One eskimO, a great new Indie-band, is one that i just can't get enough of... love sitting on the deck, relaxing with a cocktail in hand, and listening to this fabulous album. i instantly fell in LOVE with the amazing talent of this band. the lead singer has that very soothing and calming voice. it's amazing!

a little more about the band....
  • One eskimO is a critically-acclaimed English band fronted by singer-songwriter Kristian Leontiou and includes musicians Pete Rinaldi (guitar), Jamie Sefton (bass, horns) and Adam Falkner (drums).
  • They currently have the #1 adult alternative song called 'Kandi' which you may have already heard since it's the most played song on all adult rock radio 4 weeks and counting
  • Billboard Magazine calls One eskimO's self-titled debut album "...catchy, ambient pop." and Los Angeles Times Magazine hails the song "Kandi" “a beautiful, aspirational track.”  The album is available in stores now.  
thanks to the One2One Network, I was able to review the album.

4. Slip
5. Simple Day

so smart DVD review and 25% off coupon....

thanks to So Smart!, I was fortunate enough to receive a DVD, king otis and the kingdom of goode: mcflicken's tale of sharing (MRP $12.99) that helped *e* learn the value of patience and sharing her things with her siblings and friends.

In this So Smart! DVD,  King Otis and the Kingdom of Goode, teaches young children important, universal lessons like patience, sharing and respect through captivating stories, catchy songs, and lovable characters. In McFlicken’s Tale of Sharing, McFlicken, a selfish creature who lives in a tree, thinks he’ll be happiest if he doesn’t have to share with the neighbors, especially his tree worms and wing repair glue. But when he finally gets the big tree to himself, he realizes that, without sharing, there can be no happiness. When a baby Lird appears, McFlicken gets the chance he needs to bring his friends home. BONUS: Behind-the-Scenes Storyboards, Two Music Videos, “Draw the Characters” On-screen Tutorial, Printable Coloring Sheets and Trailers. (PC and Mac Compatible) 

*e* was super excited to watch this new DVD. she was captivated by the DVD cover itself. we, of course, sat down to watch it together. as the story began, *e* continually looked at me and smiled a great BIG grin.

she was quite intrigued by the unique characters. she did not move from her spot throughout the entire DVD except to dance along with the catchy tunes. the other members of the *ace* crew also adored the creative and fun storyline.

the mcflicken tale of sharing was a great introduction to the concept of sharing and to the benefits of having your friends around you. it was definitely entertaining and just as i type this, *e* wants to watch it again!

to shop for king otis and the kingdom of goode: mcflicken's tale of sharing DVD as well as other So Smart! DVDs and CDs, please visit their website by clicking HERE.

Special offer for ace & friends readers: 25% off your ENTIRE order at SoSmart.com - use promo code Blog5. happy shopping!

The holiday celebrates the doughnut (a.k.a "donut") — an edible, ring-shaped piece of dough which is deep-fried and sweetened. Many American doughnut stores offer free doughnuts on National Doughnut Day. (source: wikipedia - i {heart} u)

some new outdoor friends...

today i was outside enjoying this strange michigan weather... and pretending to garden. i say *pretending* because i just don't have a green thumb. i like to think otherwise... but it's just not in the cards for me... anyway...

i was then distracted by the chirping sound of a little birdie... seriously it would not stop... let me tell ya... chirping non-stop can get a little agitating... well... low and behold i figured out why....

check out my new little friend hanging out in our tree...

i guess it was dinner time because it's momma had it's *delightful* meal in it's mouth...

 eat up.

so they say bees pollinate... and yep, they sure do... distracted AGAIN!

why is it that a bee looks so cute and fuzzy in a photo and completely annoys me otherwise..... DARN BEES. *sigh*

hope you are enjoying your day. now... back to planting.
