The first toy robots emerged after the war in the mid 1940′s. They were friction or clockwork powered and made of stamped steel or tin. The Japanese introduced the classic yellow, Lilliput Tin Robot preceding the Atomic Robot Man which made an appearance at the New York Sci-Fi convention in 1950. Quickly these toys became a big hit with both kids and adults.

About Camping Stoves With Griddles

About Camping Stoves With Griddles 1A camping stove with a griddle – a flat iron pan that fits onto the stove – gives you the chance to deal with foods like canned meals, pancakes, smaller sausages and meats that a regular stove might not be able to handle.

Charcoal

Charcoal camp stoves with a griddle come in two varieties. The first has the griddle built into the stove, while the second uses a griddle that slides into the stove, but comes with other types of cooking surfaces. If you opt for a charcoal stove, you’ll need to purchase the coals in advance of your trip, but you can use any type of charcoal. You’ll also want to bring extra charcoal with you since the amount in the stove will only last for one cooking session.

Propane

Propane camping stoves with a griddle are more popular than charcoal because the attached can of propane lasts longer than a bag of charcoal. Some have the griddle placed on the side away from the burners with an additional heat source underneath the griddle, which allows you to use the burners and griddle at the same time or only use one at a time. Other models use two burners on the main part of the stove, with the griddle placed directly beside the burners. This type of stove uses one main heat source, which heats all burners and the griddle at the same time.

About Camping Stoves With Griddles 1Do It Yourself

If you’re looking for something even more convenient to carry, then you should consider a do-it-yourself method by using a griddle pan like you would use in your home and a campfire. Made of cast iron or aluminum, the pan has a flat surface and two carrying handles. The pan slides directly onto the fire where it heats up slowly until you’re ready to use it. You simply put your food in the pan, which you place back on the fire. This is best for camping in remote areas accessible only by long hikes that make carrying one of the heavier propane or charcoal stoves less than ideal.

Legs

A few versions of griddle stoves come with legs. These stoves otherwise work exactly the same as their tabletop versions, with the advantage that you can set it up in any location. You also have the option of purchasing a stove with a work-space beside it or extra storage underneath the table.

warning

Warning

Avoid smoking around the stove. Ensure that the stove is put together properly and that there are no leaks in the line or tank. Parents should also be alert when small children are around; they can easily burn themselves on the griddle portion, which stays hot even after the stove is turned off.

Top 13 Kids Best Protection & Safe Sunscreens

sunscreamMaybe you noticed that lately I have been complaining a lot about the lack of sunshine and warm weather.

Honestly, yesterday according to my huge wall calendar it was JUNE 8th…… and I was wearing long pants and sweatshirt….that is absolutely ridiculous and will not stand for that.

Do you hear me Mother Nature? Do you?

I figured that if I keep writing about summer stuff Mother Nature will eventually take the hint and some sunshine will come our way as well.

So here it goes…lets talk about SUNSCREENS…..specifically sunscreens that offer the best protection for our children.

If your kids are anything like mine you spend hours and hours telling them over and over until you blue in your face to keep their hats on, wear their sunglasses and drink lots of water.

We all need to pay close attention and protect our kids as well as ourselves from harmful UV rays.

Skin cancer is on the rise and lots of it is from not applying proper sunscreens and not paying attention to protection from sun from an early age.

Therefore……using the proper sunscreen to protect our kids from sun damage is very important.

When using a sunscreen for kids you need to have few things in mind:

#1 Sunscreen is not expired

#2 Make sure the kids sunscreen has the highest SPF available

#3 Sunscreen is water-resistant

#4 Sunscreen for kids is hypoallergenic and fragrance free

#5 Sunscreen provides broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection.

#6 Sunscreen does not contain lots of harmful chemicals

sunscream

Every year before summer starts I do a little research and see what sunscreen protection for kids is available on the market.

I make a list of best sunscreen lotions to protect my kids and I look for sales and coupons, because….have you seen the price of sunscreen lotions lately?

