My Review of Tyler's Coffee And A Giveaway

I have a review I want to share with all of you. I received a packet from Tyler's Coffee on Dec.30. I woke up early on Dec. 31 bright eyed and bushy tailed and ready for my morning cup of Joe which is from star bucks most of the time. But this day I decided to give that packet from Tyler's Coffee a try.

As I stood there at the Coffey maker waiting I truly love the smell of Coffey and I don’t know but I kind of expected to smell something less good that star bucks but I was pleasantly greeted with a rich warm aroma that filled the house and so I filled my cup and sat down with my paper and thoroughly enjoyed a rich tasty cup of Tyler's Coffee that was a little different than other coffees there was no after taste you know that bitter taste. Most times even with the best brands I get the stomach gurgles later in the day.

I want to tell you all if you love good Coffey and want to avoid that stomach rumble try Tyler’s Coffee.
Thanks for reading and talk with you all next Year!

So long Saint Nick!

So long Saint Nick!

Whoosh! And away he go’s and I say stay away for another year Jolly Red Man! lol! I know I know, I’m just tired of having been down graded in status around here every year that fat old fart comes around every December! All year long Grand Pops like me are top of the heap when it comes to playing with, taking care of and teaching our grand kids the rules of life.

Now that the New Year is close at hand we have climbed back on top! Yea! I say Yea!  
Now we are the ones who they come to when that toy Santa brought them falls apart.
We pretend like they are asking for a lot, lol but we all know that we love it when we have a chance to turn that sad cute little face back into a big smile as they run around the house telling all who will hear them look, look what Grand Pop did he fixed my toy!
( I AM  HERO )

I remember as a young father how every year on Christmas Eve we, most dads had the late night chore of sneaking out in the garage to try to put all the presents that would be from Santa together and somewhere in the deep dark places in my memories I remember a lot of cussing and thumb smashing that went on.

As an older wiser gentler grand father I have learned how to avoid all that cussing and thumb smashing, yes that’s right all you young guns out there will learn the secret to not being that mad elf in the garage is very simple! GET OLD!  lol yes all you have to do is wait! You’ll get there too just like all of us did.
Over and out my friends talk at ya all next time.

Trying New Products: Charm Factory Review And Giveaway

Trying New Products: Charm Factory Review And Giveaway

A life through your grand kids!

Morning folks hope all is well. I wanted to see if you other parents or grand parents ever feel the way I do when watching one of your kids doing something you used to do but can no longer get away with.

Case in point my grandsons the Three Amigo’s of Terror all of who we love very much are such lively guys with tons of energy so their folks sign them up for different activities according to their interests, like Nicholas his is a very good football player and his older brother Michael is very good at marshal arts. Then there is speedy Gon Lukas who is really fast after he does something he knows he shouldn’t he show’s his track skills!

As proud grand pops and grandma’s we try to stay up to date with their activities. We love watching them excel in them and I often find my self yelling (not at them!) but too them do this or do that. I ‘m not sure why I do that because on the field of battle they can’t hear you and if they could they wouldn’t.

When they do something that is fantastic we get all loud and cheer and puff out chest out saying that’s my kid or grand kid and in a lot of cases deep inside our self we think that kid is just like me! Lol when the truth is most of the time they are way better then we were we just always remember our self’s as super athletes! I think we seem to think that oh well they were not there so I’ll just build it up better than I really was! YOU KNOW THIS IS TRUE!
 It’s true and I find it sad that we can’t just remember our own memories and be happy with that! But we all do live through our children. I guess it’s is just a human thing!

Well my friends hope you all have a very happy new year! Stay safe and don’t go out and shoot guns!!!
Oh one more thing in the New Year to help you get started making extra money I can recommend two opportunities below.

 For long term steady grow ! 

You have been looking for it now it's here its Fantastic

So it’s a wonderful life after all !

Good day everyone. How was you holiday?
Mine started out terrible as I was so sick I didn’t get up until 10 am and the kids had already opened there gifts. By the time I was able to talk the rest of the family were starting to arrive and I was feeling better. So once the kids uncle Kenny got here we all went outside to play. It was a beautiful day very sunny and warm it felt good to be out there.

You know it is funny how kids ask for all the big fancy presents and they go on an on for weeks about how much they just have to have this or that. Then after they open all the gifts and while you sit there waiting to see how happy they are with that special gift.
They sit there and after a while that great had to have gift sits in the corner as they become fascinated with the simplest of toy’s that the baby of the family got! Lol!

It just go’s to show how the simplest thing sometime catches us buy surprise and we realize it really wouldn’t have made a big a difference if they didn’t get that expensive gift after all. And that all the kids and family really want was to be with kin on that special day!

So it’s a wonderful life after all !
Till next time wishing everyone a Happy New Year

My review of Iris and the Dragonflies by Rosemary Danielis

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using <a rel="nofollow" href=""></a>. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
First let say this up front, I am not a big fan of reading never have been that is why I did so poorly in school. I have in my years are getting well past half way to the promise land (I hope!). That reading is the most important tool we can give our youth. I have to say this book from Rosemary Danielis caught me by surprise and I was instantly grabbed by the collar and pull deep into this wonderful fairy tail. I love the setting in the old Irish lands.

