Liquid Chalkers #BackToSchool

Image
We received some Liquid Chalkers, and it was just in time for a wedding! We painted/wrote on the car and it was fun, and cool! Plus, Callan can use these for school projects, and so much more! We got Bright White. The Liquid Chalkers go on easily and then wipes off with a damp cloth. They have hyper pigmentation ensuring bright, beautiful colors with marker tips that don't dry out or crack. The true 6mm chisel tip marker means you can write with precision and easily fill large areas as well. It is dustless, causes no smearing, and there will be no ink running down your surface while you write - so it's mess free!

Summer In February

Image
An epic true story of love and betrayal, Summer in February features Dominic Cooper, Dan Stevens, and Emily Browning. Summer in February follows the early life and love of 20th Century equestrian painter Sir Alfred Munning before his rise to acclaim. Adapted from the book by Jonathan Smith, Summer in February is set in an idyllic artist colony in England, 1913, as the world stands on the brink of war. When fledgling artist Munning (Cooper) and his best friend Gilbert (Stevens) meet the beautiful Florence Carter-Wood (Browning), romance soon blossoms between Munning and Carter-Wood. However, Gilbert finds that he is falling in love with her as well. As the country is brought to its knees with the start of the World War I, the deeply moving film follows the heartbreaking love triangle that ensues to its tragic result.
This is a great movie. I did not think I was going to like it, because I generally do not like era pieces, but this was great! Get a tissue!

A Taste of Comfort Foods #cascadeshiningreviews - Cascade Platinum Party 1 #Giveaway

Image
Thanks to Cascade Platinum and Double Duty Divas I am able to host two awesome cooking parties! Cooking, eating, having fun and letting my party guests witness first-hand the powerful cleaning ability of Cascade Platinum. Each guest will get to take home a full size Cascade Platinum and Cascade Platinum Rinse Aid as a thank you for coming, plus yummy food and good company! Here are some great tips shared by Cascade Platinum: Skip the pre-wash. It’s true! This is a key step for success in the dishwashing process, and just about everyone gets it wrong! Here’s why you need to skip the pre-wash: Cascade Platinum works best when food soil is left on dishes because its special enzymes latch onto that food, breaking it down so it can wash away. If there’s no food soil, there’s nothing for the enzymes to attach to and your detergent isn’t working its hardest for you.
In lieu of any pre-washing, simply toss the large bits of food into the trash or garbage disposal and …

Ebola's Scary Cousins

Did you know that Ebola is what is known as a zoonotic disease? As stated by the CDC, “Zoonotic diseases are contagious diseases spread between animals and humans. These diseases are caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi that are carried by animals and insects.” Other examples of zoonotic disease are avian flu, swine flu, malaria and the hantavirus, but the list goes on. It is estimated that 60% of diseases that infect humans are zoonotic diseases.

Old Farm Equipment And Scrap Metal Turned Into Stunning Sculptures

Image
South Dakotan sculptor John Lopez creates life-sized scrap metal sculptures with a uniquely western American twist. In his hands, old discarded farm equipment is recycled into sculptures of iconic creatures from the American West like a bison, a horse plowing a field, or a Texas Longhorn. Lopez already had a career as a bronze sculptor, but after creating a family grave for his deceased aunt using scrap metal, he began creating recycled metal sculptures out of found or donated pieces of metal as well. "My favorite part about these pieces is the texture," explains Lopez. "I just start grabbin' stuff from the pile and welding it in, and if you weld enough of the same thing on over and over it creates this really cool texture that I've never seen in these kinds of pieces before. I think that's what draws people in."
