More Ways to Waste Energy

Welcome back to a new #WineWednesday drinking gadget feature. This week I’m hopping mad and not because this week’s gadget keeps your drink warm. I’m here to say we need to stop creating gadgets like the USB Beverage Cup Cooler and Warmer in the video below. Like we don’t already use way more energy than we need. Drink your beverage while it’s hot or cold, or get your ass up to reheat it or add a few ice cubes. Enough said.

Movie Review: Hell and Back

This week I’m reviewing Hell and Back, an animated horror comedy. Here’s what it’s about:

“Two best friends set out to rescue their pal after he’s accidentally dragged to hell.”

This is a fun movie. I did enjoy it, although I can’t give it a spectacular review. Hell and Back was completely and totally predictable. The comedy was the same old same old, as if the writers stole a bunch of jokes an threw them in. At times I was bored and ready for the story to just move on because there wasn’t anything original going on.

I did liked most of the characters. Didn’t like the stupid demon theme though. Demons must be evil and funny to keep my interest. I have mixed feelings about Satan personified in two forms, although I think it was more the way he was portrayed in each form that was the issue.

I’m a huge fan of stop action animation and it was well done in this movie. In fact, it carried most of the movie and is what makes some of the more annoying things about the story line tolerable.

Anyway, I do suggest you watch it with lowered expectations and you’ll find it as fun as I did.

My Rating: 3 out of 5

Fall for Freedom Part 2: Not So Safe

Enjoy this new Fall for Freedom part. It’s a short prequel to The Courier series about Pete Sinclair, Barry’s mentor in books 2 and 3.

In part 2, Pete meets Trisha, everyone’s favorite angel’s apprentice who is a main character in all the books.

Go to part 2 or start reading from the beginning below.

Wine Wipes

Happy #WineWednesday! Although I won’t be partaking today. I’m going in for part 2 of a root canal tomorrow and really don’t want to face the dentist with a wine headache. It’s bad enough going to the dentist (my greatest fear), so I’ll be saving the wine guzzling for after the torture session.

I’m back after a few years away from weekly wine blog posts. I’ve decided to bring back this fun event, but instead of reviewing wine, I’m highlighting wine and other liquor drinking gadgets.

Now here we go…

Can you believe this? Wine Wipes? These puppies remove that pesky red wine stain from your teeth. Their website is at winewipes.com if you’d like to buy.

Once upon a time, I knew someone who could use these wipes. Her teeth turned deep purple when she drank red wine. She had suffered from bulimia in her younger years and all the enamel on her teeth had been eaten away. So, if I ever see someone whip out Wine Wipes, guess where my mind is going?

Would I buy this product? No. First of all, I don’t even know if my teeth stain when I drink red wine, although I will probably check the next time I polish off a bottle. Well, if I remember. The main reason I’ll skip Wine Wipes is my ‘I don’t care’ attitude. That and once I would reach the point my teeth stain, I’m too tipsy to even think about whipping out some wipes to clean my teeth. And if I’m really drunk, I’ll likely pass out in bed without brushing my teeth. Anyway, my teeth are my last thought when I pop the cork. I guess this explains why I now need lots of root canals.
