Juil Awaken Your Soles

juil-sandals I grew up running around everywhere barefoot. I love the way I felt free from stress , worry and how wonderful the grass felt between my toes.  I never realized how healthy it actually was. Our bodies are exposed to toxins everyday either from foods or the environment. These toxins find a way to attach them selves to ya. How do ya get rid of em? That’s where the barefoot connection comes in. The earth is full of electrons that help rid our bodies of these toxins. When our bodies connect with the earth it’s electrons help free us of radicals that can have many harmful affects on our bodies. In today’s society ya just can’t walk around barefoot all the time so Juil has a solution. They have created an amazing line of stylish and comfortable shoes that help your body reconnect with the earth. There is some serious science behind all this. Check out this info to learn more:

Why do I need to get connected to the earth?inside-our-technology

Free radicals” occur in our bodies when we are exposed to toxins, pesticides, and generally anything that is toxic to our tissue (now-a-days, its more things than not). Over time, free radicals build up in our bodies. In order for them to become stable, the radicals must find an electron to “connect” themselves to. Where are these electrons then? Beyond the sources found in certain foods, vitamins, etc, we have an abundant source of electrons right beneath us in the earth. If we fail to connect ourselves with these sources, radicals attack our healthy tissue to rob the cells of their electrons. The result? A high potential for infection and inflammation, among other ailments.

· Dr. Carol Davis (Professor Emerita – University of Miami Miller School of Medicine)

How will connecting to the earth help me?

Over time, factors such as stress, man-made electromagnetic fields, toxins, infections and poor diets can contribute to chronic inflammation, which is known to contribute to many types of chronic disease. Inflammation and the free radicals it creates can be partially quenched by fruits, vegetables and other nutrients in a healthy diet. But what else can we do to help outselves? Well, it turns out that our earth’s surface carries a natural, bountiful source of electrons that our bodies also need. These electrons have a balancing effect on our nervous systems and quench free radicals as well. Essentially, when we connect directly with the earth’s surface, electrons rising from its soil or sand will enter our bodies and turn the “negatives” we build up day-to-day into “positives.”

· Dr. Daniel Chong (Naturopathic Doctor)

How does Juil help me make this connection?

Traditional footwear, made with rubber or plastic outsoles may serve a comfort need for us, but it certainly doesn’t help us connect with the earth. On the contrary, it blocks the necessary flow of electrons into our body and prevents us from heeding the earth’s natural resource. By placing Energy Flow Technology™ (compound copper conductors) directly through the footbed and outsole of the sandals, Juil offers a direct conduit between our bodies and the earth’s surface. You are able to go about your day, in comfort, while heeding the earth’s reviving electrons necessary to sustain healthy, stable lives.

Juil sent Hubby over a palg_apollo_brown_frontir of shoes from their men’s line for us to check out. He choose the Apollo style (pictured at left) First off let me tell you not only are these great looking leather sandals they are very well made. Sturdy ergonomically designed soles and arch support mean Hubby is going to be able to enjoy wearing his Juil sandals for awhile. Remember when I told ya Juil  has a way of helping the body rid itself of those nasty toxins? They use Energy Flow Technology. There are copper energy flow conductors are located at the toes and heal. It is important that your foot fits the shoe so that these line up with your toes and heal. Make sure ya follow Juil’s sizing chart to get the proper alignment. We used the size guide and got the perfect fit first try. Hubby loves his Appolo style sandals from Juil. He is super picky about style so to me this means a lot. Looking for a great gift for Dad? Look no further. Did I mention Juil has women’s styles too? Y’all are going to love getting grounded with Juil

REVISED-blink-cover-smaller-resolution-4-450x400BLINK OF AN EYE’



Love this CD. Music is great for children and adults as well. I enjoyed listening to it even without the grandkids around. Mellow and entertaining. One of my favorite children’s music CDs wonderful rhythm, lyrics and vocals. Let’s your imagination run with vivid imagery. Delightful. Love Frances England’s style.

“England has a truly original sound, marrying lo-fi indie rock with simple lyrics that speak to both preschoolers and young grade-schoolers.” — Real Simple magazine
SAN FRANCISCO – The long wait is over!  Award-winning, San Francisco-based family recording artist Frances England looks ahead with pride to the August 6 release of her greatly anticipated, fourth CD for kids and families, Blink of an Eye ($13.99, for ages 5 – 12, run time 28 minutes).

Showcasing eleven Frances England originals and produced by Grammy winner Dean Jones, Blink of an Eye features guest appearances by kindie music luminaries Elizabeth Mitchell, Caspar Babypants, Morgan Taylor (Gustafer Yellowgold), and Molly Ledford (Lunch Money)

Frances England has a gift for capturing the wonders, simple pleasures, and beauty of childhood, and she frames her music in ways that both children and parents can appreciate.  In the vein of Simon & Garfunkel or Jack Johnson, the sparkly, acoustic pop songs on Blink of an Eye are both catchy and heartfelt, the kinds of songs that linger in your head long after listening.  Indeed, Blink of an Eye is imbued with a subtlety that encourages repeat listening.

As Frances England’s own kids have grown, her songs have followed suit.  Frances explains, “Blink of an Eye is very different from my other children’s albums.  My boys are growing up, and more and more, they are listening to their own music and deciding for themselves who they like.  Bruno Mars, Adam Levine, and Taylor Swift are suddenly played alongside Lunch Money and Caspar Babypants.  Blink of an Eye is geared for a slightly older audience than my previous albums and has a quiet pop sensibility about it that I hope both kids and parents will like.”

805416‘DEBBIE MACOMBER’S CEDAR COVE’ Hallmark Channel Original Series World Premiere Saturday, July 20 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C) Starring: Andie MacDowell, Dylan Neal

Hallmark Channel has a big announcement. They are premiering their first ever primetime original series “Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove.” Watch as romance and drama unfold in the beautiful small town of Cedar Cove. The lives of locals like Judge Olivia and newspaper editor, Jack  as well as Bob and Peggy the local Bed and Breakfast owners help make summer hotter on Hallmark Channel.

In “Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove,” Golden Globe® winner Andie MacDowell plays Judge Olivia Lockhart whose Cedar Cove Municipal Court is the professional milieu and social microcosm of issues the 823910judge will face in her own day-to-day life with family and friends. Veteran actor Dylan Neal plays Jack Griffith, the new editor of the Cedar Cove Chronicle and budding love interest for Judge Lockhart. The series is based on the bestselling book series Cedar Cove by #1 New York Times bestselling author, Debbie Macomber.

In the two-hour pilot, Judge Lockhart is overjoyed to hear that her name is being put forth for appointment to a Federal judgeship in Seattle by her longtime friend, Senator Pete Raymond. Olivia asks that her family keep the news a secret. In the meantime, Jack Griffith, desperate for a meaningful news story, corners Olivia’s mother who inadvertently tells the editor about everything in her daughter’s life – including the possible appointment. Suddenly, Olivia (much to her chagrin) is front page news. In the courtroom, Olivia rejects Cecelia and Ian’s petition for divorce, because she is convinced the young couple still loves each other. In the meantime, Olivia’s feelings about daughter Justine’s suitor couldn’t be colder.

I received a screeners copy of the premier for review

Bruce Boxleitner (“TRON,” “Babylon 5,” “Scarecrow and Mrs. King“) and  Barbara Niven (“One Life To Live,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Moonlight & Mistletoe”) will be regulars in the series.
