@DaniaChicago It was the gateway to my dark and tortured relationship with carbs.
OMG! Carbs!?! I just wrote a card referencing my carb addiction. I didn't post it yet @beywatch.
I remember eating it, but I don't remember liking it. LOL
No wonder Play-Doh was so delicious to me as a child.
This looks like a lot of fun.

Top 05 Best Telescopes For Kids In Love With Astronomy
Exploring the sky with a telescope can be a rich, fun, and fascinating experience for children of all ages. With a wide variety of telescopes for beginners, it can be difficult to choose the right one to bring the moon, stars, and planets closer together. Do not panic! Here's a list of our picks and items to consider when buying a kids telescope. What to look for in the best telescope for kids: • Aperture is the most important function of the telescope. The size of the aperture determines how much light the telescope receives and how much light it receives the wider the aperture, the brighter and clearer the image. However, the wider the aperture, the wider The Best Telescope for Teenager, so you need to balance it. • Which type of telescope: glass, reflector or composite - we'll take a closer look at the different strengths and weaknesses of the different telescope styles below, but here's a shorter version. Reflective telescopes can only see the sky, while reflectors and compound telescopes can see the earth and sky at night. Reflective visors usually take up less space and are a little more powerful for children if they are only interested in astronomical activities, but they also require maintenance. Refractory telescopes tend to be long and thin, but they are perfect for kids who simply don't want to use the telescope to observe planets and stars and have probably never thought about turning it off. The compound telescope has two mirrors, which are more powerful but provide a darker image than the other two styles. They are great for astrophotography. • Magnification is determined by the telescope eyepiece. Significant increases are important, but the cost depends on the openness. Tall eyepieces are not very effective with telescopes with small apertures. Many telescopes have multiple eyepieces for viewing with increasingly lower magnifications. • Many telescopes include accessories such as tripods. Bring astronomy software home and reduce your initial investment. All these aspects must be considered when choosing a telescope for children. However, there are a few things to keep in mind. • Children's telescopes should be easy and simple to use. Super complex telescopes are no longer fun. • Compact size is important. Younger children don't like to use large telescopes. • Maintenance of the child's telescope is required. Many small and fragile parts can easily be lost or damaged. Unfortunately, there are many telescopes that are perfect for young astronomers. 01.

It has several strengths and weaknesses associated with it. Not all binoculars are the same size and only the best telescopes will fit in that position.

It has a large lens that illuminates the glass in front of the telescope tube. This glass mirror reflects IPC light. Reflector Telescopes: The reflector uses a telescopic mirror to reflect light into the IPC. IPS is usually in front of the telescope (but not always). These telescopes have a large diameter, typically 114mm to 150mm for entry-level models. Compound (aka SCT or Maksutov) Telescopes: These telescopes combine the mirror and the lens to bring the air in a closed tube closer to the viewer. Like the refraction device, this type of telescope usually has an IPS behind the telescope. RELATED POSTS HERE

My 90s Toys Are Better Than Yours ;)
1) Polly Pocket Polly Pocket was seriously one of the best toys I ever had. I remember when I was a little girl, I stole one and I was too little to realize what I was doing. But I went home with a Polly Pocket and I was the happiest girl ever. Although I had an impressive world of Barbie dolls and Barbie things, I think I appreciated Polly Pocket the most -- probably because I was able to take it everywhere I went. And my imagination with wild with these toys. POLLY!!! 2) Tamagotchi Yess! I vividly remember having these in elementary school. I remember the teachers had to make the ban on them, because the students (including me) were HIGHLY addicted to them. They pooped, they slept, and they grew! Since it was like taking care of a real pet, you had to pay attention to them. If you ever ignored them for a long period of time, you came back to a shit mess, or sometimes they die. :( Can we please bring these back? 3) Bop It This is also on the list of one of the most addicting games ever. I am not even sure why I was so addicted to Bop It, but it was such an intriguing game. It's basically a memory toy. I would play this game hours on end. I remember even fighting with my sister for my turn to play the game. BOP IT! TWIST IT! PULL IT! 4) Easy Bake Oven Who was the best baker in the world? I WAS. This was the only time baking came easy. I can still remember the taste of the slightly-fake-tasting brownie. Every Time I used the toy, I definitely had to have my mother around to use it. Ever heard of the burning accidents from this toy -- I can totally believe. That Easy Bake Oven got hot. Brownies, anyone? 5) FURBY Goodness, this shit was scary. But I still played with it. During the day time I was in love with Furby, during the night time, I kept one eye open -- thanks to the 80s movie, Gremlins. And since Furby was technically a furry robot, it will go through it's weird tech-y things and do things on it's own. I still kinda like you, Furby. Kinda. 6) Super Soaker One of the COOLEST toys I had as a kid. This was freakin' fun as heck! And living in MIami where there was warm weather all year long, this toy came in handy. Who's going to get soaked today?! What kind of toys did you grow up having? My childhood was at its prime during the 1990s (I am an 80s baby!) Can I just please be a kid again???
