I Should Have Portable Solar Power!

Hey neighbors!

I bet you would never guess that I would have a hard time without internet and my cell phone! Since I have started At the Fence I seriously need to have an internet connection. There are times when we are traveling and I realize my laptop is dead and we won't actually be pulling in anywhere where I can plug in to recharge. What do I do? Usually I just have to wait. Would solar power be a solution? That is possible. I really don't like it when I can't at least type the post ahead of time, so it is ready to go up when we arrive, so I am thinking perhaps portable solar power would help.

I also hate when we are separated from the children and my cell phone is dead. Here is how important my cell phone is for keeping in touch with my children. My two older daughters left for a trip with our pastor's family. They were going to a camp meeting for a few days. I think they were gone about an hour before I called to check in. They received 3-4 calls a day just to see how they were doing. Now for the big confession, they were 18 and 20. Isn't that horrible! They still laugh anytime we leave them to go on a trip because they know I will be calling shortly to see how they are doing. So, of course I need a way to keep my phone charged when we are traveling several days in a row. Now I guess you can see why I might consider portable solar power. I need to stay in touch!

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.
