiting for me!


I was so happy to see him, his friend was laying in the plant in the pond.


Now all the fish seem alive and happy and the countdown to when the tadpole is a frog has begun…

We love frogs!


Is today my Wedding Anniversary?

Today in America it is Memorial Day.

Today I got up at 6am to head to work at the Hotel, Motel.

I get to work, sit down and write the date, I look at it and ask myself…

“Is today my Wedding Anniversary?”

Now I start to doubt myself… Telling myself that it is the 29th not the 27th.

I can’t decide which date it is, but I know it has been 19 years!

I text hubby…

“It’s not our anniversary today is it… It is the 29th right!”

He replies “Sorry, it is our anniversary ­čÖé that would be 19 then”

“Wow, I am getting forgetful, Happy Anniversary”

As I send it he replies… “Same day in history that I passed my driving test and the same month that Cov beat Tottenham in the FA Cup in 87”

That is how we roll…

Here we are 19 years ago today, looking 12 years old.

Now to get that date engraved somewhere, I fear that I will continue each year to bloody forget. Once he forgets it too we really are screwed.


You’ve been Pranked!

rotary phone

Phone rang at work this morning, I answered in my usual polite manner and a man asked if he could speak to Mr. Badcock.

I immediately thought I was being pranked.

I replied ” No-one of that name here”

“Spelt B-A-D-C-O-C-K”

“Yep, No one of that name here. Sorry”

“Is that 876-980-3404”

“No, Sorry. You have the wrong number”

Immediately the phone rings again.

“Oh, it’s you again… seems I must have the wrong number”


“OK” I reply and hang up.

This scenario went on for 30 minutes and many calls always saying, “I am not sure what is wrong with this phone”, and continually┬álooking for Mr. Badcock.

I really feel he was pranked by someone who was laughing out loud somewhere at him. I really wanted to ask if his name was Stu Pidasso!

Have you pranked anyone today?
