My Weekly Quarantine TV Hit #1

Image
During this time of quarantine I know I will be watching tons of movies and tv shows. I thought why not tell you what I have watched and look forward to watching.    Here are some of my favorites so far: 1. Outlander - STARZ "Outlander" is a historical drama based on the novel series by Diana Gabaldon. It stars Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall, a married former World War II nurse who in 1946 finds herself transported back to Scotland in 1743. There she encounters the dashing Highland warrior Jamie Fraser played by Sam Heughan, and becomes embroiled in the Jacobite risings. The first season is based on the first novel.  Season 1:  In 1946, former World War II nurse Claire Randall and her husband Frank are visiting  Inverness , Scotland, when she is carried from the standing stones at Craigh na Dun back in time to 1743. She falls in with a group of rebel  Scottish Highlanders  from  Clan  MacKenzie, who are being pursued by English  redcoats  led by Captai

Draw Me to Your Side Book 4 by Marguerite Martin Gray Book Review and Giveaway

Image
ABOUT THE BOOK: "Drew Me to Your Side” is book #4 in Marguerite Martin Gray’s Revolutionary Faith Series. This can be a stand-alone book, but I recommend reading the first three books. The book takes place in Charles Town, South Carolina in 1776 during the Revolutionary War. The colonies and Britain are still at war in 1776. The main character who is focused in the book is Louis and Elizabeth Lestarjette’s family. We see how they deal with the turbulent times all while starting a family. Author Gray created well-rounded characters who are relatable. I could tell she really did her research because I felt like I was reading non-fiction of the lives of the Lestarjette’s family but it isn’t.  I loved reading parts of historical documents about the start of our country. The dialogue between the characters sounded authentic. You can see how much Louis and Elizabeth support each other and love each other. There is a family element to the story. There wasn’t much war action. It amaz

Image
ABOUT THE BOOK Young CIA officer Talia Inger has reconciled with the man who assassinated her father, but that doesn't mean she wants him hovering over her every move and unearthing the painful past she's trying to put behind her. Still, she'll need him--and the help of his star grifter, Valkyrie--if she hopes to infiltrate the Jungle, the first ever crowdsourced crime syndicate, to rescue a group of kidnapped refugee children. But as Talia and her elite team of thieves con their way into the heart of the Jungle, inching ever closer to syndicate boss the White Lion, she'll run right up against the ragged edge of her family's dark past. In this game of cat and mouse, it's win . . . or die. And in times like that, it's always good to have someone watching your back.

COVID-19 Is Showing Cruel People

No one can get away from the news and devastation the Coronavirus COVID-19 is causing. This flu is scary especially for people with autoimmune conditions, such as myself. I am a little worried about it, but I am always worried about the regular flu, Norovirus, and colds too.  Ever since I was 9 years old I know to watch what I am touching and to wash hands   all the times.  Our governer stated even though this is an epidemic we are seeing kind people stepping out to help each other. I haven't seen that in my area. I see people buying 150 or more rolls of toilet paper, 25 or more Lysol sprays, 25 or more hand soaps and the list goes on. There are rows and rows of food out of stock. Why? This isn't like its a hurricane or fire or some sort of natural disaster. Its the flu. You can hire someone to the store to pick up food for you if you are sick or just can't get out.   I went to Meijers two days ago and almost got killed by a woman and a man. I asked the stocker if the
