Turn Someone into a BBQ Master
With a Gift Pack of Old Arthur’s Sauces and Rubs
www.OldArthurs.com


Spice up barbecuing with a gift pack filled with Old Arthur’s award-winning sauces and rubs. Crafted from family recipes that have been passed down for five generations, the Pit Master’s Gift Pack is the perfect gift for the grilling enthusiast in your family.

The gift pack contains two bottles of Old Arthur’s Original Barbeque Sauce and one bottle of Hot & Spicy Sauce, plus six signature dry rubs: Smokestack, Righteous Poultry, Stockyard Steak, Gold Dust, Bootleg and Crossroads. It’s a flavorful gift that’s perfect for that hard-to-buy-for cook on your list. And it makes a great hostess gift when you’re searching for something out of the ordinary.

The Old Arthur name comes from the man who developed these unique blends of flavors, Arthur Watts, who lived to be 108. Born into slavery on a Missouri production farm in 1837, Arthur crafted his seasonings while preparing the owner’s family meals over an open pit. Following the Emancipation in 1863, Watts put his cooking skills to work earning a living catering social functions for churches and cities. His reputation as a highly-skilled pit master quickly grew, earning him work throughout central Illinois.

Although Arthur never learned to read or write, his eldest son, Eudell, wrote his recipes down so family members could pass them on to future generations. It was only recently that the family began sharing the flavors commercially—and quickly made a name for themselves.

The Pit Master’s Gift Pack features some of the best of Old Arthur’s flavorful blends. It’s a perfect starter kit for a beginning cook, but even an accomplished BBQ chef will appreciate its smartly crafted blends.

The Pit Master’s Gift Pack, $45, is available through Amazon and online at www.OldArthurs.com

Here’s a gift that help us help ourselves, the environment and just feel good. It makes a great gift for oneself or others!

The fashion industry has been responsible for more carbon emissions than international shipping and flights combined and labor practices can be questionable.
Meet Stephanie Wagner, an entrepreneur who is changing all that—beginning with what has become a ‘new fashion essential,’ the facemask. Her company, ForTheFeel, is making great strides in personal and shared safety.
What many don’t know is that disposable surgical masks are jammed packed with toxic chemicals that studies have shown to be harmful to our environment AND human health. Masks can have ingredients such as:
● Petroleum
● Formaldehyde
● Azo Dyes
● Heavy Metals
● Plastic
● Ammonium Compounds
● Urea Resins
● Formaldehyde
● Phenols
● Quaternary Ammonium Compounds
● Organo-silver
….. and more
These chemicals are sitting square over one’s nose and mouth—being breathed in. Unlike the nutrition facts on the back of our favorite foods, clothing and face masks don’t come with a conveniently itemized list of ingredients. Add to that that disposable masks can take up to 450 years to break down in the environment, and is affecting wildlife when they get caught in the ear loops. Synthetic particles don’t biodegrade. So when clothes are dumped into a landfill, toxic synthetic fibers pollute water sources and soil. Plus, ⅔ of all clothing sold in the U.S. is made from Fossil Fuels.
The solution: ForTheFeel. Masks that FEEL good to both people and our planet. Their plant-based masks are made with 100% ORGANIC DYES–SAFE for all and are super soft and breathable. The masks are breathable and make it much easier to wear in comfort and without causing ‘maskne.’ The materials decompose in less than a year if discarded, and they are CDC approved and worn by doctors in one of the nation’s largest healthcare systems.
ForTheFeel masks are made in America. All workers who are involved in the production (cutting, sewing, and dying) of ForTheFeel masks are paid 37% above the living wage, never handle toxic chemicals, and are treated with the utmost respect (especially during times of COVID).
For further information and/or to purchase facemasks, log into forthefeel.com.

31st State, the only vegan, more natural product range developed specifically for Gen Z guys 31st-state.com

78% of families worry they won’t be able to afford making family memories

1. Current economic pressures mean average family brings in £396 less per month
2. Treasured family moments stack up to £2,327 a year
3. To mark return of Asda’s iconic ‘Pocket Tap’ ad celebrating ‘Asda Price’, Asda teams up with money saving experts for ‘Tap Tap Talks’ series, helping families save for the moments that matter most

Following a turbulent few months, family time has never been more valuable to Brits, however it comes with a price tag. New research* by Asda shows the annual cost of treasured family moments – such as kids parties and days out – stacks up to £2,327 a year.
However, 4 in 5 (78%) Brits are worried they won’t be able to afford this with current economic pressures seeing the average family bringing in £396 less per month.

The research – marking the return of Asda’s iconic ‘Pocket Tap’ ad celebrating ‘Asda Price’ – reveals that weekend activities take their financial toll. Favourite family days out in memory-making places like the zoo and theme parks cost on average £185 per visit (for a family of 4).

Celebrations and festivities all add up as well. Bouncy castles, face painting, clowns and magicians mean the average family spends £404 per year throwing kid’s Birthday parties, with 2% spending up to £1,000. And the expense doesn’t stop with your own kids, birthday gifts for other kids’ parties add up to on average £178 per year.

