My Thoughts
 I feel everyone needs one of these tools in their vehicles for safety reasons.
  •  The Autobar can cut through a seatbelt if you are stuck and the seat belt won't release. It has been known to happen after an accident that the catch won't release. I can still remember a woman wrecking near my step-father's job site and the men desperately trying to release her from the seatbelt. Obviously, I have been unable to test this portion and hope I never have to.
  • The Autobar also will break out a window. I know my cousin has a personal fear of this so she would love to own one of these. The metal tip is very solid and I can see how it would work to break a window. Obviously, I have been unable to test this portion and hope I never have to.
  • I have health issues and sometimes the arthritis makes it so hard to get in and out of vehicles. My van is a little taller than me so I usually have to boost myself in using the arm of the passenger seat but I get annoyed because either my daughter has her arm on it or someone has put it up and I have no hand hold. The Autobar solves that issue. Just pop it into the side pocket of my door so when I get ready to get into the van, I just hook it to the door.

    About the authors:
    Shirlee McCoy
    Shirlee McCoy has always loved making up stories. As a child she daydreamed elaborate tales in which she was the heroine — gutsy, strong and invincible. Though she soon grew out of her superhero fantasies, her love for storytelling never diminished. Shirlee knew early that she wanted to write inspirational fiction and began writing her first novel when she was a teenager. Still, it wasn't until her third son was born that she truly began pursuing her dream of being published. Three years later she sold her first book. Now a busy mother of four, Shirlee is a homeschool mom by day and an inspirational author by night. She and her husband and children live in Maryland and share their home with a dog and a guinea pig.

    Margaret Daley
    Margaret has been writing for over 35 years. She started writing in the late 1970s because she wanted to see if she could put a whole story down on paper. That book is still in the drawer and will never see the light of day. But she was able to finish a book, which was her goal. She loved teaching and working with students with special needs, and recently retired from teaching to write full-time. When she isn't working, she loves to read, travel, and go to lunch and a movie with a friend. She and her husband, Mike, to whom she has been married for over 40 years live in Tulsa. Besides teaching and writing, she is also a mother of one. Her son, Shaun, is married with four daughters.

    Sharon Dunn
    Sharon Dunn first fell in love with mystery and suspense about the time she read Nancy Drew mysteries in the fifth grade. Her first book in the Ruby Taylor mysteries Romance Rustlers and Thunderbird Thieves was a finalist for the Romantic Times Inspirational Book of the Year. The second book in that series Sassy Cinderella and the Valiant Vigilante was voted Book of the Year by American Christian Fiction Writers. Her hobbies include reading, working out, hiking, trying to find things around the house and making pets out of the dust bunnies under the furniture. Before she started writing, she used to sew. Now she just collects fabric and patterns and fantasizes about projects. After nearly twenty seven years of marriage, Sharon lost her beloved husband in 2014. She lives with her three nearly grown children, two cats and a nervous border collie named Bart

    My Thoughts
    I really enjoyed this set. I liked that this were "clean" reads in that there wasn't any foul language or sex scenes. Just the telling of the story, the solving of the mystery with a romance thrown in the mix.  I liked the interaction between the characters and the dogs. Each of the dogs in the books have their own specialities.  My cousin is a deputy and he has a K9 partner so these books were a good insight into understanding more of what he does. Each of the books can be stand alone in that each of the crimes are specific to the book and solved in that book and each romance is completed in that book. But there is a crime web spun throughout all the books so I think you would enjoy it more if you read the set. I really enjoyed books 1 and 2 more than 3. The romance in 3 felt more forced and after dropping a major bomb the male protagonist, never explains more about it. I am sure I have figured out who "The Boss" is so will have to finish this series to see if I am right.

    And for the giveaway, we have the latest book by Shirlee McCoy (author of Book1 in the series), “Protection Detail.” It releases March 3rd! This is a physical copy,

    My Thoughts
    I have never owned a pulse oximeter although they have used them on me at the doctor all the time. I have asthma and COPD plus anemic so my oxygen levels are always lower than other people. But now with the pulse oximeter, I can tell when my oxygen is low and I need a breathing treatment or if its so that I need to go to the doctor. The meter was so simple and easy to use. Just sit down. Take 2 deep breaths and then turn the meter on and stick your finger it. Its so fast that in 8 seconds it displays your oxygen and pulse rate. There is an adorable little case to hold the meter and a cord that you can either wrap around your wrist or let it hang from your neck.I think everyone should have one of these in the home, whether in your first aid kit or to use while exercising to see if you have reached your target pulse rate.

    Our Disneyside Party

    I received one or more of the products mentioned below for free from Mom Select and #DisneySide. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. Thanks to Mom Select, BSM Media and Disney Parks! And also to the sponsors that included items in my awesome kit~ All, Wisk, Snuggle, HP, Crayola, Chef Duff, Twinings, Soy Vay! and Wilton!  Just a big shout out to all the wonderful sponsors for helping my grandson have a wonderful party.

    Got the idea for the krispy treat Mickey Cake from Kristen at Ready, Set, Parenthood

    We have been trying to have my grandson's 6th birthday party for over 2 weeks now but the snow just kept coming. The roads have been impassable and no one could even come to the party. So today the temps got up to 35 degrees and the roads were clear, we decided to throw an impromptu party. It wasn't as well put together as we had hoped since start to finish it was a total of 5 hours and that includes making the Mickey treat cake. But we are expecting more snow tonight and then I have to work 10 hour days over the next 3 days so today was our last chance to get the party completed. We ended up with 6 children and 6 adults so not bad for such a quick party. This was my first time hosting a #DisneySide party but hopefully it won't be my last and each one will be better than the last.

    These are the Mickey ear headbands we made for the party. I got the idea from Spark Your Motivation

    Here is a bit of the table being setup and decorated

    This is my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter wearing her Mickey Ears

    This is my oldest granddaughter with her Minnie ears.

    This is our birthday boy, Frankie.

    This is our 15 month old and she wanted no part in Mickey ears or the background photo.

    Best coloring page of the day.

    My Thoughts
     This review is near and dear to my heart. I am sure I will cry while trying to type it :(. 3 years ago my baby brother (21 years old) was walking home at night and was struck and killed by a car. My world was shattered and my heart broken forever. Since that time, I have become more aware of just how often people are struck by cars often fatally. I personally have trouble with night vision and for this reason I don't drive at night if possible but there are times that I have to. I see people walking and they are in dark clothes and honestly just too hard to see until you are upon them. As a person walking, I am sure they never realize that they aren't visible to the drivers. I wish everyone would wear one of these reflective vests so they could be seen. I have actually given reflective material to people to wear at night for that reason. Don't be a statistic when something as simple as this running vest can save your life. Stand out at night.

    In 2012, 4,743 pedestrians and 726 bicyclists were killed in crashes with motor vehicles (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Traffic Safety Facts). Nearly one-third (32 percent) of all pedestrian fatalities occurred between 8:00 p.m. and 11:59 p.m.

    Watch how easy it is to put the vest on. Sorry its sideways but I couldn't' figure out how to turn it :)
