Online Resources for Making Sure a Theme Park is Safe

A trip to a theme park is one of the most popular ways for people to spend their time off, and has been for nearly the past century now. This popular pastime shows: there are over 400 amusement parks in the USA alone, together attracting 290 million visitors and generating $12 billion in revenues each year. However, while it is certainly a fun and exciting way to unwind, theme parks have been known to be dangerous places too. While you are not guaranteeing yourself an injury whenever you step onto the Big Dipper, there are risks involved whenever you visit an amusement park. What’s more, some amusement parks tend to be safer than others. While major parks like Disney Land or Six Flags have great guarantees of safety, smaller parks may be less reputable.

Fishing is Fun!

I did not know how fun the fishing was until I got there to the US. Though I lived near by the big lake when I was still in the Philippines, I did not get a chance to go fishing as I wanted because my father would not let us go to the lake for a reason that we might get drown because none of his kids don’t know how to swim.

My hubby is a big fishing fanatic. He is the best fishing guide of the family and friends. After I moved in with him that is when I began to like fishing. I used to be scared in the boat and in deep water but I overcame that now that I have gotten used to spend a lot of time in the lake. We have a boat and live only about a mile from the boat landing. During summer is when we often go fishing.

Fishing is a fun thing to do but it can also be hard work. I like to fish but I don’t like to clean them. I feel relax when I fish. Fishing indeed is a great pass time for the family. The exciting of fighting a fish brings joy.

Hammock Chairs & Swings

Rainbow Hammock ChairWhile a large part of the country is locked into severe drought conditions, we have been doing fairly well here in the north country. We seem to be getting rains just in the nick of time to keep our garden healthy and strong. We got a pretty early start this year because of the warm weather but without the rain it would have been all for naught.

Comfortable and Stylish

Gardening and fishing are two of my favorite things to do during summer. After our fishing excursion, we like to sit out on our deck and watch our garden grow while my hubby is drinking a cold beer and I am relaxing. Our garden furniture is nothing special. The table and chairs that we have are made of cheap plastic. If we buy additional garden furniture, I am sure it will be a Hammock Chair. I recently ran across this chair at YardEnvy.com. This chair looks very comfortable to sit in while catching a few rays. In the spring time, when the sun is still low in the sky, you get good exposure but in the heat of the summer, the umbrella keeps you in the cool shade.

The hammock chair allows you to swing freely or spin yourself like on a merry-go-round, whichever you prefer. It is an award winning chair. When I first saw this kind of recliner, I was blown away by the design of it. If you are in the market for some new deck or garden furniture, you should check out this hammock chair. I think this is probably the coolest and most comfortable recliner I have ever seen. We have a reclining chair in our living room but we don’t have anything like that for outdoors. As a matter of fact, the deck furniture that we have now is not really all that great so we have been thinking about buying some deck or garden furniture that is a little more comfortable and stylish.

Question Answered

The subject of my last topic on Sasquatch was whether they migrate south during the winter or find a relatively warm place to hunkered down during the long Minnesota winters. We had been leaning towards the idea of migration but the representative from the Bigfoot research organization believed that they hung around.

That question was conclusively answered about a month ago in mid February, at least for our local population. We found a set of tracks in the deep snow at a location where we had found tracks before. Although the tracks were probably a couple of weeks old, it seems highly unlikely that they could have been made by anything other than a Bigfoot.

The tracks were located in two foot deep snow that had melted and then been covered with another few inches of snow again. As a result, they did not show much detail but the prints showed a consistent left-right pattern with the usual offset in one location and a stride in excess of six feet while going up a slight grade. I know of no other animal that could have left that kind of trail. Clearly the results of a very large bi-pedal animal. We also found several very large impressions in the snow along the trail which indicated that the animal had either lain down or crouched down in the snow.

Multitude of Road Kill

The subject of what they would eat during the winter is easily answered when you drive down the roads around here and observe the multitude of road kill that has been fresh frozen during the winter. Large numbers of deer and other animals are easy pickings for both Bigfoot and the many other predatory animals that spend the winters here. I have even seen many bald eagles recently who would tend to fly south during the winter to open water.

I will admit the evidence of one animal here during February does not conclusively answer the question. Some may hang around their summer home range during the winter and some may be snow birds but this proves, at least, that some do hang around here during the winter time.
