Saturday Service Info



Remember last week we talked about grocery stores - do you think you would buy more with a basket or a cart?

 http://www.dailyspark.com/blog.asp?post=poll_do_you_shop_with_a_basket_or_a_cart

This was sent to me from Vee  last week. 




 

Okay - we all know we need to use sunscreen - right - but do you know the correct sunscreen and what it should or should not have in it?  I found this interesting.  I went to the site and tried to find one and I couldn't - if you know of a good one - let me know please.

You know how when you get flowers and after awhile they droop?  I have a remedy for you.  Put a penny in the bottom of the vase in the water.  It will keep the flowers from drooping.  Raindrops and Daisy's


Now my sister told me yesterday that if you lose your wallet or any form of ID - all you have to do is take it to the post office or put it in a post office box and they will send it to the person who lost it - just asking them for the postage.  Keep that in mind.

 
 SPEAKING OF DRIVER'S LICENSES ~
Check Your Driver's  License


I already removed mine. I suggest you all do the same. Now you can see anyone's Driver's License on the Internet, including your own!  I just searched for mine and there it was...picture and all!  Thanks              Homeland  Security! Go to the web site, and check it out.  It's unbelievable!! Just enter your name, city and state to see if yours is on file. After your license comes on the screen, click the box marked "Please Remove." This will remove it from public viewing, but not from law enforcement.  Please notify all your friends so they can protect themselves, too.   Believe me they will thank you for it.
Thank you Monica.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

mybabyjohn/Delores said...

I fell for that drivers licence thingie a couple of years ago...what a hoot!!

Sarah (Nikki) said...

Hey Chatty..that's wild about drivers license being posted online. Sometime seems so wrong about private info being out there.
Love that thought for the day...and wishing you an awesome weekend....hope it's wonderful in every way.

jack69 said...

Okay I ain't falling for the driver's license thing again!!!!! hahahahahah
Not sure about the basket and cart. but I do definitely b uy more with a cart..

Okay the next time my picture is posted I am gonna be mad!!! LOL

Take care and enjoy the weekend!!!!

laurie said...

oh my gosh you had me going for a bit there, you are a hoot!!!!

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

I thought maybe that's what I was going to get on the drivers license thing. Funny!

That was certainly informative about sunscreens. I've bookmarked that for more in-depth study.

Rob-bear said...

I hate it when people monkey around with my personal data.

I get so little sun that I don't worry about sunscreen. And wasn't there a recording about "Sunscreen" a few years ago?

OK, time to go back to bed. I've dealt with the important things for the day.

Gloria Hood said...

Since I am so light skinned, I avoid the sun as long as I can. Hate getting burned, and hate something on my skin that makes me hotter!

Mevely317 said...

Glad I opened/read the "grocery" link ... if I'd had to guess, turns out I'd have been WRONG!

I try n' avoid direct sun as much as possible, but here in Arizona even a minute or two can make a difference.

Hugs,
Myra

Ginny said...

The penny thing is strange, I wonder if it really works? Gads, now we need a reward for lugging a basket? If I start out with a basket, I soon chuck it and transfer everything to a cart, so I cab buy more.

Mamabug said...

Have a wonderful weekend Sandie!

Angela said...

I know I wouldn't buy as much if I shopped with a basket but then I would be going into the store 10 times that day or every day just to get the things that I need! The basket is fine if you are just getting 2 or 3 things but then it would be easier to just carry those items instead of using the basket! lol

I'll try the penny in the flowers.

I just bought Coppertone for babies in the spray and cream form that is very high in spf and all. I hope it works better than what ever it is that I've used in the past because I get burned to a crisp. I'm hoping they make it better for babies and so it will be good for me too!

Hugs,
Angela

TexWisGirl said...

that last quote/wish is perfect for graduates...

Denise Adorian said...

Ooo so much good info.My Dermatologist told Me the other day that he recommends, Oil of Oley.I didn't ask Him why though.I went to CVS to check it out,I thought it was a little much $$$ but that's just Me.Have a wonderful weekend My friend. Denise

Vee said...

Oh good heavens, I got tricked. I wonder if that thing is collecting names and addresses...I have a suspicious mind!

Mary said...

Whaaaa! What a good likeness on that DL. I was got! Heeheheh heeheeee

Debbie said...

