Swago Olympic Rings Game Starts Monday! Register Now!

Have the summer games ignited a competitive fire within you? Take that inspired feeling and channel it towards completing your Olympic Rings Swago board next week!

Swago is a bingo-inspired promotion run by Swagbucks, a website that rewards you with points (called SB) for completing everyday online activities. You can redeem those SB for free gift cards. If you've never used Swagbucks, participating in Swago is a great introduction to the site because you can get extra bonuses for trying out all the activities as you complete your board.

If you didn’t participate in the last round of Swago, here’s what you need to know to get your 300 SB Bonus:

  • Starting Friday, August 19th head to your Swago Board and hit “Join” to pre-register. If you don’t hit “Join” you won’t get credit for completing the action items.

  • Swago will begin on Monday, August 22nd at 12:01am PDT/3:01am EDT, so sit tight and get ready.

  • Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete. They can be anything from getting a search win, earning SB in Surveys, or earning SB in nCrave.

  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.

  • You have a limited amount of time to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.

  • Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value.

  • Once you’ve achieved a pattern the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.

  • The game ends Monday, August 29th at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT. So make sure to hit “Submit” on the pattern you wish to submit. If you don’t hit “Submit” before the game ends you won’t receive your SB bonus.

Twice Betrayed by Wes Bundy -- A Review

You may recall that some months back I reviewed the newest book by Wes Bundy, The Bus Bench.  If you missed it and would like to take a look you can find it HERE.
Mr. Bundy graciously sent me his other 2 books, of which one was Twice Betrayed.

In Twice Betrayed we meet Kathryn Northcutt.  She is the daughter of one of America's wealthiest families.  She has led a very sheltered life due to being kidnapped as a child.
Eric Ryan, a college student studying to be a pharmacist has a chance meeting with Kathryn when their Limo had a flat.

From that day forward he could think of nothing but her.  A few years pass and Eric is now a pharmacist.  It so happens that medicines need to be delivered to the Northcutt's mansion.  Eric is excited to be able to deliver the medicines.  He includes a note to Kathryn in hopes that she will see it.  He reminded her of their chance meeting with the flat tire.

Kathryn did indeed receive the note, which ensued to quite a long time of them emailing each other back and forth.  Finally they get to meet in person.  Her mother, who she hated, disapproved but daddy liked Eric quite well.

Eventually they marry despite her mother's protests, but by doing so, her mother kicks her out of the family.  She has to go from spoiled rotten rich and having servants do everything to being poor and having to do everything for herself.

There is a whole myriad of things that happen throughout the book, including the death of both of her parents and some very revealing things in her mothers journals.
So much is going on that it makes this one of those books that you hate to put down as you want to know just what is going to happen next.

I admit to not liking the ending much.  The ending itself is nice, but it left me with questions....who was N?  Just what did they find in daddy's safe?   I wonder if Mr. Bundy will enlighten me?

I look forward to also reading and reviewing his other novel, The Devil in Butterfly Wings, next.

I am highlighting all 3 of his books on amazon here:

It sure seems this past week has flown by.  Things are so busy around our house with so many things, including school starting today.  Oh my!
