Stylish Eyeglasses That Protect Your Eyes, Are Eco-Friendly

Eyeglasses
There are two truths in our home when it comes to wearing eye glasses; we all wear them, in some form, whether prescription eye glasses or sunglasses, and we all lose them. Both the kids, Doug and I all purchase several pairs of sunglasses throughout the summer because we’re always misplacing them. But, at least we recognize and honor the importance of protecting our eyes from the harmful sun’s rays.

Recently, we came across an amazing company that not only makes stylish sunglasses and reading glasses, but their company supports the environment and breast cancer research! The amazing folks as ICU Eyewear sent us a few pairs to facilitate our review so that we can share our thoughts with you. Our opinions are are own.

Prepare Yourself For #TheQuest: The Groundbreaking New Show on ABC

#TheQuest

How does one not act like a total giggling fan girl when you get to interview Jane Fleming, Mark Ordesky and Rob Eric, the Executive Producers of ABC’s new show, The Quest. Especially considering that Mark Ordesky was also one of the Executive Producers of The Lord Of The Rings trilogy! I take a half hour breath, and only a few minute break from my Cheshire Cat-like grin, to interview them about a groundbreaking new show for which they’ve partnered.


 The Quest is a new reality adventure that takes 12 lucky contestants on the journey of a lifetime when they enter the world of “Everealm.” For The Quest, the Executive Producer of the blockbuster movie franchise The Lord of the Rings has joined forces with the creators and producers of The Amazing Race to conjure a land of magic and malevolence, where mythical creatures lurk in the woods, agents of darkness stir in the shadows, and mystical beings infiltrate the keep. For 12 lucky souls, a fantastic world will come alive in a unique competition series where players will engage in epic challenges. Fantasy meets reality when one player emerges as a real-life hero.

The Quest is from executive producers Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri (The Amazing Race, Profiles Television), executive producers Mark Ordesky and Jane Fleming (Court Five), and executive producers Rob Eric and Michael Williams (Green Harbor Productions).


After a few moments of my thanking them – profusely and repeatedly – we finally get to the Q & A part of the interview… what a novel idea.
