Intex Swimming Pools: Summer Fun

Get ready for a pool party at a minute’s notice with this Intex Swimming Pools, which measures 8 feet in diameter by 30 inches tall. It takes two people approximately 10 minutes to set up and get ready to pump full of water. The pool’s liner is supported by an inflatable top ring while the pool goes up by itself as the water level rises. The Intex Swimming Pool sidewalls are made of three separate layers of material for extra strength and durability. Two outer layers of heavy gauge PVC are laminated to an inner layer of polyester mesh for extra reinforcement–for a total thickness of 28 gauge (0.71 millimeters). It includes a convenient, easy-to-use drain plug that connects to a garden hose so that water can be drained away from the pool area. It also comes with a Intex 300 gallon-per-hour filter pump, which features a built-in debris surface skimmer and adjustable mounting bracket.

Weber Rolling Cart: Grilling Travel

I received this as a Christmas gift 4 years ago with my Q220 grill. I use it as my grilling stand on the back deck. It isn’t as sturdy as I’d like as the grill moves a little when brushing the grilling surface with a brush. The grill is "attached" to the stand with some "hooks" that catch the rear legs of the grill. Then the Weber Rolling Cart front legs set into some "pockets" on the top of the stand. If you need to move the grill, be sure to grab the stand and not one of the grill handles as you may lift the grill out of the pockets and it may slip out of the hooks and fall off the stand. The hooks and small tool storage area are nice and handy. I have a grill brush that hangs from one of the hooks all the time. I’ve used the stand while camping and it works well as long as you have level ground. Uneven or bumpy ground is difficult to use with this stand. It is very portable however, and the grill can be placed on the top in the Weber Rolling Cart folded position to use the stand as a two-wheeled dolly to transport the grill when tailgating. If I had my choice, I’d have selected the more permanent model grill stand for my Q220 as most of my grilling takes place on the back deck. If I were using it camping or tailgating, this is the perfect companion to the Q grill.

Barbecue Mitt: Keep Grilling

I bought this barbecue mitt because it was reasonably priced and made by Weber. Being a Weber fanatic, I had high hopes. But after trying to use it for the first time last night, I’m pretty disappointed. The mitt is very thick and heavy, which is great for protecting your hand from the heat. But it’s so thick and heavy that gripping things with it is tough. 1. Mitt fits comfortably all the way to your elbow (unless you’ve got really long arms) 2. Works fine at resisting heat and flames while you turn, baste and otherwise fiddle around with chunks of food on a grill 3. Aesthetically pleasing and has a ring for hanging when not in use. 4. Affordable 5. People volunteer for cooking duty if they can get a turn with the cool barbecue mitt glove. Holding onto a wide-handled spatula was doable, although not super easy. But holding onto and trying to manipulate BBQ tongs was pretty much impossible. After much frustration, I finally took the mitt off and used the tongs barehanded. I’ll probably use this mitt on occasion, but it won’t be anywhere near the number of times I had expected to use it. Kind of disappointed with this one, Weber.

Eyelash Conditioner: Eyelash Support

I was skeptical, but a bit desperate. Now in my 50’s, I have been noticing a steady decline in the number, the thickness and the length of my eye lashes, both upper and lower. And I did not like it! I did not know such a thing existed until I saw it on an end cap at the grocery store. Pricey….hmmmm….but if it works….would be so worth it. I apply eyelash conditioner the morning with my AM makeup routine making sure it is dry before I apply any another product on or near my lashes (eyeshadow, mascara, cover-up, etc.) I opted for the morning time, because a night task like that just did not work for me, even though the instructions say to do it at night. It seems it took the eyelash conditioner 4 weeks before I started to see changes I could believe were happening. My lashes are now much longer and thicker and hold the curl much better. Its like Rogaine for the eyes! I guess it is to be a life-long task for me, but the longer lashes sure do add a lot of life to the aging eye! Maybe the price will go down one day! Oh, I have not noticed any darkening on the skin near the lashes. Occasionally I get some mild burning while it dries. I "think" I felt some weird eye aching in the first week, but that has gone away. I was not sure it was from the "medicine", but chose to live with it!

