HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

There is nothing worse or mas pesado than having a child who is sick- excepto knowing that you could have prevented it.  Babushka jugar con eso?  JU SO FONII!!! That's why she had The Trio covered by Florida KidCare .

Sick children es algo serio. On many levels. Besides the obvious, this is what the local school board says about them. "Absences" right there on page 2, lo primerito is:

PARENTS' RESPONSIBILITIES AND RIGHTS
 1. Parents send their children to school in good health.

 Wow and Woah. And then they go on to add that "Official documentation from a third party is required for five (5) or more absences in a nine week grading period." So even with doctors notes, mas que 5- preparate!!

florida kidcare regular visits checkups

Si Beautifuls, prepare yourselves and your little ones. As they say, "Prevention is worth a pound of cure." And you can't have better prevention than regular check-ups, both with the medical doctor as well as the dentist.  Florida KidCare  is designed specifically with kids in mind. Florida KidCare benefits include but are not limited to:
  • Doctor Visits
  • Checkups
  • Dental Care
  • And much more! .

Having a toothache doesn't let you concentrate on anything else, so even if your little one braves going to escuela, chances are they won't be putting much attention on their lessons.  Es mas, a national survey showed that 1 in 7 children between the ages of 6-12 had suffered a toothache in the last 6 meses!! Beautifuls, learn the lesson BB went through and join Florida KidCare.  Covering both medical y dental is one less thing you have to worry or think about. One place for your children's health coverage, always available and ready for you.  With year-round open enrollment, the time apply for Florida KidCare coverage is always now! Apply HERE.

And The Tony for best performance is... Customer Service Reps!

Tony Award for Customer Service Call Center



HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!!

Hoy Babushka speaks of a world little appreciated, often complained about, and definitely made fun of- Customer Service, in particular the Call Center. As a veterana of this environment with over 10 years served, BB will illuminate un poquito of the nature of this world.  

Note Babushka used The Tony Award, an award for LIVE theatrical performances. THAT's the premio equivalent to what CSRs do. No recorded conversations here. Stamina, persistance, perserverance DAILY.  To be cheerful and effective over 50 times a day, EVERY DAY. 

customer service expectations


THIS is what Customer Service Reps have in mind, what they've been trained to think of and accomplish on every call.  Wow and Woah verdad? 


keep calm excellent customer service

Ahora, eso si. Is it possible to do all the time on every call?  JU SO FONII!!! But ya gotta give them points for trying. And they really do try, for many reasons. Pride in their work, honestly wanting to help, it's their livelyhood, muchas razones to be personable y profesional. Y aunque callers tend to forget there is a persona de carne y hueso on the other side, the demeaner of a good CSR is courteous and caring.  Of course as they say, "You get more flies with honey than with vinegar." so you try to be nice too and BB guarantees your call will stand out and help will be gladly given and with more sincerity.

customer service lily tomlin

Si Beautifuls, this is definitely verdad- both for you AND the CSR,

customer service quote

As previously stated BB, having served more than 10 years in the Call Center Arena she knows this mundo. VERY well. 


DUMB is not the problem, RUDE is.


  Es mas, just recently returned to that mundo and worked para"steady income" for a state division that truly is an example of- 


even got kudos- so BB hasn't lost her touch.


Pero what BB no longer has es el estamina to do over 50 performances a day.


Babushka ended up exhausted.

work meme

Babushka's a good actress, pero THAT Tony award goes to others. Dure 5 months.


To quote Steve Jobs-

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.


Babushka doesn't settle and at this altura knows herself very well.
Advancing age no matchea with status quo.
At least, not in this Babushka's Baile.

; )

Babushka Besos a todos. Cuidensen.

BB Cares for #FloridaKidCare Porque They Cared for My Florida Kids! #sponsored

This post has been sponsored by FloridaKidCare and happy to share BB's opinions de ellos.





HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

BB was a single mother with The Trio, and Florida KidCare was a blessing from el principio.  Affordable insurance was one less thing to worry about; it felt wonderful knowing they were going to have their basic cares met. Now that The Grands are here, Babushka's relieved to know that this program is still aqui for Florida's children.





Importante Bullet Points to Know:
  • Florida KidCare covers doctor visits, immunizations, prescriptions, emergencias, surgeries, dental, vision, y mas!
  • Most familias pay nada and many pay as little as $15 or $20 per month for all children en la casa- even if both parents work.
  • Chances are you'll be able to keep your current doctores.
  • 95% de padres are happy with services received. BB sure was!




"257,000  children  in  Florida  are  currently  living  without  health  and  dental  insurance  and  147,000  of  them  are   eligible  for completely free  or  low  cost  coverage  through  Florida  KidCare." Babushka not be grateful she applied? JU SO FONII!! One of the few things BB never doubted as a madre.

3x a Charm w/ @Disney #Cars3 #95 -Not Just For Kids.

Babushka was given a digital copy of Cars3 and party goods by Allied Contigo to facilitate this post   All opinions stated are BB's.




HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!


Hoy, BB had a viewing fiesta for Cars 3 and to share con ustedes some of the features in the Blu-Ray that's coming out on November 7.  Of course Babushka will be doing it a little diferente and con otro angle.  This is definitivamente a pelicula with many nuances and mensajes that will be missed by children , y aunque my MIL still sees Sweetie & BIL as her babies, this was an adult fiesta. Porque Si, adultos love Disney/Pixar. Especialmente en esta casa. Pero primero, la viewing fiesta.

