One Of A Kind Pillow Cases For Mother’s Day

Full Disclosure. Sharon McIntosh besides being my wife is a talented quilter and for The Bumba Bazaar she has made beautiful pillow cases.


Did you know that each person can benefit from having their own special pillowcase? This week, I made one dozen pillowcases in a variety of prints for your pleasure. Each is made from100% cotton (US quality cotton) in a variety of bright patterns and colors?  These are completely washable. Cold water is best to keep the colors bright.  Toss them in the dryer.

There is no need to have your special pillowcase match the sheets or the room decor because it is as individual as you are. You will feel great each time you snuggle into bed with your very own unique pillowcase.

They are for sale at the Bumba Bazaar
Make your dreams sweeter.
 come pick a favorite one for yourself or a grandchild.
Cost is $18.50.  A percentage of each sale goes to benefit Cuenca Mujeres Con Exito.

Alexa – An update

It’s been almost 2 years since I purchased the Amazon Alexa enabled voice devices. The Echo is a cylindrical device with a fairly decent speaker. The dot is the size of a hockey puck that for really good music playback needs to be connected to a bluetooth speaker.

The reason I am writing this post is that a friend asked me what do I use  the Alexa devices in my daily life. I pondered for a minute and thought two years ago I used it for:

  • Amazon Music
  • News (NPR, BBC)
  • Weather
  • Spelling
  • Timers
  • Recipes
  • Find out what’s new on Netflix

Today, the novelty has worn off and I primarily use the devices for music and timers. I do believe that Alexa will blossom in homes with digital appliances (i.e thermostats, security systems, lights etc) will benefit from Alexa enabled devices. You can read more here 

If you’re an Amazon prime customer and an audiophile then Alexa enabled devices are for you. If you’re not- buy a better smartphone.
