Howdy, folks. Working from home today, awaiting Ed the carpenter's arrival. He's putting French doors in the family room, in case you were wondering. Aren't you glad I share the minutia of my life with you? My husband always says, "Do you have to tell everyone everything?" Well, what can I say? Here are more product ideas I'd like to share with you too. Enjoy this edition and send any feedback directly to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. It may be published in a future issue of Advantages magazine. For free information on products featured in Advantages, click here: www.advantagesinfo.com.

Some Like It Hot The Pitch: I don't know about you, but I like my coffee steaming hot. Molenaar LLC (asi/71980) has the perfect product: The Magic Can ‘n Cup Cover (item #6017) is made from silicone and has a handle that can be used as a spoon rest or to hold a business card, etc. Pricing starts at: 150; $2.23-R. This is a cute idea for coffee shops and restaurants and anyone who wants to create a buzz. You can see this new product here: http://www.miline.com. The Bottom Line: Put a lid on it.
Flip It Good The Pitch: When I think back to the videocamera we bought when our first son was born (20 years ago on June 6!!!), I can't believe we used to haul that heavy, bulky thing around. New parents today don't realize how good they have it (this sounds like it's turning into one of those "and I walked 20 miles to school" tirades, doesn't it?) … at least as far as their methods of capturing their precious angel's every move goes. Flippromo(asi/54657) offers item FPHDV007, a sleek, compact high-def digital video and still camera. It has a pop-out USB connection for easy uploading too. This is a nice item for any incentive program. Pricing starts at: 25; $144.95-R. See it here: http://www.flippromo.com. The Bottom Line: Small wonder.
Water World The Pitch: You know I like to peruse the Internet daily for interesting tidbits.
This morning I came across an article: "15 Tricks to Fight Your Stubborn Cellulite." I was intrigued. (Sorry, male reader friends; you just wouldn't know, but when I come across ways to reduce beer bellies, I will also report; for now, let's just say drink less beer.) Anyway, one of the ways seems logical enough: Drink more water. RFG Line (asi/82283) has a cool new 24-oz. Soft Touch stainless-steel water bottle. Think of hikers, campers, campgrounds, special events, bike races, charity runs, health fairs and, of course, ladies battling cellulite. Pricing starts at: 144; $7.85-R. Click here: http://www.rfgline.com. The Bottom Line: Drink up.
Warm Fuzzies The Pitch: Warm Whiskers (asi/98100) encourages you to heat up your bunny -- not in a Glenn Close, Fatal Attraction sort of way. No, no, no, the supplier offers an adorable bunny body wrap, filled with 100% natural buckwheat and lavender for soothing hot or cold therapy. Put it in the microwave or freezer, whatever the ache or pain calls for. Think about these for pediatricians and pediatric wards, daycare centers and more. Adults, too, would love to cuddle with one of these. I know I would. Pricing starts at: 250; $35-P. For more information on item BW1152, email: email@example.com. The Bottom Line: The cuteness factor.
