Staying at the Hilton

Posted by on Apr 25 2011 | Uncategorized

This post brought to you by Hiltons of Branson. All opinions are 100% mine.

Yep — I admit it. I’m a child of the 70′s — born in the late 60s, I spent the 70s bopping to all the fun disco tunes, including the Village People’s YMCA. Memories –  I tell ya…I could go on and on.

I just recently learned that the Village People are coming to Branson, Missouri on May 13th. This means that any self-respecting child of the 70s needs to hot-foot it over to the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing

Imagine this show — it promises to include all the biggest pop-culture tunes that peeps of my age remember so well. After the show ends, the Village People is even going to stick around to sign autographs!

I’m sure that I would have a lot of recovering to do after an evening like this, so staying at the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel would be ideal. No drive, luxury room…in fact, they’ve even put together a great package for concert guests. The package includes two supershow tickets and a one-night stay at the Hilton Promenade. Packages begin at $219.00 for two guests.

The entertainment along would be great to see, but factor in the shopping, the golf, the amusement parks and the spas and you’ve got a winning spot for a family vacation.

So…what do you think? Gonna head to Branson and catch the Village People? Travel back in time back to the days when Macho Man ruled the charts? Yeah…my personal favorite Village People song was definitely Macho Man. What was yours?

Town in Maine Passing Food Freedom Law

Posted by on Apr 22 2011 | Uncategorized

Several towns in Maine have proposed or passed food sovereignty laws that declare that the federal government cannot tell citizens what food products they can and cannot buy or sell locally.

Blue Hill, Maine, recently enacted a local food bill that protects the freedom of local citizens to choose their own food. The Tenth Amendment to the US Constitution prevents the federal government from interfering with state and local food business. The Amendment prohibits the federal government from exerting control not specifically granted by the Constitution.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FRESCHETTA® for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

The combination of convenience and great taste is always a perfect plus, especially when you can add healthy ingredients as well. FRESCHETTA® By the Slice satisfies on all three counts.

I recently received a fun package in the mail. Inside, I found some amazing goodies. I received a coupon for a free slice of Freschetta pizza and a six-piece storage set. Choosing my slice of pizza was the hardest part. I had to choose between chicken, spinach and mushroom, vegetable medley, BBQ chicken and six cheese medley. After hemming and hawing, I finally settled on chicken, spinach and mushroom and I was not disappointed! The pizza was delish…I did not need to store any pizza leftovers in the food storage set, but these containers and lids are a useful addition to my container collection.

Wanna get in on this goodness? You can! Leave me a comment to enter a contest to win a coupon for a free slice of Freschetta pizza and a six-piece storage set of your own. All entries received before midnight April 25, 2011 will be automatically entered to win the goods.

Manuka Honey Can Reverse Antibiotic Resistance

Posted by on Apr 14 2011 | Uncategorized

Researchers have found a way to fight strong super bugs naturally using manuka honey. This honey could be an efficient way to clear infected wounds and it could even reverse bacterial resistance to antibiotics.

Honey has antimicrobial properties. Traditional therapy with honey has been used in the topical treatment of wounds for thousands of years. Manuka honey comes from nectar collected by honey bees foraging on the manuka tree in New Zealand.

Apparently, the mechanisms of the honey’s germ fighting capabilities haven’t been known. Researchers want to document how it works. Researchers think that manuka honey can hamper the attachment of bacteria to tissues. This is important for the initiation of acute infections.

Honey can make MRSA more sensitive to antibiotics, so honey actually reverses antibiotic resistance, making existing antibiotics more effective against drug-resistant infections.

The use of manuka honey as a topical agent to eradicate bacteria from wounds could be cheaper and it might improve antibiotic therapy in the future.
