My brother called me the other day and told me he is encouraging my 87 year old Mom to have laser surgery. So I looked into it. It looks like the surgery is a breeze. The only discomfort would be the machine and pressure and it sounds like there is really no way for a mistake to be made as it is pretty much done by a computer that will shut down before it makes a error. Recovery at worse sounds like some burning in the eyes for just a few hours but they give you medicine to sleep and you can sleep it off. All I read is reading glasses so I am not a candidate for the surgery. My husband and I actually both have the same prescription which is great in a pinch we can share glasses. All said depending on your bravery level it may be a good opinion for seniors.




Here is Mom holding my older brother and one of my older sisters.

( I am not in any of the pictures Mom had 7 children and I came along later ;)

#BEARMOON SOAP


No automatic alt text available.

To order yours go to https://www.bearmoonsoap.com/

When I opened the box the first thing I noticed in my review of Bear moon soap was how wonderful it smelled! Because I wasn't feeling well that day (those of you on facebook with me http://www.Facebook.com/RuthiePople - send me a friend request) know I haven't been feeling well this week, so I put the soap on a tray in the living room while I was sleeping. I woke up and noticed that there was a really pleasant scent in the room and I realized it was the soap. I tried the soap and felt that it cleaned well as well as looked lovely in my bathroom. This is a perfect choice for the holidays to give your home that  homey feel. I know too that most people love soap gifts if you are traveling too over the fall season! I did receive this item for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

The Best stomach Relief ever!







To order yours go to https://www.tummydrops.com/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwqYfWBRDPARIsABjQRYx2Vt-f0E5EEtzI1UWdQw99IsO-jmtXy6BFTii6WgO9JylkUUNP_u0aAtUYEALw_wcB



These are amazing!  I have struggled with stomach issues in the past and even had a doctor tell me one time I don't know what to do for you. I had terrible acid reflux and at the time I was having lots of stomach trouble. Tummy drops is wonderful! All natural, kosher, etc.. Many flavors and THEY WORK! If you are at work or at home these babies will get the job done and calm your stomach right down. My personal experience is that these are the best instant cure for a upset stomach. I highly recommend this brand. I did receive this product for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

life as a sweepstaker.. sweeping locally



Sometimes we get so caught up with our current routine in sweeping that we forget the easiest sweepstakes are the ones that are local to us as there is such a low rate of entry. A great way to win a load of fun for your family and you. 

Here are a few tips to keep you in the know on the local sweepstakes...

Make a list of all the local radio and newspapers within driving range - Some may require you to pick up your prize. 

Listen to the radio stations online or while you are outside working. And get your phone ready to text or call. 

You can either pick up the newspapers or you can see many of them online. There are also groups too like ebates, groupons, etc.. that may have local contests I even saw a few giveaways on craiglist! 

Make note of furniture stores- which are famous for give-a -ways. Watch the small businesses and restaurants which constantly have something going a few times a year. 

Summer is right around the corner, which means,  there are events - car shows, fairs, and even home party lines go into stores like Fashion Bugs and grocery stores, etc.. and let you spin the wheel or put your name in a hat! 

Make up a handy list so that next year you will be able to just pull this out of a file - each year add to your list of hunting so you will know where to find these sweepstakes and after awhile you will find yourself dashing off to pick up the kids or one the way home from the grocery store and drop off a ballot or two.

Train your eyes to look for the ballot boxes, etc.. - Make up some index cards, etc.. ahead of time in case they have unlimited entry so you can "STUFF" the ballot box and you will have a  have a higher chance of winning. Many people stuff the ballot boxes with 50-100 entries - you can soak your paper in water so it is stiffer and easier to pull, decorate it, or put it on colored paper.  It is always better to be prepared than to try to react to the sweepstakes around you! If you go to a fair or your state fair fill your purse with your entries  so you aren't standing there writing for a hour having your friends ditching you and spending all day trying to find them - OR worse having that nagging feeling you didn't enter for that car you just knew had your name on it LOL! 

