My Thoughts

I was thrilled to review Nature's Gate Toothpaste because it is fluoride free, and safe to swallow.  Here, locally, all the available children's toothpastes have fluoride in them, and I can only find "fluoride free" in adult toothpaste - which, for most of them, I don't feel are safe for my kids to swallow.    Another plus is that this toothpaste is also paraben & sulfate free!  


I gotta say, just opening the toothpaste - it smells fantastic!  My kids just loved the cherry flavor, and for once there were no complaints about the taste or that the toothpaste burned their mouths. This  toothpaste gets a definite thumbs up from me!  When we run out, I'll be ordering more!  Thanks to Nature's Gate for introducing us to this awesome natural toothpaste!!



DVD Review : Jack Irish, Season 1


Emmy® winner Guy Pearce (Memento, Iron Man 3) returns as Jack Irish, the brooding, alcoholic Australian antihero of Peter Temple's award-winning crime novels. When a man he is hired to find is killed in front of him, Jack suspects a set-up, and the case spirals into an international conspiracy. Meanwhile, Jack's on-again, off-again girlfriend, journalist Linda Hillier (Marta Dusseldorp, A Place to Call Home) is in Manila following a story. Their cases eventually intertwine in a complex narrative brimming with dark humor and memorable characters. “A classic noir”–Wall Street Journal. 6 episodes, 5 ¼ hrs, 2 DVDs, SDH. Mature audiences.

My Thoughts 

Jack Irish was a criminal lawyer but in this DVD set he's decided to switch sides after his wife is murdered. Now he's a part-time private investigator, trying to hunt down the same people he used to set free. On the side, he also works as a debt collector and both occupations get him into more than a little trouble. There are two full length episodes on this disk.

Episode 1
A witness to a massacre in the Philippines gets kidnapped, and it gets tangled up with another case Jack is working on. Linda has a new job in Manila.

Episode 2
The woman who gave Jack an alibi  turns out to be the attorney general’s daughter.  Barry could be suspension because of Jack. . Jack asks Linda to help find out who put  money into his account.

Episode 3
Jack convinces his lawyer to give him the name of the witness that is trying to set him up. He visits the attorney general to get more information about Tina. Orton learns about Linda’s investigation.

Episode 4
Linda and Orton find a ruined village but are forced to leave when fighting breaks out.  Tina's body is found and Jack is invited to grief counselling. 

Episode 5
 Jack is recuperating after a  bomb goes off in Sarah’s workshop. Linda heads back to Melbourne to see Jack, but it's not a happy meeting.

Episode 6
Jack is a suspect in  Pastor Rob’s murder, and it could cause problems in the big horse race.   Linda finally gets her interview, but it doesn't go completely according to plan.

I have to say Guy Pearce does and amazing job in this role. His brooding presence coupled with that nice physique is just the type of semi-bad boy that makes my heart thump. Knowing the sad plight behind his behavior just makes him even more appealing because you know there's a good guy under all the trouble. I am definitely hoping to see a set 2 out for Jack Irish in the near future because this is one show I just can't get enough of. Now that I've seen the show, I'm definitely going to have to get my hands on the books! If you want to get your hands on this great DVD set, you can order Jack Irish Set One on DVD at Acorn Media or on Amazon.

"I write about characters who remind me of myself at times and my sister at times, but never fully so. My stories are told from a woman's point of view with a destiny. Characters drive my writing and my reading." Having grown up in the South with a mother from Westchester County New York, Joan has a unique take on blending the Southern traditions with the eye of a Northerner. She spent most of her childhood in North Carolina and now resides in Athens, Georgia.
