Theres an app for that


These days with tablets and smartphones you really do not have to worry about anything not being on the go. Which when you are super busy that is a very good thing to keep in mind. Being super busy and on the go you need stuff to come with you because you just might not have time anywhere but say in the car while someone else drives. These days this also includes real estate you can check out this very cool real estate checklist app so that you can list or buy your house on the go, among other things.

Immigration Lawyers


Immigration is a hot button issue these days. However not everyone comes to this country illegally, many (some of my family included thank you) come legally. That does not mean however that they do not need help. The United States legal system is hard to navigate on your own, immigration and all the hoops you need to go through for that is no different.

One area that is a high rate of immigration is Los Angeles , the city of Angels is attractive for many different reasons not the least of which is the draw of Hollywood. So if you or someone you know plans on making that jump soon check out immigration lawyers in los angeles and be prepared.




Bankrupcy is something that I have seen happen in my family before. Not me personal but those who are close to me have and I always wonder and worry about other friends having the same issue. In one of my pondering moods I got curious and did some research and along with the usual rights of those who are filing did you know there are creditors rights? I honestly didn’t until I started doing my research. It is information I am packing away for the future in case something happens to me, friends or family.

Booklet printing (huzzah internet)


I do a lot of printing and booklet printing so when a friend of mine recently needed some booklets printed she came to me and asked if I could help her booklet printing nyc. Thankfully I was able to help her find something in a relatively fast amount of time that didn’t break the bank. I have to say I am glad I live in an age of the internet where all I have to do is google. Make it so much easier even when I am not local to help friends out.


Household repairs


Thanks to the super cold weather that is blanketing the country again, we have had a lot of knobs break off items that we keep in our garage. I am talking, water knobs and even the knobs on the nice shiny new grill my husband has. Thankfully rather than having to run from store to store I found a store that sold all of these huzzah for online shopping and being able to easily get what I need to make repairs around the house.

Acoustic guitar amp


Time for a little bit more amp chat because, well that seems to be the topic of the weekend here. Hubby’s guitarist has been searching for a long time for an amp for his Acoustic guitar, sometimes you simply must have something different after all. Luckily he found the fantastic crate ca 15 amps at wwbw and we here at the house got to hear a sample of how it sounded and I have to say I really enjoyed the sound. I very much look forward to hearing more.


Auto Insurance


The holidays are over and I don’t know about all of you but I know some friends who got new cars for Christmas. It seems like a smart idea because the dealers offer some great deals (like everyone else) over the holidays. The only thing that I have noticed most people don’t think about is the auto insurance rates for a new car; they do tend to be higher. However if you want to look for something affordable and reliable check out these auto insurance rates, and see if any fit your post holiday budget.


Challenge Updates as of August 1st.

Wow okay I have not done an update of my challenges in a little bit and after going through and updating my challenge page I can say I am completed with all but two.

The Tale of Mally Biddle by M.L. LeGette

When Mally Biddle agreed to spy upon the King of Lenzar and his overbearing knights she knew she was heading into danger. She didn’t know she’d find a family unlike any other.

Posing as a servant in Bosc Castle, Mally serves tea and tends fires for the most dangerous men in the kingdom. Her goal is to learn the truth of what happened sixteen years ago, when the infant princess met her death … a death that is surrounded by more questions than answers.

Along her search for the truth, Mally meets the energized Lita Stump, the strict and matriarchal Meriyal Boyd, and the opinionated Archibald Diggleby. Then of course there are the knights: Leon Gibbs who is slicker than a greased hog, Adrian Bayard, hot tempered and violent, and the worst of the lot: Sir Illius Molick, Captain of the Knights. And then there is Maud, a mysterious woman who just might know everything…

“To say I loved this book is an understatement. Mally is a wonderful character and she encounters so many quirky folks on her assignment. Very well written and engaging story! And an added bonus of a love triangle! I enjoyed it from beginning to end!! I will definitely be looking for more from this author!”

My Review:

This was a fun read for me. The setting is well written and there is almost as much intrigue involved as you had at King Henry VIII’s Tudor court! Mally to me was not what I could call the best spy in the world but she is not the worst either. She is a likeable character and meets many along the way. I think if I had to pick a favorite character it would be Lita, her energy seemed to speak to me and come through the pages and give me a little zap of energy too!

I would reccomend this read to anyone who likes a good story and wants to follow the twists and turns. There were a few bits for me that were slightly cluttered and that is why I say 4 gems instead of 5 but it will still a great read.

My Review:

If you love Fairy myths you are going to love The Circle. I really did enjoy this read and for the most part it kept my attention for the whole of the read. There were a few points where to me it slowed down a little bit or seemed a little bit muddled. That aside over all it is a good book and one that you can get into.

Calum by far to me was the most intriguing of the characters and the one that I wanted to spend the most time with. However the whole cast of characters brings you into the world and holds you there like a captive in the best of ways. If you enjoy a good story and fairies. I think you really will enjoy The Circle.
