Coca Cola

10 Uses For Coca Cola – Coke Ain’t Just For Drinking Anymore

Coca Cola…..ain’t just for drinking ANYMORE!

Do you like the new slogan? Wonder if Coke people do?……Oh, well……

Joking aside……I am a COCA COLA lover…..there you have it.

 Coca Cola

I collect Coca Cola memorabilia and I enjoy refreshing glass of diet Coca Cola once in awhile……and Diet Coke Floats….all summer long.

For years I’ve been hearing from people using Coca Cola for things other then drinking.

Slowly I have been putting different uses of Coca Cola to the test.

Who knew that Coca Cola can be so useful? I am starting to think that I should be using Coca Cola as an household product rather then refreshing drink.

I probably never stop the occasional Coca Cola drinking, but now I have new uses for my favorite beverage and actually questioning my drinking it a bit.

 Coca Cola

Did you know……..

  • Coca Cola can remove grease and blood stains from your clothing and fabrics – pour cola over the stain, let it sit for 5 minutes and wash as usual.
  • Coca Cola can prevent an Asthma attack – according to research the caffeine found in 2 – 120z cans of Coca Cola can prevent the onset of an Asthma attack.
  • Coca Cola can de-skunk your pet – pour and rub 1 can of cola into your pet’s fur, wait for 30 minutes and then shampoo and rinse your pet. Don’t use it on light colored fur animal cause the cola can cause staining.
  • Coca Cola can clean burnt bottoms of your pans – just let it soak for awhile and rinse as usual.
  • Coca Cola cleans smudges from sunglasses – pour few drops of cola onto a napkin and wipe the smudges or fingerprints right off. Then wipe with clean napkin dabbed in water to get rid of the coca cola residue.
  • Coca Cola can bring wilted grass back to life – in a spray bottle combine 1 can of cola, 1 cup of ammonia and 1/4 cup of dish soap. Spray the wilted and faded lawn spots and you’ll have perfect lawn in no time.

Results Of Google Smartphone Survey

Results Of Google Smartphone Survey

Results Of Google Smartphone Survey A few days ago Google released the findings of a smartphone-user survey conducted at the end of 2010 that they did in partnership with Ipsos OTX. The audience was comprised of 5,000 US adults who owned a smartphone and accessed the mobile internet.

The findings of the survey seemed to support previous surveys whose results highlighted the ever-growing usage and reliance people have on their smartphone.

After the findings were analyzed, Google identified three three major consumer usage patterns in the data:

Action-oriented Searchers

  • 9 out of 10 mobile search users have “taken action as a result of a mobile search, with over half leading to a purchase

Local Information Seekers

  • 95% of smartphone users have looked for local information
  • 61% call a business
  • 59% visit a business
  • 44% make a purchase
  • 88% of local information seekers take action within a day

Purchase-driven Shoppers

  • 79% use their smartphones to help with shopping
  • 70% use their smartphones while in a store
  • 74% of smartphone shoppers wind up making a purchase
  • Smartphone shoppers “spent a median of $300 on purchases made via their smartphones.

Results Of Google Smartphone SurveyThere’s No Place Like Home

The survey also revealed smartphone users use their phones in the comfort of their home with 93% saying they use their smartphone while at home. Furthermore, 39% said they have used their smartphones while going to the bathroom (perhaps a little too much information) and nearly 20% would, if given the choice, would rather have their smartphone than cable TV.

Additional Findings

  • 72% use their smartphone “while consuming other media” including one-third who do so while watching TV
  • 77% of smartphone owners use mobile search with News (57%) and Dining (51%) the most popular searches being conducted
  • 82% notice mobile ads, in particular mobile display ads and a third notice mobile search ads
  • Nearly 50% who see a mobile ad take action, with 35% visiting a website & 49% making an actual purchase

One of the most interesting things that came out of this study was the fact that a little over 70% of smartphone users conducted searches on their phones after exposure to an ad, be it traditional, online or mobile ad.

Think about that… even AFTER seeing a print ad or online ad, nearly 3/4 of people used their smartphone to conduct their search.

Results Of Google Smartphone Survey

In Closing

Here’s what’s written verbatim on the googlemobileads.blogspot.com posting about this very topic… I could not have said it better myself so I figured, why try? I just highlighted a couple key points.

