Today, more than 150,000 people are working together to make Darden a global leader in hospitality. Through subsidiaries, we own and operate more than 1,500 restaurants and serve more than 320 million meals a year that create many lasting memories for our guests.
That last number reveals something telling about how we do business. In serving that many meals, we’ve come to know our guests extremely well. From them, we’ve realized what it takes to create an environment of natural hospitality and to build enduring brands. It’s why we’re able to make our guests feel so welcome, special and at ease.
Along the way, we’ve come to understand the restaurant business as well as anyone – if not better. We recognize that scale enables continued growth. Our scale allows us to have the best systems in the industry. We use them not simply to automate our restaurants for greater consistency, accuracy and efficiency, but to give our people time to make the human touch an even larger part of dining with us.
At Darden, strong values are just as important as business acumen and operational skills, and we have a solid track record of doing what’s right. Our employees give us more than 150,000 reasons to create a great place to work and to teach enduring life-skills. For our employees, doing what’s right means building talent and providing them opportunities to achieve their personal and professional dreams. It’s having the opportunity to do meaningful work at the highest level of quality. And outside the walls of our restaurants, it means serving our communities and doing our part to sustain the earth’s natural resources. Because at Darden, what you do matters.
Across every one of our unique brands and in every role, we’re creating a company that matters. We have ambitious plans and we’re confident that even better days lie ahead for Darden, not only as an industry leader but as a leader in business overall.

Well I don’t know whether you had noticed, but the price of groceries seems to have done nothing but go up and up recently. I guess the price of gas is the main reason, as most things are affected by the price of gas, due to transport costs.
Anyway, did you know it is possible to get a free grocery gift card? I have found this great offer from Consumer Incentive Promotions, where they will give you a free $250 Grocery Gift Card that you can use at your favorite grocery store. Simply select your favorite store, and enter your zip code, to see if you are eligible.
If you search around the internet you can find many deals to save money. Have you tried searching for printable grocery coupons? Always worth trying. You may have to spend a bit of time to qualify for the offers you can find, and only you can decide if it is worth your time, but if you are time rich, and money poor, you can save yourself a lot of money just by spending a bit of time looking.

Another way to save money on groceries is to look out for the deals that supermarkets run. If you are a canny shopper you can save lots of money by buying in bulk when your supermarket is running a deal on a product, and it will make your $250 Grocery Gift Card last even longer! Do remember though, that it is only a bargain if you would have bought it anyway, and are now getting it at a cheaper price.

The Earth's resources are limited and valuable, and we have an obligation to future generations to use these resources wisely.

High blood cholesterol is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease. Cheerios can help.
Cheerios is the only leading ready-to-eat cereal clinically proven to help lower “bad” cholesterol (LDL) when eaten as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.

In 1997, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a health claim linking the soluble fiber from oats – like that found in Cheerios – to a reduced risk of coronary heart disease.

In 1998, a peer-reviewed clinical study showed that eating three cups of Cheerios daily as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol can help reduce bad cholesterol levels.

Whole grain oats are a major ingredient in Cheerios. Cheerios has 1 gram of soluble fiber from oats per serving. And eating 3 grams of soluble fiber daily from whole grain oat foods – like Cheerios – along with a diet that’s low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.

When you bring a bunch of 5- to 8-year-olds around a breakfast table, you’re bound to hear some funny remarks about why big kids still love Cheerios.

Here are some of our favorites from our roundtable:   

1. The Cheerios fairy makes the holes with her wand.
2. Cheerios would vacation in Florida and jump into the deep end of the pool.
3. Cheerios makes for great lyrics in a song. 
4. A Cheerios monster would be a friendly monster.
5. If you plant a Cheerios piece in the ground, water and care for it, it will grow into a Cheerios tree that will make more Cheerios. Allegedly.

Kohl's Gift Card

Posted by Judy Morgan in No comments

Kohl's Corporation, is a American department store retail chain. The first "Kohl" store was a supermarket founded in 1946, and the first Kohl department store was founded in 1962. In 1972, British-American Tobacco Company took a controlling interest in the company and the Kohl family left the management of the company in 1979. A group of investors purchased the company in 1986 from British-American Tobacco and later took it public in 1992. It is currently the second largest department store by retail sales in the United States.

