Sites to See for Veteran's Day

Hey neighbors!

Veteran's Day is almost upon us.  I have been feeling lately, that a lot of people look upon this day as just another holiday or special sale day.  I mean, I have already received sales flyers and other information on the great Veteran's Day sales.  I am just wondering how many people really consider this holiday for what it stands for.  All the men and women, who have given of their time and some their lives, so we can live in freedom, the way we do today.  Take our recent election for an example. Many countries are not allowed to vote in their leaders.

So, do you do anything special to honor veterans on Veteran's Day?  Do your children know what Veteran's Day is commemorative of?

We traveled for several years full-time on the road.  While doing this we took as many opportunities that we could to visit historic sites, parks, museums and monuments.  I am afraid though that when we went through Washington DC we missed many of the sights due to a lack of time.  We did manage to visit a couple of the Smithsonian buildings.  I wish we could have done more.

If you are traveling to DC, or live in the area, here are a few lesser known sights to see.

Thanks to for the above infographic.

Thank you for visiting today!  See you soon.

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
