Don’t Toss Anything out before Looking It up on WorthPoint!

What are those items worth that you have laying around the house? Don’t just toss them out before looking them up on WorthPoint. This site has a history going back 10 years showing what items have sold for. By researching all those “old toys” the kids don’t play with anymore, you may be surprised at how much VALUE they have. For example, a Fisher Price family sold for over $9,000. in 2013! Crazy! Go ahead and enjoy a free 7 day trial:

Precision Probiotics!

The probiotics industry is the wave of the future. In the past 3 or 4 years, humans have discovered that your health, as well as diseases unexplainable by genetics alone, like obesity, lupus & diabetes, are all linked to the unique environment created by the microbes in your gut. The problem is that there are no good systems in place to help you get the probiotics you need. So you’re at your local supermarket’s probiotic section stocked with hundreds of different brands of pills & supplements & all you’re looking for is something that can improve your digestive health. Would you stay for long if you knew that 85 percent of the supplements that you’re looking at won’t survive your stomach & will never make it to your gut? Even if you did know which products survive, how would you know which ones to take? There are over 1,000 species of microbes in your gut & every human’s microbiome profile is unique. That’s why Sun Genomics started! At Sun Genomics, they examine your gut bacteria, determine precisely what your gut environment looks like & provide you with probiotics tailored to your unique profile. It’s precision probiotics. They test for gastric survival & harness the power of your microbiome so that you can flourish.

5 Recommendations to Keep Your Children Protected

  1. Never allow your children to keep a cell phone turned on under their pillow while they sleep.
  2. Teach your children the 2 inch rule (distance from their head) when talking on the cell phone. Use speaker and microphone.
  3. Train your children to carry the phone away from the body in a back pack, handbag, purse, gym bag, etc. and not against their body. Their phone still transmits signals even when not talking.
  4. Encourage safe texting versus talking with the phone unless the phone has a bio shielded phone case with protection on the front of the phone. See for description.
  5. Teach your children not to use the phone in a metallic enclosure area as in riding in a car, plane or train. Cell phones boost radio transmitting intensity to connect to tower which would also traveling into the brain.

I researched and designed a phone case using the correct materials that is not only beautiful, but protects your entire family from the cell phone radio signals directed towards the brain and body. For more information, please visit Fb: CruzCases

2015 MOM Resolution Solution: “Cookbook for Getting Your Kid to College”


You CAN Run a Business from Home!

“Fresh & Juicy News MOMS Use” at is 5 years STRONG next month! To celebrate this milestone, Motherstucker is sharing TOP TIPS for running a successful business from home.

I. Manage Your Time: Set a Schedule & Stay Organized

One of the freedoms of running a home business is having a flexible schedule. While beneficial, this flexibility can hinder the success of your home based business if you don’t properly manage your time. Set a work schedule that outlines your office hours. Organize your files — both in your computer & your paper files — so that everything is easy to find. Use color coding for file folders to make them easy to recognize. Printed labels, which you can create with your computer or a separate label-maker, help readability.  Also, make sure to schedule conference calls at appropriate times. Never schedule a client conference call when the UPS delivery driver is set to arrive!

II. Network!

Reach out to others in YOUR industry & related industries! Find a mentor! Become a mentor! Here are a just a couple of Motherstucker’s Favorites to connect with on social media!

  1. Martin J. Stallone – Executive Vice President of Land Development at Metropolitan Development Group Inc. –  Cornell University.

2.  Tim Savage – VP Social Content and Strategy, SocialToaster & Founder of 16 Agency – SocialToaster, Inc. West Chester University of Pennsylvania.

3.  Don’t forget to connect with ME! Motherstucker Christy Stucker – Brand Strategist, – University of Kentucky.

III. Stay Competitive!

To stay ahead of your competitors, keep informed of the changes in your market & your customers’ preferences, so you can adjust your business’s products &/or services accordingly. “Don’t try to shy away from the fact that you run your business at home,” says Maria Rapetskaya, cofounder of Undefined Creative, a home-based design & animation studio. “Give your potential clients the rundown of why it benefits them — like low overhead.”

