Olive Garden


The first time I set foot inside an Olive Garden restaurant, I fell in love with it. The aromas were intoxicating, the servers were exceptional, and the food was delicious.

The Olive Garden offers so many exceptional dishes, in fact, that choosing one to eat is always a challenge. I've never been disappointed with anything I've eaten.

Unlike other restaurants that serve traditional meals, like steak and potatoes, the Olive Garden offers a variety of meals you probably wouldn't make at home. Anybody can grill a steak. How many people do you know who can whip up Four Cheese Pastachetties with Grilled Chicken (see photo)?

Their lunch menu is reasonably priced, and for the amount of food you get, you can order one meal and split it with a partner. A friend and I often split our meal and find that it's just enough for the two of us. We get to spend time together, enjoy a fabulous meal, and not spend a week's worth of groceries on one meal.

If you haven't had a chance to visit the Olive Garden, treat yourself to this gourmet meal experience. Olive Garden restaurants are everywhere. Click any of the links in this blog and find one near you.

Academy Awards

Guest post of the week by Bradley Guthrie

The Academy Awards is such a classy event that brings together the best and most qualified celebrities out there. I simply love to watch this awards show for the fashion. It is so much fun to analyze each celebrity's style and to see what each celebrity is wearing. There is nothing better than seeing what each celebrity is wearing and how different designers appeal to different celebrities.

I think it is interesting to see why different celebrities choose to wear the designers they wear to the Academy Awards. Some celebs are actually friends with top designers like Chanel, which is quite interesting and intriguing. Other celebs simply fall in love with certain gowns, even if they have never worn that designer before. I think it is cool to see celebs try out new designers and wear gorgeous dresses they may have never chosen otherwise. It is also fun to see celebs wear more traditional designers like Chanel or Oscar de la Renta.

I never miss the Academy Awards on my www.directstartv.com. If there is one program that I refuse to miss, it is this one. I love to forecast what the trends in evening wear will be for the upcoming year, by watching this awards ceremony. It is also the perfect way to relax from any crazy day too. It is a great show!

Be a Better Blogger

I've noticed in a lot of the blogs I've read, how clumsily written some of them are. Blogs I have to stumble over are difficult to read, and poorly written blogs persuade me to move on to the next blog.

Why? Because if I'm reading a blog that is so badly written, and I have to re-read what I just read, I get so frustrated at not being able to understand the blog, I give up and move on to the next blog.

Don't bloggers care about having their blogs read? With so much help out there, bloggers have no reason to write messy unreadable blogs. One invaluable tool for helping writers write better blogs is White Smoke.

How many times have you visited a blog and thought, hmm, looks like this blogger just grabbed random words from the dictionary and threw them on the page hoping they would make sense? Hopefully never, but I sometimes wonder if bloggers write a different language and then substitute words they hope will make sense. Oftentimes they don't and the blogger appears to be a third grader pretending to be a college graduate.

Again, White Smoke comes to the rescue with great translation abilities. Compared to Microsoft Word when it comes to grammar, White Smoke comes out as the winner, at least according to CNN and others.

If you're looking for help in writing great blog posts, and especially if you are translating from a foreign language, check out White Smoke, either by clicking on the ad next to this blog or by clicking on any of the links in this blog.

Breakthrough Health Information

Breakthrough information – whenever I read those words my eyes pop wide open. I LOVE researching the latest breakthroughs in science and medicine.

My family members are probably dropping their jaws right now (well, two of my family members are dropping their jaws right now – nobody else in my family reads my blogs), because science was always my WORST subject. I HATED science growing up.

I honestly think the reason I hated science was because the teachers who instructed me were either boring or didn't really care about science either. They could have made it so much more interesting, but they didn't. All through grammar school I dreaded science class, because I knew I would be bored silly.

By the time I got to high school, already bored with the subject, I approached my freshman science class with disdain, especially after we were told we had to dissect a frog, a LIVE frog that would be euthanized in front of our eyes.

And then when I got to college, one of my science instructors threw a bunch of rocks at my lab partner and me and told us to identify them. What? They're rocks! We had a good laugh about how we couldn't tell the difference between flagstone and feldspar, and if he had included gems like rubies and jade, we'd  have fared much better in his class, but still, science didn't interest me.

And then – suddenly – I don't know what the catalyst was – everything changed. I devoured medical information like a ravenous beast. If I saw a copy of JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) sitting next to a copy of People in my doctor's office, I grabbed the JAMA. And when it came to NEW, BREAKTHROUGH information, I couldn't wait to read it.

So you can imagine how I reacted when I had the opportunity to read The Doctors Health e-Bulletin (see the link next to this blog). Those little synapses in my brain danced around in my head with excitement. Whether the information relates to asthma, cancer, or the best brain-boosting super foods, I love learning about how I can improve my health and now I can use The Doctors Health e-Bulletin as a source.

If you are one of those people who gets excited at learning the latest health information and who jumps at the word, breakthrough, click the link next to this blog under The Doctors Health e-Bulletin to get your shot of breakthrough information.

Style My House is Offering $10,000 to Remodel Your Home!

I love walking through homes that are beautifully decorated and that have everything in place. My talents are not in the decorating or remodeling field. Perhaps because all of my stuff is cramped mostly into my bedroom, I have no space to decorate. But my daughter, her husband, and their children will soon be moving out and while I have the house up for sale, I'm also contemplating getting a roommate.

Having had horrible experiences with roommates in the past, I'm a little afraid of what's out there, but I love my home and would really like to keep it. The other day I came up with an idea that might work. My bedroom and my family room share a wall. The family room is sunk-in and is just off the dining area which is just off the kitchen. I love the openness, but I love my privacy more.

So I came up with an idea for putting a wall between the dining area and the family room. That way my bedroom and my family room would be mine and mine alone. When I came across Style My House (see link next to this blog), and saw that StyleMyHouse was offering a $10,000 remodeling contest, I signed up.

That wall would change the entire look of my home, but with a gifted contractor, my home will look even better than it did before. I'll have my own little portion of the house and any roommates I get will have theirs. If you would like to enter the StyleMyHouse $10,000 contest, click the link next to this blog. I wish you luck, but I have to tell you – I'm looking forward to winning ;)

VistaPrint – My Top Pick for Business Cards

My new car magnet will look like this.
FREE! Don't you just love that word? When I received an email for FREE business cards, I wanted to know, "What's the catch?" But for the price of only shipping and handling, I thought, why not?

True to their word, VistaPrint sent me FREE business cards. All I truly had to pay was shipping and handling.

When my daughter added a car magnet to her automobile to promote her consignment boutique, I thought, why not get a car magnet to promote my writing business?

Synchronicity, or meaningful coincidences as some like to say, placed an email in my box from VistaPrint offering car magnets at an unbelievably low price. I designed the magnet and am now awaiting its arrival, along with new business cards to promote my web site, WritingCreatively.

If you're looking for ways to promote your business and you don't want to spend an exorbitant amount of money, click the VistaPrint ad near this blog.
