Vitamin B12 helps in maintaining overall energy levels and cognitive abilities supports a healthy lifestyle. Vitamin B12 and folate help preserve DNA integrity and are important for lowering homocysteine levels. Key medical experts even suggest that all healthy adults over 50 years of age supplement their diets with 100 to 400 micrograms per day of Vitamin B12.

In the past I have taken B12 to help give me a bit more energy and was excited to try this Maxasorb B12.  Along with the increase in my energy level B12 is good for anti-aging, supports renewal of healthy skin cells, reduces appearance of wrinkles, moisturizes.  What I found was that the Vita Sciences Vitamin B12 skin cream worked well.  It gave my skin lots of moisture and actually helped heal a couple patches of dry skin.  My skin felt like it was soothed and nourished.

The bottle has 30 measured applications, enough for a month.  If you would like to purchase Vita Sciences Vitamin B12 skin cream you can do so on the link below from Amazon.com.

Rex loves to BBQ or he did until our apartment complex told us we couldn’t have a grill any more.  The one problem that we had when grilling in the past was that when it got dark it was hard to see the grill.  We had a light but it left shadows ~ so Rex was very happy to have this barbecue Grill Light for BBQ Grilling – by Yumms.  It has 10 ultra bright LED and the grill light illuminates the entire barbecue grilling surface without shadows, so you’re able to clearly see the food you’re cooking.

What is really nice is that it comes with an easy adjustable mounting kit so it fits on any size barbecue. It is easy to move it too.    It would be great to take camping or to keep in your car for emergency lighting.  It is also weather resistant so the unit can be used if it’s raining (without having to worry about it malfunctioning or becoming a safety hazard).

Those of you who know me know that I am weird about making sure my produce has been washed.  I rinse and spin my lettuce three times before I use it.  I was excited to see the new packaging for NatureSweet® Tomatoes.  The packaging is 100 percent recyclable  and features a  re-sealable lid with ventilation holes in  both the top  and  bottom of the container, making the rinse  and  storage  process a breeze for consumers.

NatureSweet® tomatoes are greenhouse grown in a controlled environment, from the seeds, to the growing medium, to the water that is used. NatureSweet® tomatoes begin with seeds that have been selected for their superior taste and all plants are nurtured with a “secret recipe” of water and nutrients. You can taste the difference.IMG_1191

NatureSweet® come in a number of varieties including  Cherubs®, SunBursts™,  Glorys™,  Cherriots™,  Jubilees™ and Constellation™.   We have tried a number of them and I do love the containers.  You just peel open the top to rinse the tomatoes or to take out the tomatoes you want to use. I have noticed that the tomatoes last a lot longer in this container than others I have purchased.

I am not a big fan of tomatoes but Rex loves them – he likes when I add them to his salads and pasta.  He even eats the NatureSweet® Glorys and Cherubs right out of the container.  The NatureSweet® website gives you lots of recipes so you can try the tomatoes in a variety of ways.

You can find NatureSweet® products nationwide at your local grocery store.  I have found them at Albertsons and Safeway here in Oregon.

Starting this time of year I start drinking more things like lemonade and ice tea. I don’t like adding any sugar to my drinks but I have been looking for an Organic product to use to give my drinks a bit more flavor.  I recently found out that SweetLeaf makes an Organic Stevia Sweetener.   SweetLeaf® is the award-winning stevia sweetener with zero calories, zero carbs, non-glycemic response and NO artificial ingredients.  IMG_1190

What is Stevia? The Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni plant was discovered more than 1,500 years ago by the native Guarani people,  growing in clumps of two or three along the edges of the rainforests of Paraguay. In the beginning, the natives used the leaves for their medicinal benefit, to freshen their breath and to sweeten and mellow the strong taste of herbal yerba maté tea.

Now Stevia is used in many different products.  SweetLeaf offers the SweetLeaf Sweetener, Sweet Drops, SweetLeaf Water Drops and now Organic Sweet Leaf Organic Stevia Sweetener.

The Organic Sweet Leaf Organic Stevia Sweetener comes in a variety of different containers – including a shaker and individual packets.  I love the packets so that I can bring them in my purse and use them when ever I am away from home.  Each little packet contains the sweetness of two teaspoons of sugar and is perfect to add to your drink, coffee, cereal or fruit.

If you would like to try the Organic Sweet Leaf Organic Stevia Sweetener or any of the other SweetLeaf products you can do so HERE.

Rescue Squad #1

Zebra, Kensington Books

 

SOMEONE’S BOUND TO GET
BURNED…
Zoe Westin may be a fire captain’s daughter, but feeding the people in her hometown of Fairview is her
number one priority. Running a soup kitchen is also the perfect way to prove to her dad that helping people doesn’t always mean risking life and limb. But when she’s saddled with a gorgeous firefighter doing community service after yet another daredevil stunt, the kitchen has never been so hot.
Alex Donovan thrives on adrenaline, and stirring a pot of soup doesn’t exactly qualify. He’s not an expert at following the rules either, not even when they come from the stubborn, sexy daughter of the man who’s not only his boss, but his mentor. Determined to show Zoe that not every risk ends in catastrophe, Alex challenges her both in the kitchen and out. One reckless step leads to another, but will falling for each other be a risk worth taking, or will it just get them burned?

