How Your Kids Can Get FREE PIZZA!

How Your Kids Can Get FREE PIZZA!

Kids Can Still Earn Free Pizza Hut by Reading
If you were a kid in the 1980s or ‘90s, you may remember reading predominantly in order to earn free Pizza Hut personal pan pizzas. Launched in 1984, Pizza Hut’s BOOK IT! program is built on the premise that the promise of cheesy, deep-dish goodness would be an effective enough motivator to get kids to read more consistently. This year, the iconic summer reading program has gone digital—parents can enroll their kids (entering grades K-6) online and track their reading goals. Each child has the opportunity to earn one free, one-topping personal pan pizza for each month of June, July and August.

JOY99 Singer, Plumb, Finds Missing Uncle After 27 Years

JOY99 Singer, Plumb, Finds Missing Uncle After 27 Years


This is Johnny. He is my sweet uncle. He has been missing for 27 years. He was found dehydrated and homeless in Arizona Thursday and taken to an emergency room and after identifying him and looking for family the nurse gave him a phone to FaceTime with my mother. Our family is rejoicing that he has been found and that he is being given medical care but because of corona we can’t get into see him… so please celebrate with us his being found and please pray for his continued recovery and that we can be reunited as a family very soon. Most people don’t know this but when I was trying to come up with my band name for Plumb… “a girl named Johnny“ was one of the options, named after him… because he is my first memory of loving music… He and his acoustic guitar. With chewing tobacco in his cheek and a wad of bubble gum in mine he taught me how to spit into a spittoon. 😂 He was fun and handsome and funny and kind and I’ve missed having him in my life… and I am so thrilled that not only has he been found but the joy that my sweet mama and her siblings are experiencing right now is incredible! #PrettySureASongIsComingOut ofThis

Designer Water Bottles?

Designer Water Bottles?

Have you noticed the price of water bottles these days?  Well some how designers have convinced us that the container we tote our water in speaks volumes about who we are, how much we care about our planet and most of all how fashionable we are. Yep!  There’s no doubt about it, the water bottle is the new accessory and mine is “cooler” than yours.

Just like wearing a fabulous pair of red shoes or topping an outfit with a fabulous jacket, your water bottle is the new fashion accessory that can complement your outfit and express your savvy chic style. There are now hundreds of colors and styles of bottles on the market, with gorgeous details, the kind of details you would see on a high end pair of shoes, a handbag or traditional accessory.

The water bottle carrier had a moment in the early 90’s when everyone one dawned a special purse-like pouch with a strap that allowed you to carry a large liter of water. The carrier was fancy. The bottle of water was not.

Now the trend is not about buying water and a luxury carrier for your cheap bottle, but hitting your spiket with an envious and beautifully designed water bottle that looks and feels luxurious.

If you haven’t bitten the bullet and bought a highend bottle, start shopping. The trend isn’t going away and the your bottle speaks volumes. Choose a bottle just like you would shoes and/or a purse.

You are worth the investment and toting a cool bottle will take years off of your look.

You can do this.

Here’s The Secret To Having “The Cool House” On The Block

Here’s The Secret To Having “The Cool House” On The Block

A survey was recently done to deduce what exactly made a house a “cool” house! Their research found that it was a combo of the following factors:

  • Good snacks
  • Video games
  • Cable TV
  • Pool
  • Cool Toys
  • Big backyard
  • Board Games
  • A dog or cool pet
  • Siblings to play with
  • Trampoline

We think that if you’re from Michigan, that access to a lake creates an instant “cool house” factor. What else should be on this list?
