A Little Help, Please?

Ahhhh~ the power of blogging!

I have a little project I need some help with...

We own our own business. (I would insert a logo here...but BLOGGER isn't allowing me to upload photos today!) Blogger...I'm sticking my tongue out at you right now.

So...anyway~ we have a web page (landing page) for our business and my husband would like some feedback on it.

American Home Services, Inc.

We are in the Home Remodeling industry, and we do a couple of different things. This project involves the branch of our company that helps consumers find qualified, professional contractors for their home remodeling project.

Here's the deal. I'm asking for you to take about 5 minutes, look at the web page & answer a few questions. I am not attempting to sell you anything~ no purchase will be required or solicited. I am only asking for honest feedback & some constructive criticism.

How this will work:
Email me at allthepiecesofme(at)live(dot)com to let me know you would be willing to offer some feedback. I will send you an email back with a link to the web page and a few questions to answer.
Take a look at the web page, answer the questions and send me an email back. Easy, peasy.

The Cherry on Top: Giveaway is Now Closed. Winners will be announced this weekend. (Remember to return your feedback to me so you can be entered in the drawing. If you have requested a survey from me but haven't gotten it, please let me know!!!)

Because I love ya, and I really appreciate your help with this project, I'll be doling out a few little prizes for participators~ I'll be giving away 3 prizes

Two of: Printable of your choice from My Computer is My Canvas (excludes Gift Certificate or Pick 3,4 or 5 files)

One of:  Gift pack from Udderly Fresh Goat Milk Soap (soap, lotion bar & lip balm of your choice)

*To be entered in the drawing for prizes, you must email me back a completed feedback survey. The first 5 people to provide feedback via email will have their name entered twice.

Okay? Ready....Set...Go!

Hamburger Soup

I used to make this soup all the time when my kids were younger, but I  hadn't made it for a while.
It's easy and yummy!
 I had forgotten how much we like it!
It is very similar to Connie's Vegetable Soup.
The recipe is from one of my favorite cookbooks:
"Managing Your Meals" by Winnifred Jardine

Hamburger Vegetable  Soup
1 pound lean ground beef
2 onions, chopped
4 cups water
1 can (28 ounces) tomatoes (I like petite diced) or 1 qrt. bottled tomatoes
5 medium potatoes, pared & cubed
3 large carrots, peeled & sliced or cubed
1 tsp. salt
1 bay leaf
2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, cubed

In a large pan, brown ground beef with onion.
Add remaining ingredients, except the cheese.
Simmer, partially covered, until vegetables are tender, about 1 hour.
Just before serving, garnish with cheese cubes.
Makes 8 servings.

Hope you enjoy!

“The witness of the Holy Ghost,
As borne by those who know,
Has lifted me again to thee,
O Father of my soul.

I know that thou art in thy heav’n.
I know the Savior reigns.
I know a prophet speaks to us
For our eternal gain.

My eyes are wet; my heart is full.
The Spirit speaks today.
O Lord, wilt thou my life renew
And in my bosom stay.

As testimony fills my heart,
It dulls the pain of days.
For one brief moment, heaven’s view
Appears before my gaze.”
~Loren C. Dunn

Today was a fabulous Testimony Meeting. Not anything special other than Pure Testimony being shared. And that really is something special, isn't it?
