Best Five Dollars I’ve Ever Spent


This little baby only set me back $4.99 and I spent the better portion of the afternoon floating on her. When you talk about simple pleasures, this would be at the top of the list.

Nothing like a day of hydrotherapy, floating away in the Gulf, the temperature of a bathtub on a day in the mid 90s. THIS is the kind of job I could get used to.

This little weekend getaway is the culmination of a very long birthday celebration. Turning 50 has not been bad. Not bad at all.

    I’m so glad you are having fun. Happy Birthday again. This is it…no more birthday celebrations for a year. Soak it up now.

  3. I hear you; floating rocks. I did a whole post on it this summer. I”m jealous now just looking at your float. Enjoy.

    Nothing like it! I had my own little slice of that heaven this summer on a lake in New Hampshire so I know your bliss! Have fun!

  5. Recently, there has been a great deal of investigation by the
    FTC against blogs and website developers
    for not stating advertising income, or existing
    connections with advertising networks.

    What are your ideas about how this could potentially effect
    the blogging world?

    • I find it rather odd that this comment was left on this post. Or this blog for that matter as I don’t do reviews.

      My thoughts, however, if you disclose that you are doing a paid review or that you received product for free then all the power to you.

      Most bloggers are transparent about their affiliations, so as far as I am concerned the FTC is not coming up with anything new. What this legislation will effect are paid spokespeople in traditional PR and advertising campaigns. But seriously, did we every think these celebs were doing it for free? Did we buy the products because they endorsed them? If yes, they are entitled to compensation.

      How’s that?
