The Butterfly RevolutionThe Butterfly Revolution by William Butler

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


The first few chapters really hooked me in. Then the book started to lose its pull. I liked the book but only wish it would have kept my interest like the beginning did.
The book reminds me of animal farm.
I read animal farm in school and then again when I was older. I understood the book much better with age. I think if I would have read The Butterfly revolution in school I would have been able to relate to it better than animal farm and understood the political meaning behind the story line.

The Franchise Affair (Inspector Alan Grant, #3)The Franchise Affair by Josephine Tey

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Slow but enjoyable reading mystery. The book is more about the people involved in the mystery rather than the mystery itself. The book is old so the dated views of the time are often expressed my the characters.

SurfacingSurfacing by Margaret Atwood

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I enjoyed the book. Hard to classify this one the cover say even better than The Bell Jar . I do not think so not even close, but maybe the same sort of style.

My review of HX vacuum storage bags

Nice variety of different size bags. I was able to fit a large  amount of stuff in the bags.
I had some trouble with the seals , I filled several bags and checked them a few hours later and air had gotten it to them. So I did them over and double checked the seal and it was not completely close.
So lesson learned double check the seals before storing. Another thing I realized after doing the bags is that the more even and spread out the items the better the air is sucked out and the bag is more compressed.
The last picture  a bunch of bags and a box shows how many bags and boxes are empty now after using the bags.

I received this product with a discount for my honest review.

A Declaration of Independents: How We Can Break the Two-Party Stranglehold and Restore the American DreamA Declaration of Independents: How We Can Break the Two-Party Stranglehold and Restore the American Dream by Greg Orman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Greg does a great job explaining all the ways the two party system is corrupt and does not represent the average citizen.
Over the years I have often heard the term gerrymandering but never really completely understood it.
I thought the chapter pertaining to gerrymandering explained it well and it should really p.o. any one who reads it.
I thought some of the charts in the book were hard to read and should have been larger and bolder colors.
I have always been a independent and this primary election I had to register in the democratic party in order to vote in my state primary. Just one example of two party stranglehold.
Great book for understanding politics today
I won a copy of this book on goodreads

Yimby tumbling composter review

I have been wanting a composter for several years now. Just have never found one in my price range.
Last year I bought my daughter a yimby for her birthday.
So after she had it for a while and liked it I bought myself one.
My husband put it together for me, he complain about  all the screws. He said over the years he has learned the cheaper something is the more work it is to assemble it.
I like the 2 chamber compartment on the composter and the size is nice. I have had the composter for about 3 weeks now and my daughter has had hers for over a year and so far so good.

Essential Oils Every Day: Nature's Most Powerful Plant Medicines for Health, Healing & HappinessEssential Oils Every Day: Nature's Most Powerful Plant Medicines for Health, Healing & Happiness by Hope Gillerman

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


The book is a beginners guide to using essential oils. Perfect book for anyone with little or no knowledge of what essential oils are and how and why to use them. If you are already a users of essential oils you would probably not gain any new knowledge from the book.
