A Barbecue Grill You Can Bake Bread In!

I was searching the Internet, and I found a grill that I just have to buy! It's called the Big Green Egg, and it's exactly what I have been looking for. It comes in five different sizes, so I could use the medium size grill for camping, and the extra large for our outdoor barbecues. This grill does everything from grilling veggies and smoking meat, to baking homemade pizza, bread, and pies! These grills are so popular, that they even have a clothing line for the dedicated "Eggheads", and there is a group that meets for the annual "Eggtoberfest".

Nutrition is so important, and this grill is designed to maintain the natural juices and minimize shrinkage. I know how important this is, because I've cooked food that shrank, and ended up not having enough food for everyone! The Big Green Egg is made of ceramic, and stays cooler than metal grills. This makes me feel safer to use around children. It has the same insulation properties as the U.S. space shuttle, so it retains heat.

One of my favorite features of this grill is that you don't need lighter fluid. You can buy several varieties of wood chips that are specifically designed for the Big Green Egg. They also have their own seasoning line. The garlic and pepper seasoning sounds perfect for grilled chicken!

There are so many accessories available with this grill. They offer an electric charcoal starter, remote smoker thermometer, grill gripper, rack cleaner, natural charcoal, and so much more! The flat Baking Stone allows you to actually bake bread or cookies using your grill. They also have a Half Moon Baking Stone for the large and extra large grills, so you can bake on one side and cook on the other.

I love to cook, but I'm not as excited about the clean-up, so fortunately, this grill is easy to clean inside and out. It's also virtually indestructible under normal conditions, and it has an anti-rust and weather proof surface, which is perfect for someone like me who tends to leave things outside once and awhile! I can't wait to see how the bread and cookies turn out!

International Swine Flu Conference

Sunday, August 30, 2009

An International Swine Flu Conference was held in Washington DC, and was attended by distinguished scientists, industry leaders and top health officials from all over the globe. This conference was held to finalize response plans to a swine flu pandemic that has been all but guaranteed to occur this coming fall.

According to a PDF information leaflet released before the meeting, attendees were briefed on how to conduct morgue operations, manage an interruption in food supplies, and manage panic caused by sudden disruption of services and interruptions in essential goods and services.

During a swine flu pandemic, their duties would also include dealing with civil disturbances, controlling and diffusing social unrest and public disorder, carrying out mass vaccination programs and enforcing quarantines, according to the conference documentation.

One of the most shocking modules of the conference deals with “School/University Pandemic Planning” and strongly implies that authorities will usurp parental rights over children in the event of a swine flu pandemic.

Concurrent Breakout Session #10″ outlines plans to “train teachers to screen for symptoms & know what to do when students / teachers fall ill,” before then transporting ill students, which presumably means transporting them to quarantine zones with or without the consent of parents. The use of schools as “shelters” or quarantine centers is also mentioned.

Read the PDF File to see further details of the Summit Meeting.

Silberman's: Outdoor Clothing and Gear

Friday, August 28, 2009

Anyone who works outside in the cold will tell you that the ultimate coveralls are made by Carhartt. They have an arctic lining, and the outer layer is made from 100% cotton duck and is water-repellent. The traditional coat from Carhartt is the perfect way to stay warm when you don't need the coveralls. They both have snaps under the collar to add an optional hood. Carhartt products always receive top reviews from customers at

When it comes to jeans, you can't beat the classics! Everyone has heard of Levi's, and the original 501 button fly is still my favorite. These days, they come in many different cuts, so they'll be comfortable whether you're working or playing. These jeans are so rugged...I still wear my favorite pair from years ago!

Never underestimate the importance of dry feet. When you're working outdoors, you need to protect your feet from the elements, and Rocky Boots are perfect for the job! They're made from water-resistant polishable leather, and Thinsulate Insulation to keep your feet warm and dry. The Mossy Oak Break Up and Steel Toe boots are two of's best sellers.

Protection For Your Patio Furniture

Thursday, August 27, 2009

I love this time of year when it's cool enough for me to go outside and enjoy sitting on the patio. It's relaxing to sit at the patio table and watch my kids play with the their friends, or run around with the dogs. Sometimes we love to eat lunch or have a snack outside. It's been raining a lot, so I think I need to buy some patio furniture covers. I don't want to have to bring in the chairs every time it rains, but I want to protect them so they'll last for years.

