books

  I have always loved books. I used to be an avid reader. I actually have most of my books from when I was a child. I kept them to read to my kids. I plan on reading them to my grandchildren one day too (God willing). I also love old books. I have a few that I stumbled across at antique stores. I have some old books written by Rudyard Kipling, … [More...]

hnck2737

  Tis’ the season to eat, drink and be merry. As we celebrate the holidays we often find ourselves joyously hopping from party to party with more and more cocktails being consumed. We all know how lousy we feel after a night of binge drinking, defined as more than 3 drinks within a 3-hour period. We experience dehydration, our voices become … [More...]

Move Review: The Unspoken

the-unspoken

  Available today on DVD is the horror film, The Unspoken.  I am a big fan of the horror genre. Sadly, they don't make truly horrifying movies anymore. Many horror films these days are all about being the grossest film possible - or they have to resort to naked women (why, I'll never know). I like horror films that keep you on the edge of … [More...]

*This is a sponsored post. Do you suffer from dry skin? I do. I never used to. I don't recall dealing with dry skin when I was younger.

I also wash my hands many times per day, which makes my hands really dry. I … [More...]

moana-dolby-cinema-at-amc

  The movie going experience has changed A LOT since I was a young girl. Some things have stayed the same - like popcorn and candy from the concession stand. But seeing the movie it's self has changed so much over the years, including how movies are made. It's common knowledge that movies made these days are high-tech, made with an arsenal of … [More...]

Movie Review: Angry Birds

Angry Birds

  Angry Birds have come a long way since they first came out as a fun game (app) you could play on your phone or other device. I used to play that game a lot. It was the only game on my phone. Even now, years later, Angry Birds was one of the few games I had on my cellphone. I can't tell you how many times I deleted the game out of frustration … [More...]

The Little Red Wagon…

Radio Flyer and Hobbes

Think back to when you were a little child. Was there a toy that was very special to you? For me it was my Fisher Price Little People (back when they were made out of wood) and my stuffed animals. In fact I still have the first two stuffed animals I was ever given - Pal and Bridget. Pal is in bad condition. In fact, he doesn't even have a piece of hair left … [More...]
