The VTech DS6421-3 Phone System has features I didn't know I wanted and love, until I had them! What I like best though is the look of this phone.

“On the Road Again….”

"That's not sooo bad."  "Well, it could be worse." Not exactly what you want to say to yourself when you step on the scale, but it's what I've been saying for the last few weeks. I had been holding steady at my 20 lb. weight loss for months, then personal stresses had me eating for comfort and convenience.  That's my downfall - eating healthy food and healthy portions takes time and concentration.  If I slip into avoiding the effort of … [Read more...]
