June 8, 2013

I haven’t posted for a while and I apologize.  The hubby took a one week vacation and a good time was had by all.  Such a good time in fact, that I failed to post on my blog.  I shall now rectify that.  Let’s begin with cleanliness.


I’m told that cleanliness is next to godliness, but in my dictionary cleanliness is below cleaner, above clean room and across from clerk.  What is next to godliness or at least next to divine are Artemesia soaps, salts and scrubs.  These are locally made by a lovely woman whom I met at a party at D.’s and who was kind enough to give me a free sample.  And what’s more is Ms. Conklin does not just make any soaps, she makes Cerveza, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mojito and Strawberries with Sparkling Wine along with many others.  For those of you who religiously (and cleanly) read my blog (and you know who you are G.), how could you pass that up?  Having personally used the sample I was given as well as the sample the hubby was given, I can assure you that these are high quality and beautifully scented soaps.  For everyone who loves a good soap, Ms. Conklin’s web site is http://www.byArtemesia.com and is permanently linked to my site under Links to Cool Sites.

Go check her out.  She does soaps, oils, lotions, gift ideas and more!

Now, for beer.


This is Mr. Pineapple Wheat Beer from SanTan Brewing Co., Chandler, AZ.  Pineapple?  Pineapple?  I eventually had to send in a team of scientists to find the pineapple because my taste buds sure couldn’t, so this is false advertising as far as I’m concerned.  I thought I recognized the brewing company SanTan so I checked previous posts.  Sure enough, SanTan distributes Devil’s Ale, the nastiest beer I’ve tasted yet.  People who drink beers brewed by SanTan probably also like Harry Potter Bertie Bott Jelly Beans, vomit flavor.

And finally, this week’s movie – The Awakening


In post-World War I England, a boarding school haunted by a boy’s ghost calls on Florence Cathcart, who disproves hoaxes for a living. But Cathcart senses something truly strange about the school, leading her to question her belief in the rational.

You know, I really hate when a movie or book fails to give me a definitive answer on what happens to characters at the end of the film.  Don’t leave me to guess or speculate as this just leads to frustration.  Stop.  It.  However, if you enjoy reading Lovecraft (who is guilty of the same crime), you might enjoy the rampant confusion of this film.  Probably not though.
