The Real Deal

Have You Ever Wondered... Is that certain book really good? Does that product really work? So have I. From Indie authors and musicians to local products or nationally advertised, I can't tell you the countless products I've bought as seen on TV only to find out that they don't work at my house, the book was really a bunch of hype, the music was not what I had hoped for or a movie was a yawn. If you want an honest opinion, you will find it here. Although I do lots of book reviews, I also check out lots of other products and let you know if they really live up to their ads or their hype. Stay tuned, and check in often. You never know what I'm going to talk about next.


Excellent mid range sound!

iHome Bluetooth Rechargeable Mini Speaker System showed up and I couldn't wait to try them out. The mini speaker system is two iHome speakers that expand when you want to listen to them and you can close them for easy carrying. The speakers come with their own drawstring bag. To use, plug the cord into each speaker, and one into the headphone port of your device. Turn on the speakers. They glow blue when they are in use and red when they’re recharging. 

It took less than an hour to charge them to full capacity. My daughter was getting married and she wanted to listen to something calming. I took my net book and the iHome Bluetooth Rechargeable Mini Speaker System to the dressing room. She was also impressed with how crystal clear the sound was in such a tiny little speaker. We just couldn't get over it. Each one is about the size of a child’s fist and you just can’t beat the quality for the size. 

Take them to a picnic, a party, or camping. It makes great sound more portable. They also make a great holiday gift for your audiophile. I’ll recommend these to all my traveling, music loving friends.


The Devastating Truth: DRINK

DRINK, The Intimate Relationship Between Women and Alcohol by Ann Dowsett Johnston, could be the most controversial book of our age. Startling in its clarity, Johnston shines a halogen light on a subject that few people seem willing to talk about. DRINK, in the short of it, is about the frightening rise of alcoholism among women and the way alcohol affects them, their lives, their families and how it has already begun affecting the next generation. This issue is not a sleeping giant, but a ravenous, insatiable coyote, greedy as the grave.
Johnston’s careful brushstrokes of her own personal battle with alcoholism, paint a painful and terrifying picture of what is going on all over the civilized world. She blends candid interviews from alcoholic women in all walks of life, along with some eye opening, keep you up at night facts from the marketing aspect.

In this book, you will see a woman you know,  or several. You may, as I did, see yourself. I believe the adage, the truth will set you free. Find out what drives women to alcoholism and the marketing campaigns that target them. It is possible to be informed and make changes. The rise of alcoholism in women promises to be one of the most devastating to ever plague the civilized world and if you don’t believe me, get a copy and see for yourself. I can’t recommend this book enough.