I have always pulled for the good side of human nature and this brightly lit tail with dragon’s teeth. I love Iris as is much like most preteens kind of in a hum drum part of life.

When she sees’s the dragon fly and find’s that she can actually speak with it that is so powerful in the minds eye to me in the world of fantasy. To me traveling to the old county fit’s in with this new found power she finds through her grand mother and when she finds that small box containing the dragons tooth well I could actually see that happening to me. Lol

To me this could not have happened in the new country as the US. As there just is not that lore of the old world people who some how process those mystical ties to the land and Mother Nature. Her Grand mother does what grandmas are supposed to and helps her see the way’s of old.

The story continues as they come back to Canada, Iris learns more about her powers that
She has friends that will help her  as she knows that the evil is after her and everyone.

I find this book fascinated me in a way others have not this author is brilliant in my opinion. Like I said at the beginning of this review I’m not a fan of reading until now! I will now seek this authors Rosemary Danielis writings out and pass them on to my family and grand kids. PS my two grand daughters loved reading this so much!

 I highly recommend this authors book Iris and the Dragonflies

Good morning yawl! These old bones!

Good morning yawl! Boy I have to say this day it was tough getting these old bones out of the sack. Seems like in this cold weather everything just wants to stay in a nice warm bed! Old Rudy dog feels the same. The grad kids and I have a special bond with Ruby she is such a lover of the kids and they love her in return. I never leave them alone with Rudy as she is really quite big and is so happy to see them she can by accident hurt them in her excitement. She is one of those breeds that people shutter at and I do understand that as lol a weenie dog can make me climb a tree!

Ruby is the second Rottweiler we have the pleasure of having as a loyal part of our family. They have both been named Ruby and we raised them both the same way with kindness and lots of love with all of us doing a lot of hugging and holding as they grew up.  My theory is that if you never show aggression to them as they grow they really never discover what that is. Now we all know that you have to make sure they know that you’re the leader and show them that they are loved and make sure you show them they belong with you!

I’ll share a little story with you that prove to me I’m right! One night when Ruby was still very young she was sleeping down in the living room when one of my grand daughters( 2 years old) woke up in a daze and walked down stairs in the dark and when she realized what she had done she got really scared and started crying.
None of us knew she was down there, you got it! Except dear sweet Ruby dog.
My son and his wife and my other grand daughter and the rest of us where all sleeping up stairs.

 Our bedroom doors where open so we were really surprised when Ruby went not into my room as one would think as she hadn’t been around my son very much. And he was not a big fan of dogs.
She went right to his room and pushed his arm until he woke up! He yelled at her to get out but she would take no for and answer and just kept pushing until he got mad and got up to put her out of the house and as soon as he got down stairs he saw Helayna all curled up on the floor crying! Well you can imagine from that moment on Ruby became the hero of the hall Family and we rest easy every night knowing our protector is on duty!

The Walton's Mountain Way!

Hello folks are ya all? Well this is the time of year I enjoy the most as I’m sure you all do too. This year I was a bit late on putting away extra for gifts for the grandkids. In my family now days we are all struggling with money like the rest of the country so we decided it was time to put the brakes on frivolous gift’s and get back to the( for lack of better words ) the Walton’s mountain outlook and that is family is the most precious gift we can give to each other. And so as we tighten our belts we are shopping mainly for the kids and then just a gift or two and nothing grander than 50 bucks.

But I also decided to start a program I found online through a friend and have been so happy with the results that have been happening. Buy Thanksgiving of next year I will have a substantial amount of money on a daily basis. I have tried many programs that promise fantastic returns in short terms. But they have never worked out. That is why I like ZeeksRewards so much they make no grand promises only tell if you place on ad a day everyday in months you will have a good daily payout. That simple, that true.

Well my friends I wish you all a Very Happy Holiday Season and a wonderful New Year!
Grand Pop Hall God Bless you all!

Had fun today !

LOL! I was telling the girls this morning that they had to have milk because there was no juice left. My god you would have thought I spit in their eye! They moaned and groaned like the world was coming to and end.

So I started a game with them we used to play while watching the old time show called Engineer Bill or Sheriff John my memory fails me but it was one of them, they had like a stop light and when it turned green you had to drink your milk, red and you had to put on the brakes and stop! Lol sometimes as I remember it got pretty messy but it did serve its purpose we did have fun and drank our milk!

Woo! got that taken care of for today! What will tomorrow bring ???

Grand pops are alive and well!

Grand pops are alive and well! We have a new found purpose.
We have come to the rescue of our children’s children!
We now are more and more the daytime care takers of our beautiful grandkids and we provide a very useful service to our families that would otherwise cost them quite a pretty penny.
As I sit at the bench outside the classroom of my grand daughter waiting to see her cute face and that sweet smile I look around what I see amazes me! We all of us sitting there like faithful pups most of us are grand pop’s or grandma’s waiting with the patience like we never had as parents. Our little one’s come out with big smiles we stand up with beaming pride as we collect our whole world!
