Starlink Battle for Atlas Nintendo Switch Review.

(Save $25 on Starter Packs. Plus, save 30% on Starlink toys at Best Buy December 16 - 22 for the Holidays - )

Starfox was/still is one of my favorite games to play on NES. When I saw the Nintendo Switch was coming out with Starlink, along with the Starter pack, Weapons kit, Pilot kit and Starship pack - It brought back the crew and rocket trusting through meteors, ships/lasers to save the Captain.

My entire family enjoys video games.

I did play the game first, and then let my son, nephew and neice play as well.

My first impression was, it's really cool how you choose a pilot first, snap him in, then the ship you want to fly snaps in over him. Followed by what two weapons you'd like attached to your ship. Each weapon does something different. Mostly by what weakness an enemy has (fire,water,etc.)Each modular component and pilot attached to the starship appears instantly in-game, allowing players to directly affect the course of their battle in a meaningful way.

My two favorites so far has been the Shredder mk.2, along with the crusher. I was taking Imps, cyclops and nodes out like nothing. I already have a ship I prefer: Arwing is easier on sharp turns and through small areas.

If you are looking for a fun, flying game, definitely get Starlink Battle for Atlas. There is a lot to do on the maps, and side quests.

The Starter Pack comes with:

Pilots: Fox McCloud, Mason Rana.

Fighter Ship: Arwing

Weapons: Flamethrower, Frostbite

The controller mount

And Nintendo Switch Video game on a memory card.

A Starlink Battle for Atlas Poster.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas is an open-world space saga that features modular toy technology that allows players to assemble and customize real-world physical starships, link the starships to their game controller, and launch into an epic adventure across the Atlas star system, either in single player or with a friend in two-player split-screen local co-op.

If you want more pilots, and weapons there are different available kits at Best buy, Available on Nintendo Switch, the PlayStation®4 and Xbox One.

Review for the Fossil - Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch 40mm Stainless Steel - Rose Gold!

This is a review for the Fossil - Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch 40mm Stainless Steel - Rose Gold.

This Fossil Gen4 Google Smart Watch is by far the nicest watch I have owned. It is definitely fashion meets function, and the watches face is customizable.

If you hold down the middle side button the settings will pop up and it's touch screen like a small tablet, you scroll for what settings you'd like to open, display, wifi, syncing, apps, power off.

First thing I noticed was the shine on the Rose Hold stainless steel band. It glistened and from afar gives off the impression of diamonds on the band itself. It's extremely comfy to wear.

To charge the Fossil Smart watch it comes with a USB cord that's like a magnetic charger and taps perfectly on the back of the watch.

Setting The watch up did not take any time. I turned it on, set language, and was prompted to open the Google play store on my cell phone to download the app. The watch is compatible with iPhone/iOS and Android.

I use mine mostly for tracking my health.  I walk, and move a lot at work this time of the year.  It's good to make every minute matter with smart help and health coaching, from the convenience of my wrist.

Proactive Help From the Google Assistant: Keeps you ahead of your day with proactive, personalized help from Google Assistant, even before you ask.

Smarter Health Coaching from Google Fit: Motivates you towards a healthier life with coaching and activity tracking based on guidelines from the American Heart Association & World Health Organization.

These evidence-based metrics measure activity intensity, and smarter health coaching makes your fitness goals more achievable by motivating you to stay active throughout your day, everyday.

Reconnecting with lost faith.

I have been going through a lot lately. Between being a parent to a special needs child, the worry if he's going to be safe in the private day school he attends, to transportation van, to the house I just bought. The house needs a lot of things restored. Part of it is from the 1880s while an additional added in 2008. Now I have hit a deer, and my car insurance is refusing to fix the steering column. I don't know what else to do. I feel emotionally, and mentally weak. Life is just hitting me back to back, and I need to believe in something.

Mainly I need to believe in a greater power, that things will come together and me, and my family will be alright. I'm really trying to be functioning here. I have a house, loans, a son, two cats, and just adopted a puppy that needed a home. I have a big house, and a big heart. I know there has to be more than this, and spiritual wise I want to be a good person and attract other good people. I am tired of negative feelings, I am ready to embrace all good feelings.

My plan is to surround myself with good people, positive energy, like minds that there is more in this Universe than just us, the pain, the debt. I need to believe in the good in people, the light in people that we are going to be okay, and whatever this - this negative phase trying to keep me in this thought process that keeps looping back to everything is pointless.. I need help breaking that thought. I have cried for weeks now, and worrying myself sick how am I going to make this work. I do believe you need to give positive energy to get positive energy. 