Wonder Weeks là gì? Biểu hiện chung của wonder weeks
Thuật ngữ Wonder Weeks có thể đã trở nên quen thuộc với nhiều bậc cha mẹ. Tuy nhiên, cũng không ít người bối rối khi thấy con mình trở nên khó chịu bất thường. Những thông tin về Wonder Weeks hay biểu hiện của trẻ khi bước vào khoảng thời gian này sẽ giúp cha mẹ thấu hiểu con yêu hơn. 1. Lịch sử của Wonder Weeks Năm 1992, hai nhà nghiên cứu về tâm lý giáo dục, sinh học hành vi người Hà Lan là tiến sĩ Frans X. Plooij và vợ của ông là tiến sĩ Hetty van de Rijt đã xuất bản một cuốn sách có tựa đề Wonder Weeks. Cuốn sách của họ là một tập hợp thông tin về cách trẻ sơ sinh phát triển và những gì cha mẹ có thể làm để hỗ trợ con trong từng giai đoạn. Từ sự phổ biến của cuốn sách Wonder Weeks, thuật ngữ này đã được sử dụng với tần suất nhiều hơn. Nhiều bậc cha mẹ đã tìm kiếm trong cuốn sách Wonder weeks để hiểu rõ hơn lý do tại sao em bé của họ cư xử khác nhau giữa những giai đoạn phát triển. 2. Wonder Weeks chính xác là gì? Wonder weeks là một thuật ngữ dùng để mô tả các giai đoạn phát triển mạnh mẽ của trẻ sơ sinh. Có những giai đoạn cao điểm khi mà bé phát triển nhanh chóng về cả thể chất và tinh thần. Ngược lại, có những khoảng thời gian bố mẹ không cảm nhận thấy con mình thay đổi nhiều. Sự tiến bộ vượt bậc này có thể nhận thấy qua các kĩ năng như học ngồi, học bò, cố gắng đứng vững và sau đó là tập đi. Một số nghiên cứu đã chỉ ra rằng những thay đổi tinh thần rõ ràng thường xảy ra trong não của trẻ dưới 20 tháng tuổi. Sau khoảng thời gian này, sự thay đổi tính cách và thể chất tiếp tục lớn hơn và phát triển hơn trước nữa để trẻ bước sang giai đoạn trưởng thành. 3. Khi nào là Wonder Weeks? Thời gian bước vào Wonder weeks thường phụ thuộc vào từng bé. Có tất cả các yếu tố ảnh hưởng đến sự phát triển của trẻ sơ sinh như di truyền, môi trường, giới tính, sinh non, anh chị em,... Nhưng thời gian trung bình được dự đoán là Wonder Weeks thường xảy ra: 5 tuần 8 tuần 12 tuần 17 tuần 26 tuần 36 tuần 44 tuần 53 tuần Bên cạnh Wonder weeks thì đi kèm theo là thuật ngữ “ Sunny weeks” hay còn gọi là nắng tuần. Đây là những tuần sau khi một em bé tiến bộ qua Wonder weeks và bước vào một giai đoạn phát triển hoàn toàn mới. Bố mẹ có thể cảm thấy bé có vẻ thấy hạnh phúc hơn nhiều, chăm chỉ để học các kỹ năng mới và muốn cho thế giới thấy mình thông minh như thế nào. Trong những tuần nắng, các bé thường sẽ ngủ và bú tốt hơn, sẵn sàng khám phá và ít bám víu hơn. Cũng giống như Wonder Weeks, Sunny Weeks thay đổi tùy theo từng bé. Những thống kê trung bình sẽ vào khoảng: 6 tuần 10 tuần 13 tuần 21 tuần 31 tuần 39 tuần 49 tuần 58 tuần 4. Biểu hiện của Wonder week Bố mẹ có thể dự đoán con của mình đang bước vào thời gian Wonder weeks với một số biểu hiện sau: Quấy khóc cả ngày. Đang ngủ ngon dậy khóc, càng dỗ càng khóc to và dường như không có cách gì để bé ngừng khóc. Chán ăn, bỏ ăn, ăn ít (trước đó đang ăn rất tốt). Đòi bế cả ngày, bám mẹ nhiều hơn. Nhút nhát hơn, sợ người lạ. Ghen tị. Thay đổi tâm trạng nhanh chóng, đang vui có thể ngay lập tức khóc, đang khóc trở nên vui luôn. Mút tay nhiều, thích ôm ấp một món đồ quen thuộc nhiều hơn. 5. Bạn nên làm gì trong Wonder weeks của trẻ? Đầu tiên, Wonder Weeks có thể làm các bậc cha mẹ thấy căng thẳng và mệt mỏi. Do vậy, chính bạn cần phải giữ sức khỏe và tinh thần tốt để chăm sóc tốt nhất cho bé. Bạn cần hiểu rằng bé quấy khóc không phải là một trạng thái vĩnh viễn. Hoặc dấu hiệu đòi bế, bám mẹ nhiều nhơn là thể hiện sự thiếu an toàn trong quá trình thay đổi tinh thần của bé. Do vậy, hãy ôm ấp và trấn an em bé của bạn sẽ giúp con cảm thấy tốt hơn. Bố mẹ cũng nên dành nhiều thời gian ở bên con trong thời gian này. Các bậc cha mẹ có thể nhận thấy sự thay đổi trong thói quen ăn uống và ngủ của bé. Bạn có thể thay đổi thực đơn để con cảm thấy ngon