Kohl's wants to be easy on shoppers and tough on competition. It operates about 1,150 discount department stores in 49 states. Nearly half of its stores are in the Midwest and West, where Kohl's continues to grow while rapidly expanding into other markets.

Moderately priced name-brand and private-label apparel, shoes, accessories, and housewares are sold through centrally located cash registers, designed to speed checkout and keep staff costs down. Kohl's competes with discount and mid-level department stores.

Merchandising relationships allow Kohl's to carry top brands (NIKE, Levi's, OshKosh B'Gosh) not typically available to discounters; it sells them cheaper than department stores by controlling costs.

That’s because childhood pals Zach McLeroy and Tony Townley hadn’t invented it yet. They were still hanging out playing basketball at Zach’s, talkin’ trash and imagining it into being. They didn’t know much about the restaurant business. But they knew this much: the chicken they could find in Statesboro, Georgia, was okay, but not really fresh or zesty. 

 And the local wing joints were good, but couldn’t touch the wing joints where they went to school. Plus, none of the local chicken places were fun or had any personality. So they dreamed up Zaxby’s. Right there. On the basketball court. Between Zach’s missed foul shots and Tony’s bricks from 3-point land. The rest, as they say, is chicken history.

Get tons of great Dove® Skin Care products with a $100 Visa Gift Card.Dove's unprecedented Campaign for Real Beauty celebrates bodies of all shapes, sizes, colors, and ages. It employs plus-size models, women of different races and those with wrinkles and sun spots to inspire us real women to feel more comfortable in our own skin -- so to speak. Dove continually creates memorable, groundbreaking (and at times controversial) ads and commercials; they make pro-age beauty products instead of anti-aging ones; and now, with their "Movement for Self-Esteem", they're trying to reach a younger generation by helping instill confidence in adolescent girls. However, 13- to 93-year-old women can resonate with this poignant slogan for the movement: "Imagine a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety."

Dove has been trying to create this world since 1957, and apparently it's working because our readers continue to rave about their beauty products. Due to its longevity, this brand evokes nostalgia in some of our reviewers: One woman says, "I use Dove all the time and it reminds me of my home growing up and of my grandmother's house." Another woman says, "The scent smells the same as when my mom bathed me with this as a child."

 Here's what some other loyal Dove fans have to say:

"I love Dove! This is the one brand that I always use."

"The best lotion I've ever used. I believe I would pay double for this incredible lotion." 



"Since I first tried this hairspray three years ago, I have never used any other type or brand of hairspray."

"I can't believe I wasted all of that money for so long on the expensive salon brands."

"I've actually received more compliments on my hair with Dove than I did with the salon moisturizing products."
Get your own sample of Doritos on a prepaid visa card!
Doritos are the tortilla chips produced by the Frito-Lay Company. They were first manufactured in 1964. The name comes from the Spanish word "Doradito." It means, "turned golden or crisp." Doritos also means "little bits of gold" in Spanish. Every weight loss plan needs some leeway for indulgences. This can include Doritos if you have the discipline to stick to your diet at least six days of the week. Doritos nutrition for original nacho cheese Doritos will give you the information you need to make healthy choices.


One serving of Doritos chips is the equivalent of 1 ounce. Each serving is 150 calories. A 12-ounce bag of Doritos holds 144 chips. If you eat 2,000 calories a day, this is about eight percent of your daily caloric intake.


One serving of Doritos contains 8 grams of fat. 70 of its calories, per serving, come from fat. This equates to 12 percent of your recommended daily intake. 1.7 grams are saturated fat. It is suggested that up to 30 percent of your calories come from fat. The good news is Doritos chips are cholesterol free. If you eat one serving of Doritos, try to eat more fruits and vegetables with the rest of your daily meals.


You will get 17 grams of carbohydrates per serving. You need at least 225 grams of carbohydrates per day. One serving will give you six percent of your required daily intake. Eating the whole bag will exceed that amount. Any unused carbohydrate is stored as fat. Excess fat stored in your body can lead to obesity and clogged arteries. It is easier to maintain your weight than it is to try to lose weight.