I found some great patio furniture covers that will be perfect for covering my table and chairs all together. It will be so easy to just push the chairs in, and cover them up all at once. It will also make it easier for me to get the kids to help cover it up, since it doesn't take much effort! They can't tell me it's too heavy, because it only weighs 10 pounds (I'm pretty sure they can handle it if they work together!)

There's also a cover for table umbrellas, and this will be perfect for me. I dread opening the umbrella after the rain, hoping the rain water doesn't soak everyone as it's opening! Then you have to dry everything that gets wet before you can sit down. The vinyl umbrella cover only weighs 2 pounds, so it's no problem to cover it whenever we're not using it.

My girls want a wicker patio couch, but I have been debating about getting one because I didn't want it to get ruined outside, and I don't want to have to keep bringing it in. Patio furniture covers are available for couches, so I just might be able to talk my husband into getting the couch since I can keep it covered!

Garden Wind Chimes Create Positive Energy

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Whenever I hear the sound of garden wind chimes, it reminds me of being at my mom's house. They're so peaceful, and we like to sit outside on the patio and enjoy their sound. They come in so many beautiful designs, and they complete the look of her garden. Choosing a different hook is another way to change the look of the wind chimes.

The great thing about wind chimes is that there are so many styles to choose from. You can find something for every garden theme. Since my mom had the opportunity to swim with the dolphins, she chose beautiful pewter garden wind chimes with dolphins. She's had them for a long time, and they never tarnish. My husband prefers a delicate sound, so when he visits her, she puts up her butterfly bell chimes made of cast aluminum.

My mom knows how much I love her garden wind chimes, so last time she came to visit, she bought a beautiful set of bamboo chimes for me. I love the natural look and sound of bamboo. They make such a gentle, relaxing sound, and they look pretty in the front yard of our country home.

I love to use natural materials in my garden, so the bamboo chimes are perfect. They're called 'Spirit Winds Mellow Yellow Wind Chimes', and they are so peaceful. They are designed to create a positive energy flow and bring balance, tranquility and healing to any environment. During assembly, a wax procedure is used to protect the bamboo from the elements, and there are no staples, rivets, or spray-on varnishes that would reduce the quality of the chimes.

So take a moment during your busy day to relax and enjoy the peaceful sound of garden wind chimes, and it might help you feel refreshed and relieve some of your stress!

Dry Firewood Makes Starting a Fire Much Easier!

Sunday, August 23, 2009

The time has come once again to start stocking up on wood for the fireplace. Every year I build up the wood pile, but I always wait until it's cold outside to bring in some wood because I don't want it all over the garage floor. This year, I'm going to be prepared! I'm getting a firewood rack so I can have dry firewood when I'm ready to light the fire.

I usually wait until it's freezing outside before I bring in the wood, which is now covered with snow and too wet to burn! The great thing about using a firewood rack is that I can store some of the wood neatly in my garage so I don't have to get bundled up and go outside just to get wood that isn't even dry enough to use. Another great thing about using a rack, is that when the wood is off the ground, it helps keep down on the bugs! I'm also thinking about getting one of the smaller firewood racks for the house so I don't even have to go out to the garage late at night to keep the fire burning.

Burning wood in the fireplace is a great way to conserve propane, so I try to keep a fire going almost every day during the winter. When I burn wood on a regular basis, I only have to fill our propane tank about once a year. I live in an underground home, and the fireplace is designed to heat every room in the house, so having dry wood on hand is very important.

Wood haulers are great for carrying wood through the yard so I don't hurt my back. It might not seem like a big deal to carry a few pieces of wood, but when you need several loads, it makes it much easier to be able to carry more wood in each load, and make less trips when you can load it up in a wood hauler and wheel it to the house. So this year we're going to have plenty of dry firewood ready to help keep us warm and cozy!

