What To Do In Fort Myers Florida

You can look on the internet for ideas of "What To Do in Fort Myers Florida" but sometimes it takes someone who knows the area to show you the sometimes "out of the way" places to have the best time.  

I've given you a few places that I know about that are local favorite places to hang out and you can have a great time at any of them.  

Of course I've also added some information on the main attractions such as the Thomas Edison and Henry Ford Estates to visit but for a relaxed good time, definitely check out:

Cuttlebug Machine V2

Cuttlebug Machine V2

In my opinion, scrapbookers cannot get the job done without having some sort of die cut machine and my total recommendation for the most economic and versatile die cut machine is the Cuttlebug.  

You are not limited to just using embossing folders and dies for Cuttlebug.  Many of the other brands are adaptable to use in the Cuttlebug machine.  

At a very affordable price, the Cuttlebug machine is a must-have for even the occasional scrapbooker.

Otterbox Defender Series Hybrid Case & Holster for iPhone 4 and 4S

Otterbox Defender Series Hybrid Case & Holster for iPhone 4 and 4S

If you are just getting into the iPhone craze like I am and having trouble holding on to that skinny little, slippery iPhone, then take a look at this Otterbox Defender Series Hybrid Case & Holster for iPhone 4 and 4S.

Otterbox Defender Series for iPhone 4 & 4S - 1 Pack - Retail Packaging - Peony Pink/Deep Plum

Within my first 24 hours of getting my new phone, I came very close to dropping it and had coffee spilled on it and only had a flimsy little case that the iPhone slipped into.  I was lucky no damage happened to my phone but that taught me a lesson about protecting my new investment.

Fabric Bowls, Purses and Baskets

Fabric Bowls, Purses and Baskets

Looking to find an easy craft to work on while watching TV or just to wind down at the end of the day?  Making baskets, bowls, purses, etc. with fabric covering clothesline is one of the easiest crafts you can find to do. 

I've even heard that there is now colored clothesline, so you don't even have to wrap fabric around the clothesline if you don't want to take that extra time. 

It doesn't cost much to get started; the book, some fabric strips, some clothesline and a sewing machine that has a zig-zag feature.

One Week Marketing Private Training Center

One Week Marketing Private Training Center

The more and more time I spend on the internet, reading, learning and listening to the next hyped up "money maker" program that is due to launch and will make you thousands or millions of dollars in 2 weeks, 30 days, 90 day, etc., it further proves to me the reason why the internet marketing industry has gotten the bad reputation it has and everyone screams out "SCAM."  

PotPieGirl (aka. Jennifer Ledbetter)

I'm not passing judgment on anyone because I have fallen for the hype and the "shiny" new program plenty of times myself. All the while I was chasing the "newest" thing, I had the tools, training and information I needed all along.  Even though I still worked with the basics of what was taught in the original One Week Marketing Guide, I did not follow through with all of Jennifer's instructions and kept falling short of what I knew I could be accomplishing.  

With Google making all of its changes, Jennifer knew it was time to update the information and she has released the new One Week Marketing Private Training Center

The basics of OWM are still there and the "secret to making money on the internet" is really not so secret if you follow the instructions.  There is no way around it; if you want to work online, then you are going to have to "Work" at it and Pot Pie Girl gives it to you straight.

Fisher-Price Stride to Ride Walker

Fisher-Price Stride to Ride Walker

It's getting close to Christmas time again and people will be searching the internet for gift ideas for everyone in the family.  It does make it easier if you can find a few different opinions of an item you are thinking of buying for a child.  

Of course you can sometimes make a wrong decision with a gift. The important thing is to watch and see how the child plays with the toy; if it is difficult for them to play with?; does it have sharp places?;  should your child be a little older to use this toy?

Stargate SG-1: Children of the Gods

Stargate SG-1: Children of the Gods

Back in 1994, a new sci-fi movie was released called "just" Stargate.  It was a big hit and the Gross earnings was $196,600,000 (Worldwide).

Move forward a few years to 1997 and the small screen presented Stargate SG-1 which went on to run for 10 seasons.  

Stargate SG-1: Children of the Gods is a remake of the original episode which is claimed to be "the way it should have been" by the writer Brad Wright. There seems to be mixed emotions about this new version but as a true Stargate fan (although I haven't seen this version yet), I look to it as another exciting adventure in the series.

Christmas Toys For Boys

Christmas Toys For Boys

Sterling Silver Pandora Compatible Charm Bracelet

Sterling Silver Pandora Compatible Charm Bracelet

Most of the time, ever since you were a little girl, you were drawn to shiny, glittery jewelry and I'm sure that hasn't changed much at all since you have grown up.  Sometimes finances prevent you from getting exactly what you want, but there are alternatives. 

While you may not be able to afford the expensive "Pandora" bracelets and charms, there are less expensive and compatible bracelets you can buy and still feel that special feeling. Only you will know it's not the "real thing."

Comfy Lounge Pants That Look Like Jeans


Working from home, I like to be both comfortable and presentable in case I want to do a short video or attend a video conference.  The Comfy Jeans work for me.  Easy to slip on with no buttons or zippers and just throw in the wash.  I would suggest washing separately the first time just in case there is fading. I didn't have any fading, but you never know.

I've had people tell me that they look nice enough to wear when I go out but they feel too much like PJs to me, so I haven't worn them outside, but that's just me.  

Let everyone know what you think of the Comfy-Jeans.

Eulogy Speeches, Poems and Quotes

How To Write a Funeral Eulogy:

It is almost certain that some time in your life you will be asked to give a eulogy for a loved one who has passed on.  Giving a eulogy can be looked upon in a couple of different ways.


1.  You can look at it as an obligation. 
2.  The deceased may have requested that you give the eulogy.
3.  You may want to give the eulogy out of respect even though speaking in front of others makes you a nervous wreck. 

What ever your reason if you choose to give the eulogy, put your feelings aside and just remember the person and talk about maybe some funny or interesting experiences shared.  

Although it's a sad time, also remembering the person with laughter can also help you and others cope with the death and loss.

Hamilton Beach True Air Allergen-Reducing Air Cleaner

I am back to working with Squidoo lenses and loving it.  I created a new lens on the Hamilton Beach True Air Allergen-Reducing Air Cleaner

As a person who suffers from allergies, I am always looking for ways to help clean the air in my home so I can breath better.

After doing a lot of research, in my opinion this product would take care of the problem at a reasonable price.  There are many other products on the market, so this is just my suggestion

The one thing I like about this model is that it has a permanent filter.  No replacing filters, just cleaning the existing one.


  1. Hamilton Beach Air Purifier
  2. Hamilton Beach True Air
  3. Air Purifier and/or Filter
  4. Hamilton Beach Air Cleaner
  5. Consumer Reviews
  6. Looks Like A Great Product To Me
