So Many Uses For Fresh Lemons!

My family goes through a lot of lemons every week. When Limoneira offered to send us a box of fresh of lemons of course I said yes! The lemons were nice and juicy.

They can be used for: Cooking (sweet and savory dishes) I had the best Lemon Ricotta Waffles at FireLake Restaurant at the Radisson Blu hotel!

Fear Of The Walking Dead Is Back!

I was a little late watching the first season of Fear Of The Walking Dead. I love to stream tv series because I don’t like watching commercials. This is one of the main reasons I love that Hulu offers that option. Watching the same 2 or 3 commercials every few minutes was working on my very last nerve so I upgraded my account as soon as the No Commercials subscription became available.

The whole idea behind the idea of Fear Of The Walking Dead is what happened before The Walking Dead. As a fan of The Walking Dead I Continue Reading »

The Wild Life Prize Pack Giveaway

September 9th is the big day. The Wild Life will be coming to theaters everywhere. Around that time school will be back in session. A trip to the movies to see this movie with the family will be a great way to relax. From what I have seen so far, this looks like a movie the entire family will enjoy. From the over-exuberant parrot Mak to the snack-obsessed tapir Rosie, from the persnickety echidna Epi to the acrobatic pangolin Pango, from the ditzy goat Scrubby to the  commonsensical kingfisher Kiki and the always-cool chameleon Carmello, things are larger-than-life on a tropical isle that is pure wild animal paradise.  Then Robinson Crusoe, a marooned human, arrives in the midst of a furious storm, and their lives are forever changed by this bewildering Continue Reading »

Storks Is Coming To Theaters September 23, 2016

I have talked about my love for animation films before. I don’t think I will ever get tired of watching them. I am looking forward to seeing the newest Warner Brothers movie, Storks when it comes out on September 23, 2016. Storks deliver babies…or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for a global internet retail giant. Junior, the company’s top delivery stork, is about to be promoted when he accidentally activates the Baby Making Machine, producing an adorable and wholly unauthorized baby girl. Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble before the boss gets wise, Junior and his friend Tulip, the only human on Stork Mountain, race to make their first-ever baby drop – in a wild and revealing journey that could make more than one family Continue Reading »