Relaxing Around the Fire Pit

Friday, August 21, 2009

One of my favorite things about living in the country is going out in our backyard and sitting around a fire on a cool night. I love the sound of a crackling fire while looking at the stars on a clear night. Many of our friends enjoy relaxing out here in the quiet of the country, and we spend many nights during the spring and fall roasting marshmallows and hot dogs around the Sojoe Fire Pit. Sometimes we just love to sit and relax after a long day and just enjoy the fire.

The Sojoe Fire Pit comes with a spark screen, so I feel safe when my children and their friends are near the fire. I love the look of the Natural Rustic finish, and my favorite style is the Willow Crane. It also comes in other styles including: Star and Moon, Kokopelli, or Wildlife design. These designs are great because they allow air to flow and ventilate the smoke which makes it enjoyable to sit close the fire.

Another great feature of the Sojoe Fire Pit is that it has a safety ring around the rim, and you can use this to carry it from one place to another. It only weighs 65 pounds, so it can easily be moved if you want to take it with you when you go camping, or you feel like moving it somewhere else in your yard.

Since we love to spend a lot of time around the fire in the evenings, we need something that will last, and we were confident knowing that this fire pit is built to last. It has a two year guarantee, and is made from cold-rolled steel, and is made to last for many years. So if it's a nice out this evening, we'll be outside relaxing in front of the fire, and watching the stars!

Keep extra linens on hand for those unavoidable accidents!

Benefits of Dark Chocolate

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

Good news for chocolate lovers! Dark chocolate in moderation is actually good for you. Dark chocolate contains antioxidants which help rid the body of free radicals, destructive molecules that have been linked to heart disease and other ailments.

Dark chocolate retains 95% of its flavonoids, which act as antioxidants. Standard processing procedures destroy up to half of the flavonoids in milk chocolate. Dark chocolate contains nearly 8 times more flavonoids than strawberries. Flavonoids also help balance hormones, and reduce mildly elevated blood pressure. Research indicates that dark chocolate may reduce LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) by up to 10 percent.

Studies reveal that the benefits of antioxidants are lost when dark chocolate is eaten with milk. Mauro Serafini, PhD, of Italy's National Institute for Food and Nutrition Research in Rome states, "Our findings indicate that milk may interfere with the absorption of antioxidants from chocolate ... and may therefore negate the potential health benefits that can be derived from eating moderate amounts of dark chocolate."

So the next time you get a craving for chocolate, there's no need to feel guilty about enjoying a little dark moderation of course!

Outdora Presents: Music of the Spheres Wind Chimes

Saturday, August 15, 2009

Sit back, relax, and allow yourself to be carried away by the mesmerizing symphony of the Music of the Spheres wind chimes. These beautiful hand-made wind chimes were developed in 1989, and are known as the Stradivarius of wind chimes. Attention to detail is essential, and custom manufactured tempered aluminum tubing ensures that your Garden Wind Chimes withstand the elements and remain rust-free. They are hung from tough synthetic cordage that is resistant to abrasion.

These incredible wind chimes give you the ability to customize the melody to suite your mood. Simply adjust or move the windcatcher to capture the symphony that compliments the moment. They are created in six sizes, and span four octaves that come in eleven musical scales including: Pentatonic, Mongolian, Quartal, Westminster, Chinese, Hawaiian, Gypsy, Japanese, Aquarian, Balinese, and Whole Tone. Enjoy an audio sample of each sound by visiting the Outdora website.

The 30" Soprano is the smallest model, followed by the Mezzo, Alto, Tenor, Bass, Contra Bass, and finally, the granddaddy of them all, the 14' Basso Profundo. The Soprano is designed to produce a delicate yet brilliant sound, while the Basso Profundo produces a deep profound voice with unparalleled sustain. The latest technology is used to precisely tune each wind chime according to the standard orchestral pitch.

The windcatcher, created with the same material and finish of the tubes, is designed to achieve optimal performance in 8-10 mph winds. By sliding the clapper up the central cord and into the ring, you may turn your chimes 'on' and 'off' during strong winds. Music of the Spheres wind chimes are protected by a 7-15 year warranty, depending on the model. A rigorous final inspection is performed on all chimes to ensure high standards of visual and acoustic quality. Outdora offers free ground shipping to customers in the contiguous United States. These superior chimes have received a perfect 5 star rating by satisfied customers.