12 chips contain 180 mg of sodium. Sodium helps to balance your body's fluids. Too much sodium may lead to high blood pressure, bloating, and hypertension. You should eat no more than 2,300 mg of sodium each day. An entire bag of Doritos will give you more than your daily-recommended amount of sodium. You can opt to dust off some of the spices before eating with a paper towel.


Doritos have 2 grams of protein per serving. Most of it comes from the cheese they use in flavoring for the chips. If your body has a protein deficiency, it may start to break down your tissues. It also weakens your immune system. Your growth may be stunted. Eating too much protein may lead to weight gain and dehydration. It may also lead to kidney failure.
The first tortilla chips were made at Disneyland's Casa de Fritos. They cut up unused tortillas and fried them like the Mexican totopos. Arch West, who was Frito-Lay's VP of marketing noticed how popular they were. Since then, Doritos has been the worldwide leader in corn-based chips. The most popular flavor is nacho cheese. Other flavors include inferno, cool ranch, toasted corn, and spicy nacho.

Axe for her - your favorite brand of awesomeness is not just for men anymore. Details apply. Now this is kind of insane.  Last week I received a locked briefcase from AXE in the mail with a note that read, “You’ll receive the code at our event next week.” For a few days this mysterious brief case sat in my studio as I pondered what was inside.  I was sent the code via email since I couldn’t make it to the event and have to admit, it took me a few minutes to try to figure out how to crack the damn thing open!  I felt like there should have been stacks of $100′s inside, but instead it was new AXE Anarchy products for men (as expected) and a surprise, one for women as well – Anarchy Body Spray for Her.  For her?

It was AXE’s first product for women.  I’m really excited for the brand as I think it’s a great idea for them to break into the women’s market.  Why not right? The body spray smells super light and fruity, great to toss into your gym bag.

Now I’m a huge AXE fan and love when Joe uses it.  There’s one in particular, Cool Metal Body Spray, that I’m obsessed with.  Seriously, it makes me crazy. I’d rather him use that than any cologne on a regular basis. However, I know the reaction wouldn’t be the same coming from him if I wore Anarchy.  My advice, wear it for yourself and as a daytime refresher, not for him.  I hope they come out with sexier scents for us that make the men come running! Remember this commercial?  Who doesn’t want the AXE effect?
 The Axe Anarchy For Her Body Spray, 4 oz gives you a fresh scent that lasts throughout the day. The brand that has long catered to men now offers a spray specifically for women. Anarchy For Her Body Spray comes in a unique pink and black lettered white can. It takes just a few seconds to spray on Anarchy Body Spray to give you a subtle, feminine scent. One spritz provides just the right intensity of fragrance for both women of any age. Just spray it on Axe Body Spray For Her, 4 oz for fragrance that lasts for hours.

Axe Anarchy For Her Body Spray:
  • A unique all-over body spray with a quality fragrance to keep you smelling great all day or all night

Get complementary Pet Food - with participation. The first commercially prepared pet food was a dog biscuit product introduced in England about 1860. Although the site was overseas, the ingenuity was Yankee. James Spratt, an electrician from Ohio, was in London trying to sell lightning rods. He saw dogs being fed left-over ship's biscuits and decided he could do better with a carefully compounded preparat­ion of wheat meals, vegetables, beetroot, and meat. 
 It was clearly a step in the right direction, for Spratt's company thrived selling food to English country gentlemen for sporting dogs. Since these early efforts to provide pets a more balanced diet, pet food makers have made continuous improvements in the nutritional efficacy of commercial pet foods. Today, advanced science and nutritional knowledge go into creating complete and balanced pet foods that result in pets living long, healthy lives.

The British public company that took over Spratt’s formula and production began a U.S. operation about 1890. Several domestic firms entered the market with their own formulations of fortified biscuits and dry kibble based on the nutritional knowledge of the day.
Canned horsemeat for dog food was introduced in the United States after World War I. In the 1930s, canned cat food and dry meat-meal dog foods were introduced. The 1950s saw the introduction of dry expanded type pet foods through the adaptation of equipment used in the production of breakfast cereals.

