From healing, to body products, there is nothing that honey can not do even to those small imperfections that seem to appear overnight.

Savannah Bee Company makes products from the bees, and uses each part of the bees honey process to make good for you products.

When Strength is Found in the Routine

When Strength is Found in the Routine

When the word routine pops in your head, I am sure you are thinking of the definition which is defined as a sequence of actions regularly followed; a fixed program.

A couple of weeks ago I woke up early to take my father to the hospital for what should have been a routine procedure to improve blood flow in his lower legs. The main reason I thought this would be so routine was that he had literally had the same surgery with spectacularly positive results a couple weeks prior. This first surgery started at 8 and by 9:30 I had a call that he would be released around noon.

When we entered the hospital and began to repeat the same process we had 14 days prior, I was worried but mainly was looking forward to the process being over, and having my father healthy again.

I stayed with him until the last moment when they wheeled him away and decided that I would pick up some donuts for the nurses (it happened to be Nurses Appreciation Week) to deliver when I returned to pick him up. I drove home wondering if I was making the right decision to leave, wondering if I was really treating this as routine, and not giving in the thought and seriousness I should. Should I stay? Should I go home? I wrestled with that decision and in the end decided to head home.

2017 Mazda CX-9 Signature AWD Review #DriveShop

A Week With The 2017 Mazda CX-9 Signature AWD –  A Review

I was provided an opportunity to test drive the 2017 Mazda CX-9 Signature Edition through DriveShop for a week – no compensation was provided and all opinions are my own.

As a blogger I get some very fun and unique opportunities so when I was given the opportunity to test drive the new 2017 Mazda CX-9 Signature AWD, I jumped at the chance. Given that we were given a car, we decided to take it into the mountains, and give it a little off road time and see how it handled in this curvy road conditions.

The 2017 Mazda CX-9 Signature AWD (All Wheel Drive) was impressive from the moment I saw it. The Machine Grey Metallic and 20″ Alloy Wheels made the car look distinguished yet approachably drivable. The car seats 5 comfortably with an optional 2 additional seats in the rear that fold down to extend trunk space when not in use.

The sticker states that the car gets 20 miles per gallon in the city, and 26 on the highway. While I can not attest to the accuracy of this claim, I can say that we drove a couple hundred miles over the course of the week. Within this week we drove in a variety of road conditions (stop and go traffic, curvy mountains, freeway and city streets) and seven days later we had a tad under half a tank remaining.

The 2.5 turbo engine gave the car power, while remaining a smooth drive. The car was comfortable for me to drive, and while I loved the feeling on the road, I never felt the car was to much to handle.

Socks for Pops – 3 Month Subscription – Sock Club Father’s Day Giveaway – 2017

sock-club-collageWhen I was young one of my favorite things to do was steal my father’s socks. Generally speaking they were larger and much softer then my socks, and inevitably lost in the abyss that was my own sock collection.

Now that I am older I feel the need to attempt to replace all those socks that I stole all those years before. I have found the easiest way to replenish this collection is with a monthly sock subscription.

It also happens that socks make the perfect gift for every father therefore I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give one reader a 3 month subscription to SockClub.
