When Do You Know It’s Time to Move

There comes a time in our lives when our current living situation just doesn’t work for us anymore.  This can be for various reasons, whether your family has grown or reduced in size, you’re changing jobs, relocating, looking for a change of scenery.  Whatever your reason may be, there are lots of helpful websites out there to help guide you in making smart financial decisions regarding your future mortgage. Mortgage Calculator is an excellent resource that I have personally used myself recently when we were renovating and selling our old home to purchase our new one.   The site has a feature which allows you to link to a specific calculation with the results already filled in. A couple of other things which makes the site unique are graphs of loan repayment along with monthly and yearly amortization tables. One of the calculators which I found to be extremely useful on the site, was one that helped in estimating mortgage affordability based on income https://www.mortgagecalculator.u

The Silver&Fit® Healthy Aging and Exercise Program Are Perfect for Me

Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post in partnership with The Silver&Fit® Healthy Aging and Exercise program Silver&Fit’s Fit at Home Program.  However, all opinions expressed are my own. Being active and staying fit are important to me.  I love to take long walks and love to exercise, but I do not enjoy the gym atmosphere. Also, with Covid and other restrictions, being in a gym doesn’t feel right to me at this time.  I enjoy the Silver&Fit® Healthy Aging and Exercise program Silver&Fit’s Fit at Home Program.  It is designed for people who are getting older and offers online classes on their Facebook and YouTube channels that I can take at my own leisure, from the comfort of my own home.  The classes are free to take, and there is a great variety of options and fitness levels.  To me,  they offer the best exercise program for people who are getting older. I like to mix up my workouts, so one day I may take an aerobics class, another day do some light weight training, an

Giveaway: The Little Penguin Pororo Treasure Island Adventure

    The voices of Pauly Shore and Jon Heder return in the latest installment of the globally popular "Pororo" franchise  THE LITTLE PENGUIN PORORO TREASURE ISLAND ADVENTURE  coming to Digital, On Demand and DVD April 20 from Lionsgate. Winner of the Dove Seal of Approval for All Ages, kids will instantly love this fun-filled adventure for the whole family. When plucky penguin Pororo and his animal pals decide to be the world’s greatest pirates, they discover a treasure map that brings them to a remote tropical island. There they meet marooned Captain Silver, who teaches them how to be good swashbucklers — but nasty Captain Dark shows up too, and wants the riches for himself. To claim the gold guarded by the fierce sea monster Kraken, they must solve a series of magical puzzles. But how can they escape the island that holds them all captive? I enjoyed this  movie and all of the adorable characters.  It is filled with so much fun, good laughs, lots of action and adventure.  P

Book Giveaway: The Boy Who Wanted to Rock

  I want to share this uplifting and fun children’s musical picture book from Broadway musical industry veteran David Weiser. The Boy Who Wanted to Rock  was inspired by Weiser’s 5-year-old son and engages children's [ages 3-8] creativity and sense of fun, rather than stifling it with rigid learning principles. The Boy Who Wanted to Rock introduces fundamental concepts like rhythm and pitch, and provides a basic overview of how keyboard and fretted instruments work. An upbeat tale told in rhyme, it begins with a frustrated child in a bedroom full of instruments who goes on an adventure meeting furry instructors, and ends with rock n' roll mayhem in a cave full of monsters!   A star-studded Broadway cast joins author David Weiser in bringing The Boy Who Wanted to Rock come to life in the audiobook version . West End star Ria Jones (Evita, Cats, Les Misérables, Sunset Boulevard UK Tour ) narrates and Broadway powerhouse Justin Matthew Sargent ( Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark
