The Italian Company Vublon has Launched their First Collection of Watches Inspired by Venice

Vublon Black and Gold

Vublon has launched its new watches collection inspired by Venetian gondolas and now offer them on Kickstarter with a 40% off the future retail price.

VENICE, ITALY, December 18, 2018 / — Vublon is the energy of two young friends that have an intense passion for high quality watches and the city of Venice.
By combining italian design and the true spirit of Venice the first edition of watches pairs the best of both worlds. The iconic colors of the gondolas in the middle of the canals have inspired and were captured in the design of the first collection of watches.

Every single component is hand picket and of high quality. The watch has its case in full black, with a special blue or black dial, gold color hands and hour indicator. You can choose between a leather strap or a mesh bracelet, both in full black to perfectly match the colors of the timepiece. Last but not least the back part is characterized by a steel base with a special draw that represent the city of Venice.

The newly born Italian company has already designed and prototyped the first collection, now it is ready to produce and distribute its first unique high quality and minimal design watches. This first edition serves as a basis for the long-term vision of the company, that is to create something new, never seen before, for people who like special things.

On 16th December they launched a Kickstarter campaign with the intent to raise the necessary funds to start the production and distribution of the first edition of watches that captures the true harmony of Venice. Let’s give life to this project.

Premium Porcini Mushrooms from Gourmet Living

Dried Porcini Mushrooms

Porcini Mushrooms Packaging from Gourmet Living

Fresh funghi porcini

Premium grade sliced porcini mushrooms are ideal for stews, soups and risotto. Dried porcini mushrooms will provide year-round delight to fellow gourmands

Funghi porcini make the ideal gift for "foodies." What better way to celebrate the holidays than with a great risotto made with funghi porcini?”

— Sheila May

GREENWICH, CT, UNITED STATES, December 17, 2018 / — With Christmas just around the corner, most everyone is looking for "stocking-stuffers." What better way to usher in the holidays than with sliced porcini mushrooms from Gourmet Living? Its premium-grade sliced funghi porcini and sold in an elegant 50-gram bag.

As most experienced buyers are aware, it is next to impossible to source Italian porcini mushrooms in sufficient commercial quantities to import into the United States. For that reason, fresh porcini are sourced from growers in Bulgaria and then dehydrated and sliced by experienced craftspeople in Tuscany, Italy. Gourmet Living takes care to insure that only the finest porcini slices are packaged for sale to consumers in the United States

Until the end of this month, buyers can purchase Gourmet Living's premium grade porcini mushrooms for $ 17.50. The mushrooms normally retail for $19.95. Free shipping is provided on all orders.

Porcini mushrooms are widely used in Italy to flavor risotto, stews, and soups. Porcini mushrooms are treasured by chefs around the world for their unique flavor and texture.

Says co-owner Sheila May, "I agree with Marcella Hazan that dehydrated porcini mushrooms are far more flavorful than fresh porcini. The texture is as important in my cooking as aroma. Therefore I am thrilled to use these premium grade sliced porcini in preparing stews and risotto for my Italian friends."

Funghi porcini are considered to the "crown jewel" of mushrooms. It is not surprising that fresh porcini mushrooms disappear rather quickly. In fact, it has become almost impossible to find either fresh or dried porcini in sufficient commercial quantities for export.

Most supermarkets or specialty food boutiques that sell dried porcini carry brands that consist largely of the scraps and residual cuttings of premium sliced porcini mushrooms. Distinctive sliced funghi porcini adds character to most any dish.

A porcini risotto is generally the best way to highlight the rich texture and aroma of the mushroom. Simply rehydrate the dried mushrooms in warm water and then incorporate the mushrooms and the broth into the risotto as suggested in the recipe.

If you are looking for an elegant way to express your gift-giving creativity this holiday season, funghi porcini from Gourmet Living could be the perfect gift. Need help getting started? Try this great recipe from Marcella Hazan for risotto with funghi porcini.

Gourmet Living's Extra Virgin Olive Oil from California

California extra virgin olive oil

Gourmet Living CA Extra Virgin Olive Oil

If you are looking to make a culinary statement this holiday season, Gourmet Living's extra virgin olive oil from California is a special gift.

Our California EVOO made from the Picual olive is our most popular olive oil.”

— Sheila

GREENWICH, CT, UNITED STATES, December 17, 2018 / — Gourmet Living's 2017 vintage extra virgin olive oil from California is a great gift for discerning "foodies." Harvested from the picual olive, this first-pressed EVOO is the most popular olive oil sold by Gourmet Living.

