Need to Reflect? How About A Minute for Me?

If you feel like your life is a constant race from here to there and having to do this and oops... we need to be there...  You need to slow it down for a minute and take "  A Minute for Me."  
I know it is easy to say, but not always easy to do... 

The good thing is that Megan McDonough has written a book to try and help you out.
Image from Amazon

I have had the chance to read the book, A Minute for Me : Learning to Savor Sixty Seconds and I tell you... It is a nice (and much needed) break!

This book comes in at 198 pages but each page doesn't drag on and on.  You get a short story and then the minute for me reflection.  In fact, the minute for me pages are just under half a page long.    Know what that means?  More time for YOU :)

Granted, some people go on vacations to rejuvenate, but in my life.. that is just not possible!  
I can, however, take a few minutes for me.  
Be it in the morning over a cup of tea or coffee or while on your lunch break.  You can take a minute or two to read what Megan has to say and then reflect on it.  
With this book, you do not have to read it all in one day, or even a page at a time. 
Just when you need a minute for you, pick up the book and read and reflect.  

  
I really enjoyed the different pages and some made me think a bit more.. 
One in particular was about snoring... 

She was talking about how she was at a conference and they had to share a room.  Her roommates woke her up throughout the night to get her to stop snoring.  The story then leads to ... " I wonder how many times I've poked and prodded someone, trying to get them to stop doing something they didn't have the ability to stop."  
That made me think... Be it simple as snoring, or things more complex... It made me stop and take a minute... for me, to think and reflect.  Working on making a difference on how I see and approach things in my life.  
It is these types of stories that make me look INSIDE... and take.. a minute for me.  The reflection for that day?  Judgement.  You are supposed to notice what you judge.  why.  how.  

If you are looking for a way to reconnect with yourself, I highly recommend this book.

Worried Your Child Isn't Getting Enough DHA (Or You For that Matter) BrainStrong Review



When it comes to being a mom, I want to be the best I can for Broxton.  I want to know that I did everything I could to make him reach all the potential I know he has in him.
I have heard that he needs Omega - 3  DHA (and good for me, it does like Salmon from time to time.)  
I was recently contacted to see if I was interested in BrainStrong.  


Well, with a name like that, you know you peaked my curiosity!  
So, I had to go check out their site.



FROM THEIR SITE:   
BrainStrong is an entirely new category of supplement. It’s a full line of brain health products that recognizes the brain has different needs at every stage of life. That’s why BrainStrong provides four natural, essential daily supplements with optimized DHA nourishment for pregnant women, toddlers, kids and adults. And all BrainStrong products are powered by life'sDHA™. After all, no matter what your age, you want to live up to your potential. 



BrainStrong has several different products... that are all based upon your age. 


Prenatal
 BrainStrong Prenatal supports a healthy pregnancy and aids in the development of an unborn baby’s brain and eyes.* BrainStrong Prenatal may be used for pre-pregnancy, pregnancy and while breast-feeding.



Toddler
BrainStrong Toddler is an important DHA source for brain health development of children ages 1 to 3.* A toddler’s brain grows to about 80% of adult size by age three and 90% by age five. While children outgrow their need for breast milk and formula, they never outgrow their need for DHA.* BrainStrong Toddler contains more DHA than any other over-the-counter toddler supplement or toddler vitamin.



Kids
BrainStrong Kids is an optimized DHA source of nutrition for kids ages 4 to 12. It helps the cells in the brain, retina, heart and other parts of the nervous system continue to develop and function properly.* BrainStrong Kids contains more DHA than any other over-the-counter kids supplement or vitamin for children.


Adults
BrainStrong Adult is an optimized nutritional supplement for the brain, powered withlife'sDHA™ – an algal DHA – that not only supports brain health, it’s the only brand of DHA shown in any clinical study to result in memory improvement.


Now, I noticed that the Toddler was a powder and the Kids was a gummy.
I know Broxton likes gummies, so I though that might be his best one..
Luckily for us, they sent us both to review.


The three days, Broxton took the gummy fine ... but after that..

There was no way I could get him to try it.
As soon as he put it in his mouth, he started gagging and was trying to spit it out.
It did have an unusual smell to it, so I said fine...

(I then tried to take one as well, but I just could not do it... the taste was not a pleasant one.)
We did have the powder, so I thought I would give it a try.



With the powder, it says you can mix into the following foods:
4 oz yogurt

4 oz pudding
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup mac-n-cheese
1/4 cup mashed potatoes
1 cup 2%milk


So, that was what we did.

