The Keurig® Brewing System is flexible, allowing you to choose which beverages you’d like to enjoy.  The New Keurig® 2.0 Brewing System is unique … it allows you to brew a cup and a carafe!  The Keurig® 2.0 Brewing Technology™ enables the brewer to recognize the inserted Keurig® pack and optimize to the recommended, customized setting for that particular beverage.

Keurig® 2.0 Brewing Technology™ reads each lid to deliver a perfect cup or carafe every time.  This ensures that the Keurig® 2.0 system delivers on the promise of excellent quality beverages, produced simply and consistently, using the best Keurig® brewer technology and new features like strength control.

The strength control is perfect for our household as there are days that a stronger cup of coffee is required.

In fact, there are mornings where more than one cup is required … love the carafe … it brews up to 4 cups at a time; which is perfect for my partner and I.  It means no more wasting coffee; 4 cups is just right for our morning routine!

The Keurig® 2.0 also has a timer so that you can set it at night to have a carafe of hot coffee waiting for you in the morning.

First Response – Misperceptions about Conception #ChurchDwightValue

When it comes to the science behind trying to get pregnant, a new study from the researchers at Yale School of Medicine and the maker of First Response™, the leader of at-home women’s diagnostics tests, shows that women today may not be getting all the information on fertility they need.  Some of the findings from the study revealed the following:

image 0069

Major Findings

  • 40% of women across all age groups expressed concern about their ability to conceive.
  • Over one-quarter of women surveyed were unaware of the adverse implications of sexually transmitted infections, obesity or smoking on fertility.
  • 75% of those surveyed said they get their information about reproductive health from a healthcare professional, 40% said they get their information about sexual reproductive health online.

Interestingly, the study also revealed the following misperceptions in regards to the reproductive health of women:

Misperceptions about Conception

  • 6 out of 10 women surveyed perceived that intercourse should be timed after ovulation (instead of before) to maximize chances of conception.
  • 41% of women believed that their ovaries continue to make new eggs.
  • 51% of women believe that having sex more than once per day increases chances of getting pregnant.
  • 30% of women were unaware that exposure to an STI may affect fertility.

Today there are many tools to help women better track and understand their reproductive health and detect pregnancy sooner. Only the First Response™ Digital Ovulation Test tracks your unique hormone levels, maximizing your chances of becoming pregnant.

When you think you might be pregnant, every day matters. With First to Detect™ enhanced technology, First Response™ can detect the pregnancy hormone 5 days before your expected period – no other test can do this.

Providing accuracy ratings of over 99% with both of these tools, you can feel confident in the accuracy of your results.

Discover the Nostalgia of Drive-In Movie Theatres #HyundaiDriveSquad

In the 1950s, Canada had over 250 drive-in theatres and they were the hottest ticket in town. In recent years, more than 4,000 drive-ins have gone dark across North America.

But it’s not too late share the joy of the drive-in movies with your family and friends at one Canada’s 50 remaining outdoor screens – so grab a blanket, squeeze every last drop out of the dying days of summer and catch a movie under the stars.  Or, add a stop on your fall road trip.

There are many perks to catching a flick in your own ride: you get to use your own sound system, enjoy comfortable seats, convenient cup holders, and there’s no walk to the car when it’s time to go home. They’re also often reasonably priced – many drive-ins offer carload prices, which means you pay one flat rate no matter how many people are in your car. Some even offer a double feature.

So put your car in park and remember to turn your headlights off (it’s the drive-in equivalent of texting at the movies) and don’t spill the popcorn – there’s no one to clean it up afterward except you.

Check out some of these drive-ins across the country:

  • The 5 Drive-In in Oakville, ON has three screens and operates double features seven nights a week from April to October.  In addition to their snack bar, they also have a classic diner and a volleyball court!
  • The Twilight Drive-In in Langley, BC is Metro Vancouver’s only drive-in. They also host swap-meets during the day (think flea market meets garage sale).
  • Valley Drive-In in Cambridge, NS recently added new screen and is one of the most popular drive-ins in the Maritimes. It’s open on weekends from May through September.
  • Saint-Eustache Drive-In in QC is Quebec’s largest drive-in, Saint-Eustache Drive-In has a capacity of 3,300 cars and boasts five large screens, a restaurant and arcade.

Tuesday Talk – September 16, 2014

Half way through the month of September already … do you believe it?  I’m proud to say that my daughter has been going to her part-time job and has been doing well.  She enjoys what’s she’s doing (so far); but, has already complained that she’s tired on certain days.

That’s life baby.  Can you imagine working full-time?  You’d probably have even less patience then.  Now imagine working all day long, and coming home to cook, made dinner, and do the laundry?  Only to have to do the same thing every single day of the week … and then take all that money you made and pay the mortgage, your car, bills, maybe even care for your kids?  Then let’s hope you have enough to buy food!

THAT’S what reality is.  You need to get a good education in order to get a better job in life.  I must say, it is a pleasure to have a working kid in the house.

Monday Mumblings – September 15, 2014

Alzheimer’s isn’t a fun thing to deal with; especially not when it’s your own parent!  My mom has had a rapid progression in the last three months.  Six months ago, the doctor considered my mom to be at a moderate level … now, my mom is at the advanced stage.

Last week, I had the urinary tract infection scare with my mom.  The doctor put her on 7 days worth of antibiotics … by the time Saturday rolled around again, I rushed her to the hospital again!  I had arrived at her house to visit (like I was doing on a daily basis); however, I found her slumped over, sitting in the kitchen chair, with her pills everywhere around her.  There were pills on the table, on the floor, on her lap, in her shoes, and anywhere you could see!  I was horrified!  Had she OD-ed?  I had no choice but to rush her to the emergency.

She hasn’t left the hospital since.  In other words, she’s been there for 9 days … she will not be returning to her home.  From the hospital she will have to be placed into a long term home because she requires 24 hour supervision.  This I did not expect.

I really don’t know how I’ve been functioning this past week nor how I will be able to continue to function, going forward!  I appreciate your prayers, good wishes, and happy thoughts.
