Movie Review: Supremacy

Supremacy

  Available today on Blu-ray and DVD is the thriller Supremacy. Supremacy stars Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon), Joe Anderson (Hercules) and Dawn Olivieri (American Hustle). To be honest I was a bit "on the fence" about this title. I do enjoy a good action/thriller film, but this film touches upon things that are so prevalent in the news these … [More...]

Movie Review: The Walking Deceased

The Walking Deceased

  Available today on DVD is the zombie movie spoof The Walking Deceased. This sounds odd to say this but I enjoyed zombies long before they were the "in" thing. Growing up I have always loved horror movies. One of my favorite was Dawn of the Dead (the original 1978 version, not the 2004 remake, although that one was good too). In fact my … [More...]

Some fun things we are thinking about doing are going to the beach for the day (New Jersey Shore), exploring some area parks that we haven't visited before and going to the American … [More...]

OGIO for women on the go

hamptons_raspberry_1_4

  Being a stay at home/work from home mom for a big chunk of my life, I never had to worry much about taking all my daily essentials with me where ever I went. When my kids were little I would tote around half our home in my diaper bag, but that was many years ago. My kids are teenagers now. Prior to getting a job outside of the home all I … [More...]

Ent5831 HI-ELB RRR Earth Day Icon-FIN

    Earth Day is on April 22, 2015. In fact it's celebrated annually on the same day. It was first celebrated in 1970. Sadly I didn't know about Earth Day until a few years ago.

LuguLake speaker

  It's hard to believe that summer time is just around the corner. That means lazy days lounging pool side, trips to the beach and plenty of barbecues and picnics. What goes perfect with these situations is music. Gone are the days of huge "boom boxes" and having to move your entire stereo system outside just to listen to some tunes. These … [More...]

Willamy Bracelet

  This weekend I finally made the decision to go through the bedroom closet and rid it of stuff I no longer need or use. My car is stuffed with thing to donate to a local charity. They sell the items and all the profits goes towards their charity. While I was cleaning out my closet I found a lot of my jewelry that was lost among the mess. I … [More...]

Add color and whimsy to your home with Whim™ by Martha Stewart

Whim

  My mom always told me that I like to march to the beat of my own drums. I have never been one to follow the "norm." I choose to be different and unique. I've always been that way. My home reflects my eclectic tastes. I have mismatched furniture, my desk is covered with toys (my toys - not toys belonging to kids) and I have rat and mice wall … [More...]

HP

  It never ceases to amazed me just how much we rely on technology these days. Growing up the idea of a handheld device you could watch movies on, or make phone calls wirelessly from on top of a mountain were not even a thought. The big thing when I was a teen was cable and Sony Walkman portable players. I also cannot believe how far computers … [More...]

Finding the “missing piece” to the puzzle

Me as an infant.

  I have a secret. It's not really a secret to family and close friends, but its something that I don't often talk about. My secret is that I no next to nothing about my biological mother. She abandoned me when I was a toddler and I was raised by my paternal grandparents. All I know is what I have been told by family members. According to … [More...]

I was raised by them. Even though they were not biologically my parents I they raised me from when I was a toddler. They always have been - and always … [More...]
