Tetherball At the Fence Courtesy of Hearthsong

Hey Neighbors!

As you know we have really been working out back quite a bit.  So, I was really happy when Hearthsong decided to work with us with their Deluxe Heavy-Duty Backyard Tetherball Set.  Today I am going to post about putting it up and then tomorrow or Monday I will post showing you how much fun you can have with tetherball!

This set comes with everything you need, except for someone to dig the hole and the bag of cement you should use to put the pole in the ground.  So, We ran out and picked up a bag of cement mix and then asked one of my sons to dig us a hole.  He did a great job!  After digging your hole about 8-10 inches around and just deep enough for the plastic sleeve, you are almost ready to mix your cement.  Right before you do your cement you need to tape the end of the provided plastic sleeve.  (One end only!)

Now, you are ready to mix your cement.  We started out mixing in a bucket, but we had a hard time getting the bottom mix wet, so we moved it to a larger plastic bin.  It worked!  After it was mixed well, we added a little bit to the bottom of the hole and then I held the plastic sleeve in place, taped side down, while my son filled in the rest of the hole.  Be sure you do not allow any cement down the tube.  We placed a brick on top of the sleeve to hold it in place.  Now we wait!

While we wait though we can get everything else ready.  We used the little pump, which comes with this set, to blow up the tetherball.  We also went ahead and attached the other parts of the poles together and attached the ball at the top.  Now we just need the cement to dry.  Then we will be able to slip the pole in the sleeve and play ball!

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.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point.
