More reason to stay inside or be ready with Mosquito Spray..........Botfly is in the US!

Okay so let me start with the videos below are graphic and might make you vomit but it is sadly something everyone needs to be aware of. The Botfly has made it's way into the United States this is a fly which lays its eggs inside of a mosquito and then the mosquito bites leaving the eggs inside of its victim which later has a huge bump that starts to move and eventually maggots come out of the bump. Yup lovely stuff. 


Botfly: A botfly,[1] also written bot fly,[2] bott fly[3] or bot-fly[4] in various combinations, is any fly in the family Oestridae. Their lifecycles vary greatly according to species, but the larvae of all species are internal parasites of mammals. Largely according to species, they also are known variously as warble flies, heel flies, and gadflies. The larvae of some species grow in the flesh of their hosts, while others grow within the hosts' alimentary tracts. The word "bot" in this sense means a maggot.[4] A warble is a skin lump or callus such as might be caused by an ill-fitting harness, or by the presence of a warble fly maggot under the skin. The human botfly, Dermatobia hominis, is the only species of bot flies whose larvae ordinarily parasitise humans, though flies in some other families episodically cause human myiasis, and are sometimes more harmful. The "bot" fly will hijack a mosquito to inject the host with the eggs.

This first video is one I found on Youtube which shows a person having the Human Botfly living inside them. 



This 2nd video is a video which my husband's cousin Pat took here in Kissimmee, FL which the neighbor across the street from him also had a encounter but did not get a video of it.


 So that is 2 first hand reports that I personally have seen and heard of on animals in Kissimmee, FL, which I am sure it won't be long if it has not already happened on humans.......which we are watching a spot on my daughter which looks nasty praying it is not this just because disgusting and horribly painful. :( 



8 Awesome Gifts for Your Pup for National Dog Day


I am so a cat person, at least that was up to about 2 years ago when I got a dog because my neighbor was making my family uneasy. Then I got another dog a year later from the animal shelter, to keep the first dog company while the kids were at school and we were at work. Well my 1st dog acts as though he is one of my kids he gets super excited to have clothes on, and loves to be hugged. The 2nd dog thinks he is a lap dog, only issue with this is he is a over 100lb Labrador.  But it all comes down to, I love my dogs! Did you know that August 26th is National Dog Day!

AZO Bladder Control & Weight Management


Thanks to having a ton of kids, I now always have to wear a pantyliner because when out if I laugh, cough, sneeze (this being the worst) or do anything which sends a pulse through my body I lightly pee myself, so fun, yup, and sadly it is something I have learned to live with. Thankfully others out there said NOPE not dealing with this my whole life so they came up with a kinda easy and simple fix. AZO Bladder Control and Weight Management, yeah they figured it was something we all have both issues with so why not beat them in one shot.

I have used AZO before thanks to having a UTI which my mom warned me my pee would be orange and I thought she was full of it, WOW it was NEON ORANGE LOL never saw anything like it but the stuff worked wonders so I figured that this product will be just as great.

The new AZO Bladder Control and Weight Management is exactly that. Clinically studied Synetrim® CQ, from the Cissus quadrangularis plant, supports serotonin balance to help promote metabolic health to support healthy weight management.* The result is a safe and effective way to maintain bladder control from the inside out! You can find this great products as well as others from AZO at your local Target store and other retail.

First off it has motion alerts, which instantly pop up on your smartphone when movement is detected, when using the smart home enabled EZVIZ app. This is the best, I get a lot of packages delivered and it is great to know by what company and how many are being left at my door, especially if weather is not good I can have my neighbor grab up for m until I am home.

Free Television with the Mohu Leaf® Glide 65-Mile Range Indoor Amplified HDTV Antenna


Growing up my dad was very anal about spending money so I never had a game system or satellite or cable tv, even when all became less expensive. Even to this day my parents have basic television and wow here in FL at least in Lake Wales and in Kissimmee we now get over 100 channels of normal FREE television. 

The Mohu Leaf Glide 65-Mile Range Indoor Amplified HDTV Antenna gets the 100 and more even better is it picks up the HD extremely well! I find it funny my in-laws bought a big 55" television and they are paying for the NFL package to top off everything but when I go to their home and their television is on it looks like a old school tv with the rabbit ears reception because she is not paying the extra for the HDTV cable box, but yet here I am not paying a penny and my picture is so clear you would think I am there. 

