I have heard of DealDash, but haven’t tried it yet because I am sure I would probably get addicted and go crazy with it, to be honest lol. If you don’t know what DealDash is, it’s an auction site where you buy bids for .60 cents each and an item starts at $0.00 and every time you place a bid, it goes up by 1 penny. If you lose the auction, you lose all of your bids, but you can get them all back if you buy the item at it’s full retail price.
It’s not too complicated. Check out the DealDash Facebook page and read more about the DealDash Wikipedia page. There are many videos on YouTube, here is one DealDash Review that you can check out. This woman says she won some Amazon gift cards for sometimes 1 bid and they are worth $10. That is a huge saving to me. I think I might give it a try to see if I can get a new phone. Wish me luck!
Everyone has to visit the doctor from time to time, some more than others depending on what ails them. I have to go once a month because I have serious health issues, but sometimes I have minor issues that I should discuss with my doctor, but I don’t always because it’s a bit embarrassing. Even though he is my doctor, it still makes me blush to have to talk about constipation, diarrhea or whatever embarrassing things you have to talk about. Sometimes you want to go to a website to check things out before speaking to your doctor, and Dr. Jim and Bob are probably the best people to help because they make you giggle.
Check out Dr. Jim and Bob’s Fun & Helpful Health Advice on Facebook and watch all of their videos. Every day, Dr. Jim and Bob scour the internet looking for people who have problems that they for one reason or another discuss, and they leave a reply with a link to one of their videos. Perhaps the health issues I have blogged about have stumped them and they just don’t know how to respond. Yeah, I’m sure that’s it. Hmmm…
Dr. Jim and Bob are with Blue Shield of California which is a non-profit company. They offer easy access to chiropractors, acupuncture and other alternative care. They offer access to great doctors and they have a wide range of health plans that you can actually afford. Imagine that.
I think I have benefitted from some of the advice that Dr. Jim and Bob have given in their videos. One of the issues I have is with heartburn and Dr. Jim and Bob discuss how perhaps I get heartburn because I might be eating too much or the wrong foods, or perhaps maybe I just need to go on a diet and lose some weight. Are you calling me fat Dr. Jim? LOL just kidding… or am I? Watch the video, it’s hilarious.
My very first experience with identity theft was when I had just turned 18 years old and went to get a job. The interviewer asked me how long I have been in this country and asked me for my green card. They did a credit check and that said that I wasn’t me. I had to schedule a new interview where I had to bring my social security card as well as my birth certificate and my California ID card to prove that I was me. That was in 1988. I wrote about this experience in my book.
My second experience was in 2004 when I tried to get our utilities turned on with PG&E, they told me that I had to bring in my ID card and my social security card because according to their credit check, I wasn’t who I said I was again. This time I asked and they told me the first name was Marsha.
Many years had gone by and I started seeing these commercials where a man was telling the world what his social security number was and daring people to steal it. That company was LifeLock. I decided that I did not want my prior experiences to happen again, so I signed up with Lifelock. I only pay $10 a month and my name and social security number has never been safer. I have been a member since January 2008.
As a member, Lifelock will send you a credit report every year and they will put restrictions in place so not even you can sign up for a credit card or buy a car without showing proof. They will send you email and/or text alerts when someone is trying to use your credit.
Here are some interesting and alarming stats. Households that make $100K per year have the highest fraud rate at 7.4%. The average cost per person who loses their identity is $1,513. 11.6 million adults were victims of identity theft in 2011 and $18 billion dollars was lost. 6.6% are smart phone users, 6.8% are people who interact with apps in social media websites, 8.2% “checked in” on websites with their smart phone with GPS and 10.1% are LinkedIn users.
How hack-friendly is your password? If you have a password that is only 6 characters without any symbols, a hacker will figure that password out in .000224 seconds, but if your password is 10 characters and uses a symbol (&%$#@), it could take them 20 days which gives you enough time to change your password every couple of weeks. How safe do you feel now? If they can figure out your email password and send emails on your behalf, imagine them stealing your bank account password and draining your account without you even knowing it.
If I were you, I would sign up with Lifelock today. Check out their website and LifeLock on Twitter. It’s nice knowing that my credit is safe.

Have you or anyone in your family recently have a bar mitzvah, bat mitzvah, christening, wedding or anniversary party that was so special that you wanted to preserve it forever? If so, did you or they have a professional photographer? Did they print out a photo album? If so, what was it like?
Wouldn’t you just love to have a book made that shows the beautiful colors in all of your pictures from your special event with a beautiful hardcover and thick pages that will last many lifetimes?
I would suggest heading on over to Photo Productions because they make quality photo albums that you will cherish forever.
I was looking at the slideshow in their front page and they really do look awesome. I’m not gonna lie, they are pricey, but they are quality and that is what you look for when you are preserving these wonderful memories. You wouldn’t get married in a cheap wedding dress you bought at Wal-Mart, so why would you buy a cheap photo album to put your biggest memories in? Basically, you get what you pay for.
They come in eight different album sizes, two orientations and three design styles. You can choose anywhere from 10 to 35 pages giving you 12 to 212 photos for your album.
They are in the United Kingdom and they offer free delivery. Like I said, you get what you pay for. If you aren’t in the UK they do ship internationally at an extra charge.
Check them out and see how awesome their albums look, well don’t let me stop you, go for it!
Can you imagine being chosen to take part in a Kia Rio Scavenger Hunt to meet a famous celebrity in Los Angeles. Wouldn’t that be a hoot? These people had the opportunity so they started at the famous Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round which has been a historic landmark since 1937. Did you know that that is where Walt Disney brought his children before he built Disneyland?
They went to Amoeba Records which is the most famous historic music store in Los Angeles. Hmmm, I didn’t even know they still had record stores. Apparently you can buy all of your music there on Vinyl, CD’s and Tapes. No 8-track? Next stop, Rodeo Drive where they had to count how many palm trees there were. That’s not easy to do because you know you can get distracted easily by all the pretty women… They got to eat at Pink’s Hot Dogs. I’ve been there, the hot dogs are pretty good I must say. Their final destination was the Roosevelt Hotel on Hollywood Blvd. where they met their celebrity Christina Milian.
That was a ride, wasn’t it? I love scavenger hunts and that one was pretty good. I think it would be cool to go on a scavenger hunt like that to meet a favorite celebrity. If you were given the chance, which celebrity would you like to meet? I can think of a few, but I think the one that I would most like to meet is Neil Patrick Harris. I just think he’s awesome.
Nevermind the scavenger hunt, can you imagine driving a Kia Rio? They have such awesome features like the USB Jack, bluetooth, navigation, rear camera and most notable UVO Technology from Microsoft. You know you can have one right? Just go to the Rio Explorer Page and check out their new 2013 5-door cars. I think it’s an awesome piece of machinery, I think they should just call it a 5-door awesome. But that’s just me.
If you and a friend could Zip and Dash anywhere, where woud it be? I would love to take this car to the beach, any beach is fine by me.
