Some Really Handy Products


I saw these ads on Facebook a couple of days ago and thought they were a fantastic idea.
The first one is an Electronic Mosquito Killer/Bug Zapper, USB Powered Silent Non-toxic UV LED Mosquito Lamp with Built in Fan Mosquito Catcher Trap for Baby Good Sleep. (Their words). For me I think its a brilliant idea. I have not seen one before and maybe they have been around a while but for me its a first time. Its product name is FANXIAOKJ. It is advertised for US$18.99 . I think they are about AUD $30. They can be bought on Amazon

 

The second one is the Travelon Bag Bungee– If you are like me you travel a lot and find that extra hand bag for travel on board, is a pain in the butt and this bungee is brilliant to be able to strap it on the top of your carry on.
This also is on Amazon for the price of US$10.95 probably about AUD$18.

Did You Know – 11/20/2017

 

 

  1. A captive killer whale at MarineLand discovered it could regurgitate fish onto the surface of the water, attracting seagulls and then eat the birds. Four others then learned to copy the behavior.

2. Fiji Water once ran an ad that stated: “The label says Fiji because it’s not bottled in Cleveland.” The Cleveland water department took offense, so they challenged the statement, commissioned a test, and proved that Fiji water had more impurities in it.

3. Sound changes when it snows. It seems quieter right after a snowfall because a blanket of fresh powder is absorbing the sound waves- but once the snow melts and refreezes, it then creates a reflective surface that amplifies sound by allowing it to travel farther than normal.

4. The official border between Belgium and the Netherlands runs through living rooms, yards and cafés, so it’s possible – indeed, it happens more often than you’d think – to sit across a table having a cup of coffee with someone who is actually in a different country.

For a while, a Dutch law requiring dining establishments to close earlier than they did in Belgium. At closing time in the Netherlands, patrons would have to get up and move tables, over to the Belgian side.

Poem Friday – Nothing Like A Pill to Rid One’s Ill’s

Nothing Like A Pill To Rid One’s Ill’s
Author Lesley Voth

Do you know I have been sick in bed
Feeling lousy like someone is pounding in my head

Well that was ok I got over it in a week
Felt pretty good, fantastic so to speak

So good in fact I celebrated with a drink a cigar
Oh boy, felt so good, smooth so it was quite bazaar

That next morning I was coughing, it was not a pretty sight
Not much sleep, my chest felt like someone was sanding in there all night

Yep that flu what ever it was is back again
I guess only me, no one else to blame

Bit grumpy I am, certainly not nice to be around
Dave my husband, hiding, quite hard to be found

Now, I am a really healthy, no pills for me, sort
Well I have to tell you, my idealism right now has fallen a little short

So off to the doctors I went today
Told her I want it gone, straight away

She gave me some tablets, some killer pills
Hopefully it will quickly take care of my ills

It is a long time since I have had the flu
Makes you appreciate a healthy body that is true

So hopefully tomorrow I will be feeling good
Feeling all healthy and ready to go as I should

You can consume all those vitamins, a battle uphill
But there is nothing like the good old Anti Biotic Pill
