  When was the last time you read a label on a product you use often? If you haven't done it in a while, you should. Even products that you think are better for you often contain mystery ingredients. Why? If something is suppose to be natural you should understand what the ingredients are. Admittedly, some ingredients are written in their … [More...]

Movie Review: The Shallows

the-shallows

  Isn't it funny how horror movies can make you fearful of certain situations. Take for example Friday the 13th and Jason Vorhees. How many people developed an unnatural fear of camping because of those films? Jaws is another great example. After watching the film, how many people became fearful of swimming in the ocean? I know I did when I … [More...]

  Are you a fan of Little House on the Prairie? I have been a fan for as long as the show has been on television. I used to watch it faithfully with my sister when we were younger.

  Do you remember the first thing you made in the kitchen when you were a child? For me, it was boxed macaroni and cheese. It didn't take me long to get familiar with the kitchen and cook things.

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.