miệng và dễ chịu hơn. 6. Nguyên nhân khác ảnh hưởng hành vi của trẻ ngoài Wonder weeks Không chỉ trong thời gian Wonder weeks, em bé của bạn có thể quấy khóc vì một số nguyên nhân sau: Bé không khỏe: Ốm đau, nhiệt độ tăng cao, cảm lạnh đều là những nguyên nhân làm trẻ khó chịu và quấy khóc. Thay đổi môi trường: Chuyển nhà hoặc căng thẳng trong gia đình đều có thể là nguyên nhân thay đổi hành vi của trẻ sơ sinh. Mọc răng Thay đổi trong giấc ngủ: sự mệt mỏi, chuyển nơi ngủ từ cũi sang giường cũng có thể gây ra khó chịu cho trẻ. Em bé của bạn có thể thuộc nhóm nhạy cảm ơn những đứa trẻ khác nên chỉ cần những dấu hiệu nhỏ cũng làm ảnh hưởng đến tinh thần. Nếu bạn thật sự đang lo lắng về em bé của mình, hãy liên hệ với chuyên gia chăm sóc sức khỏe để kiểm tra tình trạng của con.
Types Of Painting
Painting might seem an easy task to do with its definition being so simple, but there's poetry in every stroke of color and a story behind each picture that an artist or painter wants to portray. Painting has been a method of displaying art for a long period and there have been different techniques to do so. There are a variety of painting procedures and each of them is beautiful and unique on its own. A beginner needs great dedication and patience to pursue the journey of being an artist and to learn any painting technique completely. We have previously covered some of the painting techniques in our first blog about the same. Here we present other styles of painting that are currently popular that one can try and get along with. Watercolor Painting Watercolor painting is as common as oil and acrylic painting. This is a well-known technique in which the colors are mixed with water to create the art. The paper sheets are used to create watercolor art most of the time. Watercolors, on the other hand, can be used to create art on bark paper, soap sheets, wooden blocks, and papyrus. Even finger paintings with watercolors are done in many parts of the world, such as China. Pencil Sketches I am one of those people who are fond of watching pencil sketches. The depth and details can just blow away your mind. It takes effort to understand the tones and grades for each piece and part of the art. These are made from graphite materials. Pencils are most often used because of their simplicity and versatility. Graphite can be smudged like kohl and thus can enhance the beauty of anything depicted on paper; it simply brings your thoughts to life. Glass Paintings Ever visited monuments and wondered about the beauty of glass paintings? The Greek and Roman cultures have portrayed some delightful art through glass paintings. The multicolor display of images and thoughts is amazing and gets even more personified when the light passes through the medium. It simply illuminates the locations. You can find them at old monuments and churches as well. They are inspired by the concept of stained glass painting. Collage Painting It is a very beautiful form of art. It is formed by assembling various creative pieces to form a visual effect of an image. A collage can be made from a variety of materials, including paper scraps, ribbons, magazines, newspapers, paint colors, and so on. is the accumulation of different pieces of art brought together to represent a single entity. It can have various themes and requires less budget yet comes out as an astonishing piece of art. Spray Painting. These are made out of aerosol painting sprays and are specially used on walls. They are magnificent; the colored area is kept open, while the other area is closed to keep the color from spreading all around them. These are the other painting techniques that exist and are trending today. Visit sites like Shopify to buy your painting essentials.
Power Tools: To Repair or to Replace?
