DIY Stenciled Easter Basket

The other day I was looking for Easter baskets at Walmart.  There was no shortage!  They had Easter baskets in all sizes, materials, styles, and prices.  They ranged any where from $0.88 to over $5.00, and that's just for the basket.  As to be expected the fancier the basket the more expensive it was.  Well I didn't want to pay more that $5 for a cute little basket that had hundreds exactly like it, and of course the cheap plain ones just wouldn't do.  So I thought why not buy a cheap ...

DIY Football Post for Your Backyard or Football Party

We're having a Football themed party for my grandson Devon's 9th. birthday next month.  It's being held at our neighborhood rec field so the kids will have plenty of space to run and play. One of the games planned for this event is an obstacle course and we thought it would be fun to have a football post! Unfortunately the rec field doesn't have  full size football posts and I have no intention of spending any money to buy one.  (Yes there's a plastic football goal set available from ...

Sterilizing your pet refers to the neutering of male animals or spaying of females.  Both procedures effectively render the animal unable to reproduce.  Sterilizing your pet means they will undergo surgical procedures done by a vet while the pet is under general anesthesia and intubated (a breathing tube is inserted in the ...

Kids and Allergies – Interview with Dr. Shahzad Mustafa

I don't know if anyone but me has noticed, but it seems that there are more people with allergies these days, specially children.

So why do all my grandkids have so many ...
