A Member of the "Porthole Posse"

More than 24% of Americans have enjoyed a cruise ship vacation and many make a cruise getaway a family reunion, friends escape, like-minded social, business and hobby groups. Regardless of the reason, group members like to identify as being part of a "sailing team". One of the easiest ways to accomplish that is to have the same promotional luggage tags accompany the identifier tags on everyone's luggage. Here's a bold, sassy way of proudly showing your group is sailing together as a member of the "Porthole Posse". You can purchase an all white tag or a blue tag with the appearance of your "business card" tucked in.

Work Like A Pro With The Makita Cordless Impact Driver

When I recently took on a major home project to renovate our outdoor kitchen, there was one tool that proved to be invaluable in my work. It was the Makita XDT131 18V LXT Cordless Impact Driver. With many tasks such as metal reframing and fastening, wood bolt drilling and fastening for the pergola and pilot hole, and fastening of Hardie board to the structure, having the Makita driver really made the job a more pleasant experience. The kit comes with its tool bag and two batteries so I was never delayed, as there was always one battery charging. Its versatile size was also great for those hard-to-reach places and awkward angles. I'm not a professional handyman but having the Makita cordless driver really gave me the confidence that I had completed the project like a pro.

The Sweetness of Easter

While Easter represents the resurrection of Jesus Christ for Christians around the world, the Holiday is also eagerly anticipated every year by children and "adult children" for its secular traditions like the Easter Bunny, Easter egg hunts,
and candy consumption.

The Easter Bunny tradition is believed to have arrived in America in the 1700s through German immigrants who settled in Pennsylvania. Their children made nests for Hares to lay their colored eggs. Eventually, the custom spread across the country and Easter morning deliveries expanded to include chocolate and other types of candy and gifts, while decorated baskets replaced nests.

Somewhere along the line adults started hiding these Easter eggs to create fun Easter egg hunts. In modern-day egg hunts, hollow, colored plastic eggs are often stuffed with candy, or in some cases, currency and coins. In fact, after Halloween, Easter is the second best candy-selling Holiday in the country. And according to the National Confectioners Association, more than 16 billion jelly beans are made in the U.S. each year for Easter.
