The Best Castle For Little People Is One That Uses Little People

Sun, 23 Dec 2012 15:15:50 GMT

For whatever reason, little kids love playing with castles. It's a wonderful fantasy world populated with knights in shining armor and dragons to slay or play with. The Fisher Price Little People Castle makes this play wonderful and fun for even the smallest hands.

What I like about the Play N Go Castle is that there's plenty to do, but not so much that small children become overwhelmed with the possibilities. It's simple and entertaining at the same time.

The working drawbridge and catapult are the big draws here. And with just those items, the canon, the knight with a shield, and the dragon are enough to keep him busy and entertained for hours at a time. There are so many stories that can be created with just these few items. And when he's done, he can easily carry it with him to the next location since it only weighs about 2 pounds.

If he's anything like my son he may even carry it to bed with him.

Notice how I keep referring to the child here as a "he". That's naturally because the child in my family that plays with it is a boy.

But girls love to play with castles too. Fisher Price knows this and as a result they have made a pink castle as well. It's basically the same toy with the same pieces, just a different color.

And you're not limited to the pieces that come with the set. And of the Little People line will work well. Your young lady for instance will probably like the Little People Disney Princess set to play with in the castle as well. As you'll probably find many of the other toys you have laying around the house inside this castle sooner or later. There's just so many ways for children to create with it.

If you have a small child, this is one toy you really need to see. Just check out my new Squidoo lens and you'll quickly see why I like this one so much. And why my grand son likes it too. And since it's from Fisher Price, you know it's something that will last until he or she finally outgrows it.

I Was Looking For A Changing Table And Discovered A Badger Basket

Fri, 14 Dec 2012 15:40:07 GMT

Every new mom and dad needs a changing table. And with two grand kids on the way we decided to go searching for one to help out the new moms to be in our family. We finally settled on a Badger Basket changing table.

There are several reasons we made this choice.

First of all, these are sturdy pieces of furniture. That obviously is a very important factor.

But second we loved the way they looked and the options that were available.

First of all, the color choices allowed us to find the perfect one for each mother. The choices included black, brown, a honey color and white.

Second were the styles. There was the modern which was basically just straight lines. We didn't like this one as much. But there was also the sleigh which is really nice looking. And finally there is the corner changing table which is a real space saver for a small nursery.

Third, you could get them with basket, no baskets, or fewer baskets (they function as drawers) and a large hamper.

Basically it's a mix and match scenario until you find the changing table that best suits your needs.

If you want to see everything that's available you can check out the new Squidoo lens I put up on the topic. Check it out at the links below.

Time To Invest In A Chicco Playard

Thu, 13 Dec 2012 15:58:27 GMT

So I'm shopping for my grandchildren the other day and I come across a Chicco Lullaby LX Playard. I had never heard of Chicco before (I'm told it's pronounced KEE-koh) but this thing really impressed me. Neither of my expectant daughters have asked me for one of these, but I think I'm going to get it anyway.

I was really impressed.

It's really everything rolled into one.

It's a playpen. It's a bassinet. It's a changing table. It's an exercise gym.

It plays music and has a light. It even vibrates to help soothe the baby. And the mom or day can control all of this with a remote control.

If the baby starts to fuss a little in the night, just press a button on the remote to turn on the music, or vibration, or both. It just might help him or her go right back to sleep so parents can do the same.

You really should check it out.

Naturally I was so impressed I decided to put up a Squidoo lens to let you and other web surfers know just what this playard is all about. Be sure to check it out. Especially if you or someone you know has a little one, or one on the way.

Time To Start Buying Baby Stuff Again

Tue, 11 Dec 2012 15:38:37 GMT

With grandkids numbers 6 and 7 on the way it will be easy to buy Christmas gifts this year for the expectant moms. There's so much to choose from and they have specific items they know they'll need.

The one thing both moms say they want is a baby carrier and sling.

I actually think this is pretty cool.

As a parent in my youth I hated pushing a stroller around or dragging the little ones in a wagon. My wife way back when decided to get a sling. You know, one of those things I associated with women in third world countries.

It was wonderful. It made carrying the kids easy and they loved the comfort of being wrapped up next to her or my chest.