The cost of going back to school is another worry for parents. Many mums and dads are glad to see their children in the classroom again, but financial pressures are a constant concern. The mounting cost of uniforms, backpacks, books, technology and lunch boxes mean the average cost of sending one child back to school is £226, increasing to £452 for two kids and £678 for three.
To help families save and find more ways to make special memories together, Asda has teamed up with money saving experts – including Emmanuel Asuquo – to launch a series of ‘Tap Tap Talks’. With family incomes declining due to COVID-19, Tap Tap Talks will give hints and tips to save money – leaving more of the monthly budget for the moments that matter most.

Emmanuel, comments: “During these times of uncertainty, there is so much value in time spent together as a family making special memories, but this doesn’t always come cheap. I have teamed up with Asda to share my money saving tips for families to help cut costs so they can save for the moments that really matter. Making changes like selling unused items online, creating budgets with your children, and opting for own brand goods if they are cheaper, plus many more, means families can make their budgets stretch further to focus on what they value most.”

An Asda spokesperson, comments: “We know that saving money is more important than ever for our customers. This September Asda has brought back the famous pocket tap through the ‘Asda Price’ campaign, launching Asda’s great big rollback event – featuring a £100m investment to lower prices on thousands of own label and branded products across food, baby and toys.

“To help families get even more value, we’re launching a series of ‘Tap Tap Talks’ partnering with a selection of experts, including TV’s Emmanuel Asuquo, to share tips and tricks over September and October. Like many of our customers, Emmanuel is a busy parent of four, so knows family life only too well and can provide helpful advice from his own experiences to help others. The current climate means many families across the country will be making cutbacks, but with great value and deals on offer, Asda customers won’t have to compromise on having those valued family moments.”
Top ten money saving tips from Emmanuel Asuquo to help families afford making memories together:

1. Opt for own brand in the supermarket if it’s cheaper than the alternative
2. Packed Lunches vs School meals
3. Make the household shopping budget a family project
4. Sell unwanted items online
5. Rent out things you’re not using
6. Switching your Gas & Electricity suppliers annually
7. Check mobile phone contracts
8. Consider a Staycation in 2021
9. Utilise your savings allowance
10. The 48-hour rule

In celebration of bringing its famous pocket tap back to screens, throughout September and October, Asda will launch a series of ‘Tap Tap Talks’, designed to arm the nation with money-saving hacks, tips and tricks in collaboration with experts across food and home. Posted on Asda social channels, Brits will be able to follow guidance to help stretch their budget, save, and spend on moments they value.

Customers can watch the ‘Tap Tap Talks’ by following @Asda on Instagram. To explore the thousands of deals on offer at Asda and to save on the weekly shop, visit in store or go to asda.com.

Five nutrition tips for rugby players
Louise Sutton, Head of Sport and Exercise Nutrition at the Carnegie School of Sports, Leeds Beckett University provides the top 5 nutrition tips every rugby player should follow:
1. Rethink your protein intake
Before reaching for supplements, rethink your protein intake. It’s important to spread out protein foods over the day in meals and snacks, rather than ‘back-end’ protein intakes in large amounts during your evening meal. Incorporate a protein-rich bedtime snack too, as consuming protein in smaller quantities more frequently is likely to be more effective.
2. Keep on top of day-to-day nutrition
Remember to optimise hydration and eat well throughout the week to maintain glycogen (energy) stores. Recovery from training is equally, if not more, important than recovery from matches.
3. Pre-match preparation
Ideally aim for a pre-match meal that is light, high in carbohydrate, and contains a small amount of protein – consume this 3-4 hour prior to kick off. Suitable choices include pasta with fish or chicken and tomato sauce, chicken stir fry with rice, sandwiches, or baked potatoes with low fat fillings. This can be topped up 1-2 hours prior to kick off, with a carbohydrate-rich snack such as a banana or dried fruit.
4. Capitalise on breaks in play and half-time
Breaks in play for kicking and injury time provide opportunities to consume drinks to top up both fluid and carbohydrate whilst on the pitch. At the half-time interval, choices such as fruit, carbohydrate gels, and simple carbohydrate foods like sweets and sports drinks, are suitable for topping up your fuel stores.
5. Don’t use supplements as a replacement for food
Registered sports dietitians and nutritionists will always promote a ‘food first’ approach to meeting nutritional needs. Although there may be times where supplements can assist recovery, it is always best to choose a healthy, balanced diet.

FOLLOW FUCKING ORDERS
The Gangland Execution of a Swedish Football Star
By Ann TÖrnkvist

Paperback: 352 pages Publisher: Pitch Publishing Ltd
ISBN-10: 1785316486 ISBN-13: 978-1785316487 RRP: £12.99

‘Let me introduce you to Sweden’s bravest journalist’ – Paul Rapacioli, author of Good Sweden, Bad Sweden

The brutal 2010 murders of promising footballer Eddie Moussa and his brother were a harbinger of the gang violence now laying siege to Sweden. Written by crime reporter Ann TÖrnkvist, Follow Fucking Orders captures the freefall of a quaint town, known for its sports-crazed community and top-league football team, into a bloody turf war.

