It's the scene that left you crying from laughing so hard.  The movie you watch when you are having a bad day.  The things that drive you to be fearless.  Make you get up and dance.  The movie that makes you ask, "what would Ferris do?"  Where the underdogs always come back on top.  The storylines that redefine your own life experience.  What we watch doesn't just entertain us.  It changes us, helps us believe, and overcome any challenge life throws our way.  This is the anthem that runs through the core of Visit the site and find the content you already love

Nordic Natural Omega 3 for Pets Review and Giveaway #PawsForACause

Buy One Bottle. Help Two Heroes.
Today's veterans frequently return from active duty with neurological and physical disabilities that make navigating daily life extremely challenging. Every day, 22 veteran suicides are reported. Meanwhile, in animal shelters across the country, 1.2 million dogs are euthanized every year.
From October through December, join Nordic Naturals as we support non-profit Paws for Veterans in the "Buy One Bottle. Help Two Heroes." initiative. Every time you purchase a qualifying product, you will be helping Paws for Veterans, an organization that delivers life-saving support to both combat-wounded veterans and shelter dogs that would otherwise be euthanized.

About Paws for Veterans

Nordic Naturals was inspired to launch their Nordic Pet® Collection to provide dog and cat companions with the same exceptional quality oils they produce for humans, so they too can experience the benefits of  fish oils.
I have been giving my 8 year old Border Collie Nordic Naturals Omega-3 Pet for Medium to Large Breed Dogs  for the past 3 weeks and I can honestly tell you with out a doubt that her overall health has improved. Also that she has loved having this added to her food daily.  I am extremely pleased to know that Nordic Naturals does not include rosemary oil or flavorings, which are contained in our human products, in order to ensure safety for pets.  I  didn't realize that before.
Nordic Naturals Omega-3 Pet for Medium to Large Breed Dogs is an excellent source of the omega-3 essential fatty acids EPA and DHA. It is an essential supplement to promote optimal pet health and wellness at home. Their pure omega-3 oil is derived exclusively from wild anchovies and sardines from the South Pacific Ocean off the coast of Peru. In 2008, the sustainability of these Peruvian fisheries was ranked as number one in the world.   Please use only their pet products for dogs and cats.

I have been taking Ultimate Omega  every day.  What I like about it is that it is double-strength EPA+DHA for increased omega-3 benefits in fewer soft gels.

The omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) found in fish oil help support:
• Cellular health
• Immune system health
• Skin and coat health
• Joint health
• Heart health
• Brain development and maintenance
• Eye development and maintenance

Number One Probiotic Review

What are probiotics?

 Probiotics are good bacteria who perform a very important role in our digestive, metabolic and immune systems. They produce enzymes that break down the food we eat, regulate vitamins intake and convert sugars to the essential nutrients our bodies need.
Let me tell you a bit about why I am so pleased with Number One Probiotics.
I have too much acid in my stomach (GERDS)  and have had so many problems with heartburn and also having severe stomach inflammation.  I have been taking 2 of these every day for about 2 weeks and I have finally had some relief. I'm still going to be continuing my prescribed medications at this time but in addition to them, I was also taking 2 more over the counter medications one I took several times a day and the other I was taking twice a day (with no relief) along with the prescribed pills that I was also taking twice a day. After a couple of days I stopped taking both over the counter pills, an antacid along with a histamine-2 blocker. The pain that has made me feel so uncomfortable and frustrated is almost totally gone. I haven't felt this good for sometime. My doctor told me to keep taking the probiotic, he didn't have to tell me twice.

Doctors everywhere say probiotics are "Essential" to the body. Many will even say that taking probiotics in pill form ensures that you consume the right probiotic strains and the right recommended dosage. Taking probiotic pills saves you from consuming excess dairy and sugar, which are present in many probiotic foods.
I have been eating yogurt for years but lately I am watching my weight and so for me that means that taking probiotics in pill form assures me of having the right amount of good bacteria that I know that my body needs in order for me to feel good and stay healthy.
 Did you know that the GI tract is responsible for 80% of the immune system`s health? When we improve the digestive function we are also giving a great BOOST to the IMMUNE SYSTEM. Fighting off the bad bacteria present in the GI tract will also help the body to fight off INFECTIONS. Bringing balance to the Intestinal flora will also alleviate digestive discomfort, inflammation and BLOATING.
Here is what the company says about their guarantee. You just can't afford to not give this product a try.

 ENJOY AN UNPRECEDENTED 200% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE - I am SO confident you're going to love your #1 Probiotics that I have decided to add an unbeatable double guarantee! If, AT ANY POINT IN TIME, you decide you are not fully satisfied with your #1 Probiotcs, simply let me know and I will refund every penny of your purchase. On top of that, I will also send you a brand new bottle free of charge! No questions asked.

