Much to my pleasant surprise, after twenty years Rod Stewart is still kicking it! Since receiving my preview copy from the One2One Network, I've been playing the album over and over. I lost count of my favorites and know without a doubt many of the songs will make #1. And to think that Rod Stewart wrote and produced 11 of the 12 tracks. Don't want to give my age away but I was a huge fan in the seventies and I say this CD is the best yet we have heard from Stewart. Like wine his talent as gracefully aged with Time and I can't wait to hear what more he has to offer. It's very rare that a superstar of one generation can stay away so long and offer music that would fit in with today's generation. He is just that kind of stellar performer. Mark my words that "Can't Stop Me Now" and "It's Over" will be atop the music charts once this awesome cd releases. You will be able to purchase tomorrow. Rod Stewart will be appearing on Jimmy Kimmel tonight; See him on "The Voice" on May 8th and "Live With Kelly & Michael" on May 11th. This album is so delicious it makes me wonder what took him so long?

As a former housebound agoraphobic due to chronic anxiety attacks and concurrent depression it was difficult for me to read Rebekah Lyons Freefall to Fly A Breathtaking Journey. Her book covers her struggles with anxiety and depression but she does not seek professional help and discourages anyone who uses antidepressants. Instead of being uplifting I felt this book proposed it was wrong to get the appropriate treatment which is available. Unfortunately there is a lot about mental illness she does not know and should not be making unfounded suggestions. Its sad because this just contributes to the ignorance that is already associated with depression. I am a Christian who believes that God blesses doctors with the knowledge they have to treat them, Depression is a chemical imbalance in the brain, therefore medication is given to stabilize it's victims just as a person who is diabetes needs insulin. Once I got the appropriate treatment which was a combination of therapy, medication and prayers I overcame the agoraphobia. Mine is such a success story that it ended up in The Detroit News. To discourage anyone who is suffering from depression from seeking treatment is just wrong.
This is one of the few books I highly do not recommend.

With over two million books sold, Shaunti Feldhahn sheds light on what men really need in her best seller, For Women Only. Contrary to what we may have heard, sex fills a powerful emotional need in a man even more so than the physical need. ' '' Men take their role as a provider very seriously, the author states it is the core of a man's identity. In fact, 71% of men say their ability to provide is always or often on their minds.'" We all know that most men have a more difficult time expressing inner feelings than women. This stellar book gives all women insight on what really matters to a man. Above all, respect is at the top of his wish list. This book is excellent and a real eye-opener to what women may think their man expects of them an what he truly desires. There is a powerful chapter on what he most wishes he could say to you. I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to read this book for Blogging for Books Waterbrook Multnomah for sharing my thoughts. The author also has written For Men Only in this companion series. With Mother's Day right around the corner, this would make for an awesome gift which enriches relationships. A Definite Must Read.

Men really don't want a lot, they just want to know that you are thinking about them. Michael Angelo made this extremely easy for me last night. My husband got the munchies for a hot snack while watching The Detroit Tigers Ball Game on tv. I decided to surprise him with the Michael Angelo's Sausage & Mushroom Flatbread I had bought at Walmart. You get two flatbreads with Carmalized Onions, Mozzarella Cheese & Arrabbiata Sauce. Now that's Italian and for those who are watching their waistline they are only 270 calories per serving. It only took this cook 15 minutes to prepare these tasty treat baking in the oven. Now the best part, my husband was so impressed that he showed me special attention for the rest of the night. So when your loved ones tire of potato chips and nuts give them Michael Angelo's...they will love you for it~