According to my internet research the best and safest sunscreens and sunblocks that have everything that I look for to protect my kids from the sun and keeping them from harmful chemicals at the same time are:

  • Aveeno Baby Natural Protection Mineral Block Face Stick, SPF 50
  • Blue Lizard Baby Australian Suncream, SPF 30
  • Coppertone Kids Pure & Simple Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 50
  • Coppertone WaterBabies Pure & Simple Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 50
  • BabyGanics Cover Up Baby Sunscreen for Face & Body, Fragrance Free, SPF 50+
  • BabyGanics Cover Up Baby Sunscreen Stick, Fragrance Free, SPF 50
  • Badger Baby Sunscreen, SPF 30+
  • COOLA Baby Unscented Natural Mineral Sunblock, SPF 45
  • COOLA MineralBaby Moisturizer Suncare, Unscented, SPF 45
  • UV Natural Baby Sunscreen, SPF 30+
  • Little Forest Sunscreen Lotion For Babies and Kids, SPF 30+
  • Neutrogena Pure & Free Baby Sunblock Stick, SPF 60+

sunscream

For many years Neutrogena and Banana Boat were on top of my list when it came to using sunscreen for myself and my kids, but few days ago I read a post called “Is Your Sunscreen Harming You?” from a Stumble Buddy of mine Heather from With A Side Of Sneakers which made me change my mind.

To make sure your kids are well protected this summer sunscreen can’t do the job on it’s own.

To give your kids maximum sun protection make sure they:

  • put on the sunscreen
  • wear sunglasses
  • put on the hat
  • use sun protection clothing
  • Stay in shade and keep hydrated

How to Choose a Middle-Aged Hedonism Resort

If the idea of having sex on a beach, imbibing nothing but wine, appetizers and dessert and avoiding children like the plague is your idea of a great vacation, you’ll be ready to pack a bathing suit (or not) and take a leave of absence from your job for an erotic romp on the wild side at a hedonism resort. It’s possible to find a destination that caters to middle-aged folks and fits you like a glove if you follow the tips in this article. Just don’t forget to leave your inhibitions and laptop at home, because hedonism resorts are designed to make your fantasies come true, one erotic experience at a time.

Step 1

Shop around for the best deals. There are chains of hedonism-style resorts that are marketed under one brand name (e.g., Sandals, Hedonism) and independents that are owned and operated as franchises or by individuals seeking a single venue on which to lavish their time and attention. Consider more than just price and age demographics when you choose from these types of accommodations.

How to Choose a Middle-Aged Hedonism Resort

Step 2

Get recommendations. Have your middle-aged friends holidayed at a hedonism resort? Did they come away with very few photos but plenty of racy memories? That’s where you want to go for your getaway. Ask your friends about everything from cleanliness to food and weather to atmosphere. The goal here is to get away—really away—yet know that a management team is nearby to solve dilemmas that have been known to arise even during the most idyllic vacation.

Step 3

Connect with travel agents, even if you don’t intend to book your hedonism-focused trip with them (though many are in a position to get you better deals than you might find on the Internet). These folks know where middle-aged clients have had terrific experiences and the places to avoid.

Step 4

Check with the State Department to make certain locations you’re considering aren’t dangerous to visit. Traveling outside the United States isn’t the carefree experience it was in the past. The government monitors trouble spots so tourists can travel with full knowledge of what to expect in different parts of the world. If you have concerns about this, focus your search for the perfect hedonism resort catering to middle-aged adults within the 50 states.

How to Choose a Middle-Aged Hedonism Resort

Step 5

Narrow down your top picks to get an accurate assessment of the demographic picture each resort paints. Finding yourself on-site with a predominant mix of young couples, each of whom looks suspiciously around the ages of your children, can be a downer for middle-age travelers. Since the objective of a trip to a hedonism resort is to abandon one’s inhibitions, learning the age range of a resort’s populace is nearly as important as getting the privacy you seek.

Step 6

Eschew the most extreme resorts on your list if you want to go wild but have been known to put checks and balances on your behaviors when push comes to shove. If the thought of nude bathing makes your pulse rate jump but you know that even a couple of glasses of wine couldn’t get you to strip down and step into the hot tub with your pals, you can still go crazy by finding a middle-aged destination that offers you the chance to don a thong or a skimpy Speedo. Don’t pay extra for nude beaches when the chances you’ll skinny-dip are iffy.

How to Choose a Middle-Aged Hedonism Resort

Step 7

Feel free to negotiate your package once you’ve made a final choice. Speak with sales and marketing staff. Ask about specials and amenities by playing the research card. If you’ve found a hedonism resort on Jamaica that has everything you want but the crowd is simply too young, contact others in the area. Tell them what you’ve been offered and see if you can build another day’s stay or a massage into the package as an incentive for switching venues (which you intend to do anyway).

Step 8

Find out if the hedonism resort you’ve chosen offers a frequent stay program. Once you walk on the wild side and realize that the term “middle-age” really is relative, you might never again be satisfied with touring museums and churches. After all, you’ve earned those birthdays and the right to call your own shots—dressed or not so much.