Read this before you go anywhere on Halloween this year

                     Halloween Safety Tips for 2014
When Halloween happens to fall on a Friday means that 
there is much more traffic out there both on foot and on the roads.  Also there will be more chances of alcohol related accidents than if Halloween was to fall on a week day.  When it's on a Friday there will be more parties, more people and more people drinking and driving.  There will be kids everywhere tonight out walking all around and coming across streets seemingly from out of nowhere.  They will all be out late tonight because it's a Friday and it's Halloween.
 Drive slow and be prepared.  Watch out for sudden stops too.   I'm just sharing the facts.  So keep your eyes and ears on and be sure and pay attention to the "other guy" wherever you are because you may be doing everything smart tonight but that "other guy" may be distracted by trick or treaters, or looking for a party place or could possibly be drunk.  Also when Halloween falls on a weekend there could be more people out and about all weekend not just tonight.  
Motor vehicle fatalities increase 37 percent on average when October 31 is on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday compared to other days of the week, according to the past decade of data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Sperling’s BestPlaces analyzed more than four million records in the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) from 1990 – 2010 for children 0-18 years of age on October 31. That detailed analysis revealed the following:
Halloween Was Deadliest Day of the Year for Child Pedestrian Accidents
One hundred and fifteen child pedestrian fatalities occurred on Halloween over the 21 years of our analysis. That is an average of 5.5 fatalities each year on October 31, which is more than double the average number of 2.6 fatalities for other days.
Did you know that...
  • Young drivers ages 15-25 accounted for nearly one-third of all fatal accidents involving child pedestrians on Halloween.
  • Over 70% of the accidents occurred away from an intersection or crosswalk.
  • About 4,400 people in the United States visited emergency rooms in 2013 for Halloween-related injuries, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. 
  • Most of the fatalities occurred with children ages 12-15  (32% of all child fatalities) Which is also the ages that are most often roaming the streets without parents and with distractions like friends and cellphones.
Another danger is "distracted walking" I think we have all seen this happen frequently.  Someone is walking and looking at their cell phone at the same time.  Teens do this fairly often but I'm certain that all ages are guilty of this at times as well. especially when we are taking more pictures than usual which tonight would be the biggest threat to a "distracted walker."
Have a Safe and Happy Halloween from Read More Books!

True Tails From The Dog Park

What it's about:
The 1st thing I thought of as I was reading this book was that it would be a hit with the local dog park crowd.  Trust me there really are dog park "groupies" and I know because I was one of them.
Most dog owners love dog parks.  I know that I totally enjoyed  taking my own dog to play whenever I could and when my granddaughter become a dog owner at age 12,   she lived right across the street from the dog park and so she took her Malamute there every day.   I think most cities and towns have a local dog park these days and my city is no exception.  This delightfully humorous  book is a combines true stories about dogs and their people and what happens when they meet up regularly at the dog park along with some common sense observations and tips.
The book is written in the voices of Max who happens to be a Puggle and his friend Luther an Olde English Bulldog.  They have very different perspectives on things and as you read along you'll begin to appreciate their differences.   This book would make a wonderful gift for her or any dog lover in your life.  It gives the reader perspective of what dogs and people are like when they get together to play. But most of all the book is fun to read too.
You can purchase this book on Amazon

Bonapiel Anti Aging Moisturizer with Matrixyl 3000 + Vitamin C + Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin E

Let me tell you about this product.
This product is very light and goes on smooth and absorbs quickly. It has a peppermint smell to it that I personally don't care much for but it's not too bad.  My daughter in law said she liked the smell of this product.  So it's just a matter of preference. The smell was not a hindrance at all.
 It does absorb rather quickly which is a plus if you are in a hurry to get ready and want to get makeup etc on right away.  I noticed that it doesn't take very much to overdo it meaning it is easy to use a little bit more than necessary and whenever I have it seems to dry my skin out instantly .  My forehead will seem to pucker up a little.   It almost looks like there is a dry coating of leftover soap on my face if I use too much.  But because it is very thin it is easy to use too much. Apply a little bit to one or two fingertips and no more than that.  What I do like about this product is that it does appear to plump up my wrinkles.  I've been using it nearly every day as you can see from my bottle.  I like this product more as time goes by and I have had a chance to try other similar products but I just keep coming right back to this product.
Just remember to use sparingly on the problem areas for best results.  The bottle lasts longer that way too.


I received this product in exchange for an honest review.
