About MacDonald’s Ranch

There’s something timeless about MacDonald’s Ranch. Maybe it’s that visitors can take a guided horseback ride through the desert, pose for an old-time photo, or ride a stagecoach—which in certain cases, might be held up by actors dressed as outlaws. But whatever the reason guests dock their zeppelin at MacDonald’s Ranch, the staff hopes to treat them to a fun ranch experience. They surround them with music, cowboy shows, and seasonal attractions such as the annual pumpkin festival.

MacDonald’s Ranch covers 1,300 acres of the scenic Sonoran Desert. Whether on horseback, train, or a hayride, guests can explore the area and view its desert flora, hawks, petrified spurs, and coyotes.”

Opening Saturday, September 17, Alien Worlds and Androids brings guests face-to-face with worlds far beyond their own, and introduces the technology that takes them there.

Produced by Global Experience Specialists (GES), Alien Worlds and Androids , a 5,000 square foot exhibition, has nine areas highlighting their studies and findings: Are We Alone, Looking for Life in Space, Alien Life on Earth, Artificial Intelligence and Robots, Robot Space Explorers, Explore the Solar System, The Robotization of Planet Earth, I-Cyborg, and The Human Microbiome. 
Sci-fi fans will appreciate how science fiction has inspired and influenced science, robotics and technologies.  Life-size replicas of Iron Man, C-3PO and R2D2 from Star Wars movies, and a replica T-800 bust from The Terminator franchise, produce great learning and “selfie” photo opportunities. Guests are encouraged to construct an alien, touch a meteorite, work with a robotic arm, and sit in a POD to experience the incredible journey CURIOSTY endured to land on Mars.”

My Favorite Deals at the Grocery Stores This Week!


It’s time once again for my favorite deals at the grocery stores! I’ve gotten a lot of e-mails lately from people who really like this post every week…I’m so happy it helps a little bit! Prices are good through September 20th.

Shop at Fry’s? Head over here to load a new coupon for $2 off your $40 purchase to your VIP card.

Download the Ibotta app here if you haven’t already. I used it a TON this week and had lots of fun earning bonuses. I got $42.50 back this week! You can get money back from your purchases at grocery stores  including Sprouts, Fry’s, Safeway, Whole Foods, WinCo Foods, Albertsons and more (think $8 back when you buy Markham wine (great name by the way), $.75 back when you buy Mini Babybel cheese, $2 back when you buy Flintstones gummy vitamins, $.75 back when you buy Reddi Whip, $.50 back when you buy Eggland’s Best eggs, $.25 back when you buy California strawberries, $.25 back when you buy bananas, $1.25 back when you buy the Eat Smart kale salad kit, and lots more)! This is one of the best ways I’ve found to save on produce. It’s super easy to use once you get the hang of it and makes shopping way more fun. You can use the app at the grocery stores and other stores and restaurants like Einstein Bros. and many others! The cash back is in addition to any sales or coupons you have, and it goes right into your Paypal account (or you can get gift cards). You just redeem the offer and upload a picture of your receipt.

Be sure to head over here to get to and print off as many coupons as you’ll use. September is almost gone so print the coupons you’ll use as they may be gone in October. (think $3 off Greenies pet treats, $1 off Kellogg’s Nutri Grain bars, $1 off Tazo tea bags, $2 off the Downy wrinkle reducer, $1 off Halloween candy, and lots more). There are over $740 worth of coupons to choose from…that’s money directly back into your pocket! Exciting, now you can print off your cell phone to a wifi printer! You can use coupons along with Ibotta  money back!
