1 c. milk (or soy milk)
2 c. frozen fruit, your choice (Aldi is cheapest)
1/2 c. yogurt (I've been using vanilla Greek yogurt for the protein)
1 packet vanilla instant breakfast if desired or protein powder
Add more milk if the smoothie is too thick. All amounts are estimates. Each smoothie will give you 2 servings each of fruit and dairy...and they are amazing!

-John talked about the website he used to find a hotel for his vacation last week. It is along the lines of Priceline and Hotwire where you don't know the name of the place, but you get an excellent price, and they do show you pictures before you buy it. John saved 50% off the rate that was being offered directly from the hotel. The website is http://www.lastminutetravel.com/.

Q: Be careful eating this food because trace amounts of cyanide are found in it's seeds. Which food is it?
-John and his family spent their vacation in Orlando last week. He found some handy smartphone apps that helped them navigate Disney World. One of them is Disney Parks Mobile Magic available for $1.99. It includes park maps, character greeting times, attraction listings, restaurant reservations and more. Another one is called Disney World Lines. You have to buy an $11 membership at http://www.touringplans.com/ to use it, but it is well worth the money. This app gives you ride wait times and suggested park itineraries to make the best use of your time there.
