Tora, Tora, Tora Blu-Ray Edition!

Hello Neighbors,

This review is somewhat different than most as it is of a classic film, Tora, Tora, Tora.  I thought this would be a good item to review being  historical as it deals with the bombing of Pearl Harbor.  The film, originally done in 1970 and winner of the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects, looks tremendous on this new Blu-ray edition!  Simply put, it looks like a modern film, not one from over 40 years ago!  This film has been appreciated over the years for being particularly accurate in the details of this tragic event, which is exactly why it has been labeled a docu-drama, providing the facts while still maintaining a story-telling feel as you watch it.  Compared to the movies of today, Tora, Tora, Tora is very tame regarding violence, although I was somewhat surprised and disappointed that a few curse words were in the film, despite its "G" rating.

This Blu-ray DVD edition comes LOADED with extra's including the Day of Infamy Documentary, the AMC Backstory, The History VS Hollywood and the very special Fox Movietone News Clips, all regarding the accuracies of the movie, as well as many other interesting features such as the Behind the Scenes Gallery, the Production Gallery, Commentary and the original trailer!  In addition this Tora, Tora, Tora Blu-ray DVD comes specially sealed in a 10 page booklet that itself contains some pictures of the film as well as biographies of the main persons involved in that "Day of Infamy" December 7th, 1941 and the actors that portray these men.

Disclosure:I received no monetary compensation for this post.  I did receive a copy of Tora, Tora, Tora for review purposes.  All quotes are taken from the email or website.  All thoughts and opinions are entirely mine.

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.
