Graham’s excellent murder mystery “The Blue Journal”; and “The Silver Ships”, author S.H.Jucha’s first science fiction novel.

One of the nicest things you can do for your body and energy level this summer is to stay well hydrated.  And that’s easy to do when your refrigerator is well stocked with chilled bottles of  Sixteen Water, a natural volcanic mineral water found on the island of Jeju off the coast of South Korea (www.sixteenwater.com).

Sixteen tastes clean and refreshing and the slim bottles are easy to fit in the fridge, your backpack or purse. What makes this water so special is the fact that it’s been purified by passing through 16 layers of volcanic bedrock.
