Arkansas Travelers

Arkansas Travelers Baseball team is a farm team for the Angels.

Today they had one of their own get taken up to the Angels.  Skipped the farm team - AAA and went straight up because of an injury to someone else.

Can you tell me who it was.

Just a short quiz.

Home Security for Trucker Alabama.

Where is Trucker Alabama?  I do not know do you?  Maybe you live there and maybe you might want to know more about having a home security for trucker.   If you live there or most anywhere in the United States and you are worried about your home security then you might want to contact Advanced Direct Security.  They can help you with all of your security needs. 

This might really be important if you have a great big screen hooked up with Direct TV .  This would give you a better peace of mind if you are away from home. You would have experts watching out for your big screen and the rest of the things in your home.  They will let you know if anyone attempts to get into your home or if there is any breach of your home by unauthorized visitors.

This is a great peace of mind.  This is something that can make you enjoy your vacation or any other time away from home.  Peace of mind is very important.  This can give you that peace of mind.

This is my thoughts for now.

Holiday over.

Fourth of July is over and hopefully no one blew off a finger or set off a massive wildfire.   It was a quiet holiday for us.  Very little excitement.  A burger, ice cream, and family was pretty much what we did. 

Most excitement we had was that a neighbor decided to have a great fireworks display.  I was outside taking a few pictures from my driveway which is three doors down.  Suddenly, car lights came on from about three blocks away and a police car with lights flaring came racing up the street to the fireworks display area. 

Neighbor had a great conversation with the police officer.  Police officer then raced off to his next criminal around the corner.  Must have been a slow night for real crime.

That is my thoughts for now.

Parent’s Choice Infant Formula Savings Sweepstakes

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PBM Products for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Arkansas is the original home of Walmart.  Walmart has grown to be a big company.  Many people complain that big companies don't do good things but many times Walmart is known to be different from that.   Walmart has helped many families with their private label infant formula which is known as Parent's Choice Infant Formula.  This has provided great infant nutrition at affordable prices.  This has been a good relationship.

Now another chapter in this is being written.  Parent's Choice will help one student and one family with the launch of the Parent’s Choice Infant Formula Savings Sweepstakes.  Yes, Parent's Choice in conjunction with PBM Products, LLC, a Perrigo company will ge giving one winner $10,000 college scholarship in the form of a College Savings 529 plan.  How great is that to be a company that possibly provided the infant formula for a young child and now to maybe provide a college savings plan for that same child.

So, if you are interested in this formula and want more information or if you are interested in entering this sweepstakes then you should visit this site and complete the necessary information.  It could mean a college education for your child.  Now that is a good thing done by a big company. 

Did I mention that the date of the Sweepstakes is June 15th to August 1st.  That is important to know.  Make that deadline if you can.  This could mean an education.