So you can imagine my shock when I started shopping online at the huge variety of options available today. As a result, I decided to write about it to help other moms and moms to be learn more about this wonderful item. I hope it helps you too.

A PSE Crossbow - My Christmas Wish

Fri, 30 Nov 2012 19:02:22 GMT

What do I want for Christmas? My wife asks me that every year, and every year I say the same thing. I don't really want or need anything I tell her. I say whatever you want to get will be great I'm sure.

So this year she was a little surprised when I actually gave her an answer. "I want a new PSE crossbow" I said.

How did I arrive at this decision?

Well I love to hunt, and I've needed a new crossbow for some time now. So I did some research. Most crossbow makers get good reviews. It seems like they pretty much all take the time and effort to put out a quality product. It just seemed to me like PSE did a little more for the price.

Then I found this video where a guy puts the arrow dead center in what looks to be a 1 inch circle...FROM 100 YARDS AWAY.

I'm sold.

You can check out the video and a lot more information on this crossbow at the links below. If you're a crossbow hunter like me, I'm sure you'll be impressed with what you see.

My Wife's Biosilk Flat Iron

Wed, 28 Nov 2012 18:12:54 GMT

OK, I'm on kind of a roll here. Two posts in two days. Both on the same subject no less.

Yesterday I talked about how my wife decided to go with a less expensive flat iron since she goes through them like kids go through candy. As a woman is allowed to do and frequently does, she changed her mind.

Don't get me wrong, she still loves the Corioliss, but then she read about a Biosilk flat iron, and naturally, she had to try it out.

She likes the new one better.

She wanted me to tell everyone that the Corioliss is still a great flat iron, and she's still going to use it. But on those special occasions when she wants really soft and shiny hair, (which I presume will be most days) she will be using the Biosilk. It doesn't do a better job of straightening she says. Actually, they're equal. She just likes the way this one makes her hair feel when she's done.

And as I typically do, when we try something new I go out and make a Squidoo lens about it. Good or bad.

So here it is.

Check Out My Wife's New Corioliss Flat Iron

Tue, 27 Nov 2012 15:58:43 GMT

Been a while since I posted anything here but thought now would be a good time to tell you about something. I haven't seen my wife this excited since... well I can't remember when.

What's the reason for all this sudden joy in our house? She just bought a new Corioliss flat iron LOL.

When you hair is almost gone like mine, this isn't exactly something to get thrilled over. But she just loves this thing. And believe me when I say she's tried a lot of flat irons over the years.

She likes this one better than her expensive CHI, and every other brand of flat iron that's long since been tucked away in a box in the back of the closet or thrown into the backyard dumpster.

She told me to let everyone know that if you haven't tried a Corioliss then you are missing something special.

Consider yourself told.

Here's what she is talking about.

The History Of The Air Hockey Game

Tue, 09 Aug 2011 18:04:03 GMT

The air hockey table game you know and love nowadays was created in 1969 by a selection of Brunswick engineers of Brunswick Billiards. It was originally drawn up for commercial launch, but put aside. Many years following the construction of the earliest ideas, the engineers built the actual air hockey game, together with mallets along with disks.

The contest was at first played out on a table, utilizing a disk as well as squared mallets. The contest is currently set up employing round mallets. The table is designed to be a table that delivers a smooth surface that results in zero friction. Typically, the air hockey game surface area is filled with countless miniature holes, wherein a stable flow of gentle air is pumped. The puck then simply slides on the cushion of air right above the table’s surface area. A couple of air hockey game surface areas are just flat surface areas without any openings, and the air is produced by a battery-operated air hockey game puck which creates its own cushion of air. It ought to be noted that these are not regulation or approved for use in every United States Air Hockey Association-approved events, games or tournaments.

The air hockey game rose to fame in the 1970’s, as an arcade toy sensation, a college dormitory rec room device and as an amateur sports activity with tournament play. Competition play started off during the early 1980’s in Houston, Tx with the formation of the 1st professional air hockey league, The Houston Air Hockey Association. After the organization of the Houston organization, a state-wide Texas Air Hockey Players Association shaped and produced formal rules and regulations for the game, qualifying it more as a sport. USAA-approved tables will be suited for 2 participant games only, although four-player game tables do exist for amateur and leisure use.

