My thoughts;

It’s been a couple of years since my husband and I made the decision to turn off our house phone. Once our daughter was old enough to have her own cell phone, it just felt like we were throwing away money with each passing month. It sounded like a great idea at the time, and I haven’t fully regretted our decision, but there have been a few times I’ve missed that phone line. netTak has not only filled the gaps where our cell phones just haven’t been ideal, due to no signal (our family room is in our basement) or comfort (I often disconnect my cell calls somehow with my cheek), but I have been able to lower my cell phone package too. There is no use paying for the minutes we no longer use, thanks to netTalk.

Blockbuster Stores Across The Country Hosting THE HUNGER GAMES Release Party

Fans who pre-order The Hunger Games DVD or Blu-Ray at their local Blockbuster through August 15 will receive a free exclusive Hunger Games poster and be invited to attend a special release party at their local stores. Party runs from 9:00pm to Midnight.

Attendees at the Novi, Mi Blockbuster will be treated to THE HUNGER GAMES survival food, a screening of the movie in store, trivia contests for prizes, a special Tribute mini-makeover and learn self-defense techniques for the arena.

Find your store locations here:

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
