Poker tables and chips direct

The following is a paid review for ReviewMe.

If you’re serious about your poker, buying a poker tables from CardroomSupply.com may be the right way to go. Free shipping on purchases over $100 is a boon considering how much is costs to ship tables and chairs of any kind. (Returned orders are subject to a 15% restocking fee.) Tables start at around $500, but the better ones go for $2000 or more. Poker table and chip set combos can be bought for people on a budget or who want to go from nothing to something in one fell swoop. This three-table and poker chip set, for example, would be of great use to group gatherings and class/school parties.

CardroomSupply.com accepts all major credit cards and Paypal and is rated 5 out of 5 stars on Yahoo!Shopping for superior service. They also offer table tops, three-in-one tables, gaming chairs (separate from the table/chair sets), playing cards, tournament timers, drop boxes, and more. Subscribe to their newsletter for new products, discount coupons, and general news in your email every month. They offer 31 tips for winning Texas Holdem, including: 3.

Good luck!

*sigh* Orlando…

And no, unfortunately, I don’t mean Orlando Bloom. But Vacation homes in Orlando, Florida, may be just as hot (LOL). Orlando (the city) houses Disney World and 51 other theme parks–one for each week of the year–you certainly won’t get bored. If that’s not enough, the city also boasts other attractions–beaches, resorts, and golf courses among them–and dinner shows for the more adult at heart. Vacationing in Orlando can mean lots of family fun or wet-and-wild spring break flings, depending on your reasons for going there! In some places, these two worlds overlap, so keep a sharp eye on your kids unless you know you’re in a kid-friendly area. Other than that, you can have experiences to last a lifetime in Orlando with OrlandoVacation.com.


Okay, so I know it sounds too good to be true (and if they–meaning anyone–ask[s] for your credit card information to “verify” something, it probably is), but I went to the site and give it my wary seal of approval. Be on your toes, as usual, but don’t let the “FREE STUFF” motif scare you off just yet. Here’s why…

Bid4prizes.com offers some hefty prizes for bidding. Prizes are free–if your bid is the lowest unique bid when the bidding ends. It works like this: the prize (say, a BMW… which is an actual prize, by the way) starts out bidding at 1¢. Let’s say you bid 1¢. If, when the bidding ends, no one else has also bid 1¢, you win the prize. But, if something has also bid 1¢, that amount is no longer unique and the new lowest unique bid is 2¢. If only one person bids 2¢, then they win the prize, but if more than one person does, the new lowest unique bid is 3¢… and so on and so on.

Seems like a cool idea, huh? Head on over and bid your heart out… cautiously, of course. Also, a side note: you need a cell phone to participate. See the website for further details.

More flip-flops than you can shake a stick at.

The following is a paid advertisement/editorial for ReviewMe.

Active Sandals, where you can get Chaco, Rainbow, Birkenstock, Crocs, and Reef Sandals online (among others), bills itself as “the largest sandal retailer in the world!” The exclamation point is theirs, not mine. I’m not too keen on buying $50 flip-flops unless they’re going to last me the rest of my life, but these guys seem legitimate. (And yes, they sell Keens, too; the pun was unintended.) I haven’t actually purchased anything from them (I already have a lovely pair of Speedo flip-flops that’ve lasted me a long time and show no signs of crapping out now), but free shipping is offered on all orders over $75… which won’t be hard since most pairs cost somewhere in the vicinity of $35-$65. However, right now they’re having a huge clearance event, so go have a look-see if you’re interested.

Active Sandals is a top rated Yahoo! store (5 out of 5 stars) for customer service. The store recently began selling “casual lifestyle apparel” also, so you can buy a whole new wardrobe there if you’re so inclined. All of the women’s jeans are tight-fitting and all types of jeans are at least$125 (whee! free shipping!). The t-shirts are more reasonably priced, and the Junkfood shirts are currently on sale. If you’re on a budget (and who isn’t?), you can search by price–from “Less than $20” to “$75 and Up.” If you’re lucky and money is no question, have fun getting ready for summer!

Botox vs. Natural Aging

This is a sponsored post for botox San Diego and Puremed Spas.

Puremed Spa is a leading (they say the leading, but I’ll let you decide for yourselves) day spa servicing California, Nevada, and other parts of North America. Specializing in botox treatments and botox injections along with a wide array of beauty services, professionals at Puremed Spa have performed hundreds of thousands of treatments.

People age; it’s a fact of life. I’m against botox for one primary reason, although I’m not going to stop anyone from having the procedure. Botox paralyzes facial muscles to diminish wrinkles–like crow’s feet and laugh lines. Why would anyone want to take those features away from his/her face? Wrinkles give character. People age! Let us age gracefully rather than pre-preserving ourselves.
