I Have a New Book


I have a new book for my library.
I have finally received my copy of Aaron's self published work. It has been soo worth the wait.
The book is titled:-
The Fantasy Artroom Book One - Detail and Whimsy
by Aaron Pocock

The effort this man has gone into to produce this beautiful book is amazing. I am going to learn soo much from this.
Aaron took on producing this amazing work many months ago and funded it through Kickstarter.
I am soo pleased to have contributed to this by funding ( a small amount $100) to getting this beautiful book into reality. For that I have received a signed copy with its own original drawing inside. Two number copies of prints and two original sketches. Isn't that brilliant!

It will also be a book I would highly recommend, or give as a gift, to anyone who is interested in learning art. There are 152 pages full of detailed information on how to draw and paint fantasy characters and landscapes.
If you would like to know more about this book please go to Aaron's own web site. Scroll down to some more of his amazing work. Click here.

Care and Feeding of Your Kefir Grains

I have just been given some Kefir Grains and in looking for some information on how to look after them and use them I found the blog below. This person can tell you more than I ever could and so please link to it to find out more info.

Real Food, My Way: Care and Feeding of Your Kefir Grains

I will just say that I have know the man who gave me the Kefir for over 6 years and he is looking younger and healthier than I have ever seen him. I am hoping to have the same results as I KNOW that a good gut flora will do wonders for the whole body.
