I think this is a wonderfully written article and it should be read by nearly everyone. I really like that you are factual and you back up what your saying with verifiable statistics. So, even if a person doesn't like what your saying, they can't argue with it. You make some very good, interesting points and I hope many who read it will be motivated to do some further investigating and make some changes in their over all health choices.

* I am returning your gift points. I think I said that on the other item as well, and now I'm not sure I remembered to add them. I'll add them now just to be sure. I'm enjoying reading your items and don't want to be rewarded. Reading your items is reward enough.

Haha, of course I found the one thing you wrote on cats. Indeed, they are mighty hunters, tho you would never know it from my pride I have. My husband and I have a soft spot for strays and currently we have seven cats, and six are...pure black. Don't even get me started with all the witchy ideas that brew in one's mind when realizing there are six black cats running around causing mayhem. We watch them go through their motions of stalking, tracking, pouncing for the attack and think "aw how cute, look, they are playing." What looks like playing, is in fact deadly warfare training. IF done in the manner intended, it is quite deadly.

Makes me connect this to our training in Spiritual Warfare matters. If we actively think of doing something...standing up to our real enemy and using the weapons God has given us, we can be just as deadly to our mortal enemy the Devil. We must train and exercise our faith and study to show ourselves approved so that in all comes as a natural instinct to us when we need it the most.

Review of Finding a Life  
Review by Tina Stone
Rated: 18+ | (5.0)
This article really captures my attention for a few reasons. One, you already know about my health and what I've been through. The doctors, were not really giving me much information on how to CURE the infections. Just how to manage the symptoms. At first, I'd make salt baths, salt is good for healing infections...so when my legs would open up and have running sores, I'd sit in salt water baths, to help them. It did help, but it really grossed me out sitting in that nasty water! Then I read about living water in the Bible and about the stirring of the water would bring healing. That's when I made a switch. I stopped soaking my legs in salt water. I made a spray bottle with strong sea water and would spray it all on my legs very well, then, I'd sit in the shower and let the water RUN over my legs. Ten or fifteen minutes each day, I held my legs under the running water after I sprayed them down. I also started using the sun. I would go out in the mid afternoons, when it was hot and sunny. I'd sit with my legs exposed to the sun and just let that warm head soak into my skin. Yeah, yeah, I know...I know...sun causes cancer. Well I think it also has healing properties. I only sat out there for 30 minutes. Not time enough to burn or anything. These simple changes made HUGE changes in the time it took for my wounds to heal and dry up.

The second thing that strikes me about this article, is your mention of being cut off from each other. When I read your article, it made me consider the time when Jesus socially distanced himself from everyone else. He went out into the desert for 40 days and nights and prayed and fasted. He talked only to God and to the Devil. In the Old Testament there was a long list of things that could make a person "unclean" and they would be quarantined and cut off from everyone else until they were deemed clean. God made that mandate. There is something about cutting ourselves off from the rest of society, that compels God into action. It is a strong teaching moment between Father and Child. God and us. I think this deserves a lot more studying on and I think there is something God is trying to get us to see in all this.

I am returning the gift points. I did way to much talking for this to be a "real" review.

Review of Shopping  
Review by Tina Stone
Rated: E | (3.5)
I could not agree with you more! Shopping can also become addictive and out of control easily, which would also lead to an unhealthy lifestyle. You make some really good points here in this essay. I would love to see you write more on this subject. Welcome to WDC by the way!

This essay makes very good points and you use very good persuasive information. You are right in all these aspects you point out. I would encourage you to edit a little more, and maybe consider adding a source or two to back up those wonderful points you make. I enjoyed reading this very much.

What a wonderful story! I loved your vivid details and you captured the precociousness of the girls perfectly. It was so easy to see the story play out in my mind. I could practically hear the waves of the water. This would be perfect to read to a child who gets lonely or one who has an imaginary friend and gets teased. I enjoyed reading this very much.

Review by Tina Stone
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
This has a very sad, empty feel to it. While on the surface, one might think wow, the trampoline is well-liked, what kid doesn't like jumping on one? But, if you look closer, you see it is only being used as a toy, not a companion or friend. Interesting comparison.

