Now the sets are getting more detailed by talking about Baby Animals, The Solar System, Time and Continents and Animals. But now they have a new kit and it is designed perfectly for Kindergarten aged students, you can check it out here. Education is one of the most important things in life and you can help your toddlers get a head start with these great kits! I love that they have a telling time kit because it is one of the hardest concepts for students to grasp especially in this digital age. You can never start early enough giving your child or children the love for learning and setting them up for success that will last a lifetime!   Teach My is a Women Owned company all about helping parents spend quality time with their children through educational play.

These products can be found in nationwide retailers including Walmart, Toys R Us, Target.com and online on Amazon.

Kindle Giveaway

Imperfect Women is excited to bring you this awesome giveaway along with author Sandy James. This giveaway will feature Sandy’s latest romance novel, Can't Let Her Go. This new book in Sandy’s The Nashville Dreams series is on sale January 16th. Here is a little info on Sandy’s latest fabulous release:

In Nashville the music is louder, the dreams are bigger, and love can bring a cowboy to his knees. Ethan Walker is Nashville royalty. Born to the King and Queen of Country Music, he's spent his life trying to escape the spotlight of his parents' fame, even walking away from his own promising singing career. He's the kind of cowboy who prefers flannel to flashbulbs, hay fields to hit records, and the solitude of his horse farm to the nightlife along Music Row. The last thing he wants is attention, especially when it comes from country's latest star... Chelsea Harris's meteoric rise up the charts and string of celebrity boyfriends mean that wherever she goes, the paparazzi follow. A duet with Nashville's favorite son is exactly what her new charity album needs, but when she approaches Ethan, he turns her down flat. To win the camera-shy cowboy over, Chelsea will have to approach him on his terms. Trouble is, the more time she spends on his farm, the more Ethan wants to keep her there.

Thank a Soldier Giveaway

There are so many times in our lives that someone might not be thanked for what they do. It really doesn't matter what field you are in, or what you do as an occupation, we all liked to get thanked for what we do. While Tom over at Tom's Take On Things realizes this, he does want everyone to think about our soldiers in the U.S. Army, Marines, Air Force, Navy and the Coast Guard. Tom once was a soldier. He served in Desert Storm/Shield and completed his time of 6 years by doing the best that he could. He recognizes what a soldier gives up to help support and defend this land that we are in. He wants others to see it too. That is why this giveaway is dedicated to those who serve or served in the Armed Forces. Have you ever thanked a soldier for their service? Tom along with the help of bloggers promoting this giveaway like me would like to give everyone a chance to win this 16gb Dog Tag themed USB Flash Drive and a $10 Amazon Gift Card. Tom's Take On Things is responsible for prize delivery. This blog was not compensated for sharing this post. Giveaway ends 1/25 at 11:59 pm EST. The winner has 24 hours to respond to winning email.

A Look at Business

This is a sponsored post.

When I was growing up, I envisioned the world we lie in today, something like what you would see in The Jetsons.  Who knew how many things would actually be as automated as they are in this millennium.  Most everyone has a smart phone, a computer or some type of device that connects to the Internet.  Gone are the days of looking things up in an encyclopedia.  Google is the new Encyclopedia Britannica.

In today's business world, we have so many things that are automated.  Some say this has caused people to lose their jobs or a company does not hire as many people. I disagree with this.

I think businesses are thriving today because of technological advances.  I think factories are much more efficient making things and making them precisely.   This means the worker has to have much more skill to operate machinery and we are not using workers that do not have some type of college or technical school education.  More skills means more pay, which is good for the workers.

Think about all the types of businesses in the United States.   No matter if it is a large corporation or a small business, there is use of automation that makes the business much more proficient.  You do not have to wait several days for your colleague to get that contract in the mail.  You can send it in an email.   This frees up workers to be much more customer service oriented.  if you work in a car dealership,m you can close a deal in a few hours.  In 1980, you went to the car dealership and filled out all the paperwork and they called you a few days later to let you know if you had been approved for a  car loan.  I think this makes things much more personal when you can spend more time with your customers.  You earn their respect and trust, and that is key in a business.

The people that make those cars, whether they be engineers that come up with the design of the car,
 or the factory worker that puts it together,  cars of today are much more efficient.  Gas mileage, air bags, back up cameras,to name a few, are the advances we have made in automation of the car industry.

I think automation is great in your home.  I recently bought a new washer and I was totally surprised to find out that it uses hardly any water versus that monster that took 40 gallons of water or more to wash a load of clothes.  Our appliances are much more efficient with our natural resources.  This means we pay less  when we use less.  That is winning to me.  Check out this article by Andrew Charlton .  It talks about how why machines won't generate mass unemployment.  I agree with him 100%.  What do you think?  Leave me a comment and let me know.
