Movies: "Cave of Forgotten Dreams"

Movies: "Cave of Forgotten Dreams"

 

By all accounts, “Conan” is a bloody bomb, “Fright Night” lacks fangs and “One Day” is another weepy romance, which is fine, I suppose, if you’re in the mood for one.  Fortunately, there’s something entirely different available on the big screen right now:  a breathtaking cinematic connection to the earliest-known artists who ever walked the earth.

 

What You Should Know About Sitelinks

Have you ever heard of “sitelinks?” Sitelinks are those extra list of links that you see below a main search result in the Google search engine. [See my example of sitelinks below where I searched for "maine popcorn"] Google’s secret algorithm determines whether sitelinks will appear under a particular search result or not. The idea behind sitelinks is to give the user an easier way to immediately navigate to interior pages of the site within that search result. Although they have been around for a while now they have changed, and continue to change announcing their most recent update this week.

Filling a meat bird feeder with a tube/chute!

The meat birds are growing fast and I wanted to share my method for adding feed to their feeder.  I made two feeders from a 4 foot section of PVC pipe split lengthwise.  Each half is then suspended from a single rope that goes through two pulleys.  This allows the feeders to remain inside the chicken tractor at all times which is helpful when moving the tractor.  The feed is then poured into each feeder through a long tube that starts at 1 1/2 inches at one end and steps up to three inch PVC pipe at the other end.  This allows me to fill each feeder from the outside of the coop which means I don't have to go INSIDE.  Believe me that's a plus!  The pulleys allow me to adjust the height of the feeders as the chics grow.  The pulleys also allow the feeders to self level.   Overall the system works pretty well and was fairly low cost to make.  Enjoy the video!

America's Favorite LivingSocial Deals

America's Favorite LivingSocial Deals

Have you ever wondered if anyone actually purchased that LivingSocial deal for botox or pole dancing that you remember reading in bed while you were checking your emails before you got in the shower? They had 24 hours to make the choice and according to this week's release by Living Social of their 2nd Quarter report [April - June], it is certain that these deals were and are being scooped up by the thousands! I am a huge fan of a great deal as most of you already know and think that paying retail for anything, especially for food, fitness & entertainment is completely unnecessary.

I found the 2nd Quarter information quite interesting because it’s interesting to see what deals Americans’ are obsessed with, as well as the trends in the marketplace.

Movies: "The Help"

Movies: "The Help"

 

It was a different world not so long ago.  

 

Privileged white southern women would graduate from college, get married early and inherit the African-American maids (who had raised them) to work in their homes and raise the next generation of privileged children.  In some instances, a maid was passed on to a daughter by a parent’s inheritance, like chattel.  The maids were privy to everything that went on in their white households, but were forbidden from even using the bathroom in the homes they cleaned every day.
