The Search For Santa Paws Review

Get ready to have a fantastic family movie night with Disney’s The Search for Santa Paws! An adorable holiday movie that is a must have for any holiday movie lovers collection. I have been talking about this movie before it’s release on Facebook so many times, my friends on there know how much I have fallen in love with this movie that was released on November 23, 2010 on both DVD and Blu-ray hi-def.

One of the extras on the DVD my family loved the most is the sing along feature. Simply visit the Bonus Features section of Disney’s The Search for Santa Paws and click to have the sing along activated, watch as your children follow along with the words at the bottom of your television screen each time a song is sung in the movie! My family is a big sing along and dance along kinda family and so this was our most favorite bonus feature on the DVD.

Bonus Features:

  • An interactive Animated Pop-Up Book – ‘Buddies’ puppy star Rosebud reads a holiday story featuring new canine friends from The Search for Santa Paws.
  • Sing-Along Mode – colorful lyrics added to the film’s song sequences, so audiences can sing along to the film’s fantastic new songs.
  • Music Video – tween favorite Debby Ryan performs a great new arrangement of ‘Deck the Halls’.
  • Deleted Scenes

The Search for Santa Paws follows in the tradition of Disney’s classic holiday tales with a heartwarming story about the power of giving and the true meaning of Christmas. An exciting prequel, the movie allows kids of all ages to discover how the legendary friendship of Santa Claus and Santa Paws began – as it is the inspiring original film (in a timeline it precedes 2009’s Santa Buddies: The Legend of Santa Paws)

Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?

It happens every year, you visit stores and everyone is saying “Happy Holidays” to you probably starting in November. Too many people are worried about offending another person that it’s no longer acceptable to say “Merry Christmas” to a customer in a store, or to someone in passing walking down the street. Last year I recall going into Walmart and other stores to find that most every cashier was saying Merry Christmas! I was excited, happy and it was exciting to see that for once it was a merry season in the stores!

I get it, many people celebrate a variety of holidays, yes it is true, but I know if someone said to me Happy Hanukkah I wouldn’t get offended, because I would realize “oh that must be what holiday they celebrate”. Who cares, to me the words Happy Holidays is fine when shopping, the only reason is because to me it covers Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years all in two simple words.

The problem that I have is that now companies are pushing the phrase “Happy Holidays” onto consumers in creating a variety of Happy Holiday decorations and less Merry Christmas decorations. Last couple of years we had looked for a Merry Christmas sign that lights up to add to our lights we put up on our house and do you know how hard it was to find that saying?! It was extremely difficult!

I get it, we are a very diverse culture, the United States of America is the land of the free, the brave and we all have different customs & traditions since so many people from other countries have moved here. I get it, I respect that, but what the heck is wrong & offensive with saying Merry Christmas to another person during the Christmas season? Would it bother you if someone were to say Merry Christmas to you if you celebrate a different holiday or no holiday at all? To me I would accept it as a kind gesture, a seasonal greeting and an act of kindness for one to say Merry Christmas to me.

Mobile Marketing: Have you tried this?

It is the year 2010 and businesses are looking for a variety of ways to reach consumers, even during the political campaigns it seems mobile marketing has become a new way to market whatever you have to say or sell to consumers.  There are a variety of ways to market to your potential customers, aka prospects, but it seems that using text messaging may be a profitable thing to test drive. With some companies you can test drive their marketing program by signing up for a free trial in mobile marketing.

A free trial will get you 25 free text messages, allowing you to virtually test drive the system without a financial commitment. Whatever you choose to do, there are new ways to start marketing to prospects and trying to reach a larger audience. With so many people owning cell phones these days and being addicted to text messaging, I say give mobile marketing a test drive and let me know how it works out for you. I would be curious to see your results.

A study was done to see which phones were used in 2010, the top mobile phones and a majority of consumers seem to be using smartphones this time around. I am a Blackberry user myself and wouldn’t know what I would do without it. Smartphones and text messaging plans allow me to stay in contact with friends, family and clients virtually anywhere, anytime and without much effort.

I say out with the old and in with the new. Do not get rid of your current marketing plan but look into adding mobile marketing to your business and see how much it assists you in reaching your goals.

CLOSED HandClens Giveaway & Review

So today I get to share with you a great product, it is that time of year when everyone seems to be catching some form of sickness and with children being in school it can make it 100 times worse. I was able to work with BioShield Technologies to test out their product called HandClens® which is a really awesome product to keep hands not only clean but moisturized as well.

It is almost Winter time here in NH and with that comes dry skin, for me it’s mainly my hands as I wash them frequently through out the day. Sometimes when I try a new hand sanitizer I am often found looking for an alcohol free brand because the alcohol is what I believe dries your skin out and makes the little cuts in your hands sting on contact. This product has been a fun way to get my kids to wash their hands more often and I enjoy HandClens® because it simply makes my hands feel super soft after using it.

You can purchase HandClens® in manual or touchless dispensers, I am addicted to touchless dispensers but was able to review the manual dispenser. You can purchase this online at BioShield Technologies website or on


Yes it is true, one lucky entrant below will win a manual dispenser of HandClens® to have in their home!

Giveaway starts today and ends at 11:59pm EST on December 5th
