Review: National Geographic Kids Hey, Baby!

I was blessed by Moms Meet to get National Geographic Kids Hey Baby. A collection of pictures, poems, and stories from Nature’s Nursery. It’s a very uplifting book and not just because of the beautiful animals but the text as well. Our favorite was of course the mini mountain lions get a smelly friend (a skunk of course!) On page 22, 23. We use to have a pet skunk named Stinky.

The really great thing about National Geographic Kids Hey Baby book is the cool educational tidbits on a lot of the pages. It was information that could be easily remembered. I would recommend it to anyone!

Unfollow LinkedIn Contacts Easily

Unfollowing LinnkedIn contacts is now much easier then it use to be. I have for the longest time complained and contacted LinkedIn for an easier way to unfollow connections. I found it upsetting that simply by accepting a connection request you were automatically forced to follow their updates. And with Klout and the evil Empire Kred many were posting ONLY PICTURES on LinkedIn as updates! I guess these LinkedIn connections are really showing they need a job! I could understand if you are from a graphics artist, these people were not. Seriously pictures of like the sky, castles, lakes etc. As though it was some sort of social media platform used to waste time instead of a professional networking used to share, learn, get a job, and inform friends of things. I simply could not believe people were doing this for countless reasons besides stupidity. But whatever. That aside. I don’t need these time wasters, no understanding the concept of professionalism in my feed. So over the years I had manually unfollowed well over 1500 LinkedIn contacts when I got bored or added new contacts. Don’t get me wrong, I follow LinkedIn professionals who post professional things. Not pictures all freakin day long.

LinkedIn finally heard the pleas of I’m sure masses in the same boat as I. I’ve often Googled for apps that would unfollow, or ANYTHING that would simply work. I felt as though my life was wasting away. Click, click, unfollow, repeat. Until finally one day when I logged in and went hunting about.

BAM all the people you are following on LinkedIn one easy place. Click unfollow on those you wish to unfollow. It’s rather easy and SUPER quick if you have Chrome add ons that block all the spam and needless other things loaded on their site. This page is also an easy way to weed out connections you may have regretting connecting to in the first place. You know people with no photos, or no real profile who simply don’t belong there or forgot all about it.

Please note that LinkedIn figures are not exact. You will have less photos of people listed then what you are indeed following. By that I mean, you will have 150 pictured, but the following amount on the top of the page may say 160. Part of this is due to blocking people.

Review: Himalaya Botanique Complete Care Toothpaste

I was blessed to get the Himalaya Botanique Complete Care Toothpaste from MomsMeet to review. Let me tell you I was shocked! I was provided with SIX different toothpastes to test! It was like Christmas as there was other goodies as well. I admit I have never tried Cinnamon toothpaste before.  I went right for it when I saw it in the box. So I’m featuring it over the rest because its so pleasantly strange to me. All the toothpastes were great, left me with a long lasting feeling, CLEAN feeling as my tongue would slide across my teeth to check. I couldn’t tell any difference between this and other brands except I felt cleaner with less pressure scrubbing if that makes any sense. Some toothpastes I find I have to press hard to achieve their so called total cleaning. I felt no need to press hard while brushing. And my gums thanked me for it!

I found the Simply Cinnamon Himalaya toothpaste completely awesome. I didn’t want to stop brushing. It reminds me of Big Red Gum (if that’s still around) but not anywhere near as hot! I looked forward to brushing my teeth with it. It’s strange though brushing with green toothpaste. But then again most things natural are a bit strange, doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing.

How to manually update Pinball Arcade via Amazon

If you own Pinball Arcade via Amazon and I don’t mean the underground version, then this article is to help you. Be sure your icon for the game matches the one on this page: You can tell there has been an update if you scroll down and look at Product details, latest developer update. Keep in mind, you can only update the app if there is an update for you. So you do have the ability to force an update if desired.