I will tell you , make sure you use the whole cup of milk... I didn't the first time and Broxton quickly told me the milk wasn't right... (Marc said it really wasn't noticeable, but since I had mentioned it to him, he knew...)  I then added the rest to make it a full cup and Broxton was good to go.
I am glad that they sent me both for him to try, as I would have hated to not known that the powder was best for him!

Another AWESOME Pirate Book - The Pirates Next Door

If you have a fan of pirates... 

I have a book to recommend!!!!

Remember when I told you about Broxton deciding he wanted a Pirate Book and Marc thinking he just had to have it?  Well, lucky for us... We had the chance to review the newest book from Jonny Duddle.  The latest book is The Pirates Next Door and it is just as cute as the first one we read!!!!




In The Pirates Next Door, there is a pirate family moving to town!  
What?
They are the Jolley - Rogers and they have decided to come aboard and settle into a quiet little town while they work on fixing their boat.  Not to worry, the little girl next door decides to become friends with the little pirate boy!  Her parents are not big on their new neighbors... Not only do they have their big ol' Pirate ship right there in the way... They are a "disgrace" to the neighborhood.  That is just not the best for the neighborhood, as everyone in town makes up all these rumors about them!  

Although it is an adorable book, you can also use it to discuss a deeper meaning...

NOT to judge a book by its cover!  
You see, no one (besides the little girl) even thinks to give them a chance...
One by one, the townspeople all start to gossip... talking nasty behind their backs..
(Don't worry, it isn't deep... and it is rhyming and all, so kids will love it!)



The story and the illustrations had me laughing just as hard as Broxton and once again, Marc was enjoying each page as much as we were!  


Now, I am not going to tell you any more about the story, as it takes the fun out of it all.
But, I will tell you this..
As an adult, I thought it was cute... 

but most important of all, Broxton loved it and if reading it to him again and again brings that much excitement to this house... Marc and I will do it all day long!!!

As with the first book we read, you get a nice little surprise page in there! 
(That just makes it that much more fun to me!)

Also, I thought it was cute that with this book, the book cover jacket also has the Jolley-Rogers family tree on the reverse side!!!!


I am just ready for Jonny Duddle to release a new book!  They are just so much fun!!!!!!!!

Stay in the loop and follow Jonny on facebook.

You can also follow Jonny on his personal blog.

Salonpas Helps to Ease Pain Where and When You Need It Most

Are you in pain at all?  If so.. Keep on reading!
Have I got a couple of pain relief products to tell you about... 

I had a chance to review several products from Salonpas and Marc and I were rather impressed!  
We were sent several of their pain relief patches and also a massage foam and a spray.
I was eager to see how the patches would work, so Marc tried one out on his neck.

He said that it started off rather cool and then slowly over time it warmed up to a nice heat.  
(The "cool" of it was the fact that it was a gel patch... so that was the actual feel of the gel on skin contact.)


Marc said that yes, it did indeed provide relief and he was rather impressed...



 

I decided to give one to my mom and get her opinion on it... 
My mom had knee surgery a bit ago and she wakes up all throughout the night in pain, ever since the surgery...  I gave her one of the pain relief patches and she immediately said she would give it a try.
The next morning, my mom told me that was the first time she did not wake up throughout the night with her knee bothering her.  She did comment that with her getting up to go to the bathroom and then getting back in bed, she noticed that the patch did seem to come off through the night with all of her movement! 
Guess what that meant?  It meant that she headed to CVS that day and bought a box of the Salonpas Patches!  





In turn, I gave my mom a couple different boxes for her to try out for Mothers Day!  
Nothing says I love you like pain relief, right?  :)
She wasn't sure about trying the gel one, as when I tried it, I felt that it got a bit too hot for me.  
I know it is just because my skin did not agree with it, as it did not affect Marc that way.

Well, she ended up trying it and I think she likes the gel patches the most... 
All of us noticed that the gel patch is more of like a cotton type patch with the gel on it. 
(The pain relief patch she originally tried was more of like a bandage type material.)
With the gel patch, it stays on better.  She was able to have it on all night with no issues of it rolling up on the sides while she had it on her.  


