Teaser Tuesdays ~ The Chinaman by Stephen Leather




Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by the lovely MizB of Should Be Reading.

Here's how it works...

Grab your latest read, open it up and share two sentences from the page. Easy as that. Don't forget to link back to MizB and share the title and author of your book so others can add to their TBR (to be read) list if they wish.





Here's my teaser...

The bike's lights were still flashinig. Her frown deepened and at that moment the twenty-five pounds of Semtex explosive in the back carrier box exploded in a flash of blinding white light, blowing in the window and striking her with thousands of glass daggers.





Have a great day/night and I'll see you again soon.
Happy reading,
Love KB

Keeping Up With KB - Resolutions



I can't believe we're one week into the new year already. It's been a busy week for us but a good  busy time.

I've made my resolutions, as I do every year. I'm pleased that some of the resolutions I made last year have stuck. I've given up coffee, we've started growing our own veggies  and I eat fruit and/or vegetables with most of my meals. Still working on the fitness, (as usual) and drinking less wine, (as usual) but I'm getting there.



As well as the old faithfuls (exercise, drinking), I've come up with a few new resolutions this year. I want to continue to grow more of my own veggies. It's been great to pop out the front door and pick lettuce,  tomatoes and fresh herbs. Now I know what I'm doing, I want to expand my horizons and grow different varieties of veggies.



Also, I want to purchase more cruelty free products. Whitesnake and I started buying free range eggs last year instead of caged hens eggs. They are more expensive but taste so much better. We'll continue with this and buy more free range food when we can.

Last month, after watching the beagle freedom project on utube,  I did some research on products that are tested on animals. I went through our cupboards and was shocked by the amount of products we had purchased that are tested on animals. Since then, I've been keeping an eye out for products that are not tested on animals. I'll continue to do this and replace as many brands as I can with cruelty free products. I'd like to do more but I guess every little we can do helps.

That reminds me of something which happened the other day. One of my facebook friends was having a go at us meat eaters, saying if we really loved animals, we wouldn't eat meat. I don't think I'd ever give up eating meat because I enjoy it so much but I don't see how that makes me hate animals. I know my friend wears makeup, takes medicine, cleans her house, washes her hair with products that are tested on animals. Just because someone doesn't eat meat, doesn't mean they love animals more than I do.  I love animals too, I just try to help them when I can, in different ways.  And, I don't have anything against people who don't eat animal products, in fact my sister is vegan and I admire her determination very much but don't preach to me about how much better you are than me just because you don't eat meat. Maybe if we all did our bit to help instead of blaming others, we could help the animals even more.

Righto, I feel much better for getting that off my chest. What are your resolutions for this year? Can you recommend any cruelty free products to me? I'm finding it especially hard to find hair care products that don't cost a fortune.  Every time I wash my hair I think of those poor bunnies having shampoo put in their eyes.


See you tomorrow
