2021 Holiday Gifts That Give Back

Wednesday, November 10, 2021

Let your holiday shopping list make a difference this year. These gifts give back- so shop with a purpose this year. Gift twice the joy.

Fire Department Coffee

Fire Dept. Coffee is a veteran-owned business and certified by the National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA), we're dedicated to providing great-tasting coffee to people everywhere. Every order is freshly roasted in Rockford, Illinois, by a dedicated team of firefighters, first responders, and coffee connoisseurs.

Inspired by the vital role that coffee plays in helping firefighters stay alert and energized through long shifts, Fire Dept. Coffee was founded in 2016. Founder and CEO Luke Schneider is a full-time firefighter/paramedic and a U.S. Navy veteran who teamed up with firefighter/paramedic Jason Patton who is also a full-time firefighter and VP for Fire Department Coffee.

Fire Department Coffee is run by active and retired firefighters, including our operations officer and chief coffee roaster.

Along with providing a growing selection of incredible coffee — including its signature spirit-infused roasts — Fire Dept. Coffee also supports heroes in need through the Fire Dept. Coffee Foundation. Ten percent of net proceeds are donated to help provide essential resources and assistance to first responders who have been injured on the job, mentally or physically, or who are facing other serious health challenges.

Toques From The Heart-

Toques from the Heart is a Canadian social enterprise that creates soft and stylish toques that make winter more comfortable for both you and a Canadian in need. For every toque purchased, Toques From The Heart gives a toque to a Canadian experiencing homelessness. The concept is simple- when you buy a toque, you give a toque, making it the perfect gift for someone this holiday season for someone you know, and for someone who needs it.

This is also the best time to get a toque as a gift so that we are able to donate as many as possible before the Holiday season and the weather gets too cold.

They also make giving easy as every toque comes with a card that tells the person that they helped keep a Canadian warm this winter because they received one of our toques. Then they can easily check out our website and social media pages to see the impact of their giving!

This year they have launched with a new collection of toques, there is truly one for everyone! With every toque you purchase, you are helping us donate to those who need it the most, helping us all stay warm together this winter. There are three styles that are live right now that helps you give twice!

Today's Random Thoughts

I must say I really dislike the fact that our clocks turned back and it's so much darker now, earlier. The sky is already giving us less blue to it daily, and winter is closing in, with news today of winter storms appearing all around us. This has been one of the reasons we had always gone south for the winter when we could go. We missed the last year or two that we didn't go, and were looking forward to this year when we heard the border to the USA was opening. Unfortunately, and for now, we weren't able to head south. We believe due to a doctor's negligence, and misdiagnoses on a couple issues of my husband's, he may have been given the wrong medication that caused some issues for him we are trying to work out and have him tested for. But until all the tests come back, I can't say for sure. It's a wait game while we wait . At this moment though he cannot travel. Hoping for a speedier recovery from all this and I ask that you add Gerry to your prayers please.

The food prices are sure enough to make me cringe- yet glad I am not feeding a big family. I must say the prices in the USA were cheaper -and we sure miss that. Miss the fresher food and the dollar stores too!  Having our dollar equal to 80 cents had been good too for this year. Gas prices though haven't been good, and we had filled up with propane and gas - as we had intentions to leave- and that was $415! Traveling with a 37' RV though does cost for gas for sure.

I see the cost of bacon like they had said, was going to be going up, did. I laughed when I saw a package today that said sale- $7.50! Sale?? Geesh! It's cheaper if you buy bacon ends- this package was $4.50 and more meat on it than what I would get in a most regular bacon packs once it cooks up!

I'm not sure what this month will bring for us- higher bills -LOL.. now that the furnace is on more and we are using more power.. but it was quite nice this Halloween to see no snow here. And still no snow, but the temperatures are dropping fast, and even Jake the dog would rather hibernate inside where it's warm than to go outside. I'd rather be walking, seeing the blue sky again, and just getting outdoors more. Will keep my fingers crossed for Gerry to get some test results back to figure out what's happening, get treated, and perhaps- head away from this soon to be- Winter Wonderland.

5 Great Smartphone Games to Accompany You on Your Next Trip Away

Tuesday, November 9, 2021


You might be travelling to Queenslands Gold Coast or heading to Las Vegas for a memorable weekend away, only for boredom to set in along the way. Thankfully, that’s where the modern-day smartphone can come in handy with its ability to house an extensive selection of new and improved games.


The titles people access via a smartphone device have come on leaps and bounds, particularly in recent times. Former classics, such as Snake and Tetris, are now firmly in the past after being replaced with dramatically improved gaming options from a wide variety of genres. For example, console gamers can now enjoy a range of games that have jumped over to mobile, perhaps even elevating the experience further by adding a joystick to their smartphone setup. Likewise, casino gamers can access a huge selection of themed slots or classic table games after depositing money using well-known and reputable brands. Essentially, smartphone gaming is easier than ever before, and the games in which we can access have never been to such a high standard.


Due to the ongoing improvements made in the smartphone games we can surf the web for and download on both iOS and Android, smartphone gaming as an all-round entertainment option has risen to prominence. The gaming options available make for the ideal travel companion in times of need, too. With that in mind, below is a look at five of the best smartphone games to download for your next vacation.


Angry Birds 2


You’ve probably heard of Angry Birds before, although you might not necessarily be aware that there’s a second installment of the iconic game now available to download on mobile. Essentially serving up the same shooting birds at angry pigs scenario as previously, except with new and improved levels, Angry Birds 2 is a fun and entertaining game to pass the time.


Genshin Impact


With its stunning visuals and gorgeous graphics, Genshin Impact is a delight to sample. Compared to Zelda: Breath of the Wild, this action-RPG which is based in a fantasy world is free to play and offers smartphone gamers with a truly fantastic mobile gaming experience. In fact, Genshin Impact is the perfect game to play which illustrates just how far smartphone gaming has come.


Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go is all about exploring an outdoor environment and immersing yourself in nature as you aim to track down rare Pokemon, fill up your Pok√©dex, take down gyms, complete quests, and trade Pokemon with fellow trainers along the way. Given its offering, it’s, therefore, the ideal game to take on your travels. Depending on where you are in the world, the game will certainly keep you busy.


Brawl Stars

A mobile-first battle royale epic, Brawl Stars is another smartphone title that has risen up the mobile gaming ranks in recent times. Offering bundles of chaos and the all-round action gamers love to enjoy, the game specializes in 3v3 combat over multiple game modes. As you master your brawl game, you can unlock and upgrade different characters, complete a huge selection of quests, find new locations, and a whole lot more.


Grid Autosport

In terms of a mobile racer, you’ll struggle to find a better game than Grid Autosport and its superb product. One of the best racing games ever to have graced the smartphone gaming space, Grid Autosport is a full classic console racer that has made the transition over to mobile rather beautifully. The game is fast, fun and full of action.


Other options include Candy Crush Friends Saga, Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time, and Words With Friends 2.