For construction or DIY lovers, a power tool can become almost like a son or a daughter. It sounds crazy, but a good, reliable power tool that helps you through every little project, no matter how challenging it can be, that tool becomes special. First, you start to like it, and later to call it your favourite tool. Then, you use it so much that the handle adapts perfectly to your hand. But with so much use, and no matter how good the power tool is, the day comes when it breaks. Will you go for a power tool repair? or for a power tool replacement? The decision will rest primarily on costs. The cost of repair vs the price of a brand new tool with the same characteristics, you certainly do not want to pay more for a repair than for buying it brand new. It is common to see that scenario with cheaper power tools, but when it comes to high-quality power tools, the durability of each part and the lower price for spares make it more convenient to repair. So do not make a quick decision on the matter. Instead, keep on reading to find out all you need to know to make the right decision. You might end up saving your favourite tool or falling in love with a new one. What kind of power tools can be repaired? You can repair every power tool! Interestingly, power tools die because of heavy use and only one of the components breaks, gets damaged, or runs out of grip. Usually, the components that break are: 1) Switch 2) Drive belt 3) Brushes 4) Power cords That is excellent news for you because you can easily find these parts from power tools online, and you can replace them yourself or send them to a factory authorised power tool repair shop for a replacement. The most popular brands have excellent availability of spare parts, usually for their more expensive models. Nevertheless, it is good for you to know which power tool manufacturers are the ones that provide more spare parts. The list of manufactures includes but is not limited to: · AEG · Arbortech · Black & Decker · Bosch · DeWalt · Dirt Devil · Dremel · Fein · Festool · Green Machine · Hitachi · Homelite · Husqvarna · Makita · Metabo · Milwaukee · Panasonic · Paslode · Protool · Ryobi · Skil · Vax Knowing that these brands provide easy access to their spare parts can help you decide which power tool you should buy so that you can rest assured that you can keep your power tool for a long time. That leads us to an important principle when buying a new power tool. More expensive is saving in the long run When shopping for a power tool, it is easy to find the right tool and look for the brand and model that sells it for cheaper. That kind of choice gives us an instant saving, but that could eventually backfire on you with time. More affordable power tools are more inexpensive for a reason, less power, weaker materials, lower reliability and longevity. But, on the other hand, more expensive power tools are made of better materials, better quality and replaceable parts. Therefore, when buying a new power tool, don't be cheap! Instead, think long-term and look for a high-quality power tool that, if it fails, you can quickly repair. Making the decision Your power tool is now broken, and it is time to decide whether to repair or replace it. What factors should you consider? 1) Cost of a new tool. Of course, the first item to consider is the cost of a new tool. Make sure that you are honest with yourself on this research. It is tempting to get a new tool, but ask yourself: Does the new tool have the same capabilities? If it is cheaper than your previous power tool, why is that so? Does the new power tool have spare parts available online? These questions will help you analyse the option objectively. 2) Cost of repair. In the same line as above, what would be the cost of repair? Is the cost a small percentage of the price of a new one? Depending on the quality of the power tool and how much you enjoy using it, how much are you willing to pay compared to the original price? You should never go beyond 80% of the cost of a new one that has the exact specifications. 3) How long it lasted before breaking. This point is often missed by many, but it is crucial to consider. Maybe your power tool is expensive, it is of high quality, it has spare parts available, but it broke after a year. That tells you that the power tool you have is not the right one for you. You probably need a power tool for bigger jobs or even higher quality to keep up with a large amount of use. So if it fails within a year, consider looking for a new one but on a higher tier of models. 4) Performance. Only you can have a saying on this point. Did the power tool perform as you like? How satisfied are you with it? The better it functions, and the more satisfied you are, the more reasons you have to repair that favourite power tool. 5) Original objective for the tool. Why did you get that power tool in the first place? Did it work for what you wanted? If not, it is time to change directions and replace the power tool for what you need. Again, make sure to get advice from experts on choosing the right tool. 6) Power tool repair shop. Do you have a trusted power tool repair shop in the area? The last thing you want to do is to send your power tool to an enthusiast repairer that will try to figure it out for you. A bad repair on your power tool will extend the pain of having a non-working power tool. Make sure to only go to factory authorised power tool repair shops. Some even offer power tool repair pick-ups from your house so that you don't have to travel. What is it going to be? After carefully analysing the situation, you can make the right decision on your favourite power tool. If it is to replace it, make sure to invest in a better quality power tool that you can quickly repair if it breaks in the future. Remember to do this only if the objective for your power tool remains the same. Also, consider the demand of your tool at your work to see if you need a model from a higher tier. If you decide to repair the tool, don't leave it in the wrong hands! Instead, take it to a factory authorised power tool repair shop that you can trust. Where can you go? No matter if you want to repair or replace it, there is one place that you should go. F&K Power tools is the best power tools shop online. Also, with a store in Sydney, F&K Power Tools offers factory authorised power tools repair with pick-up and delivery in all Sydney. Visit their website today or call them to get their expert advice!
