Some News and Updates

Hey neighbors!

I have notified all winners of giveaways that have ended.  Not all winners have responded yet.  I am allowing a little extra time due to the holidays and everyone's busy schedule.  If they do not respond I will be choosing other winners.

To all winners who have already responded, your information has been forwarded to the sponsors.  Please remember that winning emails will be sent from blessed6mom at or atthefence at  The subject line will  read, "You won At the Fence!"

I have some nice giveaways coming up in the next week or two, so please be sure to stop by At the Fence for a visit to find out what is going on here.

Some new changes to At the Fence this coming year.  I will be rating products reviewed with a new ranking system.  I will use a sign that will have anywhere from 1-5 symbols to rate the product.  The symbols may change with the seasons.

1 symbol - Not Satisfactory
2 symbols - Not That Great
3 symbols - Average
4 Symbols - Above Average
5 Symbols - Outstanding

I will also be adding a photo day where we will share some of the photos we have taken that week.  I have not decided on what day or what we will call it, but I will appreciate your comments.

Giveaways will continue to be hosted on Rafflecopter.  Please spread your daily Tweets out some.  I still have some people tweeting all three right in a row.  The whole idea is to spread them out and share them with others.  I have recently started adding entries for sharing on your Facebook page and will continue to do so.

Giveaways are now listed in the sidebar.  Apparently the giveaway page was not working well, and it is more difficult for me to keep updated as a page.

I will be starting up the Surprise Boxes again.  I took a break over the holidays as we were quite busy just keeping up with the product reviews and giveaways.  I would like some ideas on themes for the Surprise Boxes so please leave a comment.

Last request.  If you have any ideas to improve At the Fence please leave a comment.  Maybe you have an idea for the design or how At the Fence giveaways are run.  Or perhaps you have some review or giveaway suggestions.  Please share them.

One last bit of news.  I extended the Terracycle giveaway as it had no entries.  Imagine my surprise when I checked and the Rafflecopter was not showing up.  Please, please, please, if you notice something like this, shoot me an email and I will correct the problem.

Thank you for stopping by At the Fence!

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon

Omron Heart Rate Monitor Review and Giveaway

Hey Neighbors, Another great product for the Get Out and Get Active! An Omron Heart Rate Monitor ($59.99)! Once again due to my disc problem my daughter was the one to try this out. This is seriously not fair! Anyway, one of the great things about a heart rate monitor is that you can make sure you are exercising in your zone.

This monitor comes witha high and low alert so you can make sure you stay right where you are supposed to. Not overdoing it, yet not taking it too easy! You can wear the wrist receiver on your wrist, or you can mount it on your bike or treadmill so it is easy for you to read. This Omron Heart Rate Monitor comes with: 1-Wrist Receiver Watch 1-Transmitter 1-Transmitter Strap (Chest size 29" to 55") 1-Receiver Mounting Bracket 1-Storage Case 2-"Lithium" Batteries (installed) 1-Instruction Manual (Above nice carry cas
