Mesothelioma Awareness Day: September 26


I want to bring awareness to a Mesothelioma, a form of cancer that is preventable!
A disease I didn't know anything about until recently.

Take a look:


  • Mesothelioma Awareness Day is September 26, 2015 and the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance is spreading awareness of the disease and it's causes.
  • Mesothelioma is a very rare cancer, but is completely preventable. Everyone should have access to information on asbestos exposure to keep our families safe, and to encourage world-wide ban on this carcinogen.
  • If you would like to help spread awareness, please donate your social status here: http://www.mesothelioma.com/heather/awareness/#.Veb1FbxVhHw
  • Heather Von St. James is almost a 10 year survivor of mesothelioma, which was caused by exposure to asbestos fibers on her dad's work jacket as a little girl.
  • Heather was diagnosed with Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma just months after giving birth to her daughter, she underwent surgery that involved a heated chemotherapy solution & the removal of her left lung.
  • Her and her husband Cameron now work to spread awareness of mesothelioma globally and this is something that everyone should be aware of.
My Poppy worked for Texaco for his entire life.  He was exposed to asbestos for much of his career.  Sadly, that and smoking, contributed to his lung cancer.  He was diagnosed with it and passed away two weeks later.  

Now there is more than can done.  Preventable measures are available to everyone.  Please, please look into this and if you can donate to the cause, please do!

Just take a look at this:



Please feel free to share this blog post, I actually encourage you to because this is something that everyone needs to know about.  Especially because it is an avoidable cancer.  

Thank you.

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
