Anne McCaffery… RIP You Are Missed

Today it’s time to talk about some great nineties Sci-fi/fantasy. If you attempt to write fantasy, like me, and you have never heard of this author you should be ashamed of yourselves 😉 Anne McCaffrey has graced us with her wonderful writings for decades now and though she has sadly passed on (RIP) her works live on through their wonderful nature and through the work carried on by her son Todd McCaffrey, an author and self-proclaimed geek. He started working on one of Anne’s series, the Pern Series, before her death and they have worked collaboratively on several novels. Reading just one book of the many she has produced both during life and after her passing you will find yourself immersed in a World of fantasy, science fiction, imagination and (somehow) reality. The Worlds she creates are so real and much like several of the other books I have written about, you will find yourself needing to read more.

Her multiple works count among their number her Dragonriders of Pern series, her The Tower and the Hive Series and her Acorna series. I can tell you with some authority that all her works are marvelous but I have to concentrate on her The Tower and the Hive series as they have always been my favourite. They are based around women with telepathic and teleportation abilities that form the backbone of the FT & T world federation for… well basically they make different Worlds in different Galaxies function. These women are known as Primes and are all linked together through their considerable mental agility. I will do individual book reviews as and when I can but I love this series for how real Anne McCaffrey makes them. They are powerful beings but she deals with complexities like relationships with men of considerable character and mental abilities of their own, mental handicaps and loneliness. You will find yourself drawn into the Worlds and love every single minute of reading each book as they have a smooth tempo and immersive vocab. The first one is as the picture shows entitled The Rowan and I highly suggest you pick it up for a read 🙂

What do you think? 🙂 Thank you 🙂

We live in a world were it seems to be opened season on consumers. So, is there evidence that detox foot patches work? we can confidently say yes! The visual proof after using detoxifying foot pads is credible. The improvement is obvious when used over several consecutive days. A highly accredited Environmental Laboratory, SRC Analytical Lab, analyzed multiple samples of foot pads. It discovered absorption into the pads of Arsenic, Mercury, Nickel and many others. detox-foot-patches-benefitsA syncrometer was used to analyze multiple pads for a number of folks. The syncrometer identified the following substances in the used pads: aluminum, arsenic, asbestos, benzene, cadmium, copper, DAB dye, fast green dye, isopropyl alcohol, lead, methyl alcohol, mercury, nickel, sudan black dye, thallium, and a plastic byproduct. Scientists analyzed the hair of people before and after the use of the detoxifying foot pads. The difference in levels of toxins was obvious. Japan scientists have conducted detailed research of foot pads using Thermography. They discovered that the pads are able to quicken circulation and thus the detoxification of the body. A study discovered that the cleansing foot pads increase the presence of alpha brain waves. These waves play a role in the healing and relaxation processes. There is one very important thing to keep in mind. You must be careful of cheap, fake detox foot patches. They usually contain lower quality or in some cases harmful substances. This is the principal reason why so many people did not achieve satisfying results with detoxifying foot pads.
