If you ever get a chance to see Milwaukee from the water...do it! I don't know what it is about the water but everything looks beautiful when you're on the water. I took these over the weekend and just looking at them calms me. We have a beautiful city enjoy it and enjoy what's left of summer:)
Even though allergy season is here, I have to say, I've been feeling great! I used to suffer with all the symtoms, red, itchy, watery eyes. I always looked like I wasnt feeling well. It wasnt until I discovered Visine A eyedrops at Walgreens .Now I feel like I'm telling everyone to dicover Visine A eyedrops too! I'm sure after the winter we had, you want to get out and enjoy the outdoors this spring. So, if you suffer from allergies, do what I did, pick up Visine A eyedrops. Don't worr,y you can thank me later when you're outside doing the things you love to do, without the suffering. Have a great spring and get back to noemal with Visine A eyedrops!
What an amazing author and person Maya Angelou was. She inspired me when she spoke. One of my favorite quotes from her was, "If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude about it." She will be missed...R.I.P.
We have survived through a long cold winter and finally this weekend, a 3 day weekend! So, I'm sure you have checked the weather and you know it's going to be nice and you're going to want to be outside. I'm sure you would love to work in your yard, ride your bike, take a long walk, but it's those allergies that keep you from just being normal. Well, I'm here to tell you I have a simple fix. It's Visine A eye drops and you can find it in the eye care isle of Walgreens. There is no reason for you NOT to get outside and enjoy the beautiful long weekend. Avoid the ichy, watery, red eyes with Visine A eye drops and enjoy your weekend!
Also, remember those who have made sacrifices for our freedom! GOD BLESS THE U.S.A.
I feel like the expert on allergies now that I've dicovered Visine A eye drops at Walgreens. Over the weekend I went out with one of my neighbors and she was complaining about her allergies. I asked her what here symptoms were and she told me her eyes are very itchey and watery. Well, of course I had to tell her about Visine A eye drops and how it helped me with the same syptoms. I told her to try i, especially this week when the pollen count is high...
So as you can see the next few days if you have allergies, you are going to feel terrible. So, avoid feeling bad and get back to normal with Visine A eye drops and enjoy all thye nice weather heading our way in SE Wisconsin!
So unless you have been living under a rock, you've heard about the drama between Jay-z and Beyonce's sister. They got into a physical altercation in an elevator which was all caught on tape. I understand they are celebrities but they were in an ELEVATOR being recorded while having a private moment between family. We all have crazy things happen in our family but people are now going out of their way to record everything for money. It's just sad to me that society cares so much to see other peoples low points. If people would stop buying these tablost their would be no tabloid business. I'm in the media and I hate sometimes that I have to stay on top of this stuff that I don't care about. Anyway, I just think we should love and support more rather than trying to find fault.
What a great Mothers Day weekend! Not only was the weather fantastic but Visine A eye drops helped me enjoy everything I love to do out side! I put out the patio furniture, cleaned out my garage, cleaned my boat but before I did all that, I put one drop of Visine A eye drops in each eye and I got the relief I needed. It took away my symptoms, red, itchy, watery eyes and I was able to enjoy the weekend. So, if you suffer from allergies, don't suffer anymore. Head to the eye care isle at Walgreens and pick up Visine A eye drops and get back to normal. #AD
Ok, over the weekend I was in Nashville and as you can see from my screen shot it, they had beautiful weather! However, if you are a person you gets allergies, weather like this can trigger some pretty bad allergies like, itchy red watery eyes. In fact, you look sick and most of the time just want to stay inside because you feel terrible. Well, we can't do that, we stayed in enough this winter. So, here is the secret...Visine A eye drops! I found Visine A in the eye care isle at Walgreens and it works! This is the reason I'm telling you about it. Soon we will have the same weather as Nashville and you want to get back to normal and get out and enjoy the outdoor activities you like to do. So take my advice and try Visine A eye drops...get back to normal!
I know we are all very excited to see everything turning green. Things are growing fast like grass, weeds and trees HOWEVER, when that happens the pollen count goes up and down. Today while I'm writing this post the pollen count is moderate but tomorrow it's suppose to be high. Although, I love the fact that spring is here and summer is coming soon I'm NOT looking forward to allergies. It's the watery eyes, the ichyness and you always look like your sick...ugh!
It wasn't until I walked down the eye care isle at Walgreens when I came across Visine A eye drops. Since I've started putting a drop in each eye, my symptoms have cleared up! That makes Jojo very happy. So, I now can enjoy the beautiful green grass below with Visine A eye drops...GET BACK TO NORMAL!
Oh yes he did.
At the VMA's last night, Kanye West announced - after a four-hour speech (okay, maybe it wasn't that long, but it sure felt like it was!) - that he was running for president in 2020.
Sadly, he means President of the United States.
He dropped the mic right after saying that and walked off stage to a cheering crowd.
It's not clear whether they were cheering the announcement, or the fact that he was finally done talking.
I'm thinking the latter...
Bitch Slap at the VMA Corral
You never know what you're going to get when Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus are in the same room.
What you got last night at the VMAs was fireworks!
Nicki was on stage, accepting her award for "Anaconda" as Best Hip Hop Video.
She thanked everyone who made it possible, the way you do at awards shows.
And then she laid into Miley Cyrus, who had some particulary unflattering things to say about Nicki in a previous interview.
Miley's response was pretty much "that's the way it goes in this industry."
And that just made Nicki madder.
Watch the video...
Yup, Almost Naked
Miley Cyrus told a guy on the street during a fake interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week that she would be hosting MTV's Video Music Awards in the nude.
And judging from the stuff done leading up to the show itself, it looks like she came pretty close to making that promise a reality.
I don't know. Maybe it's just bad luck they scheduled the VMA's on Miley's laundry day?

