Weber Portable Gas Grill: Outdoor Grilling

As the daylight lingers longer each day, the more carnivorous folk start salivating in anticipation. Barbecue season approaches, liberating meat lovers from the less-flavorful pan-fried steak or bland poached chicken breasts. Likewise, the vegetarians in the family rejoice in the prospect of grilled summer squash or roasted beets and corn, rather than settling for another head of iceberg lettuce and canned beans. For juicy burgers and veggie kabobs at home or at the lake, industry leader Weber offers their portable Q-100 gas grill. The propane grill employs an 8,500-BTU stainless-steel burner to heat its 189-square-inch cooking area. Weber portable gas grill crafted the grill’s lid and body in tough cast aluminum with a sturdy glass-reinforced nylon frame. The grill ignites at the push of a button for reliable lighting, and an infinitely adjustable burner valve with a high-quality regulator makes it easy to control the heat. Meat sizzles on the porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates, while drippings follow the drip ducts to reduce potential flare-ups and enable quicker cleaning.

It’s also a great choice for neighborhoods where fences are prohibited and for people who consider wire fences and other visual barriers unappealing.

Terro Ant Killer: Ants Dead Quick

The same proven Terro liquid formulation, in a convenient, pre-filled bait station. The Terro ant killer patented design eliminates handling of chemicals and prevents drying out. I’m very impressed with the product. It worked great! We had ants in numerous areas in the kitchen and they were spreading fast. I put a few of these out and at first the activity seemed to get worse. I guess they could smell the Terro ant bait. At one point we were pretty concerned. The 2nd day the product was out we had what had to be well over 100 ants crawling on the wall behind the stove top and down to the counter where we had one of these open. There must have been a nest in the wall behind the exhaust over the stove. Within hours the activity slowed down and by the next day — they were gone! That was about 2 weeks ago and I haven’t seen an ants since.

My First Purse: Play Time

International Playthings My First Purse In Purple is pleased to carry a collection of brightly colored fun toddler and preschool toys. Each toy is safe and durable with excellent play value – sure to provide children with years of play and tons of fun. The adorable soft, My First Purse includes chunky play lipstick, soft mirror, set of keys, wallet, debit card and portable play phone. This was the My First Purse I searched all over for when my 2 year old wanted her own makeup. (Play makeup is greasy and can damage things just as much as real makeup.) This little playset is perfect because the lipstick is plastic, the items are chunky and the purse is sturdy for holding it all. She loved the kit and didn’t care that it was all fake-she really liked the "wallet" with her own "credit card"! I would call this a must-have for toddlers who like to pretend to be grown up.