The ‘60s were marked with great diversification in the types of food available to the pet owner -- dry cat food, many more varieties of canned products, and new soft-moist products. The Nat­ional Research Council -- the research arm of the National Academy of Science, developed the first of several nutrient profiles based on research at leading universities, much of it sponsored by PFI or its member companies. The growth of the pet food industry not only provided pet owners with better foods for their pets, but also created profitable additional markets for American farm products and for the byproducts of the meat packing, poultry and other food industries which prepare food for our own consumption.

Free* Gerber baby food!Nestlé and Gerber have committed to improving baby and child nutrition through innovation backed by solid research. One of the most notable research efforts was the Gerber-sponsored Feeding Infants and Toddlers Study (FITS) conducted in 2002. This dietary survey of approximately 3,200 infants and toddlers 4 to 24 months old—the first undertaking of its size—significantly increased knowledge and understanding about how young children were really eating.

The results of the FITS study brought to light some key issues—notably that many toddlers failed to get adequate amounts of several important nutrients, including Vitamin E, Calcium, Iron, Potassium, and dietary fiber. In addition, it revealed that many toddlers weren’t eating even a single fruit or vegetable serving on a given day.

Nestlé conducted a follow-up FITS study in 2008 of 3,378 children, expanding the age range for infants and toddlers from birth to 48 months. Compared with 2002, the 2008 study showed that infants are being breastfed longer, and fewer children are consuming sweets and sweetened beverages. However, there’s still room for improvement in the diets of many toddlers and preschoolers. Many of their diets contain too much saturated fat and sodium, and they need more fruit, vegetables, and healthy fats.


As a result of the 2002 FITS study, Gerber developed a program to help children start and stay healthy.

Free Ugg Boots

Free Ugg Boots! Get your free pair now!In 1978, Brian Smith landed in Southern California with a bag of sheepskin boots and hope. He fell in love with the sheepskin experience and was convinced the world would one day share this love. The beaches of Southern California had long been an epicenter of a relaxed, casual lifestyle, a lifestyle that Brian felt was a perfect fit for his brand. So he founded the UGG brand, began selling his sheepskin boots and they were an immediate sensation.

By the mid 1980's, the UGG brand became a symbol of relaxed southern California culture, gaining momentum through surf shops and other shops up and down the coast of California, from San Diego to Santa Cruz. UGG boots reached beyond the beach, popping up in big cities and small towns all over, and in every level of society. Girls wore their surfer boyfriend's pair of UGG boots like a letterman jacket. When winter came along, UGG boots were in ski shops and were seen in lodges from Mammoth to Aspen.

The UGG brand began to symbolize those who embraced sport and a relaxed, active lifestyle. More than that, an emotional connection and a true feeling of love began to grow for UGG boots, just as Brian had envisioned. People didn't just like wearing UGG boots, they fell in love with them and literally could not take them off. By the end of the 90's, celebrities and those in the fashion world took notice of the UGG brand.

A cultural shift occurred as well - people were embracing, and feeling empowered, by living a more casual lifestyle and UGG became one of the symbols of this lifestyle. By 2000, a love that began on the beaches had become an icon of casual style. It was at this time that the love for UGG grew in the east, over the Rockies and in Chicago. In 2000, UGG Sheepskin boots were first featured on Oprah's Favorite Things® and Oprah emphatically declared that she "LOOOOOVES her UGG boots." From that point on, the world began to notice.

Lysol products can be found in millions of homes today but the products date back to the early 1900s. Lysol was first introduced as a disinfectant product by Lehn & Fenk, Inc. in 1918 during the time of the Spanish Flu. The product was advertised in newspapers and was purchased by many to prevent illness from spreading. At the time the product was sold for 25 cents for the small two-gallon bottle and 50 cents for the five-gallon bottle.
While the Lysol was associated with disinfectant products for the home, in the 1920s Lysol introduced a product that was meant to help with feminine hygiene. The product was meant to work as a birth control product, to help with vaginal odor and prevent infection. Since the 1920s the brand has evolved and no longer manufactures feminine hygiene products but has a whole variety of cleaning products for the home.

