I know I'm the absolute worst at promoting my books. I'm not internet savvy. But here it is. And I think it's a bargain.
It's probably never been this price before.
This Side of
On Memorial Day weekend, Cecilia Denton
hopped out of her boyfriend Brad’s car and leapt off a bridge. Far from
suicidal herself, she did it to save a jumper, but she had no idea of the chain
of events her heroic stunt would set in motion. Because Cecilia cheated the
Grim Reaper, Death claimed her boyfriend instead. Now, Cecilia and Malcolm, the
stranger whose life she saved, must go on a scavenger hunt of redemption.
Either they prove to Death that there’s more to humans than greed and despair,
or Death claims both Malcolm and Brad.
Malcolm Manchester didn’t ask to be
saved, and he sure doesn’t want to be Cecilia’s partner in a game of Beat the
Clock to restore Death’s faith in humanity. The heat is on Cecilia to give
Malcolm a reason to live before time runs out—or send him off with a bang.
You should watch this documentary on Netflix if you get the chance. A whimsical look at a serious subject.
A trip to the grocery store is becoming like a life and death test I don't have time to study for.
I thought making a list and clipping coupons took a chunk of my pre-shopping day, now I hunt for organic fare I can't afford and scan the ingredients for words that have five or more syllables and were not in a dictionary fifty years ago because they didn't exist. Now I have to worry about GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) that are not even disclosed on the products we eat.
I don't always pass on an item because of the toxins on the label, but I should be given the choice. Personally I think GMOs should be banned (they are in some countries).
So very few things in life are under our control. Shouldn't what we put into our body be the one decision we make for ourselves?
This documentary has been on my To Watch List for quite some time, but I knew I wouldn't be able to eat beef, pork or poultry with a clear conscience after viewing it.
Today is a NO MEAT day for me, so I picked today to be brave and watch this documentary. What I didn't know was that fruits and vegetables are also in question.
Here is what I know, food that is bad for us is cheap. If it's healthy, the average person can't afford it. But can we afford not to eat healthy? Cows are designed to eat grass, not corn. We were not engineered to eat high fructose corn syrup.
I hauled my butt down to the theater and saw Jane Got A Gun. And I do mean hauled my butt down to the theater, because I usually walk (but not this time because it would have been dark by the time the movie let out - so I really don't mean I hauled my butt down there - I drove).
I love historicals. I love westerns. I love romance. This was all three. Throw in a love triangle and some bad guys and I'm a happy camper. Plus I snacked on popcorn and M&Ms in the dark. I practically had the place to myself. Natalie Portman was a great heroine: devoted, determined and in distress. Joel Edgerton was definately hero material: troubled, handy with a weapon and still in love with the heroine. Edgerton has been in some movies I've never seen, so I was pleasantly surprised by his performance. I thought Noah Emmerich (who I've seen in many shows and movies) was an odd choice for Jane's husband, but as the story unfolded, he was the right man for the job. Ewan Mcgregor won himself a spot in the bad guy hall of fame as far as I'm concerned.
I won't spoil the ending. Let's just say I was satisfied.