American Crew Pomade: Mens Pomade

Over the years I have used lots of hair care/styling stuff over the years, from just letting it air dry to super hold gels. I had heard about American Crew Pomade from back in the day and thought it would be worth trying. I had been using Brylcream for a while but the little dab just didn’t give me as much control as I would of liked. This does a better job of providing hold with flexibility. It has a pleasant smell and rubs into you hands and then rubs right into my hair. If you don’t use too much it doesn’t give you the super slick wet look but it gives you a little shine and nice classy hold. Price wise I know it seems a little high, but you do get the two jars which should last for quite a while, of course depending on how much you use. And you don’t have the hard hat stiffness of gel, or the looseness of a cream. I have now become a very big fan of the American Crew Pomade and will continue to use it as long as I can get it here.

Monthly Reviews: Melissa And Doug Kitchen – Musical Table – Weber Grill Pan – Electric Insect Killer – Kettle Cover

18 07 2010

Melissa And Doug Kitchen: Fun For The Kids

The Melissa and Doug Deluxe Kitchen offers outstanding design features and solid-wood construction that will provide your children with years of serious kitchen fun. Although a bit pricey, this is a Melissa And Doug Kitchen set that has few rivals in terms of safety features, durability, and overall design. Recommended for children three years and older, this kitchen includes a stove top, refrigerator and freezer, see-through oven, microwave, sink, and plenty of storage space. Before you invest in this set, be prepared for four or more hours of set-up time. To assemble this Deluxe Kitchen Set, you’ll be asked to connect over 30 separate sold-wood pieces together with more than 170 nuts, bolts, screws and hinges. Don’t panic! The good news is that the instructions couldn’t be any easier to follow. If you know how to use a screwdriver and a hex key, you can do it. (A power screwdriver would speed things up quite a bit.) You’ll also want a second set of hands on call due to the set’s weight–the finished product weighs over 90 pounds.

Musical Table: Music Learning Table

Provide a world of learning and musical fun for your child with the LeapFrog Learn & Groove Musical Table. Designed for children ages six months to three years, this innovative toy is chock full of learning and musical activities designed to provide visual and auditory stimulation and motor skill development, as well as opportunities to learn about colors, the alphabet, and opposites for older children — and much more. The Musical Table sturdy, plastic-molded, brightly colored table sits flat on the floor for babies to play at while sitting. You can attach the table’s legs to adjust it to accommodate toddlers’ play while standing. And it offers plenty of activities at different levels of learning to keep your child entertained for these early developmental years. Your child will delight in spinning the maraca to hear a fun rendition of the ABC song; playing the colored piano keys to practice motor skills and learn about colors; moving the trombone’s slide to count to 10; and sliding the cello to learn about up and down.

Weber Grill Pan: Only The Best For Grilling

Other have done an excellent job reviewing this Weber Grill Pan and after using this pan for a week, I concur that- 1. This Weber grilling pan easily gets dirty but cleans up reasonably well with an SOS pad. Be sure to have a box on-hand, you will need them! 2. Get accustomed to the pan having a dark used look. Once used it will never be shiny. 3. I have used the pan on very, very high heat and it did not warp. Allow it to air cool after use. I would guess immersion in water if hot could warp the pan. 4. The Weber Grill Pan is much more expensive than other models. I saw a Ducane model at half the price but it had no reviews. I bought the Weber pan based on the name and good reviews. 5. I did not go with a non-stick model out of concerns for the non-stick surface chipping and getting into food. For me, it is hard to believe that a non-stick surface could survive bbq’ing for long. The size of the slits in this pan do block a lot of heat, so cooking meat and fish takes a little longer than if directly on the grill. Fish fillets turned out beautiful and stayed intact. I used PAM for BBQ’s and the sticking was not an issue.

Electric Insect Killer: No More Bugs

Since my central air conditioner broke, we had to install window units and this led to bugs coming in the house. Especially at night time. After days of being too scared to sleep during the night, I decided that I had to do something. I had tried turning an outside light on so the bugs would be attracted to that instead of the light in my room. That gave me the idea to find an electric bug killer. So I did my research and found that electric insect killer was a good price and it had high reviews so I ordered it and was so excited when it came in the mail. I’ve been completely satisfied with it. The electric insect killer attracts bugs and mosquitoes so well. I’ve noticed that the bugs aren’t swarming around the street light anymore since they’re more attracted to the light from the Flowtron. I haven’t had one mosquito bite since I installed it and there are no more bugs crawling around my room or in my house at night. Whether it is the light that attracts the mosquitoes, or it’s the unit itself, the point is that it really does kill mosquitoes. The Flowtron even comes with a scented cartridge to insert under the lightbulb, but I haven’t had to use it.

