The 1990’s Coloring Book All That and a Box of Crayons (Psych! Crayons not included) By James Grange from Ulysses Press


The 1990’s I was a teenager and so much happened during that are from the birth of grunge music, Britney Spears had a hit with Hit Me Baby One More Time, Chuck Norris was Walker Texas Ranger. Furby was big and so on. When I saw The 1990’s Coloring Book All That and a Box of Crayons (Psych! Crayons not included) By James Grange from Ulysses Press I knew I wanted to see a copy and share  with you my readers as I am sure you remember the 1990’s like me. This is a hilarious celebration of everything 1990’s including movies, music, television, fashion and technology. Who said coloring books are just for children?

With The 1990s, Coloring Book, fans of that epic era can grab their neon crayons and start shaking in their favorite moments. A colorful decade full of intriguing characters, memorable slang, and regrettable fashion, the 1990s loom large in today’s pop-culture consciousness. With a variety of illustrations from gigantic Zack Morris cell phones, flamboyant Bill Cosby sweaters, and mesmerizing Lisa Frank folders to Ross and Rachel kissing at Central Perk, the Spice Girls donning super-tall platform shoes, and Biggie and Tupac rapping East Coast/West Coast, the pages of The 1990s Coloring Book are a Rollerblade down memory lane. This pop-culture collage provides endless fun for anyone who is artistically inclined or just nostalgic for the days of Doc Martens and Daria. It truly is all that and a bag of chips.

My Opinion: I was nostalgic looking through this coloring book and remembered virtual everything inside. The drawings are alright hard to color with so many small lines. I would keep this as a collector item for years to come as it pretty much sums up the 1990’s

TaoTronics Clip-On Lens Set


In my world I love to take pictures rather it is for traveling, capturing family moments or blogging. I seem to always have a reason to take pictures. I wanted to try something new for my cell phone camera which led me to TaoTronics Clip-On Lens Set which includes 3 different lens options fisheye, 0.4 wide angle lens and macro. It also has the finest lens made with sleek aluminum circled lens made of high clarity optical glass guarantees photos without glare or reflection giving you the best shots each and every time. It protects the phone on the top and bottom caps cushion the lens against outside forces or from accidental drops & knocks.
Clip and Clamp: Detachable clip works with a wide range of phones so everyone can take amazing photos. TaoTronics Certified it is the most reliable brand with a 3-year pro seller record.

My Opinion: I had no problem using the fisheye lens and the super wide lens but the macro lens I could not get it to focus and very hard to unscrew from the fisheye lens it was attached to. I do like how the photos came up but wish I could try the macro one and see how up close and personal the pictures were. This is a great lens set for the price and works extremely well and very easy to use-I used these on my LG Optimus Fuel.

Circle B Ranch


\Located in Southwest Missouri is Circle B Ranch which is family-owned and operated farm specializing in naturally, sustainably and humanely raised pork with no added hormones or unnecessary antibiotics. Circle B Ranch raises their hogs the “old-fashioned” way, outside 100% on pasture where the hogs can run and exercise their instincts, the way nature intended. That is what makes Circle B Ranch meat redder and more succulent. If you’re looking for the best pork available on the market, look no further than Circle B Ranch. I was sent some items to review and sample which I was so excited to do as I am a big fan of natural foods.

 I got Marina’s Italian Style Tomato Sauce which is inspired by the Old World Italian tastes with fresh ripe tomatoes and olive oil. Big John’s BBQ Sauce is thick, rich spicy and sweet homemade with natural ingredients which you can use for burgers, ribs and more. Marina’s Cranberry Chutney real, whole cranberries and oranges go into this renowned chutney, with the perfect addition of spice to complete this perfect recipe. Marina’s Homemade Ketchup that is made in small batches with simple ingredients including tomatoes, organic garlic and onion powder. That is gluten free, soy free, dairy free, low in sodium, no high fructose corn syrup, low in calories and more. Big John’s Chop and Steak Sauce that is used for dipping, marinades for pork, chicken or beef; that is made with tomatoes sauce, tomato puree, olive oil, vinegar, molasses and more.


My Opinion: I love the Cranberry Chutney and use on my turkey burgers and mix with cream cheese for cheese and crackers. The Big John’s Chop and steak sauce is ok too many tomatoes for me but my husband loves. The ketchup is very good with the right amount of ingredients. The Italian Style Tomato sauce is great on meatball subs or over pasta and great flavor. The BBQ Sauce is good just a bit spicy and I am more of a mild BBQ sauce girl but has lots of flavors.

