          DANE COOK TAPPED TO VOICE DUSTY IN “DISNEY’S PLANES” High-Flying Animated Comedy Adventure Soars into Theaters August 9, 2013 BURBANK, Calif. (February 28, 2013) – Dane Cook has been tapped to voice the lead character Dusty, a plane with high hopes in “Disney’s Planes.” Inspired by the world of “Cars” and directed by Disneytoon Studios veteran and aviation enthusiast Klay Hall (“King of the Hill,” “The Simpsons”), “Disney’s Planes” is an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure about Dusty’s dream of competing as a high-flying air racer—and his decidedly unfortunate fear of heights.

Day 21 of our Listerine Challenge Results

On Monday February 4, 2013 my family began the Listerine 21 Day Challenge. So, what's this challenge all about? It's about making big improvements in our oral health. It takes three weeks to form a healthy habit, that's 21 days. Well, did it work? Glad you asked! We started the Listerine 21 Day Challenge equipped with supplies: I put the new supplies in all three bathrooms. Kids bathroom: Listerine in fun flavors, and fun toothbrush designs, floss Parents bathroom: Listerine Ultraclean, toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss Downstairs bathroom: Listerine Ultraclean The girls liked the Barbie Smart Rinse and used it morning and night along with brushing. They added the rinse to their brushing routine, previously they just brushed. They are a little better on flossing but still working on doing that everyday. Rinsing with Smart Rinse is a big improvement for them. My husband and I used Listerine before we started the 21 Day Challenge, but we had not tired  Ultraclean formula. (tota

L'Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream Review

The older I get, the more I am looking at my face. Looking for those tiny lines, those dark circles, and dry skin patches. I don't wear a lot of make up, however I like to look like I am awake when I should be. My fair skin could use some beauty help-L'OREAL Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream gives my face all over coverage for perfecting those areas that need to be hydrated and evened out.  I applied the cream earlier this morning.
