Free Video Camcorder for tasting Progresso's Newest Soups!

MyBlogSparkTM sent me two of Progresso's four newest soups. I know fiber is important in my diet so I was impressed that these have 28% of our daily fiber intake per serving.

The new varieties (available in stores in August) include...
  • Chicken Tuscany
  • Creamy Tomato Basil
  • Hearty Vegetable and Noodles
  • Homestyle Minestrone

Today my husband and I ate both the Chicken Tuscany & Creamy Tomato Basil for lunch. I wasn't surprised that my favorite was the Chicken Tuscany and his was the Creamy Tomato Basil even though we loved both!

The "spark" for doing the taste test was quite a bonus. They sent me a Flip video camcorder to keep after videoing my review. How great is that!

Review of the American Patriot's Bible NKJV

I wish we had had the American Patriot’s Bible to use as a devotional tool when our children were growing up. As Americans our children should know that our founding fathers believed, “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.” That quote attributed to George Washington is among the hundreds of entries inserted throughout the pages of this beautiful study Bible. The inclusion and interspersion of historical documents makes it a wonderful addition to the classroom as well where the truth of our American history is allowed and encouraged.

I appreciate the thorough and easy to read subject index that allows a student to quickly find and focus on a particular time/subject in American history. Additionally, the quality of the paper used, easy to read script, the colorful drawings and overall presentation make it a joy to read. Dr. Richard G. Lee, the general editor along with Thomas Nelson Publishers is to be commended for this beautiful New King James Version Study Bible and the successful accomplishment of showing that, indeed, biblical truths and our Christian faith formed the foundation of America.
