Ashley Tutors ~ Education then vs now

Technology is changing the way we live and do work, but it’s also transforming the way we learn. In the past several decades, technological innovations have made their way into the classroom and forever altered the course - 

Do you remember the days of The Apple II and those stand alone computers and and do you remember those floppy disks and CD roms? or even a chalkboard? oh and those big heavy textbooks?? What about those rotary phones?? 

WOW have things have changed since I was in school~ My children are learning with new technology like iPads, SmartBoards, kindles, cell phones. Now when they need info about anything they just google it and can come up with all the info they need about any subject!! Today when a paper is do my kiddos just type it out and print it. They even carry all the info they may need for school via a thumb drive.

IF you are a parent like I am, then you know or have used the older gadgets listed about and are a pro at using them, but when you try and assist your child with their home work, do you find it overwhelming or hard to use the new gadgets? 
I know I do! Technology is just going to keep taking over education! 

To avoid the nightly struggle of the homework battle let Ashley Tutors help your child to succeed!

 To learn more about how technology is altering the course education check out this fun, interactive graphic on their website!

it is so easy to make that they can help me with it
28 oz can whole San Marzano tomatoes, chopped
6 oz can tomato paste

1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
8 oz package sliced fresh mushrooms
⅓ cup sliced pitted kalamata olives
8 oz package shredded part-skim mozzarella
2 cups baby spinach

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine 
tomatoes and tomato paste in a medium
saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to
medium and simmer 10 minutes or until
thickened; cool slightly. Press bread dough into
the bottom and up the sides of a 12-inch cast-
iron skillet coated with cooking spray; spread
desired amount of sauce over dough. Top with
pepperoni, bell pepper, mushrooms, olives,
mozzarella, and spinach; bake on the bottom
rack 18 to 20 minutes or until browned and
crispy. Serve remaining sauce with pizza or
cover and refrigerate up to 2 weeks.

Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar Review and Giveaway

I am  Purex insider!
I was chosen for this promo to review the Purex Fels~Naptha Laundry Bar!

Purex® Fels-Naptha is a laundry bar that works overtime to remove your toughest stains. 

Relavant Links
Purex Fels-Naptha is a powerful laundry bar that works overtime to remove greasy, oily stains, perspiration, and ring-around-the-collar. With over 100 years of removing America’s stains, you can rest assured that this laundry bar knows how to tackle your toughest stains.
All you’ve got to do is rub the stain with a wet bar of Purex Fels-Naptha and let it sit for a few minutes. Then wash your clothes as you normally would and say farewell to tough stains for good.

I did not use it to clean stains or anything like that because I had a use in mind for those 3 bars I bought~

It makes GREAT Home made Laundry detergent!!
Here is what you need:

1 4 lb 12 oz box Borax (2.15 kg or 76 oz) found in the detergent isle
1 4 lb box Arm & Hammer Baking Soda (1.81 kg) found in the cooking isle
1  box Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda 55 oz (3 lb 7 oz) found in the detergent isle
3 bars of Fels-Naptha soap, found in the detergent isle
2 small containers of Oxy Clean or store brand Oxy Clean (try to get about 3.5 lbs total (1.58 kg)) found in the detergent isle.
You should be able to find all of these items at your grocery store.

**Use 1-2 Tablespoons per load. I know that does not seem like enough but this recipe does not have fillers like the store bought detergent so you only need 1-2 Tablespoons.**
This detergent is fairly mild smelling, it is not over powering. If you love a strong scent you may have to add a fabric softener or laundry crystals to each load. You can find laundry crystals in the detergent isle.

Start out by grating your Fels-Naptha soap just like cheese. You can use a food processor or just use your hand held grater, what ever you have. Those of you with an HE washer may want to run the mix through the grater again to get an even finer mix.

**Don't worry the Fels-Naptha will dissolve in your washer even if you only use cold water
Toss all ingredients in a 5 gallon bucket lined with a garbage bag. This part makes your whole house smell great. Once everything is mixed store soap however you like. 
The recipe makes about 2 gallons worth of detergent
Wasn't that easy? 
I was reading other bloggers post about this detergent and it has lasted them 9 months to a year!
Wow! Thats only $22 for a YEAR of detergent!

Thanks to Being Creative to Keep my Sanity for the recipe

Thanks to Pure insiders 3 lucky readers of Dnbuster's Place will win a coupon to try Fels-Naptha for themselves!