Contemporary rules for the game are currently determined by the United States Air Hockey Association, and will include these regulations:

1)    At the start of the game, a coin toss or face off tells the participant that will start up the game with first control of the puck in play.
2)    The first person which scores seven points has won the the match.
3)    Once the puck crosses into a player’s zone on the table when crossing the center line, that player gets anywhere up to seven seconds to return the puck to the opposing player’s zone, or otherwise has committed a foul.
4)    Other fouls include keeping down the puck with one’s mallet, touching the puck with any piece of a player’s body in addition to puck jumping out of the table altogether.

Competitive play and competitions are still set up on an international stage today, with professional competitions currently being played all over Europe and also the United States. The USAA is the one known ruling body over the game, in any region or continent, so because of this, the USAA terms apply to any and all tourneys played out throughout the world. In spite of this level of success, the air hockey game is still regarded as a leisure non-sport amongst the large majority of folks, that affiliate it with arcades and bar-play. Air hockey remains observed in scores of recreational sites and arcades, however is oftentimes over-shadowed by the existence of video gaming units.

Which Are Considered The Top Art Schools?

Mon, 08 Aug 2011 17:34:28 GMT

Evaluations are normally a challenge. Ranking the top art schools is dependent on the criteria of the one or ones carrying out the judging and perhaps whether or not they have some type of association or vested interest in placing certain schools wherever they stick them. Cronyism aside and visualizing an ideal world of absolute objectivity, a one-size-fits-all review system would unquestionably only perform the job in a world where artists are decided upfront inside a test tube and everybody is a homogenous clone. However it makes you wonder if art and creative expression can really truly be present in this sort of utopian community.

 And so, time for the present day reality, one single categorical reply to the query, “What might possibly be the top art schools?” universally does a disservice to the wants and needs of the individual learner. As with music components, it all depends completely on priority and application. The ultimate school with regard to music and performing arts will almost definitely not be the best rated school for commercial and visual arts. Even inside a singular category, the “best” art school will definitely still depend upon the needs and priorities of the student.

 There are various of groups and publications ready to give it a shot, though, and their ideas can be found easily over the web. All the same, you'll want to consider these scores only a starting point, as they can be pretty misleading. Understand that higher education is financed largely by the young people that join said facilities. No students, no institution. No institution, no over-paid teachers incapable of getting work done in the real world. (Oops. Did I declare that out loud?) And no, that most certainly won't apply to all art school faculty members.

 The first thing you ought to decide is what you intend to do with an art education. There are numerous and distinct career opportunities. The art career or occupation you'd like is without a doubt one of the more significant deciding factors in your own personal rating strategy.

 For instance, if you’re already in the art business of your choosing (or close to it) and all you would need is a piece of paper, you can generally end up with what it requires through the local community college or state university. Based on the state, that may be a less pricey method of getting that sheet of paper as compared to going to a dedicated art school.

 If, alternately, you’re gunning for a distinct perhaps prestigious job position inside a well-known art gallery, it would be beneficial to work in reverse. Learn what they consider the top art schools and which of these they oftentimes contact graduates from. Or in other words, which art school degree might get your application to the top of the bunch?

 Your selection may even come down to economics. What can you manage to pay for; what kind of financing exists; and what exactly are your odds of an inexpensive pay off?

In the end, you're the judge. You'll want to determine what the top art schools are for you personally and make the correct choice for you. In the end, individuality is the very heartbeat of art.

The Cat Wall Clock - Whimsical Decoration For Your Home

Mon, 29 Nov 2010 04:52:18 GMT

Whether you simply love kittens and cats or have an acquaintance who does, a cat wall clock is a superb gift, even when it's just to yourself.

In either case you wouldn't be by yourself. Cats are extremely popular pets and cat clocks are an incredibly popular gift all year round.  This means if you're looking for one, you'll have absolutely no trouble locating the ideal cat. The marketplace is filled with them.

Choices however can be good. This means locating the perfect cat wall clock won't be too tough.  The bad news is that a lot of the clocks available on the market are cheap or unattractive.  With so many choices, it is good to know how to find the correct cat wall clock.  Here are a few factors to think about when shopping for one of these fun pieces of decor.

