Tips to Prevent Getting an Infectious Disease While on Vacation

Dr. Brent W. Laartz thought he was in for the ride of his lifetime when he set out on a horseback riding excursion in Costa Rica.

Isn't that the truth? I'd love to have this pay my bills but I'm still waiting for that. LOL
That is amazing! Although you wouldn't have to pay me to blog about Disney World. I think there are drugs in the water because my whole family is addicted to the place!
I would have to say my favorite perks are:

Fully paid family vacation
Patio Set

God I love my job!
Oh, iPhone? Jealous :)
Well, you have to remember that I've been doing this for seven years! Sheer longevity is sure to put me on someone's radar. Or sheer wonder that one of the dinosaurs is still around.
Those are definitely some really awesome perks Lori :)
LOL...Well, the iPhone is through Walmart;) My goal is too see if it can save me time and money. We shall see..........
wow that is amazing!!!!
I've made some blog friends I never would have met, and one of them is an aspiring blog designer and is working on giving my blog a facelift for free. Though, it's no Disneyworld.
What about perks that are not perks? Have you ever said "no thank you" to something bc it was just not a perk to you?

For example, I was offered a 3 month membership to an on-line video game for kids if I blogged about the video game. Thanks but no thanks - I don't need my kids playing something which - if they like - I will have to buy membership to in 3 months.
Oreck wanted to send me an upright vacuum and three swabbing kits so I could test my home before and after, send the kits to the lab, and write about it. After sending the vacuum back.

At Xmas, a battery company sent five toys and a boat load of batteries from their brand plus two competitors. They wanted me to test each brand in each toy for five hours and see which performed better. Five toys, three sets of batteries, five hours... I gave the toys to a shelter.
I think what a lot of Mom bloggers want to know is HOW did you get the perks? I was contacted by Mom Central about a month ago asking if I wanted to go to Disney on Ice and give away tickets on my blog. I have no idea how they got my name because I wasn't even a member of their site. And then last week Food Network emailed me and asked me if I would be interested in taking part in a telephone press conference with a FN host about an upcoming series. How did THEY get my name? I have no idea. It would be really great to know what I did to get their attention!
