At the Fence with a Rio Brands Umbrella

Hi Neighbors!

Here is something perfect for those of you who can not take exposure to the sun.  Several people in my family burn easily, I am one of them.  So, when Rio Brands offered to allow us to review one of their 7 ft. Total Sunblock Umbrellas, we were real excited.

The Rio Brands Umbrella has some really neat features.  First it comes in two pieces and has a storage bag for carrying it with you.  The bottom of the post is designed for you to screw into the ground.  The feature I like best about this is, there are two little handles that pop out to assist you in screwing the pole into the ground.

The umbrella pole slides into the top after you have it safely anchored in place.  A small lever helps lock it in.  The you can safely open your umbrella.  Now, here is the other feature I like.  The top of the umbrella pole has a joint you can move, so that the umbrella tips and blocks sun!

This is perfect for a trip to the beach, a park, ball game, picnic or just to use in your own yard.  Rio Brands has several umbrellas to choose from, along with some other accessories.

Look at the pictures!  Isn't this perfect for quick trips!  I think we might just keep ours in the carry bag in the back of our Suburban.

This Rio Brands Umbrella is lab tested to block 99.8% of UVA and UVB rays.  I have a feeling we will be using our umbrella quite a bit.  Portable, easy to set up and a great sun block!

From Rio Brands:

Total Sun Block™

Breakthrough Technology—intense Protection from the Sun.
All Total Sun Block umbrellas and shelters have been lab tested and proven to block 99.8% of the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.  Total Sun Block offers breakthrough technologies that provide advanced protection from the sun.
Protection from both UVA and UVB is very important.  The sun produces two types of invisible rays that cause skin damage: ultraviolet A(UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB).
  • UVA rays penetrate more deeply into the skin and can contribute to premature skin aging and skin cancer. We encounter UVA rays no matter what the season or time of day.
  • UVB rays damage the outer layers of skin and are the main cause of sunburn.          
Total Sun Block products shield you from the effects of both types. 

You can also find Rio Brands on their social media pages.

Have a great weekend neighbors!  See you soon, At the Fence.

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.

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