Because of great products like the Mohu Leaf Glide 65-Mile Range Indoor Amplified HDTV Antenna I am able to spend money on things I really need or want. We also have the first addition Mohu Leaf 30 Indoor HDTV Antenna and I believe we have had it 4 years now? But it is great as well, nothing like it's newest big brother the Mohu Leaf Glide 65 Mile Range Indoor Amplified HDTV Antenna but when hurricane Matthew came through we actually had boarded up because it was a very all over hurricane so better safe then sorry but anyhow my point is we placed the Mohu Leaf 30 Indoor HDTV Antenna outside in the rain and wind and it worked great and is still going strong even though it is made for indoors we took the chance because it is cheap to replace at $39.99. I really LOVE the Mohu line of HDTV Antennas we have not had a single issue with any of them and have even gave a few as gifts to friends and family. You can find your perfect Mohu HDTV Antenna by visiting  http://www.gomohu.com/

Going back to school looking to save some money? Check out this deal below but hurry offer ends soon!

Paw Pods, A beautiful way to say goodbye to your pet


The death of a loved pet is something no one wants to face, unfortunately most of us will have to. 65% of U.S. households own a family pet and each year, nearly 50 million of them pass on annually. As deeply saddening and heart wrenching as that is, Paw Pods’ burial pods help make that loss a little easier. With the ability to accommodate pets of all sizes (even fish pods for your kids' first pets), these eco-friendly urns and pods also come with seeded sympathy cards, leaving a beautiful living memorial. Our pets are our family, Paw Pods helps you honor the ones we have lost but will never forget.

Paw Pods are bio-degradable pods allowing owners to bury their pets at home with a dignified, beautiful memorial. The pods can be decorated with paints, markers or stickers giving children and adults a way to express their grief in an expressive and therapeutic form. A seeded leaf of perennial flowers is included with every pod. Its annual blooms create a living memorial to a treasured friend.

Paw Pods recognizes that beyond the unconditional, pure loyal love and joy pets give us, their carbon footprint on our planet is next to none, so their afterlife should follow suit. All pods and urns are eco-friendly and made of bamboo powder, rice husk, and corn starch, designed to respectively degrade in 3-5 years after being introduced to the environment. Additionally, pet owners sometimes mistakenly flush what they believe is a dead fish down the toilet, when it’s in fact, very much alive. Those fish often wind up in lakes and rivers where they can introduce diseases to native fish and water sources. Paw Pods’ Fish Pod offers a safer way to lay pet fish to rest.

Paw Pods are extremely affordable, ranging in price from $9.99 to $149.99, a fraction of what traditional pet caskets cost.


Fish Pod – The loss of a fish may be a child’s first experience with death. These small fish shaped pods can help them avoid the trauma of seeing a pet flushed down the toilet. This also may serve as an important teaching tool for parents, death can be very difficult to explain, let alone comprehend for young children, make them a part of the process.


Medium-Sized Pod – Accommodates medium-sized pets including rabbits, cats and smaller dogs. This size pod is the most commonly used.


Additional Sizes - They love all animals, from a tiny hermit crab to a majestic Great Dane, Paw Pods offers sizes for almost all pets.


Heart Shaped Urn – When burial space is limited or cremation is preferred, the heart shaped urn is a lovely option and can also be used as a display.

Anyone that has ever owned a pet, sought out on that adventure for companionship, to expand their homes and to open their hearts, find solace in knowing you are reciprocating that unequivocal love and friendship.

A bit about Paw Pods – Paw Pods is a company of pet owners and pet lovers dedicated to helping other pet owners navigate the painful experience of losing a treasured animal friend. It was started as a way to help its founder deal with his own grief after losing two of his cherished dogs and being severely disappointed in the way in which they were returned to him. You may not need them right now; but they want to be there when you do. Visit http://pawpods.com/ for more information.

World's Smallest Silly Putty, Hot Wheels and more!

I think the 90's were the best time to grow up. I mean we had it made we had toys that stood up to anything you could throw at them, we used our imaginations to come up with games and more. It is really exciting to see a lot of things from the late 80's and 90's coming back so my kids can enjoy them as well. 

World's Smallest has come out with many items from the late 80's and 90's which kids can enjoy and parents can collect without it taking up space. Most of these toys have managed to continue to be toys in which all kids play with to this day. Some examples are: 



Silly Putty:
Wow when this first came out it was the best thing ever. You could pull out your Silly Putty, smash it down on the Sunday Comics then pull it up slowly and make the comics stretch out or squish or whatever you wanted because their pictures would now be on your Silly Putty. Other issue was getting it stuck in yours or a friends hair ahhh so many funny haircuts. You can now enjoy the craziness in your pocket with the World's Smallest Silly Putty. It comes with 2 eggs and color of eggs very. 



