Posted on March 27, 2018 in Announcements Movies

Marvel Studios has begun principal photography in Los Angeles, California, on its newest film, “Captain Marvel.” The production is shooting in and around the greater Los Angeles area, which will also serve as the production base for the film. The production will also shoot on location in Fresno, California, as well as locations in Louisiana, including Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

Set for release in the United States on March 8, 2019, Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” is directed by the writing/directing team of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, whose credits include “Mississippi Grind” and “Half Nelson.” An all-star collective of accomplished writers penned the screenplay, including Meg LeFauve (“Inside Out,” “The Good Dinosaur”),  Nicole Perlman (upcoming “First Man,” Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy”), Geneva Robertson-Dworet (“Tomb Raider,” upcoming “Sherlock Holmes 3”), Liz Flahive & Carly Mensch (“Glow”), and Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck.

The film stars Academy Award® winner Brie Larson (“Room,” “Kong: Skull Island”), Samuel L. Jackson (Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “The Hateful Eight”), Ben Mendelsohn (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” “Ready Player One”), Djimon Hounsou (“Blood Diamond,” Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy”), Lee Pace (“The Book of Henry,” Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy”), Lashana Lynch (“Brotherhood,” “Fast Girls”), Gemma Chan (“Humans,” “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”), Algenis Perez Soto (“Sambá,” “Sugar”), Rune Temte (“Eddie The Eagle,” “The Last Kingdom”), McKenna Grace (“I, Tonya,” “Gifted”), with Clark Gregg (“Live by Night,” “Marvel’s The Avengers”), and Jude Law (“Spy,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel”).

The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.  Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Based on the Marvel comic character first appearing in 1968, “Captain Marvel”  continues the lineage of epic big-screen adventures chronicled in “Iron Man,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Thor,” “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Ant-Man,”  “Captain America: Civil War,” “Doctor Strange,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “Thor: Ragnarok” and, most recently, “Black Panther.”

Roto-Rooter 101

Posted on March 25, 2018 in Roto-Rooter

Have you heard of Roto-Rooter?  Well, until I became an Ambassador, I had only heard of the brand that comes to the house.  I didn’t know that they had a line of products that you could purchase.  I’ve been purchasing a more expensive, leading brand.  Roto-Rooter is fabulous, and has unclogged my drains on more than one occasion, now.

I have really, really long hair, now.  And, with Roto-Rooter, the clogs are being removed from the drains.  It’s ridiculous how much hair I lose per shampoo.  I love that I know my drains are clear when I use Roto-Rooter.

Being that my favorite product is the Hair Clog Remover, I want to talk about it, first. It removes the hair clog ups 50% faster than other products. It works so well. I can’t get over how clear my drains are. The husband can’t believe how fast our water goes down the drains, when using the Hair Clog Remover.

You know that gunk that gets into your kitchen drain?  Well, I have the product for you, to clear it out.  This product, Build Up Remover, will prevent slow running drains, and more.  I love Build Up Remover.  I don’t put grease in my drain, but some seams to get in there anyway.  With Build Up Remover, it gets removed almost instantly.  My mother-in-law loves this product.  She used some of mine, then went out and bought her own.

There’s also a Gel Clog Remover, by Roto-Rooter.  It clings to the clog, and gets rid of it.  And, it starts working Immediately.

Lastly, I want to talk about Roto-Rooter Septic Treatment. We tried this on our septic tank, just recently, and it seems to be working great. Keeping just enough bacteria in the septic system, but cleaning out what needs cleaned out.

All in all, I found my new go-to brand for all my clogging needs. Check out the site to see how/where to use each of the products listed, and where not to use them.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Posted on March 25, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide Movies

Star Wars: The Last Jedi was a magnificent film. It’s my favorite in the Star Wars series, so far. My 6 year old sat through it, and didn’t blink an eye. As did my 20 year old, and her beau.

Talk about action, this film was filled with action. My wife would look away on the action filled parts, too nervous to see what was going on.

Bring it home for Easter, your family will love it.  Sitting down to watch a movie together, on the Holidays, that’s what we do.  Make it a new tradition in your home, too.

Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi—the next action-packed chapter of the Star Wars saga— Earned critical acclaim and the No. 1 spot atop 2017’s list of highest-grossing films. The visually stunning film welcomes the return of original characters, including Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Yoda, R2-D2 and C-3PO and further explores the deepening journey of the saga’s new members, Rey, Finn, Poe, and Kylo Ren. Now families can bring home the movie digitally in HD and 4K Ultra HD™ and via Movies Anywhere on March 13, two weeks before the 4K Ultra HD™ Blu-ray, and Blu-ray™ disc on March 27. This release also marks Disney’s first title available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc in both Dolby Vision™ HDR and Dolby Atmos® immersive audio, delivering consumers a transformative viewing experience.

The Sleep ZZZ Pillow is so Great!

Posted on March 25, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide kids Reviews

My little one, Jacob, age 6, loves the Sleep Zzz Pillow. He says he’s comfy all night, and doesn’t wake up until morning. It’s made him sleep through the night, when he couldn’t before. I’m not saying it’s a miracle worker, but it is for us. Now, the only time he gets up is to go potty, and he can’t wait to lay back down, and sleep with the Sleep Zzz Pillow.

Help your child fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer! The Sleep Zzz cuddles your child. It is like being held by a parent to fall asleep. The perfect shape for your little one!

If your child has a sensory problem, they say this is the pillow you have to get. Children love the 3mm pile cuddle fabric. It is super fuzzy!!

There are so many designs to choose from, and you can even have your child’s initials put on it. The Sleep Zzz Pillow will work for your child, like it has for mine. I love it, and we won’t be going back to a regular pillow for a long time.

Welch’s Mixed Fruit Snacks for Easter will go over great

Posted on March 24, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide Reviews

Welch’s Fruit Snacks are a great gift to give out for Easter. I’m going to stuff some packs in the Easter Eggs, for our annual Egg Hunt. Jacob, age 6, loves Welch’s, so when he opens up his eggs to find the Welch’s Snacks, he will be pleased.

I’m also going to be sending a box into his classroom, so that the teacher can give each child a portion controlled snack, before Easter break. And, these fruit snacks are really cute because they are shaped for Easter.

Great facts about Welch’s Fruit Snacks:

  •  Excellent Source of Vitamin C
  •  Good Source of Vitamins A & E
  •  Fat Free
  •  Gluten Free
  •  No Preservatives

However, don’t forget that Welch’s also makes Fruit Rolls, and Fruit and Yogurt Snacks. These are both excellent as well.

You can find these at your local retailer.  I just saw them at Walmart, in the Seasonal Section today.

Seriously Good Freezer Meals

Posted on March 24, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide recipes Reviews

Seriously Good Freezer Meals is a super great book, if you work a lot. Because you can make the meals ahead of time, and freeze them for later.
