Mike and Ike Have Split!

Hello Neighbors!

How is everyone?  It has been pretty hot here lately.  It is so neat to be able to watch our deck being built.  It looks great!  I do have some other news for you - Mike and Ike Candy have Split!

Why? They can't seem to agree on their ideas for Mike and Ike Chewy Candy!  Mike decided to pursue a career in music and Ike chose to be an artist!  The company is trying to get them back together and they are having a reaction contest to see what everybody's reaction is to the Split.  It is called the "Tell Us Your Reaction" Contest.  This runs through June 26th.  To enter you must create and then submit a video of your reaction to the split.  It should show what you think (surprise, sadness, happy, disbelief or whatever emotional feeling you have) and it should have a maximum of 90 seconds.  The Prizes Are :
FIRST PRIZE : Apple iPod Touch and Mike and Ike T-shirt
SECOND PRIZE (Four Winners) : Each receive one Apple iPod Shuffle and one Mike and Ike T-shirt
THIRD PRIZE (Fifteen Winners) Each receive a case of Mike and Ike Candy and one Mike and Ike T-shirt
You can get more information and enter on the Mike and Ike Facebook Page.

My family was amazed to hear the news!  My brothers and little sister especially have always enjoyed Mike and Ike Candy.  As soon as these came in they were all trying to steal them!  We finally decided to take a couple pictures and then we all snacked on them!

Here is some information about Mike and Ike ... "MIKE AND IKE® candy, with varieties such as Original Fruits, Tropical Typhoon®, Berry Blast®, RedRageous!™ and others, will continue to be offered at all retailers. Consumers will see no changes in flavors or distribution.
The independent and talented duo have decided to follow their true passions. Mike is a musician at heart, currently producing a CD; Ike is an urban artist and a lover of art. Their split is not unlike that of other famous celebrity duos like Simon and Garfunkel or Lennon and McCartney.
“People of all ages love MIKE AND IKE® and we are reassuring fans and our retail partners that our famous fruit-chewy candies will continue to be produced and sold as we get this resolved,” says Matt Pye, VP of Marketing for Just Born."

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.
