Aposhoppers Promotes Magic Jack For Military Members In OCONUS locations

Military members and their families live on the go. Many times they are sent places that require them to be without normal services like phones. While cell phones are widely available while in OCONUS locations, the ability to save money would be an even bigger asset when dialing back to the states. That is why the Magic Jack is so innovative to military members and their families. We can use it for only $19.95 a year. That is really efficient. It is secure as well.

There are other reasons why the Magic Jack is wonderful choice. The Magic Jack is a device that allows you to make calls using your Internet connection. It can be considered VOIP service. It is perfect because you can use it anywhere you have a computer. The portability factor is what makes it amazing. That means that anybody, even your child, can take this device and plug it into a computer with an Internet connection, and using a regular phone that is connected to the Magic Jack, make a call. That allows what previously was a limited situation, to become a very normal life. That can really help with the stresses of daily life in the military. Especially when a loved one is deployed and and their family is back in the states.

The sound quality on the Magic Jack is good. It sounds as good as any land line. The better the Internet connection is, the better the sound quality is as well. Be aware that it is dependent on that fact. If you internet is slow, you can experience some delays in conversation. Family members can be reached easier and at less cost then ever before. All thanks to this handy little device.

Some prices are varied by the location that you buy yours, but there are offers that allow you to get the device for a bit less than $19.95. Keep in mind that you buy the Magic Jack separately from the service. The Magic Jack purchase is a one time fee. It can be purchased for a similar price. (Between $19 and $30.) When you consider that most people pay $29. a month for local phone service, it is a huge annual savings. Lets say $30 for the Magic Jack and $20 dollars a year for the service versus $20 a month for regular phone or voip service. That goes a long way in the Military. Money is normally tight and savings have to be real.

The Magic Jack is widely available to anyone that wants to get this device. You might want to get one for each member of the family. When you compare it to a phone contract, the savings are obvious. Even month to month no contract plans can’t beat the Magic Jack price. It really adds up at the end of the year. Do the math for your land line or cell phone.

This handy device can be used anywhere in the world as well. Military families can obviously benefit from it, but really anyone can use this while traveling. Since you don’t need anything more than a phone and a computer with an Internet connection, you can call anywhere and at any time. You could even get the Magic Jack specifically for an overseas trip. If you have a cell phone company that is trying to charge you huge fees for traveling overseas, just toss the cell phone and get this little gadget. Tell the cell phone companies what they can do with their annual increases. Set yourself and your family free from high costs for communication.

In the end you really can’t go wrong with the Magic Jack. Your family can use it to stay in touch at a fraction of the cost that traditional phone service costs. Military members and their families get savings that can’t be beat. Take advantage of this savings for your family and stay in touch at very little cost.

Carol’s Daughter: A look at a line of natural beauty products
By: Sev – California

Actress Lisa Price who started experimenting with homemade beauty products in the early eighties in Brooklyn named her line of beauty products after her mother. Her products are all natural and alot of celebrities like Jada Pinkett Smith, Brad Pitt and Mary J. Blige use them.
The hair products are awesome. I have damaged hair. I could not find anything that would work on my tresses, not even the stuff that my hair stylist would recommend. When I asked a coworker at the newspaper where I work how she kept her hair looking so gorgeous she mentioned that she only uses “Carol’s Daughter” hair products. I decided I had to try the products for myself

There are a few stores in New York City, as far as I know, but since I live in California, I went online and found her website. It’s easy to find, just google “Carol’s Daughter.” The name is as unique as the products. So I purchased Lisa’s Hair Elixir. It cost me $20 and it focuses on repairing damaged hair with soy and sweet almond oils. It smells so natural and my hair feels soft and silky after years of looking like straw. “Carol’s Daughter” also offers a variety of other hair products, popular ones being Hair Milk, another luxurious replenishment for hair that’s fried and her Healthy Hair Butter which you leave in your hair. Healthy Hair Butter has almond oil, shea and coconut butter in its ingredients. My hair looks hot these days thanks to Carol’s Daughter.
“Carol’s Daughter” offers makeup, gift sets, products for the little ones, fragrances. I stumbled on one called “Ocean.” It’s an Eau de Toilette and its ingredients are mainly rosemary and rose. It costs $27.00 for 2 ounces but its incredible and unique. It’s not overpowering like fragrances made from artificial ingredients, its subtle and wearing it makes me feel sexy and carefree.
There’s other fragrances I want to try, like her “Groove” Eau de Toilette, which also sells for the same size and price.
.I have to say I love my hair, and her stuff is so good. It just works. The ingredients in her products are all natural and after using “Carol’s Daughter” products for almost two years now, I have to say Mother Nature and Lisa Price make a great team.

If you haven’t figured it out, Carol’s Daughter does ship to APO/FPO addresses. I can even vouch for the product. I sent my mother a gift basket for Mother’s day and she absolutely loved it. Give Carol’s Daughter a try.

Who Wants A Moon Pie?

An unknown author raves about Old Time Candy’s popular product…the Moonpie. Appearantly, it has been a while since they have been able to sink his or her teeth into one. Well, until Old Time Candy crashed the APO/FPO boxes.
________________________________________________________________________________________

I see a lot of off brands of moon pies, but nothing compares to the taste of the original. A moon pie is just right for my appetite. It never spoils my next meal. A moon pie is two graham cracker cookies filled with a delicious marshmallow crème filling and then dipped in chocolate or other coatings. They have the original moon pies, mini moon pies, which are half the size, a double-decker moon pie, which consist of an extra graham cracker cookie, and even a moon pie crunch, which explains itself. The older brands consisted of chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and banana. My favorites are chocolate and banana. They have just recently come out with six new flavors including peanut butter, lemon, orange, mint, blueberry and even a green tea. The green tea doesn’t sound appetizing but I would like to try it. With so many flavors and types to choose from there is something for everyone.

Moon pies are very popular in my family and too many other people. How can you resist graham crackers and chocolate? Then when you put marshmallows in the mix it is even better. It is almost like having s’mores, just without the flames and the heat. The most popular thing about is that it is soft. The texture of moon pies just melts in your mouth. You can get moon pies from a variety of locations. Most stores still carry them, but you have to look to find them. Don’t be fooled by the off brands like marshmallow pies, scooter pies, mallomars, wagon wheels, and choco pies. These pies are similar but still don’t compare. You may find them and even order them online.
