The Minions are coming: In theatres July 10th, 2015

Our whole family loves the Minions, those little adorable yellow guys that have an appeal across the ages. With a larger age gap between our children it can be hard finding a movie that not only will appeal to the two of them but to us as parents too and these adorable little guys leave us all laughing and entertained!

This movie is definitely on our list of must see movies for this summer, when it is released on July 10th, 2015. Talk about perfect timing to escape to a nice cool theater enjoying a bound to be hilarious movie.

Sorry Sir, that is not what we are selling!

Many years ago a simple phone call from a telemarketer led to me getting a badly needed job.

Nowadays, my interactions with Telemarketers usually consist of me realizing that it is a Telemarketer and explaining I don’t have time. Or if they refuse to listen simply hanging up.

But back in the days before I had children and thus more time on my hands I would occasionally actually listen to what they had to say to find out what they were selling.

On this particular occasion, I answered the phone and started to listen to the person describe how their company sold customized freezer packs to their clients.  While there was only the two of us and we actually were not living on much money at the time, the concept seemed interesting.