Having trouble with clicking links so I just stayed right here on the post.
I love the penny one and will remember it.

Do you think it would help to put a penny in my bra, too?

Walking on Sunshine... said...

I fell for the license photo thing! AND I know I've done that before! Silly Sandie! Hope you're having a nice weekend!

Sr. Ann Marie said...

You really got me with that driver's license bit! I don't even drive but I do have a state ID through motor vehicle. Got me just the same!

Thank you. Love, Debby

Terri Buster said...

I've seen my grand's tender skin burn with 50 and 75 sunblock. Not all are alike and most run off in the water. I wish I knew of the best one to try.

TARYTERRE said...

Thanks for the chuckle about the Driver's license. Really had me for a minute. have a GREAT weekend. Take care.

Fiona said...

Love the license thing Sandie!!!

Have a lovely weekend.

Don't think we need to worry about suncream here in Ireland at the moment,
it is rain, rain and more rain!!!


Happy hugs


Fiona

The Jones Family said...

Interesting article on sunscreen which we DO need to worry about here in Arizona. Have a great weekend.

sparkle100-havealook.blogspot.com said...

Well I know that if you google peoples names you can find out allot . So would not surprise me anything now adays.

Happy Sat. Rain, rain here.

Perfect day for the Ducks.
Like that butterfly with your name Chatty Crone going across your blog. Cool!

BelovedBomber said...

That was funny! I actually just renewed my license today and totally believed the post. lol Have a great weekend!

Elaine said...

I hear that all suntan lotions will have a new label next year because they are not sweat or waterproof as claimed.. I need to try the penny trick

Arkansas Patti said...

Ok, you got me on the license though I have to admit like Knitty that the picture was a bit better than mine.

acorn hollow said...

Well you got me with the drivers license. I love the end saying.
Cathy

mare ball said...

I fell for the license thing too! I'm just finding you through another blog, and am following b/c you are a hoot! Love all your badges, crazy stuff. You have a great blog! Come visit my Ballpark!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Sandie, I had gotten caught before on that driver's license thing... Pretty picture of me for sure though!!!! ha ha

I had never heard that about a penny... I'll try it sometime.

That last quote is awesome... Thanks!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I have that song by Rascal Flatts on my IPOD...I love those beautiful words! Some good info in your post, my friend! Thank you!

SquirrelQueen said...

I almost always get a cart even for an item or two. My camera is always in my purse and it makes it heavy, the cart holds my purse.

I use Neutrogena and Lancome sunscreens, those are the best I have found.

You got me on the driver's license! You bad girl.

Thistle Cove Farm said...

I always use a cart so I don't have to carry my suitcase of a purse. I go with a list, usually, and stick to it.

Ann said...

sorry, couldn't get me to bite on the license thing...lol

Paula said...

Oh yeah I fell for it and now that I think of it I think I fell for it once before. I use Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPF 30 just because my daughter does and she is so smart 'cause I raised her. lol

That corgi :) said...

I did remember about the driver's license before somewhere else so I didn't click on it this time, LOL :) That was interesting about the basket/cart at the grocery store. We tend to use both (but not at the same time) depending on whether it is just a few items or the weekly shopping. I'm rarely out in the sun these days, but I still need to remember to wear sunscreen; it is a great reminder to do so!

enjoy Sunday!

betty

Susan said...

Hi Sandie...I'm going to remember about the penny next time I get tulips. They ALWAYS droop. Ha ha ha haha Got me on the driver's license. When I saw that monkey, I cracked up. LOVED that I weighed 120 pounds, though. That , in itself, was worth checking out. Susan

DeanO said...

Good stuff Sandie....more amazing what you can do with a SS#

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Happy weekend to you!

I'm checking in a day late here. I had a busy Saturday camping here in the woods. It's been beautiful weather. Thanks again for the info and the smiles!
Hope your Sunday is a great one.

SweetMarie said...

I'm blessed to know I have people in my life that truly love me.
I fell for the license thing! THH!
That was funny!
All my sunscreen has those two bad ingredients. I've disappointed to know that my doctors didn't steer me in the right direction for sunscreen with all my skin problems. Thank you for the info here! I'm going to loo into Neutrogena like one of the other bloggers mentioned.

Catherine said...

Yup...totally got me on the drivers license. But I like my weight on it! ;)
