Book DescriptionTriggering an intervention of fate, 42 year old Rose Gerbaldi, discovers her heart and soul have been forever united with beautiful, 30 year old, British movie star, Michael Terrance. A discovery that compels her reality to firmly reclaim her – consequently devastating the very lives fate had so lovingly entwined. Forsaken by a woman he’s never met, unable to control the debilitating agony, Michael seeks solace on the darker side of Hollywood. Meanwhile in Western Canada, having been doubly devastated, Rose relinquishes to a life of loneliness. Both are certain they’ll never again find that for which they long for – each other. Foolish people – fate is infallible.Book ReviewThis book totally blew me away!  Once you start it, you just can’t stop reading.  Believe me, I tried!!  I know that I will be keeping a close watch on anything this author writes.  There are few authors who really can write a story that moves me as much as this one did.  And when I find them, I wan…

Holiday Guide: Tom & Jerry: Fur Flying Adventures

Image
Whether you want someone to rekindle their youth by revisiting old cartoons they loved or you want to share your youth with your kids and grandkids, this is a wonderful DVD to buy.There are 14 different cartoons that brought me right back to my childhood years.  It was always fun to watch the antics of Tom racing around frantically trying to catch Jerry.  Meanwhile, Jerry was always just a little too smart to be caught.  Then there were the very few cartoons when they worked together to fight a common foe.  My great nieces loved this DVD.  They wanted to watch it over and over.  I enjoyed watching it with them since it really took me back to my childhood as well.  So it was nice to create that wonderful bond of sharing my past with them.

Ben is improving!!

I just really wanted to thank everyone for all their prayers for Ben.  They have helped A LOT!The doctors still have no clue what caused his seizures.  And they can’t figure out why they are stopping either.They have had him awake for almost a week now.  He is seizure free at this point.  They are weaning him off of the rest of his medicines.We did have some rough points there at first.  He was literally going through detox.  It was scary and sad to watch one so little go through the same symptoms that junkies go through when coming off of their “fixes”.  However, with lots of prayers and love, he has made it through this.We still have a long road ahead of us.  Since he has been laying in bed for almost 3 months, his muscles have atrophied.  They said he will need tons of therapy to get him back on his feet again.Even though he only attended 1 day of the first grade, he was the tallest kid in the classroom.  Now he will have to repeat the first grade again because he missed too much a…

Empire of Light

Image
Book DescriptionJason Tisse is in over his head. As a young black cinematography student at LA's notoriously tough American Film Institute, he's got the vision, but not the balls to battle the ruthlessness that is Hollywood. After a failed year at AFI, which includes nearly electrocuting a fellow classmate, Jason embarks on a trip to Europe to hunt down the works of his favorite painter. Armed with an enchanted camera gifted to him by an eccentric film professor, Jason is prepared to master the art of light and shadow as depicted in the infamous baroque artwork of the original Emperor of Light known to the rest of the world as Caravaggio. What Jason doesn't expect, however, is that the innocent-looking Kodak Brownie camera he's been given holds remarkable powers, capable of miraculously bringing his idol's artwork alive with each snapshot. Caravaggio's work, packed full of sex, religion, violence and some outrageous hilarity, explodes to life and sends Jason sp…

The Darkness

Book DescriptionArtemisia, a scientist who also practices alchemy, is wealthy beyond imagination. She is one of the founding members of the Skyward Group, a privately funded, secret, research facility conducting experiments that erase what tradition has established as the boundaries separating the realm of man from the realm of God.

Her powers are greater and more deadly than any in the long tradition before her. Inanna has everything she wants - money, knowledge and God-like power - except for a child. The Child has nothing. At three months of age, he knows only what he has experienced through the bars of his locked cage. He has nothing. He doesn't have a mommy. He doesn't have a daddy. He doesn't have a name. The scientists who created him do not handle him, because they know The Child is dangerous. In The …

Overpower Pain

Book Description"More than 55 million Americans have experienced chronic pain lasting more than three years, and even more will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. In this book, Mitchell Yass shows that such pain is the result not of physical injuries such as herniated discs or arthritis, but of muscular imbalance and weakness. He clearly and simply demonstrates how most people can eliminate pain through strength training." Using the program he has developed in his fifteen years as a physical therapist, Mitchell Yass provides a comprehensive program with illustrations and detailed instructions to help readers return to full functioning capacity. Overpower Pain also describes how muscles function, how they can cause pain, and what specific exercises can be done to relieve pain in every part of the body.Book ReviewThis book has a lot of great information in it.  Mitchell Yass has provided not only exercises that will help to alleviate aches and pains, but he ex…
