iThinkMedia & Other Things

Yes, I’m going to take a moment to talk about other things on the site instea11002779_10205990473299606_1561424765_od of staying on track. Today I wanted to share my favorite tea with you. Its Lipton’s Vanilla Caramel Truffle.

I don’t drink coffee but I find myself craving a cup of this tea in the morning. And most of you don’t know but I stopped drinking soda over 3 years ago. I can say giving up diet soda was one of the best food/drink choices I’ve ever made in my life. I do however, still drink unsweetened tea, sparkling water and plain water with lemon.

So as my eating/drinking habits have changed and my cravings have changed too.

About 10 months ago I gave up refined sugar which was the second best thing I ever did with respect to food. I will go into that more later — but wanted to share my favorite tea and see what everyone else likes.

History Channel: The Men Who Built America

I love learning more about history and recently found a great History Channel series on Netflix that gave me a new perspective on our countries first tycoons at the beginning of the industrialized age; Cornelius Vanderbilt, John D. Rockefeller, Carnegie,  J.P. Morgan and Henry Ford.

What is unique about the movie is their use of archival footage and interviews with historians and current moguls. It gives you a clear picture and understanding of the men who helped create modern day capitalism.

You can watch all four episodes on Netflix and you might want to watch them twice just to make sure you get all the facts straight.