I can't make this work on my own. This is when I came across Prophet Kofi Danso. Prophet To Danso has written 15 books on religion, spirituality and reconnecting with your lost faith.  A few of his books are A Church as a Clinic, The Spel, Kingdom Keys, and many others. I have came to the realization I need faith now more than ever. As I was reading igniting my love connectng with my faith and God. I know I am lost, and I do feel alone like I have no family, or spiritual support. Prophets are for people like me, or you that need a little guidance in finding our faith again. I personally want to feel the warmth of God's love, and open arm embrace of feeling welcomed, we all need to feel that, and not alone. We are not alone, and yes, whatever this path is, there are always more paths, turn-arounds, connecting roads to find my way back to my spirituality. I do agree with the Prophet that the Church is a clinic, and sometimes our Souls are sick (signs your Soul is sick,) and lost, we just need tht light to heal them along with others who share the same positive goal.

Sometimes we all just need a extra guiding hand, and insight to find our way back on track to make our minds back to ourselves. Full of love, light, and a higher being.

If you have a Kia Soul, do not get Geico Insurance.

Disclaimer: There are sponsored links in this post, and all information is my ow about my experience.

So you get car insurance for collision accidents, like on Nov 1, we hit a deer. Basically I just have a junk car to get rid of since insurance and Kia motors refuses to take blame for the power steering column yet it's recalled in other years with the same power steering coupling.

The collision shop tells GEICOs auto inspector the power steering is broken from impact and requests after body work is done Kia motors looks at it to fix and be reimbursed for the steering column work.

The Geico inspector has the Body shop send the Car to Kia and even tells me they believe it was due to impact.

The police report and of the accident even has the Surry County officiers putting the deer down, and requesting a wrecker to pull the car out of the ditch on a 55mph road.

The Kia diagnosis says the power steering is not responding, and Geico refused to pay the supplement to get it fixed.

  • November 27, Geico denies the supplement work even tho Geico Inspector had it sent to diagnosis.  I had to pay for the diagnosis, and rental car myself even tho I have full coverage and wasn't at mu $1500 max.  

First I was told it's a common issue for Kia's steering columns but Kia says that's not what they told Geico and that isn't my year under recall, and the wires need to be checked and no one has checked for loose wires or couplings. The body shop did replace the radiator, ac/heat, windshield wiper reseviour, and shock about, bumpers, lights, brackets, but Geico is saying there wasn't enough impact during an accident (tho you grab the wheel to not die) that would interfer with the steering column.

Then I was told it's electrical, and I have paperwork proving a Geico inspector lying about what Kia actually said. Kia says it can't say wether or not, and that my car is not on recall and that it needs to be checked for loose wiring since it's not responding, all they did was a diagnosis.


I believe Geico has found a loophole to deny Kia claims.

Update 1/3/2019: I found out through the Kia owners portal there is a corrusion recall for my Vin #, I made a claim through Kia yet still no one had contacted me.  I think everyone is not taking blame, if this is a steering, electric issue due from the recall this is a bigger issue, and more concerning . Still no one from Kia has contacted me back after the first inquiry and Geico will not budge.

I am trying now to raise $ for a down payment for a used car, my credit took a huge blow on the loans to buy and restore this house.  Kia nor Geico cares.

I work 6 days a week, and am stressing about even getting to work.  There is no public transportation here. I have a special needs 8 year old, and I feel like everything is against us lately.  I don't know what else to do but to keep trying.

Baby food should be Natural too! Check out Beechnut Natural Baby Food.

"This is Not Baby Food, This is Real Food for Babies." What I found great about the new Beech Nut Flavors is that there are No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.  It really is just whole, natural foods.  I really believe everything we consume should be cooked this way.  Why add extra flavors? Why add extra preservatives? What is the point in even dying? Or Bleaching foods?  Other than "It's the wrong color" Who made these rules that natural produce has to be changed to be able to consume? It doesn't have to be.

Little baby Autumn absolutely loved the Beach Nut flavors. Here she is tearing up the just Apple I even tried some, and it's some of the best Apple Sauce I've tasted in a long time. There are other flavors too. The photos below, the colors of the Beech Nut Baby Food vivid.  They are as vivid as they are full of flavor.

The jars are 4.5 oz, and 100% Natural inside.  If you want to find out more about Beech Nuts newest line of food for babies, go to the links below.

Finally appliances that match my personality!

I am all about ways to express myself. It only makes sense to me to have my appliances match my personality, and creativeness while remodeling my house.

Introducing the CafĂ© Matte Collection by GE.  It is a collection of modern kitchen appliances that I can customize.

They come in Modern Matte Black or elevated Matte White finishes set the canvas, and our distinct line of customizable hardware options complete the look that reflects your personal style. Its time appliances had a personality.

I just painted my cabinets a vintage blue wood stain and the Matte white finish would look perfect and match what I am trying to achieve.
