About the prize

We try very hard to provide balance for our kids between something yummy and something healthy. They just know they are hungry and we know that if we can provide the right nutrients they will do better at school, sports and play. It is up to us to provide something packed with nutrition and super foods.

Along comes Slammers Super Food Snacks by Go Gourmet. They use ingredients from certified organic farms. Their yummy snacks have no added sugar and no artificial ingredients. Slammers are convenient, healthy treats that help kids get the nutrition they need no matter where they are or what they are doing.

Check out their website to see all of the different flavors they have that are packed with protein and nutrients to help keep kids energized, fueled and focused. It is so easy to just throw a couple in their backpack or lunchbox for an on-the-go healthy snack.

Well--these are made for children but after taking a glimpse at their website--I think this almost 66 year old woman would enjoy these as well! I really need some healthy snacks instead of what I have been eating lately. So if your child-or you-needs something healthy to snack on--take a chance-you never know-you might be the one lucky winner!


We know you won't want to wait to see if you won, so click here to check out their website and find a store near you that carries these convenient nutritious snacks.

$25 Amazon/PP-1-WW-DIY Learn to Draw! 8/19 @Homestetics and #Homesthetics

As most of you know I have no children--and you also probably know that I am all about literacy-for both children and adults--so how could I not write a post about this magazine!! I am also of the opinion that Art and Music should never have been taken out of most school's curriculum's. Without the Arts, in all it's forms, true literacy can not be achieved (IMO).

From their site:

"It has been determined that drawing in the early stages of childhood can provide insightful knowledge into the crucial cognitive, physical and emotional development of a child. The actual act of drawing is chosen by all young kids as a creative expressive manner of externalization and engaging the developing intellect and the entire body in general. If you ever opt to simply observe a little one drawing you can notice how his concentration is expressed with his entire body, the activity being one extremely engaging and appealing to young and adults alike. With this idea in mind, Homesthetics in partnership with Designaissance has started the Cool Things To Draw Collection, a creative method of immersing into the colorful world of basic illustrations able to inspire and to offer guidance in creative representations of the imaginative. Cast a glance and stay tuned for more creative fun illustrations coming soon."

There are several DIY illustrations which will show you how to draw a deer, a butterfly on flowers and a Sunflower and a snail

This will be perfect for all you home schooling Mom's out there as well as all other Mom's, Dad's Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles-did I forget anyone? There is even a section on how to get your children excited about drawing. You really have to see this for yourself and they tell me that lots more is coming!

They can also be found at:


Now for the giveaway--

a Rafflecopter giveaway

This contest is open world wide for anyone aged 18 years of age or older. One winner will be chosen via Rafflecopter
at the end of the giveaway I will email that winner-they must reply within 48 hours with the e-mail they wish the prize sent to. I will forward that information to the sponsor who is responsible for getting you the prize.

Book Review-The Inside Passage-Carl Brookins

Thursday, July 21, 2016

Having read and enjoyed 2 of Carl Brookins novels before I knew I wanted to read this one. It is a totally different style from those two, The Case of the Yellow Diamond (see my review here) and The Purloined Painting (see my review here). This is an adventure, mystery thriller with multiple twists and turns-one you won't want to put down! I know I couldn't and didn't-I read it in one sitting. It does start a bit slowly but watch out--it picks up speed very quickly!! I definitely recommend this book!! Now i want to read the other 2 books in this series.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

The Inside Passage is an adventure thriller set primarily on the waters between Campbell River, British Columbia, and Seattle, Washington. It is the story of one man’s successful effort to find justice and peace after the murder of his wife and her friend by ruthless gun runners. It offers moving descriptions of magnificent mountain scenery and the sea, storms, explosive action, murder, loss, love, and redemption.

Read a chapter or two here

About the Author: (from Amazon)

Retired from a local university, I've entered a new career as a reviewer and author. The Michael Tanner/Mary Whitney sailing adventure series (INNER PASSAGES, A SUPERIOR MYSTERY, OLD SILVER) are my initial foray.

Now I'm branching out with a new series featuring a Twin Cities detective named Sean NMI Sean. His first story is THE CASE OF THE GREEDY LAWYERS. I live and work in Minnesota and travel with that nefarious band of authors called the Minnesota Crime Wave.Sean's current case is THE CASE OF THE PURLOINED PAINTING, having to do with WWII souvenir retrieval.
