Carson Aura NV 200 - Get Ready It's Hurricane Season!

It is hurricane season and the must have item is the Carson Aura NV 200.  It is a pocket sized night vision monocular.

The features of this mini monocular include:
1) It is lightweight
2) You can use in either night or day

ABC Scandal TV Show - Must See!

ABC Scandal TV Show is a must see.  It has it all: drama, comedy, romance, mystery.  There are so many twists and turns to the show.  It always leaving you wanting more.

The season finale was tonight and I must admit.  It was one of the best season finales ever. All questions of the season were answered, but it still added a new question mark as the finale.

I initially watched the first episode and was not too impressed.  Of course, I was doing other things while watching and did not give the show my full attention.  My daughter insisted that I watch the show.  So one night I watched another episode.


I spent the following Saturday catching up on Season 1.

Baby Bike Carrier - Front Mounted For More Fun!

I discovered a front mounted baby bike seat that is very highly rated: Tyke Toter Child Bike Seat

It is called an interactive bike seat because your child is seating in front of you and has a perfect view of the surroundings rather than a perfect view of your back!

Bicycling with the the Tyke Toter Bike Seat is an enjoyable experience for both you and your child.

How The TYKE TOTER Front Mount Child Bicycle Seat Works

Easily installed, the seat comes with its own pair of handlebars and foot rests for your child. All you need to do is clamp the seat to your bike, attach the Velcro footrests, and you are on your way.

It allows you to protect your child while still having control over the bike. The location of the seat allows you to easily balance the bike and handle it better while giving your child a front seat view.

The seat is meant for 2-5 years with a weight limit of 45 pounds.

The Verdict

All the reviews point to one thing: Kids and adults love this bike seat! The seat had absolutely no complaints from any of the reviewers; however, the pedals received a few complaints about their ability to stay in place. Most people were able to fix that issue easily by holding them in place with something underneath.

We highly recommend this bike seat to anyone who has a toddler and enjoys bike riding. Going to picnics, or even school, will never be so much fun!

I first became interested in night binoculars during Hurricane Ike.  It was so dark outside and inside (we had no power for 5 days).  I started researching the topic.

They can be really expensive if you buy the high end brand.   But for my purposes, the cheaper brands work just as well.

Night vision binoculars are not just for military use and are affordable.

There are even toy binoculars for kids!