Happy Easter




Kobrand Wine and Spirits Easter Gift Guide 2016


Easter is on the way and Kobrand has some great wines to have with Easter dinner The Seeker Riesling which is a fresh and crisp wine that features vibrant fruit including citrus, peach and pineapple just enough sweetness to balance out the ham dinner as it can be salty. The Seeker Malbec is a well-round red wine that is acidic and fruity taste can handle the robust flavors of the lamb but not overpower it. St. Francis Chardonnay goes well with the vegetables and potatoes which go with the main dish this rich and ripe California Chardonnay has fresh melon, citrus and pineapple flavors making it a versatile medium-bodied Chardonnay that compliment vegetables like Brussels sprouts and a creamy potato salad. The last wine for Easter is the Caposaldo Moscato which goes with desserts like lemon pie or tart. The Caposaldo Moscato wine is a refreshing, light in alcohol taste with just enough sugar to match the gentle sweetness of desserts with apricot and peach aromas that highlight the honey cream.
My Opinion: These are a great pairing for your Easter dinner with friends and family to enjoy at the dinner table. My favorite so far is the Caposaldo Moscato as it is refreshing and light on the tongue. The others have a great flavor body to have with the meal and sides whichever you prefer.

BRIO Countryside Horse Set Easter Gift Guide 2016


With Easter coming very soon if you are still looking for a great gift to get your child who is over the age of three let me tell you about BRIO. BRIO sent me Countryside Horse Set that is part of a train set with a ride through the country! The wooden railway brings you over the rocks to a hidden countryside pasture. When your horse is up for a field trip away from its beautiful shed, give it a shower and lead it to the train. The wagon has a perfect design for horse transport, complete with a foldout ramp that includes 28 pieces in all. It is a great toy of discovery and stimulation for a child that age teaching hand-eye coordination becomes refined, and fine motor skills are improving through handling small objects.  This is a period where children will play alongside each other, but cannot share toys or play actively together.  Since their hand coordination is at a pretty high level, children this age like to help out in the kitchen; scrubbing vegetables, snapping peas, tearing salad, and peeling bananas. Cutting with safety scissors is also fun.  This is also a period when children’s imagination truly blossoms, and where they’ll start enjoying all types of pretend play: such as “playing house” with imaginary friends, dolls and stuffed animals.


My Opinion: I have seen train sets but none as detailed and simple for kids to grasp and hold with lots of different play options that can be played with for hours. It would make a great gift for any boy as you know boys love trains.

BRIO RC Travel Train Easter Gift Guide 2016


Another great Easter gift idea is BRIO RC Travel Train for ages 3 and up in the color white and has a remote controlled travel train the child is the train driver. The poseable figure fits inside the passenger wagon. The unique controller has easy to use reverse and stop functions as well as two different forward speeds. Press the buttons for light and sound effects using A & B frequencies make it possible for 2 RC trains to run on the tracks at the same time. This comes with 4 total pieces to play with and requires four AA batteries.

My Opinion: For kids to use it is very simple with no complicated handle to control the pieces are very sturdy and durable for kids to play with no matter how rough they get but obviously as a parent we would want them to be respectful of toys and others.

Prepper’s Communication Handbook by Jim Cobb


I got this book for my dad as he goes to a prepper’s meeting twice a month and figured he will enjoy reading this book it is called Prepper’s Communication Handbook Lifesaving Strategies for Staying in Contact during and after a Disaster by Jim Cobb. This is the ultimate guide to acquiring, assembling and utilizing life-saving emergency communication systems including in-depth coverage of using HAM radios, walkie talkies, shortwave radios and CB radios.
When disaster strikes, calls, texts and emails don’t work, after 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, and Hurricane Sandy, cell phones were rendered useless when transmission towers were destroyed and networks became overloaded. Having an alternative way of reaching family and loved ones at these critical moments is essential. With this in-depth guide, you learn the best tips, tricks and expert secrets for surviving when phones and the internet fail.

This comprehensive guide covers everything needed to be fully prepared for when the grid goes down, including the best types of radio for every disaster scenario from HAM radios (used by most search and rescue groups) to walkie talkies (small and easy to use, ideal for children). And since survival communication goes beyond the short term, there are also instructions for longer term solutions like hand-cranked or solar powered batteries.
My Opinion: This book gave me tons of information and I learned a thing or two as well with the meaning of each type of radio, the codes used by the military, aviation and law enforcement. How to communicate online and by radio to get help.My dad is going to love this book and what it has to offer as he feels in the near future we will be having a disaster and he will be prepared.
