T’was the week before Christmas, and the house was a clutter.
Not a creature was helping, not even my daughter.
Her husband sat snacking alone in the chair
The dope’s in the way of the vacuum, with no apparent care.
The grand-kids are nestled in front of Youtube,
While violent videos sometimes flash a bare boob.
Papa still curses the old Christmas lights,
As he untangles the mess that once gave delight.
When out in the drive FedEx skids to a halt,
I sprang from the kitchen with a bucket of salt.
Away to the door I flew in a flash,
Tore open the door and nearly tripped on the trash.
The driveway was a glistening with new-fallen snow
On top of glare ice, one’s footing could go.
No law suit for us on this pre-Christmas Day,
Just sign for the package that will make someone gay (not that kind of gay!).
The little old driver was so lively and quick,
I thought in that moment he could be … a Nick!
More rapid than eagles the kids came a running,
In hopes that their present was just arriving!
“Now Danny! now, Doug! now, Patsy and Vivian!
Go, Cynthia! Way, Cathy! Forget it Debbie and Justin!
Get back to your entertainment, and stay out of the hall!
Now look away! Look away! And get away all!”
…. And so the story of a family Christmas goes,
May your work be evenly divided, and may you find the time,
To share in the delights of your family being together.
… And may our BlowMeCool be with you.
We were proud yesterday to we will join in the mission of CureDiva, the first ever personalized lifestyle solutions online shop for women facing breast cancer. BlowMeCool will join CureDiva in helping to improve the lives of women facing breast cancer at each phase of treatment by offering its signature product, the BlowMeCool mini-fan.
BlowMeCool’s mini-fan was designed to quietly deliver a powerful, soothing stream of air to provide relief from Hot Flashes while the fan sits “hidden” in the hand. This allows women to be more discreet when they want to manage annoying hot flashes with more style and grace. By helping women to discreetly manage Hot Flashes, BlowMeCool seeks to be one small part of the solution for women facing cancer treatments. No more having to suffer through a chemo hot flash.
Women have shared with us that an immediately accessible, yet subtle method to cool and dry during hot flash episodes is important to them. Also, women have told us that they don’t want to broadcast the fact that they have reached that certain stage in life, and that it’s important for them to have some grace when keeping cool. “I saw too many women grab for anything available and frantically fan away at the air in an effort to cool their face and head,” says Brian Burge. As our slogan suggests, we think that it’s important to “Be cool when you’re hot”.
Men experiencing andropause, as well as, young women have tried the fan and agree that it is an inexpensive way to stay dry. After dancing, exercise, or any activity or environment that raises the body temperature BlowMeCool delivers relief. BlowMeCool Inc., is delighted to learn that users are also discovering our small rechargeable fans have a wide range of uses; and that there are many situations when a “friendly little fan” is good to have handy.
Regarding of our name: The name BlowMeCool describes in one word exactly what the product does.
Now CureDiva is the first ever, personalized, lifestyle solutions store, for women coping with Breast Cancer. It is a one of a kind, high-end shopping & community platform that provides women, at every treatment phase, with all of their non-medical needs.
Today, it’s so hard to know what is available and where to find what you need, throughout each of the treatment phases. Created by single mother and breast cancer survivor, Efrat Roman, CureDiva offers all of the answers and products in one fashionable & stylish place, along with community support; helping women feel like “Divas” before, during and after treatment. Visit http://www.CureDiva.com for more information. I think it is rather important to have sensible solutions that can help at every stage of recovery and our BlowMeCool fan is just part of that. If we have done a small part in helping someone then we have done our job.
Unfortunately, the cold winds of winter do not mean that my hot flashes are defeated and a thing of the past. It just means that I have more choices on how to cool myself. Nevertheless, since removing my sweater and stepping outside to face the cold north wind are not always possible – I still keep my BlowMeCool mini-fan available in my purse….. I’m just saying.
