Bear Hunt with @thejamtones Fun!

Ever thought of going on a Bear Hunt?  This fun album will take you and the kids on an adventure that will have you laughing and moving! It’s a blast!Go on a Bear Hunt Today with @thejamtones Fun!

Bear Hunt

Josh and the Jamtones have brought a super fun CD for the kids.  Themed around the title, they have some funny bits of comedy in between hilariously fun songs to keep us moving.  I reviewed the disc in my car on my way to run errands and I have to admit that they had me dancing a bit  LOL.  It’s all good though, I was having way too much fun to be worried about the staring passer-byes.  LOL.  Sometimes I worry about myself, given all the fun I have been jammin’ out to the kids music.  LOL.  I’m having a hard time picking a favorite on this one, so you’ll have to check it out and pick one for yourself.  They do a great job getting us to move and with the happy upbeat voices it’s hard not to have fun with them.  I’m adding this one to the list of music to jam to with the little ones!  In case you are worried, it’s not the kind of bear hunt that harms anyone, it’s a loving bear hunt, but you’ll have to listen to understand why!  Put this one on your list and check it out!

Song List

  1. Swing Low Featuring Father Goose
  2. Bear Hunt
  3. Everybody Dance
  4. Pirate’s Life
  5. I Love U Featuring Father Goose
  6. Death Valley Cornfield of Doom
  7. Sunflower

  10. Lightning Lake of 1,000 Sea Monsters
  11. Green and Spakkled Frogs

Josh and the Jamtones perform live in various places and most recently performed at the Boston Children’s Museum’s 100th anniversary event!  Plus, you can hear them on the Kid’s Place Live station!  They are available for booking at events even!  You could have them take you on a Bear Hunt at your own party!  Now that would be awesome!  If only I were a little kid…  LOL.  You can see a video of one of their birthday performances on YouTube!  It’s an adorable video!  The kids are obviously having a blast!

New Movie Release: Paul Apostle of Christ #PaulMovie #FlyBy

In PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST, Luke risks his life to visit Paul, who is held captive in a Roman prison under Nero’s rule. Together, they struggle against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread their message to the world.

Paul, Apostle of Christ

Paul may have been one of my favorite Apostles.  I appreciate that he didn’t put too much stock into niceties and was straight forward.  It is the opinion of this blogger that life would be a lot easier if everyone were straight forwards.  Of course, it is quite obvious that today’s society can’t really tolerate anyone disagreeing with their own perspective.  Funny, if no one disagrees with us, how might we grow?  As both individuals and Christians?

Paul, Apostle of Christ

PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST is a faith film that doesn’t shy away from presenting the reality of fear, danger and persecution faced by the early believers in the time of Nero . . . and their amazing acts of faith, love and service. Practicing Christian faith often meant a death sentence in ancient Rome, often brought about by horrific means. But in the face of it, the early church continued to serve. Talk to filmmakers about the bold choice of showing what life was really like for the early Christians, and what that means for us today.

Biblical Accuracy or Cinematic Drama? How About Both!

Creators of PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST went to great lengths to be biblically authentic in details of Paul’s life and journeys. Then they created characters to interact with him weaving drama throughout. Talk to filmmakers about the challenges and benefits of bringing a New Testament story to life for 21st century filmgoers.

Newmans Own Product Review

NewmansReview

Newman’s Own

Newman’s Own are all organic and profits after taxes from the company go to various charities, dispensed by Newman’s Own Foundation.  Halloween is all about treats, so here are some great treats that we’ve really enjoyed for you!  They may not be products you can hand out the door, but you can definitely make some fabulous treats with them! We were able to try out many products, as you can see in the pic but there are four in particular that we really raved about!

Organic Mints

Organic Mints Really good!  Newman’s mints will astound you!  I let Monkey take some to school and the package came back empty a few days later!  Apparently they were a hit with the kids!  😀 Organic Licorice

*Tip: Use black licorice to make spider legs!  ‘Glue’ them together with icing or chocolate and stick some on the top for a back.  😀  Or, you could use a round chocolate candy for the back! I have to say, we had a time saying ‘licorice’ after about 10 hours of driving…  I’m thinking road trip exhaustion was to blame….

Though I’m not a fan of licorice, it was apparently really good, as my girls ate two packages on our trip!  The licorice is in the straw shape so Monkey drank her soda with it.  She said it made her soda even better!

Organic Cookies

Organic Cookies Oh man, oh man.  we seriously loved the heck out of the cookies!!!  The chocolate creme and creme filled Mint Chocolate Cookies were all amazing and Chief stole the entire package of Ginger ‘N Creme!  He refused to share, so I can only assume that they were amazing also!!!