“The findings of the study have strong implications for businesses and mobile advertisers. Make sure you can be found via mobile search as consumers regularly use their phones to find and act on information. Incorporate location based products and services and make it easy for mobile customers to reach you because local information seeking is common among smartphone users. Develop a comprehensive cross-channel strategy as mobile shoppers use their phones in-store, online and via mobile website and apps to research and make purchase decisions. Last, implement an integrated marketing strategy with mobile advertising that takes advantage of the knowledge that people are using their smartphones while consuming other media and are influenced by it.”

Healthy Easter Egg Hunt

Healthy Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Egg Hunt or as I used to call it “Easter Chocolate Overload”.

What child doesn’t like or look forward good old-fashioned Easter Egg Hunt?

My children are not exception. Weeks before Easter all they can talk about is EASTER EGG HUNT.

Healthy Easter Egg HuntEven the older one who’s know a teenager.

Easter Egg Hunt in our house is little different then the average Easter Egg Hunts around the country.

It is a combination of fun, exercise, thinking, team work, strategy planning and it takes quite a long time. Enough time for me to prepare EASTER Brunch for all the hungry treasure hunters.

Our Easter Egg Hunt is fun and exciting Easter Treasure Hunt…….

I introduced Easter Treasure Hunt to my kids few years ago after my older son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and we had to change lots of our family traditions.

As a family we had to pull together and come up with new and healthier ways to celebrate certain holidays and make new traditions.

So given the tons and tons of chocolate and sweets associated with traditional Easter Egg Hunt the Easter Egg Hunt had to be one of the traditions we changed. The usual hunt for chocolate and candy filled eggs turned into fun and exciting Easter Treasure Hunt.

Healthy Easter Egg HuntTo give you a little idea about our Easter Egg Hunt turn Easter Treasure Hunt…….

The children are hunting for EASTER EGGS which contain clues instead of chocolate and jelly beans. They need to follow all the clues in proper order to find the hidden treasure box. Along the way they are given certain physical and fun challenges to fulfill (according to age) and an opportunity to work together as a team.

The hidden treasure box contains little bags of candy (it is Easter after all) for each child and new outdoor toys they can use in the upcoming months like bubbles, balls, skipping rope, beach toys, badminton, sand toys.

Here is how it works:

#1. Place clues in 20 empty plastic Easter egg shells.
#2. Keep the first egg with the first clue to give to the kids to start the treasure hunt.
#3. Hide the eggs at the appropriate spots for children to find after following the clue from the previous egg.
#4. The last egg will contain a clue to help the kids locate the hidden treasure.

Healthy Easter Egg HuntDon’t forget to number the eggs so the kids are looking for the right clues in a right order.

You can use more or less clues. It is up to you how big or small you want your Easter Egg Hunt be.
My clues also include little physical activity like jumping jacks,two-legged race.

I used to do this only with my two boys, but two years ago we were joined by my best friend’s family and my little nephews.

As much fun my boys had hunting for treasure the previous years nothing compared to how much fun they had doing it in a group of 7 kids ages 2 to 16.

They had a blast and everybody is looking forward to this year’s Easter Egg Hunt with a Healthy Twist. We are adding 4 more children to our group of treasure hunters….this thing is getting HUGE and I couldn’t be happier.

Nobody will be missing Easter chocolate and candy. They will be having fun working together and hunting for treasure.

Hillary Clinton’

Why Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Aspirations Aren’t Dead Yet

Hillary Clinton’ Who would take Hillary Clinton seriously as a presidential candidate? With each new day comes yet another revelation about the secrets she and Bill Clinton have been hiding. Whether it’s her private email server when she was Secretary of State or the vast sums of money she’s washed through the Clinton Foundation to her lies about Benghazi, she has no credibility.

And yet “Hillary 2016” isn’t dead.

Why?

Quite simply, the American press is so dishonest that they simply refuse to treat her the way they would anybody else in her circumstances. Liberals loathe her and yet they are loathe to decry her simply because they want to retain the White House so badly – and at any cost – that they will ignore her many flaws.

Hillary Clinton’This is good news for Americans.

Hillary has pressure only from her Left in the form of self-proclaimed “Socialist” Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) and ex-Maryland governor Martin O’Malley (who made a mess of Maryland)

The longer her candidacy continues, the more she hurts the Democratic party. This didn’t affect them the last time because America was coming off of eight years of a Republican president and an unpopular war, but these conditions don’t exist this time.

So what is going to happen? Clinton will inevitably self destruct – just as she did last time – and someone else (perhaps O’Malley, perhaps someone else) will swoop in and be the “fresh” candidate and secure the nomination.

Of course, this entire charade would be over if the press would simply do their job.
