Grill Tongs from Cave Tools Review

BBQ Tools - Cave Tools

  Cave Tools is ready with all your outdoor grilling needs for your perfect summer cookouts.  I was lucky to get to review  thier Grill Tongs.  These super duper, heavy duty tongs use 20% thicker stainless steel.  They are meant to never bend or break while turning heavy meats.
  We used these tongs last night to cook big, thick t- bone steaks and they turned them perfectly.
Here is a pic of my son turning the steaks:

Catch The Fox by Goliath Games Review

  I am happy to say I just reviewed another amazing game from Goliath Games -  Catch The Fox.
  This is a really fun game!  Now that summer is full blown my kids and I get really tired of the same boring days, so game night makes the time so much more fun.  Catch The Fox is perfect for ages 4 and up and 2 - 4 players.  
  That silly fox is always after those chicks.  He catches them and puts them in his pockets.  You need to spin and add that number of chicks to the fox' pockets, then tap him on the head and if his pants fall down you try to gather up as many chicks as you can to fill up your chicken coop.  The first player to fill up their coop first is the winner.

Cave Tools Grill Brush Review

Grill Brushes - Cave Tools
  I was lucky enough to once again review for Cave Tools.  I love Cave Tools because every product I have ever tried of theirs has been excellent.
  The Cave Tools BBQ Grill Brush is another great product.  We are a family of grillers and at least 3 times a week something is cooked on the grill.  One thing I am picky about is the cleanliness of the grill.  All the brushes we have used in the past worked for a while and then the bristles start to fall off into the foods and the brushes always rust.  Well, not this Cave Tools Grill Brush!  This brush is 100% rust proof, easy to grip and does a great job cleaning along the sides and top of each of the grill grates.

"In The Flesh" a book by Michael Gabriele



  I recently read a remarkable book that was written by the author  Michael Gabriele.  This book is titled, "In The Flesh".  It is written from the view of Jesus himself.  The most remarkable story ever told is written as Jesus felt, loved and died.  Walk with Jesus from 3 years before his death, to his death, then the resurrection.
  I love the story of Jesus and his walk on Earth as a human through the picking of the apostles and on up until the crucifixion.  Having read the Bible, watched movies and heard the story, I definitely know the ending, but never have I thought about how Jesus actually felt during those times.  Michael Gabriele places you in the sandals of Jesus and you come about as close to the real thing as possible.

Goliath Games - New! Doggie Doo Family Game Review


  Doggie Doo is a new improved game from Goliath Games. The old doggie has been replaced with a cuter version of America's favorite dog. Take turns spinning the wheel for how many times you squeeze the handle on Doggie's leash.  Hopefully your turn won't end up with your doggie having to go.  But, like the saying goes, "When you gotta go, you gotta go."
  I received this adorable, a little queasy (only joking), game from Goliath Games.  It comes with squishy, colored food pellet pooh drops, which of course are not actually pooh, but your child will laugh like crazy when their opponent gets the drop of the pooh on their turn.
  Below my grandson is playing me in a game of Doggie Doo:

"Healing the Nation" a Spiritual Book for Healing America by Tom Donnan Review/Giveaway

Healing the Nation by [Donnan, Tom]

  "Healing the Nation" is a powerful book by the author Tom Donnan.  This book will definitely open your eyes to the destruction of our country and what we, as Americans, as people, can do to ask God to save us.
   Tom Donnan was pronounced dead by a heart attack in Feb, 2006, but God saved his life and has used him to tell others about the plan to save America and ourselves.  Churches across America have become mediocre and we people are straddling the fences with our relationship with God.  Tom has had many dreams that he in turn tells people what they represent.

CaveTools Chicken Wing & Leg Rack Review

Grill Racks - Cave Tools
  I love reviewing products for CaveTools because everything they make is so unique and works great!  I was given the opportunity to try their Chicken Wing & Leg Rack and this product is awesome.  If your family is like mine, we love chicken legs and chicken wings. I have never been able to figure out how to cook these without them sticking to the pan or all the sauce coming off.
With the CaveTools Chicken Wing & Leg Rack it is simple to cook them perfectly.
