Fuse Plus You Car Charger for the Kindle and Other Devices - Review

I received a Heavy Duty Micro USB Car Charger with 12 Foot Cord from FusePlusYou.com.


When I got my Kindle last month, I realized that I had no way to take it with me in the car when I go places.  It's not often that I want to bring it with me, but I will when we head out to our daughter's wedding in a few days.  I was just beginning me search when I was contacted by Fuse to review one of their products.


How fortunate I was to be able to review for you the Heavy Duty Micro USB Car Charger with 12 Foot Cord.  It is a high-output Micro USB Charger that charges my Kindle lightning fast in the car.  It conveniently plugs into our 12v cigarette lighter in the car.  The coiled cord does need a stretch a bit, but it is the full 12 feet as promised.


This Heavy Duty Charger has a silicone sleeve around the charger protects it from occasional bumps and drops that may happen, but that won't be often.  The silicone sleeve also has an anti-slip grip.


Another handy addition to this charger is the extra USB charger.  This allows for another device to be charged at the same time - like my son's music player.


I could not be more pleased with this Car Charger from fuse.  It really does what it was advertised to do.  Would you like to get your own Heavy Duty Micro USB Car Charger with 12 Foot Cord for your Kindle or some other device that works on the same plug?  The price for this super fast charger is only $24.99.  If you decide to buy more than $30 at Fuse, you receive Free Shipping.

I Keep My Kindle Fire Fully Protected with an OtterBox Defender Series Case - Review & Giveaway - ends 7/20 US

I received an Kindle Fire HD Defender Case from OtterBox for this review. 



I just love the Kindle Fire that I won in May!  It is wonderful.  I have never had the pleasure of apps or reading books on an eReader.  Such a pleasure!  Even though I do have a protection plan, I want to keep my Kindle from getting broken.  I also wanted to keep it protected from dust, which is a constant hindrance in the desert.   I needed the best cover ever made, so I turned to OtterBox.


OtterBox genuinely cares for our portable electronics.  They have quite a selection of cases to heavily protect all of our devices.  The Defender Case for the Kindle HD 7 is not exception when it comes to quality.  This case is built in three layers.  The first layer is a two-piece inner shell that is built from high-impact polycarbonate and includes a built-in screen protector.  The HD display screen protector lets you play all the games you like as if there were no cover over it at all. 


There is an outer silicone slipcover that wraps around the inner shell to absorb impacts from bumps and drops.  There are silicone plugs that cover the charging port and the headphone jacks, and they are fully accessible.  The on/off and volume buttons are covered, but so easy to use.  The speakers are protected, and all the sounds issues forth from them with full clarity.  The microphone and camera are fully accessible at all times (although I keep my camera covered when it's not in use).


I love the final component to the three layer protection: the outer shield.  Not only does this offer truly great protection when the Kindle is off, but it is also has a kick stank within. 


This Defender Series Kindle Fire HD 7 Case is the ultimate in protection.  I know that my Kindle will be protected from all the bumps and little drops that my family can dish out.  I know it is protected from the dust that this desert around me creates daily.  I highly recommend this case for your Kindle.  The price for a Kindle Fire HD 7 Case | Defender Series is only $69.95.  It comes in four different colors: Black; Papaya/White; Blue Sky/White; and Sour Apple Green/White.


There are virtually hundreds of covers available for all types of devices at OtterBox.  Besides the Defender Series that protects my Kindle, there are six other series of device protection that OtterBox currently offers.  OtterBox is the best choice when you want to protect your device to the max!  They have listened to their customers feedback, and have created a top quality line of device protection.

Shop OtterBox - They've Got Technology Covered!



With many thanks to OtterBox, one person will win an OtterBox Case of their Choice that is up to $100 in Value!  This giveaway will end on July 20, 2013, and is open to US residents only.

Relax with Soothing Sounds from a Tabletop Water Fountain - Review

I received a tabletop water fountain from The Soothing Company for this review.



There are just some days that I am totally wound up into knots.  If you have kids, even older ones like mine, sometimes the antics they do can just leave you so frustrated.  Or just every ordinary things finally get to you, and you just want to relax.  I wish I could get away and just get up to the mountains right now and find the nearest creek.  I could just park myself right next to that creek and just listen to the gurgling sounds of the water all day.  That sound can always ease my tension right away.  Well, right now, it's impossible to get away from this hot desert to get to the mountains.  Only one thing, if I can't go to a mountain creek, then I will bring the sweet sounds of that creek to me! 

Indeed, I have brought the sweet gurgling sounds of refreshing relaxing water into our home!  This Pouring Pot Table Top Water Fountain from The Soothing Company has been almost a life savor.  With our heat soaring into the 100's, all I have to do is sit in front of the water cooler, and turn this little tabletop fountain on.  Within minutes of listening to the soft sounds of the water pouring from the pot into the small bowl, I feel so much more relaxed.  


Because this fountain is gently lit with an underwater LED lights, it creates a soft ambiance at night.  I love falling asleep to it (we put it on a timer). 




This little fountain is made of durable poly-resin.  The size makes it perfect to place anywhere: 8"H x 10.6"W x 10.5"D.  While we use it exclusively indoors, it can be used outdoors as well.  While we have it settled in our bedroom, the Pouring Pot Table Top Water Fountain can be used anywhere you would like to hear the soothing sounds of water.  It's perfect for the living room, enclosed porch, dining room, or would be a charming addition to an office. 


My husband and I really enjoy this small addition in our home, and love listening to the sweet sounds of the gurgling water.  The Pouring Pot Table Top Water Fountain is very reasonably priced at only $40 with FREE Shipping!  This is really an awesome deal for hours of relaxation.

Wordless Wednesday - Heron Lost in the Desert - June 26, 2013


We have no idea why this young Great Blue Heron passed our way the other day.  We figured he came from Salton Sea on his way to Big Bear? Lake Arrowhead?  Definitely off on the wrong track.



According to my National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Birds Western Region, these birds like lakes, ponds, rivers, and marshes.  There are some about 50 miles west of us in Victorville, CA.  Maybe that was where he was heading.  But young herons, such as the one that passed over us, fly wide territories looking for any pond, even your fish pond in your backyard, that has a supply of fish.
