I tuned in to the season SIX premier of The Walking Dead, last night, and I have to say that I was not entirely impressed.
I didn't completely dislike the episode, but for a season opener I just felt a little slighted. It was far too slow for me and it seemed to rug sweep a lot of things under the carpet that were up in the air at the end of season 5.
I don't want to give anything away, so I will just say that I know it was lagging because 23 minutes in I had looked at my clock to see what the time was. Another 25 minutes later and my interest was there, but it wasn't really peaked and, then, by the end, I did not at all feel that sense of urgency in the pit of my gut, that you would really expect to get with that situation, because really I wasn't drawn into it, it was almost an aside with all the back and forths trying to muddle the past and present together.
I do love that some of my favourites are still with us, I like the way they are taking some of the characters, but I am pretty sure that at least 2 of them have been marked for death this season just based on their attitudes in this episode.
I will say now that by the time Season 6 comes to a close, and maybe even by the mid-season finale, we will likely have said goodbye to Sasha or, dare I say it...Glenn!
I will be happily wrong.
I give this opener 7 out of ten, 5 of which relies solely on Tara's remark to Eugene at her bedside, while the other 2 are for effort, but with no emotional connection or feeling, for me, personally.
Barely any answers and not nearly enough questions, but still worth a look. It really couldn't ever have beat out season 5's opener from last year but it gave it a shot (or a slight tap).

Every year, around this time, we attend a Peace March and get together, which is a great way to spread a positive message to the community and to also unwind and have a great day with friends and family.
Every year there is a "free shop", which allows people to donate goods or receive goods, too! I always take over the clothes from my children from the past year and this year is going to be no exception! Today, Bronson and I spent a couple of hours going through SO MANY clothes from everyone in our household and have bags and bags for donations from coats to covers and back again!
We also sorted out a couple of bags for the local church, too, as they are having a donations collection and distribution in the coming weeks, too! All in all, we ended up with about 6 full bags of clothes, shoes and accessories, with blankets and coats as well!
I am very please with my little minion for helping me out, today AND for the incredible amount of space this frees up to fill over the next year! I hope someone, somewhere can benefit from the things we've donated, and who knows, maybe we'll find a treasure of our own!
Have a wonderful weekend, wherever it takes you!

Eczema is a chronic disease often affecting children. It is caused due to various environmental and genetic factors. Medical professionals are still not quite sure what causes it but as it is with many other conditions, hereditary factor plays an important role. Besides dry skin, atopic dermatitis is also followed by appearance of eczema which is characterized by red, dry and scaly patches of skin that are enormously itchy. This illness affects 10 to 15 percent of babies.
Like many other allergic illnesses, atopic dermatitis is constantly on the rise. It is very common for developed and urban environments. You! Drugstore team believes that changes in our environment are the most likely cause for this. Some of the children will also suffer from other allergic diseases such as asthma. In some cases, irritant that is causing eczema will lead to development of other conditions at the same time. When it comes to babies, common symptoms of eczema are wet and yellow patches of skin appearing on top of the head, cheeks and bottom. Older children are experiencing a bit different issues such as dry skin that is scaling as well as thick, uneven and dry skin. Buy Betaderm online to treat all of these problems.
Have in mind that this disease can come in various forms. We can differentiate:
- Contact dermatitis (caused through direct contact with various irritants in our midst)
- Photodermatitis (common for individuals sensitive to light)
- Seborrheic dermatitis (caused by fungus Malassezia)
- Neurodermatitis (affects nerve ending bellow skin)
As a primary treatment, doctors will recommend avoiding problematic substances. Have in mind that contact dermatitis is the most common form. Because of this, patient will need to determine what causes the problem. After identifying the culprit, it is possible to avoid that matter. Unfortunately, certain substances are really common for our environment. This makes treatment that much harder to perform.
Besides avoiding allergens, patient can change his diet. It has been discovered that large quantities of vitamins A, C and E as well as zinc and Omega-3 acids, can have enormous effect on treatment of the patient. Mild cosmetic products (preferable natural ones) should be used for bathing the baby. Most of the chemicals used in cosmetic industry and for cleaning products can prove to be enormously strong for infants. As such, they can lead to severe dermal reaction.
Many parents prefer using medicines to treat this issue. Have in mind that Betaderm has provided excellent results when it comes to treating symptoms of dermatitis like redness, itching and swelling. Medicine is used for skin, it comes in a form of a cream and it is a corticosteroid. Entire treatment lasts for up to two weeks. If the baby doesn’t show progress by that time, it is necessary to consult the doctor. Cream is used 1 to 3 times per day. It shouldn’t be put on face, groin or underarms. When used around diaper area, it shouldn’t be tightened or covered by artificial materials. Furthermore, if baby has skin issues, it is best if you use cotton diapers.
