WaterWipes Review

I have been using WaterWipes for the past few weeks. These are the best wipes! They aren't too big or too small, they are the perfect size for getting the job done! I love that they are chemical free and contain almost pure water (99.9%) and a teeny bit of grapefruit seed extract (0.1%). I checked out the benefits of the grapefuit seed extract and found out that it's truly amazing stuff, it's an antimicrobial that kills bacterial, viral and fungal microbes, naturally! Who knew?! And the water that is used is pure Irish water. WaterWipes are made by a premier European company. I think WaterWipes, are a safer, natural option for your baby's bum and yours too! Yes, I tried them on myself to see how they felt. They were so soft, and very durable, they didn't fall apart. I received WaterWipes to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own. I will definitely continue to use WaterWipes and recommend you give them a try, I think you'll love them!

How to reduce the number of snail mail unsolicited credit and insurance offers

How to reduce the number of snail mail unsolicited credit and insurance offers

Mail Call: Bills, a letter from your Aunt Mary, a circular from a local department store, your monthly bank statement, and an offer for a new credit card that says you've been "prescreened" or "prequalified."

A "prescreened" offer of credit? What's that?

Many companies that solicit new credit card accounts and insurance policies use prescreening to identify potential customers for the products they offer. Prescreened offers — sometimes called "preapproved" offers — are based on information in your credit report that indicates you meet criteria set by the offeror. Usually, prescreened solicitations come via mail, but you also may get them in a phone call or in an email.

How does prescreening work?

Prescreening works in one of two ways:

Can prescreening hurt my credit report or credit score?

No. There will be "inquiries" on your credit report showing which companies obtained your information for prescreening, but those inquiries will not have a negative effect on your credit report or credit score.

Can I reduce the number of unsolicited credit and insurance offers I get?

If you decide that you don't want to receive prescreened offers of credit and insurance, you have two choices: You can opt out of receiving them for five years or opt out of receiving them permanently. 
To opt out for five years: Call toll-free 1-888-5-OPT-OUT (1-888-567-8688) or visit The phone number and website are operated by the major consumer reporting companies.
To opt out permanently: You may begin the permanent Opt-Out process online at To complete your request, you must return the signed Permanent Opt-Out Election form, which will be provided after you initiate your online request.
When you call or visit the website, you'll be asked to provide certain personal information, including your home telephone number, name, Social Security number, and date of birth. The information you provide is confidential and will be used only to process your request to opt out.
If you don't have access to the Internet, you may send a written request to permanently opt out to each of the major consumer reporting companies. Make sure your request includes your home telephone number, name, Social Security number, and date of birth. 
Opt Out
P.O. Box 919
Allen, TX 75013

Name Removal Option
P.O. Box 505
Woodlyn, PA 19094 

Equifax, Inc.
P.O. Box 740123
Atlanta, GA 30374-0123

Innovis Consumer Assistance
P.O. Box 495
Pittsburgh, PA 15230-0495

Why would someone opt out — or not?

Some people prefer not to receive these kinds of offers in the mail, especially if they are not in the market for a new credit card or insurance policy. They may prefer to opt out to limit access to their credit report information for credit and insurance solicitations, or to reduce some mailbox "clutter." However, some companies send offers that are not based on prescreening, and your federal opt-out right will not stop those kinds of solicitations.
As you consider opting out, you should know that prescreened offers can provide many benefits, especially if you are in the market for a credit card or insurance. Prescreened offers can help you learn about what's available, compare costs, and find the best product for your needs. Because you are pre-selected to receive the offer, you can be turned down only under limited circumstances. The terms of prescreened offers also may be more favorable than those that are available to the general public. In fact, some credit card or insurance products may be available only through prescreened offers. 

Does opting out hurt my credit score?

Removing your name from prescreened lists has no effect on your ability to apply for or obtain credit or insurance. 

If I decide to opt out, how long will it be before I stop getting prescreened offers?

Requests to opt out are processed within five days, but it may take up to 60 days before you stop receiving prescreened offers.

What if I opt out and then change my mind?

You can use the same toll-free telephone number or website to opt back in.

Will calling 1-888-5-OPTOUT or visiting stop all unsolicited offers of credit and insurance?

