who is ready for giveaway day vier?

Do your children suffer from the epidemic known to mothers and fathers alike as "whining"?? Do they complain about bed times? Getting up in the morning? Taking a bath? Are there days where their whining sends you running into the streets on the brink of insanity? Then do I have the book for you!!

January Jones, also know as the Whine Tester, had made it her mission to rid the world of whining, one book at a time. In her book, Thou Shalt Not Whine: The Eleventh Commandment: What We Whine About, Why We Do It and How to Stop, Jones uses humor to discuss the top ten things people and children whine about every day. She then goes one step further and offers over 100 different ways to deal with it! Jones addresses it all - from bad hair days to feeling fat - with a few slow drivers that won't merge in between.

I loved that I could relate to something in every chapter of the book. When Jones described the horror of shopping for a bathing suit as "worse then taking your mother-in-law to lunch" - she had me hooked! Don't even get me started on the chapter about Grandparents 'Top 10' whines about their children's parenting. I wanted to photo copy every page and mail it to MY parents!! (between snarkily snorting of course)

So now I am going to offer you a chance at happiness. A chance at a whine free life. In the spirit of keeping it simple all you have to do is leave a comment with your email and you will automatically be entered. I will announce the winner next Thursday! *FYI* - since the publisher will be mailing the book directly I can only extend this offer to those living in the US - sorry!

tuesday tunage - another giveaway!

In honor of Giveaway Palooza, I have another music giveaway for you!! But first things first - my winner from last Tuesday. I used the all and mighty Random.Org to pick a lovely winner. Drum roll please..... and the winner is - silverhartgirl!! Congrats to you!

This week I have three CDs from the popular Celtic harpist Anne Roos. She combines the beauty of the harp with a hardcover CD book outlining the background of the music on each CD. This music is truly amazing! I have downloaded many of her songs to my iPod and love listening to it. It hits this lassie's Irish heart strings! Here is a quick summary of the three CDs I have.

Anne arranged and recorded a special Celtic wedding music CD called “Haste to the Wedding,” in direct response to the many requests she received from brides and grooms. “Haste to the Wedding” is popular with couples looking for romantic music to accompany their wedding festivities. It includes traditional Celtic music played on solo harp accompanied by an ensemble of traditional instruments. This CD is enclosed in a 48-page hardcover book containing vintage color images, Celtic toasts, blessings, legends, wedding traditions, and recipes.

Mermaids and Mariners” features traditional and original music of the sea, arranged by Anne for both solo Celtic Harp and harp within a small ensemble. The beautiful sea ballads and shanties are packaged inside a 24-page hardcover book containing a bounty of illustrations and tales about life at sea and the lost loves of those who sail on its waves and swim at its depths. Selections from this recording have been featured on United Airlines Inflight Music Service.

One of her earliest projects, “Through the Mist,” features original New Age flute and harp duets, with flutist David Blonski. This recording is enhanced with soothing environmental  sounds woven into the selections. This recording remains a favorite among massage therapists and yoga enthusiasts.

Once again I am going to make it easy for you to win one of these fabulous and truly amazing CDs. Just head over HERE, listen to some of the samples, pick your favorite and leave you choice in the comments with your email address. I will pick a winner next Tuesday and soon you too can enjoy some of my beautiful heritage.