Traditional Martial Arts: Perfection of Character

Thursday, August 13, 2009

Many people say that they don't want their children to participate in karate because they believe it's too violent. Traditional Martial Arts teach that peaceful alternatives or solutions can be found for almost any conflict. Such thinking sounds boring because there is no "thrill of victory." For this reason, all of the hype surrounding the Martial Arts is focused on modern karate. When karate is criticized as too violent, it's due to all Martial Arts and martial artists being put in the same group. Such generalities do a disservice to the traditional Martial Arts.

Another misconception some people have is that in order to study karate, they must also study Eastern religious philosophies. Traditional Martial Arts develop the creativity to approach all kinds of human interaction uniquely and effectively. The benefits of traditional Martial Arts training, unlike modern training, cannot be easily described; they have to be experienced. True karate is a life-long journey of the perfection of character.

People choose to study the art of karate for many reasons. Some are seeking to learn self-defense, while others may simply wish to get in shape. Choosing the right martial arts school is an important decision. Visit several schools and learn which teaching style best suits your desire. Take the time to understand the instructor's teachings on discipline, and self-control. Many people enjoy additional benefits such as: physical coordination, better health and fitness, discipline, improved concentration, and decreased aggression.

People who get in a fight, any kind of fight, do so because they feel they have to prove something about themselves that has been untested or is unknown to them. The accomplished martial artist will create alternatives to violent conflict. When push comes to shove, the accomplished martial artist feels no shame in being shoved. There is no reason to prove what he or she already knows. He or she can walk away knowing that had there been a fight, he or she would have won. For children, such knowledge can be empowering. At a time when they are especially vulnerable to peer pressure as well as the internal pressures of finding their own limitations, Martial Arts instills within them the awareness that there are always options in any given situation.

Who is Mother Goose?

Is there anything sweeter and more innocent than watching children dance while they sing their favorite nursery rhyme? Well, that depends on who you ask. There are almost as many theories on the origins of Mother Goose and nursery rhymes, as there are rhymes themselves.

The most widely accepted theory is that 'Mother Goose' was actually a woman named Elizabeth Goose who lived in the late 1600's. After years of listening to Elizabeth sing to her grandchildren, her son-in-law, Thomas Fleet, published Mother Goose's Melodies in 1720.

Another popular theory is that 'Mother Goose' was actually a witch. Early drawings depict her with a pointy nose, glasses, and witch hat. The origins and hidden meanings of many of today's most well known nursery rhymes are used to support this theory.

While the true origin of Mother Goose remains a mystery, it does make me wonder why songs such as "London Bridge is Falling Down", and "Ring Around the Rosie" are so easily accepted as fun songs for the children. Guarantees Satisfaction on Sandals

Antibacterial Soap Does More Harm Than Good

Sunday, August 2, 2009

Antibacterial cleansers are designed for use in hospitals and clinics, not for use in the homes of healthy people. Dan Chang, PhD, a professor of environmental engineering at U.C. Davis, reports that antibacterial products may do more harm than good. Regular washing with soap and water is sufficient to wash away dirt and germs. Repeatedly washing with alcohol sanitizers causes skin cells to break down, allowing skin to become increasingly susceptible to harmful bacteria and other organisms. Chemicals in antibacterial soap such as triclosan and triclocarban have the potential to affect sex hormones and interfere with the nervous system.

Spraying counter tops and other surfaces with antibacterial cleanser causes some chemicals to linger, continuing to kill some bacteria, but not all of them. This allows the remaining bacteria to build up a tolerance and become resistant. Good bacteria lives on our skin, and antibacterial cleansers kill the beneficial bacteria as well. We need these bacteria to fight off disease causing germs and common infections.

The traditional advice is still the best. Wash hands with soap and warm water for at least 15-20 seconds. Make sure to scrub between your fingers and under fingernails. Always use a clean, dry towel, to dry hands completely. Natural cleansers are best as many soaps may also contain harsh, drying chemicals. Last but not least...keep your hands out of mucous membranes!
