Rant time: I have known for sometime that networks have been speeding up their shows in order to jam in more advertisements. Most of the time, in the past, it didn't bother me a great deal. You could barely tell it was being done. This last week I was watching... Continue reading

I was not overly thrilled by the bullet. It is just a small blender. It doesn't make a good salsa or anything like that. It basically purées everything. I am using it now for daily healthy smoothies. If I were to rate this ..... I would give it a 2/5.... Continue reading

Good morning everyone! Today I would like to discuss the X Files with you. I had my reservations at first but I must say I am not disappointed. The first episode felt weak. It can't be easy getting things up and running again. I had my doubts as to whether... Continue reading

Banana Split Tea Easily near the top of my list of favorites this tea is definitely incredible. Only problem with this tea... is that it was a limited edition from last summer. (2015) Sorry all. But maybe we can all get lucky and they will bring it back! It is... Continue reading
