Win Fandango tix! Unbroken: Path to Redemption IN THEATERS OCTOBER 5,2018 #unbrokenfilm #FlyBy


It can be a challenge to find great uplifting movies these days. Get ready for a good one coming up this spring though...no worries. We all know the challenges of work and family and  "Unbroken: Path to Redemption" hits the target literally. You can find this wonderful movie I was fortunate enough to preview at over coming up on October 5. It is an inspiration that has struggled at any point in their life.  It shares Louis Zamperini's struggles with pain and suffering in a time when no one recognized the disorder PTSD. It didn't even exist back then.

"Unbroken: Path to Redemption" will debut in movie theaters nationwide October 5, 2018. When the war ended, his battle began. Based on Laura Hillenbrand's bestselling book, UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION begins where Unbroken ends, sharing the next amazing chapter of Olympian and World War II hero Louis Zamperini's powerful true story of forgiveness, redemption, and amazing grace.



This new sequel stars Samuel Hunt as Zamperini, with Merritt Patterson as his wife, Cynthia Applewhite-Zamperini. “Path to Redemption” has Will Graham who plays Billy Graham who will become to be a major character in the film. The film follows Zamperini’s acute struggle to adjust back to a normal life after his horrific war-time experiences. He tries to reestablish himself as an entrepreneur, a world class runner even get rich quick schemes which all end in failure and send him down a dark path. He is near divorce when his wife Cynthia attends a 1949 Billy Graham Crusade. She prays for his inner peace and forgiveness that he so desperately needs. If you saw the first film, you need to see this to understand how Louis found the peace and redemption he so desperately needed.



I was fortunate enough to preview this movie recently and it was really riveting. I had seen the original movie and this really made his whole story come together. This is a must see for anyone that has ever struggled in their life (all of us!) and to be able to see someone come out on top after his experiences is wonderful. Tickets will be available for "Unbroken: Path to Redemption" soon and can be purchased online or at participating theater box offices.  You can check out "Unbroken: Path to Redemption" right now online and get a little peek right now.

Winc Wine brings the best wines right to your door with a special discount now just for my readers @usfg @winc #cheersdelivered




I consider myself a little bit of a wine connoisseur. I have lived abroad and many moons ago cut my teeth on a variety of good quality northern Italian wines. Well, my love affair with wine just expanded over the years and I learned more and came to enjoy a variety of wines from different areas of the world. I find my wines here and there locally and love to discover interesting new wineries and wines in the mid-Atlantic.  I heard about a new kind of exclusive wine club recently, something truly different that I thought was worth a try. It is a bit new to be buying wine online and to get a wine delivery service but I like the idea. This is a totally different kind of monthly wine club. I think you will forget those big internet newspaper branded wine clubs after you hear more. 

Winc Wine is not your traditional wine club: they are a direct-distribution global wine company that personalizes the entire wine experience from start to finish.  They are perfecting how wine is made, distributed, perceived and purchased via their special Palate Profile quiz. Here you get recommendations for wine based on your unique tastes and enjoyed on behalf of a new generation of wine drinkers. It takes the headache and guesswork out of picking a bottle from your local liquor store and saves you time. Winc even delivers the perfect bottles directly to your doorstep. They do all this as part of a quest to improve the experience for consumers, create a platform for artisanal wine making, and build a grape-to-glass supply chain that's sustainable for the planet. You can forget intimidating language and steep price points, and just enjoy in the act of sharing a bottle with friends, family or even someone special. As a result they find some exceptional, special and rare wines. I know...maybe I need to seriously consider a career change....

Winc Wine is definitely a different kind of Wine Club.  Winc Wine has several options available. You can start out with a special deal they have now for $22 Off Your First Month of Winc Wine - Winc offers 4 personalized wines each month. Bottles start at $13 each. New members can enjoy $22 off of their first month of Winc's monthly wine subscription right now! Check them out and give it a try. It is convenience and joy all rolled up in one.

CharcoCaps® are the solution to less boom in the room! #sponsored

Disclosure: I received this product to try for free.


I recently joined a fun community called The Upside to learn about new options to help keep my health the best. As a result, I have been given a chance to try one of DSE Healthcare's leading brands, CharcoCaps®. This is a brand that has been around for years. Activated Charcoal is a dietary supplement that can stop gas discomfort and embarrassment. That is important for everyone because we all want to feel good and especially feel confident in social situations like work and life in general! CharcoCaps® is the #1 Activated Charcoal brand too. 


The #1 Activated Charcoal Brand, CharcoCaps® helps you put less boom in the room, literally by using activated charcoal to trap toxins and help you manage gas, bloating, and flatulence.

I received a few things including the following to help me learn more about this great product that works quickly:


  • Sample of CharcoCaps®

I eat a super healthy diet with plenty of fresh vegetables. You always worry though. CharcoCaps® are easy to take and digest and take away the concern. My gut felt comfortable all day and I felt super confident. Sometimes you might worry in quiet situations like a serene yoga class but CharcoCaps® make you feel like you have no worries at all.
