I’ve been MIA on blog, now back

I’m a business owner and recently re-launched my two products this past January, Cold Sores Begone Stick™ and Canker Sores Begone Stick™.  Unless you’re a small business owner, you can’t imagine all the work, obstacles, long hours, no vacations – in fact no days off and, hopefully, eventual joy with a product (or service) that both improves the quality of someone’s life and allows me to make a living.

If you are prone to cold sores (outer lips) or canker sores (inside mouth), you’ll be interested in this.

You know that ‘tingle’ when you feel a cold sore coming on? Cold Sores Begone Stick™ is now an all natural balm stick. Apply at the early warning symptom to instantly prevent your cold sore from surfacing, even if on-the-go.  Cool?  www.ColdSoresBegone.com

Or are agonizing canker sores inside the mouth the problem?  How about a remedy that’s all natural, doesn’t sting, and typically heals the canker overnight, or perhaps in a day or two.  Canker Sores Begone Stick™, a soft balm stick, is small enough to always keep with you, and starts to soothe immediately. www.CankerSoresBegone.com

 

 

Not to worry, both are organic and safe even for very young children.

Both items available now in all Mother’s Market locations, and soon, Sprout’s Farmer’s Market. Otherwise, they can be purchased from the websites.

MIssion Viejo’s Apple Ranch Market now closed

ImageLook’s like another one’s bit the dust.  The Apple Ranch Market is now closed. They were located in the shopping center at Alicia & Jeronimo.  It’s been difficult for any business to success in that location since Coco’s Restaurant 9 or so years ago. 

Lake Mission Viejo’s Tortilla Flats, recently re-named Lago, has closed

Tortilla Flats in the Lake Mission Viejo Shopping Center, which was renamed Lago last summer, has shut their doors.  A sign on the front door reads “Due to unfortunate circumstances, the restaurant is closed”.

Lake Forest’s Sultan Market now El Toro Marketplace & Kitchen

Old owner, new name with middle eastern restaurant inside.  The food looks yummy, prices appear very reasonable.  They also offer a whole rotisserie chicken, $5.99.  The day I was there, there were a few organic items in the produce department.

They have a meat counter, but no fish.

Peppino’s Italian Restaurant to become Lyoness Loyalty Merchant

Image

This popular chain restaurant in south Orange County has recently signed on with the Lyoness Shopping Network.  As with all Lyoness loyalty merchants, Lyoness members will soon be able to save and make money when patronizing all four Peppino’s locations – Mission Viejo, Aliso Viejo, Lake Forest, and Foothill Ranch.

I’ll post again when they’re up and ready with ability to scan Lyoness membership cards and when it’s confirmed what the cashback and loyalty benefit amounts will be.

My new favorite pizza in the entire world, at Brizio’s Pizza, Lake Forest

Last night, my friend and I had a yen for some pizza, and looking for coupons to get a cheapie. We found one for a restaurant neither of us had been to before, Brizio’s Pizza, offering a 14″ Chicago Style Pizza (somewhere between thin and thick crust) with one topping, $11.

Image

Oh my gosh!  We both loved it!  We got to talking to some of the other customers, their favorite, too!

Image

When I love or dislike something, I’m prone to spread the word. Another reason to support this wonderful small restaurant — they have a sign out front, “Free pizza for the homeless on Monday’s, 3-5 pm”.

And they deliver, $2.50 fee.