Hot Wheels:
Speed away with the smallest Hot Wheels Cars EVER! These tiny, die-cast Hot Wheels are small enough to fit onto a quarter. They are available in the classic styles of Bone Shaker, Twin Mill and Roger Dodger. Included in the iconic original Hot Wheels package is a unique carrying and display case. I loved and still LOVE Hot Wheels, I collected them up until my kids found and opened :( but they now are starting to collect them as well. One thing I remembered was Micro Machines which I this Hot Wheel is way smaller than they were.  



Gumby & Pokey:
Are you ready for timeless adventures and limitless fun? Gumby is a powerful, widely recognized and global pop culture icon that enchants generation after generation. Bend Gumby in any way you deem possible and watch him return to his original shape! Each package includes Gumby and his trusty horse Pokey. Ages: 8+ Wow now this is a throwback, my youngest kids have no clue as to who Gumby is and yet I remember watching the show while growing up and eating breakfast. My kids have enjoyed watching and laughing at how different my childhood was from theirs. 



Pez:
Yes Pez are still around today but they are much bigger and don't fit well in your pocket. The World's Smallest Pez Dispenser Collectable, fits perfectly in your pocket. Comes in the 2 classics of Pez Boy and Peter Pez styles.

You can relive your childhood with the World's Smallest products from Super Impulse and the best part is because they are so small you can store your whole childhood in your purse, drawer, small candy tin, etc. I really love the World's Smallest you can look for them at your local toy store and retail locations, which now watch for the World's Smallest blind bags!

A Smile can go a long ways


Smiling is one of the best and most simple ways to prevent bullying. As your child prepares to head back to school, GEDC would like to share the following tips with you to ensure your children, know how to combat bullying:

1. Simply smile. A simple smile is all it takes to begin a friendship. Encourage your child to smile at their peers when they head back to school - especially those that are the target of bullies. This simple gesture can help someone in need. If your child is the one being bullied, help them understand that most bullies are just looking for a reaction. Encourage them to simply smile instead of getting worked up in an effort to get bullies to leave them alone.


2. Get crafty. For bullied students, heading back to school can cause great anxiety. Spend some time with your child before school begins and create a craft that they can hand out to their classmates in an effort to make everyone feel included. GEDC recommends adding beads to a safety pin as a “friendship charm” – a perfect addition to a backpack or pencil case.


3. Stand up to bullies. If your student sees someone being bullied, educate them on how to stand up against a bully. Most bullies feel foolish after being confronted. After confronting the bully, encourage your child to reach out to a teacher or trusted adult to report the behavior.


4. Treat others the way you want to be treated. This tip is nothing new, but can be very powerful. As back to school season begins, take time to talk with your children on how to respect their peers and use their smile to comfort others and make friends.

Having a smile on your face really can go a long way, it shows you are confident as well, this is not only a great way to help kids with bullies but also a great way for adults to get further in life. Look on Great Expressions Dental Centers site to find a location near you.

Golden Bell Games a new way to enjoy family game time


Nowadays there really is so much garbage on tv I mean really like where do these cartoons? come from. It blows my mind that kids think that a walking stick making rude and just wrong comments is funny. Let's just say comics and cartoons are nothing like when I was growing up, when artist really were artist they took pride in every detail and script.


Golden Bell is bring back the realistic of enjoying your comics and more. Let's see where to start. Well when I was growing up we always looked forward to our local paper called the Orlando Sentinel which is still printed but half the size and not many people purchase because well you can Google everything. Anyhow we looked forward to it because for my parents they would get caught up on the local news and for me it was the Sunday comics! They were a great way to start the day and possibly the only thing I ever read all the way. Golden Bell Sunday Comics, are fun bright color, printed yes PRINTED comics, just like back in the day.

Golden Bell has a HUGE line of entertaining out of the box games here are a few which we got to try out as a family.

Mr Game!:
Mr. Game!™ begins like any other board game until cards with bad ideas come into play. These cards change the game in unpredictable ways. Bend the game to your advantage or mess with other players! Whether you win by accident or you lose on purpose, Mr. Game!™ flips regular board games upside-down! This game is one which you have to focus and pay very close attention because one roll can make or break you. A example is your 2 spaces away from the goal the next person plays gets a card which reads they can change the goal, yes they can change where the game will end! So now you went from almost winning to just starting over! This game was extremely fun with my older children because of its complexity it is recommended for ages 12 and up and can be played with 4 to 8 players which is great for a big family like mine because its is hard to find games with more than 4 players.


Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule!:
Designed by David Luis Sanhueza and illustrated by Mike Maihack, Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule! is a card game of rhyme and reason for kids of all ages. For a long, long time, goblins and fairies have lived in a magical world right beneath our noses. Today, a gang of mischievous goblins escaped from the fairy ring, and it is up to you to send them back before they cause trouble! But an ancient spell of rhymes threatens to transform goblins into fairies and fairies into goblins. This beautifully illustrated game will put your rhyming and problem solving skills to the test. Experience something magical! This is a 96 piece puzzle that is double sided making it all the more challenging. My kids and I love puzzles, my mom has had me doing puzzles since I was 4 and she even now always has a 1000 or more pieced puzzle out that we all work on when visiting. It is a great way to spend the day relaxing and watching as a whole new world forms before your eyes. Because of this puzzle being double sided you choose which you wish to build, will the fairies stand out or will the goblins sneak out from hiding the choice is yours.

Keys to the Capital:
Can you name all 50 state capitals? With Keys to the Capitals, unlock the ability to master the state capitals and state flags in one fun board game for the whole family! Fly around in your custom airplane, collecting the most key cards to win. Building your knowledge has never been more fun. I seriously hated history in school and even now it kinda drives me nuts, but my husband on the other hand loves history so he already knows a lot more than the average. I enjoyed this game because for once I had a upper hand on him because I was already playing this with my older kids who wow they do pay attention in school :) So this was a great way to show off my skills and knowledge by kicking his butt in this game of capitals. It is a great way to teach your kids also so they have a head start when in school. My kids loved the airplane tokens/pawns they thought they are super cute and fun. My middle kid who loves all things action figures used the planes to "fly" around King Kong. So this game had more purposes in this family than just the one.


Robots On The Line:
Robots On The Line Robots on the Line is a creative game for 2 to 4 players where you build and sell robots. It's a perfect balance of fun and strategy. It's great for casual and hardcore players alike. The basic mechanic revolves around robot parts moving down two conveyor belts on the production line. Players take turns pulling robot parts (heads, bases, arms, hands, batteries, antennas and magnets). As players collect parts they are able to build robots throughout the game and once they've met requirements they can sell the robots and earn money. The game ends when all tiles are off the line or when a player builds 4 robots. The player with the most money at the end of the game wins. What kid doesn't like robots? I mean they are super cool, you can add almost anything to them and if they go crazy you just shut them down. This was a fun game for sure, you compete in creating a robot to meet supply and demand. You can have a customer who wishes to have a robot with no head, or arms or have 2 heads and 4 arms, so this game always keeps you busy to create and follow instructions so you can sell your robot you have created. My kids loved this game and have come back to it many times because they enjoy seeing how big they can just get their robot to be.


Cauldron:
Cauldron is a board game of competitive alchemy for 2 – 5 players. It’s a potent brew of the things we love most in a game – simple but highly strategic game mechanics, lots of variability, some chance, all presented beautiful artwork. We love the folklore around potion brewing, and our passion shows in the little things that make this game so enjoyable. Please help us make it happen! 

Choose to play as one of seven aspiring brewers, and battle to become the Grand Infusionist.

Every Grand Infusionist takes a different path to victory. Will you grow your magic or spend it? Will your potions prove powerful enough? Can you slow down your enemies with a well-timed spell? 

Simple yet deep - Cauldron is simple enough for new gamers, yet rich enough for seasoned veterans. 

Highly interactive – Ignore your opponents at your peril. To win, you must watch them, anticipate their moves and thwart their plans. 

Exciting and fun – We have play-tested Cauldron for more than a year to ensure that perfect balance that makes a game, above all else, fun to play every time. 

If you enjoy the resource collecting mechanics of Lords of Waterdeep mixed with the wacky take-that of Munchkin - you will love Cauldron. 

This family loves movies like Lord of the Rings, War of Worlds and more, along with games like Risk, Magic, WOW, etc, so Cauldron was right up our alley. Cauldron is a combination of all this things mentioned above, it has the trill of what you watch in the movies, the looks of the games, and the strategy of all. This is a game which keeps you alert and thinking of your next move, it is extremely fun and keeps you entertained for some time.
