Some Simple Shaving Tips

Hi Neighbors!

Today At the Fence we are going to share some shaving tips!  This post is for the men in your life.  Now, we travel a lot!  So, my husband has to pack a travel kit for shaving.  He preaches, and although he has a beard, he still has to keep a neat appearance, so he shaves his neck area, under his chin.  He also has to do a little shaving on the cheek area, just to keep it neat. His travel kit consists of a good razor (not one that I have previously used!), a good travel size shaving cream, and after shave.  Sometimes we include a moisturizing lotion for those times the skin is extremely dry.

On to the tips. He always starts with warm water.  Never cold and never does he dry shave!  I personally tried dry shaving one time in the Florida heat.  Not a good idea at all!  Anyway, start with applying warm water to the areas to be shaved.  Then he applies the shaving cream liberally.  In times of dire need, like I forgot to pack the shaving cream, he will use a really good moisturizing liquid soap. (Usually mine!)  He shaves with short even strokes.  When he is done, he rinses with warm water, and inspects to make sure he did not miss any areas. Pat the shaved area dry.  Rubbing dry has a tendency to irritate the skin. Then he will apply the aftershave lotion, or moisturizing lotion.  Depending on which one is needed most. 

So here are the tips to remember:

1.A good razor

2. Always use warm water.

3. Apply the shaving cream liberally.

4. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

5. Pat dry, do not rub.

6. Apply aftershave or moisturizing Lotion.

7. Now go give your wife a kiss!

6. Apply aftershave or a moisturizing lotion.

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.
