Did You Know About A Wrinkle In Time?

Did you know about A Wrinkle in Time?

This is a really great science fiction/fantasy book. I am not too much into those genres of books, but this is one of my all time favorite books. I read it when I was ten years old and it became my favorite then.

I just read it to my kids this past week. We finished it over the weekend. It is a great book, full of fun images, weird, far out ideas, great characters, and several mentions of passages from the Bible.

I loved this book and my kids did too. A little on the weird side, but good. The day after I finished reading to the kids, my daughter read the whole book to herself. In one day!

Did You Know Camping in State Parks is Affordable?

Did you know camping in state parks is affordable?

We just took our family for the weekend. It was wonderful! We rented a shelter in a state park. These ran $20 a night. That is very affordable. To top it all off, we have a park pass which saves on park entrance fees, and we had a coupon for 50% off one night's stay. For three night's camping, we paid less than we would for a cheap hotel. And it was much more fun! Being out in nature, relaxing, sitting by the fire....

Check out your local state parks for your next weekend getaway.

Did you know bid4prizes?

This is a reverse auction site with their eye on fun! You may have bid before in online auctions, but this site turns that concept completely upside down. The winner of these auctions is the bidder with the LOWEST, unique bid. What this means is that many people can enter a bid, many can even enter the same bid. However, the winner is the one who bid the lowest, unique price. Unique in this case meaning that no one else entered that bid. Pretty unique in itself, I'd say! The winner of this auction pays no price other than the shipping price.

You could sure stand to win some great items in this upside down auction. There are two ways to join in all the fun at bid4prizes. You can play on line, for no cost. Or you can play via your cell phone using text messaging (SMS). You will need to purchase a bid package for $9.99 a month, for unlimited bidding.

You can find some really great stuff on this site, that you could stand to win at a deeply discounted price. You can find iPods, plasma TV's, iPhone, even a new car! If you are not up to bidding on a prize, you can enter the Sweepstake to win Free gifts like a $10,000 Cash prize !

It's fun, it's easy and there's a new winner everyday!

Did You Know About the Doctor Invading National Land?

Did you know about the doctor invading national park land?

My friend wrote about this today on his blog. It seems in Montana, there is a doctor looking for a little peace and quiet, a little relaxation away from it all. He seems to have found the perfect spot for his hobby of river fishing. The only problem is, this land is national land. It would not be such a problem for the doctor if he would follow the laws. Laws everyone else has to follow. Such as having a permit, fishing in season, and not bringing in a helicopter! Yes, it appears the doctor is being flown into his quiet fishing spot by a helicopter. He has allegedly also been guiding groups in on his own, without a permit. He is sure to bring along his personal chef, who sets up a picnic table in the middle of the river, so the fishermen don't have to bother getting out of the river to fish.

Well, if you want to read more about this story and find links back to the originals, visit my friend Montucky .

Did You Know About Crucifixions?

Did you know about Crucifixions?

In today's sermon, we were reminded of the death of Jesus. The preacher wanted to make sure we had an image of what this all involved. It is really a horrific death, "perfected" by the Romans.

When the nails were driven into the hands and feet, no vital organs would be disturbed. This made certain that the victim would suffer greatly before finally dying. Bugs and birds most assurdly preyed upon the bleeding, scarred body hanging in the air.

Breathing was most difficult, especially the exhalation. Taking a breath and then letting it back out was laborious and painful. The crucified person most often eventually died of suffocation.

Did You Know It Is The 30th Anniversary of Star Wars?

Did you know this year is the 30th anniversary of Star Wars?

I hadn't thought about it til yesterday. I was in the post office and saw an ad to win a trip to Los Angeles for the 30th anniversary of Star Wars. I cannot believe it's been thirty years since that movie came out and impacted society the way it did.

Star Wars was the first movie my sister and I went to the theater to see without our parents. Of course, this was only after seeing it with our parents.

We grew up loving Star Wars. My sister had every toy made at the time. Now, thirty years later, my kids really love Star Wars.

What an enduring tradition.

Did You Know About Custom Seat Covers?

Did you know about custom seat covers?

If you have ever taken your pet anywhere in the car, you know the importance of covering your seats before allowing him/her to ride. Now days, pets are much more mobile than ever before. I am always seeing pets, mostly dogs, riding in cars. We have experienced this ourselves, though only on occasion.

When we do load our dog up for a ride, we definitely have to cover the car, as she sheds a great deal. If a dog is not accustomed to riding in a car, s/he can become very excited and/or agitated. This brings up the need for seat covers.

Seat covers prevent hair from getting everywhere in the car. It can also help stop seepage if the dog becomes so excited it urinates in the car.

If you are looking for the perfect Car seat covers and load area covers for your pet's next ride, be sure to check out this site. You can even order custom seat covers to perfectly fit your unique ride space. You can even find car ramps to help your pet get safely into and out of the car.

Not only can you peruse the selection of car seat liners, you can find items for your pet at home, inside or out. There is a great selection of dog beds, including luxury for your Prince or Princess. There are a variety of colors, fabrics and styles to choose from.

Did You Know I Belong to a Mary Kay Co-op?

Did you know I belong to a Mary Kay co-op?