Open your mouth! Tell everyone you know you are the Sweepstake lady in your area.. you don't want to be a sweepstakes lady you want to be THE SWEEPSTAKES LADY.. the more you "advertise yourself.. the more people will TELL YOU about a sweepstakes Believe it or not your true friends want to help you win! With facebook, etc.. it is easy for people to message you. ASK your friends to do this! Don't be shy! Many of your friends could care less about sweepstakes but they love you !
With all these tips..  before long you will be able to have a nice big fat list of sweepstakes in your area and enjoy movies, nights out and some cool prizes. Happy Winning!!! Here are a few to get you started ;)

How to make your small shoes big #SHOES #FEET #BUNIONS

Here is one way you can get a shoe that is to tight to fit better. Put on two pairs of socks- 3 if possible.. Nice and thick..then blow dry them this should stretch out your shoe you can also try stretching them by putting long sticks in them - This will take longer but after blow drying them if that doesn’t work try putting in sticks or other large objects and leave them that way for a period of time and see if that works.





What is a bunion?

check out our new blog on Tumblr



https://popleshow.tumblr.com/




Morning all - This morning I am posting over here on tumblr - “PopleShow” blog :) Love the cat? My cat Blue is a Russian Blue - She is super friendly as Russian Blue’s are and are pretty much 1/2 dog one of the reasons these sweet fur babies are sought out by so many.

This morning we have a few things to talk about.. starting with Twitter
Social Media..
Twitter is the prime choice of marketers we have 65,000 followers there http://www.twitter.com/R47R I would have more.. but I took a few years off due to my divorce and remarriage in 2010-2012 Not to mention I was breaking a few ties from the celebrity gigs as I was moving to the country and even though I have many of my celebrity friends I was breaking off some of my work with celebrity types and wanted to EXPAND into a larger audience and a new direction. Not to say that I still wouldn’t work in that sphere it is just that I feel that I am pretty picky about who I want to work with.. snobbish .. well, on a professional level I have to keep my moral compass where I need it. Okay, with that.. so why is twitter the choice of those in the know? Because one tweet generates so many responses with no restrictions.. have to be a friend, yadda yadda.. just saying. Once I got a letter from a pr company begging me to send in a compliant of Twitter being chosen over Facebook for marketers. I just ignored it, as Twitter should be the choice as you get so much more visibility. 

Travel.. 
Now onto ... Travel.. Yellow Stone National Park is the first National Park declared in the world and the USA. The Indians years ago used to fear this land of smoke and hot springs. I asked the question around social media and found that the spot is breathtaking. The only thing is make sure you, you watch out for bears and obey the rules as there are Bison that will block your way in traffic - One person had half their buttock attacked from one. Also - People have been boiled alive in the hot Springs . It pays to follow the rules!



Branch our dog which I found out is a “DESIGNER DOG” - He’s a Toy fox terrier and begal mix. We used to call such species a mutt.. but  I guess the name is Toy Fox Beagle go figure... It cracks me up at times to think people are buying these mutts.. but then again .. they are so cute and I guess all the breeds at one point were most likely mutts :) Branch came to us from my son.



Clay built me a shelf for my african violets the base came from the bin wharehouse I have the review up on my blog now but will be posting it up on my blog soon. I love it! I also got a few more violets for my collection - these too are posted on youtube http://www.youtube.com/PopleBackyardFarm



Meet my Bombay Cat! “Shadow” - This kitty came to me from my neice. I am so excited that this cat has orange eyes. I just love them. These babies look like mini panthers.

Can you believe it? Bees are still out on nice days.. and even in the winter they come out of their hives for what is called a “cleansing” - Basically they are cleaning the hives. 



I always crochet, knit, etc.. usually everyday I block out some time to do that.. and last night I took a sweater that was shorter than I wanted and just did some crochet work on it to make it look longer. I used cotton yarn. Just a note if use cotton it does shrink over time as if you make a say twin blanket out of cotton within a few washes you will have a awesome “baby blanket: I will post a pic on instragram http://www.instragram.com/RuthieandClayPople so you guys can see it. 

Time for my second breakfast since I get up at 3 am and I will be eating a Kickass beef stick (the review is up on http://www.popleBackyardfarm.blogspot.com and then I will take a nap.zzz as I think I will watch a freebie movie on youtube (I post my freebies and sweepstakes up at http://www.facebook.com/RuthieandClayPople
