Old memories

Watching a new anime with Logan brought up some odd nostalgia.

Taking Fire – A working title and updated

They fought together, guns blazing side by side as they tried to take back the front lines the last wave had lost. The shrill sounds of ricochets zing past the helmet as the two tried to get behind some fresh cover, hoping the tango that had them down his sights missed the movement. A couple of feet to the left a shell rocked beside them, spraying dirt and debris in their faces. Gasping as their ears rang the little one sprayed a line of covering fire as they tried advancing once more, taking a couple of feet every time they moved. They couldn’t stop, couldn’t pause for anything at this point. The war raged all around them and it seemed hopeless; the cries of the dying echoed across the battlefield and they struggled to keep moving. A shell rocked down in between them and they were blasted apart, each flying in another direction. Continue reading

Product Review – White-O-Occoli

When I found out about White-o-Coccoli *because being unique is awesome!* I immediately fell in a deep love with the ladies designs and products.
I purchased a few of her first line, customized spoons made from bamboo, a highly green, anti microbial, adorable! Renewable resource.
My daughters name is not the most common name going, and we knew picking that name the chances of us ever finding an item with her name on it at a store was slim to none. So being able to customize what I wanted on each spoon was a huge plus! Normally it’s $5-10 to get an item customized when you purchase it, but with White-O-Coccoli the normal un customized spoon is only a dollar less then the fully customized version!

This lady hand burns into each spoon a name, message or whatever your little heart desires. The taller spoons (the originals) are perfect for some many things but one of the things I love is the fact that they float. I’m a tea drinker, also a stirrer, and most of my mugs are novelty mugs that are far too tall for normal spoons, metal spoons. With my OCD I have to wash my hands after each time I grab the spoon if my hand touches the liquid, but like I said her spoons float! It’s always at the top ready to grab!

They are also anti microbial so they resist most bacteria if they say, get left in a bowl of cereal, your safe! Or if they are left in a dirty sink…

I currently own over ten of her “classic” spoons and have bought one for each member of my family for a Christmas present in 2011, over 50 spoons. The best part is you can afford to do just that!

We also have about ten of the new style mini spoons, perfect for my dayhome kids, each name (and they are some odd ones!) is put onto the spoon so everyone always knows who’s is who’s!

I am very excited to get my hands on some of her new product line released very recently, as always her focus is on being green and good for our kids.

For the price and quality of the products I cannot think of any other company to recommend more highly then White-O-Occoli for all your tableware needs. The owner regularly goes over board helping out those around her by donating and raising funds for those in need in her local area and abroad, this is one small business that will continue to grow and help nurture the community that allows her to flourish.

I will be following up with a review on her newest product line in the New Year! I have not included many photo’s of the spoons in my collection as they all have either my kids or the day home kids names on them and wish to respect both my husbands and kids privacy!
