Photo Stick

I have been making family photobooks utilizing Costco services. Each one is precious. I have so many pictures, duplicates etc that I become confused and lose track of some. This device is so COOL!

Check it out: 

I am now branching out to making movies. Not just the standard 8 or 16mm but creative, story-based, professional looking. I need a lot of storage, organization, and ease of access. This device does it all.

Dolly Parton Movies – Wholesome Family Entertainment

I am a fan of Dolly Parton Childhood inspired movies.

In 2015 I enjoyed the television showing of “A Coat of Many Colors” It was well done and presented her childhood in the early 1950’s in a rural town. She was and is a determined spunky talented artist with a business mind.

The movie shows bullying, love, trust and family in a truthful way that emulates families today in many ways. They did not have a lot of material items, worked hard and were neighborly.

I highly recommend the movie for ownership for repeat showings.

Sequel presented on television in December 2016

In 2016 I found and recorded the sequel to “Coat of Many Colors” with is “Circle of Love”. It follows Dolly’s whole family again with a strong emphasis on her early childhood goal and dream of being a star. She has certainly followed through on her dream and is an icon in the industry. But… she has NEVER deviated from her first love: Father God.

I am thrilled to be able to share her movie access with you via my relationship with Amazon as an Affiliate. I do hope you purchase both movies and more if you desire.

Healthy Supplements

Supplementation is a personal preference. I choose to follow the advice of Stephen Cherniske, who was our Chief Scientific Officer at Univera. Univera’s products are not considered supplements but powerful agents that give us life altering help in the aging process. They have been thoroughly tested in double-blind studies in Univera’s professional laboratories to address our bodies at our DNA level. More on Univera on other pages.

TODAY – Please allow me to introduce you to a few supplements available via health food stores locally or on Amazon. I prefer the brand NOW. Stephen and his wife Natalie, MD have researched and personally use NOW products.

You will find these products included in my Morning routine for a powerful nutritionally rich protein drink!

Book Reviews

With the current focus on our Brain, I would like to introduce you to an expert in the science of our Brains. She is a Dr. with the wisdom to translate the technical details of our brain into life changing awareness.

Dr. Carolyn Leaf covers all subject matter concerning the brain including relationships, the differences between men and women, and a whole raft of useful training. 

Here we have another favorite author of mine. Pastor Caspar McCloud. He is a former rock star who found the Lord in an unusually powerful way. His books not only reflect his personal journey but enlighten us to Father God’s Word 

And… for fun, a story of a young girl and her quest for life.

The Author of Tools of the Titans – Powerful

I have been following Tim Ferriss lately. So far, I like his books. His latest book, “Tools of the Titans” is intriguing.

He coined the term “The New Rich” back in 2008. He explored what’s referred to now as Gen-x. The group of us between the ages of 35 – 50. They are entrepreneurial, ready to work hard but limit the time to gain wealth. The  4-hour work day, owning their business and loving life. Loving life means focusing on the things that are truly meaningful. We all talk about them, but few attain the satisfaction of knowing we spent enough time with our spouse – we are truly friends, enough time with our children – we are truly parents, enough time aiding and supporting our community – we are truly good neighbors.

And… becoming wealthy in the process (both in time, fame, reputation and money). Building successful businesses that employee others as the W-2 earners while we train them to trust them for operations and promotion. Here is the verbiage from the author himself on his latest book. Please see below for several of his accomplishment. Please enjoy them all.

about tools of titans

from the author, Jimmy Ferriss:

“For the last two years, I’ve interviewed nearly two hundred world-class performers for my podcast, The Tim Ferriss Show. The guests range from super celebs (Jamie Foxx, Arnold Schwarzenegger, etc.) and athletes (icons of powerlifting, gymnastics, surfing, etc.) to legendary Special Operations commanders and black-market biochemists. For most of my guests, it’s the first time they’ve agreed to a two-to-three-hour interview, and the show is on the cusp of passing 100 million downloads.”

“Tools of Titans” contains the distilled tools, tactics and inside baseball you won’t find anywhere else. It also includes new tips from past guests and life lessons from new ‘guests’ you haven’t met.

What makes the podcast and this book different is a relentless focus on actionable details. This is reflected in the questions. For example: What do these people do in the first sixty minutes of each morning? What do their workout routines look like, and why? What books have they gifted most to other people? What are the biggest wastes of time for novices in their field? What supplements do they take on a daily basis?

I don’t view myself as an interviewer. I view myself as an experimenter. If I can’t test something and replicate results in the messy reality of everyday life, I’m not interested.

Everything within these pages has been vetted, explored and applied to my own life in some fashion. I’ve used dozens of the tactics and philosophies in high-stakes negotiations, high-risk environments or large business dealings. The lessons have made me millions of dollars and saved me years of wasted effort and frustration.

I wrote “Tools of Titans”, my ultimate notebook of high-leverage tools, for myself. It’s changed my life, and I hope the same for you.”

Siren for Safety – STOP Attacks

Times are tough. Attacks are prevalent. Unbelievable but thousands of people, children, are attacked, taken and abused daily. Keep your whole family safe. These attach to a purse strap, belt buckle, etc. Easy to use and secret cancel button.

Most people will react to a very loud noise that is becoming more common these days. Car alarms, not so much. But, when it signals real danger, people respond.

Here are the products recommended from Amazon. The book is just for fun on a very serious web page.  🙂

Hello Shoppers! – Only the Best

Welcome to my personal review site. I only place items here that I can ‘stand behind’.

Each item is a result of my personal use or a trusted friend and colleague. We are excited to bring you the latest or the Best in Books, Travel, Fitness and Personal Care. In some cases, we are an independent associate for the company and will tell you how you can also purchase wholesale. In other cases, we may be an independent affiliate and receive a small commission for our recommendations if you purchase. Either way, this is NOT about money but about bringing TRUTH to Shopping.

I personally really do not appreciate false claims or scams. I am very sensitive to what I lovingly call Injustice. I have been in business for many years (over 40) – I am an entrepreneur  LOL – and have been privileged to work with some really experienced and special people. I have also, mostly in the rental business, come across persons that believe ‘we all owe them something. – they are entitled. Being in court is not a fun place for me. I always win but it is not worth the struggle. But… back to injustices: I do not tolerate them well at all.

On to more pleasant things. The book reviews will be slow as I must recount my experience and the gist of the book contents without ruining it for you. I get so excited sharing that I sometimes give away the theme.

The most frequent posts will be products we enjoy and are available from Amazon. Amazon is responsive and priced well. They stand behind their product sales and handle all customer interactions. This is a benefit to both you and me. They have relationships with the suppliers.

My biggest product review will be for Wealthy Affiliates. I cannot say enough good things about this amazing company. They only have one product but it is wrapped in months of excellent training, years of combined experience from the community, a well established and embraced

‘pay it forward’ program and the best commission schedule in the affiliate industry.

And finally the company that is a leader in Non-GMO, Organic, hand-harvested Aloe, completes double blind scientific studies in their own laboratories – all products are human DNA verified for excellence, is published in Medical journals, holds patents in major alternative health breakthroughs (such as teaching our bodies to burn FAT for fuel) and develops and manufactures products – each designed and performs in the life giving repair and building of our body at the cellular level. This company is Univera.

I have placed some links to the Best Selling Books by Chief Scientific Officer Stephen Cherniske. Each of these books is backed with solid science – no hype – years of experience and the last book “The Metabolic Makeover – It’s All About Energy” is co-authored with his double board certified wife Natalie Kather, MD.
