Yahoo! Shine Nominations!

Hey Neighbors!

Have you heard about the Yahoo! Shine Women Who Shine program?  You can visit their site and nominate a woman you feel is a shining example to you.  Whether she is someone who has started a business, participates in community service, or has just done something that inspires you to try harder.  Maybe this woman has been an example in your life, or even helped change your life in some way.  She could be someone you have never personally met, like someone you know online, or she could be a close friend or relative.  Is there a woman you look up to that you would like to nominate for the Yahoo! Shine Women Who Shine program?  You might want to nominate your mom!  The winner will receive $10,000.  Be sure to visit the site and vote, or even nominate someone yourself. (

I nominated Toni-Lynn Barber.  She is a single mom with two sons and she has a successful website going.  Toni-Lynn is a stay at home mom!  She has been featured on several local sites for her couponing skills and her participation in community outreach through helping with virtual food drives.  She actually has four sites up and running.  Delightful Chaos is where she does product reviews and giveaways. then there is A Few Fries Short, a recipe site where she shares recipes with others.  Grocery Price Books was designed to help shoppers look up prices before shopping.  And last but not least is her Mak Media.  The initials are her father's who was diagnosed with cancer and who passed away in June of 2008.  She started the company in his memory.  Visit Toni-Lynn's sites to learn a little more about her.

Take time to nominate someone you know.  The voting will be open until October 29th and the winner will be announced November 12th.  There are runner-up prizes as well as the Grand Prize of $10,000.  There are 8 different categories to choose from; Activist, Athlete, Entrepreneur, Healers, Mothers, Public Service, Survivors and Teachers.   Even if you don't have someone to nominate take a moment and vote for one or more of the ladies who have already been nominated.  I am sure you will find at least one that will spark your interest.

Now, how about you?  Do you have someone to nominate?  If you do nominate someone please leave a comment here to tell us about it.  Perhaps we can go vote for your nominee!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
