Typing Or Writing Your Address!

When I email out information to a person that they won a giveaway on my blog, they email me back with their address, or so they think!

I get stuff like this:

Susie homes
22 s hillard ave apt78
south park ohio 56287


jim jones
7865 berry ave k
n hillsboro utah 26587

Ok, now if you want the sponsor to be able to send them their prizes. Then I have to go look up these addresses to find out if they are correct, and sometimes I have to email these people back to double check that what they emailed me, and I corrected is their actual address!

These addresses should have been written like this:

Susie Homes
22 S. Hillard Ave. Apt.78
South Park, OH 56287

Jim Jones
7865 Berry Ave.  K (or #K or Apt. K)
N. Hillsboro, UT 26587

I am thinking that either children aren't learning this in school anymore, or they aren't taking the time to figure out what their actual address is and how to correctly write or type it. I'm not really sure. It's not hard to look up state abbreviations. It's also not hard to google your own address or read your junk mail to find out how your address should be written!

Check here for state abbreviations: or Google it! You could even have one or two lessons and teach this to your children over the summer!

"A Monster Calls" Movie Trailer! In Theaters October 21st! #AMonsterCalls

Directed by: J.A. Bayona (“The Impossible,” “The Orphanage”)
Written by: Patrick Ness, based on his novel A Monster Calls
Starring: Sigourney Weaver, Felicity Jones, Toby Kebbell, Lewis MacDougall, and Liam Neeson

A visually spectacular drama from director J.A. Bayona (“The Impossible”). 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall), dealing with his mother’s (Felicity Jones) illness, a less-than-sympathetic grandmother (Sigourney Weaver), and bullying classmates, finds a most unlikely ally when a Monster appears at his bedroom window. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth. Toby Kebbell plays Conor’s father, and Liam Neeson stars in performance-capture and voiceover as the nocturnally visiting Monster of the title.

Rated PG-13

Disney/Pixar's "Finding Dory" Movie & Pirate's Booty #Review! #FindingDory #JustKeepSwimming #HaveYouSeenHer #PiratesBooty

My family and I had a chance to preview "Finding Dory" last night! Disney/Pixar did not disappoint! It is awesome! Even if you haven't seen Finding Nemo, you can still see Finding Dory! Disney/Pixar brought back some of the old characters from Finding Nemo along with some new ones too! You will laugh and laugh. All of the funny parts are aimed at both children and adults. There are no inside jokes in this movie. No one dies! WOW, a Disney Movie where No one dies! No one gets hurt! Nothing bad happens! Yea! Way to go Disney/Pixar!

Disney is finally getting back to it's rated G roots! Finally! It's says PG, but there was nothing PG about this movie! The graphics are amazing and it's really worth the extra money to see in 3D!

Go see "Finding Dory" this weekend or next so you can find out which character is Becky! And who Bailey and Destiny are! And if you watch the TV show "Modern Family," you will recognize some familiar voices! Finding Dory is now in theaters everywhere!

We always take snacks into the movies with us, as we can't always afford to purchase the snacks inside the theater. Most movie theaters don't mind too much. We also enjoy snacks at home while hanging out or watching movies. My three children and I especially love Pirate's Booty! My six year old daughter has eaten most of them!

Pirate’s Booty dives head first into summer by collaborating with Disney’s Finding Dory. To celebrate the premiere of this long awaited movie, Pirate’s Booty is releasing limited-edition, themed packaging featuring the beloved Finding Dory characters.

Dory, Nemo and their new friend—Hank the Octopus—will join Pirate and his first mate, Crunchy the Parrot, to bring adventurous snacking to kids of all ages. The limited-edition packaging comes in a variety of sizes, including seven ounces, 10 ounces and a 12-pack of half-ounce bags of Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar.

Pirate's Booty are Baked Rice and Corn Puffs, Gluten Free and made with No Artificial Colors, Flavors or Preservatives! Pirate's Booty has been creating treasures since 1987 with the belief you shouldn't have to "snackrifice" tasts for goodness...Arrr!

They've created products for the whole family that are baked and delicious. Their Aged White Cheddar puffs are free from fryers and they keep the ingredients simple... you can be sure they only thing they add is fun! Pirate's Booty also comes in Veggie, Crunchy Treasures, Fruity Booty and more! You can purchase Pirate's Booty at your local store!

Disney•Pixar's “Finding Dory” reunites everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang, Dory, with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. What can she remember? Who are her parents? And where did she learn to speak Whale?

Directed by Andrew Stanton (“Finding Nemo,” “WALL•E”) and produced by Lindsey Collins (co-producer “WALL•E”), the film features the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O'Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton. “Finding Dory” swims into theaters this Friday, June 17, 2016.
