November 2014 Graco Stroller Recall

I just heard on the news last night that Graco is recalling some strollers. I don’t think my stroller is included in the recall, but the reason for the recall is quite frightening. The strollers recalled are Graco and Century branded. 

It’s HOT

Hey guys, I know it’s summer. It’s obviously HOT. We like to think that in Texas, we have the harshest heat in the country. It can get just down right boiling outside. In 2011, the Dallas/Fort Worth area had 71 days with temperatures over 100 degrees according to the National Weather Service.

What’s through the window?

Today’s Daily Post picked a good day to ask us to look through the window. Today looking out the window there are gray rain filled clouds in the sky. Today is going to be a windy, rainy day here in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. We definitely need the rain. Texas seems to be in a perpetual state of drought. I am always thankful for the rain when we get it.

Monster Walker (For Dogs That Pull!) – YouTube

Monster Walker (For Dogs That Pull!) – YouTube. I just got an email on from Coupaw, on this product. I ordered one, because I know a dog who pulls. When Chico was a pup, we were using pinch collars. They were better than choke collars. We’ll see how it works. Does anyone else have any products for your pet products that you love?  

West Nile Virus

Here (and elsewhere, I might add) mosquitoes have become disease carrying little creatures. Namely West Nile Virus, which is a strain of encephalitis; a disease that can be deadly and is carried by some mosquitoes. People over 50, young children, and people with compromised immune systems are at the highest risk of contracting this disease. If you were bitten by a mosquito carrying West Nile, it can take up to 15 days to experience the symptoms, which include: severe headaches; fever;nausea and vomiting; []

Summer is here

Summer is here and that means most schools should be letting out for some fun in the sun and water. I have some safety reminders for you…in addition to the Fire Safety tips I posted earlier. Use Sunscreen Choose one that contains protection against UVA and UVB rays and a SPF of at least 15. It is best to apply 15-20 minutes before going outdoors. Protect your eyes UV radiation can cause damage to eye tissue, according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology. []
