Music - Rock Symphonies

Rock SymphoniesA child prodigy born in Germany, David Garrett has been amazing fans around the world since he was a young boy. By age 12, Garrett was playing on stage with the London Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Russian National Orchestra.

Rock Symphonies, the latest release from this best-selling classical artist, breathes new life into the classic music genre. A unique blend of classic violin music and contemporary rock songs, Rock Symphonies is a moving celebration of Garrett’s two loves: classical music and the rock-and-roll songs of his generation. This month, PBS will air Garrett's sold-out concert performance in Berlin.

Education for everyone at American Public University

As my older kid enters pre-school, I feel like joining him - getting back in the game, so to speak. But I can't. I have a baby who needs me at all times. Plus the courses I have to take to get my Masters degree will eat into both my time and budget. Or so I felt everytime I explored this option of returning back to school. Thanks to American Public University (APU), Moms like me now have a great choice!

Help prevent Cervical Cancer


I remember the first time I heard about the HPV vaccine was also the first time I ever heard about cervical cancer. That a cancer can be prevented from a vaccine still seems miraculous to me. Especially since Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer affecting women worldwide.

But I always thought HPV vaccines are for girls and young women ages 9–26 to help protect against the two types of HPV that are most commonly associated with cervical cancer. As it turns out, that's not all!

Dvd - JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH

James and the Giant Peach (Two-Disc Special Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo) [Blu-ray]

Inspired by Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s book, this is the story of a young boy named James who gains possession of some magic crocodile tongues after the daring rescue of a spider. When James spills them in the garden, out sprouts an enormous peach!  Climbing inside, he meets an astonishing cast of characters and embarks on a magical odyssey full of thrills and adventure.

The mix of fantasy and adventure proved to be an irresistible lure to my kid and even I had fun watching it. Having not read the orginal story, I can't confirm how much of it was true to the book. But there's no denying the charm or the wonderful way this movie captures and captivates its audience.

Dvd Review - The Last Song

The Last SongAt its heart, The Last Song is a poignant journey for a father (Greg Kinnear) and daughter (Miley Cyrus) who have lost touch with each other and are struggling to find a way back. At the same time, it explores the uncharted territory of young love, as the emotionally closed off Ronnie begins to let down her guard with a boy (Liam Hemsworth) she meets during summer vacation.

This Nicholas Sparks novel-converted-to-film is another tear-jerker, but simply not of the same caliber as the movie version of The Notebook.