All of the Lysol products are available in a variety of scents that will fill the home with appealing scents during and after being cleaned with them. The Lysol products are all associated with a 99.9 percent disinfectant rate, effectively eliminating almost all viruses and bacteria, most notably the staph bacteria, on all non-porous surfaces.

Free Bare Minerals Naturally Luminous.Love. Understanding. Community. That’s what Bare Escentuals represents. It’s a trusted source. It’s the belief that products can actually be good, makeup can be fun, business can be personal and companies can behave more like communities.

It’s an optimistic outlook shared by women everywhere who believe that while makeup can’t change the world, it can change people. And people who are inspired can make all the difference.
It began when we asked women to imagine a makeup that would actually change the way they feel about their skin and themselves. 

We encouraged women to take a leap and try something so unique, so unlike anything they’ve experienced before. We started the idea that makeup could actually be considered skincare, and we got people talking. A makeup that could be good for you? The Bare Escentuals community was born. We became friends with our customers, forging deep, personal connections simply by listening and sharing stories.

It became less about makeup and more about what really matters.

At Bare Escentuals, we believe that giving is beautiful, and that the actions of each individual can collectively have the power to change the world. In March of 2007, we created our BE Cares corporate philanthropy program to support and bring awareness to organizations and initiatives that promote education, provide aid and increase one's self worth. We are committed to these ends by expressing our values and serving as ambassadors of change in our workplace and community of friends and family.
Get a years supply of Pepsi on a prepaid visa card.Caleb Davis Bradham was born in Chinquapin, North Carolina on May 27, 1867. He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and attended the University of Maryland School of Medicine, circa 1890. He dropped out of medical school because his father’s business was going bankrupt. After returning to North Carolina, Bradham taught public school for about a year, and later opened a drug store on the corner of Middle and Pollock Streets in downtown New Bern. 
He named the store “Bradham Drug Company” and, like many other drug stores of the time, housed a soda fountain. In 1893, Bradham invented “Brad’s Drink,” a blend of carbonated water, sugar, pepsin, kola nut extract, vanilla and “rare oils” at this location. On August 28, 1898, Caleb renamed his drink “Pepsi-Cola,” after a combination of two ingredients, “pepsin” and “cola”. 

He believed his drink was “healthy” as it aided in digestion much like the pepsin enzyme does. In 1898, Caleb Bradham wisely bought the trade name "Pep Cola" for $100 from a competitor in Newark, New Jersey that had gone broke. His assistant James Henry King, a young African American was the first to taste the new drink. 

In 1902, Bradham launched the Pepsi-Cola Company in the back room of his pharmacy and on December 24, 1902 the Pepsi-Cola Company was incorporated in the state of North Carolina. The business began to grow, and on June 16, 1903, "Pepsi-Cola" was officially registered with the U.S. Patent Office. At first, he mixed the syrup himself and sold it exclusively through soda fountains. 

That first year, Bradham sold 7,968 gallons of syrup, using the theme line "Exhilarating, Invigorating, Aids Digestion." He also expanded his operation by opening a second Drug Store at the corner of Middle and Broad Streets. Caleb soon recognized that a greater opportunity existed to bottle Pepsi so that people could drink it anywhere. In 1905, Bradham began selling Pepsi-Cola in six-ounce bottles and awarded two franchises to Charlotte and Durham, North Carolina. The following year, 15 franchises were awarded, with another 40 by 1907.


In 1910 there were 250 franchises in 24 states and in January of that year the Pepsi Cola Company held their first Bottler Convention in New Bern.

Caleb Bradham enjoyed 17 years of success with Pepsi-Cola. However, he had gambled on the fluctuations of sugar prices during WWI. He believed that sugar prices would continue to rise, but they fell drastically, leaving him with an overpriced sugar inventory. Pepsi Cola went bankrupt in 1923 and its assets were sold to Craven Holding Corporation for $30,000.
