Free up your hands with a tablet stand


I love office supplies and trying out new ones but I never saw a need for a tablet stand because I don’t use a tablet often. However, my daughters use their tablets all the time, so when Shoplet.com asked if I wanted to try a tablet stand free of charge, I said sure. I’m very glad I did.

One of the things I noticed right away was how small the tablet stand was. It folds down for easy storage which is a huge plus for me. Whether I keep it in my office, or one of the girls takes it to their room, it will fit in a drawer or cubby easily.

Another nice feature of this tablet stand is that you can use your tablet in portrait or landscape mode and rotates 360 degrees.

The hands free design makes playing games, pinning, following recipes (both on and offline) a breeze. I even found it holds paperwork to ease viewing and entering information on spreadsheets.

All in all, we really like this tablet stand and find it is a good value for the price. I invite you to go to Shoplet.com to learn more about all the Kantek products.

Ground Hogs Day- Southern Style


Yesterday was all about Family and Football around here and with the exception on answering a phone call or two; I didn’t watch or read any media until the puppy bowl started. 

In the back of my mind I was wondering if Punxsutawney Phil had saw his shadow foretelling of another 6 weeks of winter. If you are like us and I’m betting you are- we are done with winter and need a sign, any sign that spring is on its way.

So once I got the kids on the bus to school- 2 hours late mind you because of the forecasted sleet and snow we didn’t get, I decided to go on my fact finding mission. 

Sure enough, according to the Washington post, that silly northerner Phil had in fact saw his shadow yesterday. But, he was wrong last year remember? He said we would get spring early last year. Instead of leaving as soon as I read spring was another 6 weeks a way according to Phil, I decided to keep reading the whole article and there it was at the bottom- a beacon of hope for this southern lady. 

Seems there is a southern groundhog based out of Atlanta; General Beau Lee is his name and he has been predicting the comings and goings of spring for the Southeast for 33 years.

How in the world did I not know about Beau? 


A quick click of my mouse and Hey! Beau says spring will come early for our region! And Birmingham Bill, (based out of Birmingham Alabama naturally) agrees with Beau. 

 I like these southern groundhogs.

This made me realize maybe you don’t know about your own regional groundhog either and you’d like too. After all, we don’t plant our gardens full of plants out of our growing and hardiness zones, so why should we listen to a groundhog out of our region?

Here is the link to other groundhog prognosticators.


Since there are parts of North America currently not covered by a groundhog, the folks at AccuWeather were kind enough to make us a spring weather map.

I know this whole predicting of weather is a hard thing to do,  so I'll take any signs of hope at this point. It's been such a cold, long winter, we are all ready for spring aren't we?

 I’m looking for signs of spring everywhere. And it may be just wishful thinking, but I swear I see the hint of change on the branches of our trees and a few sprigs of green wild onions coming up in the lawn.

 A special thanks Beau for giving me and all of Southerners much needed hope!  Please share in comments- do you see any signs of spring in your region? Where are you on the above map?
