Milestone Pod Run Form Buddy Review! #HGG2015

For a little over a year now I have been doing some running a few days a week.  It started out with my sister and I entering a 5K race last year, and I found myself enjoying running so much I just kept it up. I've seen my running time improve the past few months, and also my stamina improving. I've been using an activity tracker watch, but then I learned about the Milestone Pod, a little device made specifically for runners.

I received a Milestone Pod for review, and quickly found it to be much different than the average pedometer-style device I'm used to. The Milestone Pod gets attached to your shoe-running the laces through it, so it's very secure-and then syncs with your Apple or Samsung devices via the mobile app. It's pretty easy to set up, and then you're ready to go! After my first run I used the app to sync the information recorded, and it's amazing how much you can learn from this! This doesn't just log the steps/miles you ran, it also tells you your pace each mile, your cadence, calories burned, footstrike (which part of your foot hits the ground first), stance time, rate of impact, stride length, leg swing, and your "Runficiency", the efficiency of your running technique. This is such a great tool for anyone who is serious or wants to get serious about their running, walking or jogging!

I will say, don't get this if you're wanting to use it as a normal pedometer-it will not track unless you keep a cadence of 100 for at least 6 minutes. Example: it was on my sneakers while I played several vigorous games of racquetball, but because the pace isn't steady, it didn't track any steps. For a runner though, or even someone who walks several days a week for exercise, this is the perfect tool. I am really enjoying checking the data, and can't wait till warmer weather so I can get back outside and run without the fear of slipping on ice! If you've got a runner in your life, the Milestone Pod would be a wonderful Christmas present this year!

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.
