Yesterday my mom and I blanketed the city of Dubuque looking for
the ultimate buys at the city wide rummage sales. I got some good deals; a disco light, a leopard purse and a Nintendo DS for my daughter, a brand new Paper Jamz guitar, batting gloves and sandals for my son and some clothes. I typically do well at rummage sales but yesterday I got ripped off.
I bought 4 flashlights for one dollar. That’s a great deal and we need flashlights because when the power goes off at our house we are always scrambling to find flashlights and candles. I was happy with my purchase until we stopped at a store to buy batteries. It cost me $17 for four D’s and four C’s. When I got home I put the batteries in the
flashlights and none of them worked, not one! So I guess I’ll have to chalk that up to a lesson learned and will drag my heavy head to Wal-Mart to buy some new flashlights.
When I had lunch with my daughter at school the other day I took
a Nutella sandwich to eat. I figured my daughter would want to trade me for her peanut butter and jelly sandwich but I was wrong. She was disgusted by my sandwich and didn’t want to even try a bite because she claimed it was “unhealthy.” er friends listened as I told her that people in England have been eating Nutella sandwiches for over thirty years and that the commercials state that it’s healthy. My daughter claimed that anything that tasted that good couldn’t possibly be good for you. She was right.
I was ashamed this morning when I read that a woman won a lawsuit
against Nutella for its false claims of being a healthy food when it wasn’t and in the court case they compared the contents of Nutella to a candy bar. The woman won three million dollars and American consumers win too because everyone is eligible for a refund of up to $20 with no receipts involved.

So in a Nutella shell, I just recently fell in love with the product and now I discover it’s not good for you. That really sucks. But I guess on the bright side there will probably be lots of Nutella available at
Yesterday a woman surfaced in Mexico claiming to be carrying 9
babies after fertilization treatments. I was furious. But this morning it’s all over the news that she lied, she’s not pregnant at all. If we all get 15 minutes of fame why would you want to waste yours on a lie? This lady needs help. I think a week helping Octomom would be more than enough punishment.
Have a good one!