After the biggest police investigation into organised crime in Swedish history, the local mob boss was sentenced to life for ordering the hit on Eddie. Author Ann TÖrnkvist followed the gripping story for five years, securing unique access to families who had fled into the witness protection programme.

In 2016, the mob boss tried to derail this book’s publication by threatening to have her killed. Undeterred, TÖrnkvist published Follow Fucking Orders in Sweden in 2018. The first edition sold out within a week and soon became the most popular library book in the country’s maximum-security prisons. Ultimately, the book offers a grim reminder that true crime has no last chapter.

Follow Fucking Orders is a chilling and compelling true-life tale – a book a Swedish mob boss tried to stop being published.
• A fast and furious tale about the bloodiest mafia turf war in Swedish history, which left a town and its football club in mourning
• A piece of classic narrative nonfiction where the writer grabs you by the hand to guide you through the story
• The best-loved true crime book among Sweden’s most brutal criminals
• The page-turning finale reveals the death threat that almost derailed the book’s publication
• Armed officers from the Stockholm police’s personal-protection unit accompany Ann when she gives lectures and book talks
Swedish reporter and Glasgow University and Columbia alumna Ann TÖrnkvist has worked as a journalist for over a decade. She has covered crime for public-service radio and TV, as well as the prestigious broadsheet Svenska Dagbladet. Upon publication in Sweden, Follow Fucking Orders soon became the most popular library book in the nation’s maximum-security prisons. Courageously, she published the book despite being warned that her life was at risk

The Rise of the Wellness Staycation
Since the global pandemic has showcased the importance of mental and physical health, wellness staycation bookings have boomed, and domestic holidays are becoming the wellbeing break of choice.

With this newfound awareness for immunity and fitness, and the frequently changing travel corridors, Health and Fitness Travel, the wellness holiday specialists has already seen bookings for UK retreats increase by 18% on the same point last year. Whether it’s a healthy break to de-stress or an active holiday to boost our physical wellbeing, wellness staycations are proving to be the perfect opportunity to kickstart, or maintain a healthy lifestyle and boost our immunity, all from the comfort of our own country.
Giving your mind and body time to rejuvenate and recharge is essential in our current climate, and booking yourself a wellness holiday on home turf enables you to eat well, drink well, exercise, and indulge in immunity boosting treatments without the worries of travelling abroad. As you take time away from home to prioritise exercise, sleep, and nutrition, you’ll benefit from lower stress levels, improved resilience to stress, and boosted immunity, all of which are crucial to our recovery as a country. The UK offers some spectacular destinations, from the idyllic Yorkshire countryside to the popular British coastline, so you don’t need to travel far to boost your mental and physical health, with incredible spa, fitness, and wellness breaks right on your doorstep.
Paul Joseph, Founder of Health and Fitness Travel, says “The demand for wellness tourism has been rapidly growing since we launched Health and Fitness Travel in 2010, and with a huge demand for UK summer wellness and fitness staycations this year, and so many forward bookings for next Summer, we are now increasing our UK wellness retreats for 2021. The current pandemic has merely proven how crucial good mental and physical health is, and staycations are now the ideal opportunity to maintain wellbeing, begin a fitness journey and boost immunity, to help in the fight against future viruses.”
Although staycations appear to be the favourable option right now, the gradual relaxing of Covid-19 restrictions, and our progression towards normality, will bring with it an increase in overseas travel. Island breaks and private villas are set to become the popular choices, with plenty of space for social distancing and privacy making them the ideal Covid-friendly holiday destination. European breaks are also lined up to be a post-Covid holiday hub, with just a short flight from home to the sunshine making them the more appealing option. But, whilst we manage the uncertainty of the current situation, staycations can offer nutritional guidance, workouts, and natural therapies for a quick, stress-free escape from the mayhem.

Dorothy Lane Market’s Vera Jane’s Extra-Virgin Oil is imported directly from Italy through their friend Alessandro. Alex produces it from olive groves near the beautiful medieval town of Lucignano, in Tuscany, Italy. This oil has a nice rounded rustic flavor with a peppery tickle typically found in Tuscan oils. When the DLM owners first tasted the oil, they loved it so much they named if after their grandmother, Vera Mayne, long time matriarch of the DLM family. Oils with the same quality and profile typically cost much more, but we are able to offer this luxurious olive oil at reasonable price thanks to our direct relationships with our importer.

Dorothy Lane Market’s Aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is sourced from the Manicardi estate in Modena, Italy. It is faithfully crafted in the ancient Emilian traditions. This vinegar meets the rigorous IGP requirements. A few velvety, silky drizzles over your favorite salads, fruits, vegetables, meats or bread will have you hooked. You will start to look for endless ways to use this rich and complex vinegar. Owner, Calvin Mayne and his wife visited the Manicardi Estate a few years ago to taste various ranges of balsamic vinegars and to capture this perfect blend bearing the DLM name.

This gift pack is the perfect gift to impress the most discerning foodies to the beginner home cook. This is a great option for the person who has “everything”, it’s healthy and can be enjoyed on any type of diet. Buon Appetito!
