While its designed to encourage you to make Father's Day cards, there are no limits to the designs you can choose. I made a couple of blank-on-the-inside cards with some of my photos so I can have a couple of cards in reserve for emergencies.

I expect my summer will be spent on my feet -- at the beach, chasing after kids; at the amusement park, chasing after kids; on my bike, chasing after kids.
So I imagine some Flexitol for feet will come in handy.
Go here and on the left side of the page click on "request sample" to get yours.
If you're in the market for a new camera, here's one for you: Digital Concepts 7.1 megapixel camera. Usually priced at about $100, you can get one for $29.99 for the next eight-and-a-half hours here.
The camera (yes, it is pink) supports up to a 4 GB memory card.
I have a good camera. But I've been looking for one I could throw in my bag when I go to the beach or pool, something inexpensive that I wouldn't really care too much about if it got wet. This looks like just the thing.

I have a nostalgic love of Friendly's -- it was the place where we all hung out in high school, and the place where my fiance and I had our first dates decades ago. So I've got Saturday, June 5 circled on the calendar to be sure we make it to are closest Friendly's for free ice cream day. We'll take the family -- myself, my fiance and our seven kids. I hope they are ready for us!!
Customers can each get one scoop for free. Go here to find your closest restaurant.
Deodorant is one of the things I like to stock up on when I see it at a good price -- or better yet, free. I never seem to realize mine is running out until it's empty, so it's great to have some stockpiled under the sink. Besides, it's not like it expires.
And I even love the sample sizes of this one, because they typically come with enough product to last you through several trips (I like packing the smaller ones when I travel).
Go here to sign up for your sample size of the new Dove Ultimate Beauty Care deodorant through Walmart. Your sample should arrive in about four weeks.

I'm starting to wonder when the Facebook perks are going to dry out. I mean, it's obvious to me that companies are offering great coupons to people who "like" them in an effort to build up their fan base. And here's another one:
Go over to the Libby's Table page here and click "like." Then click on the "Libby's Table" tab and fill out the form for your coupon for a free can of vegetables.