Kettle Cover: Protect Your Grill

The deliciously cooked foods Weber grills produce are reason enough to keep yours clean and protected year-round with a weather-resistant Weber kettle grill cover. This kettle cover hangs almost all the way to the ground, providing protection for the legs and lower portion of the grilling unit. Like all Weber grill covers, this one is made of heavy-duty vinyl that resists cracking even in subzero temperatures. It fits Weber 22-1/2-inch kettle grills. As I said in my review of the grill this cover is made for, I am not the kettle griller in the family, my husband is, so I actually bought this for him. We have had grill covers in the past, that are made of flimsy material, or even a bit too big for the grill they supposedly fit, so I figured this one would be the same and we were just paying for the weber name. Apparently I was wrong, It fits snugly, so getting it on takes a bit of patience, but the material is strong and seems very durable. This is our fourth grill in the 12 years we have been married, so I want this one to last…this cover seems like it will do a great job protecting our investment!

Dual Voltage Flat Iron: Travel Iron

I bought this a few months ago and haven’t looked back. I haven’t straightened my hair since high school about 7 years because I dreaded the 20 minutes it takes to do it. I had an dual voltage flat iron and the curler function didn’t even work. I threw that out and I no longer use the blow dryer to straighten. It takes me on average 5 minutes, as few as 3 minutes. It’s much faster if you wait until your hair is fully dry. You can adjust the heat from 0-30 and it has a turbo option. It truly does heat up in 30 seconds. My old Conair took 7 minutes to heat up. I saw it at CVS for about $20 and decided to check the reviews online. I actually paid less for it online and got free shipping. Perfect solution to straightening hair in no time. I don’t have to keep going over the same section of hair because it usually only takes one time in the iron.

Dead Sea Mud Soap: Minerals Soap

Our Dead Sea mud soap is enriched with century old Dead Sea mud, leaving your skin cleansed and nourished. As more people are learning about the healing and beauty effects of black mud from The Dead Sea, this soap is becoming a very popular choice for skin care conscious people. Then this little bar of soap came in the mail, and little did I know at the time, that it would be the foundation for a complete 360 in my life. The Dead Sea Mud Soap what can I say about it? On my first day of use my oily skin became normal and glowing, the redness of my acne subsided a little, and my face felt generally healthy. In my depression there was suddenly a small glimmer of light. After the first week I was no longer experiencing any more breakouts, and my existing acne was already gone. The light was getting brighter. After a month my face was smooth like a baby again, no more oily skin, and many of my post-marks were fading more quickly than usual. I began talking to girls with confidence again, and I went out with my friends again after nearly 6 months of being a hermit.

Weekly Recommendations: Weber Portable Gas Grill – Scarecrow Sprinkler – Terro Ant Killer – My First Purse – Radio Flyer Pathfinder Wagon

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.

Scarecrow Sprinkler: Pest Control

The Contech Electronics Scarecrow Motion-Activated Sprinkler presents an innovative, humane way to keep pets and wildlife from disturbing your yard and garden without the use of complicated traps or potentially hazardous chemicals. The Scarecrow Sprinkler combines a surprise spray of water with unexpected motion and noise to create a safe, effective deterrent to unwanted visitors, helping keep your garden looking its best.

But there are lots of reasons to avoid chemical deterrents, traps, and hazardous electric fences. Whether you’re a dedicated organic vegetable gardener or a parent looking out for the health of children and pets that play in your yard, you’ll appreciate the simple, innovative, and effective water-based concept behind the Scarecrow Motion-Activated Sprinkler. 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.

Fujitsu Scansnap Scanner: Scanned Documents On The Fly

I bought one scanner for my office in July it worked so well that I bought another one the next month. The Fujitsu Scansnap Scanner scans are so clear and the unit straightens up any pages which may feed a little skewed. It is true in operation to what it manufacturer states concerning dropping in different size documents and it takes care of straighting and re sizing. I have put in receipts with 8.5X10 documents and 8.5X14 some front only some front and back and it knows how to treat them all straighting each and skipping blank back pages as well as picking up double sided documents. The scansnap filing system is great for filing scanned documents on the fly. I have yet to have a misfeed and I have scanned some 500 documents my coworker has scanned about 1500 and her office is much more organized. The best part it scans both front and back with one pass and it knows to ignore blank pages. However the scan ocr character recognition when scanning to word is a little tricky. The original document must be clear.

Following the included instructions and using pieces in the starter kit, kids can build a house, helicopter, dog, and car. The only flaw is that the instructions may be challenging for younger children, and require adult assistance. As is the case with virtually every Lego set, your child will be limited only by his, or her, imagination and perseverance.
