Merlin's Nightmare Series: The Merlin Spiral By Robert Treskillard Review


The third book in a new fantasy series that enters into the world of King Arthur, Lady of the Lake, the creation of Excalibur, and the rescue of King Arthur himself as it retells the story of Merlin.

In book three of Robert Treskillard’s Merlin Spiral series, Merlin must find the missing, now eighteen-year-old Arthur before a shadowy pursuer catches him first.

At the same time, Mórgana brings Merlin’s deepest fear to life and sets a horde of werewolves loose to destroy Britain. But when the secret purpose of this nightmare is finally revealed, will Merlin and Arthur find a way to survive—without unleashing an even greater evil?

Cassandra's Review-  Magic and power is the tone in this book in my opinion. I love how it is crafted and the older kids will  enjoy the wielding story line and plots. I would highly recommend reading the whole series and not skipping around in it. The author did a fantastic job and thanks to him we can all share in the world of Merlin.

The Bridge Tender A Sunset Beach Series Novel By Marybeth Whalen Review



Emily must realize that her dreams didn't have to die with her first love. When Emily Shaw, a young widow, learns that her late husband's last surprise for her involves returning to Sunset Beach, North Carolina, to realize an old dream of theirs, she reluctantly embarks on a summer of discovery in the midst of grief. There, in the oasis of the beach community, she meets a host of townspeople with their own broken dreams and unexpected situations. As the island citizens divide over the fate of a nostalgic bridge, Emily happens upon a man who just may be the one to restore her faith in dreams, hope, and possibly love.

Cassandra's Review- Enchanting old dreams and a fun spin of life for Emily. This book makes all kinds of emotions surface in a good way and I loved taking the time to get to know the characters.  I would recommend this book for adults as I think they would connect more.

So, Every28 makes it possible for men to actually give Every28 as a gift to their special lady! Men pay $20 per month and then Every28 delivers “the goods” to her every month. What woman is going to be opposed to her man being sensitive and caring and giving her a gift (in fact, paying for it every month) that includes chocolates? And what man is going to be opposed to never having to go to the store again to buy tampons? See, it’s a win-win all around for everyone!

What comes in the box?

You will receive the exact quantity of products you ordered, as well as some chocolate! (Occasionally in the hot summer months we do have to send something besides a chocolate because they melt)!
Does your chocolate have nuts?

Some do, yes.





Cassandra's Review-  The package is thoughtful and you can customize it how you see fit. I like that you do not have to go to the store and can get products at a good price.  I am not sure if you get more than one little piece of chocolate, I am sure that if you have kids like I do they are going to stare at you until you either share or hide and eat it in the bathroom.  I wonder if you have a choice of gum as I do not care for the ingredients in the one I had in my box.  Its not the companies fault because they are not mind readers and I received a complimentary box of samples for review.  My final thought on this is if you have a man in your life that wants to spoil you, then go for it!  As a single parent I think I will stick to finding bargains while I shop.

Silver Immune Booster is a safe, natural and effective immune system support that may contribute to overall health and wellness.  A healthier immune system allows the body to better resist germs.
Studies have shown that silver has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. Many people consider Silver Immune Booster as their family’s first line of defense contributing to an overall healthy lifestyle.

Common applications:
Topically for cuts, scrapes and burns.

Orally for overall well-being.  Swish in the mouth for 30 seconds, then swallow.

Breathing Silver Immune Booster as a nebulized mist through mouth or nose immediately exposes airborne bacteria, viruses and pathogens in the nose and lungs to the silver ions.

Silver has been used since ancient times to control infections and spoilage.  Silver Immune Booster is a nano silver solution made of pure silver and pure water with a concentration of 10 parts per million.  When used as recommended, it is safe and effective.  It has an indefinite shelf life.



 Here are a few Q&A's about the product from the companies site:

What is Silver Immune Booster?
Silver Immune Booster is an advanced, nano silver solution that enhances immunity.

How is Silver Immune Booster different from other silver products?
Silver Immune Booster’s ionic silver provides an incomplete electron matrix, which in many solutions other than ours, seek to become stable by re-agglomeration.  This re-agglomeration neutralizes the effectiveness of the ion charge and the usefulness of the silver solution.  Our technology allows us to encapsulate the ionic silver in a unique water matrix, preserving the ionic nature and avoiding re-agglomeration.  The result – a  highly-effective solution that is easily absorbed by human cells.  Plus Silver Immune Booster is affordably priced.  If you have been using other silver supplements, and paying too much, switch to Silver Immune Booster to save your health and your money.




Why does Silver Immune Booster cost so much less than other silver products?
Our unique manufacturing process allows us to make our product as effective as leading brands but much more economically.  Our mission is to provide premium products at an affordable price, enabling many more people to live a healthier life.


How should I take Silver Immune Booster?
Some take 1-3 teaspoons a day as an  immune booster.  A child would take teaspoon a day.  If you know that you have been exposed to harmful germs then you may take 2-3 teaspoons three times per day.* It is best if you swish it in your mouth for thirty seconds before swallowing. This gets it into your bloodstream much faster.


Is it safe for pregnant women, nursing mothers and children?
There is no information indicating that young children or the elderly should not use our products.  Children should use the product at a smaller dose, refer to the product label.  If you are pregnant, you should consult your healthcare provider before using this product.

Is Silver Immune Booster gluten free and vegetarian?
Yes our products are 100% vegetarian and gluten free.

Are other silver products with higher concentrations more effective?
A concentration of 10 ppm is as effective as higher concentrations.  Because of the extremely small size of the nano silver particles and the resulting high absorption, our recommended dosage provides ample silver to provide you the help your body needs.  Nano silver particles pass through your system within 24 hours.

Can you give pets Silver Immune Booster?
Silver Immune Booster can safely be used with pets in smaller doses.  We recommend the child-size doses for use with your pets.

What about the quality and safety of Silver Immune Booster?
Our manufacturing facilities adhere to the rules and regulations of the FDA’s Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP).


Cassandra's Review-  My first thought was how does this taste.  I am going to answer by saying its not unpleasant and goes down easy.  I was a little unsure of the swish and swallow since I am used to mouthwash that you can not swallow, so that was a bit hard for me.  This is definitely a new product for me and I will continue to use it.

HangerJack Review

From laundry rooms to garages, small is always at a premium and tools that can help maximize that space are top sellers. HangerJack is a great solution that adds space to even the smallest areas in the home – from hanging shirts and jackets in the laundry to bikes and helmets in the garage to hoses and tools in the shed.



Simply install the HangerJack on the wall; it folds conveniently back onto wall when not in use, freeing up valuable space again.  It is the ultimate product for organization.


Made with a tough polycarbonate, HangerJack can support up to 50 lbs. and is just as versatile.  Its long bar makes it ideal for drying laundry, hanging bicycles and organizing the workshop.  The bar is also resistant to impacts and scratches.

 Deeply Moisturizing and Hydrating Soap great for Dry and Normal to Dry Skin
Dead Sea Minerals Essential to Skin Function Contained in the Soap Include Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium, Zinc and More.
 Great Value and Benefits for A Daily Moisturizing Facial Cleanser.
 Cassandra's review-  I love the smell and lather of this product. It will show signs of working after a few days and as everyone has a different skin tone and type this might not be for everyone and the results will not be the same. If your using this with another product that could cancel the effect as well.