Calling the opt-out line or visiting the website will stop the prescreened solicitations that are based on lists from the major consumer reporting companies. You may continue to get solicitations for credit and insurance based on lists from other sources. For example, opting out won't end solicitations from local merchants, religious and charitable associations, professional and alumni associations, and companies with which you already conduct business. To stop mail from groups like these — as well as mail addressed to "occupant" or "resident" — you must contact each source directly.

Review: Aisoul Wi-Fi Home Security Camera System App Remote View 1080P HD Wireless IP Cameras Motion Detection

"This is one of the coolest things ever!  you can do so many things with it," words spoken by my 25 year old!  You can set the date and time.  There's a bar on top, that when you push it, it speaks the time.  This would be good if you are in bed and wondering what the time is. I also, used the alarm on the clock and it makes nature sounds when it goes off.  

Loading the app on to my phone was pretty easy; it took about 15 minutes. The picture is clear and you can zoom in and out.  The motion detector makes a sound on my phone every time something moves. 

Primarily, I plan to use this in my garage.  We use our garage instead of the front door so there are people coming in and out all the time.  With all the tools and such in the garage, I won't have to worry about if things are going missing or not.

I received this Aisoul Wi-Fi Home Security Camera System App Remote View 1080P HD Wireless IP Cameras Motion Detection at a reduced price in return for my 100 % unbiased opinion.

HALLELUJAH ~ An Ah-Hah Moment.

I learned something new this morning.
(Sorry this is so long, but I felt the need to share)

I've heard the song HALLELUJAH several ways, "the Christian version", "the Christmas version", and Leonard Cohen's "original version". I never liked the original, that's because I didn't understand what Leonard Cohen was trying to say. This is part of an interview John McKenna did with him where he explains it.

Leonard Cohen was born into a Jewish family in Montreal in 1935 [actually, 1934]. Yet his influences come also from the Catholic and Protestant communities of that city. And perhaps its that cosmopolitan background that gives him an intriguing angle, particularly on biblical history. In the song Hallelujah, he draws on a wonderfully and subversively passionate passage in the second book of Samuel. It happened towards evening when David had risen from his couch and was strolling on the palace roof that he saw from the roof a woman bathing. The woman was very beautiful. David made enquiries about this woman and was told 'why that is Bethsheba, Allion's daughter, the wife of Uriah the Hittite.' Then David sent messengers and had her brought. She came to him and he slept with her. Now she had just purified herself from her courses. She then went home again. The woman conceived and sent word to David - 'I am with child'.
In the song there's the baffled king, David, and there's the baffled singer, Leonard Cohen, in search of the lost chord that certainly pleased the lord and might possibly please the woman. And there's the original story too, reduced now to the domestic and physical situation that it was and always is. Bethsheba may have broken the throne, but she also tied David to a kitchen chair. Delilah did something similar. There's more to be learned from the bible than God's dealing with the human race. There's also the dealings of women with men. There's the hard fact that nothing can be reconciled - at least not here.
LC: Finally there's no conflict between things, finally everything is reconciled but not where we live. This world is full of conflicts and full of things that cannot be reconciled but there are moments when we can transcend the dualistic system and reconcile and embrace the whole mess and that's what I mean by Hallelujah. That regardless of what the impossibility of the situation is, there is a moment when you open your mouth and you throw open your arms and you embrace the thing and you just say 'Hallelujah! Blessed is the name.' And you can't reconcile it in any other way except in that position of total surrender, total affirmation.
JM: For those who'd label Leonard Cohen a blind pessimist, there's the answer in the song Hallelujah. The blaze of light in every word - which word is unimportant. The belief that it doesn't matter if it all went wrong because he still can stand before the lord of song. The acceptance that in being able to change nothing we reach an understanding and can, like David, say 'Hallelujah!'
LC : That's what it's all about. It says that none of this - you're not going to be able to work this thing out - you're not going to be able to set - this realm does not admit to revolution - there's no solution to this mess. The only moment that you can live here comfortably in these absolutely irreconcilable conflicts is in this moment when you embrace it all and you say 'Look, I don't understand a f****** thing at all - Hallelujah! That's the only moment that we live here fully as human beings.
JM:.....There's Leonard Cohen, acknowledging that each of us is torn by what we've done and can't undo.
Wow, hearing his explanation changes everything. Now I get it. Hallelujah!
Here are the lyrics;
Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah


Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

PS (I didn't include a link to the song because Leonard Cohen has added and subtracted verses over the years and so has many other people).
