All opinions expressed are those of the reviewer and honest in nature. Richard and Jake both love blended margaritas - without alcohol of course. Jake's such a fan that we actually put together a margarita gift box last Christmas complete with mixer, salt, and glasses. That's why I was super excited to learn that Old Orchard Brands now has a blend and serve line of frozen mixers with flavors including Margarita, Pina Colada, and Strawberry Daiquiri. I wanted to review them and share my findings, but Richard hasn't been able to find them at the store yet. As soon as he does, I'll be giving them a try with the exception of Pina Colada - because coconut, eww. The new Old Orchard Frozen Mixers are available at Walmart and other fine retailers starting in July. They are all sold in 12-ounce plastic cans for $1.98 each. When we drink Old … [Read more...]

Club 8 Casino Online – Spin to Win!

Aside from babysitting, I started working my first "real" job at Hardee's when I was 16. Since then, I've held many positions at various places around town including front desk clerk at a few hotels, cashier, even waitress and banquet server. I have to say though - considering the numerous jobs I've held - my favorite was as a casino slot attendant. I was in charge of fixing ticket or money jams, filling paper, as well as any number of machine related tasks. I also got drinks, watched chairs, and the best part was paying jackpots. People got so excited winning - even more so when the pot was large enough to blow all the bells and whistles and have an attendant come pay you cold, hard cash. I've always thought slot games were fun, but employees weren't allowed to play at the casino. Though I do have to say that's probably a good thing. Since I'm no longer employed there, I could get dressed and head over to the casino to play some slots or table games (I might spend a bit more than I … [Read more...]