A huge part of staying competitive is promoting a professional image! Attend trade shows, industry events, & conferences.  You may work from home, but how you conduct business should be as professional as any business office protocol dictates. This includes having well-designed & written promotional materials! Belonging to an industry trade group or local business organization & participating in activities that support nonprofit groups in your area, will enhance your public relations image. Your business’s image is a reflection of your ethics & the products/services you produce.

Get after it Otherstuckers! Good Luck!

Bacterial water contamination is a global problem affecting hundreds of millions of people. In the US alone, 15 million households get their water from private wells, which are not covered by EPA regulations. These wells are susceptible to various environmental contaminants including seepage through landfills, failed septic tanks, underground storage tank infection, fertilizers and pesticides. The scary part? The problem extends beyond private systems to the public water supply. Further, MOST pools and hot tubs are contaminated beyond acceptable limits.

Water quality testing and monitoring is about to get a major upgrade thanks to a promising new company based out of Ontario, Canada. Bringing together the use of mobile, nanotechnology and predictive software, ExactBlue Inc. has just released a new device enabling users to screen their own water for unsafe levels of microbial contamination. This disruptive technology offers a quick and easy solution to water testing that is able to detect 50 TIMES more bacteria and fungi than the traditional laboratory method. Further, this solution reduces testing time from WEEKS TO MINUTES. The Exact Blue team recently launched a Kickstarter campaign, inviting companies, non-profit organizations and individual consumers to learn more about the new device and its water testing capabilities.

How the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse Can Help Your Family Prepare for the Unexpected

T-7 Days until the  first total solar eclipse in the continental U.S. in 38 years! Motherstucker & Family have been BUSY preparing for this event happening on August 21st & will be headed directly to the path of totality. Where exactly? The perfect location for our family + friends remains to be seen (somewhere between  Clinton SC & Newberry SC) – However, we have all the gear needed & are prepared for the unexpected!

Emergency managers in South Carolina are planning for an estimated influx of more than one million visitors (just into South Carolina alone)!) for several days on either side of the eclipse. Experts advise to expect nearly everything to be above capacity for nearly a week total. Residents, businesses, & visitors should all be prepared for this historic event by keeping safety in mind.

ECLIPSE ( & Beyond!) TIPS:

•Traveling out of town with friends/family in separate vehicles? Make sure all cars in your party have walkie talkies to communicate as South Carolina & others states in the path of 100% totality cell phone towers’ could jam. State officials urge, “Be prepared for cell service overloads; there may be service disruptions due to the increase in visitors using networks.”

•Have bottled water, sunscreen, first aid kit, bug repellent, toilet paper & certified eclipse viewing glasses for every person in your party.

•Everyone in the continental U.S. will see at least a partial eclipse! Carry a digital watch  with accurate time (set on the day of eclipse).

•Bring ALL the tail-gate amenities including comfortable folding chairs or picnic blanket to sit on, a shade tent, table, games + extra batteries!

•Wear suitable clothing & a large brimmed hat (you will be outside in the sun for several hours) + sunglasses (not for direct viewing of partial or full solar eclipse phases).

•Fill your car up with gas & buy groceries before the weekend.  Bring a portable grill, extra fuel & sandwiches + snacks family/friends can enjoy! Don’t stop there! Start thinking about food storage needs for future preparedness from Patriot Supply & the Survival Seed Vault! The next Total Solar Eclipse will not occur until May 11, 2078 & while must of us won’t be around to appreciate that one,  having the necessary supplies on hand in the event of a disaster could be life saving!

• Kick Back & Enjoy Otherstuckers! “Travelers should be at their observation location a minimum of a couple hours before totality,” advised the Federal Highway Administration. “The role of state and local DOTs may include instituting roadblocks or other measures to keep people from making illegal turns as they drive around looking for ‘the perfect spot’ as eclipse totality nears.”
