Whew!  Before we get started, I am behind on responding to comments and visiting my fave blogs.  I may be in slow motion for the moment, but will catch up soon!

I'm giving a shout out to my buddy Mary Kirkland of Dark Thoughts Blog at: who hosts her Freebie Friday every week.  She's got a lot of different things going on, so be sure to check her out!

If you're not taking advantage of all the cool freebies you can get just for getting a year older, you're missing out for sure. On my birthday, time was a factor, so I didn't get to sit in any restaurants.  All my goodies were takeout.

Join Arby’s Extras to become an insider and you'll get plenty of deals.  You'll get a FREE roast Beef Sandwich if you purchase a drink AND 1 week before your birthday, you'll get a coupon for a FREE shake like I did.  Mine was yummy Jamocha.

Join the email club at Applebees and score a FREE appetizer, then on your birthday, get a FREE entree or appetizer

Join the Red Robin Royalty Club and get the best tasting cheeseburger ever!

We stopped a few other places before picking up a Chocolate Chip Frappuccino from Starbucks and heading home.

The watermelons and tomatoes growing out front are amazing!  Every day, things seem to grow bigger and bigger. The mint is awesome, too!

Recently, I've noticed a rash of Facebook Groups popping up that offer to help individuals with rent problems, clothing, food or utility bills. When people in dire need ask for assistance, there was literally NO response from anyone which surprised me.  There are people who are homeless or about to lose power due to the loss of their jobs, domestic violence, layoffs, or cuts in salary.  Many are embarrassed to seek help outside of their own circles yet gather the courage to do so. So, in my opinion, those who take the time and effort to create a page designated to help others...uh, should probably at least respond in some manner. Not doing so, just seems cruel or rude.  Or if their minds were changed about offering assistance, simply delete that page.
