Since carnivals aren't allowed by NYS Governor, let's support the local fire depts. Look them up online, some have donation pages or send them a check for what you would spend if they had it. Carnivals and parades are a way for the fire dept. to raise much needed funds, don't let them down. Thank you.

The Mia Foundation

The Mia Foundation takes in dozens of animals born with deformities with the goal of giving them a chance at a life. 

The following is brought to you by our Senior Writer, Editor and Self-Proclaimed Boss Of All Things...


"Remind your children of these basic animal safety tips especially with animals they are not familiar with and make sure they know to NEVER approach an animal they do not know:

Avoid the face and head area when petting dogs and cats. 

Leave animals alone when eating, sleeping, chewing on a toy, or caring for its babies.

Refrain from loud, high-pitched screams or noises and sudden movements that may startle an animal.

Always ask permission from an animal's owner before attempting to pet or befriend the animal.

These might seem like common sense safety tips but when a child sees a dog as cute as I am, well, sometimes they are so in awe they forget common sense.  As their master...please remind them!" - Wishbone

INTRODUCING:  THE GPS 2.0: THE ULTIMATE WIRE FREE PET FENCE SOLUTION.                     Exclusive to Invisible Fence.



Wire Free-Worry Free.  GPS 2.0 containment technology is the most advanced pet fence on the market. You can set customized boundaries in the size and shape that you choose.  No digging. And best of all, no limits, but the ones you choose.  It’s a whole new way to live with your pet, and it’s only from Invisible Fence!

How it Works------The GPS-based system doesn’t require wire to be buried around your property. You determine the boundaries and they are set on a computer by a GPS technician.

Your pet’s GPS 2.0 Mobile Collar receiver communicates with a base unit placed discreetly in the highest point of your home.  The base unit improves the accuracy and response of your pet’s GPS 2.0 Mobile collar receiver.

If your pet approaches the designated boundary, the custom-programmed GPS 2.0 Mobile Collar receiver delivers a warning tone as a reminder to encourage him to turn back.  If necessary, the collar provides a gentle but effective static correction.

Most pets learn very quickly, and rarely test their new boundaries.  They are busy and happy enjoying their freedom. Click below for more information on all Invisible Fence Products

The kids cannot wait to be out of school and if you are like most Moms you are already stockpiling ideas to keep them busy this summer.  Here is an inexpensive, fun, easy project that you can put together fairly quickly.  Warning...the kids will play with it for hours so add a lounge chair and a good book to the set up plan.

The project is to make a Water Blob.  A what?  A Water Blob!  A big blob of water that the kids will crawl on, play on, roll on, and have a great time on for hours!  We came across this Water Blob blog (Clumsy Crafter is the name of the blog) and thought it was fantastic.  You MUST visit the blogger's page to see more images and get detailed instruction, tips and suggestions.  Click on Method 1 to see how to make the Water Blob with Duct Tape.  Click on Method 2 to see how to iron the edges for a tougher seal.  Either way, the Water Blob is bound to be a hit!

Method 1

Method 2 

There are all kinds of images if you google 'Water Blob' and all kinds of instructions but we found Clumsy Crafter did a super job explaining the art of making a Water Blob!
