#Review: NES Digital Thermometer

Many of us have been sick this year. It seems like it has lingered on forever! Coughing, sneezing, chills, rashes, fevers have been just the tip of the iceberg for many of us.

No worries, I feel fine now. 
I have needed a thermometer for awhile and was glad when I got the NES Digital Thermometer.
I remember when we had the old kind you had to dip in alcohol then shake and hope it works right.
Not this one!

Simple to use of course, push the button and look for the "L", put it on the right or left side of your mouth and listen for the 4 beeps which tells you it is done. Then look to see what your temp is. The LED display is clear too.
Easy peazy!

The nice thing about this thermometer is the colors as you can easily find it in a drawer. Also it has a flexible tip for taking temps other than the mouth. Yes, the instructions that come with it do tell you this.

The NES Digital Thermometer also has a memory function that keeps track of the last temp taken. That is a plus if you need to have this information.

Oh, and one last thing, the clear plastic case it comes in makes me reassured that I will have a clean thermometer the next time I use it.

Monday's Music Moves Me...It's A Freebie 2/23/15

Hey, it's Monday! That means it's time for another whirlwind of music by the Monday's Music Moves Me gals. You know us...hosted by Xmas Dolly and co-hosted by Stacy, Colette, and yours truly.

Before I get started here, don't forget that special link up we have for getting your social media noticed. Only link up where you need some followers. Music link is below my videos.

So, this week we have a freebie week and I thought I would have a little fun with ya all. 

Living in the city we have people from all walks of life here. It is not so unusual to see street performers of all kinds. Some good, some not so good but all just trying to make a buck so they can live another day. Today, I thought I would share some street performers I have found videos for from around the net.

First up: These three guys randomly get together to perform one awesome performance. It had me swinging back and forth.

Next up: I was absolutely floored (or is that street-ed) by this next guy. I mean who knew that flip flops and PVC could make this sound. It is about 10 minutes long but well worth it! I present, The Pipe Guy!

Finally: This girl has the pipes and I don't mean like the guy above. She can belt out a tune like nobodies business. It is just too bad more people were not paying attention to her.

That's it for this week. Make sure to link up and we will be by to visit. ~Naila Moon

#Review: Lifeguard Mini 1 Portable Charger #pluslifeguard

If you are like me, you have a lot of devices that have to be kept charged or they simply stop working. Take for the example my cell phone. There is nothing more bothersome than being in the middle of an important call and that battery dies. 

I have been in situations where there was an emergency too. The last thing I want to happen is my cell phone having no charge when I am out in the middle of nowhere and in an emergency situation.

I also use my Kindle quite a bit and like to have it charged up. I have been known on occasion to be reading a fantastic book and all of a sudden the device goes dead. Aggravation ensues to have to wait to charge and then finish my book. Any book lover can feel that pain.

That is why I was glad to receive the Lifeguard Mini 1 Portable Charger.  This wonderful little device is what you want to have on hand at all times. The Lifeguard Mini can either give the owner a quick boost in power or give full charge.

I tried it out on my Kindle when it was nearly powerless and within seconds my Kindle had juice to keep it going. I also tried it on my husband's cell phone and it powered up right away. Amazing!

The instruction do say to keep the Lifeguard Mini charged too so that if I would ever need it for emergency purposes or otherwise, it is ready to go. Get this, it can be recharged 800 times!

There are two different cables that come with the device so pretty much any technology I might have can be charged by this. My cell, Kindle, mp3 player, even my camera can get charged. The input/output spaces are clearly marked on the end which pretty much leaves it to be a no brainier for users.

Here is what the company has to say:
  • Smart plug and play Samsung built in grade A battery
  • Fully charge your phone and still have juice with the 3000m Ah
  • Quick charge or full charge within 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours
  • Tough aluminium shell that makes it impact resistant
  • CE, ROHS, and FCC certified
  • Purchasing now will get you a free lightning cable for convience with iPhones
  • Guaranteed for 18 months with a money-back guarantee

Seriously, with all this charged-up goodness, why would you not want one?

Saturday, February 21, 2015


Here it is another Saturday and it is snowing again. I am not complaining by far as we have had it mild compared to other states.
I am joining one of my musical buds, Cathy, from curiousasacathy.com for another day of musical bliss.

So, let's see what I have for you.

I was thinking about time today. It is crazy how quickly  it passes. Here we are in the Lenten season already and not too long ago it was just Christmas season. People have said it seems to go faster when you are older. I am beginning to think those people are right! Ah well...

So, my song for you today is about time. Enjoy and see you tomorrow! ~Naila Moon

#+Review: Francois et Mimi Stacking Mug Set with Metal Stand #StackingMugSet

Sometimes my husband and I like to just chat in the morning, like this morning, before he heads off to work.  He usually has a hot cup of coffee while I, not being a morning person, will drink Pepsi. Yes, that is me having my morning cup of Pepsi in our new stacking mugs.

My husband and his cup of coffee.

I just received these a few days ago and we really do like them. They come in a stack of four with these gorgeous bright colors of orange, yellow, blue, and pink. What I like too is the funky mix of the colored handles. It just make drinking out of them that much more fun.

I like that they also come with this metal stand which is absolutely great for us as we have so little cabinet space in our kitchen. I have them sitting by our coffee pot where Tamirisc can just grab one and pour. They come out of the stand so easily that this is not a problem at all.

See that little lip on the bottom of my mug? That little lip is on each and every mug which allows the mugs to stack so nicely in the metal stand. This is certainly a nice thing about these. Also, the mugs are wide so when we pour our favorite drink in one, we are sure to get a good amount which amounts to ounces in every mug. 

If I have not convinced you enough about the Stacking Mug Set and how great they are, then here is a few more things from the company.
  • Lead free
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Microwave safe
  • Space saving
  • Colorful designs
  • Made of Stoneware
What are you waiting for go purchase your own set now. I know they will look great in your kitchen, office, coffee table, or wherever you have them.

Red Faced... a poem. (Mama Kat prompt inspired)

Red Faced
by MR/aka Naila Moon
All rights reserved 2015

Gently I looked out my window onto the horizon.

There I saw her,
hair dirty,
clothes unkempt,
and holes in her blue jean pockets.

She was just a wisp of a thing.
She moved slowly.
the world was bearing down on her shoulders.

I watched her.
Children ran by,
cars avoided her,
and people walked by
not noticing.

Or did they?

I did,
and my face went red,
the heat bellowing,
to the depths
of my soul.

It hurt me to know
that this woman,
this lost soul,
was looking for food,
in my garbage container
just outside my window.

It hurt me to know
that she just wanted someone
to see her,
to notice her,
as they ran by,
not caring,

I did.
I cared.

But by the time I took
she was gone.

Life had moved on
for her.

For me,
time stood still
for a moment.

Once again,
my face went red,
as I realized,
I have a good life.