Espresso Dark Chocolate Alright, normally I can’t stand dark chocolate, but the Espresso Dark Chocolate was awesome!  It had a slightly different flavor than anything I’d tried in the past.  The expresso was represented subtly and gave it just the right flavor!!!  Trust me, you’ll want to check this one out!

Other Bodies: Adventure, Morality, Romance. #otherbodies #FlyBy

I’ll be honest and say I did not review Other Bodies.  I fully support the belief system, the mission, of the author, Joel Ohman.  However, I had not the time nor the inclination to begin this adventure right now.

I also did not want you to miss out on it, so this post is rather different from my normal posts.  This one is simply a description and a giveaway.

I hope you’ll check it out, share it with friends and so forth.  I’ve heard great things and look forward to reading it!

Other Bodies: Adventure, Morality, Romance. #otherbodies #FlyBy

Other Bodies

For fans of The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner, and Divergent comes a YA dystopian/light romance with a strong female protagonist who is forced to question everything…

In a world where immersive VR suits distort what is real from what is not, and the AI Personhood Act blurs the lines between body and bot, the choices sixteen-year-old Hattie Martins faces are very personal.

Welcome to Hattie Martins’ dystopian Philadelphia, where everything is not as it seems…

Just as her life is looking up–a new job, new friends, a new date–Hattie discovers not all progress in her beloved, futuristic Philadelphia is for the best. Societal regrets can become personal regrets in an instant.

Choices don’t always come with second chances, and when they do the cost can be unimaginable. How far will she go to undo her greatest regret? And worse yet, what will she become if it’s too late?

In a world where bots are equal to bodies,

what does it mean to be alive? 

What is real? 

Which bodies matter? 

What about the other bodies?… 

In this blistering new young adult novel from the #1 bestselling author of the Meritropolis series, readers will question everything they know about life and reality in a unique dystopian adventure that is equal parts moral dilemma and romance.

If you enjoy Veronica Roth, James Dashner, or Suzanne Collins then this is the story of the year you won’t want to miss. BUY NOW.

*Subject matter includes references to euthanasia, abortion, and teenage pregnancy. There are NO sex scenes and NO curse words. This is a stand-alone book with a complete story from beginning to end. There are NO cliff-hangers and this is NOT a part of a series.*

Other Bodies: Author Joel Ohman- Adventure, Morality, Romance. #otherbodies #FlyBy

Joel Ohman

Joel Ohman lives in Tampa, FL with his wife Angela and their three kids. His writing companion is Caesar, a slightly overweight Bull Mastiff who loves to eat the tops off of strawberries.

Joel is the author of the #1 bestselling Meritropolis series–“The Hunger Games meets The Village with a young Jack Reacher as a protagonist” and the new YA release, Other Bodies.

OrganicaPure Review

Organica.Review

Between myself and my teenage daughter, we have a LOT of lotions around the house.  There isn’t much difference that we can tell, aside from scent mainly.  Of course, there are a few exceptions, but not many.

Organica Pure seems to be one of those few and far between lotions.  Instantly after rubbing it into your skin you feel a softness that has no match.  It’s the closest I’ve ever felt my skin be to the softness of a baby’s skin.  That is an amazing result if you ask me!  Who doesn’t love the feel of a Little One’s cheek???

I tried two different lotions: Cocoa & Honey and Aloe Vera & Honey.  While they both yield similar results, the Cocoa & Honey is my favorite.  It could be a psychological chocolate thing.  LOL.  The Coacoa & Honey leaves your skin amazingly smooth with a subtle scent that doesn’t overpower perfume or other natural smells.

The Aloe Vera & Honey lotion also did an amazing job of softening my skin.  It has been said that aloe vera helps with aging skin and the company points that out in the description. If you love the smell of aloe vera, you’ll love this one.  The scent is a little stronger than the other but it’s still a great lotion.  I’m just not a lover of strong scents.

One thing I love about their product, that really adds an additional perk, is that the bottles have a lid that you can turn sideways to close so that you don’t have to worry about accidental discharge.  Extremely important in a house that frequently has curious little hands investigating things!

At $15 a bottle, Organica Pure does an amazing job of creating organic lotion that truly makes a difference in your skin from the moment it is rubbed in and beyond.  Organica Pure also offers FREE SHIPPING on all orders!  That’s always a win!  They have many other products to help your skin, my favorite (with all this pasty skin) would be the sunburn treatments but they also have bath salts, wash gels, stretch mark creams and many others.

Judging by the amazing results I got from the lotions, I’m pretty certain that the others work equally well, if not better!  You’ll want to check them out, I promise!  Getting that spa treatment feel without that spa treatment price is an added bonus!
