Could You Use Portable Solar Power?

Hi Neighbors!

As many of you know we spend a lot of time on the road. Many times we end up in a campground and portable solar power would be quite helpful. Or we are in a location where there are no outlets nearby. I mean we have been at churches that have an outhouse out back. Between blogging, cell phones, and all the electronics that a family of 8 carries around I believe solar power would be a major benefit. Not to mention the times we have ended up without a power source at all. We spent one weekend in our camper with no power or water! We really felt like we roughed it!

I can also remember times that we sat in a tent without power, would have loved to have some power source. Or how many times have you pulled out a camera or camcorder, only to find the battery is dead and you have no way to charge them? Having portable solar power would have really made my day. We have actually gone to a restaurant and found a table with a plug nearby so we could re-charge a cell phone or camera. I am sure some of you have done that too!

Is a portable source of solar power something you might benefit from? Personally I always thought I would love to purchase some property somewhere and make it self sufficient. Solar power, our own well, a garden and raise our own animals, such as chickens, etc. Maybe someday in the future. For now I would be happy to be able to use solar power when necessary to charge our smaller products.

Goal Zero carries many kinds of solar power sources. Their products were originally aimed at people who had no power, or were on an unstable grid. Now they market their products to anyone who might need a solar power source. Take some time and check out their website if you are looking into going off the grid, or perhaps you just want the ability to use solar power to charge your laptop, cell phone etc.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
