BOMBS OVER NOWHERE Debut Album and my college commute

So, I listened to "It's Gonna Find You" , as soon as the song ended I said, more!  As in I want to hear more of this music. Bombs Over Nowhere has a sound that reminds me of music I used to listen to on my way back and forth to college when I commuted for a brief period at the end of my degree work.  Never mind my reason for enjoying this band. Have a listen for yourself and see what you think, oh and there is two songs on this post so there is more, and even more- their Debut EP is set to be released on Feb 25, 2014. Bombs Over Nowhere - "It's Gonna Find You" Official Video Aaron Espe and busbee: " Bombs Over Nowhere is a collaborative project from Aaron Espe and busbee , two musicians who’ve taken the best parts of their solo work – Espe’s voice and introspective lyrics, busbee’s chart-topping songwriting skills – and rolled them into something bigger. It’s uplifting pop/rock, packed with the raw emotion of Glen Hansard and the polished craft

Seven ideas for Seven days with The Family Breakfast Project

What is your family's morning time like? My husband likes to greet the kids with a "good morning" everyday in the kitchen. My kids usually don't give a vocal response, it's more of a "look", like why are you talking to me so early in the morning? I might be guilty of that too. Breakfast time is a time to connect with the family at the beginning of a new day. Some mornings we are running late or in a hurry to get out the door so those good mornings aren't happening.  One thing that makes mornings easier is to set out the cereal, bowls, spoons, glasses, and napkins so the kids can help themselves. I keep the milk and juice at the front of the fridge and grab and go foods like yogurt in sight too.   Cheerios has partnered with the Family Dinner Project , to help families access the benefits that a family meal can give not just in feeding the family, but connecting with each other. head over to for a BOGO free coupon.   Seven Days to Family

How my high school typing class taught me to type but not to right.

I use Grammarly's  plagiarism checker  because I like cats, but not copy cats.  I've been typing since high school. I took typing 1 and 2 in high school just because I liked to type. I had no interest in becoming a secretary or work at a job where I would be typing. The challenge was to see how fast I could type without errors. Spelling mistakes were frowned upon by the teacher, but sentence structure was not part of the lesson. Now that I've entered the blogging world, I type all day long. Well, not all day but my kids think I do. Once I write a post and click the publish tab I go back and read the post. I always find spelling mistakes or sentences that don't  make sense. Even though I re-read the post before I published it I find mistakes. (missed the s on sentence) When you write a post or article check your work on Grammarly's   plagiarism checker  to be sure you aren't using content from another source that is not yours. You can also check to see your cont

Do good with your unwanted goods. Donate them to The Goodwill Store.

Hear the story of Canice , a 22-year-old. She was living in her car and with the help of her sister she learned about Goodwill' job training programs. She participated in a Goodwill training program and now she is now a registered nurse assistant.     When you are de-cluttering or clearing out the closets take your stuff to Goodwill and donate it to the Goodwill Store,(usually at the back of the building is where they accept goods) then go around front and shop. I find great USA made dishes and decorations at The GoodWill Store.

GIMME SHELTER film review . See GIMME SHELTER in a theater near you starting Friday, January 24, 2014.

Last night I went to the screening for Gimme Shelter staring James Earl Jones, Rosario Dawson, Vanessa Hudgens and Brendan Frasier.   The film opens today in theaters. Gimme Shelter is not a film for your entertainment, it's a film for your heart and soul. The writer/director, Richard Krauss and star Vanessa Hudgens spent time in a shelter to learn more about the lives of homeless pregnant teens. The girls in this film are from the shelter are actual residents not actors. Vanessa Hudgens lived with them for weeks. Even though I watched the trailer and read the synopsis before I saw the film. I came home to my own cozy warm house feeling colder than the bitter cold outside. Gimme Shelter is just that, Apple (Vanessa Hudgens) is trying to get away from the broken family life, the cold, the hunger, and abuse. We watched Apple trying to get out of the apartment building while her mother (Rosairo Dawson) holds her back. She escapes with the clothing on her body and a few dollars for a
