PEAG: Scrabble Word for Today

I played scrabble every Tuesday night for a game or 2. It depends if I am working early morning or I got tired for the day. I enjoyed every game. I always win every time I played. I don't know why, but my playmates found me good in scrabble. Sorry about bragging but that it is the truth. Today, I did not win. Hahaha! But I learned something new. Some of my friends challenged that word but it's good that it was in the dictionary. I was just making a wild guess! As we learned the meaning, one of them said, it like an american Indian money.


It is a noun meaning wampum. Wampum from dictionary.com –noun
Also called peagseawansewan. cylindrical beads madefrom shells, pierced and strung, used by North AmericanIndians as a medium of exchange, for ornaments, and forceremonial and sometimes spiritual purposes, especially suchbeads when white but also including the more valuableblack or dark-purple varieties.
Informal money.

We use this kind of scrabble rotating board and we are all loving it!

Stargate Universe Soars above other Science Fiction Shows

Contribution by German Flowers

I enjoy watching Stargate Universe and I am glad it is back. Stargate Universe is similar to the wildly popular shows Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis in some ways, but is very much its own show. For those who know of the other two series but not Stargate Universe the similarity to the other shows is that as the name infers there is a stargate, device that travels between worlds, on this show. That is where the similarities end.
The cast of Stargate Universe is stuck on a space ship, named Destiny, made by the ancients. This ship is traveling though space countless light-years from earth toward the outside side of the Universe . To complicate matters they are two far from earth to dial home and have very limited control of the ship. Stargate Universe is more character driven than the previous Stargates were. The captain is incompetent and a jar head, but is still in charge. Rush the science offer despises the captain and wants to be in charge but they need one another. Other smaller characters are always falling in love or in fights making for drama. I think this show has something for everyone. This show has the fighting and space travel for the guys and the emotional story that keeps my wife into it. I look forward to watching the new episode of Stargate Universe every week on my http://www.expertsatellite.com tv.

Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products Infants Pain Reliever

This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.


I need to tell you about my experience at Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products  and their infant liquid pain reliever for infants. I just tried it for Tommy and I am a believer. As a young adult with four children our family does have our share of pain: My husband is no exception, he has bad days when I drag out the Walgreens Extra strength pain reliever. And me , I borrow my mother-in-law's Arthritis pain med. She lives in the apartment attached to our house.
Even the infant, our newest just a year old gets the pharmacist's help at Walgreens. It is the latest of the Walgreens brand health and wellness products that I use. I save more than 2 dollars too. 
I was always familiar with Walgreens other pain relief products but this give me the most satisfaction help for my baby. They have an infant liquid pain reliever. The pharmacist will tell you the exact dose to give your precious very young one. My two who are 3 and 11 get regular strength Walgreens brand health and wellness pain reliever. 
You know when Tylenol was talked of the market, one of the other big retailers jacked up their prices so much. Even now, at my Walgreens I save TWO DOLLARS on every bottle of regular strength. 
I am gushing about this because is like everything else on my blog: I use it and my friends try things I try and we talk and we know the differences. I know that at Walgreens there is always the assurance that anything I do not like, I can return for a full refund. And the active ingredient is the same as the 2 dollar a bottle more brand.