Needless to say you have to look at the price.  That is always a good idea when making a purchase, but it is especially important when buying a cat wall clock.  The reason why are obvious. If you find one that's very cheap it might mean you are receiving something of poor quality. And if it costs too much you may well be exceeding your budget.  Put simply, you do not need to spend an arm and a leg to get a cat clock and you also do not want to end up the owner of a piece of junk after purchasing a clock for just a few dollars.  Look at the price with a critical eye while you take a look at the pictures and browse the magazine information.

The next factor to take into consideration is the actual cat that is on the clock.  Do you have a specific breed? If you are purchasing the wall clock for yourself this is something to look at.  If you're getting a clock for somebody else, you might want to find one that "matches" the intended recipient's own cat's breed or habits.

Next look at the product packaging for the name of the clock maker.  You don't want a cat wall clock simply because it features a kitty.  An accurate time keeping device is necessary if you'd like to enjoy the clock.  A number of these clocks feature "guts" from mystery makers that might or might not do effectively when it comes to durability and accuracy.  Try to find one you can trust that is produced by a respected producer of time pieces.  Always pick the cat wall clock from the known clock producer when you're making your pick.

The measurement of the clock will be the last thing you should think about.  You can find a really little cat wall clock as an accent item.  Additionally there are many big clocks available. Some large enough to be the focal point of any wall in a room.  If you are buying the clock for yourself, take into account where it is going to fit and if the dimensions can fulfill your needs.  If you're purchasing a clock for another person, try and choose one that's more likely to match with their decorating situation.  If you're uncertain about the room they have available, you will want to opt for a smaller cat wall clock that will be simpler for them to place.

You will find cat clocks available in a lot of distinct looks, various degrees of quality, and from a variety of sources.  Choosing the best one requires reflection upon price, pattern, quality and size.

Why Are There Countless Comforters On Sale?

Wed, 24 Nov 2010 20:35:38 GMT

The mail order catalogs are full of special deals.  The stores are slashing prices.  And on the net, they seem to be almost giving them away on bedding sites.  Comforters on sale are just about everywhere.

A new comforter may have been in your plans for a while now.  Maybe you have done some home improvement and put in a brand new bedroom.  It is possible you like to alter the way things appear in your bedroom.  The prices are amazing, your desire is there.  Which means there is no time like the present to look through the many comforters on sale.  But you are curious about the reason why there are numerous great deals?  What is happening here?  What is creating this rash of comforters on sale?

This is not going on by mistake.  Lower prices on bedding are occurring for several reasons.  Think about these possible rationales underlying product sales.

It could be seasonal.  During the summer time many people are throwing off the sheets, but in winter comforter sets sell much better when you need to get cozy underneath a nice warm blanket.  Stores normally need room for new stock, and selling off existing merchandise is a great way to have the needed space.  There's no question that a lot of the sales and specials are powered by excessive inventory.

The sale may just be for the reason that brand new patterns along with designs are squeezing previous inventory from the shelves.  Some of what you discover discounted could very well be styles that simply didn't sell effectively, however you can also find some classic looking and beautiful merchandise at reduced prices.  Nonetheless, if you discover something you love, go on and buy it.  Just understand that you may not be purchasing the most current and popular look.

Locating comforters on sale at very cheap prices can also be a symptom of the economy.  Cash flow is critical to any business enterprise. And with retail sales falling just about everywhere, stores need to find methods to move the products.  They could be selling in order to get money in the registers during a down economy, or they could be selling bedding as a loss leader to bring you to the shop.

Another possible basis for the low prices is significantly less appealing. It may be because of low quality.  Cheaper prices might result from merchants importing reduced quality products.  Internet customers must do some research as well as check reviews and brands. Retail store customers will have an easier time since they may check the items in person.  An inexpensive comforter is not really a good deal if it turns out to be a badly insulated, scratchy, irregular, low-grade piece of bedding.

At this point you understand the reason why prices are so low, so it's time to begin shopping.  Reap the benefits of great deals on great items.  You can find the best comforters on sale if you just shop around.

Tennis Apparel For Women Is Meant For Comfort

Wed, 24 Nov 2010 18:16:21 GMT

If you explore the styles of tennis apparel for women down through the decades beginning with the early years of the last century, you'll see a shortening of skirts. There is a single main reason for this and it has absolutely nothing to do with looking good for the males watching. Women realize the actual cause of the change is centered on comfort.    