This makes me hungry for more. I never was the fantasy reading type, until I read Silverbolt. Now, I can't get enough! But, I tried reading another fantasy story to see if I have truly been converted. I was disappointed tho because halfway through, I was still not "into" the story and was fine just walking away from it. Didn't have your way with words. Nor was his world as interesting as yours.

Reading this broke my heart. You are so much more than you think you are. What you do here is precious and valuable and no one else can do it the way you do. Don't think with your head. Think with your heart. Do something with your membership that is for YOU. You give and give and give it here. Just this one time, make it about you. What does Jack dream about? What does Jack want?

Just something to think about.

Oooo the plot just got as thick as jam! And hotter than a firecracker on 4th of July. This is really exciting. I don't know how old you are, but I am old enough to remember when a series came on TV and you actually had to wait an entire week before you got the next episode. Reading your story is kinda like that now. I get to wait in great anticipation for the next chapter lol. Somehow, that makes it all the more exciting!

Something gets lost when you can now binge-watch a whole season or more of shows without having to wait. Ah, I'm showing my age lol

Isn't it amazing how the seemingly simple things are what sticks with us as we get older and start that tendency to meander down memory lane? Our Thanksgivings meant people were always going to be showing up at our place, Mom refused to travel during holidays. There was the time when all us kids were nine and under..it was raining and we were in south texas...so that particular Thanksgiving it was HOT outside and even hotter inside with all the cooking going on. We wanted to play outside and Mom said NO, don't get your clothes all dirty. Well, next thing ya know, Mom hears her house guest laughing like crazy. She walks in to see her children and the other children butt naked playing out in the rain! Splashing in the mud puddles! Our excuse? Mom, you didn't say we couldn't go out and play, you said, don't get your clothes dirty! There was the time, my mom had the kitchen window wide open to let the heat out of the kitchen. The window was right above the sink. She walks in and screams...there with his head stuck as far in as possible was my sister's horse, helping himself to the salads and pies Mom had left on the counter!

Yep, you sure can't beat those memories with family and holidays lol

This gave me goosebumps reading it. You hooked me quickly and kept me nibbling at the bait til the very end. It was dramatic and fast-paced with plenty of good descriptions. At some point, I believe we all get that moment when we have to choose if we take that offered second chance or not. Where we have to choose to either stand up and confront a fear or let it control us.

**This review was one of two that you won from the WDC Motor Speedway Raffle. Thank you for your participation!**

Oh my goodness, I laughed so hard! I have six cats and they love chasing a laser light I play with them with. I could so easily picture this scene and it was brilliant, funny and I'd never in a million years expect it! Your story just gets better and better!

That was really an exciting, action-packed scene. You made it come to life so easily, it leaped off the page and played out in my mind so clearly and colorfully. The more I read, the more I fall in love with all your characters...they are all so unique and you are a very skilled storyteller!

I had to laugh at the somewhat "Gone with the Wind" feel to the whole scene with Raven Hair insisting her place was at his side and then, sending a letter that implied so much lol. Silverbolt's modern teenage response was funny.

A very beautiful reminder to live to the fullest while you can and to remember it's not what you leave in this world, but what you build in the one to follow. I love the imagery you used and how you drew the picture in my mind with your well-chosen words.

This was a lot of fun, even tho it is May of 2020! I just find it hard to pass up anything Christmasy no matter what time of year it is. I got them all correct except I have NO Idea what a sleigh's landing gear is called. Thank you for a fun reminder that Christmas is never out of season!

Richard, I love this SO much! The whole reason I asked for bitem format submissions is due to what you have so wonderfully explained. It was to give readers and judges a good understanding as to what to expect when they clicked the link. It also presented the judges with something more to base their impressions/judgments. I WISH we'd had this at the very start!

I buy and use limes like crazy. I much prefer a lime than a lemon. Anytime a lemon is called for, I use a lime. It makes the BEST iced tea. I put half a cup of honey and juice of a lime in my jug of tea while it is still hot so it will dissolve. Lime ice cream is yummy as well. I'm glad you wrote about this little guy, he gets overlooked so often by his cousins the lemon and orange. Even grapefruit gets more attention than he does.
