comments on BlendTec warranty, from me and BlendTec . . . part 1 of 2

I read some comments about BlendTec and VitaMix warranties on my blog when I returned from my long vacation. You can easily read the 7 reasons why I chose to promote the BlendTec Total Blender, instead of VitaMix (though I own both), here: http://greensmoothiegirl.com/best-blender.html.

$ billions spent on useless cholesterol drugs

Millions of Americans are taking Vytorin or Zetia for heart disease.   And yet, full results were finally released last week of a failed trial showing absolutely NO benefit from these drugs.   Two Congressional panels have launched probes into why it took drug makers almost two years to release results!   I could save […]

So I taped an episode of a major network reality TV show last August.   It’s really how this site got started: I was told  by the TV people they’d be flooded with emails of people wanting to reach me, so a friend told me I should put up a site.   It’s taken on […]
