“Speed Reading” with Amazon Audible

Have you tried Amazon Audible? Has your mind ever spun in a million directions to the point that you could not sleep? Have you fallen victim of a restless night because although your eyes are tired, your brain just won’t slow down? Imagine that after a long and busy day, all you want to do is come home and hit the sack. The chores are done, and you should be able to relax, but your mind is just not ready to fall asleep. If you do not feel like zoning out in front of the television, how do you settle your brain down? An alternative solution to television is Amazon Audible.  By listening to the books you want to read, you do not have to use those eyes that have been working all day long. Incredibly, by listening to the storyline you can get through large portions of a book you have been dying to read without falling asleep. Amazon Audible is the perfect solution for a person who is restless but not ready to go to bed. Audible enables the user to get through a book much quicker than it would take to read one. The best thing about the Amazon library is that it has a vast selection of books to pick from, and has always had the desired book. Most recently I listened to a book called, Anti Cancer a New Way of Life, through the use of Amazon Audible.

Rockin’ Paws Bath Products

The past few weeks you have followed along with Jade as she got pampered with the Rockin’ Paws Bath Product line. Two weeks later, Jade’s fur is still as soft, silky and shiny as it was immediately following the use of Rockin’ Paws products. The Results Jade’s fur is still shining from her bath two weeks ago. Rockin’ Paws bath products made me a true believer of the power behind the natural ingredients within these products. Every night my husband comes home from work to have his evening cuddle session with Jade, he has made a comment on how soft and shiny Jade’s fur feels. The large quantity of product allows Jade to reap lasting benefits from this product line.  Products Rockin' Paws So Fresh n' So Clean Shampoo This shampoo came from a 16 fl. oz bottle.  Upon application, Jade immediately smelled fresher.   Ingredients: Sulfate free It is a sulfate free formula which is not as foamy as her normal shampoo. This is actually good because sulfate can dry the skin and is thought to be more damaging to the fur. Paraben free The Rockin’ Paws shampoo is also Paraben free. As explained in my last article, An Easy Step by Step Tutorial on How to Clean a Stinky Dog,  using a paraben free formula is like using the best of the best. Parabens are preservatives. The mechanism of action for Parabens are that they are estrogen mimickers. This means they are known to disrupt endocrine function. Endocrine organs in your dog include the pancreas, adrenals, thymus, thyroid, pituitary and sexual organs. Basically any glands that secrete hormones are considered...

Quick Summary of Harvest for Hope by Dr. Jane Goodall

Quick Summary of Harvest for Hope by Dr. Jane Goodall

Quick Summary of Harvest for Hope by Dr. Jane Goodall Harvest for Hope is a book about our food in a world where large corporations are taking over and endangering our lives with food pollution and disease. The Summary Our poor eating habits are hard to correct when corn syrup is in almost all of our foods, GMO is in almost all of our corn crops within the United States, and all of our water sources are being polluted. Dr. Jane Goodall explains the issues in easy to understand terms, and offers plenty of guidance to make better, more educated and mindful decisions on where, and what we eat. By following her instructions, we are promising our families healthier and longer lives. The most critical piece of advice in Harvest for Hope that was offered was to eat seasonally and locally. Coffee Drinkers When buying imports, it is important to buy fair trade and organic as often as possible. As an avid coffee drinker, it was helpful to learn that by buying “shade grown” coffee, certified organic, and fair trade coffee, I can drink more ethically. In doing so, I can reduce chemicals affecting the planet a cup at a time.   Disease In Harvest for Hope, Dr. Jane Goodall also mentions the rising epidemics of obesity and type 2 diabetes within the United States. Our families and children are being poisoned by the quality of food in our country. Harvest for Hope addresses the issue of food being produced cheaply with horrible nutritional value. I read that the way that this food is marketed to children is unethical, which I have to...
