Open Letter to the Carrie Fisher Body-Shamers…

31 December 2015

1 Comment

Saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens tonight for my oldest son’s birthday…so much better than I expected. But after having read articles about some of the body-shaming comments toward Carrie Fisher, I have some of my own comments for (and about) these people. First, were you even watching the same movie? I thought she looked fantastic. You […]

Preview: Liporidex NRG

21 December 2015

Disclaimer: yes, I received product to do the review, but the product itself has no bearing on the review. (Wouldn’t make it much a review, then, would it?) I was initially contacted by Liporidex via twitter, and to be honest, I wasn’t initially interested in their products, much less doing a review. So what did […]

Reviews Ahead…

Just a heads-up…but have some reviews in the pipeline coming up. One is something like a year in the making (or so, will have to check emails and explain at the time it’s posted), one is new, out-of-the-blue, and another is totally unsolicited, just because I like the product. And if you happen to have […]

Review (and Free Gift Offer!): Glory Days by Max Lucado…

19 August 2015

0 Comments

Two disclaimers (one standard, one not so much): first, I did in fact receive a copy of the book in exchange for my review. Even cooler is that it was an Advance Reader’s Copy/Uncorrected Proof. But it in no way swayed my review. Second, and this is slightly embarrassing (and pretty funny, actually): it wasn’t until […]

The Fast Metabolism Diet (Review)

7 June 2015

0 Comments

On occasion something comes along that is either extremely amazing or overly underwhelming, and a review is in order even if it isn’t a solicited or arranged one. This is definitely one of those times. My wife discovered this a little over two months ago, and was impressed not so much by the weight loss […]

The Strangest Review and Giveaway I’ve Ever Had…

8 February 2015

12 Comments

I’d been approached by a firm working with Leonisa, a company that previously I’d not heard of…who makes ‘innovative, high-end intimate apparel’…that is, shapewear and undies. Intriguing. But strange. So I thought about it, and said ‘why not?’. I mean, I do wear underwear. Regularly. For the review I chose the Leo 2 Pack Stretch […]

This book intrigued me. In first intrigued me in the offer I received to review it, because it was endorsed by none other than Mother Teresa, who said of it: “I pray for all who read this book that they may come to follow Jesus more closely in their whole lives. He has not called […]

Rhyme to Read (and Giveaway!)

28 June 2014

I originally received an email from the co-author of the reading app Rhyme to Read in April about the possibility of reviewing. It sounded like a great program, but is current available for iPad only, to which I am deathly allergic and morally opposed. (Did you note the sarcastic font and accompanying reverb when reading […]

Mrs. Renfro’s Ghost Pepper Salsa Review

1 January 2014

1 Comment

  One of the recent Christmas traditions has been for some form of hot sauce to end up in my stocking. I like hot sauce…at one point, we had 13 different kinds. But this year, Mrs. Renfro’s Ghost Pepper Salsa made its appearance. While technically not a hot sauce, it’s close enough…especially since the kids […]
