    Musings With a Cuppa - The Poetry of Tea is a collection of original tea poetry dedicated to those who not only understand the complexity of creating a fine cuppa, but also appreciate the simplicity of its enjoyment. Although a product of this century, each poem embodies the flavor and spirit of Edwardian England. From the very beginning of the first verse the reader is taken back to the early 1900's where a gracious society was built on civility and decorum.

    I listened to these poems with a cuppa and felt rather relaxed and uplifted afterwards. I enjoyed the gentle simplicity that they imparted, with the occasional dash of humour. As a lover of tea and poetry, I thought this was a pleasant audiobook.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this lecture series and found it to be very useful indeed. As a volunteer storyteller at my local library, I was able to pick up several tips relating to the craft. The lecturer is clearly very passionate about the art of storytelling and delivered each lecture with great enthusiasm.

  • Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?

    Throughout most of evolution humans walked barefoot and slept on the ground, largely oblivious that the surface of the Earth contains limitless healing energy. Science has discovered this energy as free-flowing electrons constantly replenished by solar radiation and lightning. Few people know it, but the ground provides a subtle electric signal that maintains health and governs the intricate mechanisms that make our bodies work - just like plugging a lamp into a power socket makes it light up.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The concept of earthing is very interesting and I appreciate the fact that this author has shared his findings. However, I stopped listening at the half way mark because it started to read more like a sales pitch/infomercial rather than an informative wellness book.

    Consumerism is everywhere. It shapes the way we eat, shop, rest, think, love and believe. We can't escape it, but how can we live well in the midst of it? We are daily seduced by a 250 billion dollar marketing machine. But how often do we consider how this might influence us? The current prevailing orthodoxy is that life should be lived to the max. By contrast, Jesus modeled a life of joyful limitation - free to do; free not to do. Consumer Detox, complete with the Detox Diary in the back of the book with suggestions for each chapter, encouraging stories, and space for writing personal reflections....

    Any additional comments?

    Initially, this book was engaging and somewhat insightful, putting forward some interesting commentary about modern day consumerism. However, the author started getting very religious in sections, which was both unexpected and somewhat out of place given the way the rest of the book was written. Thus this book would be best suited to a Christian readership.