Disney Cars 3 Viewing Party

viewing party buffet for Disney Cars 3
Gracias to Allied Contigo for sending party decorations, my Eldest, Cristyl's Corazon for making all the foods following a Cars theme, and to Sweetie for making sure there were no leftovers.   ; )  


Once we had gotten our comida, todos settled in to watch the pelicula, looking forward to the continuance of a favorite. Even Lightning McQueen settled to follow the adventures of  Cars 3.


"Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is
suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez , with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage"

Race fans of all ages are invited to ride along with the “Cars 3” crew for hilarious and heartfelt extras, including an exclusive new mini-movie, “Miss Fritter’s Racing Skoool,” taught by the queen of the Crazy 8; a feature detailing how real-world race training influenced filmmakers; the journey taken by voice actor Cristela Alonzo and team while shaping tech-savvy trainer Cruz Ramirez; behind-the-scenes access to the story team who crafted Lightning McQueen’s third chapter; deleted scenes; and much more.

“Cars 3” is Disney•Pixar’s first in-home title released in stunning 4K Ultra HD format, the next-generation viewing format with four times the resolution of HD and exceptional high dynamic range (HDR), resulting in brilliant highlights, vibrant colors and greater contrast on compatible displays than ever before. With 4K Ultra HD, viewers will feel like they’re at the center of the action—holding their breath during the dramatic crash that launches Lightning’s journey, feeling the pulse-pounding action at the Florida International Super Speedway, and getting down and dirty at the Crazy 8 demolition derby.


Bonus Features*

Blu-ray & Digital:
  • Miss Fritter’s Racing Skoool (Exclusive new mini-movie) – Enjoy blindsided testimonials from the Crazy 8’s, touting the transformative impact Miss Fritter’s Racing School has had in reshaping the direction of their lives
  • Theatrical Short: “Lou” – When a toy-stealing bully ruins recess for a playground full of kids, only one thing stands in his way: the “Lost and Found” box.
  • Let’s. Get. Crazy. – Get schooled in the world of demolition derby, the “rules” of figure 8 racing, and how Pixar puts the crazy in the Thunder Hollow Crazy 8 race. This piece is hosted by Lea DeLaria.
  • Legendary – a close, historical look at the racing legends Wendell Scott and Louise Smith, whose tenacity and perseverance got them into the race even when they weren’t invited.
  • Ready for the Race – Disney Channel’s Olivia Rodrigo and NASCAR Racer William Byron check out the Hendrick Motorsports campus to showcase how real-world race training influenced the filmmakers.
  • World’s Fastest Billboard – Blink and you will miss all of the graphics and “car-ified” advertisements created by Pixar’s Art team to make the ”Cars 3” world as believable as possible.
  • Cruz Ramirez: The Yellow Car That Could – Join Cristela Alonzo and the filmmakers on their journey to create a race-car trainer turned champion racer.
  • Generations: The Story of “Cars 3” – For the story team, creating Lightning McQueen’s next chapter didn’t involve just a tune-up, but a complete overhaul.  
  • My First Car – A collection of illustrated first-car stories as narrated by members of the “Cars 3” cast and crew. “A Green Car on the Red Carpet with Kerry Washington,” “Old Blue,” and “Still in the Family.”
  • 5 Deleted Scenes – Each deleted scene is set up with an introduction as to why it was removed from the film. Deleted scenes include “The Boogie Woogie,” “The Jars of Dirt,” “Lugnut,” “The Bolt,” and “More Than New Paint.”

  • Commentary – Brian Fee (Director), Kevin Reher (Producer), Andrea Warren (Co-Producer) and Jay Ward (Creative Director)
  • And more…

DVD:
  • Theatrical Short: “Lou” & “Commentary”

#95 by the #s in “Cars 3”
  • 5 – As “Cars 3” gets underway, world-champion racer Lightning McQueen is riding high with five Piston-Cup wins under his hood.
  • 11 – Lightning McQueen raced into moviegoers’ hearts 11 years ago—making his rookie debut in “Cars” in March 2006—and remains an iconic character today.
  • 24 – The dramatic, slow-motion crash scene in which Lightning McQueen hits a wall and rolls several times takes 24 seconds.
  • 95 – Lightning McQueen still sports the dynamic #95 with his signature lightning-bolt graphics. He displays five distinct looks in “Cars 3,” including one that pays homage to his original paint, a primer look he gets following the devastating crash, a custom wrap ordered by Sterling, and more.
  • 198 – Lightning McQueen tops out at a speed of 198 miles per hour on his last lap with Cruz Ramirez on Fireball Beach. But Lightning’s nemesis—next-gen racer Jackson Storm—races at speeds pushing 207 mph.





  Kudos to Disney/Pixar for their subtle ways of inclusion.  Cruz Ramirez, Latina, sin stereotype, becoming a star on equal nivel when she followed her dream, believed in herself. Also Kudos for the way discrimination in racing was handled.  Louise Nash- 1st lady of Racing of the Piston Cup was a nod to NASCAR Legend Louise Smith  and River Scott was in rememberance of Wendell Scott-Pioneering African American driver, 1st  black man to win a major NASCAR race. Honoring greats , honoring differences, honoring age and the wisdom that comes with experience. Gracias for knowing how to tell a story guys.  You had BB on ALL levels.