Notes Sheila May, the owner of Gourmet Living, "We are focusing our efforts to promote Californian olive oils. Sadly, consumers feel misled by large conglomerates who have deliberately misrepresented inferior oils as 'extra virgin.' California has far more stringent controls."

Extra virgin olive oil (“EVOO”) is at the heart of the Mediterranean diet and many Americans are now discovering the nutritional benefits of using olive oil in their diets. Production of olive oil in California has increased dramatically in recent years as many health-conscious Americans now substitute EVOO for butter.

The health benefits of using extra virgin olive oil remains a very controversial subject. The proponents of the benefits olive oil suggest that the regular use of olive oil can reduce heart disease and may help control diabetes. Others maintain that these “health benefits” are not supported by clinical trials. Nevertheless, both sides of the nutritional debate argue that eating fresh fruits and vegetables (commonly eaten with EVOO) are healthier than consuming factory-processed foods.

Sold in a distinctive 500ml bottle, Gourmet Living has changed both the shape of the bottle and the cap to provide buyers with a better experience. A bottle of EVOO will normally last for a year after it has been opened for the first time and stored at room temperature out of direct sunlight.

EVOO is far more labor intensive than the production of other vegetable oils. Prices for an authentic and certified 500 ml (17FL oz) bottle of EVOO can vary between $15 and $40. Not all oils labeled “extra virgin olive oil” are truly harvested and bottled under the protocols established by the International Olive Council. Good quality oils from reputable producers in Italy, Greece and Spain tend to be more expensive.

This California EVOO is ideal for salads or roasted vegetables. The picual olive has a light taste that won't overpower other flavors in one's cooking.

With free shipping, make the holiday special for those gourmands on your gift list.

Gourmet Living has made available a guide of Frequently Asked Questions about Buying Olive Oil that can be downloaded from their website.

Medicare on Video demystifies home care coverage and long term care with True Freedom premier plans.

Medicare Supplement Quotes

Keith Armbrecht

Online Medicare Resource Center

Long-term home healthcare is the preferred option for many seniors. True Freedom is all about you and those comforts you want most.

With a field issue contract, no underwriting, no forms, no deductibles, no copays and no age limits or previous hospitalization, additional coverage for seniors has never been this convenient.”

— Keith Armbrecht (Founder Medicare On Video)

TREASURE ISLAND, FL, UNITED STATES, December 17, 2018 / — No one knows how to break the ice and get people talking about an uncomfortable topic such as senior care at home than Keith Ambrecht. No one really wants to think about the dynamics of senior care at home such as professional nursing, personal care and health care aide for when they might become homebound. Just the same, old age is coming and it’s a blessing to those who have a well thought out plan and doom for those who have none. For those in the planning phase, Medicare on Video will prove to be the holy grail of adequate, candid and digestible information and news on Medicare available online.

True Freedom is comprehensive new senior home care membership program from the American Senior Services Inc. which is a whole new way of looking at home care services and a better option compared to traditional home care service providers. True Freedom offers members full benefits with no underwriting whatsoever, no age limits and no questions asked. While this is not an insurance policy to take out it actually goes along well with long term care insurance providing additional cushion.

“On my journeys I have met people and I have been introduced to services, and there are some services out there that have not gotten the attention they deserve. Specifically, I would like to bring your attention to a product called True Freedom…. I have first-hand knowledge of this product. ASSI have been in business since two thousand and eight and they are a viable alternative to traditional homecare services,” says Dr. Marion Somers a renowned Elder Care Expert.
Traditionally, obtaining additional cover for the elderly persons has been the spelling of a nightmare for primary caregivers while that doesn’t seem to stop the doctor from prescribing even more specialized care and treatment. Senior care at home has been obscenely expensive and with fewer benefits than its alternatives. Inflation has not helped with the value of benefits dwindling as living expenses skyrocket. Age limits and restrictions such as impossible to meet qualification requirements have all made such contracts null and void.

As for Medicare, it only covers most of the basics and part of specialized health care needs prescribed to most seniors and exactly none of the ones that we all eventually need. Meals, personal care and homemaker service are all the things that we need happening in our homes to lead happier lives at a ripe old age. These “gaps” in Medicare coverage are best filled with supplementary coverage as that which a True Freedom membership provides. No one wants to imagine themselves not being in a position to toilet, clothe and wash themselves but it is a harsh reality we have to brace for. Being ready means not being a burden or bother to those we love and having an easier time adjusting.

