Remember Cross Country USA and other old games?

For years I have been thinking about the games I used to play in elementary school. The games were grainy, and kind of slow...but that didn't matter because they were still so much fun. Then fast forward to today, I saw my brother in law watching a game on his Ipad and it wasn't until I saw a triangle appear on the screen that I realized he wasn't watching a game, he was playing a game. Technology has come so far! Our children…

A SteamVac is a Great Investment if you Have Young Children or Pets

Kids are a parents pride and joy; however, they tend to be good at making messes around the house.  I remember when my oldest son was a baby, he was constantly getting into things that he wasn’t supposed to get into the moment you turned your back for a few seconds or he was off making messes in the house…

Boy, the times have surely changed!

Yesterday, I found myself reminiscing. I was thinking about and appreciating my childhood, old friends and every experience good or bad. I remember going outside to play with my friends. We all had Nintendo and Sega Genesis systems, but those were only played when we had company come over who didn't have their own systems...or we had to be indoors. It wasn't as addictive as games seem to be now…

Once upon a time in a faraway land

Came 4 funny Dutch farmers with a little time on their hands

They knew they were in a…
