I've been Tagged!

Becky over at Nickls-N-Dimes tagged me.

So, 7 facts about me:

1. I'm a retired Research Chef
2. Nice to be retired when I'm not 40 yet
3. The favorite place I've traveled to so far is New Zealand
4. I am a fan of the Harry Potter books, but also read romance & thrillers
5. I have moved 9 times in the 12 years that I've been married.
6. I am still new to blogging, but am finding that I enjoy it
7. I had pen pals across the ocean before the internet existed

So, I really don't know very many other bloggers & between Becky & a couple of the other people she tagged I don't know of anyone else to tag. Guess it's time to go get a Snack & get off the computer.

**Update to the Barbie Deal run through

Hi Everyone,
Just wanted to let you know that there may be an extra bonus coming as a result of shopping the Barbie deal the other day.  I've read on a couple of websites where if you spend $25 in the toy dept of Amazon you will receive an e-mail in 6 to 8 weeks for a free subscription to Cookie Magazine.  Don't want the magazine?  Looks like there will be a $15 refund if you don't want it.
Not sure if this one is going to happen or if it's something that has already expired, but just wanted to let those of you know who shopped to keep an eye on your e-mail boxes coming up.

**Update - I had an e-mail this morning from Amazon offering me this 2 year subscription to Cookie Magazine, so check your messages. You may also need to make sure you are set up to receive e-mails from Amazon.  E-mail me at chefcatnky at if you need help with this (change at to the @ sign).

For those of you who didn't shop on Friday, but still want to take advantage of the rebate for a $50 Visa Gift Card with a $100 Barbie purchase from the items listed, just go here to print it off.
Then click Here to shop at Amazon and get free shipping for the barbies.  
The rebate doesn't expire until Dec. 31, 2008. 
I'll post if I see any other good deals in the toy dept to add on to sweeten the deal.

Bath & Body works Free item with $10 purchase
