This popular program on PBS has not only provided viewers with an incite of a chef’s life associated with the opening and running of a restaurant, but has given us a look into the rural South and its’ fabulous culinary offerings. Now it goes a step further making available the specialties of the region such as their very own inspired Blueberry BBQ Sauce. Now you can purchase a 16oz. jar at Southern Season for $12.99. As Chef Vivian Howard suggests think of this sauce as a finishing glaze on ham, poultry, even greens and as a dipping sauce. MDM bought 4 jars, two to keep on hand, and 2 as presents.

No, we’re not talking about the stock market. What we are talking about is a bargain site for designer goods where prices keep falling and you decide when the price is right for you to jump in and grab the bargain! Tumbledeal has several categories of deals going at the same time, for instance, in fashion the Coach Overstock Clearance listed above, and other deals in categories like electronics, lifestyle, etc,. and special events.
The savings can be tremendous, but a buyer must act decisively and quickly before the deal is sold out and–that’s right-G-O-N-E! Reportedly, this site can be quite addictive for bargain hunters–a form of retail slot machines! But hey, it combines two of bargain hunters favorite past times: (1)the hunt and (2)the quick snatch and grab from under the noses of other bargain seekers. So, tallyho, and have fun at this site where bargain hunting turns into casino night!
***As with any form of gambling, MDM recommends the buyer check consumer services for handling complaints and/or return and credit policy.

When the financial markets are in flux, as we saw earlier in this month, the good old standby of liquid commodities such as gold and silver rise as investors fear devaluation of paper currency. This amounts to scooping up large quantities of gold and silver. Subsequently removing and hoarding it against any financial instability. Recently, the Asian markets have felt jittery with the economic slowdown in China and the result has been scooping up gold and silver from the marketplace.
Can there be a real shortage of gold and silver? Chris Marchese suggests not, at the same time recognizing that supply and demand are not the only factors that comes into play in his article “The Gold and Silver Shortage?”
What does this mean to the fashionista?
Expect to pay more for jewelry made of these precious materials and jewelers and designers to use less and less of the real stuff and more of the gold/silver “embraced™ bronze.” In essence a coating to give the appearance of solid gold or silver.

KP duty in days gone by usually meant peeling potatoes–a relatively labor intensive, boring job. Now you can buy electric peelers designed to peel potatoes automatically. Some version of this has been around roughly since the 80’s, and unfortunately the expectations exceeded the reality. You are still better off using the old fashion peeler. But with so many on the market, how do you choose?
