Supernatural The Anime Series on DVD/Blu-Ray Now!

Image
Did you watch the Supernatural and can't wait to see it again? Well~Today is the day as WB has released the anime series today!! Supernatural noted for its creative storytelling of the occult during its first six seasons on The CW Network, has also achieved great popularity across the planet – particularly in Japan. Inspired by its sensational following overseas, Warner Home Video Japan and renowned animation studio Madhouse combined forces to envision Supernatural as an anime series – first released in Japan and now translated for American audiences. The creators of Supernatural were able to construct an animated world in which there were no boundaries. This new look into Supernatural brings new perspective to the show. From adding color, intensity and action to scenes, to vivid images of horrifying demons, the medium does not disappoint.

Christmas in July with Storkie.com

Image
Did you know that in only 5 months it will be Christmas?!? 
I have already started to get things for the grandchildren as I have so many to buy for that I try to shop all year. We also like to decorate the whole house as Christmas is my favorite time of the year. One thing that we like to do is hang all the Christmas Cards up that we get. We get so many of them that it seems a shame to just put them in the drawer. We usually just make a circle around one of the doorways as that way everyone that comes over can also enjoy them. I like to start shopping early for our Christmas cards as that is just one more thing that I can cross off my list. One of the places that I have found that has everything that we need is Storkie.com  As they have everything you need for all your holidays! At the end of the season we like to find things to do with all the unique Christmas cards. A great way to recycle the cards from year to year~

Plonk Wine Merchants Review!

Supernatural: The Anime Series on DVD/Blu-Ray!

After being separated for years, the Winchester brothers come together and surmount enormous obstacles (including some pretty gnarly demons) in search of their father. Throughout the show, family and brotherhood specifically is a very important theme. In fact, it is often the key element that saves each brother’s life when things get the most dangerous.

I only have one sister but we were very close growing up.As my parents bought a bar and we worked there with them and also did everything together with our kids for almost 15 years. Even though we now live far apart~I still would do anything in the world for her. As we lost both of our parents so it is just her and I am we need to take care of each other! As I love her with all my heart and more...
How about you?  Do you have a brother or sister that you would stand alongside and fight demons? How has family been there for you in moments of crisis? I'd love to hear a little of your story too!

Almost Time For School Again

Image
Even though it is over 100 degrees here today~it's not too early to start thinking about the kids going back to school. I have listed some ways to make it less stressful~
Be Prepared~call the school and see if their list is out yet for the supplies that are needed. As many have them out already and you can find some great deals now. I was at the dollar store the other day and they had notepads marked down already. I also found many supplies that were on clearance such as rulers and erasers.
Shop the sales are I have seen many kids things on sale at all the stores in the mall. As that sundress or shorts can still be worn for the first month of school. 
Master Lock® has hired a new specialist on student life to help students safely and securely navigate this school year in style.