Kindle Fire: Turn the unit on. Click on the icon that says AppStore. Once loaded, click on the hamburger menu top left looks like =. Click On App Updates. Now you should see your Pinball Arcade listed there. Sometimes you have the ability to click the update button. Sometimes not. If not, and you know there is an update because the above link shows it updated on a certain day… click the actual game icon in that menu. It will lead you directly to the game page, click update. Once you open the game click the gear icon top right and select manage tables. Click download owned and also update all. That way you are fully set.

Kindle Fire second gen: Turn the unit on. Click the text at the top that says Shop, then click apps on the left menu. Click the hamburger menu at the top left, looks like =. Click On App Updates. Now you should see your Pinball Arcade listed there. Sometimes you have the ability to click the update button. Sometimes not. If not, and you know there is an update because the above link shows it updated on a certain day… click the actual game icon in that menu. It will lead you directly to the game page, click update. Once you open the game click the gear icon top right and select manage tables. Click download owned and also update all. That way you are fully set.

If you are unsure which is your Kindle, read and follow each set of directions to see which one you can follow via your Kindle.

I wrote this because I was really annoyed that Amazon hides this version even if you own it! So you can’t just go to the app in the store on the Kindle and select update like in the past. It took me a while to figure out how to force an update. I hope you find this useful and hopefully unnecessary as Amazon makes it possible to update right away.

CPAP In-Line Disposable Bacteria Filters – Get Some!

As previously mentioned I suffer from Sleep Apnea. I am paranoid about germs, always have been. So I went hunting one day to see what I could further do to make sure the air I was breathing in all night was better than the air I was breathing in all during the day. I found CPAP in-line bacteria filters. At first I was concerned that they might lower the level of air pressure I was getting then I was concerned about how well they might actually work.

I had purchased two types. Type one was hard plastic from Kinship Comfort Brands. These were pretty nice hard plastic but when connected just below my mask to the heated tubing it would squeak as it spun around with my movements. This was slightly annoying but nothing I couldn’t deal with. They cost about $33 for a package of ten via Amazon.

The second type I purchased was soft plastic from Health Care Essentials. The soft plastic I quickly figured out didn’t make any noise as it spun around my mask connection and heated tubing. This was downright awesome. But there was a bigger more horrible problem. These soft plastic filters smell rotten, off somehow I can’t put my finger on. They were $17.99 with free shipping and as you can see a massive price difference. The actual filters inside the plastic units are exactly the same. The numbering on each is exactly the same. It’s just the outside that’s different and of course the actual air smell quality.

I feel these filters are a must and I have even used them during Corner Stones meeting with a sleep specialist. So I know they recommend them as well or they wouldn’t use them themselves. I also know they are working because of the massive color change by the end of the month. If you have allergies, a smoker in the house, pets like dogs or cats please consider getting some of these filters.

About each product.
CPAP Filters housed in plastic frame.
Replace Disposable foam filter frame units with Single Use Only.
Kinship In-line Bacteria Filters are a must-have CPAP supply for any customer that suffers from allergies.
99.92% Bacteria CPAP/BIPAP Filters.
Disposable foam filter frame units are not intended to be cleaned, but rather changed out.
The second set of filters made of soft plastic:
AirLife disposable respiratory filter traps bacteria and viral particles by electrostatic attraction and its dense makeup. Filter provides defense against infection. Small, lightweight and translucent, our hydrophobic filter resists moisture and offers easy visualization of water buildup. Latex-free.

I noticed during the winter months when my house was closed up I didn’t notice the odor the second set of CPAP filters was giving off. So I’ll try and use those during the winter months to save money, but when my house is open to the fresh air I simply must have and recommend the Kinship CPAP in line filters. They are to be changed monthly. And they are larger than they appear. The actual filter unit is about the side of Pringles lid. I had hoped because I was placing it just below my mask it would be smaller easier to sleep with but I had to make due with it. They fit perfect on the Dreamstation CPAP machine by Philips Respironics.

As with all my blog entries this is my own ordeal insights and feelings. No money or trade was exchanged for this entry.
