Alligator Baby Relaxing-Florida

Alligator Baby Relaxing-Florida

Relaxing pond-side the other day in our yard was this youngster measuring maybe  3 feet from the tip of his snout to the tip of his tail. I’m guessing here since I wasn’t going out there with a measuring tape.

Why wouldn’t I, you ask? Even a 3 foot alligator has a mouthful of very sharp teeth. I was surprised the egret was so close to him-very brave of him.. The gator didn’t like us taking his picture (maybe he was afraid), and slid back into the pond and submerged himself. We have a series of culverts running from one pond to another in Timber Greens where I live. The gators travel around them like a super-highway.

Alligator Baby Relaxing-Florida

An Alligator Baby Relaxing in Florida is always fun to see. Did you know that alligators are native only to the US and China. They live in freshwater, wetlands and swamps. The gators jaw can clamp down powerfully, but they actually have trouble opening that jaw.  Good to know.

Lightning Safety In Florida

Lightning Safety In Florida

Florida is the Lightning Capital of the nation. If you’re new to Florida, it can be scary during our storms. Here are some tips to stay safe.

TLightning Safety In Floridahe National Weather Service advises us to:

  • Go to a safe shelter indoors (no, trees are not safe shelters) when a storm threatens. But once inside there are precautions you should take.
  • Avoid contact with corded phones, electrical equipment, computers, plumbing, and stay away from windows and open doors. Lightning can travel through any of these pathways.
  • And, wait 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder to go back outside.

 

Lightning Safety in Florida

If you’re caught outdoors:

  • Get off elevated areas (hills, ridges, telephone poles)
  • Get off the golf course.
  • Don’t shelter under an isolated tree.
  • Don’t stand anyway near ponds, or lakes, or any body of water.
  • Stay away from metal fences, power lines, transformer boxes.
  • Don’t put up an umbrella

Lightning in Florida is so beautiful to watch but do it safely. National Weather Service Lightning Hints Click Here.

Is Your Cell Phone Dirty

Is Your Cell Phone Dirty?

Your eating a fast food lunch and your cell phone rings. You have to talk to this person so you hit the screen. Your fingers may have grease or mayo on them. Now you have food on your phone. Food grows bacteria if left to sit for a bit. Now you have germs on your phone. Yuck.

Is Your Cell Phone Dirty?Does anyone remember this guy and his shoe phone. Old Maxwell Smart wasn’t really so smart. I never saw him clean his shoe phone, did you? Is he why we call them smart phones?

Talk is that some cell phones are dirtier than toilets. Sharing your cellphone is never a good idea because while your germs probably won’t hurt you, other people’s can. Remote controls are also germ incubators, shopping cart handles, and the first floor button in elevators, oh heck, all the buttons in an elevator. Let’s not even discuss hospital door knobs or just the air you breath.

But I digress, back to your phone. Is Your Cell Phone Dirty? How do you clean that dirty cell phone. Give your phone a swipe with an anti-bacterial wipe, don’t use a liquid cleaner.  Do this often. You can use a disposable wipe made specifically for electronic devices. There are also UV devices that take a few minutes and cost $100.but a disposable wipe sounds good to me.

That will keep the germ count low on your cell phone. Read more about it here.

Doll Houses – Real Estate

Doll Houses – Real Estate

My mom loved doll houses and used to build  and decorate them. She always had several going at one time. I have built a couple. There is something very fascinating about the world of miniatures. Maybe it has to do with the fact that you can build it, and manipulate the furniture and people. You are in charge.

I have books on doll houses and how to make miniature furniture, food, and all the accoutrements of the doll house. I always wonder what the little people are doing when I look at a doll houses. Maybe it has to do with the fact that you can build it, and manipulate the furniture and people. You are in charge.
