Losing Ruth

Ruth Dickson

A few months ago I told you about some of my favorite blogs. The first blog that I told you about was written by my friend Ruth Dickson. Ruth left her friends and family behind last night when she went to join the great love of her life, Tony Curtis. I am not kidding when I say that Tony Curtis (yes, THAT Tony Curtis) was her great love. She was devastated when she received news of his death and now they are together.

Halloween Totes

Way back when in the time before dinosaurs my brother and I would take pillow cases and wagon and head out into the neighborhood (unsupervised) to go trick or treating. We would come home with the wagon and the pillow cases FULL of candy!

Fast forward 40 (or so) years. It is no longer safe to let your kids go through the neighborhood unsupervised and who really wants their kids bringing home enough candy to last a whole year?

Monsters: An Excerpt from The Book of Paul by Richard Long

You tell your children not to be afraid. You tell them everything will be all right. You tell them Mommy and Daddy will always be there. You tell them lies.

Wreck-It Ralph In Theaters November 2, 2012

From Walt Disney Animation Studios and Emmy®-winning director Rich Moore comes “Wreck-It Ralph,” a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping adventure. For decades, Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) has been overshadowed by Fix-It Felix, Jr. (voice of Jack McBrayer), the good-guy star of their game who always gets to save the day. Tired of playing the role of a bad guy, Ralph takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a journey across the arcade through multiple generations of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.

On his quest, Ralph meets tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty, and feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, who may just be his first real friend. But everything changes when a deadly enemy is unleashed, threatening the entire arcade and Vanellope herself. Ralph finally gets his chance to save the day—but can he do it in time? “Wreck-It Ralph” crashes onto the big screen on November 2, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.

Fieldcrest Luxury Down Alternative Pillow Review-&-Giveaway

Field Crest Luxury Down Alternative Pillow
When my grandfather died my grandmother gave me his down pillow to sleep with. I slept with it for the next 15 years. I loved that pillow. It was the last physical reminder of my grandfather and I took it everywhere with me. When I finally got rid of it there wasn't much left of it. Feathers would fly out of it every time I moved the pillow. The case was stained and torn. Throwing that pillow out was one of the hardest things I ever had to do. Review-&-Giveaway

Poise 2nd Talk Twitter Party

Second Talk? I bet you are wondering what that is all about. You know what the first talk is. It's when our moms discuss getting your period all that it entails. Unfortunately getting your period is not the end. After childbearing comes menopause. Menopause is not something that I discussed with my mother, and after talking to my friends I have discovered that they have not discussed it with their mothers either. Poise is looking to change that with a new line of products just for women who are entering menopause.

Passion Creek Blog Tour-&-Giveaway

Passion Creek by Avery Flynn

Uptight history professor Sam Layton may have the abs of a movie action hero, but he stopped believing in the joy of adventure a long time ago. However, when a one-night stand with a tattooed bombshell leads to a treasure map for the long-buried Rebecca’s Bounty, the call to action is too strong to ignore. All Las Vegas cocktail waitress Josie Winarsky wants to do is paint. But when she lands smack dab in the middle in a mob plot, she has to push aside her dreams to find a treasure in Dry Creek, Nebraska and save her family from harm. With Sam at her side and a Vegas loan shark on her tail, the treasure she finds turn out to be much more valuable than emeralds and rubies. This book is intended for Adults 18+

Green Earth Bamboo Review-&-Giveaway

What is sustainable living? According to Wikipedia, Sustainability is: 
the capacity to endure. For humans, sustainability is the long-term maintenance of responsibility, which has environmental, economic, and social dimensions, and encompasses the concept of stewardship, the responsible management ofresource use. In ecology, sustainability describes how biological systems remain diverse and productive over time, a necessary precondition for the well-being of humans and other organisms. Long-lived and healthy wetlands and forests are examples of sustainable biological systems.
For too long we have been a destructive society and it is only in our recent history that we have begun to realize that if we continue on our destructive path that there will be nothing left for our children. That's where bamboo enters the picture.