Companies realize this and for that reason there's an abundance of comfortable, and yes, attractive clothing available. The designs tend to be picked from the range donned by iconic tennis players in the global tennis circuit. Therefore it is obvious that the way the apparel looks is still very important, although not quite as significant as the fit, quality and comfort. Just consider the recent press. Sure you'll find articles about the most recent competition, but you'll also find articles on what the women are donning on the court. But do not jump on the press for being so shallow. The sole reason those fashion articles get written is simply because people like to read them.

When tennis was enjoyed by ladies in England in the early years of the last century, formal apparel was the norm as the game was played on turf. The tennis apparel for women consisted of something full length. Today however the sport has become quite professional and tennis has attained industry status with gigantic amounts being spent on commercials regularly. In the past it was all about loose fitting cotton materials for those needing comfort. Today synthetic materials in many colors are popular for ladies worldwide.

In a few sports, men and women can wear essentially the same clothes. That isn't the case in tennis. There's a major income resource out there and businesses are competing with advertising and marketing to obtain a bigger percentage of those dollars. Those are dollars that exist because men and women wear different clothing. The apparel made for ladies must look wonderful, and make them feel good and play their best in all weather conditions. The apparel will fit snugly without affecting your general performance.

Yes things are certainly different now. Vibrant colors are now being displayed on courts which in the past only permitted whites to be used. Shorts usually are used by males while skirts are normal among women. But even women can wear shorts since nearly all courts now allow it.

When choosing your tennis clothes there are some things you should think about. If you opt to use a skirt it is important to check out the way it fits and how long it is. Obviously you will be uncomfortable if the skirt is too tight. Conversely your play can suffer if the skirt is too loose also.

If you play, you'd like to be able to compete. And to be competitive you've got to be comfortable.  You also want to keep the moisture away therefore light fabrics are a must. Just like in any other sport, you wouldn't want your clothing to have an effect on how well you play tennis. But bear in mind you also want to look great too!

If you are considering doing your treasure hunting in water, you will need a water scoop, a pouch to place your accessories in, and naturally a container to carry the things you locate in the water.

Different styles of scoops are available, but the most frequently used scoop for metal detecting in the water will be the sunspot scoop. Smaller items might sometimes fall through a sunspot scoop, but for the most part it's a good choice.

This particular scoop has a wood handle and the handle stays upright. The upright handle makes it easier to draw up when the time comes. This can be a little tough when there are bigger waves. For a quick hint, always hold the scoop so it's pointing toward the sea. Before attempting on the waves, you should use these on sand for practice.

We mentioned that you also will want a treasure hunting pouch. These are necessary to store anything you obtain. Try to acquire a pouch which has a zipper to help keep it closed. The pouch should if at all possible be made of plastic. Some pouches are made from metal and you always run the risk of it corroding in salt water.

There are more accessories which might be needed as well. If you're going out past the shoreline look at gloves, boots, and waders. If you're going further out you might need a mask and snorkel.

Metal Detector Accessories You Are Likely To Need For Beach Treasure Hunting

Naturally you will need the right clothes. The good news is that there is absolutely no expense here. Do not bother with anything brand new.. If you have some shorts or older denims around, they'll do nicely.

Naturally you'll need something to dig with. Lots of people utilize a standard backyard trowel for their digging. You can even go to your neighborhood Army Navy store and buy a hunting knife. However now we have innovative digging tools that are even more effective.

If you happen to be remaining on the beach a few other accessories you may possibly need to have a look at include things like a beach or sand scoop, and perhaps a Garret pocket probe.

Making Use Of Your Wood Turning Lathe The Proper Way

Fri, 27 Aug 2010 16:12:45 GMT

Your wood turning lathe genuinely could turn into your favorite tool, that's if you learn to utilize it the right way.  To make it simple (and it truly is) there are three ideas you'll need to remember.  They're applicable to any projects and you should keep them in mind no matter if you are turning a huge, heavy dining room table leg or a fragile candlestick.

It Is The Wood That Matters Most

Before you even consider getting into a wood turning lathe project, double-check the quality of the wood you're utilizing.  However the appropriate wood is simply one of several things you have to check.

