    This post sponsored by Cricket Media

    Here’s a gift your grandchildren will treasure all year long!

    cricket media

    As the holidays creep up on us, the question of what to get for the grandkids for holiday gifts becomes less of an activity in speculation and more of a nagging feeling. Many kids have so many toys that their parents actively campaign against receiving more of them. And giving gift cards or money just doesn’t seem very festive.

    5 top reasons you shouldn't buy hearing aids online

    This post sponsored by

    hearing aidIt is true that the Internet is the go-to place for the best deals on almost anything you can think of. However, there are some things you should not buy online – a hearing aid is one of them.

    The temptation to buy a hearing aid off EBay, Craigslist, or any other online retailer is understandable considering how expensive these devices can be. But, in the end, a cheaper hearing aid from a website may end up costing you more than you had anticipated.

    Here are the top five reasons why you should never buy a hearing aid off the Internet:

    It takes a precise kitchen scale for perfect portioning, though, as eye balling just doesn't cut it. The ETEKCITY Digital Kitchen Scale — a handy dandy tool I recently received free for review — portions precisely, perfectly. Every time.

    Ferning and fertility: KNOWHEN Advanced Ovulation Test (review)

    Okay, let's get the obvious out of the way from the start. You likely may ask: "Uh, why are you, a grandmother, testing an ovulation kit of any sort, Lisa?"

    Well, I'm not. Like most grandmothers, whether I'm ovulating or not is simply not something I worry about.
