Ezy Pruner Ratchet Pruning Shears


I have to admit, I am not much for gardening and do not have a green thumb! But, I did try these out and they seem to work well with cutting branches. My husband also tried them out (he is the one with the green thumb!) and he really likes them! He says they work quite well and they seem very sturdy and are great for pruning and he uses them quite often. They seem quite sharp and cut through branches quite easily.

Tips to find and keep an internship for high school students

Looking for an Internship?


  1. Decide what kind of internship you want. Do you want to work inside or outside? On a team or on your own? In a formal business setting or in a more casual one? While you’re looking don’t forget about non-profits and small businesses right in your community.
  2. Check with your school to see if there is an internship program you can connect with.
  3. Network! Let everyone you know that you want an internship. You never know who may offer you a chance.
  4. Get your resume together.
  5. Prepare to answer the big interview question: “Why do you want this internship?”

When you have your internship

  1. Take an interest in the whole organization and everyone there.
  2. Try to spend time with as many people as possible, learning about their roles and how they got there.
  3. Ask questions if you’re not sure of what you have to do.
  4. Stay positive even when things seem not to go your way or when you have grunt work to do.
  5. Stay off your phone or iPad when you are at work.

K9King Dog Treat Silicone Bone Mold Cake Pans are a Must-Buy for Dog Owners!


This Summer I am enjoying making my pup ice cream bones! This is so easy to do with the K9King Dog Treat Silicone Bone Mold Cake Pan. I really love this Cake pan for my pup! I actually like using it to make ice cream bones. It freezes easily and so easy to remove the bones. I also tried it with a dog cookie recipe and it works really well. Super easy to clean and my dog loves his treats! I have been using this weekly in the freezer. I love how this is great to make your own healthier treats! This way you know exactly what ingredients are in your pups treats!
