Bad Ass 2: Bad Asses Review

Danny Trejo (Machete) and Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon) star in the action-packed follow-up to the 2012 cult hit Bad Ass with BAD ASS 2: BAD ASSES, from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Returning writer and director Craig Moss (Breaking Wind, 30 Nights of Paranormal Activity with the Devil Inside the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) brings our two unlikely heroes together to deliver the most hard-hitting, butt-kicking movie experience to hit home entertainment this year.

Vietnam vet Frank Vega (Trejo) now runs an East L.A. community center where he trains young boxers to survive in and out of the ring. But when his prize student falls in with the wrong crowd and turns up dead, Frank teams up with his pal Bernie (Glover) to take matters into their own fists and prove that justice never gets old.

Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway's Ghost Kids Book Review

We begin with Kitty landing in Florida, taking a break from flying around the world Amelia Earhart-style. With a nose for adventure, but a knack for trouble, it doesn't take Kitty too long before suspense finds her. 

Reading books in this series takes me back to when I was young and books like this seemed far more common. Time for reading has been taken away from our younger generation mostly due to newer technology, different distractions, and tighter schedules. Reading remains no less important however and it is important to read something as engaging and fun as a Kitty Hawk book to ensure you keep reading until the end. Once you start reading this book, I can promise that you will finish it. 

The sudden and rapidly evolving suspense of this series is what my daughter and I love most about this series. The author, Iain Reading, does an excellent job narrating a picture that places you amid the action by describing elements that cover all of the appropriate senses like scents, colors, and textures. 

Overall, this book fairs very well as an adventure novel. At just over 300 pages it is available both in print, and in digital edition at a greatly reduced cost. The artwork on the cover is as amazing as the other entries in the series.  Don’t miss out on this great Kitty Hawk entry, or if need be, start from the beginning with the Curse of the Yukon Gold, adventure lies in the pages of these books.

Where to purchase: You are able to purchase Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway's Ghost (Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency Series) from Amazon for $8.09

OMG: The Magic Mistake Kids Book Review

Being twelve years old is hard enough as it is without having to worry about taking care of other people’s problems for them. Little Lacey Unger-Ware can attest to this, as this is exactly what she has been tasked with doing. It’s a good thing she has super-powers to help her accomplish the task! In the second OMG (Oh My Godmother) outing, Lacey has been tasked with helping a woman named Gina discover true love in less than a week. This is an awfully big test for such a small Godmother. Throw in the consequence of becoming cursed if she fails, and you have stakes that are even higher for poor little Lacey. Not to be mistaken as foreboding, the book remains upbeat and positive, in spite of the tall odds that Lacey faces. 

The second book in the OMG series is a great time for younger readers who get bored easily. It is silly, fun, and has illustrations to help bring the tale to life. This book can be read as a sequel to the first, but this is not necessary as it does a good job on its own in case you missed the first. It is a fairly short read. Dedicated youth readers will probably finish it in a couple of sittings. I think that this is good, books that are too long can confuse or intimidate young readers, this book will leave them wanting to read the first if they have not already.

The Healthy Slow Cooker 'Second Edition' 135 Gluten-Free Recipes for Health and Wellness Cook Book Review


The Healthy Slow Cooker: 135 Gluten-Free Recipes for Health and Wellness $18.90

Definitions of healthy eating have changed quite dramatically since The Healthy Slow Cooker was first published in 2006. In those days it was one size fits all; i.e. low-fat, no saturated fat, low calorie and moving toward nutrient-dense foods.

Now there is a shift in nutritional guidelines and there is significantly more scientific information to add. Many experts report that many modern diseases are directly associated with the consumption of wheat and advocate for a reduction in carbohydrates for beneficial health results. Another significant development is the evidence against saturated fat is gradually diminishing. And at the same time, established dietary guidelines are under increasing scrutiny.

The Wisconsin Cheeseman Review/Giveaway

Food is the universal language of the world. Most everyone loves food. It is, after all, an essential part of our lives that can actually be enjoyed.

This is where The Wisconsin Cheeseman comes in. 

The Wisconsin Cheeseman offers specialty food and gift ideas that are as tasty as they are gourmet. They sell a wide variety of quality food, mostly summer sausage; venison, cheese, and ham, but there are plenty of other options available on their website as well, gifts such as wreathes and candy.

Big Rig Children's Book Review

Come along for the ride as Frankie the big rig truck takes us on the job, driving past kiddie cars (school buses) and land yachts (RVs). Hear the horn blow and the wipers schwat the windshield clean. But, BANG! SHHUUU! Uh-oh: a blow-out! Don't worry, a service truck saves the day so we can get the job done and make a very special delivery.

Every kid will love to learn the truck driver lingo in the story, and shout out their own sound effects as they return for another ride, read after read. Author Jamie Swenson takes readers from zero to sixty with her fast-talking truck and Ned Young's bright and engaging illustrations.

Reading books is an important part of learning new things. With so many other distractions, it can be hard to find time to read. Encouraging the young people in our lives to read is very important. I have a six year old son who is just beginning to really get into reading. I had the perfect opportunity to review the book “Big Rig” for my son; it is a book about an 18 wheeler and his cargo hauling adventures. Kids are encouraged to ride along with Big Rig as the progress from the beginning to the end of the book, road-trip style. 

Dial Vitamin Boost Body Wash Review / Giveaway

Soap has evolved a lot since it was introduced to the market. It comes in many different shapes, sizes, fragrances, and colors. Different soaps are made for different purposes, but they all are meant to keep us clean. Body wash does most of the heavy-lifting during our bathing. While shampoo and conditioner only have to clean our hair, body wash is left with taking care of the rest of our body. Who better to entrust our hygiene than a company that has been around more than 120 years? When I think of any soap, Dial immediately comes to mind. From bars to body wash, Dial has you covered. Their new vitamin boost body wash really takes things to the next level. 
I recently had the chance to review a lovely scent of the Dial Vitamin Boost body wash brand, the Amazing B complex. The scent of the Amazing B complex is kiwi, a fragrance that I love. The citrusy aroma fills the shower, allowing for a feeling of vigor, while the B complex rejuvenates your skin and pores, revitalizing and nurturing your body. 

Toys Made With Love from Kids Preferred!

The new Guess How Much I Love You soft toy and gift collection from Kids Preferred debuted this year and the NY Toy Fair with seven charming new products inspired by the beloved children's book. The collection includes the Guess How Much I Love You Bean Bag, Rattle, Light-up Pullstring Musical toy, Blanky, Puppet, Floppy, and Jack in the Box which all beautifully reflect the book's universal message of love. This wonderful collection offers something to hold onto, something to listen to and many things to cherish, making it the perfect gift for young kids!
