Exercise Equipment Needed

Hey Neighbors,

It is a nice day today.  It is getting cooler around here and I love it!  I have been doing exercise using the Tread Mill at our local Gym but I have been checking around because it would be nice to have some exercise equipment at home.  Then  I wouldn't have to go out every other day!  Not to mention it is a 40 minute ride.   I have been thinking about a gym bike.  One thing it would have to have is a back to it because my lower back still gives me some trouble.  I found one I like called the Stamina Folding Recumbent Steel Frame Exercise Bike.

Isn't it nice?!?  I also like it because it folds up.  That way I could un-fold it when I needed it and then fold it back up and store it out of the way when I was done! With six children in a home actually designed for maybe 4 or 5 we do have space problems!  Hence our re-doing the enclosed back porch into another bedroom.

 Another one I found interesting is a bike with a heart rate monitor.  This one is called the Stamina InStride Compact Lightweight Folding Cycle and is really neat!  

I like this because you can use it anywhere and it is for upper or lower body workouts!  And it folds up for easy storage or for traveling!  I would love to have this so that I could bring it with us when we travel and I would ALWAYS be able to exercise.  Like on this trip I missed two days of using the treadmill because of travel.  I hate that!

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.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June.

Thank you all so much for your love and support over the years. ~Mercy