Have you ever wanted certain products, but could not always find the time or finances to get just what you want? Several of us got used to using Mary Kay make up products and cleansers when friends and/or family sold it. During this time, we were given discounts to buy the products. After our family/friend quit selling the products, we wanted to keep using them, but could not afford them.

So one of us came up with a great solution. She would become the "consultant", getting the discounted rate. All of us would belong to a co-op. We order a certain minimum every few months and all enjoy the discounted rate.

Did You Know About Gamma Knife Surgery?

Did you know about gamma knife surgery?

This new brain tumor treatment is really revolutionary! Doctors can now operate on a patient's brain without cutting into it! The tumor is destroyed by having the beam orbit the head. This powerful beam of energy in turn destroys the tumor.

Having recently read Death Be Not Proud, I know the family in this book would have loved to have this wonderful option. The boy and his parents tried everything available to them in their day and time, even mustard gas! But something this non-invasive would have been a wonderful blessing to them. And now, it can bless those who face this difficulty in their lives today.

Did You Know You Can Get Some Great Star Wars Costumes?

Did you know you can get some great Star Wars costumes ?

If your family is anything like mine, Star Wars paraphanelia and regalia are part of growing up. I saw the original Star Wars when I was 10. My sister and I fell in love with it, especially her. She owned every Star Wars toy that came out. We grew up playing Star Wars for a long time.

Fast forward to parenthood. My son especially loved Star Wars. He wanted to be Anakin. He dressed almost daily like a Jedi Knight. I sure wish I could have found these costumes back then. These look like the real thing! My daughter took one look and said "those are nice costumes, not some silly little things."

Now a days, I've got two nephews who would love a costume or two to re-enact Star Wars battles. Take a look at the things on this site. They have adult costumes, kids costumes, male and female characters, lightsabers, gloves and replica weapons. What more could any Star Wars aficionado ask for?

May the Force Be With You.

Did You Know About HDMI Switches?

Did you know about HDMI switches? Last year my dad bought a new HD TV. I don't know much about it at all. He and my husband and son say it is great. The picture is crisp and clear. That is great. Now he can watch all his baseball games on HD TV!

I wonder if he needs an HDMI Switch. I am not really sure exactly what the switch will do, but I know that there are some available that will connect up to four digital AV pieces of equipment. These products are available for residential as well as commercial, so I know that if my dad needs it for his new HD TV, it will be available without having to wait for new technology to catch up to him!

Did You Know It is Never Too Early to Teach Teens About Credit Cards?

Did You Know It is Never Too Early to Teach Teens About Credit Cards? My kids have always been interested in credit cards, as are many kids. It seems to them that it is a magic card that can be used to get anything you want. They do not see that there is real money involved, and this can lead them into trouble when they get out on their own.

When your teen is out shopping with you, or begins to show an interest in shopping, this is a perfect time to talk with him/her about credit cards and their place in your life. You may want to share personal success and/or failure stories with them. Be sure and tell them how important it is to compare credit cards when the time comes for them to apply for one, and not to just blindly accept the first one they get in the mail.

Talk to them about the interest rates that credit cards carry. Let them know about how much that adds to the monthly balance. Have them check into 0% credit cards. Teach them about balance transfers . Let them see you pay off your credit card debts each month. If you do not, let them know about how this carries over to the next month.

Be honest with your teen and help them to make healthy credit card decisions.

Did You Know It Is Legal to Pick Bluebonnets in Texas?

Did you know it is legal to pick bluebonnets in Texas? Although there is an urban legend, perpetuated by the staunchest Texan, stating that it is illegal, it is actually legal to pick bluebonnets. There are laws about impeding traffic and trespassing on private property, but if you want to pick a couple of Texas bluebonnets, you won't be breaking any laws by doing so.

Did You Know About Wooden Blinds?

Did you know about wooden blinds? Many people have chosen wooden blinds in recent years. The contemporary look has influenced many folk's choice. The comeback of wood floors in many homes has made wooden blinds a modern choice for window coverings.

In my own home, I have regular blinds right now, but in the past have considered making a change. The window coverings I have now do not look as nice as the wooden blinds I have seen available. I wonder if they help to keep out the heat of the sun in the afternoon as well as look nice on the windows. They seem to really provide a nice, clean look to the window and to the whole room as well. It seems they would be eaiser to clean as well.

Did You Know My Son Took a DJ Class?

Did You Know My Son Took a DJ Class? Last summer a local community college was holding a DJ class for teens. My son enrolled with five or six other kids.

This summer he will be able to go work (volunteer) at the radio station each week.

Did You Know About Ultimate Paintball?

Did you know about Ultimate Paintball? My husband has taken the youth group from church to play paintball several times. He loves it and so do many of the kids. He was telling my son about it not long ago. My husband's buddy was in the army and loved to get dressed in his camo for a day at paintball. And he had stealth. He would disappear before you could get a shot on him, and reappear from behind, ready to splat you.

Did You Know About Daddy Dolls?

Did you know about daddy dolls ?

Apparantly you can get a human shaped stuffed pillow with a digital photo of your daddy's face printed on it. This is being offered to families who have daddy overseas fighting right now. These pillows range from $19-$25 depending on the size you get. It sounds like a good idea for little ones who may or may not remeber daddy while he is gone. It helps them to remember his face and gives them something to hug when daddy is not there to hug. This should be a great asset to many military families.
