What Is The Secret To Happiness?

I was reading a blog about happiness and was moved by some of the quotes. And so my gift today is to share. Enjoy..

Smile and be happy

Smile and be happy

“Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.” H.  Jackson Brown, Jr.

“Happiness is like a kiss. You must share it to enjoy it.” – Bernard Meltzer

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” – Dalai Lama

So the secret to happiness is there is no secret. We just have to make ourselves aware of it mentally, how we program our minds, embrace happiness and give more than we take because we’re all connected.

Kind regards,
Anne from Gift Of The Month Clubs

American Sniper. Great Film or Propaganda

We checked out the American Sniper for the Movie Of The Month Club over the weekend with little knowledge about the story and can report we didn’t leave disappointed.

American Sniper

American Sniper

Bradley Cooper plays the starring role as ex Navy Seal Chris Kyle. Sienna Miller co starred as his wife and the film was directed by Clint Eastwood.

The story of Chris Kyle was that he became known as “the legend” for his service to his country during the Iraq war over four different tours of duty. And Bradley Cooper brought a real and convincing performance to the role.

It seemed like a real enactment of what it must have been like and was based on a true story. But critics are calling it propaganda for the United States military and we felt this at stages throughout the film with America being shown as the good guys and the enemy the bad.

But our review remains the same. Because it was  a great, great film that kept us glued to the screen from the start to the finish. A must see type of film that is now the highest grossing war movie in box office history that will surely move Bradley Cooper to the top of Hollywood’s leading men.

“Off The Menu” Rye Ale Selected For The Beer Of The Month Club

Every month we select a new beer for the Beer Of The Month Club

Cracking Open an Artic Fox Rye Ale

Cracking Open an Artic Fox Rye Ale

“We always try to surprise and delight our members with a wide selection of new and hard to find craft beers.” said Rob from Gift Of The Month Clubs“So we searched for and found the “off the menu” Rye Ale beer from the Arctic Fox micro brewery for this months Beer Of The Month Club.”

The Arctic Fox micro brewery has been operating for around a decade and could mainly be found promoting their craft beer at local markets and festivals. But this is a hard way to keep a micro brewery going in terms of sales and investment dollars needed to progress in an ever growing craft beer market so the partners decided to sell. However they encountered a few failed sale attempts with various buyers pulling out but was eventually bought by the Blood Brothers Brewery.

Dave Kepper took over as the manager of the Arctic Fox with years of brewing and liquor retailing experience behind him. “I’ve been managing the Arctic Fox since about 2008 but was involved in brewing and liquor sales for years before that”, said Dave.

Arctic Fox is an independent and authentic micro brewery located in the outer Melbourne suburb of Dandenong and are extremely passionate about making full flavored naturally brewed beer without preservatives. “We’re doing some great things at Arctic Fox and having a lot of fun making sure they’re all award winning standard”, said Dave with a smile while talking about their brewing process for the Rye Ale.

“Our Rye Ale uses up to 30% Rye which is pretty high and the grain gives a bitterness and spice we have to be careful with. Plus it’s got a citras nose and front pallet from sitting on Mandarin and Orange rinds which makes it a refreshing easy beer to drink.”

The Rye Ale isn’t on the Arctic Fox product list which makes it even more special for the Beer Of The Month Club members. “We’re like the television show where the guy finds off the menu specialty meals only the locals know about, except we do it with beer,” said Rob.

“This averages out to approximately $86 per person spent on Valentines Day per person with luxury gifts bringing the overall average up considering lots of people only buy a card or something pretty simple,” said Sam from Gift Of The Month Clubs . “Not that there’s anything wrong with that! As long as both partners are happy,” said Sam.

Who’s Counting on a Big Christmas Bonus This Year?

Every year thousands of Australians plan for a nice big Christmas bonus. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad – and sometimes it’s ugly enough to send someone over the edge!

Like the time Clark Griswold announced to his entire family he was putting in a pool with his end of year bonus money. But when he opened the company letter discovered he had been given a 12 month membership to the Jelly Of The Month Club instead! Hilarious – but cousin Eddie didn’t see anything wrong with it and said, “Clark, it’s the gift that keeps on giving the whole year”. To which Clark replied, “That it is Eddie, that it is”, followed by one of the biggest, funniest blasts in history!

Penfolds Selected for The Wine Of The Month Club

Penfolds is a famous Australian wine producer that was founded in Adelaide in 1844 by Christopher Rawson Penfold, who had migrated to Australia from England with his wife Mary Penfold.

Many of Australia’s wines have become known internationally, but with only a relatively short 200 year history are quite new compared with world wine making history dating back 7000 years across Europe, China and the Middle East. However there is no clear birthplace for winemaking recorded and is as much legend as fact in the ancient world.

In Australia, Penfolds is famous in Australia and across the world for their Grange wine along with a small selection of Penfolds wines ranging from a Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz Cabernet red wine varieties to a Chardonnay white wine.

The Penfolds winery started just eight years after the foundation of South Australia and has played a prominent role in Australian winemaking. And is another great Australian success story.
