Tips for Tuesday - Books: Pets Letters To God 2, Entitlemania, and Shambala Junction

We may have been given some of the below mentioned books for free for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own. This post may also include affiliate links. If you click on a link and make a purchase, we may be compensated.

Me - Today I am recommending Pet Letters to To God 2 by Spots Labowski and Ellen Phillips. This book is made up of letters that animals have supposedly sent to God. It is really funny. It's got some pictures too, and they are usually really cute. Kids who like animals and hearing about the funny things that they might say if they could talk would love this book.

Mom - Today I am recommending two books one has to do with over parenting and how it hurts children and gives them a sense of entitlement and what to do about it and the other has to do with a young woman who overcomes that on her own.
Entitlemania by Richard Watts is a nonfiction book about how not to spoil your children. He thinks that the reason that children today feel so entitled is that their parents make them that way. He preaches a kind of extreme parenting that I don't think a lot of parents can live up to which includes keeping children out of family businesses and not letting them inherit a lot of money. Watts presents his views clearly and convincingly, and it is a book that definitely makes you think. However, I don't think a lot of parents could stick to the kind of parenting that Watts suggest because it goes against their basic instincts as parents to help their children as much as they can. It has a lot to do with the way a person is raised and the example their own parents set for them. Watts is able to practice what he preaches, because that is the way he was raised but not everyone was raised that way. Also, a lot of the book like matters pertaining to family businesses and inheritances of large sums of  money only apply to wealthier families and not the majority of poor to average families.  The book does make you think though and is interesting to read.
Shambala Junction by Dipka Mukherjee is about Iris. She is living the life she is expected to live and engaged to the man she is expected  to marry, a man that she may or may not love. Then, one night they are travelling on a train, when the train makes a temporary stop, Iris steps off and is inadvertantly left behind. There she meets Aman and his family and her life completely changes when she gets caught up in their attempts to recover their missing baby who was accidentally left at an orphanage. The plot sounds crazy and unbelievable when you hear it, but it works and makes for a very intriguing story when you actually read the book. The story moves along quickly and really draws you in.  The story is full of interesting  well drawn characters who are likable at times and not at others (although one or two of the characters are never likable)  Although at first, Iris may seem weak minded or spoiled, she shows a lot of growth over the course of the story, and over all, she is an admirable character that you can root for. All in all, it is a good book with a great story and a satisfying ending.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.

Monthly Mash-up for January, 2017 Dogs/Puppies and The Legacy of the Mary Tyler Moore show

Me - My topic for this month is dogs/puppies. I love puppies so much. They are adorable. I have always loved them. I have never owned a dog although I have always wanted to.  The closest I have ever come to having a dog is having a cat that acts like a dog and sits at the table waiting for scraps. Both my mom and dad had dogs when they were kids. I am jealous of that. My aunt has always had a dog. At least as long as I remember she has. When I was little she had a dog named Pumpkin. I had a really close bond with her. She was so cute and sweet and I miss her so so so much. Now my aunt has a boy dog and his name is Leo. I love him but I still really miss Pumpkin. Whenever I go to my aunt's house my sister, my cousin and I always go out and walk Leo. He has a tiny little jacket for the seasons winter and fall when it is cold. It is the cutest thing in the whole world.One time when me and my mom were in New York, we saw a dog with little shoes. It was weird to see but it was also really cute. I love when puppies look like stuffed animals it looks so so cute. Some of my favorite breeds of dogs/puppies are pugs, golden retrievers, dalmatians and many more too. Dogs are so cute and  fun to lay with and I really love them.



Mom - My topic for this month is the Mary Tyler Moore show. The death of Mary Tyler Moore has made me feel really nostalgic.  I remember watching the show with my grandmother when I was a kid. At the time, I was too young to know how groundbreaking the show was. I just knew how entertaining it was and how funny. What an amazing cast it had too! Not one of those actors just faded away into the woodwork after the series ended; they were  all just too good and too talented for that.   Despite the talent of the cast and the successful careers they went on to have following the show, none of them tried to move on to allegedly greener pastures during the run of the show. They all stayed with show until the end except for Valerie Harper and Cloris Leachman who left for spin-offs.  All of the shows actors went on to have long  and mostly successful careers after the show. Many of them appeared in other TV series like Loveboat (Gavin MacLeod) and Too Close for Comfort (Ted Knight). The latter might not have been as successful as some cast members follow-up series but even that show ran for several years. Some cast members even went on to two or more follow-up series like Betty White  who starred in both the Golden Girls and Hot in Cleveland. The Mary Tyler Moore show itself had three spin offs, Rhoda, Phyllis, and Lou Grant. Two of these shows ran for at least about five years themselves They don't make television like the Mary Tyler Moore show or shows with that caliber of a cast anymore.

And that's our view. What's on your mind?

God of Carnage
Friday January 20, 2017 to Sunday January 29, 2017 In an economy motel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant. In the room next door, two undercover cops are supposed to catch the meeting on videotape. But there's some confusion as to who's in which room, who's watching the video, who's taken the money, who's hired a hit man, and why the accountant keeps taking off her clothes. This Pennington Players’ show is filled with doors slamming, clothes flying, and bagpipes bleating, all of which adds up to an over-the-top tale of mix-ups and mayhem that’s laugh-out-loud funny from start to finish.

Under a star-filled sky, five performers encamped in the wilderness venture into a full-bodied, psychotropic walkabout - where the push and pull of an extreme event propels each of them to confront their place in the universe. Against an original pulsating sound score that grinds synth and bass, FUTURE PERFECT wrestles with our desperation for a spiritual sign and asks: What magic is left? With daredevil physicality, VIM VIGOR communicates the complexity of human relationships through their signature dance-theater aesthetic, bodies will flare, emotions will flood, and the sharp urgency of our deepest fears will rocket through space. FUTURE PERFECT premiered in September 2016 at the historic Lobero Theatre with DANCEworks in Santa Barbara.