The one that cracks me up the most (isn't that funny to say about a pain reliever?) is the Massage Foam.  
I was a bit curious as to what it meant when it said continue to rub in until the crackling sound stops.  
Well,  I tried some on Marc's back and it was the weirdest thing.  You spray this foam (it is ICE COLD) on your hand.  Then, you immediately rub it in the area that is needing treatment.  It sure enough starts this crackling sound and as you rub it into the skin, it fades until it stops.  I have NO CLUE how or why.. 

but it sure did!  About 5 minutes after I put it on Marc, he said the pain in his back was gone.  He then asked me to rub some on to his neck and that is slowly going away now.  
I will say that with it saying massage foam, I guess I was expecting it to be a bit more moisturizing to allow for more massage (like more oily or something) but as soon as you start rubbing it on, it is absorbed.  That would be great for those applying the foam that don't want to have to give long massages, but not so good for those that are on the receiving end that are expecting a decent back massage!  Maybe that is a great gift to give.. you are being thoughtful for their pain, but also aware that you would not have to massage for long periods of time.    If you are not one to want to massage them at all, just go grab them a can of the jet spray and let them deal with it themselves... (I tried that, but Marc wanted the massage... Ha ha.. Lucky for me, it didn't take all day!)  

Here is a brief summary from the company on the products that I mentioned: 

Salonpas Pain Relieving GEL-PATCH HOTSalonpas Pain Relieving GEL-PATCH HOT represents a medical advancement in patch therapy as it features capsaicin (0.025%) and menthol (1.25%) in a soothing cloth that is ideal for minor aches and pain relief in the shoulder, upper back and lower back. 
Capsaicin is an ingredient found in some hot peppers, including cayenne peppers, which makes the peppers spicy hot. When capsaicin is used on the skin topically, it helps relieve pain by first stimulating and then diminishing the intensity of pain signals in the body.


Salonpas Pain Relieving Jet Spray - Using a highly pressurized jet force, the Salonpas Pain Relieving Jet Spray delivers a strong cooling effect to the skin minus any greasy feeling or messy drip.
Salonpas Pain Relieving Massage Foam - Nothing beats a good massage until now. Combining the benefits of self-massage with a powerful, clean drying medicine, provides relief for even tough pain.  With active ingredients menthol (3%) and methyl salicylate (10%), the Salonpas® Pain Relieving Massage Foam is an easy-to-use topical analgesic that delivers pain relief in seconds

Real Life Cinderella Stories and a Hooisers #Giveaway

Ready to win a copy of Hoosiers on Blu-ray?

Real-Life Cinderella Stories

An All New Blu-ray Perfectly Timed For Father's Day Coming On June 5, 2012

Hoosiers is based on the real-life story in the 1954 Milan High School basketball team that miraculously won the 1954 Indiana state championship. In that spirit, we will explore five of our favorite real-life Cinderella stories, including that of the “Miracle on Ice” and the 2004 Boston Red Sox.

Norman Dale (Gene Hackman) is a volatile basketball coach with a dark past who arrives in a small, rural Indiana town to attempt to lead the high school team to victory. This group of underdogs needs all the help they can get, and no one would have ever suspected that it would come from the unlikely duo of Dale and his newly hired assistant coach, the town's recovering alcoholic, Shooter (Dennis Hopper). Under Dale and Shooter's guidance, the Hickory team surprises their town - and themselves - by not only becoming an unstoppable team during the basketball season, but also taking home the 1952 State Championship.


The 1954 Milan High School Basketball Team
Before Indiana adopted the high school class basketball tournament system, teams from all sizes of schools competed against each other for that one coveted title--Indiana State Basketball Champions. In 1954 the reign of the large Indiana high schools ended when a team from Milan High School (with an enrollment of just 161) defeated the Muncie Central team (with an enrollment of 1,662). A shot taken in the last moments brought the score to Milan 32-Muncie 30. Basketball enthusiasts from all over the United States cheered for the Milan Indians and sent messages of congratulations. Thousands of fans gathered in the small town of Milan to watch as a huge parade brought the team back to town.

The 1980 Team USA Men’s Hockey Team
The story of the 1980 American men’s hockey team’s victory in the Olympics is widely known as the “Miracle on Ice.” The United States team, made up of amateur and collegiate players, defeated the Soviet team, who had won nearly every world championship and Olympic tournament since 1954. Team USA later went on to win the gold medal by winning its last match against Finland. In 1999, Sports Illustrated named the "Miracle on Ice" the Top Sports Moment of the 20th Century.

1980 Oakland Raiders
The 1980 season marked the 20th anniversary of the Oakland Raiders franchise. At the beginning of the season, the Raiders were working to try to improve on their 9–7 record from the 1979 season. Against all odd, the Raiders made it to the Super Bowl, and defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 27 to 10. They became the first wild card playoff team to win a Super Bowl. This win gave the Raiders their second Super Bowl victory.
The 2002 Anaheim Angels
In 2002, the Anaheim Angels won their very first World championship in their 41-year history. The Angels made the playoffs as the American League wild card qualifier. Despite only making it to the playoffs on a wild card, they put together a fantastic postseason run. In it, they upset the New York Yankees in the ALDS, beat the Minnesota Twins in the ALCS, and bested the San Francisco Giants in the World Series to ultimately win the title.
The 2004 Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox endured one of the longest championship droughts in baseball history, called by some the "Curse of the Bambino" after the Red Sox's sale of Babe Ruth to the rival Yankees, an amazing 86-year gap before their sixth World Championship in 2004. With the Red Sox’s win coming only eight months after the New England Patriots victory in Super Bowl XXXVIII, the event made Boston the first city to have both a Super Bowl and a World Series winner in the same year since Pittsburgh accomplished the same feat in 1979.

