It always seems like when we need a Humidifier…we cannot find ours.  We know we have one, but exactly where we put it?  So the last time I really actually saw mine — it was at my son’s house, and they were using it, so now I am thinking we likely aren’t going to get that one back.  So I need a new one, and if you don’t have one, enter below!

Entry #49378  Nick F.

There are times when you know that you are just…. THE ODD WOMAN OUT.

This weekend I had what I consider to be a unique opportunity – I won a giveaway sponsored by Duncan Hines® to be a guest of one of their bloggers at a unique and fun event at their headquarters.

I entered for this on a blog — and while usually the prizes given away on blog sites aren’t a trip, this one was one that sounded like an opportunity I couldn’t miss.

And yes, I won it from a cooking/baking blog called RealMomKitchen. I wasn’t even the first name drawn, as the first choice didn’t respond to the win notice. That means that I was double lucky. I was lucky the first person didn’t respond and then lucky enough to be chosen as the replacement.

I really was excited and thrilled to have won. I absolutely love to cook and bake. I absolutely love the Pinnacle® Brand of Products of which Duncan Hines® is only one…. and I considered this — for me — an opportunity of a lifetime.

I don’t usually enter for trips to travel alone — but because this was in NJ (where I was born) and because it was to a Duncan Hines® Event – I considered it was going to be more than just a trip for me — AND IT WAS!

The entire weekend was fabulous!

There were some other candidates for the odd woman out title …. those who felt they were “ignored” by the blogs representatives where they had entered – feeling that as a fan and subscriber they meant nothing to the blog owner — and there were some other minor (in my opinion) things to make others feel as if they too were the odd woman out.

But I think I qualified and won that event  – because I spent the entire weekend hungry.  I was not only hungry for the information provided, and for the companionship of the other accomplished bakers, but physically hungry.  

You see I have allergies. Severe allergies. And the foods provided by this spectacular food company just couldn’t really avoid using corn, fructose and fruit, or related products in what they provided to us to eat.   Don’t get me wrong, they provided a ton of food, including unbelievable desserts and everyone but me got to eat well.  Some ladies were even hitting the gym in the hotel to work some of it off, I instead felt like I was going to pass out from hunger. 

It was not 100% their fault, I mean although I filled out my questionnaire listing my allergy, I just don’t think it must have been taken that seriously.   Most people do not realize that there is hidden corn/fructose in products they eat every day – and for the most part don’t have to.  But even commercially prepared bread has corn syrup or fructose added –  and although it’s necessary in many cases to be able to provide a consistant product – do you think about that when you serve it?  Usually not. 

The first night, when I had some green beans and a couple slices of meat/turkey — since it was at the hotel — I thought it would be better the next day.   It wasn’t.  

Do you know the ingredients I asked in the ranch dressing?  And they acted like I had asked them in a foreign language.   The answer, oh it’s just regular ranch.  Helpful?  Not really.  Their reason for not knowing,  “oh we’re just the marketing people”.   I asked because there are products, and even commercially made ranch dressing that I can eat.  For lunch I was having only lettuce and tomato (the only things provided that I could eat) and I would have to eat it dry if I couldn’t find out the ingredients of the dressings.  I couldn’t even have the chips because Lays® products use oils, including corn oil to make their products (which I learned the hard way trying it one time).

To their credit they have a kitchen and they did make me a balsamic vinaigrette that was fabulous — but it didn’t quench my hunger.  I really needed some protein which wasn’t available.


   We spent the entire day learning about great stuff from decorating cakes to making simple sauces, and decorations for our creations.  I would never have wanted to miss a minute of those demonstrations, they were that good!!!  But I couldn’t eat or even taste any of that because almost every item contained or used corn syrup. 

   I didn’t feel “left out” because I know my allergies limit me to what I personally can and cannot have.  I am used to doing without, and not sharing in many of the wonderful things that I love to cook and bake — including desserts.   I cannot eat most commercially made products and/or even indulge in most fast food choices.   I didn’t expect, nor would I ever expect a menu to be made around what I could or could not eat.  But, I can’t just have a bagel, or a waffle till I know what’s in it.  Sometimes they use flours that have corn flour mixed it (from a previous allergic reaction having a pancake in Maine).

   My reactions can be just from my lips and nasal passages swelling, to migraine, to asthma attack, to having to use all the techniques in my arsenal, including my epi-pen to quell it. It’s not an easy journey. I cannot take a chance and just “try” something without considering it could be the last bite I take.

   What made me the Odd Woman Out contest winner this past weekend was that no one even vaguely considered how hungry I would be all weekend without being able to eat the provided food? 

But, am I still a Duncan Hines® Sweet Star?  You bet I am!

  • Ozone level: 0 ppm, not even measurable (instrument measures down to 0,002 ppm)
  • Certifications: EMC (Electromagnetic Quality) CE, ETL (US), GS, S, BSMI, CQC
  • Particle reduction: Effectively removes particles (size 0.01-1.0 μm). Especially efficient eliminating the smallest and most dangerous particles (nano particles below 0.1 µm), but it also removes larger particles (1.0-25.0 μm) at a reasonable rate.
  • Negative ion effect: 250 000 negative ions/cm3 on 1 meter’s distance.
  • Effectively removes airborne particles from dust, smoke, pollen, bacteria, virus, mold pet allergen and more. It is effective in eliminating the smallest particles that are considered to be most dangerous to our health. The efficiency is proven by several third party test institutes. 

No expensive filter to replace instead a reusable collector that you easily wash clean in water and washing-up liquid when needed. The fact that you never need to buy a filter will save you lots of many in comparison to filter-based air purifiers.

Less than 5 dB. For reference; a level of 45 dB indoors is identified as preventing activity, causing interference and annoyance. Most other air purifiers have a noise level of 35-80 dB.

Uses less than 7W per hour, which is much less than most other air purifiers. The energy consumption is highly relevant as all air purifiers should be turned on at all times to efficiently keep the particle concentration down.

The ozone level is not even measurable and thus considered to be equal to zero. This is the first time, as far as we know, that anyone has managed to obtain a high emission of negative ions without producing ozone as a bi-product!

Just name me one person who really would prefer dirty air?  Pollen filled, mold filled or even just “stale” air.  Thought so… no one!  That’s why this product is so beneficial to anyone on the planet.

The Lightair helps a growing number of people that are suffering from asthma  allergies, COPD and many other health problems such as fatigue, headache and concentration difficulties – which often stem from unhealthy indoor air quality.Small particles, below the size of 2.5 micron (PM2.5) and even below 1 micron, are inhaled deeply into our lungs, entering our blood stream bringing in other substances into our body. About 90% of the particles that are in the air are below 2.5 micron and they can become airborne for a very long time due to their size. These particles today are the causes of heart and vascular disease, different forms of cancer as well as a serious aggravating factor that causes allergy and asthma reactions. Lightair effectively removes these particles that are in the air and is it is efficient in removing the smallest particles that are considered to be the most hazardous to our health.
