Juliet Immortal Completed

Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay
320 pages
Delacrote Books for Young Readers
Age: 14 & up

Overview:

The most tragic love story in history . . .

Juliet Capulet didn’t take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But what Romeo didn’t anticipate was that Juliet would be granted eternity, as well, and would become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light. For 700 years, she’s fought Romeo for the souls of true lovers, struggling to preserve romantic love and the lives of the innocent. Until the day she meets someone she’s forbidden to love, and Romeo, oh Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy that love.

My Take:
This book unique twist to an old story. At first I thought this was going to be a light and cute read.  Well I was wrong, this story was action, romance, supernatural and adventure!  The story unfolded  leaving myself getting caught up in the twists and turns of what Juliet and Romeo were going through.  Each page filled with action, left me wanting to know what was going to happen next.  Was love going to win?  Was someone going to die?  Was Romeo and Juliet to be together again in their own bodies?

Romeo jumps into the body of Dylan who has plans that go awry. Romeo seems to taunt and want Juliet at the same time since he is the villain.  Juliet jumps into the body of Ariel and gets herself thrown into a whirlwind of emotions.  It seems Juliet/Ariel finds romance, friendship and family during her time in Ariel’s body.  Juliet always seems to turn Romeo down with truth and honesty.

The ending was perfect and there were no cliff hangers at all.  The whole story had a strong sense on the matter of love.

Drive thru Restaurants and being Deaf

 

So a friend of mine suggested someone named Patrick Hughes from Inclusion Solutions..as my friend had him visit her school.  So I looked it up online and came across this while browsing through the website:

http://www.inclusionsolutions.com/orderassist.html

 

Well..that’s kind of neat. I know McDonalds as a screen that you can view the order..why not have a touch screen for deaf people to use to order if they can’t verbally speak into the speakers?  The technology is out there for that, isn’t it?

I hate going through the drive thru because I can’t really understand the speaker when they ask questions.  It’s a voice that I”m not used to hearing and then with the car running making extra noises, makes it a tad hard at times.  I can order the food and all that, no problem there!

 

Found an article regarding to the Order Assist:

Turkey Meatloaf

 

Last night I whipped up a turkey meatloaf in the oven with the ingredients of:

Ground Turkey
Shredded Cheese
Salt/Pepper
Green Onions
Worchester Sauce
Chicken Stock

I added all 5 ingredients together and then put chicken stock in the bottom of the pan that I cooked the ground turkey in at 350 for 1 hour.  It was a little dry but good.  If I were to do it again, I’d cover the pan so it wouldn’t get so dry and probably add more cheese and all.  Hubby and I ate it since we were hungry!   The youngest kid ate a few bites of it at least and the oldest one had 1 bite.