Which Cinderella Story are you familiar with?

Another Hero Has Gone Home - RIP Lance Corporal Steve Sutton

Memorial Day is a day to remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice...
To some, it is the symbol that the pool is open and lets have a BBQ and party like rock stars.. 
To others, it is a day to remember those that we lost...
For Marc, it is a day to remember his brothers that did not come home from war... 
and for my brother and his friends...  this Memorial Day has forever been changed...

This past Saturday, my brother and his friends were notified that one of his best friends, Lance Corporal Steve Sutton, was killed in combat while patrolling an area of Afghanistan.  He was a 24 year old Marine that had just deployed this past January.
My heart aches for his wife and step-daughter... 

My heart aches for my brother and their other friends and family.

But at the same time, I get angry...  Maybe I shouldn't... but I do.
Angry that after 9-11 we were all very well of the losses.. but slowly over time, we very rarely hear of them now.  They are still happening, but just not in the news as often.  Truth be told, Steve Sutton was from Leesburg Ga.  I am not sure if you have heard of it, but that is where Phillip Phillips is from.. 

Well, I surely hope they give Lance Corporal Sutton a "homecoming" like they gave Phillip Phillips.
(Nothing against Phillip Phillips, just wonder where our hearts and mind are these days.)  
I tried using Google to see if I could find more information out about this and I will admit, it took a bit of searching...   If you want to read the articles I found, there is one from Dothan (that was the easiest to find) and one from WALB TV (the local tv station).  What saddens me is that I could ONLY find ONE sentence saying anything about him on the newspaper website.  
Is that how it is now?  Since according to most people the war is "over," those that give the ultimate sacrifice are not discussed these days?  This angers me.. this saddens me... this hurts.. Not just me, but those that have lost loved ones as well...  

Don't even get me started... 

I will not act like I know this hero, as I don't... 
But he was a friend of my brothers...   and I know my brothers heart is aching...
I know that this Memorial Day was changed for those in South Georgia that knew him, those throughout the world that knew him and lets not forget the Marines he was deployed with.  

I just hope that by posting this, one or two people that did not know will now realize... 
Another Hero Has Gone Home.  


Although Memorial Day has passed, will you please take a minute to say a prayer for those that lost a friend or loved one?  
Not just for "Big Steve" but for all of our military.

--------------


CRIME SOLVING WITH A SIDE OF QUIRK



Burned government agent Michael Westen is a tough guy who just happens to have a soft spot for yogurt – especially blueberry. And he is not the first investigator to have a strange-but-endearing habit. Take a look at some of Michael’s brethren who also have strange affections or habits that make them unique characters.



MONK



Tony Shalhoub won three Emmy® Awards for his portrayal of private investigator Adrian Monk, who suffers from a seemingly incurable case of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Only with the assistance of a personal nurse is he able to leave the house to combat germs and solve mysteries.



PATRICK JANE (The Mentalist)

HOUSE



Dr. Gregory House is famously brilliant Chief of Diagnostic Medicine at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital in New Jersey, where he leads an equally brilliant team of diagnosticians. And though House has been described as cynical and cranky, he never fails to deliver on a near-impossible diagnosis… so it’s almost okay that he is addicted to pain medication.





SPECIAL AGENT SEELEY BOOTH (Bones)



David Boreanaz stars alongside Emily Deschanel as Seeley Booth in Fox’s Bones. In addition to serving the FBI, he is a former U.S. Army Special Forces sniper… and he really loves his colorful socks.  Which might be only slightly less quirky than his favorite belt buckle, which says “Cocky.”




FOX MULDER (X-Files)



FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder, played by David Duchovny, has some theories about extraterrestrial activity that are widely considered by his peers as spooky and far-fetched. And when he’s enjoying some well-deserved down time, you might find him throwing pencils into his office ceiling.



DEXTER



Dexter is a genius investigator with a nasty affinity for, well, murdering those who deserve it. Blood spatter pattern analyst by day, killer by night. The series has enjoyed wide critical acclaim and popularity, earning its star, Michael C. Hall, several awards and nominations for his portrayal of Dexter, including a Golden Globe.
