 My Mission (Alicia Carr)

One of my life’s goal and mission is to EMPOWER women. I have learned that we are the same with our struggles and I don’t want to see color. I see women, and women all over the world are going through problems they shouldn’t have to whether its in tech or through life.  I also see, as people, as women, we are one. When women struggle, we all struggle.

Today I get into a product I felt I needed, to track my sleep habits as well as incorporate comfort and warmth when I sleep.  The Eight Sleep tracker is a mattress cover that tracks the whole bad (two sides to accommodate two people) sleep patterns (awake, lite sleep, deep sleep Rem sleep) into an app that has great summaries and detail to improve your sleep.  It also is a comfortable mattress pad with a heater incorporated.  Here's my review because I had to order a new one.

We close this week out with two very well developed releases by Jay Rock (Redemption) and ASAP Rocky (Testing).  So unique in their way that we left them for last so we would be able to spend the time to highlight and showcase their talent.  Very good listen.

I sit down today with my Grandson Marsalis after we both watched the 2nd season of Lemony Snicket "A series of unfortunate events" series on Netflix.  He was so excited by it , that I decided to bring this 9 year olds perspective of what he saw and go over the series 1 and 2 from a childs perspective.  I enjoyed this interaction, Hope you will too.

Grown on a mountainside vineyard overlooking South Africa’s beautiful False Bay, 2016 Vinum Reserve Syrah is made from hand-picked grapes. Pour a glass of this subtle and refined red and enjoy notes of ripe red fruit and spice, with a savory tone and grippy tannins that make it the right pairing for rich meat dishes
