New Camera!

Had to break down and get a new digital camera today.Ours died and it wasn't the battery either!
Bought Walmart's cheapest- the Fujifilm one- which was on sale for $88 and had 2 x $10 gift cards that I earned through Stouffers.

When you blog and travel as much as I do, you do need a camera.
Luckily, the camera card and battery both worked in this camera as well as the charger, so we didn't need to buy any of those extras.
Now the pain is having to learn to use the new settings on this one, and I hate reading directions and learning how to operate something new. 


Review: Green Virgin Products' Soap Nuts Liquid

We wash at least one load of clothes daily. Jakey's blankets are changed on  Saturday and  bedding is changed on Sunday. I think everyone can agree, there is always laundry to do.

I was asked to review Green Virgin Products Soap Nuts Liquid. Green Virgin Products is starting their own movement to convert more consumers to using Soap Nuts Liquid Detergent as a way to make a positive impact on the planet.

In the past I have reviewed the actual soap nuts so this was a bit different to actually use the super concentrated liquid.  The liquid has a nice smell to it I found, is non toxic, chemical free and hypoallergenic. Bonus: it actually cleans as good as any other laundry detergent I use , but I did find it had a very refreshing clean, like outdoor freshness to the clothes after they came out of the wash. 

In addition to the non-toxic, safe attributes of this product, it also has a negative carbon footprint.  This is one environmentally responsible product that actually works.  Just one 8 oz. bottle of Green Virgin Products’ Soap Nuts Liquid does 120 loads of laundry. 

So was I impressed? You bet, and I'd recommend to give it a try.

Green Virgin Products is dedicated to selling only completely non-toxic and eco-friendly products.  Based in Tampa, FL, Green Virgin Products are currently available online.  For more information and special offers, go to and become a fan on Facebook at
