CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ ThermaCELL Electronic Mosquito Area Repellent Review & Giveaway!!

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

 

 

 

Now that sum­mer is here, most of us spend a lot of time out­doors whether it’s in the warm sun­shine, or sit­ting under a porch or an awning while it’s raining.

Along with sum­mer comes those pesky bugs, namely mosquitoes!!

I am one of those peo­ple who get’s picked on and bit­ten the most by those damn mos­qui­toes, I am unsure of why they love me so much, but they swarm around me no mat­ter what! I have even been out at camp in the bush pick­ing blue­ber­ries and those darn things have bit­ten through my track pants and t-shirt!

I was con­vinced that there would never be a cure-all, but thanks to the Ther­ma­CELL Elec­tronic Mos­quito Area Repel­lent — the mos­qui­toes have diminished!!

 

 

 

 

Not only are mos­qui­toes both­er­some, one must also worry about the dreaded West Nile Virus!

 

West Nile virus is a dis­ease spread by mosquitoes.

 

The West Nile virus is a type of virus known as a fla­vivirus. Researchers believe West Nile virus is spread when a mos­quito bites an infected bird and then bites a person.

 

Although many peo­ple are bit­ten by mos­qui­toes that carry West Nile virus, most do not know they’ve been exposed. Few peo­ple develop severe dis­ease or even notice any symp­toms at all.

 

Risk fac­tors for devel­op­ing a more severe form of West Nile virus include:

 

•Con­di­tions that weaken the immune sys­tem, such as HIV, organ trans­plants, and recent chemotherapy

 

•Older or very young age

 

•Preg­nancy

 

West Nile virus may also be spread through blood trans­fu­sions and organ trans­plants. It is pos­si­ble for an infected mother to spread the virus to her child through breast milk.

 

Symp­toms

 

Mild dis­ease, gen­er­ally called West Nile fever, may cause some or all of the fol­low­ing symptoms:

 

•Abdom­i­nal pain

 

•Diar­rhea

 

•Fever

 

•Headache

 

•Lack of appetite

 

•Mus­cle aches

 

•Nau­sea

 

•Rash

 

•Sore throat

 

•Swollen lymph nodes

 

•Vom­it­ing

 

These symp­toms usu­ally last for 3 — 6 days.

 

More severe forms of dis­ease, which can be life threat­en­ing, may be called West Nile encephali­tis or West Nile menin­gi­tis, depend­ing on what part of the body is affected.

If you’re going to be out­side you need a Ther­ma­cell Elec­tronic Mos­quito Area Repel­lent. All I can say is wow. This thing is amaz­ing! I took it out on our first trip to the cot­tage this year and it’s been a really warm spring where the black flies were all over the place. I turned this thing on and within 5 min­sutes there was not one fly in sight. UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!! I hate mosquito’s as well, and their were none in sight while this device was on! I’m really impressed, and so happy that I was sent one for review! My hus­band said that this was a God-send, and he told me that we need a few more for camp, as well as for when he goes on fish­ing and his yearly hunt­ing trips! You can pur­chase these babies right at the ThermaCELL.com web­site, as well as at a lot of the big box stores such as Cana­dian Tire, Home Depot, Wal­mart, and even on Amazon.com!

 

 

 

 

 

I def­i­nitely give the Ther­ma­CELL Elec­tronic Mos­quito Area Repel­lent device a huge thumbs up, and absolutely rec­om­mend that every­one own a hand­ful of these, they are that phenomenal!

Their cus­tomer ser­vice skills as well as their deliv­ery time were also beyond outstanding!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ BABAR: THE CLASSIC SERIES: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON Review & Giveaway!!

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

 

 

 

While first appear­ing in His­toire de Babar, Jean de Brunhoff’s 1931 sto­ry­book clas­sic based on a tale that his wife Cecile had invented for their chil­dren, Babar the Ele­phant has, for 80 years, cap­ti­vated absolutely mil­lions around the globe. The story of the lit­tle ele­phant that leaves the jun­gle, vis­its a big city and returns to bring the ben­e­fits of civ­i­liza­tion to his fel­low ele­phants has been cap­tured in a mul­ti­tude of best-selling books (tens of mil­lion sold world­wide, and more than 1000 titles in print), motion pic­tures and ani­mated series, includ­ing “Clas­sic Babar”.

Orig­i­nally seen on HBO, these won­der­fully ani­mated sto­ries — 13 episodes in all, per­fect for the whole fam­ily and never before avail­able together as a com­plete sea­son — fol­low Babar, his fam­ily and friends under­tak­ing many chal­lenges and adven­tures, all while teach­ing the most valu­able les­son of all: despite life’s chal­lenges, great things are pos­si­ble if one never gets dis­cour­aged. As Babar says, “Long live happiness!”

 

 

 

 

Babar is a young lit­tle ele­phant who under­goes many chal­lenges and adven­tures. How­ever, Babar always finds the strength to rise above dif­fi­culty and search out every cloud’s sil­ver lin­ing. Babar is crowned king of the ele­phants, plans and builds Celesteville, and becomes a daddy him­self. And he learns the great­est les­son of all: despite life’s chal­lenges, great things are pos­si­ble if one never gets dis­cour­aged. As a young boy, Babar wit­nesses the slaugh­ter of his mother by a hunter and flees from the Great For­est to the city, where he is cared for by a very sweet Old Lady. Babar learns the work­ings of the world and returns to ele­phant land full of ideas for progress in his land. The ele­phant elders see that Babar has become wise beyond his years and crown him as the New King of ele­phant land!!

 

 

 

 

 

We were tick­led pink when we found out that we were to going to review BABAR: THE CLASSIC SERIES: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON on DVD. The chil­dren spent lit­er­ally hours watch­ing this DVD and enjoyed every minute of it!

Enter­tain­ment One (eOne) is one of the largest music and video dis­tri­b­u­tion com­pa­nies in Canada! They were so kind pro­vid­ing me with BaBar, the com­plete first sea­son on DVD. I also was able to watch a lot of this DVD, and I per­son­ally loved it just as much as the kids! Note of Warn­ing: The first episode of Babar con­tains a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of death that may dis­turb some sen­si­tive younger view­ers, although it didn’t even don on the kids here! :)

Treat your entire fam­ily to these time­less BaBar sto­ries that have enchanted, enter­tained and informed gen­er­a­tions of chil­dren from all over the world!

 

These are great DVD’s for bed­time, play­time, or even quiet time! {There is such a thing when these are in the DVD Player, believe me!}
These beau­ti­ful and faith­fully ani­mated sto­ries bring out the magic of the great­est children’s lit­er­a­ture to life!

 

 

 

 

BaBar was cer­tainly wel­comed into our house­hold, and has cre­ated won­der­ful mem­o­ries for years to come!

I give this Sea­son One a huge thumbs up, and the kidlets can hardly wait for me to order the cor­re­spond­ing BaBar DVD’s!
