Trident

Trident, the first national sugar-free gum in the US,  is the leading sugar-free gum brand. Trident is pretty much the only gum I chew. I seriously buy it in bulk at Costco. Did you know that Chewing Trident for 20 minutes after eating and drinking helps to  clean and protect  teeth? I am fanatic about brushing my teeth right after I eat. But if I can’t brush, I chew Trident. Trident has supported Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America program {Read More}

Lumia 1020 Picture Alaska

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to work closely with Nokia and the Windows phone that they were introducing, the Lumia 900.

I really got to work closely with the Windows Phone team to develop an intimate understanding of the phone and it fit perfectly in my life. In fact, I {Read More}

It doesn’t feel as soft as it did earlier this year (before summer). {Read More}

As your child progresses through school, you will notice that more emphasis will be placed on developing reading and writing skills, especially when your child transitions from first grade to second grade. In second grade, your child is expected to be more advanced in {Read More}