A little home improvement can go a
long way…
 
Jesse Oliver was a medic in Afghanistan, but back home in Pine Mountain he’s happy to
switch gears as the Double Shot bar’s new sous chef. When his apartment floods
and his old Army buddy offers the family’s dilapidated lake house as temporary
quarters, Jesse thinks a little remodeling on the creaky duplex sounds like a
fair return favor. That’s before he sets eyes on the gorgeous woman moving into
the other side of the cabin—and discovers she’s his buddy’s kid sister, a.k.a
totally off limits.
 
Kat McMarrin has fought hard for her space, and she’s not too interested in sharing
it. Of course, her job as a physical therapist means she won’t see much of
Jesse, even if he’s a few thin floorboards away—unless she seeks him out. And
with his sculpted body and slow-burn gaze, she might be tempted. Maybe the
fixer-upper projects she has planned for the cabin will keep her mind off him.
Or maybe her instincts to strip the place down will get out of hand…

We occasionally get ants in our apartment. I never know why we don’t leave food out and our kitchen is clean.  Since we have cats I have to be careful what I get to get rid of them.  Recently I received this Rid-Techs Ultrasonic Pest Repeller. It uses ultrasonic technology to get rid of pest.

It’s very easy to use – I just plugged it in and  it sends out low frequency sound waves that people or pets can not hear, but it repels mice, rats, spiders, roaches, mosquitoes and ants.  I have had it plugged in for a month and haven’t noticed any ants and it is spring time – the time we would have in the past gotten them. So I think it is working.  What I like is that there is no harmful chemicals or poisons in the kitchen.  Nothing to clean up the bugs just leave.

1 plug in works for my kitchen and that is the room I have that normally would have a problem. I am sure if you had a large room like a basement or storage shed you would want to use a couple. If you would like to purchase your own Rid-Techs Ultrasonic Pest Repeller you can do so on the link below from Amazon.com.

Stories from Beauville #1
Tigris Eden
Releasing May 19th, 2015

 

Compromise is a word Annabelle Macon knows well. Sacrifices at home, in college and with her career, have all given her the tools to be the person she is. Now it seems she must also make concessions for her long-time love, Jackson Storme.

Six months into their relationship, and he’s already making unrealistic demands. With distance putting that much more of a strain on their relationship, how are the two ever going to manage?

Old insecurities have a way of resurfacing, making Anna feel less than suitable for someone like Jackson. She’s worked hard to get to where she is now. Her life and her work are clashing, making matters worse. Bringing a whole new meaning to work/life balance. But Anna knows that with a little give and take everything will fall into place, regardless of the obstacles that may stand in her way.

Excerpt:

Mom was on the porch watering her plants when we pulled up. She adores Jackson with every bone in her body.

“Ah, my sweet baby girl. Momma’s so glad you’re home.”

She pulls me into her arms, hugging me tightly.

“How’s my Anna?”

Pearl Macon always calls me her baby girl. It is a comfort that makes me feel extra loved.

“I’m good mama, how about you?”

“Oh, you know me. Surviving. You’re Sheriff’s been moping around town. When you’re not around, he’s a surly one. Even tried to give your momma a ticket for speeding.”

I mock gasp and turn to wink at Jackson who is still stuck in a rut. My mother looks over my shoulder and steps out of our hug so she can go to him.

“Get over here and give mama Pearl some lovin’.”

“Ma’am,” Jackson says, pulling her into a hug. It was mechanical. He’s rocked by the whole airport situation and I have no idea how to make it right. I am at a total lost.
“I made some sun tea. Ya’ll come on inside and sit a bit. Then I’ll let you two go and break some walls down.”

“Momma!” I scold. She’s never held back words and feels the need to over share, or in our case, insinuate we only want to have sex.

One of Tigris’ fondest memories, was in the sixth grade, when her teacher read her story, “The Case of The Missing Pepperoni”, out loud to the class. It was then she decided she wanted to be a writer when she grew up. But like all childhood dreams, reality has a way of crashing in and disrupting plans. But her imagination and the voices inside her head never stopped talking. Every dream she could remember was jotted down in her dream journals.
When she’s not writing Tigris marvel’s at life’s gifts. She likes to take pictures of beautiful things. She openly admits that what she may find beautiful another person might not, and she’s perfectly okay with that. She enjoys her music and doesn’t leave home without it. Long pillow conversations with LL about nonsensical things, and hanging out with her boys, when they deem her “cool enough.”
Tigris is a military brat who’s done her fair share of travelling, thanks to her Army father. She’s married to the infamous LL and has three boys. She currently resides in Houston and is actively seeking a book-buddy for the end of the world.
