Beauty's Curse by C.S. Johnson Review

Alternate views of fairy tales seems to be the new thing in books and movies these days. Beauty’s Curse by C.S. Johnson is one of the latest in this genre. With Princess Aurora of Rhone, whom her friends call Rose, we find out what would happen if Sleeping Beauty would take it on herself to find a way to beat the curse that was to come upon her when she reached the age of 18. Some of her friends are bent on revenge. Others want to find a way to end the curse. All of them are there to help Rose. The book is well written and if you love stories about Princesses and fairies full of magic and adventure, you will love Beauty’s Curse, the first in the Once Upon a Princess Saga.

The First Bobby Hart Solo Album

You may only know the hit songs he wrote and produced for groups like The Monkees, Jay and the Americans or Little Anthony and the Imperials. Maybe you know him as part of the songwriting and preforming duo of Boyce and Hart with hits like I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight or Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows. Now you can hear how good Bobby Hart was as a solo artist with rerelease of his solo album. Don't expect the pop sounds that he has become known for. This is blue eyed soul music at its best. Included is a great booklet of photos, a recap of Bobby Hart's history and an interview with Mr. Hart by founder of 7A Records Iain Lee. Go to this Amazon link to buy it today http://www.amazon.com/First-Bobby-Hart-Solo-Album/dp/B017RMIMNA/ref=as_sl_pc_ss_til?tag=onmymind-20&linkCode=w01&linkId=ILMNO3F2XD6A4U26&creativeASIN=B017RMIMNA

America: The good result from a bad situation


     I believe that people are put into situations for a reason. God will put you into a bad situation so that something good will come out of it. Even the very foundation of the USA proves this. Columbus discovered America and for a few years countries came here to get resources that they could sell and use back in their country. Squanto, an Indian, was taken from his tribe to live as a slave in the home of one of those people. There he learned to speak English and earned favor and was sent back to America. But he had to live in another tribe as his was killed off by a disease that would have claimed him too, if he had not been taken away. In that tribe he taught others to speak English.

     Soon after that, the Pilgrims arrived to escape to religious freedom from England were the government was telling them how to worship God. They were not ready for the harsh winters and had little knowledge of farming. Many of them died. They were about to give up and return to England when one of Squanto's friends came upon them. The Pilgrims had settled down in the spot where Squanto's previous tribe had been. He introduced them to Squanto and his Chief. Through them they were taught how to survive the winters in what would later be called Massachusetts and how to farm.  From there the national holiday of Thanksgiving, thanking God for their survival in the new world, it's not really about the turkey, was created.

     From that the USA was born. A country that has fought for freedom ever since. We have fought to keep ours and to help others get their freedom. People ask us for help and can come to us to live free. In World War II we went to war to help other countries and the Jewish to live and to worship as they thought God would want them to. Jewish people came to live here to escape the death sentences that the Nazi's had for them in Germany.

     All this goodness to the world cameo about from a bad situation. When Squanto was kidnapped to be a slave. Because he came back speaking English, he unknowingly helped create the USA that has bought freedom to so much of the world and gave those that could find freedom in their own country a place to go. This may seem like a late Thanksgiving day message but it's really one we need to keep in mind everyday and to give thanks to God for creating the United States of America.