Looking at the current requirements for qualifications for Medicare basic home care it is pretty obvious that it is neither easy to obtain, nor comprehensive cover. Given all the restrictions and how much your getting enrolled depends on being completely incapacitated, it is hard to visualize how basic insurance can contribute to happiness and fulfilment at old age. Not to mention the tons of paperwork that is involved in getting Medicare to pay for benefits seniors enjoy.

The official Medicare website issues a note to its readers that the doctors may prescribe some additional care that is not covered and that this might have to be out of pocket. They clearly forget to mention the personal care bit which might not be prescribed by a doctor but one that seniors cannot live happily without.

Home health care coverage and long term elder care is something we all need to think about. Eventually, most of us will need some extra coverage that may not be included in basic traditional coverage. People already in their sixties and seventies or coming of that age need a suitable guide to navigate the various hoops of Medicare and for most people, nothing works better than a visual aid. Medicare no video has been an invaluable resource for most seniors providing the most recent information for better choices on Medicare supplementary coverage.

Among the key benefits of choosing True Freedom is that users get to save money on premium coverage and also in the way of discount rewards. That’s five percent off for annual payments alone and ten percent if you pay as a couple. Couples paying annually will get a staggering fifteen percent discount on their premium which is pretty generous a reward. Additionally, members get a 10% discount on premiums for every successive year that they do not use their cover for up to four years and a total discount of 40%.

True Freedom subscribers will now enjoy freedom from inflation since the hours purchased can be utilized years down the line and they will still be worth one hour as time is constant. There are platinum, gold, silver and bronze plans ranging between 1500 hours and 10000 hours. So what happens when you run through your entire first 1000 hours of a platinum plan? Well, there is a 90 day window in between then your hours rejuvenate and suddenly you have yet another 1000 hours of service and care to enjoy.

Just thinking about the obstacles to health and happiness that lie ahead due to old age can be nerve wrecking. That goes a long way to explain why most adults do not have supplementary coverage for elder care even though statically three out of every four adults will need home care due to illness or incapacitation related to old age. At this point, it is possible to feel rejected as no insurer wants to underwrite and relying on family members is being a burden to society. And while senior care can run obscenely expensive, True Freedom provides one of the best alternatives to traditional health insurance and supplementary coverage available on the market today.

Old Mill District Winter Artwork Created by Local Artist, Susan Luckey Higdon

Winter artwork by Susan Luckey Higdon for Bend Oregon’s Old Mill District

Central Oregon artist and founding member at Tumalo Art Coy creates piece to celebrate the season

I loved combining all the pieces of this painting together into a celebration of the beautiful winter season in Central Oregon. It was an honor to create this annual piece for the Old Mill District.”

— Susan Luckey Higdon

BEND, OR, USA, December 13, 2018 / — The Old Mill District commissioned local artist Susan Luckey Higdon to create its 2018 “winter art” piece, which is featured on the district’s banners, winter guide, kiosks, marketing campaigns and annual holiday collectible ornaments. Higdon created the original piece with acrylic on canvas, seeking to capture the crisp blue of winter sky contrasted with the red berries on the area’s mountain ash trees. In addition, she wanted to illustrate animal or bird life, all combined with her unique perspective.

“It was challenging to capture all the elements I wanted to display in this piece – sky, snow, perspective and birds,” said Higdon. “I like to narrow in on the composition in a way that is unexpected and somewhat abstracted, so I approached it with this mindset. I loved combining all the pieces of this painting together into a celebration of the beautiful winter season in Central Oregon. It was an honor to create this annual piece for the Old Mill District.”

The finished piece shows an expanse of blue Central Oregon sky in which the Old Mill District’s three iconic smoke stacks rise in the background. In the forefront is a snow covered mountain ash tree loaded with berries and providing temporary cover to three brightly colored waxwings, which are commonly seen in the area during the season. In all, it captures the essence of winter in the region. The finished piece is on display at Tumalo Art Co. until January 7. A limited supply of the signature glass ornaments are on sale at the gallery and SantaLand.

Susan Luckey Higdon is known for her landscapes of iconic Central Oregon scenes, especially water, fish and birds in their natural habitat. She is drawn to unusual and dramatic composition, pattern and color. Her work has been featured in Italian fly fishing magazine H2O, Bend Magazine and on Oregon Art Beat. Her paintings are in corporate and private art collections across the country. Susan is a founding member of Tumalo Art Company a collective gallery in the Old Mill District, and has been the signature artist for Deschutes River Conservancy’s RiverFeast event for 11 years. More about her work can be found at