OMG! You 2?
So, Amber Rose and Blac Chyna showed up at MTV's Video Music Awards last night wearing the same outfit.
I mean, seriously, they couldn't have checked in with each other?
Okay, turn out, they did. This was a coordinated effort.
Same material, different dresses, both sporting words and phrases that people - Amber and Blac would call them "haters" - have used when describing them.
"Whore," "Stripper," "Bitch," "Gold Digger" - things like that.
Some are calling it a blow for feminism.
Others are thinking they were mugged by a graffiti artist.
What do you think?
#VMAs: So is this a feminist statement on @Blacchyna & @DaRealAmberRose or seriously not? pic.twitter.com/ClkdO6ZHYL

You're already having a blast at Billy Joel's concert at Wrigley Field in Chicago.
Imagine how much more fun it would be if Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer jumped onto Billy's piano and started dancing?
That's exactly what happened Thursday night.
They danced to "Uptown Girl," something that Amy did at the end of Trainwreck, dancing with the New York Knicks cheerleaders.
One of these days, I'll get around to seeing that movie.
Meanwhile, I've got this.
Can Serena Grand Slam It?
The US Open in tennis gets underway today, and all eyes are on Serena Williams.
She's already won the Australian Open, the French Open and Wimbledon this year.
She's the number one seed at the US Open, and if she wins this tournament, she'll pull off a Grand Slam, making her the first woman to achieve that since Steffi Graf did it in 1988.
It would be fun to see her do it, don't you think?
To get you in the spirit, check out this video that the folks at American Express put together to celebrate the US Open.
They call it Rally on the River. It involves tennis, but other than that, I have no idea what it's about.
It is fun to watch, though, don't you think?
Just when you think you've seen it all, Kim Kardashian hits you over the head.
This time, she posted a picture to the Internet of her boobs - no worries, they're covered by a bikini.
It's the picture's caption that has everyone buzzing.
Two baby bottle emojis.
Okay, Kim, I think we get it.

"I Wanna Be Trump's Running Mate"
The folks at TMZ Sports caught up with currently-disgraced former WWE champion Hulk Hogan on the streets of New York and asked him a very important question.
Who among the list of presidential possibilities would he like to face inside a wrestling ring?
Hulk flipped that question over and answered one of his own.
He wants to be Donald Trump's running mate.
It's not clear if he was serious or just goofing around. Which so far has been the tone of a lot of presidential campaigns, so the Hulkster could fit right in.
Yeah, That's Not a Dolphin
Seems like this has been the Summer of the Shark.
Another shark attack to report - no one hurt, so no worries there.
A woman was surfing in Morro Bay, north of Santa Barbara in California, when she looked into the water under her board and spotted a gray shadow.
She thought it was a dolphin - until it started coming at her.
Turns out it was a six-foot Great White, and it took a pretty good-sized chunk out of her board as she swam away.
Watch the story from a local news affiliate.
I'm pretty sure I'd take that as a sign to stay out of the water for a while. And by "for a while," I mean "forever."
Limp and Yellowing Leaves on African Violets
Melinda's Blog is brought to you by American Transmission Company.
Warm the water and eliminate the salt if your African violet has limp leaves that eventually yellow and drop off.
Use room temperature water to avoid cold damage to the leaves. Then check for a white crusty substance on the soil surface or plant container. This salt buildup is from the minerals in the water and fertilizer. African violet leaves are damaged and often drop when they come in contact with this material. Scrape off the crusty white substance. Then water the soil thoroughly with room temperature water. Allow the excess water to drain from the pot. Repeat this several times at 20 minute intervals. Leaching the soil like this will help wash any excess salts out of the soil.
Some growers cover the rim of the pot with foil or a similar material to protect the petioles from the salt laden container rim. Others raise their plants in plastic or ceramic pots, with drainage holes, to avoid this problem.
A bit more information: Once you correct this problem you may want to start more plants. African violets can be started from just a single healthy leaf. Listen to my audio tip for more details.