You need to check the wood thoroughly to be sure it's the right size.  Remember you will be losing a bit from the top and bottom of the piece of wood. This is a frequent mistake.  In other words, make certain the wood is a little bit longer than the project necessitates.  There is nothing more aggravating than turning a great piece and then discovering that you just cannot use it.

But back to the quality of the wood for a moment.  Deep scrapes or splits in the wood means the project won't satisfy your expectations when it is complete.  The same holds true for the wood's visual appeal.  You ought to be sure the wood isn't discolored in any areas and the grain is appealing. If they're undesirable, your completed project will show that.

Every Job Requires The Proper Tool

Not every single wood turning lathe will deliver the results for every single job. Be sure the lathe you use is designed for what you're doing.  The statement "don't bite off more than you can chew" applies here. Quite simply, don't use a smaller lathe to try and turn a large piece of wood.

For instance that pen lathe you have may well be great, however it simply will not work on a larger task.  The same holds true for the reverse. You can use that large lathe for a smaller project, but you won't have the detail control you'd have with a smaller sized lathe.  Don't even start until you've thought carefully about the project and also the equipment you may have.  Are they really a good match?  You should be able to reply to that question in the affirmative without having hesitation.

A Great Project Is Not As Important As Your Safety

Every single project using a wood turning lathe is serious.  If you don't utilize it right, this powerful piece of equipment has the potential to do some significant damage.  It is well worth repeating a worn out cliche here. Just remember "safety first."

Make certain your wood is properly placed and is snugly fitted into the lathe.  Use all essential protective accessories.  Never touch a moving piece of wood with your hands--it only will take a few seconds for that machine to come to stop.  Flip the power switch into the off position so that you can remove the wood. And make sure you are using the proper lathe cutting tools for your machine and your task.

It's always exhilarating to complete a project, but you sure don't want to risk your safety just so you can get finished a couple of minutes quicker.  Be careful and take the time needed to stay safe.

Your Guide To Picking From The Numerous Portable Oxygen Tanks

Wed, 07 Apr 2010 21:59:24 GMT

Odds are you'll need to know about portable oxygen tanks at some point in your life. If not you, then somebody you love will probably need supplemental oxygen. There are a number of methods to get this supplemental oxygen, but portable tanks or cylinders are often a better option than oxygen concentrators simply because they're easier to move around. The decision on which one you get will come down to four central things.

How to Select?

The diagnosis of the disease as well the lifestyle requirements are important when deciding whether you should opt for portable oxygen tanks. It is worthwhile to mention that these decisions should be made only after consultation with the patient's physician. Are you (or the patient) able to maneuver around? What are the dosage requirements? In other words, just how much oxygen is needed on a consistent basis? These are critical factors which determine whether a patient should use a portable tank.

Portable oxygen tanks are better for supplying oxygen than portable oxygen cylinders. The explanation is that there's less oxygen when it is stored as a compressed gas when compared to oxygen kept in liquid form. The difference is massive. A single liter of liquid oxygen is the same as having 860 liters of gas oxygen which has been compressed.

This is kept within the tank at a temperature of -170 degrees Celsius. Based on the prescribed flow rate, the total amount of liquid oxygen inside a portable tank can last for two weeks.

The smaller portable tank is refilled from a main tank. You can ordinarily get nine to 10 hours use from the smaller tank if the flow setting is set at 2.

There are many reasons why you should make use of portable oxygen tanks.

1. Electricity is not required to run the tank so it can be used where ever you are. And it is quiet too. When the oxygen is being released there is little if any sound.

2. Bigger machines have several major moving parts. You will not find them on portable oxygen tanks.

3. Portable tanks often contain conserving devices.

4. An additional main advantage that separates portable tanks from other portable oxygen equipment is the fact that there are several lightweight units on the market. That means it's virtually no trouble to carry your tank where ever you want to go.

There is however a disadvantage to portable oxygen tanks. As we pointed out, they consist of liquid oxygen. That means that some of the oxygen may condense, and you'll lose oxygen in the process. That means you'll have to keep a observant eye on the quantity of oxygen left in the tank.

But the sizable amount of benefits including how simple they are to use still makes them a sensible and popular choice.
